Pickled Eggs Galore

It all started at Costco, I saw this humungous jar of 24 Strub’s Pickled Eggs made with Vinegar, Water and Sugar…for 12 bucks WoW!  I remember seeing these rubbery treats at bars too.  Intrigued, I found Elise Bauer’s recipe and tried 3 of the 4 variations.

My FAV is combining the Curry and the Jalapeno recipes together.  The hard part is waiting a week for the flavours to penetrate into the egg…the easy part is reusing the brine for a second batch.  Click on this Pickled Eggs Galore PDF to see the five versions.

This post is dedicated to my dear friend Olive Warrior, she thinks this treat is Da Bomb !

Rob Benedet’s Barbecued Salmon Fillets

I found Rob Benedet’s Barbecued Salmon Fillets in the first BC’s Best Salmon Recipe book.  Download all 4 here. Don’t get turned off by the use of a bit of Ketchup, it’s part of a simple BBQ sauce, great on Salmon or Steelhead Trout.  You can barbecue it or simply bake at 325 for 15 minutes.

Sweet and Sour Pork III

1000 folks tried Sweet and Sour Pork III on AllRecipes.com and I agree with their high rating.  There’s quite a few steps but it’s worth the effort.  To healthify it, I only use enough Oil in a PFOA-free pan to sear the Pork.   I add more colourful veggies and replace some of the Sugar with Erythritol and Green Stevia…no one was the wiser.

If you like umami, add a touch of Fish Sauce when seasoning the meat.  For more heat, add minced Jalapeno Pepper.

Serve over Chinese Rice Pilaf, garnish with toasted Sesame Seeds and Cilantro.

Guacamole

Holy Guacamole !  Food Network’s Alton Brown of Good Eat’s fame has a really good recipe for Game Day !  Great with The Better Chip Beets and Sea Salt tortilla chips.  Spinach & Kale and Jalapeno are good choices too.

I didn’t change the recipe one iota.  But if you want to double or triple the recipe, just click on this guacamole link to download a PDF.

To prevent browning, use barely ripe Avocados and press saran wrap on the surface of the dip and seal around the edges.  The Good Eat’s Guy says to let it sit for 2 hours at room temperature before serving.  Good Luck with that, I’m diggin’ in.
