Is it wrong for me to think margarine tastes good?

It can't even be a gauche ironic enjoyment like gas station snack cakes, it's loving trash and tastes less complex than butter in every way imaginable.

So it turns out that a combination of pussy juice and unrefined coconut oil smells exactly like blue cheese.

I had to wash my face very thoroughly.

On a less lol note, I discovered last night that rare spit-roasted lamb + grüner vetliner mimic the taste of it as well.

nice

what recipe did you use? how did it turn out? black pudding and blood sausage are two things I've often thought about making, but never really tried to do.

A friend of mine in Bavaria gave me a cookbook from the Palatine region and it's of that style. Basically boil half a rasher of skin-on bacon, cube, grind with onions and garlic, add salt, nutmeg, white pepper, coriander, allspice, etc. Combine with a few pints of pigs blood. Stuff, boil, store.

Being my first sausage endeavor, some of mine were overfilled and popped, but 75% of them remained intact. Got some dark rye bread in the oven right now and will try with that for breakfast tomorrow.

I always have rice in my blood sausage - you didn't have anything in there to soak up the blood or anything?

rice is if you're making boudin noir, IIRC. Blood will congeal when heated either way so its moot. The ground pork belly with the onions and blood makes for a mostly solid stuffing material anyway.

Proper borsch (to me) needs hunks of beet, potato, onion, cabbage, and meat, maybe some carrots but not too many. You also need smetana and dill. Fantastic stuff, super filling. My Ukrainian friend describes her borsch as 'everything but the kitchen sink.'

This is basically my preferred borscht. I compromised, and pureed up the beet, carrot, and onion, and left the cabbage and potato intact. It's not perfect, but it's tasty enough.

I'm not an expert, but I make a mojo-kinda thing to marinate and baste onto chicken after grilling. Typically throw some garlic cloves, extra virgin olive oil, red wine or sherry vinegar, oregano, fresh ground cumin, and some lime zest and juice in a blender. Sometimes I'll put some scallion or parsley or cilantro for some herbage notes, sometimes sub orange for lime and up the vinegar ratio. Sometimes I'll put a chile or two but that's starting to really trend away from mojo territory.

I got hooked on mojo in Miami, and when I make mine, I use orange in lieu of lime usually. Other than that, pretty similar process.

I got a mystery batch of ricotta to form when I made cheese curds and when starting to reduce whey for mysost. I almost never use the stuff so I was at a loss. Ended up putting some local honey, cardamom, and a pinch of salt in and having that on toasts. It's only a cup of ricotta so it wasn't enough for lasagna or whatever I'm just not all that familiar with making use of it

Do different colored bell peppers taste different? I always buy green ones because they're $1.99/lb instead of $6.99/lb and I don't care what color my peppers are.

I use green ones if I'm making trinity, but other than that, the red/yellow/orange ones are usually preferred if you're showcasing bell peppers.

Is there a way to fine-tune adjust a refrigerator's temperature? I have a cubby fridge I bought for cheese caving, and it's got a dial that cranks from 0-5, with 0 being off and 5 being the coldest. The warmest setting I can register is 40 degrees, which is too chilly to ideally age the hard, non-mold-ripened cheeses I want to start on. I'm trying to find a way to get it to 55 degrees.
