Food Thread: Peanuts And Zero-Proof Drinks And Unicorn Butt Cake: One Of These Sounds Good!

WeaselPeanuts.jpg

Boiled peanuts. Goober peas. Whatever you want to call them, they are loads of fun to eat! I remember as a little kid, driving through the South with my family and stopping for gas and a bag of boiled peanuts. And then getting in trouble for making a mess, but that's another story.

Above is Weasel's version, which is a strong indication that the recipe is...um...uncomplicated. He's a man who struggles with multi-layer sandwiches like peanut butter and jelly on toast, so if he can make them, you can too!

I don't remember any flavorings besides salt, but it is, at least according to the internet, very common to spice them up with all sorts of stuff. I think I'll try it, although finding green peanuts might be tough in the wilds of New Jersey. Not really...the internet has everything.

Whole Foods has moved into the fringes of the far-left part of the progressive mainstream of supermarkets, but if this ridiculous list is any indication, they have a long way to go before I start shopping there for more than a few particular items.
10 Food Trends To Look For In 2020, According To Whole Foods
Get ready to say yes, way to zero-proof aperitifs, see West African cuisine rise to prominence and say goodbye to tired and staid kids' menus. Whole Foods Market just released its list of 2020 food trends to watch for and topping the list of predictions is a continued focus on eco-conscious eats.

More than 50 Whole Foods Market staff members including local foragers, regional and global buyers and culinary experts put together the list of 10 food trends based on consumer preferences data, their own product sourcing experiences and what's been popular at food and wellness industry exhibitions. Here's a look at the food that will be popping up on plates in the year to come.

Where to start...where to start?

How about a big LOLGF? This list is a mass of hipster douche-bag SJW crap, with every leftist political meme inserted into what should be an easy and uncomplicated experience...buying food for the family. But no, they have to thrust their soppy, ahistoric, innumerate, ignorant-of-basic-economics blather into the mundane task of going to the store for dinner.

I mentioned to commenter "Roscoe," when he sent me this photo that I had eaten vegemite a long time ago while visitng Australia, and I am still traumatized by the experience. I asked that he explain the deeply psychotic reasons why he eats the stuff!

oldvegemite.jpg
I missed it by only 28 years?!?

Now I regret eating my last jar too quickly. It was probably pre-WWII.

I'm originally Aussie. And a love for black, salty, foul-smelling, brewer's-yeast extract is something that all right-minded Aussies grow up with and proudly exercise. It's another one of the primary things that makes us distinct from & superior to Kiwis, let alone the English.

Regarding your encounter, a few years back at my work we were asked to "bring a plate" for some occasion. I brought Vegemite sandwiches. There are a few co-workers who still remember being traumatized by that experience, I can tell you.

Commenter "Butch" emailed with the unsurprising news that I am completely full of shit when it comes to "Balsamic Cream Sauce." Remember the roasted onions with what I thought was going to be a balsamic reduction? Well...I was spectacularly wrong.
BALSAMIC CREAM SAUCE
Why you people listen to me is beyond all reckoning. Except for that whole maple syrup brouhaha. About that I am 100% correct!
******

Long-time lurker "RS" has sausage on the brain, just like me! But he is luckier than I...
What purports to be the oldest continuously operating restaurant in the world serves only bratwurst cooked over a charcoal grill, It's on the banks of the Danube in Regensburg, Germany. The sausages are authentic Bavarian brats which are the diameter ob our breakfast links and the length of a over-sized hot dog. They are divine. I've eaten there many, many times.
Here's the restaurant's website, the menu, and it even has a wiki entry!

9 I always felt like the shell on a peanut was food, too, and I always ate them--sometimes without breaking open the pod--and so I ate very, very few peanuts. More for my siblings!

10 One nice thing about Whole Food--since they're owned by Amazon, if you need to return something to Amazon you can take it there, no need to find a box or wrap it.

Nothing to do with food, though.

11 Upon retiring 6 months ago, I received a number of bottles of Scotch. I guess the word of my incipient alcoholism got out. Anyway, last night, we had all the kids over, and I decided to open one of the bottles in celebration. It was a Laphroaig Lore.

For those of you unfamiliar with Laphroaig, it's an intensely peaty, iodine-y single malt. It isn't for everyone, but I like that type. However, even I can't drink Laphroaig every day. It's intense.

Turns out, the Lore has all the best properties of the 10, but is so much smoother and complex. I can't recommend it enough. Well, assuming you have $100 to blow.

I think it may just have displaced Talisker as my favorite.

12 For the record, I lived in southeast Alabama and the best boylt peanuts are green and salted only. The National peanut festival is every November in Dothan, Alabama. It's a carnival of deliciousness!!
That as well as the Strawberry Festival in Plant City Florida every year at the end of February.

16 Now on to rye.

I really like the Whistlepig 10, but it is also quite spendy, so I thought I'd try something a bit cheaper, but still not cheap. I got a bottle of Knob Creek Single Cask Select and the wife and I did a blind taste test.

The Knob Creek is spicier, almost peppery. It's quite good, but not nearly as good as the Whistlepig. The search continues for affordable rye.

18 Live in the heart of peanut country. Every year its a kind of game to drive by the many local farms and guess from the beginning growth- peanuts? soy beans? cotton?

The simplest way to "make" boiled peanuts is in the crock pot.

Add salt only! Anything else is some kinda left wing plot.

Why yes, I am from the South why do you ask?

19 Good afternoon, fellow Hordelings, and Thank You, CBD, for another fun Food Thread!

So, auspicious:

When I checked the fridge this morning, I saw that we actually had challah left from this past Shabbos dinner (this is VERY rare). And since it is indisputable that fresh, thickly sliced challah makes the *best* French Toast, I started to grab some eggs to begin the custard.

And that's when I saw the unopened quart of lactose-free eggnog we'd bought for the girls when they came to visit in late December. This gave me an idea: what *is* eggnog but slightly nutmeggy egg custard?

Hmmmm....

So after confirming that the nog was still potable, I set about slicing and dunking the challah, firing up the CI skillet with some canola oil, and voila! The most tender, fluffy, *delicious* FT I've ever made. While I of course anointed mine with [redacted], mrs ibguy went with just butter and a sprinkle of kosher salt (of course).

Wow.

As an aside, I recommend using non-iodized salt for making boiled peanuts as the iodized salt will impart a slight metallic taste.

What exactly are you looking for in a Rye? Sweetness? Earthiness? Proof? And for the douche bags, "provenance?"


Given that I'd never tasted rye until a few months ago, I'm not sure. As I said, I do like peaty, smoky Scotch, so figured a spicier, less sweet version of bourbon would be good. Also, I don't drink it straight, although I may start. Most of the rye I've consumed was in the form of a Manhattan, which is rapidly becoming a favorite cocktail, if I'm not drinking Scotch neat, or Gand T in the summertime.
It seemed silly to spend Whistlepig prices on mixed drinks, but I maintain that you can taste the difference, so I'm still looking for that top shelf product with the non-top shelf price.

Here in NoVa, Whistlepig 10 is about $75, and Knob Creek Select Single Cask is about $50. I'd say the latter is a reasonable compromise between taste and price, but I'm always looking to do better. I don't know that $30 would have the taste I expect, but I've never bought it, so I don't know.

78 So I made smash burgers. Basically you make a big meatball instead of a patty. Then you heat your griddle pan super high and you smash the shit out of that meatball and sear it dark brown on both sides, and in the process destroy your cheap spatula. Much, much better than I ever expected and super easy. Definitely on the greasy side, so not for every pallet.

Posted by: Max Power at February 16, 2020 04:34 PM (llxrS)

79 It's always amusing to me that Americans find tasting Vegemite such a traumatising event. We Aussies are brought up on the stuff and develop a tolerance at an early age, even going as far as enjoying the uniquely Australian delicacy of cheese and vegemite sandwiches. However the secret to eating Vegemite for the first time is very much like getting used to eating spicy foods, you start off with a small amount and slowly build up your tolerance. For example a light smear of Vegemite on a piece of toast with plenty of butter is more than enough for a first timer. What ever you do, do not slather it on like peanut butter, jam or honey, or eat it directly from a spoon. If you do this you are going to have a bad time.

80 11 ... My favorite Islay scotch is Lagavulin 16 but the price has gone up the last few years. I still have a bottle from a a while back. At the rate I go through scotch, that is a couple of years' worth.

I like Laphoaig and had a chance to try the various styles. This was befor they released the Lore version. My preference is the Laphroaig Quarter Cask. It has all the peatiness, which I enjoy, but there is an underlying sweetness. And it costs around $50, not $100 .

I'd recommend any Rye for "tasting purposes" before suggesting a $50+ bottle. Rye is an acquired taste. I personally have a love/hate relationship with it.

I spend several hundred dollars a month on good booze. Bourbons, Scotches, Vodka, Gin, etc.

My liver will testify.

Sipping Bourbon, vs. drinking Bourbon is a $30 spread. Rye is higher.

95 >>It's always amusing to me that Americans find tasting Vegemite such a traumatising event. We Aussies are brought up on the stuff and develop a tolerance at an early age, even going as far as enjoying the uniquely Australian delicacy of cheese and vegemite sandwiches. However the secret to eating Vegemite for the first time is very much like getting used to eating spicy foods, you start off with a small amount and slowly build up your tolerance. For example a light smear of Vegemite on a piece of toast with plenty of butter is more than enough for a first timer. What ever you do, do not slather it on like peanut butter, jam or honey, or eat it directly from a spoon. If you do this you are going to have a bad time.

You really sold me. I can't wait to tolerate Vegemite!

Valentines Day treat for Friday+ was some homemade Butterscotch Pudding that I've been craving. Weird craving. But I do not remember the last time I had butterscotch pudding. I was probably a kid.

What it will turn into is in Bezo's mind, and perhaps a few senior managers. But it sure isn't the Whole Foods that many got used to before Jeff dropped $13 Billion.

My bad... mostly wheat. Depends on the blend. My issues with Rye are that's it's not easily mixed with stuff. Gingerer Ale maybe. Not fond of fruit juices for Rye.

I typically drink Bourbon, Rye, Scotch, etc. neat, or perhaps over ice.

171 Public service announcement for those too far inland for fresh, unfrozen scallops. I did a frying pan full of them, at a medium-ish heat, and kept draining off the water every couple minutes. The minute I started seeing some brown, they went into a 170 oven while I made a sauce.

Good as fresh from the coast? Not even close! But they weren't rubbery or watery, and Mrs. Refugee says she'll keep me . . so not a bad result at all.

185 Part of my interest in rye whiskey is historical. Rye grain grows, even flourishes, where other grains won't. It was possibly the most common type of whiskey in the Colonies and early America. George Washington had one of the biggest distilleries at Mount Vernon. They rebuilt a small version of the distillery and are using Washington's recipe to make small runs of rye. It would be fun to try some.

Made a tasty and simple supper last night. Family pack of chicken thighs, skin on and with the bone, damnit. 10 pieces. Lightly trimmed the excess fat, coated with a little olive oil, seasoned all over with zattarains seasoning, placed on a wire rack, skin side up, over a rimmed baking sheet, shoved (gently) into a 400 degree oven for 45 minutes.

Served with jasmine rice. Hot, tasty, cheap, and easy! Just like I like my dates.

If you're local, MV has a whisky tasting around Xmas for about $80 a ticket. There are dozens of vendors giving out tastes of their wares. Some are quite good, and some....aren't.

217 I like Trader Joe's. They don't try to be all things to all people so the things they do carry are excellent and reasonable. I buy most of my produce there and the frozen things they carry are usually way better than the regular grocery store brands.

I cooked a thai dinner for some friends and made Thai shrimp and curry green beans and fried tofu from scratch but served lemon grass thai rolls and gyoza from Trader Joe's so i could put freshly made main courses on the table at the proper time.

227 As I'm late to the thread, I offer my boiled peanuts recipe. Pull your peanuts out of the row, shake off the dirt (leave it in the field where it belongs), pick off the peanuts and put them in your 5 gallon bucket, leave the vines in the row middles. When you bucket is full take it to the porch and wash off the dirt (easiest way is leave them in the bucket, add cold water and agitate with your hand like a washing machine). Put your peanuts in the biggest pot you have and throw in a handful of kosher salt. Boil until you can open a peanut with your front teeth dropping them in your mouth. Pour off the water grab a sixpack of Pabst Blue Ribbon and eat peanuts until they are gone. This is the proper way. It is known.

If you plan to do any canning, please check this out before buying a flat cooktop:

Also, not recommended to use cast iron cookware on flat cooktop, due to scratching and risk of breakage.

But! They look so professional and are much easier to keep clean.

Good luck with your decision!

He was governor of Massachusetts early in his career. He was the person who organized the Salt Lake Winter Olympics one of the most successful. He was the Republican nominee in 2012. He's got a doctorate in law from Harvard. And he is probably the most courageous lawmaker we have in the United States, the panel moderator said.

The best rye I've found is Pikesville Rye. It's 110 proof but is smooth and VERY flavorful. And even at state run store prices, it's still under $45. I've been able to try a number of ryes, including Whistle Pig, and none have come close to Pikesville. It is a great value.
Posted by: JTB at February 16, 2020 04:44 PM (7EjX1)


Pikesville is apparently an older (6 yrs vs. 4), higher proof version of Rittenhouse BIB. I haven't tried it, but Rittenhouse BIB is my go-to affordable Rye, so I'll probably like it.

Sazerac is a bit higher-priced, but very good, and perfect in its namesake cocktail, so I tend to keep it around because sazerac cocktails are great.

331 The American Civil Liberties Union Nauraeen Shah said the policy "will put lives at risk by further militarizing our streets."

Make the Road New Jersey, an immigrant support group, in a tweet accused the Trump administration of "deploying weapons of war to our communities".

Democratic congresswoman Ayanna Pressley, whose district includes Boston, said: "We will not stand for this."

"Let us be clear, this move has nothing to do with public safety, but rather serves only to further the Trump Administration's agenda to intimidate and retaliate against cities that uphold the dignity and humanity of our immigrant neighbors," she said a statement.

Meanwhile, former CBP Commissioner Gil Kerlikowske told the Times the move was a "significant mistake".

announced plans to deploy highly trained tactical border control agents
to so-called "sanctuary cities" across the country to boost arrests of
undocumented immigrants.
Members of the US Customs and Border Protection's
(CBP) Border Patrol Tactical Unit (BORTAC) will be among the officers
deployed to cities including Los Angeles, Chicago and New York, to
assist Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE).
Officers will also be sent to San Francisco, Atlanta, Houston,
Boston, New Orleans, Detroit and Newark, New Jersey, CBP spokesman
Lawrence Payne said in a statement on Friday.

362 Peanuts:
Peanuts or unsweetened peanut butter is one of the magic ingredients that makes Thai stir-fry and dipping sauce one of my go to meals.

Peanuts give amazing flavor to chicken merinaded in lime juice. Add sesame oil, julienned hot peppers and other veggies, ginger and a dash of coconut in your wok with a shot of nuoc mam fish sauce to make a meal that will satiate your tummy and clean out your sinuses (depending on number of peppers and ginger added) .

401 OK, I know I am annoying with my Wuhan SARS comments, so I try to keep minimum.

(I should be working now anyway)

Here is my theory: Xi has said he was in control from start. Now why would he say this?

Well, If he says he was not in control, then easy to blame him since he is leader. If he says he is in control, then he can blame people who work for him for not following his orders.

Yesterday he came out and said he was in control since beginning, which means early Jan (at latest) when decision was made to hide from public. This was big mistake.

So I think Xi is under pressure to resign. Not only are public dying, but even CCP members! Doesn't virus know who they are! So Beijing is in lockdown and party members no longer feel invincible. Xi is to blame.

I really think we are seeing end of CCP.

406 As for the rest of world (Since I do not want to disappear after comment)

I think it is about 50/50 to hit other countries. Japan found dozens of symptomless carriers on cruise ship, and on cruise ship either incubation is very long, or infection is very easy to transmit. Either one means 14 day quarantine is not enough and so maybe carriers will slip though.

The real tragedy is that we have this data out of Japan after 10 days of their testing, but after 2 months in China they tell the world almost nothing.

OK, that is different question. Short answer is no.

Long answer is that my fear of war has always come from the PLA who are so indoctrinated in their propaganda that they think war with US is inevitable and that China will win, and the sooner the better.

So in a sense, Xi has been focusing on his slow takeover approach and was protection against real war.

If he is axed, then situation is more risky, but overall better for world since the evil empire will be in disarray and less powerful.

421 However, if the wuhanwola thing goes sideways bigly I cold see him getting booted and mebbe an end to them.



The thing about the chicom vs the sovs is that the chinese empire has been a thing much longer than the russian empire.


And while there is a lot of Mexican asses that eed to be kicked out, there is no way that the current ICE BORTAC deployment is unrelated to Chinese infiltration by Bat-soup flu carriers.

If that shit WAS in fact a chemical weapon, who the hell do think they planned to launch it against?


This just stepped up the timing.

424 Dutch licorice reminds me of urine. Not that I've ever had urine.

I don't think it was bio weapon.

I think it is possible (maybe plausible, but not >50% chance) that it was accidental release from their lab. They had incident in fall where workers were splashed with bat goo while taking samples and had to be isolated. But down the block people are butchering and eating the same bats, so why worry about some bat blood splashed on skin? There is more to that story.

I don't know. Everything is a weapon to Commies bent on world domination on a shoestring budget.
But whatever the context, there is no doubt that there are Chinese national carriers here in the US. Hope those BORTAC agents glove up and mask up.

CDC is currently of the opinion that it is specifically virulent against Chinese, Meh for everyone else.

However, if you want to worry, worry about the vagrants crapping on the sidewalk, and it getting airborne as an aerosol when the city comes by to powerwash it all away.

429 Anise is definitely a love/hate flavor. I'm not a fan of fennel in italian sausage. I prefer garlic

430 Yeah... tried them in Charleston a couple years back... they were okay.

432 Does anyone remember pouring salted peanuts into a bottle of Pepsi or Coke and drinking it down with the peanuts? I have only met Southerners who do this so I assume it is a regional thing.

433 Enjoyed the comment in re the Wurstkuche in Regensberg.My wife and I have taken a number of river cruises on the Rhine and Danube over the years and this was always a favorite stop. The restaurant has been flooded a number of times but always pops back up. On the wall of the building behind the restaurant there is a record of the high water marks and some of them are about at roof level.
