Slow Roasted Candied Tomatoes

This Solo Roasted Candied Tomatoes recipe is as simple as cutting the tomatoes in half and drizzling with olive oil, a titch of sugar, salt, pepper and thyme. Into the oven for 90 minutes and done!

 

Simply put your tomatoes in a jar, cover with oil and seal tightly.  They will last up to a week in the fridge. I loved these little morsels and was happy to find yet another way to cook tomatoes.  Roasting brings out the rich flavours in tomatoes and the time is worthwhile.  Click here for the recipe.

Sweet Hot Coriander Salmon with Strawberry Tomato Salad

A simple rub for this Sweet Hot Coriander Salmon and Strawberry Tomato Salad and it’s ready for the grill. The salad is a simple as chopping and tossing. some fruits and veggies.

Now the ingredients are a little quirky but when I saw a recipe online for coriander roasted strawberries I knew this would work with my favorite fish as well. I’m here to testify that they are a fantastic combination and I loved it!  You have to know by know that I’m usually going to throw some kind of twist to the recipe, right?  The kitchen is meant to be fun!

You can grill this or pan fry and toss it in the oven. I’ve included both instruction and it will give you melt-in-your mouth deliciousness. You’ll want to use a good pan, preferably cast-iron. I have regular cast iron as well as  enamel-coated cast iron pans that I use for almost everything.  You’re going to sear it briefly on high heat then pop it into the oven for a few minutes and presto – dinner is served!

Keyword: grilled salmon
Servings: 4
Calories: 104kcal

Ingredients

  • SALMON
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 5 ounce pieces of wild salmon
  • 1.5 teaspoons coriander
  • 1.5 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1.5 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1.5 teaspoons Sriracha sauce
  • pinch of sea salt
  • STRAWBERRY SALAD
  • 1,5 cups fresh strawberries, hulled and chopped in half
  • 1/2 pound assorted small heirloom, cherry and grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1/3 cup fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tbsp fresh oregano, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon loosely packed lemon zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Instructions

  • SALMON
  • Preheat oven to 400F
    Combine coriander, brown sugar, chili powder, Sriracha sauce in a small bowl. Season with salt. Pat salmon dry and rub mixture into both sides of fish, including skin. Let sit for 15 minutes. In the meantime make the salad.

  • OVEN METHOD
  • Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large non-stick ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat until nearly smoking. Sear salmon fillets skin-side up 2 minutes. Flip, then transfer skillet to oven and cook 7-10 minutes more or until salmon is just cooked through. (depending on thickness) Be careful not to overcook. Mine took 7 minutes and my oven tends to run hot.

  • GRILLING METHOD
  • Place the salmon, skin-side-down, on the grill and cover. Cook, undisturbed, until the salmon just starts to release its fat (opaque mayonnaise-like stuff) and/or the flesh flakes easily, 10 to 15 minutes for most 1 inch thick fillets. Allow another 10 minutes for each extra inch of thickness.

  • Good salmon is expensive so if unsure, use a thermometer. It makes life so much easier!

  • SALAD
  • Combine all ingredients and serve in bowl or arrange on platter leaving room in center for salmon. Make this first because the salmon is going to require your attention.

Tomato, Artichoke and Olive Salad

I keep a jar of marinated artichokes in the pantry because I love munching on them. A 1/2 cup serving of marinated artichokes contains 110 calories. One serving of marinated artichokes contributes 5 grams of carbohydrates, including 2 grams of dietary fiber. It is also a great source of Vitamin C which is so important for your immune system.

You really do need your fresh parsley in this recipe otherwise you’ll be disappointed in the taste. This is not me nagging this time – this is vital to the recipe, ha! Cheers!

5 Ways to Preserve your Local Ontario Produce

Preserving fresh fruits

Many of us are doing our best to eat local Ontario produce, but one of the major difficulties in the Canadian climate is how to continue this throughout the year. Whether you’re buying your fruits and vegetables from farmers markets in Ontario or you’re growing your own, preserving the nutrient-rich produce is a concern. Try your hand at food preserving this year, and read on to find out our top five ways to preserve your food.

Fresh Food Storage

The easiest way to store you local produce is by fresh storage. All that this straightforward option requires is a cool, dark space such as a root cellar, basement or garage. Produce such as onions, garlic, root vegetables and apples last a long time in conditions like this.

Fridge Food Storage

Using your fridge is a similar storage option to fresh storage, but the temperature and moisture levels are lowered. Food items like carrots and beets do very well in this manner of storage. You can place them into large freezer bags and eat them as you need.

Freezer Food Storage

Freezing your local produce is a great option that will preserve the closest flavour and texture to fresh. If you are planning on using this option often, it is recommended that you use a chest freezer because it doesn’t have the usual defrost cycle of a kitchen freezer.

Some vegetables will require you to blanched or steamed first to stop the enzyme action (which will cause loss of flavour, colour and nutrients), but others can be stored raw. Foods such as peppers and kale store great in freezer bags or containers.

Pickling or Fermentation Storage

This is a little more of an involved storage option, but one that can help foods last for over a year in fridge storage. Fermented foods retain a lot of their nutrients in storage, more than canned foods, and has the added benefit of bacteria that is excellent for your gut health. Pickling options that work the best are cabbage, onions, carrots, eggs, and cucumbers.  

Canning Storage

The final, but most complex storage option is canning. Using a large stockpot with a lid you’ll cover your jars with water to sterilize them. You can use this method to preserve your fermented foods longer, as well as jams and jellies, or tomatoes. You can use a pressure canner for lower acid foods such as carrots, beans, sauces, broths and soups but you will need to purchase one specifically for this.

Local Produce is the Best Reward

Keeping your fresh foods as delicious as the day you brought them doesn’t have to be a difficult as you might think. Choosing which storage option appeals to you most can make this process easier and thus more likely for you to continue. Being able to eat your home grown foods in the depths of winter will be a satisfying reward for your hard work. We’re looking forward to seeing you back on the farm in the spring.

Cheesy Oven Roasted Tomatoes

Just a quick turn in the oven gives these cheesy roasted tomatoes good caramelization, allowing the natural sweetness to blend with the hearty flavors of this delicious summer farm fresh produce.
Cheesy Roasted Tomatoes - Barrie Hill Farms
I seem to always have the problem of too many tomatoes or not enough.  This week I had too many and had to cook some up before they went bad.  I’ve roasted cherry and grape tomatoes but never large ones.  I was tempted by my favourite flavours of tomato, cheese and basil and had just enough of each ingredient to roast
Goat cheese, parmesan or mozzarella will give you terrific flavours.  These would be great as an addition to a BBQ’d meal or with some couscous or freekah.
I made a dressing of garlic, lemon juice, olive oil and fresh basil and just drizzled it over the tomatoes when they were done.  The calorie count is low in this meal so you can treat yourself to some garlic bread to soak up the tomato juices.  Roasting is a great way to coax concentrated flavours from less than pristine tomatoes.  The flavours were a taste bud sensation! My new favourite dish. Cheers!
