so how do yall clean your cast iron anyhoo

dish soap, water, a sponge with a scrubber pad on it, steel wool if really needed. pat it dry then throw it on the burner and heat it up to evaporate any remaining moisture. if im feeling frisky ill wipe on a thin layer of oil with a paper towel as it heats up

i do all of the above for my carbon steel wok too

we used to trawl the creek with a big net for crawdads

edit: does crayfish refer to saltwater or freshwater species where you are?

freshwater

the story is they were rare in china until the american military started airdropping them into fields to try to disrupt local agriculture, decades ago, but chinese people just started eating them. i have no idea if thatís accurate but several different people here have told me the same story

parachuting crawfish into rice paddies sounds a wee bit suspicious to put it mildly, but they were introduced during WWII

huh yeah, so they are american crayfish and weíre introduced by japan during the war? i never really thought the american airdropping thing made sense but i can see how that story evolved i guess

and this video doesnít really get into it but i also could see japan trying to introduce an invasive species with the intent of disrupting agriculture during the war

it's fake in that most of the people who talk about what is "authentic" has no business determining authenticity. when people with some standing talk about the same kind of thing they use phrases like "at my house we always..." instead.

well, i feel pretty comfortable in saying the "cantonese vegetables" at the local chinese restaurant in my hometown in maine are Not Authentic. as in, theyre completely unlike any way ive ever seen vegetables prepared in Canton, which is where ive lived for over a decade now. i also feel pretty confident in saying the lukewarm canned tuna and carrots rolled in plain white rice and nori i had, also in maine, is not authentic sushi. and neither is the spaghetti and meatballs i had in a cafe in china which used literal ketchup as the tomato sauce. i know spaghetti and meatballs isn't necessarily an authentic italian dish, but what they served me in that cafe in china isn't authentic to whatever spaghetti and meatballs really are. i could go on but you get the point.

yeah but that is more Ďit is poo pooí rather than Ďit is not authenticí

no its not. the cantonese vegetables i mentioned were totally fine, there wasnt anything wrong with them, and if they were called something else i wouldnt have a complaint really. the other two i mentioned were bad but thats not why they were inauthentic representations of the dish they were trying to be.

thanks all

itís my standard lean white bread dough. i use it for all sorts of simple bread.

100% flour
65% water
3% salt
couple of grams of yeast (if you really need an amount letís say 1%)

knead, either mechanically or by hand until the dough is smooth and tacky without being sticky and leaving residue on your hands. roll into a tight ball and ferment it for a couple of hours.

if you donít like to fuss with kneading, stir all the ingredients together until combined and thereís no visible dry flour. put in an airtight bowl in the fridge for 24h. take it out, let it warm up, then roll into a ball and proceed as above.

thabks. what could i sub in for the flour because my wife doesnt eat grains. thanks in advance
