Oops!  I read sausage rolls and now I see sausage balls. Carry-on.

 

Heavens NO they ain't sausage rolls.  They have CHEESE in them.

 I know. I know. That’s where my dander went right up.  No pastry AND CHEESE! What is this world coming to?   But so long as they’re only sausage balls....

I thought of you, @Anna N, and your potential reaction to the cheese when I wrote this and should have included a sausage roll disclaimer xD.

No, sausage rolls, they are not.

Still tasty, though!

I will confess to being somewhat ashamed Saturday morning when I made Little Smokies in crescent roll dough (hey, for canned stuff, it ain't bad) for the kids. I knew Anna would frown at me.

Nothing wrong with “little Smokies in crescent roll dough” compare with “sausage rolls” — see the difference?xD

I posted this meal over in the schnitzel topic but since two of the dishes are from Deep Run Roots, I thought I'd add it here as well.

Vivian serves these two sides,  Apple Mustard and Charred Cabbage Apple Slaw p 503 with whole trout.  Recipe are available online at this link. I had some whole fish caught by friends that I planned to use here but I decided they would be better companions to some pork.  They'd also be good with chicken.

The Apple Mustard is a kicked up apple butter.  I posted about it above as Vivian also recommends it as a condiment with the sausage balls.   I highly recommend it. The recipe calls for a modest amount of dijon mustard.  I might up that or add some dry mustard to increase  the mustard flavor but it's very nice as is.

I'm glad I tried the charred cabbage slaw. It's got an interesting mix of flavors and textures.  The the charred edges are pleasantly sweet and the rest of the cabbage is partially cooked but not completely tender.  That's going to vary depending on how hot your pan is (she says "medium high") and how thick the wedges are.  The red onions are lightly pickled in a mix of apple cider vinegar and honey that dresses the salad at the end.  I'm not sure I'd make it again - certainly not for a crowd as it's a bit of a nuisance to char all that cabbage - and I don't think it looks all that attractive.  Still, it was a good side dish for the pork.

While putting up some sweet corn from the garden I was toying with using the cobs for something.  @rotuts and @ElsieD both suggested a broth--rotuts reminded me of Vivian's Corn Stock located on pg. 232 of the cookbook.

 

Using some of the inner husks would have never occurred to me.  I didn't use any salt or anything to season it--I'll do that when I thaw it out and use it.  It's very corny and good though :)

Good plan :)  I don't have my own frozen peas, but I do have some and always do.  I didn't reduce it much--the pic I showed wasn't half of what I have.

Last night I made two of Vivian's recipes:

 

Everyday Cucumbers found on pg. 246

 

This really shouldn't even count lol.  I make these all the time--long before I ever got her book.  I highly recommend this.  I keep them in the fridge all summer long and just add to it.

 

IMG_4899.JPG.9a2db3e705d1b388d1e1f24c1efa9fbf.JPG

 

Then, having just cut a bunch of corn off of the cob to freeze, I decided to make the

 

Summer Vegetable Scallion Pancakes found on pg. 406

 

Again, we really really liked these.  I've made zucchini fritters before--but these go another level up.  The "goo" from the okra really does hold it all together--not slimy at all once they are fried.  I did add a bit of ground black pepper.

 

The batter

 You bite into one and immediately get a burst of fresh, sweet corn that is nicely balanced by the onion and the dash of hot sauce.  They are also good right after coming in from the garden, straight out of the fridge.

re charred cabbage-

 

Tasty stuff.. sweet and nutty flavor.

 

I make mine on a sheet pan at 400F. Turn once to char  caramelize both sides.

 

Smaller cabbage wedges work better because there is a lower % stem in them. Just cut out the wedge of stem. And maybe peel off the outer leaf after cooking.

You REALLY need to.  Especially in summer when the veggies are so good.  

 

Well,  I appreciate that...if you come then we are both going to get right back in the car and go to @blue_dolphin 's house--her cooking always makes me drool

@Shelby those zucchini fritters look delicious. Do you think they would still be good without the corn? I'm not sure that we are getting good corn yet but I have plenty of zucchini's and I think I can find okra.

I think they would still work.  I make a zucchini fritter that has feta cheese in it and was thinking about mixing in the chopped okra.

That's a great idea!  I've never made corn stock, but I use the denuded cobs to flavor the liquid in my corn chowder.  It is amazing how much flavor that adds.  I would freeze all our leftover cobs all summer, but they are gnawed on and I don't think anyone would appreciate gnawed cob stock.

So when you make stock from a turkey or chicken carcass do you save any of the bones that were gnawed on like wings or leg bones? Just asking.

I wasn't thinking of those obsessive folks who bite through poultry bones and suck out the marrow, but the bones that are left after most people simply eat the meat off them have plenty of stuff left to contribute to a stock pot.
