Coming Clean about Clean Eating

Squeaky Clean. Clean as a whistle. Making a clean cut and a clean getaway. Coming clean. The word clean conjures up a streamlined approach to cutting through the clutter, telling the truth, as well as simplifying and often sanitizing life. Clean eating has joined the contemporary nomenclature to describe healthier, more nutritious food choices. Perhaps meaning that a food product has fewer total ingredients, all natural ingredients and all the information you need to know where your food is coming from is revealed. Clean infers transparency.

Ingredient Spotlight: Paprika

Paprika is also packed with antioxidants and nutrients that have several health benefits. Even small amounts of paprika can provide you with a healthy dose of vitamins A, E, B-6, iron and capsaicin. Just one teaspoon has 37 percent of the daily recommended intake of vitamin A! These vitamins are crucial in preventing cellular damage and keeping your body functioning as it should. Capsaicin is the active ingredient in chili peppers that cause them to be spicy, and it has been shown to relax blood vessels and lower blood pressure. Capsaicin also has antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties which makes it an ingredient often included in topical creams used for pain relief.

Ingredient Spotlight: Miso

A staple in Chinese and Japanese diets from as far back as 2,500 years ago, miso is a paste made from soybeans, sea salt and a mold starter called koji. The mixture ferments between three months and three years, producing an enzyme-rich food that looks like tofu or cheese. Japanese culture has the tradition of consuming miso soup daily—most often in the morning— to stimulate digestion and energize the body.

Nuts for Butternut!

Squash, squash everywhere! It’s that time of year when you’d be hard-pressed not to see those oblong beauties overflowing in farmer’s market booths and piling high in grocery store produce bins. Butternut squash, in particular, is one of the sweeter, more versatile varieties, and its culinary uses seem as endless as their storage life (which is up to six months if stored in the right conditions, by the way!). Lucky for us, this squash can be prepared in a plethora of ways for breakfast, lunch, and dinner- snacks and desserts, too! Here’s some culinary inspiration for the next time a butternut mountain accumulates on your kitchen counter.

Here’s 4 ways to wake up your tired salsa routine:

Beer Pairings for the Week of September 26th, 2016

In 1907, Belgium had as many breweries as the United States in 2012. Seriously, over 3,000 breweries in a country roughly twice the size of Maryland. Whenever someone says we’re getting over-saturated with breweries, we think of that fact. For this dish of sweet, cream, spice, and acid we are going to pair a Belgian golden ale that will help the sweet potatoes shine and not overshadow the other flavors.

Navigating the Tofu Aisle

The gelatinous block of white curd pressed from coagulated soymilk is emblematic among vegetarian foodies, and despite facing stark opposition tofu has accelerated in popularity as a versatile meatless protein option. A closer look at the tofu section of the grocery store reveals that that not all of those white soy blocks are alike; the plastic wrappers describe their contents with words like silken, firm, and extra-firm, leaving many tofu-rookies scratching their heads. But hang in there! Here’s some clarification for future tofu endeavors:

Beer Pairings for the Week of September 5th, 2016

Barbecue and beer is a match made in heaven, even in a dry southern county. For the sweeter styles of barbecue, we tend to avoid India Pale Ale because of the contrast between sweet and bitter can be a little jarring. IPAs with fruitier southern hemisphere hops are the exception to that rule. For this Alabama White Sauce barbecue, we suggest a tropical hopped IPA that will bring some mango and papaya flavors to temper the contrast between sweet and bitter. Suggestion: Boulevard The Calling, Kansas City, Missour Georgia Local Recommendation: Monday Night Slap Fight, Atlanta, Georgia

Beer Pairings for the Week of August 29th, 2016

When people think of Low Country boil and beer they tend to think of light crisp lagers. Today we run in the opposite direction and choose a brown ale. The traditional British brown ale, first perfected in seventeen hundred, was a malty-sweet, lightly hopped ale with a biscuit characteristic. For this dish, the sweet biscuit characteristic will let the spicy dish shine.

What’s the Difference Between a Sear and Sauté, Anyway?

Flipping through the pages of your faithful cookbooks, observing the brilliant array of evocative edibles alongside their charming plates and place settings, you notice the embellished titles of the recipes: Pan-Seared Lambchops in a Pomegranate Balsamic Reduction, Sauteed Scallops over Buttery Angel Hair Pasta, Blackened Shrimp Tacos with Roasted Garlic and Tomato Salsa…. Do these words even mean anything? Is there really a difference between pan-frying and pan-searing? Why yes, there is! No need to pull out the culinary dictionary; your vocabulary lesson lies right here in this article!

Beer Pairings for the Week of August 22nd, 2016

Why do Belgian Wits have coriander? Herbs and spices have been added to beer for a long time as a flavor additive and as a preservative. Hops do preserve beer but they aren't traditionally used to preserve wit beer. For a wit beer, coriander is the better choice. Summer garden dishes are made for a wheat beer, so pair this dish of sweet pepper and zucchini with a wit.

A Second Life for Food Scraps

After a cheerful morning spent among the vibrant vendors lush with the colorful spectrum of their seasonal fruit and vegetable offerings, and then a few hours chopping, peeling, and preparing those selections into toothsome homemade meals, you’re left pleasantly without hunger and contented….almost. There’s a small mountain of vegetal scraps on your counter and your compost bin has been overflowing for weeks; what’s a responsible food consumer and alleged keeper of a clean kitchen to do?
