LOOKING for: Need to wow the foodies-impressive/memorable recipe

Posted by happygardener23 (My Page) on

I just got turned onto the "Food Swap Network" and the idea of local food swaps. If you are unfamiliar (as I was) the idea is that people come together with their homemade items (preserves, pickles, baked goods, homegrown produce, dried/dehydrated items, spices, sauces, curds, syrups, etc.) and they arrange to trade items with one another as desired. Of course you want to bring things that will appeal to others so that you can interest them in a trade for their goods.

From what I hear, the swap attracts a lot of foodies who appreciate unique ingredients/flavor combinations and of course anything absolutely delicious is appreciated regardless of uniqueness quotient (samples are provided so people know what they're getting).

I'm super excited for my first of hopefully many monthly swaps and I want to start a collection of recipe ideas so that I can make things as the seasonal ingredients come ripe. I can can, pickle, lacto ferment, bake, candy make, etc. and I'm willing to develop new skills (I don't have a pressure canner though, but items don't need to be shelf stable so I can just present items in jars with directions to refrigerate).

Please send your best recipes/ideas my way. Any tips from veteran food swappers also appreciated. Thank you!

Here;s a recipe which i tried last week :Country Apple Dumplings
2 large Granny Smith apples, peeled and cored
2 (10 ounce) cans refrigerated crescent roll dough
1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 (12 fluid ounce) can or bottle Mountain Dew
1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
2. Cut each apple into 8 wedges and set aside. Separate the crescent roll dough into triangles. Roll each apple wedge in crescent roll dough starting at the smallest end. Pinch to seal and place in the baking dish.
3. Melt butter in a small saucepan and stir in the sugar and cinnamon. Pour over the apple dumplings. Pour Mountain Dew™ over the dumplings.
4. Bake for 35 to 45 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden brown.
