TIPS: Most fresh fruits salads can benefit from a bit of lime and/or lemon juice. The added acidity brings our the natural flavor of the fruit and also helps to preserve the fruit salad. If you choose, you may also wish to serve the fruit with an accompanying piece of lime, which you guest may squeeze on the salad just before eating. Cardamom is an ancient spice which is native to India and found in three varieties green, black and white. We believe that it is under used and appreciated in this country. We use only the green variety which consists of a pod with an outer shell (not very flavorful) and a small black inner seed (very flavorful). Whenever we prepare fresh fruit for our guest (for example in our blueberry pancakes), we always add a touch of ground cardamom. Pastry chefs also have found a pinch or two of cardamom in their creations adds an additional subtle and pleasant touch. If you do find the pods, they should appear light green in color. Gentle break open the seamless the pod and you will find the small black seed, which then can be ground in a spice mill. We have been told by a friend of ours from Jordan that in his country it is customary to grind up the entire pod. Cardamom will remain fresh for a very long time, provided you store it in an air tight glass jar. Other additions to fresh fruit include: dark rum, Cointreau and fresh finely ground black pepper which goes very well with fresh strawberries. However you choose to enjoy Cardamom or any of additives to your fruit salad we hope that they will be a welcome addition to your recipes.

Ginger Crunch Categories: Slices Serves: 0 s Ingredients: 125 g butter, softened 125 g caster sugar 220 g plain flour 1 tsp baking powder 1 tsp ground ginger - Icing (Frosting) 60 g butter, chopped 125 g icing sugar 1 tbsp golden syrup 2 tsp ground ginger 10 pieces crystallized ginger Instructions: 35 minutes 10 mins prep. Preheat oven to 180C (350F). Using a mixer or a food processor, cream the butter and sugar. Add sifted flour, ground ginger and baking powder and mix well until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs- you can do this with your fingers if you like, but I do it in the food processor. If using a food processor, scrape down sides once or twice to ensure all butter is mixed in with the flour. Tip mixture into a well-greased shallow sided baking tin measuring approximately 27cm x 17cm (10 1/2" x 6 1/2") or a 20cm (8") square. Using your fingers or the back of a fork, spread mixture evenly then press down lightly until just firm. Don't press too hard or the mixture will set like concrete. Bake on the centre shelf of the oven for 20-25 minutes or until lightly browned. During the last few minutes of baking, combine all the icing (frosting) ingredients in a small saucepan and melt over a low-medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove the biscuit base from the oven and immediately pour hot icing mixture as evenly as possible over the base. Use a bread knife to spread the icing evenly over the base. Now, cut the pieces of crystallised ginger in half and space them out evenly on top. Slice into approximately 20 squares while still warm. Remove baking tin when cool and store in an airtight tin.

Mixed Grain Mushroom Casserole Categories: Side dish, Main dish, Casseroles, Vegan, Lacto Serves: 1 Ingredients: 1 c Wild rice 1 c Pearl barley 1 c Brown rice 1/2 c Oil 2 lg Onion; thinly sliced 8 Garlic cloves; chopped 8 tb Unsalted butter or margarine OR- Oil 1 lb Mushrooms; thickly sliced 7 c Broth 2 ts Crushed dried thyme 1 ts Crushed dried oregano Salt & pepper; to taste Instructions: Combine grains in a mixing bowl and set aside. Pour the oil into a 2-3 qt. casserole which is safe for both stovetop and oven cooking, and place on med. heat. When hot , saute onion and garlic until tender and translucent, about 5-6 mins. Add the mixed grains and saute for 1 min., stirring constantly. Meanwhile melt butter or margarine (if using) in a separate pan on med. high heat. When hot , add mushrooms and saute quickly, stirring frequently, until the shrooms are hot and have just absorbed the "butter" (about 1 min.). Immediately remove from heat. Add the broth, herbs, and mushrooms to the casserole with the onions and grains, and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper to taste, cover tightly (use aluminum foil between pot and cover if necessary for a good seal), and bake at 350 degrees F for 1 hr. NOTES: I use alot less oil (only as much as needed to keep things from sticking in my cast-iron dutch oven), add hot peppers and fresh herbs (rosemary is especially delicious; i dislike dried oregano so i use less or none), add soy sauce instead of salt, and saute the mushrooms first in the same pan (taking them out when done) so i dont have to wash two pans :^>.

Bring the mixture to a boil over medium heat, covered, then take it off the heat, remove the cover and let it stand until it's at room temperature. Cover and let it stand overnight. The next morning sterilize 5 pint jars with new flats and lids by boiling in water to cover for 12 minutes. Leave the jars in the hot water. Bring the chutney mixture to a boil over low heat and boil slowly, uncovered, until thick, about 1 hour. Stir often. Spoon the mixture into the hot, sterile jars, and seal with flats and lids. Process the jars in a boiling water bath for 10 minutes. After the jars have cooled, press down on the tops of each one to make sure it has formed a vacuum seal. Lable and date the jars. Refrigerate any jar in which the lid pops, or is non-concave and sealed down tight. Store at least 1 month in a cool, dark place before serving. This chutney will keep up to a year in a cool, dark storage space. So good you could eat it with a spoon, this spicy preserved pear sets off Indian entrees as well as Southern picnic suppers. Spread a little on a piece of homemade bread then layer with chicken salad with ruffled lettuce for a zippy lunch. Use up less-than-perfect Bartletts, cutting away bruised spots as you peel and core the fruit. Always try to include about one-quarter unripe fruit for best pectin development. For a chunky texture, cut the fruit coarsley. If you prefer a more jam-like texture, cut the fruit into smaller pieces. Source: Medford Mail Tribune, 23 August 1994 Typed by Katherine Smith

Raw Pie Crust Categories: Basics, Candy, Cookies, Desserts, Pies, Snacks Serves: 1 Ingredients: 1c pitted dates 2c pecans, pistachios and almonds 1c almonds 2 tbsp orange juice Instructions: Grind the one cup of almonds (other nuts are too oily) in clean, dry food processor until fairly fine power. Stop grinding way before nuts start to turn buttery. Set Aside. Put remaining two cups of three-nut mixture into food processor. Grind until fine enough that they just barley begin to get some nut-butter sticking on the sides of the machine Add dates and mix a very long time. Mix will eventually start to ball up as the oils start to pull out of the ground nuts Finally, with machine still running, add orange juice. The clumps of mixture will suddenly ball up in one solid, rich mass. Put the set aside ground almond powder into strainer/sifter and shake powder over wax paper. Put entire ball of nut/date mixture in center. Press down. Sprinkle more nut powder over top. Put another sheet of wax paper on top. Roll out with rolling pin into size big enough to fit pie pan. Pull off wax paper from top side of crust. Sprinkle almond powder in pie tin. Turn date/nut crust over into pan. Pull off last sheet of wax paper. Gently press into pie pan, trimming off excess. Dust the rim of the pie crust with remaining almond powder. Fill with raw pie mixture: apple-raspberry, pumpkin, banana-carob creme, California lime, etc. A coffee/nut grinder can be used to grind nuts instead, then all other material can be run though Champion juicer for similar results if a food processor isn't available; but filling will not be as smooth Try adding raw carob earlier on in the processing, for variety. Also, you can put spoon-sized balls of mixture into freezer for great candy.

Red Kidney Bean Soup Categories: Soups, Appetizers, Lunch, Vegetables, Mark's Serves: 1 Ingredients: 1 tb Vegetable oil 1 md Onion, sliced 4 Garlic cloves, crushed 1 md Carrot, sliced 2 tb Red chiles, chopped, fresh* 1/2 ts Thyme 2 tb Parsley 2 Bay leaves 1/2 c Tomatoes, finely chopped 3 ts Tomato paste 1 c Red kidney beans, soaked 7 c Vegetable stock Salt & pepper 1/2 tb Nutritional yeast, optional+ Instructions: Heat oil in a large soup pot. Stir in the onions, garlic and carrots. Cover & sweat over low heat for 5 minutes. Add the chiles and herbs, stir well & continue to cook, covered, for a further 5 minutes. Stir in the tomatoes, tomato paste & kidney beans. Mix well, ensure that the heat is very low, & cook for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Pour in the stock, season with salt & pepper & bring to a boil. When at a full rolling boil, let it boil hard for 5 minutes, then reduce the heat & simmer until the beans are tender. The length of time will vary, depending upon the age of the beans, from 50 minutes, to 2 hours. When cooked, turn off the heat, stir in the nutritional yeast, if desired & let cool. Once cool, transfer the soup, in batches, to a food processor or blender & blend until very smooth. Return to a clean pot & gently re-heat. Serve with good, home-made bread. It will also work with a good, hearty flat bread, if that's not too much of a contradiction in terms. Try a Native flat bread, for example. * I'm experimenting with fresh chiles rather than dry ones, I find the flavour to be intense, but I find that I may be over doing the quantities, so reduce the amount if you prefer less hot food. If you do not have fresh, a good guideline is to use dried in the following quantities: 1 dried chile gives a mild flavour; 2 give a medium heat; 3 will be hot; then there's people like me & others who will go up from there, depending upon taste. The trick is to use only enough chiles so that the other tastes are not masked. + This is optional. It's another area of experimenting. I find that a little nutritional yeast in pureed foods, or in "cream" sauces, gives added creaminess to dishes. It is entirely up to the cook. Recipe by Mark Satterly.

Bring to boil, remove from heat and let rest 1 hour. Then add chopped onion, garlic, and simmer for 1 1/2 hours. Chop potatoes in large chunks; do not peel.

Thinly slice cabbage and add to soup along with rice or spaghetti. Simmer another 20 minutes. Add more water if too thick. Add tomato wedges for the last 10 minutes, just before serving. HELPFUL HINTS: Kidney beans make a good rich broth, but any kind of bean also may be used. Soup freezes well, so make a large batch when you have time and freeze half for use on a budy day. Try using some chopped spinach, instead of the cabbage. By changing the vegetables and beans used, the soup can be different each time you make it. It is a meal in itself.

Season with salt and pepper. Set aside. Chop the sun dried tomatoes and soak them for 15 to 30 minutes in just enough bean cooking liquid to soften and release their flavor. Fold into the beans. Fold in the yogurt. In a large saute pan over high heat, wilt the greens in the vinegar. Drain well and season with salt, pepper, hot pepper flakes aned additional vinegar if desired. To assemble the crostini, grill or toast the whole grain bread. While warm, rub it with the remaining garlic clove, cut in half. Spreead the bread slices with white bean puree and top each with chopped greens. *Note* In southern Italy, people know how to make satisfying meals out of very little. This crostini is a variation on capriata, a slice of grilled bread spread with a rich and garlicky white bean puree and topped with tart wilted greens. To replace the olive oil, which keeps the bean puree moist, use stock and yogurt.
