One of our sponsors shipped us a box of voluptuous, organic Honeycrisp apples. Thanks, Rainier Fruit Company.


And while I did use some of apples themselves, I wanted to try my hand at fresh-pressed apple juice. I don't have a fancy juicer, but I have a blender and a food processor. Turns out that that's all I needed. You'll see this fresh-pressed juice in several of my #AppleWeek creations.

Fresh-Pressed Apple Juice 

Ingredients
  • apples (I used organic Rainier Honeycrisps)
  • Also needed: a food processor, cheesecloth, colander, mesh strainer


Procedure
Quarter the apples and place them in the bowl of the food processor. I put them in there peel, seeds, and all.

Process until you have a puree. Line your colander with cheesecloth and place the entire thing over a large bowl to catch the juice. You can do this in batches to make it easier to press. Bring the edges of the cheesecloth together so you have all the edges in your hand. 


Begin to turn the cloth, forming a ball. As you tighten the ball, the juice will being to extract from the pulp. Keep going until you have gotten as much of the juice from the pulp as you can.


Strain the juice through the mesh strainer into a lidded glass jar. Refrigerate until ready to use. Compost the pulp.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
