    Dinner! 2013 (Part 1)

    Everyones dinners look delicious, with time and effort showing through.We had fried catfish on the bone which i like with rice and homemade chips.
  3. Crouton,sorry i'm late but this is how the pie comes out with flour.As you can see even at the thinnest point it holds it's shape.
  4. My base recipe was 2tb flour to 2 eggs , sugar, butter and 1cup of corn syrup if that helps you to compare to your recipe.
  5. To get it to seperate put the pecans in the pie shell first then add the filling and let set a few minutes for pecans to come to the top then bake. It will work and I do add the flour to our bakery pies so that works also, selling pies for twenty years so it is well tested.
  6. You can add one tablespoon of flour per egg to set the pie.
  7. I guess as long as you seal the pole with foam insulation to prevent moisture and cold air loss it would work, but you will also lose space inside for shelving.
  8. I read a story once of a bachelor that was asked to bring eggnog to a party and he melted a good quality ice cream and added bourbon. If all else fails its a backup, add a little nutmeg and rum.
  9. Would it be possible to move a pole, it would be easier.
  10. Are there any sort of labels or tags on or under it?

    It sounds like she added some flour to all her butter, then added this mixture last
  12. Was it a sour/ tart beer like malt like a sourdough or sweet malt ball tasting?
  13. Not even a taste from the corner ? Under that paper we would'nt see the hole. You are stronger woman than I.Look forward to the review, I was wondering about the loaf also.
  14. I have a large supply of Meyer lemons given to me so today I made a white cake,lemon curd filling and almond french buttercream. That took care of 2 lemons,a case to go.
  15. I make a dry caramel by putting the sugar in a wide bottom pan and when it starts to melt I swirl the pan, gently at first then as it gets more liquid faster. I find once you start stirring with a spoon it starts clumping. I have no problems with this method.

    Boca Raton

    Brewzzi is a good middle of the road choice and very popular, it has a variety of items too. There is always The Cheesecake Factory, another safe bet with lots of choices. Boca is pretty expensive so you will have to preview the menus online to make sure to stay in your price range. As a side send them to Steves Coal Fired Pizza. For fine Italian Saporissimo .Lots of choices for sure.

    Making Cracklings

    Thank you HungryC,yes we have tried the twice fried , which is good for skins but these bellies had a lot of meat and they were cut a little fatter than we would have cut them so we cooked them slow so the meat wouldn't get hard. I have also come home and re-fried cracklins from meat markets that have cooked them greasy.I'm sure you know the ones I'm talking about , everyone can make cracklins but not everyone can make good cracklins lol. Also they usually blister as they sit.
  22. Amazon has molds and they are lised as new or used for sale.
  23. I found some really meaty pork belly at the supermarket today and it was pre-cubed so I bought about 16# to make crackings. We washed the meat and put in a jambalaya pot over a burner outside to cook. Started it real low to melt the the fat slow ,and when the fat started coming out turned the heat up a little. It cooked about four hours and was put on a tray and salted while hot. Delicious on white bread and with a cold beer. When done I took chicken wings with a Thai marinade and fried them in the pork fat .

    Delicious salt pork

    I use salt meat in white beans, red beans, green beans, corn soup, mustard greens, boiled potatoes, cabbage and it is delicious in a spaghetti sauce.
  25. Flipz White Fudge Pretzels. Once I start a bag I can't stop untill it's empty, so I rarely purchase them. And don't ask me to share.
