    So thread what are the thoughts on Pullman loaf pans?

    I've seen some very nice sandwich bread made in Pullman loaf pans. If that's what you're going for then they work very well for the task.

    Yes. I would be seeking it for sandwich breads for the size consistency.

    I have one. Makes pleasingly square bread with a bit thicker crust than my regular loaf pan.

    Any recommendations on a pan? I got a chunk of credit on Amazon.

    I went with USA Pan, because I really like their bakeware in general. Very smooth and heavy enough to bake evenly, and my regular loaf pans still wipe clean after years of regular use.

    It's a little weird that the big pan is currently cheaper than the small pan, but really take out a tape measure and consider your bread needs. A 14-inch loaf is a comically long bread cube.

    I just went out and picked a few cups of blackberries for blackberry cobbler tonight. While I hate the plants themselves I do love blackberry season in general.

    I do love our state fruit. Not the brambles, just the fruit.

    When I was a boy, we lived at the end of a country lane that was lined on one side with (never-sprayed) bushes. My brothers and I would go out and fill a big metal mixing bowl, and that was on a "one for me, one for the bowl" basis.

    Hey @ Xaquin i just bought a little under a pound of maitake mushrooms from the farmers market, and I’ve never cooked them before - any recommendations?

    My first instinct is pizza but I’m open to other ideas

    Mushroom pizza is amazing. There's a place near me that does a 5 mushroom pie with a mushroom sauce.

    mushrooms are so good

    I have a very uh, witch-y friend who lives further out in the boonies, and sometimes she'll text us like "I've been foraging and I'm gonna make some food out of things I found in the woods, hmu"

    she has yet to poison/kill us

    Man, having just rewatched Fury Road a couple days ago, that mushroom looks like one of their tumor masses.

    I'm guessing this was an intentional stylistic choice, tbh.

    start with the ones that are easy to identify and you're good

    chicken of the woods, maitake, and most chanterelles are pretty easy to ID correctly

    I once recommended the chicken tinga to my mom at a restaurant we were at, and when the waitress showed up she ordered "chicken chinga". The waitress almost managed to keep her shit together enough not to laugh, and my mom had absolutely no idea she just told our waitress to fuck a chicken.

    Cooking thread, I have recently come into ownership of a few Carolina Reaper and Super Chili peppers. Would it be better for me to try to cut and dehydrate these and turn them into a fine spice powder, or to just freeze em and chop em up/use em when I need them (most likely for chili)

  • pimentopimento she/they/pim Registered User regular
    I'd freeze em.

    Cut into bite pieces and marinade in some lime juice and tandoori masaala

    Broil, grill, or flash-fry in a pan with a very little oil

    Combine into a wholemeal wrap with some salad and a squeeze of fresh lime juice, or eat with brown rice and vegetables. Goes really nicely with some garlicky yoghurt as a sauce. Low fat yoghurt is fine! Either way, the whole combo is high in flavour, fibre, vitamins and low in fat and high GI carbs.

    Given how hot they are if you do decide to dehydrate and blend them you would have to be super super careful to make sure you don't accidentally mace yourself with airborne chilli particles in the process.

  • PinfeldorfPinfeldorf Realtor Santa ClaritaRegistered User regular
    Yeah like, I like hot sauce, but I have no need for anything hotter than a medium habanero or scotch bonnet. After handling something like that you have to be extremely diligent in washing your hands (or just wear gloves) or you end up giving yourself a bad case of hot cock.

    The one time I managed to grow a bumper crop of super-hot jalapenos, I spent about an hour dicing and freezing them and the rest of the day soaking my hands in milk and cursing god.

    Have you considered swim goggles?

    (I'm only half joking. Proper safety goggles might be better.)

    It usually happens after I'm done with the chillies and have washed my hands, I'm really careful while in the actual process. Just washing them doesn't ever seem to make my hands no longer dangerous.

    I do need some goggles for onions though. I hate chopping onions, my eyes always react so badly.

    For peppers and such, I wear nitrile gloves any time I have to use my hands to directly handle them. With onions you can either wet your cutting surface, or fill a shallow bowl or a plate with water next to where you're cutting them. The spores that get all up in your tears ducts and make you go abloo bloo bloo are "attracted" to moisture, so giving them an alternative target closet the the release of the spores usually helps.

    According to J Kenji Lopez-Alt, the trick to not tearing up when you cut onions is to have a knife so sharp it makes a Hanzo sword look like a stick.

  • Brovid HasselsmofBrovid Hasselsmof [Growling historic on the fury road] Registered User regular
    Yeah actually when I first got the knife Brolo sent me for Satan's onions weren't so bad but they've got worse recently, I guess that means I need to sharpen it.

    And gloves are a great idea for chillies, we've probably got loads around as well that we bought at the start of covid. I'm so dumb I never think of these things.

    Oh yeah a sharp knife helps a ton too, so you don't use more force and crush the onion, which makes them "bleed" more. That reminds me I need to buy a good steel for my chef's knife, it's getting a little dull.

    The other option for onions is to cool them down a bit in the fridge as well.

    I very rarely bother with that unless I am cutting a few kilos.

    Often though I’ll place my cutting board on the stove and turn on the extractor.

    I've found the water thing does work. I often wet down my arms and it seems to help. But I never think to do it until I'm already blind and crying.
