Can You Make Apple Sauce From Peels Without Apple Fruit?

2020-10-25 23:15:00 chefenvy

I read that most of the pectin in an apple is in the peels, not in the apple fruit. If you cook the peels alone – leaving out the apple fruit – will it become a viscous fluid like an apple sauce? Is there a recipe Reading More May Cause Envy…

Less than ideal apples - what can I do with them?

2020-10-22 11:42:00 chefenvy

We’ve gotten a lot of apples from our CSA, and some of them are not much fun to eat. I’m looking for ideas for things to do with them. But nothing that involves canning, etc. I don’t think they’d be any good in a salad. Could I do a batch Reading More May Cause Envy…

Sea salt with iodine anywhere?

2020-10-21 19:24:00 chefenvy

I’m looking for medium or coarse grind sea salt with iodine? Can’t find it anywhere. Only one was from Morton’s, which is fine grind (and I highly suspect Morton’s brand in when it comes to sea salt).
Puzzling why there is such a paucity of iodined sea salt, unless it Reading More May Cause Envy…

Minute Tapioca, Not

2020-10-20 20:05:00 chefenvy

Kraft’s Minute Tapioca has disappeared, not sure why, but there isn’t any. I have bought “French Granulated Tapioca” (online from Nuts.com) which sounds like about the same thing for making tapioca pudding, I will give it a try. Is there any experience out there, or any advice? Reading More May Cause Envy…

Hi all. I tried using the search function and it wasn’t much help.

Just in time for Halloween... rabbit blood

My French girlfriend raves about civet de lapin—a rabbit stew that requires that the reserved blood be used for the accompanying sauce. So far all the usual suspects, from Dartagnan to Ottomanelli to Esposito Meats, have said they “get the rabbits already cleaned,” and the last added that, to Reading More May Cause Envy…

Substitute for Sugar When Tempering Eggs?

2020-10-19 01:41:00 chefenvy

In recipes that blend eggs into a sauce – like custard – sugar has a chemical role in helping to disperse the egg protein throughout the solution before it hardens. Is there a substitute to sugar that we can use that has similar chemistry? I am Reading More May Cause Envy…

Portable induction help?

Very perplexed. I’m about to lose my gas range and have to replace it with portable electric burners. I’m leaning towards induction but have never used it before.
I’m mostly worried about my somewhat thin triply duxtop cookware getting warped. And running 2 electric burners without blowing a breaker.

I am making a good new spanakopita recipe that includes chickpeas, feta and ricotta. The spanakopita is more of a tart, not individual wrapped pockets, so I am treating it as the main course. I’ve made it before so I know it is good. But what do I serve it Reading More May Cause Envy…
