Smoked Salmon, Smoked Gouda and Bell Pepper Frittata

Makes 2 10 in. Frittatas

This recipe freezes extremely well, so you can make them up ahead, freeze either whole or portion and freeze individual portions. If freezing make sure you wrap them well, as the egg mixture will pick up freezer odors if not wrapped tightly. To reheat from frozen, microwave on low for 1.5-2 minutes for individual pieces or oven bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. While we make everything fresh to order at the Rosewood, we have shared this recipe with others and have gotten great feedback about how well it freezes.

Preheat over to 325°

Whisk together:
  • 3 whole eggs
  • 9 egg yolks
  • 1 qt. Heavy Cream
  • 2 tble. fresh dill chopped finely
  • ½ tea. fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 tea. kosher salt

  • 1 lb. premium smoked salmon broken to medium to small pieces. Ducktrap Farms makes a very quality smoked salmon, hot smoked salmon can be used as well as a substitute or smoked mackerel or trout.
  • 1 lb. smoked gouda, cubed into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 lb. shredded sharp cheddar, Cabot is recommended.
  • 2 red peppers, sautéed, drained of liquid and chilled or room temperature
  • 2 green bell peppers, sautéed, drained of liquid and chilled or room temperature

1. In well greased spring form pans, or alternatively, spring form pans lined with parchment paper, alternate salmon, cheeses and peppers until well distributed between both pans. Pour the egg mixture over the top until it reaches about 1 inch below the top of the pans.

2. Bake for approximately an hour and a quarter or until the pans when shaken lightly don’t wiggle in the middle. Baking time will vary depending on electric or gas ovens. A knife when inserted into the middle should come out clean and warm to the touch. If serving immediately, let set on the counter for about 10+ minutes.

This dish can be served hot or cold. Accompaniments on top are a nice salsa or a dilled sour cream (fresh dill, a little honey, fresh garlic, sour cream and salt and pepper to taste)

Hiking the Emerald Necklace in New Hampshire

CONCEIVED IN THE MID-EIGHTIES by a group of creative environmentalists associated with the Ausbon Sargent Land Preservation Trust, the Society for the Protection of N.H. Forests, the Lake Sunapee Protective Association and with local conservationists, the Sunapee-Ragged-Kearsarge Greenway Coalition has evolved into a dynamic, non-profit corporation led by directors whose towns have SRKGC trails: Andover, Danbury, Goshen, Newbury, New London, Springfield, Sunapee, Sutton, Warner and Wilmot The Greenway’s mission is to create and maintain a forever-green great circle of trail corridors and protected lands providing walkers with access to the mountains, lakes, vistas and historical sites of the region.
The "necklace" of more than 75 trail miles was created with the cooperation of private landowners and local and state authorities. It passes through forests, over mountains, and via old Class VI roads. Many of these roads were used extensively as many as two centuries ago.
Maintaining the Greenway, improving its pathways and creating new ones, some to form links with other famous hiking areas such as Monadnock and Cardigan mountains, are tasks undertaken by SRKGC members. Your membership, and offer to help, will always be welcome.

Biking the Northern Rail Trail

At 56 miles, the Northern Rail Trail spans Grafton and Merrimack counties and
is the longest rail-trail in New Hampshire. The surface is cinder ballast in
Grafton and stone dust in Merrimack; both easily bike able on hybrids or
mountain bikes. The northern half of the trail in Grafton County follows
the scenic Mascoma Valley as it goes south from Lebanon to Grafton. Trail
development began here in the mid-1990s when the recently abandoned Boston &
Maine's Northern Line was purchased by the State of New Hampshire. Volunteers,
including local snowmobile clubs, removed the thousands of railroad ties left
behind by rail salvagers and decked the many bridges along the line.
Leaving from the trailhead in downtown Lebanon, the trail follows the
Mascoma River, crossing it seven times in just the first few miles.
