Mini Peach Galettes #FarmersMarketWeek


Here we are on Day Four - I skipped yesterday because my pickled eggs just weren't done in time! - of the 2018 #FarmersMarketWeek. This online Farmers' Market Week event is co-hosted by Ellen of Family Around the Table with help from Christie at A Kitchen Hoor's Adventures. I love those gals! They are so organized...which means the rest of us can just cook, post, and reap the benefits of this blogging community. Thank you, ladies.

Thursday #FarmersMarketWeek Recipes
   
Ingredients makes four small galettes
Crust 
  • 1-1/4 C flour
  • 1/4 C ground almonds
  • 2 T organic powdered sugar
  • 1/2 t vanilla salt
  • 1/2 C butter (1 stick), cubed
  • 1 t grappa or extract of your choice (I would use lemon extract)
  • cold water, as needed

Frangipane
  • 1/2 to 3/4 C ground almonds, as needed
  • 1/4 C organic granulated sugar
  • 1/4 C powdered sugar
  • 1/3 to 2/3 C melted butter, as needed
  • 1/4 t pure almond extract

To Finish
  • 2 organic, ripe peaches + more for garnish
  • organic granulated sugar
  • organic heavy whipping cream

Procedure
Crust
In a food processor, pulse the flour with the sugar and salt. Add the butter cubes and pulse until chunks the size of small peas form. Pour in grappa and 1/4 cup of cold water and pulse, again, till the dough comes together in a ball. Turn out the dough onto a piece of parchment paper and knead 2 to 3 times. Form into four balls, wrapping them in plastic and refrigerate until firm, approximately 1 hour.

Once they are chilled, press each ball out into a flat disk and place on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F.

Frangipane
Mix everything together to form a thick paste. Form a disk slightly smaller in diameter than the crust and place the frangipane in the center of the crust.

To Finish
Place thin slices of peach on top of the frangipane and bring the crust up around the peach slices. Press gently to fold the crust onto the peaches. Sprinkle with sugar and bake for 45 to 50 minutes, until the peaches have softened and the crust has browned.



To Serve
Let cool slightly, then place the galettes on individual serving plates. Top with whipped cream and a peach slice as garnish.

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
