Weekly Bits: Winter Wonderland

by in Reader Tips & Comments, December 26, 2009

Winter’s official kick-off arrived, along with snow for a good portion of the country. This week’s comment wrap-up has tips for enjoying the cold-weather produce, including roasted chestnuts (no open fire required).

From Spotlight Recipe: Roasted Chestnuts:
“You can also do a quick cook in the microwave. Cut an X on the flat side and heat 5-6 for 1 minute. But eat while still warm, or they get hard and tough when they cool off.” –Sandi

From Healthy Travels: Food For Car Rides:
“I like the UHT boxes of reduced-fat milk for my toddler & snack-size cheese for mom/dad. We’ve opted for a plug-in cooler that works well and is mess free.” –Regan

From Katie’s Healthy Bites: Homemade Ravioli:
“You can use wonton wraps for making ravioli. It is easy.” –Mehreen

From In Season: Beets:
“Another excellent use is to make beet chili. Just shred the beets, add tomatoes, beans, water and proper chili spices, and voila! You have a great vegetarian healthy chili.” –Jane

“Ic have a recipe where I steam them in their jackets, peel and slice then saute in butter, fennel seeds, onions, garlic and the greens with a splash of merlot.” –Vivian
