Recipes wanted for how to boil water …
To illustrate that there is AWAYS an alternative way of doing things, in my masterclasses I sometimes ask members to give me their ‘recipe for boiling water’. It sometimes may seem there could be only one way but–we always do get a range of recipes and ALWAYS some are better than others.
- Ron Says: Recipe for boiled waterFirst, find a house that has a water spout, either one of your own or a rented one (house I mean). Get you a 3 quart saucepan. Stick it under the water faucet and turn on cold water. Using cold water gives you more flavor and takes a little longer to cook. Put it on the stove, any kind will do, even an open fire if you do not have a stove. Be careful to not overstir cause you might knock out the sides or bottom of your pan. One thing about boiled water is that you dont need any fancy spices or flavorings to make it taste right, just use it right out of the pan. Dont forget to turn on the fire under the pan. Cook long enough to suit yourself. If you like it hotter,let it boil alittle longer. Steam isnt good to use as boiling water, whatever you do, dont get interested in something else and forget your water. If you do it will evaporate into steam and you will have to start all over.
Dont let it burn either, that is the MAIN thing….
