Did you use a frozen duck or did you special order one?


This year for Christmas I ordered a fresh ham from Heritage Foods. I did a rub of kosher salt, sage, orange zest and anise. After roasting I deglazed the pan with some orange juice, reduced and finnished with some butter. It was a pretty damn good porcine feast.

Super simple and deliciious. I just made it yesterday, it was one of my plans for the blizzard, however New York ended up not getting hit hard at all.

The lady said she wanted something good.

Made Salmon Cannelloni with Lemon-White Wine-Clam-Cream Sauce and Sugar Peas with Shaved Almonds.

Well the Mauviel (thank you poorly described Ebay auction) and Goose arrived at my doorstep yesterday. The lady requested the return of Victorian Holiday Meal from two years ago. So on with the goose and figgy pudding.

it does look like it was written explicitly for ISHiots.

re: tomatoes,
i was just reading that heating them a bit drastically raises their...
lycopene. not sure if the tradeoff is worth it, but...

re: strawberries,
just for gits and shiggles i recently started grilling them on a certain
electric low-heat grill of mine, one side only. in the words of the article,
it's a motherf--king flavor explosion... like fresh strawberry tart without
any extra sugar or pastry flour needed.

re: blueberries,
i add flash-frozen ones (and also as part of a berry mix) to my steel-cut
oats, now. a couple raisins and maybe cranberries, and it hardly needs
any sugar.


i still need to get on the grape and chard bandwagons, though, so a big
f--k off to thug kitchen for reminding me.

I'm sorry you're so sad, lonely, and dependent.

I was just remembering that meal that you had posted. Looked really great; clever alternative to the traditional turkey dinner.

Looking forward to the pics

Yeah, last year is in this thread, but there must have been a different thread for two years ago.
