    Not sure where to post this so, here goes.

    Wife bought me two apple trees for my birthday last fall. One Braeburn and one Granny Smith. The first few fruits of the former - culled them today. Apparently for the first couple years you pick the fruit quick so the tree directs its energy to growing bigger rather than growing fruit. Not ready for prime time but still reasonably tasty.

    I’d like to add a Harrison apple tree at some point. These were trees native to the Newark area in the 1700’s and it’s descendants have been (RE)discovered in NY/NJ in recent years. There’s a reason that hard cider was the main drink of colonial era Americans rather than beer or rum.

    Pan fried duck breast with rhubarb, ginger and star anise.

    Made this one up as I went along. Sometimes, that's a disaster but this time, not so much.

    Pan fry duck breast in its own rendered fat (technique is here)

    Pour off pan fat for use with potatoes later (yum).

    While resting duck breast in a separate pan, deglaze frying pan with ginger beer (preferably mine), add finely sliced rhubarb stem, garlic, star anise and a blob of Turkish visne receli (jammed cherries). Reduce until bubbles open, pour over duck breast.

    Serve with Nebbiolo or Pinot Noir.

    Definitely going to try this whole recipe which is making my mouth water even though I am just having morning coffee.

    But this duck fat in potatoes is one of the greatest food hacks of all time. Every restaurant in Mont Tremblant of any quality does this when making pommes frites and it is delightful.
    If I knew what I was doing, Id be doing it right now

    You can substitute ginger juice and white wine for the ginger beer.
