Author: 
Recipe type: Pickling and preserving
Serves: 1kg
 
Pickled onion rings are great way to turbo charge any burger, and they also work fantastically as garnishes and salads with just about any meal.
Ingredients
  • 800g Onions (white or red)
  • 3Tbs Non-iodated salt
  • 110g Sugar
  • 2.5ml Coriander seed
  • 2.5ml Mustard seed, or coarsely ground mustard
  • 2.5ml Black peppercorns
Instructions
  1. Pickled onion rings are great way to turbo charge any burger, and they also work fantastically as garnishes and salads with just about any meal.
  2. To start, you'll need 800g onions.
  3. Top and tail the onions and remove the skins.
  4. Cut each onion through the center lengthways and cut the halves into slices of 3mm in thickness.
  5. Place the sliced onion in a large non-reactive bowl.
  6. Measure 3 tablespoons of non-iodated salt, either pickling salt, kosher salt or Himalayan.
  7. Sprinkle this over the onion and mix it in thoroughly.
  8. Allow the onions to stand for 60 minutes.
  9. While the onions sweat, place 110g sugar, 2.5ml coriander seed, 2.5ml mustard seed, or roughly ground mustard and 2.5ml black pepper corns in a saucepan.
  10. Pour in 750ml white wine vinegar.
  11. Heat the pot over medium high heat and bring to a boil. Lower temperature and simmer the mixture for 30 minutes.
  12. While this continues, rinse and strain the onions.
  13. Place a sterilised 1 liter jar in a saucepan, and fill it with the onion rings.
  14. Pour hot water, not boiling water, into the pot around the jar. This will minimize any thermal shock to the glass when the boiling vinegar is added.
  15. Strain the vinegar through a sieve or coffee filter and pour it into the jar until the onions are completely covered.
  16. Any leftover vinegar mixture can be refrigerated for your next batch.
  17. Clip the jar closed and allow the bottle to cool in the water.
  18. The onions will last indefinitely stored in a cool dark place, however, they should be refrigerated once opened.

Caramel Popcorn - How to Make Caramel Popcorn with 3 Ingredients! Caramel Popcorn Recipe!
Author: 
Recipe type: Sweets / Snacks
Cuisine: American
 
Today we're going to make a batch of caramel popcorn with just a few simple ingredients. The recipe is quick and easy, and really tasty!
Ingredients
  • 200g Sugar
  • 135g Unpopped popcorn
  • 30ml Oil
  • Salt (optional)
Instructions
  1. To start, measure out 200g sugar and 135g of unpopped popcorn.
  2. You will also need 30ml oil, and Himalayan rock salt, should you want your caramel popcorn salted.
  3. Place the corn in a pan large enough for the seeds to lie in a single layer.
  4. Add the oil to the pan and stir the pan briefly to coat the popcorn with the oil.
  5. Flatten the seeds into a single layer and put the lid on the pan.
  6. Light the gas and set it to medium high.
  7. In about 2 minutes, the corn will start to pop.
  8. Give the pan a gentle shake intermittently to achieve even cooking and avoid burning.
  9. When the popping subsides, turn off the heat and remove the lid.
  10. Transfer the popped corn to a large heatproof bowl, making sure leave any unpopped kernels behind.
  11. Wipe out your pan and pour in the sugar.
  12. Place this over medium high heat.
  13. After 2 to 3 minutes the sugar will start to melt, and this is your cue to start stirring.
  14. More and more of the sugar will melt until you have a golden mass of molten sugar.
  15. Bring the molten sugar to a boil. As it starts to foam up, turn off the heat.
  16. Give the molten caramelised sugar a final stir to knock down the foam, and pour it over the popcorn. Be very careful when working with molten sugar as spilling or splashing this on your body can cause horrific burns.
  17. Give the popcorn a thorough stir, making sure to dig to the bottom of the bowl to lift the caramel that has run through.
  18. Transfer the coated popcorn to alarge baking pan. Break the pieces apart and allow it cool for a few minutes before serving, or storing it in an airtight container.
  19. If you want your caramel popcorn salted, grind your salt over the popcorn at this stage.

Perfect Burger Buns - How to Bake the Best Burger Buns Ever - Independence Day 2018 Special
Author: 
Recipe type: Burgers & Barbecue
Cuisine: American
Serves: 24 x 100g
 
After a short holiday following episode 600, I'm back. Tangzhou milk buns have a supremely soft, light and feathery texture all their own, however they are actually too soft to be used as burger buns. I have adjusted the original tangzhou recipe, keeping the technique, to make a firmer bun with the same light and airy texture, that makes for the perfect burger bun. In addition, these buns have a much better shelf-life, and freeze exceptionally well too.
Ingredients
  • Group 1:!
  • 1.35kg All-purpose flour
  • 15ml Salt
  • 10g Active dry yeast
  • 30ml Sugar
  • Group 2:!
  • 375ml Water
  • 75g All-purpose flour
  • Group 3:!
  • 450ml Full cream milk
  • 3 Eggs, beaten
  • 90ml Sunflower oil
Instructions
  1. To start, place 1.35kg of all-purpose flour in your stand mixer bowl along with 15ml of salt, 10g of active dry yeast and 30ml of sugar.
  2. Give these a quick stir to combine.
  3. Add 75g of all-purpose flour to a medium size pot and pour in 375ml of water.
  4. Use a whisk to mix until smooth.
  5. Measure out 450ml of full cream milk, 90ml of sunflower oil and beat 3 eggs. Put these aside for later.
  6. Place the pot over medium low heat and gently heat the flour water mixture. Whisk the mixture continuously.
  7. As the mixture heats up it will start to thicken. Continue whisking to keep the mixture smooth.
  8. The mixture will soon thicken to a porridge consistency, and will become slightly translucent.
  9. Remove the pot from the heat and whisk in the milk.
  10. Pour in the eggs and whisk these in.
  11. And finally, whisk in the oil.
  12. Pour this mixture into the mixing bowl on your stand mixer.
  13. Start the mixer kneading on medium slow speed, and allow this to continue kneading for 15 minutes until the dough is nice and smooth.
  14. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover with clingwrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 90 minutes until at least doubled in size.
  15. Turn the dough out onto you work surface. Do not dust the surface or dough with flour. It will not be necessary, and will actually harm the texture of the buns.
  16. Knead the dough briefly to knock any large air bubbles out.
  17. Using your scale, divide the dough into 100g portions for regular burger buns, 120g portions for large buns, and 150g potions for giant buns. I am making regular sized buns which are perfect for 100g or quarter pound patties.
  18. To form the buns, stretch the dough from the top of the portion of dough to the bottom, working around the edge of the dough.
  19. Circle the dough in your index finger and thumb and crimp the bottom of the bun together.
  20. Place the bun on the work surface, cup your hand over the bun and finish rounding it with a circular motion.
  21. Press the bun flat and transfer it to a baking sheet lined with baking parchment.
  22. Continue with the remaining buns, leaving about a half inch of space between each one.
  23. Cover the buns loosely with clingfilm and allow the buns to rise in a warm place for 45 minutes until they are touching as they are here.
  24. minutes into this rise, start preheating your oven to 200c or 400f.
  25. Brush the buns with beaten egg and sprinkle the tops liberally with hulled sesame seeds.
  26. Bake the buns in the center of your oven for 15 to 20 minutes until golden on top.
  27. Remove the buns from the oven and transfer them to cooling racks.
  28. If we cut one of these beauties open, we see the amazing light airy, feathery texture, with excellent oven spring and an improved firmness, making these buns the perfect burger buns.

How to Make Naturally Fermented Sauerkraut - courtesy of Microcosm Publishing
Author: 
Recipe type: Vegetable / Fermenting
Cuisine: German
 
A few episodes back I introduced a new book all about natural fermentation, called Basic Fermentation, published by Microcosm Publishing. Consequently they have sent me the final hard cover copy to replace my preliminary copy. It is full of excellent fermentation recipes, all very clearly explained and accompanied with good quality full color photography. You can check out their website by clicking the link in the description below. Today we're going to feature another recipe from this book when we make a batch of delicious home-fermented sauerkraut.
Ingredients
  • Cabbage
  • Kosher salt
Instructions
  1. We will be using a new technique to do this, as well as the traditional method.
  2. For the new technique, you will need to own a ham press which will negate the need for pressing plates and weights.
  3. To start, strip away any dodgy leaves on your cabbage.
  4. This cabbage is about 1.2kg once stripped. I will use half of this for each method.
  5. Use a large knife to cut the cabbage into quarters.
  6. Use a cleaver to cut away the heart from each quarter.
  7. Cut each quarter into thin strips.
  8. I have transferred half of this to a large non-reactive bowl, and measured out 18g of kosher salt. This is 3% of the weight of the cabbage. This makes it really simple to calculate the salt requirement no matter what quantity of cabbage you start with.
  9. Pour the salt over the cabbage and mix this in.
  10. Pack the cabbage into the ham press a little at a time, pressing it down firmly after each addition. This is a 1.5 liter press, and 600g of cabbage fits perfectly, filling to an inch below the rim.
  11. Insert the pressure plate and secure the lid and you're done.
  12. For the traditional method, place the remaining cabbage in a large non-reactive bowl and add 3% salt to the cabbage. Mix the salt into the cabbage.
  13. Pack the cabbage into a tall cylindrical glass or ceramic container, pressing it down firmly after each addition.
  14. Now you will need something to press the cabbage. I am using a glass tumbler with closed end in contact with the cabbage.
  15. To press this down, I have a short langth of bamboo, but you could use anything from a pencil to a butter knife for this.
  16. Place the stick across the tumbler.
  17. Loop a long elastic band underneat the container and bring the ends up to the stick. The elastic will pull the stick downwards, applying pressure to the tumbler and the cabbage.
  18. Transfer the container and the ham press to a warm shady place to ferment.
  19. After 10 to 14 days, your sauerkraut will be ready to eat. This is when you will notice the vast difference between home-fermented kraut and the packaged or canned versions. This is bright in appearance, with loads of crunch and an amazingly vibrant pickle flavor.
  20. All you need to now is enjoy your masterpiece.

How to Make Tempura Onion Rings - Gourmet Deep Fried Onion Rings
Author: 
Recipe type: Vegatables / Onions
 
Onion rings can be absolutely awesome, or they can be sloppy, oily and terrible. This tempura onion recipe is one of the best I have tried, and really takes the humble onion ring into the realm of gourmet cuisine.
Ingredients
  • 500ml Buttermilk
  • 15ml Tabasco sauce
  • 5ml Salt
  • 2-3 Large onions
  • 2 Eggs
  • 475ml Soda water (well chilled)
  • 1 Cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Cup Rice flour
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 2.5ml Black pepper
  • 2 Cups all purpose flour
Instructions
  1. To start, add 15ml or a tablespoon of Tabasco sauce to a jug.
  2. Pour in 500ml of buttermilk, and add 5ml or a teaspoon of salt.
  3. Give this a good stir and set it aside.
  4. Cut 2 large onions into rings of about 10mm or a half inch thick. Place these in a large pan.
  5. Pour the buttermilk mixture over the onions, and rearrange the rings so that they are in a single layer.
  6. Cover the pan with cling-wrap and transfer it to your refrigerator for a few hours, preferably overnight. Make sure to turn the onions a few times during this time.
  7. The following day, remove the onions from the refrigerator, and measure 2 cups of all-purpose flour into a bowl.
  8. Start preheating your oil to 180c or 350f.
  9. Whisk 2 eggs in another bowl.
  10. Pour 475ml of soda water into the eggs and mix this briefly.
  11. Add a cup of sifted all-purpose flour and a cup of sifted rice flour to the egg soda mixture. Whisk this until smooth.
  12. Add a generous gring of salt and cracked black pepper and mix these in.
  13. Use a skewer to lift an onion ring from the marinade and dredge it in the flour.
  14. Drop this into the batter, and continue until you have coated about a dozen rings.
  15. Make sure to submerge the rings in the batter while doing this.
  16. Use the skewer to hook the rings out of the batter and drop them in the oil. Allow the rings to fry for 5 minutes, turning halfway through.
  17. The rings will be superbly crispy and lightly golden.
  18. Use a slotted spoon to lift them from the oil before continuing with the next batch of rings.
  19. When frying, make sure you oil is up to temperature, and that you don't overcrowd the pan. This will drop the temperature and will result in overly oily onion rings.
  20. Serve your creation piping hot as a snack, or accompaniment to your main course and enjoy.

Bulk Producing Potato Croquettes at Home
Author: 
Recipe type: Potatoes
Cuisine: French
Serves: 2kg
 
Potato croquettes are an all-time favorite with their creamy inside and super-crispy shell. Made in small quantities, they are actually quite a hassle to make, especially considering that they are an accompaniment. Today we're going to make these in bulk, allowing you to freeze the croquettes and use them as required without all the hassle.
Ingredients
Main Ingredients
  • 2kg Roughly mashed potato
  • 60ml Full cream milk
  • 2 Tbs Salt
  • 1 Tsp White pepper
  • 4 Tbs Dried onion flakes
  • 4 Egg yolks, beaten
  • 6 Tbs All-purpose flour
For the Coating:
  • Eggs, beaten
  • All- purpose flour
  • Finely crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs
Special Equipment
  • Sausage stuffer
  • 300mm Ruler or strip of rigid plastic
Instructions
  1. To start, place 2kg of roughly mashed potato in you mixer bowl.
  2. Add 2 Tablespoons salt, 1 teaspoon white pepper, 4 tablespoons dried onion flakes and 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour.
  3. Combine 4 egg yolks with 60ml of full cream milk and pour this in.
  4. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached and mix the mash until totally combined. This will take about 5 minutes. You can also mix it by hand if you don't have a mixer.
  5. Attach the funnel of your choice to your sausage stuffer. I am using a 35mm funnel, but you can go with any diameter of your choice.
  6. Fill the hopper with the potato mixture making sure to press it down after each addition to avoid air pockets in the mix.
  7. Close the hopper and advance the plunger.
  8. For the next step, you will need a school ruler, or a length of reasonably rigid plastic.
  9. The potato mixture will be extruded along the plastic to make long cylinders of potato mix.
  10. Advance the mixture along the funnel until it reaches the end of the funnel.
  11. Hold the plastic under the funnel while advancing the potato, progressively moving the plastic at the same rate as the potato exits the funnel.
  12. As it nears the end of the ruler, slice the potato off clean.
  13. Roll the log of potato from the ruler into a large pan.
  14. Continue until all of the potato has been extruded. At this diameter, you will get about 2 meters of extruded potato.
  15. Cover the pans and transfer them to your freezer overnight.
  16. The following day you will need a bowl of all-purpose flour, whisked eggs, and a bowl of finely crushed cornflakes or breadcrumbs. These quantities are all dependent on how much potato you processed.
  17. Take a little of the flour and sprinkle it over a couple of large platters. This is where the coated croquettes will sit waiting to be fried, and the flour will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  18. Remove the potato logs from the freezer and use a strong knife to chop these into equal lengths.
  19. Working with one portion at a time, dredge the croquette in the flour.
  20. Roll the potato in the egg to wet all of the flour.
  21. And then into the crumb to get a good solid coating all over.
  22. Transfer this this to one of the platters and continue with the remaining croquettes.
  23. To fry the croquettes, half fill a wok with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f.
  24. Carefully add the croquettes to the oil and fry them for 3 to 4 minutes. Give them a gentle stir every minute to ensure even browning. You can also par-fry for 60 seconds to set the coating, remove from the oil, cool and refreeze for super-quick croquettes in the future.
  25. Use a slotted spoon to remove the crispy croquettes from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  26. Serve the croquettes piping hot as an accompaniment to your main course.

How to Make Bolillos - Mexican Baguettes
Author: 
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Mexican
Serves: 10
 
Bolillos are Mexico's version of the French baguette. With the trademark thin and crispy crust, these little rolls are every bit as good. Despite the long rising times, the recipe is really easy, and certainly worth the effort.
Ingredients
Ingredients for the starter:
  • ¾ Cup water
  • ½ Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
Ingredients for the Dough:
  • 3 Cups all-purpose flour
  • 1.5 Tsp Active dry yeast
  • 2 Tsp Salt
  • 60ml Melted butter
  • 240ml Warm water
Instructions
  1. This recipe does require a starter, sometimes called a preferment or poolish. To make the starter, place a cup of all-purpose flour in your mixer bowl.
  2. Add a half teaspoon of active dry yeast followed by 180ml of water.
  3. Place the bowl on your mixer with the beater paddle fitted.
  4. Mix this on medium low speed until totally combined. This will take 30 to 60 seconds.
  5. Remove the bowl from the machine, cover with cling-wrap and allow this to stand overnight.
  6. The following day the skurry will be bubbly and active.
  7. Add a further 3 cups of all-purpose flour, 2 teaspoons salt, 1 and a half teaspoons active dry yeast, 60ml of melted butter and 240ml of warm water.
  8. Place the bowl on your mixer with the dough hook attached.
  9. Start the mixer on slow for the first minute then increase the kneading speed to medium slow and allow this to knead for 7 minutes.
  10. Once kneading is complete, cover the bowl with clingwrap and allow the dough to rise in a warm place for 2 to 3 hours until doubled in size.
  11. After the first rise, you will have a lovely soft dough that is only slightly sticky.
  12. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface.
  13. Weigh the dough and divide this into 10 equal potions.
  14. Roll each portion into a round by placing it in the palm of your hand. Cup the fingers of your other hand over the portion and using a circular motion, form the roll.
  15. Cover the dough balls with cling-wrap and allow these to rest for 15 minutes. This allows the gluten to relax in preparation for the next step.
  16. Working with one ball at a time, flatten the ball into an oval shape.
  17. Fold the top third of the dough downwards and press to seal.
  18. Fold the bottom edge of the dough up and over this. Press this to seal the edge.
  19. Hold your hands at angles to the edges and roll the dough to form the bolillo.
  20. Transfer this to a lightly floured baking sheet and continue forming the remaining rolls.
  21. Cover the rolls with cling-wrap and allow them to rise for a further 60 to 90 minutes in a warm place, until doubled in size.
  22. minutes before the second rise is completed, preheat your oven to 230c or 450f. Place a small roasting pan in the bottom of your oven at this time.
  23. When the oven is up to temperature, use a razor sharp thin blade to slash the rolls along the length.
  24. Open the oven, pour a cup of cold water into the roasting tin, and place the rolls in the center of the oven.
  25. Bake the rolls for 20 to 25 minutes until golden.
  26. Remove the rolls from the oven and transfer them to a rack to cool.
  27. And there we have it.... a batch of beautifully crispy and aromatic bolillos.

How to Make Pouring Cream from Milk
Author: 
Recipe type: Dairy / Dessert
 
Today we're going to look at a very neat trick that you can use to make pouring cream from milk. In reality nothing can replace real cream, however if you're bulk catering, this recipe can be a real lifesaver. In addition, only real connoisseurs will tell the difference between this and real cream.
Ingredients
  • 75g Butter, melted
  • 175ml Full cream milk
  • ⅛ - ¼ Tsp Xanthan gum
  • Caster sugar (to taste if desired)
Instructions
  1. To start, melt 75g of butter inyour microwave. Run the microwave until it is just melted, that means barely above room temperature, or mildly warm.
  2. Heat 175ml of full cream milk to around the same temperature of the butter.
  3. In addition, you will need xanthan gum. For this combined quantity of liquid, 250ml, you will need 1 eighth of a teaspoon for thin cream, or a quarter teaspoon for a thicker pouring cream.
  4. Pour the milk into a tall jug, followed by the melted butter.
  5. Add 1 eighth of teaspoon of xanthan gum to the jug.
  6. Use your stick blender to shear the xanthan gum into the liquid. You will see the liquid noticeably thicken to the consistency of thin cream.
  7. And here it is....
  8. To demonstrate the thicker version, I have poured the thin cream back into the tall jug.
  9. Add another 1 eighth of a teaspoon of xanthan gum to the liquid.
  10. Once again, use your stick blender to shear the xanthan gum into the liquid. Now you have a thicker version of the same cream. If you need to use the cream immediately, you can purge the bubbles by pouring the cream through a fine sieve.
  11. You can go even further with the thickening process, but not past a maximum of 2% xanthan gum per volume of liquid. Beyond this level, the liquid will become slimy and will not emulate cream at all.
  12. That's it for today, thanks for watching.... please subscribe, like and share, and we'll see you again tomorrow.

The final publication will be in hard cover with full color photography. You can check out the website by clicking the link below in the description.
One of the recipes in the book is how to make cultured buttermilk, and other than the overnight wait, it is really quick and super-easy.
All you need is a liter of full cream milk and a bottle of cultured buttermilk to use as the starter culture.
Pour a quarter cup of the cultured buttermilk into a large jug.
Pour in the milk and give this a good stir.
Put a lid on the jug or cover it with cling wrap and place this in a warm place to ferment overnight.
The following day you will have more than a liter of lovely thick, creamy buttermilk.
This will last for months covered in the refrigerator, and you can use this starter to make even more buttermilk as required.
Stay tuned for tomorrows episode when we use this buttermilk to make a batch of buttermilk rusks, South Africas traditional crispy, crunchy dunking biscuit.

How to Make Wheat Flour Tortillas - How to Make Cheesy Quesadillas - Homemade Tortillas From Scratch
Author: 
Recipe type: Tortillas
Cuisine: Mexican
 
Some time ago we made corn tortillas. Today we're going to make soft and chewy wheat flour tortillas which are the more popular version of tortillas in Northern Mexico. After making the tortillas, we're also going to make a couple of cheesy melted quesadillas.
Ingredients
For the tortillas
  • 300g All-purpose flour
  • 5ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 60g Vegetable shortening
  • 125ml Warm water
For the quesadillas
  • 6 Tortillas
  • 200g Mature cheddar / Jack cheese grated
  • ½ Red pepper
  • 1 Large pickles jalapeno pepper
Instructions
  1. To start, you will need 300g of all-purpose flour, 5ml or a teaspoon of baking powder, 2.5ml or half teaspoon of salt, 60g of vegetable fat or shortening and 125ml or a half cup of warm water.
  2. Place the flour, salt and baking powder in your food processor. Pulse this briefly to combine.
  3. Add the shortening to the bowl and machine this for about 10 seconds to cut this into the flour.
  4. Pour in the water and run the machine until the dough comes together and runs around the edge of the bowl.
  5. Tilting the machine from side while it mixes the dough helps to get a good even consistency in the dough.
  6. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and press it into a block. Wrap the dough in cling-wrap and allow it to rest on the counter for 30 minutes.
  7. After resting, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces and roll each piece into a ball.
  8. Place one of the balls on a lightly floured work surface and flatten it out into a disc of about 7 inches or 18cm.
  9. Use your rolling pin to roll these out until about 9 to 10 inches in diameter or 22 to 25cm. At this stage they will be about 1mm in thickness.
  10. Repeat this until all of the tortillas are formed.
  11. Heat a dry pan over high heat. When the pan is smoking hot drop a few of the tortillas into the pan.
  12. Toast them for 30 to 40 seconds, then flip them over and repeat.
  13. Remove these from the pan and continue with the remaining tortillas.
  14. You can keep your tortillas fresh for a few days in an airtight container or zip lock bag, or freeze them indefinitely.
  15. To make your quesadillas, dice a half a red pepper, and finely chop one large pickled jalapeño pepper.
  16. Mix these together in a bowl.
  17. Grate 200g of mature cheddar or Monterey Jack and place this in a bowl. Add the mixed peppers and mix these into the cheese.
  18. To make up the quesadillas, spread a generous dose of the filling over one side of a tortilla.
  19. Fold the open side over the filling and press it down to secure.
  20. Heat a pan over medium high heat and drop the quesadillas into the pan.
  21. Toast the quesadillas until the cheese is well melted, turning every 90 seconds.
  22. Remove the quesadillas from the pan, cut them through the center and serve immediately accompanied with sour cream for dipping.
