Peach Butter Bingo 4 – Peach Butter Pot Roast

Granted, I probably could have come up with a better… more creative… less vision-o-breakfast conjuring name for the pot roast… but it is what it is. This is the last of the Peach Butter Bingo recipes you..you in the back… stop rolling your eyes…. This pot roast is deceptively simple, with a huge bang for your flavor buck. The thing is – pot roast is pot roast, and unless you do something exceptionally bizarre with your preparation, they pretty much all taste the same…. meat…potatoes…veg. I had a little of the Peach Butter BBQ sauce left over in the fridge, and things being what they are, it wasn’t going to hang around in there forever and wait for me to grill up something else. So I looked at the sauce… a 1/2 cup of peppers, garlic, sweet, tang, hot and wondered what it would be like to use it as the only seasoning in the pot roast. This one is a winner. The peach butter isn’t overpowering, but adds just enough sweet balance to the …

Peach Butter Bingo #3 – Tie One On

Bourbon ~ Peach Butter BBQ Sauce Regionally speaking, I’m not a sweet BBQ sauce kind of guy. I like ’em hot and tart. Nothing really beats a good North Carolina vinegar sauce… or that insanely mustard-y sauce from Carey Hilliard’s in Savannah (are they even open anymore? …  I really need to get down there, see what’s shakin’ in the Port City… and poke around in The Church Cook’s Kitchen while I’m at it.) So, needless to say, this sauce really isn’t my cup of tea…so to speak… but since pork, bourbon and peaches really do a number on the taste buds, I just couldn’t resist trying the peach butter in a sweet and spicy sauce. If you’re a fan of Kansas City Style sauces – this’ll be right up your alley. It’s been raining off and on the past two days here at Turtle Creek. Since I’m not a fan of grilling in the rain, I wanted to cut down on the cooking time and amp up the tenderizing since these ribs wouldn’t be slow cooking …

Peach Butter Bingo 2 – Peach Butter Roll

Roll That Beautiful Peach Footage…. The peach butter roll is a riff on my great grandmother Clara’s Chocolate Roll. Biscuit – based desserts are part of a group of foods I classify as “depression foods.” Times were hard, time – in general, was short as more and more people were leaving the farm in search of by-the-hour- or week work to sustain their families –  and staples were in even shorter supply… Enter quick-work meals, where a working mother could still get home and pull together a hot, nourishing, and  filling meal in a relatively short period of time – with a limited number of ingredients. And, yes… I said biscuits. So – to begin with, you’re going to need a good biscuit recipe. I’m using Jane’s Buttermilk Biscuit recipe a). Because they’re damned good biscuits b). I know it by heart I’ll go ahead and give it to you again, instead of making you crawl the site for it. Jane’s Buttermilk Biscuits Makes 24 mini biscuits… or 12 if you make something as big …
