Bar Harbor area lobster pounds?

I live summers in the area. On the island, I would go to Beal's or Thurston's, both are on the water. Trenton Bridge is right on a busy highway. If you want to drive a wee bit, Ruth and Wimpey's, in Hancock and especially Tracey's (BYOB) are MUCH better value. Both, however are located on busy Rt. 1.

Maine Lobster or Spiny Lobster?

To split hairs, spiny lobsters are of the the genus paniarius (sp?) and Maine and north Atlantic lobsters homerus. I query if the spiny lobster is truly a lobster. So goes Maine so goes the nation!

What's your summer guilty pleasure?

I seldom eat deep fried food. But while back in Maine for the summer, I gorge on on deep fried full-bellied clams, haddock, and scallops. Lobster and crab rolls, loaded w/ mayo too.

Beef stew meat - suggestions other than beef stew?

And now for something completely different. Grind fine for steak tatar or slice thinly for capaccio.
Steak and kidney pie?

What fast food do you eat rarely, but that first bite think "Wow, this is so good!"

Mystery fish. Pollack is even too expensive.

Lobster Rolls at McDonald's, in Maine. Especially when I'm living in New Mexico!

Best Sandwich in the World

Saltenas are Bolivia's legal drug. More of a pastie than a sandwich, found only in Bolivia and a few major cities, it is the single food I miss the most. They are a pain in the ass to make.

My, how could that taste so awful?

My wife went to boarding school in N. Mass. They had a farm. They'd have prime rib and Yorkshire pudding! The school costs 52 K now.

Maine diners/dives

Cleonice has moved into the old Masonic Lodge, Internet cafe w/ super reasonably priced food w/ local ingrediants; from "gourmet" pizza to 'catch of the day" local fish.On the top of Main Street.

Don't miss Conte's in Rockland.

Walmart has absolutely no shame

Walmart Watch is a great web site devoted to just how creepy Wallyworld really is.
I'd rather have a root canal than shop at Walmart. My taxes go to pay Walmart employees' food stamps and medical care!

Cabbage recipes?

I used cabbage in my borscht, and in a Russian cabbage soup called Schi. I love curried cabbage or over pasta in a cream sauce. I also mix it w/ store bouget kraut, add onion, carrots and carraway seeds and bake it w/ a racjk of spare ribs in the center of the kraut. Stuffed rolled cabbage or Holupsi (golumpkies). Cut out the cabbager core stuff w/ spicy Greek ground lamb and steam it in 1/2" water or bake it, on a rack inside a cassarol and bake it.

Can a whole chicken be prepared in a 6L pressure cooker?

Here is a different method to make Pollo a la Broasted. I learned how to cook it this way in Bolivia.

Print This Post Email This Post
How to Make Broasted ChickenBroasters are frying equipments for chicken or other meats. Broasting chicken involves frying of chicken under pressure using a special marinating process. This specific marinate is available only in restaurants or hotels, so it’s not easy to make at home.

In this process, the taste of the chicken is similar to fried chicken, less greasy, but moister. Boasted chicken appears nutty and crispy, with a golden-brown coating, but very pulpy and tender deep down to the inside of the bone. It’s very appealing to look at and instantly tempting.

Ingredients:
•Fryer chicken: 1
•Water: 4 cups
•Salt: ¼ cup
•Meat Magic Cajun Seasoning: 1 tbsp.
•Baking powder: 2 tsp.
•Salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
•Canola oil for frying: 1-2 cups
•Cornstarch: ½ cup
•Seasoned Fry Mix: 1 cup
Instructions:
1.Clean the chicken pieces thoroughly and cut them into bite-size pieces.
2.Pour water in a large bowl, add salt. Place the chicken in the salted water. Soak the meat for about an hour. Do not drain the chicken.
3.Pour canola oil in a pressure cooker and fill it up to 2 inches high. Now turn the stove on and heat the oil uncovered, in the pressure-cooker, until it touches 375 degrees F.
4.Add baking powder, Cajun seasoning, fry-mix, cornstarch, pepper and salt together. Whisk and add sufficient water until it becomes a thin and smooth batter.
5.Take the chicken one at a time, and dip them into the prepared batter. Coat the pieces evenly with it. For this, you can use a tongs. It will make the task easier and less messy.
6.Fry the coated pieces into the pressure cooker. Deep-fry them in the hot canola oil in the pressure cooker for 2-3 minutes.
7.The next step is to put the lid onto the pressure cooker. Cover it tightly and cook the content for 10-12 minutes.
8.Once it’s done, pull up on the pressure valve, letting the vapor escape completely. Now loosen and remove the lid.
9.Drain the chicken pieces out of the oil carefully onto a paper towel, soaking excess grease.
10.Allow the pieces to cool for some time before serving.
11.Serve the dish with your favorite garnishing.
Tips:

•Adding baking powder, flour or cornstarch to the seasoning gives the fried pieces a crispy and crunchy taste and texture.
•Quantity of water may vary, depending upon the requirement.
•If you prefer less oil, you can use other reduced-fat cooking medium as well.

Tamales for breakfast. .

A hot tamale w/ a frijole. I get both Acoma and Mexican style tamales from my students. Both are pork and red chile. Little pieces of folk art; double tied. A tamale and a cuppa Joe makes for a good start on the day.

My great food addiction...

New Mexican chiles. I have/had 90lbs. of green chile in the freezer and 3 50lb. onion sack of dried red chile. A 50lb sack of dried pinto beans round out the diet.
ps There are just 2 of us.

Where Do You Worship? (I'm Talkin' Food Here)

My kitchen. I do all the cooking. I blast Handel, Mozart, Beethoven or Bach. Pour a glass of communion wine and cook in solitude, in my own food world.

Classic old dishes I remember

New England clam or fish chowder, fish cakes and beans for breakfast and the hard to find salt fish on mashed potatos W/ pork scraps and diced raw onion.
