    Rice cook books

    Okay I have a great cook book for potato recipes. Wondering if any one has the ultimate rice cook book they could suggest. Something with each chapter for each country that cooks rice and or by meal use main, side, or dessert?

    Making Do .....Butter

    Have a bullion strainer and good old cheese cloth. Think I will try #1 TY. Any Idea of ratio? Thinking if a pint of cream yields 1/4 cup it is a big production for a small end.

    Got to love those grand accidents! How thick do you let the simple syrup get? Like olive oil or more towards maple syrup? Do you heave a guess as to what the final proof is on the limoncello?

    It is the one that tastes the most like what we had in southern Italy. They had another version that had cream in it. Tasted like a Creamsicle had melted which was too sweet to me.

    Home made Limoncello

    Stirring or pouring don't do the same amount of aeration thats why they shake cocktails.It does not matter in what way the sugar is dissolved in the water as once it is a syrup be it by heat or blending each results in the same sugar concentration so there is no thermodynamic difference. With no...

    2 cast iron cookware questions

    I am lucky that family handed down Griswold cast iron. There are the lodge pots and roasting pan and then a perforated cast iron griller, panini pan, and large round pizza pan.

    First outdoor plantings for 2020

    Looks great! I've got animal trouble to figure out this year. Always had lots of birds but now skunk, rabbit, squirrel, and opossum that love my yard. Neighbor behind me got the groundhog.

    Home made Limoncello

    Yes I use 10 organic lemons. I don't boil the filtered water for the simple syrup. I use an immersion blender instead. The cavitation introduces more air to the liquid (like shaking a cocktail). Boiling the water makes it go flat and you have to wait for it to cool before mixing. It taste better...

    Anyone else making their own? This is great but you have to have it carefully. It is easy to over do it!

    Peeling Carrots

    I thought that peeling was done because of the risk for cysts of nematodes or intestinal worms and other micro organisms. Potatoes that have had the skins treated with growth suppressants to slow sprouting during long storage have this chemical removed when peeled.

    Peeling Carrots

    Short strokes both ways since the peeler has two blades for each direction. Keep it sharp with a diamond steel that was bought in the fishing section (great to sharpen hooks). Hang it on a shoulder hook not kept in a drawer with other stuff. That way the blades won't get nicked or dulled. Like...
