Bourbon Apple Pear Sauce from I'm Just Here for the Food: Food + Heat = Cooking

Very nice take on applesauce. I made it to use up some overripe pears, and it worked just fine. It's also amazingly easy, and using the microwave means no worrying about whether the fruit's going to scorch. read more >

Original Thai Cookbook

By Jennifer Brennan
Perigee Trade - 1984

12th January 2011

Sweet Pork (Moo Wan) : page 159

A delicious and complex treatment for pork. The mix of salt, sweet, and the acrid funkiness of fish sauce calls barbecue to mind. Brennan says this is the "Thai equivalent of ham" and I can easily see making a big roast of this and spreading it out over multiple dishes. (However, I used it as a treatment for pork chops, and while I'm afraid they came out a bit dry, they weren't at all tough and the flavor was delightful.)
