In this weeks Gourmet CSA bag:

Ross’ Garden Vine Ripened Tomatoes

Schwebach Farm Pinto Beans

Dulce de Leche de Cabra / Cajeta from Learning Mind.org

Pasta Divina Fresh Organic Pasta

Fat Boy Coffee or New Mexico Tea Company Tea

2 Old Windmill Dairy Cheeses

 

Caramel Custard
1 recipe Cajeta from Learning Mind
3 eggs
3 egg yolks
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
1 1/4 cups milk

Preheat oven to 300 degrees F.

Warm the cajeta slightly in the microwave or allow it to come to room temperature.

Put eggs and egg yolks in a bowl and whisk in the sugar until it is dissolved but the mixture is not foamy. Whisk in the cajeta and then the milk, and stir until well blended.

Pour custard into the prepared cups and place them in a water bath. Place the flans into oven and bake for 20 to 30 minutes, or until firm.

Carefully remove the flans from the water bath and chill, tightly covered, for 4 hours or overnight before serving.

When ready to serve, loosen flans from edges of cups with a sharp knife pressed firmly against the edges of the cups. Unmold individual flans directly onto their serving plates.

If making one large flan, put the serving plate on top of the mold and invert them in tandem. Lift mold off carefully. Drizzle reserved caramel around, if desired, and serve at once.

You may want to drizzle cajeta on ice cream, waffles, pancakes, toast, granny smith apples or any of your favorite treats. 

 

 

PINTO BEANS AND HAM HOCKS

 

3 to 5 heavily smoked ham hocks
2 lbs. dry pinto beans, washed & cleaned
1 lg. onion, chopped
3 lg. cloves garlic

Place ham hocks, onion and garlic into a large cooking pot. Add enough water to fill the pot about 3/4 full. Boil 1 to 2 hours or until the hocks are tender. Add pinto beans and water as necessary and continue cooking 1 to 2 hours more until the beans are done. If you soaked the beans before hand, the time required for this part may be reduced. If you like them zesty, a couple of Jalapeno peppers may be added here. Taste is important here. I like to cook mine until the beans begin to fall apart and the broth begins to look like thick bean soup, but I feel this greatly enhances the flavor.

Serves 6-8.

 

Remember, if you ever need a helping hand, you’ll find one at the end of your arm … As you grow older you will discover that you have two hands. One for helping yourself, the other for helping others.
