We’ve been cooking all summer and forgot to take a breath and write about our fun. Confitures have been the main events, such as, Pineapple Jam, Balsamic Figs, Plum Orange Conserve, Key Lime Marmalade, Cantaloupe Peach Conserve just to name a few. But, we’re not only about “All That Jam. We’ve stuffed trout, braised Pork, smoked Brisket, grilled Kasbah Wings…….. we made Salmon Confit, African Spiced Pork Kebobs, Sausage and Lentil Soup, Orange Nut Miffins w/ Smoked Turkey…….and all the side dishes to accompany the above. It’s been great fun learning about African Spices and marmalade making. Oh yes…. and we cooked our first ever Vietnamese meal…..Pork with Noodle Salad and Coconut Ice Cream w/ nut brittle for dessert. Our new Vietnamese Friend, Soon, said it was perfect! It’s been a great Summer, so far. Looking forward to trying a new Stollen recipe this Fall.
Photos of almost everything are attached. Make it a great one!
