Harvest Eating Podcast
The Harvest Eating podcast is devoted to sharing my love of food, family and much more. I talk about recipes, cooking methods, different dietary regimens I have tried.

Today I give you three ideas to help make Thanksgiving Day as enjoyable and stress-free as possible.

Making sure your turkey is not overcooked, creating hot and lump-free mashed potatoes and lastly encouraging you to make ahead as much as possible.

Cranberry sauce, pies, stuffing (dressing), prepare vegetables etc.

Don't wait to do everything on one day!

Today I discuss a classic southern dish, Sweet Potato Pie.

Most folks are familiar with good ole pumpkin pie which is great, but sweet potato pie is better in my opinion and has more style and class if I may say. What makes this pie special is the preparation of the sweet potatoes, in this case, roasting is the special trick.

Roasting is a dry heat method of cooking and it produces more “caramelly” taste and texture than boiling does, which is the method most commonly used.

If you’ve had sweet potato pie there is a good chance (like 80%) that the potatoes were precooked in cans, just like pumpkin. Sadly, this makes mush out of the sweet potatoes and does nothing to enhance them.

My method of roasting enhances the taste, texture and sweet flavor naturally present in sweet potatoes. It’s best to find clean, unblemished potatoes to make this. Often times store-bought sweets are rather beat up.

A local farm market is the best place if you have access, but alas, a great pie can easily be made using store sourced potatoes. If you can grow your own….now that would be awesome, next level!

I hope this episode finds you well, hungry and ready to cook!

Be sure to visit Harvest Eating to find the recipe, and possibly a video too!

Today's episode is dedicated to a dish I call the garbage salad.

A Keto salad recipe made up of a combo of lettuces w olives, peppers, feta & provolone cheese, salami, cucumbers, roasted peppers, and a simple creamy Greek Dressing.

This salad must be cold....which means cold salad bowls, serving bowls, and ingredients, no warm salad!

Today I discuss a few basic eggs recipes, Gratin of Eggs and the tortilla or frittata....both classic comfort food egg dishes. 

Anyone adhering to the keto diet is usually cooking with eggs. These recipes are very eggcellent (could not resist) and filling but of course, delicious!

Here is a link to the Spanish Tortilla video I did. It's a very easy and wonderful way to make use of eggs.

Also, here is what typical European eggs look like....compare those to the eggs you get at your supermarket...you'll be crying too!

Very nice eggs....NOT from factory farms.

I want to thank Carl from Hawaii for sending me the request for a collard greens recipe. This Collard Green Gratin is a wonderful way to prepare collard greens. A simple bechamel sauce with cheese (compound-mornay sauce) and nutmeg is the binder for this dish.

Some toasted breadcrumbs add a crunchy texture on top. If you enjoy collard greens, this dish is for you! I would encourage other listeners to send me their questions keith@harvesteating.com
