Cooking Tip

Fruit Grilling Tips -

Fruits are best grilled when the coals have begun to die out or when placed on the outer edges of the grate, using more of an indirect type of heat.

Fruits can be grilled with skins on. Softer fruits benefit from leaving their skins on in that it helps maintain their shape and holds them together as they are being grilled.

To enhance the flavor of the fruit, try brushing cut fruits with melted butter and sprinkling with sugar, cinnamon, brown sugar, or lemon juice while grilling. Sugar tends to burn so it is best to apply it toward the end of cooking time.

Brushing fruit with melted butter or favorite oil during grilling will help to keep the fruit from sticking to the grill grate. Spraying a non-stick cooking spray on the grate before heating grill also keeps foods from sticking.

Baseball Season is HERE!

Baseball, hot dogs, and apple pie are often referred to as the core of American culture. Baseball fits into this equation because it is traditionally a family sport and one of the favorite past times of people in the U.S. Get a few people together on a Sunday afternoon and you can easily have a fun baseball game. It is also a sport in which many children participate for exercise and to learn about teamwork. While girls generally play softball, baseball is a gender-free sport. Opening Day for the Detroit Tigers was on Monday, April 6th against the Minnasota Twins. The Tiger games are often televised... a perfect time for a 'baseball party'. The arrival of spring and the anticipation of what a new season of baseball will bring makes a baseball party a perfect spring event.

Chicago Dog

Plenty of food and drink should be on hand at a baseball party. As mentioned previously, baseball along with hot dogs and apple pie are considered the heart of America. Other foods that can work well with a baseball party include hamburgers, barbeque, and sandwiches. Just about any food will work at this party. The only thing to keep in mind regarding food is that foods that have a long life without refrigeration are highly recommended.

Hit it out of the park with this recipe for a Chicago Dog!

Key Ingredient - Coconut Milk!

Although we Americans tend to think of coconut as an occasional flavor accent, it is actually a daily staple for more than one third of the world's population. It plays a central role in the diets of almost all peoples living in a broad band around the earth's equator, from Asia to coastal India to tropical Africa to Brazil and the Caribbean.

In these areas, by far the most prevalent culinary use of coconut is to make coconut milk. While it is quite easy to make your own coconut milk, many of the canned versions found in Asian, Indian, Caribbean markets or in our Asian aisle here at the Farmer's Market are as good as or better than anything you can make. The canned coconut milks imported from Thailand are generally of the highest quality.

In this recipe for Grilled Chicken Skewers with Coconut-Ginger Sauce the chicken is grilled and the slightly spicy, sweet, and pungent coconut dipping sauce is complemented by the traditional peanuts, not in the ususal sauce but in a shake that goes on after grilling. You'll probably have some shake and coconut sauce leftover, but don't worry - both go really well with grilled pork or lamb skewers too!
