Sweet Maple Butter

Mayple butterBeing a Vermonter, this is one of my all time fall-favorite recipes. This sweet treat is good on everything from breakfast to dinner. This time of year, every restaurant has a jar of maple butter on each table in Vermont. As you can imagine, this sweet butter is fantastic on toast, pancakes, and waffles. However, give this a try on something a little more uncommon. Add to popcorn, atop sweet potatoes, or mix in with vegetables. Feeling adventurous? Substitute sweet maple butter for regular butter when baking. Pair this sweet treat with local, pure maple syrup from the Skidding Deer Sugar House at Barnum and Buckley Farm in Southwick, Mass for the ultimate pancake breakfast! Enjoy, or as my YiaYia says, "yassou!" Katlin.

Set out butter till softened. Blend with Maple Sugar. Serve with warm rolls.

Cranberry Marsala Marinade

I cannot decide on dinner. Beef or Poultry?  All I know is it needs to work with this marinade.  I just picked up a bag of fresh cranberries and I am on a rant to enjoy this fabulous flavor of the season until I can't get them anymore. This little red berry accentuates recipes, from sweet to savory, like nothing else. 

But what to prepare, those turkey cutlets or the tenderloin tips?  Perhaps I will skip the land animals and try it with a nice salmon fillet this time...

In a saute pan braise cranberries, walnut oil and 1/2 cup marsala wine until the cranberries begin to pop.  Add remaining wine,  garlic, honey and Cranberry Bog Blend. Reduce heat to medium and stir for another 5 minutes.  Marinate beef, poultry, pork or fish for at least 3 hours, or overnight.

Wil Stebbins • People laugh at me when I say this but ... I miss the old fashioned relish trays that you would get in restaurants. You know the kind that had fresh cranberry relish, cottage cheese, pickles and melba toast. I LOVE cranberries.
