  • Cooking with cranberries leaves a bitter taste despite many attempts

    Cooking with cranberries leaves a bitter taste despite many attempts

    Dear Barbara: Holidays are just around the corner, and I have been thinking of new and different things I could make. I found a great recipe for a cranberry type sauce. I have tried to make cranberry sauce in the past, but no matter how simple the recipe, mine just has this bitter taste. Adding more sugar does not fix it. Did I miss something? — Evelyn from Acampo

    Can I use self-rising flour in place of regular flour?

    Dear Barbara: My neighbor lady gave me a bag of “self-rising” flour. I was going to make cookies with it, but I wasn’t sure if that would change the taste of the cookies. The recipe didn’t call for self-rising flour. Are they interchangeable? — Jan from Acampo

  • Cornstarch mixed with water helps keep meringue from shrinking

    Cornstarch mixed with water helps keep meringue from shrinking

    Dear Barbara: I enjoy reading your column. My problem is; I can make beautiful meringue for my lemon pie adding a little cream of tartar. To keep from having a “floating island,” I make sure a little of the meringue touches the edge of the pie crust; thereby “attaching” it so there are no naked gaps. I let the meringue bake until lightly browned, then remove it from the oven and place it on a wire rack, but not in a drafty area. After it cools, the meringue shrinks down and looks flat and deflated with little drops of syrup on top. What can I do to retain the nice puffy cloud that I started out with? I have tried letting the lemon filling cool a little before adding meringue and I have tried doing it while the filling is hot. Nothing seems to work.
