Puree Suggestions


I'm making a 5 spiced rub for pork, most likely be braising this, what would be some good suggestions as far as a puree, I was thinking creamy polenta or parsnip puree. Looking for some inspiration here :) Thanks

  1. Hi,
    If the pork is going to have a little pop in it just a nice Stone Ground Cheese Grits.

      That's what I'm thinking, thanks for you sugguestion.

        May I suggest Anson Mills Stone Ground Grits. They are a bit course but have that wonderful corn flavor. Polenta to me is nothing unless its jazzed up and I am italian and I prefer grits.

        1. re: Frank Terranova

          What about Red Mill's stone ground grits? I'm not sure where to find Anson Mills.

    2. I'm thinking a Butternut squash and Apple Polenta flavored by a bit of Thai Red curry.

        That sounds interesting, I'm thinking keep it on the Asian side, Thai curry would be good, is the red curry powerful? I don't like pungent curries.

        1. re: tfranca

          So butternut squash and apple polenta, together?

      2. Asian puree makes me think 'daikon.'
