  1. Oh my, that would be WONDERFUL!! Can you send a pdf via DM here? (It's actually the whole article I'm after.) eGullet FOR THE WIN!
  2. Yes! I'd guess it's rare that someone is furiously hunting down an old culinary magazine not for a recipe, but for the accompanying article!
  3. Goodness! That must be it! So my suspicion that it is Issue No 39 is correct. That's a good start to finding the actual article!! Thank you! (Here's the link you shared, corrected. Turns out it IS an interesting recipe after all.) https://www.recipelink.com/msgbrd/board_0/2004/DEC/71802.html Paula
  4. I don't remember, actually, and possibly nothing at all! I have always wanted to roast a capon for the holidays, and that old article is what started it all. I'm finally making one, and, while I can certainly cook it without the recipe, I am dying to read the article that put that bee in my bonnet in the first place. Silly, I know...
  5. Hello E-Gulleters! I'm fixated on finding an old Saveur mag recipe and article that included a capon recipe, mostly for sentimental reasons. It's NOT the Oct 2007 one that shows up on a search on saveur.com, but one from some years earlier. (late 1990's/early 2000's?) Just narrowing it down to an issue number might help. Maaaaybe it was Issue 39 (based on the cover) but I can't be sure. I saw ONE reference to it with an outdated broken link here, but that's all I've got. Serves me right for not hanging on to those old magazines... Anyone? Thank you!
  6. Will be in Quito for a couple days next week. Where to eat?? (I prefer to eat the foods of the region, but will be with various minded folks, who may also enjoy other cuisines, so I'm interested in all recommendations.) I did note the Ecuador thread here - useful for types of food, but I need restaurant recs, also. Thank you!
  7. Right, I understand the direction of slicing, I'm just not positive which dimension the 3/4" figure refers to.
  8. Hello! I'm not sure if the "cookbook" section of the forum is the best choice for this post, but... I recent was gifted "Dry-Curing Pork" by Hector Kent - a purely self serving gift from my boyfriend, I might add! I'm going to make the coppiette this weekend, and his instructions for slicing the loin are a bit vague to me. He directs to slice it in "... 3/4 inch strips at least 8 inches long." Do you suppose the 3/4" dimension refer to thickness of the slice (ie the smallest of 3 dimensions), or might he mean thinner slices that are 3/4" wide? Misinterpreting this would really change th
  9. Ah yes, ran across the pdf last night. Thanks for that.
  10. I'm giving this technique a try this year. I'll poach tomorrow morning, cool in the bath. (I'm making broth out of a bunch of turkey backs right now - I'll use that for the bath.) Then I thought I'd take it out and dry in the fridge overnight, because I, too was worried it might not brown nicely from being so wet. (Reports here, however, are good in that regard.) I'm not sure why you'd put the fat on the bird before poaching - makes more sense to do this before browning. I'll use the turkey fat I get out of the stock I'm making now. Finally, I'm considering putting the already cooked and st
  11. Thank you. I have indeed sent the question to Goya, and will absolutely post their response if/when I receive it! Thanks for the cachupa tip!
  12. Curious about Goya's product "Maiz Trillada/Hominy Corn" The word "hominy" implies (to me) nixtamalized corn, but this product is recommended by Maricel Presilla in her book "Gran Cocina Latina" for use in arepas which (usually) use corn that has mechanically hulled, i.e., "maiz pilada" - traditionally cracked in a pilon, not nixtamalized. Is the Goya product nixtamalized or not? I'm, uh... "cornfused." Thanks for your thoughts!
  13. I live in Tucson so it's easy for me to get prepared masa just a few blocks from my home. But, being a food nerd, that is not enough. I can also buy nixtamal at the corner grocery, so of course I did. In a test batch using equipment at hand , 1 pass through the KA coarse meat grinder plate, 1 pass with KA finer meat grinder plate, 1 pass through Rosle food mill second finest disc (2mm), and 1 final pass through the Rosle food mill finest disc (1mm) yields PERFECT tortilla masa, no extra water needed. That being said, it'll take you 3 days to get 3 lbs of nixtamal through that last pass. (I ga
  14. I realized the genesis of my confusion today, while canning apricots. I'll add the info here, for completeness of the thread. In "Blue Ribbon Preserves," by Linda J. Amendt, on p 35, there is a chart of processing temps for various foods. Example: "Fruit (whole or pieces) 190F- to 200F. Times vary depending on the type of fruit, size of pieces and method of preparation. (See recipe for exact time.)" Below this chart she writes, "If you live at an altitude above 1,000 feet, you will need to make some adjustments for the altitude by adding additional time to the standard water bath processing
  15. Right, right, right. I got 'ya. (Sometimes it takes a hammer, I swear!) Thanks for the add'l post!
