    As requested lol

    https://food52.com/recipes/76077-new-zealand-style-beef-cheddar-pies

    I added roughly chopped crimini mushrooms.  For the cheese I used jalapeño jack and aged white cheddar.

    Yes, recipe please! Hopefully it’s simple and the dough doesn’t need to homemade. 
    No worries.  Frozen puff pastry is the way to go.  I used tenderflake.

    New Zealand has a lot of things going for it, but meat pies might be the best. Recipe!
    I could not agree more!

    Yeah, those are all frozen.  I spent most of yesterday prepping and getting started on syrup and jam.I only got through the black raspberries on the right, which have to be strained, and then a bag and a half of the blues. Still 3 and a half bags to work through, doubt I'll get them all jammed today.  That's fine though, I will have a year's worth and some gift jars laid up by the end of the day, and sometime this winter I can work on the rest.

    I hope you saved some to make some pies. Warm blueberry pie ala mode with the melting vanilla ice cream on top - the best 😋

    Yes, water bath canned.  I have pressure canned with my mom in the past, but I need a new o-ring and regulator so I haven't pressure canned from my own garden yet.   Might ask for a nice electric canner for Christmas though...

    Not quite a Cliffy kind of feast but a lil Seafood Sunday at the Juggler Homestead today. Scallops are fresh caught off the Delaware coast. My parents brought them up. 

    The tomatoes are from my backyard.

    Scallops, shrimp, orzo. Yes, yes, and yes. Enjoy. I had leftover Cobb salad for dinner so I am a bit envious of you right now. Tomatoes also look yummy.

    Didn't have time or gumption to take photos with good lighting and composition, but here's some blueberry jam. 9.5 pints, enough for the year to come.  I also made 2.5 quarts of black raspberry syrup that isn't pictured, and is fantastic. 
    Don't judge my shitty little messy kitchen lol  
    We are poor and I do this all myself so it's hard to keep up 🤣

    Whipping up some sloppy joes from the garden maters right now.  This time of year that food mill stays in the dish strainer on the counter and gets a good bit of use.
    Monkey Driven, Call this Living?
  • @rgambs cool, do you wanna share the recipe? We have shit loads of blackberries picked from the garden.
  • rgambsrgambs Posts: 13,197
    Well for the syrup it's just 1 cup sugar to one cup juice, simmer it down to desired thickness, 3-10 minutes.  How you get from fruit to juice is the trick, I use an old-fashioned food mill, but you can cook down and strain through cheesecloth.
    For the jam, which is technically a preserves recipe, I used a recipe that was 5lbs berries to 3lbs sugar, 20 minute rapid boil. 
    I would look on the website for Kerr or Ball for tested and proven blackberry recipes.  Too many seeds for my taste as a jam or preserve, so I strain and make jelly or syrup.  The syrup is going very fast...waffles, ice cream, milkshakes, raspberry vinaigrette...

    No judgment here. I don't have a fancy kitchen either, but great things happen in there. Stuff looks fabulous! Canning is a labor of love. Thank you for sharing that labor of love with us.

     My grandfather actually invented the Cobb Salad. He was a chef and he worked all over and there was a time he was at the Drake Hotel working in Chicago and he would experiment with different combinations

    No time for judgement here.  I’m too busy admiring all the love and labour that you put into gardening, harvesting and cooking / baking / preserving what you’ve grown.  It’s amazing.  I’m craving blueberry jelly right now lol  Thanks  ;)=)

    I do love a good Cobb salad. It's my favorite type of an officially named salad. In my opinion it hands down beats the Waldorf, Caeser, or Chef.

    I see what you did there :rofl:

    The origin of the Cobb salad was the subject of a debate featured in Episode 3 of Season 2 of Curb Your Enthusiasm.[7]
