Recipes

Shortcrust Pastry________

For the speed of attachments see page 4

12 oz/300g plain flour

6oz/150g mixture of lard and margarine

1 ⁄

2 tsp/2.5ml salt

3 tbsp/60ml water approximately

Roughly cube the fat. Using the steel blade, place the flour, salt and fat into the bowl and process using a higher speed until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Continue operating the machine on a lower speed and add the water down the feed tube and process until one or two balls of pastry are formed. Remove the pastry from the bowl and combine together by hand to prevent over processing. Use as required.

Hints

• For best results use the fat straight from the refrigerator.

• Take care not to overprocess the fat into the flour, as it will continue mixing when the water is added.

• If the dough is slightly warm after processing allow it to rest for 10-15 minutes in the refrigerator before using.

• Scones can be prepared in a similar manner to pastry.

Meringues _____________

For the speed of attachments see page 4

4 egg whites

8oz/200g caster sugar

Whisk the egg whites until stiff. Add half the sugar and continue whisking until the mixture is glossy. Remove the whisk and with a metal spoon carefully fold in the remaining sugar, a spoonful at a time. Pipe the mixture onto trays lined with non stick paper. Bake in a preheated oven at 90°C or at the lowest setting possible for 4-5 hours, until the meringues have dried out. If the meringues start to brown, prop open the oven door a little.

Hints:-

Cut dry ingredients into cubes, e.g. bread for breadcrumbs and feed them through the filler cap onto revolving blades.

Recipes containing liquid can be placed directly into the liquidiser

Best results are obtained using Speed 2.

When making mayonnaise, place all the ingredients with the exception of the oil into the liquidiser. Remove the filler cap and with the motor running gradually add the oil in a steady stream.

Never exceed the maximum capacity on the liquidiser of 1 litre/ 1

3

4 pints.

IMPORTANT

For safety reasons we do not recommend the blending of very hot liquids

Do not place dry ingredients into the liquidiser before switching on

Various spices such as cloves, dill and cumin seeds have an adverse effect upon the liquidiser plastic and should not be processed.

The liquidiser runs at such high speeds that all foods are processed within one minute.

Prolonged running or repeated use should be avoided especially when processing dry ingredients or small quantities.

The liquidiser is not suitable as a storage container therefore ingredients should not be left to stand in the goblet before processing and should be removed immediately afterwards.

When switching off, wait until the blades have stopped revolving before removing the liquidiser.

8

Centrifugal Juicer

The centrifugal juicer if supplied, is suitable for juicing firm fruit and vegetables such as carrots and apples. Little preparation of these foods is necessary and any combination of fruit and vegetables can be used to produce a healthy and flavoursome drink.

1.

Fit the strainer basket into the inner bowl ensuring that the tabs on the strainer basket fit into the slots in the inner bowl.

(fig 13)

2.

With the processor bowl in position add the above assembly turning until it drops into position(fig 14).

3.

Fit the attachment Iid by turning clockwise until it locks into position. (fig 15)

4.

Cut the food into suitably sized pieces to fit the feed tube.

5.

Switch the processor to maximum speed, add the food down the feed tube whilst exerting an even pressure on the pusher. Process one or two pieces of food completely before processing further amounts.

6.

Once all the food has been processed allow the machine to run for an additional 20sec under no load to ensure maximum juice extraction.

7.

After use, dismantle the unit. Unclip the strainer basket and remove the waste. Transfer the juice to a jug for serving.

13 14 15

Hints:-

Best results are obtained by using firm fresh fruit and vegetables.

Fruit and vegetables with tough skins such as melon or pineapple should be peeled before processing. Stones and pips should also be removed from fruit and vegetables such as peppers, melon and plums. It is unnecessary to peel and core apples and pears before processing.

Your juice separator will process citrus fruit but the large quantity of pith present will cause the resulting juice to be bitter. A special citrus juicer is available for this purpose.

IMPORTANT

To get the best performance from your attachment process small quantities at a time and clean the strainer basket and inner bowl of pulp regularly.

Your processor may occasionally vibrate during use due to uneven distribution of pulp. If this becomes excessive, stop the machine and empty the strainer. We recommend that no more than 454g / 1Ib of fruit or vegetables be processed in one batch.

Please Note

Some fruit and vegetables may discolour the plastic. This is perfectly normal and will not impair the flavour of subsequent juices.

Using Your Kenwood Food Processor

Assembling the Processor Bowl and Lid

1.

Place the clear plastic bowl over the processor drive, positioning the handle towards the back of the appliance(fig 1 ). Lower the bowl onto the power unit and turn in a clockwise direction so that it locks firmly into place.

2.

Once the bowl is locked in place you can add an attachment to the food processor (see below). Always fit the appropriate attachment in the bowl before adding the ingredients.

3.

Place the lid onto the processor bowl with the feed tube towards the back of the appliance. Turn the lid clockwise until the tabs on the lid lock against the tabs on the bowl and the feed tube is in line with the handle (fig 2). Ensure that the mark on the lid aligns with the mark on the processor body (fig 3).

Your processor incorporates a sophisticated safety interlock feature. FAILURE TO CORRECTLY FIT THE LID WILL PREVENT YOUR

FOOD PROCESSOR FROM OPERATING.

4.

Reverse the above procedure to remove the bowl and lid. It is only possible to remove the lid when the control is in the off (0) position.

Using the Attachments

Steel Blade, Dough Tool and Paddle Egg Whisk

1. Lock the bowl onto the food processor.

2. Place the attachment over the food processor drive and carefully turn until it drops all the way down

(fig 7). The tool must be completely down as far as it will go before you proceed.

3. Place the ingredients into the processor bowl.

4. Fit the lid and operate the food processor

The steel blade is the most versatile of all the attachments and can be used for a variety of operations including cake making, bread dough, pastry and chopping meat, vegetables and nuts. The texture of the food is determined by the speed selected and the length of the processing time.

.

Use the dough tool if supplied for yeasted mixtures

7

The paddle egg whisk if supplied, must only be used for egg whites for meringues or for folding into souffles etc. Always ensure that the bowl and whisk are completely clean and free from grease before whisking egg whites. Best results are obtained when the eggs are at room temperature for whisking.

This whisk will whisk up to 6 egg whites.DO NOT USE WITH OTHER LIQUIDS.

IMPORTANT

Your processor and liquidiser are not suitable for crushing or grinding coffee beans, or converting granulated sugar to caster sugar.

When adding almond essence or flavouring to mixtures, switch off, remove the lid and add to the mixture direct. Direct contact with the bowl, feed tube, lid or liquidiser material may result in permanent marking. This will not affect the functioning of your food processor.

Maxi-Blend Canopy

(If Supplied)

The maxi-blend canopy is used in conjunction with the steel blade when blending soups or other liquids in the processor bowl. It allows you to increase the liquid processing capacity of the bowl.

1. Place the steel blade and food to be processed into the bowl.

2. Position the maxi-blend canopy over the steel blade and allow it to rest on the step in the top of the processor bowl (fig 8).

3. Fit the lid and operate the machine.

8

Twin Beater Geared Whisk

(If Supplied)

Use for LIGHT mixtures only eg egg whites, cream, evaporated milk and for whisking eggs and sugar for fatless sponges. Heavier mixtures (eg fat or flour) may damage it.

1. Ensure that each whisk is pushed securely into the drive head of the assembly (fig 9).

2. Place the whisk onto the food processor drive turning to ensure it is correctly located.

3. Place the ingredients into the processor bowl.

4. Fit the lid and operate the machine.

Hints:-

Best results are obtained when the eggs are at room temperature for whisking.

Always ensure that the bowl and whisks are completely clean and free from grease before whisking egg whites.

9

Slicing, Shredding and Chipping Plates

Use the shredding plates for cheese, carrot, potatoes and foods of a similar texture.

Use the slicing plates for potato, carrot, cabbage, cucumber, courgette, beetroot, onion and apples.

The extra coarse shredding plate is suitable for cheese and carrot when a very coarse shred is required.

The standard chipper plate is suitable for potatoes which can then be fried to produce slim french fries, or for other fruit and vegetables including, swede, apple, pear and cucumber suitable for casseroles and crudities for dips.

The fine (Julienne style) chipper plate can be used to produce long thin strips of potato which can then be fried to make super slim french fries.

Alternatively other fruit and vegetables can be processed such as apples, carrot, swede, courgette and cucumber and used for garnishing dishes or for use in salads, casseroles and stir fries (thin items are best packed into the feed tube horizontally).

The rasping plate can be used for grating parmesan cheese and vegetables including raw potatoes to make German Potato Dumplings.

1.

Select the desired plate and assemble onto the shaft. Do this by pushing the shaft onto the plate until it is fully home (fig 10). Twist slightly if necessary to engage. The desired cutting edge should be on the top face.

2.

Place the plate and shaft over the food processor drive and carefully turn until it drops all the way down. The attachment must be completely down as far as it will go before you proceed.

3.

Fit the processor lid and select which size feed tube you wish to use. The pusher has been designed to include a narrower inner feed tube. This allows individual items or thin foods to be more easily sliced and shredded. To use the inner feed tube, the larger pusher has to be in place in the feed tube before the food is added. (fig 11).

To use the larger feed tube, use both pushers together. (fig 12)

4.

Place the food into the selected feed tube.

5.

Switch on the food processor and using the pusher(s) exert an even pressure onto the food.

10 11 12

Hints:-

To obtain good results always use fresh fruit and vegetables.

When using the larger feed tube, cut food to fit. Fill the feed tube almost to the top and push firmly down with the pusher whilst operating the machine.

Always pack the large feed tube to prevent foods from slipping sideways during operation. Alternatively use the inner feed tube (fig 11).

Always use the pusher to process food onto the plate. Never use your fingers.

Remember when using the large feed tube, the two pushers must be used together.

When slicing and shredding, packing the food in an upright manner will produce shreds and slices shorter in length than if the food is packed horizontally.

Please note that there will always be a small amount of waste left either on the plate or amongst the processed food after using the cutting plates.
