  1. I❤️ this story. I'm so glad you finally got to make them.
  2. How long after you finish folding do you use it...the video @Margaret Pilgrim posted says that due to lack of sugar it will become runny if you don't use it all at once. Could this be contributing to the problem?
  3. When I've cooked a pork loin roast, after searing the outside, I do IP manual, high, natural release, cook time 35-38 minutes. (I use a packaged roast, cut in half, and depending on which 1/2 I'm cooking determines the timing. One end being the leaner whiter meat/ 35 minutes... the end with the redder meat when cooking I go for 38. ) For a lean piece that size, I'd suggest starting at 18-19 minutes.
  4. Blue label indicates it's Sweet.
  5. Most commercially bought /at store rutabagas have been cleaned and are usually waxed. Being from the growers, and not being so processed, yours will look different. Looks like a rutabaga to me.
  6. Where did you find this one? was there no identifying description with the photo? Do that reverse Google thingie and see where the photo originated.
  7. I love evaporated milk...when I was new, back in the days before baby formula, mama raised me on evap milk... She still to this day occasionally tells me I was a Pet Milk Baby!
  8. This year we, all 3 of us, seemed to get food related items. Dad received 5 lbs. Claxton fruitcake, pistachios, Dove truffles, dehydrated mini marshmallows for his cocoa, and girl scout cookies knockoffs from Aldi, Hot Cocoa mixes from William Sonoma, along with BBQ spice rub. . Mama got Lindt truffles, kitchen towels, a pink tablecloth, silicone utensils, storage containers and Italian rainbow cookies. I received several silicone utensils, a pepper grinder, and a big box of variety Jelly Belly beans. On the other e
  9. Today I made the desserts for tomorrow, our US Thanksgiving. I have for the last 4 years made a batch of my grandmother's Banana bread, it makes 3 loaves, and one happily went away with the young man who helps out with tasks too arduous for us to handle. I also made a hot fudge pie, and my first ever attempt at butter tarts. OMG!!! they are one of the best little bites I have ever had. Rounding out the table will be a purchased pumpkin roll. Gussied up with fresh whipped cream of course. Happy Thanksgiving to you all!
  10. 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 a
  11. @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.
  12. Looks like Kerry had all the chips/crisps. Bonus points for Anna's fine china😋

  15. 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.
  17. 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.
  18. 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.
  19. 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.
  20. Unless you plan on renting a car, have the beer!
  21. 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.
  22. That cheese looks like someone was trying to warm it in their hands before presentation!, the other components look pretty tasty. I've been craving Green Goddess dressing for a while now. Must get the stuff to make some.
