Gazing at the steam rises


Gazing at the steam rising off the cauldron in the temple with the moon shining at all that touch's. We put this and some of that into the cauldron, is it food or is it elixir of life in the steam rising from it.
the thoughts of boil and boil toil and trouble bubbles forth from minds that are attending in the temple, ah witches of evening all ready to come forth and benefit from all the steering of the cauldron, ah...so nice so true...let us enjoy!!

Here's one if your having Prime Rib or Beef
Yorkshire Pudding
* 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
* 1/2 teaspoon salt

* 3/4 cup milk
* 1/2 cup pan drippings from roast prime rib of beef

Directions

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

Sift together the flour and salt in a bowl. In another bowl, beat together the eggs and milk until light and foamy. Stir in the dry ingredients just until incorporated. Pour the drippings into a 9-inch pie pan, cast iron skillet, or square baking dish. Put the pan in oven and get the drippings smoking hot. Carefully take the pan out of the oven and pour in the batter. Put the pan back in oven and cook until puffed and dry, 15 to 20 minutes.

Here a couple of recipes I serve during the Holidays Ronda.
Turkey with Cranberry Walnut stuffing
Turkey ( IMPORTANT :I highly recommend oven roasting bags it improves the juiciness and flavor of the turkey x10!)
Stuffing recipe: 2 bags of cubed ,seasoned stuffing (Pepperidge Farms is good)
1 cup dried cranberries
1 whole white onion
3 stalks of chopped celery
1 cube of butter
Fresh sage
poultry seasoning (I like to add a little extra of this seasoning,optional)
1 cup walnuts
This part is a method handed down to me by my grandmother
pour the dried stuffing in large mixing bowl .Then take large handfuls of the cubed stuffing at a time and run it under running water then squeeze excess moister out. Do this till you have moistened all of the stuffing
In a fry pan place your cube of butter, whole chopped onion,celery and salt and pepper to taste. Saute' on low heat until onion is transparent .Then pour into bowl with stuffing. Add poultry seasoning ,cranberries and walnuts and fresh sage and poultry seasoning.
Check the instructions in the box of oven bags and preheat your oven according to the turkey size .
Clean your turkey and place in oven bag and give the turkey a rub of butter. Then stuff the Turkey ( IMPORTANT:make sure your hands are very clean before beginning this process and always do this process just before the turkey goes in and not hours before-Sam n ella may invite themselves to your supper ~lol~) Okay now that your Turkey is stuffed and ready to go in the oven.Close bag and in it goes.

Dice apple very finely do the same with it.
Then blend together in a jar
Dried Apple
Dried Orange Peel
Cinnamon stick and a little cinnamon oil
Whole cloves
Whole Cardamom
Coriander Seed
Ginger dried
Star Anise
Nutmeg fresh ground or powder will do
Allspice
This smells amazing and works well in tea and cider or just a little in a pan of water as a potion to sweeten the air and everyone near.

Last one for now... I promise!

Sparkling Solstice Wands

·1 pkg pretzel rods
·1 pkg white chocolate chips, almond bark, or Candiquick
·1 tsp shortening
·Food coloring or colored candy disks (available in the candy/cake decorating aisle)
·Colored sugars

In a double boiler or in the microwave, melt the white chocolate and shortening. If you are using a double boiler* stir consistently over medium heat, until the chocolate is melted and smooth. If you are using a microwave, set it microwave for only 30 seconds at a time. After each 30-second interval, stir the chocolate thoroughly. 60 to 90 seconds should be plenty of time to melt the chocolate…if you microwave it too long it will become dry and crumbly instead of melted and smooth.

Dip the pretzel rods in the white chocolate until they are coated ¾ of the way down. Set aside until they harden. Re-melt the chocolate as needed (it will cool and re-harden as you work…although the shortening will slow the process some).

When the chocolate is dry, in a separate small bowl, melt colored candy or take some of the white chocolate and mix with food coloring. Drizzle colored candy along the length of the pretzel and dip the candied tip into the colored candy. Roll the tip into the colored sugar and set aside to dry.

Magical Pudding

For a magical pudding, peel, core, and cut three apples into bite-sized
pieces. Peel and segment three oranges. Peel and slice two bananas, and
drain one large can of fruit cocktail and one large can of pineapple and
reserve the juice. Put the fruit in a large bowl, and mix together stirring
deosil. Heat the reserved juice to a simmer in a pan. Add two tablespoons of
tapioca, and one-half cup of sugar, stirring deosil until it begins to
thicken. If it begins to boil, reduce the heat and stir widdershins until it
returns to a simmer. Pour the juice over the fruit. Add two cups of cream,
whipped, and fold in gently. Put the bowl in the refrigerator to chill for
an hour. Before serving, say: “North, south, east, west—nurtured at our
Lady’s breast. Above, below, within, without—our Lord provides, we have no
doubt.”

So here is a rather yummy recipe for an "Apple Sauce Cake" that I found in the "Yankee Magazine's Great New England Food Festival Recipe" book. I made my own applesauce from apples that I find on trees located in the parks, etc. that have been let go wild. The apples are typically misshapen, but with some patient "surgery", as it were, good applesauce can be made. I throw them in the crock pot with a little water and lemon juice and let them go all day--easy! In any case, here is the recipe.

2 C sifted all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp grated nutmeg
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 C unsalted butter, room temperature
1 C packed brown sugar
1 C unsweetened applesauce, warmed
1 C raisins
1/2 C chopped nuts

Sift together the flour, soda, spices, and salt; set aside. Cream butter and sugar until fluffy and light. Alternately add the dry ingredients and warm applesauce, blending well after each addition. Mix in the raisins and nuts. Pour into baking pan (use a standard loaf pan, 8x8 square pan, several small pans, cupcake pan--your choice) and bake at 350 F for 45 to 50 minutes, until golden. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, remove and finish cooling on wire rack. Wrap and chill before slicing. Serve with apple butter and hot tea.
