test kitchen questions & answers

Q I LOVE MAKING JAM, BUT FIND THE FRUIT ALWAYS RISES TO THE TOP WHEN IT’S COOLING IN THE JAR. IS THERE ANY WAY OF STOPPING THIS? A This is a common problem with marmalades or jams. Try leaving it off the heat in the saucepan for 15 minutes after you’ve finished cooking it, or until it starts forming a ‘skin’ on top. Then, just before bottling in heated sterilised jars, give the jam or marmalade a stir and the slightly thicker consistency will keep the fruit and rind evenly dispersed through the mixture once it’s put in the jars. Q Are there various ways to boil different veg? I always plunge them into boiling water, regardless of type. A Through our years in the kitchen, we’ve found a simple rule, vegetables that…

know your pumpkins

BUTTERNUT This is a good all-rounder squash suitable for soups, mashes and roasting. It has a pale orange thin skin and is easy to peel when raw. RED KURI This variety looks like mini pumpkins. The flesh is bright orange and with a mellow, nutty flavour, it is a good all-rounder in curries and roast vegetable mixtures. KABOUCHA Or Japanese pumpkin, with green mottled skin. The orange, nutty tasting dense flesh is great roasted. Cook, then peel the skin off, as it is a whole lot easier. But we advise eating it as it is full of flavour. SUGAR PIE Small and round with a deep orange skin, this pumpkin is suitable for carving, stuffing and roasting. CROWN PRINCE A large pumpkin with ribbed grey skin, with sweet-flavoured flesh. Best suited for roasting.…

Blackberries have high antioxident levels, due to their dark colour, and are rich in salicylic acid, which is great for your skin. A handful of these purple gems have half of an adult’s recommended daily allowance of manganese, necessary for bone development and nutrient absorption. The blackberry is a drupelet, or a cluster of fruits and the seed inside each drupelet contributes to the berry’s nutrient value. HALVA & BLACKBERRY ICE CREAM WITH BLACKBERRY SAUCE PREP TIME: 30 MINUTES (+ FREEZING) SERVES 6 You don’t need an ice-cream maker for this Middle-Eastern inspired ice cream. The crumbled halva adds a wonderful sweet hit balanced by the juicy blackberry hidden jewels. It’s delicious served with the fresh blackberry sauce. • 4 large eggs, separated• 100g caster sugar• 1 small orange, finely grated rind only• ½…
