The holiday months are a festive time of the year filled with friends and families gathering together to celebrate one another and the year. Whether it’s over a dinner table or across the kitchen table, great food and wine are passed and poured as we toast the people that make our lives special. For the third year, Gallo Family VineyardsŽ is offering a simple way for Americans to help seniors who may not be surrounded by friends, family and the abundance of food that is traditionally associated with the holidays. There are more than 8 million seniors that face the threat of hunger every day. With the third annual Gallo Family Vineyards Every Cork Counts™ the simple act of entertaining with wine and mailing in the cork will help to end senior hunger. Gallo Family Vineyards invites America to join them to raise up to $100,000* for Meals On Wheels Association of AmericaŽ (MOWAA). Making a difference in the lives of these seniors in need can be as simple as uncorking a bottle of wine or signing into Facebook. The corks from any bottle of Gallo Family Vineyards portfolio of approachable and foodfriendly wines can be mailed back through December 31, 2012. For every cork mailed back a $5 donation will be made to MOWAA. Additionally, a simple, fun Facebook game can be played to make virtual corks count to raise money and awareness for this important cause. More information is available at www.

“We are proud to support Meals On Wheels Association of America’s mission to end senior hunger,� says Stephanie Gallo, a third generation Gallo family member. “For the third year in a row, the Every Cork Counts program gives Gallo Family Vineyards and the thousands of Americans who enjoy our wines an easy way to support this important cause.� In the spirit of the season and this important cause, Gallo Family Vineyards has opened its family cookbook to share a recipe for the holidays. This sweet apple cake is a wonderful dessert to serve after a homecooked dinner or as a warm treat to greet guests stopping over for some holiday cheer. The orange and walnut glaze pairs wonderfully with the citrus notes in the Gallo Family Vineyards Moscato. And when the last guest leaves, be sure to send in the corks to make every cork count to end senior hunger for Meals On Wheels Association of America. *Gallo will donate $5 for each Gallo Family Vineyards cork mailed between August 1, 2012 and December 31, 2012 and received by January 10, 2013 to Meals On Wheels Association of AmericaŽ, up to $90,000. Gallo will also donate $0.10 for each consumer who participates in the Facebook app for a maximum total donation of $10,000 during the social media promotion.

Herb Rub Oven-Braised Pulled Pork Yield: 8 to 10 servings Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 2 3/4 to 3 1/4 hours


1 3-pound boneless pork shoulder or sirloin roast 2 teaspoons dried sage leaves 2 teaspoons dried thyme leaves 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 teaspoon dried rosemary leaves 1 tablespoon canola oil or other neutral-flavored oil 1 cup chicken broth


Preheat an oven to 300°F. In a small bowl, combine the sage, thyme, salt, and rosemary. Rub the mixture over all sides of the meat, pressing it to adhere (if the meat is tied together with twine or netting, just rub the seasoning right over it). In a large Dutch oven or large ovenproof skillet with a tight-fitting lid over medium-high heat, warm the oil. Add the pork and brown on all sides, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer the meat to a plate and set aside. Add the broth to the pan, scraping up any browned bits. Bring the broth to a boil, and then return the pork to the pan. Cover and bake until the pork is very tender, 2 1/4 to 2 3/4 hours. Transfer the meat to a cutting board and let rest 10 to 15 minutes. Use two forks to shred meat into bite-sized pieces. Moisten/season with cooking juices to taste.

Serving Suggestions

If you like, you can make this a stovetop braise, slowly simmering it on the stovetop instead of in the oven. And feel free to experiment with the amounts and types of herbs, or use your favorite herb blend. Enjoy the pork in pulled pork risotto, added to a grilled cheese sandwich, or piled on top of a big green salad.

Pulled Pork Goes Beyond the Bun If America had a signature dish, it might just be the pulled pork sandwich. This timeless favorite has already captured our hearts – so isn’t it time to discover new favorites? Offering ample leftovers and delicious versatility, pulled pork is finally getting a new look and going beyond the bun. New takes on pulled pork will revitalize and add a flavorful dose of creativity to family mealtime. Once the pulled pork is prepared, it can be enjoyed throughout the week in so many ways — with effortless wraps, salads, pizzas, vibrant tacos and more. Wake up your everyday dinner routine with these mouthwatering ideas from the National Pork Board: • Pulled Pork Wrap: For an easy lunch, combine pulled pork, chopped romaine lettuce, Parmesan cheese and Caesar dressing in a flour tortilla. If enjoying at home, warm


the wrap in a sandwich press or skillet for a restaurant-quality touch. • Pulled Pork Fried Rice: Put down that Chinese take-out menu! Fried rice is a

great way to use up leftover protein, rice and veggies. In this flavorful stir-fry, classic Americana meets Asia with a combination of white or brown rice, pulled pork, diced vegies and a lightly beaten egg.

• BBQ Pulled Pork Pizza: Think past your basic pizza night with this sweet and savory take: top store-bought pizza dough with barbecue sauce, your favorite cheese, pulled pork and sliced green onions. Bake on high heat until the cheese is melted and the crust is golden brown. • Pulled Pork Scramble: Pulled pork for breakfast? Absolutely. Add leftover pulled pork to a scramble of eggs, onions, bell peppers and cheese. Served alongside sliced tomatoes and buttered toast, it’ll feel just like Sunday brunch — even on a Monday night. To prepare perfect pulled pork, follow these simple tips from the National Pork Board: • The Cuts: The best roasts for preparing pulled pork include the hearty, succulent Boston Blade Roast (also known as the Boston Butt), which comes from the pork shoulder, and the leaner, flavorful pork sirloin roast,

Taste of Home

from the lower end of the loin. • The Temperature: For fall-apart pork, your best tools are patience and indirect heat. If preparing the roast in the oven or on the grill, the ideal “low and slow” preparation calls for temperatures between 250 and 300°F, for 1 to 1 1/2 hours per pound. In a slow cooker, heat pork for 6 to 8 hours on low or 4 to 5 hours on high. • The Pull: When finished cooking, remove from heat and let sit, covered in foil, for 10 to 15 minutes. “Pull” or shred meat with two large forks, and place in a large baking dish or pan. Discard any remaining fat, drizzle with sauce if desired, and serve.

Introducing the LIGHT Way to Do Sweet — Domino® Light and C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend The makers of Domino® Sugar and C&H® Sugar introduce the newest product to their family of sweeteners, Domino® Light and C&H® Light. The new Light products are an all-natural blend of pure cane sugar and stevia, with half the calories of sugar. By blending pure cane sugar with naturally sweet stevia, and a natural flavor to enhance the taste, Domino Foods has created a delicious light sweetener with no artificial ingredients. The stevia plant has been used for centuries as a sweetener. Pure cane sugar and zero-calorie stevia come together in Domino® Light and C&H® Light to create the ideal sweetener – a perfect sweet taste and half the calories of sugar. Both brands, Domino® Light and C&H® Light, are available in two package sizes, a 40count packet box and a 2 lb. re-sealable pouch. The 40-Count packet box is convenient for quick, portion control servings for beverages or for sprinkling on fruit or cereal. Individual packets of our sugar and stevia blend are ideal for travel, in offices, or for everyday convenience. Domino® Light and CH® Light packets are a perfect, low-calorie sweetener

solution, with only 5 calories per packet. The 2 lb. pouch offers the sweetness equivalent of a 4 lb. bag of sugar and is ideal for baking or for everyday sweetening. The re-sealable pouch makes scooping and storing easy and mess-free. And it’s easy to convert your recipes—just replace 1 cup of sugar with 1/2 cup of Domino® or C&H® Light Sugar & Stevia Blend to lighten your recipe by 350 calories. “With most lower-calorie sweetener substitutes, baking success can be limited. Domino® and C&H® Light make baking lower-calorie recipes easier, with better quality and without forgoing taste,” states Domino Foods Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Maria Machita. Ms. Machita goes on to explain how Domino Foods created the unique sweetness of their new product, “We added a natural flavor to enhance the taste of Domino® and C&H® Light, which makes baked goods taste so good.” Find baking tips plus light and delicious recipes using Domino® Light and C&H® Light, at: –and– chsugar. com/light
