I'm looking at a recipe for Pastry Cream that calls for half and half which I don't have. But I DO have cream and whole milk. Can I make my own half and half or should I find a new recipe that calls for either cream or whole milk?

thanks

Frozen Yogurt Re-Do

I agree, the cantaloupe was very ripe and juicy and so it will be an icy mixture. I was just wondering if it'd be worthwhile to thaw, add a little vodka, re-freeze and then have it more readily available. Although you'd think I could have the patience to wait 30 min for it to thaw just a little!

Frozen Yogurt Re-Do

I made Cantaloupe Frozen Yogurt over the weekend, (http://almostbourdain.blogspot.com/20...) substituted a little honey for the sugar. The flavor is great but I ended up freezing MOST of it and now it's rock-hard. I'm assuming it's because of the liquid in the cantaloupe puree (because I strained my yogurt well) with the fact that I didn't add any alcohol to keep it softer.

Now, can I thaw the very frozen yogurt in the refrigerator and RE-freeze in the ice cream maker? Has anyone done this?

Thanks in advance,
Jill

Looking for recipe for Indian Hot Sauce/Paste

Thank you for the clarification. Once bookwormchef gave me the correct spelling and I was able to google it I realized how far away I am from the pachadi I tasted 20 yrs ago! It was red, tangy and very hot is all I remember. Looks like I'm gonna have some fun with condiments!

Looking for recipe for Indian Hot Sauce/Paste

Years ago I had a friend whose parents were from India (southernish, I remember him telling me they spoke Telugu) and he introduced me to a tasty breakfast combination of rice, yogurt, banana, and some sort of hot and tangy stuff, that's more like a paste than a sauce. He called it something like "putchity"... That's phonetic. No idea how it would be spelled. Does anyone know what this mystery paste is? Does anyone have the recipe?

Thanks in advance,
Jill
