When I made my Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce, I wanted to toss some Pickled Carrot & Daikon in them. Depending on where you live, they can be hard to find, so I made mine.
When I made my Steak Ramen Bowls with Chipotle Yum Yum Sauce, you know what I needed? I needed the Yum Yum Sauce.
Simple little garnishing mixtures like this Cilantro Lime Oil are a great way to add a little flavor and brightness to all kinds of things.
I love summer when the living is easy…gardening, grilling and maybe even a little light canning. I’m not about putting up quarts of tomatoes (although you should see how many plants we put in, lol!) but I do tinker with small batches of something special. Cowboy Candy (Sweet & Hot) Jalapenos fit the bill & bonus…they go right in the fridge and don’t have to be “processed.”
I love making fabulous little somethings to spark up dinner, especially when that fabulous little something is as delish and as easy as these Pickled Red Onions.
Some of us, umm older, people know all about making home-made wing sauce. Yep. That’s because believe it or not, there was a day when you couldn’t buy the stuff.
Red Onion Jam, Red Onion Confit, Caramelized Red Onions – all different names for the same thing: Rich, silky, sweet & tart, this is a condiment that should be in everyone’s fridge.
One of my summer/fall favorites is this marvelous Sour Cherry Compote. It’s a little sweet, a little tart and goes so well with so many things. I often make up a batch and can or freeze so I have it to pull out in the winter, too.
Talk about persistent, and maybe a bit coy, tomato jam came on slow for me. Before it began to whisper my name, I’d see it here and there, maybe on Pinterest, sometimes on Facebook and I think it even showed up now and again on our weekly Throwback Thursday link party.
It was a dark and stormy September day…sounds like the start of a good horror story, huh! It could have been because I needed some barbecue sauce. And I didn’t want to go out in the rain.
It wasn’t too long ago that Bacon Jam came on my radar – I can tell you when – the week we featured it on Throwback Thursday, back in July. Well, the recipe looked marvelous, and I used it for inspiration! Thank you, Chef Julianna of Foodie on Board! (You’ve ruined me, btw!!) If you’re cooking burgers or brats on Labor Day, think about serving up this condiment! The best condiment, evah!
