Natives, And A Classic
"Natives"..not brook trout but those fine vegetables and fruits that are local. I am very lucky to have two very good farms within a couple of miles of home. One of the farms I visited the other day has lots of native produce on sale right now. I saw these beautiful yellow summer squash and picked up a few. This can be steamed or sliced and baked with seasoned bread crumbs. I got to talking with the owner and was told that the native sweet corn would be available around July forth. Corn is one of my favorite summer veggies.
"Got Sausage"....if not make some. I had some country style pork ribs in the fridge. I took them out and removed the bone. Then took a knife and cut them into the desired size. There is no need to grind the meat especially for this amount. Then some simple seasonings, salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and a drop or two of wine. Fennel seed can be also added, some like it and others find it undesirable for various reasons.
Get yourself a handful and form patties. Grill them crispy in some spots for that distinctive flavor and texture.
When done serve along side a hot pepper and a salad and "wow"...they are also great for breakfast.
A New England Classic
"Moxie" if you have not tried this drink please do. It is a favorite of mine.
