Tart Cherry Glazed Root Vegetables

Posted on Aug 19 , 2016 - 04:42 pm

Ingredients

Glaze:

  • 1/2 cup Montmorency tart cherry concentrate
  • 1/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3/4 teaspoon hot sauce

Vegetables:

  • 1 1/4 lb. gold potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 (3/4 lb.) rutabaga, peeled & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 3 carrots, peeled & cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 red onion, peeled and cut through the root into 8 wedges
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon crushed rosemary

Directions

In a medium saucepan, whisk together the tart cherry concentrate, water, maple syrup and hot sauce.

Bring to a boil, then lower to a simmer. Cook, stirring every couple of minutes, until the glaze is reduced by more than half. Remove from heat and let the sauce rest for about 15 minutes to thicken further.

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F, with oven rack placed in the bottom two positions. Lightly coat two baking sheets with cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the gold potatoes, rutabaga, sweet potato, carrots and red onion.

Drizzle the olive oil over the vegetables, season with salt and crushed rosemary, and stir gently to combine.

Divide the vegetables evenly between the two prepared baking sheets. Roast for 20 minutes, then gently stir the vegetables and rotate the baking sheets from rack to rack, and front to back.

Roast until the vegetables are tender when pierced with a fork and golden brown in some spots, an additional 15 minutes. Drizzle 3 tablespoons of the tart cherry glaze over each portion of vegetables. Stir gently to coat.

Return to the oven for 3 minutes. Serve.

Pan Seared Pork Medallions with Tart Cherry-Red Wine Reduction

Posted on Jul 01 , 2016 - 11:37 am

Ingredients

Tart Cherry Red Wine Reduction
1 cup Montmorency tart cherry juice
3 tablespoons dried Montmorency tart cherries
2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
1 shallot, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 cup dry red wine (Cabernet used)
1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
Pork Medallions
1 pound pork tenderloin, cut into 1 1/2-inch thick medallions
Salt
Pepper, freshly ground

Directions

Tart Cherry Red Wine Reduction
Heat oil in a saute pan over medium heat. Add the shallot, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for another minute.

Add the wine, increase the heat to high and cook until it’s reduced by half. Stir in the Montmorency tart cherry juice, dried Montmorency tart cherries, maple syrup and thyme. Cook over high heat for 10 to 15 minutes, until the sauce is mostly reduced. Taste, and season with additional salt and pepper, if necessary.

Pork Medallions
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Place pork on a cutting board or plate, cut side up. Season both sides of the pork medallions with salt and pepper.

Heat the remaining olive oil in a large cast iron skillet, or oven save pan. When the oil is very hot, but not smoking using tongs to add the pork pieces to the skillet, cut side down. Cook until golden, about 2 to 4 minutes. Use tongs to flip the medallions over, cooking the other side for 2 to 4 minutes, or until golden.

Transfer the skillet to the oven and finishing cooking for 5 to 8 minutes.

The most accurate way to check the doneness of the meat is with a thermometer. Pork should be cooked to 145 degrees F.

Cherry Lime Energy Balls

Posted on Jun 01 , 2016 - 11:21 am

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dried Montmorency tart cherries
  • 1/2 cup cashews
  • 1/2 cup almonds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon ginger (dry)
  • 1/2 cup lime juice

Directions

Soak cherries in warm water while you prep the rest of your ingredients. Not a required step but I find in helpful in giving the balls sticking powder.

Pulse ingredients in blender or food processor until coarsely chopped. Scoop by the tablespoonful and form into ball. If mixture won’t hold, blend more or add more liquid (coconut oil or lime juice).

Eat as-is or pop in the freezer to make extra portable and refreshing post-workout.
