  1. For stock/chili you don't need a high performance pot. Just a pot. Go to a restaurant store and get a cheap one. Maybe $30. There is dignity in a humble pot that is suited to the job.
  2. Great questions. Water can't get hotter than 212f so a lid wont raise the temp. It will keep water from evaporating though . A basic method is to put a layer of carrots and onions on the bottom of the pot along with a couple cloves of smashed garlic. Put in red wine to cover halfway up the meat and whisk in 2 tbsp of tomato paste. Salt and pepper. I might add a little bit of cinnamon or 5-spice Cover it and put in a 300F oven and ignore it for 2 hours. Then turn the meat over and give it another hour or so. Remove t he meat and take the liquid and remove the fat...perhaps then thicken with starch and serve with the braised veg.

    Jiffy love

    Or add diced jalapeño
  4. PA is slowly allowing wine shipments. Who can and who cannot is mysterious. Fortunately I can shop in DE. But the PA liquor control board does a pretty good job with wine. They are a megabuyer and get good prices. Liquor prices suck though. The stores have many more employees than needed and are a nice little patronage job. As much as I think the state shouldn't be inthe booze business, they do a decent job of it
  5. PA's state-run stores are stocked.

    Dinner 2021

    Thigh cooked in CSO, diced, generous shake of sweet pimenton, splash jalapeño vinegar, salt, mayo and diced piquillo peppers. I let it sit for 30 min or so.

    2021 Farmers' Markets

    We have a big orchard and veg grower near here. They sell their own stuff which is very nice. But they are open all year with a full selection....

    Half of it probably came from Jersey
  9. The various ethnic groceries around here sell humongous aluminum pots at a great price.

    Dinner 2021

    Salmon, potatoes and piquillo peppers, and Israeli salad I usually don't get that albumin ooze when I pre-salt the salmon
  12. Counter with 15" clearance under a cabinet that covers half of the oven ?
  13. Interesting. I view potato salad as a simple dish. Perhaps I'm missing something.
  14. Finding a raisin in food is like finding a cock-a-roach. Maybe worse
