    Fuck, did I miss kangaroo chat? I tend to eat a shitload of roo because we have to shoot them every now and again and I refuse to just let the meat go to waste.

    If it's a big old male, I usually make a curry, casserole or stew with them. Chances are if you're buying it from a shop it will be much better quality.

    I'm a big fan of roo skewers (kebobs? I dunno what you guys call meat on a stick). It's basically the meat in 2cm-3cm cubes, salt, pepper, rosemary, bay leaves and olive oil. I generally like my meat rare and roo can be eaten nice and red so my skewers go on a moderate to high heat until they're nice and brown.

  • ReginaldReginald Registered User regular
    Why do you have to shoot the roo? So they don't eat all of the grass?

  • TefTef Registered User regular
    Yeah, eating crops is part of it but probably the more destructive thing they do is laying in it, believe it or not. A mob of roos will trample a lot of crop if they're left to hang out there.

    When I was a kid I was obsessed with Przewalski's Horses, which started my obsession with going to Mongolia, which I still have.

    I live closer than ever but the flights are so flippin expensive

    There are. In fact, at the time, the longest fence in the world was built from one end of the country to the other to keep them at bay and the government also intentionally released a potent virus to thin their ranks.

  • Blake TBlake T Registered User regular
    It doesn't go from one end to the other! It just goes across WA.

    Dave you are both late and filled with misinformation.

    Guys, guys, leave poor #pipe alone. He's just getting a bit confused, because our state (the best state) is so ridiculously enormous.

    i need to do something with all of these eggs
    i am thinking i will pickle several dozen

    I play games on ps3 and ps4. My PSN is DouglasDanger.
  • ReginaldReginald Registered User regular
    Here's what I would do: Hard boil the eggs and drop them in pickled beet juice for a few hours (3~4).

    Then take them out and make deviled eggs out of em, with whatever deviled eggs recipe you like. I like my deviled eggs with a bit of bacon in the yolk.

    Eat em with a martini and enjoy.

    Shit, i didnt know the food thread came back. Well ill have something to read at work for the next few weeks.

    Okay, i got an easy reciepe request for you guys.

    Shoestring Onion rings.

    I'm not talking about the cheap ass resturant style mostly batter rings, I mean the delicious crispy, ever so lightly battered things that go on hamburgers and look like there exists an onion so small and perfect that its rings fit onto a pinky finger.

    I love onion rings done right but ive always been of the opinion that if you bite into an onion ring, and manage to pull the entire onion out of the fried part leaving only a calorie laden empty shell of carbs then your doing it wrong. you should be able to take a bite, and the onion be crisp enough to break evenly and the shell more of a coating then a thick covering. perfectly seasoned.

    What are the best onions for this? is buttermilk mandatory? do you need to pre-soak and what seasoning do you use.

    Maybe I should pickle some eggs, our chickens have gone crazy and layed like million of the things, anybody have a recipe they like ? Also does anybody else have trouble peeling hard boiled eggs ? I am literally incapable of removing the shell without mangling the egg into some hideous monstrosity.

    while still piping hot, drop them into icy water, fish it out and it should come off easily.

    The main thing that makes an egg easier to peel is some age. Older eggs peel easier, and are harder to make fried eggs with, the yolk is more likely to break on you and you get less of that thick white (it converts to thin white). Aside from that, I really like cracking the egg a bit, then rolling it under my hand on a cutting board, tends to help the whole membrane get loose so you can get good chunks of peel at at time. Failing that, just cut the damn thing in half and THEN peel it, just be careful to get the little bits you may have left around the edge.

    So I am 90% moved into my new place. The house is right next to a whole foods, a great taqueria, a cajun butcher, a church's chicken, a chicago hot dog place, and an award winning BBQ joint.

    That'll do pig. That'll do.

    Where are you Stale? a cajun butcher? odd unless your in the south but a chicago hotdog place next door is confusing me.

    Also, im curious. Does your Cajun butcher sell Pickled Pork? This is something i have to smuggle back in my luggage with me whenever i visit my family in Louisiana. I cannot find it up here in the Cleveland area. They always think im talking about salt pork and pretend they have never heard of pickled pork. My mother used it in many things...white beans, green pea soup, etc.

    Marietta, GA just outside of Atlanta Metro proper.

    The chicago place is pretty good. There are a half dozen chicago-style places down here, most suck.

    And yes they do. They also ship. http://www.cajunmeatcompany.com/

    Holy shit. A de-boned stuffed pig...good god I want this. Looking for local cajun butchers in Portland, not suprisingly, brings up zilch though. It would be awesome to roll up to a day bbq with one of those ready for cooking. Stale, your link tortures me.

    So yesterday when I got home I made bourbon butter pecan ice cream, sour mix for our margaritas, and annatto rice. I also made the base for mint-chocolate chip ice cream using mint from our school's garden annnnd then my ice cream maker wasn't refrozen enough by this morning so there is just a pot of base sitting in my fridge.

    Which is doubly disappointing because the base tastes great and now there's not enough ice cream to serve all the party-goers.
