first_imgPineapples grow in Brazil, Paraguay, the Caribbean, Hawaii, Thailand, the Philippines and Africa. They are so-called because of their resemblance to pine cones.Pineapples contain an enzyme called bromelain, which breaks down protein and is used to tenderise meat. These enzymes stop gelatine setting unless the pineapple juice has been boiled or the fresh pineapple has been cooked. Canned pineapple can also be used with gelatine.Flavours and ingredients that go well with pineapple are, among others, coconut, honey, ginger, mango and bananas. It can be used in savoury pies and pasties with bacon or ham. Also, put pineapple in almond frangipane tarts instead of the more usual apple or pear. Or why not chop it finely and add to grated carrot for cakes or muffins?You can also mix some with coconut and dried mango for a tropical fruit cake and, instead of a traditional upside down cake, make a tarte tatin with pineapple. For a twist on the upside down cake, make it using a sticky gingerbread recipe.In season: They are available all year but are particularly good at these times:Hawaii: peak season April-end MayCaribbean: December-end February and August-end SeptemberFiona Burrell, co-author of Leiths Baking Bible, from the world-famous Leiths School of Food and Wine in Londonlast_img read more

It does take a while to learn there is a learnin

first_img“It does take a while to learn, there is a learning curve to it but hopefully once we do get a chance to meet with our players, we can cut that curve down a little bit by tweaking some things, by using different terminologies they are familiar with and eliminate some of the steps along the process.” Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories The Arizona Cardinals have a new defensive coordinatorwho spent the 2010 season as a member of the Pittsburgh Steelers’coaching staff. It just isn’t either of the names that were heavily toutedfor the job over the last month.Steelers’ defensive backs coach Ray Horton, not Keith Butler or Dick LeBeau,was named as the Cardinals’ replacement for Bill Davis Wednesday, agreeing to a three-year deal with the team. Prior to joining Ken Whisenhunt’s staff he spent the lastthree seasons working with Pittsburgh’s secondary, a position he waspromoted to in 2007 after Mike Tomlin was hired as head coach. D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Horton may lack experience as a defensive coordinator but he certainly doesn’t lack in confidence. During his introductory press conference Wednesday he made it very clear that he is ready for the challenge of turning around the Cardinals defense.“This team was in the Super Bowl two years ago. We were in the playoffs a year ago. We just fell a little short last year. We aim to be right back there in the playoffs pushing for a Super Bowl bid. There’s no question about it. We’re going to improve on defense.“What we’re aiming to be is one of the top defenses in the league, bar none,” the new coordinator said.He also wasn’t afraid to share with the media what his defensive style will be.“We’ll be an aggressive, disciplined, downhill attacking defense.“Our motto is going to be: ‘Go get ’em’. We’re going to make the quarterback very uncomfortable,” Horton said.Horton added on 620 KTAR’s Gambo and Ash show that he plans to build on the Cardinals number one ranked red zone defense and will bring the personality of Pittsburgh’s defensive style with him. “It’s a 3-4 attacking style defense, schematically very sound,” Horton said. 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more
