Mobile text size with new format

Exactly. I'm getting that too where some post titles are normal sized and some are tiny. In addition, within a thread I'm also seeing some replies in normal font and some really tiny. (And no, it's not just "old" ones that are tiny and "new" ones that are regular.)

Mobile text size with new format

The shading with correct size, yes. But if you notice in the first picture all fonts are super tiny. That's what people are noticing and asking to be fixed. Sometimes I'm getting the correct font (2nd pic) and sometimes I'm getting the very-difficult-to-read font (1st pic). Seemingly with no rhyme or reason.

Just did it again and seems to go back and forth. So I'll put 2 pix here to show the difference.

Horrible iPhone presentation

You know, since most people these days use their phones, that really doesn't make a whole lot of sense.

Horrible iPhone presentation

In addition, I noticed on another Site Talk thread that people are talking about an "i" next to board name as the new location of stickies. On my iPhone, I see no such "i" anywhere.

Horrible iPhone presentation

i agree. If the idea behind this (horrid) new design was to attract "millenials" as someone on another thread suggested, then they've done a piss poor job of it. Make sure the damn thing works for mobile users. But they haven't bothered to fix any of the problems that people have pointed out to them (ad nauseum) for months on iphones and other devices.

Introducing New Conversation Types

In addition, why would you spend time and money on this awful rollout but you still can't seem to fix the jumping screen loading problem?

Introducing New Conversation Types

I don't know if it's that the new format is simply that bad or that it happens to be worse in my phone. What a horrid visual! And seriously we're supposed to vote on people's answers? What happened to friendly conversation?! I'm not a tween. I don't vote that someone else's answer sucks and I don't heart things.

Sour/Tart Cherries - where to find them in Manhattan

Locust Grove farm had them last week (97th St green market). But they said that or this week would be the end of them. They said they had a bad season (they're upstate). I don't know about other farmers.

Glad to know the pickle crisp worked on the veggies. I hope it works on the rest too.

Could you post your sour cherry recipe? Thanks!

Caribbean Cookbook

I like the Naparima Girls Trinidad cookbook. But it's only Trini, not "Caribbean".

The advice about going to the library is a great idea! You could look at books from all different cuisines from the Caribbean.

Oh thank you all! Sometimes I think I don't know what I'm doing with my phone. I'm glad it's not me. :-)

And thanks to the team for checking it out!

Is there something going on with the site for iphone again?

Not sure it's just me or my phone. On the iphone I can see the main list of active discussions (the Chowhound button) and I can click on a thread from there and see all the replies, etc. But then when I click the board name to go to a specific board, like Manhattan or Site Talk, all I get is a blank page. I tried clicking from the main Chowhound active discussion page and I tried clicking from the My Boards list and I've tried clicking from the "return to Manhattan" when I successfully read a thread. All to no avail.

I went on my home computer to see if it was affected. But no. Seems fine.

Any thoughts anyone?
Thanks much.

What's the best recipe off a supermarket item label you have made recently?

Oatmeal Scotchies! One of my favorite cookies. The recipe is on the bag of Nestle butterscotch chips. So nice for those of us who hate raisins in our oatmeal cookies. :-)

I think most "refrigerator jam" lasts a couple of weeks. Maybe someone else can say whether you could freeze it (I've never tried that). Good luck!

The low sugar one made 5 1/2-pint jars. The blueberry lemon-verbena made 3 1/2-pint jars plus one tiny jar (I think they are 4 oz?).

I made a low sugar strawberry-blueberry-cherry jam that is tasty. Destined for my mom.

I also made a truly lovely blueberry lemon verbena compote. It's awesome. That will go on my list to make again. I should also remember to save a small jar for the farmer who saved me the bundle of fragrant lemon verbena.

iphone ads load slowly

This has been posted about before - the crazy jumpy nature of the loading. It's extremely annoying.

Like you, I've ended up resorting it and more recently clicking on the Breyers ad which takes up 1/2 the screen on the iPhone. It's absolutely ridiculous.

It would be great if they would fix this problem.

Not that I'm happy you're getting it ... but I'm glad it's not just me! ;-)

The powers that be here have never responded, unfortunately.

Strawberry Honey was definitely lovely. Also did Strawberry Margarita jam which tastes fantastic! So glad I tried that one!

Up next Mixed Berries. I've got a little strawberries leftover plus cherries and blueberries were at the farmers market too. Yay!
