Cut fillets into serving size portions, dip them in egg, roll them in flour, and fry them in olive oil until browned, turning once. Catfish is thick, and might not be done through at this point, so line a pan with foil, put the browned fish in it, and cover it with more foil (or if you don't mind the clean up, put it in a covered casserole). Put it in the oven at 300°F/ 150°C. for about 20 minutes. If you have flour leftover, put egg in it, form it into patties, and fry it up for mock hush puppies

Linda's Apple Pie

| top

7/10 | 08/10/2001 | takes 45 mins, makes 1 pie

400-500 g Almond flour
100 g Butter
1 Egg
1 tsp Water
0.3 cup honey
a pinch Salt
7 medium Apples
0.3 cup Honey
2 tbsp Butter
2 tsp Cinammon
150 g each of Walnuts, Almond & Raisins
1 Lemon, juiced
1 tsp Water
a dash Vanilla
1-2 finely sliced Apples
50 g chopped Walnuts
50 g sliced blanched almonds
Thin Coconut Slices
a pinch Cinammon

Dough: Blend 'A' in a bowl and add more almond flour if necessary until the dough is dry enough and not sticky to work with. Place dough in fridge or freezer for approx. 15 min - 1/2 hour. Filling: Peel and core apples. Cut in slices. Set 'B' in a heavy duty pot and cook approx.. 10 minutes until apples are a bit soft and filling is not wet. Pat dough into round pie form. Add filling. Decorate filling with the uncooked apples on top to form a round design. Bake in slow oven 150-160°C/ 305-320°F for approx. 30-40 minutes. Keep your eye on oven as the dough can burn. The edges can be covered with aluminum foil to avoid this. Approximately 5 minutes before the pie is ready, decorate with walnuts, almonds, coconut slices and cinnamon. Return to oven until nicely brown.

Recipe taken from www.scdiet.org. Takes quite a while to do, and might be better without the whole almonds in B.


Candied Cinnamon Pecans

| top

26/05/2003 | takes 30 mins, makes 2.3 cups

2.3 cups Pecan Nuts 2.00
0.5 cup Honey .20
0.25 cup Date Sugar or Fructose .15
2 tsp Cinammon .10
1 pinch Ground Cloves & Nutmeg .05

1.09 per cup.

Preheat oven to 350°F/ 180°C. Place pecans on cookie sheet or baking pan and lightly toast - about 6-7 minutes, depending on your oven. Nuts are done when you can smell a nutty, toasted scent. Remove pecans from oven and pour honey over them. Stir to coat nuts evenly, and return to oven. Mix date sugar or fructose and spices in a large bowl. Pecans are ready to be removed from the oven when all the honey is warm and coating them. Pour the hot pecans into the large bowl of spiced date sugar. Toss well until the pecans are thoroughly coated with the mixture. Spread on a cookie sheet in a single layer and allow to "set." Enjoy warm or at room temperature.

Note: Walnuts, almonds, cashews, hazlenuts and even peanuts are also delicious when prepared in this way!

Dan's Pancakes

| top

8/10 | 04 September 2002 | takes 20 mins, makes 10-16 pancakes

2 Ripe Bananas
2 Eggs
0.25 cup Almond Flour
0.125 tsp Baking Soda

Blend 'A' until smooth. Use large frying pan heated to medium. Put some butter in pan to prevent sticking and pour mix into pan to thinly cover about half of the pan. Shake pan to evenly spread mix. Flip cooked pancake into other half of pan. After the first pancake is done, turn the heat down a little to prevent burning. Always use more butter before each batch - just enough to cover pan.

Recipe taken from SCDiet.org. Goes well with Honey Butter Syrup or any of the other syrup recipes. The pancakes don't flip very well but you ought to be able to do it if they're cooked properly.

Pancakes (III)

| top

01 September 2002 | takes 20 mins,

0.75 cup Almond Flour
1 Egg
0.25 tsp Baking Soda
0.3 cup Yogurt
1 tbsp Melted Butter

Blend 'A' until smooth. Add a little more yogurt or a little water if it is too stiff. Add a little more flour if it is too thin. The batter should be fairly thick - should drop in blobs when spooned onto the hot griddle. (If too thin it is hard to turn them.) Also works great as waffles - add 2 more (total of 3) tbsp melted butter and cook in waffle iron.

2.99 per pizza.

Granola Chews

| top

8.5/10 | 08/10/2001 | takes 45 mins, makes 16 chews

0.3 cup Butter
0.5 cup Honey
0.5 cup Raisins
0.5 cup Unsweetened dessicated Coconut
1 cup Coarsely chopped Nuts (Almonds, Pecans, Walnuts)
0.5 tsp Salt
0.5 tsp Baking powder

Stir A in a pan over a low heat until melted & blended. Remove from heat and mix in B. Spread mixture in a 20cm/ 8" baking tin; Spread thinner in the centre. Bake at 350°F/ 180°C for about 15-20 mins until golden brown and setting. Turn down heat to 300°F/150°C. Tap out air bubbles, cook until chestnut brown & set. Cool, cut into squares.

The addition of baking soda makes the mixture bubble and rise while being heated. I've found that the air bubbles help the mixture to cook evenly. Be careful not to burn the chews. Adapted from Elaine Gottchall's Breaking the Vicious cycle, IBSN: 0-9692768-1-8

0.5 cup Melted Butter .25
0.75 cup Honey .80
1 Egg .12
0.5 tsp Baking Soda .01
a pinch Salt .01

Cookie dough should be wet and sticky. Make into large 1 tsp-ish sized blobs and flatten with a wet hand or spoon. Cook slow and long to get crunchy but not too long - keep checking them; make sure you do NOT overcook them. Modified from Elaine Gottchall's Breaking the Vicious cycle, IBSN: 0-9692768-1-8

Honey-Almond Biscotti

| top

8.5/10 | 20/07/2001 | takes 45 mins, makes 16-18 biscotti

0.5 cup Butter, softened
0.75 cup Honey
2 medium Eggs
1 tsp Vanilla
3.5 cups Almond flour
2 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Baking soda
0.5 tsp Ground Ginger, Allspice, Nutmeg & Salt
1 cup Sliced almonds
0.75 cup Rasins

Preheat oven to 175°C/ 325°F. In a large bowl, beat A until light and fluffy. In a medium bowl, mix together B until well distributed. Mix A & B until well blended. Gather dough into a ball; cut in half. On a greased cookie sheet, shape each half of dough into a 10-by-3-by1-inch log. Bake for around 20. min. or until lightly browned and slightly firm. Remove from oven; cool 5 min. Move logs to a cutting surface. Reduce oven temp. to 133°C/ 275°F Cut each log into 1/2 inch strips; return to baking sheet, arranging slices cut side up. Bake for about 20 minutes, turning, until crisp throughout. Cool completely on wire racks. Store in tightly covered container.

I usually place what I'm baking on two cookie sheets so things don't brown too fast. If the top browns too fast, swap sheets over in the over or cover it with a sheet of foil. The low oven temp. more dries them out than cooks them-so they get crunchy. Cook long and slow for best results.

Chicken Croquettes

| top

7/10 | 06/09/2000 | takes 35-40 min, makes 5-8 patties.

2 cups cooked, boneless, trimmed Chicken, Pork or Turkey
2-3 tbsp Almond Flour
1 Egg
1 small Onion
Salt, Pepper, Herbs
2-3 tbsp Butter for frying

Blend all ingredients until smooth. Using your hands, shape the mixture into burgers, about the size of your palm. It should be stiff enough to shape, if not add more almond flour, a little at a time until it can be handled easily. Fry in butter over a medium heat, turning, until golden brown both sides.

Crunchy Almond Chicken

| top

8/10 | 23/11/2000 | takes 1 hr,

2-3 lbs Chicken, skinless, boneless & trimmed
1 cup Almond Flour
1 clove Garlic
0.25 tsp Ground Ginger
1 tsp Salt
1 tsp Paprika
0.25 tsp Ground Cumin
0.25 tsp Pepper
0.3 cup Butter

Cut chicken into small McNugget sized pieces. Mix almonds, garlic, ginger, salt, paprika, cumin and pepper. Dip chicken pieces into butter; roll in almond mixture. Place chicken in ungreased baking pan. Cook uncovered in 375°F/ 190°C oven until thickest pieces are done, 45 to 60 minutes.

Takes too long. I think these need to be battered. Maybe use more butter and an egg and blend the mixture together?
