Once again it's Three Things Thursday, where I highlight three things that ran on the site recently that inspired, intrigued or impressed me. This time, I'm focusing on the treats of the season on this spooky day.
Turnip Jam for Halloween
In Scotland the Jack O'Lantern was traditionally made from a turnip, not a pumpkin. So here is a Halloween recipe for a tasty and different jam made from this seasonal veggie, the turnip (or neeps as they call them in Scotland). From Larder Love
, who also has a nice piece on pretty pink pickled turnips
Apple Date Chutney
A small batch recipe for an autumnal apple chutney -- and here's the trick -- sweetened with just dates and dried currants. From Food in Jars
Sumac Iced Tea
Growing up in the Northeast, I remember always being enchanted by the fuzzy clusters of drupes on sumac plants that grew rampantly in fields in my hometown. Cubit's Organics
shows us how to harvest them, and make them into a puckeringly tart and refreshing iced tea.
