Glad to hear that, Allen.  Have fun camping and looking forward to more interesting posts on your return.  Enjoy reading all of the worldwide posts but particularly interesting to me reading about someone using the Thermomix in the USA.

Hi again Cyberider. MEP also lives in the US now.
May all dairy items in your fridge be of questionable vintage.

Yes I do Cookie, but I still call Australia home. I'm desperate to return but hubby does not share my desire/need.

Quick Puff Pastry and Strawberry Jam

I been playing with my new TM5, made the quick puff pastry, the TM5 did a great job making the dough but the pastry was plain no flavor to them, it was just butter and GP flour so I thought it would had a buttery taste to them.

Strawberry jam, this is something I love and always wanted to make at home. I use the basic cookbook recipe, but substitute the lemon juice with 3 Tbs of ball realfruit classic pectin and add about 1 Tbs of butter. I cook the jam at 220f for 28mins. After refrigerator overnight the jam has setup, it is not as firm as store bought jam but not bad for my first attempt in making jam.

Next time I will reduce the chop time to have a more chunky jam. (Strawberry preserve) and cook it for couple more minutes and see how that works. Both my DW and I enjoy it.

Looks good I will try the recipe next time, question it says to use Varoma that is the highest setting steam right, I read in the book that strawberry jam uses a lower setting around 220f also it's using speed 1 no blending first. Is this the way you are cooking it?

Thanks Allen

Allen:  Sure enjoying seeing all the things you are doing with your Thermomix.  If you keep this up, I may have to get one too!

Cookie:  Hello again too!  Been away for a few years and glad to be back.

MEP:  I've been listening to Radio Australia on shortwave for over 50 years.  Maybe you could relieve some of your homesickness if you listened too!

Thanks for reading, so far the Thermomix has been a nice add on in my kitchen I been using it daily, and keep finding new uses for it. Last night I cook my DW her favorite grill steak, lobster tail and bake potato, I did the tails in the TM5, season them first then drop them in the pot steam basket, they came out great. I have been enjoying my TM5 since I got it and have not stop playing with it.

Allen I only use Varoma for the last few minutes as it says. I don't blend it first as I like bits of strawberry in it.

I am missing something here, what I am reading is "1  Place all ingredients into Thermo bowl and cook 25-35 min/Varoma/speed"
Varoma is the only temperature I am seeing. ???
