I have one of these and it is very good. It is probably my favourite kitchen tool. my wife doesn't get it

its great for scraping poo poo into neat piles and transferring stuff from eg a chopping board to the pan. its good

looks like a knife


I like cleaver style knifes. ďchefsĒ knives can eat poo poo as far as I am concerned

Gentle Autist posted:

i know the internet thinks cast iron is so great for some reason but its really not as good as just a good quality stainless steel pan (i have high-sided cuisinart pans and they are good)

they are annoying to clean and all the 'seasoning' poo poo is not worth the effort. and yes I am dumb and annoying but that doesn't detract from my point

the reality is I manage to cook without loving up food much better on a cast iron than the stainless steel pan I also have. still fat? yep

Cat Face Joe posted:

fart simpson posted:

get yourself one of these imo



yep this is the poo poo

mine is less intense. like this :




lol a supermarket in nz did a thing collect stamps get knives and I got 4 of those. some people complain they donít keep their edge for long but theyíre fine and the benefit of that is that sharpening is super fast and cos all metal, nothing to break down. iíll have these forever


what food do i cook? oh poo poo i donít normally bother for myself. cook for my kids. tonight i donít have kids so iíll get kfc probably because idgaf about life lmao

Now that Iíve got a decent grain storage setup in the cellar Iím back to just milling my own wheat as needed. Got a bread starter going again and it seems pretty healthy now, wonít be long Ďtil Iím making fresh bread from scratch on the reg :yum:

Been making my own cultured butter and buttermilk for well over a year now and highly recommend it, the smell alone is amazing.

* 1 quart of heavy whipping cream divided into 3 mason jars
* 1 tbsp of kefir in each, cheese cloth secured on top
* set on counter for about 3 days or so, smelling them occasionally (if itís gone sideways itís pretty obvious)
* everything combined into a stand mixer bowl, making sure to get as much as the solid bits as possible
* mix on a slow speed in the mixer with a whisk attachment and a towel covering things, there will be splashing
* mix until said splashing occurs, indicating that solids have separated
* pour everything into another bowl covered in a straining bag, such that the bag holds all the solids
* strain whatever liquids out that you can, into the bowl. This is your buttermilk! Should be about a pint
* put the solids into a cold metal bowl and cover with ice cold water
* knead the solids like dough, the water should get milky
* pour out the water and replace it with some more ice cold water
* knead some more, repeating the cold water replacement until the water no longer gets milky when you knead
* voila! These solids are your fresh cultured butter batch. I wind up with about a pound I think but thatís just a guess

For the buttermilk Iíll usually do one of two things:
* a loaf of buttermilk soda bread (donít have the recipe memorized just yet but can post it later)
* chill the buttermilk in the fridge overnight, then add a tiny bit of vanilla extract, some citrus zest, and a few tbsp of sugar to make a sweet warm weather snack

its not a knife cos itís not sharp, the edge is square. they are also known as dough knives which is annoying but they are used in commercial kitchens o think to help with scooping up dough then quickly cutting it into smaller loaves/buns

i got the idea after seeing them in use on bake off

I know those as ďbench scrapersĒ, dunno if itís a US English term specifically or not. Supper essential if youíre doing a high-hydration bread and the doughís all goopy and tacky

thinking about an instant pot
instant pot or other quality pressure cooker is a really good thing if you like to make curries/stews etc. we also keep and use a rice cooker for multi-lane drifting

pressureluck.com is a recipe site i can attest to. otherwise be careful of online ip recipes some of them are very wack and outdated. you don't want that burn indicator to trip

you can use tvp, finely chopped nuts, beans, or some combination of the above to replace the meat.

the absolute biggest thing you can do to make a good chili is to grind your chili powder fresh by buying good dried chiles and whole cumin.
