Mislabeling of Foods: The Questions to Ask and the Information to Know

Mislabeling of Foods: The Questions to Ask and the Information to Know | Max's Snax | Scoop.it
With an increased awareness of food in our culture, buzzwords are showing up on labels and menus left and right. And aside from the terms that are USDA regulated, it's near impossible to know what is true.
Max Hansen's insight:

This is a useful resource to know the real meaning of the terms we so often hear, "free range", "organic", "antibiotic-free".  Thanks to Ariane Daguin, the founder and owner of D'Artagnan.

Funghi trifolati - Sautéed Mushrooms

Funghi trifolati - Sautéed Mushrooms | Max's Snax | Scoop.it

This is one of the easiest and most versatile vegetable dishes in the Italian repertoire: funghi trifolati, or ‘truffled’ mushooms, so called because the thinly sliced and sautéed mushrooms are said to resemble that other, more highly prized tuber. I use two methods to make funghi trifolati, and both are equally easy:
Using the traditional recipe (pictured above), you thinly slice your mushrooms, then sauté them over a lively flame in olive oil and a clove of garlic. (If you want a little heat, you can add a peperoncino or some red pepper flakes.) Sprinkle the mushroom slices with a pinch of salt right away—this will cause the mushroom to exude its juices. In just a few minutes, the juices will evaporate and you will begin to hear the mushrooms start to sizzle and lightly brown. Once that happens, add some finely chopped parsley and, if you like, freshly ground pepper, and serve.
I also like to use a more ‘refined’ variation: you sauté the mushroom slices in a mixture of olive oil and butter (omitting the garlic) and when you get to the sizzling stage, add finely chopped shallot and parsley. Sauté a minute or two further to cook the shallot and serve.

Homemade Sriracha | Reclaiming Provincial

Homemade Sriracha | Reclaiming Provincial | Max's Snax | Scoop.it

"I have been obsessing over making this stuff for nearly eight months, ever since Joshua Bousel detailed his experiments with homemade Sriracha on Serious Eats. I planned my entire garden around it, sacrificing what would have been a variety of peppers to grow only jalapeños. And then I waited, and waited, and WAITED for those darn peppers to turn from green to red. Being an impatient person, I also spent my Saturday mornings elbow-deep in Half Pint Farm’s hot pepper bin at the market, collecting every last red jalapeño I could find."-
