I scream, You scream, We all scream for Coffee Maker made Lingonberry Ice-cream!

Usually I’m not that fond of lingonberries, except together with meatballs. Now that’s a perfect match! But I never eat lingon in or with much else.

Until now! Lingonberry ice-cream is delicious!

Unfortunately I couldn’t get hold of any fresh lingonberries. Otherwise I would have coffee maker cooked my own lingonberry jam as well.

cooking with your coffee maker

Time

6 hours

Ingredients

  • 2,5 dl cream
  • 2-3 egg yolks (the yolks I had was pretty small so I used 3)
  • 3/4 dl sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla sugar
  • 1-1,5 dl lingonberries (not sure of this word but I used “preserved raw” ones or “rårörda” like we say in Sweden)
  • A couple of meringues
  • Basil leaves (well that was the only green “piff” I had so I used that)

Instructions

Start your coffee maker. Pour cream in the coffee maker can and heat it for almost an hour, it must get really warm. Give it a good whip every now and then, you know how easily cream burn.

Meanwhile mix eggs, sugar and vanilla together so it get’s fluffy. Pour the egg fluff with the warm cream in the can and put it back on the heater. Now this mixture shall coffee maker cook for a while until it thickens a bit, about 45 minutes. Don’t forget to stir. Turn off your coffee maker.

Before you add lingonberries and meringues just let it cool for a while. Thereafter add lingonberries and meringues into the mixture and pour the ice-cream into forms. Place them in your freezer, stir every 30 minutes, until they get a nice ice-creamy consistency.

Eat and enjoy!

Coffee maker chef’s little helper. Or probably more like coffee maker chef’s little “stjälper” (Swedish word for not helping).

I get many questions about if it’s tricky to clean up after cooking. Answer: Not at all.

How to cook Testicle Tacos with your coffee maker

The “Fredagsmys” (the Cosy Friday) is an important, very swedish, thing. And for some reason tacos is the thing we eat on the Fredagsmys while we cuddle up in our pajamas in the sofas in front of Let’s Dance or Swedish Idol and shows like that. There is even a song about the Fredagsmys that’s annoyingly catchy.

Usually the protein in tacos are minced beef or/and pork but I think it’s important to use as much of the animal as possible (as long as we eat meat it’s stupid not to) so that’s why I used testicles from sheep this time. And also because the testicles looked very sweet and funny when I saw them laying there in the meat counter.

how to cook food in a coffee maker

Time

1.5 hours

Ingredients

  • Sheep testicles (I used 2 testis)
  • Taco Seasoning
  • Oil
  • Taco Shells
  • Cucumber
  • Red onion
  • Paprika
  • Corn
  • Grated cheese
  • Jalapeño
  • Salad
  • Tomato
  • Guacamole (Dan made this, but I guessed he used avocados, garlic, creme fraiche and some lime)
  • Salsa
  • And another stuff that you prefer in your tacos

Instructions

I knew neither how testicle should taste, how it should look and definately not how it’s supposed to be cooked. But somehow they turned out great!

At first you have to rinse and scale the testicles (see clip below). Divide them into slightly smaller pieces. Or well, that depends of how well hung the sheep were, maybe you don’t need to do this. But one of the testis I bought was freaking huge.

Add the pieces of testies in the coffee can, pour water into the brewer and start the coffee maker. Coffee maker cook for so-so 20 minutes. Chop up all the accessories in the meantime and prepare the guacamole.

When the testies become completely cooked, i.e. (what I think is) more grayish and spongy and less like a jelly fish, drain and rinse the disgusting stuff of from the balls. It sticks a lot of old testicular mucus which I don’t think should be there. Chop up the testies so it will become like testicular mince. Season with taco seasoning. Of course.

Heat the oil directly on the coffee maker plate and add the taco testicular mince. Coffee maker fry until the minced testies get a nice golden color. Turn off the coffee maker.

Serve the testies with whatever you want inside your testicle taco and let the Fredagsmys begin!

It’s impossible to not fall in love with these!

I didn’t think a testicle would have this consistency. Like a mix between chicken fillet and jelly fish.

I like to have many balls in the air.

And what did it taste like? Great! I think maybe like a mix between chicken and quorn with a hint of sweaty balls. Maybe I just imagined the last part.

OK! Here’s how you rinse and scale the testies.

Doesn’t it look like a vagina that’s popping out?

Ha! This is how it looks like right now on GP.se (one of Sweden’s largest newspaper).

Yup. I’m the one who’s juggling with the testicles.

The coffee maker chef that loves balloons and cats

Yes, that what this article in GP (Sweden’s second largest morning paper) says! And it’s about why I started to cook food in my coffee maker, my “day job” as a balloon artist and the blog about our cat Gucci that started the Cats wearing tights trend.

How to cook potato soup with leeks on your coffee maker

This soup might not seem to be super tasty, but actually it is one of the yummiest recipes I’ve made. After our book was released 2011 I was invited to Gothenburg book fair to cook one of the recipes from the book in my coffee maker. At the end of the day some people got to try the soup and they said that it definitely was the best food on the whole fair.

Maybe it was shitty food on the fair, but I choose to believe that it simply is a great soup. Dan made this soup for me on our first date. I thought when he said that he was going to make a soup for me that it was kind of a dull thing, but I quickly changed my mind after I ate it.

how to cook food with your coffee maker

Time

5 hours

Ingredients

  • 4-5 potatoes
  • 1 carrot
  • 1 handful of leeks
  • 1 piece of vegetable stock
  • Rosemary
  • Tarragon
  • Chervil
  • 3 tbsp crème fraîche
  • ½ dl milk
  • Parsley
  • Pepper
  • Salt

Instructions

Peel and quarter the potatoes and the carrot. Chop the leek. Add this into the can, a stock cube into the filter thingy and water in the brewer. Start the coffee maker. The water should just cover the ingredients. Also add rosemary, tarragon and chervil. Let this stand in a half eternity because it must be really soft and well cooked. About four hours maybe. Then bilge half of the water.

Whip/chop the ingredients with a whisk/spoon (or use a blender if you have it – I didn’t have one at the time). Pour the crème fraîche, parsley and milk. Stir and heat the soup again for another hour. Season with salt and pepper. Turn off the coffeemaker.

Sprinkle some leeks on top and serve.

LCHF – Bolognese sauce with cabbage

At times we have eaten LCHF food for different reasons (I sometimes get quite sick from gluten. Or so I suspect anyway, maybe should check that one out for sure sometime…) and I made this recipe during one of those times. Since you are not “allowed” to eat pasta, I think that cabbage is a great substitute. All though I would prefer cabbage before pasta any day of the week! Ah, like 68% of the time is probably more truthful.

However if you serve a great bolognese sauce you can eat that with whatever other food. I think I have made 4 or 5 different types of bologneses just in my coffee maker (of course lots and lots of other times on the stove). I make a different version every time, don’t have a standard recipe for it. My favorite  is bolognese with mashed potatoes (with lots of butter in it) but today I give you the LCHF friendly recipe. I also think that sweet chili sauce is a great ingredient as well in a yummie bolognese, but that’s not very LCHF.

Aaargh! Now I will stop the gibberish and get to the point.

how to cook food with your coffee maker

 

Time

5 hours

Ingredients

  • Cabbage
  • Butter
  • Flaked Salt
  • 1 plate of minced meat
  • 1/2 yellow onion
  • 1/2 package of passata
  • 1 tbsp of tomato paste
  • 1 handful of mushrooms
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 0.5 dl of whip cream
  • Pepper
  • Salt
  • Cayenne Pepper

Instructions

Put lots of butter in the can and start the coffee maker. Shred the cabbage into long pieces so that it will look like spaghetti. Dan got super tired of this because it took such a long time for me to do it so he took the knife and just chopped up the cabbage completely wrong. This is the reason why he is the photographer and I’m the cook. He simply does not get the beauty of cooking.

Can fry the cabbage in all of the butter for just over an hour. Stir occasionally. Season with a pinch of salt flakes.

Remove the pot from the heat (leave the cabbage in the can) and click some more butter directly on the plate. Add the minced meat, divide it into small pieces and coffee maker fry it so it gets a nice color. Replace the contents of the can now with the minced meat, add chopped onions and garlic and can cook this for about half an hour. When this seems ready, pour down the rest of the ingredients and can cook for 1 1/2 hour. Or until it has become thoroughly warm. Stir once in a while and season. Turn off the coffeemaker.

Serve the bolognese on the cabbage and dig in!
