In this rendition, pineapple gets a boost from brown sugar, while vinegar and soy sauce team up for the tangy aspect. Green peppers, celery, and water chestnuts join chicken in this easy one-skillet dish.
Sliced apples, raisins and walnuts are sugared, dusted with cinnamon and nutmeg, and piled into a pastry shell. A sweet crumbly topping is sprinkled over the top. The whole pie is then loosely covered with aluminum foil, and baked until golden and brown.
By varying the fruit a bit, this salad can work for all seasons. Passion fruit make a great addition if they are available. In the summer, add lots of fresh berries and melons. In the winter, try adding dried cranberries or apricots. Fresh juice adds a bit of bite and also keeps the fruit from turning if you are making this ahead.
You might as well bake pumpkin bread in the large batch called for here, because everyone loves it. Three full-sized loaves, lively with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, are your reward. Wrap loaves in cellophane, tie with a colorful ribbon, and give as a gift!
This is an old French Canadian recipe I have been making for years. Even people who don't like turnip will like this, since the addition of the other vegetables blend in and hide the normally strong turnip taste. Depending on your taste, you can experiment with the relative amounts of the vegetables, eg: increase the onion or potatoes, decrease the turnip.
