Crockpot Meatloaf with Cabbage Recipe
Makes 4 Servings

1 pound extra lean ground beef
2 cups shredded cabbage
1 medium green bell pepper, finely chopped
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon celery seed
1 tablespoon dried minced onion
1 egg, beaten

First, make foil "handles." Fold a 30-inch long piece of foil in half lengthwise. Place in bottom of a slow cooker with both ends hanging over top edge of cooker. The foil strip will make it much easier to remove the meatloaf when it's done. Put a piece of
crumpled foil in the bottom to keep the meatloaf out of the fat. Combine all ingredients; working with hands until blended. Shape into round loaf. Place meat loaf on foil (or a rack) in 3-1/2- to 5-quart slow cooker. Cover, and cook on high for 4 to 6 hours.

How to Make Homemade Potato ChipsHow to Make Homemade Potato Chips

Potato Chips
We knew that we could make great homemade potato chips in the deep fryer; we wanted to know if we could make equally good potato chips in the oven. So we started with the oven potato chips. We cut russets into thin slices, about an eighth inch thick and then soaked them in cold water. We spread aluminum foil on a baking sheet and greased the foil well. After the slices had soaked for twenty minutes, we spread the potato slices across the foil, brushed them with vegetable oil, and baked them at 425 until they were just starting to turn golden. We put them on racks to cool and sprinkled them with salt.

These chips were good but not as crispy as they should be. Back to the drawing board. We thought maybe a slower bake would draw more moisture from them and make them crispy. We lowered the temperature again and again. The best chips came at 325 degrees, slow baking for 20 minutes.

We then turned to deep fried potato chips.

We heated the oil in our deep fryer to 360 degrees. We fried them in small quantities until they started to turn a golden color, drained them on paper towels and then moved them to a rack to cool completely. Sprinkled with a little salt, they were delightful—much better than potato chips out of a bag.

And yes, the fried potato chips were much better than the baked chips.

Here's what you do:
Pick good quality russet potatoes. Wash them and cut out any bad spots.

Cut them into 1/8-inch thick slices. You can do so with a knife; it’s a lot easier to get uniform slices that will cook uniformly with a mandolin or with the attachment to your mixer.

Heat the oil to 350 to 375 degrees. You can do so, on the stovetop or with a thermostatically controlled deep fryer. If you are frying on the stovetop, use a deep pan and a candy thermometer, and watch your work. If your oil becomes too hot, it can burst into flames.

Cook a small amount of potato chips at a time. If you cook too many, the potatoes will drop the temperature of the oil too far. Oil that is not hot enough will make your potato chips soggy.

Cook the potato chips until they are a light, golden color and begin to float.

Remove the chips to a paper towel to absorb grease. Sprinkle with salt and your favorite seasoning.

Strawberries and Cream Scones

1/2 cup strawberries (cut into 1/4 inch pieces)
2 cups cake flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 cup sugar
2 teaspoons salt
4 Tbls. unsalted butter
1 Tbls. orange zest
1 cup heavy cream

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a large bowl. Cut butter into small cubes and blend with a pastry blender until it resembles oatmeal (or small peas, if you don't like oatmeal). Add the orange zest and strawberries. Then slowly and gradually add the cream while mixing with a fork.

As soon as the flour starts to come together into a dough, remove from the bowl and form into a ball. Place on a lightly floured surface and knead gently four or five times. Then shape with your hands (or a rolling pin) into an 8 x 10" rectangle. Cut the rectangle lengthwise into two 4 x 10" rectangles. Cut each of those into 6 or 7 triangles and place on an un-greased baking sheet.

Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden brown. Serve warm plain or with softened butter, jam, creme fraiche, etc.

This is for Nancee, who in the 2/6 newsletter was trying to replicate a soup recipe she recently had. I believe the seeds in the soup were probably caraway seeds. I am sure you could use leftover pork roast in place of the knockwurst or bratwurst in this recipe. You may need to adjust the brown sugar and garlic to match what you had at the restaurant.

4 to 6 cloves garlic
4 cups stock or water
1 - 2 teaspoons brown sugar

2 Tablespoons butter or olive oil
3 tablespoon cider vinegar

Stir in remaining ingredients and bring to boil. Cover pot and reduce heat to a simmer until vegetables are tender, about 60 minutes. Serves 8 - 10. You can puree part or all of the soup in a blender, if you wish.
