This is one of my favorite chili recipes, with a secret nutritional boost from canned pumpkin! You can adapt the recipe to use what you have on hand. No ground beef? Use ground turkey, chicken or even leave the meat out, just add an extra can of beans. No kidney beans? Mix it up and use pintos, black beans or garbanzos.

Craisin' About You No Knead Bread

Craisin' About You No Knead Bread

Craisin' About You No Knead Bread
This heart shaped, no knead craisin bread is a delicious introduction to bread baking. I have baked the original no-knead bread recipe from Jim Leahey many times and this recipe is inspired by both that recipe and by Sally's Baking Addiction Homemade Artisan Bread.
Servings Prep Time
1 loaf 5 minutes
Cook Time Passive Time
20 minutes 24-72 hours
Ingredients
  • 3-1/4 cups King Arthur All Purpose Flour, unbleached
  • 2 teaspoons Red Star Platinum Yeast
  • 2 teaspoons Kosher Salt
  • 1 cup Dried cranberries
  • 1-1/2 cups Water, room temperature
Servings: loaf
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, mix together flour, yeast, salt and dried cranberries with a wooden spoon. Pour in water and continue mixing to incorporate, scraping sides of the bowl with a rubber scraper. The dough will look weird, shaggy and dry, then it will be sticky. Don't fret, its okay, that's the way it should look. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let rise 2 hours at room temperature, then refrigerate overnight or longer (I actually got busy and let mine ferment 3 days, its fine!)
  2. When ready to bake, place Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan or baking stone on middle rack of your oven. Also, place an empty broiler pan on the bottom rack of oven (you will use this pan to create steam). Preheat oven to 475 degrees. You want your oven and pans to be hot, hot, hot!
  3. Remove dough from refrigerator to floured work surface. Shape dough with floured hands into a long baguette, wider in the middle with tapered ends. Cut the long loaf in two, the wider part will be the top of your heart, the tapered ends will be the bottom of the heart loaf.
    4. Gently merge the heart together, working to seam the middle together and gently pinching to make a heart shape, using extra bench flour as needed. Use a bench scraper to help you transfer your heart loaf to a piece of parchment paper. Cover with a bit of floured plastic wrap and a clean dish towel, let rise 45 minutes.
    5. Boil 1 cup of water and set aside. When its time to bake, uncover dough and use a sharp serrated bread knife to make two diagonal cuts in the bread. Use a a pizza peel or upside down baking sheet to quickly transfer to the hot Lodge Cast Iron Pizza Pan or baking stone, then pour the cup of hot water into the empty broiler pan that's on the bottom of the oven to create steam. Quickly close the oven door.
    6. Bake for 20 minutes or until bread is golden brown and has an internal temperature of at least 190 degrees. I use an instant read Thermapen for bread baking and cooking.
    7. Remove to wire rack and cool slightly before cutting and slathering with butter and Unicoi Preserves.

Suzy's Significant Trifle Cake

Suzy's Significant Trifle Cake

 

 

A beautiful, delicious and no cook dessert that's easy to make using Ingles bakery pound cake and Unicoi Preserves.
Servings Prep Time
25 people 30 minutes
Ingredients

  • 1 3.4 oz.


    Jello Instant Cheesecake Pudding Mix

  • 2 cups


    Milk

  • 1 loaf size


    Ingles bakery pound cake

  • 4 oz.


    Unicoi Preserves Vineyard Spread

  • 12 oz.


    Laura Lynn frozen raspberries

  • 16 oz. bag


    Murray Ginger Snaps

  • 16 oz.


    Laura Lynn Whipped Topping, thawed

Servings: people
Instructions
  1. Make pudding with 2 cups of milk, following the package directions, set aside.
    Slice pound cake in thirds lengthwise using a serrated bread knife and separate slices on a cutting board.
  2. Spread Unicoi Preserves over the bottom layer of cake, stack the middle piece on top, spread it with Unicoi Preserves and add the top piece of cake. You probably won’t use all the Unicoi Preserves in this step, but you can use what’s left in the jar when you build the trifle.
    3. Cut one inch (approximate) slices of cake, then cut carefully into cubes. If the pieces crumble a little, that’s ok, no one will know!
    4. Place half the Unicoi Preserve filled cake cubes in the bottom of a trifle bowl. Spoon half of the leftover preserves around the edges of the trifle bowl so you see the preserves from the outside of the bowl.
    5. Spoon half the pudding over the cake cubes.
    6. Add half the frozen raspberries over the pudding.
    7. Place about half the gingersnaps in a zip top bag and crush them. I use my rolling pin but a cast iron skillet works too. Sprinkle some of the gingersnap pieces over the raspberries, then use some of the uncrushed gingersnaps to line the outside edge of the trifle bowl.
    8. Spoon in a generous amount of whipped topping, then repeat layers, reserving a few raspberries for the top.
    9. Cover and refrigerate or serve immediately. I have made this a day ahead and it was delicious!

Cherry Bombs

Cherry Bombs

Cherry Bombs
A delicious mash-up between two classic appetizers, the jalapeno popper and sausage cheese balls.
Servings Prep Time
24 servings 30 minutes
Cook Time
25 minutes
Ingredients
  • 12 whole jalapenos
  • 8 ounces fresh ground pork sausage
  • 8 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup Bisquick baking mix
  • 1/4 cup Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon Lane's BBQ Magic Dust rub
  • 1 jar Unicoi Preserves Cherry Jalapeno Spread
Servings: servings
Instructions
Grilling Preparation
  1. Set up your grill for direct grilling and preheat to 400 degrees. Cut the jalapenos in half lengthwise and remove the seeds and ribs. I like to use a small spoon to scoop out the inside of the peppers. Grate the cheese. I prefer to use an aged sharp white cheddar cheese for this recipe. Cabot 3 year aged white cheddar is an ideal choice.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine the sausage, grated cheese, Bisquick, milk and Magic Dust and mix thoroughly by hand to combine the ingredients. Stuff the prepared peppers with the sausage mixture, packing it in firmly. I like to overfill the peppers slightly, mounding the mixture into the pepper half. Continue until all peppers are stuffed.
    3. Place peppers on the pre-heated grill and cook for 15-20 minutes, until the sausage mixture is dark golden brown and jalapenos are slightly charred. Glaze the top of the peppers with Cherry Jalapeno Spread and cook an additional 2 minutes to set the glaze. Remove from the grill and serve immediately.
    Oven Preparation
    1. Alternatively, you can prepare these in your oven. Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Place the prepared peppers on a foil lined cookie sheet and bake on the middle rack 15-20 minutes, until the sausage mixture is dark golden brown. Glaze the peppers with Cherry Jalapeno Spread and cook an additional 2 minutes to set the glaze.

Sourdough Bagels

Sourdough Bagels

Sourdough Bagels
Confession: I have a sourdough starter named Clyde that's very neglected. When I first learned about Red Star Platinum Instant Sourdough Yeast at the National Festival of Breads, I could hardly contain my excitement! This product is a breakthrough for people like me who want the flavor of authentic sourdough culture without the hassle of maintaining a sourdough starter. Homemade sourdough bagels are the perfect Unicoi Preserves delivery device and are surprisingly easy to make. This recipe is adapted from King Arthur Flour.
Servings Prep Time
16 bagels 30 minutes
Cook Time
20-25 minutes
Ingredients
Bagel dough
  • 1 pack Red Star Yeast Platinum Instant Sourdough Yeast
  • 5 3/4 cups King Arthur All Purpose Flour, unbleached
  • 1/4 cup Carnation Malted Milk Powder, Original
  • 2 tablespoons sugar, granulated
  • 1 tablespoon Kosher Salt
  • 2 cups warm water, 120-130 degrees
Water bath
  • 2 quarts water
  • 2 tablespoons Carnation Malted Milk Powder, Original
  • 1 tablespoon Sugar
Bagel Toppings
  • 1 egg white, whisked with 1 tablespoon water
  • Options: sesame seeds
  •  poppy seeds
  •  everything bagel seasoning
  •  coarse or pretzel salt
Servings: bagels
Instructions
  1. Add all dry ingredients to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with dough hook and mix to combine. Slowly add warm water and mix on slow speed until combined, then increase mixer speed to medium and continue kneading until dough is smooth, scraping sides of the bowl occasionally. This took me about 5 minutes. If your dough is pooling at the bottom of the mixing bowl, add a small amount of flour, 1 tablespoon at a time.
  2. Shape the dough into a ball and place into a large bowl lightly greased with vegetable oil. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, 1 to 1 1/2 hours.
    3. While dough is rising, get your water bath ready. Measure all water bath ingredients into a Dutch oven or shallow wide pan at least 3" deep. Stir and bring to boil, cover and reduce to low simmer while you form the bagels.
    4.After dough has risen, gently deflate it and transfer to a work surface that's been light sprayed with non-stick cooking spray. I like to use a silicone pastry mat for this. Prepare two baking sheets by lining with parchment paper or silicone baking sheets. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
    5.Divide dough into 16 similar size pieces, then shape them one at a time. Roll dough into a ball, then poke a hole in the middle with your finger and stretch it out by twirling the dough to form a ring. Hint: Make the hole a bit bigger then you think, knowing it will puff up and rise. Place each bagel on the baking sheet as you form them.
    6. After forming all the bagels, its time for them to go into the water bath. Remove the lid from the Dutch oven and gently lower 3 or 4 at a time into water. Set a timer for 1 minute and simmer for 30 seconds a side. I used a long stainless slotted spatula to turn them but a slotted spoon or spider will work too. Return them to the baking sheet after boiling.
    7.Brush the bagels with the egg wash, then sprinkle with any toppings you like. I topped some of mine with black and white sesame seed and others with sriracha sesame seeds. Poppy seeds, coarse salt, everything bagel season are all great options but use what you like.
    8.Bake bagels for 20 - 25 minutes until they are deep golden brown. I rotated my baking sheets half way through. Remove from oven and cool on a rack.
    9. Serve warm or at room temperature with cream cheese and Unicoi Preserves. Store at room temperature or freeze to extend the happiness.

The Perfect Margarita

The Perfect Margarita

The Perfect Margarita
A smooth and delicious cocktail using reposado tequila. "Reposado" means rested or restful, meaning the tequila has been aged two months to a year in oak. Aging in white oak gives the tequila a mellow flavor combined with the flavor of blue agave, making reposado the ideal tequila to choose for The Perfect Margarita.
Ingredients
  • 8 oz. Key lime juice
  • 8 oz. Simple syrup
  • 6 oz. Reposado tequila
  • 2 oz. Orange Liqueur
  • 1 Lime, sliced in wedges for garnish
  •  Coarse salt to rim glasses, if desired
Servings:
Instructions
  1. Pour lime juice, simple syrup, tequila and orange liqueur in to a quart size canning jar. Screw lid on jar securely and shake well.
  2. Moisten the rim of each glass with a piece of lime, then roll the rim evenly in coarse salt, if desired. Fill glass half full of crushed ice and pour margarita over ice.
  3. Garnish with a fresh lime slice.
  4. Relax and enjoy with Unicoi Preserves, cheese, charcuterie, crusty bread and friends.
  5. Tip: To make a simple syrup, just mix equal parts sugar and water together in a sauce pan and heat it until the sugar is dissolved. For example, heat 1 cup of water and stir in 1 cup sugar until dissolved. Refrigerate until cold. We like to make a large batch and keep it on hand in the refrigerator in a mason jar.
