The Food Matters Project: More Rhubarb Creations

And the rhubarb download the face of the rhubarb shortage, or aversion, everyone got very, very creative. I think this is the last of the group. If I missed anyone, a thousand apologies. I'll circle back and catch anyone I missed later this week.

Several bloggers cooked, but decided not to record their experience. Better left forgotten, I suppose. To those folks, thanks for trying it!

Again, I just wanted to say THANK YOU. I am in awe of your culinary fortitude and am honored to be part of this creative group.

Lexi from Lexi's Kitchen made exactly what the original recipe was: fish in rhubarb sauce. And, even more impressively, she made a savory rhubarb-lover out of her husband. Nice job! I love that she added fish sauce to the dish. I am writing that one down for when I cook this recipe again this week.

Maryfran of Franny Cakes doesn't like seafood and couldn't find rhubarb, so she went a completely different direction and blogged about a warm broccoli + quinoa salad. Yum!

Jen from the team at Small College Kitchen made fish in caramel sauce with tangy fruit salad and rice. This sounds and looks delish.

Sara of Simply Whole Kitchen opted to bake, instead of braise, her fish and served it with a fruit salsa. So pretty and, I'm certain, delicious.

Alissa of Big Eats Tiny Kitchen braised chicken in a rhubarb-honey sauce for a Sweet and Sour Rhubarb dish. Oh, my! If only I could stick chopsticks into my screen and get a piece of that lovely dish.

Again, if I missed anyone, the omission was unintentional. I'll check back later this week and post any creations that I didn't catch this time around. Thank you, all, again for your efforts and fab culinary creations. It's been an adventure this week.

Quick Pickled Red Onions and Radishes

If you've been reading my blog for even a short amount of time, you probably know how much I love to pickle things. I was just telling a friend you can pickle - with vinegar - or you can ferment - with salt - for similar delicious effect. The latter has digestive benefits and I love to do that, but when I need that pop of sour flavor quickly, I whip up quick pickles that are ready in as little as a day or two. I've Pickled Blueberries , Pickled Asparagus , Pickled Cranberries , Pickled Pumpkin , and even Pickled Chard Stems ! This I did last night for an upcoming recipe challenge that requires I include radishes. Ummmm...of course I'm pickling them! Ingredients  makes 1 quart jar radishes, trimmed and sliced organic red onions, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer) 3/4 C vinegar (I used white distilled vinegar) 3/4 C water 3 T organic granulated sugar 1 T salt (I used some grey sea salt) 6 to 8 grinds of black pepper Proce

Hot Chocolate Agasajo-Style {Spice It Up!}

photo by D For my Spice It Up! kiddos this week, I was looking for an exotic drink to serve while we learned about saffron. I found a recipe from food historian Maricel Presilla that mimicked traditional Spanish hot chocolate from the 17th century where it was served at lavish receptions called agasajos . When I teach, I don't always get to shoot photos. Thankfully, D grabbed my camera and snapped a few. Ingredients serves 14-16 1 gallon organic whole milk 3 T dried rosebuds - or 2 t rosewater 2 t saffron threads, lightly crushed 3 T ground cinnamon 3 whole tepin chiles, crushed 2 vanilla beans, split lengthwise 1 C organic granulated sugar 1 lb. bittersweet chocolate Procedure In a large soup pot that can hold a gallon plus, combine milk, dried rosebuds (or rosewater, if you are using that), saffron threads, ground cinnamon, chiles, vanilla beans, and sugar and warm over medium heat till it steams.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!
