As I have added to these recipes I've realized that I need to add some additional information on the ingredients and the way that we cook at the Jordan house. This list will grow.
|Salt - Use Kosher salt for cooking. When we cook we keep a small dish of Kosher salt handy and use it as needed.|
|Pepper - We use only freshly ground pepper for both cooking and dining. It does make a difference.|
|Chicken Broth - Sharon makes her own. We save chicken pieces in the freezer, wing tips, backs etcetera, until we've got enough to make a batch of chicken broth. Then, we pour the broth into 16 ounce plastic cups, cover them, and freeze them. In emergencies we will use Swanson Chicken Broth (and Beef Broth.)|
|Knives - Cooking school made converts of Sharon and me. Buy good knives - Wustoff or Henckles and treat them well. They will make your preparation work easier, faster, safer, and more enjoyable.|
|Spices - Use fresh where possible - and Penzeys for everything else!|
