Philips recalls 3-4 million sleep apnea, ventilator machines due to risks

AMSTERDAM (Reuters) -Philips, the Dutch medical equipment company, said on Monday it would recall some "CPAP" breathing devices and ventilators globally because of a foam part that might degrade and become toxic. When it degrades, the polyurethane foam used in sound-reduction foam on the devices can release toxic particles or gas, which in the worst case could cause cancer, the company said in a statement announcing the recall. Philips said that though the matter would cause "revenue headwinds" in its sleep and respiratory care division, that would be compensated by strength in other businesses.

US documents solve mystery of war criminal Tojo's remains

Watermelon Granita

Place half the watermelon, half the lime juice, and half the sugar in a blender. Process until smooth, then pour into a separate bowl.

Repeat with other half of ingredients. Pour into same bowl as other batch.

Transfer mixture to a 9 x 13 baking dish. Freeze for two or three hours, then begin the process of lightly scraping the top, frozen layer. Return pan to freezer with the shaved ice on top remove a couple of hours later and continue scraping. Repeat the occasional scraping process until the entire mixture is shaved. Store, covered in plastic wrap, until serving.

Serve in pretty glasses with a twist of lime.

*Note: if you use a regular watermelon with black seeds, lightly blend the watermelon first, then push through a strainer to get rid of the seeds/seed particles. Then continue the recipe above.

It&rsquos so hot. I can hardly say anything beyond that. My back is dripping sweat, my brain is fried, and my garden is crying out for relief.

When it&rsquos this hot outside, granita is the perfect treat. And you know what? The name &ldquogranita&rdquo is unnecessarily sophisticated it&rsquos basically a glorified slushie. To make granita, you do nothing more than pour a fruity liquid into a pan, then place it in the freezer and use a spoon or fork to scrape the icy mixture as it freezes. It couldn&rsquot be simpler, and there are so many different varieties: just make a liquid out of any fruit, pour it in a pan, and freeze it. Boom! You&rsquove just made granita.

Here&rsquos a watermelon version. The color is gorgeous, the melon version shines through, and it just sings summer.

You need a watermelon. Try to get your hands on a seedless one makes things much easier.

Don&rsquot mess with me. I mean business.

Not pretty, but it doesn&rsquot really matter.

Next time I&rsquoll brandish my machete.

Cut up the watermelon however you like to do things. I&rsquom only using 1/3 to 1/2 of this one, so I&rsquom cutting it into nice pieces so the rest can be slurped down by the kids.

By the way, you might notice that I&rsquove been cooking/photographing grub up at the Lodge more and more lately. I&rsquove been doing big cooking days, doing new recipes for both PW Cooks and my next cookbook, and I&rsquove fallen in love with the light up there.

I have some funny tricks I&rsquoll show you on PW Photography later this week.

Next up, violently slice two limes in half&hellip

Get about eight cups of large chunks. You can see that this &ldquoseedless&rdquo watermelon actually has a few piddly seeds. But they&rsquore light and soft&ndashmuch more palatable than the big black suckers in standard watermelons.

Add the lime juice to the blender (or food processor).

Add some sugar. A little, not a lot, because you want the watermelon flavor to really shine through.

Pack the blender as full as it&rsquoll go&hellip

Then blend it up, piddly seed remnants and all.

Pour out about half the mixture into a bowl, then add the rest of the watermelon and blend it up.

About the seeds: I didn&rsquot mind just pulverizing the soft little seeds in the mixture. They absolutely disappeared, and there wasn&rsquot a speck of one in the finished granita. If you like, though, you can strain the liquid through a mesh strainer before freezing it. And of course, if you wind up using a regular watermelon with big black seeds, you&rsquoll definitely want to strain it first.

This all sounds complicated, but I promise it took all of fifteen minutes.

Maybe thirteen minutes and forty-seven seconds.

Once all the watermelon, lime juice, and sugar are blended together, just pour it into a 9 x 13 baking dish. Cover it with plastic wrap (I didn&rsquot, actually, because I&rsquom lazy) and freeze it for a good two or three hours for the first step.

Gently scrape the top layer with a spoon or fork.

It&rsquoll be more frozen around the sides.

After that&ndashand once you start to get close to the less-frozen middle, cover the pan and return it to the freezer for another couple of hours.

Repeat this process&ndashfreeze for a couple of hours, scrape, return to the freezer, freeze for a couple of hours, scrape, etc. Continue until it&rsquos all scraped!

Note that you can just skip all the in-between steps and freeze the whole thing before you start scraping, but I find that it&rsquos easier&ndashand less muscle-intensive&ndashto do it in stages.

For the final stage, I used a fork. There is no rhyme or reason to whether I use a fork or spoon. It just depends on whether the moon is in the seventh house that day.

Beautiful! The great thing about granita is that the light, scraped ice on top stays perfectly frozen in the freezer. It never clumps up or crystallizes or wigs out or messes up or has an existential crisis. It&rsquos always light, cold, and perfect.

Come to mama. The mercury&rsquos rising outside.

Confession: I was going to save this for my cookbook. But I have a really difficult time having new recipes in the hopper and not sharing them with you here. It&rsquos a problem I have. Send help immediately.

Make granita this week! Serve it in a pretty glass, serve it in a bowl&hellipor just snarf it down right out of the pan as you stand outside the freezer and try to cool down.

How To Prepare Watermelon Rind For Cooking

The whole watermelon is edible, even the hard green outer peel. But the peel is still hard after cooking so it’s best to remove it. After you’ve removed the pink flesh of the watermelon, peel the watermelon rind slices with a potato peeler. Then, depending on the recipe, cut the watermelon rind into 1/2 inch cubes or french-fry like pieces.

If you don’t want to use the watermelon rind immediately, put it in cold or salted water and let it soak at room temperature or in the fridge until you’re ready to use it. Watermelon rind freezes well too!

1 medium-sized watermelon gives about 6 cups watermelon rind

1 cup diced watermelon rind weighs about 140g/ 5 oz


Ingredients

  • 2 cups seedless watermelon cubes [(1-in. pieces) from 1 small watermelon], plus more for garnish
  • ½ cup ice cubes
  • 6 tablespoons (3 oz.) white rum (such as Bacardi)
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 4 limes)
  • 6 tablespoons refrigerated watermelon juice (such as Simply Watermelon)
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
  • Lime wheels

Arrange watermelon cubes evenly on a rimmed baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze until firm, at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.

Process frozen watermelon, ice cubes, rum, lime juice, watermelon juice, powdered sugar, and salt in a blender until mixture is smooth, 30 to 45 seconds. Pour mixture evenly into 2 frozen rocks glasses. If desired, garnish with lime wheels and additional watermelon cubes. Serve immediately.
