  1. Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce (Habenero Hot Sauce) I thought I'd submit my recipe which is a clone of a locally available sauce here in Portland OR called Secret Aardvark Sauce. Sorta Secret Aardvark Sauce 1 – 14.5 oz can of diced tomatoes or roasted tomatoes chopped - include the juice 1 – 14.5 oz can of rice wine vinegar 1-1/2 cups of peeled and grated carrots (packed into the measuring cup) 1 cup of finely diced white onion 1/4 cup of yellow mustard 1/3 cup of sugar 2 teaspoons of Morton’s Kosher Salt 1 teaspoon of black pepper 13 small Habaneros – seeded and membranes removed. (This was 2 oz. of Habs before cutting off the tops and removing the seeds and membranes) 2 teaspoons curry powder 1 cup of water when cooking 5 or 6 cloves of garlic - roasted if you've got it Put it all in the crockpot on high until everything is tender. About 3 hours Whirl in food processor – Don’t puree until smooth – make it lightly/finely chunky. Makes 3 pints - To can process pint jars in a water bath canner for 15 minutes I've thought about making this with peaches or mangoes too, but haven't tried it yet.

  2. Doofus' Mayonnaise, or, The Mayo of The Lazy OK, you've got to have a blender, an immersion stick, a hand mixer or a food processor... I haven't made this since Kiddle killed our blender during the Velveeta Fudge Incident. Without electrical assistance, this would take a VERY long time. I tried it once, it took me almost half an hour to get to the mayonnaise stage. THAT doesn't sound QUICK, does it? Now there are folks who will fill your head with esoteric information about temperatures, exactitude of yolk size, using or not the whites, HOW dire a mistake it is if even a smidgen of whites are present. We say "Silly Folks!" to those people. They're probably all very worried in the kitchen or worried about what you think of them in the kitchen. Well, we're not, we just want delicious food, right? After all, MY reputation is already ruined, so I don't need to impress anyone, I just want to feed them and give them joy. You do too, right? This is simple organic chemistry, and not rocket science or angel food cake, for doofus' sake! WE are here to make delicious, easy and fresh mayonnaise, not to become the next BIG thing in mayonnaise kings. So, don't get nervous, I promise, it will come out fine. I usually use a yolk right from the refrigerator, but I have used a room temperature batch of yolks before, and everything was just fine. I have been told that you can use a whole egg, but we savor egg white omelettes in our house, so we tend to save our whites. OK, here we go! 1 egg yolk 1 T vinegar or lemon juice pinch of salt 3/4 c of oil (we use olive, but you can use almost any oil) you may add any of the following for variations: 1 tsp mustard 1 tsp any herb of your preference cracked peppercorns 1/4 tsp paprika 1 clove of raw garlic (fake out aoili!) 1 shallot PARSLEY will make it GREEN unless you just add the finely chopped parsley after blending. 1 tsp sugar, if you like Miracle Whip already a bit of cayenne, if you like a kick a tiny bit of lemon rind a bit of capers, drained! 1/2 an anchovy DON'T ADD FRUIT, THAT'S JUST GROSS. = First, you blend the egg yolk, vinegar or lemon juice, flavor additions and salt together. For about a half of a minute, dears, not long. Things will start to lighten up, and look all creamy yellow. It will smell good, don't taste it, I mean it- Get your finger out of there! BTW, I usually make this with lemon juice, I prefer it to the vinegar flavoring, myself. You may feel differently. Both methods work. Now, you begin to add the oil, about 1/8 cup at a time, blending for a minute after the first addition. Then, you will blend the mayonnaise for about 30 seconds for each subsequent addition. Well, thinking back to the time I made this in my Cuisinart, maybe a bit less, if you have one of those heavy duty fancy pie machines. Sheesh, I'll wager you wear fancy panties, too. You do, don't you. Well, I'm jealous. When you get to the 3/4 cup mark, be a bit less nonchalant. Watch what you're doing there, Fancy Pants! When the mayonnaise becomes very thick and glossy and beautifully emulsifed, it's had enough oil. You can stop now. You'll know when the oil has incorporated and it is time to add more, you will, really! The mayonnaise will begin to LOOK like mayonnaise, that's how you will know. If you are working in the dark, this kind of cooking will not be successful, I'm sorry. You'll have to do this by some book, in that case. This is home cooking, and we cook with the lights up, and the windowshades down! OK, Dearie, that's all there is to it. Kind of a letdown, eh? You thought I was going to impart some difficult old lady secrets to you, didn't you? You did, I just know it. Nope, after all, I'm all about the joy in the kitchen, not the anguish! Oh, yeah, when it's done, store it in the refrigerator. TROUBLESHOOTING: If it curdles or separates, put a yolk in a clean bowl, beat or blend it 'til it's creamy, then add a couple of spoonfuls of the curdled sauce. When that incorporates and thickens, add some more, bit by bit, until it is all emulsified. If it tastes too oily, add a tiny bit of your acid, blending again. If it tastes too acidic, add a bit more oil, blending again. PS: Try to store this in a clean glass jar, not a plastic container. The flavor gets 'weird' in plastic after a couple of days. PPS: It will take you longer to read this recipe than it will to make the mayonnaise, how about that!

  3. Homemade sugar-free ketchup Easy Sugar-Free Spicy Ketchup The following is an original recipe for a very easy homemade spicy (or not) ketchup that also is a nice gift from your kitchen. Andie's Sugarless Spicy Ketchup Yield, 10 - 1/2 pint jars. 4 quarts tomatoes, peeles, cooked and strained (may be canned tomatoes) 1 Jalapeño (or other hot) pepper, seeded and chopped (optional, omit if you do not want it spicy) 3 cups apple cider vinegar 2 1/2 cups Splenda 1 Tablespoon Celery seed, ground 1 Tablespoon Allspice, ground 2 Tablespoons Cinnamon, ground 1 Tablespoon Star anise, ground 2 Tablespoons kosher salt (or sea salt if you prefer) 1 Tablespoon Black pepper, Ground Combine all ingredients in an 8-quart, non-reactive pot (stainless steel, enamel or anodized aluminum, do not use shiny aluminum). Cook over low heat, stirring frequently until it is reduced by half. Remove from heat and allow to cool, process in food processor or put through a medium fine food mill so that ketchup is smooth with no lumps. Return to cooking vessel and bring to a simmer, stirring constantly. (may also be heated in microwave, stir after every 5 minutes of heating) Using a canning funnel, ladle into hot, sterilized 1/2 pint jars, allow 1/2 inch headroom. Wipe rims and apply flat canning lid and ring but do not tighten. Place in hot water bath and process for 15 minutes. Tighten ring. (May use 5 pint jars if you wish.) This is an original recipe by Andie Note: I do a lot of canning. For hot water processing I use an electric roaster. It has a wire rack that covers the entire bottom and will hold more jars than the typical round canner or stockpot. It is also not as deep so it is easy to place and remove the jars. It maintains the correct temperature and additional boiling water can be added from a teakettle. ( RG1906 )

Do not overbake. unmold onto a wire rack. once cool, spread with desired filling and roll up. Keywords: Dessert, Cake ( RG1811 )
  6. Persian Pickled Grapes I have no idea where I got the original recipe from, but I have fiddled with the amount of sweetness and the additional flavourings over time. These are great with cold meats, cheese platters etc, and are so easy they hardly constitute a "recipe". 1 bottle good wine vinegar (750 ml)- white or red is fine, but I might try pomegranate next time. 1/4 cup Golden Syrup; sugar works OK but does not give the slightly caramelly flavour. Honey might be good. 2 teaspoons salt. a bunch of grapes. a stick of cinnamon if you are so inclined. Boil the vinegar, syrup, and salt together. Cool. Pour over little bunches of the grapes that you have snipped off from the big bunch, and put into sterilised glass jars (with the cinnamon stick if you wish). Seal and keep in a cool dark place for a month before eating (if you can!). Keywords: Easy, Fruit, Condiment ( RG1735 )

  9. Vietnamese Pickled Vegetable Salad If you've ever been to a Vietnamese restaurant, you'll recognize this salad as the garnish on almost every plate of food served. It is also an ingredient in fresh Vietnamese Summer Rolls. Adapted from a recipe in Hot Sour Salty Sweet: A Culinary Journey Through Southeast Asia by Jeffrey Alford and Naomi Duguid. 1 Carrot 1 Daikon radish, a piece about the same size as the carrot Kosher Salt 1 Red Bell Pepper 1/4 c Rice Vinegar Water 1 T Sugar Peel the carrot and daikon. Cut into julienne strips or batons. Or, use a garnish tool to make crinkle cuts. Place the carrot and daikon into a stainer in the sink or over a bowl. Sprinkle liberally with Salt. Allow to sit for 20-30 minutes. Cut red bell pepper into the same cut you did for the carrots & daikon. Set aside. Heat the vinegar with about half a cup of water and the sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Allow to cool naturally or add a couple ice cubes. Rinse the salted vegetables, which should now be slightly wilted. Combine the carrots, daikon and red bell pepper with the dressing and place in an airtight storage container. Add just enough water so that the vegetables are submerged (up to another half cup or so). Allow to marinate at least 1 hour before serving, but better the next day.

  10. Broccoli Salad with Tomato-Onion Mayonnaise Serves 12 as Salad. This is one of my favorite salad recipes, which is saying a lot since I usually don't like broccoli at all. Very unusual and good on a buffet of other salads. Rated intermediate for the length of time required, not the skills. 2 lb broccoli heads, trimmed and cut into florets Mayonnaise: 2 medium onions, chopped 2 cloves garlic, minced 4 T butter 2 T oil 4 tomatoes, peeled, seeded and chopped OR 1 cans tomatoes, petite cut, drained 2 tsp sugar 3 T basil chiffonade 3 T oregano leaves 1 c mayonnaise Garnish (optional) Black olives Cherry tomatoes Cook broccoli in heavily salted boiling water until it is on the verge of becoming tender. Drain and shock in cold water. Drain well. Sauté onions and garlic in butter and oil until onions are transparent. Stir in tomatoes, sugar, basil and oregano. Simmer uncovered over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until all liquid is evaporated. Cool slightly and stir in mayonnaise. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Combine broccoli and tomato mixture. Cover and refrigerate 3-4 hours. Garnish with cherry tomatoes and/or olives and/or more basil chiffonade, if desired. Note: for making the day before, refrigerate broccoli and tomato mixture separately. To cut calories, reduce butter and oil and use only one-half cup of mayonnaise. In that case, leave a bit of liquid in the onion-tomato mixture. Keywords: Salad, Intermediate, Vegetarian ( RG1115 )
  11. Young ginger shoots pickled in sweet vinegar A pickle made around May-June, before rhizomes have fattened up, and served with sushi. Traditional method 5 T rice vinegar 2 T sugar 1/3 tsp coarse natural salt My method 5 T umesu (plum vinegar) 2 T mirin (sweet rice wine) to taste - umesu varies in salt levels In June, the young ginger shoots come onto the market. The immature rhizomes are sold together with about 1 foot of green shoot. These shoots are trimmed to say 6", and the rhizomes divided so that there is one knob of root for each green shoot. Peel rhizomes if necessary, or simply rub papery skin off if young. Hold the stems bunched in your hand, and immerse the ginger roots in boiling water for a few seconds. Have ready the seasoned vinegar mix - zap in the microwave to dissolve sugar, otherwise simply mix in a tall glass, and immerse ginger. Stand the container in the fridge if you intend to keep the pickle for a few days. The pink color will continue to develop for about 12 hours. Eat within a few days. Keywords: Japanese ( RG1091 )

  13. I started going to Assi Plaza Asian Mkt in Lansdale, Pa specifically cause they carried Hana Brand Pickled Ginger. Hana brand did not have Aspartame. I had 8 jars in my fridge for years and finally finished it and needed to buy some more so imagine my shock when I went to buy more recently and it now contains Aspartame! UGH! What to do, what to do! I was able to find Roland Brand on Amazon that was made with SUGAR, and bought the 8 pack. Im kind of annoyed at all these companies because its not mentioned on the jar front and there are people with PKU who can get very ill if they consume aspartame. I had a school mate who died after someone tricked him into eating something with it in it! Can we start a petition or something? Are there any brands besides Rolands that are pink and dont contain Aspartame? TY

  15. End of the Summer Pickles One of my favorite pickles. Good with everything! It's especially good with roasted chicken, a hearty cheese, and chopped fine and made into a tartar sauce (a little mayo, some Worcestershire) with beer-battered fish. Original recipe called for pre-cooking carrots and beans, but I could not really understand why as ten minutes is just fine. Ingredients 2 cup cucumbers, sliced 2 cup sweet peppers, chopped 2 cup cabbage, chopped 2 cup sliced onions 2 cup green tomatoes, chopped 2 cup carrots, peeled & chopped 2 cup green beans, cut into 1 inch pieces 1/4 cup mustard seed 2 Tbs celery seed 4 cup apple cider vinegar 4 cup sugar 2 cups water 1/4 cup turmeric 4 cloves Garlic chopped 1 gallon water 1 cup pickling salt 1. Soak all the vegetables (not the garlic) in the brine over night. 2. Drain the brined vegetables and put in pan, add all other ingredients, except garlic and boil for 10 minutes. Add garlic and mix well (it has more flavor if processed less). 3. Pack into sterilized jars and seal. Servings: 100 Yield: 8-10 pints Cooking Times Preparation Time: 30 minutes Cooking Time: 10 minutes Total Time: 55 minutes Tips You can nearly use any vegetable combinations here. Cauliflower, celery, zucchini, eggplant, peas (with pods too), turnips, radishes, etc.
  16. Hello everybody. This is my first post and the reason why I stumbled upon this wonderful site. Since I tried jamon iberico bellota I have been hooked to it. Since I can't buy it locally where I live, I have to get it online. While searching online, I found this on ebay: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/JAMON-IBERICO-100-EXTREMADURA-BELLOTA-8KG-PATA-NEGRA-/230519034723?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_186&hash=item35ac015363 This is 176 euros for 8kgr jamon including P&P to Greece. This is almost half price from all the other online retailers like http://www.ibergour.co.uk/en/productos/ficha_producto.html?id_prod=jmcex who sell for 350 euros for 7 kilos including P&P. How can there be such a big price difference? Is it because the ebay one is direct from the manufacturer? Is this price possible? Or is there any kind of scam involved? Anyone who lives in Spain close to the manufacturing regions can confirm these prices possible?
  17. Sour Tomatillo Achar Made this one up from a recipe for lemons. It really works for tomatilloes. A unique spice mix, and really sour for a 'different' type of pickle, or achar. It is based on a Marwari recipe - from the arid north-western part of India. Tomatilloes are not used in India (or at least not much) but are quite productive plants in my garden while lemons or other sour fruits are not possible to grow here. No vinegar or lemon juice is used, because tomatilloes are very acidic and don't need any extra. Ingredients 3 lbs tomatilloes husks removed and quartered 1/4 cup salt 1 Tbs black mustard seeds 2 star anise buds 10 dried chilies (I used very hot yellow peppers) 1 tsp fenugreek seeds 2 inch ginger (ground to a paste) 2 TBL dark brown sugar 1/2 cup sugar 1. In a large bowl, put the tomatilloes and sprinkle salt over them. Cover it and leave for a day, mixing occasionally. 2. Next day drain the tomatilloes. 3. Dry roast the star anise (put in first as these take longer, the black mustard, and the chilie pods (add last and barely brown in places). Cool. 4. Grind the roasted spices with the fenugreek and put aside. 5. Add tomatilloes, ginger, sugars, and everything else to a large pan and heat to boiling. 6. Cook till fully hot and boiling. 7. Fill half-pint jars and seal.
  18. Rhubarb Jam 5kg Rhubarb 6kg Preserving sugar (high in pectin) 75g Fresh ginger, coarsely chopped 10 Lemons 780g Water * Cut the Rhubarb and place in to a bowl big enough to include the sugar. * Cover with the sugar and allow to stand overnight. * Place into a suitable sized thick bottomed pan & add the water. * Squeeze the lemons and add the juice to the pan. * Reserve the pips & place into a muslin bag along with the chopped up ginger. * Bring to the boil quickly and skim, continue to boil until 110°C (or Jam). * Place in sterilised jars and steam for 25 minutes & then chill.
  19. For years I have been proselytizing on the benefits of brining: chicken, pork, turkey, bread pudding (just kidding), etc. It seems that all I have read in magazines and books calls it brining when they include a sweetener. However,recently I read that it is actually a pickle when the sweetner is added to the brine. Makes sense to me, but I think it is a matter of perception. REad in The Sausage Book by Bruce Aidells about pickled pork from Louisiana and thought, "yuck." However, when I looked at the recipe I discovered that it is a brine w/ sugar... go figure. Would the general populace cook/eat/serve pickled turkey for Thanksgiving? Roasted pickled chicken sounds like a gherkin chicken, lol. Please share your thoughts.
  20. Thing has been in fridge for over an hour now and is still completely liquid. Has anyone made this recipe before? I added 5 sheets of gelatine as per the instructions. Perhaps the size of the gelatine sheets she mentioned is a bit bigger and I should've added more? Dinner party tonight so either need to save this (preferably, was a very nice bottle of chardonnay!) or need to run out and buy ice cream;)
  21. So, I've got two - and photographic evidence. Obviously, photos are not necessary; what are the strangest/funniest/weirdest hot sauce names you've ever seen? BTW, both were seen recently at Kalustyan's.
  22. Industrial tartar sauce. (Hate the homemade stuff.) The more, the better. You?
  23. I used to buy the most delicious apricot jam from Agrimontana through the same distributor who I buy my chocolate from (Sparrow in Boston). They stopped carrying Agrimontana and now I want to make my Apricot Linzer again for the holidays - and I'd like to use this brand because it was so good. I don't want to buy this retail; I could never sell the tart if I were to buy a small jar through Salumeria Italiana..... Anyone buying Agrimontana? From who? Or where...?
  24. This started when we were at dinner last week at the Davis St. Tavern in Portland, Oregon. We had a great Steak Frites served with what the menu called "green chile aioli." It had a fabulous green chile flavor and I want to try to replicate it at home. When I started pondering recipes I got confused. I believe that the standard definitions would sort out along the lines that an aioli doesn't have egg in it, mayonnaise does, and a hollandaise is cooked. But I'm not sure that's how restaurants use the terms these days - at least with respect to aioli, which seems to be a popular term. What do you think is the "proper" definition and what do you think is common in restaurant parlance? On a cooking note: yesterday I made mayonnaise and added roasted Hatch green chiles to the food processor at the end. There are noticeable, though not objectionable, green chile pieces in the mayonnaise. What we had at the restaurant didn't have these. I'm pondering infusing the oil with green chiles and then making a sauce. Any other ideas?
  25. Does anyone have a tried and true recipe for peach freezer jam? I've made 2 batches and them don't seem to set very thickly.
