You can use anything relatively sharp to score a cucumber. However, the handiest tools are a fork, for thin lines; a knife, for thicker lines and precise shapes; and a vegetable peeler, for the thickest lines. Scoring a cucumber with a fork adds a decorative edge, but doesn’t remove enough skin to alter the taste. Scoring the cucumber with a knife or peeler tends to remove enough skin to slightly lessen the bitter flavor of the peel in the overall dish. Whatever you use, scoring involves cutting lightly into the cucumber and dragging the cutting tool across the skin.

Ever have one of those days where you want a special treat but you just don’t want to leave the house? Well, my lazy state of mind is how this post comes to you today.
While foraging through the refrigerator this afternoon, I happened upon the very last of my carrot comfiture. Confiture being the French word for a confection or preserve of fruit. Personally I like it because it’s a fancy pants word for jam which looked better on the label.
Anyhow, this was part of my first at home canning experience embarked upon just before Christmas as gifts for friends and family.
Now, I know what you’re thinking: carrots + jam = a’roo?? But something happens while cooking which magically shifts the flavor of carrots into a citrusy, light spread resembling marmalade. Mind you, the addition of a small amount of almonds and brandy doesn’t hurt either. “Damn tasty” is how I describe it.
So if you have the inclination and love a wonderful, fresh, sweet spread for toast and other delights, you can check out Laura Calder of French Food at Home’s original Carrot Confiture recipe over at the food network.
if you do feel inspired to make this recipe, my only two comments would be that
It will yield around 5- 250mL jars
I think the directions assume you’ve made jam before as it tells you to cook until it has a “jammy” consistency-whatever that means. For me, cooking around 20 minutes did the trick.
Enjoy your weekend and if you have the chance, take a couple minutes to be lazy and enjoy the simple pleasures you find hiding in your fridge.
A few years ago, my husband and I were in Ft. Smith, Arkansas, for the day where we lunched at Lewis' Restaurant, 5901 Hwy. 71 South, Ft. Smith, AR.; telephone number 479-646-4309.
I choose a "pancake batter coated deep fried corn on the cob" as a side dish. It was positively delicious. I have unsuccessfully searched the internet for a comparable recipe until now October 22, 2010, and I think that I found a comparable recipe at: http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/317/

"This is the most aromatic and fragrant of all Indian spice blends. Used throughout North India in all types of dishes — from appetizers and soups to yogurt salad and main courses — this blend is indispensable to Moghul and North Indian cooking. It is widely available, but my homemade version is more fragrant and, of course, fresher."

LADIWOLF59 sparkmailed this recipe as I wasn't impressed with the plain Fava Bean recipe that I had tried.
Original recipe calls for oven at 350º F. This burnt the beans within the first 30 minutes. If I ever try this again, lower oven to 275º F.
