    Dinner 2018

    I was going to make squid with Calamondin orange sauce, but no one was too excited about it. So instead, I made Calamari con sugo d' Calamondin arancia. It got much better reception. dcarch
  2. I am assuming the inventor must have worked out all details before spending a few thousand dollars to hire a patent attorney to file for this patent. But I don't understand: If the cooking vessel is induction capable, wouldn't it block all magnetic field to the rotating stirrer? From the diagram, I don't see how the induction coil is shield from the magnetic motor, wouldn't the motor be fried in a few seconds? The whole concept of sous vide is that it makes no difference what the cooking heat source is, why the complicated expensive wifi induction system? dcarch
  3. Interesting. As I understand it. The way to demagnetize a magnet is to use an induction magnetic field. dcarch
  4. Perhaps this is happening? When you have a very hot metal plate under the wet pizza dough, immediately water evaporates and in fact, a vapor layer separates the metal and the dough, making it unimportant the metal conductivity, because I would assume the temperature in that steam zone can't get above 212F. However, the infrared radiation from the hot metal plate can penetrate the steam zone and heat up the dough at any temperature, not limited to 212F. If the above is true, the thickness and conductivity of the metal may not be as simple as to how the dough is cooked/baked. dcarch

    Papaya - Ripe? Unripe? Help needed.

    That papaya is not ripe. It should be orange/red all the way to the rind when ripe. When it is ripe, it will have lots more flavor. dcarch
  9. This just happened a minute ago. I was gardening outside, taking advantage that it was cloudy. All of a sudden, a big flash and an instantaneous gigantic blast. Based on the blast happened at the same time as the flash, I was probably not far from the thunder/lightning. I could have been deep fried with my tomatoes. When you are gardening, you are in a place where lightning strike happens most likely there. Warning! Google "lighting/thunder" and learn about the dangers and safety considerations. This year, 17 people have been killed already, not counting injuries. dcarch

    That's not a papaya. It is some kind of Asian melon. dcarch

    Labor Day dishes. dcarch Portuguese chicken with squash from the garden, on brown rice and beans. Shrimps with rainbow peppers from the garden
  14. May not even be covered by the insurance. dcarch
  15. I would consult a liability lawyer first, if someone gets sick from using one. You are talking about very low temperature cooking. dcarch

    A very lucky guy. With the imbalance of males/females in China, with her looks she could have married to any billionaire. Did anyone asked you why you were taking food pictures? Thanks for sharing. dcarch

    Rice cookers for singletons

    I use the pressure cooker to pressure steam rice. I can do any quantity from one teaspoon rice to whatever size pot that will fit inside the PC. No burned bottoms. With a non-stick pot, clean up is easy. dcarch

    Lot's of tomatoes from the garden. Made clams on mini conchiglie pasta with tomato sauce made with white tomatoes. dcarch
  19. If you had used the self-clean cycle, yes, it is possible that you had generated lots and lots of microscopic particles as well as many unknown fumes. dcarch

    Dinner 2018

    First, you should get farmers market tomatoes, if you don't have your own garden tomatoes. Don't waste your time with store bought tomatoes. I sliced tomatoes to about 3/8" thick slices, then into the dehydrator (depending on your brand) for about 2 hours. Turn the slices over for another 2 hours. By that time the slices should be about 1/2 the original thickness, soft, tender, but not drippy, with twice the goodness for amazing BLTs. dcarch

    Thanks! Yes, the bacon was specially "engineered" for BLTs. High density crispy bacon without taking up a lot of thickness, and square in shape for the sandwich bread. The tomato slices were also "engineered" for BLTs. They were 1/2 dehydrated to be twice as flavorful without dripping all over. dcarch
  23. A few more hours ----------------------> strawberry cream pie!!!! dcarch

    Dinner 2018

    BLT, T, T, T -------- Massive "problem" with the garden. Overwhelmed with Huuuuge amount of huuuge tomatoes. Have given away a few hundred pounds already, still busy eating and dehydrating. May be a local La Tomatina Festival? Anyone? OK, going to make BLT, T, T, rainbow BLTs. dcarch
  25. I hope not. More people will be unemployed and go on welfare. dcarch
