The Co. Limerick dairy-farm-turned-premium-ice-cream-business is honoured with a gold award for its tempting Honeycomb Ice Cream and a silver award for the brand’s limited edition Caramelised Pop Corn Ice Cream.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up The popular Co. Limerick ice cream brand ‘scooped’ the top prize in the prestigious ‘Open Class’ at the inaugural Irish Ice Cream Alliance Awards.Located just outside the picturesque heritage town of Adare in County Limerick, Adare Farm has been steadily gaining word-of-mouth acclaim for its premium range of unique dairy products.Pasteurised but non-homogenised, Adare Farm dairy produce offers a traditionally creamy texture – pasteurisation guarantees the highest standards of food safety; non-homogenisation ensures a rich smoothness and a dreamy nostalgic taste.Dairy farmer and managing director of Adare Farm, Tommy Relihan, says it’s a significant endorsement of the SME’s quality, standards and ‘foodie’ credentials.“We believe that non-homogenised dairy produce always tastes better. So, while we pasteurise our milk to guarantee the very highest standards of food safety, we don’t homogenise”, explains Tommy.“Many of our customers tell us that there’s a huge difference between ice cream produced by some of the bigger brands and the delicious taste of our traditional Irish farmhouse product. The result of our traditional dairy processing techniques is a country-style dairy produce that many of us remember from our childhoods – it’s the kind of dairy produce that would have been the norm before Irish farming became more reliant on bulk processing technology.You will find many of the Adare Farm foods in over 20 retail outlets in the region and they have their shop operating in the Milk Market bringing you a taste of county Limerick’s finest. Be sure to get your hands on some of his award winning fare and here’s a hat tip to Tommy with my recipe for you to try.Spiced chocolate and lemon rind ice creamDON’T be worried or put off by the inclusion of the word spiced in the title as it’s more for effect than punch. But trust in me, I hope not to lead you astray. WHAT YOU NEED500 ml double cream21g unsweetened cocoa powder1/2 tsp cayenne pepper140g dark chocolate (60% or more)250ml milk150g sugarpinch of salt5 large egg yolks1/2 tsp vanilla extract100g of candied lemon peel WHAT TO DOWarm 250ml of the cream and add the coca powder and be sure to whisk it well to blend the powder in. Bring it to the boil and immediately reduce it to a simmer for one minute. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped chocolate until the mix is smooth. Add in the other half of the cream. Pour the contents into a bowl and scrap down the sides. In the same pan, warm the milk, sugar and salt and in a separate bowl whisk the egg yolks. Slowly pour the milk over the eggs but be sure to whisk continually. Put the mix back on the heat and constantly keep the mixture moving and stir until it thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon. Place a sieve over the bowl with the cream and chocolate mixture and strain in the milk and egg custard. Stir in the vanilla extract, the cayenne and the lemon peel and cool the mixture over a cold water and ice bath. Chill it in the fridge and then place in the ice cream maker or the freezer. If you do place it in the freezer, during the first two to three hours of freezing be sure to stir the mix as this will remove the possibility of ice crystals forming. This mix will also work if you substitute the pepper and lemon for mint or liqueurs.

Costs push food inflation to 4%

first_imgFood inflation rose to 4% during October, affected by poor harvests, rising production costs and commodity price increases.In the British Retail Consortium (BRC) and Nielsen Shop Price Index for last month, the level of food inflation for fresh and ambient produce rose by 0.9% on September, affecting the level of overall shop price inflation which increased to 1.5% in October.Stephen Robertson, director general at the BRC, said: “Overall shop price inflation is still low, but pressure from food has edged it up. After three months of stability, food is being hit by a combination of poor harvests, rising production costs and previous commodity cost rises working through.“In particular, the wet summer and higher feed costs are affecting vegetables and meat and poor supplies on world markets are making the ingredients for some manufactured foods more expensive.”He added that the above costs started to drop during the last quarter of the year, which promised to help ease pressure in the run-up to Christmas, as retailers started to push promotional activity and discounts to attract more shoppers.Mike Watkins, senior manager, retailer services, Nielsen, said: “With weakened demand, there is intense price competition across all retail channels, especially on discretionary items, and this is keeping inflation low. However, it’s difficult to predict the levels of retail sales in the run-up to Christmas and, with cost price increases now being reflected in some food price inflation, this will inevitably make shoppers more cautious.“Even so, with retailers maintaining promotional activity, there are sure to be some excellent deals out there for the savvy shopper.”Non-food prices remained at the same level in October following a 0.2% decline in September.last_img read more

US Charges Venezuelan Chief Justice with Corruption and Money Laundering

first_imgBy Dialogo April 17, 2020 Maikel Moreno — the highest-ranking judge in Venezuela — was indicted on separate charges in Miami, Florida for money laundering and corruption on March 26, the same day that Nicolás Maduro and others in his regime were charged with narco-terrorism and other criminal charges.Moreno is believed to have doled out legal favors in exchange for millions of dollars in bribes paid through Miami and foreign bank accounts that he spent on chartered private jets, expensive watches, and other luxury goods in South Florida, federal prosecutors say in their affidavit.One example they cite was Moreno authorizing the Maduro regime’s seizure of a General Motors auto plant in Venezuela rather than keeping it open for thousands of workers.Ariana Fajardo Orshan, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Florida, said corrupt Venezuelan leaders like Moreno have for too long used South Florida to launder their money.Former Venezuelan intelligence chief Hugo Carvajal stands during his extradition hearing to U.S. at the High Court in Madrid, Spain, September 12, 2019. (Emilio (Naranjo / Reuters)“Whether it is million-dollar condos, very fancy yachts or private jets — all of this has become a part of our society in southern Florida,” Fajardo said. “This party is coming to an end.”Fajardo also announced that her office had already seized more than $450 million in bank accounts and assets in several cases involving more than a dozen Venezuelan defendants, including a former national treasurer.According to the criminal complaint, in 2014, Moreno told U.S. authorities in a visa application that he earned the equivalent of about $12,000 per year from his work in Venezuela. Yet for a span of four years — from 2012 to 2016 — Moreno’s U.S. bank records show about $3 million in his accounts, primarily from large transfers from shell corporations with foreign bank accounts.Fajardo said Moreno specialized in cases involving fraud and financial crimes so that he could take advantage of deep-pocketed business defendants willing to pay bribes for their freedom. She said the chief justice “received large bribes to authorize the dismissal of charges or the release from custody of multiple Venezuelans who literally stole billions of dollars from Venezuela’s state-owned oil proceeds.”Another former general pondering surrenderMeanwhile Hugo Carvajal, the former chief of Venezuela’s military intelligence unit, is discussing his possible surrender with U.S. authorities. Carvajal was among those charged with Maduro and other top regime officials with narco-terrorism.Carvajal, a former general and ally of the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chávez, has been in hiding since a Spanish court in November approved his extradition to the United States. It was unclear when or if he would surrender.The Spanish police arrested the former spy chief in April 2019 at the request of U.S. authorities, but Spain’s High Court initially ruled that he should be released and his extradition request was denied. The court reversed that decision in November, prompting Carvajal to go into hiding. Since leaving Venezuela, Carvajal has denounced Maduro and given his support to Interim President Juan Guaidó.last_img read more

South Sulawesi policeman probed for alleged sexual harassment against three female officers

first_img“At first, one female police officer mentioned the harassment to her fellow female officers. It turned out that she was not the only victim. Two other female officers were harassed in 2017 and 2020,” Ibrahim said.Read also: Mataram University lecturer suspended over report of alleged sexual harassmentThe three women then reported the case to their superior, who opened an investigation against AM. During a preliminary investigation in which the three women and six witnesses were questioned, Selayar Islands Police chief Sr. Comr. Temmangnganro Machmud decided to remove AM from his post.Ibrahim said Temmangnganro initially tried to mediate the case, but after the three victims insisted on taking the case to court, the South Sulawesi Police agreed to begin the legal process. The South Sulawesi Police’s criminal investigation unit handled the case while the internal affairs division handled the alleged ethical violations. The investigation was still ongoing, Ibrahim said.“The perpetrator claimed that he was only joking, but for the victims what he did was harassment,” he added.The three women have continued their duties at the Selayar Islands Police while getting assistance for trauma healing.Besides the sexual harassment case, the Selayar Police had also named AM a suspect in an illegal logging case. (aly) The South Sulawesi Police have carried out their legal proceedings against the head of the Selayar Islands Police’s criminal investigation unit for allegedly harassing three female police officers who are his subordinates.“The harassment was not physical but verbal through improper words. It offended the dignity and honor of the victims and, therefore, the perpetrator must undergo the legal and ethical process,” South Sulawesi Police spokesman Sr. Comr. Ibrahim Tompo told The Jakarta Post on Saturday.The case came to light after three female police officers reported the officer, identified only as First Insp. AM, 47, for sexual harassment in July.center_img Topics :last_img read more
