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.

Peppadews, and registered brand Peppadew originate in South Africa and must be undoubtedly South Africa's greatest culinary contribution this century. These piquant pickled peppers have a thousand different and delicious applications and today we're going to look at one of my favorites.... peppadew poppers. These are very similar to chilli poppers, but with a unique flavor all their own, and far less fire.
Ingredients
  • 100g Blue Cheese
  • Yogurt (approx. 45-60ml)
  • 20-30 Pickled peppadews
  • ½ Cup Finely crushed cornflakes
  • ½ Cup All-purpose flour
  • 2 Eggs
Instructions
  1. Starting with the filling, add just enough yogurt to a 100g of strong blue cheese to make a paste. The paste must be just thinned enough to be pipe-able.
  2. Use a fork to mix this until smooth.
  3. Spoon the creamy mixture into a piping bag.
  4. Use the edge of a ruler to squish the cheese down the bag, then snip about 10mm or just less the a half inch from the tip of the bag.
  5. Use the ruler again to press the mass of cheese down to the tip.
  6. For the coating, whisk 2 eggs thoroughly until all of the albumen has broken down.
  7. Combine the finely crushed cornflakes and all purpose flour.
  8. You will need to count out 20 to 30 pickled peppadews and drain the syrup from them.
  9. Use the filled piping bag to pipe the cheese mixture into each peppadew.
  10. To coat the poppers, sprinkle a layer of the cornflake mixture over a large platter. This where the coated peppadews will set, and the crumbs will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  11. Working with one popper at a time, roll the popper in the crumb mixture.
  12. Transfer this to the egg to wet all of the crumb.
  13. Then back to the crumbs to get a good solid coating all over.
  14. Transfer this to the platter to set and continue with the rest of the poppers.
  15. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  16. Half fill your wok or a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  17. Carefully drop the poppers into the oil in batches. The poppers will fry very quickly... about 45 to 60 seconds.
  18. Use slotted spoon to lift the golden poppers from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  19. Continue frying the remaining poppers.
  20. Serve the poppers piping hot and enjoy....

How to Dry Apple Slices in your Oven - Make Dried Fruit at Home
Author: 
Recipe type: Fruit / Preserves
 
Desiccating fruit is a great way of preservation, and this works very well with apples. This process can be done very easily at home without any additives like sulphur dioxide.
Ingredients
  • 2-3 Large apples
  • 1 Liter water
  • 125ml White vinegar
Instructions
  1. Use your corer to remove the centers and seeds.
  2. Proceed by peeling the skins from apples. Some people like to leave the skin on, but I find it a little too chewy.
  3. Slice the apples into 3mm slices. You cut them a bit thicker if you prefer, however the drying time will increase accordingly.
  4. In a jug, combine the water with the white vinegar.
  5. Place the sliced apple in a mixing bowl and pour the vinegar solution over the apple.
  6. Mix this around gently, then leave it to soak for 30 minutes. The vinegar solution will prevent the apple from oxidizing and browning while it dries.
  7. After soaking, drain the apples and spread them out on a clean dish towel.
  8. Place another towel over this and pat the slices dry.
  9. Arrange the slices on stainless steel racks. These multi level cooling racks are particularly useful for this.
  10. Place the racks in your oven set at 90c or 200f for 2 hours until dry and leathery. If you would like them on crisper side, continue drying for a further hour.
  11. After the drying time, leave the apple in the oven to cool completely with door slightly open.
  12. And there it is,beautifully dried apple slices with no added preservatives.

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.

  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.
