TOMATO BURGUNDY SOUP

Serves 6 as Appetizer.

From the Philadelphia Inquirer Food Section, many years ago !

We serve this from a pitcher, into small mugs or cups, to guests standing or sitting in the living room, patio or garden, before going in to a sit down dinner; informal and very convenient. Everyone will want more - resist their requests.One cup is enough as a first course--

  • 3-1/2 c tomato juice
  • 1 medium onion, peeled and chopped coarse
  • 2 stalks celery with leaves, chopped coarse
  • 1/4 tsp whole cloves
  • 1/2 bay leaf, crushed
  • 1-3/4 c beef broth, undiluted
  • 1 c burgundy

Put the tomato juice in a pot that will hold at least 2 quarts.

Tie the onion, celery, cloves and bay leaf in a piece of cheese cloth and add it to the tomato juice.

Cover and simmer for 30 minutes.

Remove from the heat and, when cool enough to handle, remove the cheesecloth bag and squeeze the juices back into the tomato juice. Discard the bag. Add the broth and bring it to a boil.

At this point the soup may be cooled, covered and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.

Just before serving add the Burgundy and 5 or 6 grinds of the pepper mill.

Reheat but do not boil the soup. Add salt to taste or more pepper, if desired.

Thinking of having this as a 1st course on an at-home New Year's Eve, just the two of us....followed by a cold seafood buffet (lobster, scallops, shrimp). What else to round out the night?

      Stuffed Zucchini flowers (Fiori di zucca farcito?)
      This is a quintessential summertime dish. You have to be able to acquire fresh zuke flowers, preferably from a grizzled Italian man from Calabria.
      1/2 c ricotta 1 egg ground pepper grated parmesan and pecarino romano Mix the ricotta with the egg well; then grind in some fresh pepper and then the grated cheese. The texture should not be too runny. Meanwhile, extract the stamins from the flowers --- this is probably not necessary but I do it -- the petal may break -- don't worry. Then, using a small spoon (like a 1/2 teaspoon), spoon the cheese and egg mixture into the flowers.
      You should also have a very fresh tomato sauce ready. Add a chiffonade of basil to it. Then, heat up a frying pan, add olive oil then fry the flowers. If you are ambitious, you could coat them in flour; most of the time I don't bother. Fry them until they turn lightly brown and then turn them. This takes no longer than 5 minutes. Serve with the aforementioned fresh tomato sauce.

      400g wide pasta/noodles, best to use one made with eggs 4 baking apples (600g-700g) (I use Gala, as I find Granny Smith to be a bit too tart here). Peeled and cut into strips 80g-100g raisins, or chopped dried apricots 70g (1/3 cup) sweet wine (or whatever not-tart wine you have on hand) 1-2 tablespoons butter 70g-80g toasted walnuts, roughly chopped 90g dark brown sugar 1.5 tablespoons cinnamon 2/3 teaspoon salt 5 eggs  
      In a large bowl, soak raisins in wine. Add butter (unmelted), walnuts, sugar, cinnamon and salt. Cook the noodles until al-dente. Drain well and mix the hot noodles in the bowl until coated with the butter and sugar. Let chill a little (so that the eggs won't cook), then add the eggs and apples. Mix well. Pour into a spring-form pan, or a casserole pan. Gently flatten making sure to push down any nuts you see, to prevent them from charring. Bake in a 190C hot oven, for 30 minutes or so. Remove from the oven, brush the top with butter (1-2 teaspoons). Optionally sprinkle some sugar on top for added crunch. Bake for 25-30 additional minutes, until the top is well browned and crisp. Serve immediately, or bake to re-crisp just before serving. Reheats well in an oven (or in a MW, but you'll lose the crispness).  
      I make it every year for nearly 10 years.

      This is a recipe Iv'e been making for years, at least once per summer.
      It's quick to make, and I often divide into two pans, and refrigerate them, to be baked as a quick weekday dinner.
       
      500g fusilli pasta 250g dry mozzarella cheese - diced (apx 1cm sized cubes) 40-100g cream (full fat, or a larger amount of half and half) - I usually go with 40g, but we tend to prefer things not overly rich 4 large tomatoes (or 6 medium ones), preferably drier varieties, such as Roma tomatoes - cut into stripes 8-9 minced garlic cloves - minced apx 35g basil - chopped + more for serving optional: 1-2 tsp nutritional yeast plenty of pepper salt to taste, 1-2 tsp (I'm a salt lover and often use 2, but it also depends on the saltiness of the cooking water)  
       
      Cook the pasta a little shy of al dente. Drain well, let cool a bit. Place in a large bowl, mix in remaining ingredients. Can be refrigerated at this point. Place the entire amount or half of it in a shallow casserole dish that will contain the pasta so that it is not too tall - you want plenty of surface area. Bake under a low broiler (~220-230 deg C) for apx. 40-50 minutes until the top browns very deeply and the pasta is very crisp. Scatter some more basil. Serve immediately.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      Hi, has anyone got a nice recipe for mango jelly using tinned mango puree (850g) and agar-agar powder (and possibly mango juice drink)?
