1 cup celery, chopped

1 head cauliflower, chopped

1/2 cup white wine

Cook the sausage in a large sauté pan, breaking it up into small pieces. 

Add the onions and celery to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes or until softened.

Add the cauliflower and cook for about 8 minutes. You want it to brown and caramelize a bit, so don't stir too often.

Add the walnuts and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the parsley and sage. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Try not to eat it all before your guests arrive!

{11}     Whiskey Butter Pork Chops with Corn, submitted by Jodi in Jackson, MO,  tigger63755@charter.net

4 bone-in pork rib chops (2 lb) 

1 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper

3 tablespoons butter 

1 cup thinly sliced sweet onion

1 cup fresh or frozen (thawed) whole kernel sweet corn

1/4 cup whiskey

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice

1/4 cup shredded fresh basil leaves

Directions

Rub pork chops with salt and pepper. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add pork; cook 6 to 7 minutes or until browned on first side. Turn pork; reduce heat to medium, and continue to cook 4 to 5 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink in center (at least 145°F). Transfer to plate; cover with foil to keep warm.

In same skillet, melt remaining 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. 

Add onion and corn; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until onion softens and begins to brown.

Remove from heat; add whiskey, and return to heat. 

Cook 1 to 2 minutes over medium-high heat until whiskey evaporates. 

Stir in lemon juice.

Pour corn mixture over pork. Sprinkle with basil.

Notes: We tested this recipe with bourbon, but Irish whiskey would be delicious as well.  Feel free to sub different types of pork chops in this recipe. Just be sure to adjust the cooking time accordingly, depending on thickness, so pork reaches an internal temperature of 145°F.

1 cup chopped pecans

1 cup sugar

Filling:

10-oz jar raspberry or blackberry preserves

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 9 x 13 pan.

Let sit for a couple of days.  Or you can find at a natural foods store.
1 spoon of rum--*tablespoon

For the white cream:

500 ml of whipping cream
1/2 tablespoon of icing sugar

Steps

Roll the dough in the size of baking tray, even better a few centimeters more since the dough will slightly shrink when baking. Put the dough on to the baking tray, than prick all over with the fork. Cut into two rectangles. 

Bake the dough approximately 10 to 15 minutes on 200 degrees until it gets a nice golden color.
While the pastry is chilling start preparing the cream. 

Separate egg yolks from egg white. Whisk the egg white and caster sugar until stiff. 

Whisk the egg yolks and sugar well until thick and pale. 

Then gently add 0.2 l of cold milk, sift the flour and stir in. 

Boil the rest of the milk together with vanilla sugar. 

Slowly add egg yolk cream and slightly stir for 10 minutes until egg cream is thick enough *coat the back of a spoon. 

Remove the pot from the heat and gently pour the custard into the egg white mixture. Stir the rum into the custard. Spread still warm cream  over pastry and leave it to chill.
Meanwhile whip the cream, sugar and vanilla sugar and spread it over chilled custard. Cover it with second plate of pastry, cut it into desired dimensions and dust it with icing sugar.
