cooking of grains. [20 Jun 2008|01:07pm]
voxvox1718


All grains, with the exception of rice, and the various grain meals, require prolonged cooking with gentle and continuous heat, in order to so disintegrate their tissues and change their starch into dextrine as to render them easy of digestion. Even the so-called "steam-cooked" grains, advertised to be ready for use in five or ten minutes, require a much longer cooking to properly fit them for digestion. These so-called quickly prepared grains are simply steamed before grinding, which has the effect to destroy any low organisms contained in the grain. They are then crushed and shredded. Bicarbonate of soda and lime is added to help dissolve the albuminoids, and sometimes diastase to aid the conversion of the starch into sugar; but there is nothing in this preparatory process that so alters the chemical nature of the grain as to make it possible to cook it ready for easy digestion in five or ten minutes. An insufficiently cooked grain, although it may be palatable, is not in a condition to be readily acted upon by the digestive fluids, and is in consequence left undigested to act as a mechanical irritant.

Water is the liquid usually employed for cooking grains, but many of them are richer and finer flavored when milk is mixed with the water, one part to two of water. Especially is this true of rice, hominy, and farina. When water is used, soft water is preferable to hard. No salt is necessary, but if used at all, it is generally added to the water before stirring in the grain or meal.

The quantity of liquid required varies with the different grains, the manner in which they are milled, the method by which they are cooked, and the consistency desired for the cooked grain, more liquid being required for a porridge than for a mush.

All grains should be carefully looked over before being put to cook.

In the cooking of grains, the following points should be observed:

1. Measure both liquid and grain accurately with the same utensil, or with two of equal size.

2. Have the water boiling when the grain is introduced, but do not allow it to boil for a long time previous, until it is considerably evaporated, as that will change the proportion of water and grain sufficiently to alter the consistency of the mush when cooked. Introduce the grain slowly, so as not to stop the sinking to the bottom, and the whole becomes thickened.

3. Stir the grain continuously until it has set, but not at all afterward. Grains are much more appetizing if, while properly softened, they can still be made to retain their original form. Stirring renders the preparation pasty, and destroys its appearance.

In the preparation of all mushes with meal or flour, it is a good plan to make the material into a batter with a portion of the liquid retained from the quantity given, before introducing it into the boiling water. This prevents the tendency to cook in lumps, so frequent when dry meal is scattered into boiling liquid. Care must be taken, however, to add the moistened portion very slowly, stirring vigorously meantime, so that the boiling will not be checked. Use warm water for moistening. The other directions given for the whole or broken grains are applicable to the ground products.

Place the grain, when sufficiently cooked, in the refrigerator or in some place where it will cool quickly (as slow cooling might cause fermentation), to remain overnight.

Seven Tips To Make Your Salsa Recipe Better [14 Jun 2008|12:07pm]
voxvox1718


So, you have what you think is the perfect salsa recipe and it is still not turning out the way it should when you make it? Or maybe you are looking for ways to make your fresh garden salsa even better? Well, here are seven tips to get the best out of your salsa recipe and turn an ordinary salsa into an extraordinary salsa.

1. Have the proper equipment and keep them in good shape. Make sure your knives are sharp and your cutting boards are clean. Keep several large bowls on hand. If you are using tomatoes, avoid metal bowls since the metal will interact with the acids in the tomatoes. A food processor is also a handy gadget to have and will decrease your salsa making time.

2. Always use fresh rip vegetables. Use local produce whenever you can. Vegetables grown in your or your neighbor's garden will always taste better. Explore your local farmers market for fresh produce. If you must buy from your local grocery store, experiment with organic produce if available.

3. Learn to chop food correctly. Take a class on food chopping and you can learn how to quickly and safely chop a wide variety of foods. Practice makes perfect in this regard.

4. Chop your salsa ingredients finely. Every scoop of salsa should have a little bit of each salsa ingredient in it. Finely chopped produce will ensure this. A food processor can help with this but be careful that you don't overdo it.

5. Always use fresh spices. The flavor and strength of spices deteriorate over time. Keep your spices in a lidded container away from sunlight. Write on the spice container the data that you opened it and throw away any spices older than six months. Whole spices can last longer.

6. Always use fresh oils. Like spices, oils lose their flavor over time and some can go rancid if kept too long. Oils kept in a closed container away from sunlight can last for up to 6 months. Oils high in monosaturated fats can last up to a year if stored in the refrigerator.

7. Once you have made your salsa, don't serve it immediately. Store the salsa in a sealed container in your refrigerator for two or more hours, overnight is best. This allows the different flavors in the salsa to "marry" creating a much better flavor. Your patience will be rewarded.

Following these seven tips will help make your fresh salsa the best it can be. Picking a good homemade salsa recipe is only half of what makes a good salsa. With a great salsa recipe, fresh quality ingredients, the right tools in top shape, and a few basic cooking skills you can make salsa that people will talk about for a long time.

Brady Mountain Resort on Lake Ouachita [28 Apr 2006|01:51pm]

jennanne
My family has made reservations at Brady Mountain Resort for our family vacation this year. I've been trying to find some reviews on the resort but so far I've only found two, one good and one bad. We've made reservations for one of the mobile homes, a large cabin, a duplex and a guest room. Has any one stayed at this resort that can tell anything about it?? I will be staying in the mobile home with 6 other people so any information will help me a lot!! Thank you!!!

I'm living in Little Rock. Oringally from Maumelle.

My neighborhood has a small problem. this isn't the place to talk about it, but I feel like this must be done.


I live in a small neighborhood on Fourche Dam Pike, a small street between UPS and that insurance company, used to be Southwest Airlines. It is a 25 Speed Limit Zone. I ask that people not go down my road at any faster then that, please. I am one of the many 16 years of age and younger who live on that road. We have loose pets too. Like, my cat turned 1 year old on Halloween. On the 7th of Febraury, someone ran him over. I again ask you, please, to slow down. I would die if that happened again. please?

Also, my neighborhood is full of animals. please do not drop your unwanted animals in places like my street. that's why there is places like CARE.

Thank you,

SEB

Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture [30 Aug 2005|01:40pm]

apocalypse_of_g
Hello. My name is Guy Lancaster, and I’m the new assistant editor of the Encyclopedia of Arkansas History and Culture, which is a project of the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies, a division of the Central Arkansas Library System. We're working on building a comprehensive reference work for historians, teachers, students, and individuals for the purpose of promoting the study, understanding, and appreciation of Arkansas's heritage. We plan to launch the Encyclopedia online in May of next year with about 1,000 entries, expanding that to somewhere between 3,000 and 5,000 entries when the project reaches its completion date of 2010. In addition, there are plans in the works for a CD-ROM and two-volume print edition.

We are looking for writers willing to compose entries on a wide array of Arkansas-related topics. A list of available topics can be found here (the ones in bold are those currently unassigned to anyone). Also on our website you can find our author guidelines, as well as the means by which to recommend to the editorial staff an author for a specific entry or a subject matter you believe we have overlooked.

Prospective writers do not need to be experts in their respective fields, merely people with an interest in the state and a willingness to do some basic research.

I hope you will take this opportunity to help build a heritage resource that promises to preserve and disseminate the history and culture of Arkansas. If you are interested in taking a particular entry, please e-mail me, and if you have any questions, please contact me at the address below or respond to this post:

|!| Hector Needs a Ride... |!| [21 Apr 2005|03:06am]

EDIT: This transport has been cancelled.  Click on the link for more information.  Thank you!

Hello,

     I'm posting here because we're looking for help through your area.  Below can be found the details for a dog that needs your help desperately to get to the safety of rescue, or to their adoptive homes.  Without the aide of volunteer drivers, this cannot be possible.  Please at least take a look; he has a place to go and someone to care for him, he just needs help getting there.  Thank you.

 

     Hector is a six year old harlequin Great Dane.  He's been particularly hard to place not only because of his breed and therefore size, but also because he is affected by Addison's Disease and thus has special needs.  However, a veterinarian in South Carolina has agreed to care for him for the rest of his life.  Hector needs help getting there, and this will be his SECOND attempt at doing so.  Now traveling through Arkadelphia and Little Rock, AR.

Details here (feel free to comment with any questions you might have either here or there):

Thank you
