  1. FWIW I'm happy with the sous vide supreme too. Once upon a time it was the cheapest. Only disadvantage is the counterspace it occupies. So I keep it in the cellar.
  2. eBay has them for around $100, some are new-in-box. I'm happy enough with my original "classic" Anova. Its a bit big (so what), doesn't have a height-adjustable clamp ( a minor inconvenience) and has a keypad to enter time and temp ( a big advantage ). I'm all in favor of improvements, but wireless control of a SV machine seems like a pointless advance. And who wants North Korean hackers messing with my tri-tip?
  3. Homemade Broth/Stock lasts how long?

  4. Think I'd rather have a .44 magnum, which as Harry Callahan said, is the most powerful handgun in the world. I could get off more rounds with it, I think.
  5. Meatloaf

    right there, plain as day.
  6. Meatloaf

    Looks good. But the proof reader missed the milk (or whatever) for the panade and missed when to add the breadcrumbs. Perhaps the water in the veg moistens the breadcrumbs?
  7. Homemade Broth/Stock lasts how long?

    If the air is squeezed out of the zip lock it cannot freezer burn. As far as I know freezer quality does not prevent freezer burn, packaging does. And Since freezer burn comes from liquid sublimating out of a meat, I'm not sure how stock could even do it.

    Yup. i buy them, "deli containers", on amazon. Great for stock or leftovers or giving guests stuff to take home. Dirt cheap and last forever.
  9. Homemade Broth/Stock lasts how long?

    If the stock is in a ziplock it won't freezer burn or Melt. Zip locks frozen lying flat can then be stacked and keep forever.
  10. Meatloaf

    I make it about once a month. Free form loaf so the grease can drain. I find that the amount of panade and the time the panade is given to soak before mixing is key to texture. Wait 30 seconds...no good. Wait 3 minutes ...just right. Spiced with Worcestershire, salt, pepper, garlic and diced onion. I usually include diced andouille sausage and dress with Major Grey's mango chutney before serving.
  11. We struggled with the choice of gas vs induction. Finally it was the aesthetics of cooking with fire that won.
  12. Breakfast! 2017 (Part 2)

    Its all healthy
  13. Dinner 2017 (Part 6)

    How do you do the port and fig sauce?
  14. Purifying the salt might remove character. Terrior etc If biological contaminants are a concern, boiling would fix that. Boiling doesn't reliably kill spores so this stuff might not be great in food that will be prepared and then stored. Hard to know if there is arsenic or something in the spring ...this does happen...but if used in small amounts as a finishing salt it shouldn't matter.
