Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Not as grand as the rest of the culinary adventures here today but we made our own yogurt using our brand new machine! We do love some yogurt and the occasional Greek variant in the house and the kids suggested we make our own a while back. Just takes plenty of time to ferment - half a day if I remember right (although apparently normal according to this page). Was hesitant at first but we have money to spare, plus the family is happy so not regretting it.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I love yogurt but wife doesn't. I may try one of the methods in this link to make it, someday.

Hey Wooley, this is fantastic...I like yogurt a lot. I think I’ll try this starting off
with 2 cups of milk to test it out...I like the oven and the heating pan
method...Also, the crockpot one, doesn’t specify how many hours -3 or 4 hours -
what do you think?

If I wanted to make vanilla yogurt, do you think just adding a little splash
of vanilla extract would do it?

edit: just answered my own questions with this link that was part of your
original link.

And always keep some already homemade yogurt (the mother)
for making more yogurt.
Yogurt and milk is on my shopping list.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Thanks for bumping this up Joann. I'd forgotten all about it. Need to get my act together on this. I think we have a mutual friend on another forum that may like this.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I am having new/old adventure the last few days.

Digging around in the pantry I came across a bag or Morton Tender Quick. I used this in the past some, put it up and forgot about it.

Looked around in my favorites and found some info on using it so I thawed a couple slices of fresh picnic and applied the cure per instructions. In the frig for a couple hours then rinse and cook on my grill pan. They came out great, pink color all over except for grill marks and pink all the way though, juicy too but not rare, about medium with a mild cured taste.

I found a link to the Morton meat curing guide, there was a recipe for Canadian Bacon. Pulled a pork loin from the freezer and thawed. This morning I applied the cure per instructions and hopefully Saturday I'll have 4 1/2 lbs. of Canadian Bacon.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


That sounds good.
I was just down in my freezer getting a package of hamburger and found a pork rib roast. $4.90 for a 5.5 pound rack, always makes me feel good when I buy right. In the microwave now and will be in the oven in about an hour. Cool and rainy today, perfect day to use the oven. House is at 68 and I don't want to turn on the furnace.

Any thoughts on how to spice up this roast. I usually just season with basics and cook it. But it is a good day to try something new. no stores open so will need to use what is at hand.

And yes, keep this thread active, I always read.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Nice price Bud, about $0.90/lb. I paid $0.99/lb. for the one I used this morning.

I've no idea about seasoning that piece of meat other than just basic salt, pepper, maybe garlic powder. What about making slits and stuffing peeled garlic cloves in the slits?

On those boneless loins I was slicing them about an inch thick then freezing in packages of 2. Braise them as is or slice in half to 1/2" thick and pound to 1/4" or less. Do a three station coating, flour, egg, bread crumbs and pan fry for schnitzel. You get about 20 pieces of schnitzel, enough for several good meals and cheap to if you buy right.

I've no intention of letting this thread die. Just a whatcha cookin' today thread nothing special.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I've seen the garlic inserted on beef roasts and I do have some garlic so will try that. I also have some Bacon and may strap some on.

Doing some reading and thoughts include rice, diced tomatoes, and maybe my slow cooker.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Sounds like the beginnings of a plan.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I went basic, braised the pork rib roast in a large pot and then covered and simmered on top of stove. Turns out I don't have an oven rated pot deep enough for that size roast. I'll be picking up something soon. It came out perfect, tender and well seasoned. I pulled the roast out and made a nice gravy and treated myself to a couple of small potatoes nuked in the microwave. Lots of low salt butter and gravy over all, it went fast.

I've had a second similar meal yesterday and still plenty for another.

Today another treat, I have a "winter carnival casserole" in the oven with lots of cheddar cheese on top. I used to make this for the other household but their diets have changed so I get to eat it all, poor me.

Playing with my new toy I made Ancho chili powder from some dried chilies.

OK, what grinder did you get. Remember no pics didn't happen.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


I settled on this model as I loved the thought of detachable dishwasher safe SS bowls and a reasonable price point.


I'll have to use it a few more times to be sure but first impression is that I did okay. The inner lid and outer cover did make it a dust free experience.


I over pulsed the 2 garlic closes and made paste not minced but that is probably operator error.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Nice.

I have a couple Mr. Coffee grinders. Originally bought for coffee but also get used for spices occasionally.

Re: What is your culinary adventure today?


Ancho peppers and celery leaves are about the only 2 I plan on doing regularly though I may expand on that later. Grocery store prices for most spices are way out line.
