LIVE with Kelly & Michael

By Jenn Burka | November 5, 2015

Marcus Samuelsson appears LIVE on Kelly and Michael and makes a "Swediopian" Sweet Potato Mash

I had such a good time appearing on Kelly & Michael in Washington, DC last week. They challenged me to make a dish using the beautiful fall Sweet Potato. I went “Swediopian” with it, adding some Ethiopian Berbere, keeping it chunky, and serving it with Swedish Meatballs and a Raw Kale Salad. This side dish would be a great way to add some flavor to any fall meal. Try it for Thanksgiving for a new take on a classic.

Autumn tends to have some of the best produce. It’s like nature’s last kiss before winter begins and the farmers market sees the influx of root vegetables. The best way to take advantage of autumnal flavors, just like the produce of spring and summer, is to preserve and can what you are able to so you can enjoy them year round. Apple Butter is a great way to save your prize from a day of apple picking. Don’t be afraid to keep the apples with the bruises—they make the butter all the sweeter.

It is October, Fall is knocking on the door and soon the winter will be here again. The days are becoming shorter and shorter here up in the North of Sweden and soon the days will only see about 5 hours of sunlight. The moose hunt season is drawing to a close and the woods are lush with color. Fall is the season for mushrooms, beets, lingonberries, blueberries and if you are lucky, you might even find some cloudberries. Read More

Pumpkins: America’s favorite squash.  Surprisingly enough, we only seem to use it for three things-pumpkin pie, roasted pumpkin seeds, and jack-o-lanterns. Though carving jack-o-lanterns brings the kind of joy that biting bologna- wrestling masks gave me as a child, I feel that we are not using the pumpkin to its potential.  And pumpkin potential must be properly harnessed to make the most of the Fall season.

Check out these pumpkin facts.  WARNING-Please try all of these at home. Read More
