KFC Fried Chicken Secret Recipe Kfc fried chicken is legendary, and there must be hundreds of websites and videos claiming to have cracked the secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices. Others get into deep discussions about how the chicken is pressure fried. For the full recipe in printable format, please visit our website http://whats4chow.com/2014/10/07/kfc-fried-chicken-secret-recipe-original-recipe-secret-ingredients-how-to-make-kfc/ This is Episode #178 with Whats4Chow.com - for notifications & updates please subscribe to our channel. In our next episode we will cover KFC wings and KFC Chicken Burger Patties. Over time I have tried many of these copycat recipes and can only say that it was one disappointment after the next. None of them even came close to the real thing. Today I will reveal to you the actual secret behind the legendary taste, aroma and texture of this iconic chicken. Before I continue, I would just like make a point. Whats4Chow.com is the FIRST TO PUBLISH THIS, and I am sure that there will be a load of other channels copying my video within a very short time of this being published. Unfortunately there is nothing I can do to prevent this, but to those free loaders out there that will inevitably copy my work, please have the decency to give our channel and website the credit it deserves for finally decoding the mystery of the world's finest chicken brand. Let's get started by saying that it is not the secret blend of 11 herbs and spices, and it is not the use of pressurized deep fryers, or the type of oil or shortening used to do this. The secret to the insanely good flavor, texture and aroma is in the preparation of the chicken before it even coated. In fact, using this method the chicken tastes very close to the real thing even without the 11 herbs and spices!

In our previous distilling episode we built a basic pot still. Today we're going to distill a batch of fermented wash and learn how to make the cuts or separations between the foreshots, heads, hearts and tails during the run. You can find the printable version on our website http://whats4chow.com/2016/10/30/distilling-alcohol-making-cuts-and-fractions-learning-to-blend-better-alcohol/ This is episode #492 with Whats4Chow.com - please subscribe for notifications and updates. In our previous distilling episode we built a basic pot still. Today we're going to distill a batch of fermented wash and learn how to make the cuts or separations between the foreshots, heads, heats and tails during the run. If you have followed this series, you will remember that sugar wash does not produce methanol, and also only insignificant quantities of acetones and aldehydes. For this reason, if you're distilling sugar wash, the only thing you really need to remove is the foreshot, and even this is not absolutely necessary, but will improve the flavor of your product. Although I am using sugar wash, I am going to demonstrate the cuts as if I were using a fermented mash. By mash, I mean and fermented wash that contains bio-matter, whether this be raisins, grain, spices or even unrefined sugar. As soon as a wash contains biomass, it becomes a mash, and we have larger quantities of acetone, methanol and aldehyde. These need to be removed during the distillation to ensure a safe and pleasant tasting product. Starting with the foreshots, or acetone. The acetone starts emerging from the still when the head temperature reaches 50c or 122f. This is when you turn on the cooling pump. The calculation is simple. For every 5 liters of mash, you will collect 30ml of foreshot. If you're distilling a 25 liter batch, you will collect 150ml of foreshot. This acetone cannot be used for anything and is discarded. From here onwards, the distillate is collected in 100ml fractions. These are measured using your alcohol meter as you go. The heads will contain alcohol levels of over 80%, with a percentage of this comprising methanol, or wood alcohol. When the alcohol reading drops below 80%, your collection of heads is complete. Keep the 100ml heads samples separate and put them aside. Continue distilling and collecting 100ml samples until the alcohol reading drops below 65%. This lot of samples is the good stuff, and is called the hearts. These can be combined and put aside. The next lot of samples is called the tails. You will continue to collect 100ml samples until the acohol level drops below 20%. By this stage the head temperature of the still will be approaching 95c or 203f. Turn the off the heat but leave the cooling system running until the still cools down. Keep the 100ml samples from tails separate and put these aside. Cover all of the distillate with lint free towels and allow this stand ovenrnight. This allows any unpleasant tasting volatiles to evaporate. The following day, sniff and taste each sample of heads, and blend the decent samples with hearts in quantities that you see fit. Repeat this with tails. Any samples that don't get blended into the finished product can be saved and added to your next distilling run. It is important to note that the head temperature of the still must not exceed 95c or 203f. This is how we cut the aldehyde out of the mix. Aldehydes smell and taste terrible and will ruin your blend. As far as the blending process is concerned, this is very much a matter of personal taste... there is no right or wrong blend. After a few batches, your nose and taste will become more adept and your blends will become more and more refined. Most impotantly, have fun, and feel to send any questions through to me via our Youtube Channel.

Apple Jack has been around since the beginning of America. Ice distilled from apple cider there was no need for infrastructure or elaborate equipment, which made it the perfect solution for those times. The term jacked up comes directly from apple jack where the ice distilling process jacks up the alcohol content resulting in an apple brandy with an alcohol content anywhere between 20% and 50% ABV. Today, with the exception of a handful of craft distillers, apple jack is made with a blend of apple cider and commercial alcohol.

This episode is Part 1 where we're going to ferment a high alcohol sugar wash. In part 2, tomorrow, we will distill it using the stock pot distilling technique we looked at in the previous distilling episode. Vodka is by definition pure ethanol in water... it has not distinctive smell or flavor. However, this only true for vodkas that have been distilled using refraction, or column stills. When vodka is distilled using a pot still, or in this case a stock pot still, a portion of the aroma and flavor of the fermented liquid does pass on to the distilled product. This will give every different type of pot stilled vodka its own distinctive taste and aroma. We are going to make a fermented sugar wash which ideal for producing vodka. Sugar wash has become increasingly popular with distillers as it produces no methanol, and insignificant quantities of fusel oils. It is the perfect wash for beginner distillers, and especially when using a stock pot still where it is really inconvenient trying to remove heads and tails during the process.

For the full recipe, Chinese Mock Duck, in printable format, please go to our website http://whats4chow.com/2014/07/12/chinese-mock-duck/ For notifications and updates, please subscribe to our channel. Ingredients To make the gluten: 1kg All-purpose bread flour (strong bread flour) 1 Tsp Salt 550ml Warm water To coat the gluten: ⅓ Cup Tapioca flour (can substitute cornflour) Oil for frying Other: 1 Green Pepper, cut into short strips For the sauce: 100ml Vegetable stock 2 Tbs / 30ml light soy sauce 2 Tsp / 10ml Rice wine 1 Tsp / 5ml Soft brown sugar ½ Tbs / 7.5ml Tapioca flour dissolved in a little water Instructions To make the gluten: Combine the all-purpose flour and salt in a mixing bowl and pour in the warm water. Mix this together with a wooden paddle until a dough starts to come together. Using your hands compress the dough together until all of the flour combines into a single mass. Turn the dough out onto your work surface and knead the dough for 5 minutes until it is smooth and elastic. Place the dough back into the bowl, cover with a damp tea towle and allow this to rest for 60 minutes. Remove the dough from the bowl. Wash the dough under cold running water, pressing, squeezing and pulling the dough as you do this. Continue this action for about 5 minutes until the water runs clear, and you have about 300g of spongy gluten. Squeeze as much water from the gluten as possible, then place this on a platter while you prepare the rest of the ingredients. The other ingredients: Combine the stock, soy sauce, rice wine and sugar in a jug, and stir this until the sugar is totally dissolved. Cut the pepper in to short strips. Mix the ½ tablespoon of tapioca flour with a little water. Measure ⅓ cup tapioca flour into a bowl. To continue: Place the gluten on a cutting board, roll it into a sausage shape and cut it into bite-sized pieces. Dredge the gluten pieces in the tapioca flour, place them on a platter - don't allow them to touch, they will stick together. Heat your wok to smoking hot, add 30ml of oil and fry the gluten in batches until golden brown. Remove from the wok and continue until all of the gluten is cooked. Add a little more oil between batches if necessary. Add the green pepper to the wok and fry for 3 minutes until the edges are starting to brown. Add the sauce mixture to the wok and bring this to a boil. Return all of the gluten to the wok and toss this until everything is coated with the sauce. Pout in the tapioca slurry and continue to stir-fry for 60 seconds, and the sauce is thick and glossy. Remove from the heat, transfer to platters and serve immediately.

Mrs HS Ball's Chutney is one of South Africa's greatest contributions to the culinary world. In SA it is a household name, and it is also exported to North America, the UK, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. This is how to make your own Mrs Balls chutney at home. You can find the printable recipe on our website http://Whats4Chow.com -- or below in this description! This is episode #571 with Whats4Chow.com - please subscribe for notifications and updates. Ingredients 650g Dried peaches 250g Dried Apricots 1 Liter + 1.25 liters Brown grape vinegar 2.5kg White sugar 500g Onion chopped 120g Salt (Kosher, non-iodated) 75ml Cayenne pepper 30ml Dried chilli flakes Instructions To start, place 650g of dried peaches and 250g of dried apricots in a large bowl. Pour a liter of brown grape vinegar over the dried fruit. Stir the fruit around briefly to separate and get everything submerged. Cover the bowl and allow this to stand for 24 hours, giving it a stir every few hours during this time. The following day the fruit will have absorbed almost all of the vinegar. Strain the fruit in a colander, and save any syrup that runs into the catch bowl. Transfer the fruit to your food processor and machine this until almost fine. The texture should resemble that of ground beef. Tip the ground fruit into a bowl, add the reserved syrup and stir this in. To continue, chop 500g of onion, measure 120g of salt, 75ml of cayenne pepper and 30ml or 2 tablespoons of dried chilli flakes. Place all of these along with the ground fruit into a large pot. I am using a digital pressure cooker without the lid. Pour in 1.25 liters of brown grape vinegar and stir until everything is well combined. Pour in 2.5kg of white sugar and stir this until the sugar has dissolved. Bring the por to a boil, reduce the heat to a simmer and allow this to continue cooking for about 2 hours until it has thickened to a syrup, glossy sauce. It will darken substantially during this time as well. Sterilize your bottles in your dishwasher and pour the hot chutney into the hot bottles. Put the lids on and you're done. Enjoy your chutney with any type of curry, with burgers, hot dogs.... in fact just about any food enjoys a splash of Mrs Balls chutney.

Some time ago we launched the first of our KFC series and have been overwhelmed at the response. One of the main questions that arose from this was where to buy saltpetre. This updated version of the recipe uses Prague powder to replaces the saltpetre, the salt and the bicarbonate of soda. Prague powder, or pink curing salt is available worldwide from butchery suppliers, and you may even buy it directly from any butcher that processes cured meats and sausages. Prague powder is not to be confused with instacure which is a totally different formulation and cannot be substituted. Before continuing, if you have not viewed the original video, please do so now as it contains all of the introductory information about the process.

In our previous distilling episode we unboxed and assembled the mighty Grainfather. Today we're going to put it through its paces as we mash a full load of grain to make a classic all-grain whisky. You can find the full transcript on our website http:Whats4Chow.com This is episode #554 with Whats4Chow -Please subscribe for notifications and updates. To make this simple whisky, we need 3 kilograms of peated malt and 4 kilograms of pale malt. You will also need a sachet of Still Spirits whisky distillers yeast, a Still Spirits Turbo clearing kit and 4 kilograms of sugar or dextrose. Before starting, make sure the thermometer housing is properly fastened and that the joint at base of the recirculation riser pipe is secure. Add 20 liters of water to the pot. Set the temperature on the controller to 68c and flip the switch for the element to the boil position. To get everything going, switch the main switch on at the base of the unit. Pour the sugar into the pot and give it good stir until totally dissolved. Position the extendable overflow pipe in the boiler sleeve, place the sleeve in the boiler and fit the overflow stopper to the top of the pipe. This prevents grain from spilling into the overflow pipe as we pour it into the pot. Pour the grain into the pot in small batches, stirring between each addition to make all of the grain is wet and there are dry clumps. Once all of the grain is added, remove the overflow stopper and insert the top mesh plate. Press the plate down until it just touches the mash. Don't go any further as compressing the mash will impede circulation of the wort through the grain. Seat the overflow inlet sleeve onto the overflow pipe. This will keep the perforated plate level. Place the lid on the boiler and attach the recirculation bridge making sure the tube goes through the hole in the lid. Turn on the pump. By this stage the temperature will have stabilized at around 68c and this process needs to continue as is for 60 minutes. Set the switch at the base of the unit to the mashing position. At first the overflow will be very apparent. As the grain gets saturated, more and more of the wort will drop through the perforated plate and will filter through the grain instead going directly through the overflow. After 60 minutes, turn off the pump, allow the recirculation bridge to drain and remover the the recirculation bridge. Remove the lid and use the stainless steel handle to lift the boiler sleeve upwards. Swivel the boiler sleeve and rest the small triangular feet on the rest inside the top of the boiler. at this stage the grain will have settled considerably. Press the upper perforated plate down until it sits on top of the grain. Pour in 5 liters of water to rinse or sparge the grain. Do this a little at a time, as flooding the top grain will cause the process to block. Once all of the water has been added, allow the grain to drain for 60 minutes. Once the draining has completed, re-attach the recirculation bridge with the bridge facing outwards. Place the plastic tube in the fermentation vessel and turn on the pump. Allow the wort to cool to 35c then add the Still Spirits whisky yeast. Give it a good stir, then screw on the lid with the airlock in place. Transfer the fermentation vessel to a warm shady place to ferment. Depending on the ambient temperature, this could take anything from 7 to 10 days to complete. To purger the pump on the Grainfather, fill the boiler with 15 liters of water. Place an empty container under the recirculation pipe and switch on the pump. This will effectively wash out the pump and the recirculation riser and bridge. Rinse out the boiler and wash the inside with a mild detergent. Rinse again and you're done. Join us next week for part 2 of this whisky saga when we clarify the wort and distill this in the Grainfather using the alembic lid.
