    Dinner 2019

    A couple of dinners, a couple of dishes in no discernible order or anything... Roasted red and green peppers, marinated overnight and served with Cantabrian anchovies. Scallops - Wednesday fish vendor (from Montauk) at Union Square. Also had nice looking porgy for $3.99/lb. This was great - white bean soup (cream, stock, mirepoix, pre-cooked Marcella beans from RG). Garnished with D'artagnan crisped ventreche and croutons fried in the renderings of ventreche. Not healthy but delicious.

  4. I think you'll find a lot of uses for them. I'm mostly using them in applications where I would add dried fruit or fruit sauce to the main dish. Very nice strawberry flavor. Of course they would also be delicious with dessert items... over vanilla ice cream, pound cake, pavlova, etc..

    Dinner 2019

    Venison tenderloin--salad and potato on the side, but I was mostly obsessed with the steak Noodle bowls using up leftover pork belly Lemon chicken and taters with mushroom gravy

    Steak frites, and a gruyere puff for the non-red meat eaters. There was also a salad, I promise!

    Breakfast 2019

    I baked a batch of English muffins for the weekend.
  11. My church always serves warm ponche and champurrado at the celebrations after services on Dec 12, the feast of the Virgin of Guadalupe. I've never tried it. I always thought it would be very sweet but I should give it a try sometime.
  12. Thanks for reporting on those strawberries. I've picked up the jar and put it back on the shelf a dozen times because I didn't know what I'd do with them!
  13. Oh yes, Schutt's does a terrific job. For those of you who are looking to order apples, my local place (70 miles from Schutt's, about a mile and a half up the hill from my house) also does a great job: https://ontarioorchards.com/ I regularly send my parents their dried apples.
  14. This Thanksgiving some of the family that lives in Rochester can down to help us celebrate. Since they were driving, I asked if they would mind bringing some apples from their favorite farm store Schutt's Apple Mill.... They brought a wonderful selection of cooking and eating apples. The majority of the cooking apples because applesause (I reserved a few to make baked apples). This made for one of the best applesauce batches I have canned in years. cook's treat 🙂
  15. Similar packaging to Trader Joe's Pitted Amarena Cherries, spotted these Italian strawberries on my last visit. Very tasty! First tried them with some cream of wheat. Will be part of today's breakfast, spooned on top of some Trader Joe's cheese blintzes.

    Breakfast 2019

    More fatoot samneh made in the A4 box. I wouldn’t normally post this since we’ve seen it enough times now but today I made it with a different pita. This one was labelled as Lebanese style and was much less doughy than the ones I have been using. And I used commercial ghee instead of my homemade. The dish made this way was also good but given my choice I prefer the thicker bread and the flavour of the homemade ghee. Yeah, I know. Not very scientific. Never change more than one variable at a time. But I was making breakfast not conducting an experiment. I forgot to add that after I tasted it I decided to add even more variables and sprinkled it with Trader Joe’s umami powder!
  17. Good for you. I haven’t done anything with it yet and my conscience is pricking me! Not quite enough yet to get me moving but sooner or later…
  18. What a coincidence. I had just saved this recipe to try. Ponche Navideno
  19. Hi @lindag and @DanM, Douglas Baldwin has tables for temperatures to cook meats, fish and vegetables. His book is Sous Vide for the Home Cook. You can find information about sous vide, Baldwin's tests for food safety, his education, and his articles and book on his website here. According to Baldwin, vegetables mostly require 185F(85C) except potatoes which require 175F(80C). I reference the tables in his book all the time!
  20. This is exactly what this is, a configurable electric induction skillet/hot pot. I do think its a thoughtful design, but I have only three "cooks" in it so far.
  21. I'm sorry it is so costly here too. Otherwise I would buy it.
  22. I just went out on the patio and tested the A4 noise against the Duxtop hob. They both live out there. The A4 is virtually sound-less. I turned the dial to full and got my ear right down against it and there is the tiniest buzz, I don't think there's a fan in it, it may be the induction circuitry I am hearing. I cycled the dial to make sure I was hearing the sound correctly. Again, I had to have my ear right down near the unit. The Duxtop sounds like a jet engine comparatively. And I can clearly hear the induction whine from the cycling magnets at a normal distance. I saw your question regarding noise and it occurred to me that the A4 is so quiet, I had to double check myself. I will say the A4 does not heat up quite as quickly as a pan on the induction hob does, but to me it's a minimal wait time. I did a goofy experiment with the takoyaki pan last night. Some ground bison parceled into the cups and some precooked potato/carrot hashbrowns on the side. The bison balls were browned and flipped and a shaving of gruyere was laid on top. Nice appe-dinner. The hashbrown balls were less successful, they needed a binder to hold them together, the starch wasn't enough.
  23. Id keep it for several years in a temp stable place. a closet is fine if covered in clothes to keep the wine at a constant temp. re: personal taste in wine : Tj's sells a zilli9on bottles of 2 buck chuck. Q.E.D.
