Nocino - green walnut liqueur

I used white wine for mine.

We also found a "nocinohattan" to be pretty tasty.

HELP... fingers are burning from cutting jalapenos. Remedies?

Bacon fat. My BFF burned her hands making chili; we found this thread and tried cold water, hot water, olive oil. . . Nothing. Then she started pulling bacon apart, and asked me to let you all know that she has finally found relief.

Beehive Market - Berkeley (Saturdays)

Did they close down already? We tried to go a couple of weeks ago, and there was no one there, and the website is kaput. :(

Where to buy Rennet / Citric Acid Powder?

How about cheese making supply stores? I'd love to be able to buy molds and cheese cloth and wax and cultures and all that somewhere locally instead of having to order online. . .


Hi all -
I am an incredibly lazy person and a terrible baker. . .anyone know of any local SF bakeries that might sell me a nice big sheet of genoise?

Nocino - green walnut liqueur

I'm gearing up to start on nocino & vin de noix tomorrow. I got my walnuts from Jim Haag as well.
Do we have to soak the nuts? Good lord, I didn't leave enough time for that!

Where to purchase verjus in San Francisco?

Thanks gang - I picked up the Aussie stuff at Andronico's in SF last weekend. I didn't end up making the dish I had planned so I haven't used it yet, but I did give it a taste and I think it'll end up working for my needs.
Much appreciated!

Thanks! I didn't even think to check Andronico's.

Where to purchase verjus in San Francisco?

I see that I can order online from Terra Sonoma, but has anyone come across verjus in the city in any stores? I haven't been able to find it at Williams-Sonoma or Sur La Table.

Thanks for any leads!
