Follow Me on Pinterest

Taco Seasoning:

1/2 cup chili powder
1/4 cup onion powder
1/8 cup ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon sea salt
Put ingredients into a jar and shake.

Dry Onion Soup Mix:
2/3 cup dried, minced onion
3 teaspoons parsley flakes
2 teaspoons onion powder
2 teaspoons turmeric
1 teaspoon celery salt
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
Mix all ingredients in a jar, then give the jar a good shake. I’d recommend shaking the jar to mix the ingredients well before each use.
Use 4 tablespoons in a recipe in place of 1 packet of onion soup mix. Store this in a dry, cool place.

Ranch:
5 tablespoons dried minced onions
7 teaspoons parsley flakes
4 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
Mix together and store in an air tight container.
For dressing: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup buttermilk or sour cream.
For dip: Mix 2 tablespoons dry mix with 2 cups sour cream.
Mix up a few hours before serving, so the flavors all blend.

Facts on Oxygen Absorbers and How They Work - Country Cooking Recipes

Follow Me on Pinterest


What are Oxygen Absorbers and how do they work?
Oxygen absorbers use a base metal (iron) and a basic chemical reaction (oxidation) to remove and sequester oxygen inside the little packet.  If you open a packet up you will see a dark gray or black substance, which is just powdered iron.  As a packet is used up, the material inside the packet will become a little hard and crunchy, and will turn a reddish brown.
How Many Oxygen Absorbers Should I use?
A general rule of thumb is to use 300-500cc of oxygen absorber per gallon of food you are storing.
A little chart on how that works out:
1 Quart Bag - 100cc oxygen absorber
1 Gallon Bag - 1-2 300cc oxygen absorbers
2 Gallon Bag - 2-500cc oxygen absorbers or 1-1000cc oxygen absorber
5 Gallon Bag - 1-2 2000cc oxygen absorbers or 2-3 1000cc oxygen absorbers

Spicy KFC Cloned Chicken


The ingredients of Spicy Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe




Gather all these ingredients needed in making your own spice Kentucky fried chicken and set on a clear table for a clutter free working space:
For the brine
2 tsp Tabasco sauce
2 tsp Cajun seasoning
2 tsp chicken bouillon (powder)
2 tsp MSG (optional)
2 tsp cayenne pepper (ground)
2 tsp garlic powder
2 tsp onion powder
1 tsp seasoned salt
1 tsp white pepper
1 qt water
For the breading
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Accent
1 tsp garlic powder
2 ½ cups all purpose flour
Kosher salt (to taste)
As you have noticed, there are two sets of ingredients listed. It would be wise to separate each set to avoid any confusion before putting them all together. Make sure that these ingredients are already set in individual bowls for an easier time with the preparation. Mise en Place or to put things in place is what we call this step. It makes everything easier with every ingredient ready for the cooking process.
Preparing and cooking Spicy Kentucky Fried Chicken Recipe
The first thing to be done is preparing the brine from where the chicken will be marinated. What you need to do is to mix all the ingredients needed for the brine in a container that comes with a lid and can be stored air tight. Make sure that it is deep enough to give a little height to the mixture high enough to cover all the pieces of chicken. Place the cut chicken pieces in the brine and store in your refrigerator for 24 hours. This will allow the brine to get as much exposure to the chicken making it more flavourful.
Before taking out the brine and chicken from the fridge, prepare the flour by mixing all the ingredients that’s needed. Mix well every ingredient so that to have a more consistent spread of flavour in the flour.
Drain the chicken from the brine and don’t pat it dry. The liquid around it will help the flour bind to the chicken’s outer layer. Drench the chicken to the flour covering every surface, then shakes off any excess. Set aside in a plate and place inside the refrigerator for a couple of minutes or a good half an hour.
Cook in a deep fryer of about 330°F until the chicken is fully cooked. Drain off excess oil and serve for everyone to eat.
