Happy days - pears keep well in the refrigerator (these are beautiful, floral Corellas), and frangipane paste keeps equally well in the freezer. Both do pretty well when baked up inside a frozen chocolate short crust pastry shell 😉🍐🍫#pear #almond #frangipane #chocolate #tart #freezerisyourfriend #leftoversfromleftovers #wastenotwantnot

Broast 🦃 breast on Dijon mustard canellini beans: brined, then roasted under cartouche, on top of the wine-sauced beans. And a kickin’ backyard herby salsa verde. With the help of a meat thermometer - for avoidance of leathery disappointment- the breast was cooked just until 73”, and juicy perfection. And I’d say that the 2 of us managed to polish off no more than a third of this in one sitting! Lots of #leftovers right there 😉. Very happy with the results preparing the breast this way - but would like to try using my new immersion circulator for some sous vide action next time 🤔. ⠀

#prep: beautiful winey briney, for a big ol’ turkey breast. Though I know that many are, I am not attached to breasts (I had to go cold 🦃 on my own, after all 😉). But I’m trying to make the most of the whole bird, and am hedging my bets with this potentially dastardly cut by giving it a briney bath. I’ve been gobbling on about how hard it is to find true true free-range pastured poultry where I live - but I can get my hands on good turkey (from @leadouxturkeys). So I’ll be road testing various bits and techniques to see how turkey goes as a replacement for the usual feathered fowl 🐓. BTW - I know wonderful producers in my state that do very good work: dear @femmedelafowl of @vueduvolcanfarm, and Mirboo Pastured Poultry; and others I know deserve a shout-out, but haven’t had - only because they’re too far away from me: @milkingyardfarm and @hand_to_ground_emily - give them a try if you’re lucky enough to get your hands on their produce where you live (or close enough to get to without adding too many food miles to your meal 🚙💨). #notsp

Shakshuka/low-carb huevos rancheros mash-up?🤔: trying to use up last season’s spaghetti squash, before the next crop ripens. I like roasting them whole, and then either filling the halves, or scooping out the innards for something like this. The tomato-squash base has bite, including a little green chilli, is topped with our chookies’ gorgeous eggs, and a little avo-love to bulk up this spicy #meatfreemonday meal. 🌶🍅🥚🥑 #eattherainbow

This time of year, the heat and garden’s bounty make me come over all Med ☀️☺️. Old-school, perhaps - but there’s a lot to be said for ancient cuisines that know how to make the most of minimal and simple ingredients (and veg in particular). That unremarkable-looking dun sauce in the foreground is the remarkable 4-ingredient flavour bomb that is #anchoïade (if you’re a misguided anchovy-hater, avert your sorry eyes now ⚠️): cured anchovies, olive oil, and our garlic and  home fermented wine vinegar - recipe basics👇🏻. For frenzied and guaranteed double-dipping, there are backyard eggs, beans, potatoes, carrots, and basil (dried olives and caperberries - for now 😉 - from the deli). Do not knock this sauce until you’ve tried it - and then prepare to hold yourself back from drinking it directly from the bowl! 🐟🥕🥔🥚🇫🇷 ❤️ #summer #eattherainbow #latergram⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Ingredients: ⠀
1-2 cloves of garlic⠀
40g cured anchovies (about 1 small tin, or 1/2 small jar)⠀
30ml wine vinegar of choice ⠀
120ml EVOO⠀
.⠀
.⠀
Method:⠀
I find it easiest to pop everything into a tall, narrow container, just wide enough to accommodate your immersion blender, and to use that appliance to blend until the sauce is smooth and emulsified. If you prefer, though - go for your life with a mini-processor, blender, or mortar and pestle 💪🏻⠀

Brioche rolls with home made pork sausage and kraut. And grainy mustard FTW. Yes, the pic's a bit messy - but I was in a hurry to get into it, K? Dayyum, this @breadin5 brioche dough makes everything taste more delicious! And it takes meagre effort to pull together a meal like this when you have homemade dough waiting patiently at the ready in the fridge, beside a jar of your own tangy kraut - and snags from the freezer.

This might look, from afar, like a colony of bacteria - but is a little batch of bread rolls made using my current obsession: @breadin5’s brioche dough recipe. These are sweetly fragrant (that’d be the honey 🍯😉), and tender. Very handy to be able to make only as many as you need, and know that the rest of the batch of dough will happily keep for whatever else you have in mind. Once your “master batch” is in the fridge, you need to allow only about 2 hours for the second rise (after shaping), and baking. Dangerously easy - especially when the final result tastes so good 😊🥖💛 #bread #brioche #breadin5

Having made stock from our Festivus turkey bones, and with some of the turkey skin pangrattato kicking around in the freezer, this little kohlrabi risotto’s just the ticket for #meatlite Monday.

Not everyone has enough earth to sustain themselves entirely- or even largely- from their own garden, or the time to do so (and we don’t either!). This, and how hard we have to work agains bugs, birds, bats and bunnies - without the use of poison- makes me especially grateful for the resources we do have.

#after: red cabbage and caraway #kraut. I was asked to post a picture of the final result. So this is it - #simples 😉! I think cabbage is the easiest of veg to ferment - it so obligingly gives up juice to create its own brine with salt, is ready quickly - and makes the perfect partner for so many of the foods that I love (home made pork sausages, any type of schnitzel, eisbein, schweinzhaxe, corned beef, Lancashire hotpot, ‘dog rolls! - the list goes on 😍…). I do love it traditional-style with #caraway, perhaps because that's how I remember tasting it first as a child. But it's still wonderful without - if caraway's not your speed - and easy to switch up to a fiery kimchi too. Added bonus: this stuff is really good for you, in many ways. And if you love pickles as I do, but not the sugar that usually goes into them, fermented veg is the way to go. Also lasts for ages in the fridge - I would never be without it! 💜#saurkraut #cabbage #caraway #salt #time #preservetheharvest [This small-batch preserving jar recipe from @thekitchn.]

Eking with bubble ‘n squeaking: making the most of the last of our leftover smoked turkey, brussels sprouts and potato, in an old school #bubbleandsqueak for two. With a whisper of sweet smoked paprika. And a crispy fried turkey skin, panko, caper and backyard parsley pangrattato. Grainy mustard for tang. Oh, and of course I thought it best to #putafriedeggonit (we’re struggling to keep up with the hens at the moment!)☺️🥚🦃 🥔 #wastenotwantnot #leftoversfromleftovers #nosetotail

Another day, another slaw ☺️: Vietnamese-ish leftover #smokedturkey salad - a light and bright Summer gap-filler after days of overindulgence. This was such a beautiful bird from @leadouxturkeys - I intend to use every inch of it! #wastenotwantnot #leftoversfromleftovers 🦃🇻🇳 .⠀

Morning, buns!: I’ve decided to call these lazy laminated brioche #morningbuns “brobuns”. No, wait… Maybe not 🤔. These are rolled around fruit mince, dredged in roast almond sugar, and drizzled with a @cointreau and vanilla bean glaze. #becauseleftoverscanwaitforlunch #happyboxingday

Some Festivuses are too frenetic to savour, as they whizz by in a blinding tinselfest of chaos. Some are warm and fuzzy, spent cozily wrapped in a love and champagne haze. I’m not entirely feeling this one. Too many gaps in my heart, and too much yearning. Most of the year I can keep a lid on that shit. But right about now, not so much. So back to the drawing board on mindfulness, I guess, and gratitude. For what I do have. Every day that I am here, is a gift. I shall think on that. This is the swirly top of a bittersweet cake to match my mood: @nigellalawson’s wonderfully dark and moody #chocolate #gingerbread slab cake, under a comforter of #cinnamon #creamcheesefrosting. Super easy, feeds a crowd, and keeps well - perfect for the Big Days. May the coming year fill your every day with joy, health and love. #happyfestivus #festivusfortherestofus

Rubbed and ready: #drybrine  FTW. A beautiful bird from @leadouxturkeys. Destined for some #lowandslow on the Weber tomorrow, to free up some oven real estate (who am I kidding - I #lovemyweber 😉). 🦃🔥🎄#spatchcock #turkey #eatlocal #freerange Method and rub @kenjilopezalt via @seriouseats.

#after: @inagarten’s orange chocolate chunk cake, hauled from the freezer to fill a bundt-shaped gap in the house. Crowned liberally with #darkchocolate ganache, and a few candied orange slices from the pantry. The fragrance of this cake is so enticing - and it follows through in the flavour department. I’ve been chasing an orange cake recipe that tastes like the one my late mother used to bake. I think this one beats it. 🧡😌🍊🍫 #orangecake #thefreezerisyourfriend⠀

#before: This is the inimitable @inagarten’s recipe for orange chocolate chunk cakes, baked into one large bundt. It emerged as the perfect emergency-cake from the depths of the freezer and, after a gentle defrosting, was doused with syrup from our very last-of-the-last blood oranges. This glistening glory now awaits a final flourish of ganache - because #darkchocolate. 🧡🍊🍫 #wastenotwantnot #thefreezerisyourfriend⠀

Smoked monster Berkshire #porkribs 😋: I was hoping to cook these in my new vertical smoker - but perhaps left it too late in the day to get it out of its box and put it together 🙄. So into the trusty Weber charcoal grill they went, #lowandslow over indirect heat, with some cherrywood chips thrown in for good measure. [For deets on the ribs - check out my previous post.] ⠀
⠀
The humble slaw on the side deserves an honourable mention too, though. For anyone following my feed, it'll soon become obvious that I do love a slaw: give me a veg that can be shredded, and I'm in! Cabbage is a favourite, not only because it's an obvious delicious choice, but for its multiple nutritional benefits too (not least of which are certain chemoprotective qualities). And to top it all off, it's conveniently also #lowcarb! ⠀

I always have homemade mayo in the fridge (from our eggs, home fermented cider vinegar or lemon juice, mustard, and olive oil forming the base - flavourings added to taste). But I must confess that I adore - and frequently come back to - @nigellalawson's New Orleans coleslaw dressing: to mayonnaise, there's added buttermilk (I use my #kefir instead), a little maple syrup, cider vinegar, and walnuts (I roast mine). Soooo many good things together right there - abfab! 🐖 🔥 #lovemyweber #lowandslow #pork #ribs #smokedmeat #bbq #barbecue #barbeque #slaw #hotsmoked #smokedpork #berkshirepork #paleo #keto #lchf #banting #gf #glutenfree #mediterraneandiet #weber #weberbbqausnz #weberbbq #nigella #coltishpork #eatlocal #notsponsored
