In a famous group about cooking, Ms. Cao Kim Chi (Da Nang) shared a recipe for this dish, which many people have applied and achieved the desired results. Let’s discover how to do it very simply to help you never fail right now!

Ms. Cao Kim Chi – 32 years old with many years of experience in the kitchen, currently lives with her husband in Da Nang

1. How to choose delicious jackfruit

In order for dried jackfruit to achieve a delicious and successful rate, you need to choose to buy ripe jackfruit. Should choose large fruits, smooth spines, but avoid overripe and soft jackfruit. Therefore, in the processing process, it is very difficult for you to succeed even though you have applied the recipe standard.

To avoid buying injected jackfruit, you need to pay attention to the following signs:

The scent of jackfruit injected with stimulants will not be as fragrant as the aroma of natural ripe jackfruit. Jackfruit injected with stimulants will secrete a lot of white plastic. Ripe jackfruit often, when cut out, will see less plastic and will usually not have white plastic. In addition, when the jackfruit feels heavier in the hand, it will be more fragrant and delicious. You should also choose jackfruit with yellow-brown skin, soft, flat jackfruit spines and not too far apart. Do not choose jackfruits that are still green, have hard spines and are located close to each other because such jackfruit is unripe and has not reached a certain aroma.

2. How to separate the jackfruit so that the plastic doesn’t stick to your hands

Applying cooking oil to the palm of your hand and then adding jackfruit is the most popular way. Use rice close to the palm of your hand when cutting jackfruit, because rice bran powder will have the effect of washing away the plastic layers that are adhered to the hands. Use lemon to rub on your hands or a knife used to cut jackfruit

3. Steps to make dried jackfruit

Step 1: Prepare jackfruit

Use a knife to separate the jackfruit, seeds and fibers. Then, you soak the jackfruit in a bowl of cold water with 1 teaspoon of salt and the juice of 1 lemon (depending on the amount of jackfruit). Stir well and soak jackfruit in water for 10 to 15 minutes. After soaking, take out all the jackfruit and wait for it to drain.

Soak jackfruit in salt water.

So what about the jackfruit part? Don’t leave in a hurry! Because you can enjoy large chunks of jackfruit, dipping it with o mai salt is equally delicious and sweet.

Step 2: Drying jackfruit

– Divide the amount of jackfruit into about 2-3 parts, so that when drying the jackfruit will dry faster and the jackfruit will be more delicious and flexible. You can put the jackfruit directly in the air fryer or put a piece of foil on the bottom and then arrange the jackfruit on top. Spread the pieces of jackfruit evenly, avoiding the case of too much stacking on top of each other

– Adjust the oven to 80 degrees Celsius, bake for about 4 hours. Continuously like this, this batch is then removed and then put a new batch in with the same step.

How To Make Turkish Coffee (With Pictures)

1Measure the coffee. Turkish coffees are small beverages made with strong coffee. Each cup of coffee should be made with about 2 teaspoons (3.5 g) of coffee grounds. If you’re working with whole beans that must be ground, measure 2 heaping teaspoons of beans for each coffee.

Arabica beans are most often used for Turkish coffee, and Kurukahveci Mehmet Efendi is among the most popular brands.

2Grind the beans. Because Turkish coffee doesn’t get filtered, it’s important to grind the beans extremely finely. You can use a Turkish coffee mill if you have one, or use the finest setting on an electric grinder. You can also grind fresh beans at the grocery store, and many of these grinders have a Turkish coffee setting.[1] X Research source

Properly ground Turkish coffee beans will look like soft cocoa powder.[2] X Research source

Because the beans must be so finely ground, many people purchase pre-ground Turkish coffee blends.

3Measure the water. Turkish coffee is served in a special cup known as a fincan. The easiest way to measure the water for the coffee is to pour the water into the fincan. Measure one and a half fincans worth of water for each coffee. This works out to about 1.7 ounces (50 ml) of water.[3] X Research source

For the best tasting coffee, always use water that’s cold and fresh.

4Measure the sugar. Sugar is an optional ingredient in Turkish coffee, and everybody has an individual preference. There are typically four sugar levels used to sweeten Turkish coffee:

Sade: no sugar (unsweetened)

Az seker: 1 teaspoon (4.5 g) of sugar (mildly sweet)

Orta: 2 teaspoons (9 g) of sugar (sweet)

Sekerli: 3 to 4 teaspoons (14 to 18.75 g) of sugar (very sweet)

Brewing the Coffee

1Combine the ingredients. Turkish coffee is brewed in a cezve (also called an ibrik). This is a small, long-handled pot made of brass or copper.[4] X Research source Combine the coffee, water, and desired amount of sugar in the cezve and stir vigorously to combine all the ingredients.

For an added spice, you can also stir in ⅛ teaspoon (0.25 g) of cardamom to the cezve, or a single cardamom pod.[5] X Research source

If you don’t have a cezve, you can use a small saucepan instead. A cezve can be purchased online, or from some specialty coffee shops.

2Heat the coffee. Turn a gas stove to low flame, or an electric stove to low heat. Place the pot on the heat and stir the ingredients together for one minute. After a minute, stop stirring and leave the coffee to brew.[6] X Research source

Keep the heat or flame low when you brew the coffee. You don’t want the water to boil, or it will change the flavor of the coffee and destroy the foam that you want to build.[7] X Research source

3Brew the coffee until the foam forms. One of the most important elements of Turkish coffee is the foam that forms on top. As the coffee brews, the dark foam will build around the rim of the beverage. This will take three to four minutes. Pay close attention to the coffee as it brews to watch for the foam, but don’t stir it.

If the coffee looks like it might begin to boil, remove it from the heat for a few seconds to cool it down.

4Pour the foam into the cup. After three to four minutes, when the foam has formed on the top of the coffee, remove the cezve from the heat and pour the foam into your fincan. Then, return the cezve to the heat.[8] X Research source

To remove the foam from the cezve, you may have to use a spoon to help pour it out.

5Continue heating the coffee. Brew the coffee for an additional 15 to 20 seconds after returning it to the chúng tôi will give the coffee a chance to raise again, which means coming close to a boil and creating new foam.

Some traditions call for three to four raisings (removing the cezve from the heat, pouring out the foam, and returning it to the heat), whereas some say to do this once or not at all. You can experiment with different methods to find your preferred flavors.

6Pour the coffee. After about 20 seconds, remove the cezve from the heat. Pour the full contents of the cezve into the fincan, foam, grounds, and all. Serve the coffee immediately while it’s still hot and fresh.[9] X Research source

Serving and Drinking Turkish Coffee

1Clean coffee spills from the glass. After pouring the coffee, use a damp cloth to clean any coffee that may have spilled on the rim or down the side of the fincan. Place the fincan on a saucer before serving it.

2Serve the eldest guests first. In Turkey and many other areas of the world, it is considered disrespectful to serve younger guests before older ones. When you’re making coffee for a group of people, always serve the coffee first to the older guests, and then serve according to age (from eldest to youngest).

3Let the grounds settle before drinking. As the coffee cools in the fincan, the grounds will settle to the bottom. This will allow you to enjoy the coffee without drinking the grounds. Let the coffee sit for at least 30 seconds before taking your first sip.[10] X Research source

4Serve the coffee with Turkish delight. Turkish coffee is often served with a few small treats or sweet snacks, and a piece of Turkish delight is a wonderful way to complement the coffee. Other treats you can serve with this coffee include:[11] X Research source

Cookies

Chocolates

Candies

5Serve the coffee with a glass of water. Sipping water is a great way to clean your palate, so Turkish coffee is usually served with a glass of water. That way, you can take a sip before drinking the coffee and get the most enjoyment out of it.[12] X Research source

6Take small sips of the coffee. This type of coffee is small and strong, and it’s best consumed in small sips.[13] X Research source Not only will this help the coffee last longer, but the air you breathe in when you sip will also help aerate the coffee and bring out its flavors.

7Don’t drink the last sip. The final one to two sips of Turkish coffee are coffee grounds that have settled on the bottom. When you get near the end of your coffee, set it down on the saucer without drinking the last bit, otherwise you’ll get a mouthful of grounds.[14] X Research source

How To Clean Your Cleaning Supplies

Empty Bag or Reusable Cup

After every use, dispose of the bag or empty the reusable cup. At least monthly, give the reusable cup a quick wash with hot water and a bit of dishwashing liquid to remove any trapped dust and greasy film.

Remove Trapped Dirt

Take the broom outside and run the bristles over the edge of a step to whisk away trapped dirt.

Remove Embedded Dust

If the duster looks soiled or isn’t picking up dust as well as it once did, mix a solution of warm water and a bit of dishwashing liquid. Swish the duster through the mixture for several minutes. Rinse with warm water until it runs clear of any soapy residue.

Gently squeeze out excess water and hang to drip dry. When the fibers or feathers are dry, rotate the handle between the palms of your hands to restore the proper shape.

How to Clean Cotton and Microfiber Cloths

Both types of cloths have their strengths when doing chores. Choose cotton cloths for heavy-duty jobs and anything that involves oily or harsh cleaning products. Microfiber cloths are more delicate and should never be used for heavy cleaning jobs. Use them for dusting or drying dishes only.

What You Need

Supplies

Heavy-duty laundry detergent

Chlorine bleach

Degreaser (optional)

Washing machine

Sink

Instructions

Wash Cotton Cloths

Cotton cloths used for cleaning can be washed in the washing machine using hot water and a heavy-duty detergent to remove soil. If you’re concerned about bacteria, add chlorine bleach to the wash cycle.

If the cotton cloths are coated with grease or excessive amounts of cleaning products, allow them to presoak in a solution of hot water and a degreaser before washing. Never place oil-soaked cloths in a clothes dryer even after washing. They are combustible. Allow them to line dry.

Clean Microfiber Cloths

Wash microfiber cloths in warm water and avoid any fabric softeners or dryer sheets that will disrupt the dust-attracting qualities of the fibers.

How to Clean and Disinfect a Cleaning Bucket

Always start a cleaning chore with a clean bucket.

What You Need

Supplies

Hot water

Chlorine bleach, pine oil or phenolic disinfectant

Instructions

Rinse Bucket

After the cleaning chore is finished, rinse the bucket with hot water.

Disinfect the Bucket

Fill the bucket with at least one gallon of hot water. Following label directions, add chlorine bleach, pine oil or phenolic disinfectant (Lysol). Swish solution around the interior of the bucket and dispose of the solution responsibly.

Warning

Never mix different cleaning products because toxic fumes can form. Always use chemicals in a well-ventilated space.

All You Need To Know About Vietnamese Tet Food (Northern)

Photo by intertour

A Hard Life Begets a Taste for Strong Flavors

The natural condition of the land shapes its people and the region’s nutritional choices. To economize, they complete their meal with ample amounts of white rice. Also, because most central families work in fisheries, they have to preserve seafood with processes that give it extra flavor.

Because of this, Central people tend to prefer salty, spicy, and fermented foods. Fermented foods are served during economic downturns and severe weather conditions, and food that is spicy and salty helps them combat the numbing cold of winters. Let’s learn what a typical Central Vietnam family serves during the Lunar New Year.

Bánh Tét (Tet Cake or Vietnamese Round Glutinous Rice Cake)

When celebrating Tet with food, Vietnamese say it “ăn Tết”. Maybe you don’t know Vietnamese, but the word “Tét” should sound familiar!

Like bánh chưng, bánh tét also represents heaven and the earth. It also emphasizes the importance of rice in the life of Vietnamese people. During Tet, people of Central Vietnam put a pair of Tet cakes on the altar to worship their ancestors. The first three days of the New Year are the perfect time for family and friends to visit, and bánh tét is an ideal dish to serve to guests coming to the house.

This Tet specialty is made with sticky rice and filled with pork fat and beans that are seasoned with black pepper and shallots. It’s wrapped in banana leaves giving it an appealing pale green color and a slightly leafy taste. To prevent the banana leaf from coming apart while it’s cooking, people wrap it several times with a plastic ribbon before steaming.

How was bánh tét first created? Some studies have claimed that bánh tét is a different version of bánh chưng—a similar food which is also stuffed with beans and pork—but this one is presented in a cylindrical shape due to the process of southward expansion in the 17th century. According to these studies, when Vietnam expanded southward to capture the former territory of Champa Kingdom, the dish was adapted to the colonized peoples’ tastes. Bánh tét was thus shaped by a desire to affect the linga, a phallic-shaped post associated with the deity Siva, according to Cham belief. The culture’s artistic productions prominently feature rods and poles for this reason

One serving contains small, neat, and beautiful slices of bánh tét. Vietnamese are also known to enjoy the dish fried, which gives the bánh tét a delicious, chewy crispness.

Dưa Món (Pickled Vegetables)

Just as bánh chưng is typically paired with onion pickles in the North, bánh tét goes along with dưa món (vegetable pickles). It’s not the đồ chua (pickled vegetable) you have experienced in Vietnamese bánh mì before. The vegetables in dưa món carry a distinct, extra crunchy texture.

What’s the secret to this textural peculiarity?

To answer this question, start by looking at the dried vegetables. People from Central Vietnam usually dry carrots and radishes in the sun for a few days until the vegetables get perfectly dried.

These dried veggies will soak up tons of flavor when cooked instead of going soggy like they otherwise would. They’ll hold texture even after sitting in the fish sauce for a few days. They remain crunchy with an al dente bite that’s truly addicting.

If it’s impossible to dry your vegetables due to cloud cover or pollution, just use your oven. Set it on the lowest heat with the over door cracked open for three to four hours or if you have a gas stove give it about five to six hours with just the pilot light on. Follow these instructions and you can also achieve that same appropriate texture.

A properly executed dish of dưa món carries the aroma, flavor, and sweetness of fish sauce and sugar as well as the crunchiness of papaya. The added daikon complements the beautiful vivid color of carrots.

Nem chua (Fermented Pork Roll)

Nem chua is an indispensable dish of the Central Vietnamese Tet tradition. It is made from fresh pureed pork mixed with pork skin, marinated with spices, pepper, chili, all of which are fermented before becoming ripe for consumption.

Some won’t dare to eat nem chua at first as they know this dish is made from completely raw pork. However, once you give it a try, you will slowly fall for its addictive light sourness, sweetness, crunchiness, spiciness, and the fragrance blended on their tongue.

Each province presents its sense of flavor and natural resources by using different leaves as wrapping materials. For example, Ninh Hoa’s nem chua wears gooseberry leaves, Binh Dinh’s nem chua goes with guava leaves. These wrapping materials also contribute greatly to the flavor of each fermented pork roll.

With close inspection, it’s easy to see that nem chua has two layers of wrapping. It has a layer of interior leaves, which decide the taste of nem chua mentioned above. The other is outer leaves, which are usually banana leaves. The banana leaf layer’s thickness depends on how deeply fermented one would like their nem chua (more leaf means more fermentation). Normally, two layers of banana leaves are laid crisscross.

If you can’t afford to make it your own, no worry. Here are some of tips from the people of Central Vietnam to find the best nem chua. First, a well done nem chua must have dried surface. Second, it should have a slightly pink color, firm meat and reasonable sourness.

Nem chua can be eaten plain or served with wine in amongst a Tet feast. Each region has different ways to evaluate the flavor of the dish. Though North’s people prefer its original sourness, people from Central and South Vietnam usually add sugar, garlic, chili, and pepper to increase the spiciness and sweetness of nem chua.

Thịt heo ngâm mắm (Meat Soaked in Fish Sauce)

Meat soaked in fish sauce is a simple, flavorful yet super-easy-to-make dish. This charming treat is a traditional dish at a Tet meal in Central Vietnam. Over centuries and generations, Central Vietnam’s families still love to have a dish of meat soaked in fish sauce at their Lunar New Year feast.

For locals, a roll of thịt ngâm mắm is well rounded and balanced flavour wise. The salty taste of the dish coupled with veggies dipped in sweet fish sauce play nicely against the spiciness of chili, pepper, garlic, and ginger to together create an exceptional culinary experience.

Mắm Tôm Chua (Fermented Shrimp Sauce)

If we’re going to talk about Central Vietnamese cuisine, we just can’t leave out its famous dish: mắm. And, at this time of year, mắm tôm chua is proudly in attendance in a traditional Tet meal. Unlike Mắm tôm—the well-known shrimp sauce that has a dark purple color and smooth surface—sour shrimp sauce owes its appealing orange color to the shrimp.

In order to make this sauce, the shrimp must be cleaned with salt water and slightly cooked in strong rice wine. Carefully mix the shrimp with sticky rice, sliced galangal, garlic, and chili before combining the mixture into a jar. Everything is covered with guava leaves and left for five to seven days.

Pour crushed garlic, chili, and sugar into the bowl of sour shrimp sauce, and mix them well with a spoon. Season the mixture until it matches your own sense of taste. Finally, squeeze a few drops of lemon in, and your sauce is ready.

One Beer Size

As noted, you will get a different number of beers depending on your cup sizes. A standard pint contains 16 ounces (473 ml), but you can also have 12- or 14-ounces (355 – 414 ml) glasses at your party.

You can see typical red solo glasses of about 16 ounces (473 ml) at every college feast. However, a quick internet search will show you that you can also find models of 32 ounces (946 ml).

The bigger the glass, the lower the number of beers you can tap from a keg. Plan your guest list and decide on a drink card to avoid wasting beer. If you plan to offer other drinks, you will need approximately one beer per person every two hours.

Renting a Keg

Once you get familiar with keg sizes and determine the approximate number of drinks you need, it is time to consider whether renting a keg is a cost-effective option. Most kegs are returnable, and you only buy a beer. The exceptions are mini-kegs, which you can recycle after use.

Remember that renting a keg comes with a variety of additional expenses. You need to place a deposit, rent a tap, and pay for delivery. Plus, you will need to order a tub and ice bags.

All these expenses can top $100, depending on the place you order, whether you pick up the keg, and other factors. Many people believe that they will save money ordering a keg, but they often pay more than cans.

Keep in mind that your beer in the keg will go bad quickly if you don’t have a kegerator. On the other hand, you can always store the excess cans for the next gathering.

Tips for Using the Keg

Once you start the keg, there will be some wasted beer. You can expect the first few beers to have more foam than liquid, but the same happens when the keg is almost empty. However, there are some tips to reduce losses to a minimum and pour a perfect glass of beer.

Don’t shake a keg

Place a keg where it will stand for the rest of the evening, be it in a bathtub, a tub with ice, or a clean garbage can. Let it rest for at least an hour before you tap it.

That way, you will allow the foam formed during transport to settle. Any shaking, moving from place to place, or accidental knocking down will create excess foam. As a result, you will get less beer from it.

Use a kegerator

Kegerator can be pricey, but it will pay off if you buy kegs relatively often. Besides keeping your drink cold, it reduces the chance of the beer spoiling.

You can spend a ton of ice to cool a beer, but you can’t store leftovers for longer than a couple of days. Plus, many liquor stores will charge an additional fee if you don’t return the keg on time.

Summary

The amount of beer in a keg depends on its size. There are several keg types different in volume, so it is impossible to give just one answer. Plus, the beer serving dose determines how many drinks there are in one keg.

3 Ways To Throw A Knuckleball

1Try the two-knuckle grip. Arch your pointer and middle fingers so that the tips are facing down. Grab the ball so that the fingers you put down are right beneath the horseshoe seam on the baseball. Each baseball has four separate horseshoes, so any one will do.

Dig your two fingernails into the middle of the seams behind the horseshoe. Use enough pressure so that the ball is firmly grasped but be careful not chip your fingernail or injury your finger tip.

Stabilize the ball with your thumb and ring finger on opposite sides of the ball.

2Try the three-knuckle grip. Arch your pointer, middle, and ring fingers so that the tips are facing down. Grab the ball so that the fingers you put down are right beneath the horseshoe seam on the baseball.[2] X Research source

Dig your three fingernails into the middle of the seams behind the horseshoe. Use enough pressure so that the ball is firmly grasped with injuring your fingertips.

Stabilize the ball with your thumb and pinky finger on opposite sides of the ball.

3Try the four-knuckle grip. Arch your pointer, middle, ring, and pinky fingers so that the tips are facing down. Grab the ball so that the fingers you put down are right beneath the horseshoe seam on the baseball.[3] X Research source

Dig your four fingernails into the middle of the seams behind the horseshoe. Use enough pressure so that the ball is firmly grasped with injuring your fingertips.

Keep your thumb off to the side of the ball, slightly underneath it. This is your only stability point so you may need to grip harder to control the ball.

4Throw from the fingertips. Avoid digging your knuckles into the ball. Although the knuckleball was originally thrown with the knuckles pointing into the ball rather than the finger tips, this is not as effective. You’re trying to reduce the amount of spin you put on the ball. Grabbing the ball with your knuckles may cause the ball to rotate more than necessary. This can create more spin, less movement, and the pitch will be easier to hit.

Executing the Pitch

1Keep a fast arm motion. Go through your windup normally, with a normal fastball motion until you reach your release point. The knuckleball should look like a fastball until the pitcher reveals the ball right before his release. You don’t want to tip your pitches to the batter.[4] X Research source

Don’t alter your arm slot or anything else. This can reduce the chance your knuckleball will knuckle and end up as a soft lob.

2Keep your wrist up as you release the pitch. This is essential to getting minimal amount of spin. Throwing a fastball, you usually move your wrist down as you release the ball, creating steady spin on the ball and causing it to travel straight, more or less. Throwing a knuckleball, you try to do the opposite, because you don’t want spin.

Extend your fingertips out as you release the ball. This will minimize spin.

Try to let your knuckles be the topmost point of your hand as you release. Having your knuckles at the very top of your hand will ensure that less spin is created when you release the ball.

3Perfect your release. Let the ball slip through your hands by releasing your thumb from the grip. Follow through and end as if you are throwing any other pitch.

Optimizing your Knuckleball

1Know who to use it against. Batters that prefer to hit fastballs over breaking pitches are more likely struggle with the knuckleball. Ask your teammates what they know about the batter or watch them playing other teams.

Batters who are generally impatient and swing a lot are also good targets for the knuckleball.[5] X Research source

2Known when to use it. Your knuckleball may become predictable if you use it too often, especially when you’re new to it and still perfecting your technique. Start out using it as a strikeout and change-of-pace pitch.

Use your strikeout pitches when you have a two-strike count except when the count is full.

If you’re using it as an occasional change-of-pace pitch, try to only use it once per inning or less.

3Practice with catch. It’s harder to throw a knuckleball out of the windup than it is when you’re playing catch. After warming up, line up about 30 feet away from your throwing partner and practice mastering the grip and the motion before you combine it all in a pitch.[6] X Research source

4Practice by throwing straight up. Lie down and practice throwing the knuckler upwards instead of out. Practice getting the right grip and release. Throwing the ball vertically will help your muscle memory remember to keep your wrist up as you release.[7] X Research source

5Practice by playing hot potato. Try zero-rotation hot potato with some friends or teammates. For an added challenge, try to get all involved in the game to throw knuckleballs.[8] X Research source

Community Q&A

QuestionWhat is the best grip to use?Community AnswerThe best grip for me is the three knuckle grip but remember that the “horseshoe” should look like a backwards “C” like a four-seam fastball.

QuestionWhat is a knuckleball exactly?Community AnswerIt is a pitch with little to no spin, and makes random and unpredicted movements.
