#SundaySupper: Rabarbersuppe Med Vin {Summer Chillin'}


The first time I made this (photo below) - Rabarbersuppe Med Vin (Danish Rhubarb Wine Soup) - I, uncharacteristically, served it to actual Danes. Normally, if I'm making a traditional recipe, I will not serve it to someone who has actually eaten it! But I did. And it was a hit.


I swapped out the traditional red wine in the recipe for whatever wine I had - leftover prosecco for the first batch and leftover Pinot Gris for this batch. My friend mentioned that she thought the recipe should have been 2 vanilla pods instead of the 2 cinnamon sticks. I did think it was odd to have whole cinnamon plus the ground cinnamon. So, for this #SundaySupper event - Summer Chillin' - and my second attempt at Rabarbersuppe Med Vin I decided to try it with the vanilla pods instead.


Ingredients

  • 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1 C water
  • 2 whole vanilla pods
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • juice from 1 lemon
  • 2 C wine (I used some left over Pinot Gris)
  • 2 C rhubarb, sliced

Procedure
Slice the vanilla pods lengthwise and scrape out the seeds. Combine water, sugar, vanilla seeds and pods in a large souppot. Cook, stirring continually, until the mixture boils. Add the ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, lemon juice, wine, and rhubarb. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, until the rhubarb begins to soften and lose its shape. Remove the vanilla pods. You can serve it hot. Or, like we did, serve chilled as a great summer soup.

  7. I did that one time … served stir-fry to an Asian restaurant owner. I don't think mine was such a hit. With that said, what a great sounding Summer soup. In my humble opinion, all soup should contain wine.

  16. I've only really seen rhubarb used in pies so it's interesting to see it in a different kind of dish. Speaking of dishes, I LOVE that adorable little chalkboard-vessel you served this in!

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. Whisk to dissolve sugar, then lower heat an

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!
