What are your preferred recipes for mulled wine?
Recently I bought a bottle of red blend wine that turned out not to be to my taste for drinking, but I don't want to just pour the whole bottle out since I've only had a glass. The thought occurred to me that I could try my hand at making mulled wine, but the amount of recipes out there were a bit daunting. So I turn to y'all for help.
I have a chili recipe I'm wanting to try that calls for one cup of frozen lima beans (plus canned pintos and various other ingredients). Unfortunately, while I can find dried limas and possibly canned, I can't locate frozen. Is there a problem with soaking dried limas and subbing them for the frozen? Or can I soak, cook, and freeze them if they're dried and not fresh?
The only frozen bean I can be sure of finding, apart from string beans/waxed beans, are edamame.
I've never been good at figuring out the cooked yield (in cups) from dry/raw ingredients. If I want to use 168g (roughly 6 oz) bags of shiratiki noodles to replace 8 oz of dry noodles, how many bags/drained cups of noodles should I use?
Cherry-Walnut Sauce for Ham
2 cups canned sour cherries in water, liquid reserved. [I used 2 15-oz cans and ended up a little over 2 cups, worked fine]
2 tb cornstarch
1/3 cup sugar
1/8 ts salt
2 tb lemon juice (about half a largeish lemon)
1/3 cup broken walnut meats
Pour liquid from cherries into a saucepan. Add cornstarch, sugar, salt and lemon juice, stir well to mix, and cook over medium heat, stirring until thick and clear. Add nuts and cherries. Bring to a boil, check to see if it needs salt or a little extra lemon juice, and serve hot.
This would probably go well with lamb or duck as well.
I hadn't made this in ages and figured this was as good a time as any to try it again. Delicious and easy.
At a breakfast buffet this past weekend, I accidentally wound up combining the two in a chocolate-in-my-peanut-butter incident; the combination was unexpectedly glorious. Not a recipe so much as a suggestion: a peanut-butter-and-blueberry sandwich could be a potential quick breakfast or school lunchbox item.
