All the way from the Bahama's :-)
Conch, a sea-snail is used in many dishes like salads and stews. For a salad: "cut up conch, green pepper, tomato, onion and hot pepper. Mix it with lime juice and salt. Eat & enjoy!"
From Alex in the Ukraine: 'Ukrainian borsch'
The recipe (taken from back of the card):
Wash and skin beets, cut in fine slices. Sprinkle with fat and saute with condensed tomatoes, lemon juice or vinegar and sugar. Geritly saute finely cut onions, carrot and parsley in fat. Add dices potatoes to the simmering strained stock. Then add the sauteed beets to the stock together with the sauteed onions, the sauteed vegetable roots, and flour sauteed in a bit of stock. Simmer for 5 - 7 min. After this add finely sliced green cabbage and cook for 5 min. Season with pepper, a bay leaf, pounded or crushes cloves of garlic, greens and salt pork. Bring to a boil. Let stand for 10 - 15 min. Serve with sour cream, chopped green and pampushkas (dumplings).
I really wonder what it tastes like! :-)
This morning I received this "Bloody Mary"! Yvonne in Germany sent it to me and asked if I had ever tried one. I haven't..... I always stick to a nice glass of wine....
Thanks Yvonne for this great card!
A typical Italian recipe from the region 'Toscana'. I'm not really into eating livers but I love to receive recipes like this. I think you learn a lot about a country and his people by getting to know about local food!
Thanks Lisa in Italy for sending me this card :-)
