"Beet Rosti" or Beet Pancake (Hold the Syrup)

From South Cumberland Farmer's Market

<p>I love Mark Bittman&#8217;s recipes, especially his attention to creative meatless recipes. Here&#8217;s one I recently discovered:</p> <p></p> <p><span class="caps">THE</span> <span class="caps">MINIMALIST</span>; Beet Pancakes (Hold the Syrup)<br /> By Mark Bittman<br /> Published: June 17, 1998</p> <p><span class="caps">ALTHOUGH</span> sweetness is not an unfamiliar sensation at the dinner table, no so-called savory food gives quite the experience of the beet, whose intensity is incomparable. This has typically led cooks to counter its sweetness with acidity or other sharp flavors, a natural inclination that has given us beets with vinegar, beets with sour cream, beets with lemon, vinaigrette, ginger, and so on.</p> <p>But the sweetness of beets is wonderfully exploited in this dish, created by Michael Romano, the chef at Union Square Cafe. It&#8217;s a thick beet pancake, cooked slowly until the beet sugars caramelize and a crunchy, sweet crust forms, reminiscent of creme brulee. A touch of rosemary does not diminish the sweetness, but simply adds a dimension to this versatile side dish, which is good with braised meats or grilled food or can accompany a salad as a light dinner.</p> <p>The concept and technique are unusual for beets, although they are identical to those used in rosti, the Swiss grated-potato dish. The beets are peeled and grated raw; the grating disk of a food processor does this task easily, but a box grater also works. The beets are then combined with flour, an essential ingredient. &#8216;&#8217;The beet resembles a potato, and you can cook it like a potato,&#8217;&#8217; Mr. Romano said. &#8216;&#8217;But it doesn&#8217;t have the starch of a potato, and if you don&#8217;t add some flour, the pancake won&#8217;t hold together.&#8217;&#8217;</p> <p>In this dish, butter is the fat of choice; it complements the beets perfectly. If you choose to substitute, use a neutral oil like canola rather than strong-tasting olive oil. The beet rosti must be cooked in a nonstick skillet, preferably one measuring 12 inches across. (If you have a 10-inch skillet, decrease the amount of beets from two pounds to one and a half; the quantities given for the other ingredients can remain the same.) And keep the heat moderate. Cooking too quickly will burn the sugary outside of the pancake while leaving the inside raw.</p> <p>Beets bleed and can easily stain clothing. Peel them over the sink, and wash the grater as soon as you are finished with it. Oh, and wear an apron.</p> Vegetarian!

Almond Berry Coffee Cake

From Statesboro Market2Go

<p>This cake is <span class="caps">AMAZING</span>. With that said what makes it so amazing is its moist, streusely, seasonal berry goodness. Since the blackberries have been so incredible this season from Jacobs Produce, I decided to share this recipe in lieu of the ending season. However, any in season berry will work just fine. Here we come blueberries!</p>
