Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

Here is something that should be called "well then...that's just unnecessary". At least that's what my OH said about it while her father dipped in for more.

In a more descriptive manner this dish is double roasted pulled pork belly finished in a chipotle-maple-garlic glaze served in a nest of white cheddar and jalapeno polenta with some snow peas for good measure to help one avoid getting scurvy.

The pork belly was first roasted in vinegar, apple juice, salt and pepper for about an hour and twenty minutes. Here is a before picture. yummmmmm...belly!



Once the pork looks 'gray' and somewhat roasted, the surface fat was removed and set to the side. Then the remainder was chopped coarsely with tongs and a knife. Place that back into the oven and this is what it will look like after 20 minutes of high temp roasting.



During the first roast, the glaze was prepared simply enough with half an onion, half bulb of garlic, a bit of tomato sauce, maple syrup, salt and pepper. Once it cooks down a bit, it will eventually look like this (of course the polenta is cooking during this whole time too):



In the end, arrange the bits anyway you'd like on the plate or funnel of your choice. Serve with something that will cut the heat a bit. In this case, some gewurtz did just fine. En guete!

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

i have to show off these gorgeous scrumptious puppies.

i got the idea to try making bagels from this ozzie food blogger not quite nigella, (she has some fun haloween and other recipes) epicurious and the no knead bread

the recipe is a combination taking the easiest steps from each,

you have to start the night before like all no knead recipes and let the yeast do all the work, let the dough rise overnight, wake up the next morning, put a pan of water on the boil (with sugar), roll a piece of dough into a bagel shape, boil it for a minute, put it on a plate, pour sesame seeds over it. put it in a cold oven.
before you take the dogs for a walk, turn oven on, put timer on 35 mins,

when you come back you have bagels!

post-photos-what-you-cook-bake-switzerland-img_0059.jpg

ps. using aldi bio flour and sesame seeds they work out at about 25 rappen a bagel and there are no e's in them, you could probably boil up a bunch and put them in the freezer if you have guests coming to make life easier.

Re: Post photos of what you cook and bake in Switzerland

im not quite sure why i need almost a kilo and half of apple chutney . its not like i buy slabs of cheese and meat anymore but i miss chutneys

post-photos-what-you-cook-bake-switzerland-img_0070.jpg

i noticed some apple windfalls (so I'm calling it 'windfall chutney') on the dog walk on saturday and came back on sunday and stuffed my pockets with them. washed them twice, once to soften the slug juices and once to wash it off.

anyway it was a partial success, two jars got the vacuum seal, one didn't despite heating it again so that one will have to mature in the fridge.

it was a fun sunday project, though there is no dressing this up, you are basically watching water evaporate if you make chutney.

i used this delia smith mango chutney recipe and subbed apples for mangos. it might make a nice test run if you are going to make more expensive mango chutney.

it cost about 3 chf to make this kilo+ of near bio quality chutney (apples were bio and free and bio apple cider vinegar from aldi)
