1/2 teaspoon marjoram
3/4 teaspoon pepper
2 1/2 cups onion; chopped
5 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 garlic; cloves, minced
2 eggs; large, slightly beaten

2 1/2 cups tomatoes; canned, chopped
1/2 cup vermouth; dry
1/2 cup beef broth
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1/2 teaspoon sugar
In a medium bowl cover brown rice with hot water and soak for 3 hours. Drain. In a 2-quart saucepan combine rice, 3 cups water, and 1 1/2 t salt. Simmer covered for 40 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed. Add the dillseed, marjoram, and 1/2 t pepper. In a large skillet saute 1 1/2 cups chopped onion in 3 T hot vegetable oil until soft, about 6 to 8 minutes. Add paprika and garlic, continue cooking and stirring for 2 minutes. Stir in the rice mixture, eggs, bread crumbs, and parsley. Adjust seasonings to taste. Core cabbage and, in a large pot, blanch the cabbage cored-side-down in boiling salted water for 5 minutes or until it is softened. Drain. Remove 12 leaves and cut off one fourth of each leaf from the base. Arrange 1 leaf curved-side down on a square of dampened cheesecloth and place 3 T of rice mixture in the center. Wrap the leaf around the filling and twist the corners of the cheesecloth to form the leaf into a roll. Continue making rolls with remaining filling. Chop remaining cabbage to make 3 cups and, in a large frypan, saute with 1 cup chopped onions and 2 T vegetable oil until soft. Add tomatoes, vermouth, broth, tomato paste, sugar, 1/2 t salt and 1/4 t pepper. Simmer the mixture for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Adjust seasonings. Transfer cabbage-tomato sauce mixture to a large baking dish. Arrange the cabbage rolls close together in one layer on the sauce. Spoon some of the mixture over the rolls.

——– ———— ——————————–
6 Ears field corn — preferably white
Water
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons bacon grease
1 teaspoon salt
Using a very sharp knife, cut kernels off cobs – do not cut deeply. The key to perfection is this dish is the manner of removing the kernels – almost knocking them off, disregarding the juice. After the process is completed, scrape the cob to retrieve the milk.
Place scraped cobs in a shallow glass baking dish with a little water to draw the remaining juice. Turn occasionally. After 15 minutes or so, pour juice in with the kernels.
In an aluminum or stainless steel skillet (iron will discolor) place corn, butter, bacon grease and salt. Add a small amount of water to make the juices about the consistency of very thin white sauce.
Uncovered, cook over medium low heat. When mixture starts to boil, stir often. In 20 or 25 minutes liquid should be thick and corn tender.
Serve immediately.
Serves 4 – 6.
This dish freezes perfectly with a little variation in preparation. Cook corn and its milk with salt, fats and a very small amount of water until hot, but do not let boil. Cool slightly and freeze. To serve, add more water and cook about the same length of time.

Place in a large kettle and cover with unsalted cold water. Cook over medium heat until tender – about 15 minutes – when pricked with a fork. Drain well in colander then pat a little with paper towels.
Immediately place half of the cushaw in a 1 qt. casserole dish. Chip half of butter and dot over cushaw.
Mix sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg and sprinkle 1/3 of this over the cushaw.
Gently place the remaining half of the cumshaw on top and dot with the other half of the butter. sprinkle with the rest of the spice mixture.
Mix slightly with care, as the cumshaw will break up easily.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for about an hour or until nicely browned and topping is somewhat crusty.

Smashed Radishes in Soy Dressing
Recipe By :

Categories : Chinese Vegetables
Amount Measure Ingredient — Preparation Method

2 dozen fresh red radishes
3 tablespoons Peanut oil
2 teaspoons Salt
1 teaspoon Sesame oil

1/4 teaspoon Fresh ginger juice
1 teaspoon Sugar
Chinese parsley garnish
3 teaspoons Thin soy sauce
Remove heads and tails from radishes; wash. Using bottom of heavy drinking glass, about 2″ across base, hit radishes on side to crack them not mash them so dressing can get into flesh.
Avoid rendering a crushing blow no matter how you feel that day. Sprinkle radishes all over with salt, put them in a bowl, and set aside for about 15 minutes at room temperature.
Prepare dressing Combine vinegar, sugar, thin soy sauce, peanut oil, sesame oil and fresh ginger juice. Double amount of vinegar for a sharper taste, if desired.
Drain liquid from radishes (salt will have drawn off quite a bit of water); pour dressing over them; cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
If you make this dish ahead of time, pour on dressing 30 minutes before serving. Immediately before serving, transfer radishes to serving dish; garnish with Chinese parsley and serve.
