Flavors of Olde Cape Cod ~Cape Cod is known for Seafood mostly and of course Cranberries and Blueberries, lots of jellies and jams. Also stews and wild game. Corn breads of course as the Pilgrims had their fist Thanksgiving here. I still see alot of wild turkeys around today.

Did you know that?

Did you know that?
*Salted water boils faster
* A tablespoon of butter or oil added to the cooking water for pasta will keep the water from boiling over
* All vegetables that grow above the ground should be put on to cook in rapidly boiling water
* All vegetables that grow below the ground should be put on to cook in cold water *
* The addition of parsley in a recipe containing garlic will offset the aftertaste and odor.
*Ginger will accomplish the same thing in Oriental recipes.
*Whipped butter is more attractive, easier to spread, and one tends to use less. !
(although whipped butter is more expensive at the market, you can whip your own with your electric mixer and enjoy the difference without the expense.)
*Relishes were the colonial substitute for salads. To "eat with relish" as the saying goes, is to enjoy indeed, and Americans are the greatest users of relish in the world.

Making fudge for friend in hospital ~

My husband and I have a friend down in Cape Cod, well he is a fellow oyster buddy to my husband, last week he had a heart attack at 47 yrs old! He is still in the hospital and is paralyzed on the right side of his body, praying he will regain use , I always make him a Christmas plate and he loved my fudge , so my husband went into Boston to see him and he asked for the fudge ! How sad, feel so bad for him, you never know what tomorrow will bring, so it is a reminder to enjoy each day , isn't it? His name is Nate, keep him in your prayers please.
