Ring in the New Year with Black-Eyed Peas, Slightly Updated.
Heat a large soup kettle over medium-high heat. Add salt pork; fry until golden brown and fat has rendered, 4 to 5 minutes. Add onions and pepper; sauté until tender, about 5 minutes. Add peas, chicken broth, and coin. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered and stirring occasionally, until peas are fully tender and cooking liquid turns from translucent to opaque, adding water as necessary to keep peas moist but not soupy, about 1 hour. When peas have fully softened, season generously with salt and pepper and stir in thyme. Continue to simmer to blend flavors, a couple of minutes longer. Serve with a dish of red onion and vinegar or pepper sauce alongside.
Note: You can quickly soak your beans by pouring boiling water over them. Then they’re ready in an hour or two.
Grilled fresh corn on the cob.
The big debate? Cook with husks on or husks off? I say husks off! Cook on the grill, this way the sweet corn kernels get a smoky-grilled flavor. There’s no need to blanch it first. Use a stove top grill or outside grill–just peel, remove silk and place right on the grill. Simple as that! Then top it with a homemade chili lime mayo and fresh cilantro.
The best stuffed portabellos ever, and they are gluten-free and high in protein using almond meal instead of bread crumbs!
Oh, this sauce. Drinkable.
Yes! You can cook radishes and they are delicious! The radishes mellow some but still hold firmness. And ramps! They are available in spring for only about 8 weeks so eat them while you can. They have a pungent garlic flavor and make everything taste like spring!
