Oregon Hazelnut Crema Sauce Recipe

 

From: Margy Buchanan, Founder/Owner, Tyee Wine Cellars and Hazelnut Grower, Buchanan Family Century Farm

 

Makes About 2 Cups

 

1 ½ cups Oregon Hazelnuts

½ cup plus 1 Tbs. Extra-virgin olive oil (divided)

1 cup red onion, diced

¼ cup Tyee Pinot gris

Sea salt to taste

Freshly ground pepper to taste

 

Roast hazelnuts on a cookie sheet in the oven a 350 degrees for about 20 minutes, stirring twice during the process. Wrap in coarse towel and rub to flake off most of the skins. Keep wrapped and roll occasionally until cooled to room temperature.

 

Meanwhile, saute the red onions gently over medium heat in 1 Tbs. Olive oil, and a generous pinch of salt. The onions should be golden and tender. (caramelized) Remove from heat.

 

In a food processor, whirl nuts until broken, then add onions and pinot gris and process until creamy. Taste and add more salt if needed. With the processor running, gradually add the remaining ½ cup olive oil, maintaining creamy texture, as in creamy hummus. If it is too thick, add a little water.  Transfer to a bowl and taste again for seasoning. This is the time to add the pepper. Cover and keep at room temperature for up to two hours.  The Crema can be made up to 3 days ahead and stored in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator, but bring to room temperature before serving.

 

Note: This delicious sauce has many uses: Under roasted asparagus garnished with chopped roasted hazelnuts and a finely grated flavorful dry cheese of your choice.  Spread on grilled bread or bruschetta with softly grilled veges.  As a sauce for pasta with oven roasted veges, cherry tomatoes and feta.  As a dip for assorted veges.  As a sauce for vegetarian pizza.  Your palette will give you even more ideas once you have tasted it!

June Newsletter

 

Dear Friends,

 

Happy June from Tyee Wine Cellars and the Buchanan Family Century Farm. We hope you are enjoying the sunshine and Tyee wines. Chuck Hill with Wines Northwest recommends 2010 Tyee Estate Pinot Noir with grilled Salmon. He says “Merrilee Buchanan Benson crafted this salmon-friendly wine from Tyee’s Pinot Noir plantings from vines 10 to 36 years old.  Look for seductive aromas of floral perfume, strawberry and baking spice, leading to flavors of tangy cherry, herbs and vanilla.” 2011 Tyee Gewurztraminer won Double Gold at the Oregon Wine Awards. We are running out of this wine and the 2011 Gold Medal Tyee Estate Pinot Gris. Tyee's 2011 whites are delicious, so get them while you can, and look forward to the 2012s coming soon. Tyee Wines can be purchased at www.tyeewine.com.
