What's your newest discovery?

Summer time is always a time for culinary exploration for me. Recently my friend introduced me to a Crab Senegalese soup that was simply delicious. It had butter, minced sweet onion, lime, chicken broth, a bit of honey, yellow curry, and fresh cut corn. Once cooked for a short time, the ingredients were chilled. An hour before serving, she stirred in half and half and lump crab meat. She garnished with with a sprig of mint and parsley. She served it with salad and fresh crusty bread. The meal was refreshing and wonderful on a hot summer evening. Needless to say, I've begged the recipe and made it at home almost immediately as my latest discovery. The beauty of the soup is that it will wait nicely for serving. Also, it can be served hot or cold.

So what have you discovered lately? New ingredient? New recipe? Please share!

Crab Senegalese Soup

Saute 3 tablespoons of minced onion in 1 tablespoon of butter until soft. Add a tablespoon of regular flour and a tablespoon of yellow curry and saute another minute or two. Add 32 ounces of chicken stock, the juice of one lime, and two tablespoons of honey and stir. Add the corn from two ears of corn and bring to a soft boil. Simmer for five minutes and refrigerate for several hours to blend the flavors. An hour before serving, stir in a cup of crab meat and 2/3 cup of half-n-half. Garnish with mint or parsley...or both.

So easy and very yummy. Can be served hot or cold.

Mimi - I don't see why not. It supposedly works with milk. If it is horrible, let me know.

MollyAnne - That sounds SO good. I love milkshakes. I tried to make a strawberry milkshake with frozen strawberries, milk, and sweetener. It was not as good as I had hoped it would be though. Have you any suggestions?

Don't use frozen strawberries...they're more flavorful when they're thawed or fresh. But do use a few ice cubes or the frozen milk cubes along with the strawberries (to add thickness and chill you get from icecream), some extra sweetener, and maybe even a little vanilla because strawberry icecream probably has some vanilla in it. I read somewhere that you can freeze milk (use icecube trays).
