    Kipflers are a particular type of potato, generally smaller and irregular, elongated than normal spuds (potato). They have a more nutty flavor and the because of their shape they have more area of skin for the same mass of actual flesh. Ideal to roast with the skin on. I find kipflers go really well roasted to accompany steak type dishes, particularly where a steak or meaty gravy is involved. Swede in America is probably called a Rutabaga and is different to a turnip. The turnip has yellowish flesh compare to the swedes white and the flavor of the swede is usually somewhat milder than the turnip. Same family I think.The local supermarket sells both and the checkout people mostly don't know the difference.

    New house, new kitchen

    I love your new kitchen and have a real case of storage envy! My pet peeve about so many kitchens is the lack of any counter space next to the stove and the refrigerator. You need a landing pad for items there. Yours looks like the designers took that into consideration. We were in a kitchen supply store a while back and the selection of rolling island units was just amazing. So much storage. Do you have a move in date yet?

    Sure! I used frozen peas that I ran under water in a strainer. I don't care for canned peas......I suppose you could use them, but I'd think they would be too mushy. After peas were thawed, I threw them in the bowl with small cubes of sharp cheddar cheese, mayo, a pinch of sugar, a splash of vinegar, salt and pepper, thinly sliced or chopped white onion (I like red better, but I didn't have any so white onion had to do). And that's it! I was too lazy that night, but adding diced hard boiled eggs and bacon is really good in there too.

    I roasted some kipflers with swede, baby carrots and garlic, plus made a broccoli in cheese sauce. Served with a couple of chicken and sage snags, and a fat dollop of hot English mustard.

    Crazy Good e-Book Bargains

    I was lucky enough to have received my dim sum training from Chinese friends. I remember an occasion back in the very early '80s probably, when LA's Chinatown still had more dim sum places than the San Gabriel Valley and the bill was still figured by counting up the plates. A Caucasian couple was seated within earshot and were clearly unfamiliar with the offerings so they asked the server what they were. She lifted the lid from the first stack of steamers on her cart and tilted one so they could see the contents and shouted, "MEAT INSIDE!" She did the same with her next stack, a completely different item, and again loudly intoned, "MEAT INSIDE!" and yes, she said the same thing a third time for her last offering. I can't remember what the items were but I think one was shrimp, one pork and maybe something with chicken. Those diners could certainly have used that field guide!

    Appealng as always. Maldive fish flakes sound interesting mixed with the coconut. The coconut is on my shopping list. Will probably just get tiny drried Mexican shrimp as they are cheap and pack some flavor. The rains made the nasturtiumms go wild so I think them an interesting green (+ flower) to treat like that.

    Has anyone purchased beef tallow online? I've been looking at it on Amazon and found some companies brag about no flavoring in the tallow and others brag about the beefy flavor in their product. So it's a little confusing. I hope someone has a trusted online source that's not too pricey.

    No, the stove isn't induction. It's just a solid-surface electric. That's just a hot pad lying next to the stove. I have a dark granite block I'll likely sit there.

    The KA is one thing I intend to leave on the counter, if possible. It's too danged heavy to move back and forth. But yes, those cabinets are large enough to store if it I decide I need to do that. I once had the KA on a sturdy rolling cart I kept in a closet. It's occurred to me to go back to that idea. Bottom shelf of cart serves well for baking supplies, etc.

    there was this one theory by historians that we moved from a hunter-gatherer society to a grain based agricultural one because humans wanted to grow grain to make beer so that's why we settled down to farming and civilization happened beer gave rise to our civilization and that without beer we would all be nomadic barbarian hordes

    Ok, if we're going to get technical: There is an American IPA style and it doesn't necessarily have to use "American" hops - but they typically do. British IPA, back in the days when it was shipped round the horn in wooden barrels and taking months with no refrigeration, was aggressively hopped at the brewery, knowing that by the time it made it to India the hops would have mellowed significantly - resulting in a taste that was like the regular pale ale from home. In modern times we don't have to worry about that, but American brewers started using recipes similar to the old ones, but drinking the beer fresh. Originally British hops were used in an attempt to recreate the British style, but the beer was very hoppy. But people liked it that way, eventually leading to experimentation with domestic hop varieties, and for some of us, even more aggressive hopping. Hence the aggressive hop profile of modern IPAs.
