As with any other new cooking device, the more use you giv the Jet-Stream oven, the better results you will get.
Soon you will be adapting your old favorites. Here are a couple of recipe adapting guidelines from the booklet that comes with the oven:
*Temperature will remain the same in most cases. If the recipe calls for 425 to 475 degrees, use the 400-degree setting.
*Reduce your cooking time from one-half to one-third of the time called for in your traditional recipe.
*Experiment with the fan speed. Often the food can be finished on high speed after it partially cooks on low.
This is a quick and tasty recipe for strawberry pie. If you are using the Jet-Stream oven and a frozen pie shell, you will have to use the hold-down rack or the air movement will cause the aluminum tin to jiggle around.
Makes 1 pie.
1 (8-inch or 9-inch) pie shell
1 (3 1/8 ounce package) vanilla pudding and pie filling using 1 3/4 cups milk, see note
2 cups fresh strawberries, cut in half
1 (10 ounce package) frozen sliced berries
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/4 cup strawberry jelly
Place pie shell directly on rack of oven and bake 5 to 6 minutes on low speed at 400 degrees in the Jet-Stream Oven or follow package directions on prepared pie shell for traditional oven. Prick well with a fork after 1 minute or the dough will puff up.
Prepare glaze: Thaw and crush strawberries in saucepan. Stir in cornstarch and jelly and bring to a boil. Strain and cool.
Assemble pie: Spread cooked and cooled pudding in the bottom of pie crust. Top with strawberries. Carefully pour glaze over strawberries and thoroughly chill pie.
Note: Do not use instant vanilla pudding or you will get a mushy pie filling.
