Ingredients:

2 ½ cup fresh or frozen cranberries

½ cup Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar

¼ cup water

2 Tbsp sugar

½ cup sugar

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
½ teaspoon table salt
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 ½ pounds sweet apples (6-7 medium), peeled, cored, and cut into ¼-inch-thick slices
9-inch pie
pastry for a single-crust pie

1 ½ cup flour

¾  cup firmly packed brown sugar

1 ½  tsp cinnamon

½  tsp salt
2/3  cup unsalted butter, cut into chunks

 

Bring cranberries, Cinnamon Pear Balsamic Vinegar, water and 2 Tbsp sugar to a boil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. As soon as berries begin to pop, take saucepan off the heat and allow the berries to macerate in the vinegar mixture for 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, mix ½ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon salt, and cornstarch in large microwave-safe bowl.  Add apples and toss to coat. Microwave on high, stirring every 3 minutes, for 10-14 minutes or until the edges of the apples are slightly translucent and liquid has thickened. Cool to room temperature (30 minutes).

After 30 minutes drain the cranberries, reserving the liquid.  In a large bowl gently fold together the apples and the cranberries. Pour filling into unbaked pie pastry and drizzle with some of the reserved vinegar mixture, adding more if extra tartness is desired.

Olive Oil Gelato with Balsamic Strawberries

Ingredients:

3 cups milk

1 cup heavy cream

6 egg yolks

1 cup sugar

2/3 cup Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 pints strawberries, hulled and sliced

2 Tbsp 18 year Traditional Balsamic Vinegar

 

Directions:

In a saucepan over medium heat, whisk together the milk and cream. Cook until bubbles form around the edges of the pan.

Meanwhile, in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the whisk attachment, beat the egg yolks and sugar on medium-high speed until thick and tripled in volume, about 5 minutes. Reduce the speed to medium-low, slowly drizzle in the olive oil and beat until combined, stopping the mixer occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl.

Slowly add 2 cups of the hot milk mixture, 1/4 cup at a time, beating until just combined. Slowly pour the yolk mixture back into the saucepan, whisking with a handheld whisk until combined. Place the pan over medium-low heat and cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture coats the back of a spoon and a candy thermometer registers 175°F, about 15 minutes.

Strain the custard through a fine-mesh sieve into a bowl. Place the bowl in a larger one partially filled with ice water and cool the custard to room temperature, stirring occasionally. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until cold, about 2 hours.

Transfer the custard to an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer's instructions. Transfer the gelato to a chilled container, cover and freeze until firm, at least 3 hours or up to 3 days, before serving.

One hour before serving, prepare the strawberries: In a bowl, combine the strawberries with the balsamic vinegar. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.

To serve, scoop the gelato into individual bowls and top each with 1/4 cup of the strawberries with their juices. Serve immediately. Serves 8 to 10.

Lemon Fused
Blood Orange Fused

Citrus Olive Oil Cake

Yield: Makes 8 servings
Ingredients

3/4 cup Blood Orange or Lemon Fused Extra Virgin Olive Oil, plus additional for greasing pan
1 large lemon
1 cup cake flour (not self-rising)
5 large eggs, separated, reserving 1 white for another use
3/4 cup plus 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation

Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350°F. Grease 9 inch springform pan with some oil, then line bottom with a round of parchment paper. Oil parchment.

Finely grate enough lemon zest to measure 1 1/2 teaspoons and whisk together with flour. Halve lemon, then squeeze and reserve 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice.

Beat together yolks and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer at high speed until thick and pale, about 3 minutes. Reduce speed to medium and add olive oil (3/4 cup) and reserved lemon juice, beating until just combined (mixture may appear separated). Using a wooden spoon, stir in flour mixture (do not beat) until just combined.

Beat egg whites (from 4 eggs) with 1/2 teaspoon salt in another large bowl with cleaned beaters at medium-high speed until foamy, then add 1/4 cup sugar a little at a time, beating, and continue to beat until egg whites just hold soft peaks, about 3 minutes.

Gently fold one third of whites into yolk mixture to lighten, then fold in remaining whites gently but thoroughly.

Transfer batter to spring form pan and gently tap against work surface once or twice to release any air bubbles. Sprinkle top evenly with remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons sugar. Bake until puffed and golden and a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center of cake comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Cool cake in pan on a rack 10 minutes, then run a thin knife around edge of pan and remove side of pan. Cool cake to room temperature, about 1 1/4 hours. Remove bottom of pan and peel off parchment, then transfer cake to a serving plate.

4 oz unsweetened chocolate, melted

¾ cup SEASONS orange fused extra virgin olive oil

½ cup lightly toasted chopped nuts (optional)

 

Preheat the oven to 350F. Line an 8-inch (20cm) square baking pan with a lightly oiled and floured piece of parchment paper that overhangs the pan on two sides (this aids in removal later).

Mushroom Sage Risotta

6 dried porcini mushrooms

3 sprigs fresh sage

4 cups chicken stock (chicken broth, mushroom broth, or vegetable broth)

6 Tbsp SEASONS mushroom sage infused extra virgin olive oil

2 cloves garlic, peeled and minced

2 large leeks thinly slice

12 oz crimini mushroms, cleaned and cut into 1/2-inch chunks

1 ½  c Arborio rice or other short-grain rice

salt and pepper

freshly grated Parmesan cheese

 

Put dried porcini mushrooms in a small bowl with the sage and add enough boiling

water to cover. Allow to soak for about ten minutes until they have rehydrated.

Heat chicken stock in a saucepan over medium-high heat. When the stock comes to a boil, turn down to a simmer. Remove softened porcini mushrooms and sage from the water and chop coarsely. Retain the steeping liquid.

Heat 5 tbsp SEASONS mushroom sage infused extra virgin olive oil on medium heat in a saucepan or saucier. Add garlic and leeks and saute until golden. Add 1 more tbsp. olive oil and rice, sauté rice until it begins to turn golden. Add mushrooms (including the reconstituted dried mushrooms) and cook until they have given off most of their water. Season with salt and pepper.

Lower heat to medium-low. Add all dried mushroom liquid and one ladleful of chicken stock. Stir risotto thoroughly. If the liquid in the risotto is boiling very quickly, turn the heat down. The dish should cook gently and slowly.

When the risotto has absorbed most of the liquid, add another ladleful of stock and stir thoroughly. Repeat this step until the rice does not seem to be absorbing more liquid and the grains are chewy and al dente to taste. Check for salt and pepper and season if necessary.

To finish, grate Parmesan cheese over risotto. Any available fresh sage makes a nice garnish. Serve immediately.

This recipe uses:
Arbequina
Dark Chocolate

Chocolate Coconut Bars

1/3 cup cocoa powder

1/2 cup plus 2 Tbsp boiling water

2 oz semi-sweet chocolate, finely chopped

3/4 cup SEASONS Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil

2 large eggs

2 large egg yolks

1/4 cup SEASONS 12 yr Chocolate Infused Balsamic Vinegar

2 1/2 cups sugar

1 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

3/4 tsp kosher salt

2 1/2 ounces bittersweet chocolate, coarsely chopped

2 cups shredded sweetened coconut

Natural Falk Salt or Fleur de sel, for sprinkling

 

Heat oven to 350 degrees. 

Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking pan. In a large bowl, whisk together the cocoa powder, and the boiling water until smooth.  Add the semi-sweet chocolate and whisk until the chocolate has melted.  Whisk in the olive oil.  Add the eggs, egg yolks and balsamic vinegar, and continue to whisk until combined.  Add the sugar whisking until fully incorporated.  Using a spatula, fold in the flour and kosher salt until just combined.  Fold in the bittersweet chocolate pieces.

Pour half the batter into the prepared pan and smooth with a spatula.  Sprinkle 1 cup of the coconut on top of the batter. Pour in the remaining batter and smooth.  Top with remaining coconut.  Sprinkle with Falk salt or Fleur de sel and bake until just set and firm to the touch, about 25 to 30 minutes. (These brownies solidify as they cool, so inserting a toothpick to check for doneness will not work; it does not come out clean.)  Transfer pan  to a wire rack and allow to completely cool before cutting into 2 inch squares.
