Lactose free milk exists and honestly they should make all milk products lactose free.

I find the pills donít work particularly well as pills. Iíve had luck grinding them and adding them as a powder during cooking.

What is ďAmericanĒ gravy?

Yeah I mean American gravy ranges from like sawmill pepper to giblet mushroom to like Cajun stuff to even seafood based stuff . We make a large diversity of gravy in the states.

Goat is pretty good, I wish it was more readily available.

Not many people eat tongue either. I miss cold tongue sandwiches on light rye.

Yeah thatís my big miss from being able to take a train into NYC pickled tongue deli sandwiches. You can get tongue in the south in more rural grocery stores. Iíve also gotten tongue and roasted head meat tacos in taquerias in rural areas with immigrant farm workers.

Is roasted head meat anything like head cheese?

No. Basically they roast the head for a long time and then pull the meat off the face / head. What I had was in a street taco.

Lamb got a bad rap historically in the states because there because period of time where it wasnít lamb it was mutton being sold as lamb at the grocers, and it wasnít even good mutton either. But that would have been like in the time of most of threads grandparents or great grandparents.

Does the crab just stumble into the noose, like it's not baited or anything? There must be a heck of a lot of crabs there. Do you mostly catch them by the pincers?

This thread is just confirming for me that I need to do a food tour of America.

Some people take a turkey neck and tie it to a thin rope. Throw the neck into the water, crab grabs turkey neck. Pull crab out of the water and put in bucket. Repeat until crab bucket is full. Used to watch kids do it when I lived in Baltimore.

Reading up on it it would appear to have been a thing for Norwegians back in the day;


I think you are missing something here; there are Norwegians and then there are Norwegians same for the Swedes, Finns and Germans.

The Midwest Scandinavian ethnic groups do a lot of things that the Scandinavians donít do anymore.

I mean Norwegians do things like eat lutefisk in WI and MI, thatís basically died out in Norway.

I grew up in Venice. Florida and old Florida especially has its charms. It also has its racism. For an interesting drive take 301 instead of 75 when driving up and down on the gulf coast.

If you do... Donít speed. Really.

I got married in a local park with a event building in Port Charlotte on the water. I grew up futzing around in a trailer park on the Myakka. The festivals and parades in Venice on the island are very Americana. I did so many flag ceremonies during parades growing up. The original planner for Venice island was John Nolan who was under Frederick Law Olmsted. I think Nolan also planned Longview, WA

"We have so much poo poo, just endless piles of it! this means we are really good at making the best poo poo" - yet another proof the American mindset makes making good cheese impossible.

The best beer and cheese and wine are coming from the US right now. And more cheaply and accessible than from Europe.

Hell beer and wine alone, WI by itself has got the whole of the continent beat.

I would have thought Wisconsin was on the cold side for wine production.

Ehh meant cheese.

There is a reason that WI has the best cheese too, CA and NY. The basing point for milk prices is Eau Claire. The further one is from Eau Claire the more ones milk sells for by law. CA and NY have never let this be changed and it would take a law to change.

So milk is cheaper to buy in WI but the farmers canít make as much money as farmers in CA and NY selling it. Hence the cheese value add.

Not knocking WI, just seems to be extremely archaic legal practice

1930ís it was a depression response. Milk prices collapsed and farmers were going bankrupt. Most of the milk over production was coming from WI. Hence doing the basing from there to discourage WI production. Then CA and NY just never let it be reversed.

There's the Australian Bakery Cafe in georgia where you can get authentic meatpies. We used to go in the summer and see shakespeare in the square in marietta square. They were always delicious and I had never had anything like them before, they also sold australian candy and soda. A lot of fanta flavors you couldn't get anywhere else besides australia I assume.

Can confirm good pies there. Savannah also has a kiss rear end pie shop: The Pie Society

When I think cruise ships, I don't think America.

As a matter of fact, don't most cruise lines specifically not set up shop in America for tax reasons? So it's more Americana to be a cruise line in a different country to avoid taxes than to be actual Americana.

Most of their real headquarters are in Florida. There is the nationality of the company, where the actual poo poo is run (Ft. Lauderdale for several of them ) and then the flag states of the vessels ( BAH, PAN, LBR, etc).

Must have been a drat fine cup of coffee there. Did they have pie, too?

Twedeís does have good coffee and pie. Lynch set Twin peaks in North Bend for a reason. When itís nice itís Elysium. Mountains on three sides. Blue sky, rivers meeting. Hint of weirdness. Herd of elk that occasionally passes right through town. CCC lodge turned into the community center on a nice park. Wide open and beautiful.

When itís not nice the clouds descend like a lid pushing down into a bowl. They swirl rapidly between the mountains (little si and big si). Eventually this goes all the way to ground and you canít see much other than your own house, alone trapped with only your immediate family.

Itís a weird place. Out walking once we met an old lady who insisted on blessing my children. There are long time residents who go by, Peg Leg, Long John Silver, Walking Man. Once walking along the river (like a baseballís throw from downtown) I saw a tall thin blonde woman bathing naked in the river. The head of Nintendo occasionally measures things around town when he visits the distribution center near town. You can find old signpost trees in the woods. About once a year the terrain or animals kill somebody hiking. And kids do die occasionally jumping off that railroad bridge.
