Round-up of Grow Your Own #46


 This month, the submissions for GYO was awesome. Let's check out what our dear foodies cooked up with what they grew in their gardens and received as gifts from friends and family.
Shannon of  Tri to Cook (Boston, Massachusets, USA) used porcini mushrooms she received as a gift and created a homemade Wild Mushroom Pasta from scratch! Fresh pasta cooks so quickly and the flavor is amazing!  More so when topped with Mushroom-Goat Cheese Sauce.  Can I have a plate please?
Jenny of Southernfriedcurry (Georgia, USA) made a super spicy jalapeno carrot pickle with the bountiful harvest of jalapenos from her garden (she used 13 jalapenos for this recipe!!) and rainbow carrots.  The spicy pickles go so well with quesadilla and can jazz up any meal!

Heather of Girliehef (Indiana, USA) offers everyone a a luscious dessert with her pepitas and cinnamon streusel-topped skillet pear crisp from organic yellow pears she received from her generous neighbors. Yum!

I, Momgateway (USA) of Momgateway:Portal to Healthy Cooking and Recipes recently bought a stove-top smoker and decided to smoke tomatoes and habaneros from my container garden and pair them with homemade smoked salmon in an amazingly moist and delicious Smoked Salmon with Tomatoes and Habanero!

Johanna of Green Gourmet Giraffe (Melbourne, Australia) roasted some cauliflowers and topped it with a sauce made with tahini and pomegranate syrup in Roasted Cauliflower with Tahini Sauce


Dorothy of Shockinglydelicious (California, USA) had leftover basil-honey dressing and decided to punch up the flavor of hard-boiled eggs in her Sweet Basil Deviled Eggs!

Soma of eCurry (Texas, USA) made Barley and Spinach Fall Salad with Maple Syrup Vinaigrette with spinach from her garden, pears and pomegranates---perfect for fall!


Annie Kate of Teatime with Annie Kate (Ontario, Canada) made a huge batch of sauerkraut from the huge crop of cabbage they harvested.

This was GYO #46 round-up was so much fun!  Thanks to Andrea and everyone who participated in Grow Your Own #46.  If you are interested in hosting GYO, get in touch with Andrea of Andrea Meyers: cooking, gardening, & four hungry guys.

What a great roundup. Somehow I can't seem to take my eyes off of the jalapeno carrot entry. Everyone did a fabulous job.

I'm very impressed with how everyone is growing their own food. .
