I brought an appetizer..my friend's recipe she found on Oprah..just so easy and delish..it's a baked feta w/ toppings that you spread on crackers or baguettes.
I love these breads stuffed with Kalamata Olives..or Lardons..They went very well with the baked feta dish~
I used the recipe I have been using ever since making the doggie breads..I put everything in the bread machine..for the bread..and shape and stuff manually..let rise..and bake in the oven.
I love bread machines..Again only half the recipe was needed for these 3 loaves~
You can find the recipe here..~
It's so easy..and I must confess..one thing I love about this bread is that it does form a crust..but the crust softens..and I find this kind of bread much easier to eat,my husband also.We used to enjoy Ciabattas..now we find them huge and tough~It's a pleasure to bake bread.I love the Robin Hood Multi-Grain bread flour too..I vary..and make our bread ap. 3 times a week.
It was quite a grey,muggy day..and I decided to make Food and Drink's Onion Marmalade that same day.
We recently picked up the latest fabulous as always issue and I am working on a few things..I truly enjoy that magazine.The photos..the recipes..a 10. And it's free..hard to believe..only back issues are $5.00 each I just discovered.I save mine..I am missing many ,but enjoy the ones I do have.~
The Onion Marmalade is very good.In sandwiches,w/ roasted meats,as a pizza topping,hamburger topping~
The only things I did differently..was use regular brown sugar and I used 1/2 balsamic vinegar..1/ 2 apple cider vinegar...so 1/4 1/4.
The jars are golden ..They bathed in boiling water after being filled for a full 30 minutes..I love hearing that vacuum seal pop when we opened our first jar.
Making things like this,fills my kitchen with business,gratitude for a bright functional kitchen and gratitude for being able to afford to buy things to cook with.
Most of all the ability to enjoy them also.
2 tsps olive oil
6 lbs of white onions
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 tsp salt
1/2 cup cider vinegar(See my notes above)
Peel and slice onions..I used a food processor..6 lbs is a lot of onions:)
Put all the ingredients in a big pot(there are a lot of slices)
Heat the olive oil,stir in all the ingredients
Cover and cook over medium heat until all the onions are tender and translucent
The recipe says ap 1 1/2 hrs..I used a big heavy Staub pot and the cooking time was reduced,
Stir every 15 minutes to assure even cooking of the onions.
Remove cover when done and increase heat to evaporate some of the liquid ap 3 minutes.
Put in your sterilized jars.Wipe rims,cover with sterilized lids.
Give them a rolling boil high heat water bath for 30 minutes.
Then enjoy looking at them:)
The onion and brown sugar marmalade will last up to one year~
