Rich:
Last night I made pizza. Dough for two thin crusts was left over. I threw them in the fridge last night. This morning I LMAO when I saw this.

Rich,

When I was a kid THAT was a political statement. Fantastic, good to see you haven't lost your sense of humor. Big Smile

I did it, I have been searching for good sausages all the 24 years here in Mexico, I have tried them all also the gringo imports. but here goes.

500 gr. coarse ground pork meat nothing fancy it has to have some grease

250 gr. coarse ground beef, also here off the shelf

250 gr  Light smoked greasy bacon

1 egg

1/2 onion

50 ml milk

10 gr. salt

4 gr. black pepper

2 gr. cayenne pepper

marjoram, or what you like.

I ran the meat and the bacon through the grinder one time with a big hole attachment, mixed it well and put it in the freezer, then put the milk, the onion and the egg in the blender, mixed well, put it in the freezer, took out the meat, added the salt and spices, more if you like spicy, less if not, and mixed well, added the milk shake from the freezer, and mixed well, until it felt more solid and the white grease looked evenly distributed, it all went back to the freezer. I then prepared my meat grinder, took out the knife and the hole attachment cleaned the rest of the grinder and put it back except for the knife and the hole attachment. Then put sausage casing, (natural hog casing, cleaned inside, (after having been in lukewarm water for an hour), with lukewarm water, on the make sausages horn, the horn then attached to the grinder, a knot on the end of the casing, and ready to go. Got the meatmix out of the freezer and stuffed it into the grinder, started the grinder on slow, and started making sausages, they came out nice and easy, just keeping the casing back on the horn until the diameter reached 3 cm and let the casing flow on steadily, when reaching about 15-20 cm, stop the grinder, squeeze the casing at the horn until only casing is between your fingers, then roll it several times in the same direction with your fingers, start the grinder again and onto the next one. Its easy when you get going. I made it all in about 1 hour, and it was my first time.

Then directly on the grill, or keep in the refrigerator for max 3 days, or the freezer for max 6 month.

Here sausages

On my handmade grill

Close up and one opened to check, 6-7 min on each side and middle heat, too much heat will dry them out.

Sylvia went gourmet and took out the good red vine, i stayed with my cuba, tasty tasty

Søren,

 

Looks remarkably delicious, but you did not say it was good. I’ll bet it was, even with a cuba. Sylvia may have had the better idea with the red wine.

 

Me, I’d go with Chardonnay, but I’ll bet Jacques would be horrified with that choice with sausages.

 

I will add that I triedan Opus One, absolutely the BEST wine I have ever had….. but I lucked out, bought it young (too early to drink) and it was reasonable. Today this wine goes for incredible prices. Nice memory none the less.

 

Hope you enjoyed your meal!

Sorry it is the best sausage I ever tasted, only natural ingredients, no cheap fillings, only meat and spices, I would classify it as seasoned beef in casing Smile . The vine is a Cabernet Sauvignon and Sylvia told me its just perfect for this kind of sausage "Thüringer" art, it is not the last time I make sausages.

Kids dont appreciate it now, but later on when they start eating on good restaurants and the like, they have a good starting point in knowing how good food must taste. In involving them in the cooking procedure they also learn that it can be fun to cook healthy or different dishes, later on in life when they go on to a campus or living by them self, they will appreciate what they learned at home. Important is to teach them the basics in cooking, baking and the importance of using fresh natural ingredients. So dont stop cooking, but give them some junk food once in a while so they experience the difference.

Today Sylvia brought me a 4-500 Gr. piece of Salmon filet, skin off, I seasoned it half an hour with lemon, salt and cayenne pepper, found a rest of fried rice, from our friendly Chinese around the corner, It has some vegs, meat and scrimps in it, also in the fridge found my spicy mango sauce. So Salmon in the frying pan for some 12 min. heat the rice and the sauce. Within 15 min. we had a gourmet meal for USD 7.00

Sunday just felt like the day for lasagna, but the family recipe handed down for a generation which was in fact a “Betty Croker” recipe circ 1960, with all that cottage cheese just didn’t cut it. Time for something new and with a LOT more kick.

 

Italian sausage and ground beef browned and removed to drain.

Mushrooms chopped and sautéed in residual meat fat.

Medium onion diced and sautéed.

Cook meat, mushrooms, and onions in one pan, add 4 cloves of minced garlic and 1 dried chipotle pepper.

Add 1 can tomato paste and 1 cup salsa.

Add Italian seasonings.

Simmer for 10 minutes.

Boil noodles for lasagna.

Mix 1 egg, ½ cup sour cream, ½ cup parmesan cheese, and 1 ½ cup shredded Italian cheeses.

Layer noodles, cheese mixture, and meat. Repeat and top with shredded Italian cheeses.

Bake for 45 minutes in a 350°F oven.

Set for 15 minutes.

 

Trust me on this guys; you will never mistake this recipe for Betty Croker. Big Smile

I can confirm that, Sylvia is our Italian specialist and cook her lasagna just like that.

Sunday I went for sausages again, this time using a sheep casing, gives a thinner sausage, 20-25 mm, the recipe was changed a little, 25% beef, 50% pork rib meat, 25% smoked fatty bacon and spices, minced the meat finer for this casing, 3 times through the grinder with 3 mm hole plate. I tried just cooking in water, gives a very juicy sausage, but the casing stays like it is, better than pork casing but even so. Then on a frying pan, better and stayes juicy. Best is on grill. But all in all, you have to try this, you cant compare these sausages to the ones you get in the super, Fantastic taste and you know what is inside. 

Next step will be a smoker oven, the casing gets perfect and like brittle (crunchy like) and with a little curing Prague salt they keeps a long time in the fridge or freezer. For now I just cook them in 70° water for 20 min. and they are good to the freezer,  but smoking them makes a better casing and you can keep them fresh longer.

Here the Sunday meal, Potato salad, cucumber salad, remoulade, mustard, ketchup and fried dry onions, Sylvia choose her vine, I choose my cuba (goes with any meal)

Apple Blossoms

 

Recipe for 6 Apple Blossoms.

2 red delicious apples, remove core and cut into slices.

In a bowl half filled with water add the juice of half lemon (no pits please!)

Place sliced apple in bowl and microwave for 3 minutes.

Drain out all water.

In a separate bowl put 3 tablespoons of apricot preserve, add 2 tablespoons of water. Microwave for 1 minute, stir vigorously.

Unwrap 1 sheet of thawed pull pastry and stretch it out with rolling pin. (We only now discovered that our rolling pin was lost in an international move 10 years ago, so substituted  the center tube from a roll of paper towels, not recommended but provided abundant hilarity for our lone dinner guest, my father-in-law.)

Cut flattened pastry into 6 strips.

Spread each strip with apricot preserve.

Place apple slices over-lapping on dough.

Sprinkle with cinnamon.

Fold dough in half and roll. The result looks exactly like a rose.

Bake in oven at 375°F for 40-45 minutes.

Enjoy!

I agree Jeff, absolutely beautiful! Worthy of something Morimoto might deliver, they're that attractive!

I need to try these next time we have a family party. Everyone would be amazed.

I'm still using the Anova sous vide cooker with great results. It excels at things like lamb chops, steaks, duck breasts, anything that needs to be done medium rare. And it tenderizes the meat well, long low cooking times help a lot. When my wife got it for me I thought it'd be a toy I seldom used but I seem to use it every week lately.

I have had the same experience, pork roast at 150°C for 4 hours (inside temp after 5 hours 65°) it came out  juicy and tender, I made the same with a duck of 1 Kg 3 hours at 150° same result , 150° is as low as my oven goes (butane gas)

Definitely. I do a pot roast, for about 4 hours at a bit above boiling, about 220 deg F, comes out so tender it's hard to get it out of the pot without it falling apart. I have a friend online who uses a sous vide like mine, he does pastrami for 48 hours at 135 deg F. I've not sous vide'd anything that long yet. He uses a large insulated cooler with a lid he also seals with plastic wrap to help cut down on the evaporation and heater use in a long cook time like that.

Same for the traditional turkey for Thanksgiving over here. I start out very hot to crisp the skin then reduce the heat a lot, makes for a crisp outside and a juicy tender inside of the bird.

Pot roast is sure an easy, tasty, comfort food meal. Throw some whole mushrooms, big carrot chunks, onions, and new potatoes in, makes for a bowl of just the most amazingly comforting food, especially if it's cold out.

I have a gas cooktop, but electric ovens (Bosch cooktop, old Gaggenau ovens). Allegedly that's the best combo, electric for the ovens and gas for the cooktop. I never used gas until 3 yrs ago when I moved to this house, but love it. Took no time to acclimate to it. For the sous vide steak, you take it out, pat it dry, and sear it for 30 sec to a minute a side in a very hot cast iron pan. My center burner is a 18,500 BTU huge thing, and i can get a cast iron skillet to about 550 deg F in 5 minutes. I love IR instant read thermometers! That pan will put a sear on a steak, and I'm lucky enough to have two vent fans, one on the roof and one on the hood so I can sear and make all the smoke I want and it gets pulled out quickly.

Hey Søren,

 

This is a gourmet thread, but one must digress from time to time.

 

I have Windows 7 on my newer computer and resisted all the FREE offers from Microsoft for Windows 10.

 

May I deduce from your commentary that I made the right choice?

 

Microsoft in the infinite wisdom and concern for their customers will yank support for Windows 7 sooner rather than later, however I am running Windows XP on my older but thoroughly usable second computer, so there are ways around that.  Surprise

Not quite sure how you prepared it, but don’t change a thing, its perfect! Yes - thumbs up

 

The above photos I will guess are green peppers for the chili.

You and I eat our chili the same way Rich, over white rice with cheese, only I also add a dollop of sour cream in the middle. Last batch of freezer food I made was white chicken chili with green chilies, corn, onion, red peppers, and white beans.

It was Thanks giving in the US, we Mexicans dont celebrate it, but in my house we do, it is a good tradition to say thank you once a year and be done with that until the next year.

As we were only 4 persons (3 girls and me) I made a couple of Beef Wellington, as always in Mexico one dont know how many people to expect, some bring their mothers, kids or best friends, this time only the invited turned up. That why I made two Wellingtons, the not eaten is in the refrigerator to be eaten tomorrow or latest Tuesday.

Here the pics

Today is Sunday, the first of 4 Sundays before Xmas, in DK its called Advent, every one of these Advent Sundays before Xmas are celebrated in DK, vi light some candles and sing some Psalms together (or did, today it tends to disappear), when a kid my mother always made Æbleskiver (Google that :-) ) this of course was the most important for me, I do like singing and still remember most of the lyrics and melodies, they were beat into us in school in the 50ies and 60ies, I was always the fore singer, not because I had a good voice, but because I was the loudest.

But here the Æbleskiver

Sorry wrong pic, here goes as you see a special skillet

Small batch finished, they are kind of sweet and you dip them into sugar or marmalade to your like

Hello Søren,

 

Great tradition and wonderful meal. Salute. Love the Æbleskiver.

 

I only have one picture, sigh, but American Thanksgiving (it is one word, by the way) was a HUGE success. This after Canadian Thanksgiving. (I see a diet in my immediate future!)

 

We started with avocados stuffed with shrimp (for the family) and ham for me. Very nice.

 

The turkey with stuffing was absolute perfection…. bland for The Dad and SPICY for me. Followed by mashed potatoes and gravy, with yams and corn.

 

Dessert was a change from the traditional pumpkin cheesecake and this year was a pumpkin pie which was more of a soufflé…… light, unlike the cheesecake.

 

But the reason for the HUGE success was more that The Dad arrived in a good mood and had a great time. Good conversation and a great meal made for a memorable evening.

 

Today we went to The Dad’s house to put up his Christmas lights which made him very happy. He rewarded us with a lunch to remember at the marina in Sidney.  OMG.

Some good looking Thanksgiving food above!

We had 5 total, my wife and I, and her sister, younger brother, and mother, and had a wonderful party. I made a turkey ***, mashed potatoes, gravy, sweet corn bread pudding (replacement for cornbread stuffing), cranberry/orange sauce, green beans with almonds on top, and pumpkin goat cheese cheese cake. I made this once a couple of years ago and have been commanded to make it again every year, but this year, lo and behold, I managed to make it without the top cracking! Hooray! I've obsessed over this, which my wife doesn't understand, she says if it cracks that's an excuse to put more whipped cream on it to cover it up, but I am a perfectionist and was delighted to see after it cooled, no cracks. I love the recipe, I use a lighter goat cheese, which makes the texture lighter and smoother than most cheesecake, and also the tartness of the goat cheese cuts what might otherwise be a cloying sweetness (too many cheesecakes seem too sweet to me).

I have found a Greek restaurant in a nearby small town (population 3000) that makes baklava cheesecake, a traditional, but very fluffy and creamy cheesecake with a layer of baklava on top. Incredibly delicious. Town is about 15 miles away down a nice, pleasant back country road.

Still finishing up the leftovers, turkey sandwiches with cranberry sauce are tasty, but we finished it up yesterday I guess since it's early in the morning when I'm posting this. That's about the way I like it, not too many leftovers, we'd have been thru with them Saturday but we went out to eat some on Friday and Saturday. I still have two pieces of cheesecake left for a treat though.

* Really now!!! B r e a s t is a naughty word!?!? I can't even right about cooking chicken breasts?

OK, why is turkey *** bad but chicken breasts passed the censor?

Three breasts acceptable. One *** not. If no asterisks appear in this post my theory is balls.
