    Saffron Rice

    in Cooking

    A dish I created years ago which I call saffron rice with spicy shrimp, the spices and saffron gives it a unique taste and the peppers make it hot and spicy while the yogurt cools it down (This recipe can be adjusted with fewer peppers if it’s too spicy).
    Ingredients you will need: 3 tbsp olive oil 2 pounds of shrimp (peeled) 2 yellow saffron long grain rice 10 oz bags 7 cups water 16 oz frozen green peas 5 green long hot peppers (chopped fine) 2 red hot pepper (chopped fine) 3 jalapeño peppers (chopped fine) 1 green pepper (chopped fine) 2 red peppers (chopped fine) 1 yellow pepper (chopped fine) 1 orange pepper (chopped fine) 1 large sweet onion (chopped fine) 1/2 tsp. salt 1/4 tsp. ground black pepper

    My Hand to Your Mouth

    in Cooking

    Not my usual political show, this is in the spirt of the pending holidays. I talk about how I grew up cooking, shopping, farming, and getting friendly with food. I am the main cook around here, have taught my wife and three sons, and love food and prep even more than politics.


    I reveal what passes for wisdom in my kitchen, why I frequent Boston's open-aitr Haymarket, things I learned in the fields with my Grandfdad Bill, and my relatiopnship with my food nemesis, Grandmother Mable. 


    Maybe I'll get into the necessity of well-stocked pantries and spice cabinets, and maybe my tips for saffron prep. I'm not sure yet.
