More use…

I’ve been busy with my life. Too busy to blog about what I’ve used my TM for.
However, here’s a quick recap, not to mention that it is finally time to make more of the TM Vegetable Stock Concentrate.

I’ve used the TM to

  • make pizza dough with the TM recipe – two batches at a time – one pizza is not enough!
  • cook plenty of risotto using the lesser amount of rice in the TM recipe (470g) and an addition of 4 pieces of short cut rindless bacon. This makes a veryfull containerful of risotto
  • make red-bean blended ice – just like at EasyWay but cheaper – frozen red-bean soup, ice, and a bit of water
  • mince beef – my little girl still struggles with eating beef, so I use the TM to turn my beef, whether frozen or thawed, but usually still raw, into pretty much a mooshy paste.
  • mince carrots – this is a winner – I add it to our bologonese sauce (which I do not make in the TM, nor do I use the TM recipe), but after seeing Gary “hide” carrots in the Sausage Rolls with Hidden Vegetables and labouriously grating the carrots, I thought to myself “hey! I have a TM to do that ‘grating’ for me”
  • cream butter and sugar – I’ve used the TM twice to do this now. I’ll have to get my mum’s opinion on whether it’s as good as the KitchenAid, or the Kenwood, but it has been sufficient for my purposes – chocolate chip biscuits and a treacle pudding
  • icecream – I’ve been making lots of the mango icecream recipe that came in a TM newsletter.

    300g mango, frozen in chunks
    300g milk, frozen in cubes
    50 g cream
    50 g sweetened condensed milk

    I changed the recipe somewhat as I’m lazy to always have cream, so I up the condensed milk anywhere from 80g to 100g and then add some fresh milk to compensate for the liquid component – 20g to 40g. YUM!

  • smoothies – frozen blueberries, frozen strawberries, greek yoghurt, a weet-bix, and some milk – my little girl loves them.

I did also encounter my first error. “Err 52”. The user manual did NOT specify what it was, nor how to resolve it. I was quite unhappy, but fortunately, the internet came to my rescue. It was because condensation had dripped down the pins of the TM bowl and into the machine where the pins are inserted. Gave it a day or two to dry, and then I was back in business. Phew!

The other interesting thing to note about using the TM… my little girl thinks it makes the best noise, and when I recently made some pizza dough she would demand it make more noise when it would pause while in “Interval Mode”. Which, of course, it would. Perhaps that could be a new selling point – “entertaining for demanding children”. 😉
