Gingered Apple Trifles

This recipe, and variations of it, have long been a family favorite. Years ago I adapted from a traditional Norwegian recipe for an apple triffle, Tilslørte BondepikerFor this post, I am featuring some of the sponsor products and ingredients from Nairn's, Rodelle Vanilla, and Swiss Diamond.* While I did use a mandolin slicer for the apples, I peeled them with my new Swiss Diamond paring knife...and it quickly replaced my previous paring knife in my knife block. Love it!

Ingredients

  • 6 organic apples, peeled, cored, and thinly sliced
  • 2 to 3 T granulated sugar
  • 3/4 C water
  • ½ t vanilla extract (prefer Rodelle Vanilla)
  • ½ t ground ginger
  • ½ t ground cardamom
  • 1 t ground cinnamon
  • 8 cookies (I used gluten-free oat graham from Nairn's with candied ginger)
  • ½ C heavy whipping cream

Procedure

In medium skillet, combine sliced apples, sugar, water, vanilla extract, ground ginger, ground cardamom, and ground cinnamon. Cover and cook till the apples are very soft.

Crumble 4 of the cookies into coarse crumbs. And whip the cream until soft peaks form.

To assemble: Place 1 to 2 T apple compote in the bottom of an individual serving dish or glass. Add 1 to 2 T whipped cream. Add 1 t cookie crumbles. Repeat layers until the dish is full. Garnish with a whole oat graham. Serve immediately.

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.

Aloo Tiki {Pakistan}

To start off our Pakistani culinary adventure, I started us off with aloo tiki - potato cutlets. I'm always game for tasty street food. I found a couple of different recipes and incorporated those together for this version. Ingredients 6-8 small red potatoes, scrubbed 1 T cumin seeds 1 T fresh chopped parsley 1/2 t ground coriander 1 t minced garlic Procedure Boil the potatoes until they are tender. Drain and let cool. Mash the potatoes. Traditionally they are mashed without their skins. I left the skins on. In a small pan, toast the cumin seeds on high heat until the begin to give off an aroma and begin to darken. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate to keep them from cooking any more. Blend all of the spices into the mashed potatoes, then shape into small patties. If you wet your hands, the potato mixture won't stick to them. Heat a splash of oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Dip each patty into beaten egg and carefully place in the oil. P
