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 Mrs Ball's Chutney - Easy to Make Mrs Ball's Chutney Recipe
Author: 
Recipe type: Preserves and Sauces
Cuisine: South African
Serves: 5-6kg
 
Mrs HS Ball's Chutney is one of South Africa's greatest contributions to the culinary world. In SA it is a household name, and it is also exported to North America, the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This is how to make your own Mrs Balls chutney at home.
Ingredients
  • 650g Dried peaches
  • 250g Dried Apricots
  • 1 Liter + 1.25 liters Brown grape vinegar
  • 2.5kg White sugar
  • 500g Onion chopped
  • 120g Salt (Kosher, non-iodated)
  • 75ml Cayenne pepper
  • 30ml Dried chilli flakes
Instructions
  1. To start, place 650g of dried peaches and 250g of dried apricots in a large bowl.
  2. Pour a liter of brown grape vinegar over the dried fruit. Stir the fruit around briefly to separate and get everything submerged.
  3. Cover the bowl and allow this to stand for 24 hours, giving it a stir every few hours during this time.
  4. The following day the fruit will have absorbed almost all of the vinegar. Strain the fruit in a colander, and save any syrup that runs into the catch bowl.
  5. Transfer the fruit to your food processor and machine this until almost fine. The texture should resemble that of ground beef.
  6. Tip the ground fruit into a bowl, add the reserved syrup and stir this in.
  7. To continue, chop 500g of onion, measure 120g of salt, 75ml of cayenne pepper and 30ml or 2 tablespoons of dried chilli flakes.
  8. Place all of these along with the ground fruit into a large pot. I am using a digital pressure cooker without the lid.
  9. Pour in 1.25 liters of brown grape vinegar and stir until everything is well combined.
  10. Pour in 2.5kg of white sugar and stir this until the sugar has dissolved.
  11. Bring the por to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and allow this to continue cooking for about 2 hours until it has thickened to a syrup, glossy sauce. It will darken substantially during this time as well.
  12. Sterilize your bottles in your dishwasher and pour the hot chutney into the hot bottles. Put the lids on and you're done.
  13. Enjoy your chutney with any type of curry, with burgers, hot dogs.... in fact just about any food enjoys a splash of Mrs Balls chutney.

Pickled Gherkins - How to Make the Perfect Pickled Gherkins for Burgers and Sandwiches
Author: 
Recipe type: Preserves
Serves: 1.8kg
 
Nothing quite completes a burger like pickled gherkins. The sweet and tangy taste along with the crunchy texture seems to elevate any burger to new heights. This is how to make the perfect burger pickles...
Ingredients
  • 1.2kg Crunchy gherkins (or mini-cucumbers)
  • 45ml (3Tbs) Kosher salt
  • 1 Liter white vinegar
  • 110g White sugar
  • 15ml (1Tbs) Coriander seed
  • 15ml (1Tbs) Hot mustard seed
  • 45ml (3Tbs) Black peppercorns
  • 2 Bay leaves
Instructions
  1. To start, top and tail 1200g of gherkins.
  2. Zap the gherkins through the thinnest slicing disc of your food processor.
  3. Place the sliced gherkin in a large non-reactive bowl and pour in 45ml of salt, a little at a time, mixing it in between applications.
  4. Put this aside and allow it to stand for 60 minutes.
  5. While the pickles stand, place 110g of sugar, 15ml of coriander seeds, 15ml of mustard seeds, 45ml of black peppercorns, 2 bay leaves and a liter or white vinegar on a medium size pot.
  6. Bring the mixture to a boil, lower the heat to simmer, and allow this to continue for 30 minutes.
  7. After this time, strain the mixture through a sieve and put this aside.
  8. Back to the gherkins. Drain the water that has drawn from the gherkins and pour in a liter of fresh water. Mix the gherkins around in the water to rinse.
  9. Half fill a large baking tray with hot water and stand your bottles in the tray. The hot water will eliminate the risk of shocking the glass jars when the hot vinegar is poured in.
  10. Fill the jars to just below the brim with the sliced gherkins.
  11. Pour in enough of the vinegar solution to cover the gherkins.
  12. Close the jars and allow them to cool in the hot roasting pan.
  13. The pickles will last indefinitely stored in a cool cupboard, however they should be refrigerated after opening.

Basil pesto is one of the classics, and it really can be used to enhance and flavor a myriad of dishes. It is super simple and quick to make, but bare in mind that to experience the real deal, you must use pine nuts. Any other substitute will result in a poor imitation.

  4. Add the remaining oil and mix this in.
  5. Add the finely shredded Parmesan cheese and mix this in thoroughly. Season the pesto with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Use a bottling funnel to transfer the pesto to a sterilized jar and refrigerate until required.

How to Make Long Eggs - Long Cylindrical Eggs Made Easy!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast / Salads
 
Long eggs allow you to slice uniform cooked egg slices to dress salads, garnish breakfast, and simply confuse your guests. After visiting a long egg factory, I decided to see whether it was possible, and practical to make these at home without all the fancy equipment.
Ingredients
  • 4 x Large eggs
Equipment Required
  • 1 x Elastic band (long, or more joined)
  • 1 x 100ml Measuring cylinder
  • 1 x 250ml Hi-ball tumbler
  • 1 x Digital pot or pot on induction range
Instructions
  1. To start, separate the egg yolks from the whites and whisk both thoroughly.
  2. Loop the elastic over one handle of your pot, stretch it across the pot and loop it over the other handle.
  3. Place the high-ball tumbler in the center of the pot.
  4. Invert the measuring cylinder and position this in the center of the tumbler.
  5. Lift the elastic band and position this across the center of the measuring cylinder. This will prevent the the tumbler and cylinder from floating when the pot is filled with water.
  6. Pour the egg white into the space between the cylinder and the tumbler.
  7. Fill the pot with hot water until the water level is about a half inch above the level of the egg white.
  8. When I say hot water, the water must be around 60c or 120f. If it is too hot, the tumbler could crack. This heat also prepares the tumbler for the heat to come.
  9. Set the temperature of your pot or induction cooker to 85c.
  10. Place a thermometer into the pot to monitor the temperature. When the temp hits 80c,start your timer. 30 minutes after this point, the egg white will be sufficiently set.
  11. Remove the elastic band. Carefully remove the measuring cylinder from the egg white leaving the set egg white with a gaping tunnel all the way through it.
  12. It helps the jiggle the cylinder back and forth to allow a little air down the side of the cylinder to break the vacuum below.
  13. Place a funnel into the center of the egg white and pour in the egg yolk until it is level with the top of the white.
  14. By this stage the temperature of the water will be at your target of 85c.
  15. Allow this to cook for a further 35 to 40 minutes.
  16. Towards the end of this time, you can test the egg yellow with a skewer. When it comes out of the yellow dry, the yolk has set properly.
  17. Remove the tumbler from the water.
  18. Using the handle of a dessert spoon press the handle carefully down the side of the egg. Work your way all the way around the edge of the egg.
  19. This will allow air into the glass and the egg will slide out much easier.
  20. All that remains is to slice your cylinder egg slices....

How to Make Potato Crisps - Best Recipe Homemade Potato Crisps - Super Crispy, Super Tasty!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Potatoes
 
Potato crisps are a tote favorite across the globe. Today we're going to look at how to make low carb potato crisps that are super crispy and super tasty.
Ingredients
For the Flavor Powder
  • 30ml Dried mixed herbs (Italian or Herbs Provence)
  • 2.5ml Garlic powder
  • 2.5ml White pepper
  • 5ml Salt
For the Crisps
  • 2-4 Large potatoes
  • 3 Liters water
  • 60ml White vinegar
  • 30ml Salt
Instructions
  1. Place the mixed herbs, garlic powder, fine ground white pepper and salt in your spice grinder. The fine powders help the grinder grind the herbs to powder by adding extra resistance in the chamber.
  2. Transfer the fine blend to a sprinkle bottle.
  3. To cut the potatoes in thin slices, you can use a regular potato peeler, however these slices are too thin and will over-brown before crisping.
  4. Better than the regular is the ceramic peeler which will give you slightly thicker slices. The problem with this is that if you go even slightly skew, the wafers will be horribly uneven, resulting in burnt edges.
  5. The best way to achieve perfect slices is with a very sharp thin blade knife. Cut the slices to 1mm thickness.
  6. Transfer the sliced potato to a mixing bowl and pour in 3 liters of water.
  7. Add the salt and white vinegar and mix this around yo separate all of the potato wafers.
  8. You will immediately see the vinegar liberating the starch from the potato.
  9. Allow this to soak for 30 minutes.
  10. Drain and rinse the potatoes and lay them out flat on a clean dish towel.
  11. Place another towel over these and pat them dry.
  12. Half fill a large pan or wok with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  13. Carefully drop the wafers in to the oil. As the crisps fry you will notice that the violent frying as the water content is driven from the potato becomes more and more gentle.
  14. Within a couple of minutes the crisps will be causing no frying reaction at all, and they will be crisp and golden.
  15. Remove the crisps from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  16. Continue with any remaining potato wafers.
  17. As the crisps cool they will crisp up even more.
  18. Transfer them to a large roasting tin. Sprinkle the flavoring powder over the crisps and toss them around gently to coat.
  19. Sprinkle again to cover any blind spots, toss again, then serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.
  20. And the we have it.... a mountain of awesomely crisp, golden, low carb potato crisps ready to be snacked.

Deep Fried Mash Potato Croquettes - Super-Crisp on the Outside, Soft & Creamy on the Inside!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Potato
Serves: 24
 
Yesterday we looked at delicious oven baked mash potato. Today we're going to make crispy deep-fried mashed potato croquettes. This recipe can be made equally successfully with instant mash or real homemade mash.
Ingredients
  • 500g Cooked and mashed potato (or instant)
  • 100g Diced pepperoni or salami
  • 250ml All-purpose flour
  • 6 Eggs, beaten
  • 500ml Fine breadcrumbs
  • Oil fry deep-frying
Instructions
  1. Mix the diced pepperoni into the potato. You can experiment with all sorts of alternatives here.... flaked fish, smoked chicken, or really anything you fancy.
  2. Cover the mash and allow it to cool to room temperature.
  3. Place 2 x 12 hole silicon mini muffin pans on a baking sheet.
  4. Fill the holes with potato mixture.
  5. Transfer the muffin trays to your freezer until the potato pucks are frozen solid.
  6. To coat the croquettes, pop a potato puck from the mold.
  7. Dip it in the egg.
  8. Dredge it in the flour to coat, then back into the egg to wet all of the flour.
  9. Dredge the potato in the breadcrumbs to get a good solid coating, then transfer it to large platter that has been sprinkled with breadcrumbs. The layer of breadcrumbs prevents the croquette from sticking to the plate which would result in damaged coating.
  10. Continue this process until all of the croquettes are coated. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  11. Half fill a large pan or wok with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  12. Carefully drop the croquettes into the oil in batches and fry each batch for 4 to 5 minutes until super-crisp and golden.
  13. Remove the croquettes from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
  14. And there it is.... a whole load of amazingly crispy, golden and tasty deep-fried potato croquettes.

How to Make Sherry Pearls - Simple Molecular Gastronomy - Sherry Caviar
Author: 
Recipe type: Modernist Cuisine - Molecular Gastronomy
 
Just a few episodes back we used agar agar to make a wonderful garnish of cilantro spaghetti. Today we're going to use sherry and agar agar to make sherry pearls, or sherry caviar. Before we start, you will need a large syringe, and you will also need to place about 500ml of cooking oil in your freezer for 30 minutes to get well chilled. This technique also falls into the category of molecular gastronomy, and is the simplest form of spherification.
Ingredients
  • 200ml Sherry
  • 2.5ml Agar Agar
  • 500ml Very cold oil for setting
Instructions
  1. Pour 200ml of your favorite sherry into a small saucepan.
  2. Add 2.5ml of agar agar to the sherry.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat and bring this to boil, stirring frequently.
  4. Lower the heat and simmer the mixture for 60 seconds.
  5. Remove the pot from the heat, and remove the chilled oil from the freezer.
  6. Use your syringe to suck up a load of the sherry mixture.
  7. Drizzle droplets of the sherry over the surface of the oil. You will see them set into tiny spheres almost immediately.
  8. Place a filter over a jug and pour the oil and sherry pearls into the filter.
  9. The oil will pass through leaving the pearls in the filter and you're done.
  10. (You can rinse the pearls briefly using cold water, but I have never found this necessary)

Cilantro Pesto Spaghetti - Simple Molecular Gastronomy - Perfect Garnishes using Agar Agar!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Molecular Gastronomy
 
This molded spaghetti works brilliantly as garnish on steaks, chicken and salads. The process falls into the category of molecular gastronomy, however it is nowhere as complicated as it sounds. This process will work with any liquid, including liqueurs, wines, vinegars and syrups, provided you keep to the ratio of 200ml liquid to 2.5ml agar agar. Agar agar is a specialized thickener, and can be found at almost any health store.
Ingredients
  • 100ml Clear chicken stock
  • 70ml Mayonnaise
  • 30ml Worcestershire sauce
  • 2.5ml Cayenne pepper
  • Generous handful fresh cilantro / coriander
  • 2.5ml Agar Agar
Instructions
  1. Combine the chicken or vegetable stock, mayonnaise, Worcestershire sauce, agar agar, cayenne pepper and cilantro.
  2. Use your stick blender to zap this until fine.
  3. Transfer this to a small saucepan and bring it to a simmer for 60 seconds.
  4. Take a length of polyethylene piping and coil it up.
  5. Fill another container with very cold water.
  6. Place one end of the coiled pipe in the pesto and suck the pesto up the pipe. You can use your mouth or a suitably sized syringe to do this.
  7. Stop when you have sucked up half of the liquid.
  8. Plunge the coil into the cold water bath for 3 minutes, holding the ends out of the water.
  9. Remove the pipe from the water.
  10. Serve your main ingredient, be it steak or otherwise and spoon some of the leftover pesto over the steak.
  11. Hold one end of the pipe over the platter and start blowing on the other end.
  12. As the pesto spaghetti emerges from the pipe, direct the front end of the pipe to place the spaghetti where you want it.
  13. Finish the garnish with a little extra cilantro and you're done.
  14. And there we have a succulent steak topped with 3 totally different textures of cilantro pesto. This quantity of pesto will garnish 2 steaks.

  1. Combine the Worcestershire sauce, light soy sauce, maple syrup, cider vinegar, chilli powder and smoked paprika in a jug and stir this until well combined.
  2. You will need large brown mushrooms, or porcini mushrooms as the have a well defined, robust flavor.
  3. Cut the mushrooms into slices 12mm or a half inch thick.
  4. Place the mushroom slices in a large non-reactive pan and pour the marinade mixture over the mushrooms.
  5. Use a basting brush to pick up marinade from the pan and brush this over any spots you may have missed.
  6. Cover the pan with cling-wrap and place this in your refrigerator overnight.
  7. The following day, transfer the mushroom slices to a rack in another pan.
  8. Set the temperature of your oven to 50c or 122f and place the tray in the oven.
  9. Leave the oven door slightly open.
  10. It will take around 10 hours for the mushrooms to dry. You want to be pliable and chewy, not bone dry.
  11. And there we have it, a tasty, chewy wonderful batch of mushroom jerky.
