    HI, MARG!!!

    I’ve been trying to figure out WHY anyone would watch Korean shows and ignore the

    GRITS


    shows here in our own country. Oh, well, chalk it up to way too much spicy food that leads to acid reflux which leads to sleep deprivation. Akenta, you’re on!

    It is Easter weekend coming up. Here is a recipe for Hot Cross Buns.


    This recipe is exactly as my mother gave it to me. It does work. Read it carefully at least twice before starting out.

    4 cups sifted flour
    2 teaspoons cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon allspice
    1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
    3/4 cup washed raisins
    1/3 cup chopped peel
    1 1/4 cups water
    1 egg beaten
    1 fresh compressed yeast cake or 1 package dry yeast, granular
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 cup sugar
    2 tablespoons soft shortening (butter, lard, or vegetable)

    Measure sifted flour into large mixing bowl.
    Add spices, raisins and peel. Mix together.
    Make well in centre.
    Heat water. Pour 1/4 cup into measuring cup, let cool to lukewarm (a drop of liquid on inner wrist – if neither hot nor cold, is lukewarm).
    Add yeast. Mix until blended.

    If Granular yeast is used add one teaspoon sugar (extra to the 1/4 cup) and let stand 10 – 15 minutes.

    To lukewarm water in saucepan, add salt, sugar, soft shortening and beaten egg.
    Add dissolved yeast. Mix well.
    Pour liquid into well in flour mixture. Stir until liquid disappears.
    Remove spoon and with hand mix dough in bowl using swinging rotary motion, gradually forming dough into smooth ball.
    Knead in bowl for 2 minutes.
    Brush top with melted shortening.
    Cover bowl with slightly dampened towel, then place dry towel over top.
    Allow dough to rise at warm room temperature (75-80° F) for 2 hours. Dough should be doubled in bulk when risen. (Keep away from draughts. Do not set bowl on radiator or in a hot place.)
    When risen punch down, using fist.
    Remove dough to lightly floured bake board.
    Form into ball, cover with towel. Let stand 10 minutes.
    Grease thoroughly two 9 × 9 × 2 inch cake tins, or two bake sheets.
    With sharp, greased knife, cut ball of dough in half.
    Form each half into a cylinder.
    Cut each cylinder into 9 uniform pieces.
    Form each piece into a smooth ball.
    Flatten slightly with palm of hand.
    Arrange nine buns in each tin, or, if desired, put buns about 2 inches apart on 2 greased bake sheets.
    Cover and let rise until double in bulk.

    About 20 minutes before buns are ready to bake, heat oven to 375° F (moderately hot oven).
    Just before baking cut a cross on surface, a shallow cut, with “very sharp” greased knife.
    Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
    When buns have baked for 15 minutes, brush with glaze.

    (2 tablespoons sugar mixed with 2 tablespoons milk or water.)

    Return quickly to oven and finish baking.
    When baked, glaze again and place on racks to cool.
    If desired, buns may be decorated with crosses of plain white frosting when cool.

    For frosting I mix 1 cup icing sugar with enough milk to make spreading consistency. If not enough, whip up a little more.

    Dough Crosses for Hot Cross Buns

    Combine

    1/2 cup flour
    3 tablespoons shortening
    3/4 teaspoon sugar
    Pinch of salt.

    Stir in enough water to make a moderately soft dough that can be pushed through a decorating tube.
    When buns are half risen on cookie sheets, brush tops with beaten egg white and water, then apply crosses of dough with decorating tube.

    Notes from me:

    Sift at least 5 1/2 cups of flour into a separate bowl before measuring into mixing bowl so you have a bit of a stock pile for the bake board and/or dough crosses.
    1 envelope of dry yeast is 2 1/4 teaspoons.
    Plump the washed raisins by pouring hot water over them and let them stand for 5 minutes. Drain the water off, and dry them by placing them on paper towels then measure the 3/4 cup.

    There’s Brownies over on “The Wizard of Id,”too.

    An Easter joke:

    A farmer decided to solve his rabbit problem by pouring boiling water down their hole.

    It didn’t work.

    All he succeeded in doing was making hot, cross, bunnies.

    not sure if this will work since gocomics is acting up this morning (try #7)

    good morning and happy thursday locos. We’re winding down the tabby celebration month. Today is day 3 of Passover and Maundy Thursday to help get ready for Easter.

    Good morning all!

    JFri, we don’t get Korean programs out this way.

    Akenta, I’ve never heard it called Maundy Thursday before.

    JFri , great shows like your “Amazing Race” and the Viet Nam episode? Yeah! You shouldn’t knock the Korean dramas. The ones I watch are much better than a lot of crap we show here, at least they aren’t reality shows!

    johnny, if you had NetFlix you could access Korean movies and programs.

    You never heard “Maundy Thursday”? Interesting. That’s always what we have called it.

    Akenta, I have seen others say they are having problems accessing gocomics. So far, so good for me. Of course, I just got here.

    I heard rumors to the effect Robins have been seen around here. I saw my first one in my backyard today!

    johnny, I find the action, scenery, music,swordsmanship, acting, etc. to be very well done! I watch the historical ones and they are quite good.
