Duck LOrange

by Jaqui In reply to insane mutterings

( me own recipe, which isn't greasy )

<br />
Ingredients:<br />
1 whole duck ( thawed for cooking )<br />
2 cups rice ( mixed wild and long grain white and brown, ratio not important )<br />
1 cup frozen mixed veggies
1 can frozen orange juice concentrate ( thawed )<br />
1/4 cup demmerara sugar<br />
1 tsp powdered mustard

<br />

equipment:<br />
rectanglar cake pan<br />
wire rack to fit pan ( cooling rack for cakes )<br />
stainless steel bowl<br />
mixing spoon.<br />
Directions:<br />
pre-heat oven to 325 degrees F<br />
make sure rack is set for duck to be in center of oven<br />
mix rice and veggies together in bowl<br />
stuff into body cavity of duck
place duck on wire rack and into pan.
put into oven.<br />
rinse bowl and spoon.<br />
put 1/4 cup orange juice concentrate into bowl.
<br />

make rest of concentrate into juice, pour over duck
put duck back into oven.<br />
add sugar and mustard powder to bowl.
mix until well blended with concentrated orange juice.
place into fridge.

every 15 to 20 minutes, spoon liquid from pan over duck,
make sure it gets into body cavity where rice is.

after 3 hours:
take bowl from fridge and duck from oven.
baste duck with liquid from pan
pour paste from bowl over duck.
put back into oven.
1/2 hour later, remove from oven and serve.

this recipe kills the normal greasyness of duck,
yet enhances the flavour with the orange juice.

the last step glazes the duck.

Alfredo Sauce<br />
<br />
1 liter whipping cream ( not pre whipped at all )<br />
1/4 pound butter.<br />
1 bulb fresh garlic ( the whole bulb, not just single piece )<br />
1 pound fresh, shredded parmesan cheese<br />
<br />
double boiler pot ( if will ing to work with lwer heat any sauce pan will do )<br />
melt the butter in pot<br />
mince the garlic and put into the butter<br />
slowly add 1/4 the parmesan, waiting until it has melted.<br />
add the whipping cream.<br />
bring to a boil, stirring frquently.<br />
turn heat down, add rest of parmesan.<br />
stir frequently until the cheese has completely blended and sauce reaches a desired thickness.<br />
<br />
pour over your preffered pasta and serve.<br />
<br />
this will keep in either refrigerator or freezer.<br />
if refrigerated, to use just drain from pasta 95% of water and toss sauce into pot, stir until pasta is coated.<br />
<br />
if frozen, thaw under running COLD water, then use as if refrigerated.<br />

What part of Canada do you live in where they sell cream by the liter but everything else is in English units? Must be terribly confusing! Does your bathroom scale read in stones? ^_^

ha, that's just me.<br />
I actually think in imperial not metric.<br />
<br />
I learned cooking using imperial measurements, so those are what I use.<br />
1 litre  is sold instead of 1 quart, same size container. <br />

NEW TREAT ITEM!!!!

by askmd1 In reply to NEW TREAT ITEM!!!!

Why cover them with chocolate. They have a great nutty flavor when eaten alive. Also, with the number of people that don't know they are diabetic, it would bre a real diservice.

NEW TREAT ITEM!!!!

by Jaqui In reply to NEW TREAT ITEM!!!!

use diabetic chocolate.<br />
the chocolate keeps them in the packaging for shipping purposes.<br />
since the little pests can squeeze through extremely small spaces,<br />
the chocolate contains them.<br />

certificate authorities

by Jaqui In reply to insane mutterings

While auditing an application development security email list I noticed something about all the CAs being included as "trusted"<br />
these include companies like Verisign and thier subsidiary Thawte.<br />
<br />
to get a good rating on a certificate, it boils down to how much you are willing to pay for the certificate and rating.<br />
the more you pay, the better they say you are.<br />
<br />
this is industry wide, not just a few vendors.<br />
<br />
looking at it, I came to the conclusion that as long as there is no
standardisation in requirements, with an oversight group that can
penalise offending CAs there is no way to actually have a single CA
that can truly fit into the TRUSTED category.<br />
<br />
right now it is up to the individual CAs ( private corporations out to
make money ) to decide what is required for any specific rating.<br />
<br />
it is my position that there needs to be control of this with a group
like I.S.O., but that, because of the sensative nature of most secured
data being transmitted, the oversight group needs to be able to
unilaterally revoke any CA's status if they are found to not be
following the standard.<br />
<br />
that being said, Verisign and Thawte, are among the more expensive, and
they do appear to investigate a company prior to issuing a certificate
to enable ssl. this is not the case with some of thier competitors, who
for far less money will issue a certificate in far less time, yet the
certificate will have the company rated the same as Verisign / Thawte.<br />
<br />
while I am more inclined to actually trust Verisign and Thawte issued
certificates, and definately feel better about the company so secured,
in the end, that certificate was bought, not earned. and the
certificate issuer is 100% focussed on issuing certificates to make
money.<br />
<br />
this whole discourse prompted by the webex posting in the discussions area.<br />

certificate authorities

by Raven2 In reply to certificate authorities

<p>I have notice the same thing.  The E-Trust service is the same way.  Let us found a company, park it in a nice low tax location, come up with a "service" that everyone "has to have" and start collecting money.  </p>
<p>Oops I think I just discribed goverment.</p>

certificate authorities

by Imnclady In reply to certificate authorities

<p>This is all so true and typical, look around how most, if not all corporations or leading markets conduct business with the mighty buck to get thier mega bucks...they all want a boost up the latter of success. As long as the words, buyer beware is around, it makes it that much harder for any consumer to put blame on promoters, advertisers, or manufacturers of bad products. Before we can make changes, I definitely agree the government needs to amend some tougher laws against anyone involved in shafting the American citizens...hence the words, "ill gotten gains."</p>
<p>Wether it be technology or the FDA...what everyday ordinary people want to know is, Who can we Trust?</p>
