I would like to buy some pectinex ultra sp-l.
However I am worried about the temperature during the shipping time.
I read that the storage temperature should be between 2 and 8 C. It works best from 15 to 50 C, and if it stays a lot of time in 25 C, it will gradually be deactivated.
It needs a week to come here (Greece), then will it affect its abilities?
Do you know if I can find a document somewhere that explains the gradual loss of power as a function of time and temperature?
Did you have any experience with pectinex not working well due to bad storage?
Hello, folks, thanks for reading.
My husband thinks, I should start selling my popcorn seasonings (which I make for my family), it’s a good product. But I'm not sure if it’s interesting to other people... So, what do you think, guys?
We’ve bought an air popper machine, but popcorn came out pretty tasteless. Then, we’ve bought different “popcorn seasoning” mixes... But it always ends with all the seasoning at the bottom of the bowl. Then, we've added butter, oil and so on before seasoning... we got soggy, chewy popcorn. Lot’s of disappointments…
When we almost gave up… the magic happened! I figured out the way to make seasonings that:
Stick to popcorn, but not sticky to fingers (or T-shirt , Easy to apply, May be pre cooked in bulk and stored… And popcorn appears crunchy, tasty, thoroughly covered with seasoning.
Sounds good, yep? Now, when I want to treat myself - I only need 2 mins to turn tasteless popped popcorn to a real treat.
The only moment - it request 1 extra effort: after you toss it over popcorn, you need to microwave it for 1 min, and stir after.
So, I was wondering, if you like popcorn like myself - would this seasoning be interesting for you to purchase? Are you ready for a little extra work (microwave & stir) in the goal to flavor popcorn, or it feels too much effort?
As I have no experience in manufacturing and retail, your answers would help me to make a very important decision - to dive in or not...
Thanks in advance for your answers, it means the world to me.
I got to thinking after the disgusting job of separating globs of fat from sous vide short ribs and debating never doing them that way again. If the fat renders out in a braise, but not in the sous vide, what temperature would you need to turn the fat liquid to get rid of it? Is it below well-done or do you really have to cook the shit out of it? Is it just temperature or a time&temperature thing?
Along those lines, what happens with marbled, tender cuts? where is the sweet spot between solid fat and something more palatable?
