Despídete del verano con una parrillada americana

Por Kiwilimón - Septiembre 2015
Cada vez se acerca más el fin del verano. Llegará el otoño con sus vientos fríos y salir de picnic dejará de ser tan placentero. Por eso te invitamos a que aproveches las últimas semanas de calorcito de verdad y salgas con tu familia de parrillad, y sabemos que pocos saben cómo hacer una buena parrillada como los norteamericanos. Hoy te dejamos cinco recetas deliciosas de platos fuertes y acompañantes para que uses la parrilla.   Costillas de cerdo barbecue No se puede tener una parrillada americana sin costillitas, es un hecho. El secreto está en cocinarlas a fuego lento y por mucho tiempo para que el resultado sea carne que se deshace y cae del hueso al más mínimo toque. El glaseado dulce del bbq también es esencial para contrastar el sabor de la carne. Recuerda que aquí hay que olvidar la etiqueta, ¡se comen con las manos!   Hamburguesas La hamburguesa que te recomendamos no es cualquier hamburguesa, sino una envuelta en tocino y rellena de queso amarillo. Nada dice parrillada americana como esto. Tendrás lo crujiente del tocino envolviendo la jugosa carne y después el queso derretido en el interior, es un platillo ganador para toda la familia y en especial para los más pequeños.   Elote a la parrilla Si puedes encontrar maíz dulce, del que es muy amarillo, entonces te lo recomendamos mucho pues su sabor va muy bien con la carne. Esta receta es ligera y va muy bien con las hamburguesas y costillas, puedes desgranar los elotes y servirlos tipo ensalada, pero lo clásico es simplemente comer el maíz a mordidas directo y natural.   Té helado Esta bebida es clásica de las comidas familiares de Estados Unidos. Es ligera, refrescante y a todo el mundo le gusta. Claro, la receta que te damos es para la versión Long Island que tiene alcohol, pero puedes quitarle el tequila a la preparación para los niños y listo.   Pay de manzana No debe ser un debate que el pay de manzana es el postre clásico norteamericano, y así es como hay que acabar esta comida tributo a las parrilladas estadounidenses. Recuerda que siempre va muy bien con un rico helado de vainilla o canela y que debe servirse calientito para hacer contraste con el helado.

Keep reading to find out more about the myths and facts of this protein so that you can choose wisely whether you hop on the gluten-free diet or not. What Is Gluten? Gluten is a protein that is contained in many kinds of cereal, like wheat, barley, and rye, as well as foods like pasta, bread, pizza, and soy sauce, among others. Those with celiac disease cannot eat food with gluten because it causes them swelling, intestinal damage, and other reactions in their bodies. Who Should Follow a Gluten-Free Diet? According to Harvard’s School of Medicine, those who must avoid food with gluten are the ones who suffer from celiac disease as it is fundamental to stay healthy.On the other hand, some people might not be allergic to gluten but are gluten intolerant. These people show symptoms like inflammation, diarrhea, and stomachaches when they eat food with this protein.Therefore, there are two groups of people who should stick to a gluten-free diet: Those with celiac disease and those who show pain or discomfort after eating food with gluten. In any case, it is best to seek medical advice to determine whether someone can eat gluten or not. What Is Wrong with Gluten?According to experts, gluten is not so bad, as there is no current scientific research that shows that eating gluten-free foods will improve someone’s health or will help prevent several diseases.Is It Wrong to Stop Eating Gluten?Although this kind of diet has multiple health benefits for certain people, not eating gluten could harm your health because these foods contain vitamins and minerals like iron and folic acid. In addition to this, experts from Harvard University assert that gluten-free food contains more sugar and fat and less fiber. Moreover, recent studies point out that those who follow gluten-free meal plans gain weight.The Health Benefits of Gluten Even though it has become a trend to eat gluten-free foods, which are more expensive, scientific studies have confirmed the health benefits of gluten. A study published in 2017, that included 100,000 people non-allergic to gluten, found no evidence that a diet with gluten was linked to heart diseases. On the contrary, the study asserts that those who do not eat food with gluten have a higher risk of heart diseases.On top of that, several studies have linked eating cereal to better health. Those who eat more whole grains are less likely to develop type 2 diabetes, strokes, and other heart diseases.Now that you know gluten is not as bad as it seems, and if you are sure that you suffer from celiac disease or are gluten-intolerant, then you should avoid this protein. In this case, it is best to seek expert advice and to keep a healthy diet rich in vegetables, fruits, protein, legumes, grains, nuts, and animal protein, as well as gluten-free foods, like quinoa, brown rice, amaranth, maize, oats, and buckwheat.

Leer en españolIt’s time to say goodbye to the old year! Let’s toast in honor of the closing of the year and the chance to start over. Nothing better to do so than seasonal drinks like cider, a beverage everyone has enjoyed in different celebrations and that is closely related to beer and mead. These three drinks go under a similar fermentation process, although the main liquid with which cider is made is apple-based.This sweet and refreshing drink is an important tradition all over the world, especially in Great Britain, where almost 154 million gallons of cider are produced every year (about 45% of the apples produced in the UK are used for cider). The origin of cider goes back to the Norman colonization in 1066, when the production of this beverage began in monasteries. By 1300, cider had gone mainstream in all the counties of England. Nowadays, there are Irish, German, French, Spanish, Belgian, Czech, Finnish, Italian, Norwegian, Swedish, Dutch, Argentinian, Chilean, Mexican, Canadian, American, Pakistani, and South African ciders, and the list goes on. There are alcoholic ciders (known in some countries as hard cider and that contain between 2% and 8.5% of alcohol) and alcohol-free ciders. For the latter, the fermentation process is halted before sugar turns into alcohol, resulting in a sweet, foamy, and golden drink that is ideal for toasting if you do not drink alcohol and that is also kid-friendly. How Is Craft Cider Made?As happens with beer, the industrialization of the production of cider has led different associations to promote the consumption of craft cider. Real cider is prepared with 100% fermented apple juice with live yeast, either in a bottle or a cask. It must not be carbonated, pasteurized, or made from concentrates and it must be prepared with an artisanal process that consists of the following steps: Preparation: Apples are selected and washed, and the leaves and branches are trimmed.Crushing and pressing.Fermentation: Apple juice is placed in plastic barrels. No yeast is added and the juice is allowed to ferment during the winter at low temperature. Clarity, taste, and alcohol volume are checked at the beginning of the summer to know if the cider is ready.Mixing: Once the cider is on point, it is transferred to an oak barrel for aging, where it obtains woody notes and is mixed with aged cider from previous seasons.Mexican Craft CiderCervecería Itañeñe, in Mexico City, produces craft cider with a mix of hop and apples from Zacatlán, Puebla, and Chihuahua. Both in the aroma and taste of this cider, you will find predominant apple notes with a touch of hop and a slight honey note. It is the perfect cider for pairing with traditional turkey with apple salad or an apple strudel.MeadMead is a brew with honey instead of apples, like cider, or malt, like beer. Some meads feature different ingredients like fruits, spices, grains, or flowers, like hop. In Mexico, there are great examples of this drink, such as Ídolo de Ámbar, by Tiny Bastards in Guadalajara, Jalisco, which is a mead made with honey from avocado farms in Michoacán, a mix of yeasts, ale, and champagne for a dry and fruity taste. Moreover, it is fermented for over a year! It is excellent for pairing with paté, soft cheeses, dates, fish, smoked oysters, pasta, and even fruitcake.Beers That Won’t Make You Miss ChampagneIf you are into champagne, you must try craft beer. In 2020, Cervecería Patito from Mérida, Yucatán, launched Brut IPA Año Nuevo, a champagne beer with a citrusy, fruity, dry, and effervescent flavor. Produced with Mosaic hop, it has pine and citrus herb notes and tropical flavors. It is fragrant, pale, and with a light-to-medium body. Try it with soft cheeses like Brie or Camembert, seafood like oysters, and raw dishes like sashimi, as well as with pork loin or pork leg. No matter your choice, remember to support your local crafters during this season. Cheers and happy holidays!Translated by Miranda Perea
