Skirt Steak with The Apple Gin

Apples and beef are pretty much what autumn is all about, and after a long week and day of work, a long-winded meal was not going to really fly for the evening.  This is when tasty ingredients and simple salt and pepper seasoning come into play.  I reached for a skirt steak from Natural Homestead Beef and the salt and pepper with a little sprinkling of walnut oil and threw it on the grill.  I put that alongside some arugula with some dressing, as well as some sweet corn from Munson Farms and all was good and delicious. To match that we made a quick little gin drink with some items from the bar that we’re calling The Apple Gin.

Passion Fruit Margarita

After a week of cooking and a long day at work we found ourselves with a number of leftovers— high quality leftovers in the beautiful slow cooked ham with cider, cloves, apples and spring onions.  While the food was perfectly fall, we decided to treat ourselves to a little tropical excursion with a Passion Fruit Margarita made with all fresh ingredients and something kinda yummy. While we were eating leftovers as our main course, we did manage to incorporate some new foods as we whipped out some homemade crackers we got at the last food swap, some fresh cheese and home-cured bresaola.  You can learn more about my meat curing over at Eat the Pig if you’d like …

Slow Cooked Ham with Whiskey Sours

Slow Cooked Ham

Today we made a delicious slow cooked ham in the crockpot braised for approximately 8 hours. The ham was cooked with apples, onions, rosemary, honey and a mixture of chicken broth and cider as a braising liquid. The finished product was absolutely delicious being fall off the bone tender, a nice blend of salty and sweet.

The final product was shredded and served over rice with the onions and apples as accompaniments, and covered with a couple of ladles of broth over top of it. It was topped with some alder smoked salt to finish it off. All in all one hell of a meal.
