I can appreciate that you need to buy larger pieces of meat to save money, but with only 2 of us at home, and a small freezer, this is not practical.
What do you reckon is the optimum weight of joint to buy for 2 people and still get value (without over filling the tiny freezer).
How do I adjust cooking times and temperatures for these smaller sized joints, is ther a rule of thumb ?
Love the new show, by the way, and the beef was the tenderest I have ever eaten, and we loved the stir fry with the shredded beef. smile

I answered on your other post about the pork shoulder.

Perhaps you can save in other ways.  For instance, I can usually get 3 portions out of one NY strip steak or pork chop or one chicken breast if I slice or chop it up for soup, chicken pot pie, Thai beef salad, fajitas, Asian noodle dishes, etc.

Cheaper take-out and restaurant options are usually not going to compare in quality to the ingredients you put in to homemade food, so even if you spend a little more for smaller cuts, you'll be getting more value for the money.

Hi guys...

First, let me say how much I LOVE Jamie and all he does for kids all around the world.  His Food Revolution is amazing.  Now for my question...when will Jamie's "Save With Jamie" be available in the states...?

Thanks,

Welcome to the forum acglopes07 smile

There are loads of recipes on the Internet that tell you how to make mascarpone cheese ,( I wish I'd thought of looking this up before today ) so thank you for your post. Making home made mascapone seems easy to do and so I will give this a try next time I need some !
This is the first one of a long list that I found on the Internet .

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi, my daughter has just gone off to university and has bought loads of fruit and frozen it so it doesn't go off. However she doesn't have much knowledge of cooking (despite my endless offers to teach her) and intends to make smoothies which is great. However I had to tell her that her hand blender will not cope with frozen fruit!
Please can you tell me, would any liquidiser cope with frozen fruit or will the blades or motor get ruined? Thanks

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi Jamie, been a fan for many years, love that most of your recipes easily convert to gluten free, as I'm coeliac. Currently watching your new show, " Save with Jamie", you did a segment about not throwing out fruit, and gave several hint to freezing fruit, you didn't mention critrus fruits, like oranges and manderines, is it ossible to freeze these. thanks for all the years of pleasure you have given me.

Re: Ask me a cooking question

Hi .. Squid, I'm interested in the way you save calamari as a main dish, not a salad, I have an unusual way of domestic saving, or stewing calamari, which in fact have no taste of fish or squid but the taste and smell are the most excellent, I'm not a chef, it is my wish was simple but conditions are not allowed, so I'm interested in how you store ...... This is a Google translator, so sorry to mistakes .....

I can't get things crispy when I roast them, like chicken, or potatoes. I think it's because my oven is electric, but even when I use the old, heating up the fat in the oven and then putting the spuds in- trick I can't seem to get them to go crispy. My friends suggested I cheat and do roast spuds in the deep fryer but it's not the healthiest option. Everything I roast ends up looking poached.

hmm
