Appetizer with ham (ham)

Appetizer with ham (ham)

Peel the tomatoes. I did according to the method on Cevabun, and it went very well and I thank them.

Put a pot of water to boil over medium heat. Put very cold water in a bowl, even with ice. Stick a red fork on the back. With a well-sharpened knife, grow the red in the shape of a cross, at the top, just enough to cut the skin a little. Introduce the tomato with a fork in boiling water for 1 minute. Remove and place in cold water.

Remove the fork and put in the second tomato and do the same. I made bruschettas at home, but they can be bought. Toast the bread; put them in a tray and put them in the oven for 10 minutes until they harden. I fried them and then dried them on top of the toaster because I didn't make much of a force. : D

Grease with a layer of tomatoes. A very good and effective appetizer comes out. : D

Add the well-drained corn, diced chopped peppers, chopped turkey ham, sliced ​​black olives, grated mozzarella and finely chopped green onion.

Put the lid on and set the High mode for 2 hours.

After the program is over, carefully remove the appetizer cake and let it cool, then you can cut it.

How to prepare the traditional ham recipe?

ham is prepared in several stages, each with its importance:

1. Marinating, tenderizing, seasoning - for at least 1 week.

2. Tight binding-to have beautiful shape.

6. Leave to cool in the juice in which it boiled.

8. Final Drainage & ndash maturation.

The dirty pulp is washed and drained well, so that it has no more water, then sprinkled with all the spices, freshly ground or crushed in a mortar, crushed garlic and sliced ​​onion. 1-2 bay leaves are finely chopped and sprinkled on top, pour the wine, then massage the meat very well. I put everything in a bag and tie it tightly, then I put it in the cold and from time to time I return the bag, because marinade to penetrate the flesh on all sides. Keep in this marinade for at least 1 week and always return, so that the marinade is done evenly. After this time, remove the meat, shake with spices and onions and roll tightly, then tie with string (make a fabric from the string around, to hold well).

Leave it to the wind, to blow it, in a ventilated place, for at least 24 hours, to dry, then give it to smoked, for 24-36 hours. The smoke must be cold, very little hot and it is ideal that the smoking is done only with wood or sawdust from the fruit tree. Then we go to the boil. & # 128578

Put the pulp on boiled, in the water with bay leaves and let it boil covered, over low heat, 1 hour from the moment the water boiled, then turn off the heat and let it cool in the juice until the next day. If the juice decreases, fill it with hot water (not cold), so that the pulp is permanently covered with liquid and put a lid on it. After cooling, place it between 2 wooden bottoms and place weights on top, to give shape and leave for a few hours.

It is given again in the wind, in a ventilated and cold place, to dry well, for 1 day, then you can cut and eat this wonderful ham.

Prepared in this way, the ham (ham, pulp) is absolutely wonderful, tasty, It is tender, fragrant and juicy, and the color is a pink absolutely gorgeous.

And everything prepared naturally, without any preservatives.

If desired, after boiling you can grease the ham immediately, when hot, with Paprika sweet or spicy, pepper, garlic, greens, combined to taste.

If the weather is cold and you have a place to keep it in a ventilated place, this ham can be left out. I prefer to cut it into suitable pieces and put it in the freezer and take it out a little, to eat it fresh.

If you have nowhere to smoke, you can just boil it. The color will no longer be pink but a gray-brown, but I guarantee that the taste will be wonderful. The fact that it has no preservatives at all, makes this boiled ham not pink. It will look exactly like any other cooked meat.

Instead, the ham that is boiled after smoking takes on a pinkish-red color, absolutely gorgeous. I made over time both boiled and boiled + smoked, so I saw the difference.

What else can I tell you? As it is cut into extremely fine slices without problems, it does not crumble, both ham and rolls can be made from this ham, without problems. All you need is a knife with a long and very sharp blade.

I am waiting for your opinions, suggestions, criticisms & ndash for me they are all welcome and constructive, so that I can offer you the best recipes.

All about jamon, the traditional ham of Spain

Imagine thin slices of dark red ham like rose petals, sitting on a hand-painted plate. Imagine whole pieces of ham sitting in the mountain air to freeze. And imagine a piece of them hanging in Spanish kitchens, ready to be served at any time for a snack.

Jamon. In Spain, ham (ham) means hospitality. The ham is Spain itself. Of all the types of ham in Europe, the one in Spain is considered to be the highest quality.

In Spain there are two names when it comes to traditional ham, and both are reasons for joy among lovers of this food.

One of the two names is Jamon Serrano & # 8211 Serrano ham- a kind of country-smoked ham that is made only from white pork. From ancient times, in the mountains of Spain, ham is wrapped in sea salt and left to hang from the rafters of houses to smoke. 18 months later, the ham was ready to be served in places specially designed for passers-by. They stopped to enjoy a small snack consisting of a few thin slices of this famous ham and, at the same time, of Manchego cheese. Today, Serrano Ham accounts for about 90% of Spain's annual ham production.

This food combines traditional methods with modern facilities. Peter's production are chosen only pigs with white meat and which were fed exclusively on grain. These pigs are specimens of several species: Duroc, Pietrain, Landrace, etc. Compared to other types of ham produced in other countries, Serrano Ham is clearly superior. It is distinguished by its texture, its intense red color and its strong taste.

Iberico ham it is the pride of Spain. The history of animals whose meat is used for this type of ham dates back to prehistory, when non-speakers ran freely throughout the Iberian Peninsula. Columbus had several such pigs on his ship, Santa Monica, when he discovered the New World. A family member who founded claims that the ham produced by his family members is one of the finest in the world. This family organization dates back to 1996. Jambon Iberico is produced from the meat of a species of pig from southwestern Portugal & # 8211 Iberian pig, much fatter, with a unique marbled meat. Unlike the Bellota species, they are fed exclusively on cereals and are only left outdoors for a short time, at which time various herbs are added to their diet.

Acorn-fed Iberian ham is a subcategory of Iberico Jamon. The treatment of these pigs is different. They are allowed to roam the meadows of Dechesa, and in autumn, when the time of slaughter approaches, they are stuffed with Belluga truffles to gain weight. The results are not long in coming: pigs gain a kilogram a day. One drawback would be that much of the fat in meat is monounsaturated.

Both types of Iberico Ham are smoked between 24 and 48 months, losing more than half of their initial weight due to the disappearing fats. When the smoking process is over, the ham has a unique taste due to unsaturated fats, a complex aroma and an incredible ruby ​​color.

If you visit Spain, look in the markets for the real thing jamon and enjoy a few thinly sliced ​​slices (it's an art of cutting ham, but about that, another time) to understand live the differences between traditional Spanish ham and supermarket products.

Costachel's recipe with the cupbearer's recommendation

I really don't know why asparagus is not a more popular vegetable in our lands. To grow, grow, thank you, popularization efforts have been made since the interwar period. Anyway, I will not solve here the problem for which this vegetable is passed to the fite category, I better give you a recipe that sounds like that (with Maltese sauce, hear, you, girl!), But it's really very simple and unpretentious, especially if you master the secrets of the Dutch sauce (as in fact this Maltese is nothing but the Dutch, but with orange instead of lemon).

Well, that being said, the necessary ingredients are: 1 kg fresh asparagus, 3 egg yolks, 225 g fresh butter, 1 orange, salt and pepper.

Start by cleaning the asparagus. If it is fresh fire, then all you have to do is break it at the base (4-5 cm) and you're done, you've got rid of the wood. But as you will probably not have this luck, cut the ends with a sharp knife (about 4-5 cm must be removed) and clean the stems with the help of the special cleaning tool (potato cleaner or as they will call each other) , pressing gently. As for boiling, you have three options at hand: either plain, in boiling salted water (8-10 minutes for green asparagus, 15-20 for white asparagus), or in steam, or in the so-called classic and somehow mixed version. asparagus sheaf, bring to a boil, standing, and the water level should reach below the tops, so that they, younger, boil in steam). Regardless of the method, to be sure, prick a wire with a knife or a toothpick. If it is soft, but still feels a certain firmness, it is ready (al dente, I would say, if it were pasta). Remove the asparagus threads and pass them under a stream of cold water, thus stopping the boiling and, in the case of green asparagus, this trick also helps to maintain the color.

Ideally, while the asparagus is boiling, take care of the sauce (if you can't, prepare it in advance and keep it warm in a thermos). I told you about the two main methods of solving the problem when we were talking about the Dutch sauce, so I can only mention that the lemon juice is replaced with the orange one, the grated peel also enters our Maltese (although, if it seems too shiny, better not, because it is not known with which donkeys they were treated) and that it would not be bad, however, to have at hand some lemon juice, for a possible sour addition.
