any good sauerkraut recipes anyone?? :confused:

i know Ysa's sauerkraut soup is delicious-- maybe you should post the recipe!

i'm all up for mashed potatoes & sauerkraut & a sweet something, with sultanas/raisins(what's the difference anyway), i know people add canned fruit but that's really evil. what else should be really nice??

My friend's mom used to put a tart chopped apple in sauerkraut...yum!! She rinsed the sauerkraut, put a fresh apple in, peeled and chopped, and cooked the lot with sausages. I think it would be good without the meat, too, but you might add some caraway seeds while cooking.

I hope you enjoy your meal, sounds great! And sauerkraut has many health benefits -- salut!

for a lovely /simple meal composed entirely of fermented foods mo recommends this ::
Hi Frieda :)

One thing that goes very nicely with sauerkraut is tempeh
just slice it and cook it with a bit of oil and a little soy sauce or salt
until it is nicely browned and serve with sauerkraut
..... the person that served this to me insisted
it goes really well with dark beer
not really sure about that :p

I have a lot of pecans. I have a pie crust. I have corn syrup and vanilla. I would like to make pecan pie. If there were chocolate chips involved, I would be really interested.

You need eggs, sugar & butter...

priceyfatprude 12-01-2009 04:31 AM

Also if you have enough pecans, egg whites & cinnamon, you can make some yummy treats.

trisherina 12-01-2009 10:59 AM

Of course I have all those things! Now cough up a recipe. :cool:

My dad makes one similar to this one, without the bourbon, but it sounds like a nice addition:

Chocolate Chip Bourbon Pecan Pie
Courtesy of Michele's Pies in Nowalk, Conn.

1 10" piecrust
3 large eggs, room temperature
cup sugar
1 cups dark corn syrup
tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoons bourbon

3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted and kept warm
1 cup chopped pecans
cups semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350

Place the eggs, sugar, corn syrup, vanilla and Bourbon in a bowl and mix. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl at least two times while mixing. Add the warm butter. Mix well. Combine the pecans and chocolate chips and sprinkle them on the bottom of the pie shell. Pour the filling over the nuts and chips.

Place the pie on the baking sheet on the bottom shelf of the 350 degree oven and bake it for 30 minutes. The edges of the filling will rise, but the middle will still be a little bouncy. However, the pie will continue to bake after it is removed from the oven. To set up and have it firm enough to slice, give the pie 2 to 3 hours of cooling at room temperature, or a half hour of cooling at room temperature and an hour in the refrigerator.

Interesting... thank you. I'd have to substitute Crown Royal...

^ that made me chuckle far more than the
comic strip
come to think of it...

New favorite recipe for Tomato Tart, could have eaten the whole thing myself.

1/2 c each all-purpose and soft white whole wheat flours
2 T butter cut into the flour, but leave some little lumps
2 T canola oil
pinch of salt
a few T ice water to make it come together...or just buy one.
Roll out, bake in a 10" tart pan at 400 degrees for 10 minutes.

Roast some halved grape or cherry tomatoes at 225 degrees for a couple of hours, with some olive oil. Use about 1/2 c packed for this recipe, and eat the other ones on toast! They keep in the fridge really well.

Slice a whole red onion and saute on medium with a T of olive oil, 1 tsp balsamic vinegar, and 1/4 tsp vanilla extract (trust me).

Spread the onions and tomatoes in the tart shell, sprinkle with an ounce or two of shredded cheese (provolone, fontina, swiss...whatever).

Beat 2 eggs with 1/4 c of milk or half and half, 1/4 tsp salt, lots of cracked black pepper, and 1/2 tsp dried basil, and pour over.
Press filling down into the egg mixture a bit, and bake at 375 degrees for 20 minutes or until puffed and not jiggly. It's good hot or at room temp.

Really, really good.

^ stick em in a bowl together and eat.

I cannot believe that it took me this long to find out you can do this...there are tons of recipes for it online. The butter flavoring in microwave popcorn is bad for the lungs, and all the fat and salt in it is bad for the heart, plus it is like 5 or 6 dollars a pound, but it's a bit of a hassle to pop it at home otherwise. UNTIL NOW.

Homemade Microwave Popcorn
1/4 to 1/2 cup of plain old popcorn
1 brown paper lunch sack
Optional - 1/2-1 tsp canola oil or butter, 1/4-1/2 tsp salt, or garlic salt, plus some black pepper if you like, or parmesan, or crumbled nori

Toss in the bag, fold over the top a couple of times, and microwave for 2 or 3 minutes, until there's only a pop every 2 seconds or so. Makes like 30 bags for a couple of bucks! And no popcorn lung!

I thought it might burst into flame or something, but I've had 3 bags in the last 24 hours, and so far it is only delicious delicious corny popcorn goodness.
:D :D :D

Frieda 06-11-2012 06:24 PM

Hassle to pop popcorn? Pan, oil, herbs & a metal sieve do the trick.. I'll try the paper bag for fun. I have to admit i like to wait for the first few ploinks, run to the pan in excitement and watch the rest go under the sieve.
