    I may have to try apple cider vinegar in green beans. My sister taught me how to make greens. Wash well, remove spines, put in a pot, cover with water, add some apple cider vinegar, tony scacheries and a smoked ham-hock. Then boil until tender and tasty.
    I'd steam them rather than boil them (using less water as opposed to more) because I try to keep the nutrient-loss-to-water factor as low as I can. And as I mentioned, make sure you get the *real* ACV, not the AC-flavored vinegar. Totally different.

    A couple years ago we made some homemade ACV from our fall cider-pressing (I have this ginormous old press) and almost all of it was amazingly, out-of-this-world good. I was surprised at how different it tasted from storebought, because for some reason I had the mindset of "vinegar is vinegar, right?" I brought a gallon of it to an event to cook with, and people who tasted just the vinegar were scrambling to find something in their encampment that they could bring some home in.

    I think we'll have to make some more this year.

    Sure sharks make rules that sweep those little fish into their jaws,
    and god will never make you free, for look who speaks for god.

    The only friend that poor folk have is truth that can't be killed,
    for victory goes not to the strong, but mainly to the skilled.
    So always question what you're told and ask who does it serve,
    and if that someone isn't you, give 'em what they deserve.

    To the left of reality. Behind reason. Right next to the backside of beyond.

    Anything home-made tastes better than store-bought. You should see what goes into genuine Basalmic vinegar.
    Madness does not always howl. Sometimes, it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "Hey, is there room in your head for one more?"

    I is before E except after C, then it's chaos man, mass chaos! Letters coming together into words, but then you go English and they put U's in places that just shouldn't go there... AHHHHHH!!!!!!!!

    My sanity left town along time ago and didn't leave a forwarding address. It's not missed.

    Super-cool video on Norse travel food, how to prepare it and cook it. Everything I saw was extremely period and authentic.

    Cooking in pottery on coals is one of my next to-do things, the mate has been messing about with clay for the last couple years, including digging & refining his own clay, as well as building a small wood/charcoal-fueled kiln, and doing some pit firings as well.

    Holy crap. Canary melons, ftw.

    Uber-ripe, delectably sweet with just the right amount of slightly fermenty, wine-like tang* to them, like a really good late-harvest Gewurtztraminer. So yummy.




    *also how I like my blackberries
