The Big World Recipes Index


All Recipes Index: This page contains the sub headings to all the big world recipe pages.

Covering the recipes by section it includes Desert Recipes, Baking recipes, Cream recipes, Jam recipes Hot recipes, Bread recipes, Cold recipes, Chutneys and pickled recipes.

In time as it grows i hope it will become a recipe book because I have tried to include basic methods of producing staple foods. It is a joy to discover a food you have purchased is really simple and nearly always less dear to cook at home.

they have all been adjusted for timing, ingredients and methods to make them suitable for anyone who has a cooker and a limited amount of cooking tools to make.

The emphasis is on recipes that one can make out of ingredients that are easily and readily available and cheap. those that call for herbs also have links to the site on how to grow them.

Recipe pages from the big world sites:

Pickled Recipes pages: Recipes include Pickled onions, beetroots, eggs, gherkins, walnuts, chillies and more.

Most Pickled recipes use vinegar as a means of preserving. The food is preserved in the vinegar which soaks in to the foodstuff and removes the air stopping most of the oxidising process. Some Pickled recipes are made in brine which uses the foods natural bacteria to sour it and others use a mixture of brine and vinegar which both sours and preserves the food. The subjects of jars, canning, storage, hygiene, vinegars, labelling, spicing, and brining are also covered. - Pickled Recipe Pages

There are two main types of these preserves that can be listed under chutneys, pickles and confitures They are all similar in some respects but the main characteristics are:
Confiture: Confit, French roughly translates as "to preserve", is most often applied to the preservation of meats, however, the term can also refer to fruit or vegetables which have been seasoned and cooked with honey or sugar until it has reached a jam-like consistency
Chutney: Generally these chutneys are fruit, vinegar, and sugar cooked down to a reduction. They can be wet or dry.
