  1. I don't know about Starbucks latte, but you can add pumpkin flavor by juicing a fresh pumpkin and reducing it to a light syrup.
  2. "Fresh or Frozen The term fresh on a poultry label refers to any raw poultry product that has never been held below 26 °F (-3.3 C). Raw poultry held at 0 °F (-17.8 °C) or below must be labeled frozen or previously frozen. No specific labeling is required on raw poultry stored at temperatures between 0 and 25 °F (-17.8 °C and -3.9 °C).:"

    Turkey Prices

    We pay about $5/pound for free range broad breasted bronze turkeys finished on sunflower seeds. The most important turkey that we purchase costs $0.19/pound with a $50 grocery purchase. We buy about three of these for our local food pantry. tim
  5. It is possible to saute toss with the Mauviel M'cook. The Demeyer Proline is just too heavy for most of us.
  6. Jewel Foods had a store in Wilmette in 1969 that carried only frozen steaks . They touted the benefits over fresh meat using much of the same arguments being made by CI.

    Will sour cream break in the oven?

    Heavy manufacturer's cream (no additives) or heavy natural creme fraiche will not break. It can even be oven cooked to a very thick consistancy without breaking. Bechemal with cream added would also not break.

    Adventures in Steak

    It would be interesting to know the breed of cattle sold in Australia. This sounds like piedmontese beef which produce an more, shorter muscle fibers with less connective tissue and intermuscular fat. The claim is very low fat and tasty/tender beef.

    Do you cheat when you chop onions?

    The slices near the core do get smaller with the horizontal cuts. The slices in the middle; not so much. It really depends on the shape of your onion. tim
  10. Consumer Reports recommends the Frigidaire Gallery FGGF3032MW @ $700, Samsung NX58F5500SS and the LG LRG30915W
  11. Has anyone tried the Trader Joe's South African Smoked Seasoning? The base is not smoked peppercorns but paprika peppers which have been slow smoked for 48 hours over acacia wood and flaked, The flaked paprika is blended with sea salt (30%), garlic (17%), dried basil (6.5% and packaged in a grinder. The result is wonderful on almost anything. $2.30 for 1.76 ounces. http://www.traderjoes.com/fearless-flyer/article.asp?article_id=1223 Tim
  12. Silicone cupcake molds (terrible for cupcakes) are perfect for savory parsnip flan. The insulation replicates a water bath.

    Wishbone removal: Why?

    Removal of the wishbone makes it easier to remove the whole breast in a single piece. That is the only benefit; many find it well worth the small effort. Tim
