Baby's Berry-Citrus Compote with Champagne Vinaigrette *NON-ALCOHOLIC!!!*

This is something I tossed together one morning whilst grazing through my fridge in search of … whatever, LOL!

Proper food precautions with honey and all that, don’t let your tiny toddlers steal this, just in case, or leave the honey out, and wash all fruits well, no matter the origin. Safety first!

Feel free to substitute seasonal berries! ;oD

Broiled Halibut with Miso Glaze

This is a classic Japanese take on fish. Doug’s Halibut was the perfect cut for this. I served one steak with some spinach and shitake dumplings and Hon Tsuyu soup base (Fooks) with rice noodles and it served three generously.

Crème Fraîche Roasted Salmon

You’d think this recipe is too simple to be any good, and it’s so simple it barely qualifies as a recipe, but I tried it on a whim and you know what? It’s really, really good.

Crushed Heirloom Potatoes

As with tomatoes, the profusion of heirloom varieties of potatoes at farmers’ markets has helped us rediscover them as a seasonal ingredient in a rainbow of flavors, colors, and textures. This recipe is the perfect vehicle for trying any number of them. Nutty, creamy La Ratte fingerlings are a favorite of French chefs. German Butterballs, as their name suggests, are soft and buttery. For even cooking, choose potatoes that are about the same size.

Farmer’s Cabbage and Mushroom Pie

This is a farmer’s pie: rustic, a little rude, and down-right delicious. Traditionally, the pie was set in the middle of the table and everyone, fork in hand, had at it. But you can serve it in slices to avoid fights over the last bits. Try crumbling a few slices of crispy bacon into the pie for even more flavor.

Okra with Tomatoes (Mayai Wara Bhinda)

At least one okra hater testifies that this is an eatable okra dish. As an okraphile, I can’t stop eating it. Browning the okra is magical — if you don’t feel like turning the oven on to roast it, this way of cooking it is a good alternative.

Pan-Broiled Salmon (Sake Nanban-yaki)

From Shizuo Tsuji, Japanese Cooking: A Simple Feast, which came out in the early eighties with an introduction by M.F.K. Fisher and color illustrations apparently subsidized by Suntory whisky, which (it’s noted) pairs well with many Japanese dishes. My friend Annie lent me this cookbook as an artifact, and because of my M.F.K. Fisher addiction. Mostly the recipes were too rigorous to make it in to my regular routine, but this salmon dish is simple and amazing.

Savory Fig Tart with Rosemary and Stilton

Apart from the crust, every ingredient for this surprising tart can be purchased through Athens Locally Grown, including the blue cheese. Figs are often made into something sticky sweet, but they are wonderful going down the savory road too.

Spiced Watermelon Rind Pickles

When you’re enjoying those wonderful summer watermelons, save the rinds. They make a delicious sweet pickle! Scrape out all pink and soft flesh from the rind. Then peel off the outer green skin. Cut the remaining white flesh into 1-inch squares or diamonds. Then measure how much you have. The recipe here makes about 7-8 pint jars full (one water-bath canner load). If you have more or less than 1 gallon of prepared rinds, adjust the other ingredients accordingly.

Tacos de Quelites — Tacos of Garlicky Greens

There are lots of recipes out there for “authentic” Mexican spinach quesadillas and similar dishes out there. Few of them will tell you, however, that none of those dishes were traditionally made with spinach. It’s a cool weather crop that has trouble growing here in Georgia, much less in the more arid and hot climates further south. What does grow well, both here and there, is the even more nutritious Lamb’s Quarter, and this is what modern recipes replace with spinach.

Water Buffalo Sausage Polenta Casserole

My stepson and I tried this recipe as a new way to enjoy our Zesty Italian Sausages. It was tasty! I would love to have a local source for buffalo mozarella as the true source of mozarella is water buffalo (we don’t milk ours). In America it’s made with cow’s milk. We sell some of our heifers to new dairies in the southeast, so I hope to refer them in the future.

Yemenite Chili Paste (Z’chug)

A spicy chile sauce made with green chiles — almost like a chutney — and an ingredient in Yemenite Eggplant Spread. Add chopped tomatoes or tahini to reduce heat. Serve with felafel or bread, or add to stews, soups or salads. Keeps covered in fridge for up to 2 months. From Gil Marks’s really excellent cookbook of Jewish vegetarian cooking from Africa to the Middle East to eastern and western Europe.
