Cabbage and Beet Ferment
If you’ve never made your own fermented foods, now is a great time to get started. With hearty winter veggies, this cabbage and beet ferment is a great introduction to home fermenting! It’s as easy as combining salt and time with your favorite veggies. Beneficial bacteria will get to work making nutrients more bioavailable and creating a fizzy tart flavor. You can start tasting the mixture after about one week. When it is as sour as you like, it’s done!

Thai Coconut Soup
January is National Soup Month, and this Thai Coconut Soup deserves a spot in your meal plan. This recipe relies on pantry staples, so you can make a batch whenever the mood strikes. Garlic, ginger, and chili flakes bring an exciting depth of flavor that enhances the jarred curry paste. You can always turn up the heat or dial it back by adjusting the curry paste and chili flakes to suit your taste. Don’t forget, the coconut milk adds a nice creaminess that balances the heat.

Recipes

Maple Caramel Popcorn
Like a cross between peanut brittle and kettle corn, this sweet treat is better than anything you might find in a tin. It would be equally at home at your next cookie swap or during a movie night at home. The depth of flavor you get from maple syrup is perfectly balanced with a touch of sea salt and crunchy peanuts. It will feed a crowd, but make sure it’s fully cooled, store it in an airtight container for up to two weeks. We doubt it will last that long though!

Puff Pastry Twists
These elegant puff pastry twists are as easy as they are delicious. They’re equally good at home served as a crunchy side to a comforting bowl of tomato soup as they are on the most elaborate charcuterie spread. Remembering to thaw the frozen puff pastry is the hardest thing you’ll have to handle to pull these off. Feel free to explore additional fillings like prepared pesto, Asiago or Pecorino Romano cheese, everything bagel seasoning, or even cinnamon sugar for a sweet twist.

Shrimp Ramen Noodles
Making a flavorful shrimp ramen is easy when you use the shells! Make sure you buy shell-on shrimp, which are usually cheaper anyway, and make a quick stock. Using the shells to extract even more flavor is the best way to get the most from high quality ingredients. Aromatics like lemongrass, ginger, and garlic add flavor to the wonderful broth. You’ll get more flavor from this 15-minute stock than you will from any flavor packet. Take it to the next level with a soft-boiled egg or sheets of nori to complete the ramen experience.

Hot Cocoa Drink Mix
Whether you’re stocking up for a winter of hot cocoa or you want to make a homemade gift your host will actually use, this hot cocoa drink mix is sure to please. You can scale this recipe up or down depending on how much cocoa you need. For the perfect holiday gift, make a double or triple batch and use decorative jars to elevate this simple homemade treat into a welcome gift. Make sure you include short instructions for your recipient!

How To Cook a Turkey

Turkey Time!

Prepping and cooking a turkey can be a daunting task – but with this guide, (including a cook time chart according to weight), you’ll be a pro in no time.
  1. Rinse the turkey (fresh or defrosted) well and pat dry before seasoning and dressing.
  2. Preheat oven to 450°F. Place turkey into a roasting pan with the breast up and tie legs together.
  3. Season the turkey using melted butter and your choice of herbs. Make sure to get the butter and seasoning under the skin but be careful not to tear it.
  4. Cook for approximately 20 minutes, until light browning occurs, then reduce oven temperature to 350°F for remaining cooking time. Cooking time is weight-based: plan for approximately 12-14 minutes per pound of turkey. (see chart below)
  5. Baste every 15-20 minutes and rotate the pan every half hour.
  6. Bake until inner temperature is 165°F at the thickest point. For a true temperature, insert meat thermometer into the thigh and push into the densest part of the breast.
  7. Don’t forget to check the stuffing (if using). It should also be 165°F.
  8. Once at temperature, remove from oven. Let turkey rest for 20 minutes before slicing. Reserve the pan drippings to make your gravy…or pick some up from RT’s grab and go (we won’t tell)!

Squash Preparation

With the abundance of winter squash available, you might wonder the best (or perhaps easiest) ways to prepare the many varieties. Read on for the simplest roasting and cooking methods. You can also follow our guide to learn more about the plentiful squash available now at RT. When picking your squash, they should be heavy for their size and have a dull appearance. They should also be firm to the touch with no soft spots, bruises or cuts. If squash are cut, the flesh should have a moist appearance.

How to cook squash in the oven:

  • Bake a smaller squash whole by piercing the skin with a knife in several places or by cutting it in half and removing the seeds and fibers. Place it whole, or halves with cut sides up, in an ungreased baking pan or dish.
  • If baking halves, add about 1/4-inch water to the pan. Dot squash halves with butter, and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  • Bake at 350°F for 45 to 60 minutes, depending on the size and variety of the squash. Cool slightly.
  • If whole, cut open and remove seeds and fibers after baking. Remove skin.

How to cook squash on the stove-top:

  • Peel squash, and cut into 1-inch cubes or slices.
  • To boil, cover and cook in 1-inch boiling water 10 to 15 minutes or until tender.
  • To steam, place steamer basket in ½-inch water in saucepan or skillet; add squash. Cover tightly and heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Steam cubes seven to 10 minutes, for slices steam 12 to 15 minutes.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place chopped potatoes in a small saucepan covered with water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a gentle boil and cook until tender. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium-low. Add onion and sauté until translucent. Stir in ginger, jalapeño, and spices, cook for 1 minute. Remove from heat.
  3. Add potatoes, peas, cilantro, lemon juice, and salt to the onion mixture and stir to combine. Set aside to cool.
  4. Cut dough into 10 pieces and roll into balls. Roll each dough ball into a 5-inch round disk and place 3-4 tablespoons of filling in the center. Brush edges with beaten egg and fold the dough over. Crimp edge with the tines of a fork and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
  5. Brush each pasty with beaten egg and sprinkle on sesame seeds. Bake for 30-35 minutes or until crust is golden.
