  1. The veggie garden is slow this year...except the garlic which is about to send out scapes already. Lots of yellow onions. They are harvested early because they always get worms in them. Herbs are doing well. I made chive flower compound butter yesterday when the flowers were at their peak.

    My condolences Kim. My mom had Alzheimers. Never easy but she is at rest.
  3. I have that cookbook....bought on @rotuts previous recommendation! Very good...I love salads.
  4. My Echo arrived yesterday and I have been bossing around Alexa ever since. The timer function is excellent so far. Might be a challenge with a kitchen full of guests but that’s not gonna happen for awhile.

    Pot stickers with a spicy vinegar/soy sauce dip. Always hits the spot.

    I really like those "watermelon" radishes. I found some seed last year and grew them in my garden, and plan to again this year. Mine are just peaking out of the soil. Can't wait to eat them!

    @JoNorvelleWalker Looking at your baked potato I can see why you would be disappointed with your CSO result (this conversation is from the CSO thread). If I remember you bake your potatoes at 430F for two hours on salt and that's how you get that deep crust. Nice.
  9. Fantastic! I love biochemistry....had many of the common pathways committed to memory back in the day of working as a clinical dietitian. It is fascinating. Diabetes is a scourge that is incredibly complex. Glad you are enjoying the read.
  10. Oh, sorry. That's a big surface to stir polenta even for a serving for four...it would dry out without being watched....that's my thought.
  11. This is another good article: http://www.coppercookwareinfo.com/copper-jam-pan-the-game-changer-for-jamming/
  12. If it's the 'sugar'pot on their webpage it is 2.2 L so that would be ok for small batches of jam and polenta.
  13. I guess I should rephrase my overheating copper pots comment. You can easily get your copper pot too hot by putting it over high heat. It doesn't need to be over high heat to get hot quickly. Pots lined with Tin is another situation as the tin can melt over a hight heat...I have ss liners. Yes, I use a diffuser under the jam pot...its a big pot and when on a low heat it gets too hot in the centre.
