This is a nice winter dish, best made on a day that you’re at home for a long afternoon. We always use Misty Knoll wings as they’re a humane, free range farm. Cooking times vary, and you can change the cooking liquid to accommodate your tastes.
Start with 2 packages of wings (generally 2-3 pounds).
Sprinkle with salt, pepper, garlic powder and a little olive oil.
In Vermont, it can be hard to find good fish. I love salmon but I try to steer away from huge cuts of farm raised fish which are often fed dye to create the bright pink flesh. However, when I do come across something wild caught or farm raised without coloring, I pounce! Salmon and maple are a natural combination and I have yet to serve this simple dish without pleasing everyone at the table.
Winters are long and cold in Vermont, so we look for lots of comfort foods to help us through. This slow cooker recipe is perfect for a cozy Sunday. We often spend the day skiing and then load up on pulled pork in the evening. We are then well prepared for the week ahead!
Use 2 pounds of pork shoulder. In a small bowl, combine 1 tablespoon each:salt, ground pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder. Rub all over the pork shoulder and let it sit while you prepare everything else.
Whisk together ⅓ cup maple syrup and ⅓ apple cider vinegar. Slice an onion and lay it on the bottom of your crockpot.
Place pork on top of onion and pour maple/vinegar mixture over it. Cook on low for 8 hours and then shred with a fork. Serve on buns or over vegetables. Enjoy!
This ice cream has been a huge crowd pleaser! When I was a kid, we always used a hand crank ice cream maker. We poured layers of ice and salt around a metal container and as the cranking got harder, one of us kids would stand on top as my dad turned the arm around and around. Recently I ordered an electric ice cream maker and while we miss out on the summer ritual of the drippy,
When the 5th graders at the Sustainability Academy needed a vessel for their maple ice cream, we thought about buying cones. This idea was quickly struck down as traditional ice cream cones are made with white sugar. After weeks of researching the added health, environmental and local benefits of using maple sugar, we knew we needed to get creative and make our own. My mother’s pizzelle iron made adorable little waffles which we shaped into bowls using a muffin tin.
These cookies are a perfect balance of gooey chocolate, with a hint of maple. Adding walnuts creates an other worldly flavor! Using maple sugar instead of white sugar adds a myriad of health benefits including minerals and vitamins. Perhaps maple sugar’s most impressive quality is its lower glycemic index. This means that blood sugar will rise more slowly when consuming maple sugar versus white sugar.
Most cookie recipes encourage a 2 bowl operation where the liquids and solids are combined separately and then folded together.
