DID YOU KNOW?

Malt is produced by steeping barley (or other grain) in water until it germinates and then roasting and crushing it in a mill. It is used in brewing and distilling, and in malted milk drinks. Malt has a high protein and carbohydrate content. Any cereal grain (rye, wheat, rice, corn, etc)  may be used to produce malt, but barley is by far the most frequently used. Malt for malted milk powder uses both barley and wheat.

A FOOD LIFE

"There are those who say that a life devoted to food -- cooking it, eating it, writing about it, even dreaming about it -- is a frivolous life, an indulgent life.  I would disagree.  If we do not care what we eat, we do not care for ourselves, and if we do not care for ourselves, how can we care for others?"
Fictional cookery writer Hilary Small, in episode 6, series 2 of 'Pie In the Sky'

DID YOU KNOW?

Freezer burn does not make food unsafe, merely dry in spots. It appears as grayish-brown leathery spots and is caused by air reaching the surface of the food. Cut freezer-burned portions away either before or after cooking the food. Heavily freezer-burned foods may have to be discarded for quality reasons.

DID YOU KNOW?

POWDERED MILK
Marco Polo reported in the late 13th century that the nomadic Tartars would boil mare's milk, skimming the cream from the top, and then expose the milk to the hot sun until it dried. When it was to be used, they would add water, and while riding their horse, the mixture would be violently shaken, producing a thick porridge for dinner.
