Member recipes including Quince butter, grapefruit and apple ideas

This week I have heard wonderful recipes from members in email, on the blog and at the distribution.  I even ran into Basia at the coffee shop and discussed her delicious applesauce cake recipe.  I made it this week and added dates as well as the raisins. See her recipe posted last week.  

Keep the recipes, food storage tips and cooking information coming.  I review the blog statistics each week and find most of the items viewed on the blog are recipes.  Members are using the search feature to find recipes from December and January as well.  Thanks for keeping this communication going.

  • Spice Bread with Quince and Pecans. Lisa posted the following recipe in comments on the blog.

Spice Bread with Quince and Pecans

1 stick butter
1/2 cup white sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
a mixture of 1 cup quince sauce with 1.5 tsp of baking soda
2 cups of flour
1/2 tsp salt
2 tsps cinnamon
2 tsps nutmeg
1/2 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

Preheat oven to 375. Lightly butter a bread pan and flour it too.

Cream the butter and the 2 sugars in a mixing bowl. add the eggs one at a time and continue mixing. stir in the quince mixture. Stir all dry ingredients together in a bowl and add to the butter mixture— stir just enough to combine well.

Turn into the bread pan and bake for about 50 minutes, until toothpick comes out clean. let cool in the pan for 5 minutes, before removing on a rack to finish cooling.

Serve and enjoy with almond butter

  • Apple Chips. Carson shared this recipe with me at the distribution.  I plan to make them today.  Carson sliced the apples very thin and placed on a pizza pan.  Bake on 100 degrees or the lowest setting in your oven for about an hour.  The apples will be nice and crisp.  Let them cool and keep in storage containers.  Carson said they work well in side dishes and for snacks.
  • Ginger-Grapefruit Tea Bread.  I love to eat grapefruit for breakfast.  Last week I started looking for new ways to use the grapefruit and found this recipe in Vegetarian Times.  It was a very moist bread and did not have a strong grapefruit or ginger taste. Click here for the recipe

Look for more recipes posted next week.  I try to match the recipes with the food that we receive for the week so if you have not seen yours yet….keep looking!
