Recipe Spotlight

Gazpacho is common fare here in the Southwest, and its variations are numerous. This one is simple, inexpensive, healthful and delicious. It works well as an appetizer, brunch dish or accompaniment to any meat entree. I prefer to make the tomato base the night before, but I've also made it early in the morning for serving with that night's supper.

Field peas that have been dried (split peas) have been a staple soup ingredient for country cooks for years. One super recipe is Wisconsin Split Pea Soup. The recipe was sent in by field editor Linda Rock (left) of Stratford. "Marjoram, garlic, potatoes and carrots blend nicely with peas in this hearty and economical soup," Linda confirms. "I also plant peas in my garden each year," she says. "They grow so well here that I pick enough to freeze and enjoy all winter."
