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.

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
