Knives and Fire Internship Day 14

Day 14

Eggplant. Again. I'm getting rather good - I'm making the slices the right size, and the frying went better - faster and more controlled. And I used two trays. Then I helped make roasted vegetables (cut into smallish pieces, toss in oil, salt and pepper and bake. Make sure not to burn, which is what happened to the first batch (not my watch.)

Then I helped make granola - I took already roasted oats, and mixed them with cashews and pumpkin seeds that I roasted, plus oil, maple syrup, golden raisins (no dried cherries or cranberries, unfortunately) and some cinnamon sugar, and then baked it for about ten minutes. Very yummy. (To make the oats, mix steel-cut oats with oil and bake until brown. Careful not to overcook.)


I didn't know steel-cut oats could roast like that! I'd assumed they'd turn into toothshattering pebbles. *makes a note to try this*
