Sausage with Sauerkraut

Sausage with sauerkraut, not my typical recipe. Sauerkraut is a prebiotic, so it’s really good for your gut health. While shopping in the north of the city, where the upscale supermarkets are located, I found this huge bottle of imported German sauerkraut. Sauerkraut and sausages sounded pretty tasty to me. Argentine style chorizo is more like a German sausage than a Mexican chorizo, the beer store across the street stocks Heineken, Dutch sounds like deutsch, so again close enough. I forgot to take a photo of the caraway seeds, so just imagine a generic spice jar.

cooking and the economy

If you read my regular blog, you know that my attention has been everywhere but cooking. Of course, I have been cooking but nothing really exciting. Sometime you just produce meals, you know what I mean?I did however make granola in my crock pot. I have been wanting to make granola but with my Easy Bake Oven sized tabletop oven, it just didn’t seem cost or time effective. Actually the maximum size pan my oven can accommodate is 9 x 12 inches. I had some coconut piloncillo filling hanging around from when I made Indian pastries, which I combined with 5 cups of oatmeal, and various other things that seemed to go into granola, like flax seeds, sesame seeds, sunflower seeds, almonds, dried fruits. I more or less followed this recipe but adjusted it to what I had on hand. We ate all the granola so I am planning upon making more.I also made this crockpot falafel recipe , I ...

Crockpot bread update

I have been making further experiments with the crockpot as bread oven. I made some sourdough oatmeal bread yesterday. Here are my findings. I got the best results when I put the bread in a mold (since my crockpot is round, I used a spring form pan as my mold) that I placed on a trivet. I also put a small quantity of water in the pot, around a quarter cup. Since I wanted the steam, I kept the pot lid tightly on. Even though several sites recommend rising in the crock with the machine on low or warm, I wanted a slower rise so did it the conventional way. If I was using a regular bread recipe I might try that method. I found that the bread was cooked with in 4 hours on high. I tested it by thumping (a hollow thump means cooked). I need to set a separate timer, my crockpot goes automatically to the warm ...

Bread baked in the crockpot

We don’t have a real oven. When we moved here I couldn’t imagine baking in 100 degree heat, then we were in a rental and unsure if we would be permanently staying in Mérida. When we were remodeling our kitchen we decided to put in a wall oven instead of buying a whole new range since we were happy with our Bosch stove top. At that time, I could not find a decent built in oven for less than $10,000 mxp, which was a great deal more than a entire top of the line stove would have been. Our compromise was to buy a tabletop convection oven, big enough to bake one loaf of bread or 6 muffins at one time.As my last post explained, I have been reading a blog about crockpotting, and the Crockpot Lady actually baked in her crockpot. What intrigued me is that she advocated keeping the lid ajar so the steam can escape.My friend had ...
