One of America’s Favorites – Graham Crackers

February 15, 2021 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | Leave a comment
Tags: , , , , , , , , , , ,

Modern mass-produced graham crackers

A graham cracker (pronounced /ˈɡreɪ.əm/ or /ˈɡræm/ in America) is a sweet flavored cracker made with graham flour that originated in the United States in the early 1880s. It is eaten as a snack food, usually honey- or cinnamon-flavored, and is used as an ingredient in some foods.

 

The graham cracker was inspired by the preaching of Sylvester Graham who was part of the 19th-century temperance movement. He believed that minimizing pleasure and stimulation of all kinds, coupled with a vegetarian diet anchored by bread made from wheat coarsely ground at home, was how God intended people to live, and that following this natural law would keep people healthy. His preaching was taken up widely in the midst of the 1829–51 cholera pandemic. His followers were called Grahamites and formed one of the first vegetarian movements in America; graham flour, graham crackers, and graham bread were created for them. Graham neither invented nor profited from these products.

A s’more

The main ingredients in its earlier preparations were graham flour, oil, shortening or lard, molasses and salt. Graham crackers have been a mass-produced food product in the United States since 1898, with the National Biscuit Company being the first to mass-produce it at that time. The Loose-Wiles Biscuit Company also began mass-producing the product beginning sometime in the early 1910s. The product continues to be mass-produced in the U.S. today. In earlier times, mass-produced graham crackers were typically prepared using yeast-leavened dough, which added flavor to the food via the process of fermentation, whereas contemporary mass-production of the product typically omits this process. The dough is sometimes chilled before being rolled out, which prevents blistering and breakage from occurring when the product is baked.

 

Graham cracker crumbs are used to create graham cracker crusts for pies and moon pies, and as a base, layer or topping for cheesecake. Graham cracker pie crusts are also mass-produced in the United States, and consumer versions of the product typically consist of a graham cracker crumb mixture pressed into an aluminum pie pan. The graham cracker is a main ingredient in the preparation of the s’more. Graham crackers are also commonly used in place of broas in the traditional Filipino icebox cake mango float.

Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

Today’s Menu: Chicken and Dumplings and Cornbread

 

 

For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Outside its 26 degrees, cloudy, windy, with a wind chill in the low teens. We have another 3-4 inches that came down late yesterday and early morning. So I spent a big part of the day salting and shoveling the driveway again. For Breakfast on this cold and snowy Thursday morning I Scrambled a couple of Eggs that I topped with Ortega Smoky Chipotle Taco Sauce. I also toasted a couple of slices of Aunt Millie’s Light Whole Grain Bread and prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. So its a real Dinner treat tonight! My Mom is making her melt-in-your mouth Chicken and Dumplings and some Cast Iron Skillet Cornbread.

 

My Mom is making her Chicken and Dumplings for Dinner Tonight! I guess if you are snowed in Chicken and Dumplings are the way to go! She used Bisquick Heart Smart Mix for the Dumplings and Tyson Split Chicken Breasts for the Chicken. She first made the Dumplings using a recipe found on Bisquick Boxes. Made those and set them aside until ready to use. My Grandmother and Mom both have used this same recipe since it came out on the Bisquick boxes. Not the best Dinner for calories and carbs but having 1 time every 4 months or so doesn’t hurt.

 

For the Chicken. She boiled the Chicken Breasts in a pot until they were done adding more water to them twice. After the Chicken was cooked she removed them from the pot and roughly shredded it. Returned it to the pot of Broth or Stew and added the Dumplings, reducing the heat. Cooked the two together uncovered for 10 minutes and then another 12 minutes covered until they were done.

 

As I said these Dumplings just melt in your mouth! Just incredible flavor with the Chicken being moist and adding it’s flavor. Plus that incredible and thick broth that’s created while its all cooking is the thing that ties it all together! I can’t have these often, having Diabetes 2, but once in a while is just fine! It’s hard to resist these pillowy Dumplings of goodness!

 

As the Chicken and Dumplings were cooking I made Mom Cornbread, Mom loves Cornbread! I made a small Cast iron Skillet of Cornbread. As always I used Martha White Corn Meal Mix, something I think I could eat every meal. I like a nice fresh and hot slice with Butter on it. When I make this I just make it by the instructions on the package but I only use half the ingredients because I use a small cast iron skillet to make it. I use Egg Beaters and Extra Virgin Oil instead of Eggs and Vegetable Oil the recipe calls for. Bake at 450 degrees for about 25 minutes and you have some golden brown piping hot Cornbread! If you use a small cast iron skillet just cut the recipe in half and it comes out just right for the skillet size. What a dinner tonight! For Dessert later a 100 Calorie Mini Bag of Snyder’s Pretzels with a Diet Dr. Pepper to drink.

Today’s Menu: Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans

 

 

To start this Thursday morning off I prepared a cup of Bigelow Decaf Green Tea. Light rain, light snow and a high of 33 degrees. After I had my Tea I went to the Bank ATM, got gas, and picked up Breakfast for Mom. Well be getting a new neighbor. A lady that lived across the street moved out and another lady is moving in Saturday. For some reason that home sales every few years. We live in a good neighborhood here, everyone is really good people. So lucky! So for Dinner tonight one of our favorite meals, Fried Chicken Thighs w/ Fried Potatoes and Canned Green Beans.

 

We just can’t seem to have Fried Chicken Thighs without Fried Potatoes and Green Beans! I had the Chicken Thighs in the freezer and grabbed a package last night and let it thaw in the fridge overnight. To prepare them I’ll just need Flour, Morton’s Lite Salt, Ground Pepper, and Extra Light Olive Oil. I think the trio of Fried Chicken Thighs, Fried Potatoes, and Canned Green Beans were meant to be together, one of our favorite meals!

 

I got a large Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it with a light coat of Pam Non Stick Spray, added 1 1/2 tablespoons of Extra Light Olive Oil, and heated it on medium heat. As the skillet was heating I got a pie pan out and put 2 tablespoons of Flour in it. Next I got the Chicken Thighs out of the package and seasoned them with Salt and Pepper and rolled them in the Flour. With the skillet heated I added the Thighs to the skillet and put a lid on the skillet. Fried the Thighs for about 9 minutes and then flipped them over, put the lid back on the skillet to cook another 7 minutes. As the Chicken Thighs were cooking I got out a second Cast Iron Skillet, sprayed it, added the Olive Oil and let it preheat on medium heat. Then I washed and cut the Potatoes for the Fried Potatoes.

 

For one side we had Fried Potatoes, which I picked up at Meijer the other day. I love these and Mom makes the best! I bought a bag of Medium Size Red Potatoes, which we’ll be using. To prepare them; first wash the Whole Potatoes and dry with a paper towel. Next grab a Cast Iron Skillet and add 1 tablespoon of Extra Light Olive Oil and heat the Skillet on medium high.

 

 

With the skillet heated add the Potatoes. After adding the Potatoes add your Seasoning, we just used Salt and Pepper. Then fry until the Potatoes start to turn brown. Then flip them with a spatula and continue frying until done. I love these Potatoes and they are so easy to prepare.

 

I had opened up a quart jar of Canned Green Beans and had them already cooking. I love these Green Beans. They always taste so fresh! Just heat them up in a large sauce pan and serve. One delicious Dinner as always when having the Chicken Thighs! For Dessert/Snack later I had a Jello Sugar Free Dark Cherry Jello.

Wild Mushroom Pie with Smoked Baby Swiss Crust
This superb recipe for Wild Mushroom Pie with Smoked Baby Swiss Crust was developed by Chefs Greg and Mary Sonnier.

 

Recipe Ingredients:
Crust:
6 tablespoons solid vegetable shortening
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon granulated sugar
1 cup grated smoked baby Swiss cheese
7 tablespoons ice-cold water

Filling:
3 quarts salted water
6 cups chopped fresh greens, such as turnip, Swiss chard, or spinach
8 ounces sliced mushrooms, such as chanterelles, oyster, shiitake, or cremini
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 1/2 cups chopped onions
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup butter
1 cup warm milk
1 cup warm half-and-half
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1/2 cup grated Swiss cheese
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 egg yolk
1 tablespoon cream

Cooking Directions:
1 – For Crust: Flatten the shortening into a disk on a piece of plastic wrap; wrap and freeze. Cut the unsalted butter into small cubes; wrap and freeze for 1/2 hour.
2 – Place the flour, cayenne, salt, and sugar in a food processor and pulse 2 times for 1 to 2 seconds each time. Scatter the frozen butter cubes over the flour and pulse about 8 times. Break up the frozen shortening over the flour mixture and pulse 6 times. Add the cheese and pulse 3 times. Pour the cold water over the pastry mixture and pulse 6 to 8 times, just until the dough comes together.
3 – Place the pastry on a floured surface, pressing to form a ball. Divide and shape the dough into 2 disks, one slightly larger than the other. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 1 hour and up to 3 days.
4 – For Filling: Bring 3 quarts of salted water to a boil. Boil the greens for 3 minutes. Drain and plunge the greens into ice water. Drain well, squeezing all of the water out of the greens. Set aside.
5 – In a 5-quart Dutch oven, sauté the mushrooms in the olive oil over high heat until softened, 2 to 3 minutes. Remove from the pot; set aside.
6 – Add the butter and onions to the pot. Sauté 4 to 5 minutes or until the onions are translucent. Sprinkle flour over the onions. Stir and cook 2 minutes. Slowly stir in the warm milk and half-and-half. Cook until bubbly and thick, stirring constantly. Stir in the salt, pepper, cayenne, and nutmeg. Remove from the heat. Stir in the greens and mushrooms. Add the cheese and lemon juice, and stir. Cool 30 minutes.
7 – To complete the pie, heat the oven to 350°F (175°C). On a floured surface, roll out the larger disk to an 11-inch circle. Press into a 9-inch pie plate. Roll the other disk to a 9 1/2-inch circle. Pour the filling into the prepared pie crust. Top with the smaller crust. Trim the edges and crimp.
8 – Mix the egg yolk and cream. Brush over the top of the pie crust. Cut 5 slits in the top crust. Place the pie on a baking sheet. Bake for 30 minutes.
9 – Reduce the oven temperature to 325°F (160°C). Bake for 40 to 50 minutes longer, until the pie is golden brown. Allow the pie to rest at least 20 minutes before cutting.
Makes 8 servings.
