Add candle light and good friends…

Roots and Beef Brisket

28 Jan

3 potatoes, thick-sliced
1 carrot, thin-sliced
(rutubagas, turnips, parsnips, celeriac would be great)

2 celery ribs, sliced
1 corned beef brisket, 1.5 lbs
half a cabbage
1/4 t pepper
3/4 cup water

Get a crockpot.  (This recipe’s for a small ‘pot.)  Potato & carrots on the bottom, then brisket, then cabbage wedges.  Pepper on top, add water.  Cover & cook on low for 8 hrs.

Roasted Roots

30 Nov
ANY kind of winter root (potatoes, carrots, parsnips, beets, turnips, rutabagas, garlic, celeriac)
Try roots that you don’t like otherwise – you may love them like this. My daughter will eat a whole plate of beets cooked this way.
 
Wash (I don’t peel) and then cut up roots. I like thin slices, other people like little chunks.  Oil or butter a big cookie tray and put the roots on the tray – pour on some more oil and some salt.  The roots shrink when they are baked, so put a lot on the tray. I usually do 2 trays worth at a time because they get eaten so fast!
 
Bake at 350 and turn the roots every once in a while to ensure even cooking and to spread the oil around.  They are done when they are soft, but I like to leave them in so that they caramelize a bit.
