BEACH PLUM JELLY - OLD SCHOOL RECIPE

BEACH PLUM JELLY – OLD SCHOOL RECIPE

Late August in East Hampton is beach plum season.  Maybe it was the weather (wet early on, then sunny, temperate days in July and August) or that we went a-pickin’ a week or so earlier than usual, but the crop was especially bountiful.

BRUSSELS SPROUT KIMCHI

SCOTCH EGGS

SCOTCH EGGS

By all rights Scotch eggs should be a lot more popular than they are. Hard boiled eggs, yolks just barely firm, are wrapped in sausage meat then breaded and fried. What could be bad?
