A little about my favorite Oil…………………..

Olive Oil – Olive oil has long been acknowledged as a heart-healthy fat. One compound thought to play a role in supporting heart health is oleic acid, a type of monounsaturated fat found in high quantities in olive oil.

Storing Mushrooms……………………

Store mushrooms in original packaging or in a porous paper bag for prolonged shelf life. Some mushrooms may keep for up to one week in the refrigerator. Fresh mushrooms should never be frozen, but frozen sautéed mushrooms will keep for up to one month.

Cooking concentrates their woodsy flavor and aroma, making them a natural for a variety of recipes. Baked, sauteed, stuffed, in stews and sauces, atop pizza, or slathered on a steak, their rich taste is distinctive and comforting. Love those Mushrooms!

When canning leave the peel on………………

Canning tomatoes, pears, and plums without peeling them preserves the nutrients, prevents waste, and saves time. If you don’t prefer the texture of the peel, then by all means, remove it. But if you don’t mind it, there’s no reason not to keep it on. That being said, some fruits and vegetables should definitely be peeled:

* Peaches – canning peaches with a fuzzy peel is generally not as appetizing

* Citrus fruits – the peel on oranges, limes, lemons, and so on is bitter

* Beets – the peel is just too tough

Eat the skin………………

All fruits and veggies have nutrient and fiber dense skin, so if you have tender product don’t bother peeling them. Just make sure it is washed well. Carrots, sweet potatoes and beets all roast up great skin on.

Meat Grades…………………..

Meat grading is a voluntary system used as a guideline to identify the tenderness, marbling and overall palatability of the meat. Lower grades of meat are not less nutritious and often tend to be leaner and better for you. In order of best first, here are the common consumer grades:

* U.S. Prime – best grade of beef which comes from steers, heifers or young bulls. This is a small percentage of the meat that is produced in the U.S. Most of this goes to restaurants.
* U.S. Choice – Less marbling than prime, choice cuts can come from steers, heifers, cows or young bulls. Used in restaurants as well as consumer retail.
* U.S. Select – The least expensive of the common grades, usually leaner, less marbled meats. Select cuts come from the same animals as choice cuts.
