Seitan “Ham”

Seitan is a vegetarian meat substitute made from wheat-based protein. It has a very firm, “meaty,” texture.

Ingredients:
Seitan Roast:
2 cups instant gluten flour
2 1.41-oz. packets of Goya ham flavored bouillon
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 tablespoons oil
1-1/4 cups water

Broth:
4 1.41-oz. packets of Goya ham flavored bouillon
2 tablespoons liquid smoke
1/4 cup soy sauce
1/2 cup maple syrup
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon cloves
4 cups tap water

Directions:
Begin by preparing the seitan roast. In a large bowl, mix, the wheat gluten, bouillon, cloves, and cayenne pepper. Stir with a fork to distribute the seasonings evenly. In a separate bowl, combine the maple syrup, liquid smoke, soy sauce, oil, and 1-1/4 cups water. Mix well. Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to combine. Knead by hand for about 10 minutes, until firm, and form into a large, thick egg-shape.
Combine all of the broth ingredients into a crockpot. Stir briefly to dissolve the bouillon. Place the seitan roast into the broth. Cover the crockpot and allow it to cook on low for 8 to 12 hours, turning the roast over halfway through. Slice to serve.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1910, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
