On the contrary, it was sweet and a little tangy, sticky at the corners and jammy in pockets, the fruit soft and the crust crumbly with butter. It was made with Royal Blenheim apricots , the menu gently boasted, and though they looked pretty average, their flavor was enormous: ripe, dense, almost rich.
They tasted as though their essential apricotiness, or whatever you might call it, had been multiplied and concentrated by one of those fancy machines in Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. In other words, this was a delicious tart. And lo and behold, they did. Which is why I am yammering on and on about this.
I ordinarily hang on every word that Judy Rodgers writes, but in the case of this tart, I decided to forgo her crust recipe. Pie and tart doughs, I have noticed, tend to be a very personal matter for cooks: each of us has one that we love, and we tend to want to stand by it. I know I do. I made that stuff for years.
But then my friend Olaiya introduced me to hers, and it was very, very persuasive. I am in love. Sorry, Martha.
We can still be friends! In the heat of the oven, the dough goes golden, crisp, and toasty, and the apricots release their juices to mingle with the sugar, forming a glossy, sweet-tart glaze that settles under and around them. Because this preparation is so simple, be sure to choose the very best apricots you can find. If you can, ask to taste them before you buy.

There is little in this recipe to disguise their flaws, so if they are mealy, watery, tart, or otherwise lacking, this is not the best use for them. This tart would also be delicious with Italian or French prune plums, those small, oblong, purple-skinned plums that come into season in late August and September. For crust : 4 Tbsp.

Thank you so much for supporting our FFF parties this year! Love the sweet potato hummus and do not mind trying the same with my beloved lamb either:! Hope all the gatherings go great and all the in-betweens feel fine also!!!! Oh I feel exactly the same way! We had friends over last Sunday night for a Christmas catch up, and I spent most of the day baking and cooking as I also have to make everything myself.
This looks like a great starter, at this rate your recipes will be making up our entire NYE party menu! Lauren Create Bake Make recently posted.. These look so delicious, Tania. And I agree about the pre-made dips and salsas. There may be some decent ones out there, but home-made trumps any of them. Dips are so easy to make and so much tastier when home made that I wonder if people that buy dips know how easy they are? These tarts look fab! Lorraine Not Quite Nigella recently posted.. How adorable are these!
Definitely the perfect cutie pie appetizers. Joanne recently posted.. Pumpkin Baked Ziti with Sage. Your email address will not be published. Recipe Rating. Leave this field empty. Jump to Recipe Print Recipe.

Put everything in a large mixing bowl. Using your immersion blender, pulse and blend the chopped vegetables and seasonings until smooth. Cover the mixing bowl and refrigerate at least 20 minutes to let the flavors develop, and up to overnight.
Before serving, taste the gazpacho and add extra salt, cayenne, or vinegar as necessary. Serve topped with green onion, parsley, avocado, sour cream, hot sauce, and black pepper or any combination. Pork butt is the best pork for pulling. And pulled pork dishes are what summer is all about.
Pulled pork barbecue, pulled pork tacos, pulled pork carnitas for nachos, if you know how to cook pork butt you open the door to a porcine wonderland of culinary possibilities. So these butts are technically shoulders, and they tend to be pretty big. I like to make my slow-cooker butts as neutral in flavor as possible because I always end up with so much more meat than can be consumed in one dinner, and pulled pork makes such a fantastic base for a lot of great meals.
In addition to an abundance of pulled pork for freezing and future meals, slow cooking a pork butt leaves you with a fair amount of pork fat and collagen-rich porky liquid for enhancing sauces, soups, or maybe a batch of baked beans. Oh, and the best part: butts are cheap. Butts, man! Ingredients: a pork butt a. Decide on a ratio of salt to sugar. I like and can usually comfortably cover a pound pork butt with 2 Tbsp salt to 4 Tbsp sugar. A ratio of salt to sugar is not very sweet, so if you like a sweeter deal, up the ratio.
Cover the pork butt with the salt and sugar mix and set it in the slow cooker, fat side up. Just coat the meat in a good layer of the seasoning and toss the rest. Remove the ceramic crock from the slow cooker and run it under the broiler of your oven for a few minutes to crisp up the fat on top. If you have a torch, you could also use that to get the fat on top crispy. Allow the meat to cool and tear it up I like to use gloved hands for this, but forks will also do the trick.
Pick through the meat and get rid of the bone, any weird connective tissue-y bits and un-crispy fat. Divide up any meat you want to use immediately for carnitas tortas perhaps?
Pour all the liquid from the pot into another container and allow the fat to separate to the top. You can save the fat for cooking, or toss it and use the collagen-rich pork cooking liquid to make beans or sauce or extra juicy barbecue. A bit of chopping, some corn cob scraping, a turn in the slow cooker to extract some liquid from all the summer produce, and milk to finish. Do not skip the bacon and green onion topping. This chowder is definitely on the sweet side and the bacon and green onion lend sharpness and depth that are really critical to keeping things balanced.
Start by cooking your bacon. The point of crock pot corn chowder is to keep the kitchen cool, so I recommend using your microwave unless you already have some cooked bacon on hand.
