Do you need to buy all the nifty kitchen appliance you are eyeing, even with ongoing sales? Our answer; no, you don’t. Instead of buying every machine that can fit your kitchen, save money, time and space by investing in a bread machine. Just make sure it is the best on the market? Wondering why we are insisting on a bread machine though your high salary working as one of the top St Catharines Personal Injury Lawyers can afford you anything you want?
Well, take a look at all the bread machine can do effortlessly and perfectly.
- Crafting vegetable and fruit butter
Thanks to the bread machine’s enclosed design and the slow but steady cooking/ heat setting, you can use it to make your apple butter now that you have grandma’s recipe. All you have to do is to throw in your chopped apples, nutmeg, sugar, cloves, add some water and apple cider vinegar. Once you have all your ingredients, mix them up, cover the bread machine and let it cook on low heat for an hour.
Once cooked and cooled, run the mixture through a food processor or food mill to make it smooth. You can then pour the resultant soup into the bread machine and let it cook for 1.5 hours to get that thick consistency.
- Bake a casserole
You can free up the oven by baking your casserole in the bread machine. For this purpose, you’ll have to remove the paddles then grease the interior of the bread machine lightly. Add all your ingredients then layer them as you’d like. Once you have every ingredient in the bucket, program it to bake for about 45 minutes.
- Bake cake
With a bread machine, you can whip up a simple but a delicious cake. All you have to do is to put all your ingredients (butter) in the bread machine’s bucket. Once in, set the bread machine’s crust setting to either medium or regular. The heat setting depends on the type of bread maker as there are some with a cake menu setting.
Other than butter, you can also make jams and marmalades using a bread machine. The good thing about this is that most bread makers come with a jam menu setting, so, don’t overlook the machine’s functionality. Jam is easy to prepare. All you need is the right ingredients depending on your preference. You can make jams with or without pectin in under two hours.
This may sound like one of those unorthodox things to do but, you can make rice using a bread machine. Instead of buying a rice maker or cooking on a stovetop, use the bread machine instead. The best part is that you won’t have to monitor the rice’s cooking progress every five minutes. Just put salt, water, and rice in the bucket, then set to bake for an hour. Though it takes longer than using a stove top, your rice will be just as good, and you could be prepping your stew.
You can also prepare meatloaf, hot dips, tomato sauce, and scrambled eggs for breakfast.
