Making Mint Extract and Chocolate Mint Ice Cream

We finished off a little glass bottle of almond extract a few months ago and looked at the tiny bottle critically, trying to decide if it would be useful to re-purpose it.

As it happened, we had a scant bit of silver rum left, too little for a set of drinks but too much for most recipes. Our chocolate mint plant was doing great, sending out lots of little shoots ecstatically seeking the sun.

Put everything together and you get homemade chocolate-mint extract!

We took a small jar, stuffed it about half-full with clean mint leaves, then

Deconstructed Tortilla Salad

Deconstructed Tortilla Salad

Mangoes are in season now and we’ve been getting a bunch of them for great prices lately. We also lucked into a fresh, ripe pineapple so I decided to try making a fruit-based salsa. It came out beautifully!

It’s hard to believe when a salsa I create from scratch comes out so nicely that just a couple of years ago I couldn’t make a salsa if my life depended on it.

Tortilla Chips, Tostadas and Taco Shells

Homemade Tortilla Chips and Citrusy Black Beans

The neat thing about doing your own taco shells is that you can do the same thing as with…

Flour-Corn Tortillas

We’ve tried making corn tortillas at home but it’s really, really hard. Oh sure, the recipe itself is easy – it’s no trouble at all to get a good dough going. The problem, however, is when you try to press them in the tortilla press (which we splurged on when it went on sale at the local Hispanic market). They stick or they crack and on the rare occasion when they don’t do either, they wait and do it in the pan. Or on the plate.

Frustrating. I know it can be done, but I think there’s a lot…
