Monday Eats

Things happen when we have random items sitting in our fridge. All produce used were either acquired through the Ontario Artisan Share Program or Culinarium. Tonight, I was determined to make something with:

Angelo Bean Berkshire Baco Noir Infused Sausage
Red Chieftain Potatoes from Rose Mountain Farms
Green Cabbage
Fuji Apples from Warner’s Farm
Saskatoon Berries

With a quick search on Epicurious.com, I landed on the Cabbage with Sausage recipe. The instructions were simple and after chopping up a few items, I was ready to go. It didn't call for many spices and I had everything else sitting around which was nice. It was so simple that I half doubted the recipe. However, when we finally ate it, the flavours really came through. The cabbage and potatoes was made extremely flavourful with the sausage and beer. The waxy potatoes were satisfying and with a spoonful of grainy mustard, it made Monday feel a little better.

We finished off the meal with Apple-toon sauce, a recipe from the OAS Blog. It called for extra sugar but we found the apples were sweet enough for our taste. The recipe asked the dish to be finished with grated lemon peel which we really enjoyed. We rarely make dessert from scratch but with recipes like this one, we might just have to do it more often. It surely helped with injecting more fruits into our system, something that we never seem to have enough of.

P.S. The picture of the Cabbage with Sausage looks bland and does not do the dish justice.
