Santoku knife- What do you use for that you wouldn't use a chef knife?

Yeah, it's obvious they are confused and talking about a usuba

Does wasabi powder go bad?

It does need to sit and develop.

Sous Vide Steak seared by Deeping Frying

I rarely do this but it works well. I don't have a deep fryer and the thought of heating up a pot of oil for a quick dip is more than I care to do. A shallow fry, maybe. Usually I just sear in a raging hot cast iron skillet but go for. It works well

Whole mess of greens in my CSA box

Lucky you! Greens are so good. Soups have been mentioned but you are low on stock. I love to simply braise the greens with a little onion, maybe garlic and a little water, s/p and let them make their own pot liquor as they cook down. I like to finely slice the stems as well and will start those first with the aromatics before adding the greens. And yes a little acid at the end can really brighten the dish

Best technique for thinly sliced roast beef...

Freezing can change the texture of the meat

Strawberries have no flavor anymore. Agree or disagree?

The last time I went to the Strawberry festival in Plant City the strawbs weren't that great. Are they keeping the good ones all for themselves?

Wild Fields Market Place coming to Palm Harbor

They were there in the same location before as Harr's Surf and Turf which was also a Surf and Turf in Belleair. When surf and turf went south due to a groupon promotion they could not sustain the Belleair market changed to Wild Fields. Same concept, different name. Glad to see them back. It was sad to see them fall so hard. The quality not prices just went down the tubes when they had that groupon contract.

No chicken or any other stock on hand. Substitution ideas?

Here's a tip for the skin. I just pulled skin from turkey legs and thighs that was cooked sous vide for 8 hrs/160. The skin was put between parchment on a cookie sheet and weighted with a cast iron skillet and baked at 400 until brown and very crispy. Turkey skin tuiles

Help! How many jiggers in an ounce, or vice versa?

Have you had unadulterated rums with no added sugar, flavorings or glycerin?

What brand of cachaca do you recommend?

Oronoco is not a straight cachaca. It's mixed with aged rums

Kitchen cabinets-quote that almost gave me a heart attack!

We saw a friends new kitchen. The cabinets were from IKEA, looked great, functioned better than ours and was a fraction of the cost

Ants in kitchen--Four methods have not worked! Help!

The problem with toxic on contact to ant products is that they secrete pheromones to tell the queen to step up the baby production. Killing the queen is the quest

Bailey's Irish Cream has solidified - can it be salvaged for baking?

It ain't going to kill ya and if it wasn't sour and you tolerated the chunks I see no health problems. My cuz has an opened bottle in his beach condo out in the open and it has not separated or gone off. Been there for a few years without issue

1955 crown royal

But the grains were different back then so even though it might not age in the bottle, the taste of a 1950s spirit may taste different than it's current version. Could be better but could be worse especially if oxidation wasn't kind. Crown is a blended whiskey that uses neutral spirits in the blend as well as colorings and flavoring unlike a blend of straight whiskies

How do I freeze pulled pork without ruining the texture and/or flavor. Also how do I defrost it correctly?

Vacuum sealed is the best. Other than that wrap well with plastic wrap and or foil and but in a zip bag getting as much air out as possible

Sous Vide Hamburgers

But during the cooking time you are not tied to monitoring the progress. Use that time to prepre other parts of the meal, enjoy quality time with your significant other or make a drink and relax. The actual active time you're cooking is very short
