Grilling Experiments 2

1 comment
Grilled Lemon Ginger Eggplant plus Grilled Ginger Lime Sweet Potato with Red Onion with Garlic and Lime. Bonus cold salad from leftovers!

Eggplant
2 large eggplants thoroughly washed and trimmed. Slice into ½ inch slices lengthwise. (See photo) If you find your knife slipping off the eggplant, use a serrated knife. Keep your knives sharp!
Grapeseed Oil (recommend for
grilling because it has a high smoke point. That means it is less likely to burn when you are grilling) lightly oil both sides of the eggplant and place in prep pan.
Eggplant

Red Onion
 
3 medium or large whole red onions peeled and sliced into ½ inch thick rounds.
Grapeseed Oil for grilling.

Red Onion

Sweet Potato
 
3-4 medium sweet potatoes, peeled and sliced lengthwise into ½ inch slices
Grapeseed Oil for grilling.

Sweet Potato

Directions:

Begin with the vegetable which needs the LEAST amount of grill time, in this case the eggplant, and layer them into your prep pan, oiling lightly as you stack. This way, you can easily take the vegetable which needs to MOST time on the grill out of your pan first, and place it on the grill. I use an old cake pan with handles to prep ingredients for the grill. This makes it easy to transport the food outside and, with a quick wash, back inside. Grill the vegies until they are soft enough to eat but not falling apart and are nicely browned to lightly charred, depending on your taste (and/or skill!)
Cut each kind of vegie into large dice, and dress, serve warm or cold.
Dressing for Eggplant
1 Tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger root
Juice of 1 large lemon (approximately 3 Tablespoons of lemon juice)
Dressing for Red Onions
2 Tablespoons finely minced garlic (more or less, to your taste.)
Juice of 2 limes (approximately 3 – 4 Tablespoons of juice)
Dressing for Sweet Potato
1 Tablespoon finely minced fresh ginger root
Juice of 2 limes (approximately 3 – 4 Tablespoons of juice)
Each of these vegies was DELICIOUS! We have no further suggestions for improving them. However, I made extra in order to make one further experiment, a cold salad for packed lunch the next day. There weren’t enough left over to make the salad, so I just mixed the three bits together and took them with lunch the next day. Fabulous! We happily offer these for your enjoyment. Happy Grilling!

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops

Leave a Comment
Some days ago I went to a market buying some dress, there I saw Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops. From then I am thinking how to make this. After many try I am successful and sharing this with you. :)

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops

To Prepare this I need some CandiQuik. So I buy some (actually I love chocolate)

CandiQuik

To prepare this we need to melt the chocolate first. Break the CandiQuik chocolate and put all of them into a microwave. Then We will take a drinking glass because I think this is the perfect size for dipping. We need to put chocolate in the microwave for 30 to 35 seconds. Now string after each session (until chocolate is melted and smooth).

CandiQuik

I put my marshmallows on sticks to make Marshmallow Pops.  You could also use the cute Paper Straws.  Dip the end of the stick in chocolate.

chocolate

Insert the stick into the bottom of Marshmallow. Because it will help marshmallow stick to the stick.

Marshmallow

Now we let it dry for some times before dipped the whole Marshmallow in the chocolate. Carefully cover the marshmallow.

Chocolate

Let the excess drip off before you pull it all the way out.

Like a ice cream

Now we will add sprinkles before the chocolate sets up. Just sprinkle all over the pop.

Dipped

Now need to dry it. And then place the pops in a Styrofoam brick. This will keep the pops from touching each other. And cold helps the chocolate dry faster which can stop drips of chocolate down the sticks.

Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops

Ahh!!!! We almost done. Chocolate Dipped Marshmallow Pops is ready. :)
