Raspberries with Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia

I cannot claim this recipe as my own. Miriam brought me some Aceto Balsamico Tradizionale di Reggio Emilia when she came back from Italy. I was under strict instructions never to use this vinegar in a salad dressing. The Acetaria San Giacomo’s website had photos to show off their products and one was of raspberries with vinegar and a light dusting of powdered sugar. This was clearly an acceptable use of “the good stuff.”

Karl’s California Fusion Pork Adobo

Base on Ultra Rich Caramelized Filipino Pork Adobo

I was originally going to call this a Filipino adobo, but I served it to Eilene’s friend from the Philippines.  While it was “…good, it is not Filipino pork adobo.” It was too sweet and who puts vegetables in a meat dish like adobo?

Karl’s Persian Refrigerator Pickles

Surf-and-turf is a high protein meal that begs for a variety of interesting vegetables. I decided to make some quick pickles for Miriam’s birthday party this Saturday. I thought some sweet and sour pickles will offset the grilled vegetable dishes I am making.

OOPS: I just caught the typo. Ummm, tastes like pork.

Karl’s Mission Fig Balsamic Asparagus

Jan and I went to the farmer’s market yesterday and she fell in love with Big Paw’s Mission Fig Balsamic Vinegar.  The question was what to do with it. We had already decided that we were going to have a Deli-dinner (fresh bread, cheese, cold meat, salad etc.) Jan had already gotten some heirloom carrots for carrot salad, so what were we going to do with the new vinegar?
