Homemade Ice Cream in 5 Minutes
 
03:35
Love homemade ice cream but hate the fuss? This easy hack gives you DIY ice cream in just a matter of minutes. You'll be eating homemade ice cream all summer as no ice cream maker is needed. RECIPE: http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/5-minute-ice-cream-no-ice-cream-maker-needed/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS: ½ cup whole milk ½ cup cream ¼ cup sugar ½ teaspoon vanilla extract 1 cup rock salt Ice INSTRUCTIONS: 1. Add 1/2 cup whole milk, 1/2 cup cream, 1/4 cup sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract to a mixing cup and stir until well combined. 2. Add the mixture to a small zipper bag. Now, this is very important. I am not going to advocate any sorta brand here but you definitely want a quality bag. You are going to shake the hell out of this for 5 minutes and, well, if the bag breaks open, it’s totally going to suck. 3. Now to create the ice cream maker. You just need another zipper bag, one that is much larger than the bag with your ice cream mix in it. And you want to fill that bag with a couple handfuls of ice and about half of the rock salt. The same applies here… you want a quality bag that isn’t going to blow up. 4. Now place the smaller bag inside the larger bag. Cover it with more ice and rock salt. 5. Now the fun part! And, what better way to earn your ice cream than a few minutes of exercise. Wrap the bag in a towel, because it is freaking cold, and shake it for 5 minutes or until the liquid in the smaller bag turns into ice cream. 6. You can scoop it out but honestly, just eat it out of the bag. It is easier. Enjoy!

Easy Cheese Sauce Recipe
 
01:58
Homemade cheese sauce is easy to make, promise. This simple recipe, made with Parmesan and Gruyère, is perfect on pasta, veggies, or for mac and cheese. RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/simple-cheese-sauce/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 1/2 cup gruyere cheese, more for topping 1/4 cup cheddar cheese, more for topping 1/4 cup parmesan, more for topping 1 tablespoon butter 1 tablespoon all-purpose flour 1 cup milk INSTRUCTIONS 1 Create a roux by warming the two tablespoons of butter in a large skillet and adding one tablespoon of flour. Whisk well until all of the flour is incorporated. If you like your sauce on the thicker side, use 2 tablespoons of flour. 2 Slowly add in 1 cup of milk. Once the flour, butter and milk have combined, add 1/2 cup of Gruyere, 1/4 Cup Cheddar, and 1/4 Cup Parmesan. 3 At this point, the sauce should be fairly thick. If you wish for it to be thicker, bring the cheese sauce to a slight boil and then remove it from the heat. If you want to thin it out a bit, add more milk. But do it sloooowly. 4 Now it is ready to enjoy! I used this sauce for a gnocchi mac n cheese. Yum!

Mexican Bulldog Margarita Recipe
 
03:12
A homemade blended margarita with a Corona beer flipped up inside of it. This cocktail recipe, made with fresh citrus, is as tasty as it is festive. RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/frosty-mexican-bulldog-margarita/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 5 cups ice 1 cup Tequila ½ cup Grand Marnier 5 limes, more for garnish 1 orange 1 cup simple syrup 6 beer, Corona ⅓ cup coarse salt INSTRUCTIONS 1 Place 5 limes and 1 orange–which should be at room temperature–on the counter and roll them with your hand, back and forth, while applying pressure. Be careful, you don’t want to break them open, do it semi-gently. They’ll feel like a sem-filled water balloon when ready. This way the citrus will yield more liquid when you juice them. 2 Juice the limes and the orange in a large measuring cup, then add in 1 cup of tequila, 1/2 cup of grand marnier, and simple syrup. Mix together. 3 Pour 1/3 cup of coarse salt into a shallow bowl. Using one of the juiced limes, swipe the outer rim of one of your glasses. Swivel the glass upside down in the salt until the rim is covered. Repeat for each glass. 4 Add a heaping cup of ice to the blender and just enough of the margarita mixture that the ice is not covered. Blend, adding more ice or margarita mix until the desired thickness is achieved. 5 Pour the frozen margarita into a salt-rimmed glass, pop open a Corona, and place it upside down in the glass, submerging it into the margarita. Repeat for each glass. Now get that party started and enjoy!

Garlic Herb Stuffed Brussels Sprouts Recipe
 
05:36
A tasty appetizer recipe for Brussels sprout lovers (and haters). Stuffed with garlic, ricotta cheese, and herbs, such as basil and sage, these sprouts are amazing! RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/garlic-and-herb-stuffed-brussels-sprouts/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 15 very large Brussels sprouts 1 cup whole milk ricotta 1 cup Parmesan, shredded ½ cup panko bread crumbs 3 Cloves garlic, minced 1 tablespoon dried thyme 1 tablespoon dried basil 1 teaspoon dried marjoram 1 teaspoon dried sage 1 teaspoon sea salt A Pinch of pepper Olive oil INSTRUCTIONS 1 They say size doesn’t matter, but it does. Well, it matters here. The key to this recipe is 15 large Brussels sprouts. I usually buy the tiniest ones I can find. But for this one, you want them supersized. After you wash them, trim the ends and then halve them. 2 I know stuffing Brussels sprouts sounds like a pain in the rear, and if you skip this next step, it will be. We need to blanch these babies. So fill a large deep pan with water, bring it to a boil and add the sprouts. You want to add them cut-side down, since we are doing this to make coring them easier. Let them cook for 1-2 minutes and remove them and let them cool. 3 I suggest you watch the video for this next step. I go through how to quickly core the Brussels sprouts in just a few minutes. 4 Finely chop the cored Brussels sprouts pieces. We are going to saute them in some olive oil along with three cloves of garlic, minced, over a medium-high heat. Cook until the chopped sprouts are tender and the whole mixture is aromatic. Yum! 5 Mix the cooked garlic and sprout mixture along with 1 cup of whole milk ricotta, 1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs, 1 cup of parmesan cheese, 1 tablespoon of dried thyme, 1 tablespoon of dried basil, 1 teaspoon of dried marjoram and 1 teaspoon of dried sage. Add in some of the salt and taste the mixture. Ideally, you want it to taste a bit overly salted because it will be less salty once they are baked. So you’ll need to experiment a bit here. 6 Using a small spoon, fill the Brussels sprouts with the stuffing. Overfill them. This stuff is good! 7 Bake the stuffed Brussels sprouts for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees, or until the caps are crispy and burnt. Enjoy!

Bourbon-Caramel Dipping Sauce Recipe (Corn Syrup Free)
 
03:50
If you aren't going to eat caramel dipped apples anymore, you might as well goes balls out and make your dipping sauce full on adult oriented...just add bourbon! Now, I really wanted a sauce that was free of corn syrup, and a bit more natural in its creation. This is it! So yummy. 1 1/2 cup granulated sugar 1/3 cup water 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice 1/3 cup heavy cream 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract Add the sugar, water and lemon juice to a heavy-bottomed sauce pan. Cover and warm the mixture over a low heat until the sugar is dissolved. Bring the mixture to a low simmer, uncovered, over a medium-low heat until it turns a light amber color (this should take about 5-7 minutes and the mixture will be just under 300 degrees F). Watch the mixture carefully! When it turns a medium amber remove it from the heat immediately. Add the cream and return the mixture to the stove over a low heat. Add in the vanilla and bourbon, mixing well. Let cool slightly and serve. Here is some fun info on the science of candy http://www.exploratorium.edu/cooking/candy/sugar.html

Avocado Fried Egg Recipe
 
01:38
An “egg in the hole” breakfast recipe with an over-easy egg fried up inside an avocado. And because it is a toast-free recipe, it is also gluten free! RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/avocado-fried-egg/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 1 Haas avocado 4 small eggs Olive oil INSTRUCTIONS 1. Slice and pit the avocado. Now, if you are just making this recipe for yourself, be sure to watch my video on How to Keep Avocados Fresh for a Week. I love avos but they are so pricey that you don’t want to waste them. And with my quick tip on storing them, you don’t have to eat them all in one sitting (though I often do). FACT: All Hass avocado trees descend from a single “mother tree” raised by a mail carrier named Rudolph Hass, of La Habra Heights, California. It’s a mystery to what species the Hass tree actually descends from. Rudolph Hass patented his tree back in 1935 which then died of root rot in September of 2002. 2. Cut the avocado into slices about 1/2″ thick. I leave the skin on. I like the presentation on the final product and it kinda keeps everything together when you flip the egg. It’s a personal choice. Try both ways and let me know what you prefer. 3. I use large farm eggs so, using a biscuit cutter, I cut out a bit more space for the egg. I just mash up the extra and serve it with this dish. Or eat it right there if you are hungry. Okay, that’s really what I did. 4. Warm a little bit of olive oil in a small frying pan over a medium-high heat. Add the avocado slice and crack an egg inside of it, cooking the egg til the whites are firm and cooked all the way through. Then flip it and cook the top. 5. Serve with some fresh black pepper and sea salt. Maybe some cilantro?

Avocado Gazpacho Soup Recipe
 
02:23
I admit, i avoided gazpacho for years. I could not get past the idea of cold soup. It just seemed wrong. Soup should be warm, cozy and comforting; not cold. One day I decided to give it a whirl and I immediately wanted to kick myself for not eating it sooner. On a warm day, gazpacho can be such a treat. This Avocado & Heirloom Tomato Gazpacho is just that. Big on flavor, slightly spicy and ready for summer. Ingredients 5 Cups juicy and green heirloom tomatoes, cubed 2 Avocados 1 Lime ¼ Cup Basil ¼ Cup Cilantro 5 Tarragon 2 cloves of Garlic 1 Serrano Pepper Salt to taste 1. Okay, for the 5 cups of heirloom tomatoes, you don't need all of them to be green. But you probably want most of them to be green and yellow as red and darker tomatoes will make this soup look funky. But that only matters if you are into the food aesthetic. If not, use whatever tomatoes you have on hand. 2. Run the 5 cups through the food processor, until super smooth. Transfer it to a large mixing bowl, reserving 1/2 cup. If you want, you can run this through a sieve to remove the larger chunks but I personally like the texture. Up to you, but don't do it the wrong way! 3. Finely chop the 1/4 cup basil, 1/4 cup cilantro, 5 tarragon leaves, 2 cloves garlic, and serrano pepper in the food processor, adding it to the tomato puree. 4. Halve and pit the 2 avocados, then add them to the food processor, along with the juice of one lime and 1/2 cup of tomato puree. The reason for the tomato puree is that avocados do not blend easily without a little liquid help. 5. Add the avocado puree to the tomato and herb mixture and mix it well. Then chill it in the fridge for an hour or more.

Spicy Butternut Squash & Black Bean Burger Recipe
 
04:10
There's nothing quite like a messy burger, is there? I love them. And what I enjoy most about veggie burgers is the endless possibility of combinations. They are such a great way to increase your vegetable intake, even with veggies you might not like. This burger is a favorite. It is slightly sweet, earthy and pretty spicy. 4 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced into 1/2 inch pieces (saving the seeds) 1 can of black beans, drained and rinsed 1/4 cup of uncooked quinoa 1/2 cup of water 1/4 cup red onion, minced 3 cloves of garlic, minced 1 serrano chile, minced 1 tablespoon ancho chili powder 2 teaspoons ground cumin 1/4 teaspoon ground coriander 1/4 cup pistachios, finely chopped 1 tablespoon sea salt 1 cup panko bread crumbs. Olive oil 1. Toss the butternut squash with just enough olive oil to cover and place it in a baking dish. In a pre-heated oven at 400 degrees F, roast the butternut squash for about 45 minutes or until it is super tender. 2. Wash and clean the butternut squash seeds and then fry them in a small frying pan over a medium-high heat with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. When they just begging to brown, transfer them to a paper towel lined colander and finish them with sea salt. 3. Bring 1/2 cup of water to a boil. Add the quinoa, reducing it to a simmer and cover. Cook for about 10 minutes until the quinoa is tender. 4. Add the roasted butternut squash to a large mixing bowl and mash. Add in the black beans and mash them too. Fold in the cooked quinoa, chili powder, ground cumin, coriander, butternut squash seeds, pistachios, and salt. 5. Lightly sweat the red onion, garlic and serrano chiles in a small sauce pan with one tablespoon of olive oil over a medium heat. Fold that into the mixture. 6. Fold in the bread crumbs. 7. Using a biscuit cutter, make your veggie patties. You don't have to do this but I am a bit anal retentive. 8. Add one tablespoon of olive oil to a cast iron skillet and warm it over a medium-high heat. Fry the burgers til browned on each side, adding more oil as needed. Enjoy!

Best Oven Poached Eggs
 
03:21
A kitchen hack that makes it easy to poach a dozen eggs all at once. With this cooking tip, you’ll have perfect poached eggs in just minutes. It’s foolproof! INGREDIENTS Dozen eggs 3/4 cup water 1/4 teaspoon white vinegar 1/2 teaspoon salt INSTRUCTIONS Best if you use fresh eggs. Easy way to tell, look at the number on the egg carton. 001 is Jan 1 and 365 is Dec 31, this is a Julian date. This is the day the egg was cleaned and packed. So if it says 031 and the date is Feb 1st, those are fresh eggs. Eggs last about 5 weeks past this date. Mix water, vinegar and salt in a measuring cup. Divide the water in the muffin tin, about 1 tablespoon of water per cup. Crack an egg into each cup. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes. So what you are looking for, white is firm but egg is runny. Follow: https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstone http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone https://plus.google.com/+jerryjamesstone

Guacamole Deviled Egg Recipe

In this video I show you how to make guacamole deviled eggs. If you love avocado deviled eggs, you must try this appetizer recipe is easy to make, tasty, and just looks delicious. RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/guacamole-deviled-eggs/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 6 organic farm eggs 1 avocado 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped (more for garnish) 1 teaspoon serrano chile, minced 1 teaspoon mustard seeds, finely ground 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice 1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1/4 olive oil New Mexico chile powder (for garnish) INSTRUCTIONS 1. Carefully place the eggs in a sauce pan and fill the pan with enough water to cover the eggs by 1-inch. 2. Bring the water to a boil over a medium-high heat. Once it is boiling, turn of the heat and remove the eggs from the stove. Cover them and let them sit for about 20 minutes. 3. To stop the eggs from over cooking and turning the yolk gray (like I did because I got distracted by Hulu), empty the hot water and replace it with cold water. 4. Once the eggs are cool enough to touch, crack each egg on each end by firmly tapping it on a hard surface. Placing the side of the egg on the counter, roll it with the palm of your hand while slightly applying pressure. The shell should crackle all over but be careful to not squish the egg. Place the egg in a bowl of warm water and the shell should slide right off. 5. Half the eggs, placing the cooked yolks into a mixing bowl. Add one tablespoon chopped cilantro, one teaspoon of minced serrano chile, one teaspoon of ground mustard seed, one tablespoon of lemon juice, 1/4 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil. Mix it well. 6. Half the avocado, pit it and mash it in a separate mixing bowl. 7. Fold together the egg mixture and the mashed avocado. I like the yellow and green contrast so I suggest not overdoing it here. 8. Scoop heaping spoonfuls of the mixture into the halved eggs. You can use a pastry bag if you want it to be all pretty and stuff, but ain't nobody got time for that! I like the messier look and plus I want to get to eating these eggs! Top with some chile powder and cilantro. Enjoy!

Cucumber & Green Tea Mojito Recipe
 
01:48
It's that time of year when almost every food item seems to turn green. There's green beer, green cakes, green eggs, and even green pizza (ewe!). I dunno, it seems that green occurs naturally in so many foods that you don't really have to dye anything. Sure, a green beer is nice but I am going to stick to this mojito. It's always green and always tasty! 1 1/2 cup rum 4 limes, juiced 20 mint leaves 1 cup green tea lime wedges 8 cucumber slices splash of club soda 3/4 cup sugar 3/4 cup water 1 cucumber, sliced 1. First we are going to make a cucumber simple syrup. Combine the 3/4 cup sugar and 3/4 cup water in a small sauce pan along with the slices of cucumber. Warm it over a medium-high heat and simmer until the sugar is dissolved--this makes 1 cup total simple syrup. 2. Once the simple syrup has cooled to room temperature, strain out the cucumber and transfer it to the refrigerator to chill. NOTE: You might want to make more than just one cup. This syrup would be great in many beverages, like a limeade. The general rule for simple syrup is that you need 75% of both sugar and water for whatever measurement you want. Since I wanted 1 cup total for this recipe, I used 3/4 cup of each. 3. Make your green tea but make sure to chill it before using it in this cocktail. You don't want to serve your guests a warm mojito, right? I am assuming that you are going to share this four-serving recipe with others. Am I wrong? 4. Add five of the mint leaves to a cocktail mixer and the juice from half of a lime, then muddle the mint. Now, don't beat the mint up. Muddling is about releasing the essential oils of the herb into the drink. You don't want to go all Ike Turner on it. 5. Now add the remaining juice from that lime, a heaping 1/3 cup of rum, 1/4 cup of green tea and 1/4 cup of the cucumber simple syrup. This is going to be a very smooth mojito, by the way, and very refreshing. Play with the green tea and cucumber measurements to take it in different directions. Or just exclude one? You cannot go wrong. 6. Mix and serve over ice with cucumber slices, more mint and a lime wedge. Enjoy!

Cranberry Sauce & Brie Grilled Cheese Sandwich
 
02:21
How to make a delicious grilled cheese sandwich with tangy triple cream brie and oven baked cranberry sauce. This is a great leftovers recipe for Thanksgiving and Christmas. 2 slices of Italian batard bread (or any you have on hand) 1 ounce of brie, room temperature Heaping spoonful of Boozy & Baked Cranberry Sauce 1 tablespoon of butter, softened 1. While it seems to say, "slice bread" for a grilled cheese recipe. I find that the bread makes the sandwich. I really love this Italian batard. It was firm and chewy, soaked up the butter and was just delicious when grilled. You don't have to use it but you would be wrong if you didn't. I kid! 2. Softened butter works best on a grilled cheese. I always keep a stash of whipped butter in the fridge, just let it sit out and then smear it all over the bread. You only need to butter one side of each slice. This is the side that will be grilled. 3. Smear the brie and roasted cranberries onto the side of the bread that is not buttered. And sandwich it with another buttered slice. All this butter and cheese is making me hungry! 4. In my opinion, a grilled cheese sandwich is best done in a iron skillet. You don't need it to be very hot. Turn the stove to a medium-high heat, and once the skillet is warmed, add the sandwich. Let it sit for two minutes and then flip it. It should come out perfect every time!

RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/tropical-avocado-popsicle/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 2 Avocados 2 Limes 1 ½ cups basic simple syrup ¾ cup Coconut Milk 20 fresh tarragon leaves INSTRUCTIONS 1. Take the 20 tarragon leaves and add them to a cocktail mixer. Add 1 tablespoon of the simple syrup and muddle the tarragon, releasing all of those tasty essential oils. Remember, you are not trying to beat up the herb or blend it, you just want to give it a good rub (that's what she said!). 2. After you have muddled the herb, add the remaining simple syrup and set aside. 3. Add the fruit from the two avocados along with the two limes juiced to your food processor and puree them. If you need to know how to safely pit an avocado, watch my how-to video. 4. Mix the pureed avocado, the 3/4 cup coconut milk and the 1 1/2 cups of tarragon-infused simple syrup to a large measuring cup. You should have nearly 3 cups of liquid. 5. Divide the mixture among the popsicle mold. I left a little room at the top and topped them off with some sweetened coconut milk. It was just 1/8 cup coconut milk and 1/8 cup simple syrup. It was just for texture. It makes them pretty right? Enjoy!

RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/old-fashioned-marshmallows/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 2 tablespoons gelatin (2 envelopes Knox) 1 cup cold water, divided 2 cups granulated sugar ½ cup powdered sugar ¼ teaspoon salt 2 teaspoons vanilla extract INSTRUCTIONS 1 In a small bowl, combine the gelatin and half of the water. This part is pretty disgusting. The powdered gelatin gels rather quickly and you are left with this transparent, yet yellowish, substance that doesn’t move. It doesn’t even jiggle. Seriously, the smartest thing Jell-o ever did was having people skip this step. It would’ve taken a lot more than Bill Cosby to sell this stuff if they hadn’t. 2 Take a cookie sheet or cutting board and cover it with a thin layer of the powdered sugar. I might add that there is really no better way to dirty a clean kitchen than making marshmallows. Seriously! Powdered sugar and gooey marshmallow cream get everywhere. And just when you think you’ve cleaned it all up, it pops up like a week later–it’s like an STD! 3 In a medium sauce pan, combine the granulated sugar and the remaining water and cook it over a medium heat until the sugar is fully dissolved. 4 Add in gelatin (this stuff is gross!) and bring the mixture to a boil over a medium high heat, then removing it from the burner. Be careful, this stuff puffs up when it boils and if you don’t keep an eye on it, you’ll have a hot mess on your hands in no time–literally. 5 Add in the salt and vanilla extract. 6 Transfer the mixture to a stand mixer and whisk it on low for about a minute or two. This is to cool the mixture as you should see a lot of steam exiting the mixing bowl. 7 When the amount of steam leaving the mixing bowl has subsided a bit, turn the speed up to full throttle. Do this for about 10 minutes, or until the mixture has doubled in size. You’ll know it is done because it will be very thick and creamy but not so stiff you cannot work with it. 8 Pour the mixture onto the sugar-covered flat surface and let it cool. When it has cooled it will be tacky but not fully stick to your finger. At this point, dust the surface with the remaining powdered sugar. 9 Now cut the marshmallow into whatever shapes you like. More often than not, squares are the best as they will waste the least amount of marshmallow but I used a cookie cutter this time around. I think I may also do some hearts for Valentine’s day. Enjoy!

A sour cream-based creamsicle recipe made with fresh mission figs and whole vanilla bean. If you love ice pops, this is your next dessert recipe. RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/vanilla-fig-sour-cream-popsicles/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 1 ½ cups milk ½ cup sugar 1 vanilla bean 1 ½ cups sour cream 5 figs INSTRUCTIONS 1 Slice the figs so they are rather thick, like the thickness of two quarters. 2 Seed the vanilla bean by pressing it flat against a cutting board and then slicing it in half. Using a butter knife, slide it across the inside of each half, scraping out the seeds. 3 Add the milk and sugar to a medium sauce pan and warm the mixture over a low heat, just until the sugar is fully dissolved. 4 Add the vanilla bean and then the sour cream. Whisk the mixture until it completely smooth. 5 Transfer the mixture to a large measuring cup and let it cool in the refrigerator for about an hour. 6 Fill each popsicle mold with about an inch of the sour cream mixture and insert the popsicle sticks. Let set in the freezer for about an hour. 7 Divide the sliced figs among the molds and fill with the remaining mixture. 8 Place popsicles in the freezer until solid. Enjoy!

Fried Apple Rings Recipe
 
03:19
Move over onion rings! This fried apple recipe uses fresh granny smith apples to create a savory and sweet appetizer (or is it dessert). It goes both ways. RECIPE http://jerryjamesstone.com/recipe/fried-apple-rings/ SOCIAL MEDIA https://facebook.com/jerryjamesstonedotcom http://twitter.com/jerryjamesstone INGREDIENTS 1 egg 1 cup buttermilk 1 cup all-purpose flour ¼ teaspoon baking powder ¼ teaspoon salt 4 large Granny Smith apples Vegetable oil Sea salt INSTRUCTIONS 1 Combine 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1/4 teaspoon of baking powder and salt. Set aside. 2 Whisk 1 egg and then whisk in 1 cup of buttermilk. 3 Slice 4 large Granny Smith apples into 1/4 inch thick slices using varying sized biscuit cutters to make “rings” out of the slices, discarding smallest circle containing core. 4 Heat oil to 375 degrees F. (Caution: Do not let the oil get too hot or your rings will burn quickly. If rings are cooking too quickly, lower the heat of the oil a bit.) Combine the liquid and dry ingredients while the oil heats up. 5 Dip apple rings into batter, removing any excess. A little is okay, it gives them a nice swirly look. Cook in oil in small batches, turning frequently to monitor browning. 6 When the rings are golden brown, remove to a wire rack and sprinkle with sea salt. Enjoy!

Ginger & Citrus Sake Sangria Recipe
 
02:39
Warm your winter with this sunny sake-based sangria that tastes like summer. Seriously, you will think it is August! Bursting with fresh ginger, crisp tangerine and a slight minty finish, this sangria is everything a mixed drink should be. You'll almost not want to share! 1 cup sugar 1 cup water 1 bottle Nigori unfiltered sake 6″ fresh ginger (about 1/2 cup chopped) 3 tangerines (more for garnish) 1/3 cup fresh mint leaves (more for garnish) 1. Bring the sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat, stirring to dissolve sugar. Of course, if you want to make other ginger-flavored beverages throughout the week, then go ahead and double this recipe. It is great in lemonade, tea or over ice cream. 2. Add ginger. Remove from heat, and let steep 30 minutes. 3. Pour syrup through a fine sieve into a heat resistant container; discard ginger. Chill in the refrigerator. If you made extra, just store it in an airtight container for up to a week. 4. Thinly slice the tangerines and add them to the pitcher. 5. Add the fresh mint leaves to a glass with barely enough sake to cover and mull them. We aren't using much mint in this recipe because its only purpose is to brighten the drink. I am not a huge fan of super sweet beverages and the mint adds a clean finish to this beverage. 6. Add the mulled mint and the remaining sake to the pitcher. 7. Add the chilled ginger syrup to the pitcher and mix well. I threw in a few more mint leaves because they are just so gorgeous with the bright orange tangerine slices. Almost too pretty to drink...almost! 8. For each glass you are going to serve the sangria in, sugar coat the rim. Just pour about 1/4 cup of granulated sugar into a shallow plate. Wipe the rim of the glass with a tangerine slice and then twist the wet rimmed glass in the sugar. Makes it all sparkly! Enjoy!

How to Store Peaches
 
02:05
Peaches are basically introverts. They should be stored on their shoulders and not touch one another. If you must bag them, don't put to many in one sack. And remember, they need to breath because of the ethylene gas they omit. So use paper (fridge only) or plastic with holes cut in it. So how should you store them based on their ripeness? Ripe peaches - If it's ripe but you aren't ready to eat it, put it in the fridge. You'll need to check on it frequently though. Not quite ripe - Store them on the kitchen counter, on their shoulders. Firm peaches - Place them in a paper bag to ripen faster. Include a very ripe banana in the bag or an apple if you wish to speed up the ripening process.
