Post  justmecookin on Fri Apr 25, 2008 7:27 pm

Broiled Oysters with Celery Cream and Virginia Ham

3 dozen fresh oysters, in the shell
Rock salt
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1/2 cup chopped fresh parsley stems
1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3 ounces Virginia ham, diced
3 celery stalks, finely chopped
3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 1/2 cups peeled, chopped celery root
1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon salt

Scrub oysters with a stiff brush under running water. Insert an oyster knife into the hinged edge of each oyster; twist knife handle back and forth until top shell is loose. Slide oyster knife along the bottom of the shell to detach muscle. Remove and discard top shell; drain and reserve 1 cup oyster liquor. Keep oysters in the deeper bottom shell. Arrange oysters over rock salt in a jellyroll pan; chill.

Combine 1 cup oyster liquor, 1 cup cream, and next 5 ingredients in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer, uncovered, about 25 minutes or until thickened. Pour mixture through a wire-mesh strainer into a bowl. Stir in ham, celery, and pepper; set celery cream aside.

Cook celery root in boiling water to cover 10 minutes or until tender; drain. Place celery root, 1/4 cup cream, butter, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth.

Place 1/2 teaspoon celery root puree under each reserved oyster in the shell. Top with 1 teaspoon reserved celery cream. Broil 3 inches from heat for 5 minutes or until bubbly. Serve immediately. Makes 9 servings

Sticky Pudding

Post  justmecookin on Fri Apr 25, 2008 7:46 pm

Sticky Pudding

3/4 pound pitted dates
1/2 cup butter
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
3 large eggs
Sticky sauce
Crème fraîche or sour cream

In a 3- to 4-quart pan, combine dates and 1 1/2 cups water. Bring to a boil over high heat and stir often until most of the liquid is absorbed, 5 to 7 minutes; watch carefully as liquid reduces to avoid scorching. Let cool at least 15 minutes.

Butter and flour a 9-inch square pan. In a bowl, mix 1 1/2 cups flour with baking powder and baking soda. In a food processor, whirl cooked dates until smooth. Add 1/2 cup butter, sugar, eggs, and flour mixture; whirl until well blended. Scrape batter into pan and spread level.

Bake in a 325° oven until cake springs back when lightly pressed in the center and edges begin to pull from pan sides, 30 to 40 minutes. Let cool in pan at least 5 minutes. Invert onto a rack. Cut warm or cool cake in half horizontally.

Rinse and dry baking pan. Pour about 1/2 cup hot sticky sauce into pan. Lay cake bottom, cut side up, in pan. Pour about 2 cups hot sticky sauce evenly over cake. Lay cake top, cut side down, in pan. Pour remaining hot sticky sauce evenly over it.

Let stand at least 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. Invert a flat, rimmed plate over pan; holding containers together, turn over, and lift pan off cake. Cut into rectangles and transfer with a spatula to plates. Add crème fraîche to taste. Makes 10 servings

Sticky sauce. In a 5- to 6-quart pan over high heat, boil 1 1/2 cups whipping cream, 1 1/2 cups sugar, 1/4 cup butter or margarine, and 1/4 cup light corn syrup, stirring frequently, until golden brown, 6 to 8 minutes.

Remove from heat and immediately stir another 1 1/2 cups whipping cream into pan. Return to high heat and stir until sauce comes to a rolling boil, 1 to 2 minutes. Use hot, or let cool, cover, and chill up to 2 days; stir over high heat until hot. Makes 3 1/2 cups.

Oven-Braised Corned Beef Brisket

Post  justmecookin on Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:20 am

Oven-Braised Corned Beef Brisket

1 piece (about 4 lb.) center-cut corned beef brisket
1 lemon, ends trimmed
1 onion (about 1/2 lb.), peeled
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice
6 to 8 whole cloves
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1/4 cup brown sugar

Trim and discard most of the surface fat from brisket. Rinse meat well under cool running water, rubbing gently to release its corning salt.

Lay meat, fattiest side up, in a 2-inch-deep, 11- by 15- or 16-inch roasting pan. Thinly slice lemon (discard seeds) and onion and lay slices over meat. Sprinkle with peppercorns, allspice, and cloves.

Set pan on middle rack in a 325° oven. Pour about 8 cups boiling water around brisket, seal the pan with foil, and bake until meat is very tender when pierced, about 4 hours. Uncover and drain off all but about 1 cup of the liquid. If desired, reserve the lemon and onion slices and rearrange them on top of the meat.

In a small bowl, mix the mustard and brown sugar; spread evenly over meat, on top of the onion-lemon mixture. Broil about 8 inches from heat until the mustard mixture begins to brown, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer the brisket to a platter. Serve hot, warm, or cold; slice meat across the grain. Makes 6 to 8 servings

Mustard Glazed Corned Beef in Ale Broth

Post  justmecookin on Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:34 am

Mustard Glazed Corned Beef in Ale Broth

1 piece center-cut corned beef brisket (3 1/2 to 4 lb.)
8 red or white onions, peeled
18 to 24 baby carrots, rinsed and peeled, or baby-cut carrots, rinsed
18 to 24 potatoes, scrubbed
1 teaspoon black peppercorns
1/2 teaspoon whole allspice
6 whole cloves
1 dried bay leaf
2 cups golden ale or wheat beer
1 head green cabbage, cored and cut into 6 or 8 wedges
1/2 cup sweet-hot mustard such as honey-Dijon

Trim and discard most of the fat from the surface of the brisket. Rinse meat thoroughly under cool running water, massaging to release the salty brine.

In a 5-quart or larger electric slow-cooker, combine onions, carrots, potatoes, peppercorns, allspice, cloves, and bay leaf. Lay meat, fattiest side up, on vegetables. Add the ale. Cover and cook until brisket is very tender when pierced, 8 to 9 hours on low, 6 to 7 hours on high. If possible, turn meat over about halfway through cooking.

With 1 or 2 slotted spoons, transfer brisket, fattiest side up, to a 10- by 15-inch pan. Using hot mitts, drain juice from cooker into a 5- to 6-quart pan; turn heat in slow-cooker to low to keep vegetables warm.

Add cabbage to juice and bring to a boil over high heat. Cover and cook until cabbage is brighter green and barely tender when pierced, 5 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, spread fatty side of brisket with 1/2 cup mustard and broil about 6 inches from heat until surface sizzles, about 3 minutes.

Transfer corned beef, mustard side up, to a large platter, spoon vegetable mixture and cabbage around meat. Pour cooking juices into a pitcher. Slice brisket across the grain. Serve meat and vegetables with juices and additional mustard to add to taste. Makes 6 to 8 servings

English Muffins

Post  justmecookin on Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:44 am

English Muffins

1 cup milk
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons sugar
1 1/4 teaspoons salt
1 package dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110°)
3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Cooking spray

Cook milk in a heavy saucepan over medium-high heat to 180° or until tiny bubbles form around edge (do not boil). Remove from heat. Pour milk into a large bowl. Stir in oil, sugar, and salt. Cool to about 90°.

Dissolve yeast in warm water in a small bowl; let stand 5 minutes. Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Add yeast mixture, 3 cups flour, and egg to milk mixture. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface.

Knead until smooth and elastic (about 10 minutes); add enough of remaining flour, 1 tablespoon at a time, to prevent dough from sticking to hands (dough will feel tacky). Place dough in a large bowl coated with cooking spray, turning to coat top. Cover and let rise in a warm place (85°), free from drafts, 45 minutes or until doubled in size. (Press two fingers into dough.

If indentation remains, the dough has risen enough.) Punch dough down. Divide in half. Working with one portion at a time (cover remaining dough to keep from drying), roll each portion to 1/4-inch thickness. Let dough rest about 5 minutes.

Cut with a 4-inch biscuit cutter into 8 muffins. Place muffins on a large baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining dough. Cover and let rise 30 minutes or until doubled in size. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake at 350° for 7 minutes. Turn muffins over; bake an additional 7 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool. Makes 16 servings

Pear Mincemeat Turnovers

Post  justmecookin on Sat Apr 26, 2008 5:47 am

Pear Mincemeat Turnovers

Filling:
3/4 cup bottled mincemeat
1/2 cup coarsely chopped peeled ripe pear
1 1/2 teaspoons pear nectar or apple juice
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

Pastry:
2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
6 tablespoons ice water
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
2 tablespoons powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup vegetable shortening

Remaining ingredients:
2 tablespoons milk, divided
1 tablespoon granulated sugar

To prepare filling, combine first 5 ingredients; set aside. To prepare pastry, lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine 1/2 cup flour, ice water, and vinegar, stirring with a whisk until well blended to form a slurry.

Combine 1 1/2 cups flour, powdered sugar, and salt in a bowl; cut in shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add slurry; toss with a fork until moist. Gently press mixture into a 4-inch circle.

Place dough on 2 sheets of slightly overlapping plastic wrap on a slightly damp surface. Cover dough with 2 additional sheets of plastic wrap. Roll dough, still covered, into a 16 x 12-inch rectangle. Slide dough onto a baking sheet; place in freezer 10 minutes or until the plastic wrap can be easily removed. (Keep chilled until ready to use.)

Preheat oven to 400°. Remove top sheets of plastic wrap. Place dough, plastic wrap side up, on a flat surface. Remove remaining sheets of plastic wrap. Cut pastry into 12 (4-inch) squares. Place about 1 tablespoon filling into center of each square.

Moisten the edges of squares with 1 tablespoon milk; bring 2 opposite corners together. Press edges together with a fork to seal, forming a triangle. Place triangles on a large baking sheet.

Brush tops with 1 tablespoon milk; sprinkle evenly with granulated sugar. Bake at 400° for 18 minutes or until golden. Serve warm or at room temperature. Makes 12 servings
