WINTER FOOD

We all know that I am not a real cook but every once in a while I get a burst of cooking desire and I am having one now. My slow cooker is an indispensable winter tool; I've been stocking up on Chicken Marbella (that old Silver Palette classic) and Osso Buco. There's a wonderful butcher near me in my new neighborhood, Harlem Shambles, so once in a while I shamble over and learn about a new cut of meat. I know next to nothing about where things come from and feel I should face it if I am going to eat it--though I don't eat it that often. The butchers are quite generous cooking tips as well. Harlem Shambles has become my source for fresh farm eggs.


But the main thing about my cooking style is that I am inordinately lazy (hence the Braise Craze: drop it all in, cover, turn on heat, leave, return, eventually eat.) In the winter I make vast jars of what my children used to call Fruit Compost, delicious with granola or yogurt or both of course. What isn't better with muchness and more? I layer all kinds of dried fruit, slices of lemon, orange and grapefruit, a stick of cinnamon, and pour on boiling water (after I've made my tea of course) and let the whole thing sit for days and days. It all gets better with time. The best things do.

I thought I spied a fig and a lemon. Wonder what the concoction would taste like if you poured in a bottle of vodka, let it sit for a time and drank it as a cordial or digestive?

Funny that you would mention those farm eggs, I had been wondering where you would get them in the city. "Fruit compost" those kids.....

Harlem Shambles definitely on my list for next Saturday. Have you had one of their meat pies?

What is it about winter that gets us to pull out the slow cooker and make enough food for 20 people?? I have been cooking too, barbecued pork, chili, pot roast, all in the slow cooker. Thursday with the storm bearing down on us, just off the plane from a island vacation, I stopped on my way home and bought a turkey, and all the fixings.
I started cooking on Saturday morning, the winds and snow blowing so hard, with mini tornadoes all over the landscape. Two hours later the power went out, and never came back until today at 4 pm. I had to throw out the turkey as the refrigeration was too warm! I ended up eating peanut butter sandwiches, and making a late afternoon trip to the trash bin with a whole refrigerator worth of spoiled or questionable food!
