It’s no wonder Door County is a foodie’s haven when there is access to farmers markets all summer and plentiful orchards each fall. When using fresh, local ingredients is no challenge, you just need a good recipe! We are counting down the top seven most watched recipes in our Savor Door County video series for you to use throughout the year.
Towards the end of summer when you have an abundance of tomatoes, this recipe will help you turn them into a quick and savory appetizer in no time. The recipe uses a total of three ingredients including fresh cut chives and creamy ricotta.
6. Ramp Risotto
In early May you can forage for wild ramps, a plant similar to the onion with distinctively tasty flavor. Create an impressive dinner by using the ramps in a white wine risotto and topping with an aged parmesan.
The highly sought after morel mushroom makes this pasta a rare and delicious treat. Forage or find the morels at a farmers market and use alongside springtime asparagus for a meal worth savoring.
Fall flavors burst from this sweet and chunky apple sauce made using local apples. Add pecans for crunch and serve over vanilla ice cream for dessert.
Another autumn favorite combines local apples with pork. A pan-fried pork chop pairs with the brown sugar apple slices in a way that will make your mouth water.
A simple step of roasting garlic takes your cheese plate appetizer from standard to a step above. Serve alongside creamy goat cheese and toasted sourdough for a perfect pre-dinner platter.
Our most watched video highlights the pride of Door County orchards - the cherry. A classic summer pie is rather simple to create from scratch with a pail of fresh-picked cherries or frozen ones ready to use in the winter.
