  2. The rains have lessened-slightly-so now my mint has started to grow. I planted a creeping mint last year, and it ended up drowned in my yard.So, this year, I planted spearmint and chocolate mint, and the came up when it was safe.
  3. ahhh!!!! the glories of Inonotus obliquus..... Here is an interesting website;https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Inonotus_obliquus I have had chaga tea once. I do not remember the taste, but I know I enjoyed it.

    China Menus

    liuzhou- What are pignuts?
  10. Question-I know cabbage can be pickled, but can spinach be pickled? I want to do spinach in a basic vinegar/salt brine, Can leafy greens be done?
  11. @liuzhou- Thanks again for all your input. I may not be tremendously smart, but I am a quick learner.
  12. liuzhou-(I do not know how to highlight your name, sorry) Thank you for setting me straight on this. I was looking forward to your input.
  13. Seriously- My editor claims there is such a thing, and wants a story about it. Naturally, knowing of eG, I volunteered to do the story (if, that is, no one jumped on it before I did). I also figured that this might be an interesting thing for the rest of us to follow, too. So, can anyone give me info? photos? You can PM me if that is easier, since I would like to use photos in the article, if and when I get the assignment. --Thanks!
  14. Thank you! I preserved a batch of lemons in salt too. But I was-until now- unclear as to how to use them. BTW I also preserve ginger in vinegar. They are wonderful.
  15. I was eager to try something, so I made macaroni and cheese using ramen noodles instead of elbow macaroni. No pictures
  16. Thanks- I don't always read or pay attention the way I should
  17. The best place for dim sum is CAI in Chicago's ChinaTown. They have some interesting bakeries there too. And, IMO the absolutely best Chinese teashop between my area and the Mississippi is Dreaming of Tea in Evanston.
  18. Since your rout connects to I696 and I75, you can stop at American Coney Island for what is in MHO, the quintessential Detroit culinary experience: http://www.americanconeyisland.com/menu.htm
  19. And what is an "upgrade cheese pizza"?
  20. Interesting... I just started reading "Cooked" by Michael Pollan.
  21. I read both articles. And I agree with everything they said in the eater article.
  22. I just found this.... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R5uj98fDt28 I have eaten here many times. So this qualifies as a very hearty recommendation!
  23. I love trying a new Chinese restaurant in a new city. I especially enjoy finding Chinese-Chinese places rather than American-Chinese places. And, it really makes my day when I find a dim sum place that does good phoenix talons!
  24. I enjoy Gallo Vermouth. It is very tasty, and I cook fish in the white.
