    The Humble Pumpkin Seed The seeds of pumpkins are often over looked when used in cooking, but they can be a delicious treat when roasted.

    Recipe #41746

    Here are two methods for roasting walnut halves or any other kind of nuts.

    Recipe #281387

    I've been roasting a lot of almonds lately. I explained to my husband that they taste much better purchased raw and roasted fresh at home (rather than purchasing them already roasted). After one batch of my roasted almonds he was sold! http://www.elanaspantry.com/how-to-roast-almonds/

    Recipe #413809

    Best stored refrigerated. Purchase already shelled almonds with their skin on which prevents the kernel from drying out and loosing its flavoursome oils. When needed de-skin (blanch) and if required split or sliver them. In the northern Indian state, Jammu and Kashmir, the almond tree is designated as the State tree. A dish called pasanda is a popular North Indian meat dish, derived from a meal served in the Court of the Moghul Emperors. Reflecting the dish's flavour and its connection with the almond, pasanda also refers to a mild curry sauce made with cream, coconut milk, and almonds in North India and Pakistan. Recipe taken from The Complete Middle East Cookbook by Tess Mallos.

    I was making a recipe that called for toaste macadamia nuts, and not knowing how to toast them, I found this "recipe" - and thought I should post it. The recipe I was making (which is delicious!) is Recipe #370077.

    Toasting pecans brings out their flavor.

    Recipe #2688

    Use your favorite sweetener: honey, unrefined cane sugar, agave, barley malt, etc. (A light drizzle-about 1/2 teaspoon of real maple syrup tasted good in this!) It is very important to be certain the sunflower seeds you use for this recipe are fresh. If not, the butter will taste "off"-rancid. To store, use a covered container and refrigerate.

    Recipe #422938

    Does running your fruit over a box grater / hand grater not work? Here is a handy post on how to zest citrus fruits using your handheld kitchen appliances since the by-hand way is so time consuming! I keep a jar of dried orange zest around but I like fresh lemon/lime zest sometimes.

    Recipe #429187

    This instruction comes from Pom to teach you how to open a pomegranate. I love pomegranates but I have always found them difficult to use!

    Recipe #353554

    I decided to try making my own pumpkin puree instead of buying the canned variety. I'm not a fan of pumpkin pie but maybe I'll like it better if it's made from scratch. I'm also going to try making pumpkin butter! Directions from: http://www.betterbudgeting.com/articles/holidays/roastpumpkin.htm and posted here so I can find them! Yield is an estimate and will depend on how big your pumpkin is. ===== You can only do this with a freshly carved pumpkin! Do not use on a pumpkin that has been carved and sitting out for several days.

    Adapted from Deborah Madison's book Vegetarian Cooking for Everyone. This is the best method for roasting garlic. It creates the smoothest roasted garlic with the best flavor. It enriches and smooths the flavor and it great in just about everything (well, except desserts). Yield depends on the size of your head of garlic. This produces surprisingly little (perhaps 2 tbs the first time I did it), so if you would like a larger quantity you may want to double or triple the recipe.

    Recipe #72402

    This is a simple "how to" recipe for roasting garlic in the oven. Super easy and the flavor of roast garlic is so sweet and creamy. Our favorite way to serve it up is to dump the roasted garlic in some good olive oil seasoned with salt/pepper, and serve it atop french bread. Certainly you can use roast garlic in many different recipes!

    Recipe #303247

    In a search for fire roasted tomatoes for my recipe for Recipe #390602, I found this homemade version. Fire roasted tomatoes add a smoky flavor to a variety of foods. They cook quickly on a gas range or charcoal grill. Much more economical than store bought; freezable, too. p.s. Using any other tomato probably will not work for they turn out mushy.

    Recipe #395189

    I had long avoided recipes that required 'skinned' tomatoes until I found this simple and quick method!

    Recipe #369899

    These gourmet treats have a hefty price tag in stores.. it's really not so hard to just make them yourselves

    Recipe #398379

    My DH spent time over the summer and this past weekend helping out the good folks at Ironwood Farm here in Albuquerque. They were harvesting and gave my DH a ton of produce to take home. Since I had a full bag of paste tomatoes and knew we'd never eat them all I decided to dry them. It took a while to do this but it was worth it as we now have a huge jar of dried tomatoes which will probably last a very long time. You can salt the tomatoes if you want and add the herbs but I left them plain.

    Recipe #325795

    Was surprised when I saw so many recipes for tomato soup calling for peeled tomatoes....but no instructions as how to peel them! If you try to peel a fresh tomato, you know it's a mess, that's why so many folks use canned tomatoes! Well, for the uninformed, here's how..............and a good-bye to canned! NOTE: for ease of printing this I am using 20 tomatoes as the guideline.

    Recipe #406973

    Why buy jar roasted peppers when you can have the flavor of fresh peppers. Roasted peppers are versatile and can be served in a variety of dishes. Try them with broiled or grilled poultry, beef or fish. Chop them and mix with garlic, tomatoes and basil, spreading over slices of toasted sourdough bread for a quick bruschetta. The possibilities are endless!

    Recipe #244091

    Freshly roasted peppers are wonderfully flavorful, and not nearly as difficult to prepare as you might imagine. :) Give it a try! Requires gas range.
