    The soup that the mushroom grower was talking about sounded good.
    Cilantro, coconut milk, ginger ..... Anytime these ingredients are involved, I'm interested

    And the stuffed mushrooms sounded yummy. Too bad most of the interesting mushrooms are $$$
    Yes, I am poor.

    Given the recent weather, I've been thinking along the lines of chili/stew/soup/gumbo. One of these days I want to try making a pot of French onion soup.

    I made marinated mushrooms for Thanksgiving and again for Christmas, and they were consumed both times way too early.

    Sounds good. What kind of mushrooms? Dried or fresh? What kind of marinade?

    Need to make a day in advance.

    I used canned whole mushrooms, but I've done it with fresh button mushrooms. Never tried dried.

    3 4-oz jars mushrooms, drained.

    1/3 cup red wine vinegar
    1/3 cup olive oil (or vegetable oil)
    1 tsp mustard
    1 TBL brown sugar
    1 tsp salt
    1 TBL parsley flakes
    1 small white onion, thinly sliced.

    Bring all ingredients, except mushrooms, to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes, until onions are translucent.

    Add mushrooms and simmer 5 more minutes. Cool and store overnight in frig.

    Good french onion soup takes much longer than 30 minutes.


    I would like to make my own starter for bread and bake it in my new combo cooker. If I ever have more than one day off a week it's a done deal.

    I've seen different French onion soup recipes that call for chicken broth added to the beef broth, for red wine added, white wine, cognac, heck, even one adding apple cider. Just wondering how different variations would affect the overall flavor.

    Alton Brown's recipe is pretty good and doesn't take up too much time: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/a...ipe/index.html


    Thomas Keller's recipe from Bouchon is considerably more time-consuming. It requires a day to make beef stock and a day for the soup. It's easy to find on Google, but only if you're prepared to go to those lengths for soup. And as always with soups, it's better after sitting in the fridge for a couple of days.

    Yield: About 4 quarts

    5 pounds unpeeled onions

    1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter

    1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper

    2 tablespoons paprika

    3/4 cup all-purpose flour

    1 bay leaf

    3 quarts beef broth (regular or low-sodium)

    1 cup white wine, optional

    Caramel coloring or Kitchen Bouquet, optional

    2 teaspoons salt or to taste

    Sourdough or French baguettes, thinly sliced, optional

    Swiss or Gruyere cheese, optional

    1. Peel onions and slice 1/8 inch thick. Melt butter in a 6-quart (or larger) stockpot. Add onions; cook, uncovered, over low heat for 1 1/2 hours, stirring occasionally.

    2. Sprinkle with pepper, paprika and flour and add bay leaf; sauté over low heat 10 minutes, stirring frequently.

    3. Slowly pour in broth and wine, stirring constantly. Increase heat and bring to a boil.

    4. As soon as the soup boils, reduce heat to low and simmer very slowly for 2 hours.

    5. If desired, adjust color to a rich brown with caramel coloring. Season with salt. Refrigerate overnight so flavors can blend.

    6. To serve, reheat soup. If desired, pour into ovenproof crocks or bowls. Top with a slice of bread and a sprinkling of grated cheese. Heat under the broiler until cheese melts and bubbles, about 5 minutes.
