    DARTO pans

    There was no rust on mine either. Maybe I am paranoid.

    Click and Grow

    Yes! I had to double check mine with a magnifying glass!

    DARTO pans

    I was going by appearance. I'm more worried about non-rust than non-stick at this point.

    Question about dried bean varieties

    One way to find out!

    Click and Grow

    I thought you said in the first post that yours had germinated on day 3? Still I suspect it will be a while till I am making pesto.

    All three basil pods have germinated! Day 3.

    Question about dried bean varieties

    I have a Nigel Slater recipe that calls for dried haricot beans. Google tells me that translates to navy beans. I have no navy beans but I have pounds and pounds of Rancho Gordo products. Could I use Marcella beans?

    DARTO pans

    Maybe this isn't the best thread to pursue the issue but I am still puzzled by the logic: Paella is cooked in a paella. A paella is traditionally made of carbon steel. Tomatoes corrode carbon steel. A paella starts with a sofrito based on tomatoes. Putting another coat of seasoning on my poor pan.

    One of my basil pods has germinated. That was fast.

    When I purchased my Zojirushi the price difference was negligible. What I did not take into account is that the 5 cup will make half a cup of rice but the 10 cup won't make less than a cup.

    Dough hook not grabbing dough

    That sounds like an awful lot of revolutions but your results are beautiful. Do you use similar for French Lean Bread?

    Peas are planted. Now it's wait and see. Thanks to @rotuts I expect the police on my doorstep any day. I'm sure Alexa has already called them.

    Dinner 2019

    I figured it was store-bought, as is mine. Mine never looks so appetizing.

    Those pictures really looked good though!

    Dinner 2019

    Beautiful! There must be a secret to orecchiette I have not found. However tomorrow I might just buy some spinach.

    Same. Though I have yet to open it.

    DARTO pans

    Thank you. That's what I would like to know. I didn't think it was too bright to cook down tomatoes and garlic in a carbon steel, however that is what the recipe said to do. I'm in the process of re-seasoning. How do others work their sofrito? Next time whether it's traditional or not I plan to prepare the sofrito in stainless steel, then add the finished sofrito to the cooking rice. I have other recipes that do it that way.

    Breakfast 2019

    I sort of meant to post the paella in the dinner thread but since it was around 4:00 am and after a liter of MR, I suppose breakfast was equally appropriate. There is a story to the clams. I wanted littleneck and amazon Prime Now had them, but the unit of measure was a "1". Not "each" (as it was for cherrystone). I took a chance and ordered. As it turns out "1" means 1 very large amount of clams. About five dozen. I am 1 person.

    DARTO pans

    Sofrito stripped most of the seasoning though.

    Nice wood block though.

    Click and Grow

    @rotuts the smart plug will do all sorts of schedules but I am happy to let the Click and Grow control itself: 16 hours on, 8 hours off. I just needed a way to turn the Click and Grow on at the proper time to get the schedule started. Still, "Alexa, turn on the grow light!" has a certain ring to it. The DARTO pans are on the second shelf under the Click and Grow. I couldn't figure any other place to put them. The peel, which is about four foot long, is hanging at the far end of the Click and Grow. Don't worry, I saved six spaces for the peas.

    Dough hook not grabbing dough

    My guess is there is too little dough for the size of the bowl. I use a KitchenAid 5 quart bowl and for best results I have to scale up the MB recipes. Since that results in too much bread, often as not I make do and suffer.
