Food Thread: [insert title here]

porkcrispy.jpg

Ah...Thanksgiving! It's one of my favorite holidays, when I can crack open the good booze and the fun recipes and really stick to tradition.

You know...baked cod and lobster and maybe some eels, and of course wild duck and goose and passenger pigeon, and if we are lucky some venison. For the sides we'll have corn mush and maybe some oat porridge!

Yeah...I am not a traditionalist when it comes to menus, but I like to eat well, so a large bone-in pork loin is on the menu! Yes, there will be a turkey for you boring sticks-in-the-mud, but the stuffing will be cooked on the outside of the bird!

We are shifting the sides a bit though...corn pudding and spinach gratin are the new kids in town, but we have run a couple of tests, and there was much rejoicing!

But no matter what you serve or how you serve it...the point is the pleasure of the company of the people around the table. And if that means 20 people spread across your entire house? Great! Enjoy. And if that means that you are dining alone? Well, according to Plutarch, the Roman general Lucullus insisted on a lavish meal in spite of dining alone, because "Lucullus dines with Lucullus!"

So break out the good china or double up on the paper plates, open that special bottle of whatever (as long as it isn't Bud Light!), and enjoy a quintessential American holiday.

Cheers!

Oh good! Fresh beef from Paraguay may be on the menu! Obviously a fair amount of the resistance to this plan comes from the American beef industry, so it can be partially discounted as simply looking out for their bottom line. But there are two additional issues. The first is that I don't trust our government to make a single smart decision, so if they are pushing for it, I'm against it. Secondly, I have never been particularly impressed by the food safety culture of south and central America, so the complaint that they may bring in disease along with the beef is something that should not be discarded out of hand.

On the other hand, Paraguay shares a border with Argentina, and they have a vibrant beef industry that produces some great stuff...so I am torn.

But mostly I say, "No." We need to protect our agricultural industry as a component of national security, so that in the worst case we can still feed America. Outsourcing food production is not the way to do that.

I need some peasant bread for a new stuffing (STUFFING!) recipe, and because I am an obsessive-compulsive knucklehead I'm baking it. And of course I had to do a test run. I tried this guy's master recipe, and it was certainly tasty and easy, but I missed that wonderful tactile connection to bread...the kneading!

Artisan Bread In Five Minutes

Anyway, it's fun and simple, and the only tough part is forming the loaf with the high-hydration dough. But even that is manageable.

Well, there is one problem with this...I don't have a toaster.

Okay, there are two problems with this; how do you clean the damned thing of melted cheese and other pizza dtritus?

But the biggest issue is; what about eating pizza cold from the box the next morning? Isn't that a tried-and-true method in all homes of discerning palates?

It is in mine! Or reheating in a pan to crisp the bottom if you insist on hot pizza.

Really folks, do better...be better.

For whatever reason I have been thinking about a bowl of classic New England Clam Chowder. Granted, it is a great soup, but what set my mind to think obsessively about it is beyond me. I haven't read Moby Dick recently, so maybe it was seeing some great-looking big clams at my local fish store?

Anyway, I'll be making a pot of it soon, and I will absolutely, positively, without a doubt be using fresh clams. Sure, canned are easier, but fresh is the way to go.

The oyster imperative remains in effect, and send pork rib roasts with the pork belly attached, carrots that don't taste like stalky chalk (and speaking of vegetables; were all of our snap peas stolen by space aliens?), garlic...lots of garlic! (and basil! My basil did not do well this year!), well-marbled hanger steaks and elk chops to: cbd dot aoshq at gmail dot com.

And don't think that the rest of you are off the hook with maple syrup and French Toast: so why don't you put maple syrup on your steaks and chops and chicken?

And yes, I used to demand fancy bourbon, but let's face it, $1,200 for a bottle of bourbon is just stupid, insulting, and a ghastly affront to most people's palates and wallets. I think the sweet spot is $40-$60 for excellent and interesting bottles, and bumping that to $100 gets you an incremental improvement in quality, but nothing mind-blowing. More than that and I think you are paying for hype and rarity, which may look good in your liquor cabinet, but doesn't translate to more quality in the bottle.

10 Air fryer is great for reheating pizza.

No meat from Paraguay please.

I like New England and Manhattan clam chowda. The best conch chowda I ever had is sold at the Key West airport cafe, The Conch Flyer. Big bowl, lots of tender conch and spicy, $6.95.

Oh look! Martini Time! One olive only please.

11 I don't cook often enough to keep fresh ones around, and I usually prefer fairly bland meals, but I find that adding a sprinkle or two of dried jalapeno dices to most beef dishes adds just that little bit of something that pushes them from good to great.

12 I made NE clam chowder just yesterday, after enduring weeks of plaintive bleating from the wife. I have attached the recipes I use, with my favorite being the Emeril one. I use canned clams instead of the others, which saves at least half the work, without noticeably compromising the quality. The real key is to make the base first, then add the potatoes and simmer for 20-30 minutes. Finally, add the clams and cream but do NOT let the mixture come to a boil.

17 Argentinians know their meat. As do Brazilians. If you go to any even decent authentic Argentine or Brazilian steakhouse or restaurant, you are almost guaranteed to get a damn good meal. They are Neanderthal carnivores: they eat everything in the animals. I stick only to the meat.

32 Thanksgiving has always been a special occasion to me. It was usually the first time I would go home from school to see my folks and brother and have a decent meal.

Traditional fare all the way, including bread stuffing inside the bird (we have recently substituted Bob Evans mashed potatoes for homemade). I've had a few bad Thanksgivings but not here to talk about those today.

33 Mindful, I feel for you. I start a surgery prep regimen the morning after Thanksgiving, so had to turn down a couple of good invitations. I'll eat something, but nothing substantial.

It was an epic perch year all through the season on Lake Erie, so one side of the family is all "Fishgiving."

38 Traditional thanksgiving coming up. Since it's just my wife and me, a 9.5 lb bird, which will be brined using a Williams-Sonoma mix. The temp's supposed to go down to about 35 deg. Wed. night, which is just perfect for setting the brining cooler outside overnight with minimal added ice.

The rest of it is standard fare, stuffing, mashed potatoes and a vegetable yet to be determined.

Speaking of vegetables, the local supermarket had some kabocha squash on hand. Tried one and damn that's good!

Although it has taken a couple of decades to develop into a proper rivalry, I'm still convinced that "10 vs .40" is the new ".38 vs .45" and should have staying power. They're so close to being virtually indistinguishable, it's as much fun as academic power struggles. Yes, I can tell them apart, but probably not once you start mixing in target rounds and +P.

That camel meat article. Quite thorough. But ....
1. Why do people mix metric and US measures? You do know that practice cost us a whole Mars Lander(?).
2. This phrase 'Research also suggests it may contain more e essential amino acids.' is ambiguous. Does it mean more in the number of individual amino acids or more in the quantity of each amino acid? Also more as compared to what?
3. Taste? Is it like beef or like game? Two very different tastes so this is quite confusing. Probably shouldn't have mentioned beef at all.

87 Had planned to have 2 rib eye steaks from cattle raised by our neighbors as our Thanksgiving meal. New neighbors are on their own as well so we've been invited to their house. Turkey, sweet potato casserole provided by them and mashed potatoes, roasted green beans with bacon and tomatoes, pumpkin pie from us. Might bake sweet potato bread as well. No mention of cranberries in any form. Maybe they'll have my husband's favorite of canned cranberry relish that maintains the shape of the can.

103 I've made several roaster chickens lately using the recipe in the Mary's Nest cookbook, which works great. But we are rather tired of poultry at the moment and it will be just the two of us for Thanksgiving. So we said to hell with tradition and are making beef stroganoff for The Meal. (I prefer it over jasmine rice instead of noodles.) The tradition can come from the pumpkin pie and apple crumble.

BTW, this is the recipe we submitted to the Deplorable Gourmet. We gave a few as gifts. Had to explain, to the extent possible, the humor in it but were told the recipes are great.

I'll snack on a bit of the dark meat while I am carving the turkey, especially the stuff near the bottom that has soaked in fat and juice. But it really isn't that exciting.

I think the allure is more the low price combined with the huge size of modern birds. It's pretty damned easy and cheap to feed an army.

Weirdly, my turkey phobic family is asking for a Thanksgiving turkey this year.

Buuuuuuut, I'm making a Beef Wellington so that 's what they're getting.

Ackshewallee, I'll do a spatchcocked turkey for the secondary meat of the feast cuz I found an interesting recipe.

I hate wet mushy stuffing/dressing...Yuck! It seems like something a foie gras goose might squirt out it's backend.

So, I'm glad the lovely and considerate Mrs naturalfake follows my Mom's recipe where the dressing is baked in a pan and comes out with a delightful crunchy topping.

The only difficulty as I see it is the two batches of gravy, which I need to make for the mains. Maybe I'll draft a kiddo into Gravy Duty.

164 DH took me shooting yesterday for a birthday present. Paid a guy we know to critique my technique, and he said I have some serious talent. Nice groupings, and lots of lovely noise.

Then they shot their ARs and had a blast, literally.

Now I'm starting work on Thanksgiving for 11, six adults, the rest hungry kids. Turkey, stuffing, gravy, ham with pineapple glaze, fresh made rolls, apple green salad with craisins and pecans, green beans with garlic bacon cheese french fried onions, big old cheese ball with pretzels, apple pie, cherry pie, pumpkin pie, vanilla whipped cream, half a dozen bottles of various wines, prosecco and coffee for after, plus a good snort for those who partake of such things.

Big comfy chairs for the food coma stage. Open belching encouraged.

Turkey's okay. I probably eat turkey 100 days a year. It's fairly low calorie, low taste.

3 years ago I was at the Kroger in Sylvania ohio, had picked up a Jar of "French Provincial w/mushooms and Wine" sauce intending to brown a couple chicken breasts , douse them with it and cook under a lid for a bit. Served over egg noodles.
Got to the meat counter and the only chicken breasts left were a few tiny/scrawny things...when the lady butcher asked what she could help me with I mentioned the dilemma, she said there was another box in the back she was just getting ready to unpack and put out, if I wanted to continue shopping she'd page me when they were ready.
About 10minutes later over the loudspeaker...
"Would the Gentleman interested in large breasts please meet me by the seafood counter".

The drive from Silicon Valley was nail biting enough with snow covering the roads, several inches think at the higher elevations. The Thanksgiving dinner provided by the league was.... uninspiring and sad.

Reminds me of my late Wife. It was either near TG or Xmas and she was planning on making a fruit cake. She went to the IGA but couldn't find dates. She buttonholed the manager, whom she knew casually from having attended the same high school many years previously, and said to him "I'm looking for dates." As she realised what that sounded like but before she could clarify, he replied straight-faced, "Ma'am I'm married."
Then they had a good laugh.
She did find the dates.

Eh put up with it. They don't really know you and are doing their best. In itself, they are then demanding something from you, to validate their help. This fine but not helpful to you at this moment. I recommend playing the jukebox instead of them buying you drinks that makes them feel they are helping you, which they may or may not be, but creates space for you to experience emotion.

336 Dre, those smaller hogs should be great! The large ones can taste quite rank, I hear.

You are correct. That is why my cutoff is around 100 lbs. the big ones don't taste very good in my opinion. Especially the boars

====================
Greetings, Cicero ... You could change it up a bit by making my Uncle Bob's Baked Potatoes ... All the ingredients are the same as yours ... What's different is that you slice the potatoes in half and make criss-cross scores on the inside surfaces ... Drizzle oil on the bottom of a lipped baking pan, maybe even add a little butter and sprinkle with salt/pepper, bake at same temperature but for half the time ... Scored surfaces will be crispy and delish.

Posted by: Tom Servo at November 19, 2023 06:55 PM (S6gqv)

377 Hadn't thought about it in years, but --
in olden times (my dad's whole life for instance) people had it drilled into them to make sure all pork was almost well-done, because of trichinosis. Then, improved farm conditions, antibiotics, cleaner slaughter for a while, and it got safer to not overcook pork. The recent emergence of a great deal of wild pork on the hoof probably calls for a lot more attention to the distressing science of pork cookery.

We probably ought to run up a thread on it sometime, because there is a hell of a lot of boar hunting going on, and needs to be.

There have been attempts in the past market food preserved by exposure to radiation from a nuclear reactor. Needless to say, it was a hard sell. Now if suitable radiation could reliably kill the trichinosis cysts, there might be a market for a custom service to do the hogs for you.

383 Sauerbraten is on the menu this year. So I had to buy gingersnaps. It is so hard to find gingersnaps not made with crap like soybean oil. Found some at Wegman's that only have like 3 or 4 ingredients (one of which is molasses).

Also, spaetzle. Not serving that crap they have at Lidl. They're straight and thin and uniform. That's linguini, not spaetzle. Mine will be properly lumpy, as homemade spaetzle should be. IYKYK.

389 To CBD re: basil did not do well. I container raise citrus trees and quite by accident discovered that basil germs and grows best if it has shade while young. Any good earth gets planted with something at my home so the citrus got undersown with various herbs a number of years ago. The basil in particular went ape scat and forever since are sown under the citrus just before they are moved outside (I live in 6a). If you have any container plants sow basil underneath at the periphery, once they get strong they'll grow tall and bunch out. I produce so much basil in this fashion that the last couple of years I've started eating a lot more saag, kookoo sabzi, and creamed "spinach" (mostly basil, rocket, sorrel, Good King Henry, and danderlions). Oh yeah, the ducks also love love love basil, they'll flat out murder a fellow for basil.
