Blackberry Vinegar Blackberry Vinegar By Foodborn and Bred 08/24/14 18:00 To begin with it helps to save a few vinegar bottles. I find the SuperValu range very good as the shaker thingies come out easily for cleaning. Also the labels are easily removed. There is nothing more annoying than labels that you have to scrape and soak...
Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood and Samphire Squid Ink Pasta with Seafood and Samphire By Foodborn and Bred 08/16/14 16:32 Lidl are apparently selling squid ink pasta at the moment. I had also got some fresh seafood bought for me in a fabulous fish shop in Navan by the chef. Sometimes he does nice stuff for me. So what to do only throw it all together. Apart from being disorganised...
A Taste of Cavan - The Future is The Past A Taste of Cavan - The Future is The Past By Foodborn and Bred 08/09/14 13:06 For me it began in the Olde Post Inn with a World War One commemorative seven course tasting menu. Edwardian dress was optional but many took part and dressed for the occasion, not least the two men in army uniform standing at the door with sack sandbags...
Eat This Not That Eat This Not That By Foodborn and Bred 08/08/14 11:43 Image from www.menshealth.co.uk A discussion on processed diet food recently where a manufacturer stated that theirs contain no additives, got me thinking. The definition of an additive is: something added to food to preserve it or enhance it's flavour...
Pork Loin  with Fresh Apricot and Walnut Stuffing Pork Loin with Fresh Apricot and Walnut Stuffing By Foodborn and Bred 07/29/14 22:37 Until I started rearing my own pigs I had only ever experienced dry and tough pork fillet no matter how I cooked it. Pork fillet from an outdoor reared pig is a different animal. It is tender, moist and so tasty. I had found this one in the depths of my...
Summer Fish Pie with a Potato Rosti Topping Summer Fish Pie with a Potato Rosti Topping By Foodborn and Bred 07/27/14 12:07 You tend to think of fish pie as a winter warmer but I love it and wanted to make it more summery. I looked up a few recipes and patched this together from them all. It is so good I think I will make it this way from now on. The rosti topping gives a lovely...
Farming on the Ditch Farming on the Ditch By Foodborn and Bred 07/17/14 19:59 When I moved to live outside a small village in a rural area over twenty years ago I knew nothing about farming. I couldn't have told you the difference between sileage and straw. I still wouldn't be great on crop identification but farming in this area...
Sunday Cookoff Sunday Cookoff By Foodborn and Bred 07/13/14 16:32 We have here in Ireland a pretty unique competition run via Twitter every Sunday. Entered by amateurs, judged by a busy professional for no prize or gain other than a nod and an acknowlegement from the said professional. Mad eh? Sunday Cookoff is where...
Soda Sliders Soda Sliders By Foodborn and Bred 06/30/14 16:39 Don't you just love when a food becomes trendy? Sliders - well we have had cupcakes, pulled pork and cronuts already! Anyway it basically means a small sandwich. I didn't feel much like cooking but knew I had some crabmeat in the fridge. Home made mayonnaise...
Strawberry & Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam Strawberry & Strawberry and Rhubarb Jam By Foodborn and Bred 06/28/14 18:27 It's strawberry season and rhubarb is just finishing off. It's no coincidence that these fruits (well okay fruit and vegetable) go magnificently well together. So make the most of both and either get crumbling or make jam. I bought a 4kg box of jam strawberries...
Cherry Clafoutis with a Kick Cherry Clafoutis with a Kick By Foodborn and Bred 06/25/14 16:43 You just have to love summer. It pays to wait and buy seasonal fruit and veg. It tastes better. It looks better and it is better. And best of all, if you only have it when it's in season you appreciate it. Is there anything less desirable in the depths...
Coffee and Walnut Cake Coffee and Walnut Cake By Foodborn and Bred 06/20/14 20:46 There are times when only a good old fashioned cake will do. The slightly bockety homemade cakes of my youth. I always loved coffee cake and like my coffee, I like it strong and dark. It should taste of coffee. When we were young at home this was always...
Gluten Free Gluten Free By Foodborn and Bred 06/12/14 14:50 First attempt at no knead sourdoughIt is not surprising that so many people say they are gluten intolerant. Admittedly there are many who have no idea even what it is, as seen on a video that went viral on Facebook recently. However, people are complaining...
Are We Living Longer Are We Living Longer By Foodborn and Bred 06/05/14 23:56 I started to listen with interest to a topic on Sean Moncrieff's afternoon programme on Newstalk the other day. He was interviewing an expert on Alzheimer's and Dementia. As the interview progressed I went from interest to disbelief. He said that we were...
Raw Honey Raw Honey By Foodborn and Bred 05/28/14 17:57 I've been itching to have an oul rant now for ages but have been biting my keyboard. It seems the most popular food blogs concentrate on recipes and reviews. Now I have no problem with blogging a recipe mainly for my own benefit, as when something works...
Lime Marmalade Lime Marmalade By Foodborn and Bred 05/24/14 22:30 I found loads of yellowing but perfectly sound limes in my pig veg the other day. I Googled a recipe and found this. I had 1.8kg of limes with a few lemons thrown in. I added the bicarb and then decided to use a kilo of SureSet sugar. I didn't want it very...
Rye and Birdseed Bread Rye and Birdseed Bread By Foodborn and Bred 05/16/14 15:51 Cynthia over at *Solitary Cook first posted this recipe calling it Gold Nugget bread. I tasted it when I was down in *Oldfarm and was really impressed. It was nutty and delicious and so so light. Margaret uses Spelt flour. So of course I just had to have...
Drawing with Light Drawing with Light By Foodborn and Bred 05/12/14 14:59 A pastoral scene under a lime tree Some valuable lessons learned yesterday. Every day is a school day, right? 1. The word photograph means drawing with light. 2. Clean your lens. 3 Forget all the bells and whistles on your camera, learn to compose your...
Porter Cake Porter Cake By Foodborn and Bred 05/09/14 13:40 When I was a child one of my friends was not allowed to read Enid Blyton. I was an avid reader and I used to loan her books to this friend surreptitiously. She then used to read them by torchlight in bed underneath her covers. To this day I never knew why...
On the Pig's Back On the Pig's Back By Foodborn and Bred 05/02/14 21:10 Warm potato salad with a yoghurt mustard dressingI hesitated writing this post. Why? Because the following dishes were cooked using ingredients that were dumped. I get black sacks of old fruit and vegetables from a small green grocer in my local town. It's...
