Yard Fresh Pt. 18

January 9th, 2012

My first and favorite thing that I've cooked in a slow cooker. Posole makes me happy.

I started making posole a couple years ago when I bought my first slow cooker and now when the cold sets in I always get a craving for it. It’s a deeply warming soup with a good amount of spice, slow cooked pork and hominy but there’s also the fresh aspect — similar to pho — of adding raw ingredients before/while eating it.

We just got back from a vacation to my hometown Cincinnati where we ate and cooked a lot of good food so I think I’ll post about that soon. For now, here’s what we’ve been enjoying at home this winter in Portland. Hope you’ve been eating and drinking well too…

Some of my favorite posole fixings...

Breakfast doesn't get much better than this -- sunny side up over chanterelle risotto.

Late night snack -- cheddar/paprika/onion cheese breads and Fuji apple.

Brussels sprout bacon and miso butter spaghetti with toasted hazelnuts and pecorino. Will be repeating.

The last of the sweet Nantes carrot harvest from the backyard...

And the Belize-style hot sauce that I made with a lot of them. One of my favorites.

Caramelized onion and jalapeno spaghetti with hazelnuts and a lime radish salad.

    Any chance you would post your recipe for the Belize-style hot sauce? 🙂

    Hi Kaity! If it were mine I would but it’s Dave DeWitt’s from his 1999 book The Chile Pepper Encyclopedia. The recipe is on page 159. If you love chile peppers and hot sauces it’s a great book http://www.powells.com/biblio/1-9780688156114-4. Thanks for chiming in.
