Scallion Relish

This peppy relish from Martha Stewart adds flavor to the likes of grilled salmon, chicken and even flatbreads.

Ingredients:
1 Walla Walla sweet onion, finely diced
4-6 scallions, trimmed of root and tough green ends and finely diced
1 tablespoon white wine vinegar
1½ teaspoons sugar
Sea salt and pepper
1-2 tablespoons minced fresh herbs, such as parsley, mint, or cilantro

Method:
1. Place onion and scallions in a bowl of ice water; soak 20 minutes.

2. Drain the onion and scallions, squeezing in paper towels to remove as much liquid as possible; transfer to a bowl. Add sugar, vinegar, herbs, and a pinch each of salt and pepper to taste. Relish can be made ahead and refrigerated until ready to use.

Can you feel it? The crocuses are in bloom, daffodils are popping out of the soil and we’ve even shed our jackets an afternoon or two this week: The march towards spring has begun! Celebrate the changing seasons this week with a delicious brunch lineup filled with some of our favorite provisions—from Skagit River Ranch bacon and nutty emmer grain pancake mix to farm-fresh eggs and our own housemade apple butter to slather on your choice of biscuits or scones. Also included: Cinnamon-raisin bread, raspberry smoothies and Big Spoon Roasters’ signature peanut butter kissed with wildflower honey and sea salt.

Preserved Meyer Lemons

Toss these preserved beauties with roasted fingerlings (see recipe!), or whisk the pulp into a salad dressing or a Bloody Mary.

Ingredients:
6 Meyer lemons
⅓ cup kosher salt
⅔ cup fresh Meyer lemon juice

Method:
1. Scrub lemons and dry well. Quarter lemons lengthwise.

2. Toss the lemon wedges with the salt in a bowl and transfer to a sterile 4-cup glass jar. Use a wooden spoon to press the lemons to fit. Add lemon juice and any remaining salt that might be left in the bowl. Seal jar tightly and shake to combine. Let stand at room temperature for 3 days, shaking jar each day. Transfer to the refrigerator for 3 weeks or until rinds are soft. Rinse before using.
