  2. if your going to buy jarred or canned truffles ,,,also get truffle juice. combine them,,,freeze them in small batches and your all set. use the in sauces for meat or fish and also make vineaigrettes.

  3. i,ve made it a few times,,,,its pretty easy to make but messy! its a mixture of pigs blood,,,diced sweet fat,,diced onions,,diced apples,,salt pepper and nutmeg. the mixture is warmed and funneled into pork casings and poached. then classically it is sauted and garnished with potatoe puree and carmelized apples. yumm!

  4. let me share a great sauce for confit warm with a salad and good bread:

    carmelize a few small onions slowly and put in blender with a touch of sriracha sauce and about a cup of saba,,,blend until smooth and drizzle aroundyour wilted salad and warmed confit. if your not familar with sabe its the unfermented grape juice that they use to make balsalmic vinegar. they cook it down and sell it as saba. it has a sweet,,pruny flavor. enjoy! p.s.,,,hi paula!

  5. yes there will be alot of carryover so cook it to about 145-150 and let rest a half hour before cutting. also when cutting most of the meat is on the legs. also when i cooked them i allways make a few sauces with them. the pork will need it because the pork is really steaming under the skin so the flavor is a bit different than a roast. mustard sauce is great and a fruit sauce is another option. good luck! wish i was there to get some of that crunchy skin! mmmmmmmm! :laugh:

  6. i like to just use it to finish a dish. sprinkle over a light fish dish,,a salad,,,a nice pasta or rice dish. i you cook it you will lose some of its flavor. enjoy!

  7. i blanch butter lettuce for one second,,,shock in ice water,,,then dry between towels. put a dab of basil aioli on open lettuce leaf then crispy bacon then oven dried tomatoes and wrap in a tight bundle. pass around and enjoyyyyyy!

  8. i made a mixture of creme fraiche and red onions for a soup garnish and its soooo good as a dip also! just mix almost equal parts creme and fine diced red onions,,,salt,,touch of mustard and horseradish.. mmmmmmmmmmm,,,bring on the chips! :blink:

  9. wish i was going again! anyways,,,,if you have time for a day trip try stonington island. its about and hours drive from ellsworth. its a small fishing village with a couple of little restaurants. i forget the name of the restaurant but theres only a couple in town so either one is nice and its a really beautiful area. enjoy! :wink:
