This entry was posted in Beverages, Foods by Cleave on

The following is from a very VERY old site I used to have, Celtic Voice, not up anymore. It shows 2 of my recipes for the alcoholic beverage known as mead, or honey wine. I am sure those in the SCA will remember some of this.

Maple Blondie – A coffee cocktail

This entry was posted in Foods, General Musings, Health & Food by Snowfoxx on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeWell, I’m sure we’ve all felt the clipper this week, but here is something sweet and warm from Musings to help you heat up this weekend

Maple Blondie

8oz hot coffee
1 tsp maple syrup
1 tsp sugar
Dash of vanilla extract
2 tsp half and half
1 shot of silver rum

How to mix this is very simple. You will first pour the half and half into the mug then add the maple, the vanilla, and the sugar to the half and half. Pour half the coffee you are going to use into the mix, the add your rum, and then stir in to rest of the coffee. A simpler recipe there could not be for a cold winter’s day or any day of the year!

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150This ketchup is the very best that I can ever remember tasting. It is clean, light and yet bold as well. It has a smooth flavor that will make you never want to have another type of ketchup ever. This is what the condiment tomato sauce should taste like and is better than any store bought I can remember. Once you try this flavorful to die for ketchup you won’t want another kind ever.

Ingredients for TDF Honey Ketchup

6 oz. tomato paste
1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup rice vinegar*
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. finely minced sweet onion
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. nutmeg
1/8 tsp. powdered clove
1/8 tsp. powdered ginger
1/2 tsp. basil (can be minced up with the onion)

*I use rice vinegar because white vinegar is made from corn.

Home Made Baking Powder

Recipes_From_The_Fridge-150x150Here is an easy recipe to be able to make baking powder. It is just three simple ingredients and taste so much better than the store bought. Personally I think that it works better as well.

The reason that I have started making my own baking powder is due to allergies. This recipe makes sure that the food products that I am sensitive to are not used in my diet. I will probably keep using this recipe even if they were to remove what I am sensitive to out of the store brand baking powders. This will also be a great recipe for those that are highly sensitive to corn products. Even if the recipe and ingredients below are unusable by them, they will be able to to use the recipe, just make sure that the ingredients are safe for them to use.

Home Made Baking PowderIngredients
1 tsp. Baking Soda (any brand that you are comfortable using)
2 tsp. Cream of Tartar (usually a byproduct of winemaking)
1 tsp. Starch (potato – rice – tapioca or other starch)

Tangy Sweet Mustard

This entry was posted in Foods by Cleave on

Recipes_From_The_FridgeThis recipe is actually from my first experiments in making a mustard sauce. It is the third generation of the recipe but is still very close to the original formula. It is thick, goopy and yet oh so good to eat. It is both sweet and yet tangy at the same time, giving you the best of both worlds when it comes to mustard sauce. Anyone who tastes it is constantly asking where to get it. They are shocked when I tell them that it is homemade. The wife loves it, need I say more?

Tangy Sweet Mustard Sauce Ingredients
4 tbsp. ground mustard powder
1 tbsp. mustard seed (cracked)
1/8 tsp. paprika
1/4 tsp. garlic powder
1/8 tsp. turmeric
1/4 tsp. wasabi powder
1 tsp. sea salt (up to 1/4 tsp. more to taste)
1/4 tsp. black pepper
1 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tbsp. honey
1/2 tbsp. sweet pickle juice
2 tbsp. water
1/4 cup. rice vinegar
