Pati’s Mexican Table: The Secrets of Real Mexican Home Cooking


The host of a highly popular PBS series, Pati’s Mexican Table, and a self-described “overloaded soccer mom with three kids and a powerful blender,” Pati Jinich has a mission. She’s out to prove that Mexican home cooking is quicker and far easier than most Americans think.Her dishes are not blanketed with cheese, or heavy and fried, or based on complex sauces. Nor are they necessarily highly spicy. Surprising in their simplicity and freshness, they incorporate produce and grains. Most important, they fit perfectly into an everyday family cooking schedule and use just a handful of ingredients, most of which are already in your pantry. Many are homey specialties that Pati learned from her mother and grandmother, some are creative spins on classics, while others are not well known outside of Mexico.Dishes like Chicken à la Trash (it’s delicious!), a one-pot meal that Pati gleaned from a Mexican restaurant cook; Mexican Meatballs with Mint and Chipotle; Sweet and Salty Salmon; and Mexican-Style Pasta can revitalize your daily repertoire. You’ll find plenty of vegetarian fare, from Classic Avocado Soup, to Divorced Eggs (with red and green salsa), to Oaxaca-Style Mushroom and Cheese Quesadillas.

Your friends and family will enjoy Tomato and Mozzarella Salad with Pickled Ancho Chile Vinaigrette; Crab Cakes with Jalapeño Aioli; and Chicken Tinga — (you can use rotisserie chicken), which makes a tasty filling for tortas and tostadas. Pati also shares exciting dishes for the holidays and other special occasions, including Mexican Thanksgiving Turkey with Chorizo, Pecan, Apple, and Corn Bread Stuffing; Spiral-Cut Beef Tenderloin; and Red Pozole (“a Mexican party in a bowl”), which she served on her wedding day.Desserts like Triple Orange Mexican Wedding Cookies, Scribble Cookies

Why Use Pressure Cookers?

Pressure Cookers for canning have been popular for years and for good reason. They can be used to cook a wide variety of healthier meals quickly and efficiently and they also have a second purpose—you can use them to can any food you want to preserve.

Whether you want to whip up a complete, healthy, balanced dinner for your family in 35 to 50 minutes or you want to preserve foods ranging from high acid to low, you can do so with a high quality pressure cooker such as Fagor pressure cookers.

Preserve a Wide Range of Foods with Pressure Cookers

In today’s busy world, it’s not always easy to have fresh, whole, natural foods on hand for your family. You can’t spend your whole life at the grocery store, yet you want to have fruits and vegetables as well as healthful soups and stews, sauces, jams and jellies on hand to make quick family meals after a hectic day of work and school.

When you can foods in bulk, you save valuable time you would otherwise spend shopping for it. Fagor pressure cookers allow you to can your family’s favorite foods, with each jar lasting up to one year.

You can safely and effectively can many different foods, including:

•  Vegetables such as carrots, green beans, potatoes, peppers, peas, corn, beans of all types, etc.
•  All fruits including peaches, pears, pineapples, apricots and more.

•  Sauces such as Alfredo, tomato, salsa, enchilada, etc.
•  Poultry, meats and fish.
Any food you enjoy can safely be canned using Fagor pressure cookers, which come with a complete recipe guide along with Fagor’s home canning kit. These recipes are all tested and proven safe under the USDA guidelines for home canning.

Never attempt to can any food without a recipe, as this can be unsafe and against USDA guidelines. As long as you follow the correct tested recipes for all of your favorite foods, you can preserve them safely.

Why Can Foods?

In addition to saving you valuable time, canning is an excellent way to save money and to preserve the health of your family. Instead of tossing out food that is old or spoiled, you can use pressure cookers for canning these foods while they’re fresh, putting that money right back into your pocket.

During struggling economic times, you want to use every single food item you buy, and high-quality Fagor pressure cookers help you do this.

You will also provide the nutrients your family needs when you prepare healthful, well-balanced meals preserved in jars. Think of it—the food is ready to reheat as soon as you get home from work. No need to plan ahead to thaw it like frozen food.

Using Fagor Pressure Cookers allows you to serve fresh vegetables and fruits, along with hearty chili, stews, meats, sauces and soups you always have on hand. You’ll never have to resort to the drive through or frozen dinners again!
Save your valuable time and money while serving your family the healthy foods they need, using Fagor pressure cookers for canning. Fagor is a leader in producing top-quality pressure cookers.

A Gasket Keeps The Pressure Cooker Safe

Pressure Cookers

Some people have an opinion that a pressure cooker is not a safe way to cook their food. I just want to go through why that idea started, what has happened since then and how it is now. By the end, I hope that you will have a better idea of the safety because of the pressure cooker gasket.

When they first went on general sale, they were very basic and tended to only have one safety valve to release the air if the pressure got too high. When they were not looked after very well, food tended to block this single exit and that is what caused an explosion.

As technology has got more advanced so has the safety of the pressure caner (so called because they used to be used to sterilize cans for home canning). Modern day units usually have 3 separate safety outlets which obviously means that it is not as easy to allow it to get totally blocked. It is still a good idea though to make sure that you clean your cooker thoroughly after each time that you use it, making sure that there is not a build up of food around the gasket.

Another thing that has changed is the material that the pressure cooker is made from. Normally they are now stainless steel or aluminum. This makes them very durable and able to withstand the extreme pressure that they have to work under. The downside of this is that they tend to be heavy so you will need to be careful that that does not cause you any harm.

The main unit and the lid are now locked together in much more secure ways than they used to be. There is a much stronger seal between them. You do need to keep a check on this seal though as any deterioration of it could lead to an accident.

As you can see technology has made the pressure cooker a lot safer kitchen accessory than it ever was. As long as you look after it well, it will keep cooking you good tasty food for years to come.

Pressure Cooker Efficient & Lighter

Pressure Cooker

The pressure cooker is always regarded as a cheap and useful way to cook healthy food quickly. The food cooked in pressure cooker retains its flavor and nutrition. A pressure cooker India has many versatile uses in the kitchen as you can cook soups and softens beans faster and many more.

Pressure Cooker India:
Pressure cooker India continues to perform its primary function of cooking food faster. Improvements in design and materials have made modern pressure cookers safer, more efficient and lighter. Pressure cooker perfectly suits the requirements of making variety soups, vegetables, rice, even desserts and many more. The food cooked in pressure cooker certainly has more flavors and tastes better as the process of cooking needs low volumes of water. In addition, the high-pressure trap within the cookware retains the flavor of whatever type of food is cooked therein. Pressure cooker India also promotes a cleaner and cooler kitchen. With only one utensil used during the cooking process, you don’t have to worry about washing too many cook wares.

Aluminum Pressure Cookers:
Aluminum pressure cookers are lighter than stainless steel, and do not need a copper layer to assist with the even distribution of heat within the pot. Aluminum is generally a cheaper material and therefore may be less expensive. Some females prefer aluminum pressure cookers because they do not get as heavy as the large stainless steel pressure cookers. The lighter weight allows them to better handle the pressure cooker. Pressure cooker India has its sealed cover so; the mess of splashes does not take place. With all the heat and pressure trapped inside the pressure cooker, your kitchen area remains cooler as compared to conventional stove top or oven methods.

Stainless Steel Pressure Cookers:
Pressure cooker India offers the consumer the assurance that comes from its basic properties. Stainless steel pressure cookers resist the damage from the elements that is common to metals, and thereby can be maintained life long. These pressure cookers generally depend on a copper layer, often embedded in the metal, to help distribute the heat evenly within the pot. Because of the stainless nature, none of the sauces or browning vegetables sticks to the bottom, allowing the cook to use the pressure cooker. This is all hassle free as one doesn’t have to change from one cooking utensil to another. This and their supposed durability seem to be adequate enough for some to prefer the stainless steel pressure cookers.
