    Strawberry jamming finale

     

    : So the strawberries are finally slowing down, the end of the season is in sight… and do I feel relief that I will no longer be chained to the kitchen counter, three nights a week, preparing strawberries for jam? Am I sick of the sight of them, turning into one myself, in a word, jaded? Surprisingly enough I’m not. Six weeks of making jam and I could carry on longer. I sneak into the larder to count the jars…have I sold too many? Will it be enough for the family for the year and what about Christmas presents? Two weeks ago I was merrily flogging it at the market, secure in the knowledge I could make more. Now friends are ringing up asking to buy jam and I’m grudgingly parting with it but the Scrooge hoarding instinct is kicking in, a sure sign of the end of the season. And I never did master the thick jam versus runny jam dilemma, the jam decided for itself what it would become, not me. So I cannot yet claim to be a professional jam maker, not when the jam is in charge of the process. Further experiments will have to wait until next year, when at the beginning of the new season I can afford to be lavish with the strawberries and if a batch burns in the attempt to thicken it won’t be a disaster, I’ll be able to use it for baking jam squares, where the caramel overtones are a bonus. Part of the magic of strawberries is their cheerful colour as well as their scent. I’m going to miss the piles of fruit on the table, waiting to be sorted for selling, in the fridge in punnets, to be delivered in the morning, bowls of seconds for the family to eat and containers of the rest for jam. The youngberries will be starting soon, like blackberries, they have their own allure and make great summer puddings, but they just don’t quite have that special something that strawberries have…! So what will I fill my jars with now? Well the good news is that apricots are just starting to creep into the shops. Unfortunately we only have one tree and this year it has very little fruit on it, we need to plant some more trees but it will be a few years before they produce properly. So we check out the fruit in the shops. It’s a bit like playing the stock market. We’re waiting for the price to come down, to buy loads and jam them all, but if we wait too long and misjudge the timing the price will shoot up again or there’ll be none left, it’s a short season. So perhaps I’ll play it safe and buy a couple of kilos next week and then hope to splurge the week after on 5 kilos as cheap as can be, but I can’t risk being caught short of apricot jam. We’re on our last jar of last year’s and there’ll be a family uprising if I don’t get in next year’s supply. The apricot jam recipe – very similar to the strawberry jam recipe but less temperamental. The worst I’ve managed to do has been burn it and even then it was usable in baking, just a slight caramel added flavour! 1 kg apricots halved and stoned 750g sugar Pack fruit and sugar in a stainless steel or enamel pan and keep in fridge overnight. Heat slowly, stirring occasionally until the sugar has dissolved. Turn up the heat a bit and boil rapidly (stir occasionally to prevent burning) for about 20-30 mins. Test a drop on a cold plate. If, after 2 minutes, when you push your fingernail through it, the skin wrinkles, it is done. If not test every 5 minutes till it does. Pour into hot sterilised jam jars and seal immediately. NB apricots have plenty of pectin, so you don’t need to add lemon juice to get the set. For more tips on jam making and the strawberry jam recipe, look at my article Strawberry Jamming Again.

    Supersweet corn ready for the grill

     

    Fresh corn and the grill go together like fireworks and the Fourth of July, but you don't have to wait for a holiday or special occasion to enjoy corn on the cob. Supersweet corn from Florida is ready to grill right now. Unlike traditional corn, Supersweet corn has more natural sugars and stays sweet longer. To keep kernels sweet and tender, always store fresh corn in the refrigerator in a high-humidity drawer or wrapped loosely in plastic. For perfect grilled corn follow these tips: Out of the husk-for slightly charred, smoky flavor: Brush ears with melted butter or flavored oil; grill, turning often, until kernels are golden, 7 to 10 minutes. In the husk-for more intense flavor: Pull back the husks and remove silks; replace husks and tie in place with a strip of husk or string. Soak in water for 10 minutes. Grill, turning often, for 7 to 10 minutes. For easy eating, pull back the husks and tie together to form a handle. In foil-for moist, make-ahead corn: Place each husked ear on a square of foil; brush with butter (plain or seasoned with garlic and/or herbs), barbecue sauce or flavored oil; wrap ears. Grill, turning often, for 7 to 10 minutes. Indoor "grilling": Place husked ears on a shallow pan, lightly brush with butter, about 6 inches from a hot broiler; grill, turning often, until golden, 7 to 10 minutes. After grilling, add flavor to the corn with one of these combinations: Easy Pesto Butter: Mix one stick of softened butter with 2 tablespoons pesto-from a jar or made at home. Buffalo Corn Butter: Mix 1/2 stick softened butter with 1 tablespoon each of hot sauce and lemon juice. Herb Butter: Mix 1/2 stick softened butter with 1 teaspoon of your favorite dried herb (such as rosemary or dill). Goat Cheese Spread: Combine 1/4 cup goat cheese with 2 tablespoons butter and 1 teaspoon dried thyme. Sesame Soy Sauce: Combine 1/4 cup soy sauce with 2 tablespoons each lime juice and toasted sesame oil.

         
    Sweet crunchy apple makes a cameo appearance

     

    An apple a day may keep the doctor away, but it's also a healthy reminder of favorite flavors and aromas, such as homemade cider, fresh apple pie and autumn adventures to go picking in the orchard. Now there's a new apple in the grocery store that's likely to please the pickiest of palates: Cameo® apples are a gourmet variety noted for their thin skin. Whether eaten fresh out of hand or used in a favorite recipe, Cameos have an irresistible combination of sweet-tart taste and crisp crunch. Born in the U. S.A., the Cameo apple was discovered as a chance seedling in the 1980s and has been grown commercially for the past six years. Cameos are a good source of fiber, vitamin C, folate and potassium-and they're rich in cancer-fighting antioxidants. Plus, one medium apple contains just 80 calories. Here's one simple, delicious and zesty way to enjoy this Washington beauty: Cameo Apple Salsa Preparation time: 5 minutes Refrigeration time: 1/2 hour Makes: 4 cups 2 cups Cameo apples, diced 1/2 cup red onion, diced 1/2 cup (1 large) Anaheim chili pepper, finely chopped 1 jalapeсo pepper, finely chopped (optional) 1/4 cup lime juice 1 Tbsp. chopped fresh cilantro 1/4 tsp. salt 1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper Combine all ingredients in large bowl and mix well. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate 30 minutes or until ready to serve. Tip: For a snack, serve with tortilla chips or use as a topping to accent a meal of grilled chicken, fish or pork.

    Sweet vidalia onions take on today s cooks need for speed. southern cooking expert paula deen shares a favorite quick and easy recipe

     

    Convenience is a key concern for today's time-pressed cooks. Less than 30 minutes preparation time, recipes with less than seven ingredients and quick-and-easy cleanup are three important issues for home cooks. Saturday Night Vidalia® Onions from Paula Deen-cookbook author, chef/ proprietor of The Lady and Sons restaurant in Savannah, Ga., and host of Food Network's "Paula's Home Cooking"-is a recipe that satisfies today's cooks' need for speed. As Paula says, "If your Southern food is authentic, it's not fussy! It doesn't require a sophisticated palate. The ingredients are distinctly Southern and homegrown." That's just what Paula's recipe for Saturday Night Vidalia® Onions is, too. Real. Simple. Homegrown in Georgia. This recipe can be prepared in the oven or outside over hot coals. Either way it's delightful, just like its creator. More easy recipes featuring Vidalia Onions may be viewed and printed by logging on to vidaliaonion. org. Paula Deen's latest cookbook is "Paula Deen's Kitchen Classics" (Random House, $29.95). Paula Deen's Saturday Night Vidalia® Onions 1 large Vidalia® Onion per person 1 beef bouillon cube per onion 1 tablespoon butter per onion Pepper to taste Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Trim a slice from the top of each onion, and peel the onion without cutting off the root end. With a potato peeler, cut a small cone-shaped section from the center of the onion. Cut the onion into quarters from the top down, stopping within a half-inch of the root end. Place a bouillon cube in the center, slip slivers of butter in between the sections, and sprinkle with pepper. Wrap each onion in a double thickness of heavy-duty foil and bake in preheated oven for about 45 minutes. Or, prepare a fire in charcoal grill and place the foil-wrapped onions directly onto the hot coals and cook for 45 minutes, turning every so often. Serve in individual bowls because they produce a lot of broth, which tastes like French Onion Soup! Serves one person per onion.

    Table grapes are in season

     

    If you thought table grapes were the same all year round, it's time to have a taste test. The year's best crop is fresh from Mexico. From May through July, the finest harvest of green, red and black grapes will begin to hit supermarket shelves. These grapes' bright color and crisp texture signify the end of winter, when fresh, new harvests begin arriving from the Mexican state of Sonora. Grapes for wine and brandy have been grown in Sonora since the days of the Spanish missionaries almost four centuries ago. Out of this tradition, growers in Sonora began growing fresh grapes that are enjoyed across the world. Sonora grapes are coveted for their notably sweet, juicy flavor. With more than 30,000 acres of vineyards, Sonora supplies 300 million pounds of grapes for U. S. consumption. Grapes offer several benefits. Not only are they a handy snack, but they're a unique addition to many summer dishes, including green salads and fruit salads. They enhance the beauty of these dishes as well as their nutritional value. One and a half cups of grapes provide 25 percent of the Daily Value of vitamin C, as well as fiber, vitamin A, calcium and iron. Try pairing mango and red onion with grapes in Red Grape and Mango Relish, a fragrant, colorful sauce to serve warm or cold. Use it as a topping for grilled chicken or fish, or just enjoy it with some tortilla chips. Red Grape and Mango Relish 3 cups seedless red grapes 2 tablespoons fresh minced ginger 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 teaspoon allspice 3/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes 1/2 cup diced red onion 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro 1 mango, pitted and diced 2 teaspoons fresh lime juice Pinch of salt Purйe grapes in a blender. Strain purйe, separating juice and grape pulp. Place pulp aside. Pour freshly strained juice into a saucepan and bring to a simmer with ginger, garlic, allspice and red pepper flakes. In a separate bowl, combine grape pulp with diced onion, cilantro, mango, lime juice and salt. Add the heated mixture and stir gently to combine all ingredients. Serve warm or chilled. Makes about 3 cups.

         
    Tailgating fun with shrimp

     

    Football season means party time, and nothing is more fun than tailgating with friends before the big game. Joe Cahn, the self-proclaimed "commissioner of tailgating," suggests celebrating in style with Wild American shrimp, a finger food that easily complements beer, wine and soft drinks. "Wild American shrimp go great with tailgating because it's easy, simple and good," said Cahn, who has driven 250,000 miles visiting thousands of cities and eaten his way through more than 370 tailgate parties. Wild American shrimp is caught off the Gulf and South Atlantic coasts. Much of the shrimp consumers eat is pond-raised and imported. "You have a choice and may not realize you are eating shrimp grown in ponds and imported to this country," Cahn said. "And shrimp from the Gulf and Atlantic just tastes better." Wild American shrimp can be cooked ahead of time or grilled minutes before serving. Low in fat and packed with flavor, protein and cardio-protective omega-3 fatty acids, it gives party-goers plenty of energy to cheer for their favorite team. For your next tailgating celebration, try this easy recipe from Wild American Shrimp Inc.: GRILLED TEXAS WILD AMERICAN SHRIMP (Makes 6 servings) 1/4 cup vegetable oil 1/4 cup tequila 1/4 cup red wine vinegar 2 tablespoons Mexican lime juice 1 tablespoon ground red chiles 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped 1 red bell pepper, finely chopped 24 large raw shrimp, peeled and de-veined (tails left on) Mix all ingredients except shrimp in shallow glass or plastic dish. Stir in shrimp. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. Remove shrimp from marinade, reserving liquid. Thread 4 shrimp on each of six (8-inch) metal skewers. Grill over medium coals, turning once until pink, 2 minutes to 3 minutes on each side. In a non-reactive saucepan, bring marinade to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, until bell pepper is tender, about 5 minutes. Serve with shrimp.

         
    Taking dinner outdoors americans get their grills on

     

    While nearly everyone in America grills, not everyone is comfortable barbecuing more than the basics. Here's an approach to grilling you can "steak" your reputation on: Neighborhood grocery stores can help make the outdoor cooking experience easier by providing everything a griller needs under one roof. The Great Grilling program at Safeway features recipes, tools and high-quality ingredients for families that want to create delicious meals on the grill, and their Rancher's Reserve beef is guaranteed tender. The recipes were developed in the test kitchens of Sunset magazine to make it easier for shoppers to grill up a meal on the spur of the moment. Whether using a charcoal or gas grill, having the right accessories on hand makes for easy and safe grilling-and even easier cleanup. A wide spatula, extra-long tongs, a long-handled brush and a spray bottle with water are the foundation for a great griller's tool kit. Direct-heat grilling is best for thin cuts of meat that cook quickly. It gets them nicely browned on the outside in the short time they take to get done in the middle. Here's a surefire recipe using direct-heat grilling: Flank Steak with Green Olive-Jalapeсo Tapenade A Mediterranean-inspired tapenade is a flavorful addition to this tender flank steak. Prep time: About 20 minutes Grill time: 13 to 17 minutes, plus 5 minutes to rest off the grill Makes: 4 servings 1 jar (4.5 oz.) Safeway Select Stuffed Jalapeсo Olives, drained 2 garlic cloves, peeled 1 cup coarsely chopped Italian parsley 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves 1 tablespoon grated lemon peel 1/4 cup Safeway Select Verdi Olive Oil 1 Rancher's Reserve Flank Steak (about 11/2 lb.) 1. Prepare barbecue grill and preheat for direct-heat cooking. For charcoal grill, before you put the grill over the hot coals, brush it with a medium coat of oil; for gas grill, when hot, brush grill with a medium coat of oil. 2. Rinse olives and drain wellbine olives, garlic, parsley, rosemary, lemon peel and oil in a food processor and pulse until mixture forms a fine paste. Set aside 1/2 cup of the tapenade mixture for seasoning meat; reserve remainder for serving or another use. 3. Rinse flank steak and pat dry. With the tip of a sharp knife, make shallow diagonal cuts about 1 inch apart over one side of steak, then make cuts perpendicular to the first to create a diamond pattern. Repeat on other side of steak. 4. Spread 1/2 cup of the olive mixture on both sides of steak to coat evenly. 5. Lay steak on oiled grill over a solid bed of hot coals or high heat on a gas grill. Keep charcoal grill uncovered; close lid on gas grill. Cook steak until browned on the bottom (lift edge with tongs to check), 8 to 10 minutes. With tongs or a wide spatula, turn steak and continue to cook until done as desired, about 2 minutes longer for rare (red in center; cut to test) or 4 minutes longer for medium-rare (pink in center). 6.

    Tasty fettucine with asparagus red pepper and avocado

     

    Ingredients: 1 16 oz. package organic fettucine noodles 1 pound fresh organic asparagus (try to obtain local, farm fresh!) 2 organic red peppers 2 organic avocados One half organic onion One quarter cup organic olive oil One half cup organic balsamic vinegar Fresh ground salt and pepper to taste Bring one large pot of water and one smaller saucepan of water to a boil. Meanwhile, chop asparagus into one-inch chunks. Dice peppers and avocados. To dice the avocado, carefully cut around the entire circumference with a knife. Twist the two halves in opposite directions until they come apart. Squeeze the half holding the pit until the pit pops out. (If you rinse the pit off, it makes a silly temporary cat toy.) Use a knife to cut long parallel lines into the avocado, then cut lines perpendicular to those. Use a spoon to pop the cubes out of the skin. Slice onion very thinly, then cut each thin slab in half and separate layers to create slivers. Whip oil and vinegar together in a smaller bowl; adjust ratio of vinegar to increase tanginess if you like. When smaller saucepan of water boils, add asparagus and cook for only two minutes--no longer! The water may not return to a boil, which is just fine. You want the asparagus to be quite firm. Drain asparagus, then place back in saucepan and cover to keep warm. Cook fettucine in large pot of water until it’s al dente; in other words, until it’s just done and still firm--not overcooked and mushy. Pasta is healthier if it’s not overcooked. Drain pasta, then place in large bowl. Add vinaigrette to noodles and mix until noodles are thoroughly coated. Whip up more vinaigrette to add if you like. Add asparagus, peppers, avocado and onion. Fold mixture until vegetables are evenly distributed throughout the pasta. If you want a little protein to accompany this dish, serve it with a light-colored organic or local semi-hard cheese on the side, such as raclette. This dish also pairs nicely with white wine. It easily serves six. This dish is addictive, so there won’t be any leftovers--which is a good thing, because the avocados won’t keep anyway!

         
    Tasty tomatoes add variety to meals

     

    Today, we look for versatility, variety and convenience in the foods we eat. Tomatoes top the list of versatile foods because they are not only good for you, they complement almost any meal or occasion. There are more than a dozen varieties of tomatoes. Slices of large, round tomatoes are great on the grill; Roma or plum tomatoes make delicious sauces; and cherry or grape tomatoes make a convenient snack. Tomatoes' versatility makes them ideal for all eating and entertaining occasions, whether used as an ingredient, an accompaniment or as a stand-alone. To ensure the best flavor, never refrigerate. The tomato makes an enzyme that produces flavor as it ripens. Once the temperature falls below 55 degrees, it permanently stops producing that enzyme. Tomatoes are an important dietary source of lycopene, an antioxidant being studied for its ability to keep tissues healthy. Tomatoes also are high in vitamins and fiber - one medium red tomato has 20 percent of the daily requirements of vitamin A, 40 percent of the daily requirements of vitamin C and as much fiber as a slice of whole wheat bread. This tomato recipe, developed by SunRipe Produce, meets nutritional standards set by Produce for Better Health Foundation.

    Tender loving airsoft care

     

    There are some very important rules for safety when using airsoft guns. The first caution is to thoroughly read your airsoft gun manual before using the gun. Each airsoft gun is going to have different characteristics for operating it. After you play with airsoft guns, you should always remove its magazine and switch it back to the mode of single shot. This releases the spring within hthe box. Next you should disconnect the airsoft gun's battery and clean and lubricate all airsoft guns before storing them. The inner barrels of the guns should be sprayed with silicone on the hop up if you've used them extensively. There are maintenance tips specific to gas operated air soft guns. With these pistols you must clean all dirt off their mechanisms, release the gas that remains in the magazine, and lubricate most areas of the gun. When you fill gas airsoft gun magazines, do it the proper way. Invert the gas as you fill the magazine. If you're unsure consult the user manual and follow the illustrations and instructions carefully. Make sure you don't use too much gas in your airsoft guns. If you overfill the magazine or their seals could be damaged and this could result in gas leakage. The standard amount is a charge of only 2-3 seconds. The magazine of these gas airsoft guns could get quite cold after they are used a lot. What this will do is decrease the guns power. If this happens wait for 10 minutes before continuing your play so that your airsoft gun's magazine can warm up.
