Re: Drop Scones

Would the red can be more like our Blackstrap Molasses?

BTW, BM makes decent drink; well, I liked it as a child. A tablespoon or 2 in a glass of milk. It really jacks up the iron in ones blood over time. Makes the lips look as though one is almost wearing lipstick.

Re: Tortas de Aceite

Whole grains help, but todays alleged "whole grains" aren't whole grains at all, yet are called that (they lie). The only way to get real whole grains is to buy from someone who has an old time mill, or make it yourself. I grind my own. As someone who tries to bake with whole grains, there is a reas...

Re: For Marmite lovers only

Gary, just to possibly clarify things, the 2 taste nothing like each other. Marmite has umami taste but only when used sparingly.

Re: For Marmite lovers only

It's used in an almost microscopic layer. :) OK, maybe not quite that thin, but I exaggerate to make the point. It's not used like butter. A little goes a very long way.

I wonder how a small amount would work in soup or gravy as a flavor enhancer?

Re: Boots for heavy rain

I'll have that problem again in a few months. But here's what I've found. BTW, I have no idea if the boots I'm discussing are anything that you would want. A few years ago I cheaped out and got some manure stompers for rain and such at the local; ag' store. They were cold during the winter and dang,...

Re: Kitchen knives

One grinds until the burr is felt on the edge, then one moves to the next station. It took long for my knives because some of them were heavy bladed knives used for dressing out deer, and knives used for other purposes...very heavy blades up to almost 1/4" thick. My kitchen knives were reground fair...

Re: Kitchen knives

Murray, the 3rd station on the Trizor is a hone, so in order to not abuse your knives you would use it (and put away the steel) to realign the edge. The machine is far better at controlling the angle and maintaining the edge than humankind is. If you insist on using inaccurate methods of maintenance...

What a shame that you had to do that Gary. What mental illness afflicts some folks that they can't take care of their gear? I just don't understand.

Re: Kitchen knives

That's what we use too FW' . Once you get the edge converted over to the 15° angle it's a walk in the park. I love the thing. Our knives have never been sharper and I thought I was doing good with sharpening by hand. But now they are much sharper. I watch cooking shows and when I see a chef abusing ...

Re: pots and pans

I don't know if I would ever buy another set. One gets a lot of stuff that will never be used. But if by a set you mean pieces that you buy because you'll use them, I would agree with that. You might also go to your local restaurant/food service supplier. I've gotten some awfully good things from ou...

Re: A Self Review

I've never found pushing a DE blade to do more than it can safely do to be a good thing. As you wrote you just don't know when it's had enough. I'll add that when a DE blade is used when it's getting dull it will bite. Now a SE blade can be pushed and I've never had one bite, it just stops working e...

Re: A Self Review

Yup. I call "touch" pressure. The blade needs contact (obviously) but if the skin is deformed inwards it's too much pressure. Deformed in the direction of travel is to be expected.

Re: Lung ailments - post-tobacco - causes thereof

I view marijuana smoking akin to smoking unfiltered Camel cig's on the lungs.

Folks are serving themselves up to be guinea pigs and paying $ for the "pleasure". (OK, so I'm told that smoking MJ is pleasurable, but I don't think so.)

Re: Knockoff "Taylor Pork Roll"

Gary, it's definitely not a national brand. It's made in the Philly area and is found (that I know of) in NJ and NY. Maybe other areas close by, but I don't know of it.

Re: pots and pans

If one is cooking something more or less dry, yes I think there is something better than teflon. It's a well seasoned steel pan (or well seasoned Cast Iron (CI) ). Matfer calls it black steel and it will get that way after being well seasoned. But don't use it for making sauces and such. That wet co...
