ScanPan Ǽbleskiver Pan

ScanPan offers its version of theTraditional Danish Ǽbleskiver pan in non-stick cast aluminum. Lightweight and easy to clean with even heat distribution. It is dishwasher safe but easy to wipe clean with a paper towel. This perfect hostess gift is often presented with recipe ingredients, which are available in a mix from Scandinavian specialty stores and on line. Literally translated, Ǽbleskiver means apple slices, but modern variations include jam fillings. Topped with powdered sugar makes this delectable sweet dessert or breakfast dish.

Æbleskiver "Pancake Puffs" (Danish pronunciation: [ˈɛːb̥ləˌsɡ̊iːʊ̯ɐ], [singular: æbleskive]), also called "appleskives" are traditional pancakes in a distinctive shape of a sphere. The name literally means apple slices in Danish, although apples are not usually an ingredient in present-day versions. Somewhat similar in texture to European pancakes crossed with a popover or Yorkshire pudding, æbleskiver are solid like a pancake but light and fluffy like a popover. The English language spelling is usually aebleskiver or ebleskiver.

B-K Represents Fermentation Specialist Kraut Source

If you're already buying fermented foods, you know how expensive that can get. Kraut Source encourages the DIY, artisanal spirit by enabling home cooks to create gourmet live-cultured foods that are delicious, nutritious, and economical.

In today's ultra-fast, tech-crazed, and stress-obsessed world, we need to counter balance all that hyper activity and reconnect with nature by nourishing ourselves with down-to-earth, real, hand-crafted edibles–healthy edibles such as sauerkraut, pickles, and other lacto-fermented foods.

Kraut Source is designed for singles and families of all sizes. The unit fits on wide-mouth mason jars so you can make pint, quart, or half-gallon sized batches. Unlike traditional stoneware fermentation crocks, Kraut Source takes up little space so you can have several batches fermenting simultaneously, and they'll be ready in a fraction of the time. The glass jar enables you to observe your progress. Its elegant, streamlined design also means it will look nifty on your countertop.

Our mission at Kraut Source:

PROMOTE health to people and the planet through cultured foods

ENCOURAGE the world to learn and enjoy making lacto-fermented foods

RESTORE the lost art of homemade, hand-crafted preserved foods

REVIVE domestic culinary arts and inspire families to eat together at the dining table

BODUM® RECOMMENDS

Tea is the world’s most consumed beverage, outside of water. Bodum provides consumers with a wide range of tea brewing and service products as well as many years of expertise in home brewing tea and service.

Water Temperature for Brewing Tea

The temperature at which you steep tea matters - delicate leaves steeped at too high of a temperature will burn and leave a bitter flavor in the cup. BODUM® Teas have recommended steep temperatures, but there are a few hard and fast rules you can follow to determine what steep temperature to use:

Below Boiling Water Temperature

White and green teas have delicate leaves, and therefore require below boiling water temperatures between 170 and 185 degrees Fahrenheit. Too high of a temperature will cook the leaves and ruin their delicate flavors.

Medium Boil Temperature

Oolong teas should be brewed at temperatures between 180 and 190 degrees Fahrenheit.

Full Boil Temperatures

Black and Herbal teas brew best at a full boil temperatures 208 and 212 degrees Fahrenheit.
