Warmed Brie with Pickled Blueberries

While I called this 'warmed brie with pickled blueberries', the latter is really the only recipe part. For the warmed brie, simply place your round on a baking sheet and heat in a 200 degree F oven until it's softened. Serve with baguette slices.


I have been pickling blueberries for years. I love that it's unexpected and a delightful mix of sweet and sour! So, for an upcoming blogging event, I decided to do a quick pickle to use on warmed brie. Oh, my stars...this was heavenly!


Ingredients
  • 1/2 organic red onion, peeled and thinly sliced (I used a mandolin slicer)
  • 1 C apple cider vinegar
  • 2 T organic granulated sugar
  • 1 t sea salt
  • 1 t yellow mustard seeds
  • 1 t dill seeds
  • 1 pint organic blueberries
  • also needed: mason jar with lid
Procedure

Place blueberries and sliced red onions in a medium mixing bowl. In a medium saucepan place the vinegar, sugar, and salt. Bring the mixture to a boil and swirl until the sugar and salt have dissolved completely.

Place mustard seeds and dill seeds in the bottom of your mason jar. Scoop the blueberries and onions into the jar and gently press down to compress.  Pour the hot brine over the blueberries until they are completely submerged and cover with lid. 


Invert the jar a few times to move the spiced around. Refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight before using.


Serve with warmed brie on a slice of baguette for a delicious sweet and savory treat.

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!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
