  1. I wish I could answer your question...I grew up in the Southern rural US and had a few occasions to enter places where chitlins were being boiled. My mom couldn't abide the smell of them so they weren't ever cooked at our house, nor did she ever encourage me to eat them. I have no problem eating an intestine for what it is, bit I can't get past the smell enough to want to try them. After having eaten squirrel brains as a child, and enjoying them at the time, I have no desire to eat them as an adult. Edited to add; now after looking andouilette up, and seeing what they are and how they are made, I feel assured I can add them to my list of things to not eat. Apparently the further down the intestinal tract you go, and the larger it is, the more likely the colon has been used culminating in a stronger odor and flavor.
  2. @JeanneCake, I'm sure yours were beautiful. Please remember however, that the photo you were going by is straight off the site of the lady who originated the cake pop, a lady who has made her fortune coming up with all these cute, fussy little designs for any and all holidays and occasions. I'd also venture a guess that when she is making them, it's as a small batch, 2 dz or less, not hundreds. I'd say as long as the customer was pleased, and you were able to charge what they were worth in terms of ingredients, time and effort, then pat yourself on the back for a job well done. Now, any chance we can see how they turned out?
  3. Looks like Kerry had all the chips/crisps. Bonus points for Anna's fine china😋

  6. At the end of the season can you let a plant go to seed and harvest them? Ours do it every year, but I've never reused the seeds to see if they are viable.

    Dinner 2019

    If you really mean to be redneck, you need to open up a can or 2 of Vienna Sausages.
  8. Thank you. The ones to which I referred are typically less than a foot and the pea inside is about 1/3 less the size of yours. When fully grown and ready for harvest, the hull of the peas get husky and can be used for livestock feed, but while still small and tender are snapped into smaller bite sized pieces and cooked along with the peas ( simmered or boiled with a bit of bacon or smoked pork.) ...peas with snaps. Your stir fried ones look very tasty. That appeals to me very much.
  9. They look similar to what we in the South (US) grew up with as purple hull peas. What length will these grow to, and do they have a distinct pea inside? I'd be interested in seeing one if they do.
  10. I ordered some from earlier this week. From Amazon I got the DK Harvest ( Dien Khanh)brand ,I had ordered the Tellicherry, but was sent the Vietnamese black. The peppercorns are tiny, but have a wonderful peppery taste and fragrant aroma...nice and fresh, air tight sealed bag. Only $8.90 for a 16oz. Would definitely order from them again.
  11. Unless you plan on renting a car, have the beer!
  12. Typically it is greener, but with everyone and their cousin making and posting a version of it on Pinterest, it seems to be morphing into a glorified ranch dressing. Epicurious has a buttermilk version that is much like I make and remember from my childhood, but they also have one that uses a large quantity of watercress and is full on pea puree green.
