  5. Sometimes I think 98% of the home kitchens have very very very dull knives. and 95% have very dull knives. If you have very dull knives, a serrrated blade is much better to use, except making sushi. dcarch
  6. Fruit

    I suppose if you are in areas not far from silkworm farming, mulberries can be very cheap. Silkworms only eat mulberry leaves. I remember long time ago, I travelled to a town where there was a lot of silkworm farming. A very ecological way of life style. Mulberry trees produced berries for people, leaves for silkworms. Silkworms made silk. Silkworms also made a lot of droppings, which were used as feed for carp fish farming. After silkworm cocoons were processed for silk, the pupas were fried as snacks. Very tasty snacks and healthy for people. 100% recycling. Nothing was wasted. dcarch

  10. Hot Pot For Home Use

    A thin (and cheap) hot pot has advantages. Many hot pots are used on a $12.00 propane portable table top stove, which has limited fire power. A pot with thin wall works well. Many hot pot restaurants too use that kind of portable stove and the same thin pots. dcarch
  11. Vacuum is a great dehydrating method. Water vaporizes quickly under vacuum. dcarch
  12. I think rice as a desiccant may be one of those myths. "But I always put rice in salt to keep salt dry" In fact, the opposite is true, it is the salt that is keeping the rice dry. Salt is an excellent drying agent. If you don't bag your ice melt salt well, soon the salt will turn into water. That is because it draws moisture from the air very effectively. dcarch
  13. So when will dinner be ready? dcarch
