The Joy of Apricot Jam

 

Apricot jam brings me great joy.

I can take one lick of the sweet, tangy, golden goodness and be immediately transported to another time and place. I’m taken back to our honeymoon spent in Greece. I’ve been sharing My Yanni’s scrumptious Greek family recipes this summer and Yaya’s simple apricot jam has to be one of my favorites. Isn’t it fascinating how food can instantaneously connect us to our past through our sense of taste? The *ahem* older I get the more I become aware of the things that really matter in life.

I’ve realized that some of the most important things in life are actually the simplest of things.

Family & friends, love & laughter and the memories that are woven out of them…those are the things that bring me the greatest joy.

Remembering something as simple as the early morning walks with My Yanni to fetch a fresh loaf of bread for Yaya’s apricot  jam, can bring a smile to my lips. Finding the photo of My Yanni climbing Yaya’s apricot tree…now that makes me smile ear to ear.

Yaya’s apricots were like tasting golden sunshine packed inside a soft, fuzzy orb. And the jam that they made…that Yaya Eftehia made…was like nothing I’ve ever tasted.

Pure perfection.

Even better yet, Yaya’s name Eftehia, means joy. And boy, if that jam didn’t bring joy to all who tasted it. For years My Yanni & I have fondly talked about that apricot jam. We  laugh about sneaking bites out of the sweet boiling pot before it was time, and how yaya would scold us and chatter to herself as she shooed us out of her kitchen. I still to this day have the recipe I scribbled down as My Yanni translated Yaya’s instructions but until recently, I’ve never attempted to make her golden goodness.

Until now.

This simple bowl of apricots inspired me to dig out Yaya’s apricot jam recipe.

Isn’t that funny that a simple bowl of apricots could quietly encouraged me to make Yaya’s jam?

And boy am I glad I did.

Let me show you how easy it is…

Wash, cut and remove pits from apricots.

Place apricots in a pot with a tiny bit of water- I put in one teaspoon.

Cook apricots over a low heat, stirring occasionally soft.

Keep an eye on the pot as they cook down and eventually soften. I had a pound of apricots and it took about an hour.

Once soft, squash them with a wooden spoon or fork and measure the amount of gooey deliciousness in a measuring cup. For every one cup of fruit add one cup of sugar. Isn’t that easy? That tip demystified making jam for me.

I shall never be afraid to make jam again. 

Add sugar.

The addition of sugar will make the consistency of the jam temporarily thinner, so continue to cook over low heat, (for about 30-45 minutes) stirring occasionally until jam starts to thicken.

I have another easy tip from Yaya that put the joy into making jam for me.

Simply drip a drop of jam into a bowl of water. If the dripped drop stays…

the jam is ready…if the drip dropped melts away it needs to cook longer. How fun is that?

Once the jam is drip-drop tested, squeeze in some fresh lemon juice (I used half a lemon for the one pound of apricots) and a few drops of good vanilla. Let cool, spoon jam into a covered jar or even a bowl and keep refrigerated.

Or better yet…

Grab a spoon and dig in.

Ahhh, the simple joy of apricot jam.

Pure perfection.

Easy Homemade Apricot Jam

(makes about 2 small jars)

What You’ll Need:

1 pound apricots
1 cup sugar
1 Tablespoon water
Juice of half a lemon
2 drops good vanilla

Note: Ratio of apricots to sugar is one to one. Measure the fruit after it is cooked down and soft.

What You’ll Do:

Wash, cut and remove seeds in the apricots.

Place apricots in a pot with 1 Tablespoon of water.

Cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about an hour until apricots cook down and become soft.

When apricots are soft smash them with a fork or wooden spoon.

Add one cup of sugar and continue to cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, for about another 30-45 minutes until jam starts to thicken.

To test for correct consistency, drip a drop of the jam into a bowl of water, if the drip stays in a ball in the water the jam is ready.

Add juice of half a lemon, 2 drops of vanilla, stir and let cool.

Place in your favorite container and store in refrigerator.

Enjoy!

Baked Goat Milk Brie Wrapped in Phyllo Dough

There is a certain attitude that comes along with summertime. A laid back, relaxed, let’s embrace the moment kind of mindset that I adore relishing in. The golden, sunshine filled days cool into lazy firefly evenings that can spontaneously turn into impromptu entertaining. I love it when these last minute gatherings materialize out of thin air and I especially love it when I’ve got a delicious savory appetizer on hand that can go from fridge to table in minutes. This goat milk brie and phyllo was born out of one of those delicious impromptu evenings spent with friends and has now become a favorite crowd pleaser! Some evenings I just pop a few of these in the oven for the family and skip dinner all together!

An Evening with Orville & Sandra Dee (and a Giveaway)

It’s FRIDAY!

After a looooooooong week I’m always ready to just crash. But somehow it never quite seems to work out that way. You see I’ve got two sweet little girls…well, actually a 10 yr old and a teenager.

*cough, cough*

How on earth it is possible that I have a teenager I’ll never know.

But let’s just say that trying to decide what to do each weekend that appeals to each of the four family members in my home has become, well, downright impossible.

That was until Orville Redenbacher came back into my life. Remember him? Takes me back to my teen days and the commercials that would echo throughout the house…”or my name isn’t Orville Redenbacher” while I was dramatically delivering MY own plea to my parents about wanting to see MY friends NOT hang with the family.

Le sigh.

What comes around goes around.

You see I was invited to try some the Orville Redenbacher “Pop & Win” microwave popcorn recently and my mind began racing. I decided that it would be the perfect bribe addition to a family movie night! So I informed the kids that there would be plenty of popcorn…

and that they would get to pick the movie…

(gulp) and a family night was set into motion. To my delight they decided on one of my all time favorite movie musicals -“GREASE.”

I was a happy mama.

In between the countless sing-a-longs by myself & My Yanni (and occasional eye-rolling by the children) we all had fun taking turns tossing the bags of popcorn into the microwave and waiting in suspense to see if we had won!

The kids soon started to realize that it wasn’t all that bad spending time with the rents.

Kinda.

And then guess what? After about 3 bags of popping…

We WON!

And then they really started realizing that it wasn’t that bad spending time with the rents.

We won 50 free prints from Snapfish Photo! How cool is that?!? One in every six bags is a winner! And you have a chance to win Wii™ console and games, HDTVs, laptops, movies and more!

The nice folks at Orville Redenbacher even included these darling popcorn boxes and some movie candy too!

Would you just look at that gorgeous popcorn?

*Heaven*

Our Friday movie night was complete. And everyone was happy.

With a little bit of, Look at me I’m Sandra Dee

and… Together foreverrrrrrr, like shoo bop doo wadda wadda yippity boom de boom….

I’m pretty sure that it’s safe to say, a family movie night paired with some delish Orville Redenbacher popcorn sure does go together like ramma lamma lamma ka dinga da dinga dong…

I’ll stop now.

O.k. time for the giveaway!

One winner will receive the Pop & Win microwave popcorn, the darling popcorn boxes, some movie candy AND one Redbox code for a free movie! Just leave me a comment telling me your favorite song from Grease and don’t worry if you’ve never seen the movie, you can just tell me what YOUR all time favorite movie is!

That’s easy enough, right?

Giveaway starts today, Friday March 11, 2011 and will end Monday March 14, 2011 at midnight. I will announce one lucky winner on Tuesday!

Good Luck and have a great weekend!

Hopefully it won’t zip by like, GREASE Lightnin’.

Sorry, I couldn’t help myself.

Wenderly

Thanks to the nice folks at Orville Redenbacher for sponsoring this fun giveaway!

We have a winner!

I LOVED reading all of your answers, sounds like everyone has a favorite song from the movie Grease!

Would love to have a sing-a-long with all of right now…

But don’t worry I won’t. It’s time to reveal the winner of the Orville Redenbacher giveaway.

Are ya ready?

It was… Jennifer!

Who said- “You’re the one that I want

Congratulations Jennifer! I’ll be emailing you with the prize details!

Thanks everyone this sure was FUN!

P B & J Snowman Sandwiches

I look out the window at the moment and all I see is snow, snow, snow.

Beautiful, quiet, white snow stretched out over the grass like one big blanket.

When my girls were younger *sniff* and would get all bundled up in their darling snow gear, eyes glistening while anxiously dancing around until they could finally skip outside for a day of winter wonder, I was always thinking of fun ways to welcome them back into the warmth. Hot cocoa with fluffy marshmallows was a must but one day I decided to get creative with lunch. I peeked outside to see them working diligently on a snowman and thought how fun it would be to bring their creation inside! It was then that the snowman peanut butter & jelly sandwich was born.

As I’ve been watching it snow here in suburbia I’ve been a bit nostalgic remembering those carefree-snow-fun-filled-days as I run my teenage daughter to mall & organize play-dates for my 10 year old rather than bundle them up their darling snow gear.

*sniff*

Then I remembered the precious little snowman sandwich…and a smile spread across my face (and heart) and I got to work.

A little food therapy.

What could be better than that? It’s not a culinary breakthrough mind you but rather a sweet reminder of being a kid again, in the snow, without a care in the world building snowmen until your cheeks turn pink and numb.

This is all you need! Your favorite peanut butter & jelly, 2 slices of bread & 2 circular cookie cutters (1 small & 1 medium size).

There is just nothing like a fresh jar of peanut butter is there? That sound of the seal breaking as you unscrew the lid…

that intoxicating smell of peanuts wafting up into your nostrils as you remove the paper seal.

That first virgin dip of the knife into the smooth surface…

Heaven.

See? I really do find food and the process of making food to be therapeutic…anyone else with me?

Spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread.

Then open the gorgeous sweet jelly…

O.k. actually that happens to be strawberry preserves because I prefer preserves over jelly but a “peanut butter & strawberry preserve sandwich” just doesn’t have the same ring to it, ya know?

And spread the jelly (or preserves) onto the other slice of bread.

Place the two slices of bread together, push your small cookie cutter into the bread,

and you’ll get a sweet little circle that will become the head of your snowman. Repeat with the larger cookie cutter for the body.

Next you’ll need some fun little candy embellishments!

I used sprinkles, silver dragees, non-pareils and some fruit tape, but you could use whatever you like!

You’ll definitely need some snow…

That’s how all this fun started after all! I used powered sugar.

Now for some creativity! It’s time to decorate the little fella! Let your imagination run wild! Kids love this part as well!

I made a cap & scarf out of the fruit tape and topped with a cotton candy pomp.

An orange sprinkle as his nose and 2 blue non-pareils for his eyes,

some dragees for buttons and then a sprinkling of powdered sugar for snow!

The final touch, puffy cotton candy clouds from which a few candy snowflakes fall and you’ve got yourself the perfect little wintertime lunch for all the kids to enjoy.

I mean who wouldn’t enjoy that?

No matter what the age.

AND you get to play with your food!

Happy snowman making!

Chocolate Dunked Sweet & Salty Apples

I’ve never really been one to do anything by the book. I kinda march along through life to the beat of my very own drummer and that suits me just fine. Makes life more interesting ya know?

I wear my watch on my right wrist and I’m right handed.

I (kinda) type with my left middle finger and right pointing one.

Back in High School I wore Bermuda shorts (mostly plaid and patchwork) every single day my Junior and Senior year. Don’t ask me why. I liked them. Perhaps it was to show off my always tanned legs from the < gasp > suntan booth. Perhaps it was in rebellion to not being allowed to ride the brand new, shiny bright red moped past the end of my driveway. I’m serious. Do you know how hard it is to look cool while riding up and down your driveway 150 times a day? That’s a lot of time spent to end up nowhere. And just imagine how cold that was in the dead of winter wearing Bermudas.

So the other day as I exclaimed “that really frosts my Frito” and the people that I was conversing with laughed and said, “what did you say?” I was again reminded of my uniqueness.

But it got me to thinking.

Thinking of how much I LOVE sweet and salty…. Fritos® and frosting…and chocolate and apples…

I know, I’ll make chocolate dipped apples with Fritos and how about pretzels?… and of course sprinkles!

See how my mind works? Me either. But I did make some fabulous chocolate covered apples embellished with Fritos, pretzels and sprinkles.

Do you like sweet & salty? Well then my friend, come along with me!

First you’ll want some darling little washed apples. I used Gala but you can use whatever kind of apple you like.

These are the ingredients for the chocolate dipping glaze, semi-sweet chocolate chips, light corn syrup, water, & butter. Oh and wooden skewers. I like to use these fabulous long skewers, they add interest and fun and once again you can see that I’m marching right along to my own beat.

Of course you’ll need pretzels & Fritos.

And some darling sprinkles!

I thought that these sprinkles looked very festive for Halloween don’t you?

Next push the skewers into the center of the apples (sharp side first).

Heck, I could just eat them like this! NAH! What am I nuts? It’s the sweet & salty that I’m waiting for!

So, now it’s time to make the chocolate glaze. I use this glaze for everything! I’m not sure where I got this recipe but I’ve used it for decades and it’s so simple! You don’t even need a double boiler.

Just combine the butter, light corn syrup, and water over medium heat and stir until it just begins to boil.

Then remove from heat and add the chocolate chips and continue stirring,

until your glaze looks like this.

Isn’t that gorgeous? And see? It couldn’t be easier!

Now you’ll want to grab an already skewered apple by the stick and dip it into the chocolate glaze. Roll the apple around until it has a nice thick coating all over it.

Then while the apple is still wet, place the apple into your embellishments.

I just crunched the Fritos up in a baggie before dumping them onto a plate. After embellishing, place the apples on a wax paper lined cookie sheet.

Now repeat the same process with all of the apples and yummy toppings.

Some crunchy salty pretzels.

Some sweet and crunchy sprinkles.

Put the apples into the fridge for 20-30 minutes to let the chocolate set.

Just look how fun and festive these little darlings turned out.

Sometimes marching to a different beat pays off!

And in this case, I’d say that it definitely did!

Hope you enjoy!

Wenderly

Here’s the recipe:

Chocolate Dunked Sweet & Salty Apples

(Serves 6)

What you’ll need:

6 washed small-medium apples
6 wooden skewers
1 cup smashed Fritos
1 cup smashed pretzels
1 cup sprinkles

Ingredients for the Chocolate Glaze:

3 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons light corn syrup
3 tablespoon water
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Here’s what you’ll do:

Place a skewer into the top/center of each apple.

Sprinkle your smashed Fritos, pretzels and sprinkles onto separate small plates.

In a small saucepan over medium heat combine the butter, light corn syrup and water and stir until the mixture just comes to a boil. Remove from heat and add chocolate chips, stir until chips are melted and glaze is shiny.

Grab an apple by the skewer and dip each apple into the chocolate glaze and roll until covered in chocolate. Immediately dip apple into  a chosen topping until the bottom half of the apple is covered.

Place apple onto a wax paper covered baking sheet. Repeat until each apple is covered and embellished.

Chill in fridge for 20-30 minutes until chocolate is set.

ENJOY!

Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Baked Apples

Once you try this scrumptious Brown Sugar & Cinnamon Baked Apples recipe you will want to make it every single day. And guess what? It’s so easy you will!

We have a joke in our family about apples. Ever since I can remember and especially after school while my sister and I were ravenous and scavenging for something starchy and satisfying, my mom’s standard response to “what can we have to eat?” was “have an apple.”

What? Seriously? An apple? Ummmm, I was thinking somewhere along the lines of nachos swimming in melted cheese.

After a while we didn’t even bother to ask any more. We just started digging fast and furious into every chip bag we could find until we heard her footsteps coming followed by the “Girls? Are you home? What do you want for an after school snack? Why don’t you have an apple?” It was truly remarkable that my mom had the uncanny ability to know the exact moment that we were digging into the chip bags. She knew it every…single…time…(without fail).Why do chip bags have to make so much dag on noise?

Well guess what? Now the joke’s on me, I’m a mom of two girls and somehow, mysteriously, through no conscious intent of my own, the words, “have an apple“, now echo through the kitchen at my house. It’s like a curse or something…as I hear the familiar rustle of chips bags, I find myself casually pop around the corner with an innocent “why don’t you girls have an apple?” How can this be happening? Guess it’s true what they say about turning into your mother! And still to this day I must admit that I wonder if she was actually in cahoots with the obnoxiously loud sounding chip bag manufacturers.

Now don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with apples! I love apples. Adore them! Even after a lifetime of eating them daily whether I wanted to or not. And I’m so happy that I’ve instilled the love of them into my children as well. That’s why this recipe written by my tween, Sassafras, delights me so. She has gotten creative with her apple consumption and I must say that this is an easy yet decadent way to enjoy an apple. Clever, clever girl she is.

So I give to you…brown sugar & cinnamon baked apples.

Here’s what you’ll need. An apple, cinnamon, brown sugar, and some aluminum foil cut into squares.

My daughter makes this yummy treat on a regular basis, but I’ve never attempted to do so. The night before I planned on making these sweet packets of deliciousness, I left a note with a few questions for her to answer before she left for school and I woke up to this.

Instead of simply answering my questions she wrote out “her” recipe. I think that I may have a foodie on my hands!

Begin by cutting an apple in half and coring it. I used a gala apple but any apple will do!

Next, slice each half into very thin slices. Approximately 20 slices for each half.

You’ll end up with a big pile of apples.

Place all of the slices in the center of a piece of foil (make sure that the foil is big enough to close easily around the apples or you’ll have an ooey gooey mess on your hands after it cooks).

Sprinkle 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and 2 Tablespoons of brown sugar all over the apples.

That’s it! Do you believe it?  No butter, no anything else, the brown sugar and cinnamon combined with the juices of the apple make their very own magnificent sauce.

Wow, why didn’t I think of this when I was a kid?

I found that gathering each corner of the foil up and pinching it together kept all of the fabulous brown sugar & cinnamon sauce in the packet rather than all over the oven.

Placing your packets on a baking sheet is a good idea as well. Bake in a 400º oven for 25 minutes.

The result? Warm, succulent cinnamony (is that a word?) melt in your mouth baked apples. Make sure to pour all of the sauce all over the top, grab a fork and dig in!

Maybe my mom was on to something.

Now go have an apple!

Homemade Cranberry Almond Granola

Autumn is in the air!

And with that comes busy schedules, meals on the go and even more of a good reason to eat healthy.

It’s very challenging to find healthy, quick and easy options that satisfy all of the members of my family! Let’s just say that each of us have individual opinions about what we like and dislike and leave it at that. However, we can all agree on granola as a healthy snack option! And it’s perfect for breakfast, a quick midday pick-me-up or it can satisfy a sweet tooth any time of day!

This wholesome, sweet treat has endless possibilities! You can create any combination of ingredients you wish. We like (and agree) on dried cranberry with slivered almonds, but you can switch it up with whatever dried fruit, nut or seed that tickles your fancy in any combination you like.

Just a few simple ingredients are needed to make this granola – whole oats, slivered almonds, dried cranberries and cinnamon.

Ahhhh, cinnamon. I just love cinnamon. Nutmeg would be good too.

Honey. Sweet, thick golden gooey honey…

and canola oil.

Mix the oil and honey together and pop it into the microwave for 1 minute. This will help marry the two and they will  live happily ever after among the oats and other ingredients.

Note: Feel free to play around with the amount of oil you use, this recipe makes for a softer granola, if you’d like yours to be crunchy, cut down on the amount of oil.

Next, spread the oats onto a baking sheet with sides

Add the oil & honey, almonds and cinnamon and give a big stir. (Set the cranberries aside, they’ll be added in after the baking.)

Bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes, give the granola a stir half way through.

Can you smell that? Heaven. Pure heaven.

Add the dried cranberries and give another stir until all incorporated.

And…Ta Dah!

Wasn’t that easy?

Enjoy your granola by the hand full or try it my favorite way, sprinkled over a big dollop of Greek yogurt!

Happy Autumn!

Wenderly

  • 1/2 cup canola oil (or less if you like a crunchier granola)
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350ºF.

Stir the canola oil and honey together and pop into microwave for 1 minute.

While the oil and honey are heating, place oats, almonds and cinnamon onto a baking sheet with sides.

Once oil and honey are heated, pour onto oat mixture and stir all ingredients until incorporated.

Bake at 350ºF for 20 minutes and give the granola a stir half way through.

After granola has cooled add the cranberries.

Patriotic Watermelon & Feta Flag

I love the 4th of July! I love everything about it. The parade, the picnics, the friends and family, the fireworks. What I don’t like is rushing around worrying about what I can make for all of the festivities! Last year as I was planning and plotting about what dishes to make for the holiday packed with picnics and parties the thought occurred to me…

Does it really have to be this difficult?

No.

I heard myself say out loud.

Thank goodness this “self discussion” was going on in the comfort of my own home and not in the middle of my local grocery store is all I have to say.

Not only did I talk to myself out loud, I’m quite certain that I clapped & jumped with glee over the idea of a watermelon feta flag as it popped into my head. And blueberries! Don’t forget the blueberries! We just went to Berryfield Farms and picked blueberries so this year my flag will be embellished with delicious, fresh off the bush, blueberries!

I adore watermelon and feta. Have you ever tried it? Sweet & salty, creamy & juicy. The flavors compliment one another in a way that will make your mouth sing (or maybe even talk out loud).

My Yanni introduced me to this decadent duo years ago while on our honeymoon in Greece. And you know what they say,”when in Greece…” so I gave in and instantly fell in love!

These are the fresh and gorgeous ingredients.

Watermelon, feta and blueberries.

I just love the colors and textures together.

Next you’ll need a platter, preferably a rectangle but an oval would work too and a small bowl.

Pour the blueberries into the bowl and place at the top left corner for the stars.

Next, slice your feta because feta makes everything “betta” (at least that’s what I think).

Cut the slices into cubes.

I used one 8oz square of feta.

Don’t ya just want to pop one in your mouth?

I did…………………………………..(don’t tell anyone)!

Next, the watermelon. I used half of a seedless watermelon. As a far as quantity goes for this recipe, it depends on the size of the platter you use. It’s always better to have to0 much than too little because my family is always lurking about ready to dive in, therefore the extras come in handy (don’t mess with mama’s stars & stripes).

It’s all about the stars & stripes when making a watermelon feta flag ya know.

So cut your watermelon into slices.

Trim off the rind.

Cut the watermelon int to strips.

And finally cubes.

Now grab a platter with bowl of blueberries,

and place the watermelon and feta into pretty rows starting with the watermelon until you fill the platter!

Now don’t forget cute little toothpicks for easy not to mention healthy handling of the goods!

And that is my easy peasy patriotic no hassel 4th of July watermelon feta flag!

Hope you enjoy a lovely holiday weekend!

Wenderly

Here’s the easy peasy recipe:

Patriotic watermelon & Feta Flag
 
A sweet & salty refreshingly delightful treat!
Ingredients
  • Half of a seedless watermelon
  • 8 ounces of feta cheese
  • 1 pint of blueberries
Instructions
  1. Cut and cube half of a seedless watermelon.
  2. Cube 8 ounces of feta.
  3. Rinse off 1 pint of fresh blueberries.
  4. Pour blueberries into a bowl, preferably square and place in the top left corner of a rectangle (or oval) platter.
  5. Assemble watermelon and feta into rows, starting with the watermelon.
 
Notes
Serve with a side of toothpicks for easy and healthy handling of the food.
