@Thomas,
I really like fish, simply grilled or pan-fried, with parsley or a parsley sauce.

But I don't always have fresh fish around, and I'm not in the mood to go out and get it soooooooooo it's tuna and parsley

so I wondered what tuna and parsley would pull up at google

I grow my own parlsey, and have always used the flat leaf.

the gal I talk to at the plant place (it's in a parking lot) talked me into getting some curly leaf.

she said that the butterflies use it to reproduce. haven't tried any of it yet, but it is ready to be eaten.

anybody know what to do with catmint? (besides the cat thing)

@Rockhead,
No, RH, right now my keen interest is to keep it watered enough.

Hang on, let me check a book or two..
Nope, no mention of culinary use. But, maybe those are just the wrong books.
Google?

Aha, it's used as a tea -
Catnip Tea
Most people are unaware of the benefits of catnip tea. Here are a few benefits and side-effects of drinking catnip tea. You also learn to make catnip tea at ...
catniptea.org/

Aaack, same species as catnip, but not the exact variety of Nepeta. So, I still don't know.

Looked again, got this -
http://www.ageless.co.za/catmint.htm

but that's not the same latin name I saw in Sunset....
I just double checked in Sunset Western Gardens - it does distinguish Catmint (N. faassenii) from Catnip (N. cataria)

I'm rushing to beat the hamsters..

@ehBeth,
That recipe turned out really well. For my first time cooking lamb, I was pleased. I like Emeril Lagasse.

Thanks for the recipes Butrflynet. You were there when I needed them and it worked great.

My favourite : Chocolate Mousse Cake

Melt 400 gram dark chocolate with 300 gram butter au bain marie, let it cool down

Split 10 eggs
Whip eggwhites stiff
Whip yolks with 225 grams sugar and 4 spoons of cacao (chocolate powder)

Mix egg/sugar with the choclate/butter
Spoon through the eggwhites

Bake for 25 minutes, on 180 *C

Take out of the oven and press the cake with bakingpaper, a plate and a weight in the middle. After it cools down U can put a topping of cream with some lime or lemon...

Black-eyed Peas --

I have several bags of black-eyes peas (BePs) in the freezer that need to be used up soon. It is too hot to make the typical Hoppin John/New Year's dish. Am looking for some cold dish recipes for them. I found one for a Greek Orzo and BePs salad that sounds like something I'll try. Any other suggestions?

Here's the Greek Salad recipe:



* 3/4 cup orzo
* 1 (15-ounce) can black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
* 1 large tomato, diced (1 cup)
* 2 tablespoons chopped flat-leaf parsley
* 2 tablespoons red-wine vinegar
* 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
* 1/2 seedless cucumber, halved lengthwise, cored, and diced (1 cup)
* 1/2 cup pitted Kalamata olives, slivered
* 1/3 cup thinly sliced red onion
* 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
* 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
* 1 tablespoon finely chopped oregano
* 2 to 3 cups coarsely chopped romaine
* 1/2 pound feta, crumbled (1 cup)
* 4 to 8 peperoncini (Had to look this up - it is an Italian sweet pepper the size of a jalapeno)


* Equipment: 4 (16-ounce) wide jars or containers with lids
* Accompaniment: pita chips

Preparation:



Cook orzo according to package instructions. Drain in a sieve and rinse under cold water until cool. Drain well.

Toss black-eyed peas, tomato, and parsley with vinegar, 1 tablespoon oil, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Marinate, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss together orzo, remaining tablespoon oil, cucumber, olives, onion, lemon zest and juice, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a large bowl.

Divide black-eyed-pea mixture (with juices) among jars and layer orzo salad, romaine, and feta on top. Add 1 or 2 peperoncini to each jar.

-----------------------------------------------

It doesn't say anything about processing the jars. I wonder if the quality would remain if I were to put it in freezer containers and freeze the extras rather than jar them.

@Butrflynet,
Sounds good, butrflynet.
Black-eyed peas are my favourite "bean". (You know what I mean.)
I like the the idea of combining them with parsley & lemon juice, especially.
Oh & the feta, too!
AND the sweet pepper! Smile

Yum!
I think I might give this a go.

Just come in from a bit of gardening & now I have a question ..

If you had a bumper crop of mandarins (as I do at the moment) what interesting & delicious things would you do with them?

I have given lots away to friends. I have eaten plenty of them myself...

Any recipe ideas would be much appreciated. They don't necessarily have to be dessert recipes, either. (In fact, I'm more interested in main course recipes, not having all that much of a sweet tooth ...)

Thanks.
Thomas

@msolga,
My first impulse is to make whatever I would make with oranges. So how about mandarin marmelade? Mandarin liqueur?

@Thomas,
Good ideas, Thomas.

You know, I've never made either of those before.

I may do some serious internet investigating!

They are just fabulous fresh, picked straight from the tree, though!

I wish I could give some to you guys to try. Smile

@msolga,
You could run them through a juicer and then make a reduction sauce with the juice. That'd be great spread on some fresh asparagus.

I've made something similar using orange juice. Just saute a couple tablespoons of minced onions and a clove of minced garlic, add a cup of orange juice, a few red pepper flakes and a tablespoon of honey. Bring to a boil, lower heat and reduce to half the amount. Let cool a bit then run it through a blender to get all the goodness from the veggies. Strain out the large bits and store in the fridge.

If you want to make something fancy, you could spread some sauce on puff pastry, add some thinly sliced ham, a few spears of asparagus and parmesan cheese. Fold over as if you were making a popover and seal the edges, brush with egg whites and bake.

Then there's carrot orange soup.. I suppose mandarins would work with that -

@msolga,
If you're not averse to poultry, I've always thought Asian dishes -- Mandarin/Sesame/Chicken, etc. are super delicious. Tons of recipes on the 'net.

If you're a vegetarian, an Asian Mandarin/Sesame salad dressing would be a good use for them. Yum (making myself hungry here LOL).
