    Grilled Nectarines with Coconut Cream and Cookie Crumble

    Grilled Nectarines with Coconut Cream and Cookie Crumble! yum so tasty! I love grilled fruit and its such an easy, quick way for a dessert.

    Nectaries are native to China, They were cultivated in the Middle East and Europe and brought to the United States from Spain. Today 95% of Nectarines that are produced for the United States are grown in California. However each state has there own prime season for Nectarines and in the Pacific Northwest that is late summer to early fall. Yum!

    The New Caprese Salad

    The New Caprese Salad. Same amazing great salad! A heritage tomato or heirloom I’m sure you have  seen them at farmers markets and grocery stores, on restaurant menus and at that dinner party or in my case we make them at lots of our weddings and events, we put them on sticks, in cute little martini glasses, we serve them plated or on a bufett and sometimes in a salad bowl. 

    Caprese
    This is a great option if you need to feed a crowd Caprese!

     

    Authentic heirloom tomatoes are actually passed down from generation to generation, season to season and are open pollinated. Not to be confused with Cartoon tomatoes, Is that a thing? Yes I guess it is that is what there called when they are mass produced by genetically modified seeds eek scary!

    They are very seasonal! If there authentic. And do come in many shapes, sizes and colors, Yellow heirlooms tend to be milder than the tart, sharp reds and the greens have a light, zesty bite. The darker varieties are more savory than that of the sweet. They are more expensive than regular red ones. And the shells life is shorted than regular tomatoes as well.

     

     

     

     

    Heirloom Caprese
    Heirloom Caprese

    The selection of heirloom seeds available to the public is constantly expanding.  Each wave of new immigrants to the U.S. brings their favorite seeds adding to the collection of traditional varieties grown by Native Americans, Mennonites, and Amish.  Recently, there have been imports of heirlooms from Russia, Germany, Italy, France, and Czechoslovakia.  There are new ethnic ones each year.

    • Category: Salad
    • Method: Quick
    • Cuisine: American

    Ingredients

    3 heirloom tomatoes

    2 logs of fresh mozzarella

    fresh cracked pepper

    1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil

    1/2 cup balsamic glaze

    1 tablespoon sea salt

    1 cup fresh basil leaves

    Instructions

    Slice heirloom, and mozzarella to the same thickness about 1/4 inch thick depending on the size of the heirlooms. A great way to keep the basil from turning black is to tear it instead of cut it or you can leave the leaves whole. You will want to stack them on a platter as you go. When your done drizzle the entire thing with the oil and balsamic glaze, finish with salt and fresh ground pepper. So amazing!

    If you would like to make the Balsamic Glaze here is that!

    Balsamic Glaze (for drizziling you can buy balsamic syrup at most grocery stores)

    if you want to make it only takes 15 minutes and is much healthier than buying it from the store

    1 cup balsamic vinegar

    1 tablespoon honey

    Balsamic glaze

    Add the balsamic vinegar and honey to a small pot. Bring it to a boil, then reduce the heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until the sauce coats the back of a spoon.

    Cedar Salmon with Lemon Smoked Salt Butter

     

    Cedar Salmon with Lemon Smoked Salt Butter
    Cedar Salmon with Lemon Smoked Salt Butter

     

     

    Cedar Salmon with Lemon Smoked Salt Butter! Here in the Northwest I do a lot of Cedar Salmon at weddings. We grill the salmon on site and it is really amazing. We use fresh Salmon and Cedar. Ideally Sockeye or King salmon is best when available but you can use any kind we generally use. Sockeye salmon, also called red salmon, kokanee salmon, or blueback salmon, is an anadromous species of salmon found in the Northern Pacific Ocean and rivers discharging into it. Alaska Salmon is also quite amazing.

    Here are some questions people ask me. Do we soak the Cedar ? Actually no we do not, does that cause the cedar to cetch in fire, yes sometimes they do you just move them out of the flames, This is ok because its so much more flavor. I’m sure its a personal preference but really it is much better if you don’t soak them in this application. Like I said we do this at weddings all the time and people are amazed by the flavor and the secret is its simple, leave it alone. Let the Fish be a Fish!

    I’m going to share with you our very simple recipe here. We use salmon skin on and we cut in in portions before putting it on the Cedar. The skin will stick to the cedar when you take it off and that is ok.

    Purple Potatoes

    Purple potatoes! this is an amazing side dish, easy and so good, as well as healthy! The purple potato is in the nightshade family the same as peppers and eggplant and tomatoes. The first of the purple potatoes originated from Peru and Bolivia. You might be asking well where can I get purple potatoes? Some regular grocery stores carry them, farmers markets and sometimes they come in a bag with multi colored potatoes usually small and round. They are available year round and are in peak season in the fall. They first became popular in the US in the 1980’s but were in South America and Europe in the 16th Century.

    The ones we are making today are roasted but you can also mash them. Please note they do have a unique flavor but are not sweet like a sweet potato.

    Strawberry Rhubarb Daiquiri & Ice Pops

    Strawberry Rhubarb Daiquiri & Ice Pops. I know you love strawberry rhubarb pie one of my favorites, I know I do! yum! This is such a such a unique way to celebrate both fruits. Rhubarb grows like crazy this time of year if you have never had it its like celery stalks you will defiantly need to strain it its very stringy.  Strawberries are the first fruit after rhubarb to ripen in spring and early summer. Strawberries are the most picked fruit in the United States and, there are 600 varieties that grow here in the United States alone.

    During the time of the Spanish-American War, in 1898, an American mining engineer by the name of Jennings Cox created the drink to protect his workers from yellow fever. According to Bacardi archivist Juan Bergaz Pessino, both the lime and alcohol were thought to protect against the deadly disease.

    The cocktail was further made famous at Hotel Venus in Santiago de Cuba, where it was christened in 1932, and Feliza Bar in Havana.The Daiquiri was introduced to the United States in 1908, when a U.S. Navy medical officer brought the recipe from Cuba back to the Army & Navy Club in Washington, D.C. It experienced a rash of popularity from the 1940s through 1960s.

    Now you can bring a lit of the Tropics home to you wherever that might be. I hope you have fun making this!

    • Category: Cocktail

    Ingredients

    2 cups fresh frozen strawberries

    1/4 cup lime juice

    6 oz white rum

    2 oz strawberry liquor

    1 cup sugar

    1 cup water

    2 cups chopped rhubarb

    2 Rhubarb stalks garnish (optional)

    Instructions

    The first thing you should do is cut your rhubarb stalks and put them in ice water, then set them in fridge for use later. Next place sugar, rhubarb and water in a sauce pan cook until rhubarb is very soft. Cool, blend in blender and strain. With your blender add remaining ingredients! You can add them to your ice pops and pour yourself a glass or skip the ice pops and share with your friends! The garnishes take 2-4 hours to curl. I also used line and fresh strawberry for garnish.

    Notes

    if you do not use fresh frozen strawberries you will need to use 2 cups of ice. I always find using frozen fruit instead is a good idea. We freeze our fruit from fresh.

    Cup pineapple I leave the skin on for presentation purposes but you don’t have to. Cut the peppers and red onion is squares set aside.  You will need 2 bowls  non-reactive because you marinade the shrimp and the other half will be for brushing once on the grill. Next you will peel and deviate the shrimp and make the marinade and divide it in half. Whisk together the 1 cup oil, 1 jalapeño, 1 tablespoon salt ,1/2 cup honey, 1 tablespoon lime zest, 1 lime juiced ,1/2 cup cilantro. You will only want to marinade the shrimp for about an hour you don’t want the lime juice to cook the shrimp. Next you will make the skewers I did two kinds shrimp and pineapple only and some with veggies. Make sure that your grill is really hot they take about 10 minutes to cook.
