1. Walnut Spread

Categories: Pickles, Spreads

Yield: 8 Servings

15 Walnuts, shelled (about 1 Cup)
1/4 ts Ground pepper
2 ts Liquamen (sep. recipe)
2 ts Grape juice or sweet wine
2 ts Olive oil
1/2 ts Ground cumin
Garnish of parsley or water
Cress and walnut halves

Grind the walnuts in a blender, or pound them in a mortar until pulverized. Transfer to a mixing bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients and blend well. Place the spread on a flat serving dish and form into the shape of a fish. Decorate by surrounding with parsley (or cress) and unbroken walnut halves.
Serve with bread, rolls, crackers, or by itself. NOTE: The Romans preferred the taste of walnuts with their thin inner skins removed. To do this, drop the walnut meats into boiling water for 30 seconds. Drain immediately, rinse under cold water, and then peel off the thin inner skins.

2. What To Do with Kale

Categories: Digest, Oct.

Yield: 1 Servings

4 c Cooked white beans
Lemon juice to taste
Salt, pepper, red pepper
Flakes to taste.
1 lb Kale
4 Garlic cloves
1 Onion

Mix beans, lemon juice, salt and peppers together. Heat gently and mash slightly.

Chop onions and garlic. Saute until garlic golden. Slice the greens into shreds and add to garlic onion mix. Saute until greens wilted.

Suggested serving mound beans on top of greens.

I like to mix them together top with a little Parmesan cheese and eat with big hunks of crusty bread.
