Lots of diffrent foods - HotPot
Hot Pot at home!
So apparently because of corona the Asians stores stared to bring hotpot stuff here because people are staying at home. Which did not happen before on this scale. We met two of our vaccinated friends and made an amazing hopot.
I used the "Little Sheep Mushroom Soup Base" I managed to get in London around 2019. And used an instant pot as a hot pot. It worked pretty well. Played with the Sauté setting
eggs, NOT hummus, keto
Posted yesterday in a keto group and I we thought we gotta try.
Surprisingly tastes pretty good, it does have the flavor of a good dip similar to hummus, would have not guessed it not hummus from a distance.
Got a new wok! Its carbon steel, so had to season it. Then gave it a test run with Morning Glory (water spinach).
This is why carbon steel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8kJE4f4bgtM
I did it finally
I used roughly this recipe: https://www.chilipeppermadness.com/chili-pepper-recipes/hot-sauces/fermented-aji-garlic-hot-sauce/ but I had red Anaheim peppers rather than yellow ají ones, and I fermented a mix of the Anaheims with red sweet peppers because I have a low tolerance
It's good! Very hot for me, still, but the strong garlic flavor I wanted too 🌶🔥🧄
More ramen, this time tried the two main types - Shouyu ramen (the clear) and Miso ramen (the cloudy one). Like the Shoyu more, however haven't found a low-sugar replacement for the Mirin yet.
Both use the same soup which has:
fish, diy indoor smoker
So I built a stove top smoker based on this video.
Internal and ambient probe.
Drilled a hole in to a stainless steel bowl for a knob I 3d printed, and another for the probes to go on.
The Wok did not take damage but will look for a dedicated one for long term so it won't accumulate.
It won't do a 7kg brisket cunk of meat, but it does work great for 2kg salmon.
Used traeger pellets for the smoke.
Produced about the same amount of smoke as searing steaks on a pan.
Salmon at 90-100C Internal temp at 64-66. Came out great.
meat in stock, cheese
Last weeks 2hr pressure bone broth is today's onion soup
I believe all food is beautiful
An instance for cooking and eating!
