When buying celery………………..

Buy fresh celery, choose firm, tightly packed stalks with medium-thick ribs that are crisp enough to break apart easily. The leaves should not be wilted and they should be a bright, yet pale green color.

Then what’s the best way to keep celery fresh? For the best results, keep celery heads whole, wrap them up tightly in aluminum foil, and then keep them in the refrigerator crisper drawer as usual. When stored this way, celery stalks can maintain their freshness anywhere from two to four weeks.

Buying Asparagus…………………………………

Stalks should be plump and firm, and tips should be tightly closed. Colors can be green, purple, or white, depending on the variety. Make sure the color is not faded. A good grocer will chill asparagus or store it standing upright in cold, fresh water.

And did you know: Asparagus is low in calories and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and K. Additionally, eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestion, healthy pregnancy outcomes and lower blood pressure.

Widen that Burger…………………………….

When making burgers, always press the patties 1 inch wider than the diameter of your bun with the center being slightly thinner than the edges. As the meat cooks and the fat renders, the patties will shrink and pull to the center of the burger. If you compensate for this during patty construction, you’ll end up with perfectly uniform burger.

Pork and Plum Kabobs
With the summer sun shining, there’s no better time to get out and get grilling! These juicy kabobs combine seasoned, slightly spicy pork with peak-season plums for a sweet and savory dish that can’t be beat. Pair with a crisp, cool salad for a perfect complement to barbecue season.

Ingredients
3/4 pound boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick), trimmed and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1/4 cup sliced green onions
1/4 cup raspberry fruit spread
1 tablespoon orange juice
3 plums or nectarines, pitted and cut into wedges

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 2 kabobs

1 – Place pork in large resealable food storage bag. Combine cumin, cinnamon, salt, garlic powder, and red pepper in small bowl; pour over pork. Seal bag; shake to coat meat with spices.

2 – Combine green onions, fruit spread, and orange juice in small bowl; set aside.

3 – Prepare grill for direct cooking. Alternately thread pork and plum wedges onto eight skewers.* Grill kabobs over medium heat 12 to 14 minutes or until meat is cooked through, turning once. Brush frequently with raspberry mixture during last 5 minutes of grilling.

How do you keep egg rolls from getting soggy…………………….

Try wrapping the egg rolls in aluminum foil and seal in a plastic bag in the freezer—this will keep them moist. If the egg rolls have already been deep-fried, wait until they have cooled before freezing.

One of America’s Favorites – Hotdish

A tater tot hotdish

A hotdish is a dish that typically contains a starch, a meat, and a canned or frozen vegetable mixed with canned soup. The dish is usually made with ground beef over tater tots with cream of mushroom soup, but some versions in Minnesota use the official state grain wild rice, or even macaroni, in place of the taters. The dish originates in the Upper Midwest region of the United States, where it remains popular, particularly in Minnesota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and North Dakota. Hotdish is cooked in a single baking dish, and served hot (per its name). It commonly appears at communal gatherings such as family reunions, potlucks and church suppers.

The history of the hotdish goes back to when “budget-minded farm wives needed to feed their own families, as well as congregations in the basements of the first Minnesota churches.” According to Howard Mohr, author of How to Talk Minnesotan, “A traditional main course, hotdish is cooked and served hot in a single baking dish and commonly appears at family reunions and church suppers.” The most typical meat for many years has been ground beef, and cream of mushroom remains the favorite canned soup. In past years a pasta was the most frequently used starch, but tater tots and local wild rice have now become very popular as well.

Hotdishes are filling, convenient, and easy to make. They are well-suited for family reunions, funerals, church suppers, and potlucks where they may be paired with potato salad, coleslaw, Jello salads and desserts, and pan-baked desserts known as bars.

Typical ingredients in hotdish are potatoes or pasta, ground beef, green beans, and corn, with canned soup added as a binder, flavoring and sauce. Potatoes may be in the form of tater tots, hash browns, potato chips, or shoe string potatoes. The dish is usually seasoned lightly with salt and pepper, and it may be eaten with ketchup as a condiment. Another popular hotdish is the tuna hotdish, made with macaroni or egg noodles, canned tuna, peas, and mushroom soup. Also common is a dish known as goulash, though it bears no resemblance to the familiar Hungarian goulash. Minnesota goulash is usually made with ground beef, macaroni, canned tomatoes, and perhaps a can of creamed corn.

Cream of mushroom soup is so ubiquitous in hotdish that it is often referred to in such recipes as “Lutheran Binder,” referring to hotdish’s position as a staple of Lutheran church cookbooks. The soup is considered a defining ingredient by some commentators.

Tater Tot Hotdish from the Saint Paul, Minnesota, Winter Carnival

Hotdish frequently appears, along with other stereotypical Minnesotan dishes such as lutefisk, in the radio program

A Prairie Home Companion. Hotdish is also described in Howard Mohr’s book How to Talk Minnesotan. Hotdish is an integral element of the book Hotdish to Die For, a collection of six culinary mystery short stories in which the weapon of choice is hotdish

Minnesota public television station, KSMQ in Austin, Minnesota, has produced a 2012 documentary video entitled “Minnesota Hotdish.” providing a historical and humorous look at the popular church supper and family gathering staple.

Hotdish was also the main meal featured in the comedy-drama film “Manny & Lo”.

“Hot Dish” is also the name of an Anchorage-based blue grass band, hotdishbluegrass.com. Their band name was chosen with a nod to mid-western roots of three of the five band members.
