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."

Tomato Jam with Honey, Black Pepper and Smoked Paprika

I first discovered tomato jam at the Corrales Farmers' Market, just a simple concoction of tomatoes, sugar, and lemon juice. I thought it was strange at first, a savory jam... but as I found more and more delicious ways to use it, I couldn't get enough. It's wonderful on an everything bagel with cream cheese, an English muffin with a poached egg, or alongside roasted chicken.

The Real Butcher Shop: A New Model for Food Communities

As a producer-owned shop, Tom and Tracy’s connection to process is unmatched. They know the business from the inside, and take “grass-finished” seriously; their birds graze on fields of chicory, millet, wheatgrass and brassicas, and are processed on-site. The poultry raised at Pollo Real will make up about a third of the shop’s meat (heritage turkey, duck, guinea foul, French Label Rouge and American Cornish hens). They will work closely with Shepherd’s Lamb in Tierra Amarilla, and beef ranchers in New Mexico and Colorado. Organic pork will be coming from the Midwest, where heritage breeds like Red Wattle, Mangolista, and Berkshire pigs dine on flaxmeal, peas, wheat and grass. According to Tom, top quality organic pork is difficult to find in New Mexico. Raising livestock themselves make Tom and Tracy acutely tuned in to where meat in their shop will come from and how its raised, if its not their own. Read on and try their Giblet Gravy recipe.

Roasted Corn Salsa

For just a few weeks every summer, the Schwebach Farm trailer shows up at farmers' markets with a huge load of sweet corn! I eat as much fresh corn as I can while it lasts, then look forward to next year. Roasting the corn caramelizes its sugars for a wonderful toasty flavor.

Fresh Grape Salsa

This simple and unusual recipe was given to me by a friend from Chihuahua several years ago. I planted grapevines along my front fence last year, and a few clusters have started to ripen (the only trouble is, they're not seedless). Many growers have grapes as well as all kinds of wonderful sweet onions, and of course fresh jalapenos, at the farmers' markets now. I got these sweet little Thompson seedless grapes from Crack Pot Herbs last weekend.

HONEY: THE ART OF BEES

Mmm…. I can think of lots of edible things, but not many as delicious as honey—and I don’t mean the typical honey you buy at the grocery store. I mean varietal honey, honey directly from the source, honey that can range in color and flavor from almost black with a deep rich ferrous molasses flavor to nearly clear with a smooth velvet sweetness that is the embodiment of divine. Good honey is like good wine, complex, with a deep spectrum of fragrance, taste and texture.
