Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

The evidence that CBD works is so numerous today that to deny it is absolutely ludicrous. It would be like standing in the ocean and claiming one can't find salt water. But it can't be studied here in the US because of the classification that it's in federally, and if one could do a study there woul...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Gary, my understanding of it is that CBD doesn't need to lead to anything heavier, anymore than aspirin does. Don't confuse the high from THC with CBD which produces no high at all.

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

When the compound CBD that was asked about is discussed with THC containing "cannibis" thrown into the mix, it's discussing apples and oranges. Maybe the CBD can be smoked (I just don't know) but that's not the way I understand it to be administered. Too, there is no high as experienced with the THC...

Re: Cannibidiol CBD - what's up with this stuff?

Gary, I have very little information regarding it, so I'm not the person to answer your question in depth. My limited understanding is that it's the "medical" portion of the active substances in medical marijuana. THC would be the high that's associated with the plant. I haven't tried it yet and if ...

Re: Choux Pastry

The difference between gougere and cream puffs is that the eclairs are piped into a log shape. If you don't have the ability to pipe the dough ( a baggie with a corner cut out will do), cream puffs can be made identical in taste to an eclair (different shape). Cream puffs only require a spoon to mak...

Re: Choux Pastry

Interesting! They look delicious! I never thought to do something like that with them. Whenever we have a "bring a dish" type of event to go to I always bring a version of them. As you wrote, super easy and everyone thinks that I spent hours making them. For those events I've been known to fill with...

Re: What's The Origin of the Face Shaving Map?

I forgot just how screwey that method was until I watched that video yet again. Let me be more specific, tried to watch the video again. I have never been able to get through it due to his "cult terminology". For me it's a turn off each and every time.

Re: Spam?

Trust me this is also about spam. Tonight we had planned the first cherry smoke/grilled burgers of the warm season. The Primo has been buried in snow for awhile. But I got the idea to smoke/grill some spam before the burgers. So I sliced a can of bacon spam. I did taste it and it was good, but tomor...

Chris, you could maybe get them to help in the making. Mom drafted me and I've never begrudged those days helping her. It drew us closer together and gave me training that is the foundation for my cooking today. Consider it to be education expense. Many folks spend far more to educate the youngsters...

Re: Spam?

El' I had an uncle who served during WW2 and they had Spam so often that he would never touch it after the war. I have no idea how they served it to him. But I've known folks who just slice it and serve it as a cold cut on a sandwich. Better them than me. I suppose if I was hungry enough though... I...

Re: Kitchen knives

I said my piece, so I'm done. BTW, it wasn't you Chris. I discussed something unpolitical and was told to never discuss it again because twisted minds could make it political (no tool required for twisted minds) and that subject was just for folks to write, "See what I bought.".

I follow things like this closely. I normally just can't discuss them here and I was basically told that. So I don't go near it. Thanks for raising the issue.

Re: Spam?

Ahh, OK, understood Chris! If Spam was unflavored it might be easier. Thankfully it's not heavily seasoned in the original version, but it is salted. Yes, I can see it taking on sausage seasonings. Maybe as sausage gravy with biscuits; seasonings added to the gravy. I would also suggest grinding the...

Re: Spam?

That rule about refreezing thawed meats only pertains to "whole" meats and not processed meats. The reason isn't due to spoilage, but due to the cell structure losing so much water from repeated freezing that the meat, after thawing, is dry and unpalatable. Also, after cooking, the meat can be refro...
