  1. @PositiveMD think steam. (You might want to hang on and wait for the anova steam oven, if they ever bring it to market.)
  2. I, too, am not thrilled with buttermilk. Though whole milk buttermilk is somewhat more palatable for me. You could try substituting whole milk yogurt for the buttermilk. But my advice is to get some whole milk buttermilk and try it. What do you have to lose besides $18 worth of ramps?

  4. Good of you to use a size reference all of us will recognize. My Click and Grow has been out of use since I expropriated its stand for pots and pans. But I could use some fresh basil in my life about this time of year. (And the stand I use happens to be an amazon deal of the day.)
  5. Well, many recipes begin "In a large bowl..."
  6. Thanks. It looked good to me and I have a grapefruit.

    Dinner 2019

    Last night's dry aged ribeye and Momofuku ranch called out for a reprise, plus this time with radicchio. No Treviso, whatever that may be, was harmed. I go through ranch rather quickly but this evening I received a thirteen quart Vollrath bowl from amazon.
  8. Something in the very back of my mind tells me there is a train from the airport to the heart of The Iron Bound. The name Iron Bound refers to the confusion of the railroad tracks. When we were there my Bolivian friend spoke Spanish to the waiter in the Portuguese restaurant. She said most of the staff of these restaurants were actually from South America.
  9. I have three collections of mixing bowls. In order of which they were acquired: Pyrex, real Pyrex* -- the good stuff -- from a garage sale in the '70's; beautiful turn of the century wheat sheaf pottery from King Arthur Flour; and more recently Vollrath stainless steel. Amazon just dropped the price of the 13 quart Vollrath bowl. How could one resist? Sadly I have difficulty envisioning quantities. Were the 13 quart bowl any larger it would not fit in the dishwasher. It should be good for laundry. *but they are chartreuse.
  10. I'd be more inclined to break out the spare CSO and return the problem unit under warrantee. I think it is a design mistake to make the water reservoir out of clear plastic. But as I said, the decalcification went fine, so maybe we will be OK for a while.
  11. The current issue of Cook's Illustrated has a tip for cutting a hard squash: use a channel knife lengthwise to cut a grove; place your knife in the grove to split the squash.
  12. There are a bunch of Portuguese restaurants in The Iron Bound neighborhood of Newark. Can't remember the name of the one I've been to a couple of times. Good sangria. First time I ate there was a business dinner and if I'd had a flight to catch I would not have made the plane. (Second time for lunch so only a half pitcher.)
  13. Since it has not yet been mentioned in this thread the Philips is $129.99 today on amazon. How can you not want one? Or two.

    Dinner 2019

    A bit of leftover dry aged prime ribeye. I could easily have enjoyed the bowl of David Chang's ranch dressing on good bread without having prepared all the other stuff but it would not have made as pretty picture.
  15. No word from Ecuador? Meanwhile my Bolivian friend reports her sister's neighborhood is surrounded and no one is permitted in or out. Her parents are OK.
  16. We made it through decalcification. I think the problem is flora or fauna living in the tank this time of year.
  17. My Hamilton Beach 932 citrus juicer lives on my counter, and not for its looks.
  18. Decalcifying now. May need to preform the @Shelby maneuver.
  19. Bread was good. I can't say why.

    CSO Whole Roasted Branzino, a favorite of mine: Lots of bones but that is part of life. When people are eaten by fish they probably say the same.

    Oh, it's like radicchio, right?
