This recipe is an awesome alternative to a red barbeque sauce for chicken. It was a neighborhood favorite during summer when I was growing up. Submitted in memory of Ruth Karahan who originally had the recipe and passed away in 2004.
Raisins and vanilla are stirred into a thick and lovely custard made with egg yolks, butter, scalded milk and sugar. This lovely filling is then cooled slightly, poured into a baked pie shell and smothered with meringue. After a moment in the oven, this luscious pie is ready to be topped with whipped cream and a dusting of nutmeg.
Sweet red bell peppers are sauteed with garlic and spicy cayenne pepper, then simmered with sour cream and chicken broth to make a hot and luscious pasta sauce. Finish with Parmesan cheese and toss with cooked pasta.
Sauteed sweet peppers and kale are tossed with farfalle pasta and sprinkled with a generous amount of crumbled feta cheese. This recipe was inspired by a similar recipe I received in my produce box from Full Circle Farm in Carnation, WA.
