Planting the pressure cooker seed: When I went to get my blender fixed (which it is but only because the guy hot-wired it), everyone else wanted something related to their pressure cookers. Hmm... there must be something to this pressure cooker thing 'cuz everyone in Mexico seems to have one. I decided to conduct some research.
Beans in 20?? Rice in 8?? "Oohh," I said to myself, "imagine the possibilities. 10-minute mole?!?" And if a soup turned out poorly, I wouldn't feel bad that I spent only 30 minutes--and not 2 hours--making it. Not to mention that it would taste even better than if I had cooked it for two hours.
Sewing and growing the seed: So the in-laws generously bought us a pressure cooker, and I have been more than pleased with its performance. The noise is sometimes unbearable, but considering what it's doing to the food, it's worth it. A rapid slow food flavor. Since owning it, I've been wanting to make things just to be amazed by its speed. I haven't tried rice yet, but I can't wait to taste 8-minute rice.
Next to their blenders, I know Mexicans love their pressure cookers. If you know some delicious pressure cooker recipes, please advise. I'm especially looking for a 10-minute mole recipe. :)
