Garlic


From the July 16 Co-op newsletter:

Ingredients:

  • 3 Cucumbers
  • 3/4 C Sugar
  • 1 C White Vinegar
  • 8-10 Ice Cubes
  • Salt to taste

Directions:

Thinly slice cucumbers. You choose if you want to leave the skin on or take it off. Place in a non-reactive bowl.

In a saucepan combine white vinegar and sugar, cook till sugar dissolves.

Once cool, pour the sugar/vinegar mixture over the cucumbers.

Top with salt and ice cubes. Place in refrigerator.

Once the cubes melt, the salad is ready.

You could add if you’re feeling fancy: Sesame seeds, dill, cayenne, garlic, onions, basil, parsley, mint, or pepper.

Recipe by Ann Hale, from the July 2 Co-op newsletter:

Adjust the ingredients to meet your family’s dietary preferences. In place of turkey sausage, use cooked grain. Whatever vegetables you have around will work for the stuffing, and feel free to top with whatever cheese you have on hand.

On a baking sheet, roast cut side down for 15 minutes @ 350 degrees:
2 medium (8 “) zucchini, cut in half lengthwise, pulp scooped out and set aside

Saute in small amount of olive or other good oil:
2 Cups (approx.) total of a mixture of reserved zucchini pulp, chopped bell peppers, swiss chard, spinach, onions, shallots, parsley, fresh basil and/or other herbs, fresh garlic, tomato, mushrooms, or whatever you have on hand

Add 2 Cups (approx.) cooked turkey sausage or a cooked whole grain of your choice

Season to taste with sea salt and ground pepper; lemon zest adds a refreshing zing if you like.

Stuff the boats with the sautéed mix; sprinkle with something crunchy like a mixture of chopped nuts/seeds, and lightly drizzle with olive or other oil.

Bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly. If you like, sprinkle with a grated cheese.

Wash, peel and seeds the loquats. Place them in a bowl and coat them with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and the juice of
half a lemon juice. Let sit 15 min. Remove the pits from the apricots. Coarsely chop them and set aside.

In a deep saucepan, heat the oil. Add the cumin and fennel seeds. Once the seeds start popping in the hot oil, add the shallots and cook for about 2 minutes until they’re translucent.

Add the loquats, apricots, shredded apples, ginger garlic paste, dry mustard, paprika and red chili powder. Cook over high heat for about 2 minutes until some fruits caramelize and add vinegar, molasses, honey and the rest of the brown sugar. Season with a little salt.

Bring to a boil then immediately reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook for about 15-20 additional minutes. Stir occasionally.

Finish with lemon juice. Bring one last time to a rolling boil, then turn off the heat.
