Example text

In fact, those familiar with spicebush often call it Appalachian allspice (which is how Chris markets it as well). Though folks around these parts use dried spicebush berries in the same manner they would use allspice, I find the flavors quite different. Allspice has strong notes of clove and nutmeg, and a hint of cinnamon. While I certainly detect freshly shaved nutmeg when I bite into a dried spicebush berry, I predominantly get a albany, ohio: way down yonder | 29 powerful kick of black pepper, which quickly gives way to citronella (think Lemon Pledge—the furniture polish).

Albany, ohio: way down yonder | 23 Midway through the tasting, the judges discovered what they thought was going to be the sure winner. This fruit exhibited a sweet complexity in its perfume, with a fantastic flavor profile, tasting like mango, peach, and a hint of vanilla cream. The moderator passed the pawpaw around for the audience to sample, and we all agreed: this was one dang good fruit. And it was, unsurprisingly, wild. But it was the second to last entry that blew away the competition. Not only was it a handsome fruit on the outside, but inside, the pulp had a color and texture like soft butter.

When the scallops are sufficiently seared, they will “let go” of the pan. Flip the scallops and sear the other side. Transfer the seared scallops to a warm platter while searing the other batches. Plate the scallops and drizzle with the Pawpaw Buerre Blanc. Serve with a simple pasta (like linguine), and your favorite wilted greens. ” The flavors are so luxurious, you might think this recipe should be reserved for special occasions. But the ingredients and preparation are so accessible, this works as a fine Tuesday night meal.
