  1. I'm planning on trying some champagne jelly, to use on a future assembled desert. I'm thinking on mixing agar-agar with sugar and champagne, simply that. Will that work? On the other hand I wish to achieve a gold sparkling/glittering effect. Does ayone know any edible product/aditive that will create that sort of effect? Something like Christmas glitter...
  2. I like keeping some freshly homemade pickled vegetables in my fridge, but my repetoire is limited. I'm not into making a whole year's supply in the end of summer heat, but prefer making small batches of this or that as I go. In common parlance, pickle tends to mean pickled cucumbers, dills, gherkins. But many other vegetables and even some fruits can be pickled. Lately I've made Judy Rodgers' pickled red onions and love them for their wonderful aromatic flavor and texture. My old standbys are a quick sweet/sour cucumber pickle (with only a 2 day life) and carrot/daikon pickle. Sometimes I make pickled watermelon rind. So what are some of your favorites to make for your fridge - or has freshly made salsa completely eclipsed pickled vegetables?
  3. So my sis brought me some samples from l'artisan du chocolate, the liquid center sea salt caramel and a box of their pralines.I had a taste of some and I found them very balanced ,clean, maybe little bit on the sweet side ,but I really liked them ,then I tried the red wine jelly one and I thought i wouldnt like it, but I was wrong .It was very good,very balance again , no flavor to overpower the other ,a nice balanced chocolate.Now I never made jellyies , so I was courious to know how to make those nice very armonious jellies to combine with ganahces in pralines.Any recipie or suggestions ? Thank you so much .
  4. The nomination voting is open; register, sign in, and vote here. Also as you can see, things should be a little more exciting now that they have seperated some of the states into a new category under "The Great Lakes". Now that Chicago is out of the way...maybe Kansas City will have an opportunity For some reason I can't find the deadline for the nominations
  5. Duck Biscuits with Cilantro Jelly Serves 6 as Dessert. This is dessert 4 of the 7 desserts I made for the Supreme eGullet Pastry and Baking Challenge: Round 4 Biscuit 100 g Duck Fat 150 g Pastry Flour 50 fl oz Sugar 1/2 tsp Star Anise Jelly 100 g Sugar 70 g Water 4 T Rice Wine Vinegar 1/4 pt Pectin 1 pkg Cilantro To make the biscuits, first put the duck fat in the freezer. Mix the flour, sugar and star anise together and place in the freezer for an hour. Use a grater to grate in the duck fat and mix gently to coat. Add in a few tablespoons of cold water and mix until the dough comes together. Wrap it up in some plastic wrap and let it chill for an hour so the dough can absorb the moisture. Roll out the dough and bake at 350F until the edges are golden. Cut the biscuits while they are still hot and let them cool to room temperature. To make the jelly, combine the sugar, water & pectin in a measuring cup and let it cook in the microwave until boiling. Add in the rice wine vinegar, cook for a while longer and then test to see if it has jelled. If it has, bring it back to the boil and then add in about 1/2 a bunch of cilantro immediately after you've taken it off the heat. Let it cool to room temperature and then chill in the fridge overnight. To serve, simply top each biscuit with a dab of cilantro jelly.

  6. Hello All- What purpose did pickles serve in a meal? I can remember my grand mother never considering her table properly set when guests were coming unless there were some pickles on the table. What purpose did pickles play and when were they most important? Were offering pickled vegetables on the table a southern thing that made its way north? I can understand from a food preservation standpoint the purpose of pickling, but did pickles serve to counterpoint the blandness of other food? Were pickles precursors to hot sauces? Did pickles help dress up left overs or mask food which was nearing the end of its freshness? I'd appreciate any info you can offer. The table routines of the early 1900's seem like such a mystery to me.
  7. At a restaurant I worked at a couple decades ago, we served lamb chops with japaleno jelly. And I had a whole bunch of jalapenos from the garden, Biker Billy's, really big and super hot. I decide to remember the recipe and and make some. Well, it looks good and tastes good but its kinda syrup-y. Hopefully someone can help rescue this jelly. Here's what I've done. 4 cups apple juice 4 cups sugar Diced green and red jalapeno Diced ancho Diced pasilla Juice of 1 lemon 5 or 6 fresh mint leaves 1 and then 2 packets of pectin (this was old, within a week of exp date) Brougt all to a boil, added pectin. When it didn't set, heated all again and added the second pouch. Are there any jelly makers out there that, unlike me, actually know what their doing who can rescue my jelly? Thanks, Mike
  8. Chef Andrés, I'm pleased to report that we have finally received Jamon Iberico in Canada. It strikes me that there is a significant difference between traditional Spanish hams - not purely in the sense of one being superior to the next, but in terms of style. Can you share with us your thoughts on the differences in the various types, and how they can best be used in different applications?
  9. Chef Andrés, I recently bought some of the excellent chorizo ibérico de bellota from La Tienda and noticed that your name is on the package. Can you share with us the story of your involvement bringing the legendary ibérico pork products into the US?
  10. Chef Andres, Welcome. Could you tell us when will be able to taste Jamón Ibérico and what steps where taken to import it into the United States. And what makes this different than Jamon Serano. I am really looking forward to experiencing your Minibar, I hope to visit it soon. cyberdillo
  11. I am having a 'jam weekend' as i call it. I planned to do three jams from my newest cookbook: Mes confitures, Chritine Ferber. I started with the Chesnut and vanilla jam. I first thought it was supposed to be like a spread but after having read the recipe twice, i notice Christine doesn't call for a food mill. She just say 'crush any big bits with a wooden spoon'. I find it quite original - chunky creme de marron. I know i could use a mill if desired, but really want to make sure the jam is supposed to be 'chunky' and not smooth (to tell the truth i haven't a food mill in my tiny student kitchen and like the fact that this jam goes off the path!). I have the french version of the book and wondered if it was different in the english version. And by the way, did any of you tried this recipe? I am also planning to make the potimarron and vanilla jam and the red tomato and vanilla jam. Very vanilla! Will tell you about the results tomorrow when finished. xoxo fanny

    Ketchup

    My vote goes in for All Gold Ketchup. It is made in South Africa, has no preservatives or colorants and uses cane suger instead of that awful high fructose corn syrup. Has a bit of a white pepper tang to it that I really like.
  13. OK, so I made a cocktail this eveing (a White Lady for those keeping score at home), and I shook it perhaps too vigorously, and I can't get the bastard open now. I have whacked it hard several times, and no joy. Any tips or tricks to free the Lady from her glass and steel prison?
  14. Here is a link to a recipe for Mustard Pickles, which is the same recipe that my family from Maine makes *except* our recipe uses white sugar rather than brown, and all the pickling ingredients (which of course is everything but the cucumbers) are heated together till everything blends well, then cooled before pouring over the cukes. (The vinegar to be used is either cider or white - I prefer cider.) There is nothing like a Maine Mustard Pickle that I know of. A taste to remember.
  15. So I made "Jamaican Beef Patties" from scratch. ingredients pastry 400 G flour (~1lbs) 1/2 CUP water 1/2 CUP melted butter 1/2 CUP melted shortening 1 TS salt 1 TBSP baking powder 1 TBSP curry powder medium hot 1 TBSP tumeric ingredients filling 400 G ground beef (~1lbs) 3 X minced red onion 3 TBSP spice mix (see below for composition) 4 X minced garlic clove 1 X beer 1 TS salt 1 TS pepper 1 TS nutmeg 1 TBSP pimento (aka all spice) 1 TBSP brown sugar 1 TBSP tomato paste ingredients sidedish 400 G grean beans 3-4 TBSP olive oil 1 TS salt 1 TS pepper spice mix 2 parts onion powder 2 parts garlic powder 2 parts dried oregano leaves 2 parts dried sweet basil 1 parts dried thyme leaves 1 parts black pepper 1 parts white pepper 1 parts cayenne pepper 1 parts ground celery seed 5 parts sweet paprika I love this spice mix. It's a very good base and easily tweakable. The parts can be everything from a teaspoon to a ton. I like to buy the spices in 100 gram packages, mix them and then keep the mix in an airproof jar. Always handy for dry rubs, marinates, etc. first the dough, mix the dry pastery ingredients, then add the melted butter and shortening stir well until all the fat is crumbled ... into crumbles add some water and start to knead it until you got a nice slightly sticky ball of firm dough wrap it in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for 60min time to fix the filling, mince the red onions and the garlic minced onions and beef first browning the meat can take a few minutes when the meat is done, deglaze the pan with some beer then add the rest of the filling ingredients, season to taste with salt and pepper let simmer, almost all of the liquid should vaporise the filling is done, when just slightly moist while the filling is cooling off a little, it's time to roll out the dough not too thick, 2-3 mm at most take a small bowl and punch as many holes as possible into it (I bake very little, so apparently I suck at this) remove the left-over dough and spoon the filling into the patties, close and fork-seal 'em place the patties on a non-sticking-papered baking tray (I bake very little, so I was paranoid about trusting the non-sticking-paper) pre-heated oven, then bake the patties for 20-30min at 180C (~350F) in the meantime simmer the green beans in lightly salted water they are done, when there is still a little crunch, discard water, season with olive oil and S&P jamaican beef patties with green beans, enjoyjoy Comments and feedback are most welcome,
  16. So has anyone been fooling around with Jamaica Ginger? They didn't happen to sell any where I am, so I made some of my own by infusing a large amount of dried ginger in a small amount of 100 proof alcohol. It's an interesting ingredient. It's spicy like Tabasco, but lends itself to more concoctions because it doesn't taste like salt and vinegar.

  19. So, this weekend's project was two-fold: First, make homemade (non-carbonated) ginger beer: Audrey Saunder's recipe Then, make a Jamaican Firely, Pegu Club's version of a Dark & Stormy: Jamaican Firefly recipe I'm including these two together, as I couldn't find them together before. Also, because this was truly an experiment that validated that cocktail obsession that my wife occasionally rolls her eyes at. What an incredible cocktail! I'm not sure I'll ever be able to drink a "regular" Dark & Stormy again. An aside: now that I have this great ginger beer, any other suggestions for it? Regards, Marty P.S. Needless to say, kudos to Audrey Saunders and her incredible staff for another life-changing cocktail...
  20. Yah, yah, I'm sick, it's supposedly end stage cancer, I'm going through total skin electron beam radiation, blahdiblah blah... Here's the important thing. I NEED a decent pickle. I do not want to meet the end (or face the fight against an end) without having savored, at least once more, a delicious-perfectly pickled-puckery-garlicky-yet-not-overpoweringly-so cucumber, even if it isn't of my own manufacture. I have NO energy. I AM fussy about my pickles. The plebian yet enjoyable BaTampte isn't going to cut is this time. Where can I send a well meaning friend in the Freehold area to acquire this lovely for me? I prefer a more than slightly green pickle, a well pickled, but still light and crisp pickle, where the flesh hasn't greened as yet. Garlic is a must. Vinegar is a no no. Brine is the all important base. Can any of you NJ experts assist me? My friend is ready for action at any time.
  21. I followed the recipie for making jam on from Alton Brown available here. In the process I measured out 24 fl. oz. of blackberries instead of 24 oz by wieght and my jam did not set. So now I've got a bunch of runny preserves, is there anyway to correct this and boil it down some more or something to get it to set? It's still useable but id rather it be spreadable and not so liquidous.
  22. I've made freezer blackberry jam with Contreau and, WOW, it is good. I've made blueberry freezer jam with ice wine and it was only okay. It was suggested that I make blueberry jam with Limencello. I was considering Cassis. Which Cassis would you recommend? Are there any other liqueur suggestions for blueberry (White Cacoa possibly?) I also have strawberries, cherries, raspberries and peaches in the freezer. I want to make them into preserves with liqueurs as well. Any suggestions? I plan to make them all into freezer jams to give away for Christmas. My other question is, what do I do with the remaining liqueur since I don't drink? I like to make desserts with liqueur. Thanks!

I want to give half of what I make to the plum provider tomorrow morning.. I am thinking Plum and Port or just a super enriched plum.. I would love suggestions..
  24. I reached into my fridge today, knowing that there was one, and only one, of the lovely kosher dills left in there that I was craving, and low and behold there was a mother floating in my pickle jar! It looks healthy, a little dark in the center, and very intriguing. I can't believe it grew in the fridge, and am a little suspicious. OK, who knows if this is good to use? I have read up on vinegar making, but never actually done it myself. The kosher dills are very garlicy, will that corrupt the mother? Not that I object to a little garlic in my vinegar. Also, can I eat that last pickle? I have been saving it a couple of weeks. I'm sort of excited. It feels like foraging to me, almost, and maybe fate is telling me that now is the time to start my vinegar making experiment. Some treasures just pop up in the most amazing places. I have a source for some very nice vinegar jars. Anne
  25. Easy Dill Pickles Very easy and safe to make. These are the best dill pickles I've tasted. 20-25 4" cucumbers Soak them covered in cold water overnight. Check out your jars. You need a lid with a perfect seal and lining with pickles --- not a flaw. You also need tongs. Clean the jars and put them and the lids into a deep pot of boiling water. For each jar you will need: 1/8 teaspoon of alum 1 clove garlic 2 heads fresh dill 1 hot red pepper 1 grape leaf clean In a big pot put 1 cup sale (the big kosher kind) 3 quarts water 1 quart cider vinegar and bring to a boil Put a dish towel on the counter. With the tongs, take the jars out one by one and cram cucumbers in, then add the alum, garlic, dill, pepper and fill the jar right up with the hot brine. Put the grape leaf on top, take the lid out of the pot and put it on the jar, then using a potholder, screw it down well. That's it. Repeat. Makes 6-8 quarts of pickles. You are suppose to keep these in the pantry for winter but we start eating them after a couple days. Keywords: Hors d'oeuvre, Easy, Condiment ( RG1782 )
