Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
I suppose that cooking can be considered a hobby, even if it usually is done every day as it is necessary to eat.

At periods I do put in some extra miles doing more advanced cooking like Sole Walewska from the beginning.
Cooking includes some technical skill, chemistry and actual most technical disciplines when I think about it.

Today when shopping groceries I came a cross a piece of meat that was recommended by Johan Jureskog a big meat chef here in Sweden he won Cooking-OS 2004. cook
Off course it's a sales trick to but someone who is known on the package, but then again I am not sure he would lend his name to something if it wasn't good.

Anyway it wasn't really expensive just 15.5 EUR/kg so I bought half a kilo.
I will always buy and try something ones, it is the only way to figure out for oneself if it is as good as the advertising says.

Now to my problem and why I need some local expertise help here.
This meat is Scottish highland beef, and it's called flap steak, have never heard of it.
And I am not sure what the best way of action is here to make the best out of this steak.

Any suggestions anyone?

Today it will be fresh tona with aioli maybe I spice the aioli up with some lime.
With some Spanish Via del Campo Rosado to go with it.

Best Regards A

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Flap, like flank, is a bit fibrous, benefits from a marinade, and is generally sliced perpendicular to the grain after cooking.

I grill it sometimes to make a thai beef salad (beef nam tok - not exactly a local dish). I generally marinade it in soy, worcestershire, a dash of fish sauce, and trimmings from a few herbs I use in the final dish: cilantro, mint, lemongrass, etc.

I've also seen flap used in fajitas and tacos. Again, not very local, but the same idea: marinade, grill, slice thin.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Okey thanks. smile

How much is really lokal today, most countries and food takes influences from all over the world.

I realize that a friend of mine that is crazy about barbecues everything was on his way to barbecue a flank steak ones, when I was there.
He was going to do it on top of the coal lighter to get it super hot, just a couple of seconds on each side.
I think he sade that he only hade marinated it in salted water.
I guess I have to sharpen up my knifes then.
I seen them doing flank steak and cutting it on TV too and actually it was often done in a Asian style dish.

Additionally, a decent beating from a meat hammer prior to marinating can help break down the fibers for additional tenderization.

(OP)
Thanks analogkid2digitalman for the tipp.

I am not shore if this particular cut of beef would benefit from beating it is quite thin to begin with and the muscle fibers goes more as in the first picture then a cut that is thicker and with grains as the second.



With "tough" meat you can always go low heat and long cooking, like when you do pulled pork.

I think what makes this one "tough" is that it has a membrane outside the actual meat is okey, so going with a hot quick frying sealing it up and keeping the juices inside and making it rear to above medium inside, would be best I think.
As I understand it, it is a quite lean meat not much fat in it.

Flank is for making fajitas! bandito
Let it sit in Italian salad dressing a couple of hours.
Add more garlic and cumin. No. Much more than that.
Grill, not too long. Don't dry it out.
Cut very thin and always crosswise to grain on 42° angle from vertical. smile
Roll in tortilla with chopped tomato, onion, jalepeno peppers, little lemon juice and cilantro leaf.
Serve with refried beans topped with cheese and tortilla chips (Doritos) and avocado, lemon, cilantro, onion tomato salad.

Well I think Alistair are right about the beef, he suggested it was more like sirloin.
I haven't taken it out of the package but it looks more round as a sirloin then flat and thin like a flank steak.
I haven't decided when to eat it yet, guess I have to make the decision what to make of it when opening it, so I can have a closer look.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Flap meet and skirt steak are similar here. It's a fatty cut of meet with a grain so it does matter how you cut it. Cook it fast and hot but leave it medium rare in the middle. Cut it across the grain. It's great on top of a salad. After cooking the meat in a pan or on the grill, Add some olive oil and minced garlic, pepper, and some herbs such as rosemary or thyme. Then, deglaze the pan with some red wine and balsamic vinegar. Whisk it all together to dress the salad and crumble fets cheese on top. Arugula or other more hearty greens work great here.

Flap meat is also fantastic for burritos and tacos if you want to go Mexican. Add lots of chili powder and cumin on top of the basics. It's also fantastic in Chinese stir fry.

Cooking is my hobby. I corned a lamb leg, cooked it on the bbq, and made my own horseradish sauce today. Don't mind the blue paper towels, I forgot to buy them so my wife tapped in to my stash. I'm not in the picture before anybody asks.


Also made a strawberry rhubarb pie with a butter and tallow crust.

I have a horseradish at the allotment, it's like weed if you don't watch out, I have put it in a "bad" place to keep it from spreading all over.
The rhubarb has just come up, I have at least 4 or 5 of them it's at least 3 varieties.

The rhubarb is the big one at the bottom of the garden in the middle.



The strawberry's are at least two month away.

It looks lika fillet of beef, did you fry it after the sous vide to give it some color?
Now I am getting hungry.

I went to the allotment and there are rhubarbs and it's possible to pick them too. smile

And I found these..



It's stone morels, they actually contain poison so you need to dry them for at least tree month before using them, or boil them three times with water change.
I always dry them, it keeps the taste, they still say that one should not eat them, but we have always done so and it isn't often.
They are really tasty so you don't need much to do a sauce.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

After cooking it via sous vide, you carmalise it. Very hot avacado oil and 'sear' it for 3 or 4 minutes, turning it once. Avacado oil is one of the highest temperature oils... I used to use peanut oil until I found out.

Without browning it, I don't know how it would taste, but it looks unappetising. It was a chunk of fillet... it looks well done, but was was actualy med-rare. That was a small one... the market didn't have actual fillets when I picked this up... I usually buy a fillet and chop it as required. It wasn't planned, but a consequence of this thread... I should have had some horseradish to go with it...

The nice thing about sous vide is that you can do up a roast and have it medium rare throughout... not just the inside... By bagging it and cooking it in water, none of the juices are lost and the steak remains quite moist. I don't use a torch to brown, although I've heard some people do... will try that one of these months.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I didn't know that some morels were toxic... I've always just eaten them... they're great, one of my favourite. I don't get out anymore, so no wandering the bush looking for them. Nearly always have mushrooms with steaks... I don't barbeque... the mushrooms fall through the grate... a little pepper, salt, onion flakes, powdered garlic and smoked paprika... getting hungry again...

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Well not all morels are toxic the topp hat ones that comes in the autumn are not.
As far as I know it's only stone morels that are they contain gyromitrin, but almost all of it goes away when drying them, and it's seems it varies how much they have from the beginning also, it can effect the lever and the nervsystem.

Well when I make biff fillet steak it usually looks like that, and I make it medium rare, in the frying pan.
We do not have avocado oil, never heard of it, peanut oil, we can get.
But I always use cold pressed rape seed oil and butter.
And a really hot cast iron pan one or two minutes on each side to get it to seal up, then I turn the heat down and wait until I gets the right "bounce" then salt, black and white pepper and then put it on the side to rest wile a do the sauce.
Which type depends on the mode. smile
Lately green pepper sauce, a splash of cognac and readymade stock, roughly crushed green pepper corns, and some full cream to round it of with.

I don't barbeque... the mushrooms fall through the grate.
Put them on a skewer and marinade them with a bit of oil and your spices. winky smile
Or you just have to sacrifice one or two of them. smile
Oil, fresh garlic and salt works too.
And that works really good with haricots verts also, especially if barbequing..

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I make a distinction between a road trip and just traveling.
I have enjoyed some epic road trips when I was (much) younger.
One trip we had no particular destination. A hitch-hiker with a similar lack of direction rode with us for three days.

Another trip, we passed Seattle Washington while one of the group was sleeping.
The next day he was anxious to get home, but we reassured him that we were headed for Vancouver and we kept passing signs that said Vancouver ahead, Seattle behind.
We were only 40 miles from Vancouver when he realized that we were headed for Vancouver Washington, not Vancouver Canada.

I suggest a ticket with an open return date.
You'll have fun.

The client had to catch a plane in an hour and had to wait 15 minutes... also Z28. That trip was faster, but shorter (only 100 miles)...

On a trip from Vancouver to Winnipeg I was crossing Saskatchewan at a high rate of speed at about 2:00 am.
I was gaining rapidly on a vehicle ahead when on came the flashing red light.
I thought that I was done. I slowed down, he slowed down. We were both slowing and I was getting closer.
I was almost up to him when he turned left onto a side road.
It was a pickup truck with his turn signal mounted on the roof.

CC'd, steamed it, balanced it, painted the inside of the block with glyptol (as I remember the name) which I scrounged from an electrical guy, etc. The air rushing through the carbs was music to my ears... they were a lot noisier than I had expected.

It was a 1970... the 454 was not stock and had to be ordered specially.

Double bagger last week. Roasted a duck, gobbled that up. Due to various reasons the timing/temperature profile was whack, but half an hour's resting was probably an important thing. Anyway, the next day the carcase and all the fat goes into a stock, which my wife used to make a mushroom risotto. The stock was so juicy no butter or cheese was needed. Ha.

Dried and salted fish and meats feed the crews of transocean voyages. The slave trade would not have put that on the passenger menu. Bacalao salado is everywhere in Portugal. All the grocery stores keep it on hand. I'm sure they eat more of it per capita than anywhere else and they make it very well. Juicy fruits cut the salty taste, so are often eaten with preserved meats. Serrano ham slices served on top of mellon is very popular and simple tapa recipe. Use the real jamon Serrano, if you can get it. Not the soft fake one that comes presliced in small plactic packages. Makes a lot of difference. 08:30 and I'm already hungry. I'm off to buy some bacalao salado in 30m.

2019 I was in Barcelona, first weekend i stayed with my friends in a Airbnb and then I went to Sabadell to work for a couple of days, and then I stayed on in Sitges by myself for a couple of day afterward.
The company we was visiting, of course was showing us around to the good restaurants, and they hade really good ham,
It can be quite difficult to find those good places if you are a turist.
The lokals have a much better knowledge of what is genuine.
I liked Sitges even though it's a popular plays for homosexuals, I have no problemas with them, it's not a big place and there are a lot of lokals not just turists and it's close to Barcelona just 15-20 minuts away with train and much cheaper.
After a day or to you started recognizing people waking there dogs, kids playing football in the streets, the waitresses banning them afraid they will shoot the ball so all the nice glasses they put out on the tables would be crushed, the next evening they where going for skateboard building ramps of old fruit boxes instead. smile

Thats what we like.

Yes the transport prices are reasonable and the trains are nice. Much better and faster than flying. Malaga to Madrid is 2:45, quiet, relaxing, wide seats, snack bar, minimal security hassles. Flying takes 4h plus a taxi/train to/from town centers and feel like a bull going to bullfight. Out here we take the ferries between islands, except when going to the far ones. Flying = PIA.
Spain was one of the first countries to legalise same sex marriages, so everybody here got over that a long time ago. As long as the tapas/pintxos are free and nobody smashes the wine glasses with a football, everyone is more or less feliz.

I'm desalting the fish. The market didn't have cod, so we bought cherne, which is a species of grouper. Very popular substitute for cod out here.

This thing with potato's, I planted mine yesterday, and I have hade them in the earth seller + 6 C and these Red Duke of York which is a early variety they start growing down there making super long shots, compared to the Swedish mandel (almond) potato a late variety.

Red Duke of York is the ones that planted and the shots is twice the length than seen in the picture.
The almond portatos are in the eggbox.



I put some plant cloth over them as there still can become minus degrees.
Not shore what to do with them as I can't store them in the freezer, to make them stop shoot away like that?

Colombia sounds a bit to exotic to me, wouldn't mind visiting Costa Rica sometime though.

I did plant my potato onions to day, this variety I got in the mail from the Swedish agriculture department for conservation of historical cultivated plants, you can get them for free if they have some to spare.
It is a way to keep them from disappearing, since they isn't grown commercially this is an old one from Råneälvdalen, it's quit a bit Norths from where I live.
You put one in and then they divides themselves and then you get 4 or 5 in the autum.

You'll be ready for the extended pandemic... sad

The Karankawa Indians in the coastal marshes in Texas used to cover themselves in bear grease to keep the mosquitos away. No escaping them either. Night fishing there in summer is horrible. No wonder that they were described as being cannibals. The mosquitos surely drove them to it.

My wife is originally from near to Medellin, Colombia. We meet in Cartegena. Colombia is great, but can be problematic from time to time... like now. I wanted to stay in Venezuela, but Chavez was raising in power at the time, so I thought it wouldn't be such a good idea to do that. Turns out that Chavez was OK when compared to Maduro.

No, there was a hipe with whole wheat bread, and some readymade sandwiches still comes whit that choice.
But when I think about it, the shrimp and seafood ones, is usually with white flour or a mix white flour and some whole flour too.
Not shore if it is a bit to much of a classic to change.

If the baguette is made the right way it should be made with high protein flour and slowly fermented.

There is all types of breads in store to buy, everything from whole grain to white with wheat, barley, oats and rye.
When I buy bread it mostly whole grain sourdough bread.

Or what we call knäckebröd, not sure there is a English word for it.
I hade been quit annoyed over this bread for some time they moved the production to Switzerland but it is an old Swedish or Nordic type of bread.
And usually it comes with a hole in the middle because in the old days they put them on rods under the sealing to keep it away from mice and rats.
But for some time there was a production problem so it come with the hole too.
So one day having breakfast I was complaining to CH about this and sade that I might send them a picture and complain.
So he took this photo with his mobil and sent it to me headline Brödgnäll! (Bread bitching!)

About the flap steak, it was quite thin 3-4 cm.
I did do it really quick and hot and put the spices on afterwards, not burning them, quite rare actually, it ended up Dik style with carrots and asparagus and a mixed tomato sallad.

I intended to take a picture but the camera was not working as expected, It turned out the batteries was not good.

Since it was to much for one meal I saved half to the day after and as I hade some pita breads in the freezer it became a bit more kebab style with some more spices and just heating it a bit with sallad, tomato's, avocado, onion and lemon, with some light crème fraiche mixed with Heinze sweetchili sauce and sumac.

It is. Many things don't seem to cook well when made in small quantities too. How do you make lasagna for one, or even two. We just cook the reasonable quantities of most meals on the weekends so we will have ready-made meals to heat up during the week. Thats good to do especially for those things (lasagna, bean salads, Chile con carne, etc.) that taste even better the next day. Today is lamb shwramas, from what was left of the leg I cooked on Tuesday. I will make fresh Arabic bread to go with that. I always found the hardest part about cooking for one is accumulating enough motivation to do it.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Yes the motivation part is true.
In best case it's on the weekends as you sade.
Since I been working from home for more then a year it's gets even worse.
Normally I eat lunch at work in the cantina there is usually 3-4 four things to choose from and salladsbar and things.
When working at home it takes kind of dubble the effort to prepare two meals not counting breakfast, then just one.
There is not enough imagination for that either.
So in best case there is the same meal for lunch and dinner 2 days in a row, like lasagne on smoked salmon with
spinach.
In worse case no lunch at all.
Now in the summer I changed strategi and just have sour milk and granola with a banana in it, for lunch.
Working from home, one does not move around as much as when one is at work either, so probably one need less food too.
Since I am the one cooking I have a hard time cooking something that I don't feel like eating at that moment too.
If some else cooks I am happy to eat it whatever it is and just glad I didn't have to do the jobb myself. smile

I had so much trouble repairing the radial saw my neighbour loaned me, so I did not cut any stones. The saw repair took 6 weeks. I got it back. It worked 3 times and broke again. I had it repaired again. 3 weeks and gave it back to the neighbour immediately, before it broke again. I think my radial saw is too small for cutting anything big enough to be useful.

I have picked up some flat rounded stones from the beach to use in the BBQ in gas place of charcoal briquettes. After sorting the ones with too many gas pockets that exploded, the remaining stones have done well. I get a nice and even distribution of heat across the grill. I cooked a thick steak yesterday that turned out great.

The artichoke lasagna sounds interesting. I've never heard of that. I dont fancy cleaning all the leaves, but it just might be worth a try.

My nona's recipe isn't all that different from any other, except maybe including a layer of ricotta cheese, which gives it a creamy texture. I have used cream cheese when ricotta was not available. Almost as good. I have recently tried a modification substituting the ground beef with shredded lamb for the meat sauce. I was very happy with how it turned out. Or maybe the happy was due to the grappa. I'll have to check the % on that bottle.

Your cookware will not last long if you use it as a source of nutritional iron, but I guess it would still be a lot cheaper than iron/vitamin tablets. An adult woman needs only 18 mg of iron per day.

It is acidic (corrosive)foods, like tomatoes or apples that will pick-up iron from the cast iron pan. For this reason cast iron is not recommended for cooking those items. Cast iron must be "seasoned" with oils to prevent sticking. This seasoning process produces a plastic coating that is chemically the same as alkyd (oil-based) paint. If you corrode the iron with acidic foods you will lose the seasoning coating on the pan, which is a pain to redo. I think that the best that can be said is that cast iron pans are in no way harmful the your health, but not as actually being nutritious. You could just as well drop an iron nut or bolt into any pan, if that is your goal.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Have you tried sous vide? My son introduced us to salmon sous vide; it was AWESOME and almost as good as sashimi, texture-wise. Not sure if it's worth the effort to dedicate limited kitchen volume to a sous vide setup, but the texture is awesome; might be worthwhile borrowing someone's setup to cook pork chops that way. OF course, you'd have to do a sear afterwards, if that's your thing.

It's not a pain to redo, I think there is one detail that most don't know. Animal fats don't don't contain alkyds. You can't season cast iron with bacon. Use vegetable oils to quickly and easily season a frying pan. Linseed oil was the original base for alkyd paints.

The recipe is written in Swedish but there is a youtube film too with the Indian chief.

Had most of what I needed at home just had to buy some ginger, and beef, we don't have cardamom pods here have never managed to find any so I went for seeds instead.

The first thing to do is put the spices in the coco milk and let it soak in.
It should be like 1 dl coco milk and 1 dl vinegar I used (rice vinegar), the problem is we have the coco milk in tin jars, and I forgot to shake it so with all the fat at the top I gott 4 dl in the mix instead of 1 dl. surprise
My plan right now is to pour of 3 dl before I mix the spices with the rest.
That is going to be the marinade, and save the rest for some other time or use it to dilute the Vindaloo if it gets to hot.
I put 5 chilis in it. winky smile
Then I will put the beef in and marinate it, and finish it tomorrow, maybe I even save it until Thursday and heat it up again.

(OP)
The meat is in the marinade.
I read that it's originally made with pork.
And I realized that the marinade would actually work really well as spice on a Christmas ham too maybe with less chili, with all it's Christmas spices, cinnamon, cardamom, clove and mustard seeds. smile
We usually covers our Christmas ham with mustard and breadcrumbs and decorate them with cloves so it's not so far from.

I reckless n cooking and then letting it sit for a couple of days is best.

The army cooks usually mature a curry as well before serving for a couple of days.

If your going to put potatoes in then wait until your heating it up to serve.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Well haven't decided if there will be rice, potatoes or and naan bread.

I tasted the marinade after mixing it, but it didn't taste so hot, but old and wise as I am winky smile I will wait until I fried it and cooked it before tweaking the seasoning.

The onion comes in after frying the meat in this recipe and also paprika powder and a bit of tomato pure.

I did add some olive oil and a little fresh cilantro/coriander leaves on top.

We make a lot of cold served, mixed bean, red, white and green or yellow string beans, chicken peas with onion or cucumber and mint with yogurt dressings. Or fresh spice leaves combination salads. Only a mix of various spice leaves. Mint, basil, time, sage +++ mix up whatever you think goes together. Sometimes what you think are rather odd combinations are pretty good.

Just white beans with cilantro alone is good too.

I think it was hamburgers that night.

Tomatillos grow easily here in the cooler part of California. They have a mild flavor and are slightly tart. They make an excellent base for sauces as a result. Roasting them softens them so they can be crushed up and adds a lot of flavor.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Don't think I ever eaten tomatillos or salsa on them.

We can by Physalis here in the store but we just eat them as fruit, I know you can grow them if you have a greenhouse.

When I was in Budapest in the Great Market Hall (Nagyvásárcsarnok) half of it was filled with sales stands selling paprika and paprika powder. smile



I am not sure I have a favorit dish, if you don't count Surströmming but that is not something that we eat on a monthly bases.
After ponder a while one of my favorits though is cold marinade pork filet with French potato sallad even though I don't do that one so often either.

Got me thinking maybe I should do it now since it would work well now when I am working from home as lunch.

You fry the pork filet salt and pepper, and then finish it in the oven on low heat, then you put it in the marinad
1 dl chines soya
1 table spoon white wine vinegar
1/2 teaspoon black pepper and salt
1 teaspoon basil, thyme and oregano
1-3 sliced garlic cloves

and when it's cooled down you put in the fridge for a day or two.

Potato sallad roughly diced potato's whit or whiteout peel, depending on what you like and the potato it needs to be some a variety that don't fall apart when you boil them.
Boil them and make a heated marinade on
oil, white wine vinegar, mustard, pepper, sliced red onions, capers and leek.
Mix the warm marinade with the warm potato's and salt.
Spring onion and shives or radish what ever is avalibul is added after it has cooled down a bit.
The amounts is up to taste.



A typic summer dish and for big partys since you can make it before hand.
The potato sallad can be served cold or slightly warm.
Works with a lot of things actually.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Tomatillos are in the same family as tomatoes, which is why I don't grow them. I have been trying to save seeds, so I try to avoid plants that will cross breed. The other option is to keep them far enough away from plants they will cross breed with.

Green salsa is good, but most of it has too much salt.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Hmm keeping them apart depends on what is pollinating them.
Tomatoes can pollinate each other if you shake them or the wind does but the absolut best pollinator for tomatoes is bumblebees, but they can spread pollen over great distances.
Last summer there was very few bumblebees around.
But I had employed one that came around within the same half hour every evening carefully going through all the tomato flowers and the chili. smile

I have never hear of anyone that have been allergic against bumblebees, wasps and and somewhat to bees sure.

Christer collided with a bumblebee when he was driving his Bandit ones he sade if he hadn't hade his visor down it would have ended badly.

Hmm and I who was just to tell the story when I was little and everybody told us that they just "burned" you when it was sunny outside because there black fur became hot.
So me and my sister used to catch them with our hands when it was cloudy outside and I hade made a little cage with mosquito net that we put them in and gave them suger water, but then after a day we let them out again.

They actually sting and can do it more then ones not as a wasp that only gets one chance.
But they usually just do it if you squeeze them by mistake, not like wasps that can attack you to protect there nest.

Got stung tree times ones when I put a spade in a earth wasp nest.
I was thinking where do all this flies come from then I realized it was wasps so I just backed of 5 meter and stod still until they went back to there business, then I went and bought a bugspray and sprayed the nest and put a sack of earth over it, it was my first year at the allotment.

I don't have a problem with bugs as long as they don't try to attack me on my own territory. 🙂

Had to check this bumblebee allergi up, never heard of it.
It turns out it is really rare, but has become more usual, I am guessing it is because they bread bumblebees for pollination in greenhouses so there is more people coming in contact with them.
And it seems that you must have been stung by a bumblebee ones before, since a allergic reaction like that only comes the second time, the first there isn't any antibodies.
But I guess in your case it could have been the sarcoidosis that played into it, she must have stung you more then ones too I guess.
Good thing it turned out okey.

Besides bees (bumble and honey), we have hummingbirds, and hummingbird moths.
Wind does pollinate some plants, but also mosquitoes also do some pollination.

Actually, it has been said that bee stings can be good for most of us. But would not recommend it as some people have reactions to bee stings.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
No hummingbirds. sad
But we have what I would call hummingbird moths they are large and have long trunks and they hover. smile
And makes a quite large buzzing sound usually just comes out in the evening and at night.

There are many pollinating insekts but the bumblebees are the best because they can vibrate much harder to get pollen to come off, then the others and the fur makes it stick all over too.

Hummingbirds can scare the crap out of you. They fly right up in your face, and with the long beak.

They also seem to like the red handle on my garage door opener.

Here's my Pinterest link to my recipe collections. Med & Mideast foods. I recently added many Portugese recipes. Sorry. The 1000+ pins need some more sorting. I'll get there eventually. I'm trying to decide if I should sort based on country of the dish's origin, or type of food, chicken, seafood, veg, deserts, etc. What do you think? The filing system is very flat, as the folder can only have 1 level of sub folders. I can't do Spain - seafood, Spain- Pork. Its either by country, OR by type of food.

Peanut butter and banana sandwich? love

Hmm only bought peanut butter twice..
Lats time just 2 weeks ago, I did it to make chicken satay with peanut sauce.
Never tried it on a sandwich.
But when I stod in the store there where smooth and crunchy and salt and sweet and naturel.
I bought smooth naturel I was going to spice it with coconut milk, chili, garlic and ginger.

peanut butter and jam sandwiches as well. I'm a fan of what I call triple decker PB&J sandwiches where I have 3 pieces of bread, in the first opening I put peanut butter, and regular butter, and in the second opening just jam. My personal preference is strawberry jam, but you do you.

Creamy, a little salt, but enough to actually taste it. Natural or unnatural? What's the difference? The natural one costs 50% more?

I was surprised to find it here. I've never seen it anywhere in EU, except for in one US speciality shop. This one is in a regular grocery chain market and comes from Canada. Very unusual to see it in Spain. I don't know if the peanuts are grown in Canada or not. It might be trans-shipped to avoid EU import tariffs.

Raspberry jam works for me. Peach isn't bad, if you want sweeter.

Of those I see only one that looks like what I have seen.

I'm on a low salt diet, so I would be looking at how much sodium each of them has (My recommendation might not be good for you).

I like crunchy, but I am not sure that would work for everyone. Crunchy also works on crackers.

To me the more important thing is how smooth it spreads. This is more about how it holds the oil.
Stiff peanut butter does not spread very well, and will tear whatever it is spread on.

FYI, my wife likes to put peanut butter in mouse traps, as it works better than cheese. Otherwise she hates it.

Unfortunately the Australian meat industry has pushed a change recently which mean that our commercial lamb is not as good as used to be. They've redefined lamb as

‘an ovine animal that:
(a) is under 12 months of age; or
(b) does not have any permanent incisor teeth in wear.’

This means a lamb is able to cut one or both of its permanent central incisor teeth, as long as they are not in wear

In practice that's about 4 weeks older (and heavier).

I thought halal slaughter was very specific, or is it different in different parts, they cut the troth and the heart must pump out the blood.

Quote (The Swedish Board of Agriculture)

All animals slaughtered in Sweden must be stunned first.
Thus, religious slaughter is only allowed if the animals are stunned before they are slaughtered.
Slaughtering methods where the animals are not anesthetized before slaughter are completely prohibited in Sweden.

It is forbidden to slaughter animals without anesthesia
Animals must be protected from unnecessary suffering.
Therefore, animals must always be anesthetized before slaughter in Sweden.
They must be completely anesthetized before they are bled, and the slaughterhouse must not do anything to the body before the animal has died.
It is stated in the Animal Welfare Act.

This means that certain religious slaughter methods are not allowed in Sweden.
This applies, for example, to kosher slaughter and other traditional slaughter of unattended animals.
However, the slaughter methods that follow the animal welfare rules are permitted.

Halal slaughter is allowed if the animals are anesthetized.
In Sweden, it is allowed to slaughter animals according to the Muslim method halal if the animals are anesthetized. An anesthetic method accepted by many Muslims is to anesthetize animals with electricity.
The method is often used in the regular slaughter of poultry and sheep. It is thus possible to halal slaughter poultry and sheep in Sweden without violating the animal welfare rules.

In the Jewish slaughter method, kosher anesthesia before bleeding is not accepted. All such slaughter is thus prohibited in Sweden, as it is not permitted to slaughter unattended animals.

They don't just run bulls there. That's just the most famous run. This happens in towns big and small all over Spain with many variations of local practices. In Barcelona they do a people run and everyone carries huge very sparky sticks "welding type" pyrotechnics to chase the demons from the city. That scares the heck out of me. End of September, if you want to see.

What else to we do to scare away demons? Gargoyles on buildings, tying a rope (or something like it) to your leg, and jumping off a tall structure.

Sorry, to beef eater here.

Me too, but there is a lot better to be had than what they drag off the bull ring floor.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I'm not on zero salt. Just limited to less than 1500mg/day.
Which is sort of limiting when a can of soup can have 1250mg of sodium. Bread can be 250mg per slice. Most cheese is also bad. Don't ask about potato chips.

Most of the salt is not necessary anyway. And I am finding my taste is better without the salt blinding me from other flavors.

I actually think so much salt is addictive, and makes people want to drink more (which is good for soda makers). And soda is really not that good for you (moderation is good).

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Yes I admit I am a salt junkie.
I really don't like "sweet" as a taste, don't drink soda, I am all for salt and sour.
Hmmm and chocolate.
I don't have your character, even if a doctor would tell me to draw back on something, I am not sure I would.
I try to keep to having a bit of everything and not a lot of one thing, that is my moto so far, where it will end up we will see.
But a bit of salt always enhances the taste of things, meaning it should not taste "salty".
Unless it is chips then of course. winky smile

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I have no salt chips, and the taste is different without salt, but I still like the crunch. They are still also filling.
But I don't eat them as much without the salt.

Sweet is not that great of a taste to me. I was more into it when I was younger, but not now.
Have you ever tried sweet salsa? Worst thing.
But salsa without salt is still good.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
Okey I admit I like fruit and it can be sweet at times, but my favorite juice is fresh pressed pink grapefruit from Texas, don't tell winky smile it is not good for the environment...

Never tried sweet salsa we have a huge verity of ready made ones, I guess the one with pineapple is a bit sweet, but I never tried it.
Usually they are mild, medium or hot.
How much sugar or salt content they have, I do not know haven't looked but they don't taste salty or sweet.

Sugar and salt have been used as preservative method here as long as they have been around, nowadays there are other things for that, not sure they are any better in the long run for your health though.

The few times i have bought salsa in a jar it's 250 gr I usually don't consume it before it gets moldy even though I have it in the fridge like + 4-8 C so I guess it doesn't contain as much preservative after all.

If it goes bad, the peppers aren't hot enough. They should blister your fingers if you pick them without wearing gloves.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I am more about the flavor, not the heat. So jalapeños don't do it for me. I prefer different pepper types.
Mild or medium, either way. I also like the smell of roasting onions, and peppers on the grill.
Throw on some spiced potatoes, and mushrooms, with a plate of sliced tomatoes, with a few deviled eggs.
Also good is a roasted pineapple on the side (yes I know sweet, but the roasting blunts some of that).




RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Can you get poblano peppers? They are not hot. Just a bit spicy and have a very unique flavor. They are great for stuffing with meat or cheese. You can deep fry them, if Doc says yes to fried food.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I try to avoid fried foods, but once in a while is not bad. My wife likes to roast and peel peppers (mostly bells) then stuff them with a rice, tomatoes (or Rotel), and other stuff. It is very good.
I think she likes bells because they are bigger than most other peppers.

Poblano's do have a lot of flavor.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

We get absolutely huge red bell peppers in Spain. Never seen them so large. Garlic too. But unfortunately no poblanos. I'm looking for seeds, but the only supplier had a very bad rating on supplying seeds that actually sprouted. Not good.

It says that dried Poblano is called Ancho is that correct?

“Logic will get you from A to Z; imagination will get you everywhere.“
Albert Einstein

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I think that is correct. But dried seeds might not sprout, depending on how they were dried.
They grow Poblano's here, and I do grow them myself, but in pots, so the peppers tend to be smaller. Something about pots. But if I grow them in the ground, they don't develop fast enough.
I have struggled with getting some types of seeds, mainly a south american verity, but had some luck with Amazon. But we might have a larger number of suppliers here. The Poblano seeds are available in the stores from major seed suppliers, but are not seen in smaller stores.

We do have limits on some types of crops, mainly types of trees/apples, and I would expect some that I am not aware of. But this is to protect the seed quality of some of the larger spreading crops. I do know that corn will interbreed for a distance of miles, for example.

The interesting thing is some crops will grow differently if grown in different places. Maybe it is sun, soil, water, I can't be sure. Again corn is one of those that change from south america to north america. The size of the cornels is what I have noticed.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

We've got SA corn here. Shorter, stubbier, larger grain, more starch, less sugar and a tighter cone shape. I think more flavor, but not necessarily better flavor. Just different. SA corns in general are ancient varieties with no GM. They can be tough.

It could be a processing thing, but all the anchos (wide) I've seen are much shorter and rounder, thinner skins than the poblanos I know from Laredo and MX.


Whereas with these, only 2 will fit on a dinner plate. Thick juicy skins too.

About the gas, even though it is super annoying, it is just money, Russia's war on Ukraina annoys me more. sad

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I'm not annoyed at it... it was reasonably predictable. Because of your locale, you might be a lot more concerned about it (maybe annoyed is the wrong choice of words). We have friends in Romania, and they are really concerned.

No annoyed is the right word.
I have no concern for Sweden's safety at this point and not for a along time ahead.
If Putin would consider a two front war which he can't afford right now, Sweden wouldn't be his first choice, there is so many others to choose from.
What annoys me is that we are geting pushed into NATO by Finland and a bunch of politicians that don't have the courage to wait it out because of the upcoming elections.
I know Finlands situation is much different from ours, I just which they could wait it out a bit longer befor deciding and just not rush into it.
Russia isn't the firepower everyone thought it was and it wont be for a long time after this has ended.
For Ukraina I am mostly sad and pissed off.
It might have been reasonably predictable that some type of intrusion was going to happen but I don't remember anyone predicting this, least of all Putin.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

I love cooking. I recently made dinner for my lady for her birthday. Beet and apple salad, mushroom risotto with scallops, and chocolate lava cake for dessert. My plating could use some work, but it all turned out relatively ok. Not much lava in the cakes, cooked them a couple minutes too long. The wine is an Old Vines Foch from Quail's gate winery.

Been working on homemade pasta, basics only so far, spaghetti, fettuccine, rigatoni, but want to try some stuffed ones soon.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

(OP)
What kind of cheese is it on the apple and bet root sallad?

A favorit is, beet roots, with warm goat cheese, roasted walnuts and honey on a little mixed sallad.
You can warm the goat cheese on a bit of bread too, but it's a optional.

Feta. Those are quick pickled red onions and it's a bed of spinach and arugula with a balsamic vinegar dressing.

Paella

No seafood, no problem.
Rabbit is very popular on the landward side of the mountain. Many tourists only go to the beach, so they may not have seen these.

Chicken, rabit & caracoles (escargot) or any two
https://paella-party.com/original-paella-recipe/

Pork (cubes), chorizo, chicken or any combination.

Beef & chorizo

This one is really nice,
Rabbit & artichokes popular in Barcelona where most of the artichokes are grown.


I like more variety of flavors in paella, but sometimes it's good,
Black paella, Calamari (squid) with its ink

Even more flavourful can be variations of arrow caldoso, a more soupy rice. Even more than risotto. Great with fresh cod fish. Also made that with fresh tuna cubes.

No rice, no problem. Make with those short soup noodles instead. Or with a combination of rice and noodles, Arroz con fideos.

A bit different, but along the same track is a pan simmered tuna and onions, can be made with some potatoes and red bell peppers, etc. Very popular in Cadiz. Google, Atun encebollado.
Even better with red tuna.

https://tomaandcoe.com/blog/cadiz-tuna-almadraba-e...
That variation is w/ tomato. Most don't seem to have tomato, or only just a bit.

And if you like saffron, heres a saffron cream sauce for speghetti (this cooked as a risotto style, but no rice, only with noodles) can add shrimp (prawns, or mussels, or your favourite something else ...)

Jayrod, if you start stuffing pasta, the stuffed ravioli is supreme. Squash, sweet potato, and other similar tasting fillings with sage and butter are amazing. Smoked cures meats such as bacon or prosciutto will really put it over the top. A touch of arugula or spinach before it cools off will make feel healthy as well.

RE: Cooking as a hobby ? Need some local inside tips for a dish here.

Dont forget a bit of truffle.

We have green sauce for that. Cilantro, olive oil, vinegar, a bit of almond paste. Can be made with with parsley if you're not a cilantro fan. Good with seafood.

Red sauce for meat though.

Both red and green are good with fried goat cheese.
