Yeast Extract Recipes
Rita Said:Quick and Easy Recipes?
We Answered:Looks like you could whip up a derivation of an eggs benedict or a bubble and squeak here. let's see...maybe:
toast on the bottom cheese, a couple of vege bacon strips, then a slice of cheese, a couple of poached eggs...top with hollandaise (the recipe below) then sprinkle some chopped veg and salt and pepper to taste. Just a quick idea as I looked at your supplies.
Makes: 1 cup
I N G R E D I E N T S
2 tablespoons white-wine or tarragon vinegar or fresh lemon juice
4 tablespoons boiling water
3 large egg yolks
1/2 cup unsalted butter
1/4 teaspoon cayenne
1/2 teaspoon salt
I N S T R U C T I O N S
Melt the butter and keep it warm.
Heat the vinegar or lemon juice until just warmed. Have small saucepan with boiling water and a measuring tablespoon ready.
Place the top of a double boiler over (not in) hot water. (This means the bottom of the top of the double boiler should not make contact with the water heating in the bottom half of the double boiler.)
Place the egg yolks in the top of a double boiler and whisk until they begin to thicken. Now add 1 tablespoon of the boiling water. Continue to beat the sauce until it begins to thicken. Repeat with the remaining water, one tablespoon at a time, beating the mixture after each addition.
Now add the warmed vinegar or lemon juice. Remove the double boiler from the heat. Beat the sauce briskly with a wire whisk. Continue to beat the mixture as you slowly pour in the melted butter. Add the salt and cayenne and beat the sauce until it is thick. Serve immediately.
Let me know how it turns out for you.
Sue Said:Can you put lemon extract into a yeast sweet bread recipe without having to add any more flour?
The amount of extract is so little that it will not make a difference. If you want more flavor use lemon zest rather than extract. Heat causes extract to evaporate to some extent so if you want the lemon flavor and aroma use the zest. Depending on the recipe I would use 1 to 2 Tb of the zest or if I want a real strong lemon flavor and aroma use the zest of the whole lemon.
