Do you serve the frozen yogurt soft from the ice cream maker or firm it up in a freezer 1st?

Depends on how hungry I am! I've done both, and also frozen the leftovers overnight in the freezer, which gets harder, but softens up in a minute or two once I take it out. :drool:

Rose,

I'd like to make some blueberry frozen yogurt for my wife. Based on your experience does this sound like a good recipe:

This relish recipe is just in time for Halloween! I can fix up a big batch and just ladle it right into the kid's bags when they come to the door. :grin:

Since Rebelliousrose has a couple of cranberry recipies up here is an article on the evolution of cranberries:

I got the recipe from the Martha Stewart Everday Food magazine, and of course, having made it, had to mess with it. This is the unmessed with version, followed by the messed with, and why......

Cranberry Upside Down Cake -

8 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1 3/4 cups cranberries
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup milk
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees with rack in center. Rub the bottom and sides of an 8-inch round cake pan with 2 tablespoons butter. In a small bowl, whisk together 1/2 cup sugar with the cinnamon and allspice. Sprinkle mixture evenly over bottom of pan; arrange cranberries in a single layer on top.
- With an electric mixer, cream remaining 6 tablespoons butter and 1/2 cup sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla; beat until well combined. In another bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture in three batches, alternating with the milk, until well combined.
- Spoon batter over cranberries in pan, and smooth top. Place pan on a baking sheet; bake cake until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack for 20 minutes. Run a knife around edge of cake; invert onto a rimmed platter.

My additions, subtractions and comments:

For the next time I make it, I will use twice the cranberries the recipe calls for- it needed more. I will also bake the cran/sugar/spice mixture for about ten minutes before I pour in the cake batter, because the berries and sugar didn't make quite enough syrup to soak the cake. If you give them a bit of a head starrt, it will help. Also, I'd make it in a Bundt pan- a flat pan looks pretty, and works fine, but it had a tendency to stick when I inverted it, and people who have used Bundt pans say it works better. I'd also add about 1/2 tblsp of melted butter to the cran/sugar/spice mix to help the syrup along. Overbaking the cake (after the toothpick is clean +5 min) helps make a denser cake; also I might take a skewer to the cake itself while it's cooling to make channels for the syrup to run.

I put a little vanilla extract in the cran mixture as well, just because I like it.

I have been trying to make BBQ baked beans (starting with dry beans, not canned). My 1st 2 batches were failures. The 1st inedible. The second edible, but not tasty. Does anyone have a good recipe?

Okay, let me get this straight: You leave the orange skin on and just chop it up in the blender? Is the skin the same as the peel? Or is the skin just the white membrane inside? Is it supposed to be served with little bits of orange peel in it?

Yep. Personally, I use the Cuisinart to chop, (and I cheat and do the apples in it as well on pulse setting) and you want to make sure to de-seed the orange first. Skin, pith and peel all the same piece. It's pretty darn good. Keeps for a few weeks, too, in the fridge; Mom used to make it on Tgiving and keep it until Xmas. You can also throw in a (tiny) bit of liquor like rum or brandy if you want.

That almond sparkling wine-cranberry sauce I made on the fly one year. This year I used cognac, vanilla schnapps, ginger, and Frangelico.
