Mix honey and lime juice together. Add the cayenne pepper. (Rachel says, "DO NOT TASTE IT AT THIS POINT"!) Add mayonnaise and salt and whisk together with a fork until blended. Peel, and slice the fruit. Sprinkle with lemon juice. Rachel says that she uses only enough to glaze the fruit, about one fourth of the recipe.

2. Roast Pork With Apples and Onions

This is such an easy recipe and it combines the favorite fall flavors of roasted pork, mustard, onions and apples to make a sweet and spicy treat. All you need to add is something whipped or fingerling potatoes for a fabulous and fulfilling meal.

Cooking Time: 30 minutes

Serves 4

4 large pork chops
1 tbs Dijon mustard
1 tbs chopped fresh parsley
2 tsp brown sugar
2 red apples, cored, cut into wedges
1 red onion, cut into thin wedges
8 fresh sage leaves
1 tbs olive oil

1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. Combine the mustard, parsley and sugar in a small bowl.
3. Brush both sides of the pork chops with the mustard mixture.
4. Season with salt and pepper.
5. Place the pork in a large roasting pan.
6. Arrange the apple, onion and sage around the pork in the pan.
7. Drizzle everything with olive oil.
8. Roast for 20 minutes or until the pork is cooked through.

Note: It's great to have a few alternatives so try any or all of these:
1. Replace pork with chicken breast fillets.
2. Replace parsley with fresh thyme leaves.
3. Replace sugar with olive oil.
4. Replace apples with fresh yellow peaches, stones removed, cut into wedges.

4. Roasted Green Beans

This green bean recipe will be a hit tonight!

From, "River Road Recipes IV...Warm Welcomes" published by The Junior League of Baton Rouge, Inc. in cooperation with your Daily InBox newsletter.


2 pounds fresh green beans, trimmed, or
1 (16-ounce) package frozen whole green beans
3 Tablespoons slivered almonds
1-1/2 Tablespoons lemon juice
1 Tablespoon olive oil
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon basil
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Combine the green beans, almonds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, garlic powder, basil and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Spread the bean mixture in a 10X15-inch baking pan. Roast at 450 degrees for 10 minutes or until tender and brown, stirring occasionally.

NOTE: Roasting green beans in the oven keeps them tender but still
firm. This is a good dish for an outdoor party since it can be prepared in advance and held at room temperature.
5. Russian Salad (ultimate)

Number of Servings: 8

2 Beets
2 Pound(s) Boiling potatoes
2 Carrots
1/4 Pound(s) String beans
1 Cup(s) Water
1 1/4 Cup(s) Mayonnaise
2 Tablespoon(s) White wine vinegar
1/2 Teaspoon(s) Salt
2 Tablespoon(s) Gherkin pickles, tart chopped
1 Tablespoon(s) Capers, for garnish

Peel the beets and carrots and cut into 1/4-inch dice. Peel the potatoes and cut into 1/2-inch dice. Trim the string beans and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Drain, rinse and pat dry the small capers, for garnishing. Pour the water in the pressure cooker. Place the diced beets, and then the potatoes, carrots, and string
beans in the steamer basket on the trivet in the pressure cooker. Position the lid on the pressure cooker and lock in place. Raise the heat to high and bring to high pressure. Adjust heat to stabilize pressure and cook 6 minutes. Remove from heat and lower pressure using the cold water release method.
Open the pressure cooker. If the vegetables are not yet tender, reposition the lid on the pressure cooker and cook under high pressure an additional 1 to 2 minutes. Open the pressure cooker and carefully remove the steamer basket with the cooked vegetables. Place the cooked vegetables in a large mixing bowl. Let cool until just warm. In a small
bowl mix together 3/4 cup of the mayonnaise with the vinegar. Add the chopped pickles to the vegetables. Toss to mix. Add the mayonnaise dressing and toss to blend. Taste and adjust for salt. Spoon the salad on a serving plate, mounding slightly. Smooth top with a spatula and evenly spread with the remaining 1/2 cup of mayonnaise. Sprinkle the top with the capers. Recipe from Tom Lacalamita, to be featured in The Ultimate Pressure
Cooker Cookbook (1997)
