      Hey gren, on the dip you added for me, I don't microwave it, I do it all on the stove in a pot after cooking the meat.

      I suppose one could microwave it like that, but that's not typically how I do it.

      Yeah this looks pretty good to me too. Think I might try to make it soon. A few years back we developed a condominium project on Edisto Island near Charleston. There was only one gas station on the island and this old black woman ran a restaurant inside and she was a hell of a cook. She was a Gullah, a direct decendant of the African slaves that were bought and sold through the slave market in old Charleston. She made a fried grits dish that was awesome.

      I made an apple pie tonight. The crust was a little different than one I'm used to making. Rather than using butter, lard. or shortening it called for vegetable oil which meant I didn't have to cut the fat in. I haven't cut it yet because it's a little late. If it turns out ok I'll post the recipe. I was going to do a lattice crust but I rolled it too thin and it kept breaking on me so I just rolled a top crust.

        A little German girl brought this to the office, it was great. I made it at home, it was still great

        CROCK POT CORN CHOWDER

        2 large carrots, chopped

        1 large onion, chopped

        4 large/medium potatoes diced

        2x14 oz cans of corn, drained

        2x14 oz cans of creamed corn

        4 cups chicken broth

        1 lb bacon, cooked and crumbled

        1/2 teaspoon thyme

        salt & pepper to taste

        Cook in slow cooker for 5 hours on high

        Add:

        1x12 oz can of evaporated milk

        2 table spoons of corn starch

        Cook on High for 20 more minutes

        season to taste

        FOR SEAFOOD CHOWDER:

        replace 1/2 of chicken stock with fish or shrimp stock

        Add 1 1/2 lbs shrimp in final 20 minutes

        replace some of the evaporated milk with sweetened condensed milk ( think of scallops and it's liquor from St Joe Bay)

        Both of these are simple and quite tasty

        OK the apple pie I made last week wasn't what I hoped for. It looked good but in fact it was awful. The crust was heavy and the filling was undercooked, even after being in the oven at the start at 475 and then reduced after about 15 minutes to 350 for another 45 minutes. This time I cut in about 1 3/4 cups of lard and cold water with about a teaspoon of white vinegar. The apples I used last week were Granny Smith and although they were real beauty's they were tough and chewy. Tonight I used a regular 9" metal cake pan instead of the deep dish ceramic cookware and used 4 Red Delicious apples. I pre-cooked the filling long enough for the sugar, flour and cinnamon to melt and the sliced apples to soften and then added the filling to the crust. It's after midnight now so I won't cut it until tomorrow.[​IMG]

          That chowder looks good. Anytime you put a pound of bacon and corn together it's gotta be good, but It looks to me like it wouldn't all fit in a crockpot. I might try that in a larger stock pot and maybe add some Grands on top or a cornmeal dumpling. I gotta have bread.

          I just ate a huge piece of the apple pie with some Cool Whip and unlike last weeks recipe it was marvelous. The only change I would make would be to add some sprinkles of Turbinado sugar on the crust after the egg wash.

          That's a little over 3 qts of liquid so I think that you would need at least a 6 qt crock pot. I would fry the bacon in a large stock pot and then start adding ingredients and skip the slow cooker but that's just me .

          Wife made me a mango pie last year for my birthday. Several chatters asked for the recipe.


          For Crust:
          2 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
          3 tablespoons confectioners' sugar
          1 teaspoon salt
          1 teaspoon lemon zest
          1 stick butter, chilled
          1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening, chilled
          1/3 to 1/2 cup ice cold water

          For Filling:
          5 cups (4 or 5 large) mangoes peeled and cut into 1/2-inch to 3/4-inch slices
          1/2 cup granulated sugar
          2 teaspoons cinnamon powder
          2 tablespoons flour
          1 teaspoon lemon zest
          2 teaspoons lemon or lime juice


          For Crust:
          Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
          Prepare crust by mixing together flour, sugar, salt and lemon zest. Cut butter and shortening into small chunks and add to the dry ingredients. Mix until the dough holds together in small crumbs. Sprinkle ice water over mixture and mix until the mixture holds together in balls and press together. Divide the dough into 2 equal parts. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Roll out half dough and fit into 9-inch deep-dish pie pan. Weigh down the crust with rice, dry beans, another pie, dish, or if you are fancy your pie weights and bake bottom crust until golden brown.

          My trick for pie crusts: put all the ingredients in the freezer for 20 minutes before making so they are very cold. Also weighing down the crust during the initial bake prevents air bubbles.

          For Filling:
          Mix mango slices, sugar, cinnamon, flour, zest and lemon or lime juice and pour into baked crust. Mixture should be moist but not wet. Roll out the other half of dough and fit over the pie. Crimp edges. Bake pie 45 to 50 minutes until crust is golden and filling is tender when fork is inserted.

          For the mangos, get ripe but firm fruit. If they are too ripe the pie will turn to liquid.

          I can't believe people actually use Manwich when sloppy joes are so easy to make.

            My Mom always made her own sauce and I've since started...basically mixing up ketchup, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, BBQ, maybe some Heinz 57...basically mixing it to taste. We'll also add a little vinegar for bite. And add onions to the meat as it browns.
