Fresh, slivered strawberries mixed into pasta salad. You can even mix it into fettuchini Alfredo. Though if you do that, best to offset it with some fresh shredded spinach or chard.

RE: Cooking with fruit
Run an apple or a firm pear through a cheese grater and add it to any soup or stew. Adds a little sweetness, and all the apple or pear just melts in and add some soupy goodness. (not to mention a nutrient boost!)

I've been slow cooking beef stew all day. I wish I had some cherries. Hm, wonder what frozen blueberries would do. Consider

RE: Cooking with fruit
They will work great actually. But add them thawed, as you eat. Since they've been frozen they will thaw out very mushy, so just in case, best to test on the first bowl instead of the whole batch.

Awesomeness. And the gravy is stellar.


I am going to roast one as soon as I get to the kitchen. And I have apples and pears at hand as well as garlic. I will try it!

RE: Cooking with fruit
Awesome!

I find lots of stuff to use apples for this time of year. I have neighbors begging me to take garbage bags full. What I did this year was told them all yes. Then I picked through (had about four and a half bags of sweet apples and two of sour apples) and found all the really nice, unbruised ones. I wrap those loosely in newspaper and keep them in the dark basement. They'll keep for six or eight weeks. That was about one full bag, so I'm left with lots to make applesauce, and do all the cooking I can with them while they last. Gonna be pretty sick of apples soon.......nah, I never get sick of them.

RE: Cooking with fruit
Iranians are masters at cooking meat dishes with fruit. One of the most famous dishes in Persian cuisine is fesenjaan--a stew of duck or chicken in a pomegranate and walnut sauce. SO good. It's actually not made with fresh pomegranate seeds but rather with a pomegranate reduction--kind of a pomegranate molasses--that's found in most Middle Eastern groceries.

There are also some wonderful rice pilafs with fruit--zereshk polow, that incredibly delicate long-grained Persian rice cooked with barberries, and aalbaaloo polow, the same rice cooked with sour cherries. Yum!
