Cranberries for the other 364 days of the year.

My least favorite side on the Thanksgiving spread was once cranberry sauce. Then it was my turn to prepare this giant feast. Being the budding foodie that I was at the time, I tweaked all the recipes with new ingredients and flavors that peaked my interest. Three years later, I can’t seem to get enough of these things on Thanksgiving, and (gasp) I may make them again. This side dish/ leftover tastes great on bagels, oatmeal, yogurt, and just as is by themselves.

Fall = Time For Homemade Applesauce!

One of my favorite things about fall is making applesauce. Canning homemade applesauce has been a family tradition as long as I can remember. Growing up with my grandparents, we had 50 acres of apple trees in our backyard. We didn’t maintain the orchard, so the apples weren’t always pretty, but they were perfect for cooking, baking and canning. Every fall we spent at least a day picking the apples, cooking them into sauce and canning enough for the year ahead. To this day, I can’t bring myself to buy the…

Rhubarb Three Ways: Rhubarb Compote

Continuing with the rhubarb recipes, this compote is a delightfully easy way to add a little zing to waffles, yogurt or scones. It comes together in about half an hour, you can start is simmering on the stove and then make a batch of cream scones, lovely adapted from the Holy Grail of breakfast cookbooks. I’ve made this compote a number of times this spring. The first time I made is I used a delightful amount of deep brown sugar. I loved, loved, loved the flavor…

Making Man Jam: Peach Ginger and Almond Conserve

A few weeks ago after a, do forgive the pun, fruitful trip to Michigan, my kitchen became jam central. For three days and nights I peeled, pitted, sliced, macerated, stirred, simmered, and ultimately canned my way through nearly fifty pounds of fruit. When it was over the kitchen floor was shiny and sticky, and I added sixty-five jars of jams, preserves, conserves, spoonsweets, and compotes to my basement larder.

Fried Green Tomatoes with Crab and Remoulade Sauce

Inspiration: I have had this recipe bookmarked since the day that I ran across it last year, just waiting for some green tomatoes to grace my kitchen. Luckily, Brandon’s parents are awesome and stocked us up with a whole heap of amazing produce from their garden the other day, including three gorgeous green tomatoes. Brandon and I both adore them, so we couldn’t wait to use them.

Pea Shoot Pesto

Hi bloggy world! Hi, hi, hi! Sorry, I’m really excited to be writing a post. I’ve missed this! And I know, I know, we JUST covered pesto like two posts ago, but this is different. Really. I promise! First, let me rewind a bit. This past week and a half, my mom has been visiting me. We decided to hit ‘em up style this trip, so we basically ate our way through my dream restaurant list in the NYC area.

Some Like It HOT! Salvadoran Salsa!

This salsa recipe arrived in my kitchen due to my complaints that I had more radishes and habanero chile peppers than recipes to use them. My dear friend Rosalynn, who is from El Salvador, listened to my litany. Then she tilted her head to the side as she asked, €œToo much food, how does one have too much food?€ I blushed and lowered my eyes. Hastily I explained that radishes and habanero chilies are not the sort of surplus foods that one can binge upon easily. She promptly agreed.

Getting Hot with Jen and her Picante Salsa

Today’s ‘Sundays with Friends’ comes from a true Southern Belle that I met at my real job. *smiles* I feel very blessed to have met her, because she has been there when I have needed her in the past couple of years. She swears that her Southern accent has rubbed off on me, and I’€™ll admit it, it has indeed.
