Misc. Sous Vide|
This page will be about the non meat related Sous Vide aspects of cooking, like vegetables and desserts.
All though Sous Vide is excellent for cooking meat, it is also great for other things, as we will be exploring here.
Notes and pictures:
Dolche De Leche
Sous Vide in a beer cooler:
Salmon Mi cuit
Creme brulee 4 pers.
Before serving, sprinkle the creme with cane sugar and burn with a butane burner until desired level of caramelization is acquired.
creme brulee, Bon appetit.
Cane sugar for sprinkles
5 dl whipping cream
4 big egg yolks
70 g white sugar sukker
1 vanilla bean
Lovely creme brulee. Rich and creamy.
Dolche De Leche
It is really easy to make dolche de leche in a waterbath. Just put your can of sweetened condensed milk in the waterbath and set the temperature for 82 degrees. Wait 8 hours, let the can cool down. Thats it.
Realy creamy and full caramel. By all accounts a succes in my book.
Egg Sous Vide
After reading about this beeing called the perfect egg, I just had to try it out for myself.
The 2 eggs got served with a piece if rye with butter, chives and salt.
The procedure is really simple. Take the raw egg and submerge in the waterbath, wait 45 minutes. That is it.
The yolk got really good, but the egg white did not meet my expectations at all. Overall I think this is not worth the effort. The old fashioned way of boiling the egg works much better for me.
Peeled potatoes 800 g.
The potatoes got peeled, cut into small pieces and washed in cold water. In the bag together with the potaotes i added 1 tsp of thyme and i tsp of salt. Vacuum seal and submerged in the watherbath.
1 hour and 30 min
Really good potatoes. cooked without being mealy. In general a nice structure. I have done this several times by now.
Asparaguses was put in the bag with a little water and salt.
Spot on, not overcooked or blane.
