Pumpkin-Poblano Salsa

This is a simple, seasonal condiment that's smoky, spicy, and savory. I love putting apples and pumpkins together. Those just say 'Autumn' to me!

Ingredients

  • 2 organic poblano peppers, sliced (approximately 1 C)
  • 1 mini sugar pumpkin or 2 super minis, peeled and cubed (approximately 4 C)
  • 2 apples, cored, peeled, and diced (approximately 1 to 2 C)
  • 3 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • olive oil
  • 1 C water + more as needed
  • 1/2 C vinegar (I used an apple cider vinegar)
  • 2 T yuzu juice or freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 t smoked paprika
  • freshly ground salt
  • freshly ground pepper


Procedure
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Roll the cubed pumpkin and diced apples in a splash of olive oil. Roast until pumpkin is caramelized, approximately 40 to 50 minutes.

In a large flat-bottom pan, brown shallots and peppers in a splash of olive oil. Add the apples and pumpkin, 1 C water, 1/2 C vinegar and bring to a simmer. Pour in 2 T yuzu juice and more water if needed. Continue cooking until the pumpkin begins to lose its shape. Then stir in 2 t smoked paprika and season with freshly ground salt and pepper o taste. Spoon into sterilized jars and process in a water bath.

  2. I can never wait to see which recipes you've come up with and chosen to share - this looks out of my spice comfort level, but love the combination of flavors and ingredients!

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!
