Food Thread: Autolyse For The Win And Infused Gin For The Loss!

4day ferment1.jpg

The trick with sourdough bread is to get that wonderful tangy flavor while still having enough fermenting power to give the dough its last oomph during the final rise.

My breadmaking skills are adequate, but not good enough to create those glorious-looking breads that one finds in San Francisco, and now many other bread-centric places. So I tried a different technique, and it has proven to be both quite easy and quite successful.

Well...it's sort of an amalgam of a few different things that I have read about, but hell, it worked, and I am not proud. I have begun doing something called an autolyse, which is nothing more than mixing the flour and the water and letting it rest before you put anything else in the dough. It allows the dough to begin forming those compounds that make it stretchy, and allows more simple sugars to develop so the yeast can go to town.

I also doubled down on fermentation, but I went the long, cold route, because I figured that would give me that reserve of yeast (and bacteria) action for the final rise.

And it worked pretty well! The flavor was amazing, and while I didn't quite get the structure I was hoping for, it was damned good bread, with great crust. The only downside was that the bread was too tender! It was tough to slice, and probably wouldn't hold up as sandwich bread. But butter sure worked well!

******

Tri Tip! I haven't had it in years, and it is vanishingly rare around here. In fact I don't recall ever seeing it in the supermarket. But I sometimes buy meat from on-line purveyors, and recently I picked up a Tri Tip for laughs. But nobody was laughing last night...we were too busy eating it, because it turned out fantastically well.

Four hours in Sous Vide at 127 degrees, then chilled down to firm up and prevent it from overcooking while I was finishing it on the grill. I cooked it with some dry rub and some minced garlic, then a last sprinkle of dry rub before getting damned close to charred on the grill. I was dodging thunderstorms and luckily didn't get soaked!

I have no idea where Tri Tips are common and where they simply don't exist, but it is a cut that I will be pursuing with great focus and vigor!

******

Remember that basil gimlet I was ranting and raving about? It's a great drink for the summer months when kudzu basil is abundant and wonderfully fresh and fragrant. And with all of that extra basil just going to waste I figured that making a basil-infused gin would be a fine thing...allowing me to have the wonderful taste of summer long into the autumn.

basilgin.jpg

Except it looks like piss and it tastes pretty bland. Maybe I waited too long and the basil I used was past its peak, or maybe it's just a dumb idea. Or maybe I didn't use enough basil or didn't let it infuse for long enough.

basil55.jpg

And all good things must come to an end, especially fresh basil. So I am stuck with mediocre infused gin and no fresh basil!

******

Remembering Vietnam: Heating C-Rations with a Pinch of C-4

Hmmm....I wonder how stable C-4 is, and whether there were some interesting accidents...

[Hat Tip: redc1c4]

******

I was looking for an interesting meatball recipe, and came up empty, but I did find another recipe for Carbonara that is simple and conforms to the traditional, rather than the bastardized dish (cream? what the hell!). Traditional Pasta Carbonara is a very basic dish, but when done well it is marvelous. It's just bacon and eggs with pasta, but there is nothing wrong with that combination.

I would garnish with a bit of chopped Italian parsley. It looks great and adds some counterpoint to the richness of the eggs and pork.

Avocados sans thumbprints, beef short ribs that have meat on them (not the stupid little sliver of bone they sneak into the packages), carrots that don't taste like stalky chalk, spare bottles of Van Winkle Special Reserve 12 Year Old Bourbon, an herb garden that actually produces herbs (but no basil!), well-marbled NY strip steaks and elk backstrap to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: I'm watching you...all of you! And I am watching you perverts who shake Manhattans and keeping a list for the Burning Times.

19 Basil can be tricky, and sometimes it is a bit tasteless, I planted some this year and it is not very good at all, though I dried it for this winter. I will buy from a different seller next Spring.

My maceration is anise and star anise in cheap white rum. The flavor reminds me of my poor decisions as a young man, but even more, I add half an ounce when making crusts for fruit pie.

The rum seems to give a bit of lift and a bit of extra flavor to the crust, and the anise is a good counterpoint to what can be a heavy flavor from the fruit.

24 Try my bread recipe in the horde cookbook. It makes a lovely crust, and the interior is delightfully moist. If you wait until it cools completely, it's easier to slice and firmer for sandwiches, but I find that it rarely lasts long enough to cool. It isn't sourdough, but it's really about the best.

31 C4 is actually quite stable. It'll only explode if set off with a blasting cap. It does burn nicely and worked well to heat C rats. Conversely, heat tabs take roughly 48 hours to heat up a canteen cup of coffee beyond tepid.

36 fwiw tri-tip is huge in california and places with refugees from there

Posted by: DenverGregg at October 17, 2021 03:20 PM (0u5Wz)

37 I do a modified sponge process, I use standard yeast and one cup of water and one cup of flour, and let it work and get foamy. This is to save on yeast, but also when I am using coarse ground flour or whole wheat it helps soak it throroughly.
I then add additional water and flour and salt to make bread.

My problem with sourdough is that I am having trouble getting it to rise correctly, so to get the flavor and a decent loaf I let a cup of starter work for 3-4 days until all the solids sink to the bottom and smells sour, and then I make a regular batch of starter and let it work only 4-8 hours and then add the two together. I get fresh yeast working hard AND the sourdough flavor.

As you can tell, I am not a purist.

I mix sesame oil and ground and chopped chili peppers (and maybe ginger) and pressure cook them in those half-cup mini canning jars to make chili oil. The heating seems to extract the flavor and the heat better than just soaking the chilies in oil.

It is as ferocious as your chilies, by the way.

54 CBD is not from the west coast it seems. Being from CA, tri-tip was common. A few years ago you could find it for under $3/lb untrimed (so about 20% fat). After moving to Texas....can't find it.

Historically, tri-tip was never common because you only got 2 cuts per cow and the butcher would just cut the tri-tip into steak strips or grind it up. It wasnt until it picked up w/ the Santa Maria style that it got popular.

Also, hint...do a 10+ hour soak when you sous vide it and sear in pan.

My Grandma left the recipe for poonchkas (phonetic spelling actual is something like pazki) but mom and my aunts and cousins could never get them to come out right. Turns out for whatever reason she left out the secret ingrediant of alcohol. My sister came across another recipe for a pastry that used alcohol and decided to try it and Voila! Grandma's poonchkas returned!
FYI: Poomchkas are like a Bismark but the dough is sweeter and more breadlike.

It worked pretty well. My major observable was that breads made the standard way were usually best with the first day or two after baking. Made Reinhart's way, they hit their peak at about the 2-3 day mark, i.e. the best flavor was delayed.

TriTip, in it's typical butchering, has grain running two different directions, which you must be cognizant of when slicing for service.

Sear and BBQ over oak etc., or sear and roast until about 125 (my preference) to 130 internal (not so good preference).

69 There's a simple trick for Basil infusions - and that is that 80 proof or even 100 proof is too weak. it extracts badly, leaves something looking vaguely like tea in color, and has almost no basil flavor.

Get something strong, as strong as you can find. I recommend the 190 proof Everclear, not the 150 proof. If your state bans it, you can cross a border. The basil flavor comes out strong, and the extract is a pleasant green. But you wouldn't want to drink it.

Now you can dilute it to half strength. You can use distilled water or simple syrup if you want a liqueur, or whatever ratio of the two you want. It will stay green, or mostly green, and have a strong flavor of basil

81 Made a pork tenderloin yesterday using a new recipe that said to use smoked paprika in the rub. It was okay but the paprika kind of dominated so ended up with a lot leftover. Decided to make it into chili. Threw a bunch of stuff in the pot including some leftover green salsa and some peach salsa along with the onions,garlic diced tomatoes and some pickled jalapenos. Intend to add black beans towards the end. Should be done later.

TriTip, in it's typical butchering, has grain running two different directions, which you must be cognizant of when slicing for service.

Sear and BBQ over oak etc., or sear and roast until about 125 (my preference) to 130 internal (not so good preference).

Posted by: My Pimp Shot My Dealer at October 17, 2021 03:38 PM (tJk1z)

This is where knowing how to slice it comes into play. When you slice it against the grain, you get a much better slice to eat.

The secret?
Smash them before you start cooking. I used this guy's method:
https://www.reddit.com/r/grilling/
comments/opqdlh/s

mashburgers_on_the_grill_or_how_
to_grill_burgers/

Tips:
1) 80/20 ground beef for maximum flavor and juiciness.
2) Grill needs to be very hot. I set my wood pellet grill to 500*.
3) Watch carefully. You probably won't cook any longer than 2 min max
The great thing about smash burgers is the increased sear/carmelization per unit burger. Very yummy.
Give it a whirl.

The plastic itself is not likely to migrate, but additives within it could likely do so. Not good, for sure.

The whole "boil in the bag" craze for vegetables and other items that flooded the marketplaces starting some years ago never held any appeal for me.

116 Tri tip is California BBQ. I rub it with cider or wine vinegar, make a paste of garlic, salt, black pepper, and oil. Maybe add some rosemary. Coat the roast with this and let it sit for a few hours or overnight. Smoke for about an hour per pound at 200 degrees, max. Then sear over direct heat - wood fire if that can be managed, mopping with BBQ sauce as you go. Do not count on left overs...

124 Speaking of gin -

Citadelle Gin Jardin d'Ete is great stuff.

It's a limited time(?) variation on their regular gin. It has more citrus with yuzu and melon, BUT the important thing is that Citadelle has used a very light hand with the atypical ingredients.

I usually prefer very traditional gins, however this makes excellent G&Ts, Gimlets, and Last Word cocktails.

The flavor is lighter so for a cocktail like the Last Word use about a 1/3 more gin to balance out.

I give it the highly regarded naturalfake Seal of Approval.

I'm going against the crowd here in I prefer to do mine w/ a rub instead of marinade. A good heavey rub, let it sit uncovered in the fridge overnight gives you a nice crusty outside.

143 110- I am lucky in that I live in NYC and there's a gourmet store for chefs in my old neighborhood. It's pistachio puree and expensive AF, because it comes in a huge tub and it's imported from Sicily.

I mean, really expensive, like once-a-year expensive.

It's at SOS-chef.com.

You can find smaller/less expensive containers by searching for 'pistachio Cream" or Pistachio butter." You gotta look at the ingredients, though, because a lot of places sell pistachio cream/butter for use in desserts and they add sugar or cream. Which is good too, but might taste odd when making pasta with pistachio cream.

The store is a destination - you can get harissa made with cherries, or any kind of herb you can imagine.

Its time for Pete Buttigieg to truck off down the road from the Department of Transportation if, that is, he turns up for work again and can find a driver. Its shameful even by the standards of the federal government for the head of a department to disappear during an emergency. Its ludicrous for a technocratic Democrat in a technocratic administration.

Does anyone have, or know someone who has, a root cellar you're actually using? About how far south can you get before it's too hot during the summer?

Posted by: Helena Handbasket at October 17, 2021 03:15 PM


My home actually came with a root cellar (SE Pennsylvania), but I decided to convert it into a wine cellar, because 'happy wife, happy life' theory and I'm really good with bricks and a bag of cement, and some cedar shelving.

My *now* wine cellar keeps my red wines around 50 degrees F year round. I suspect that VA is about the furthest south it might work.

Posted by: dartist at October 17, 2021 05:04 PM (+ya+t)

177 Never had corned beef in my life, nor yet corned beef hash. So a couple weeks ago I got a can of Hormel c.b. hash, fried it in bacon grease in cast iron until crispy. Hoped it would stay in a cake but it fell apart. Ate it anyway--couldn't believe it was as good as it was. I ate the whole can. So, probably it's out as prepper food since I would eat too much at a time.

Posted by: skywch at October 17, 2021 04:59 PM (QVgqY)

I don't care for corned beef, but the Hormel c.b. hash is MUCH better than the roast beef hash. Fabulous with fried eggs.

On that topic, I've recently rediscovered Swedish "putt i panna." You cube meat leftovers and fry them with cut up preboiled potatoes and onion. Begin with the potatoes to give them a chance to brown, then add the onions and meat. This is a great way to deal with leftover pork loin and stuff like that (we never finish our roasted pork loin in the first meal).

In my little town, we have some sort of priority bike road, which just so happens to be the only way out of where I live. There are signs every 300 feet about the necessity to stay 3 feet away from spandex colorated bike people. The only way to observe that 3 foot requirement is to cross the center line and either:
1. Kill an immigrant family trying to make a new life here, escaping gang violence, with a head-on collision
2. Get a ticket for crossing the center line
3. Slowly follow their neon yellow spandex covered buttocks for the next mile

259 Wifey asked me to thank you for the basil gimlet recipe a couple months back -- she used Thai basil, and really enjoyed it.

BTW, speaking of gin, we met some folks who'd escaped Manhattan for the environs of Northern AZ, and they turned us on to a wonderfully tasty beverage (that goes to your head quickly) called an "Aviation" (perhaps because it gets you flying):
. 3 shots Gin;
. 1 shot Creme de Violette;
. 1/2 shot Luxardo Cherry;
. 1/2 shot Lemon Juice;
. lots of ice in a shaker.

Kinda atypical measurements for an Aviation -
It's usually:
2 oz gin
.5 oz Luxardo maraschino liqueur
.5 oz lemon juice
.25 oz creme de violette
Shake with ice. Garnish with maraschino cherry.
The name Aviation supposedly come from the sky bluish look of the cocktail.
Try it this way and see if you like it better. I love the Aviation. But, if you like it your way. Do what you enjoy.

273 They are too ashamed to show pictures.

On a formerly two lane ave, with a third lane for parking, through a suburb of New Orleans they have; Taken the parking lane for the houses and reserved it for the bike lane and an exclusion zone, Taken the former right lane and made it the parking lane for the houses and given the outside lane for cars and the like.


I guess they think this will encourage people to walk a mile or more to the bus stop in 90+ degree temperatures and 90+ humidity to get to work. They really hate us.

282 Tri tip is fairly common in the SW. Marinate as others have noted. I like lime juice, olive oil, garlic, cumin, black pepper and salt turned smashed together in mortar and pestle. Grill and you have carne asada for burritos or tacos.

283 I go to the local farmers market and have bought some great sour dough bread. I'm not sure I'm ready for the days of work I've seen in the recipes I have for sour dough.

I buy some fresh meat from Bringhurst in South Jersey (different state than New/North) and they have Tri Tip listed.

Last time was this past weekend. Two 8oz ribeyes. Cooked them on a grill and potatoes and onions in the fire at Parvin State Park Tuesday night. Great dinner. Didn't catch any fish though.

284 btw....I love gin and make it a habit of trying as many as I can. I can assuredly tell you that of all the "self-professed" higher tiers of gin, New Amsterdam is one of the worst. They are essentially a Vodka company that makes a product made to taste like gin by adding cheap flavorings. If you try their "Orange Flavored Gin" you can almost taste the Vodka and the orange Life Saver that flavors it......In short, uncommonly bad gin. Just saying.....
