Meanwhile, wish you could show support to Hong Kong by clicking this twitter link to spread the news! https://twitter.com/hongkongfp

As you can see, we’re gonna share the experience in making candied orange peel, it’s dry and covered with sugar.

Normally, chocolate will be covered on the candied orange peel. Unfortunately, we haven’t bought any chocolate, not even non temper one.

This is ours’ first time making orange peel without an oven, we dry the orange peels with the microwave. It’s quite a challenging experience,  we even burnt the peel for the first time.

So, why were making orange peel with the microwave is challenging?

Firstly, we don’t know the exact temperature in the microwave. If it’s too high, it burnt the peels.

Secondly, the microwave will roast the peels instead of drying them. The surface might caramelize and affect the colour.

Last but not least, the time of drying the orange peels. We really don’t even know the exact time for the drying process. If we’re using an oven, we can set the temperature as low as possible and leave them dry overnight.

How can we overcome all of the problems then?

All we have to do is keep trying until we get the best result. After burning a lot of time, we know the time and how to set the power of the microwave.

So, if you’re interested by the recipe, let’s get started!

Orange: 1 pc

Sugar: 100g

Water: 60g

Salt: 10g

First of all, we cut the orange peel with a knife and slice them into julienne. Remember we only want the orange peels, other stuff will make the peels sour in taste.

Secondly, we boil the water and salt to make a bath for the orange peels in order to get rid of the bitter taste.

Good Eats

Thirdly, we blanch the peels until the water become yellowish.

Good Eats

Then, we strain the peels and prepare the syrup.

Meanwhile, we put the orange peel into the sauce pan and start the stove to medium heat and let them boil for at least half an hour.

Good Eats

When you see the orange peels become little bit transparent, strain them and leave aside.

Here comes the fun part, set the microwave power to low and microwave the orange  peels for 10 seconds intervals.

You should microwave the peels until they’re a little bit dry. Dump them in the sugar and coat them with sweets.

Here you go, the Good Eats Candied Orange Peels!

Introduction

Today, we’re gonna share a Good Eats recipe you can have at home with only 3 ingredients.

Pate de fruits is a jelly traditionally made with pectin and puree. Normally, the pectin is boiled with the puree and sugar to about 107 degree c to activate.

In this recipe, we’re using gelatin instead of pectin. It’s quite easy to make.

In fact, we were trying to make gummy but we made this jelly candy accidentally but we kind of like it and want to share with you.

Let’s see some of the failed one here. The amount of gelatin is not enough and failed to form in solid.

Good Eats Pate De Fruits Recipe

raspberry puree: 200g

sugar: 25g

lemon juice: 6g

gelatin: 100g

First of all, we have to align the baking paper on the tray. You should always ready all of the stuff before making a move in cooking.

Then, we measure the puree and sugar in the sauce pan. If we’re using pectin, the pectin should combine with the sugar or they’ll form lumps.

Furthermore, we measure the gelatin by soaking them into cold water bath. The cold water bath activate the gelatin and prevent it from melting.

Good Eats

Moreover, we turn on the stove to medium heat to melt the sugar and puree.

After the puree and sugar are melted, we add in the lemon juice to intensify the flavor.

Party Foods Toffee Recipe

Toffee Recipe

Hello guys, we’re here again to share another lovely recipe with you, it’s the Party Foods!

Have you ever tasted Toffee candy before? There’re 2 major kinds of texture, chewy and hard. Which one do you prefer?

We prefer things that’s mild, not too soft or not too hard. Do you know toffee is a product made from caramel? It’s a soft caramel. Everyone can make caramel at home, it’s easy.We would like to share an experience with you, an experience that I had when i was a little kid.

Story time

One day, I received a caramel candy from my granny, I didn’t ask and just eat it straight away, it’s so soft and sticky, i almost lost my tooth because the gooey caramel sticks to my tooth. That was miserable.

I remember I had to drink a lot of water to get rid of those sticky caramel, I even started to fear of having candies after that night. I’ll never forget that caramel almost killed me that day.

Even now, I scared of these caramel toffee candies. But, we have to conquer our own fears or we’ll be eaten by the fear itself.

Conquer My Fear

We started to check and find recipe that’s not gooey as a slime or hard as a rock. We should never create a nightmare to our audience.That’s why we started finding the recipes in youtube, pinterest and even google the concept of caramel.

In fact, recipe doesn’t affect much in making products, every recipe is similar, just sugar, butter and cream. The methods and consistency is far more important in making any pastry or candy related products.

For example, if we’re making puff, the majority of people know that we have to use butter, liquid and cake flour to form a dough. It’s not about the recipe, it’s all focused on the procedure.

If we provide a Michelin star recipe to all of you but we don’t list out the procedure, you might not know how to do the recipe. That’s why we have to focus on the methods rather than the recipe.

So cut the crap. Let’s get started!

Party Foods Toffee Recipe

Cream: 80g

sugar: 250g

butter: 80g

salt: 2g

First of all, we have to align the baking paper on the tray and set aside. That really helps in our Party Foods.

Then, we weight out the sugar in a saucepan.

On the other hand, we boil the cream first. The concept of boiling the cream is to prevent crystallization of the sugar as we’re gonna pour the hot cream into the boiling sugar.

If we pour the cold cream into the hot syrup, it will cool down the sugar and crystallized. Moreover, the liquid will splash and hurt anyone around you.

Toffee Recipe

Meanwhile, we get our salt and butter ready in two separated bowls.

Toffee Recipe

When everything’s ready, let’s make our caramel. Cook the sugar in medium heat if you’re using a stove. If not, use high heat with your electric one.

It’s because that has a big different in the temperature between the electric one and the flame one.

Party Foods

We have to melt all of the sugar and add the hot cream bit by bit. No need to rush, just little by little.

If you pour in too fast, you’ll form large lumps in the mixture. We also change to our whisk after we started pouring the cream, that also prevent forming lumps.

After that, we put our butter into the caramel to emulsify the fats and the sugar together.

Last but not least, we pour the hot mixture on the baking tray to cool down for at least 4 hours.

After 4 hours, we cut our toffee into small pieces to serve.
