    Pastry Gems ?

    Thanks for your help and tips Pam . I am using a pastry flour I think I will mix the margarine and gems 50/50 for the layering and see how it goes. Daz
  2. Hi I am new to pastry making I made my first puff pastry on the weekend and was happy with the result but theres plenty of room for improvement. I used butter in my first pastry and now im trying a bakers margarine and bakers gems I know the margarine and gems are used in the same pastry mix but i cant find much info on pastry gems E.G when you add the gems are they used for laying or mixed with the margarine etc any ideas ? heres a pic of the gems Thanks Daz

  10. Cheers Pat mmmm that tuna dish looks great . The Sichuan i have here does look the same as your pic. So they must have improved over here i found two seeds in the pack i wonder how hard it is to grow. It looks like quite a big tree. Fresh Sichuan pepper corns Thanks for the great spice link too. Dale
  11. Yea i must say there a crazy little spice i think i might up the amount i put in dishes
  12. Thanks for ya help people well i put one ground Sichuan pepper in my mouth and im getting all those effects so i guess they might not be to bad. I look forward to your article Pat.. after about 15mins the fizzyness is dropping in the mouth a little Dale
  13. Yes i do roast them maybe i should be adding more to the dishes . So in a jar would you say they smell stronger than black pepper or same, less ,or more ?
  14. I think im missing something from the sichuan pepper corns over here... Most recipes i have been doing are only asking for 1tsp of crushed sichuan. I dont seem to get much flavor from it im starting to think its old and not fresh enough. Ive heard of sichuan numming the mouth.. So how much smell does it have when you shiff it and how strong is it in your dishes you cook? Thanks Dale
  15. Wow im keen to make one of those.... yea some nice long welding gloves would be good to get the naan in there. Nice work wheres the food pics Dale
