Title: Everyday Cookbook (EDC) - links to reviews
Post by: judydawn on January 04, 2012, 09:01:21 am
There is no point putting page numbers on this one as there have been quite a few reprints and our page numbers may be different.  In a posting below you will see a link to the contents list of the latest 2013 EDC book.  All future review of recipes from this updated book will be found in this (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=13286.0) thread.

Visit this blog  (http://simonesthermomixessentials.files.wordpress.com/2012/11/edc-tips-and-tweaks-18-nov-12.pdf) for a very comprehensive list of tweaks and hints for recipes in all books leading up to the 2013 edition.  Those with ** are on the list but there are many more so it would pay to download this list.

The new 2013 edition of the EDC is now available and any reviews from this cookbook will be posted in a new topic here. (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=13286.0)

Judy, I do hope I haven't mucked up your work too much. I have managed to put in the word Muffins but everytime I go to hilight it I do half the list. I've tried and tried and can't get it to work. :'( :'(
Do you have any trade secrets.
Title: Re: Everyday Cookbook (EDC) - reviews & links
Post by: judydawn on January 05, 2012, 05:19:40 am
 :D :D :D :D It is very hard isn't it Cookie.  I have removed the word muffin and fixed the other links around it.  
 My secret is to put the links at the top, highlight them and make a space where it needs to go further down the page in alphabetical order then post it in there.  It is difficult because the page doesn't want to stay in view but it works, believe me ;)
I have inserted Chelsea's muffin comment so all fixed.  I don't mind the extra work Chelsea, keep on posting reviews and now that the lists are finished I will be onto them a lot quicker than I was whilst compiling the lists.  :-* :-*

Chelsea if people let us (read as Judy) know it is easier to put them in one at a time than have to do lots.

Post by: judydawn on February 22, 2012, 11:16:35 am
FeeBee, I did a google search and found some comments on Potato & Leek soup (in the soup section, not the reviews section). I have added it to the EDC list of reviews.

Hi everyone. I was wondering if anyone has made the citrus marmalade from the EDC. I made some with a kilo of the last of my limes a couple of days ago & wasn't very impressed with the results. It certainly set alright, but unusually for EDC recipes isn't sweet enough! It took ages to mandolin the limes(my old Magimix was unavailable) & I thought it wasn't worth the effort as there was too much skin in the completed marmalade. It made 4 jars & I think it will be good as added flavour in curries but too bitter to eat on toast!

 I get many limes each year so will try a marmalade next year( & still have enough to make another batch this year), but wont be using this recipe.
Any thoughts?

rice


EDC updates
rice page 16

The basket will actually hold up to 500g of uncooked white rice.
If you soak your rice in your Thermoserver whilst your main is cooking, it will reduce your cooking time. E.g. 400g of brown rice soaked in boiled water for 20 minutes will cut cooking time from 35 to 22 minutes.

Sautéing onions

EDC updates


Sautéing onions and Herbs p.16

Remove the Measuring Cup (MC) whilst sautéing onions to allow evaporation of the sharp juices.

Post by: fundj&e on December 07, 2012, 07:13:16 pm
Vegetable Stock

EDC updates

Vegetable Stock Concentrate p.17

The high quantity of salt in this recipe preserves it, but also creates the intensity. Many customers have reported that they prefer to reduce it by up to 50% and store in trays or containers in the freezer, it will not freeze solid. This may mean you need to increase the amount you use in recipes to create the same intensity.

Yoghurt
EDC updates

Yoghurt p.19

There are a numerous recipes that provide different textures and outcomes. The longer you pasteurise, the greater the denaturation of protein structure – the thicker and creamier your result will be.

Uni I have put the link on the first page of this thread so that people can go over to the blog and have a read or print the list out which I have done.  I've also put an ** alongside any on our list which are also on this blog list but it would pay to print the list out for ourselves as there are many on the list that we do not have reviews for.  This is the best list of tweaks I've seen for the EDC.

I made the Quiche Lorraine tonight. I can't believe I made a quiche including pastry in under an hour!
Tweaks:
*I threw an onion in with the bacon and chopped them together before sauteeing them together on Varoma temp for 5 minutes (maybe a little too long, it did catch on the bottom a bit, no prob tho).
*It was great for a family meal, maybe if I was having guests I might think about chopping the bacon by hand (to make it look more uniform)...then do it in the TMX anyway!
*I used light milk instead of cream and it worked well.
*I also used my new silicone baking beads on string when doing the pre bake to stop the pastry from rising (and because they were new and I needed to test them out!)
Overall a great 'starter' recipe that I'll be adapting regularly from now on :)

"Silicon baking beads on string"

Never heard of these. Are they like a necklace so you can just lift them off? My beads go everywhere, and are too hot to scoop up when you have to pop the base back in the oven to crisp

"Silicon baking beads on string"

Never heard of these. Are they like a necklace so you can just lift them off? My beads go everywhere, and are too hot to scoop up when you have to pop the base back in the oven to crisp

I'd probably buy another packet and use two strings for a large quiche, they are kind of light, but did the job well :) -soooo much easier than rice or baking beads

These sound great. I use rice but don't think it's heavy enough.

I used to use rice, apart from the potential mess, I found that sometimes the pastry would be a little bit sweaty. These beads are not as heavy as I thought they might be, but they did the job nicely. I can weigh them if you are interested.

No need to weigh jamberie. I will check the link out and probably buy a set ;)

They weigh 90g. I'm considering another string...but I'm sure they are not necessary :D

"Silicon baking beads on string"

Never heard of these. Are they like a necklace so you can just lift them off? My beads go everywhere, and are too hot to scoop up when you have to pop the base back in the oven to crisp

CP I lift up the baking paper that they are sitting on in the pie case and 'pour' them back into the glass container that I keep them in.  I don't get them spilling anywhere or have to touch them with my fingers either.  I use 2 lots of the beads for filling the case too.  :)

Where can I find reviews for the Beetroot Soup (Borsch)?  The recipe is very confusing as to whether you should add the chopped vegetables at the end or not.  I did, and the result was a very watery soup with vege bits at the bottom??   ???

Would love some help on this one :)

Here's a comment on one beetroot soup but it does mention not having success with borsch  - http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=2990.0.  Hopefully someone who has made borsch will give you some feed back  4ge.

My MIL used to make Borscht regularly. Hers was like a vegetable soup with Beetroot added. The Beetroot is put in raw, as are all the other vegetables. Blitz them on speed 4 or so to leave them chunky. She used a lot of potatoes. When it is cooked you can either purée it, or leave it chunky. She often added a small can of baked beans to it as well. Sometimes she even put sliced cabbage into it. She used chicken stock as the base.
Hope this helps. I think the actual recipe for Borscht varies from Russia to Poland to the Ukraine. MIL was from the Ukraine.

Has anyone made the Lemon (or Orange) Cake?  It seems an awful lot of mixing, and mine didn't rise much.  Tastes good though.

Yes, it's a good recipe - easily trasferred to gluten free as well.

I made the Quiche Lorraine tonight. I can't believe I made a quiche including pastry in under an hour!

Overall a great 'starter' recipe that I'll be adapting regularly from now on :)
I've just made the quiche lorraine - mainly because I went out and bought the red necklace! I failed. It was really runny and needed to cook for about twice as long.

Oh No Alexis...so disappointing! I've also found that quiches sometimes need to cook for twice as long....I don't use all the pastry, but I guess it depends on the width and depth of your quiche dish, mine is quite shallow (maybe an inch high).

For those who might be thinking about ordering the NEW EDC...I had a flick through one today. It looks very nice and as though it might last longer than the spiral bound ones but according to the consultants, there are only 4 new recipes (Aussie Meat Pies and Lamingtons were two recipes mentioned) and 4 have been removed (but I'm sorry I don't know what they were). Sorry I didn't ask what the recipes are! And I'm not sure if the recipes are exactly the same or 'tweaked' versions.

Does the new EDC have new recipes, or has it just been updated with the teaks?
Title: Re: Everyday Cookbook (EDC) - links to reviews
Post by: judydawn on June 04, 2013, 02:15:45 am
Quite a few new recipes maddy and the magnet chart for the fridge has been updated with more realistic chopping times too.

Here's  (http://www.forumthermomix.com/index.php?topic=13189.0) the index of the new book.

Thanks Judy  :-*
Mine is an absolute mess, and many pages stuck together, and lots of my scribbles with amendments!
Think I would like a nice CLEAN copy!
Shame it's not spiral bound, but wipe clean pages a bonus I guess.

I could be crazy, but I can't see a review of the Minestrone soup fromt he old EDC? Would it be on this thread anywhere, or does that mean that no one has reviewed it yet?

 I read elsewhere on the forum (I think it was in the review of the new EDC minestrone soup recipe) that there were some complaints about the old recipe.

does anyone have any tweaks they do of the recipe?! Thanks! :)

Hi, I had no idea I had to update my EDC ?? it was printed in march 2011 :( , Do I need to call my thermomix lady and get a newer one? PS Why didn't she sell me a new one :(

You don't have to update your EDC. A lot of people have just decided to as they would like the new one.

I bought the new edition of EDC which arrived the other day and I am pleased I did. My 4 year old one was a bit worn and tired.  The new one is fresh looking and. I like the new size.

My original one is trashed. I spilt water on it and the pages are all stuck together and a lot of recipes are unreadable. But I don't like the new, non bound version so while I need one - I don't want to get it!

That is strange Judy as my copy is a bound copy and the old one is a spiral bound. What  is going on?

Yes there's that about it Gert but then the pages fall off the spiral with age and it becomes very tatty.  I just put something heavy on the other page to hold it down now.  I do prefer big cookbooks.

I love spiral bound. Last time mine came off the spirals I put it back on, got some pliers and squished all the spirals together. I still haven't bought the new one even though my old one is disgusting.
