Summer: roll out the ice box, set up the grill, kick back and let the fire do the cookin'. Fall: visit the local apple orchard and pick your favorite variety of apples for apple pie. Winter: ham, duh! Spring: juice oranges and strawberries are coming back into season!! Next summer: roll out the ice box and start it all over again!What is Jambalaya?
1. What is Jambalaya?
What is Jambalaya?
One of my favorite dishes from Southern Louisiana is the 2nd Line classic: Jambalaya. Not only do I love all the spice that the dish packs, but I love how easy it is to make. Once you've got the ingredients, you can produce the dish in under two hours time, which isn't bad considering it can be made in huge batches to feed a crowd. The most unusual ingredient in the dish is a type of ham widely found in the bayou, known as Tasso. While it's hard to find locally, it's easy to order online, and adds a huge amount to the dish.
