Save the Tomatoes…..

If you notice your tomatoes are starting to get a bit wrinkly, they’re probably on their last legs. Buy yourself an extra week or so by roasting your tomatoes in slices or chunks. Place the roasted tomatoes in a container with olive oil, and they’ll stay good in the fridge for about a week.

MUSSELS IN TOMATO BROTH WITH BUFFALO CHORIZO
The flavors in this dish complement each other nicely and the chorizo adds a nice spice! The sauce can be made in advance, leaving the steaming of the mussels for the last minute.

Ingredients: (For two servings.)
1 – teaspoon olive oil +
4oz. – Wild Idea Buffalo Chorizo
½ – cup yellow onion, diced
1 – clove garlic, chopped
½ – teaspoon each salt & pepper
1 – teaspoon crushed fennel seeds
1 – teaspoon chili flake *optional
1 – 15oz. can, diced tomatoes
1 – cup white wine
12 to 16 mussels, washed and de-bearded

*Store mussels in the coldest spot in your refrigerator. Place on a damp paper towel in a dish and cover loosely with a damp paper towel. Do not seal in plastic as they will suffocate. Discard any mussels that when pushed shut do not stay shut, or any open or cracked mussels.

Preparation:

1 – In a heavy sauté pan over medium high heat, heat 1-teaspoon olive oil. Crumble sausage into pan and cook until lightly browned, about 4 minutes. Remove sausage from pan, place in bowl and cover with saran. Set aside.
2 – Return pan to heat and add additional oil if needed. Add onion and garlic, sautéing until tender, about 5 minutes.
3 – Add seasonings, tomatoes and wine. Stir to incorporate and bring to a boil. *At this point you could remove from heat, cover and reheat when ready to serve.
4 – Add prepared mussels, cover and allow mussels to steam for 4 minutes. Most all of the shells should have popped open. Discard un-open shells.
5 – Add chorizo back to pan and stir to incorporate and heat.
6 – Serve direct from pan or spoon into serving bowls.
7 – Garnish with cilantro and lemon wedge. Serve with warm artisan bread.

One of America’s Favorites – Succotash

September 20, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

A simple succotash prepared with kidney instead of lima beans

Succotash (from Narragansett sohquttahhash, “broken corn kernels” is a vegetable dish consisting primarily of sweet corn with lima beans or other shell beans.

Other ingredients may be added such as onions, potatoes, turnips, tomatoes, bell peppers, corned beef, salt pork, or okra.

Combining a grain with a legume provides a dish that is high in all essential amino acids.

Succotash has a long history. The dish was introduced as a stew to North American colonists in the 17th century by indigenous peoples. Composed of ingredients unknown in Europe at the time, it gradually became a standard meal in the cuisine of New England and is a traditional dish of many Thanksgiving celebrations in the region, as well as in Pennsylvania and other states.

Because of the relatively inexpensive and more readily available ingredients, the dish was popular during the Great Depression in the United States.[citation needed] It was sometimes cooked in a casserole form, often with a light pie crust on top as in a traditional pot pie.

A “kitchen sink” succotash made with corn, lima beans, okra, andouille sausage, shrimp, tomato, onion, garlic, and basil

Sweet corn (a form of maize), American beans, tomatoes, and peppers are New World foods.

Catherine Beecher’s 19th-century recipe includes beans boiled with corn cobs from which the kernels have been removed. The kernels are added later, after the beans have boiled for several hours. The corn cobs are removed and the finished stew, in proportions of 2 parts corn to 1 part beans, is thickened with flour.

Henry Ward Beecher’s recipe, published in an 1846 issue of Western Farmer and Gardner, adds salt pork, which he says is “an essential part of the affair.”

In some parts of the American South, any mixture of vegetables prepared with lima beans and topped with lard or butter is called succotash.
