OT; What are you eating / cooking part 419809

Par cook the potatoes first, then cool them fully (fridge temp). Then fry.

This avoids burning them while also achieving a) fully cooked potatoes that aren’t dried out and b) crispy skin.

Made some hot sauce today. It’s a bit thicker than sauce, more like a thin salsa.

Damn, I want one. My peppers aren’t producing like my cucumbers and tomatoes right now. I had some trees removed so maybe the extra sun will help next year.

To whom it may concern....... My index card says "Asian" cucumbers but I always kind of figured them to be "Japanese". What do I know though, I'm white.

-2 to 3 cucumbers of your choosing. Peeled and sliced. We love the Suyo long which happens to be a Japanese cuke. We also grow the burpless or English cukes but they aren't as great.
-3 peppers sliced like you did the cukes, thin. 2 banana peppers and one with a bit more zaz if you do 3 cukes.
-thin sliced onion of your choosing. I like the red ones because it's fancy pants. I slice them and cut them in quarter slices.

Put all that mess in a storage container and salt and stir it over night. We put black pepper in there as well and add more salt after it's stirred later. The next day drain all that water out so the ingredients don't get all washed out.

add this the next day

-1 tsp sesame seeds
-1 tsp honey
- quarter cup rice wine vinegar. (the garlic one is tits)
-3 to 5 drops of sesame oil
-quarter tsp red pepper flakes.

This is my favorite garden experience every year. Ive been eating these for 6 weeks now and it looks like only 2 left. I hope someone enjoys!

Instant Pot Chili Verde experiment. Medallion size pieces of Pork Butt on high heat for 50 minutes with these 3 ingredients in the Instant Pot:







I thought the flavor was a little light initially but after refrigeration it seasoned nicely and got strong positive reviews.

It's fine as long as you don't call them "Oriental". Because that would make you like 80 years old.

The apple sauce and pudding were the best part... Bronte private msg quote post Address this user
@EbayMafia

Why?

I thought Asian references proper nouns where as oriental was common nouns?

@Bronte I don't know. I just know it gets awkward whenever some old white person says "Oriental" at the golf course. You are probably right though.

Yeah, I can see your point. Old people have a very relaxed view of stereotypes and how the words they choose can be offensive but be oblivious to it.

But I was actually thinking of something my sister told me and I typed it down wrong initially.

She mentioned Asian refers to people. Vs oriental refers to objects. No idea if she is right or wrong, but she is one of those smarty pants folks. She was accepted to Harvard for her masters and decided against it.

Interesting, I bet she is correct. Just did a little digging and also learned the word "orient" comes from the sunrise, which is in the East. So, I guess when you "orient" yourself directionally, you figure out where the sun rose and then you know east from west.

The term "Orient" derives from the Latin word oriens meaning "east" (lit. "rising" < orior " rise". The use of the word for "rising" to refer to the east (where the sun rises)

Today is my birthday, so I picked dinner: smoked a tri-tip and a pork loin roast over pecan wood; sides are loaded baked potato and Brussels sprouts; washing everything down with Cuba Libre' made with black rum.

You guys’ pepper hauls are way better than mine. I did pick another small haul today though. I’ll just keep saving them up and get them off the plants.

Also, if canning isn’t efficient and is a pain in the bum for you, like it is me, I have a hack.

For the past four years we have done a freezing method for canned tomatoes.
