Finger Salad. What a great idea for a tastings event! this is a recipe from Chef John Ponticelli (JP) who is the Garde Manger Chef de Cuisine at Tulalip Resort Casino. Take the idea and run with it!!!!
I used to consider this something I would eat out as I could not make it at home. No more. I tested a couple recipe variations and it really is easier than you might think. Part of what is so nice is you can freeze part of the loaf and quarter or half pound pieces and pull it out any time. All you have to do is slice and broil for a few minutes.
This is from a cookbook called "Food of Jamaica." This cookbook is sold in Jamaica to Jamaicans. It is different from the other sweet potato pone recipes I found here and I like this profile. It's intro - Jamaicans never tire of anything made with sweet potato. This particuar pone, similar to those found in the American South, was inspired by the rich culinary heritage of Africa.
This is from a garden forum about the Chicasquil (Cnidoscolus acontifolius) which is a form of tree spinach. It is an evergreen vegetable that grows like a bush. I learned of this plant recently from Guachipelin, Chef #2245414. I went to one of my favorite nurseries for something else and while the fellow was driving me around, he pointed this out as Tree Spinach. It wasn't until I got home that I realized it was on my want list for the yard. I am very lucky as this one does NOT have the stinging hairs that some have.
You can either bag the mix for future use or go ahead and make the brownies. You can also use a high quality cocoa to improve the flavor. Customize it with chips, nuts or whatever you like. I found this on a blog for saving money. Making it yourself should save you about 80- 85%
Barbara and Kevin brought this for dinner to Family Promise with black beans, rice and plantains (baked) YUM!!! I had to have the recipe. It come from Three Guys From Miami, who have published cookbooks and are well known. There were other roast pork recipes here, but NOT this one. It is SOOOOOO good. You can cook this in the oven, on the grill, on the stove or in the crockpot.
