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.

Roasted Buttermilk Pork Shoulder - Exquisitely Tender & Juicy Roast Pork
Author: 
Recipe type: Pork
 
Pork shoulder is one of the most under-rated cuts of meat, and it is mostly used for sausage making, and cured cold cuts. When roasted, it does have a tendency to dry out and toughen, however this simple procedure will give you a succulent, tender and amazingly juicy roast, comparable to roasts made with far more expensive cuts of meat.
Ingredients
  • 2kg Pork shoulder, skin and fat on
  • 5 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Tsp White pepper
  • 2 Tsp Garlic powder
  • 3 Tsp Onion flakes
  • 2 Tsp Hot smoked paprika
  • 2 Tsp paprika
  • 2 Tsp Cayenne pepper
  • 2 Tsp Dried thyme
  • 2 Tsp Dried oregano
  • 1 Tsp Basil
Instructions
  1. Starting with 2kg of pork shoulder with the fat cap and skin still intact, we want to score the skin.
  2. Use a razor sharp knife to slice through the skin and the fat. Make your scores about 20mm apart.
  3. Swing the meat around and score across the first lot of cuts to create the lattice pattern.
  4. Fold the top of a large vacuum packing bag inside out. This keeps the sealing edge clean, and helps to keep the bag open.
  5. Drop the pork shoulder into the bag, and pour 500ml of cultured buttermilk into the bag.
  6. Fold the bag opening back and vacuum pack the contents making sure to double seal the top. Notice that I have elevated the vacuum packer. This inhibits the flow of the liquid upwards allowing air to get sucked out first. As soon as you see the liquid rising, hit the stop button, followed by the seal button. Follow this with the second seal.
  7. Rub the bag down to make sure the buttermilk is evenly distributed, then transfer this to your refrigerator for a full 24 hours.
  8. The following day, remove the pork from the bag and place it on a rack in a large roasting pan. Pour the buttermilk into a jug.
  9. Add 5 teaspoons salt, 2 teaspoons white pepper, 2 teaspoons garlic powder, 3 teaspoons onion flakes, 2 teaspoons hot smoked paprika, 2 teaspoons regular paprika, 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper, 2 teaspoon dried thyme, 2 teaspoons dried oregano and 1 teaspoon dried basil.
  10. Stir this all until well combined.
  11. Spoon half of this mixture over the pork. Notice that the pork is skin side down.
  12. Turn the pork over and spoon the remaining liquid over the skin and sides of the shoulder.
  13. Roast the pork in a preheated oven at 180c or 350f for 90 minutes undisturbed. Remove the pan from the oven, cover carefully with foil and allow this to stand for 15 minutes before carving.
  14. There are 2 ways to carve this roast. The first is from the skin side following the score lines in the skin. This will give you nice thick, juicy slices.
  15. Alternatively, flip the meat over and slice it thinly from the meat side. This will give you a more traditional carved roast with little bits of the crispy crackling edging each piece.
  16. Thats it for today, thanks for watching... please subscribe, like and share, and we'll see you again tomorrow.

Today we're going to make the most amazing dip I have ever tasted. This bacon, mushroom and chive dip works equally well as a spread, as a filling for baked potatoes and even as a topping over steaks.
Ingredients
  • 400g White mushrooms (you can also use Portabellini or Porcini)

  • 30g + 30g Butter
  • 250ml Cultured sour cream
  • 250g Cream cheese (Chive flavored)

  • Crostini to serve
Instructions
  1. Chop the mushrooms into thin slices and put these aside.
  2. Cut the streaky bacon across the grain into thin slices. Try to use properly smoked bacon as this adds a tremendous depth to the flavor of the dip.
  3. Heat a large pan over medium high heat and add the bacon.
  4. Stirfry the bacon for 5 to 6 minutes until it starts to caramelize on the edges.
  5. Add the mushrooms along with 30g of butter. Continue to stirfry this for 2 minutes.
  6. Add a further 30g of butter. Continue to stirfry the mixture until deep golden and caramelized. This will take 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Transfer the bacon mushroom mixture to a tall jug.
  8. Add the sour cream and chive flavored cream cheese to the jug. If you cannot find flavored cream cheese, simply add 30ml of finely chopped fresh chives to the mixture.
  9. Use your stick blender to zap this all until fine.
  10. To serve, slice a few French rolls into slices and toast them lightly under the grill in your oven until lightly golden.
  11. Arrange the slices around a platter accompanied with the best dip ever.

  6. As the mixture comes to the correct temperature, remove the pot from the heat and carefully lower it into the pan of water.
  7. Add the bicarbonate of soda and whisk this into the mixture.

  11. Once the mixture has set solid, turn it out from the pan.
  12. Use your meat mallet and a butter knife as a chisel to fracture the honeycomb into bite sized pieces.
  13. And there it is.... a beautifully finely texture honeycomb to add a little sweetness to the beginning of your new year.

With Thanksgiving literally just days away, here is a quick and easy turkey drumstick roulade that is suitable for smaller or larger crowds of guests. Each roulade will cater for 2 to 3 people and this recipe is for 2 drumsticks. Simply multiply the recipe out if you have more guests.
Ingredients
  • 2 x 1kg Turkey drumsticks
  • 60g Butter, melted
  • Salt and cracked black pepper
For the Stuffing

  • 2.5ml Dried sage
  • 100g Fermented, aged salami
For the Glaze
  • 60ml Honey
  • 10ml White wine vinegar
Instructions
  1. To start you need to debone the drumsticks and remove all the nasty tendons.
  2. Cut through the skin around the narrow end of the drumstick.
  3. Use a sharp scissors to cut through all the tendons underneath the skin.
  4. Locate the inside of the leg and slice through the flesh along the length of the drumstick.
  5. You will find one thick tendon running along the bone. Cut away the connective tissue to free the tendon.
  6. Use your scissors to cut down either side of the bone so that the flesh lies flat.
  7. Use the edge of your paring knife blade to scrape the flesh down the bone towards the joint.
  8. Use your scissors to cut around the joint to free the bone.
  9. Use your fingers to feel for the tendons in the meat.
  10. Lift each tendon and cut them free with your scissors.
  11. On the fat side of the drumstick, there are a number of tendons enclosed in the muscle. Cut the connecting tissue to separate the muscle and expose the tendons.
  12. Lift these up and trim them away and you're done.
  13. Continue with the other drumstick.
  14. For the stuffing, place the dried cranberries in a small bowl and pour in enough champagne to cover. Allow these to stand while you continue with the other filling ingredients.
  15. Slice 2 canned pineapple rounds into 8 wedges each.
  16. Measure out the dried brioche cubes, the dried sage and the salami.
  17. Place all of these in a mixing bowl and pour in the cranberries and champagne. Mix this together thoroughly, then let it stand for 30 minutes.
  18. Place one of the deboned drumsticks on your work surface.
  19. Spread half of the filling across the center of the meat and press it down firmly.
  20. Grind a liberal dose of salt and cracked black pepper over the whole lot.
  21. Lift the edges of the meat and roll them over the filling to meet in the center.
  22. Tie a single loop of twine around the center of the roulade to secure it.
  23. Tie a slip knot in the remaining twine and loop it around the narrow end. Pull it tight to secure this end.
  24. Run the twine up the length and use half hitch loops to secure the rest of the roulade.
  25. Loop the twine around the fat end, run it up the back of the drumstick and tie it to the beginning twine.
  26. Put this aside and continue with the remaining drumstick.
  27. Roughly chop an onion and scatter the pieces across the bottom of a medium size roasting tin.
  28. Place the 2 roulades on top of the onion.
  29. Brush the turkey liberally with the melted butter and give it another liberal grind of salt and cracked black pepper.
  30. Roast this in a preheated oven at 170c or 340f for 60 minutes.
  31. Remove the pan from the oven, turn the roulades over and give this side a good grind of salt and cracked black pepper.
  32. Return the pan to the oven for another 45 minutes.
  33. Remove the roulades from the oven and brush them liberally with the honey vinegar mixture.
  34. Allow this to stand for 5 minutes for the meat to relax.
  35. Pour all of the pan juices, including any solids that may have escaped from the roulades, into a tall jug.
  36. Use your stick blender to machine this to a smooth gravy.
  37. Cut away the twine from the roulades and slice them into 6mm slices. The meat is extremely tender and juicy, and it will not be possible to slice thinner than this.
  38. Serve immediately with a generous dose of the gravy, and the accompaniments of your choice.

Deep Fried Mash Potato Croquettes - Super-Crisp on the Outside, Soft & Creamy on the Inside!!!

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.

  4. Cut the salami into small cubes, measure out the butter and crack 2 eggs.
  5. You will also need salt and pepper to season.
  6. Once the potatoes are tender, drain the water and transfer the potatoes to your food processor. Add all of the other ingredients as well, and season liberally with salt and pepper.

  8. Transfer the mash to piping bag fitted with a large star nozzle.
  9. Place a cylinder mold on a baking sheet and sprinkle fine breadcrumbs into mold until the base in the cylinder is covered.
  10. Pipe the mash into the cylinder until it is half filled, about an inch thick.
  11. Sprinkle more breadcrumbs over the top, this time more sparingly so as not to hide the piping pattern.

Hi and welcome to part 6 of our series on smoking and curing foods. With Canadian Thanksgiving on Monday and in just over a month in the US, today's episode covers curing a smoking a delicious Thanksgiving turkey.
Ingredients
  • 1 x 5-6lb Turkey (2.5kg - 2.8kg)
For the Curing Brine
  • 5lt Water
  • 15g Saltpetre
  • 100g Sugar
  • 200g Salt
  • 30ml Black peppercorns
  • 30ml Whole allspice
  • 10ml Ground ginger
  • 25ml Bicarbonate of soda
For the Basting / Mop
  • 100ml Honey
  • 40ml Lemon Juice
  • Zest of 1 lemon
  • 10ml Lemon pepper
  • 15ml Garlic powder
  • 5ml Cayenne pepper
  • Smoked salt
Instructions
  1. For the curing brine combine the saltpetre, sugar, salt, black peppercorns, whole allspice, ginger and bicarbonate of soda and pour these into a pot along with 5 liters of water.
  2. Bring the pot to a boil, reduce the heat and allow this to simmer for 30 minutes. Quick chill the pot by floating it in cold water in your sink.
  3. To prepare the turkey, trim away any excess skin and fat from the neck and butt. Removing the tail is a matter of personal preference.
  4. Use a sharp knife to cut through the skin and flesh along the breast bone. Cut through the breast bone with your kitchen shears.
  5. Open up the bird, flip it over and dislocate the pelvis with a sharp downward thrust. This allows the bird to lie flat. Removing the wing tips is also a matter of personal preference, however I do recommend this.
  6. Transfer the turkey skin side up to a large food-safe non-reactive container. Pour the cooled brine into the container.
  7. Place a weight on top of the turkey to keep it fully submerged in the solution.
  8. Place the container in your refrigerator and allow it to cure for 48 hours.
  9. After curing, you will need to make the basting. Combine the lemon juice and honey. Take the lemon pepper, garlic powder, cayenne pepper and lemon zest and add these to the honey and lemon juice. Mix these until totally combined.
  10. You will also need smoked salt to grind over the turkey once it has been basted.
  11. Remove the turkey from the curing brine and pat both sides dry using kitchen paper.
  12. Brush the underside liberally with the basting, flip the bird over and repeat this with skin side, before giving the skin a generous grind of smoked salt.
  13. Place a rack at an angle across a pan and transfer the turkey to the rack.
  14. Get your smoker running and heat the barbecue to 250f or 135c. I am using the Smoke Daddy cold smoke generator which allows for perfect cold or hot smoking in any closed barbecue. If you are using another brand of smoker, follow the manufacturer's instructions.
  15. Place the turkey in the barbecue and allow this to smoke for 40 minutes per pound. For my turkey weighing in at about 5 pounds this will take 3 hours 20 minutes. Baste the bird every half hour with melted butter to prevent the skin from drying out.
  16. Towards the end point, check the internal temperature with a probe thermometer. When the internal temperature reaches 170f or 77c in the thichest part of the meat, the turkey is ready to serve.
  17. And there you have it, a beautifully fragrant, tasty and succulently tender smoked turkey flavored with garlic, lemon and a hint of chilli.
