      Homemade Stem Ginger

        Carrying bottles of Stem Ginger home from Holland was a disaster waiting to happen for years. I finally decided to make it myself. I’m so glad I did because it’s so easy and few items are more useful to a gingerholic like me. I chop it finely and add it to everything: pancakes, créme anglaise, white chocolate anything, cheesecakes, pound cakes, cookies, pastry dough, yogurt, fruit salads, clafouti, panna cotta and lemon mousse. When selecting fresh ginger root, I always go for the largest pieces available with the smallest amount of tiny knobs and fingers. It makes peeling easier and reduces waste. If only we could grow it here. The syrup is great in drinks and salad dressings or drizzled over French vanilla ice cream. Finely minced stem ginger is amazing in desserts of all kinds, including those starring Strawberries, Pumpkins and Winter Squash. Caution: My homemade version always tastes more zesty and flavorful than the store bought jarred version.

    • Pumpkin Créme Caramel

      Pumpkin Créme Caramel

        There is nothing that I like more than to savor the goodness of homegrown vegetables and herbs through winter’s cold, dark months. Like serving my own pesto bubbling atop warm goat cheese with crackers. Or sneaking into the freezer for my choice of herbed butters. Or serving my Pumpkin Créme Caramel on Thanksgiving.

      Rosemary-Lemon Balm Cookies

        “At sixteen years old, growing herbs is a hobby of mine and I also love to bake. When I found a recipe for Rosemary Cookies in a magazine one day, I decided to try them. However, the recipe called for lemon zest and since I didn’t have a lemon, I decided to try fresh lemon balm instead. The cookies turned out wonderfully and everyone said that they tasted like they were fresh from the bakery.” We think so too, Alissa. Thank you!

    • Savory Watermelon Bites

      Savory Watermelon Bites

        When friends surprised us with a drop-by visit one scorching late summer afternoon, I whipped up these bites to have with drinks on our terrace. Inspired by Shelburne Farms's Watermelon, Tomato and Feta Salad, I did my own version of classic cantelope wrapped in prosciutto. It worked.
