Subject: New Years food

Well, tis the season. We like to serve symbolic foods on New Years, that represent new life. Thus far, have been told that any round foods, red, and eggs fit into this category. Anyone have anything a little more specific? Would like to have something other than tortellini in redsauce! oh yeah, also gotta be vegetarian, with no sugar. (that includes any honey, fruit sugar, etc. Fiddle player can't eat any sucrose) Thanks, all

Seems like asparagus would have a lot of new life symbolism even though it's cylindrical rather than spherical, and it's green instead of red.

I find that asparagus is quite tasty if it's blanched, and then marinated in sesame oil, rice wine vinegar, and a little soy sauce. (Served at room temperature.) You want the spears to be not more than a half inch in diameter for this dish.

Have a good New Year.

The best NY's food I ever served was a huge pot of chili beans, made from our own dried beans, our own tomatoes (dried and sauce), garlic and onions (lots of round stuff!), and large, homemade rolls, cornbread and a big salad. No sugar, as I recall, unless a little honey in the cornbread...and the pot of chili stayed warm all evening at the back of the woodstove,

just out of curiosity, when you say vegetarian, do you mean vegan? Or will you allow cream, fish, shellfish, etc.

Just give me an idea, and i'll offer some ideas for you.

Around here and where I grew up, the "Luck" foo for New Year's day was pork roast in Sauerkraut with a silver dollar cooked in it. We always have that with mashed taters and several years ago began adding in "Luck" foods from varios places we've lived, so dinner and appetizers also now include shrimp, crabcakes, black-eyed peas, and turnip greens. January 2 is now known as "Ass-Blast Day."

Hey youse--you can't let New Years Day pass without eating black eyed peas. Good ole' southern tradition for luck in the year. We cook them with bacon and rice (Hoppin' John) but you could leave out the bacon. All you have to eat is the black eyed peas.

Of course there is Hoppin John - traditional New Years fare.

My father ALWAYS had to have a bowl of soup at midnight on New Years Eve. He said it brought good luck.

Interesting that some have mentioned the black-eyed peas, as my mother always said that she was raised eating the traditional meal of black-eyed peas & cornbread on New Years Day for good luck through the year. While having nothing to do with food, my old music history professor told us that on New Years Day, one must utter to the first person one greets the following phrase for good luck in the New Year: "Rabbit, Rabbit!" If anyone has heard of that, or knows the origins, I would enjoy hearing about it.

Yeah, Sorcha is correct. We Southerners know that black-eyed peas AND cornbread are the absolute essentials for a prosperous year. In Mississippi, it is a deep-grained tradition. Over the years, there have been many clubs where I have performed on New Years Eve, and, at midnight, they serve everyone black-eyed peas and cornbread. One who chose not to partake was looked down upon as though he were a heathen dog.

My Dad kept this tradition every New Years Day, and included another. He would always work on New Years. He believed that this would insure plenty of work throughout the whole year.

Yup Sorkieluv,

In the South it's Black Eyed Peas, Collard Greens and cornbread. And you have to eat them all before the end of New Year's Day - No leftovers.

Even though I'm from England, that's a tradition that I've kept for over twenty years now.

It's traditions that hold our society together.

Bertie.

When Karen and I decided to add in all the regional things from places we'd lived, it became apparent that the New Year foods were great "flushers".....If you look at my list above (kraut, black-eye peas, greens, pork, crab), every one of them "digests" well, so to speak. Maybe this was the real thought behind them......you know, start the new year clean, or at least cleaned out. I guarantee that if you eat all of them you'll be clean as a whistle.....I suggest you don't go to work on the 2nd as another tradition.

Well, the family is from the south, so grew up with hamhocks and black eyed peas.....but gotta be veg, to make life easy with diverse group. And veg means NO animals, including (sob, sob) crab, or other finny friends. I'm not a strict veggie, but have players who haven't eaten flesh in 30+ years. Anyway, want the "good luck" and "long life" foods. Any ideas on making black eyed peas edible without hamhocks, anyone? Any other bright ideas?

Oh yeah, we say Rabbit, Rabbit too, but don't know the origans. Maybe snopes would know? And will have 10-18 people, depending on who is in town. Dairy is fine. Honey is not. No sucrose, in any form, unless on the side. Can make cornbread without sugar (remember, family from south, cornbread sacrilege) so might do that. Was gonna do biscuits, but cornbread sure sounds good this time o year.

Saute green onions (scallions) in butter. Simmer cooked black eyed peas with onions for oh, 30 minutes, I guess. Stir in half as much cooked rice. Hot sauce, salsa optional.

This New Year's we wanted something quick and warm. We had bacon, tomato and old cheddar sandwiches made with buttered dutch crust bread, toasted and served hot.
Most satisfying on a cold day.

I don't know of any traditional food for New Years Day in OZ, except that we always have shortbread.

We were still at a folk festival and we used up the tomatoes that were going mushy and had them with bacon and eggs for breakfast.

Much later we stopped at a pub in the Blue Mountains on the way home and had roast lamb with mint sauce and baked veges. And even though it is summer here, the temperature was a little cool and it was raining. Good weather for a roast!

Tomorrow it will be whatever is left over in the fridge.

Many thanks, Masato-san. I didn't know what traditional foods you had for this holiday. Since there are recipes provided, I may well try some of them out tomorrow (my day off from work). Thanks to anime, manga, and the Iron Chef television show, my teenaged children, especially my 14 year old daughter, are becoming interested in all things Japanese. We should have fun cooking these!

GUESTQ, I've only had those sandwiches in summer, when the tomatoes are ripe from our vegetable garden. I think I'll have to try this in the winter.
Hungrily, Hollowfox
