Recipes for Early Autumn – Loaded Pumpkin Fries
- 1 medium-sized pumpkin
- 2 tsp cornflour
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp fajita seasoning
- 150g Primula Cheese ‘n’ Jalapenos
- Handful of fresh coriander, to garnish
- Using a sharp knife, slice the pumpkin in half. Scoop out the seeds and pulp.
- Remove the ends from the pumpkin, peel and slice into fries.
- Place the pumpkin fries in a large bowl and cover with cold water. Let the fries soak for at least 30 minutes, but preferably overnight.
- When the fries have finished soaking, pre-heat your oven to 220°
- Drain the fries and pat dry with paper towels.
- Fill a large zip-lock bag with the fries. Add the cornflour, seal the bag and shake to cover the fries. Add the oil and fajita seasoning to the fries and shake well, covering them evenly.
- Spread the fries in a single layer on a lined baking tray. Allow the fries plenty of space to ensure they’re perfectly crisp. You may need a couple of trays.
- Place in the oven for 10 – 15 minutes, flipping once halfway through, until the fries are crisp and golden.
- Remove from the oven. Squeeze over the Primula Cheese and scatter the coriander.
- Serve immediately.
Recipes for Early Autumn – Bonfire Night Catherine Wheels
- Primula Cheese ‘n’ Ham
- 1 sheet of ready-rolled puff pastry
- Flour for dusting
- 1 small red pepper, diced
- 1 small green pepper, diced
- 1 small yellow pepper, diced
- Unroll the pastry sheet, keeping the paper. Dust each side lightly with flour and place back on its paper. Roll out lengthways until the pastry is the same length as the paper.
- Spread the cheese over the pastry sheet then sprinkle with diced peppers, making sure to cover the pastry all the way up to the edges.
- Place the pastry with the short end facing you and roll up carefully – as you would a Swiss roll.
- Transfer the pastry roll to a baking tray lined with parchment paper and place in the freezer for 20 minutes to firm up.
- Pre-heat the oven to 200°C.
- Carefully slice the pastry roll into 1cm rounds. Do not cut the rounds too thick or they won’t bake evenly.
- Place the rounds back on the lined baking tray and put in the oven for around 15-20 minutes
