Cooking in Nova Scotia (July 2009)

scallopsWhile in Nova Scotia, we cooked up a few good meals using great local ingredients.  Nothing too fancy, but really delicious meals with a local flavor.  One night, we made sauteed scallops with sugar snap peas, using local sea scallops (pronounced “scawl-ups” by the locals).  Borden, a local Nova Scotian, prepared breaded haddock fillets (prounounced “fill-its” by the locals).  And, on the side, we had fresh strawberries with basil soaked in brandy.  Not bad.

The next day, we roasted a pork shoulder in a giant pan filled with locally-made sauerkraut.  This is a local recipe, which my father picked up from the man who mows lawns in the neighborhood.  The pork, which is cooked for several hours at a low temperature in the sauerkraut, just falls off the bone.  In the last hour, we filled the pan with potatoes, carrots, and onions, which cooked in nicely.  Oh, so good!
