Reap applause with fall harvest treats
It's a wise host or hostess who in-
terjects some nutritional aware-
ness into menu-planning and
homemade food gifts.
For example, add wholesome-
ness and variety to the stuffing for
the "holiday bird" by using a
kasha (buckwheat) pilaf. It's very
nutritious with a nutty aroma.
Made with chicken soup or chic-
ken broth, the pilaf is flavorsome
cooked separately when you pre-
fer to roast poultry unstuffed and
serve the stuffing as a sidedish.
It's generally considered a safer
practice to roast large turkeys un-
One of the latest "in" desserts is
creme brulee and other variations
of custard desserts. We've mod-
ified a custard-dessert classic by
adding creamy buckwheat cereal
and fruit to a smooth custard base.
Decorated with fruit and served
with apricot sauce accented with
liqueur, if you like,.it is definitely
a special dessert.
For many cooks, the holiday
season marks their once-a-year
candy-making activity. Even
"sweet tooth" treats can be given a
little nutritional boost. Medium
granulation uncooked kasha adds
crunch and nutrients to a crispy
toffee-flavored brittle that can be
offered plain or topped with a thin
layer of chocolate. The crispy brit-
tle is somewhat similar to honey-
sesame candies sometimes avail-
able where health foods are sold.
