RECIPE: Bourbon Slush Frozen Cocktail

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 13:41:08 +0000 Chowhound: The recipe I have used calls for 12 ounces of previously frozen cherries thawed with juices reserved. There should be about 10 tablespoons juice, then add enough water to the juices to equal 1 1/2 cups total. Add 1/2 cup sugar, the cherries, and bring to a boil, simmer for 1 min. Remove from heat. Remove the cherries with a skimmer or slotted spoon, and I put the cherries in a heatproof glass bowl or you could put them in a 1 quart jar. Add 1/2 cup brandy or cognac, cover and set aside. Bring the cherry syup to a boil in a large pan, then continue boiling until it has reduced to 1 cup. Pour the syrup over the cherry/brandy mixture, stir or swirl a bit and after it has cooled refrigerate. The cherries are supposed to keep covered for up to 3 months as is but I have never had them last that long.

FOOD 101: The Difference Between Crème, Creme & Cream

Wed, 14 Feb 2018 21:25:43 +0000

February 14th—Valentine’s Day—is also National Creme Filled Chocolates Day. But what’s with creme vs. cream? “Creme,” pronounced cream, is a mis-spelled, mis-pronounced Americanization of the French word for cream, crème (pronounced KREHM). It is used in the U.S. to make chocolates and desserts seem more special; i.e., French, without the correct French pronunciation and accent…
