Substitute for whitefish in gefilte fish recipe

Gefilte fish can be made with any fish. Whitefish is common because it was available, mild and inexpensive to those in Eastern Europe

If you can't get whitefish try something else.

I've made it with our local fish of snapper and grouper. Also tried mixing in some salmon which made it pink but it tasted good and looked pretty. Let's be honest any homemade is going to be way better then the jar stuff unless you screw it up

Ran vinegar through my Keurig coffee maker and can't get rid of the smell

That's why I descale with citric acid

First time smoking and making a brisket

225-300 and cook to an internal of 195-225 or until you can poke it with a wooden skewer and get little resistance. When it goes in like butter it's done

Trying to get into rum...

I agree. Taste them on their own first.

At 90 proof and with all that sugar it's like drinking soda pop

Which Coffeemaker to buy - Done with Keurig

I bet those 95% of consumers spend more than $300 on junk food and other junk. In the long run $300 is not too expensive and represents maybe a month or two of Starburcks coffee.

How can I intensify the lemon flavor in a dish without added so much lemon juice that the dish seems watered down?

Well I guess citric acid is derived from lemons

Date.... ordering seafood?

My wife didn't eat any fish when we met. Bad fish memories from her mom's cooking.

We became good friends and I cooked for her and introduced her to non cat food fish

I started her on poached fish and we've worked up from there. Now many years later fish is what she would prefer to eat over other proteins.

Citric acid is the first ingredient in TrueLemon. It is not just dehydrated lemon juice.

Risotto still too grainy….what do you suggest?

Restaurants aren't so good at it as well. Had my share of crunchy risottos and will rarely order it out.

Will have to check out carnaroli

Just got a Sansaire (sous vide machine)! What should I cook?

You can use zip bags and the displacement method to seal

cow intestines

Yeah I had to clean away a lot of fat. But the resultant meat was good. But it had been my only access to beef cheeks

Tripe is not intestines though

Walmart by me has decreased their RUMBA products. I was getting beef cheeks at one time

Any alternatives to FoodSaver?

I've considered the vp112 but it's so big and heavy. It would take up a lot of real estate in my kitchen.

How often do you drink alcoholic drinks?

Too often. A little nip of something daily. 1.5 oz of a spirit/day is considered moderate drinking with health benefits per medical articles. Too often I exceed that limit.

Supermarket pricing.......can someone explain this to me?

Same here. I know in Georgia it's also standard for Publix to give half off if you only buy one. Not sure why they don't do it in Fla, their home base

Pretty sure if you take it back after the sale without a receipt it is

Supermarket pricing.......can someone explain this to me?

Not in our area Veggo. In Alabama where my MIL shops it's standard practice but I've asked and they don't do it here. Maybe if you push them hard enough

Bone in Leg of Lamb - First time here...

If it's in cryo I can see wet aging it, if not don't do it.

I like a leg of lamb but realize there are many different muscle groups in there. Some do better at rare than others

Eating a Stradivarius?

Blind tastings can be very revealing and keeps it honest

Do it often with bourbon and cigars.
