Figs, dates and pears, oh my!

Get to know fruit in a whole new and flavour­ful way

Northern News (Kirkland Lake) - - LIFE - ATCO BLUE FLAME KITCHEN

Though most fruits are best sim­ply eaten fresh out of hand, cook­ing with them of­ten brings out their nat­u­ral sweet­ness, and a richer, deeper flavour.

Our Grilled Gin­ger Pear Gouda Sand­wiches start with home­made Gin­ger Pear Chut­ney. The sweet and tangy chut­ney is then slathered onto rye bread and topped with smoked Gouda be­fore be­ing grilled – you don’t need tomato soup for this one!

Our Fig and Wal­nut Loaf is a not­too-sweet treat that’s per­fect with a cup of tea or cof­fee. This recipe can be made ahead and frozen, so a warm baked-good is al­ways on hand.

If you’re feed­ing a crowd, try our Cheese-Stuffed Dates and Pep­per Jelly. Boursin cheese and pep­per jelly make this ap­pe­tizer a breeze, while tast­ing like a high-end hors d’oeu­vre. Cal­gary-based ATCO Blue Flame Kitchen has been pro­vid­ing ad­vice on food, cook­ing, recipes and other house­hold top­ics for more than 80 years. Their cook­books in­clude Ev­ery­day De­li­cious and From the Grill.
