Heinz Salad Cream

Heinz Salad Cream

Salad cream is a creamy, pale yellow condiment based on an emulsion of about 25–50 percent oil in water, emulsified by egg yolk and acidulated by spirit vinegar. It may include other ingredients such as sugar, mustard, salt, thickener, spices, flavoring and coloring. It was introduced in the United Kingdom in the 1920s, where it is used as a salad dressing and a sandwich spread. Due to the higher cost of ingredients during periods of rationing in the United Kingdom a flavor similar to mayonnaise was achieved in the creation of salad cream.

 
In the United Kingdom, it has been produced by companies including H. J. Heinz Company and Crosse & Blackwell. Heinz Salad Cream was the first brand developed exclusively for the United Kingdom market. When first created in the Harlesden (London) kitchens of Heinz in 1914 the preparation was done by hand. The jars were packed in straw-lined barrels—12 dozen in each. The work schedule was 180 dozen jars a day, with a halfpenny a dozen bonus if the workforce could beat the target.

Salad cream is available in most supermarkets in Canada, Ireland and Malta, as well as in Australia, where its taste may closely resemble that of “mayonnaise” as it is produced in that country.

Salad cream was not readily available in the United States until the 21st century (though Miracle Whip provided a similar, if thicker alternative); however, with the large population of British expatriates, especially in the Northeast, it is becoming more common. Apart from many expat stores, major retail supermarket chains such as New York-based Wegmans, Maine-based Hannaford[citation needed], Massachusetts-based Stop and Shop, Florida-based Publix, California-based Cost Plus World Markets and Michigan-based Meijer now sell salad cream as a regular item. Many supermarkets sell national and store brands of salad dressing which resemble salad cream.

If you don’t have an egg separator, the eaisiest way to separate yolks fro the whites is to crack them into a funnel. The whites slide out, leaving the yolk behind.

What to do with – Leftover Deviled Eggs

I love Deviled Eggs! And I hate to see the extra ones go to waste so here’s one way to put them to good use. You can serve it as another appetizer by spooning them on to crackers. Chop and dice the white egg part and top with a caper, a black olive slice or a sprig of dill. Then below are a few more great ideas from http://www.ehow.com/

 

 

 
Egg Sandwich
The easiest way to use leftover deviled egg filling is to make a tray of sandwiches. The recipe for deviled egg filling is nearly identical to the recipe for egg salad. You may want to add more mayonnaise to make the filling smoother. You may also want to add other seasonings and chopped vegetables, such as cayenne pepper or chopped celery. Toast enough bread slices to make the number of sandwiches you want. Top a toasted slice with lettuce, a piece of fresh tomato, some deviled egg filling and the other slice of toast. If desired, you can make finger sandwiches using bread with the crust cut off and sliced into small rectangles.

Deviled Egg Dip
You can make a dip out of unused deviled egg filling. Place the filling into a large bowl and add anywhere from 1/2 cup to 1 cup of mayonnaise or sour cream, depending on the amount of filling you have. If you have less than 1 cup of filling, use more mayonnaise; if you have more than 1 cup of filling, use less mayonnaise. Stir this mixture thoroughly with a whisk or spoon. Add a package of ranch or French onion dip mix, if desired. For another idea, mix the deviled egg filling with prepared guacamole. Serve either recipe with chips, crackers or small vegetables.

Deviled Eggs Benedict
You can give the classic breakfast dish, eggs Benedict, a unique twist with this recipe. The normal recipe consists of a poached egg atop a slice of Canadian bacon on an English muffin covered in Hollandaise sauce (a rich, egg-based sauce). Substitute a scoop of deviled egg filling for the poached egg and you have a whole new dish: deviled eggs Benedict. Instead of attempting to make homemade Hollandaise sauce (which can be difficult), you can purchase Hollandaise sauce mix from grocery stores.

Deviled Egg Samosas
Samosas are an Indian appetizer traditionally consisting of pastry stuffed with a potato filling. They are easy to make, especially if you use ready-made ingredients. Purchase a package of frozen O’Brien or hash brown potatoes, a package of frozen peas and a package of refrigerated pie crust or won ton wrappers. Cook some of the frozen potatoes with the frozen peas and season with curry powder, ginger and cilantro. Stir your leftover deviled egg filling into the potato mixture. Fill pie crust rounds, circles or wontons with the potato-egg filling and fry them in batches. These are perfect for a large gathering, such as a movie night or a Super Bowl party.

For eggs that last practically forever, separate then into whites and yolks, then freeze them separately in a lightly oiled ice-cube tray. When frozen pop them out and store in separate Hefty Bags in the freezer. These frozen eggs are perfect for baking. and will last longer since they’re separated.

To avoid the absorption of refrigerator odors, always store eggs in their original carton on an inside shelf of the refrigerator. Before you put away the carton, though, turn each egg upside down. Storing eggs with the tapered end down maximizes the distance between the yolk and the air pocket, which may contain bacteria. The yolk is more perishable than the white, even though it is more or less centered in the egg, the yolk can shift slightly and will move away from possible contamination.

Hint #1 – If you would like a richer color to your potato salad, (and who doesn’t ?), try adding a small amount of mustard when you are mixing it.

 
Hint #2 – To keep yolks centered when boiling eggs for deviled eggs, stir the water while they are cooking. And to keep them from wobbling on the platter when they’re done, cut a thin slice off two sides of the egg before you half it lengthwise. This will give each egg half a flat base.

Be careful when you’re making a souffle. Air bubbles are trapped when you beat your egg whites, and when a souffle is placed in the oven, the air expands, causing the souffle to rise. If the souffle is punctured or shaken, however, the air will be released too earl and the souffle will collapse. It’s also true that a souffle must be served as soon as it is removed from the oven. Souffles begin to collapse as soon as they start to cool down. So it’s best to serve them right in the baking dish.

Making perfect custard takes time and patience, but these tips should help. For a super – rich custard, add 2 – 3 egg yolks in addition to your usual amount of eggs. For a custard that is creamy rather than solid, stir the mixture continuously over low heat to keep the protein from setting too quickly. The milk helps separate the egg proteins from one another, which allows the custard to coagulate at a higher temperature and reduces the possibility of curdling. Never replace the milk with water, because your custard will not set. You should also never try to speed up the cooking process by increasing the heat.
