Ingredients:
2 cupspecans
1/2 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Kosher salt
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
6 ounces thickly sliced pancetta, finely diced
1/4 cup white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons caper brine (from a jar of capers)
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
Freshly ground black pepper
2 Granny Smith apples, cut into matchsticks
1 large head radicchio, shredded
One 8-ounce bunch kale—stems discarded, leaves finely shredded
3 tablespoons snipped chives
1 tablespoon chopped tarragon
2 ounces shaved pecorino
 
Directions:
Preheat the oven to 350°. In a bowl, cover the pecans with water. Transfer to a sieve and shake out the water. In another bowl, whisk the confectioners' sugar, cayenne and 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt. Add the pecans and toss. Transfer to a sieve and shake off the excess coating. Arrange the pecans on a parchment paper–lined baking sheet and bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until the sugar is lightly caramelized and the pecans are golden.
 
In a skillet, heat the oil with the pancetta and cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the pancetta is browned, 6 minutes. Strain the pan drippings into a large bowl; whisk in the vinegar, caper brine and maple syrup and season the dressing with salt and black pepper. Add the apples, radicchio, kale, chives, tarragon and pecorino and toss. Mound the salad on plates, garnish with the pecans and pancetta and serve.

Kale & Spinach Pesto

 

We are happy to bring back Donita Anderson, finally the start of the outdoor markets at Shaker Square!  The first market is 8 a.m. to Noon on April 5.  What's in season? Tender greens, such as kale and spinach, early spring plants and flowers, sheep shearings, at more! The tender greens have a lot of energy from the earth and the sun, and would go great in this fresh and delicious kale & spinach pesto, pinned to our "Locally Grown" board.  Every week, we'll continue to pin more recipes with what's in season to our Locally Grown board, so be sure to follow us and re-pin your favorites! To see the pin, click the picture below.

Speaking of energy, here is this week's Energy Saving Tips, from Cleveland Public Power - Count On It.. While cooking your tasty locally grown recipes, make sure you plan ahead-- make sure you have all the ingredients, and remove all ingredients for each recipe one at time, to save the escape of energy from leaving the refrigerator door open for long periods of time. It's simple, but every little difference counts.

Energy safe tip from Cleveland Public Power - Count on It:

To save on energy while preheating, make sure you time your preheating period accordingly-- 5 to 8 minutes should be plenty of time.

Balsamic Roast

Nurses, syrup, honey, and tender greens are still in season... but this week at the market, there's also artisan cheeses, grass-fed beef and pork, and so much more.  Listen below for everything you can expect at the markets this week.  We've got plenty of tasty, fresh, delicious and locally grown and raised recipes on our Pinterest, including this Balsamic Roast that you can make in your slow cooker! Just click the image below.

 

 

Energy safe tip from Cleveland Public Power - Count on It:

If every household in the U.S. replaced one light bulb with a CFL (coiled) bulb, it would prevent enough pollution to equal removing one million cars from the road!  Replacing a 100-watt incandescent with a 32-watt CFL can save you at least $30 in energy costs over the life of the bulb.
