You may notice that I said sweet potato. As in one. One sweet potato. Hmmmm. And the saute mix? It's "baby cooking greens that have a wonderful flavor raw." That's from the newsletter. Does anyone else see the irony in cooking greens that are wonderful raw? Good. It's not just me.
I actually used five, count 'em, five things from my bag today. I made radish pickles from a recipe in the newsletter. I'll tell you how they turn out tomorrow. They're supposed to sit for 24 hours before eating. The vinegar did turn a lovely shade of pink already, though. (Updated to add a photo and the decision that radish pickles are good! Tangy and crunchy and yum!)
Dinner tonight was a salad made of the saute mix. And they were pretty good raw. I made a saute of the criminis and some onions. Served that over flank steak. I made a mash of the sweet potato and the sunchokes. Normally, I love mashed sweet potatoes. I microwave them until they are soft, mash up the insides in a bowl, add salt, pepper, butter, and maple sugar. And then eat until I am full. The sunchokes didn't really add much. They contributed an earthy flavor that didn't compliment the sweet potato. Oh well. Live and learn.
I made, for the first time, homemade biscuits tonight. I was surprised at how easily they came together. They were very good tasting as well. They were, perhaps, a little heavy. I think with experience, I'll be able to use a lighter hand with them.
My TWD baking is complete. I'll have full details tomorrow!
