    A lot of home made Ice Cream

    Recipe:
    A- The mass for all layers:
    1- 2 liters of milk;
    2- 12 eggs;
    3- honey/sugar by taste
    So proportionally you need 6 eggs to every liter of milk.
    Put the milk on fire and meanwhile mix well the eggs.When the milk is warm enough,add the eggs in the pot and stir gently.Stir until you see that the mixture start to become a sort of flowing pudding.During stirring pay attention at the bottom of the pot because the eggs could coagulate because of the heat.Having that flowing homogeneous pudding,you can pull the pot from the fire and add honey or sugar according to your taste and let it cool.I prefer honey because is offered a denser texture to the final product.That flowing homogeneous pudding,by cooling will became almost a solid pudding,but soft enough to be poured.

    B The layers I've done from top to bottom are:caramel,vanilla-banana mix and coffee-chocolate mix.

    Caramel recipe:
    1-In a pot add about 250-300 grams of sugar and melt it on the fire stirring continuously.
    2-When the sugar is melted completely and it have a brownish color,pull the pot off the fire and add about 200-250 grams of milk.Pay attention because if the milk is cold or warm it is possible to have small explosions of burned sugar and milk mixture which can burn your skin.It take about 10-15 seconds until the mixture stabilizes and is no more danger.
    3-When the mixture is stabilized pot the pot again on the low fire and stir until the melted sugar is dissolved completely and then pull the pot from the fire and let it cool.
    4-Until the mixture is cooled,whip 300-350 of cream until is almost formed butter.
    5-Taste the mixture and add honey or sugar by your taste.

    Ok,now you have the the "pudding" from point "A",diluted in milk burned sugar and whipped cream.
    Take as much as you want from the "pudding" and add it step by step to the whipped cream mixed it by hand not by mixer.When you finished adding the pudding add also step by step the diluted in milk sugar.Now is the moment to put the mixer at work because you have to obtain a homogeneous mass.When you have this mass,you can pour it whatever form you have and put it in freezer.

    After one hour or so,depending how freeze is that first layer,you can start work to the second layer.

    Vanilla-banana mix recipe:
    This is easier than caramel and less dangerous.
    Ingredients you need:
    1- 1 or 2 vanilla pods according to your taste
    2- 2 bananas
    3- 250-300 cream for whipped
    4- rum
    5- honey or sugar

    The process:
    1- Peel bananas and crush them until you obtain a paste;
    2- Cut longitudinal the vanilla pods and take out the good from it and add it to banana paste;
    3- Add as much pudding you want from point "A" and mix it forming a mixture;
    4- Whip 250-300 grams of cream;
    5- Add step by step the mixture from point 3 into the whipped cream stirring gently;
    6- When you finished adding the mixture you can homogenize it with mixer;
    7- During the homogenizing process,taste the mixture and add sugar or honey and rum by your taste;
    8- When is ready,pour it gently over the first layer,if you see that the first layer isn't frozen enough and let it freeze.

    Coffee-chocolate mix recipe:
    Ingredients:
    1- 250-300 grams of the strongest black coffee you ever drink.If is necessary boil it again and add more grounded coffee ;
    2- Cocoa powder by taste;
    3- 250-300 grams of cream for whipping
    4- Rum by taste;
    5- Honey or sugar.I prefer sugar for this mix,because honey doesn't fit by taste for me with coffee.

    The process:
    1- Mix cocoa powder in the coffee;
    2- Mix the mixture in the rest of the "pudding" remained from point "A".
    3- Whip the cream until is almost butter;
    4- Add step by step the cocoa-coffee mixture to the whipped cream and stir gently.After you finish to add the mixture,start using the mixer to obtain a homogeneous mixture ;
    5- Add rum and honey or sugar by taste and mix until the sugar is dissolved.
    6- Now the third layer is ready for pouring over the second layer and precede the same as point 8 from vanilla-banana mix recipe.

    Only now you finish the work and can sit and relax and wait at least 24 hours until the ice cream is completely frozen.

    That looks delicious! Wow

    Just a quick correction on the cabbage, that's Hungarian Stuffed Cabbage, no tomatoes at all. Instead it is sauerkraut and Chabai sausage and sour cream, and the usual stuffed cabbage rolls. Growing up that was my favorite meal after a hard day of sports - I could pack away those cabbage rolls with a dollop of sour cream on top!
    Forget about it

    Thanks Ernie!

    With your Csabai sausages you open old memories from times when I wandered a lot across Europe passing from time to time through Hungary,visiting some cities like Szolnok,Kecskemet,Bekescsaba,Gyor,Budapest,Mako,Sz eged,Debrecen and so on and eating there all kind of sausages and salami.Nowadays they lost more their taste as it was 25-35 years ago.Sad...but perhaps at the country side,people are still keeping the taste of original recipes and ingredients... There are so many cabbage roll recipes,but without sour cream on top they are noting as Strat said "sour cream is God's gift to humanity".

    Today we planned to made canned vegetable stew and I'll add the recipe and more photos of the process

    Why do you "believe"?It IS God's gift to humanity.

    Paprika3 is interesting,but I don't use apps.Only computer and notebook and my memory.

    Recipes notebook is very helpful when computer cracked down and memory failed to help.

    Canned vegetable stew recipe with an introductory story

    As any gardener know,not all the fruits and vegetables are ripen in the same time so they must be harvested step by step.So we did.As much as we harvested we prepare them as follow:
    Preparing process of red peppers and eggplants.
    1-We cooked them in bbq style;
    2-After that we peeled all of them and remove the seeds - not to the eggplants - and stems;
    3-We pass them through chopping machine - doesn't matter diameter of sieve's holes - ;
    4-Putt every one of them in big plastic bags in the freezer for later use
    This process happened during Summer and Autumn.

    Yesterday before making the stew,we took out the bags with peppers and eggplants from the freezer and let them melted outside being chill enough over night.

    Today we prepared the stew with following ingredients as follow:
    1- 2 liters of sunflower oil;
    2- 5-6 kg of a mixture of chopped onions and leek - you can use only onions or only leeks;
    3- 4 kg of red peppers prepared as above;
    4- 2,5 kg of eggplants prepared as above;
    5- 2 liters of tomato sauce;
    6- according to your taste:4 bay leaves,salt and grounded black pepper.You can add any other spices you like.

    Preparing:
    1-Take a large pot,pour the oil and start the fire;
    2-When the oil is hot enough,add the chopped onions and leeks;
    3-Start stirring until the mixture is fried according to your taste - mine is golden with a tempt of light brown color.This is the moment when you will never stop stirring,until the stew is ready;
    4- When the mixture kept the color,pour the melted red peppers and bay leaves and continue stirring;
    5- From the moment when is start boiling,keep boil it for an other half an hour;
    6- After this time,add the melted eggplants and tomato sauce and continue stirring;
    7- When you have homogenized the mixture add salt by your taste.Star with a small amount,let it dissolve,taste it and if is need it ad more.
    8- Continue boiling the mixture until is hot enough and boiling like tar and don't forget to add grounded black pepper
    9- When is boiling like that,that's the indicator that is the moment to put in previous sterilized jars and lids;
    10- Fasten well the lids and put the in a wooden or cardboard box and cover them with a blanket until next day.
    11- Next day,uncover them and place them in your storage place.
    That's all.Other recipes are with beans or rice,both boiled before be added to the mixture.

    Stages of preparing the stew.
    All ingredients,excepting oil,black pepper and salt are homemade,including bay leaves from our bay tree

    Looks like your sunflower oil portion might be wrong, no? At least in the pictures it looks a lot less than 2 liters...

    Sincerely,it wasn't exactly 2 liters,because some sunflower oil remained inside the bottle's walls. My bad,sorry.

    Ingredients:
    1- 300 grams of grounded pork meat or what ever meat you like;
    2- 1 fine chopped onion;
    3- 100 grams of rice;
    4- salt and black pepper by your taste;
    5- strudel dough.

    -Fry the onion until is yellow-brownish.
    -Boil "al dente" the rice.Must be al dente because during cooking the pie,the rice must absorb the the grease from the meat if you use pork.
    -After the rice is boiled,let it cool down and then mix in a bowl all ingredients.
    -Take three sheets of your strudel dough and put them in a tray.
    -Fill the sheets with the mixture and wrap them on top.
    -Put the pie in the preheated oven and take it out when top of the pie looks like in image above.

    You can eat it hot or cool with yogurt,kefir or grounded Parmesan.
