Fried Green Tomatoes Recipe

A simple and delicious recipe for this time of year! If you've got some green tomatoes on the vine that won't ripen before the frost comes, then now's the time to do something! This is a very basic recipe (with a couple of fun dipping sauces at the end), but you can obviously spice this up however you'd like. Dust them with a little cajun seasoning when they come out of the oil, or dust the tomatoes with a bit of cumin or curry powder before you bread them!

Andrew Scheer frantically asks for do-over after accidentally voting for Trudeau

Just a little levity to celebrate.


Insiders suggest that Scheer’s moment of panic ensued immediately after dropping his voting slip into the box at the Mâmawęyatitân Centre polling location for Regina- Qu’Appelle. Witnesses close to the leader stated that Scheer’s face paled and flop sweat immediately poured down his back as the realization of what he had just done settled in. Though he initially tried to pretend like nothing had happened, the fear that the press could catch wind of the blunder was apparently too much for Scheer to handle. Reports that security personnel were required to intervene in order to pry Scheer’s fingers out of the narrow cardboard slit into which the vote was cast are still unconfirmed.

“I just….. I’ve just been thinking about Trudeau so much lately. Like, EVERY DAY. And I guess he was on my mind when I was filling out my vote and….. I just….. I just….” the leader stammered as tears welled up in the corners of his eyes. “It’s not fair!”

“Ok, just give me five minutes with the voting box. I totally know which one is mine ‘cause I drew little devil horns on the names of all the other candidates before I filled it out,” Scheer requested, having regained his composure. “I can just scoop it out and totally pretend this never happened. No fuss, no muss.”

After being forcibly ejected from the polling centre for causing a scene, Scheer immediately initiated a conference call with Justin Trudeau telling him that it would be so funny if he would vote for the Conservatives “as a total goof.”

Homemade breakfast sausage recipe!

This one requires a little bit of specialized equipment! We're using the meat grinder attachment on our KitchenAid for this, but there are other meat grinding options, of course. The trick here is to keep everything as cold as possible! You may wish to keep both the bowl you're taking the chunks from and the bowl that the ground sausage is ending up in ice baths to make sure everything stays at a good low temperature. If things get too warm, you end up with fat rendering out, and it won't emulsify properly for the final sausage.

We did this into saran wrap to make patties, but of course if you have the necessary equipment, you can extrude this filling into casings for individual sausage links. The flavour profile we used is very much a breakfast sausage (though a bit too garlicky for my personal taste), but you can personalize this however you like!

Spiced Canned Pears in Syrup Recipe

So, last week we did the neon pink cinnamon candy canned pears, this year we're doing a much more rustic spiced canned pear recipe. This is a basic canning procedure using a light syrup and some delicious whole spices to infuse the pears with flavour. The nice thing about canning fresh fruit like this is that it maintains their flavour and colour for a long long time, especially if you do the full canning procedure, and is shelf stable (until opened) for a year or more.

You can change the flavour profile however you like for this. Also, if you have whole star anise, it looks much more dramatic than the broken bits we had.

Hot Tamales Cinnamon Candy-canned Pears

So, hubby and I live in Ontario, but my hubby comes from Texas originally. One thing we love about Ontario is the vast amount of amazing fresh fruit and veggies we get here all summer. It's coming down to the end of that season at this point, but a couple of weeks ago, I got these fantastic fresh pears! Hubby wanted to do some canning, and we're going to do a more traditional rustic spiced canned pear episode next week, but this week we're revisiting his childhood in Texas with hot cinnamon candy-canned pears!

Traditionally this recipe is done with Red Hots, but we had a very hard time finding them. We did manage to get our hands on Hot Tamales, pretty easily, though! The only real difference between the two is that Red Hots are a harder candy all the way through, and Hot Tamales has a gummy centre. Sort of like Red Hots wrapped around a gummy candy. Anyway, it worked pretty well, and we ended up with these amazing bright pink pears!

Mango Jicama Slaw Recipe

While we had these nice fresh and ripe mangoes, we wanted to do a salad with them, too. So, we made this very simple and delicious mango jicama slaw. The mangoes have lots of bright flavour, and the jicama has an amazing crunchy texture. They go very well together, and honestly need very little in the way of dressing or additional flavours. We just dress this with a bit of lime juice, salt, and green onion and cilantro.

This dish goes as a great side for grilled meats, or any number of rich and fatty things. We ate it with the roasted pork we made in last week's video, and it was just a perfect accompaniment.

Canadian Far-Right Party Becomes Official, Outs All Its Members

As per Elections Canada rules, the names of the Canadian Nationalist Party members became public when the party became legit—the members' identities were quickly amplified by anti-fascists.

From the full article here: https://www.vice.com/en_ca/article/43knzp/canadian-far-right-party-becomes-official-outs-all-its-members

Last month the Canadian Nationalist Party (CNP) became an official party in Canada. To attain this status, a party provided Elections Canada with 250 names of members. These names become public information when party status is granted. Knowing this, the Canadian Anti-Hate Network, Anti-Racist Canada, and Yellow Vest Canada Exposed (YVCE) threatened to release the names if they ever became a party.

Well, the anti-fascists kept their word, and released the names on Thursday—VICE has viewed the documents.

The Canadian Anti-Hate Network describes the CNP as “a neo-Nazi party.” The party’s far-right leanings are obvious. Their “demographic policy” explicitly endorses white nationalism, reading "we must maintain the demographic status of the current European-descended majority.” The party infamously published a screed against “parasitic tribes” in June, was accused of anti-Semitism, then put out a correction months later claiming they weren’t talking about Jews.

Seemingly as a response, the CNP posted the names on their website after they were posted by the anti-fascists. In a video accompanying the post, Patron praised the people as "heroes," but doesn’t give a reason why he posted the names. The names are tabulated in the same way as the anti-racists, leading Liz from YVCE to think Patron straight-up copy-and-pasted it from their site in a ploy to show "that it doesn't bother them." Obviously some members were confused by Patron posting the names and one asked if he had "permission" to post the information.

Great, split that vote on the right even further. Make Scheer scrabble with Bernier to get those white nationalists who think they're both too centrist.

Apricot Raspberry Jam Glazed Pork Loin Recipe

A couple of weeks ago, we put up a video for homemade apricot raspberry jam, which was extremely delicious. This week, we're going to cover a pork loin with that jam and roast it! This is basically a method for making a simple fruit marinade out of some jam or preserves with a little bit of added salt (the soy sauce) and some savoury garlic and ginger. The soy sauce helps set up an osmotic loop which helps the pork absorb flavour from the marinade.

You could obviously use any number of different fruit preserves for this. Keep an eye on it so it doesn't scorch, but it's got a great flavour and makes a great sweet and salty crust.
