  • 4 chuletas de cerdo gruesas (alrededor de 3 libras)
  • 4 cucharadas de harina
  • 2 cucharadas de mantequilla o margarina, derretida
  • 1 1/2 tazas de uvas de California, rojas o negras, enteras
  • 1/3 taza de miel de abeja

  3. Retire la sartén del fuego y agregue las uvas, la miel, la canela, los clavos de olor, el jengibre, la sal y la pimienta. Cubra y coloque en el horno. Estofar lentamente de 50 a 60 minutos, o hasta que el cerdo esté tierno. Retire la carne de cerdo de la sartén y manténgala caliente. Retire la salsa de la sartén del exceso de grasa.

Tarta de queso con uvas al estilo vasco

Tiempo de preparación: 15 minutos, más enfriamiento y refrigeración
Tiempo de cocción: 40 minutos
Porciones: 12

  • 2 tazas de uvas verdes de California, divididas
  • 1/4 taza, más 2/3 taza, azúcar granulada, dividida
  • 2 1/2 cucharadas de maicena
  • 2 pizcas grandes de sal kosher
  • 21 onzas de queso crema, a temperatura ambiente
  • 1 taza de crema espesa o crema de leche, fría
  • 4 huevos grandes, a temperatura ambiente
  • 2 cucharadas de licor de naranja (opcional)
  1. Caliente el horno a 425 F con la rejilla en el centro. Use una hoja de papel pergamino de 12 por 16 pulgadas para forrar un molde desmontable de 9 pulgadas en el centro. Presione el papel en el borde inferior de molde y alise las arrugas alrededor de los lados. Coloque el molde en una bandeja para hornear poco profunda.
  2. En una mini licuadora o procesador de alimentos, mezcle 1 taza de uvas, 1/4 taza de azúcar, maicena y sal a velocidad alta hasta que quede suave, aproximadamente por 1 minuto.
  3. En un tazón de una batidora eléctrica equipada con paleta, bata el queso crema y el azúcar restante hasta que quede esponjoso, 1-2 minutos. Con la batidora a velocidad media, vierta gradualmente la crema espesa; raspar los lados y batir a alta velocidad hasta que la mezcla parezca crema batida suave, aproximadamente 1 minuto. Batir los huevos, uno a la vez, raspando cada vez que incorporas uno. A velocidad media, agregue gradualmente la mezcla de puré de uva; raspe y mezcle hasta que esté bien mezclado, por 1 minuto.
  4. Vierta la masa en el molde preparado, llévelo al horno y hornee de 38 a 40 minutos hasta que la tarta esté inflada y la parte superior esté dorada como caramelo. Aparecerán grietas alrededor de los bordes y la tarta se tambaleará cuando se toque suavemente con el dedo. Coloque el molde para tartas en una bandeja para hornear sobre una rejilla para que se enfríe. La tarta se hundirá a la mitad de su altura. Enfríe a temperatura ambiente, 1-2 horas, luego refrigere sin tapar. No saque la tarta del molde hasta que esté bien fría, al menos 5 horas o toda la noche.
  5. Corte las uvas restantes en mitades o en rodajas. En un tazón pequeño, combine las uvas con el licor de naranja, si lo desea, y reserve.
  6. Cuando esté listo para servir, retire el lado de la sartén. Retire con cuidado el papel pergamino arrugado del costado de la tarta de queso y luego pásela a un plato para servir quitando el papel del fondo de la tarta y debajo del molde mientras tira suavemente de la tarta hacia el plato y fuera del papel.
  7. Adorne la parte superior de la tarta de queso con la mezcla de licor de uva, si lo desea, o con uvas frescas. Corte la tarta en triángulos con un cuchillo delgado y afilado.

Nota: La tarta de queso se puede preparar hasta con 2 días de anticipación. Una vez que la tarta esté bien fría, cubra el recipiente con una envoltura de plástico hasta que esté lista para servir.

Sidra caliente de uva con especias

  • 1 canela en rama
  • 2 anís estrellado (opcional)
  • 1 naranja grande
  • 6 onzas de ron ámbar
  1. En una cacerola grande, mezcle 5 tazas de uvas con agua, miel, canela y anís estrellado, si lo desea. Lleve la mezcla a ebullición a fuego medio-alto, reduzca el fuego a medio-bajo, cubra y cocine a fuego lento hasta que las uvas estén tiernas, 50-60 minutos. Deje enfriar por 15 minutos.
  2. Coloque un colador de malla mediana sobre el tazón y vierta la mezcla de uvas. Presione suavemente sobre los sólidos para extraer el jugo de la fruta de aproximadamente 2 tazas de sidra de uva.
  3. Con el pelador, pelar una tira grande de cáscara de naranja y añadirla al zumo caliente. Dejar enfriar, tapar y refrigerar.

Food Safety Tips for Game Day

Published

on

/PRNewswire/ — Super Bowl Sunday is coming up and you may be planning a party with friends and family. These parties often involve finger foods, communal dishes, and treats that are left out for long periods of time—which can lead to foodborne illness (also known as food poisoning).  Don’t let foodborne illness ruin the fun. Check out these tips from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and learn how you can keep your food safe.

Food Safety Tips for Game Day

CLEAN

  • Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food and after using the bathroom, changing diapers, and handling pets.
  • Wash your cutting boards, dishes, utensils, and counter tops with hot soapy water after preparing each food item.
  • Rinse fresh fruits and vegetables under running tap water, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten. Scrub firm produce with a clean produce brush.

SEPERATE

  • Separate raw meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs from other foods in your shopping cart, grocery bags, and refrigerator.
  • Use one cutting board for fresh produce and a separate one for raw meat, poultry, and seafood.
  • Never place cooked food on a plate that previously held raw meat, poultry, seafood, or eggs unless the plate has been washed in hot, soapy water.
  • Don’t reuse marinades used on raw foods unless you bring them to a boil first.
  • If baking, make sure that no raw flour is on surfaces that contact other foods.

COOK

  • Use a food thermometer to ensure the safety of meat, poultry, seafood, and egg products. These foods must be cooked to a safe minimum internal temperature to destroy any harmful bacteria.
  • When cooking in a microwave oven, cover food, stir, and rotate for even cooking. If there is no turntable, rotate the dish by hand once or twice during cooking. Always allow standing time, which completes the cooking, before checking the internal temperature with a food thermometer.

CHILL

  • Refrigerate or freeze meat, poultry, eggs, seafood, and other perishables within 2 hours of cooking or purchasing. Refrigerate within 1 hour if the temperature outside is above 90° F.
  • Divide large amounts of leftovers into shallow containers for quicker cooling in the refrigerator.

SERVE

  • Keep cold foods chilled to 40 °F or below and hot foods heated to 140 °F or above.
  • If you’re planning a buffet and aren’t sure how quickly the food will be eaten, keep serving portions small. Prepare a number of small platters and dishes ahead of time and replace the serving dishes with the fresh ones throughout the party.
  • Don’t add new food to an already filled serving dish. Instead, replace nearly empty serving dishes with freshly filled ones.
  • Watch the clock with leftovers. Whether you’re sending “doggie bags” home with guests or are saving them for yourself, leftovers should be refrigerated as soon as guests arrive home and/or within 2 hours!

Today is ‘NATIONAL HOT CHOCOLATE DAY!’

Published

on

Each year on January 31st, National Hot Chocolate Day warms up people across the country by celebrating the timeless cold-weather beverage.

January 31, 2023 is National Hot Chocolate Day

Hot chocolate, also known as hot cocoa or drinking chocolate, is a heated drink consisting of shaved chocolate, melted chocolate or cocoa powder, heated milk or water, and usually a sweetener like whipped cream or marshmallows. Hot chocolate made with melted chocolate is sometimes called drinking chocolate, characterized by less sweetness and a thicker consistency.

The first chocolate drink is believed to have been created by the Maya around 2,500–3,000 years ago, and a cocoa drink was an essential part of Aztec culture by 1400 AD, by which they referred to as xocōlātl.[2] The drink became popular in Europe after being introduced from Mexico in the New World and has undergone multiple changes since then. Until the 19th century, hot chocolate was used medicinally to treat ailments such as liver and stomach diseases.

Hot chocolate is consumed throughout the world and comes in multiple variations, including the spiced chocolate para mesa of Latin America, the very thick cioccolata calda served in Italy and chocolate a la taza served in Spain, and the thinner hot cocoa consumed in the United States. Prepared hot chocolate can be purchased from a range of establishments, including cafeteriasfast food restaurantscoffeehouses and teahouses. Powdered hot chocolate mixes, which can be added to boiling water or hot milk to make the drink at home, are sold at grocery stores and online. (wikipedia)
