I desperately wanted to use my new rectangular tart pan that I bought from Sydney in November, & savoury was on my mind. Buckwheat made an entry back into my life just at the end of last year… here, when we returned from Sydney. The tart can be made in advance, like a quiche. The pastry can also be made in advance, & the shell frozen too for future use. My own recipe… Method: Version 1: Version 2: Bon appetit! Posted by Deeba @ PAB

My best food London Farmers' Markets | home Lorraine Pascale Pressure Cooker Pulled Pork Mix together in a bowl the sugar, smoked paprika, dry mustard, and a teaspoon of salt.

Add water and beer to pressure cooker. Place a stainless steel steamer basket in the bottom of your pressure cooker. Remove from pressure cooker, set in bowl and use two forks to shred the pork. Pour off all but 1/2 cup of the drippings from the pressure cooker. Turn heat down and simmer for 10 minutes. Add bbq sauce to the pork a bit at a time.

Jak zrobić mus truskawkowy? - Produkty - Kuchnia polska - Wieszjak.pl Mus z owoców - chyba nie ma lepszego sposobu na orzeźwienie w słoneczne, ciepłe dni. Nie warto czekać do lata, skoro już mamy świeże krajowe truskawki - wykorzystajmy to! Trudno ułożyć uniwersalny zbiór wskazówek przydatnych przy przygotowywaniu musu - warto za to zebrać kilka pomysłów w jednym miejscu - na pewno ułatwi to wybór najlepszej metody. Ważne jest, by wszystkie składniki musu dokładnie wymieszać i w miarę możliwości rozbić, by był gładki.
