Not only is there still PLENTY of time for more BBQ’s, but there are also some big events still to come this August in the Edmonton area – Folk Fest, the Fringe Festival, and plenty more. Know what all those events and backyard BBQ’s have in common?
They are all in need of accompanying snacks!
Enter five delicious ways to use Newget this August..
1) Newget trail mix.
Just add your favourite fruits and nuts with some chopped up bits of your favourite Newget flavour. Easy-peasy! This would make for a great hiking snack, or even bring it along with you to the Folk Fest weekend.
2) Newget cookies!
Not too long ago one of our lovely Newget peeps experimented with some Newget 3 Pepper Zinger crumbles & a basic Brown Sugar Recipe.. The the result was a delicious Three-Pepper Zinger Newget cookie with great texture & a little bit of zing & zap in the flavor.
Brown Sugar/3-Pepper Zinger Newget Crumble Cookies
1 cup softened margarine or butter
1 1/3 cup dark brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
½ tsp vanilla
¾ cup 3-Pepper Zinger Newget Crumbles
Beat butter and sugar until creamy. Add the eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and Newget Crumbles. Mix well.
3 ¼ cups flour
1 ¼ tsp baking soda
¾ tsp cinnamon
¼ tsp salt
Gradually stir the dry ingredients into the wet. Cream well (I used the beaters for every addition of dry ingredients.) Spray cookie sheet with cooking spray. Roll generous balls of dough in your hands and place evenly on a cookie sheet. 375 degree oven for approx 12-14 minutes.
Makes over 3 dozen cookies. Newget crumbles are available from The Newget Kompany.
3) Add a delicious and refreshing Newget/cheese/fruit platter to your next BBQ.
Slice up some delicious cheeses, and serve with some yummy fresh fruit and Newget. There are so many delcious ways to serve this, you just can’t go wrong.
4) Have your own night of wine pairing!
Wine and chocolate make a great combo, there is really no way to go wrong with matching, so have fun with experimenting! One of our favourite combos is a mini chocolate dessert: 85% dark chocolate drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled with sea salt & paired with a dessert port. Heavenly!
5) Bring s’more fun to your next camping trip or backyard fire pit with, you guessed it, Newget s’mores.
So many delicious combinations for this one! At least as far as we can imagine.. We haven’t found time to test them all…
There you have it, five ways to spice up your August events!
