When making cakes, a little soya flour helps to emulsify the fat, and when making eco friendly catering dunkeld celebration cakes, replace egg whites with agar agar dissolved in water for royal icing. Boiling water will remove any sulphur dioxide from dried fruit. Fruit with a glossy appearance has most likely been treated with liquid paraffin but currants and muscatels are not normally so treated. A little salt added to the water when cooking eco friendly catering dunkeld pasta or rice can make the water boil more vigorously and help to stop the food sticking. Do not, however, add salt while cooking beans as they will take longer to soften if you do. Salt can, of course, always be omitted for persons on a low-salt or salt-free diet. For eco friendly catering dunkeld beans an overnight soak may be sufficient, but to ensure giving enough time for this, allow 24 hours. Split peas and lentils need not be soaked. For eco friendly catering dunkeld soups, stews and casseroles, just wash and add to the other ingredients to cook. If to be cooked alone, allow four ounces of lentils to about one pint of water, although some take a little more. Simmer for 20 minutes or until tender and water is all absorbed. Here again the time will vary a little; it is helpful therefore if these high protein foods are prepared in advance of the rest of the meal. Do not leave the lentils unattended for long during eco friendly catering dunkeld cooking though, as they may froth up and over. Stir frequently to avoid sticking; a little oil in the water will minimize this.

When using dried fruit in eco friendly catering dunkeld recipes, sun-maid or similar are recommended, because they are not treated with mineral oil and are naturally sun-dried. If any dried fruit appears unusually shiny, the oil coating can be removed by washing in warm water, when it will be seen to float to the surface. The dried fruits: dates, prunes, raisins, etc., are a good source of immediate energy and do not have the lowering after effects of refined cane sugar. Vitamin C occurs naturally in many fruits and green vegetables, also potatoes, especially new potatoes. It can also be produced synthetically from vegetable or mineral sources.

A little cider vinegar added to the washing water will help remove pesticides from commercially grown vegetables. Although frying is not the best eco friendly catering dunkeld way to prepare food, we are going to use this method occasionally unless it is banned for health reasons, and a few suggestions on frying may be useful. Always use eco friendly catering dunkeld oil. Deep frying is best whenever possible; for this use a heavy pan and fill only one third with oil. Except for potatoes, coat the food in batter first to retain nutrients. Have oil at the correct temperature, which is reached when a chip, when placed gently in the pan, rises almost immediately. Do not wait for the oil to smoke. Lower the heat before lowering the food. Well blot eco friendly catering dunkeld chips to dry and put no more than will cover the bottom of the basket at one time. If you put more food than this in, it will lower the temperature too suddenly. Fry for approximately six minutes and then raise the heat for a few minutes for a crisp, brown finish. For shallow frying, for pancakes and fritters, use very little oil in a heavy pan on medium heat. This will be ready for frying in just one minute, and do not raise the eco friendly catering dunkeld heat.
