Hi everyone! I am VERY excited because my non-pofit, Parents Who Rock, is featured on a full page in Family Circle Magazine this month-p.48! Thank you to everyone involved in making PWR such a wonderful success in our community. I am so proud! Also, please see how PWR performers (including myself AND my husband)are donating their musical talents this weekend at http://www.parentswhorock.com
I want to add that many PWR performers have overcome their obstacles to performing by feeling supported by their friends and community and by practicing, just like new cooks! It can be done! Now to the FOOD!!
I want to tell you about a really easy recipe that will blow you away, apple cider reduction. I believe I have mentioned this tasty treat before when referring to how I spread this on chicken quesadillas. You may think that this is not worthy of a blog post focus, but I want you to know that it will transform all the food you eat once you have it in your fridge. You can use it like jelly, you can brush it on your meats, you can drizzle it on grains, you can eat it with a spoon (like my husband who sneaks it and then I yell at him because it took me so long to make), you can mix it into ice cream or for anything else.
Apple Cider Reduction:
1 Gallon Apple Cider
Big Pot (like a spaghetti pot)
Set aside about 2 Hours 20 minutes.
Just boil the apple cider for 2 hours and 20-30 minutes, until it is a little thick and bubbly. Stir it periodically and when it is syrupy but not too thin, after about 2hours and 20-30 minutes, let it cool and then pour it into a glass tupperware. Store in fridge indefinitely, as it is all sugar so preserves well. Email me if you have any questions about it.
P.S. Please check out my fishtick barbell recipe on baristakids and let them know how great these sound!!! http://www.baristanet.com/baristakids/blog/take-back-the-kitchen-fish-stick-barbells/
