Cranberry Savories… Artichoke. Anchovy. Italian Giardiniera. Parmesan…NOSH.


Savories

Savory is about flavor and bouquet. Relish and chew. Subtle and soulful, pungent with zip.

One savory recipe with delicate silky artichoke and essence of Parmesan, the other with salty anchovy and piquant Italian Giardiniera. Both with a touch of sweet-tart, dried cranberry tang.

Voila! A Holiday Nosh.

The dough is Mama Mic’s Magic Dough posted 10-12-2010. But you can also use pre-made dough. Just don’t tell Mama.

Double-Dip Savory Tops into Orange Zest Glaze

Double-Dip Orange Zest Glaze

½ cup confectioners sugar

½ fresh orange juiced

zest of fresh orange

In small bowl mix sugar, orange and zest. I like using the zest with the anchovy because the zest in the glaze covers the funny little hairs of anchovy bones. (That didn’t sound right… but when you see it you’ll know what I mean.) Dip tops of savories into glaze, rest and dip again.
