Very odd.  I was sure that I posted this earlier today.  I even remember remarking to @blue_dolphin that Pt. Reyes is one of our favorite bleu cheeses and how lovely her figs were.  Oh, well.  Senior moments coming fast lately.  

 

This morning:

I love red currant scones.
I can't always find fresh red or black currants. Found some red at the Farmer's Market last week and bought some to freeze.

 

My parents grew both, as my dad was fond of them. I just used the last of theirs from my freezer (three years old, but well wrapped and still good) over the past winter.

I don't usually post on this thread because we don't normally eat breakfast, but I have been wanting to make these for a while so we made some today.  Pikelets, with sausages.   The maple syrup is  courtesy of our neighbour.  Her nephew tapped the maple trees at her cottage and boiled down the sap over a wood fire, the old fashioned way.  It is superb.

Silken tofu with brown sugar and ginger syrup.

 

 

Thanks for the reminder. My local big Asian market (99 Ranch) sells beautiful fresh silken with the ginger syrup in a side container. Light & lovely.

@spaghetttti - So nice to see you!  That French bread looks perfect.  Will you share how it's done?

 

@ElsieD – I love pikelets.  I saw them for the first time in February (I think) when @Captain made them.  They are now one of our favorites.  Yours are much nicer than mine – mine come out a bit too dark. 

 

Breakfast yesterday.  I was feeling a little off (fine today) and this is one of my lifelong I-don’t-feel-good breakfasts:

Really good tomatoes on toasted white bread (the only kind of sandwich bread that will be in the house during tomato season) and Duke’s.

Mine are likely different from his.  In looking at various recipes, a lot of which were Australian, I saw that most use baking powder.  Mine were made using yeast.  You mix flour, active dry yeast, a teeny bit of sugar, salt and warmed milk together.  Let sit for a couple of hours until nice and bubbly then fry on medium heat.  They cook at a lower heat than say, pancakes, so they take a bit longer.  But, they are a snap to make.  Apparently you can heat leftovers in a toaster but we didn't have any left.

Moe had a bowl of local blueberries and yogurt early and later requested

a piece of toast. I offered to make eggs, but he just wanted toast.

@chefmd – nice looking breakfast.  I love the crust you got on your potatoes!  As far as the corned beef goes – did you buy already corned beef in the packet and sous vide it as is, or did you “corn” it yourself?

 

@Ann_T – I, too, would want only toast if I had access to bread like that!

 

This morning:

The last of the figs.  I’ll have to see if anyone has any tomorrow.

@ElsieD and @shain - between the two of you, I believe I’ve been convinced to make pancakes sometime this week!

 

Honestly, I feel like giving up on soft boiled eggs.  I’ve tried pretty much every method and thought I’d found the answer with the IP.  I’ve had multiple successes making them at Low Pressure for 4 minutes, ice water soak for 30 seconds, cold water rinse for 5 seconds, then a 3-minute ice water soak.  As I said when I wrote up the recipe, I don’t know if this whole dance is necessary, but since it was working so well, I did it.  This time was a disaster:

IMG_3277.thumb.jpg.0e075e8375f24a0dafb8570b7b8e0866.jpg

So MUCH snot. Ick🤢. They were also impossible to peel. I ended up cracking them open into a pan, scraping them out with a spoon and cooking them in some butter:

IMG_3278.jpg.ad166773a5150bc70ff8ceba4ff5891b.jpg

Very, very disappointing.  I'll try this again at 5 minutes, I guess.  Served with sausage links, hash brown patties, and milky bread toasted.

@Shelby  

 

has ( had ? ) a reproducible IP low pressure Rx for soft boiled eggs

 

from the refrigerator ,

 

Ive used it in the past .   but Ive lost my Red engineered lined notebook

 

so cant recall the times.    I used to do 1 - 1.5 doz a time , then chill in cold tap water 

 

until @ tab water temp  then re-refrigerate.   Id return w hot tap water  while making coffee  

 

etc and etc , and always came out fine.    the re-therm  was my idea of course.

 

I even re-thermed in hot tap water in the micro for 30 seconds , the eggs being completely submerged.

 

on the next really slow day , ill have to re-read  the entire IP and CSO threads

 

and take some notes from my own work.

 

there are a lot of really slow days , these days.

 

I expect more to come until Vaccination day shows up on the calendar

 

too bad Bezos and Musk  are so keen on their " equipment '

 

and want to go to the Moon.

 

a subscribe-and-save  vaccination program would do a lot more good for

 

the world that that nonsense

Thank you.  Weird thing - I checked with @Shelby and it turns out that her recipe (the one that you referenced) and mine are the same recipe.  Sigh.

      ALMOND CUSCUS WITH CRANBERRIES AND PINEAPPLE
       
      I hate getting up in the morning. My household knows that before 8 o'clock I'm unbearable, and because almost every day I wake up much earlier, I tend to be unbearable more frequently than I want. Every extra five minutes of sleep is priceless, so I appreciate a good breakfast that is not too complicated and is quick to prepare.

      Recently, I have been preparing breakfast with groats and flakes. This time I chose cuscus. This product is a cross between pasta and groats, and it doesn't need long to prepare. It is enough to add hot water or milk and leave for a few minutes. I added some fresh pineapple, cranberries and banana. I spiced it up with some hot chili pepper .

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      125g of cuscus
      400ml of almond milk
      1 tablespoon of honey
      1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
      2 slices of fresh pineapple
      1 teaspoon of minced chili pepper
      150g of fresh cranberries
      2 tablespoons of brown sugar
      1 banana
      4 tablespoons of flaked almonds

      Wash the cranberries and put them into a pot. Add two tablespoons of water and the brown sugar. Boil, stirring gently until the cranberries burst and the sauce has thickened. Boil the almond milk with the vanilla essence. Pour the milk onto the cuscus and leave for 5-7 minutes. Slice the banana and roast the almond flakes. Peel the pineapple and dice it. Mix the pineapple, chili pepper and honey. Add the pineapple to the cuscus and mix it in. Put the mixture into two bowls. Put the cranberries and banana on the top and sprinkle with the almond flakes.

      Enjoy your meal!

      LUNCH FROM THE JAR, I.E. LAYERED SALAD IN THE OFFICE
       
      Most of us take lunch boxes to the office. Some lucky people can warm their food up at work The rest have to eat sandwiches. Sandwiches are great, but even if we absolutely love them we could get fed up with them in the end. Regardless of where we work we can save the situation with salads. Every day we can prepare a different one and we have an entirely new lunch. If we also take an attractive dish, we have something that is not only tasty but also glamorous.

      I would like to share with you the recipe for a salad which looks equally as beautiful as it is yummy. The chickpeas and groats make it a satisfying and balanced meal, after which we won't be hungry. I think that if you prepare your lunch in the morning and plan to eat it at lunchtime, we should keep the salad and the dip separately. Otherwise, after a few hours in the jar, we have an unappetising dish with squishy lettuce, which isn't what we want, is it?

      Ingredients (for 2 people)
      1 beetroot
      200g of tinned chickpeas
      100g of bulgur
      1 carrot
      1 fresh green pepper
      4 lettuce leaves
      200g of natural yoghurt
      handful of minced chives
      1 small chili pepper
      salt and pepper

      Clean the beetroot and bake or boil it. Grate the beetroot and carrot. Cut the pepper into thin strips. Boil the bulgur in salty water. Arrange in layers in a jar the beetroot, chickpeas, pepper, bulgur, carrot and lettuce. Dice the chili pepper. Mix the natural yoghurt with the chives and chili pepper. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Add the dip to the salad just before serving.

      I developed this recipe for a friend who wound up with many cans of Solo brand apricot filling and was wondering what to make with them. I adapted this recipe from Rose Levy Beranbaum's Sour Cream Coffee Cake, found on page 90 of the Cake Bible. The apricot filling works it way down through the cake and winds up near the bottom of the pan, making an attractive top later when the cake is inverted. Please use some sort of ring pan that holds at least 9 cups. You may substitute butter for the toasted almond oil, but remember that the oil adds flavor. I specifically developed this recipe with the home cook in mind, regular salted butter, and AP flour work well here. To reduce the sodium, use unsalted butter.  
       
      Ingredients
      113 grams (1 stick) salted butter
      26 grams toasted almond oil
      200 grams sugar
      6 grams vanilla extract
      4 egg yolks
      160 grams regular sour cream (do not use low fat or fat free)
      50 grams almond meal
      175 grams all-purpose flour
      2 1/2 grams baking powder
      2 1/2 grams baking soda
      12 ounces (1 can) Solo Apricot Filling
       
      12 Servings
      Preheat the oven to 350°
      Spray a 9+ cup tube or Bundt pan with non-stick spray or grease with an oil & soy lecithin blend.
       
      Lightly toast the almond meal in a frying pan on the stove top until it has a light beige color and has a mild fragrance. Allow to cool.
       
      Cream together the butter, oil, and sugar. Add the vanilla and egg yolks, mix until the mixture is even and creamy. Add the sour cream and mix well. Add the cooled almond flour and mix well.
       
      Sift together the flour, baking powder and baking soda. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid mixture and mix until it everything is evenly incorporated. Do not overmix the batter.
       
      Place 2/3 of the batter evenly in the prepared pan. Place the apricot filling in an even layer on top, keeping a small space between the filling and the pan's edges. Place the remaining batter on top and smooth to create a relatively even surface.
       
      Bake for approximately 50 minutes at 350° or until the top is dark brown and springs back to a light touch.
       
      Allow to cool for 15 minutes. Invert the pan onto a serving plate. Cool and serve. Be cautious about serving this hot, as the apricot filling can cause serious burns. When fully cooled, cover or wrap in plastic wrap to store. Will keep for several days in a cool, dry place.

      Omelette with courgette and tomato salsa.
       
      Today I added a bit of chili pepper to tomato-basil salsa. Because it was quite spicy I decided to add it to a mild dish. I prepared an omelette with courgette and goat cheese. The salsa added an excellent piquancy to it. I recommend this dish for a fast and light meal.

      Ingredients:
       
      omelette
      3 eggs
      150g of courgette
      3-4 slices of goat cheese
      2 tablespoons of milk
      1 tablespoon of flour
      1 tablespoon of butter
      salt and pepper
       
      salsa
      2 tomatoes
      3 tablespoons of minced basil
      quarter of an onion
      2 cloves of garlic
      half a chili pepper
      3 tablespoons of olive oil
      2 tablespoons of lemon juice
      1 teaspoon of honey
       
      Start by preparing the salsa. Cube the tomato and dice the garlic, onion and chili pepper. Mix the vegetables together. Make a sauce with the olive oil, lemon juice and honey. Add it to the vegetables and mix it in. Leave in the fridge.
      Slice the courgette very thin. Whisk the eggs with the milk and add the flour. Spice it up with salt and pepper. Melt the butter in a pan. Pour half the egg mass into it and fry for a while at medium heat. Arrange half of the courgette slices on top along with the slices of goat cheese and the rest of the courgette. Pour the rest of the egg mass onto it and fry it. When the eggs have congealed, turn the omelette upside down and fry for a few seconds. Serve at once with the tomato salsa.

      Enjoy your meal!
