Adapted from a Meal Master recipe, this will make a great gift in a basket with the spices, a nice salad bowl, salad tongs, maybe a pretty small pitcher for pouring the dressing or a nice dip bowl. Have fun!
This was adapted from Aliza Green from Field Guide to Herbs & Spices. A little different from the recipes already here. Traditionally, this seasoning is used for steamed crabs, but is now used for fish, potato salad, potatoes, and other vegetables. This would also make a great gift, along with some recipes! Enjoy!
Here in North Carolina, wild violets grow everywhere in the spring. Here is a way I found on Chef2Chef to preserve them. I haven't tried this yet, but will in the spring. This recipe originally comes from England.
Ramps are a type of onion, similar to scallions or leeks and appear during April and May. Ramps are picked wild in the eastern United States, from southern Canada to the southern Appalachia mountains. If you're lucky you might find ramps at your local farmer's market. Serve these with grilled chicken or on French bread with some good cheeses. Adapted from Martha Stewart Living magazine.
I recently bought some Mezzetta Zesty Bell Pepper Relish and was pleasantly surprised how good it was. In my attempt to find a recipe so I could make my own, I stumbled across this tasty one. Not the same, but still so very good with a hint of heat. This won a secret food bloggers secret ingredient contest for a recipe using red bell peppers. I hope you enjoy! Adapted from a food blog, savory and sweet. Thank you Alice!
This is a recipe that comes from the Yukon Territory, but rosehips grow anywhere roses grow. You will lose a lot of the beneficial vitmin C when you boil this, but you still get the wonderful taste of the rosehips! Adapted from FoodService Recipes. What a great gift this would make!
