Peach Lime Marmalade

August 27, 2016

I had a bowlful of organic peaches ripening fast and a lime rolling around in the refrigerator and wondered how this combination would taste together. This morning was the first time that I tried it on toast and I am surprised at how delicious it is. I think that I’ll try making more over the weekend.

A Note About Zest

A Note About Zest

 

The intense flavor and aroma of citrus zest adds great flavor to so many foods from soup to sauces to cookies and cakes.  The real trick in using lemon, lime or orange zest is to remove only the outer, colored layer of the peel.  Avoid the bitter white pith underneath.  Scrub the citrus well with a vegetable brush or coarse sponge to clean off any dirt or markings.  Next grate the zest, using a zester or the smallest holes on a conventional box grater.  You can also slice the zest off with a sharp paring knife or vegetable peeler and then finely mince it.   

The Schoolhouse At Cannondale

TheSchoolhouse At Cannondale

 

Saturday night I had dinner at The Schoolhouse At Cannondale.  Dinner was well executed and excellent. The schoolhouse is very sweet and tastefully decorated. Owner, Tim LaBent, does such a good job of making customers feel welcome as well as cooking up a storm.  I was invited to come into the kitchen, take a look around and get introduced to the staff.  The kitchen was tiny, but hopping and everyone seemed to be in-tuned with cranking out dishes with love.  The Schoolhouse At Cannondale is such a class act the menu personally welcomes you with your name printed at the top.  Dinner consisted of  “Baby carrots, avocado, radish, grilled scallion, lime, cilantro and sesame seeds;” “Posh n’ beans, ricotta, watercress, pea greens, and wave hill toast;” “Lamb sausage with cavatelli, broccoli rabe and preserved tomatoes;” “Squab with lacindo kale, spring onions, oyster mushrooms;” and “Chocolate soufflé with chocolate sauce and vanilla bean ice cream!” 

I will definitely be making my way back to The Schoolhouse At Cannondale.  A great place to bring friends as well.
