Cotswold-Chive Popovers

I can't remember where I was reading about popovers. But I've been dreaming about them. I finally got around to christening my popover pan this weekend. I read a bunch of recipes and created these. They were an instant hit and were received with oooooos and ahhhhhhhs.


Ingredients makes 6 popovers
  • 1-1/2 C organic whole milk
  • 1-1/2 C flour
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 C shredded Cotswold cheese
  • 2 T fresh chives, chopped
  • 1 T fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1 T butter, cut into 6 cubes
  • 2 T shredded parmesan

Procedure
Preheat oven to 400ºF. In a medium saucepan, heat the milk until bubbles form around the edge of the pan.

In a large mixing bowl, whisk the eggs. Temper the eggs so they don't scramble or curdle. Whisk constantly until the eggs and milk are completely combined. Fold in the flour and salt until just combined. Then stir in the Cotswold, chives and parsley.

Place the popover pan in the oven for 3 minutes to preheat. At the end of 3 minutes, remove the pan from the oven, and add a pat of butter to each cup.


Once the butter has melted, pour the batter into the cups, filling each about three-quarters of the way. Top with the shredded parmesan.


Bake the popovers for 20 minutes at 400ºF. Reduce the temperature to 300ºF and continue baking for an additional 10 minutes. Remove the popovers from the oven and serve immediately. As they cool, they will deflate.




*If you can’t find a popover pan locally, you can order from Amazon. I've included an affiliate link above. If you are uncomfortable using the link, feel free to go to amazon and search "pop over pan" on your own! This is the exact pan I bought.

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.

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
