Here are a few tips that may help clarify some of the mysteries. There are two categories of mushrooms out there: wild and cultivated. New cultivars are on the market that you used to only find in the wild, like maitake (hen of the woods) and royal trumpets, as are mushrooms long cultivated in the Far East, like wood ear and enoki, and more wild varieties are showing up in specialty stores, like blewets and black trumpets. In general wild mushrooms are more intensely flavored, benefiting as they probably do from their soil and bacterial symbionts, but the cultivated varieties are excellent, too. When buying mushrooms, either wild or cultivated, look for moist firm specimens that have a nice strong smell. So how to cook different mushrooms? When cooking mushrooms, look at the morphology: are the dense?

Author Notes: I began experimenting with homemade Sriracha two summers ago after discovering Joshua Bousel's recipe on Serious Eats ( The first batch, while tasty in its own right, was bright and in-your-face hot, and missing the earthiness of the beloved Huy Fong version.

Homemade Sriracha recipe on Food52

I spent the rest of my summer on a quest for an earthier, more complex sauce. By fall, I’d found it. The keys to this much improved homemade Sriracha were the following: A longer fermentation, achieved by increasing the amount of sugar. Using smoked sea salt in addition to regular kosher salt. Thickening with xanthan gum instead of reducing the sauce over heat. The result is a sauce that is a bit hotter than the Huy Fong version, but with all the earthy complexities that make it so darn tasty.

Also, a few tips: Wear food-safe gloves when working with the hot pepper mash. Makes about 2 cups This recipe is a Community Pick! Add Some Spice to Your Life. DIY Maraschino Cherries with Amaretto - Savvy Eats. Some friends and I tried to go blueberry picking on Friday, just before the heat wave hit.

DIY Maraschino Cherries with Amaretto - Savvy Eats

The farm’s newsletter said that blueberries would be ready last Wednesday, so we figured that there would be plenty of ripe, plump berries for us to brush into our buckets. I should have thought to call ahead, but instead we drove for 35 minutes only to find that….the blueberries weren’t ready yet. Cue the sad trombones. But we had driven all that way, with our containers packed into the back seat. We were slathered in sunscreen and had quickly-melting ice water at the ready to rehydrate. “Some sour cherries and red raspberries,” they told us. Side note: I don’t know why, but I have it in my head that only black raspberries are June/July fruits, and that the reds and goldens are only in late summer/early fall. Because I wasn’t entirely sure what I was going to do with the cherries, I left two of my three containers behind, bringing only the largest with me to collect the fruit.

31 Fun Treats To Make In A Muffin Tin. Shakshuka. There are a lot of reasons to make shakshuka, an Israeli Tunisian dish of eggs poached in a spicy tomato sauce: It sounds like the name of a comic book hero. Or some kind of fierce, long-forgotten martial art. Or perhaps something that said comic book hero would yell as they practiced this elaborate martial art, mid-leap with their fist in the air. Or you could make it because when I talked about making eggs in tomato sauce a while back a large handful of comments were along the lines of “oh, this sounds like shakshuka” and “I think you would love shakshuka” and “you really should make shakshuka” and you may have shrugged and forgotten about it until you finally had it at a café one day and whoa it turns out you really would like shakshuka!

The first time I made marshmallows, well, I don’t think saying “it was a mess” adequately describes it. Oh, the marshmallows were successful; they even looked and tasted like marshmallows, but yours truly? I ended up in a tangled web of marshmallow strings. It all went south when I couldn’t resist the urge to scrape down the paddle and bowl (anyone else an obsessive bowl scraper?

I cringe when things go to waste). The paddle was gunked to the bowl and the scraper was glued to the paddle and then — and it is my duty to implore you not to do this at home — you think, “well, I’ll just wipe off the paddle with my index finger” and then your index finger gets knit to the scraper and then you think “well, let me use my other finger to wipe this one off” and all of a sudden, you’ve got strands of marshmallow strung from each finger to the bowl, the mixer, the paddle, the scraper, each corner of the pan, your shirt, the floor and then your husband comes home just as you’re pleading “help! Blue Kale Road: Homemade Sriracha. A couple of years ago I got hooked on homemade sriracha.

I had discovered a recipe on Food52 and made it immediately. Upon tasting the homemade sauce, my family and I declared it superior to the store-bought sriracha which we immediately tossed out in favor of our new favorite. This experience opened my eyes to the world of homemade condiments, and sriracha became my gateway condiment, if you will. Here at Blue Kale Road, I love telling you about new creations as well as family recipes, and sriracha has become a family recipe. It is one of those repertoire recipes, one without which my boys will not leave home. I’ve seen quite a few variations of sriracha made in home kitchens, some are cooked, others fresh, some have fish sauce, while others have tomatoes. The clean, fresh, vibrant flavors will make your taste buds sing, and it packs a punch!

Christie Matheson | Cake Simple | Chronicle, 2011 The One and I first went to Paris on December 30, 1993, to ring in the New Year. As a couple, we were barely three months old, so everything we did was met with our mutual smiles and contented, self-satisfied sighs. It was as if no other couple had ever taken a picture on the Pont Neuf, strolled through the Tuileries, scratched their heads over the surprisingly miniscule size of the Mona Lisa, or eaten a Nutella-filled crêpe in the street. When the street cart crêpier tossed his chin out to us, his way of asking what kind of crêpe we wanted, I hesitated. Ever since seventh grade, when I began studying French, I’d dreamed about biting into a crêpe, à la the dogs in “Lady and The Tramp,” with The One.

If ignorance is bliss and love is blind, then falling in love in Paris makes you a blind idiot. Then this recipe came along. Wounded, I gave the remainder of the homemade Nutella to Annie, my assistant. LC Deliver Me From Temptation... 1. Make Your Own Peanut Butter. Vanilla Extract Recipe.
