Classic Granola Recipe.

I love simple classic recipes or ingredients that work to make other recipes. So, this week I wanted to share the special way I make Granola. While it is yummy by itself, it is also an ingredient in many other recipes or a great topping for yogurt, cereal, or any other quick snack.

I love using ingredients in my recipes that I can trust and know the history of. A brand I just love is Bob’s Red Mill. The founder is still working hard at his business even in his 90’s. I love supporting a “small” business that made it big time. if you checked our Instagram lately you’ll see we recently shared an awesome contest they have going on. Head on over to enter to win, if you haven’t already.

Granola is also so easy to make in a large batch to save for later. As a mom of three I am constantly looking for ways to make meal times easier - and this is one of them. It stores so well in a classic glass jar making it a great food gift as well. Perfect for a teacher present, a welcome gift to a new neighbor, or a yummy treat to a friend.

Pink Peppercorn Meringue.

A few years back I crossed paths with now-author Lauren McDuffie through Instagram. We chatted through a few private messages and soon found out how passionate we are about good made from scratch cooking. Lauren has been so great over the last few years, always wearing an heirloomed apron or using our tea towels in a shoot here and there.

Smoke, Roots, Mountain, Harvest Cookbook
Lauren, Author of Smoke, Roots, Mountain, Harvest

This week I’m excited to share that Lauren is launching the most fabulous cookbook. Smoke, Roots, Mountain, Harvest was inspired by her Appalachian home, and not only has the perfect recipes for each season, but she wrote the most beautiful stories throughout the cookbook that weaves them all together perfectly.

Today I wanted to share with you one (of my many) favorites from her cookbook and also give one of you the chance to win this sweet little cookbook (and one of our aprons!).

Strawberry & Pink Peppercorn Meringues by heirloomed

STRAWBERRY AND PINK PEPPERCORN MERINGUES

This recipe is as simple as they come: a few ingredients, a couple of steps, and waiting. Time is the primary ingredient in meringue making, 6 to 8 hours of inactive time, when you can be doing something else. Just put the meringues in the oven and let them do their thing for a couple of hours. Then let them cool for several hours until they are just right: crispy and crackling on the outside and marshmallowy soft on the inside—a textural dream, if there ever was one. I like to serve mine with a dollop of barely sweetened whipped cream and some fresh berries, but they’re also great just as they are. The strawberry bits running through the batter give these meringues a lovely speckled-pink look, and the addition of pink peppercorns provides an almost fl oral complement to the berry flavor. If you can’t find them, the meringues will still be delicious. The strawberries however, are a must; they steal the show. At least for me they do, which may come as no surprise.

INGREDIENTS:

  •  6 large egg whites 

  • ¼ tsp cream of tartar 

  • 1½ cups [300 g] sugar 

  • 1 Tbsp pink peppercorns, finely crushed 

  • ½ cup [45 g] crushed or minced dried strawberries 

  • Lightly sweetened whipped cream for serving (optional) 

  • Sliced fresh strawberries (or any berry you like), for serving (optional)

 Preheat the oven to 200°F [95°C]. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment on medium-high speed (or in a large bowl, using a handheld mixer), beat the egg whites and cream of tartar until soft peaks form. Add the sugar gradually now, about 1 Tbsp at a time, and beat the mixture until it reaches the stiff peaks stage, 6 to 8 minutes. 

Remove any loose skin on the crushed peppercorns, and fold the peppercorns into the meringue batter. Fold in the crushed dried strawberries. 

 Drop the meringue batter onto the baking sheet, measuring 1 cup [240 ml] per cookie (I like them big). Smooth them out with a spoon, if desired, but big, fluffy meringues are wonderful as well. Suit yourself here! Bake for 2 hours. The meringues will have hardened on their surfaces, at this point, but will still be moist on the inside. Turn off the oven and allow the meringues to dry out in the oven until completely cool, 4 to 6 hours. Serve with the lightly sweetened whipped cream and some fresh berries, if desired. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days. Makes about 6 meringues.
