How to Make Candied Ginger

How to Make Candied Ginger
There’s an inside joke amongst people who write books about baking that any recipe that begins with “Using a candy thermometer…..” scares the pants off of people and is enough to ward away all but the most dedicated baker. I’m not sure why that is. It’s like when people tell me, “I can’t bake.” While baking is a fairly exacting affair, 1 cup of sugar is pretty clear: it’s one cup of sugar. It’s not like frying fish or meat, where you need to gauge doneness yourself, or making salad dressing where personal taste and the ingredients used can alter the finished result. But the thermometers does not lie.* I mean 225 degrees is pretty clear: it’s 225 degrees. So I won’t tell you that you have to use a candy thermometer to candy ginger, but it does help. The great thing about candying your own ginger is that aside from the fact that you can make it without the aid of the dreaded thermometer, you get plenty of spicy slices from just a pound of ginger.

12 Summer Fruit Dessert Recipes Here's one way to stump even the most ardent dessert fan: Quiz them on what differentiates a crisp from a crumble, a crumble from a cobbler, a cobbler from a buckle, a buckle from a pandowdy. Intracacies aside, they are all delicious—the crumbs are tender and buttery, the biscuits sugared and browned, the oats caramelized and crispy. The fruit flows molten beneath. They are exuberantly messy—and best with a shower of cream or a scoop of vanilla melting over it. Desserts With Benefits I have always had an obsession with butterscotch flavor… not necessarily butterscotch candies, just butterscotch flavor. It’s like caramel but with more depth. It’s like brown sugar but with more sophistication. So it seems like a given that I would love butterscotch chips, right? False.

Gujarati Series: Parwar-Batata Curry Parwar, or often known as the 'pointed gourd' is a regular in our Gujarati thalis...I am not too fond of this vegetable when cooked by itself, but paired with the "Shehari Babu" potato- it turns into something special...why "Shehari Babu"? you ask, well, that what K calls them.....he often makes fun of me because he grew up on a farm, where his family had access to all sorts of vegetables....and since I grew up in a "city", I hadn't even tasted some of the Vegetables that he was used to. So, he often says that "Shehari"folks eat a lot of potatoes....not sure how true this is now..but yes, my mother did add potatoes to every curry she made!
