Potatoes & Sweet Potatoes Pan Fried

Spring and summer may have been late in coming this year but that means good news for farm goers this fall. Berries are still plentiful, apples are in good supply and the new potatoes are scrumptious!

I think what I love most about potatoes is their versatility. They are great in salads, as a side dish and there are so many delicious and diverse ways to prepare them. Combining them with sweet potatoes is now one of my favorite!

Potatoes Provide Important Nutrients!

  • Just 110 calories.
  • No fat, sodium or cholesterol.
  • Nearly half your daily value of vitamin C.

This easy dish comes together in just 30 minutes and is great for breakfast, lunch, dinner or a snack. The addition of chipotle offers a mild but earthy taste that it is a perfect complement to the potatoes.

Rhubarb Chutney

Don’t we all love strawberry/rhubarb pie? Of course we do – it’s delicious! But other than pie, do you use rhubarb in any of your dishes? I thought not! Today we’re going to fix that and I guarantee this rhubarb chutney will change your life!

Rhubarb Chutney

I used fresh picked rhubarb from Barrie Hill Farms with garlic, onion, golden raisins, white wine, honey and ginger. I bet you started drooling just reading those ingredients!

 

You can serve this on crusty bread with a sharp cheese.  I used Temiskaming cheese. If you don’t have access to this cheese, a sharp white cheddar or goat cheese will be perfect. This would also go well on chicken or pork and can be served hot or cold.  It is an easy dish to prepare and takes no time at all. There’s a fair bit of honey in this recipe but it’s needed to balance out all the flavours.
