Great Grandma’s Tomato Butter Recipe

Last week my mom and I went down to my grandma’s house to go through some stuff. I asked my cousin about a few of my grandma’s recipes so I could take a few photos of them. She showed me all of grandma’s recipe boxes, they were filled with cards she’d written recipes on and clippings from magazines. She also showed me my great grandma’s recipe book. It was a collection of recipes scratched and pasted in to an old Railroad Ledger. It’s so great to see old well-used recipes written by my grandmothers.

I’m planning on taking these and making each one, taking photos and making a cookbook of family recipes, including photos of the recipes written by my grandma’s. I think this will make a wonderful Christmas present for family members.

BBQ Sauce (recipe)

My new personal BBQ sauce recipe from scratch. Neighbors beware!

Quantity varies each time for me, and this list is roughly in order of amount used. Anybody can do this, just keep tasting it through the process. I’ve found you actually need quite a bit of liquid smoke. Go easy on the oil, however if you want it to be a smoker sauce (good for making the neighborhood drool), add a little more. My grandfather’s chicken recipe calls for 1 cup of sugar, vinegar AND oil, which is just too much. You actually ‘feel’ the oil the next day; gross.

Sugar will aid in charring, but to the average person, they’ll see it as being ‘burnt to a crisp’ (I happen to love this). Sugar amounts listed below are high. If you don’t have a hot grill, or don’t like charring, you should lower the sugar amounts or you’ll end up with way too much sweetness.

* tomato paste (1-2 cans)
* vinegar (1 cup)
* sugar (1/2 cup)
* brown sugar (1/2 cup)
* molasses (to color and taste)
* oil (1/4 cup)
* Worcestershire sauce
* liquid smoke (I prefer Stubb’s)
* soy sauce
* onion powder
* mustard powder
* garlic (2-3 cloves)
* salt and pepper

Blend.

Homemade Sweet and Sour Pork w/ Recipe

Recipe: rasamalaysia.com/chinese-recipe-sweet-and-sour-pork/

Evaluation: Not as good as a good Chinese restaurant’s, but better than cheap/buffet versions with that ubiquitous orange sauce.

Deep frying in a broad skillet on an electric stove was not pleasant, but it produced the desired results. Frying in batches of ~10 cubes of pork for 3 and a half minutes apiece and waiting a couple minutes between batches produced a consistent, golden brown, tender chunk. I used medium-high heat (7 on the dial) and let the oil heat for about 15 minutes before starting to fry.
I kept the fried chunks warm on a baking sheet in a 200 degree oven while frying the other batches.

I multiplied this recipe by 4 to use the meat I had, and found that the sauce tasted too much like soy sauce. There may also have been too much corn starch in the sauce. There was definitely WAY too much batter left when I was done, so if you’re multiplying the recipe, make half what you would otherwise.

Willowbrook Publc School in Thornhil,l Ontario is working hard to keep fit and healthy while raising money for needy students in Libore, Niger, Africa. In order to stay fit, students are running in the gym twice a week before school begins at 8:30 am. These energetic and committed kids are also trying to get their peers to make healthier food choices by selling healthy snacks that have been donated by local grocery stores. In October, Longo’s donated 100 apples which were sold at the school during recess. The money raised was donated to Pencils 4 Kids to support their new library and educational programs. Bravo to the staff and students at Willowbrook. Healthy snacks will continue to be sold at the school.

The Apps for Healthy Kids competition is part of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move campaign to end childhood obesity within a generation. The competition challenges software developers, game designers, students and other innovators to develop fun and engaging software tools and games to urge children, especially “tweens” (children ages 9-12) – directly or through their parents – to eat better and be more physically active. "Food Hero," is a game that encourages kids to make more nutritious food choices and become more physically active. Eating healthy balanced meals every day helps you build strength. The goal of the game is to become a Food Hero by eating right and completing a set of running, biking and swimming challenges. USDA Photo 10di1506-112 by Bob Nichols.
