okey dokey I gotta try this since seeds are involved [Big Grin] [Big Grin]

Couscous Salad

2 cups good stock
3/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 cup couscous
1 medium carrot, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 small red onion, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 small red bell pepper, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 small cucumber or zucchini, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1 small Granny Smith apple, cut into 1/4 inch dice
1/3 cup currants or raisins
1-2 cups canned chick peas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

In a heavy medium saucepan, whisk together the stock, cinnamon,
ginger, cumin, and turmeric. Add the couscous in a slow steady stream,
stirring constantly, and continue to boil, stirring, for 1 minute.
Cover the pot tightly, remove from the heat and let stand for 15
minutes.

Fluff the couscous grains with a fork, transfer to a large mixing bowl
and let cool. Then fluff again, rubbing with your fingers to break up
any lumps.

Add the carrot, bell pepper, cucumber, onion, apple, currants and
chick peas and toss.

In a small jar with a lid, shake the remaining 1/2 tablespoon olive
oil with the lemon juice, salt and pepper until well mixed. Pour over
the salad and toss well. Cover and refrigerate for several hours or
up to 3 days. Season with additional salt, pepper and lemon juice to

I found this recipe on the web Tammy...Maybe you can use it???? I am interested in the Orange Onion Rosemary salad..sounds yummy and this might be close????

Tangerine-Rosemary Salad
1/2 cup fresh tangerine juice or orange juice
1/2 tsp. minced rosemary
1/2 small shallot, minced
1/4 C + 2 Tbl. Extra Virgin Olive oil
2 Tbl. Champagne vinegar
2 large tangerines or oranges
2 tsp. honey
4 cups (packed) mixed tender greens

Combine juice, shallot, vinegar, honey, rosemary and oil. Mix or shake well. Peel tangerines and slice thin. Cut slices into quarters. Wash and dry greens. Add tangerine slices to greens. Mix vinaigrette again and add to greens, mixing gently.

I would probable use Balsamic vinegar

by tkhooper on March 20, 2006 10:09 PM
Hey Comfrey thanks for joining the treasure hunt. I agree the balsamic vinegar would be best for that recipe.

Angelbloosom, please send me all your special hints and tips. They will go very well with what I've been gathering. We'll have to trade electronic cookbooks when I get mine finished.

OK, Ladies and Gents the treasure hunt will be closing on Friday morning so check those recipe books and call great aunt martha so we can get all of these recipes in the cookbook.

This is shaping up wonderfully with all your help.

The seed choices will be made this way. The person who submits the most recipes will get first pick of my personal stash of seeds then the person with the second most recipes entered will get to pick and so on like that. I have to do that because in most cases I only have one packet of seeds of each type of plant. In case of ties it will be random who goes first before the other person.

I looked up cocoa van and couldn't really find anything but then found an article that said that cocoa van was a french recipe and it was called "Coq Au Vin" so I tried that and found a TON of stuff! I found this neat crockpot recipe that seems really easy...I hope it's what you're looking for!
Coq Au Vin
2 1/2 lb. chicken, cut-up

1 clove garlic, crushed

1 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

1/2 t. dried thyme leaves

6 bacon slices, diced

2/3 C. sliced green onions

1 C. chicken broth

8 small white onions, peeled

1 C. Burgundy wine

1/2 lb. whole mushrooms

chopped parsley

8 small new potatoes, scrubbed

In large skillet, saute diced bacon and green onions until bacon is crisp. Remove and drain on paper towel.

Add chicken pieces to skillet and brown well on all sides. Remove the chicken when it has browned and set aside.

Put peeled onions, mushrooms, potatoes, and garlic in crockpot. Add browned chicken pieces, bacon and green onions, salt, pepper, thyme, potatoes and chicken broth.

sorel sauce
2 tsp softened butter
2 tsp flour
1/4 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup chopped sorrel

Set the skillet with poaching liquid on the stove top over high heat, and reduce by half (about 5 minutes).
Mash flour and butter together into a smooth paste.
After the liquid has reduced, turn the heat down to low and whisk the butter paste into it until smooth. Turn up the heat and bring to a boil, stirring until the sauce thickens, 1-2 minutes.
Stir in the cream, bring to a boil stirring constantly. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Take off heat, and stir in sorrel.

Miss Jamie on the Sorel Sauce recipe. How much "poaching liquid" are we talking about. I'm confused. I'd love to include the recipe but I think there is a bit of information missing.
