8 – 10 large Tomatoes
1 Clove Garlice
1 Small Onion
1 Green Pepper
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 Tsp Ground Cumin
3/4 c. EVOO
1/4 c. Sherry
1 piece of bread (wheat, rye, french) tried them all and depending on the flavor you like they are good
Prep vegetables – clean and de-stem. Peel cucumber and garlic, remove seeds from the green pepper.
Soak bread in water and then squeeze out liquid.
Cut onion, cucumber and tomatoes in to 1 inch chunks, mince the garlic and put in food processor, add remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.
Chill and serve cold.
As we begin planting our gardens, another cold snap is about to hit. So we thought we share a recipe from Oma (German Grandma) on how to make Onion Pie – Zwiebelkuchen. (recipe circa 1932) Enjoy it now before it stays warm and save it for fall when your onions start coming up. Don’t have onions….know worries we have plenty on hand to get you started.
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Mix yeast and salt into flour and then add the warm water, mixing until a smooth dough forms. Form dough into ball, put into a bowl to rise. Lightly oil the top and cover with a towel. Let rise at least an hour.
To make the filling finely chop the onions and then saute with the butter adding the butter as needed. Once onions are soft remove from heat. Mix flour and cream until completely blended add eggs, salt, caraway seeds and onions.
Take risen dough and roll out on pizza pan – be sure to form a crust all around the perimeter. Spread filling over dough. Sprinkle bacon over top. Bake until crust become golden brown.
Well, folks, it’s been a goodly while since we posted here in the blog. Cobwebs galore! Yikes!
Anyway, what prompts the sudden post, you ask? None other than Holiday Time! Like it or not, you guys, the holiday season is upon us, and it’s time to start thinking about gifts for all those friends and loved ones. Sure, you could get them gift cards and socks. Those things are alright, we guess, but what about getting them something unique?
Like… maybe some incredible, local, handmade foods? Maybe some art, you guys?
