Golden-Brown or Golden-Yellow Fries

Recently I'm noticing how the colours of the fries affects our preferences.

McDonalds is never burnt and is always golden-yellow, while many other restaurants/fast food that serves fries offer golden-brown fries, such as New York Fries or Five Guys Burgers.

What do you prefer? Assuming they are the same crispiness exterior, fluffy interior, what do you prefer - golden yellow or golden brown fries?

Homemade french fries without a deep fryer, what's my best vessel?

Okay, now where to get Pectinex SP-L?

Is there a type of replacement of SP-L if we can't get it?

Cooking Fries in Tallow [split from Quebec]

Whygee:

How did it taste in terms of the 50/50 mix compared to 100% tallow?

Also, can you recommend or refer a wholesaler where I can ge the suet?

Thanks!

Beef Suet or Tallow?

Does anyone know where I can get large quantities of beef suet to render into tallow for deep frying? Or even better, tallow?

I know healthy butcher has them for retail in small quantities, I'm hoping to find large quantities that can be put in a large deep fryer (restaurant style fryers).

Reusing deep frying oil? What are "the rules"?

Do you know how many times lard can be reused?

For the non-asian: Have you ever tried/heard of Chinese Herbal Soup?

Haha... I know Chinese people use ginger and cook and boil it for sore throat...

Don't know how effective is the sugar in coke for sore throat, probably it boils down the sugar level?

Interesting! As far as I know, chinese people have it almost everyday as their daily diet. Although it will be used for healing sometimes (some soups are particularly for healing because of particular herbs), but most of them are for boosting immune system and just for overall daily nuitrition and sickness prevention.

I love to make chicken mushroom soup with white fungus! So delicious!

No not really... But North Americans might find it a little bitter than the usual diets.

The soups are more watery than the thick creamy soups accustomed to North Americans.

The purpose is to simmer and boil all the goodness out of the ingredients (including chicken and pork within the soup), and drink the healthy liquid soup.

It actually taste very good in my opinion, especially ones with chicken and carrot with a bunch of flavourful herbs such as longhan and red dates ... Yum!

If there's more education on it, would you think the taste would be bearable? I assume the herbs would be too strong for most North Americans.

Soups like ginseng chicken is very tasty to many Chinese (the more bitter the better!). But I can see how it might be too much for a majority of North Americans.

Probably the younger generation would be more acceptable to try.

Well you've heard about it because you lived in Asia for ten years.

I am assuming a lot north americans haven't even heard about it or its benefits. It is such a healthy diet I'm surprised not too many people heard about it.

So if you can buy it at grocery stores you would probably want to try making it your own too? I want to cook this myself and sourcing is the problem as well.

I'm wondering why this healthy traditional soup (which is part of chinese's diet for thousands of years), is not known in north america?

Is it because we lack the knowledge of it, or because the taste bud is totally different that it couldn't sustain any interest in it?

hmm...

This topic is for the non-asian out there.

I am looking for some basic research on the popularity level of Chinese herbal soup among North Americans.

Have you ever tried or heard of chinese herbal soup and their benefits? These soups have been in the chinese cuisine and culture for thousands of years and have proven (scientifically as well) that it is part of a healthy diet.

Soups such as chicken with red dates, Ginseng and other herbal ingredients.

Have you ever heard of or tried it? If yes, would you want to try making it at your own home?
