Pentecost or Feast of First Fruits

Just sharing what we are munching on during this wonderful feast day! We tried exciting more exotic fruits we’ve never had. The kids really enjoyed this because they really love sweet things. Of course there will be plenty of leftovers but I do have a Ninja so it’s no problem!

Mango, Dragonfruit, Pineapple, Kiwi, Apple, Orange, Peach. Pear, Watermelon, Horned Melon

This is nice seasoning if you want a little salty with the sweet. My Panamanian friend introduced this to me years ago and I’ve never looked back! 😋

Corned Beef and Cabbage Stew

Ingredients:

2.5 lbs of corned beef sliced

1 head of cabbage sliced

3 red potatoes cubed

2 yellow onions sliced

3 carrots sliced

3 cups beef broth

1/2 cup red wine

1 can tomato paste

1 tablespoon caraway seed

2 tablespoons turmeric

1 tablespoon rosemary

1 tablespoon thyme

1 tablespoon red pepper powder

1/3 cup of vinegar

1 bay leaf

2 star anise

4 cloves garlic chopped

vegetable oil

sea salt

lemon pepper seasoning

black pepper

water

Equipment: Dutch Oven

*I ended up having to buy my corned beef from the neighborhood deli so I asked them slice it thick. Then I sliced it again into strips when I got home*

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. On medium heat saute garlic, onions, carrots, sea salt, pepper, thyme, caraway seed and rosemary in vegetable oil. You will use the same dutch oven to do this.

Then combine corned beef and cabbage in the pot. Pour in beef broth, wine, vinegar and tomato paste. Cover with water and stir. Drop in a bay leaf and star anise. Add turmeric and red pepper powder.

Bake a maximum of 1.5 hours until potatoes tender. Remove from oven and stir occasionally and taste the broth to make sure seasoning is where you want it. Sprinkle in sea salt, pepper, and lemon pepper to taste. You can serve with rice or on its own.
