Cheddar and sour cream Ruffles make me gag every time. Also Spaghettios.

Durian owns bones, though.

That works out to $4.53/lb combined, which would be a bit high for our area (though admittedly we don't get duck at the butcher because so many people give away the ones they shoot there's no market for it).

Where the hell do you two live? 4.53/lb for elk and duck around here means there's chestbursters in the meat or it's a going out of business sale.

Well like I said duck is given away here in the great open wilds of Nevada and elk goes for the same price as beef and venison, so usually in the $2-3 per pound range depending on cut etc. That's at a butcher, though. You can still pay silly amounts of money on red died industrial meat at the supermarket if you want. And Whole Foods will charge double what the supermarkets charge. The secret, really, is buying from good local butchers like kiteless is doing, or raising your own which is really the best thing.

Kiteless, did you ever make that marmalade? If so, did it turn out or did you like it? We were hoping for some feedback.

I hate electronic books. I like real books. I like the smell, the feel, the way they treat my eyes. I like my shelves lined with them. I like to not have to worry about batteries. I like being able to browse used book stores. I like the analogness of them.

I'm missing why you want enameled, though, instead of just cast iron?

Its my understanding, and please correct me if I'm wrong, but if I plan on doing a lot of tomato based, or heavily acidic dishes, that enameled is the better option?

I suppose that's the theory, but I don't pay attention to it. I don't have any enameled stuff.

Chili is the obvious one. It's a stew and so you'd prefer a dutch oven over a stock pot for it for the same reasons you would for any stew.

Something like a Sunday ragu, as well.

I agree that the enamel ware is useless. I do have a stainless skillet that I like, and my rice pot is a thick rear end cast aluminum job from the 70s. Also some big steel military pots for doing big things in. But most of the time, I use my cast iron stuff.

Also, as far as heat buffering and capacitance, cast iron is the only thing that works well when I'm using my woodstove as the heatsource .

I don't know - I don't play in the retail world. As a rule, the only way to really be sure is to see if a place that's really big is using union labor all the way down, or else personally vet each company you do business with.

Queue the Rich People Problems thread. "Waaaaa! I have to work somewhat hard in somewhat mediocre conditions without feeling a real sense of personal growth! Life should not be this hard."

Literally, 99% of history would kill for these problems. We take it for granted that these conditions should exist but they have only existed for something like 1/2 of 1/2 of 1% of the time that man has existed. Even today, they only exist for maybe 25% of the population.

You are working, you can eat, you have health care, you have comfortable shoes (maybe 1/50 of 1% of mankind has had that), modern dentistry (again, maybe 1/50 of 1%) and all you can do is gripe. Maybe that attitude is what keeps you at the bottom of the ladder.
