Canning tomatoes and I don't have citric acid

Yep. It's a wonder that mankind hasn't died off. And with all the carcinogens in grilled meats it's a damn miracle that the species is not extinct. Tort reform would go along way dispelling this type of BS.

Canning tomatoes and I don't have citric acid

Guess I've been missing it for over 50 years. My mother missed it for 50 years prior to that. My grandmother for 75 years prior to that. My great grandmother........ Maybe I should play the lottery.

Pork tenderloin - high or low heat roasting?

Always sear loin or tenderloin in a Cast iron skillet, and finish in a hot, hot oven. Only takes a jiffy to get to 140*
Love tenderloin on the grill in K-Bobs. Loin on the grill gets the hot, fast sear...off to the side to finish.

Cooking with Bourbon/JD

Nor do I. Nor do I drink the brown swill that is JD. :)

Cooking with Bourbon/JD

Whatever one calls it, it is nasty brown water, watered down to 80 proof. More akin to horse piss, than drinking whiskey I would imagine. ;)

What's for Dinner #286 - Spring has Sprung, but the Grass Ain't Riz Edition [through 3/27/14]

The little brown-eyed girl and I were torn between grilling chicken, pork or steak. We just couldn't decide.... So after a little Bourbon on the patio, it was all three! ~1/2 Chicken, 3 CS Ribs, and 1 Strip steak. Started the chicken first, then laid it by. Started the ribs, and laid them by. Lastly the strip steak quickly to medium rare. A baked sweet tator, sauteed squash, and green beans completed the meal. Am stuffed!!! With left overs. ~~~ Was a beautiful day in the neighborhood...Almost 80*. Broke ground in the garden, did some weed eating, and mowed some grass as well.

No clue right now except there will be 'Strawberry Short Cake'...A Sour Cream or Buttermilk Cake, Berries, and Whipped Cream on top. Asparagus more than likely.

Sources for andouille?

I've tried a lot of them. The vast majority good, but I always keep coming back to Wayne Jacobs in La Place for andouille. It rocks! ~ I am 100% addicted to his tasso as well. ~ The super market brands do not excite me at all.

Flour/Corn Meal Ratio When Frying

I was raised on White Lily or Martha White cornmeal on fish. So I would say 100% cornmeal.

I've tried the several commercial 'fish fry' (corn flour) products here locally.....they are OK by themselves...better if mixed 50/50 or more with cornmeal. Zatarain's is one popular label.

Currently I use cream meal, as do most restaurants, fish houses, etc here. Probably not an option for you however, unless you are a very serious fish frier.

If you are left with just flour and meal, do your best to find/use CORN flour...not wheat flour. Start with a 75/25 meal to flour blend and adjust accordingly to your taste.

I know of no one.. friends or relatives in Louisiana, or Mississippi that uses a batter to fry fish.

How do YOU make a meatloaf sandwich?

Made one today! Wow it was good!
Thick sliced, toasted on a griddle. Ciabatta was the bread of choice. Dressed with Kum Bak, and several dashes of home brewed "Tabasco" sauce.
