Amanatsu Marmalade Jam

serve it with cottage cheese on slice of bread.

Got organic Amanatsu citrus and made marmalade jam. I like bitter taste of the peels, so I didn't drain out of the boiling water many times.
I totally forgot measuring each ingredients precisely, so next time I will show you the recipe.
(maybe next Amanatsu season:P)

Pumpkin Doughnuts

This is the second challenge to make doughnuts. This time I used pumpkin instead of potatoes.

Perfect taste.

Do not think about the calories while eating...... :P

Baked Apple

Cinammon, raison, butter, maple syrup and a plenty of red wine.
bake 200℃ around 30-40 minutes.

Serve with vanila ice cream.

If the baked apple left, you can make bread pudding.

Soak bread into egg and milk. Add leftover apples and re-bake again.

On weekday night

My father's friend sent us Fresh bamboo from Kagoshima. Made Takenoko-rice, and Wakatake-ni which are typical Japanese Bamboo dish.

Jun made Tarako Spaghetti for us!

I made tomato salad.

Typical traditional Japanese food

During weekdays, I do not have much time to make dinner. Taro went home at around 6 o'clock,and I came home around 6:30. They get hungry so I always rush into home and make something quickly. While I got train, I compose everyday meals and image the procedure. Quite tough to manage it everyday.

Preserved Salted Mushrooms

Diced Enoki, Shitake, Elingi, Shimeji and Maitake Mushrooms. Meausure the gross weight.

Boil 20 secs for each mushroom.

Put boiled mushrooms in the preserved bottle. Add 10%salt of the gross weight. Mix together.
It can be stored in a fridge for 1 month.

Tonight, made salad using this salty mushroom. Mushrooms has enough salty so you do not need to season. Oil and Lemon juice would be fine. The white pieces are cottage cheese.

The main dish was Bongore Rosso.

Taro's rate: ★★★★★(Spaghetti)

Probably this is the first time to make Doughnuts using yeast. To more surprise, besides flour, mush potatoes into it. Amazing. (potato:flour=1:2)Very light and fluffy texture.
