  1. When looking over some dried cherries and blueberries yesterday, I wondered if they could be reconstituted and made into preserves or jams. I've made a few things like this, and can't, off the top of my head, think of any reason it wouldn't work. But "few" is a key word. I'm interested in hearing the thoughts of more experienced preserve, jam, and jelly makers.
  2. Somewhere I read about an expansive jam from Britian, can't remember where I read about it (Here? Gastronomica? The Saturday Evening Post?) but a woman described it as teeny tiny whole strawberries and oh-so-delicious. Cannot google myself into it . . . The preserving thread, which captivated me yesterday, made me remember it. Can you help me?
  3. I am about to be overrun with tromboncino zucchini. I started growing them on a six foot bean tower, but the recent heat wave caused them to explode out the top like a fountain and they are now threatenting to eat my house. Only after I planted them did I read that the vines can get to 25 feet. Oh. DE-AH. They're really a lovely veg, nice long seedless neck, not watery, not bitter. I think they'd make great pickles. Can I substitute them in any pickle recipe, or is there something special I need to do so as not to kill all my friends with botulism? I'm thinking of something sweet and hot, anyone have advice or good recipes? Here's my little beauty... (a picture should follow...if not, I still haven't figured out how to post a photo).
  4. I grabbed a bite of lunch today at Denningers, a local european grocery with cafeteria. The potato pancake I chose was a little disappointing all by itself so I went in search of something to liven it up. There were a couple of bottles of regular ketchup, some mustard - a low and behold - a bottle of curry ketchup. Now I recall reading about curry ketchup in the last couple of days, I think it may have been while reviewing Klary's 1st blog, and I decided I had to give it a try. I am smitten. It was very, very tasty. I of course came home with a bottle. Now, I can think of all the usual things to try ketchup with, fries, grilled cheese sandwiches, mac and cheese, but I would love to know what folks on eG consider traditional with curry ketchup or non traditional but delicious. I welcome your ideas.
  5. Hi! Before we launched our project, I followed Melissa's remodel thread (congrats Melissa) and links to other kitchen remodel threads and I am continually awed by the inspiration and recommendations offered by the eGullet community during those projects. I want to get a piece of that action during our remodel. Demolition began on June 20, with an estimated 6-month project duration. The impetus for our remodel was the addition of a master bedroom and bath to transform our tiny 2 BR 1 BA into a modest 3BR 2BA. In addition, we are transforming and expanding the back of the house to create a "great" room that will combine a new kitchen, dining and family room. I will post plans and initial pictures in a subsequent post to give everyone a sense of the scope of our project. But first... Yesterday, we met (again) with our kitchen designers and appliance people to hammer out our appliance wants, needs, and desires. Here is where we netted out: Range – Wolf 48” R486C (6 burner, grill), w/ Island trim (is trim necessary?) Hood – Independent 27” x 54” Incline INHL54SS (w/ heat lamps) Blower – Independent CFMR1400 (external) Dishwasher – Miele Platinum edition G2150SCSS Microwave – GE Monogram 1.0 CF Stainless ZEM200SF Refrigerator – GE Monogram 42” built-in Stainless w/dispenser – ZISS420DRSS Beverage Center – GE Monogram 24” Stainless ZDBC240NBS (we're not willing to pay $600 more for privacy glass feature!) Sink – Franke 30”x18”x9” Stainless under mount Anyway... we would love to get some reaction to our selections before they hit the SOLD key on the cash register! Thanks! -Lyle PS: I know the Wolf is wimpy at 16,000 BTU per burner, but are there other reasons I should reconsider?
  6. K8's Hot Fudge Cake aka Cinqo de Mayo I had recipes to follow but I just wound up making this one up. I didn't seem to have enough ingredients to make this or that exact cake so I just improvised. I was so happy when it didn't fall!!It was awesome. Don't let the cayenne fool you--it's not shocking or hot --it leaves a pleasing glow in your throat--very very nice. Going for a kind of a Cinqo De Mayo Ole~ type a thing This is a double batch. And it's exactly what I used. K8's Hot Fudge Cake 3 ounces of unsweetened Baker's chocolate Hershey's Extra Dark 60% cacao 3.52 ounce bar (got it at Walgreen's) 2 ounces of German Chocolate ^^^melt & set aside^^^ 4 cups sugar 3 cups sifted all purpose flour--less one heaping spoonful (sugar spoon size) 1 1/2 teaspoon baking soda 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder 1 teaspoon salt 2 - 3 generous teaspoons saigon cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder 1 heaping spoonful (sugar spoon size) Valrhona cocoa powder ^^^ whisk all together in a mixing bowl & set aside ^^^ 2 cups strong hot coffee 1 cup sour cream (room temp-ish) 1 cup oil 1 tablespoon vanilla ^^^Blend coffee, sr crm, vanilla & oil together with a whisk ^^^ Then add to powder mixture & combine well. 4 eggs, room temp ^^^add eggs one at a time to mixture mixing well before adding the next egg ^^^ then add chocolate & mix well. Makes nice half sheet or 4 eight inch layers. Bake 350 for like 40 ish minutes until toothpick comes out clean. I filled the cake with a cream cheese and swiss meringue buttercream combo. Then iced it with regular buttercream in order to cover with fondant. It's not too late to live happily ever after. You can use any combination of chocolate. But this particular blend is really good. I've made it with Baker's unsweetened too. But try real hard to find a good Saigon cinnamon. They well it in the big grocery stores now. Vietnamese or Saigon cinnamon. I recommend at least a cream cheese filling if not fully iced with a cream cheese icing. The cheese balances the 'hot fudge' to perfection. I would stick with a vanilla icing though. I would not want to blur the rich chocolate flavor of the cake. You will love this cake. Keywords: Dessert, Snack, Easy, American, Chocolate, Mexican, Cake ( RG1766 )
  7. We tried them, can't stop thinking about how good they were, and want to make them at home. Anyone have a good recipe? Thanks, -Mike
  8. I really miss Frank's Red Hot Sauce. I use it to make the hotwings I grew up with. Other hot sauces I can find easily in NY are not doing the job. Anyone know where I can buy it in Manhattan? Thanks folks, Grace

    hey everybody! i'm new here and i'm in love with pickles. i go through a jar a day and i was wondering if you guys know a simple recipe for pickling cucumbers? i'd like one without the need of dill, lime and peppers. thanks you guys

  11. I make this yummy honey jelly and have been for years. Mainly for personal friends but I'm investigating taking to another level. I've got what I think are great flavors -- cranberry, raspberry, lemon, mango, and apricot. This jelly gets all of its sweetness from the honey and whatever flavor I use -- no added sugar. Anyway...now to my brain freeze: I want to make new batch as guest favors for my upcoming wedding and I'd like it to be something truly unique. Maybe its just that I've got brain overload with all the other wedding details but, for the life of me, I can't think any more. I mean there's the obvious -- strawberry, peach, etc. -- but I'd like to do some type of duo flavor combination instead. If it helps you do the thinking for me the wedding will be outside, in August, in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Any suggestions are welcome and appreciated. Karen
  12. I plan to make an assortment of strawberry jam. In particular, I want to combine apples and strawberry so I won't have to use store bought pectin. I also want to reduce the sugar by about a third. However, I see that there are different kinds of preserve methods. I know you're suppose to sterilize the jars and lids. My mom usually pours her jam into sterilized jars but does not heat the lids to seal it. She stores it in the fridge and freezer. Some people boil the jars and lids to seal it and store it in their pantry. I don't have home canning pots, tongs, etc. Is it necessary to go through the whole boiling method if I don't use store bought pectin and use less sugar? I want to store it in the fridge or freezer and want to avoid poisoning myself. I don't want to use wax either. I just want the simplest method, use the least sugar and be able to store it either in a freezer or a pantry. People tell me home perserving is simple but I'm confused with the different information I see out there. Thanks for your help.
  13. 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 )
  14. Summertime fairly begs for pickled fruits and vegetables ... article from the Washington Post Don't miss the great recipes in this article! Because this article makes the new version of pickling appear so simple and almost effortless, I, who have yet to pickle anything, think it is high time to try this ... but what to pickle? Upon which foods might you want to try this technique?
  15. Stayed at a major chain hotel this week and on the breakfast table were 4 jars of preserves-marmalade, grape, boysenberry and strawberry. These are the mini jars for one time use. I wanted to take them home (unopened) for two reasons-my little girls would have gotten a kick out of them either for eating or playing with their play kitchen and tea sets. The other reason is a jar of jelly simply sits in our refrigerator until it grows green and I throw it out. The small one time use jars are perfect for our occassional need. I am not one who pilfers sweet n low packets or other things that restaurants frequently find missing. I could have opened them all and 'sampled' them on my toast thus the hotel would have thrown them out anyway. I am sure that if I asked the server if I could take them she would have said yes. But I left the table empty handed. Would it have been ok to take (or ask to) the jars home?
  16. Parents across for a couple of days next week, and taking us out for dinner Wednesday. They're staying in St James and had booked a table at Quaglino's, as Dad had walked past a couple of times and thought it looked small and intimate (!) and it's got two red forks in his Michelin, which apparently means that it's 'particularly welcoming'. I swiftly disabused him of its diminutive size and intimacy, to which he suggested that I book something instead. First thought was L'Oranger, but haven't been for years and concerned that it might get a bit pricey. Second thought was Le Caprice but also haven't been for years and concerned that it's not particularly welcoming (for non-regulars). Having been lurking for a long time, I know what an opinionated bunch you all are (although less so without Simon M's input), so can anyone either comment on the two choices noted, ideally based on recent experience, or suggest something else. Would really like to keep it to £300-400 for dinner, with a modest attack at the wine list. ta

  18. A European food import company near my house had an outlet sale this weekend and I picked up some interesting things I hadn't tried before. Among the interesting jars was Pickled Walnuts in Malt Vinegar. I had heard of pickled green walnuts before, but hadn't seen them until now. I popped open the jar as soon as I got home and tried some. Hmm... tastes like malt vinegar with some texture. I couldn't really taste the walnuttiness. I tried soaking a few in water for a few minutes, but really I don't think I'm experiencing pickled walnuts properly. So what are pickled walnuts supposed to taste like? Are they all looks (round and black) or did I get a sub par brand my first time out?
  19. Food Jammers is a new show airing in Canada on Food Network. From the show description: I am going to hold back my opinion and see what other people have to say. Has anyone seen this show?

  22. I love dill pickles and never thought there could be such a thing as too many. But I now have a HUGE container of them in my fridge. Any creative relishes, etc. out there? Thanks -- Laurie

    From the Only a Chinese would eat it thread, I learned that the Chinese aren't the only ones that eat jellyfish. The Chinese usually prepare it by chopping up the jellyfish head into small strips and serving cold, sometimes mixed with radish(?) which also has a crispy texture. How do other cultures prepare it?
  24. Has anyone seen this product in Portland? I've checked Pastaworks, Zupan's and New Seasons and none of them stock it. I could order it online, but the shipping costs as much as the jar itself. Much thanks for any ideas.
  25. I am looking for a recipe. I got from someone a jar of Jalepenos pickeled in a sweet soy sauce brine. It was amazing. Crunchy, sweet, salty and hot. I couldn't stop eating them. Now they are all gone and I don't have a recipe for it. I don't know the Korean name for it but the this soy sauce based sauce is also used to pickle other vegetables (e.g., garlic). I would really appreciate the recipe. Thanks in advance... Soup
