    Dinner 2019

    Congratulations on the "Family Reserve". Was that from your visit to Louisiana? (I am partial to Family Reserve myself.) Edit: never mind, I asked before I saw your post.

    Chartreux V.E.P. as a digestive. Seriously, I don't seem to have a particular problem.

    Dinner 2019

    A most simple autumn meal. May not look like much but one of the finest dinners I have enjoyed in some while. All components prepared to perfection. For reference: CSO parslied steamed potatoes 25 minutes, sockeye salmon Philips-grilled 8 minutes, Brussels sprouts boiled for four. Chartreux V.E.P. as a digestive.

    Greens might be acceptable.
  5. I love my Brussels sprouts simply boiled, with no ranch dressing. Maybe a touch of vinegar.
  6. Here's more information from the preserved lemons topic: https://forums.egullet.org/topic/8816-preserved-lemons/?tab=comments#comment-76944 The Moroccan preserved lemons I have bought are the little ones @Wolfert mentions a few posts down.
  7. I have only cooked with purchased Moroccan preserved lemons, never made preserved lemons myself. However all the preserving recipes I've seen call for whole lemons, not wedges nor cut up lemons. @Wolfert and her books have much useful information. Some Moroccan tagine recipes call for using the whole preserved lemon, skin and flesh and all -- others just the skin. In which case take a spoon and scrape out the lemon pulp. If it helps I found it was less expensive to buy preserved lemons from Morocco than to buy American lemons in the supermarket which would then need to be preserved. Plus, the ones from Morocco were the correct variety of lemon. If you have a lemon grove in the back yard your mileage may vary. Indeed, salt preserved lemons are salty. Consult the recipe.
  8. I just received this: http://amzn.com/B00A9OF6NS I have been using this: http://amzn.com/B01M31VHNZ Both products apparently by the same company. One seems to include oil and the other not. When should I use one product or the other?

    Wine books

    I've started reading the new World Atlas of Wine. The wit and charm of Johnson's prose is gone. The photographs are few and small, and poorly reproduced. Maps are ugly. The much loved bottle labels are not to be found. The type is now in an illegibly small font. The publisher should be taken out and shot. This is not to say the text is not information rich and accurate and up to date. But, hey, why bother? It brings no joy.

    Dinner was supposed to be...but a migraine got in the way. Maybe you will get to read about it later. Anyhow, fear not, I did not go hungry. Sockeye from amazon. Spice Trekkers' Gaspesian Salmon Rub. One could do far worse. No ramps were harmed in this presentation.
  11. Makes me wonder who is going to eat whom.
  12. I am still working my way though air dried peppers I grew when I had a garden in the 1970's.
