Another visit to Ryan and Wood Distilleries…..and a recipe to go with it!

How can you not have a good time when visiting a distillery, huh?  You get intoxicated in the best possible way walking in the door by the aromas and it is fantastic.  Bob Ryan gave me the rundown on how to make rum from the molasses to the barreling and it was again so interesting.  So here is the recipe I came up with to use his delicious product in my kitchen for more than just making a cocktail–which is currently on my agenda!

Folly Cove Rum Marinated Pork Tenderloin with Pineapple Rum Salsa

For the pork:

1 large navel orange, zested and juiced
1/2 cup Folly Cove Rum
1/3 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey or agave nectar
2 teaspoons cumin
2 teaspoons minced garlic
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (or more to taste)
1 1 to 1 1/4 pound pork tenderloin, cleaned

In large zip top bag combine orange juice and zest, Folly Cove Rum, soy sauce, honey, cumin, garlic and cayenne pepper.  Drop in pork tenderloin and allow to marinate at least 6 hours but preferably over night.

When ready to cook, preheat oven to 350 degrees or outdoor grill to medium high.  Remove pork from marinade and pat dry.   If grilling indoors, preheat grill pan to nearly smoking.  Sear pork on all sides and finish in oven for 11-15 minutes until cooked to medium.  If cooking on an outside gas grill, sear both sides and the reduce the heat to cook the pork completely to the desired temperature.

Allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing in to 1/2″ rounds.  Top with Rum Pineapple Salsa and enjoy!

For the Rum Pineapple Salsa:

2 cups diced fresh pineapple
2 tablespoons diced onion
1/2 chop diced red bell pepper
3 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1-2 tablespoons agave nectar or honey
2 tablespoons Folly Cove Rum
1/2 to 1 teaspoon hot sauce (to taste)
Salt & pepper to taste

Combine all ingredients in a large bowl.  Refrigerate until ready to serve with Folly Cove Rum marinated pork.

Enjoy!  Serves 2-3 people

Judy Robinson Show Rockport Arts Association

Made it to the Judy Robinson solo show at the Rockport Arts Association this Sunday amidst the rain. White wine, salmon on cucumber and cheese doodles that looked like popcorn, my kind of snacks.

Here are two in the show for a sneak peek. One had a sign underneath that said you could touch the artwork. The other said “Do Not Touch!” Which do you think? (Just Click.) Even if my hands weren’t covered in cheese doodles I would not have dared to try to peel off a paint chip … 8)

A cool show that will be there until the 26th. Lots of Fort Point, Birdseye, the Paint Factory. My birthday present is still hanging in the middle gallery. I might have to get a sump pump as a belated birthday present instead.

Our One Pool Day In Naples

Lest anyone think the weather only sucks here in Ma, we’re not alone.   It was pretty crummy if you like the warm weather in Florida as well.  We only got one day in the pool as it was eitrher raining or cool there as well.

We still had a fantastic time spending a lot of it at the great parks Naples has to offer but I’m really looking forward to having my feet in the sand a bit more.

One guy on the Naples Pier said that he hadn’t remembered in 60 years of living in Naples a winter as cold as this past one and that from Christmas til  the day we went in the pool there wasn’t a single day he would have considered a beach day. 

The girls were great though and although the weather wasn’t all that I ‘d still consider the trip a success.
