If you like cheesecake you'll LOVE's easy Just make sure you have the proper pan and I suggest using a blender/food processor (it makes for a smoother cake):

Spicy Chicken

boneless skinless breast of chicken
taco seasoning
hot pepper cheese
sour cream

Put taco seasoning in a bag with a little water or oil. Add chicken and shake until coated... Bake in oven until cooked or on a grill. Once chicken is just about done place hot pepper cheese on it and let it melt. When serving add sour cream and salsa. This is good served with rice or baked potatoes.... very simple and delicious.... enjoy


christmas cookies
Jul 25, 06 - 10:08 AM

1 cup water
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup brown sugar
lemon juice
4 large eggs
1 cup nuts
2 cups of dried fruit
1 bottle Jose Cuervo Tequila

Sample the Cuervo to check quality. Take a large bowl, check the Cuervo again, to be sure it is of the highest quality, pour one level cup and drink. Turn on the electric mixer ... Beat one cup of butter in a large fluffy bowl. Add one teaspoon of sugar...Beat again. At this point it's best to make sure the Cuervo is still OK, try another cup..just in case.

Turn off the mixerer thingy. Break 2 leggs and add to the bowl and chuck in the cup of dried fruit. Pick the frigging fruit off floor... Mix on the turner. If the fried druit gets stuck in the beaterers, just pry loose with a drewscriver. Sample the Cuervo to check for tonsisticity.

Next, sift two cups of salt, or something. Who givshz a sheet. Check the Jose Cuervo. Now shift the lemon juice and strain your nuts. Add one table. Add a spoon of sugar, or somefink. Whatever you can find.

Greash the oven.
Turn the cake tin 360 degrees and try not to fall over. Don't forget to beat off the turner. Finally, throw the bowl through the window, finish the Cose Juervo and make sure to put the stove in the dishwasher.

Cherry Mistmas!??

This is my favorite dish for garden time. It takes some work, but well worth it in my opinion.


Clean and cut into bite sized chunks at least 1 of each:

Zucchini Squash
Yellow Crooked Neck Squash
Carrots (2 of these)
Bell Pepper ( I like to use both green and red)

Any other fresh vegetable you want to add.

Drain off water. Put all in a large fry pan or pot, or a wok, and gently pour oil (I use canola or olive oil) over vegetables, just enough to stir into it - maybe 1/8 cup at most. You don't want to soak them, just have enough to cook the vegetables. Stir all together to coat vegetables, and put on burner turned on medium high. As it heats, stir often. You can add sliced cooked meat like chicken, turkey, beef, or pork if you like. When it looks like all vegetables have cooked, it is ready to serve. This is also good served over rice.

What the is one for tonight. I will post some more another day.

Barbara Bush Layered Salad

2 lb. chopped spinach
10 hard boiled eggs sliced
I lb. bacon cooked and crumbled
1 medium head lettuce shredded
1 cup sliced green onions
1 package thawed green peas

Place in order in layers in a deep dish or pan with the spinach on the bottom and each successive layer spread across evenly. Mix the dressing below and spread over the last layer of green peas.

2 ½ cups mayonnaise
2 ½ cups sour cream
Salt, pepper, Worcestershire sauce, and lemon juice to taste

1 small box of sea shell pasta
1 small bag of frozen peas
1 bag of shredded carrots
2 bags of bacon pieces (not bits)
2 cups of mayo
1 small bottle bacon ranch dressing

cook the pasta and then mix everything else in and put in the frige till ready to eat. I also add onions and shredded cheese sometimes. If I have time I fry my own baccon & it taste much better but its messy crumbling it up.

E-tater Salad

6 red e-taters with the skins 1 small chopped onion
1 Cup chopped celery 1 tsp celery seed
4 hard cooked eggs, diced 1 tsp salt
1 Cup chopped carrots
2 eggs well beaten ¾ Cup sugar
1 tsp corn starch salt to taste
¼ to ½ Cup apple cider vinegar (to taste) 1 tsp yellow mustard
½ Cup cream or evaporated milk 1 to 3 Tbsp butter softened
1 Cup mayonnaise or salad dressing

This is almost as good as my E-taters and Ramp Casserole. Bring All your E-taters to a boil for about 20 minutes. Drain and set aside. Whisk together 2 eggs, sugar, corn starch, and salt in saucepan. Stir in vinegar, milk, and mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, until thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat, and stir in butter. Refrigerate until cool, then stir in mayonnaise. Peel the E-taters if desired, and cut into medium dice. Place in large bowl, and toss with the onion (or you can use some of those left over ramps you picked this spring), celery, carrots, celery seed and hard cooked eggs. Gently fold in the dressing. Refrigerate until serving. The flavors blend better if you let it sit at least a day. hehe, Got to go Black Trumpet Mushrooms are up, and the Chanterelles will be up real good next week. Keep pickin those wild things.

Oh almost forgot, the squash is coming on also.

1 Can cream of chicken or mushroom soup
(I like cream of chicken and mushroom)
½ Cup sour cream
1 carrot finely chopped 1 small onion chopped
3 cubed yellow squash salt and pepper
½ pkg bread crumbs or ritz crackers 1/3 Cup melted butter
Mix soup and sour cream. Set aside. Boil onion, squash, carrot, salt and pepper. Cover and cook 10 minutes then drain. Mix bread crumbs and butter.(I like to use the crackers) Set aside. Drain veggies and, add to soup and sour cream mixture. Add bread crumb mixture on top. Bake at 350 degrees covered for 25 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 10 minutes to brown bread crumbs. Well have fun this weekend, the corn should be coming on soon.

Thai Chicken Salad

¾ cup creamy poppy seed salad dressing
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 1-inch piece unpeeled fresh gingerroot, grated and juiced

1 package (6 ounces) fresh baby spinach leaves
1 package (12 ounces) broccoli slaw mix
1 medium cucumber, scored, seeded, and sliced
1 small red bell pepper, sliced into strips

Chicken Mixture
1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, flattened and cut into ½ inch pieces
¼ cup snipped fresh basil leaves
¼ cup peanuts, chopped

1. For dressing, combine salad dressing, garlic, and gingerroot juice in a bowl and whisk and set aside.

2. For salad, place spinach, slaw mix, cucumber, and bell pepper in a large bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve.

3. For chicken mixture, spray a skillet with Pam and place over medium heat. Add chicken in single layer. Cook without stirring two minutes or until chicken begins to brown. Stir fry 2-3 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink. Remove from heat. Add basil, peanuts, and ¼ cup of the dressing. Toss to coat.

4. To serve, toss salad with remaining dressing. Top with chicken mixture and serve immediately.

Serves 8. Delicious!!

Easy Beef Enchiladas

1 pound ground beef
1 pkg. corn tortillas
2 cans of Wolf Brand Chili (No Beans)
1 pkg. shredded cheddar cheese (or your choice)
1 cup chopped green onions
1 cup Pace Picante Sauce (medium)

1. Brown ground beef and drain. Add Picante sauce and simmer while tortillas are being prepared.
2. Soften tortillas by either quickly dipping them one at a time into heated cooking oil--or by warming them in the microwave for 20-30 seconds. You may warm several at a time in the microwave. (The microwave is easier but the other method is tastier.)
3. Let tortillas cool briefly. Fill each with the meat mixture, roll up and place side by side in a baking dish.
4. Place the chili in a saucepan and warm for one minute or until it can be poured over the filled tortillas.
5. Spread the chopped onions over the chili and then cover generously with the cheese.
6. Bake in oven at 350 until the enchiladas are bubbling and the cheese is melted.

Tip: It is important that enough chili is poured over the tortillas to keep them soft and moist.

3/4 cup white sugar
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
5 eggs
1 (14 ounce) can sweetened condensed milk
1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
2. In a small, heavy saucepan over medium-low heat, cook sugar, stirring, until golden. Pour into a 10 inch round baking dish, tilting to coat bottom and sides. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time, until well incorporated. Beat in condensed and evaporated milk and vanilla until smooth. Pour into caramel coated pan. Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel. Place baking dish on towel, inside roasting pan, and place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of the baking dish.
4. Bake in preheated oven 50 to 60 minutes, until center is just set. Cool one hour on wire rack, then chill in refrigerator 8 hours or overnight. To unmold, run a knife around edges of pan and invert on a rimmed serving platter.
5. Garnish with fresh raspberries and mint leaves.

(This is not as difficult as it may appear...and it is well worth the effort. I make it when I have company. Goes well with a Mexican dinner.)

(Very rich)

2 cups all purpose flour
2 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. baking powder
3/4 cup water
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup butter or margarine
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
4 oz. melted unsweetened chocolate, slightly cooled
1 cup Snicker bars, finely chopped

1. Sift together the dry ingredients
2. Mix together all the ingredients except the Snicker bars in a large mixer bowl.
3. Mix for 30 seconds on low speed and then for 3 minutes on high. The batter will be creamy. Stir in the Snicker bars.
4. Grease and flour two 8-inch round cake pans. Pour batter into pans. (This is very important since the caramel in the candy bars will stick without the pans having been well greased and floured.)
5. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes or until tester comes out clean.
6. Cook cake and frost with the frosting below.


1 pkg. (8 oz.) cream cheese
1/4 cup butter
2 oz. unsweetened chocolate, melted, slightly cooled
1 box (8 oz.) powered sugar.
1 cup chopped Snicker bars (optional)

1. Cream butter and cream cheese. Add chocolate. Mix well and add powdered sugar. Add sugar and beat until light and creamy.
2. You may add chopped Snicker bars to the frosting or wait until cake is frosted and sprinkle on top.
3. The cake will be more attractive without the Snicker bars in the frosting, but not as tasty.
4. Frost middle, sides, and top with frosting. Refrigerate.

Easy Chicken and Dumplings
(These are not your granny's dumplings, but they are a fair substitute for the beginner cook.)

1 chicken (may be whole or cut up)
Salt, pepper, ground sage to taste
1 package of flour tortillas

Boil chicken in a pot with 6-8 cups of water to which 1 tsp. of salt has been added. When chicken is tender, remove from the water, remove the skin, and debone. Set aside. Continue the broth boiling. Add more salt if needed, pepper, and 1 tsp. ground sage. If the broth is not rich enough, add 1 Tbsp. butter or margarine. Cut the tortillas into 1 inch strips. Drop into broth and cook for a couple minutes. Add the chicken back into the pot and simmer for 5 minutes.

I still make traditional rolled dumplings, but these are not bad and there is practically no mess.

1 Medium Elephant
2 rabbits
Salt and Pepper
Cut Elephant into small bite size pieces. Add enough brown gravy to cover. Cook over Kerosene fire about 4 weeks at 460 degrees. This will serve 3,800 people. If more are expected, 2 more rabbits may be added, but do this only in emergency. Most people do not like Hare in their stew.

Canned Salsa

Sep 3rd, 2006 - 2:36 AM

I like Salsa and everyone knows it's almost $5.oo for a small jar. Try this. Get some Salsa mix, I prefer the Ball brand in the 4oz packs. They make about 7 pints. If you want to make quart jars for partys get 2 packs and it will make about 6 will need about 14-15 cups of peeled diced, and seeded tomatoes for each pack. Mine came out mostly juice the first time. The secret here is where it says seeded tomatoes. If you dont seed them, removing the center, then at least drain the juice off of the tomatoes before putting them in the jars. They will make plenty more juice when they cook. You need one cup of cider vinegar per package. If you like yours hot you can add chopped hot peppers out of the garden and even your favorite hot sauce if you like. The pepper will cook down soft also. after you have drained the juice off and added any other spices and your vinegar, cook the ingredients on the stove at a simmer, covered for 5 minutes only. Ladle hot Salsa into your sterile jars leaving 1/4 inch from the top. Cap the jars and process in boiling water bath another 35 minutes.
Call me when your finished, I'll bring the chips

I'm making salsa tomorrow and my recipe is just about the same, but I run my tomatoes through a Vitorio strainer and add chopped, seeded tomatoes, celery, hot peppers, garlic, green peppers, and onions to the mix for a garden salsa. I also can chili mix by running the tomatoes through the strainer, cooking onions, peppers, & garlic in the tomato mixture strain again, and add chili powder, pepper, and brown sugar (as per your taste preference). I pack in pint jars and process. When I make chili, I put a pint in with my home canned tomato soup after browning my ground meat. I am not a Pocahontas native and have never heard of "chili soup" ever! My mom always made chili with celery, onions, green peppers, and kidney beans. She always prepared corn bread muffins, fried potatoes, and plain lettuce with a ranch like dressing. Oh yes - the chili was cooked in a cast iron skillet - I can taste it now!

hot dog weiners and peppers

Sep 4th, 2006 - 12:39 AM

hot dog weiners and peppers

2 Cups Vinegar 3 Cups Sugar
2 Cups Wesson Oil (1 Pint) 1 Tbsp Salt
2 lb Weiners cut into quarters 64 oz Ketchup
2 Gallons Hot Peppers
( I slice mine into rings and take the top inside seeds out just below the stem)

Combine Vinegar, Oil, Sugar, Salt, Ketchup, and Hot Dogs into large Pot. Bring to a light boil and then let simmer for 5 minutes. Add the Peppers and Cook until wilted.
(Hint: I don’t let mine wilt down to much because you are going to cook them some more in the Hot Bath)

Pack into Sterilized Jars and seal with lids. (leave about ½ inch from the top of the jars) Put into a Hot Boiling Water Bath for an additional 10-15 minutes. (I have found that the
New lids they have come out seal better for me if you hot bath about 8 minutes. I have had a lot of lids look like they wrinkle on me from cooking to long in the hot bath. I have found my Green Beans, or anything precooked and already hot, seems to work better at around 8 more minutes than what a recipe calls for.)

I like to add more hot dogs to mine, the kids always pick the hot dogs out of the jar and leave the peppers.

Sep 18th, 2006 - 9:27 PM minced meat and spiced apples

I've never seen a recipe for spiced apples using the leftover mincemeat juices. However minced meat over the years became made out of dried fruits instead of meat. Therefore I guess you could add the mincemeat juices to the peach juices for any spiced peach recipe. There is all kinds of minced meat recipes using different dried fruits, so you can experiment around with your favorite fruits for your taste. Almost all the minced meat recipes include brandy as a main ingredient. As far as mincemeat and peaches together, I did have a few recipes, along with one minced meat recipe. Mixing the flavors of mincemeat with peaches is very popular at christmas time and you can find quite a few pie recipes that include various friut pies, filled with mincemeat. Heres what I had if you would like to add them to your collection. The Festive Peaches recipe is real simple but good and may be close to what you are looking for in a spicy sliced peach recipe. enjoy.

Sep 19th, 2006 - 8:58 PM Re: Recipie

I found this recipe searching for (mincemeat, peaches). Not sure if this is the same recipe but it is the only one that came up with mincemeat. Didn't find any with mincemeat juices.

spiced peaches

3 1-quart canning jars
8 c brown sugar, packed
4 cinnamon sticks
4 whole cloves
6 pounds peaches
2-3/4 cups cider vinegar
1 cn (10 oz) mincemeat
1-1/3c apricot or peach brandy

* Use additional cloves and cinnamon sticks for spicier peaches. This recipe
calls for 24 medium-sized peaches, which is about 6 pounds total weight.

1. Place into a large heavy kettle or sauce pan: sugar, cider vinegar, and brandy. Tie cinnamon sticks and 4 teaspoons of whole cloves in a double thickness of cheesecloth; add to the saucepan.
2. Place pan over medium heat and stir until sugar is dissolved. Bring to boiling, cover, and boil for five minutes. Uncover and boil five minutes
3. While sugar mixture is boiling, prepare peaches. Have a large pot of water boiling rapidly. Wash peaches, and working with 7 to 8 peaches at a
time, plunge them into the boiling water. Immediately plunge into cold water and gently slip off the skins. Leave peaches whole or cut in half and remove pit. Whole peaches are the usual southern tradition.
4. Insert a whole clove into each peach, or for spicier peaches insert several cloves. Add peaches to hot syrup. Bring syrup to boiling again and add peaches and mincemeat, simmer for 10 minutes or until peaches are tender.
5. Quickly drain one sterilized jar. Pack hot peaches into jar, adding a cinnamon stick for spicier flavor. Cover top with waxed paper and set aside while preparing 2nd and 3rd jar. Repeat steps 3 through 5 with 7 to 8 more peaches for 2nd jar. Repeat again for 3rd jar.
6. Bring syrup to boiling and pour into jars to within 1/2 inch of top. Wipe away any food about fill line and on rim of jar; immediately seal.

Yield: about 3 quarts.

Old Fashioned Recipes for Making Preserves


APPLE JAM.--Fill a wide jar nearly half full of water; cut the apples unpeeled into quarters, take out the core, then fill the jar with the apples; tie a paper over it, and put it into a slow oven. When quite soft and cool, pulp them through a sieve. To each pound of pulp put three-quarters of a pound of crushed sugar, and boil it gently until it will jelly. Put it into large tart dishes or jars. It will keep for five or more years in a cool, dry place. If for present use, or a month hence, half a pound of sugar is enough.

APPLE MARMALADE.--Scald apples till they will pulp from the core; then take an equal weight of sugar in large lumps, just dip them in water, and boil it till it can be well skimmed, and is a thick syrup, put to it the pulp, and simmer it on a quick fire a quarter of an hour. Grate a little lemon-peel before boiled, but if too much it will be bitter.

BARBERRY JAM.--The barberries for this preserve should be quite ripe, though they should not be allowed to hang until they begin to decay. Strip them from the stalks; throw aside such as are spotted, and for one pound of fruit allow eighteen ounces well-refined sugar; boil this, with about a pint of water to every four pounds, until it becomes white, and falls in thick masses from the spoon; then throw in the fruit, and keep it stirred over a brisk fire for six minutes only; take off the scum, and pour it into jars or glasses. Sugar four and a half pounds; water a pint and a quarter, boil to candy height; barberries four pounds; six minutes.

HOW TO PRESERVE BLACK CURRANTS.--Get the currants when they are dry, and pick them; to every 1-1/4 lbs. of currants put 1 lb. of sugar into a preserving pan, with as much juice of currants as will dissolve it; when it boils skim it, and put in the currants, and boil them till they are clear; put them into a jar, lay brandy paper over them, tie them down, and keep in a dry place. A little raspberry juice is an improvement.

CHERRY JAM.--Pick and stone 4 lbs. of May-duke cherries; press them through a sieve; then boil together half a pint of red currant or raspberry juice, and 3/4 lb. of white sugar, put the cherries into them while boiling; add 1 lb. of fine white sugar. Boil quickly 35 minutes, jar, and cover well.

CHERRY MARMALADE.--Take some very ripe cherries; cut off the stalks and take out the stones; crush them and boil them well; put them into a hand sieve, and force them through with a spatula, till the whole is pressed through and nothing remains but the skins; put it again upon the fire to dry; when reduced to half weigh it, and add an equal weight of sugar; boil again; and when it threads between the fingers, it is finished.

HOW TO PRESERVE CURRANTS FOR TARTS.--Let the currants be ripe, dry and well picked. To every 1-1/4 lbs. of currants put 1 lb. of sugar into a preserving pan with as much juice of currants as will dissolve it; when it boils skim it, and put in the currants; boil till clear; jar, and put brandy-paper over; tie down; keep in a dry place.

HOW TO PRESERVE GRAPES.--Into an air-tight cask put a layer of bran dried in an oven; upon this place a layer of grapes, well dried, and not quite ripe, and so on alternately till the barrel is filled; end with bran, and close air-tight; they will keep 9 or 10 months. To restore them to their original freshness, cut the end off each bunch stalk, and put into wine, like flowers. Or, Bunches of grapes may be preserved through winter by inserting the end of the stem into a potato. The bunches should be laid on dry straw,and turned occasionally.

HOW TO PRESERVE GREEN GAGES.--Choose the largest when they begin to soften; split them without paring; strew upon them part of the sugar. Blanch the kernels with a sharp knife. Next day pour the syrup fromthe fruit, and boil it with the other sugar six or eight minutes gently; skim and add the plums and kernels. Simmer till clear, taking off the scum; put the fruit singly into small pots, and pour the syrup and kernels to it. To candy it, do not add the syrup, but observe the directions given for candying fruit; some may be done each way.

GREEN GAGE JAM.--Peel and take out the stones. To 1 lb. of pulp put 3/4 lb. loaf sugar; boil half an hour; add lemon juice.

TRANSPARENTLY BEAUTIFUL MARMALADE.--Take 3 lbs. bitter oranges; pare them as you would potatoes; cut the skin into fine shreds, and put them into a muslin bag; quarter all the oranges; press out the juice. Boil the pulp and shreds in three quarts of water 2-1/2 hours, down to three pints; strain through a hair sieve. Then put six pounds of sugar to the liquid, the juice and the shreds, the outside of two lemons grated, and the insides squeezed in; add three cents worth of isinglass. Simmer altogether slowly for 15 or 20 minutes.

TOMATO MARMALADE.--Take ripe tomatoes in the height of the season; weigh them, and to every pound of tomatoes add one pound of sugar. Put the tomatoes into a large pan or small tub, and scald them with boiling water, so as to make the skin peel off easily; When you have entirely removed the skin, put the tomatoes (without any water) into a preserving kettle, wash them, and add the sugar, with one ounce of powdered ginger to every three pounds of fruit, and the juice of
two lemons, the grated rind of three always to every three pounds of fruit. Stir up the whole together, and set it over a moderate fire. Boil it gently for two or three hours; till the whole becomes a thick, smooth mass, skimming it well, and stirring it to the bottom after every skimming. When done, put it warm into jars, and cover tightly. This will be found a very fine sweetmeat.

HOW TO PRESERVE GREEN PEAS.--Shell, and put them into a kettle of water when it boils; give them two or three warms only, and pour them in a colander. Drain, and turn them out on a cloth, and then on another to dry perfectly. When dry bottle them in wide mouthed bottles; leaving only room to pour clarified mutton suet upon them an inch thick, and for the cork. Rosin it down; and keep in the cellar, or in the earth, as directed for gooseberries. When they are to be used, boil them till tender, with a bit of butter, a spoonful of sugar, and a bit of mint.

HOW TO PRESERVE GREEN PEAS FOR WINTER USE.--Carefully shell the peas; then place them in the canister, not too large ones; put in a small piece of alum, about the size of a horse-bean to a pint of peas. When the canister is full of peas, fill up the interstices with water, and solder on the lid perfectly air-tight, and boil the canisters for about twenty minutes; then remove them to a cool place, and by the time of January they will be found but little inferior to fresh, new-gathered peas. Bottling is not so good; at least, we have not found it so; for the air gets in, the liquid turns sour, and the peas acquire a bad taste.

HOW TO KEEP PRESERVES.--Apply the white of an egg, with a brush, to a single thickness of white tissue paper, with which covers the jars,lapping over an inch or two. It will require no tying, as it will become, when dry, inconceivably tight and strong, and impervious to the air.

QUINCES FOR THE TEA-TABLE.--Bake ripe quinces thoroughly; when cold, strip off the skins, place them in a glass dish, and sprinkle with white sugar, and serve them with cream. They make a fine looking dish for the tea-table, and a more luscious and inexpensive one than the same fruit made into sweetmeats. Those who once taste the fruit thus prepared, will probably desire to store away a few bushels in the fall to use in the above manner.

PICKLED PEARS.--Three pounds of sugar to a pint of vinegar, spice in a bag and boil, then cook the pears in the vinegar till done through.

BOILED PEARS.--Boil pears in water till soft, then add one pound of sugar to three pounds of fruit.

PICKLED CITRON.--One quart vinegar, two pounds sugar, cloves and cinnamon each one tablespoon, boil the citron tender in water, take them out and drain, then put them in the syrup and cook till done.

HOW TO PRESERVE RASPBERRIES.--Take raspberries that are not too ripe, and put them to their weight in sugar, with a little water. Boil softly, and do not break them; when they are clear, take them up, and boil the syrup till it be thick enough; then put them in again, and when they are cold, put them in glasses or jars.

RASPBERRY JAM.--One pound sugar to four pounds fruit, with a few currants.

SPICED CURRANTS.--Six pounds currants, four pounds sugar, two tablespoons cloves and two of cinnamon, and one pint of vinegar; boil two hours until quite thick.

STEWED PEARS--Pare and halve or quarter a dozen pears, according to their size; carefully remove the cores, but leave the sloths on. Place them in a clean baking-jar, with a closely fitting lid; add to them the rind of one lemon, cut in strips, and the juice of half a lemon, six cloves, and whole allspice, according to discretion. Put in just enough water to cover the whole, and allow half a pound of loaf-sugar to every pint. Cover down close, and bake in a very cool oven for five hours, or stew them very gently in a lined saucepan from three to four hours. When done, lift them out on a glass dish without breaking them; boil up the syrup quickly for two or three minutes; let it cool a little, and pour it over the pears. A little cochineal greatly enhances the appearance of the fruit; you may add a few drops of prepared cochineal; and a little port wine is often used, and much improves the flavor.

HOW TO PRESERVE WHOLE STRAWBERRIES--Take equal weights of the fruit and refined sugar, lay the former in a large dish, and sprinkle half the sugar in fine powder over, give a gentle shake to the dish that the sugar may touch the whole of the fruit; next day make a thin syrup with the remainder of the sugar, and instead of water allow one pint of red currant juice to every pound of strawberries; in this simmer them until sufficiently jellied. Choose the largest scarlets, or others when not dead ripe.

HOW TO PRESERVE STRAWBERRIES IN WINE--Put a quantity of the finest large strawberries into a gooseberry-bottle, and strew in three large spoonfuls of fine sugar; fill up with Madeira
wine or fine sherry.

PRESERVED TOMATOES--One pound of sugar to one pound of ripe tomatoes boiled down; flavor with lemon.

1/4 cup shredded carrot
2 Tablespoons minced sweet onion
1/3 cup granulated sugar

Re: Recipe Swap

Imitation Kentucky Fried Chicken- Original Recipe version. You fry this chicken using a pressure cooker, so it is not for the faint-hearted! PLEASE read the warning at the end of the recipe about frying in pressure cookers.
6 cups of Crisco cooking oil, or peanut oil which will tolerate higher temps.
1 egg, beaten
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 Tablespoons salt
2 teaspoons black pepper
1 teaspoon Accent Flavor Enhancer
2 frying chickens with skin, each cut into 8 pieces
Step 1. Pour the oil into the pressure cooker and heat over medium heat to about 400*F. (use a deep frying thermometer)
2. In a small bowl, combine the egg and milk and mix well.
3. In a separate bowl, combine the remaining four dry ingredients.
4. Dip each piece of chicken into the milk until fully moistened.
5. Roll the moistened chicken in the flour mixture until completely coated.
6. In groups of 4 or 5, drop the covered chicken pieces into the oil. Place the larger pieces on the bottom and put smaller pieces on the top, or do breasts with thighs/ legs with wings.
7. Lock pressure cooker lid in place.
When steam begins shooting through the pressure release, set a timer for 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, release the pressure according to manufacturer's instructions. Remove the chicken to paper towels or a metal rack to drain. Repeat with the remaining chicken.
WARNING!!!!Some manufacturers of pressure cookers have discouraged frying in their products and warn that doing so could be hazardous. Please check the booklet that came with your cooker before trying this recipe. The alternative is to pan fry or deep fry the chicken for roughly double the specified cooking time, or until the chicken is golden brown.

Re: Recipe Swap

Something New

Instructions for Microsoft's New TV Dinner Product:

You must first remove the plastic cover. By doing so you agree to accept and honor Microsoft rights to all TV dinners. You may not give anyone else a bite of your dinner (which would constitute an infringement of Microsoft's rights). You may, however, let others
smell and look at your dinner and are encouraged to tell them how good it is.

If you have a PC microwave oven, insert the dinner into the oven. Set the oven using these keystrokes:


Then enter:


If you have a Macintosh microwave oven, insert the dinner and press start. The oven will set itself and cook the dinner.

If you have a Unix microwave oven, insert the dinner, enter the ingredients of the dinner found on the package label, the weight of the dinner, and the desired level of cooking and press start. The oven will calculate the time and heat and cook the dinner
exactly to your specification.

Be forewarned that Microsoft dinners may crash, in which case your oven must be restarted. This is a simple procedure.

Remove the dinner from the oven and enter:****.good/tryagainagain/again.crap

This process may have to be repeated. Try unplugging the microwave and then doing a cold reboot. If this doesn't work, contact your oven vendor. The oven itself is obviously on the blink.

Many users have reported that the dinner tray is far too big, larger than the dinner itself, having many useless compartments, most of which are empty. These are for future menu items. If the tray is too large to fit in your oven, you will need to upgrade your equipment. Dinners are only available from registered outlets, and only the chicken variety is currently produced. If you want another variety, call Microsoft Help and they will explain that you really don't want
another variety. Microsoft Chicken is all you really need. Microsoft has disclosed plans to discontinue all smaller versions of their chicken dinners. Future releases will only be in the larger family size. Excess chicken may be stored for future use, but must be saved only in Microsoft approved packaging.

Microsoft promises a dessert with every dinner after '98. However, that version has yet to be released. Users have permission to get thrilled in advance.

Microsoft dinners may be incompatible with other dinners in the freezer, causing your freezer to self-defrost. This is a feature, not a bug. Your freezer probably should have been defrosted anyway.

Re: Recipe Swap

One of the benefits hunters and anglers enjoy from their adventures is the opportunity to eat what they catch and kill. It is hard to explain to a non-consumptive outdoors person the feeling of pride and satisfaction we receive when we sit down to feast on fine venison or fresh fish. At our dinner table we exchange lots of great memories of the outings that have produced so many meals.

For most Americans the closest they come to fresh meat is in their local grocery store. The consumer gives little thought as to where the meat actually came from. More importantly the average American doesn’t appreciate the effort it took to ultimately get the meat ready for purchase in the store. Sadly, to lots of folks they simply believe their meat comes from the store. But outdoors people know better.

There are many fine restaurants around the country that specialize in serving wild game. Customers will usually pay premium prices for these fine meals. I have eaten at some of these specialty restaurants and have tested some mighty fine recipes. Yes, their chefs do a good job of it, but I would put some of our wild game up against theirs any day. There are countless wild game cookbooks and our family has more than we could possibly use. But we will read them and from time to time experiment with new dishes.

Years ago, I thought that we had found the best way to prepare venison back strap. For our family, it was always thinly cut, lightly battered and fried. Simple to do and hard to mess up.

Recently, I learned of a new way to cook back strap. Although it may sound very unusual, it is out of this world. Here is how to do it. Cut back straps a full 2” thick and place them in your favorite marinade,
Remove marinated meat and drain excess liquid from the meat. Wrap cut of meat with bacon. Then sprinkle the upper side with garlic salt. Next, take pulverized freeze-dried instant coffee crystals and lightly dust the salted side. Allow to sit for 20 minutes or until the coffee turns like chocolate syrup. Then turn meat over and do the same on the other side.

Cook over a medium fire for six minutes per side for medium rare, longer for medium or well done. I know this sounds odd, but it will be an unbelievable piece of meat. The garlic salt draws out the blood and the coffee causes it to form a coating that will help the meat retain its moisture.

With this recipe we have come up with a new family favorite. Just another way to enjoy a successful hunt. By the way, I am far from being considered a good cook. Just ask my wife. But with this recipe, it is hard to do it wrong.

1 large Tablespoon flour, and that should be shaken with the water, or it may me lumpy if not.
