  1. @Shelby Oh honey that is LA every day. Avert your eyes do not engage. The good guys outweigh the messed up. Nice job on the stock.

    Hello peanut brittle. Kids loved to watch the reaction. Much more rewarding than their school volcano experiments

    Barley malt in the dough is common. Maybe she used a different sweetener. Even though "in the dough" it would still hit the "crust" flavor wise I think. The ones I've had without do not hit the notes.

    I think the goal is texture (chew & pull) versus flavor as it is with the pretzels I thought.
  5. @shain All lovely. That lid! - "We Adore Veggies" is great. I've never done ginger marmalade - maybe when we can get out again I'll try with the young stuff that has that pink blush. Totally on board with ginger + orange.
  6. Welcome and good luck with the biz. My birder and plant friends love your locale. When I am selling plants I tell potential customers the aeoniums are from the CI and that gets them all perky.
  7. @Shelby Is there a suggested bean or use associated with the sweet little jar of turmeric?

    Looks great. Why couldn't he believe it Too good? (I won't go into my issue with crack descriptor)
  9. Kim Severson did a great piece in the NY Times about finding the real recipe for her family's Sunday Gravy. She traveled to Italy to talk to distant relatives. Turns out It had little to do with Italy. Her relatives were perplexed at her rendition.
  10. My thinking is along the lines of @weinoo said regarding anyone being able to look up carbonara on the net. As to the rest = first thought in my tiny mind "time to call the knacker".
  11. Do you have to spritz the foliage when heater is running as it can dry the air? Looking good.

    Oh I do enjoy the Korean sweet potatoes. To me heartier and more subtle than what we call a sweet potato in US and available in a variety of Asian focused markets. I have not done my own pickled carrots in a while since a huge can of them is $1 at $1 store and quality is good. When I see shoppers buying the huge 25 or 50 pound carrot bags I always ask "horses or juicing?" Never get a pickle answer Now I have carrot on the brain.
  13. Oh yes quite available. World market has it. My Ralphs (Kroger has Marmite and another close market has Kraft Vegemite shown

    Crawdads - grew up with them in the 2 local lakes. A curiosity we were too clueless t think about eating them. Ten again water quality probably questionable due to run-off. Are most of the Louisiana ones "farmed" now? @pattigood lookin dish
  15. As with camellia sinensis processing is a major taste factor. Well someone needs to plunge in On the temps I was thinking where we see it native which is Southern US. I had a thing for iilex once- maybe merry jolly Christmas associations. All we have here is the holly looking but not botanically related Toyon and Pyracantha.
