Fresh From Florida

One of the best things about snowbirding in Florida is the Fresh From Florida produce!! There is fresh produce all year long down here, and you can tell by the labeling and packaging that it was grown in Florida. When we hit the local Farmer’s market, it simply says just that: local from Florida (and then they usually have the address of the farm listed somewhere). And when we hit the grocery store, we find the labeled Fresh From Florida fruits and vegetables, as well as locally grown signs.

There are also local markets for seafood, as well as in-store labeled Fresh From Florida seafood. And it just tastes better. Remember my post about Sonny-boy and Hubby ocean fishing and bringing back all that fresh sea bass? Well, one of the best things about being down here is you can buy fresh, local fish at a fish market store, or in the grocery store. Heck, even the restaurants have a “local catch of the day” when we order. If you ever have the opportunity to do some ocean fishing or buy the local Florida seafood when out in the grocery store or restaurant, do it. You will be really glad you did.

For this recipe, we purchased Fresh From Florida tomatoes and peppers – both green and colored sweet peppers – produce at the local WalMart and Winn Dixie. Just look for the Fresh From Florida signs and on package stickers in the produce section so you can be sure you are buying Fresh From Florida produce!

Prosciutto Asparagus Spears Recipe

Mmmm anyone else adore a good prosciutto wrapped asparagus appetizer? I know I sure do! Prosciutto wrapped anything is mighty tasty. Prosciutto is an Italian dry-cured ham and there are many prosciutto wrapped recipes (mostly for dates and asparagus), but for me, the winner is asparagus. The mix of the two is simply delicious.

There are probably a bazillion different recipes for prosciutto wrapped asparagus – the simplest being… prosciutto and asparagus. The differences are in the seasonings, although I have also seen cheese, apples, and phyllo dough recipes. I have seen Prosciutto Asparagus Spears recipes for grilled, boiled, baked, blanched, and steamed asparagus. But for me, this recipe for Prosciutto Asparagus Spears is about as easy as it gets while adding just a touch of extra seasoning.

I hope you enjoy!

Note: this recipe serves two. If you would like more servings (say as a party appetizer or dinner side dish), just multiply the ingredients by the number of servings desired.

Homemade White Bread Recipe


Homemade White Bread Recipe

There is nothing that tastes as good as fresh, warm, homemade bread. Nothing. It is simpler than you think to make homemade white bread. This soft and delicious homemade white bread recipe is great for sandwiches, toast, stuffing or to eat alone.

Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 30 Minutes
Total Time: 3 Hours

Ingredients:

1 cup Warm Water
1 packet Active-dry Yeast (or 2 teaspoons)
2 TBSP Unsalted Butter, melted and cooled
1 cup Milk
2 TBSP Sugar
1 TBSP Salt
5½ cups All-purpose Flour

Directions:

• Pour warm water into a bowl (the bowl for your stand mixer works well), sprinkle yeast over the warm water (make sure water is not too hot) and let sit for about 5 minutes.
• Add in melted and cooled butter, milk, sugar and salt.
• Add 1 cup of flour and incorporate into the milk mixture. Add the other 4½ cups, 1 cup at a time. The bread dough will start to form. If you are using a stand mixture this is the time to switch to the hook and let it knead the dough for 10 minutes. If you are not using a mixer you can knead the dough by hand.
• If the dough is sticky add more flour one tablespoon at a time. Ideally, your dough will be smooth and will bounce back when poked.
• Oil a large bowl and form the dough into a ball. Cover the dough ball with a towel, and allow it to rest in a warm place, until the dough ball has risen and doubled in size; approximately one hour.
• Once the dough has risen, remove the dough from the warm place and divide the dough into two balls. Allow the separated dough balls to rest for approximately 15 minutes.
• Grease two bread loaf pans and shape each loaf in the loaf pan.
• Allow the dough to rise in the bread loaf pans, covered, for another 1½ hours. The dough should double in size.
• Preheat oven to 375°.
• Using a sharp knife, make a shallow slash down the length of the loaf (do not to cut too deeply into the dough).
• Bake in a 375° oven for 30 minutes, until the white bread is slightly browned (do not overbake!).
• Remove the baked homemade white bread loaves from the pan and allow to cool slightly before slicing.

• Makes 16 servings Homemade White Bread

• My great-grandmother (my father’s mother’s mother) was off the boat from Poland. She was a fantastic baker and cook. I remember her baking bread many times when we went to visit her at her home in Ohio (she did not pass away until I was 25! I spent a lot of time on her farm). My great-grandmother’s “warm place” to allow her bread to rise was under the down comforter on her bed!! For some reason I never found that strange, just where she placed her bread to rise. An old country tip!

• Store in a plastic bag at room temperature for a few days or freeze for a few months.
