Mix glutinous rice, ordinary rice and food coloring. Soak in water for four hours. Slowly grind using a stone grinder or manual grinder. Be sure not to put too much water in while grinding, this will delay drying of milled ingredients. Too much water will cause the mixture to be sticky. Put milled ingredients onto cotton cloth. Tie corners of the cloth. Let it drip. When the mixture is almost dried, press it using a heavy object to remove excess water. Let stand overnight.

Remove the milled ingredients from the cloth. Place it on finely woven cotton cloth. Mix and crush the milled ingredients using your hand until the finest particles pass through the cotton and fall into a container. Collect the particles.

Boil water using the steamer. Cover it with custom-made-cover with nozzles big enough to fit bamboo tubes or metal cylinders. Cover the nozzles with cotton cloth.

Grease cylinders with margarine then half-fill cylinders with milled ingredients. Cover the other end of the cylinder with cotton cloth. Fit the opposite end into the nozzle. Steam will come out of the cylinder when it is cooked. Before removing Puto Bumbong from the cylinder, invert position to ensure proper cooking.

Century Egg

Sunday, November 12, 2006



The century egg, also known as preserved egg, thousand-year egg, thousand-year-old egg, (Chinese: 皮蛋; pinyin: Pídàn; literally "skin/leather egg" or Chinese: 松花蛋; pinyin: sōnghūadàn; literally "pine-patterned egg") ; (ไข่เยี่ยวม้า khai-yiew-ma (in Thai)) is a Chinese delicacy made by preserving duck, chicken or quail eggs in a mixture of clay, ash, salt, lime, and rice straw for several weeks to several months, depending on the method of processing. The yolk of the egg is concentrically variegated in pale and dark green colors while the egg white is dark brown and transparent, like cola.The yolk is creamy with a strong aroma and an almost cheese-like flavor. The egg white has a gelatinous texture similar to cooked egg white, however with very little taste. Some eggs have patterns near the surface of the egg white likened to pine branches.

1. Preparing the pickling solution:
  • Water 1L
  • Sodium chloride(NaCl) 72g
  • Sodium hydroxide(NaOH) 42g

Dissolve the NaCl and NaOH completely in water. Bring the solution to a boil and allow it to cool down before use.

2. Submerge the eggs in the saline solution, and store at 15 to 20oC for about 10 days.

3. Pick out the pickled eggs and rinse them. Then allow them to dry naturally.

4. Coat with PVA (polyvinyl acetate) or some other non-ventilated packaging material. An alternative is to add red soil to the saline solution after the pickled eggs are removed. Coat the eggs with the mud, and roll them in rice husk. Age for about 2 weeks.

5. Crack the eggs lightly and remove the shell. The white of the egg will have a grayish, translucent color, and a gelatinous texture. The yolk, when sliced, will be a grayish-green color.

6. To serve, cut into wedges and serve with bean curd (tofu) as an appetizer, or as a condiment for dishes such as rice gruel (congee).

SIOPAO (Steamed Pork Buns)

Ingredients:

Dough Filling:
  • 3 cups plain flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 60 g (2 oz) lard
  • 3/4 cup warm water
  • 1 teaspoon white vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
Filling
  • 1 in piece green ginger
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tbsp hoi sin sauce
  • 1 tbsp oyster sauce
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp sesame oil
  • 3 tsp corn flour
  • 4 shallots
  • 8 oz Chinese barbecued pork
Instructions:

Note: These buns are cooked in steamers available in sets of two or three racks. Chinese barbecued pork can be bought at Chinese food stores, or you can make your own - this is basically tocino - the recipe will come out soon! Be patient.

1. Place peeled and grated ginger, crushed garlic and oil in frying pan, saute gently for one minute. Add hoi sin sauce, oyster sauce, soy sauce and sesame oil, simmer for two minutes, stirring constantly. Add combined water and cornflour, stir until sauce boils; reduce heat, simmer uncovered for two minutes. Add very finely chopped pork, stir until combined. Remove pan from heat, add finely chopped shallots, stir until combined. Allow pork mixture to become complete cold.

2. to make the dough, sift flour, salt and baking powder into bowl. Rub in softened lard until mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Add combined warm water and vinegar, stir to a soft but pliable dough. Turn out on to lightly flour surface; knead lightly. Cover dough with plastic food wrap, allow to stand for 20 minutes. Knead lightly. Cut dough into 12 equal portions. Roll each portion into a ball.

3. Take each ball of dough and roll out on floured surface to a 4 in circle. Brush edge lightly with water. Place one round of dough in palm of hand. Put one tablespoon of filling in center of round. Press edges of dough together.

4. Take the two ends of bun, bring them up over the pinched edge and twist together firmly. Cut 12 pieces of greaseproof paper into 5in squares. Brush one side lightly with oil. Place a bun upside down, so the smooth rounded side is uppermost, on each oiled piece of paper.

5. Choose a saucepan slightly smaller than the diamer of the steamer. Fill saucepan to about 1/3 full of water, bring to boil. Arrange buns on paper in single layer in steamer. If using steamer with two or three racks, fill remaining racks the same way. Place on top of first rack. Put lid on top. Steam over gently boiling water for 20 minutes.

TIPS IN SIOPAO BUSINESS

Make sure your products are always fresh. Customers want their siopao fresh and hot when served, says Eymard Carandang of Siopao Express. "They can tell the difference, and they'll come back if your siopao is good."

Produce only the siopao that you can sell in a day. Siopao is perishable, so it's a good idea to make only what you can sell. "We produce and deliver siopao to our outlets every day to ensure they're always fresh," says Ngan Tian of Lots A Pizza. "If the siopao in the steamer is not sold at the end of the day, you must throw it away," says Carandang.

Know what your market wants. When Pacita Cheng of Pao Express gave away peanut, mongo, and ube siopao as birthday giveaways, those who received them pushed her to introduce the sweet varieties in the market. Ngan Tian came up with chicken asado siopao for her Muslim customers. "It's important to come up with products that will suit the market," she says.

Be consistent. Be careful with your mixing and preparations to produce consistently clean, nutritious , and delicious siopao.

Be careful with blending. The ingredients that you put into your siopao should blend very well with the dough. If not, your siopao will spoil easily."

Handle your products with care. Steam your siopao carefully so the dough does not get too soggy or too dry. You must check on them every time.

Christmas Fruitcake



Christmas is less than a hundred days away and today is the best time to learn how to do fruitcakes! Below are two ways to make Christmas Fruitcakes.

Boozy Fruitcake

Steps:
1. Heat oven to 300 degrees F.

2. Line three 8-by-4-by-2-inch loaf pans with buttered parchment paper.

3. Place the candied fruit, candied citrus peel, fresh citrus peel and raisins in a bowl.

4. Pour in 1/2 c. of the rum and set aside, stirring occasionally. The rum will soon be completely absorbed.

5. Sift together the flour, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and baking powder, and reserve.

6. Place the butter in the bowl of an electric mixer and beat until very fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the light brown sugar and beat another 2 minutes.

7. Add the eggs one at a time, then add the flour, and mix only until incorporated.

8. Fold in the fruit and walnuts by hand and divide the batter between the pans.

9. Bake for 1 hour, then top each cake with aluminum foil to prevent overbrowning.

10. Bake for 30 to 40 minutes more. See tips for doneness tests.

11. Cool completely.

12. While cakes cool, cut cheesecloth into three 2-foot lengths and soak in remaining rum.

13. Wrap each cake in one section of the cheesecloth, then wrap in plastic wrap.

14. Refrigerate at least one week, but preferably three.

Tips:
There are two ways to test for doneness: Insert a toothpick into the center of a cake; if it comes out clean, it's done. Or, press the top of the cake with your fingers; if it feels firm and spongy and springs back when pressed, it's done.

Either rum or brandy can be used as the alcohol in this recipe, depending on your personal preference.

You can also use regular dried fruit (dates, apricots, peaches, pears, cranberries and so on) instead of the candied fruit, if you prefer.

Cake flour produces a more tender crumb than all-purpose flour. It can be found in the baking section of your supermarket.



Fruitcake Truffles

Ingredients:

6 (1 ounce) squares semisweet chocolate
3 tablespoons whipping cream
3 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons orange liqueur
1 cup fruitcake crumbs
1/2 cup sifted confectioners' sugar

Method :

1. Chop chocolate into small pieces. In saucepan over very low heat, melt chocolate, cream, and butter until blended and smooth.
2. Stir in liqueur and fruitcake crumbs; chill for 2 hours or until firm.
3. Shape into 1 inch balls and chill at least 20 minutes. Before serving, roll in icing sugar or coca powder and chill for 20 minutes.

Pizza Recipes



Want to start your own Pizza business? Here are some great pizza recipes:

Homemade Pizza

My family loves this pizza recipe, which is a hodge-podge of several different recipes I've come across. It is time-consuming and family affair with lots of little tasks to delegate: cheese grating, vegetable slicing, pepperoni placing. You get the idea. It is definitely a weekend-only activity at our house, and I've been known to structure the weekend around it!

Ingredients:
Dough:

1 tablespoon dry yeast
1 1/2 cups warm water (105-115F)
3 1/2 cups white flour OR
1 1/2 cups white flour AND 2
cups whole wheat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil

Sauce:

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 2-pound can whole or crushed tomatoes
3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
1/4 teaspoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper

Directions:

Dough:

Prepare the dough at least two hours before you assemble the pizzas.

Mix yeast and water in a large bowl; place in warm spot for about five minutes. Sift flour and salt into the yeast. Mix well, then add olive oil and form a soft ball. Knead on floured surface until soft and elastic (about five minutes). Shape into ball and place in a lightly oiled bowl. Cover with a clean towel and place in a warm spot for about one hour. Punch down dough and reshape into ball. Cover and let sit another 20 minutes, or until it rises again. Punch down again. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Sauce

Pour olive oil into large skillet and place over medium heat. Add tomatoes to the warm olive oil with the remaining ingredients, crushing whole tomatoes with your hands as you add them to the pan. Cook over medium-low heat, breaking up tomatoes with wooden spoon, until the sauce is thick, 40-50 minutes.

Putting it all together

Roll out the dough and place on cookie sheets or pizza pans sprinkled with cornmeal. There is enough dough for two large thin crust pizzas. Pinch a lip along the edges. Top with sauce, cheese and your choice of pizza toppings, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with basil. Bake in 450F oven for 12 minutes.

We make this pizza with a thin wheat crust, which is crisp and slightly nutty sweet after baking, but with this recipe you can make the crust according to your preference. Our favorite toppings include caramelized onions, sliced tomatoes, pepperoni, spinach and freshly grated mozzarella cheese (packaged grated cheese is fine, of course, but just doesn't seem the same to us). When this pizza is hot and fresh out of the oven, there is not a store-made pizza that can compare. What we especially like about it the fact that it is hardly greasy, in spite of (or due to) all of the olive oil we use in the recipe. I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!
