Top 6 Benefits of Pressure Cooking

Top 6 Benefits of Pressure Cooking

Pressure cookers have been around for a long time, but the thought of using one still does not appeal to some. This reluctance may be due to childhood memories of a screeching pressure cooker followed by an explosion that sent the evening's dinner splattering all over the ceiling in the kitchen.

Having a pressure cooker as a part of your food preparation equipment offers several advantages. Here are the six top benefits of pressure cooking:

1. Foods retain most of their nutrients and are tastier
Eating foods that are pressure cooked offers more nutritional boost than those cooked for longer periods using traditional cookware. The longer foods are cooked, the more nutrients are destroyed.

2. Saves energy
Pressure cooking is far more efficient than using multiple pots on separate burners, and can result in significant energy savings. This is because pressure cookers lend themselves to one-pot cooking recipes.

3. Saves time in preparing meals
Cooking time is greatly reduced as foods cook up to 70% faster when a pressure cooker is used, making it a handy tool to quickly get the meal on the table.

4. The kitchen is cooler
With summers getting warmer, as evidenced by the recent record heat waves across much of the country, reducing the heat generated by cooking is key to a cool kitchen.

5. Less cleaning is required
Cooking with regular stovetop pots tends to leave cooking residues on the stove top and control panel as well on adjacent surfaces such as walls and counters. Steam and oils escape from open cookware to settle on these surfaces, which usually requires some cleanup after the meal is cooked.

6. Pressure cookers can also be used to preserve food
Pressure cookers, of course, are also designed for canning foods to be stored for future use. This is why the larger models are often referred to as ‘canners’. Pressure canners usually develop up to 15psi, the high-pressure needed to cook and can foods, including meats and fish.

It is time to get past the mystery and hesitation in using pressure cookers. Not only are the modern versions of this cooking technology safer and much less annoying then the older cookers, but the benefits they offer are also too good to pass up.

8 Must Have Chinese New Year Recipes for a Lucky Year 2022

8 Must Have Chinese New Year Recipes for a Lucky Year 2022

Looking for recipe inspiration this Chinese New Year? Chinese New Year, or the Lunar New Year officially starts on Febuary 1, 2022 and it marks the transition between the Chinese Zodiac signs.
Now we're headed into 2022, the Year of the Tiger. ​Festivities begin on Feb 1st and run through Feb 15th, 2022 when the Lantern Festival starts, and traditionally includes getting together with family and kicking things off with a big meal on Chinese New Year Eve. 
 
What to eat for Chinese New Year - Lucky Foods
To help celebrate, it's common see the gifting of lucky Red Envelopes and to eat foods symbolic of the Lunar New Year. These dishes are served to give blessings and are auspicious as to provide prosperity, luck and happiness in the coming new year.

1. Chinese New Year Cake (Sweet Rice Cake)
A must have! Niangao is a very traditional sweet dessert made from sticky rice, the name of this cake (年糕 Niángāo) translates to mean "higher year" symbolizing increasing property. Steamed, then served as is, or lightly pan fried, this dish tastes like warm sweet mochi. Steam your own niangao at home with 3 simple ingrediets and this recipe.

2. Pork & Leek Potstickers
Potstickers or dumplings are considered lucky for wealth as they are shaped similar to gold sycees. You can think of these as representing pockets of money, so it's good to have lots of potstickers during Chinese New Year.

3. Traditional Whole Steamed Fish
Symbolic for a good year from start to finish, it's important to serve the fish whole (the fish head to tail which symbolizes the start of the year to end of the year). This fish recipe also makes for an impressive table presentation but is surprisingly simple and easy to cook with a short steaming time of around 15 minutes. Plus, you'll love the flavors of the ginger and cilantro.

4. Whole Chicken
Similar to the fish, the whole chicken represents unity and family. Usually it's served whole with the head and feet included, but unless you go to an Asian grocery store, these types of chickens are hard to find.

5. Longevity Noodles
Noodle dishes are often served during Chinese New Year as long noodles respresent longevity in life. As such, it's best to serve long noodles and take care not to cut or damage the noodles when cooking. For a delicious and savory noodle dish, try my Pan-Fried Soy Sauce Noodles using egg noodles which tend to hold up nicely in cooking.

6. Shanghai Rice Cakes Stir Fry (Savory Rice Cakes)

Similar to the sweet version of my Chinese New Year cakes dessert recipe, these oval cakes (年糕 Niángāo) are also made from sticky rice. Stir-fried with cabbage and your favorite meat or seafood, this savory dish takes less than 10 minutes to cook and will ensure you have a more prosperous "higher year".

7. Traditional Chinese Almond Cookies
Do you remember eating these when you were young? Since these Chinese Almond cookies are circular and baked in the shape of a coin, it symbolizes good monetary fortune. Plus it's a sweet dessert which counts having a sweet year! How do they taste? Simply put, the store bought versions are nothing like the taste of my recipe for these homemade ones. So buttery and flavorful, you won't be able to eat just one! ​

8. Hot Pot
Hot Pot is one of the favorite family style dinners and also great for family gatherings like Chinese New Year. With a pot of hot boiling soup broth in the center of the table and raw ingredients like sliced meats, seafood and vegetables off to the side, this meal is interactive and fun!
The ingredients can be dipped in savory or sweet sauces, or even eaten plain! The best thing about this meal is that everyone can cook and eat the ingredients they like. For extra fortune and luck, shop and prepare for these suggested items to add to your soup:
  • Mushrooms: Increased Opportunities
  • Noodles: Long Life
  • Dumplings: Wealth and Fortune
  • Meatballs/ Fishballs: Reunion

How to choose the right pressure cooker.

How to choose the right pressure cooker.

When you’re shopping for a brand new pressure cooker, there are many important ‎factors and features to consider. Here’s how you can choose the perfect pressure ‎cooker to prepare mouthwatering meals in no time!‎

First factor: Capacity
Depending on your food consumption, you should first check the pressure cooker ‎size. Clipso Minut Perfect hold up to 9L of food for example so you can even ‎prepare large batches if you have a large family.‎

Second factor: Material
A pressure cooker made of high quality stainless steel is more durable and helps ‎handling the high heat to cook main dishes such as hot French onion soup or ‎desserts such as a spongy Marbled coffee cake.‎

Third factor: Quick release:‎
Before you proceed and buy a pressure cooker, a quick release system can come in ‎handy. This way, you can release the steam as quick as possible and avoid waiting ‎for it to be released completely or putting the pot under cold water to cool it.‎

Now that you’ve got the perfect guide to choose a pressure cooker, make sure you ‎read carefully how you can use it for the first time and the how to use it in a safe way.‎

This is how you can organize your fridge perfectly!

This is how you can organize your fridge perfectly!

Everything in your fridge probably has its place. We don’t just fit everything in and ‎hope that nothing falls out when we open the door. Instead, we place them on certain ‎shelves even if we do have to be creative with space sometimes.‎ We’ve been taught that food needs to go in a certain order when it comes to the fridge ‎and this is why we do it. But what if you’ve been organizing your fridge wrong for your ‎whole life?‎

Indeed, sometimes we put food on certain shelves that could be reducing its shelf life. ‎So the way you’re storing things in your fridge might be partially responsible for the ‎amount of food that you throw away. This is why you should be careful storing your ‎food so that you can actually cook it using your brand new Expertise pots and pans ‎gifted by your mother in law last Ramadan.‎

So what are we storing incorrectly in our fridges?

Milk
Everyone knows that milk goes in the fridge door, right? Wrong! Storing your milk in the ‎door of your fridge is the wrong place because the door is the warmest part of the ‎fridge. Your milk needs to be kept nice and cold or you will end up accidentally ‎drinking a slightly sour cup of coffee in the morning before the expiry date has been ‎reached.‎ Just store your milk on the middle shelf of your fridge and it will stay fresh for longer.‎

Cheese
Like milk, we might keep cheese in the little compartments in the fridge door. However, ‎cheese should be kept as cold as possible so place your hard cheeses on the middle ‎shelf next to your milk. And remember, fresh cheese means delicious mac n cheese for ‎dinner so it should not be spoiled!‎ The same goes for yogurts and eggs, so keep this shelf as a primarily dairy shelf. ‎However, butter and soft cheeses can go in the fridge door as this will stop them from ‎going too hard.‎

Raw meat
If you’re storing your raw meat and fish on the bottom shelf of your fridge, you’re right. ‎This is the best and coldest part of the fridge, so no risk of juices dripping onto other ‎food, which causes dangerous contamination. It is also important to package it all up ‎so it’s totally sealed so it will stay edible for longer.‎

Pre-cooked foods
Any that is already cooked such as chicken kabsa leftovers should stay on the top shelf of ‎your fridge. This shelf has the most consistent temperature, which ensures that ‎bacteria does not grow too quickly.‎

Now that you know where everything should be going in your fridge, it’s time to get ‎rearranging!‎
