Extract

Products based on the aromatic essential oils of plant materials that are distilled by various means. In extracts, the highly concentrated oils usually are suspended in alcohol to make them easier to combine with other foods in cooking and baking. Almond, anise, lemon, mint, orange, peppermint, and vanilla are some of the pure extracts sold.

Recipes

  3. How to Make Perfect Fudge in the Slow Cooker

    Fri, 6 Jun 2014

    I started reading about Intermittent Fasting this week which naturally got me to find a way to make fudge. I know.  I don't understand me, either. Don't wait until the Holiday season to make fudge again. This is SO easy a four-year-old could do it (unless her mom shoos her out of the kitchen so nobody knows how much fudge got eaten in the name of Quality Control). The Ingredients serves 10-20 (or Adam and Me on date night) 3 cups semi sweet chocolate chips  1 (14-ounce) can sweetened condensed milk 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract 1 tablespoon salted butter cooking spray to spray down the crock parchment paper or non-stick foil to line a 9 x 9 baking pan The Directions Use a 4-quart slow cooker. If you only have a 6-quart, that's okay, but it will melt faster, so keep an eye on your chocolate. Spray the crock well with cooking spray (if you are using a Ninja , I'd still spray it down).  Dump everything into the pot. Cover, and cook on high for about 1 hour, or on low for about 2 hours. Stir every 30 minutes. Once the chocolate has lost it's form and can be stirred into a liquid state, spread it out into a lined 9 x 9 baking pan. Chill in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 4 hours) before cutting into bite-sized squares. The Verdict It's perfect. I wondered how the consistency would be without marshmallow fluff, but the condensed milk made the same sort of smooth texture with the chocolate as I wanted.  Because the mixture doesn't need to get boiled to a candy-making boiling point, this is a great recipe for kids. If you'd like to, go ahead and add chopped nuts or candy canes for a peppermint version.
