This is a raw salsa. Yes a raw Purple salsa. Mexico meets Japan in this recipe. Shiso (also known as perilla), is a member of the mint family with broad jagged edged leaves. A touch of red wine can be used if you can't get the red shisho which adds a cool color to the salsa.
This smooth and chunky tomato condiment is sweet and spicy. Can be use on burgers, hot dogs, egg sandwiches, Top a meat loaf with it. I leave the skins on for its health benefits and ease. Do use organic tomatoes.
I came up with this after going to make Recipe #397116 realizing I didn't have any cranberries I went for the frozen cherries added a cinnamon stick. And voila this creation. Top Christmas toast or a croissant with this jam or serve along side a roast pork or turkey. Do use firm figs if to ripe the jam won't set up.
A lsweet Latin dish. No noodles here. Plantains are used in it's place. The plantains should be ripe with black spots. Cut the ends off then slice down the side to peel the skin off.
Dawn a coworker gave me this recipe which I tweaked. A traditional Dominican/ Puerto Rican meal that's sweet, savory, spicy, cheesy, and tangy. You can add corn kernel, peas, cut string beans. This is very versatile let your imagination take over. We like heat so I added some chipotles in adobo sauce. Chorizo would be interesting in this as well.

Lemon Balm or lemon grass can be used in place of the lemon Verbena
A pH of 4.6 or lower is required for safe canning without the use of pressure processing. So don't skip the lime juice and vinegar.
You can also check amount of salsa after blending. Mine came to 10 cups pureed so I had 10 jars and lids ready.
Quick, healthy, easy, no cook Bush meal for a hot Aussie summer day with a boozer! Pepperberries a mild, fruity pepper flavour will bleed a soft pink colour into marinades or pickle solutions, pale sauces and yoghurt.
A rambling mint bush is found across south eastern Australia in moist forests and around waterways. This subtle Australian native herb with the taste and aroma of spearmint. So yes you can use mint from your backyard. I added chia seeds to mine for healthy having lots of fiber, Manganese, Phosphorus and omega-3 fatty acids.
Rice flour gives this a nice crunch. Backhousia citriodora (common names lemon myrtle, lemon scented myrtle, lemon scented ironwood) is a flowering plant in the family Myrtaceae. From subtropical rainforests of central and south-eastern Queensland, Australia, with a natural distribution from Mackay to Brisbane. Other common names are sweet verbena tree, sweet verbena myrtle, lemon scented verbena, and lemon scented backhousia.
Is your garden being generous with green beans? Make these to enjoy the summer during the winter months, I used the tricolor bush beans as you see in the photo the purple ones turn green after cooking.
The ultimate French comfort food!
I adore this dish. Full of flavor.
Cassoulet is usually served with confit of duck, bone in (I use roasted duck removing the meat and break into bite size pieces and use the bones for stock) and many type of meats can be used. I did this version for a large party with other foods being served. In this recipe the pieces of meat is easier to serve and everyone get a bit of both. No handling of bones so no messy hands while eating.:)
Butter can be used in place of the rendered duck fat.
Can be frozen for up to 3 months. Just freeze before place crumbs on. Defrost and heat. Top with crumbs and continue as directed below.
Canned beans (about 6-8 cans) can be used for less cook time or they will mush out so watch carefully. I like the dry beans and the longer cooking time for a more richer cassoulet.
Preserve summer fresh picked beans, scented with citrus flavored herbs, yes you can sub organic lemon zest for herbs or use both as I did.
This recipe is "raw packed" because we don't cook the beans before packing them into the jars. Fresh lemongrass would be a great addition to these. Just slice a piece to fit into each jar. Just give it a whack to release it's oils.
The Bright Calendula (Calendula officinalis) is also know as the pot marigold. (Not to be confused with regular mariglods). This flower is versatile and potent in its' medicinal qualities. Having antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties. It can be used to soothe and calm sore, cracked skin, cuts, bites, sunburns and generally sensitive skin. Used for massages. Or to make lip balms or body creams.
An abundance of Lavender in full bloom and beets bursting from the earth! Why not combine to two to make pickled beets, preserving them for enjoyment throughout the year. Do use pesticide free/organic grown lavender, thyme and beets.
