YOUR RECIPE with Lorna Jackson.
Chorizo and Tees Cider THIS a classic Spanish Tapas and a great way to celebrate Saltburn Farmers' Market newest trader-Tees Cider! e meaty Chorizo (available on the market or at Real Meals) goes perfectly with Tees Cider, a dry fruity Cider made in Redcar!
Simply put two or three fresh chorizo into a small pan and cover with cider. Bring up to the boil and simmer for 20 mins until the liquid has reduced by about half. Take the chorizo, let it cool and cut into thick slices. Serve in the warm cider- traditionally in a clay earthen ware dish!
And for something a little more complicated...
Chicken and Cider Casserole INGREDIENTS: One free range chicken, one onion - sliced, four cloves of garlic - crushed, one tsp cumin seeds, two bay leaves, one tsp paprika (not smoked), six cloves, six cardamom pods - slightly crushed, half tsp cinnamon or a cinnamon stick, 2oz of whole almonds, three or four slices of 'stale' bread - cut into cubes, lots of fresh parsley METHOD: Joint the chicken and brown in a casserole dish in a little olive oil. Remove the chicken and rest it on a plate. Saute the onions in the casserole pan until soft, add the crushed garlic, the cumin seeds, paprika cloves, cardamom pods, cinnamon, nutmeg and fry for a minute.
Put the chicken back in the dish, cover with cider and simmer for 20 mins until the chicken is cooked. If needed you can top up with chicken stock or water to stop the dish drying out.
Meanwhile dry fry the whole almonds and remove from the pan. Fry the 'stale' bread in a little oil until crispy. When the chicken is cooked pour the casserole juices into a jug, add the almonds and bread and 'blitz' with a magic stick. Return this liquid to the casserole to slightly thicken the sauce. Top with fresh parsley and serve.
