Is it a Flafoutis or a Claugnarde?


We discussed and debated this morning and just couldn't agree. You can call it a clafoutis if it's made with cherries; if it's made with any other type of fruit, it's a flaugnarde. This was made with a mixture of cherries and wild blueberries. So...what do you think it should be called? Is this a Flafoutis or a Claugnarde?

Whatever you call it, it's dairy-free, gluten-free, and all kinds of delicious.

Ingredients
  • non-dairy butter for greasing the pan
  • 3 C fruits (I used 2 C cherries and 1 C wild blueberries)
  • 4 eggs
  • 3/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C sweet white rice flour
  • 1-1/2 C almond milk
  • 2 T vanilla paste
  • 1 T cherry liqueur
  • powdered sugar for dusting

Procedure
Preheat the oven to 350F. Butter your baking dish(es). Spoon the fruit into the bottom of the dish(es). Whisk the eggs, sugar, and flour together until smooth. Add the milk. vanilla paste, and liqueur. Whisk until smooth. Pour over the fruit.

Bake for 45-50 minutes or until lightly browned and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. When you pull it put of the oven it will jiggle a bit. That's fine. Place the dish on a wire rack to cool. The Flafoutis/Claugnarde will have puffed up quite a bit during baking and will deflate while cooling. When cooled, dust the Flafoutis/Claugnarde with powdered sugar. Serve at room temperature.

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!

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

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
