Cauliflower sauce

As someone who is lactose intolerant and not a huge fan of cauliflower I was intrigued by the idea of making sauce out of it, I had seen a couple alfredo recipes that still used cream in them but I tried this recipe from the Detoxinista blog


You saute onion and garlic, then add water and the cauliflower chopped up to oil until they are tender. I made sure to wash and soak my cauliflower as I did find a couple critters hiding in it and some dust, I had to be careful while cutting it to check for these as well.

Then you puree the contents of the pan water and all and add salt to taste. I added salt, pepper, and a couple basil leaves then reheated the puree in the same pan.
 Had it on some penne and I can't say it is the same as Alfredo sauce, but it was really delicious.

We made green chile sauce and RJR salsa

We made several batches of salsa and then we had so many green tomatoes we made a few batches of green tomato chile sauce. We ate the extra salsa still hot yummy.




Chive blossom vinegar

To make chive blossom vinegar we trim off the flowers from chives and soak them in vinegar for a couple weeks. The chive flowers infuse the vinegar with a garlicky flavour and a beautiful pink hue. This can be used as a flavoured vinegar for salad dressings, dips, to sprinkle on fish or fries, or for a bowl of cucumber slices.


A ready batch.


Clean jars.


The light shining through the pink vinegar. So pretty.

Here's a recipe for a vinaigrette made with chive blossom vinegar.

RJR Delicious Red Tomato Salsa

We always like to make multiple batches of this to keep us through the year. Tomorrow we're going to try out some green tomato recipes.
RJR's Salsa
First chop all of the vegetables
7 cups of tomatoes chopped 2 cups of onions chopped 1-2 cups of green peppers chopped 1/2 cup of cilantro chopped OPTIONAL 6 Hot peppers - chopped

Combine all of the chopped ingredients in a large cooking pot and add the following. 1 Tablespoon of coarse salt 1 Teaspoon of ground cumin 1 can of (156 ml ) tomato paste 3/4 cup of white vinegar
Cook for 1 1/2 to 2 hours at a low simmer. Taste and adjust seasonings, we like granulated garlic and freshly ground black pepper. Pour into sterilized jars.
If you like a smoother salsa chop finely or after cooking pulse in a food processor if you like a chunky salsa rough chop the vegetables.
