Red-seeded Citron Melons

This past summer, several vines volunteered themselves in my backyard, most likely from the compost. I waited patiently to see what fruit they might bear. As the small round and striped fruits started to mature, I was convinced they must be some kind of watermelon. In late August I sliced a small one open, about the size of a softball, to see what was inside. To my surprise it looked nothing like a watermelon. The flesh was white and there were many small white seeds. I cast it aside and said, "Smells like a melon, but I guess it's not ready yet."

Candied Acorn Squash from Johnathan Perno

Jonathan Perno, of La Merienda at Los Poblanos Historic Inn & Organic Farm, is fiercely committed to a farm to table philosophy, the Slow Food movement, and developing a hyper-regional culinary vocabulary. While he’s absolutely content to let the fresh ingredients take all the credit, Perno has already impressed the most critical of foodies with his own unique perspective on food.

Apple “Bird’s Nest” Salad by Pascale Beale

This dish was inspired by a dessert I read about in Gabrielle Hamilton’s cookbook, Prune. She makes luscious apple galettes baked in small ramekins with sugar sprinkled between each layer of apples. As I lingered over the photo of this dessert, I thought about making a savory version and preparing the apple so it retains its shape — a sort of deconstructed baked apple.

Pear Mincemeat (and Mincemeat Pie!)

I can't believe how many people have told me recently that they've never had mincemeat pie! Its name is an artifact of its origin in medieval times, when spiced meat and fruit pies were common. Modern versions usually just contain apples, raisins, and lots of warm spices. I made this lovely pear mincemeat using the tiny, hard pears from our backyard tree; the recipe makes enough for two pies, or two quarts for canning.

Turkey Soup with Red Chile and Sweet Potato Dumplings

Thanksgiving leftovers are the best! The turkey carcass is a valuable resource that many people overlook. You can make a huge amount of rich stock from it, and with that stock, any number of fantastic soups! When I've celebrated the holiday at other people's homes and it looks like they're going to throw the carcass away, I'll actually ask if I can take it. This year I'm excited to make a new soup that I just dreamed up - it's sort of a mashup of New Mexican posole and my grandmother's chicken and dumplings.

The best cabbage ever

At the kickoff of the new extended season of the Albuquerque Downtown Growers' Market, farmers' tables were bursting with wonderful wintery crops! A menagerie of winter squashes rubbed shoulders with garlic, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, arugula, and some absolutely amazing cabbages. I bought a gorgeous ruffled cabbage from Chispas Farms, and it's probably the best cabbage I have ever tasted. It's worth seeking out for its fabulous texture and flavor, which is more like Brussels sprouts or Dino kale.
