Baker & Cook Notes…
TRY THIS | Quick Cranberry Sauce
Rinse fresh berries
Place in a saucepan:
2 cups of cranberries (1/2 lb.)
1/2 cup sugar, more or less to taste
2/3 cup water
squeeze of fresh lemon
pinch of cinnamon
Bring to a boil on high then reduce to medium heat
Boil until all berries pop open. Sauce will thicken upon standing.
Delicious served hot with poultry and pork!
TRY THIS | Kale Soup from Paul Crow’s Kitchen
It’s officially soup season!
½ diced onion
2 cloves of garlic
4 medium carrots chopped
4 teaspoons of olive oil
1 12oz can of kidney beans drained
1lb of kale roughly chopped
2 large tomatoes roughly chopped
1 quart of chicken broth
1 pint of tomato or V8 juice
1lb of linguica cut into pieces
½ teaspoon of black pepper
1lb of potatoes of cubed
Sweat onion, celery, and garlic in oil until translucent. Add linguica and carrots and cook until meat is rendered, about five minutes. Add beans, tomatoes, kale, potatoes, chicken broth, and tomato juice season with pepper and simmer until potatoes and carrots are tender, for about an hour. *Instead of roasting garlic in oil, try using Omega Olive Oil’s Garlic Oil, it’s to die for.
TRY THIS | Salsa Verde (Tomatillo Salsa) from Skinny Dip Farm
6 tree ripened peaches, peeled, chopped, and drained
1/2 red pepper, chopped
2 jalapeños, chopped
1/2 medium onion, chopped
Handful of strawberries chopped
1 T of honey
juice of one lime
cilantro to taste
Combine all of the ingredients above. Serve with tortilla chips.
TRY THIS | Christy’s Raw Spaghetti
1 or 2 zucchini per person (depends on size of zucchini)
a couple of diced tomatoes
red bell pepper
sundried tomatoes (optional)
1 clove of garlic
oregano (fresh or dried)
basil (fresh or dried)
a pinch of salt
a pinch of back pepper
Peel the zucchini. Use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons or grate on an old fashioned grater.
OR use a spiral slicer. Cut the peeled zucchini in half or thirds and fit it into the slicer. Turn the handle and you will get angel hair pasta styled zucchini.
You can hand dice all veggies or use food processor as follows: Put tomato and red bell pepper into food processor. The red pepper will give vibrant color and will sweeten the tomato. Add sundried tomatoes dry or in olive oil. If you have dried sundried tomatoes, soak them in water before adding them. Add crushed garlic. If you use a food processor you need to crush garlic. Add herbs, oregano, and basil. Add a pinch of salt. Add olive oil to make it rich and a pinch of cayenne, black pepper. Process it and it is ready.
I also like to use onions (whatever kind you can find at the market) and local (seeded) cucumbers. You can prepare this ahead of time, and keep the zucchini separate from the sauce until you are about to serve it. Serve everything at room temperature.
TRY THIS | Simpson Spring Cream Soda Float
1 Simpson Spring Cream Soda
1 Tall Glass
1 Scoop of your favorite Vanilla Ice Cream
For each person that you want to serve, place one scoop of vanilla ice cream into a tall glass. Pour in enough Simpson Spring Cream Soda to fill the glass. Stir until the ice cream is half melted.
TRY THIS |Donna’s Roasted New Potatoes
1 1/2 lb of new potatoes (red or yellow skinned), cleaned, cut in half or quarters
2 Tbs olive oil
2 cloves garlic, minced
1-2 tsp fresh rosemary
1/4 tsp salt & pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 450°F. Place potatoes in a mixing bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Add olive oil, rosemary, and garlic. Toss until potatoes are well coated. Spread potatoes in a single layer on a baking pan. Roast for 40 minutes, or until potatoes are cooked through and browned. Serve immediately.
TRY THIS | Lara’s Summer Treat Dessert
32 oz of your favorite local vanilla yogurt
1 jar ORANGE-CARROT-LEMON JAM
Fresh, local Blueberries (or local berried)
In a large bowl mix the yogurt with the “ORANGE-CARROT-LEMON JAM” until well blended. Pour mixture into individual bowls, then garnish with seasonal blueberries. Notes: This combination is fresh and pleasant, without being fat and sugary as a typical dessert. ORANGE-CARROT-LEMON JAM is made with whole fruits, therefore is rich in vitamins and fibers, the addition of seasonal berries makes this “dessert” even more healthy and pleasant.
TRY THIS | Ashley Kate’s Lobster in White Wine Butter Sauce
2 oz Butter
1/4 c of Olive Oil
12 cloves minced garlic
1 T Dijon Mustard
2 T Worcester Sauce
1/2 c dry white wine
1 T Fresh Lemon Juice
1-2 cups cooked lobster meat
Melt butter and oils over low heat. Add garlic and brown slightly. Wisk in mustard, Worcester and wine, simmer 5 minutes. Add lemon juice and lobster, and cook until heated. Sprinkle with fresh parsley and parmesan cheese. Serve over your choice of pasta with fresh parsley and fresh parmesan cheese.
