Flavored Sparkling Water – Hops

I got a bunch of flavoring to make carbonated flavored water. In the process of researching all-in-one electric brewing systems, I happened across a recipe to make a *hop* sparkling water!

Boil water for 10 minutes to sterilize. Chill to 170 degrees. Add a bit of lemon or lime juice to drop PH to 4.6. Add ~2 grams of hops per gallon of water and let stand 20 minutes to make a hop tea. Filter out hops. Keg hop tea and carbonate. Voila, hop soda.

Grilled Corn

Turns out you can cook corn directly on the grill. When we bought our grill eight or nine years ago, I found a recipe has you peel back the husk, remove the silk, re-wrap the corn in the husk, and soak it all in saltwater for an hour. That is a lot of lead time, and we wrapped up our yard work at 9PM this evening … so an extra hour and a half or so to get the corn ready wasn’t going to happen.

But if you shuck the corn, baste it with a little olive oil, and toss it on the grill … turn the ears every 3-4 minutes to avoid scorching … it is delicious. Total cook time was somewhere between 15 and 20 minutes over medium-high flame. The grill itself was open a lot (every 3 or 4 minutes to turn it, plus checking on the burgers).

Oven Roasted Mushrooms

minutes

Ingredients

  • Mushrooms

  • Olive oil

  • Salt / pepper

Method

  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F
  • While oven heats, clean mushrooms and slice
  • Toss mushrooms with olive oil (about a tablespoon per pound of mushroom) and a light sprinkling of salt and pepper
  • Change to convection at 400 degrees. Roast mushrooms for 10-15 minutes, stir and flip, and roast for another 10-15 minutes.
  • Season to taste with salt and pepper

Notes

  • Pan roasted mushrooms take a long time — there’s only so much space in a pan, and raw mushrooms are much larger than their cooked counterparts. Scott loves strogonoff, but it takes me HOURS to make it simply because two pounds of mushrooms take HOURS to cook. Using two large roasting pans, I was able to roast three pounds of mushrooms in under an hour (including washing, cutting, and cooking). By making the sauce and egg noodles while the mushrooms roast, I had strogonoff ready in about an hour (and that’s because I let the mushrooms simmer in the sauce for about fifteen minutes to absorb flavours).
