This special weekend we’ll be celebrating new life, both in the Resurrection of Christ and the coming of spring. May it be a blessed time for each of you and your families.
Need some healthful ideas for your holiday table? Dress it up with the bright colors that are associated with the season! I like to emphasize yellow, so how about a large organic yellow pepper as a classy dish for dip? Remove part of one side (along with the seeds) and fill the pepper with organic guacamole or roasted red pepper hummus. Great accompaniment for a tray of fresh organic veggies.
Devilled eggs are always attractive and popular. Mix free-range, hard-boiled egg yolks with finely chopped organic celery, chopped organic green onions if desired, and enough non-soy, non GMO mayo and organic yellow mustard to make the mixture moist. Use a pastry decorator tip to fill the whites. Decorate the tray with parsley or sprigs of any other fresh herbs.
If you’re a lemon lover, this old-time recipe still has plenty of ap”peel”!
6 large or jumbo free-range eggs (not vegetarian or soy-fed; chickens are omnivores)
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup raw clover honey – or any mild-flavored honey
grated rind of 2-3 organic lemons – about 4 tbsp.
juice of 3 organic lemons – about 1/2 cup of juice
Set up a double boiler and get the water boiling. Cut the butter into pieces and place it in the top of the double boiler to melt, along with the honey. Grate the juice and lemons, and beat the eggs very well to make them totally smooth (I use a blender). Add eggs, lemon rind and lemon juice to double boiler, and mix everything together well with a wooden spoon. Continue stirring over the boiling water for about 10 minutes , or until mixture is thick and smooth. Remove from heat. Store in a jar in the refrigerator. Makes about 3 cups.
For Easter, use this “pudding” to create beautiful parfaits, layering it with berries, sliced bananas, and whipped cream. It can also be used alone as a dessert in glass dishes, or as a spread or filling. Very adaptable – and totally delicious!
