    Dinner 2022

    Though, I must ask, why past their best? I'm still working my way through peppers I grew and dried in the 1970's.

    Yes, I confess, same unopened bag.

    I have an unopened bag of whole dried Tien Tsin peppers. Would they be appropriate for such a dish?

    Here only Hellmann's.

    Lunch 2022

    I grew up in Philadelphia saying "tuna fish". I still say "tuna fish" if it comes out of a can. I must say I had never thought about it till now.
  8. As not a fan of whole wheat bread, white whole wheat flour did not do it for me. Your mileage may vary.
  9. I can't get any low heat setting from my GE electric apartment range. I still like the GE, I have never used a better range. But that's why I love my Paragons! And I'm pretty sure when the Paragon is unplugged it is really, truly off. Still, it seems a shame to waste browned leeks when they would be fine in a soup. Or add them to a pot of Rancho Gordo beans.
  10. Yes, I have used kefir in Nik Sharma's blueberry and omani lime ice cream.
  11. My NP-NVC18 cannot do oats because it is said oats would clog the pressure valve. However if you look at the instruction manual (linked above) for the newer NP-NVC10/18, which is designed for oats, the oats setting does not apply pressure -- nor do the settings for sushi rice, sweet rice, porridge, or congee. The other nine settings do apply pressure. Brown rice uses higher pressure than white rice. What is your source of groats? I ask because Bob's Red Mill has stopped offering them.

    Dinner 2022

    Fettuccine in sausage, butter, cream sauce. Be still, my formerly beating heart.
  13. That's what I'd be afraid of.
  14. Batch 18. Batch 17 was the best batch ever. This was supposed to be the same as that. Somehow it got foamy when I homogenized. I'm thinking the foaming may have to do with the temperature of the orgeat when I homogenized. Unfortunately I did not record the temperature. Fortunately the foam is going down.
  15. Not mushy. I have about four bags of pasteurized thighs in the refrigerator at the moment. Typically I either use them for faux chicken cacciatore or steam bake in the anova, the way I would bake a previously uncooked thigh.
  16. The instruction manual... https://www.zojirushi.com/support/manuals_ricecookers.html For my Zojirushi the minimum amount of white rice is 1 go. For the NP-NVC10 the minimum amount is 0.5 go. I could not find the manual for the NW-JEC10, possibly because the NW-JEC10 is new to North America. If one is cooking only rice, cleanup is minimal. A cleaning function is hardly needed. After cooking octopus or oatmeal a cleaning function might be more useful.
  17. I'm happy to talk about rice in weight. However when it comes to cooking rice I simply fill the go container to the top, rinse the rice in my Japanese rice washer, add the washed rice to the Zojirushi bowl, then fill the bowl with water to the 1 go mark.
  18. My Mouli grater had rusted badly so I pitched it. Possibly a mistake. I'd worry about rust buying secondhand.
  19. That is the maximum amount. I am concerned with the minimum amount.
  20. Oh, dear. I see the NW-JEC10 is now available in an official US version. Last I looked all that was available was the Japanese version. I want one.
  21. Disclaimer: I've never owned an Instant Pot nor three. However I know and love the Zojirushi NP-NVC18. If it ever broke, which of course it won't, I'd get the NP-NWC10. I'll probably get a NP-NWC10 sooner or later anyhow. Whatever model, don't make my mistake, buy the smaller version. The minimum amount of uncooked rice my NP-NVC18 can make is 1 go. A go is 180.3906836964688 ml. The smaller cookers can make half of that. I'd also be sure to find a model with the "Umami" setting. And now I am wanting rice.
  22. I do thighs at 70C/158F for about three hours. I add no salt or spices. The chicken is pasteurized, it keeps for weeks and weeks in the refrigerator.

    Last night... Unashamedly Martin's Potato Roll.
