I'm splitting my cooking content over to this account so I don't need to CW all my food posts :)
I like to bake bread, cook big batches of things that I can freeze leftovers of, and eat all sorts of delicious things 😁 I am known for my frequent avotoast posts.
Here's a sample of some things I've cooked up lately!
👀🍖 no soggy bottoms!!!
Cooking with another can of pinto beans that I #canned myself at home instead of popping open a metal can from the pantry and it's hard to describe my emotion. Awed? Like. I *did* that
The most bizarre part of tonight's cooking was that the bag of yellow onions I bought last week were basically all rotten. I've never gotten such a bad bag before! My groceries were delivered so I didn't pick them, and they were out of stock of the loose yellow onions so maybe that's why...
More "healthy" food from the meal service: kale salad with chickpea, cranberry, roasted carrot, and a chicken stew
it looks like tomatoes with basil leaves, but it's really... pitango (surinam cherry, aka eugenia uniflora) with nana (probably mentha longifolia)! God willing, in a few weeks time it's going to be a wild kind of #vinegar.
the other jar's the weekly #PickledGarden, this time with both garlic and dill #flowers 💐 yesterday we ate last week's gardens and it was perfect.
p.s. almost everything from the #CommunityGardens 🌇🌄🌳
Finally got around to making the chili tonight before everything in the fridge started going bad...
I forgot about the frequently asked questions section on my recipe post 🤣
I picked the loaf of bread avatar because I figure profile pics show up without a CW so for folks who don't wanna see food, I wanted to pick something that wasn't obviously food. But I think I'll definitely update the banner...
Any suggestions or requests? 🤔
Popped open some canned #beans, and making more to can! I can't believe how firmly attached this lid was on my pinto beans, it took quite the effort to open.
For dinner, ayocote amarillo with a fried flour tortilla. I'm canning just two pints---the beauty of pressure canning in the instant pot max! The rest will go into chili ala https://hashman.ca/chili #canning #recipe
Last night's dinner, slightly simplified Char Siu pork on a baguette with mayonnaise, Swedish style pickled cucumber, and coriander.
Had some ground elk meat so I made some patties and a pan sauce with cream. Served it with mashed potatoes, macerated lingon berries, and Swedish style pickled cucumbers.
It's spring in the Northern Hemisphere, so time for an annual PSA. This is an article by Harold McGee, seminal food scientist, on a simple way of extending how long fresh berries, grapes, and stone fruit will keep.
I've used this method every year since first reading it. It works great.
