Here are the #BBQWeek Day Two Dishes...

Not Ketchup & Michigan Asparagus

In yesterday's recipe - Double Blueberry Bison Burgers - I already told you how much I enjoy Not Ketchup's products. Today I'm using another one of her no added sugar sauces - Tangerine Hatch Chile.

When I received a cooler full of fresh asparagus from Michigan Asparagus, I immediately pickled half of them. That recipe is coming soon. But I knew that I wanted to include some grilled asparagus in a salad offering this week.


Fresh asparagus is definitely a harbinger of Spring and Michigan is one of the largest domestic asparagus growers in the United States. Michigan Asparagus is available mid-May through June and is the only hand-snapped harvested asparagus which means more usable asparagus and less waste.

Tangerine Hatch Chile 
Grilled Corn and Asparagus Salad

Ingredients serves 4
  • 4 ears of corn
  • 1 pound asparagus
  • 3 T ketchup (I used Not Ketchup's No Sugar Added Tangerine Hatch Chile Sauce*)
  • 1/4 C mayonnaise (my homemade recipe)
  • 1 C grated cheese (I used a combination of Monterey jack, asiago, parmesan, and provolone)
  • freshly ground salt, as needed
  • freshly ground pepper, as needed
  • Also needed: grill or grill pan


Procedure 
Preheat oven to 350°F. Rinse ears and place corn cobs, still in their husks, on a baking sheet. Roast for 30 minutes.


When they are cool enough to handle, peel back the husks and remove the silk.


Wrap the husks near the base of the cob and tie in a knot. I use them as a handy way to grip the corn ears. Grill quickly to get nice char lines on the corn.


Grill the asparagus until they get char marks, too. We prefer ours still firm. But cook to your preferred doneness.


Cut the kernels from the cob and place them in a large mixing bowl. Slice the grilled asparagus into 1-1/2" lengths and place those in the same bowl. Mix in the remaining ingredients and toss until well-combined. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Serve immediately. If not serving immediately, refrigerate until ready to serve.

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
