Fresh Garden Tomato Sauce

13 September 2021

I’m showing you how to make a tomato sauce using fresh tomatoes. You’ll often hear me say in these videos that what we’re making is way better than what you can buy at the store and with this, not only is it better, but you literally can’t get this at a store! If you’ve never done this before, I think you’ll be surprised at how simple and easy it is-in fact, the hardest thing will be finding vine-ripened tomatoes.

Tangy Pineapple Marmalade

The horseradish adds a little tang to offset the sweetness. Stir into pulled pork, add a topping to grilled or roasted chicken, fish, or pork, or stir some into fried rice or BBQ sauce. The sky’s the limit on ways to serve this.

Ramp Sausage Gravy

7 May 2021

This recipe was contributed to Allrecipes by TV host, author, and recipe developer Chadwick Boyd:

Every spring, I go ramp hunting deep in the North Carolina mountains with my buddy Allan. The wild onions love to grow in large patches especially in ravines and around the base of shaded trees. They are more mellow in flavor than scallions, making them wonderful substitutes in scrambled eggs, salads, and pasta. Since their season is so short, between April and early May, I like to make a special version of my sausage gravy to serve with my tall, buttery, Greek yogurt biscuits. Serve spooned over freshly baked biscuits.

Buttermilk Sausage Gravy

24 November 2020

This is my husband’s recipe that was handed down to him by his grandmother. His grandmother stated that you must use Farmer John® sausage and bacon drippings or it would not taste as delicious as hers. It was never written down, just a pinch of this and a handful of that. I finally got him to measure everything and this is the result.

This gravy is a diner classic, often served over biscuits and sausage. But it’s equally good on fried chicken, pork chops, mashed potatoes, country fried steak, and french fries for a hearty meal any time of day.

Comeback Sauce

24 September 2020

Creamy, savory, tangy, and sweet Southern-style sauce and dip that originated in a Greek restaurant in Mississippi. It’s delicious on french fries, chicken tenders, onion rings, shrimp, crab, fish tacos, etc., or also as a salad dressing. Similar to a Louisiana remoulade, it’s good on just about anything fried and is popular throughout the South. Keep stored in the refrigerator for about 1 week.

Japanese Pickled Watermelon Rind

17 July 2020

My Okinawan grandmother and mother have made pickled watermelon rind for as long as I can remember. I’ve continued the tradition with this quick recipe. It’s a form of “tsukemono,” or Japanese pickles. My siblings and I have always been taught that we should use as much of a fruit or vegetable as possible, and then compost the rest. Per my “obaasan,” or grandmother, the rind is good for you and helps your blood flow throughout your body. You can definitely find this tsukemono in all of our fridges in summer when watermelon is plentiful. Serve as a garnish, or as a side to rice.
