Develop Devilish Dishes with Squid Ink!

...if you dare!


What are some benefits of squid ink consumption? 

Squid ink is very high in a number of important nutrients. It’s particularly high in antioxidants for instance, which as well all know help to protect the cells and the heart against damage from free radicals. This means that squid ink might be useful in combating the visible signs of ageing, heart disease and various threats to the immune system....
...Iron here is particularly high in quantities and this can help to improve red blood cell count and to combat anemia. Squid ink extracts are sometimes used for this very purpose. Meanwhile, the presence of dopamine means that squid ink could have a number of positive mental effects too – increasing focus, concentration and memory among other things.

Are we wasting the good stuff?


Popular Science Article: Americans keep buying veggies and then throwing them away!

"earlier studies found that of the millions of tons of food that the United States produces each year, between 31 and 40 percent is wasted—more than any other country in the world." 

"Spiker’s work takes the existing research a step further to look at what types of foods—and what nutrients—are most frequently wasted, and by whom. She found that while retailers and consumers waste an equal number of calories, consumers waste far more nutrients. We’re not throwing out snack cakes, but we are throwing out spinach."

THTH-Sweet or Salty?

Theory ThursdayRobert McGinnisComment

Water + Salt = ICE CREAM!


How:

"Salt makes the melting rate of ice slower. Salt requires the ice to use more energy to melt. This draws more heat from the solution, which results in a larger temperature drop." - Sciencing

"This knowledge had lead to keeping our favorite cold icy treat from melting! Old-fashioned ice cream makers used rock salt to lower the temperature around the buckets that the ice cream was being made in. The salt helps the ice cream freeze faster, dropping the water to a lower freezing point than the 32 degrees F before the salt." - Sciencing

ThTH- Hop, Hop, Hop into Pancake Art!

Theory ThursdayRobert McGinnisComment

The universal food we all have in common!...

Pancakes are an ancient food that has lasted generations. Greek and Romans made their pancakes sweet with honey, while Elizabethans used spices, rosewater, sherry, and apples! Thin, thick, stacked, stuffed, baked, no matter the end results based on geography or customs, we all eat a form of pancakes. This seems to be the case because no matter where you are pancakes help us use up the last of the milk, eggs, and butter before they go bad! 

(Click HERE to read more on pancake history from National Geographic)

So give the people what they want, but mix it up with pancake art!...


What fun do you have in store this Easter?
