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…

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.

Budwig Diet Smoothie

Budwig Diet Smoothie by John Spottiswood

While there isn't a lot of hard evidence behind it, she was definitely ahead of her time in recognizing the importance of good fats, and the harmful effects of bad fats, in our modern diets. She strongly encouraged the…

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.

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.

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…
