From a French children's book I just bought. Saw this, went in the kitchen and made it immediately, it took about 5 minutes. My French husband says it is better than Nutella. It is grittier, because I couldn't figure out how it to get it really smooth, but it tastes great. Makes enough to exactly fill one French Bonne Maman jam jar.
I've noticed that Paul Kirk, the "Baron of Barbecue", always bastes his meats with a mustard sauce before putting them in the smoker. He claims this is the most important step you can do in barbecuing, as it seals and moistens the meat. The vinegars in it interact with the enzymes of the meat and it enhances the flavor of the meat without actually giving it a mustard taste. It also acts as a glue for the dry rub. I really noticed an improvement after I started using it. This a mustard sauce I put together that you can use on ribs, pork butt, brisket and chicken.
Ok! here is my secret recipe for shrimp sauce. I have had many request for it. This recipe is not only good for shrimp or other seafoods but is also good for most anything your heart desires. Some examples are... fried rice,a salad dressing for salads,egg rolls, raw vegetables and just plain old chips. Keep chilled up to 2weeks, best flavor is the next day after making.
My family loves it on everything. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do!
I make this jam when freestone peaches are available because the entire jam making process is much easier and quicker when the stone slides out of the fruit when you halve the fruit. Heat a large pot of boiling water and dip your whole peaches in them for a quick peeling method. 8 cups of peaches is around 11 large peaches. Chop the fruit about the size of a pair of dice. This is absoulutely the best peach jam I have ever made.
Here is a great idea for all you garlic lovers that use a lot of garlic in your recipes, with this method you will always have minced garlic when ever you need it, no need to start peeling and chopping cloves for a recipe it's already done and ready for use, in your freezer --- I usually do 30 large heads of garlic at a time so I have enough garlic for a couple of months --- to defrost just pop a frozen garlic cube in the microwave for about 15-20 seconds --- save your plastic trays to use just for the garlic as they will absorb the garlic smell :)
While visiting Los Angeles, I found this recipe on a card that you can pick up at the local grocers. This particular combination of meat and fruit had me intrigued so I brought it back for use at some later point. Filet mignon is pricey so this is certainly a special occasion food. Planning to serve it with roasted potatoes and maybe some nice asparagus.
This recipe is by one of the highest rated restaurants in New York City. It is used neat and also as a component of many of their other recipes. It's an extra-ordinary recipe that uses ordinary ingredients. It's very easy, but it does take time. You may think it's a bit of work, but I think it's worth it and have used it in dozens of ways (it's great on or in most anything). A wonderful basic that you may use as you need it. Keeps in the fridge several days and it freezes well, so you'll always be able to keep some on hand.
