Mutt and Jeff's Slaw Dog

Tallahassee, in the '50's. Father in law got a little misty eyed talking about leaving for lunch in a '38 Roadster, with 8-9 other high schoolers literally piling on the vehicle, with less than a half an hour for a coke, and a 10 cent Slaw Dog. Anybody making anything that's similar these days around there ? Thanx

Frozen veal bones

Defrost so you can get them in the pot. Since they were frozen, bring them to a boil once, drain, then start the stock. Add 2 parts onions, 1 part carrots, 1 part celery, herbs,... half way through the simmer. The flavor will get 'tired' if added in the beginning. 24 hrs later, strain through sieve, simmer/reduce, strain through double cheese cloth, simmer/reduce, ect... My 2 pots after three days, veal glace, refrigerated, usually' looks like cold hard jello. It is a labor of love...

Pork rib membrane - remove or not?

Some 'silver skin' dissolves in heat and is a non-issue. Rack 'skin' holds the ribs together, keeps the guts in place,...it ain't cooking away. IMO

Carne de Cerdo Iberico de Bellota

Received this frozen, 1 lb. 'steak' from La Tienda as a Xmas gift from wife. How would el cocinar en la carnicerĂ­a do it justice ?

Chili Is a Local Specialty With a Specific History. Beans Are Not Part of That History.

My wife was preparing the roast for the family reunion. She cut the end of the roast off before seasoning it and placed it in the pan. I asked her why she cut it off, she replied that's what her mother did. Mother came in and said that's what her mother did. Granny arrived and when she was asked, she said it was because the roast was too long...
Beans are a simple way to stretch out a 'meat stew'. and "If I owned both hell and Texas...."

Best/worst Thanksgiving ever...

I think my best Turkey Day was when this guy came to the prepared foods counter Thanksgiving afternoon complaining to me of a deformed turkey. He unwrapped a cooked bird, with the spine all hacked up. His wife asked him to carve it, and he tried, but couldn't find those breasts....

Can you smoke a corned beef?

that looks totally insane. I have access to a similar smoker....

Cornesh Pasty in LA?

Ezekiel Bread

Looked up where to purchase Ezekiel 4:9 Bread around College Park. "Most" places have Food for Life items in the freezer, but Fresh Market/Annapolis sold it on the shelf in a plain wrapper with a paper label inside. Totally different packaging; does FM bake their own ?

Why cook yoghurt?

Don't think of it like broken milk or cream. "We" have been cooking with yogurt ever since "we've" been milking goats.

Indian Pickles in Saveur

In the latest issue of Saveur, there is a full page on pickles. In the fourth column, third row, the 'condiment' resembles something I was served at an Indian joint on M street in DC many years ago. All I could afford was a bowl of onion soup, and with it came 'flat' bread and a monkey dish of this pickle. It was kind of harsh (read: full flavored) only because I was unaccustomed to it. I devoured it. Any thoughts ?

Favorite oyster recipes?

Make a large (lump)charcoal fire. Dump oysters on grates. If right handed; canvas glove on left, cheap dull dinner knife on right. Grill till PARTIALLY open. Pry open, (add 1 DROP favorite condiment), consume. Repeat, and often, till done.
Make another fire, repeat.

Summer veggie dish for a crowd?

Did a version of ratatouille- fired up the charcoal grill and did a simple french vinaigrette, marinated: 1 radicchio quartered, 1 med. thick sliced eggplant, 1 zucchini and yellow squash sliced length wise and cored, 2 bunches scallions. Grilled them fairly well. Let rest, then sliced and/or cubed. Toss with; 1 yellow beet(trimmed and sliced)and 1 pint cherry tomatoes(oven roasted together 1 hour), 2 T. toasted slivered almonds, 1-2 T. chop 'fines herbs' and a couple smashed garlic cloves. S/P. Into a LIGHTLY oiled Pyrex, bake 45-60 minutes and serve. The next day, chopped up the cold leftovers, spread on a baguette, and a little parm and toasted. Insane...
