Molho Apimentado

This delicious recipe is adapted from “Slow Cooker Revolution” by America’s Test Kitchen. The only changes I made were to add a little garlic and tweak the directions. The authors call it “Brazilian Hot Sauce,” or you could think of it as a salsa. I love it so much that I eat it more like…

Fresh Winter Salsa

Sometimes you just need a fresh salsa, even though it’s not fresh tomato season. Let’s face it, grocery store tomatoes can’t hold a candle to farmstand (or better yet, home-grown) tomatoes. I find that cherry tomatoes come closest to real tomato flavor in the winter, so I use them for my off-season salsa or guacamole.
