One of America’s Favorites – Custard Pie

November 2, 2020 at 6:02 AM | Posted in One of America's Favorites | 2 Comments

Custard pie – A coconut cream pie

A custard pie is any type of uncooked custard mixture added to an uncooked or partially cooked crust and baked together. In North America, custard pie commonly refers to a plain mixture of milk, eggs, sugar, salt, vanilla extract and sometimes nutmeg combined with a pie crust. It is distinctly different from a cream pie, which contains cooked custard poured into a cooled, precooked crust. In the United Kingdom, the comical or political act of pieing is conventionally done with a “custard pie”. Some common custard pies include pumpkin pie, lemon and buttermilk chess pie, coconut cream pie, and buko pie. True custard is defined as a liquid thickened with eggs. Due to the often large number of whole eggs in custard pie it is a very rich pie.

The Ancient Romans were the first to understand the binding properties of eggs. During the Middle Ages, the first custard pies, as we know them, began to appear. Initially, custards were used only as fillings for pies, pastries and tarts. Both Europe and Asia had recipes that contained custards. The word custard is derived from ‘crustade’ which is a tart with a crust. After the 16th century, custards began to be used in individual dishes rather than as a filling in crusts.

Today, custards are used as filling in pies and tarts, and as individual dishes. Ideally a custard pie should be light and delicate, but still have good body. Custards can be made in two ways: baked or stirred upon the stove, but most custard pie recipes call for baking. The eggs in custard mixtures, when cooked, turn from liquid to solid. If cooked over excessive heat, the eggs will curdle, which is extremely undesirable. Curdling can be prevented by using lower temperatures and stirring. As such, making true custard pie is a very delicate process.

A slice of pear custard pie

Savory pies with meat fillings were far more common than sweet pies in the Cuisine of the Thirteen Colonies. Sweet pies, when they were available, were made with a simple custard base of fresh milk, sugar and eggs. Some of these traditional pies like buttermilk pie, almond custard, Irish potato pie and bean pie (associated with the Nation of Islam) are uncommon in modern times.

 

 

One of America’s Favorites – Scrambled Eggs

Scrambled eggs with grated cheese.

Scrambled eggs is a dish made from whites and yolks of eggs (usually chicken eggs) stirred or beaten together, typically with salt and butter and variable other ingredients, and then gently heated in a pan while being stirred.

Only eggs are necessary to make scrambled eggs, but nearly always salt is used, and very often other ingredients such as water, milk, butter, cream or in some cases creme fraiche or grated cheese may be added. The eggs are cracked into a bowl; with some salt, and the mixture is stirred or whisked. More consistent and far quicker results are obtained if a small amount of thickener such as cornstarch, potato starch or flour is added; this enables much quicker cooking with reduced risk of overcooking, even when less butter is used.

The mixture can be poured into a hot pan containing melted butter or oil, where it starts coagulating. The heat is turned down and the eggs are stirred as they cook. This creates small, soft curds of egg. Unlike pancake or omelette scrambled egg is virtually never browned.

Once the liquid has mostly set, additional ingredients such as ham, herbs, cheese or cream may be folded in over low heat, just until incorporated. The eggs are usually slightly undercooked when removed from heat, since the eggs will continue to set. If any liquid is seeping from the eggs (syneresis), this is a sign of undercooking, overcooking or adding undercooked high-moisture vegetables.

Scrambled eggs with bacon and pancakes

Variations
* English style. In English style the scrambled eggs are stirred very thoroughly during cooking to give a soft, fine texture
* American style – In American style the eggs are scooped in towards the middle of the pan as they set, giving larger curds.
* Scrambled eggs can be made easily sous-vide, which gives the traditional smooth creamy texture and requires only occasionally mixing during cooking.
* Another technique for cooking creamy scrambled eggs is to pipe steam into eggs with butter via a steam wand (as found on an espresso machine).
* Scrambled eggs can also be cooked in a Microwave oven.

 

Classical haute cuisine preparation calls for serving scrambled eggs in a deep silver dish. They can also be presented in small croustades made from hollowed-out brioche or tartlets. When eaten for breakfast, scrambled eggs often accompany toast, bacon, smoked salmon, hash browns, cob, pancakes, ham or sausages. Popular condiments served with scrambled eggs include ketchup, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce.

Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , ,

This week’s Wild Idea Buffalo Recipe of the Week is – BISON LIVER TACOS. Now this is a different Taco! These are made using Wild Idea Buffalo Liver, Onion, Milk, Red Chili Sauce, Olive Oil, Butter, White Corn Tortillas, Organic Mexican Shredded Cheese Blend, Goat Cheese, and Vegetable Pico De Gallo. Bring on the Tacos! You can find this recipe and purchase the Wild Idea Buffalo Liver along with all the other Wild Idea Products at the Wild Idea Buffalo website. So Enjoy and Eat Healthy in 2020! https://wildideabuffalo.com/

BISON LIVER TACOS
Wild Idea’s Buffalo Liver is clean and rich, but it also is able to absorb the flavor of a marinade. I added a bit of adobo to my red chili sauce for a little smokiness and then offset/complemented that with a vegetable pico de gallo. It’s sooooo good!
For a super quick short cut, you could substitute purchased red chili sauce and pico de gallo.

Taco Ingredients: (6 to 8 tacos, 3 to 4 servings)

BISON LIVER TACOS

1 – 8 oz. pkg. Wild Idea Buffalo Liver
1 – onion, halved and sliced thin
1 – cup milk
1 – cup red chili sauce (recipe below)
Olive oil
Butter
6 to 8 – white corn tortillas
Organic Mexican shredded cheese blend
Goat cheese
Vegetable pico de gallo

Preparation:

1 – Rinse the liver under cold water and place it in a bowl with the milk, cover and let it soak in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours.
2 – Remove the liver from the milk, rinse again under cold water and pat dry. Cut the liver pieces into smaller julienne pieces.
3 – Place the sliced liver in a bowl with the red chili sauce and let it marinade for 6 to 24 hours.
4 – Remove the liver from the red chili sauce and place on a paper towel to absorb any liquid.
5 – In a skillet over medium high heat add about 2 tablespoons of olive oil, a tablespoon of butter and the sliced onion. Season with salt and pepper and sauté until tender and slightly caramelized.
6 – Add the sliced liver and sauté until the liver is lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat.
7 – On a flat top griddle or in a pan, drizzle a little olive oil and heat. Lightly brown the tortillas and turn. Top with grated cheese while the bottom side is browning. Remove from the griddle/pan.
8 – Top the tortillas with the liver and onions, Pico de Gallo and crumbled goat cheese.
9 – For side dishes, I accompanied the tacos with a cucumber salad and sliced cantaloupe.

Red Chili Sauce

Ingredients:
3 – dried ancho chilies
3 – dried guajillo or Anaheim chilies
3 – cloves garlic
¼ – onion, chopped
2 – cups boiling water
1 – tablespoons olive oil
2 – tablespoons cider vinegar
1 – tablespoon Jill’s Mexican Seasonings or Mexican seasonings
1 – teaspoon sugar

Preparation:

Remove stems and seeds from the dried chilies.
Boil two cups of water and place the dried chilies, garlic cloves and onion in the pot, cover and remove the pot from the heat, allowing the chilies to soften for one hour.
Return the pot to the stove over high heat, heating until small bubbles break the surface.
Pour the liquid and the vegetables into a blender and add the remaining ingredients. Puree until smooth, adding more hot water if needed.
Strain the red chili sauce through a strainer to remove any chili skins.
Season to taste. Serve warm or room temp.
Vegetable Pico de Gallo
So good, you just need a spoon!

Ingredients:
1- cup finely diced cherry tomatoes, *optional – seeds removed
½ – cup finely diced onion, white, red or green onions
½ – cup finely chopped cilantro
1 – small jalapeno pepper, finely diced
½ – cup finely diced, red cabbage
½ – cup finely diced, carrots
