Raspberry Sauce, with Port and Cinnamon

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I found these raspberries in the freezer. These are the remainders of many bags of raspberries. Berries that were grown, picked and then saved (in the freezer) until it was time to make jam. There were 3 partial bags hidden and tucked out of sight. Together the 3 bags measured 2 quarts of berries. Let's make something with them!


How to make Raspberry Sauce with Port and Cinnamon.
Raspberry Sauce with Port and Cinnamon, in the making.

Raspberry Sauce with Port and Cinnamon
by the seat of my pants!

2 quarts of raspberries
1 c sugar (or Rapadura)
1/2 c Ruby Port
1/4 t salt
1 t Vietnam Cinnamon
1 T cornstarch



Combine berries, sugar, spices, and wine in a large flat bottom pan with a lid.

Bring to a simmer, and cover. Cook 15 minutes.

When the time is up, remove the cover and turn off the heat source. But leave the pan on the burner, when needed it will return to a simmer very quickly.


Remove about 1/4 c of the pan "juices" into a small measure cup and put in the freezer to chill about 15 minutes.



Use a whisk to break up the berries.




Stir the cornstarch into the cooled raspberry juice. Stir until smooth, it does not take long and the few seeds don't get in the way.

Return the mixture to a simmer, stir in the cornstarch mixture. Simmer until smooth and clear.



I will put 3 in the freezer for a delicious treat later this winter.



This will be served now.
I hear yogurt or cake or biscuits buttered with cream cheese calling out for some of this delicious sauce.


This is a delicious, slightly tart yet sweet dessert sauce, that could not be easier to make. You will love it.........

Enjoy!

Green Bean Cobbler, AKA "the other green bean casserole"

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
This green bean casserole is very good and a perfect way to enjoy those green beans put away in the freezer from last years garden. Of course, it is just as delicious with green beans bought from the grocery store. It is also nothing like the more famous holiday green bean casserole, this one is not too salty or processed, it is fresh and delicious! 
Green beans, sour cream, cheddar cheese, and a crunchy topping, what is not to like? The author suggests that this casserole is made with either garlic or onions. And I think she is correct, both might overpower the sour cream covering the green beans. This first time I will make it with garlic and the next time will be with onions.....

Southern Green Beans

Green beans are in our freezer for use this winter. Having grown in our garden this summer. I have never been a big fan of green beans, until growing our own. There is something satisfying about cooking what you grow. There is a lot we have learned about growing what you will cook.....


We were successful with green beans last year and again this year. However, we did not grow the same beans this year. This year we grew tri-colored beans. They are beautiful as well as tasty. You will see that once cooked, magically the beans are all the same color.

Taco Pickles

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…
When I eat Tex-Mex, I enjoy a spicy, vinegary condiment on my food. And when we have fish for dinner, I want something with a bit of a bite to it, to add some excitement. Fish can be a bit tame on that dinner plate. You could also tuck a spoonful of this crispy, spicy, sweet and puckery delight in a sandwich or anywhere else a spicy flavor is desired!

For this recipe we used carrots stored in our root cellar from last fall, I think we can call the root cellar project a success!
