Pear & Fig Chutney

Pear & Fig Chutney by Amos Miller

I still had a few pears from the orchard and the figs are almost finished. Why not a Pear & Fig chutney? Easily done! This is everything a chutney should be. The flavors of the pears, combined with the figs' texture and sweetness, the plump raisins and blend of vinegars easily marry to the aromatic spices. And a quality cracked…

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit

Blueberries with Lime Sugar & Citrus Confit by Amos Miller

This is one of my absolute favorite berry desserts and comes from Tony Bourdain and Les Halles Restaurant in NYC. I have had the audacity to make just one minor modification to the recipe, but I have no regrets, and neither will you. We grow blueberries all season long at Walnut Ridge Farm, so there are always opportunities to try…

Easy Fruit Cobbler

Easy Fruit Cobbler by Nancy Miyasaki

This is a super simple dessert that's great for a large or small gathering. I generally use nectarines or peaches and some sort of berries, but cherries plums and apricots will work too.

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick!

Apple Crisp – Microwave Quick! by Salad Foodie

I haven’t found a quicker apple crisp recipe that tastes as good (or better) than oven-baked. Simple prep and fast cooking make this a perfect dessert when you’re short on time. Plus you can make it year round as the microwave won't heat up the kitchen.

Delicious Freezer Jam

Delicious Freezer Jam by Nancy Miyasaki

I took the kids berry picking and ended up with a ton of extra berries. Instead of throwing the berries we couldn't eat away, I decided to make homemade jam out of them. Everyone, from my husband to our baby, has loved this jam! So I thought I would share it with you. It's amazingly easy, so don't be scared to try it. We've had…

Joy of Cooking's Peach Pie I.

Joy of Cooking's Peach Pie I. by K. Garner

I love this recipe because it highlights the red interior of the halved peaches and looks gorgeous. It's faster to prepare because there's less slicing, and the single pie crust saves dough--no pun intended.

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way

Mincemeat Cookies ~ The Old Fashioned Way by Amos Miller

I have always loved mincemeat - pie with vanilla ice cream or cookies and cocoa. This is how we make them, except here I will substitute Borden's Nonesuch Mincemeat, or Robertson's (preferred) in a jar instead of homemade mincemeat. You can substitute your favorite shortening (vegetable works great) while I will use rendered leaf…

Pawpaw Cookies

Pawpaw Cookies by James Buel

Pawpaws have been called poor man's bananas. If you can't find pawpaws in your backyard, as did the ancient Seminoles and Choctaw Indians, you can substitute bananas in this recipe. Wait until the banana skins are speckled and nearly overripe. That speckling is natural sugar.

Strawberry Pretzel dessert

Strawberry Pretzel dessert by Frosted Flaker

Fell in love with this when I first tried it about 25 years ago. Nicknamed it 'World Class jello' since it has such a premium taste and quality to it.

Plum Pineapple Jam

Plum Pineapple Jam by Salad Foodie

I devised this recipe when I wanted a variation of plum jam and thought why not use canned crushed pineapple? The result was beautiful jewel-tone jam with a pleasing fruit combo of flavors and textures. No added commercial pectin here, so if the thought of standing and stirring, oh about a half hour, scares you away, go with the…

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries

In-a-Pinch Cranberry Sauce made from Dried Cranberries by Salad Foodie

I serve turkey year round but forget to keep canned cranberry sauce on hand; even when I do it's hard to use up the whole can because not everone eats it. Recently the craving for cranberries with roast turkey breast was too strong. I grabbed the Craisin bag from the pantry and experimented making a small amount of cranberry sauce.…

Key Lime Pie

Key Lime Pie by Amos Miller

Too early for real, fresh fruit pies here - but Spring brings Key Limes, and that means unbaked Key Lime Pie with a slightly sweetened sour cream topping. I use pasteurized-in-the-shell eggs, so there is no issue with salmonella and I can move the pies from prep to cooler. Saves a load of time and makes a fabulous, flavorful,…
