  Subject: Eggnog Pie with Coconut Crust


 Dear Phaedrus,

I am looking for a recipe that was in Southern Living magazine 
back in the 80's.  It was an Eggnog Pie with Coconut Crust.  This 
recipe was in an ad for Baker's Coconut.  I did find the crust 
recipe, but not the filling.  I remember that the filling had at 
least 1/4 cup of rum in it.  Could you find this for me?  I might 
be able to wing it since I have the recipe for the crust, but I
would prefer to have the correct recipe.  Thanks so much!

Hi Karen,

Well, searches on the web revealed nothing. Neither "Southern Living" nor "Baker's coconut" brought any success. However, I did discover an eggnog pie recipe with a coconut crust, and it even calls for Baker's coconut and 1/2 cup of rum! Hopefully, it's the right one. It's the only one I could find.

Hello Erma,

I did quite a lot of searching, but the only cucumber pickle recipe with mint that I could find is the one below.

Phaed

  Lime-Mint Freezer Pickles

  2 1/2 pounds pickling cucumbers
  3 tablespoons pickling salt
  1/2 cup sliced onion
  1 small red bell pepper, cored, seeded, cut into 2-inch-long matchsticks
  Grated zest of 1 lime
  2 garlic cloves, minced
  1/4 cup minced fresh mint leaves
  1 1/2 cups sugar
  1 1/2 cups distilled white vinegar

  Gently wash cucumbers and thinly slice, discarding a slice from both 
  ends of each cucumber. You should have about 8 cups. In a large, 
  nonreactive bowl, toss the cucumber slices with salt. Let stand 2 to 3 
  hours. Drain.
  In a large, nonreactive bowl, stir together the remaining ingredients. 
  Pour over cucumbers and stir well. Cover and refrigerate 8 to 10 hours.
  Pack the mixture and syrup in freezer bags or rigid containers and 
  freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator 8 hours before serving.

  Makes 4 pints; analysis per 1/2-cup serving

Saccharin Pickles

Hello Phaedrus,

My grandparents in Massachusetts used to make these from their garden. I am
pretty sure they used small Kirby cucumbers, about 4-5 inches in length,
not Gherkins, etc..  They had a big ceramic pot of brine (see
below) on the pantry counter, and all the fresh cucumbers of the proper size
went in the pot, to pickle for up to two weeks. [I remember dipping into the
pot as needed, and that the “older” ones were eaten nearly every day, even
if they were less than two weeks cured.] As I recall, you could judge the
age by the color. My grandparents never canned or “put up” these pickles,
although they did so many other garden items. I am starting a batch this
week, so we shall see if my memory serves correctly. I have a recipe that I
copied from my grandmother’s back in the late 1960’s or early 1970’s. I have
made them once or twice since then.

____________________________________________________________________________ Brine: 1 gallon white vinegar 1 cup coarse rock/pickling salt 1 cup sugar 1 cup powdered mustard 1/4 TEASPOON Saccharin – TO TASTE (2 teaspoons was way too much) horseradish root – One Whole One With Skin Scraped Off Use very fresh Kirby cucumbers, wash well, and put them in the brine with a cover on the ceramic pot. Cure two weeks, stirring on occasion, and eat ASAP. That’s all. ____________________________________________________________________________

I have seen recipes like this, but not exactly the same. The pickles have a
good “bite,” so they do not go with everything. I suppose these would keep
in the ‘fridge a while longer. I think that canning them with heat would
lessen the crunchiness. Never tried it.

Good luck, and thanks for the other recipes.

Peter
 

Thanks, Peter!

Hi Rhoda,

Well, these sites all advertise sugar-free chocolate chips. They all seem to be selling the same brand - Darrel Leigh, made in Australia:

http://www.lowcarbnexus.com/Item_DLC1.htm

http://www.sugarfreecandyzone.com/

http://www.netrition.com/darrell_lea_chocolate_bar_page.html

http://www.iasusa.com/allen/toppings.sense.html

http://www.synergydiet.com/splenchocchi.html

I wondered why there weren't more brands available, and from reading on various diabetic sites, I find that most diabetic recipes don't call for "sugar-free" chocolate chips. Instead they use unsweetened chocolate chips for the chocolate flavor and get the sweetener from the sugar substitute in the recipe, which is a much easier way to accomplish the same goal. Unsweetened is completely different from "sugar free". Unsweetened has no sugar and no artificial sweetener.

  3 tb Habanero Sauce
  3 tb Tabasco Sauce
 Ground Red Pepper to taste
  1 tb White Vinegar
1/4 c  Brown Sugar
  1 c  Bleu Cheese Salad Dressing
 Leaf Lettuce for platter


These chicken wings are quite easy to prepare. Adjust the amount of Tabasco
sauce and Habanero sauce to your own tastes.  I recommend though that you
just cool them by dipping them in the bleu cheese salad dressing rather
than decreasing the hot sauces.


* Preheat oven to 375oF. 
* In a medium sized mixing bowl combine vegetable oil, garlic powder, 
  Tabasco sauce, habanero sauce, vinegar and brown sugar. 
* Separate tips from wings. * Place tips and wings on cookie sheet(s). 
* Using a pastry brush, coat the wings with the sauce mixture. 
* Sprinkle ground red pepper over wings and tips. 
* Bake wings for 15 to 20 minutes or until browning has occurred. 
* Arrange wings on leaf lettuce and serve with your favorite beverage. 
* Dip wings in bleu cheese salad dressing for some cooling effect.


NOTE: These wings can also be cooked on the barbecue. Wings should be
grilled for the same amount of time over medium high heat coals.

  15)Title: Buffalo Baked Chicken Wings
Categories: Chicken, Wings, Cheese
  Yield: 1 servings


 18 24 chicken wings
1/2 c  Unsalted margarine, melted
  6 T  Hot pepper sauce
 -cayenne pepper to taste
 -celery sticks
 -blue cheese dressing of your choice


  In this version, the wings taste especially good because they are baked,
  not fried.  According to the Love Chef, Buffalo Chicken Wings were frits
  served at the Anchor Bar in Buffalo, New York, in 1964. For mild wings, use
  just a dash of cayenne pepper and for hot wings, use 1/8 tsp cayenne. For
  RED-HOT wings, use 1/4 tsp.


  Preheat the oven to 425F.  Place the wings on a rack in a baking pan and
  bake for 10 minutes.  Remove the pan from the oven and reduce the heat to
  400F.  In a small bowl, stir together the margarine, hot pepper sauce, and
  cayenne pepper.  Remove a small amount of the sauce and brush it onto the
  wings.  Bake the wings for 10-12 minutes longer, or until crispy and cooked
  through.  Pour the remaining sauce over the wings. Serve the wings with
  celery sticks and blue cheese dressing on the side. Makes 4-6 appetizer
  servings.

  16)Title: Oriental Hot Wings
Categories: Oriental, Wings, Appetizers, Spicy
  Yield: 1 servings

  Combine the following ingredients to make a marinade:

  1cup soy sauce
  1/2 cup sugar
  1/4 cup sesame seeds
  1 Tbsp cayenne pepper

  Cut 2-3 lbs of wings into 3 pieces.  Discard the wingtips and marinate the
  remaining pieces for at least 30 minutes.  Agitate the pieces occasionally
  while they are marinating.

  Cover a cookie pan with foil and, using tongs, place the marinated wing
  pieces on it.I suggest using a cookie PAN, as opposed to a sheet,
  because the sides will insure that none of the marinade mixture drips off
  the edge and screws up your oven.  There should be a slight separation
  between each individual piece so they don't stick together.

  Cook for one hour at 350 F, turning the wing pieces every 10 minutes.  If
  you want them to come out nice and even, you need to turn them individually
  with a pair of tongs.  If you don't turn them, they'll stick and burn on
  one side.

  After they are done, let stand for at least 20 minutes.  Serve hot or at
  room temperature.
