Fallen Rib

A few years back my brother made two huge jars of pickled baby octopus, and I have thought about those pretty much constantly since, so I'm thinking of making them on my own. Unfortunately I also read that octopus heads are so high in selenium that it's easy to get poisoned from eating too many. How much of a risk is there with lil babies in particular? I ate so many of those little fuckers last time, and nothing happened, so idk.

This sounds like a nice twist and has some good details, I'll give it a try!

It's doubtful that baby octopuses are any higher in selenium than adults - and adult octopus has about 75mcg per 3oz serving. The "you probably don't want to eat more than this" limit is ~400mcg/day for several days in a row. So unless you plan on eating a pound of octopus every day for like a week straight, you'll be fine.

If you do plan to eat a pound of octopus a day for a week and you please post a trip report?

Similar looking, pickled mushrooms are dead easy to make and now my friends won't shut up about them.

Anybody have a good caramel corn recipe? I'm considering making some as a Christmas gift, in lieu of more stuff.

I'm looking for a little feedback on flavor profiles. I'm making a modern baked mac and cheese that uses sodium citrate (but not too much) and some potato starch, because I love the texture of both combined. Generally I use (and am planning to use) equal parts medium cheddar, gruyere, and a third cheese to add something new to the party. Will I regret using Beemster Royal Grand Cru, which is basically an aged gouda? Should I use some fontina or something else creamy and mild instead? I'm going to add bacon and broccoli, and I'm thinking of also putting in some diced tomatoes.

Anybody have some savory recipes that use sweet potatoes? I have FIFTY FOUR (54. Half a loving bushel) sweet potatoes that need to be used up quickly and I hate sweet things.

Donít have recipes on me but soups, latkes come immediately to mind. If you can make pasta Casunziei with sweet potatoes instead of beetroot is nice but wonít be super efficient. Fifty-four is a huge amountóa lot of food banks will take fresh produce if the alternative for you is throwing them away I guess, but Iím guessing you know that.

Not a recipe per se, but I've been peeling sweet potatoes and tossing them into a vacuum bag with a pat of butter, salt, and pepper, sealing them and freezing them as single-serving sous vide sides, and I've been quite happy with that. Sometimes it's eaten with a fork as is and sometimes it's mashed with cinnamon and the reserved liquid from the bag. Far more savory than sweet either way, IMO.

A quick pressure cook with them sitting on a steamer basket above the liquid layer will allow you to cook them tender quickly and they are incredibly easy to peel afterwards.

I've made both of these and they definitely rule.

You could also make a big batch of enchilada filling and freeze it. Boil them up and mash with chipotle puree and cream/honey/cheese/whatever.

There are whole restaurants dedicated solely to eating piles of baby octopus in Korea and I've never heard of anyone getting sick. I have gone to town on those in Korea many times without ill effect. I hope you enjoyed my very scientific data.

3 oz of octopus has approximately 75ug of selenium.
Daily intake should be about 50-60ug of selenium per day, with recommended intake limits being about 400 ug/day.

So...keep your octopus consumption under a pound per day, I guess.
