Parsley Salad

 

 

This salad is typically served, English style, with Roasted Marrow Bones and rustic bread.

Parsley mixed with the pale green leaves from celery hearts and peppery wild arugula cuts through the richness of the marrow. Be sure to use flat-leaf parsley. If the leaves are big, tear them into smaller pieces. Dress the salad just before serving, and be sparing with the salt because of the fleur de sel that will top the marrow.

Roasted Pumpkin


  • Author: Jill Baker

Description

What is important here is the pumpkin. It’s preferred that a blue pumpkin (Hubbard) or Jarrahdale–a pale blue-skinned, very hard-fleshed pumpkin is used. Butternut squash is a good substitute.


Ingredients

Hubbard Pumpkin

Jarrahdale Pumpkin

Butternut Squash

Extra-Virgin Olive Oil


Instructions

Simply cut it in half and scoop out the seeds (save, wash and roast separate later for a yummy snack), then cut into 3/4-inch crescent moons.

Place pieces on a lined baking sheet skin side down, drizzle with extra-virgin olive oil, and season with salt and pepper.

Roast in a 400° F oven for 20-25 minutes, basting occasionally. Check with knife for softness and remove from the oven.

Eat as is, use in soups, or even add it to your mashed parsnips (see recipe here)

Turnip Bake


  • Author: Jill Baker

Description

This is a simply yet delicious way to use up those turnips! It’s layered like a gratin yet has minimal ingredients.

Don’t throw out the greens either! They go great in your wild foraged greens salad!


Ingredients

Units Scale

1 Onion, peeled and sliced very thin (a mandolin works great here)

1 3/4 Sticks (14 Tbsp.) Unsalted Butter

2 1/22 3/4 lbs. Turnips, peeled and sliced very thin (mandolin works great here)

Sea Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper


Instructions

In a pan sweat the onion in 11 Tbsp. butter until they are soft, sweet, and clear. Set aside.

Smear remaining butter over a deep ovenproof fry pan (a seasoned cast iron is preferred). Add in a layer of the thinly sliced turnips and top with some of the buttery onion mixture, sea salt and pepper.

Continue the process of layering turnip with onion and seasoning until all ingredients are used up.

Cover with foil (shiny side down).

Place into a preheated 375° F oven for approx. and hour. Check for doneness using a knife inserted into the center.

Remove from the oven, remove the foil, and allow to rest for 5 minutes.

To serve, flip pan upside down onto a platter (one large enough that covers the pan) taking care to not burn yourself. The turnips should be browned but not crispy.

Notes

This dish is another that does well with added fresh herbs or other root vegetables used. Perhaps serve with some chive-infused sour cream! Heck, we’d even add in some bacon for a hearty one dish meal!
