Ginger Beef with Candied Jalapeños is another double process recipe. Why can't someone just cook these delicious recipes for you? Well, I am, but it is a bit of a commute for most of you.
I enjoy cooking with people, the chaos that ensures before the beautiful symphony of food is served. Potluck dinners, tasting and smelling other peoples food, watching the styles, the tricks. I was opening pomegranates wrong, for years, until Raj showed me an easy, no mess way. My friend K showed me the trick of storing fresh ginger in the freezer-fresh frozen! It grates really nicely to make ginger tea. Raj also showed me how well jalapenos and chilies stand up in the freezer.
What are your fave secrets, or cooking hacks? I love new great ideas, leave them in the comments! Knowing how well peppers freeze, I was excited when I saw a large bag for 50% off. I do like to shop the sales and clearance, it's a great way to buy fruit and veggies you normally wouldn't. Again coming up with great new ideas. After making the candied fruit for our hot cross buns, I had candied veggies on my mind. Here it is, Ginger Beef with Candied Jalapeños!
