4  COOKING / Recipes and Cooking Tips / Re: How Do you Dry Out Oranges? on: October 19, 2008 02:39:04 PM
i know how to make candied oranges if you wanna try that....
make a simple syrup out of equal parts of sugar and water....bring it to a boil...
add in the orange slices and cook over medium heat turning them every once in a while,
when the oranges are translucent, this will take about 20 min,  lower the heat
and cook them for 10 more minutes or until the syrup has thickened, then take them out
with a fork and cool them on a cooling rack....or parchment paper...
don't be quick to throw the liquid away, the liquid has been infused with the orange zest, its wonderful with tea Grin

thanks so much for all the replies  Grin

fluffybaka- the difference between an opera cake and tiramisu: tiramisu is made with lady fingers, a sponge cookie, instead of sponge cake...also, tiramisu has mascarpone cheese in it and the opera cake has a coffee flavored buttercream in it...

mcjulie-o- the coconut macaroons were not cut out with a cookie cutter..we cut a wide opening at the tip of a pastry bag and pushed it out, not piped it out because the dough for the macaroons is too dense for that,  and cut it with an offset spatula....worked out pretty good..

lelyonna- i'll get you the lavender strawberry sorbet recipe sometime this week...however, i'm gonna be honest about my work, i didn't really like the texture of it..

viri- when we learned the history of the dobo's they told us it was hungarian, but they told us since the top layer was cut up and individually decorated they had to add the word torte because that's what it means in german, so i guess both could be right??? thanks for clearing it up though and for the link  Grin

and to everyone that wanted to be my friend....i have a lot of products to test so you're more than welcome to be my friend...

again thanks for taking the time to look and reply  Grin

yes, you can...add in a little sugar so it doesn't make the almonds into a paste....
