It should be a 46 oz. can of tomato juice. I have edited the recipe so that it indicates the ounces now. Hope you enjoy the recipe.

I would use the cooking time for the 4 lb. roast and then figure you will have to add a little more time to that. Our cooking time charts show that you should be roasting for approximately 22 minutes a pound. I would start by checking the temperature of the roast after the 4 lb. roast cooking time and if not done, cook for another 15 minutes and check the temperature again. Check the temperature often to be sure the roast does not get over done for your liking. Be sure to take the roast out when it gets to a temperature that is about 10 degrees below your desired temperature. To cook it to rare, we suggest that it should be a finished temperature of 140 degrees, so you would remove it from the oven when its internal temperature reaches a 130 degrees. Then allow the roast to set for 15 minutes before carving. During this time the temperature will rise 5 to 10 degrees. Note: these times are for roasting at 350 degrees F.

Posted: 12/19/2014 07:45:28 AM
You can use a medium size jar, which might range from 24 to 29 oz. in size. It may depend on the brand. If the jar is in that range it should be fine for this recipe. Hope you enjoy it!
Re:Easy Creamy Chicken Casserole
Posted: 12/15/2014 08:18:58 AM
I would just eliminate the step of adding the seasoning packet to the chicken broth and just bring the broth to a boil on its own. Layer the dry stuffing mix over the soup and chicken. Then carefully pour the hot broth over the stuffing mix and bake as indicated. I think this will work just fine and you will end up with basically the same results.
Posted: 12/01/2014 08:32:16 AM
If you are just draining by holding the pans lid on top of the pan and pouring it out the water, some of the water may get trapped. Make sure to drain it well in a strainer, tossing it several times at 1 or 2 minute intervals. You can also place a couple of paper towels in with the drained cauliflower and toss them around to help absorb some of the moisture. Another suggestion would be to try returning the cauliflower to the drained pan, uncovered, and setting on a warm burner for a few minutes. The warmth from the burner will help evaporate some of the moisture but be sure to watch it so the cauliflower does not start to burn on the bottom.

How many lemons for what recipe?
Posted: 11/21/2014 08:02:43 AM
You are right, their flavor and texture do differ. That is why many times one or the other is not specified because most people prefer one over the other, which in most cases either can be used in a recipe. If the author of the recipe feels one or the other needs to be used, they will specify it in the recipe. Is there some particular recipe that you felt one or the other needed to be used?

Re:Loaf pan size
Posted: 09/29/2014 08:33:04 AM
I am not sure which meat loaf recipe you are referring to but I am guessing it is calling for 2 lbs. of meat so you should use a 9x5 loaf pan. Most meat loaf recipes call for 2 lbs. but if it only calls for 1-1/2 lbs. of meat you could probably get by with an 8x4 loaf pan. Just be sure the top of the meat loaf is about 1/2 inch below the top edge of the pan to prevent grease from running over the edges. I always place my meat loaf pan on a cookie sheet to catch any grease that might run over the edge. It doesn't generally happen but it has occasionally so I just play it safe to prevent the grease spill in my oven.
Re:Asian Marinated Turkey Roast
Posted: 09/26/2014 11:39:59 AM
I would follow all the directions as stated except rather than placing on a grill I would cook it on the stove in a grill pan or if you do not have a grill pan any frying pan would work. Cook over medium heat for 10 minutes on one side and if nicely browned, turn and cook on the second side for 10 or 15 minutes, until nicely browned. I am not sure about the times so watch carefully and start to test for doneness after 15 minutes or so. You do not want to overcook the turkey so just watch carefully. I hope this will help you prepare this recipe without a grill. Thanks for your inquiry.

Clett, I have a couple of suggestions that might help you when making meatloaf. When placing it in the pan make sure you pack it down tightly. Be sure to cook it long enough and when removing it from the pan use a cooking spatula to loosen the sides; then slide the spatula under the meatloaf to lift it out of the pan. The recipe I use most often is at the following address: http://www.recipetips.com/recipe-cards/u--5579/meat-loaf-with-brown-sugar-topping.asp. We love meatloaf at my house also, so I make this recipe a lot and generally to not have any trouble with it. Good luck with your efforts. I hope some of these suggestions will be helpful.
Re:Gallon Regrigerator Pickles
Posted: 07/28/2014 12:16:26 PM
Yes, you can use a plastic jar. As for the garlic and dill you can use your own judgment but I would suggest slicing up two cloves of garlic to add to each layer, so 6 cloves altogether. As for dill, I would add two heads of dill per layer. A little more or less of the garlic and dill will probably not make a big difference. Good luck with your pickles. Hope they turn out good for you.

I have never made them so I am not sure but I would think you could. If the dough rises too much, punch it back down and let it rise again at room temperature before boiling in the am. If they haven't raised enough, let them set at room temperature until they have risen properly. The dough should be double in size when properly raised.

Unfortunately we do not have this information because this is a recipe submitted by someone else.

This is an inconvenient way to figure this out but you would then know for sure the serving size and have the information for the future. I apologize for not being able to give you a definite answer to your question but I hope my suggestion will be helpful to you.
Re:Turtle Cheesecake Bars
Posted: 01/20/2014 11:17:34 AM
If you cut down on the amount of cream cheese it will affect the texture and firmness of the bars. How much it affects it will depend on how much you cut down on the quantity. If you are trying to cut back on the fat and calories, I would suggest using a light version of cream cheese rather than cutting down on the amount used.

Re:Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies
Posted: 12/03/2013 07:33:54 AM
Melanie, I want to apologize for the incomplete instructions on this cookie recipe. The 8 oz. of almond bark is to be divided in half, 4 oz. to be chopped and added to the cookie dough and 4 oz. to be melted with the shortening to be drizzled over the cookies after they are baked. 1 teaspoon of shortening is melted with the almond bark for drizzling. There are not any eggs called for in this recipe. The butter that gets worked into the dry ingredients is enough to hold the dough together. I have edited the recipe so when you go to the recipe now you may have to refresh your page so that you are sure to see the corrected recipe. Again, I am sorry for the incomplete recipe. I hope you will give it a try. The cookies are great and they are nice colorful addition to your Christmas treats.

Re:pear & apple pudding
Posted: 10/28/2013 07:50:24 AM
This is where you would place the bread pudding baking dish in a larger baking dish that has water in it. The bread pudding is then baked while setting in the pan of water. This will help the pudding bake more evenly. Make sure you do not add too much water to the larger pan, which would result in the water overflowing when the bread pudding baking dish is placed in it. If the water comes up about 1 inch around the pudding baking dish it would be sufficient.

The salad should not be tossed. It is to be served as a layered lettuce salad. It only needs to be refrigerated long enough to chill it.

Re:Roasted Asparagus Quiche
Posted: 04/08/2013 08:48:47 AM
To freeze this I would definitely bake it first because I don't know how the eggs would react to freezing. I am afraid that it may cause the dish to have a funny texture. I would bake it, cool it completely and then freeze it. When ready to prepare to serve, take it from the freezer and defrost in the refrigerator. Remove it from the refrigerator about 45 to 60 minutes before reheating. Cover the top with foil and reheat at 300 degrees F. for about 15 minutes. Remove the foil and bake for another 10 minutes. To check to see if it is hot enough, stick the tip of a knife in center of the quiche and leave it there for 15 seconds. Pull the knife out and check the tip of the knife. If it is hot to the touch the quiche should be warm enough. If not, heat for a few more minutes and check again. If you feel the crust is getting too browned, lay a piece of foil over it. Good luck with the recipe, it is a delicious one.

There may be several factors that could affect how dry the cracker dough would be. Did you sift the flour? If not, there may have been too much flour added. Also, when measuring out the two types of cheese, you may have packed a little too much cheese into the measuring cup when measuring the cheese out. I would try working a little more butter into the dough and see if that will help hold the roll together better.

Re:all about rhubarb - jam without strawberry
Posted: 02/26/2013 08:29:15 AM
If you don't have strawberry jello you could use a different flavor, such as raspberry or cherry. The jello helps thicken the jam but you could leave it out if you prefer. If you leave it out you will probably want to boil it longer to thicken the jam. While boiling the jam, test it to see if it is sweet enough for your taste. If not, add a little more sugar. You may also want to add a tablespoon or two of lemon juice to brighten the jam.

I am sure there are cookbooks and sites out there for cooking-for-two that would include low-fat diets but I would not have that information available without doing some online searching. But we do have some information on our site that tells you how to scale a recipe for less or more servings and some tips that are helpful when doing so. If you go to the following address you will find this article on scaling: http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--583/recipe-advice.asp#scaling
I think you will find the information useful and you can apply it to the cookbooks you already have. Good luck.

Unfortunately, in my online search and looking through our reference material, I could not find equivalence information between powder and liquid cayenne. Most of the information on liquid cayenne had to do with using it as a dietary supplement. The only thing I could suggest is testing it by trial and error. Start out using less liquid than powder and increase the amount as needed. This is not a simple solution because it will take some effort in determining the correct amount. I am sorry that we could not be of more help.

Yes, you can but it is best if the slow cooker is at least half full for it to cook according to the recipe. If it is less than half full it may take less time for the dish to get done so for some recipes you would want to be careful that the food does not get overcooked. For most dishes it shouldn't be much of a problem but just be aware that your food will be done in a little less time.

Re:19 b. bonless rib-eye
Posted: 12/25/2012 9:55:26 PM
A 19 pound rib-eye roast is a larger than average roast. I would suggest 15 to 20 minutes per pound at 350 degrees would be a good starting point but it really depends on how well done you want it to be. It is best to determine doneness by using a meat thermometer. Use the following guidelines for the different degrees of doneness: 140 degrees for rare, 145 degrees for medium rare, 160 degrees for medium, 165 degrees for medium well, and 170 degrees for well done. Keep in mind that it is recommended that beef be cooked to a minimum of 145 degrees for safety purposes so only cooking your roast to 140 degrees (rare) is not recommended.

Re:Difference in Cookie Doughs
Posted: 12/24/2012 09:07:49 AM
Spritz cookie dough needs to be soft enough to go through the cookie press properly but firm enough to hold its shape once it comes out of the press. If it doesn't hold its shape, you may have to add some flour to stiffen it up. Another factor that may make a difference when making spritz cookies is the room temperature of your kitchen at the time. If it is too warm it can cause the dough to be too soft. Getting the dough to the proper stiffness is a key factor to making spritz cookies and I think experience in making is a key factor. Good luck with your efforts. Just remember it will be well worth the effort when you are eating those delicious cookies!
Re:black forest ham
Posted: 12/24/2012 08:49:14 AM
I would advise against adding a glaze to your black forest ham because it has been processed to give it a unique flavor already. As far as how long to cook it will depend on the type of Black Forest Ham that it is. If it is a raw dry cured ham it is best to just let it set at room temperature for 15 to 20 minutes before serving. It is generally served with cheese and crackers. If it is a brine cured Black Forest Ham that is fully cooked, you just need to cook it long enough to bring it up to 140 degrees F. If you go to http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--748/ham-products.asp and http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--1312/ham-cooking-times.asp on our site you will find information on Black Forest Ham and cooking times and temperatures for different types of ham. Also, check your ham because sometimes its label will contain cooking instructions and also it will indicate if it is already fully cooked.

Posted: 12/13/2012 11:55:39 AM
Yes, you should be able to freeze the ham loaf. I would suggest not applying any glaze that might be called for and wait to add that just before you are going to bake it. I would freeze it before baking it but you could bake it first if you preferred. If you bake it before freezing, when you are ready to serve it, thaw it completely and slice into pieces before warming it. Warm one or two slices at a time in the microwave rather than warming the whole loaf in the oven. If you warm it in the oven as a whole loaf, it may dry out too much before it gets warmed all the way through.

Baker's ammonia was used as a leavening agent similar to baking soda and baking powder. I did find a source online for it. If you paste this address into your browser, http://www.kingarthurflour.com/shop/items/bakers-ammonia-ammonium-carbonate-27-oz?utm_source=frooglecom&utm_medium=cse&utm_campaign=shopping&gclid=COu7yKKziLQCFcxAMgod6h0AvA , you should go right to the product. You can also substitute it with baking powder and baking soda. Substitute as follows: 1 teaspoon Baker's Ammonia = 1 teaspoon Baking Powder plus 1 teaspoon Baking Soda. This should produce a very similar product but it may not be as light or have as crisp a texture. Good luck with the recipe!
Re:Pretzels with melted kisses

It is the cocoa butter coming to the surface. This can happen when chocolate is cooled too quickly or melted at too high a temperature. Sometimes the humidity can also affect it. I would make sure to let them cool at room temperature out of any cool draft. This is something that happens when conditions are not right but is also hard to control. The best part is that it doesn't affect the taste and you can still enjoy the Pretzels with Melted Kisses even though they don't look as attractive as you would like.

Make sure that the turkey reaches a temperature of 165 degrees F in the breast and 175 degrees in the thigh. Allow it to set for 15 minutes before carving and the temp should rise to the safe temperature of 170 and 180 degrees suggested for turkey. Good luck and hope you enjoy the recipe.
Re:turkey in high altitudes

You should be able to generally use the same time as you normally would. A 15 lb. turkey would take approximately 3 hours if it is unstuffed. But the best way to achieve proper doneness is to check the turkey with a thermometer. The breast should be 170 degrees F. and the thigh should be 180 degrees F. Cooking times will vary according to conditions. If you go to the following addresses on this site you will see further information: http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--910/turkey-cooking-times.asp or http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--412/roasting-turkey.asp .

Yes, you should be able to use the mini loaf pans. I would start out baking them for the same amount of time, 25 to 30 minutes. Test for doneness by poking the center with a toothpick. If it doesn't come out clean, bake for another 5 minutes and test again. If more time is needed, maybe only try an additional 3 minutes. The mini loaves shouldn't take a lot longer than the muffins. Make sure to spread the pans out evenly throughout the oven so the heat can circulate evenly around them. Good luck and enjoy!

Re:Question on recipes: Slow Cooker Barbecued Chicken Drummies (3252)

Drummies (drummettes) are the part of a chicken wing that looks like a small drumstick. The wing also has a wingette and wing tip. The wing tip is generally discarded because it has very little edible parts. If you purchase chicken wings in the frozen food section of the supermarket you are probably going to end up with wingettes and drummettes. If the bag indicates chicken drummies or drummettes, you will get just that part of the chicken wing. For most recipes that call for chicken drummies, both the wingettes and drummettes could be used if desired.

Posted: 08/06/2012 08:21:53 AM
It sounds like you did everything right when smoking the roast. When you checked the internal temperature, are you sure the probe got down into the center of the roast? Were there red juices or was the meat just red. If the meat was just pink in color that is the color some of the meat will turn when smoked. If it was red juices I would say it did not cook properly all the way through. You should not re-smoke or re-cook pork. If you feel the outer layer of the roast is done you could cut that away from the roast to use it, but when reheating it you have to make sure it reaches at least a temperature of 140 degrees before serving it. The inside section that still had the red juices and was tough should be discarded, not cooked again.

I did some searching for information on energy bars made with lentils. I could not find anything indicating a way to make them so that they could be stored at room temperature for any length of time. It sounds like they can be stored in the refrigerator anywhere from 3 to 5 days, otherwise they should be frozen. I would suggest wrapping them individually and storing in the freezer for extended storage time. Remove them as needed.

Correct. Just because it is smoked doesn't mean it is cooked. Go to http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--741/types-of-ham.asp and you can see more information on smoked ham and other different types of ham and how they are processed.

It would depend on how you are preparing these different foods and whether you are filling the plates for them or letting them take their own. If you dish up the plates it is easier to control the portions. If you go to this page on our site, http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--1084/how-much-to-buy.asp#meat, it will provide you with information on how to determine the amount of the different meats. It will also make a difference in whether everyone is served all three meats or if they have a choice of one. As for the potatoes, a good rule to follow is 1 medium potato per person. If you go to this chart on our site, http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--654/ingredients-n-to-r.asp, you will see potatoes listed and it gives you several potato equivalents that may be useful in determining the amount of potatoes needed. As for the pumpkin, I am not sure how you are planning on serving that so I am not sure what to tell you on that. Will it be prepared as a vegetable? In researching hangi cooking, it sounds like a very interesting method for cooking foods that provides some delicious foods. I am not familiar with this cooking process but I hope the information I have provided for the meats and potatoes will still be helpful. Good luck.

I think you better plan on making dessert for the whole neighborhood. I would not refreeze the rhubarb. I think its quality would greatly suffer. I great way to freeze rhubarb in bunches is to just spread the rhubarb out on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer. Once frozen, take out and put into a sealable bag or container; then place back in the freezer immediately. This way the rhubarb remains as loose individual pieces and allows you to remove only the amount you need at the time and place the rest back in the freezer for later use. Go to http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--1375/how-to-freeze-rhubarb.asp to see our information on How to Freeze Rhubarb. This method is shown there along with several others.

Re:Asparagus and cheese bread pudding

I don't see why you couldn't. As for the amount to use? I can't tell you for sure but I would buy an average size bunch of broccoli and clean the whole thing. Then cook it to crisp tender as instructed to do with the asparagus. I would add enough broccoli to cover the bread evenly but not so that it is a solid layer. I think you can add whatever you felt comfortable with and then finish the dish as indicated. It sounds like it would be good. I would be interested in knowing what you and your husband thought of this dish made with broccoli. Good luck.

I am sure there are recipes that call for cooking spring mix but I don't know of any way of cooking it to preserve it. Any recipes I found that cook the spring mix intend for the dish to be eaten right away. To keep the spring mix fresh for as long as possible, first rinse it in cold water and then drain it thoroughly. Dry the mix as much as possible using a salad spinner or place it is a large plastic bag and add some paper towels. Shake the mix around in the bag with the paper towels so the towels will soak up as much moisture as possible. Store spring mix in a container or plastic sealable bag lined on the top and bottom with paper towels. The paper towels will absorb any excess moisture. Store it in the crisper drawer of the refrigerator. That is the best advice I can give you other than maybe you should share some of the spring mix with friends or family. Good luck.

Re:Sweet Potato Oven Baked Fries
Posted: 02/23/2012 10:37:11 AM
One important factor is that they should be baked in a single layer that is not overcrowded. Crowding prevents the heat from getting to the entire surface of the sweet potato fries. Otherwise, I would just try increasing the cooking time. Bake them for 15 minutes instead of just 10 before turning them and then bake them for 25 more minutes. Check for crispiness and if they are still not crisp enough, continue to bake at 5 minute intervals until they are to the desired crispiness. To get nice crispy potatoes with any recipe it seems like it takes additional time, even with the frozen fries you buy in the store. But it is well worth the extra time!
Posted: 02/22/2012 08:10:04 AM
In researching this I found several suggestions. Try one of the following: shrimp paste, brined cured olives (Kalamata) Worcestershire sauce, or Japanese hondashi powder (instant dashi). About the only way to know which will work best for you is to test them in a recipe and see which you prefer. It seems that it was a matter of personal preference. Good luck.

Then click on "Update" and the recipe will automatically adjust the quantity of the ingredients for 2-1/2 lbs of hamburger. Just be aware that any alternative amounts described in the ingredient description do not get adjusted so you would have to adjust those manually. Also, you may have to increase the length of cooking time, depending on the size of loaves you make. Good luck, it looks like a tasty meat loaf.

Re:southern fried chicken

From the research I did on southern dry rice, it is my understanding that it is referring to dry loose rice. It is suggested to use long or extra long grain rice to get these results. It is generally just plain rice cooked according to your own preference. People will use various flavorings when cooking the rice, such as salt, pepper, garlic, onion, and chicken broth. They are referring to non-sticky type rice when referring to southern dry rice, which is achieved by cooking long grain rice properly.

Re:Cooking Rib Eye Roasts
Posted: 12/15/2011 12:18:01 AM
If you are cooking the roasts in the same pan, keep them separated as much as possible so the heat can circulate around them. Base cooking time on the 7 lb. roast, allowing an extra 30 minutes of cooking time in case it is needed. Start checking for doneness 15 minutes before the end of the cooking time (without the 30 extra minutes - this extra time is only used if needed). See http://www.recipetips.com/kitchen-tips/t--372/roasting-beef.asp for information on what temperatures to cook your roast to for your desired doneness. If it is not at the proper temperature, continue to cook and check every 10 minutes until it is at desired doneness.

Re:bomeless turkey roasts
Posted: 11/26/2011 08:48:26 AM
The cooking time should be close to same as on the package as long as you are cooking them separated from each other so that heat from the oven can circulate around each of them. Either cook them in separate roasting pans or in one large enough to keep them separated. You may want to allow an extra 15 minutes but be sure to check for doneness a little before the suggested time is up and remember that when you remove it from the oven you should allow it to stand for 15 minutes before carving. The temperature will rise about 5 degrees during this standing time. Good luck.
Re:turkey breast roasting time
Posted: 11/23/2011 3:01:10 PM
If you place both turkey breasts in the same bag try to keep the separated as much as possible so the heat can circulate all around both of them. I think if you add 15 to 30 minutes to the cooking time that it should be sufficient. It may be best to roast them in smaller separate bags, each in their own roasting pan if possible. After 3 hours, test for doneness. The internal temperature of the turkey breast should be 170 degrees. If not continue to cook at 15 minutes intervals and then check for doneness again.

Re:Reheating a fresh ham
Posted: 11/17/2011 08:25:55 AM
Be sure that you cook the fresh ham to 160 degrees F. to ensure proper doneness. When you reheat the ham the next day make sure it is heated to 140 degrees F. This is the temperature that all foods should be reheated to for ensured safety. You can remove it from the oven when it reaches 135 degrees and allow it to stand for 10 to 15 minutes and its temperature will increase another 5 degrees, leaving you with a nice juicy ham to serve.

Re:Let's get the knives out.....And the sharpeners.....
Posted: 03/31/2011 07:48:53 AM
For a knife of that quality I would not risk trying to sharpen it with an electric sharpener when it has that much damage. If it was just dull, the electric sharpener would work fine. If you want to salvage this knife I would have it sharpened professionally. It would be worth it to have a professional sharpen it right and then after that the edge could be maintained with a good quality electric sharpener, such as the Chefs Choice electric sharpener. Good luck and I hope you get a lot of good use out of your knife.
