Lailey is quite a nice winery.

 

I recall having enjoyed a number of their wines over the years.  For Ontario, they are in the top 20%.

 

Enjoy, folks.

 

Oh, and if NCT has their Meritage (they do not often make it) grab a case!

Would you mind sharing who makes that mold and the mold number or other identifying info? The bar molds I have are flimsy and terrible.

Dont worry @Tri2Cook yours is in the trunk of the car

 


No worries here. Just enjoying the reporting and wishing I was there.

It's kinda like wrestling a gorilla... you don't stop when you're tired, you stop when the gorilla is tired.

Do you mind if I post a virtual Show n Tell? I had these all ready to go and now I will have to eat them.

This was Rebecca's recipe from last year. Pretty tasty.

Jim D got me thinking about marshmallow. This piece was marshmallow and peanut butter gianduja. Splatter was basically leftovers from other spraying projects.

Highwest Whiskey's Campfire Whiskey runny caramel. Doesn't show well, but a crowd pleaser. 

Just know that I would rather be sharing in person than virtual. Enjoy your evening!

Was that just plain chocolate? Beautiful temper.

Those look amazing! I've looked at that mold on the chocolat-chocolat site recently. The price is right on it, I was just having trouble deciding if I'd be able to sell a 100 g bar for enough where I live to be worth it with a 10 bar per kg yield.

      Hello friends,
       
      We recently got our selmi plus ex and have had a handful of successful runs. So far mostly with our enrobing line. 
       
      Theres been 2 occasions now that I have noticed when tempering the machine is cooling past the target temp. When it does this it goes down into the 28c range and the screw pump has to shut off due to the temp and viscosity. 
       
      I also noticed the manual is pretty light on operational procedures. 
       
      The 2 things I can think of that might be causing this other then an equipment error is 
      the chocolate used is to thick or there is a build up of chocolate around the temperature probe near the faucet. 
       
      Wondering if anyone else has had this issue before.

      Hello! I'm fairly new to this site so I don't know if my search was weak. I'm trying to find a way to make Mandarin orange puree at home, but I couldn't find anything even similar in the forum. I am a home cook, but I have been making chocolate bonbons and other confections for over 4 years (intermitantly). It is too expensive for me to purchase this online- not because of the price of the puree, but the cost of shipping makes it prohibative. The recipes I've seen online are all differant and don't seem to be what I need. 
      I would love any help with this! I look forward to hearing and learning from those who have much, much more experience than me. Thanks!

      A quite unusual take on the favorite American chocolate bar: click
    • By ShylahSinger
      Help! I am an amateur and make chocolate truffles, bonbons, and caramels for friends and family. I made some soft caramel for filling molded bonbons. The flavor and consistency are fine, but the caramel is filled with bubbles. I don't know how to get the air bubbles out, and am concerned using it in my molded chocolates. I would like to know if it is okay to use. I have been making confections for about four years and this is the first time this has happened. I would really appreciate any help! I'm new to the forum and don't know anyone yet.

      I am making molded bunnies for Easter and I am finding that the
      necks are cracking and the head breaks away from the body. I have noticed that the neck is not as thick as the rest of the bunny. Total grams for this bunny is 200.
      Does anyone have any suggestions on how to rectify this? Oh yeah I didn't mention that after pouring into molds I place in the refridgerator.
      Any suggestions are welcome!
      Cheers
      Mary - Rookie
