Happy Thankgiving ... Again!
« on: October 10, 2016, 10:30:12 PM »
Yes.  It's that time of year again.

Time to explain once again that Thankgiving in Canada is on the second Monday in October, not the fourth Thursday in November, because our harvest season comes earlier than in the U.S..

Besides, who wants to be forced to sit down to a big family meal with a whole bunch of men wearing ugly looking moustaches for Movember?  ;)


This year I am preparing two items for the big family meal.

The first is steamed jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese and pesto.

The second in wild grape cheesecake pie.  The recipe is actually for chokecherries, but it works great for grapes as well.

Anyone else having Thanksgiving today?

I normally do this dish with cherry bomb peppers, which are round and sit nicely in the oven dish while steaming, but alas!  cherry bomb peppers are not available here in town, and the only places I know of that have them are

I'm afraid you are too late man.   :(

We are all tired and nursing sore stomachs from eating too much.

I will link you to the recipe I used for the pie though.

You can go out and gather wild grapes like I did, or you can just use unsweetened grape juice from the store.

The jalapenos turned out to be way too hot, especially the big ones.

I normally use a different kind of peppers, cherry bomb peppers, but none were available in town.  Next time I will try harder to get them, because the jalapenos were not a good substitute.
