Balsamic Smoked Almond Paste

BALSAMIC SMOKED ALMOND PASTE

It’s difficult to believe that this is all nuts. The texture is much like a chunky dried fruit paste, only this has a melt in your mouth component. Guests will ask what fruit it is for sure. Fig, is it fig? No, no, it’s all nuts except of course for the flavorings. This is what vinegar does to nuts? Wow!

Makes 1-3/4 cups

Brownwood Farms Pepper Jelly

Pepper jelly isn’t something I ever reached for or thought about when shopping. For some reason that day it caught my eye and without hesitation I picked it up and put it in the grocery cart.

My first attempt to use it was on top of a whipped topping on toast. It was so thick and so congealed that it wouldn’t spread. Still, I ate it and liked it.

The next day I spread it on the toast first absent the margarine, then topped it with the whipped topping. Perfect.

Although I like jellies, jams and preserves much thinner in viscosity, this jelly had a melt in your mouth component that I thoroughly enjoyed – and it wasn’t too hot!

I served it on black Russian Toast minus the margarine because of the added whip topping. So I saved a few grams of fat.


RICH’S WHIP TOPPING is widely and consistently available, though not in mainstream grocery stores.

Follow the directions on the carton. It’s already sweetened, so you won’t need additional sugar. Halfway through the whip when it forms soft peaks, I add a small amount of cocoa, and a few drops of liquid smoke.

The cocoa, believe it or not, has the unexpected effect of bringing the cream to stiffer peaks faster. Nice.

TOFURKY PLANT BASED SAVORY GRAVY

Pre-made, pre-packaged of course. We can always use more animal-free gravies and sauces. It’s the sauce, the gravy, the drizzle that makes or completes, enhances or highlights what’s under it. And so it has always been revered and respected and looked after with great care. Pass the gravy. Who says no? Of course we doctor it up and take it to the moon!
