Pickle Juice - How Do You Use It

Sometimes I use it for marinades and for pickling other veggies like carrots, celery and cauliflower.

14 pound low-and-slow prime rib cooking time

I'd estimate, assuming it's at room temp before going in the oven, about 2-2.5 hours.

Pickle Juice - How Do You Use It

As we get close to New Years Celebrations I wonder, How do you use different types of pickle juice.

I've used pickle juice in martini's, tuna salad, added to salad dressings, in cole slaw etc.

What do you use it for.

Do you drink it straight up.

14 pound low-and-slow prime rib cooking time

Don't time, ovens vary greatly in accuracy. Use a probe thermometer, placing the probe top center about half way in the roast. Cook till 115-120F, take out foil tent and let rest for 20 min. Carry over will bring it to about 130-140F, prefect rare in the center and med rare at the ends.

naked condiments

I like to eat salsa's out of the jar with a spoon. Peanut butter is also spooned out of the jar but, I have to be in the right mood. Bread & Butter Sweet pickles right out of the jar, like candy. Cherry peppers, pepperoncini, olives etc, all good.

Christmas Dinner Highlights and Lowlifes

If she had a good time with your family and left full of great food and happy, good enough. Maybe someday she'll entertain and have a MF as a guest.

Seafood lasagna?

If your sauce is a b├ęchamel type which is slightly thick and you're using precooked seafood like lobster, shrimp and crab it should freeze without being watery. Try a single test batch before investing big bucks.

Tea without Sugar?

I drink tea straight up. Nothing but TEA! Maybe first try a flavored tea, say some type of lemon, they're usually very mild. I also drink coffee black.

Prime Rib Extraordinaire

I have a friend that uses that method and it does work well.

I use a probe thermometer and cook till internal is 115F, remove and tent, it will reach 125-130F, perfect. The reason I use this method is that it's all about the temp, not the variable of the oven or the size of the roast. I'd be lost without that thermometer.

Dinner Party Additions & a Roast

Figure a third pound per person as there will be other main items, lasagna etc. If you have a probe thermometer, roast till 115-118F, remove and tent for 20 mins, it'll be a nice med rare on the middle and med at the ends.

Roasted pork. We have pounds leftover.

Stew, also makes a great pot pie. Cubano sandwich! Cube it up and simmer to make a bolognese sauce.

A top sirloin roast may fit your budget. The cut is very flavorful and tender when done med-rare.

Dry age trimming question - hoping someone sees this by tomorrow

So they dry aged individual steaks and not the whole primal then cut your steaks. Wrong, just wrong. I'd say that butcher shop is one to avoid.

Best Canned Tuna in Boston Area?

Lately, I've been using Costco Skipack light tuna in water at about $2.00 a can. It's free school caught and species specific. Excellent flavor, I make it with good EVOO.

Can leftover spinach artichoke dip be frozen?

The frozen ice crystals will change the texture. Got any friends/neighbors that like it.

Air popped popcorn stale right after popping?

Soggy or chewy popcorn usually indicates the heat of the air popper is not getting hot enough. Personally, I think air poppers produce tasteless popcorn. As a test, try a batch the old fashioned way using hot oil in a deep pan.

Help Me Understand Espresso Brewing?

Expresso is brewed under pressure using a finely ground coffee. Chemex is a drip method. Totally different animal. I'm sure it tasted horrible and was muddy. I hope it didn't spoil your desire for expresso. Expresso machines range from $15.00 for a small stove top model, which make good expresso, to about $1K for a self contained unit with a milk frother.

Costco returns?

I agree, I always look carefully and packages that are hard to see in to.

Costco returns?

All raspberries are very perishable, you have to look carefully at the best by date and eat within a few days. Nothing to do with being cheap. Most come from Driscoll Farms and can be found at Costco and many super market chains like WF, TJ, etc.

As in most states, same for tobacco products, no returns.
