Roasted Garlic and Sumac Slow Cooker Sauce- February 12th 12017 Update

Friends For Jeff Spiegelman,

This is a public service announcement: Tuesday is Valentine’s Day….


-On Friday is the annual Kent County School District Superintendent Breakfast at Lake Forest High. I really enjoy these meetings because it allows me to hear a lot of issues facing education right now.


-Saturday is the annual Kent County GOP Lincoln Day Dinner. The guest speaker this year is Foxnews personality Judge Jeanine.


-Our initial date/time fell through for the Governor’s visit to one of my coffee meetings. However, the Governor is still interested in visiting the coffee meetings of elected officials in order to talk about the budget. I am in the process of coordinating with his staff which of the meetings below would be best for that. Standby for more details as I make them available.


-I am happy to announce my next round of constituent meetings that will be held through March 2017. I invite constituents and non-constituents alike to stop by one of the following meetings to share a question or concern about a legislative or district matter that may be on their mind:


·         ICE CREAM SOCIAL – Wednesday, February 22nd 12-noon to 1 p.m. – Mamie Warren Senior Center (1775 Wheatleys Pond Road, Smyrna). Join Jeff for a free scoop of ice cream. 

·         COFFEE MEETING AT NEW LOCATIONThursday, March 9th – 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – The Drunk’n Baker (1 N. Main Street, Smyrna)

·         MEET & GREET/WINE TASTINGFriday, March 17th –  5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. – Harvest Ridge Winery (447 Westville Road, Marydel, DE)

·         COFFEE MEETING – Tuesday, March 21st 8 a.m. to 9 a.m. – The Young Bean Coffee Shop (314 Main Street, Clayton)


Sumac, as a spice, is NOT the stuff that gives you an annoying rash. It is made from crushed berries and has a unique citrus/sour/tartness that goes well with meats that do not have a robust flavor.

-2 oz. sumac

-1 large clove garlic, pressed

-1 tbsp olive oil

-1 cup shredded carrots

-1 small onion, sliced

-1 large apple, quartered

-juice from 1/2 lemon

-meat of your choice (pork, chicken, or small wild game)


Cook the garlic in the olive oil on low/medium heat until golden brown. Combine all the ingredients and the meat in a slow cooker. Add enough water so there is an inch in the pot. Cook on low until desired doneness. When it is cooked and still hot, add the lemon juice. The broth can be added to rice, used for gravy, or for dipping bread and rolls.


— Thanks.
