What is the sous vide method of cooking?
In the sous vide cooking method, the food item is sealed in an airtight vacuum-sealed bag. Then it is cooked in temperature-controlled water. In French, sous vide means “under vacuum.” The temperature of the water is always kept far below its boiling point.
In this way, the food is cooked very slowly and releases most of its natural flavors. Also, the natural flavors of food are not destroyed due to the high heat cooking procedures.
Why is my Gelatin not working?
Some people think that handling gelatin is problematic. However, it’s not. If you follow a few simple steps, you can make the best use of gelatin. The most fundamental step is to let the gelatin bloom for a few minutes in a small amount of water. Once it blooms, mix it with the larger quantity of mixture and heat it slightly. Do not boil the gelatin mixture.
Are frozen strawberries a better option?
Freezing is the most effective and convenient long-term storage method. Strawberries retain most of their nutritional value when they are frozen fresh. Frozen strawberries will remain usable for up to one year. You can also preserve strawberries by this method in your household freezer.
What are the methods applied for freezing strawberries?
Strawberries are frozen in freezer containers or heavy plastic bags sealed with wire twists. There are several ways in which strawberries can be frozen.
- Dry pack sweetened
- Floating in a syrup
- Tray frozen whole
Take washed and hulled berries in a bowl and add sugar. You will need to add approximately ¾ cup of sugar per quart of strawberries. Mix and leave for a while so that the sugar dissolves. Fill this mixture in containers and freeze. When using in desserts, adjust the sweetness accordingly.
Sweet Syrup Pack:
In this method, you can prepare a sugar syrup separately by boiling and dissolving sugar in water (the ratio is 3 cups sugar: 4 cups water). Refrigerate until cool. Fill the strawberries in freezer containers and top with this syrup.
Spread the hulled and washed strawberries on a tray and freeze. Remove from the tray when they solidify and store in plastic bags or freezer containers. This method does not involve the addition of sugar.
What is the right way of thawing the frozen strawberries?
When you thaw the berries to use them in a recipe, they lose their firmness. You can still use them in recipes where they need to be grinded, like mousse and cheesecake. However, when you are sugar-frozen strawberries, you will need to adjust the amount of sugar or condensed milk you add to your dessert. Freezing the berries allows you to enjoy strawberry desserts throughout the year regardless of what the season is.
