Browned for 3 minutes as per instructions. Covered bucket and cooked additional 15 minutes. Let it cool a while in paper towels. Tastes great.
Got the cover on faster so I guess it didn't brown as much.
Put in about 8 pieces cut smaller as shown in the instructions. Used long tongs. Oil simply bubbled up after adding each piece.
Strained the oil and put in in the refrigerator.
Thanks for posting the instructions here.
