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.

 

Microwave Potato Crisps – How to Make Salt & Vinegar Potato Crisps in Your Microwave Oven!!!

Today we're going to look at a neat trick to make salt and vinegar potato crisps in your microwave. Not only do these potato crisps have less oil content then regular crisps, but they are crispier, tastier, and a fraction of the price. You can find the printable recipe on our website http://Whats4Chow.com --- or below in this description! This is episode #774 with Whats4Chow - please subscribe for notifications and updates. Ingredients 2-3 Large potatoes 30ml Kosher salt 500ml Cheap white vinegar 500ml Water A little oil for brushing Instructions To start, use a razor-sharp knife to slice these into wafers of 1mm thickness. Using long smooth cutting strokes will result in more even slices. Pour a half liter of water and a half liter of cheap white vinegar into a large mixing bowl. Add 15ml or a tablespoon of non-iodated salt and stir this until dissolved. Add the potato slices to the salt and vinegar solution and mix them up a little to separate. Allow this to stand for 30 minutes. The salt and vinegar draws and neutralizes the starch from the potatoes, while simultaneously flavoring the slices. After 30 minutes remove the slices from the solution and arrange them over half of a clean dish towel. Fold the open half over the slices and pat them dry. Repeat this until all of the slices are dried. Place a square of baking parchment on a plate and arrange some of the slices over the parchment. Brush the slices lightly with oil, turn them over and brush the reverse sides as well. Microwave the slices on high setting. My microwave is 900 watts, and I zap my crisps for 7 minutes, turning halfway through. If your microwave is more or less powerful than this adjust the cooking time up or down accordingly. Continue microwaving batches until all of the crisps are done. The crisps will keep crispy for up to a week in an air-tight container. And there we have it, a mountain of crisps, from just 2 potatoes.

Preserved lemons are widely used in Middle Eastern cuisine to add a unique flavor and tang to curries and tagines. The process of making your own preserved lemon is quick and easy, however you will have to wait for a month to pickle before using them. This is how to do it....
Ingredients
  • 850g Lemons
  • 55g / 60ml Coarse Kosher salt / Himalayan rock salt
  • 250ml Lemon juice
  • 250ml Lime juice
  • Extra water to top up
Instructions
  1. To start, you will need 250ml of lemon juice and 250ml of lime juice, 55g or quarter cup of coarse kosher salt, or Himalayan rock salt, and 850g of lemons.
  2. Cut down through each lemon twice, leaving just about 5mm uncut at the base.
  3. Open a lemon up and drop a proportionate amount of salt into the lemon. In other words, if you have 6 lemons, drop one sixth of the coarse salt into the lemon.
  4. Continue until all of the lemons are filled.
  5. Transfer the lemons to a sterilized 1.5 liter preserve jar. Pack them tightly.
  6. Pour in the lemon and lime juices and top the jar up with filtered water until the lemons are covered.
  7. Close the lid, and you're finished. Place the jar in a cool dark cupboard for a full month before using.
  8. Stay tuned, as in a month when these are ready to use, we will be doing a couple of Moroccan curries and tagines using these preserved lemons.

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

  • 2.5kg White sugar
  • 500g Onion chopped
  • 120g Salt (Kosher, non-iodated)

  • 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.

Batch Processing French Fries - Homemade Par-Fried French Fries to Save Time & Money!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Accompaniments
Serves: 1200g
 
On the odd occasion when you have a little spare time, it's a good idea to do a bit of bulk processing that will save you a ton of time later. Bulk processing French fries is really simple, and can save a load of money when compared to bought frozen pre-cut fries.
Ingredients
  • 1200g Potatoes
  • 30g Salt
  • 250ml Cheap white vinegar
  • Boiling water to cover
Instructions
  1. The first step is to peel the potatoes, followed by cutting them into fries of even thickness. You can choose any thickness you like, mine are medium, or about 8mm... if you go thinner cut down the par-frying time, and if you're going thicker, bump it up.
  2. Place the cut potatoes in a mixing bowl, add 30ml of salt and 250ml of cheap white vinegar.
  3. Pour in enough boiling water to cover the fries, give them a quick stir to separate, and allow these to stand for 30 minutes. This gives the time for the vinegar to draw out and neutralize the starch in the chips.
  4. After this time you will visibly see how cloudy the water is.
  5. Strain the fries through a large colander and rinse them thoroughly.
  6. Tip the fries out onto a large dish towel and pat them dry thoroughly.
  7. Heat a large pot or wok of oil to 180c or 350f and fry the chips in batches for 6 minutes per batch.
  8. Transfer the fries to a baking tray lined with kitchen paper and a rack. Allow them to cool for 30 minutes before transferring the pan to your freezer.
  9. After a couple of hours the fries will be frozen solid and it's time to portion them into packets and return them to the freezer.
  10. To cook the chips, fry them from frozen at 180c or 350f until crisp and golden.
  11. You can also bake them like oven chips by placing them in a single layer in a baking tray. Bake them in a preheated oven at 250c until they are crispy and golden, giving them a shake every five minutes to ensure even cooking.

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.

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....
