Growing cucumbers in my garden and as much as I love pickles, I decided to venture out into making cucumber muffins, inspired by zucchini muffins. I peeled the cucumber (mine are thick-skinned) and cut out most of the seeds. I grated it and squeezed out as much liquid as possible. Ended up with about 7 oz of grated cucumber for a dozen muffins. I made mine with minimal sugar, some chocolate chips, and some whole wheat flour. While you can taste the cucumber, it isn't over powering in any regard and tastes pretty nice. I would make them again.
Put a bit of herb liquor into my iced tea, it's fucking great.

Share what you just cooked up and talk about food. Debate snacks. Share recipes, if you'd like. But most importantly, for daily /ck/, talk about what you just made to eat. Here is an oven french fries recipe.

>>1202 You can also use thinly pounded meat or fat as skin, and I remember there being a recipe that uses actual pork skin as sausage skin, but can't find it atm. Alternatively, roll tightly into aluminium foil or heat-resistant plastic wrap, like a bonbon, and poach it until it starts floating. Unwrap and you've got a sausage.

Made some risotto today. Didn't have the wine so I substituted with 2 teaspoons of vinegar, and I used some premium olive oil instead of the shitty vegetable oil. We also ran out of parmesan cheese, so I used up the rest of some fancy smoked cheddar I had laying around. It was very good, first you'd have the flavor of chicken (via the broth), followed by some creamy smoky cheddar flavor, followed by a spicy tease of black pepper. Very few of the grains tasted undercooked; occasionally it was like biting a small grain of sand, and I think the wine would have accounted for a little more liquid, and thus cooking time. Overall though, it was delicious, and I think it would be a very easy dish to experiment with (eg different broth flavors or textures instead of the shallots) https://www.thespruceeats.com/risotto-recipe-for-beginners-996008

Post all about booze for cooking, be it beer, wine, rum, liquor, nihonshu, shaoxing, whisky, vodka, hard cider, tequila, vanilla extract or whatever. Maybe mention how you clean your kitchen with isopropyl alcohol. What do I look for in a beer for hot dogs? Are any of the ones Aldi sells good enough for it? Any cheap suggestions for hot dog beer?

Jewish cuisine and Biblically pious cooking JEWS 08/26/2020 (Wed) 01:30:32 No. 287 [Reply]
"THEY TRIED TO KILL US. THEY FAILED. LET'S EAT" I was invited here to share my cooking. I've been cooking Jewish foods lately, so I'm posting them first. Given 8chan's history, you all should be able to relate to the unofficial motto for Jewish feasts. I expect that I'll be doing most of the posting here, so feel free to ask me things. COOKED 1. Home-baked six-stranded challah. I stopped fucking with sourdough starter as soon as instant yeast was available again and darted straight for the king of breads: challah, or Ashkenazi Sabbath bread, named after the dough offering to be given to the Temple in Jerusalem. It's long been considered the best bread for French toast. Mine mostly follows Lan Lam's tangzhong-based recipe for Cook's Illustrated, adding two egg whites and removing 1/4 cup of water with seeds inside and outside, and as you can see, it's fucking excellent. I intend to try Yemenite breads if I can get my hands on the bakeware they use, but for now, I'm sticking with the best bread I know. 2. Cholent. I made this Ashkenazi-style Sabbath stew, vaguely thought to have originated with French Jews, for the first time on the eve of the Sabbath when some faggot shot people at a synagogue in Pittsburgh; his faggotry motivated me to dust off my family's Ashkenazi traditions. The round thing in the stew is retail stuffed derma or kishka, a bread-and-vegetable sausage that's the best part of the dish. Mine here is after Jamie Geller's with retail challah, short ribs, canned beans, and a shorter cooking time; if you follow her recipe, don't cut the cooking time when you're using dry kidney beans unless you want to asspain your guests. Lately I've been adding farro, lima beans, and sliced chuck to change things up. 3-11. Brisket, potato kugel, latkes, kasha varnishkes, ropa vieja, Yemenite chicken soup with matzo balls, zhug, hilbe, and hawayij. Brisket is one of the few recipes that I actually inherited from my parents; my long-term goal is to use my family's ingredients with a more bulletproof braising method (à la America's Test Kitchen) to make sure it always comes out well (theirs does not). If you want to try one of these before the others, try potato kugel first, it's a latke casserole; I garnish mine with home-grown chives. I blended black garlic into the homemade farfalle for the kasha for a guest and was told it's the best ever. Also, turns out that Cuba's national dish, ropa vieja, was borrowed from Sephardi Jews; my first attempt at cooking it (from Genie Miligrom's recipe) wasn't great, so next time I'll be using the one from the Columbia Restaurant in Florida. Of Joan Nathan's recipes, Yemenite chicken soup was good, zhug was so great that I'm surprised it isn't mainstream, hilbe was strange, and I'm going to put hawayij on my next steak. TO COOK 1. Crypto-Jewish "chuletas", which are a French toast-like concoction that superficially resembles pork chops, supposedly cooked to throw off Spanish Inquisitors. I have the recipe, but I haven't had morning company for breakfast fare during the pandemic. 2-3. Jachnun and kubaneh, the Yemenite Sabbath breads I mentioned above. No recipes or bakeware yet. 4. Italian Jewish style couscous. Edda Machlin's recipe for couscous broth (thurshi?) is so complicated that it has to be fucking delicious. 5. Kibbeh, introduced to me by Mark himself. I need the recipe. 6. Corned beef from scratch, to be sliced and served on the challah, or on a rye loaf baked with flour sent to me by another 8channer. 7. Edda Machlin's Tuscan-style cholent.

Kasha varnishkes. Handmade bowties with smoked sea salt, freshly toasted buckwheat, slivered, browned pearl onions (which vanished into the buckwheat), and schmaltz (chicken fat). it came out great.
>>799 >>1117 How do you make schmaltz? Is it basically me bottling the chicken fat I skim off the top when I make chicken broth? I want to save the fat and use it for something, have no idea what, but not sure if its schmaltz.

>>1060 Overblown risk. Plastic is very similar to wood: yes it's porous, yes stuff gets in between, but it's safe as long as you clean it properly. If someone's the kind of autistic who would only rinse it then yes, they'll get extra botulism or something.
I ended up buying this one: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07W4W2BZ7 It's fine I guess. It doesn't seem like switching between the two pestles makes a difference, but the mortar is about as big as the biggest I've ever seen.

A thread on everything bread. From cinnamon buns to sourdough loaves. Post recipes, share progress, or ask for advice. I've been on the sourdough journey for nearly two years now, with the first year being quite the struggle. I eventually settled on an overnight first rise on the counter (except in the exceptional heat of the summer), shaping, and then letting it rise until it was just right. I recently made some burger buns and pizza dough, but I've made quite a few recipes by this point. For anyone interested in starting the sourdough journey, I recommend Weekend Bakery (e.g. https://www.weekendbakery.com/posts/no-knead-soft-sourdough-rolls/) and Butter for All (e.g. https://www.butterforall.com/traditional-cooking-traditional-living/how-to-bake-the-perfect-sourdough-boule-in-your-dutch-oven/). Your starter will need time to gain strength, so don't expect crazy results upfront, but if you persist with sourdough pancakes, you will end up with great bread.

>>1068 Depends on how you made it. If you made it with a proper sponge it can keep rising for a day or more.
>>1068 It depends on how much food you gave the yeast. As the yeast eats, it will give off gas. When the yeast is cold, it will burn slower, if warm, faster. When you smell alcohol, it has mostly consumed the food. When the food is gone, the yeast won't rise anymore and die off. Make a sourdough starter if you want to see how yeast works/lives.
This is a recipe that BWB used for calzones / pizza dough: >360 ml water >1 tsp yeast >1/2 tsp sugar >600g bread flour >1 tsp salt I don't have a scale and from what I could tell, that's about 4.5 cups of flour, so I ended up halving the recipe across the board (bringing it more in line with my other bread recipes). I'm also halving it; one to proof at room temperature for 2 hours and one to cold ferment for a few days, since apparently that makes a difference. I don't have a stand mixer either, so I kneaded it by hand for 5 minutes. Even with a sifter and working it (like actually squeezing and pressing it hard), it still ended up looking sort of unworked; not like chunky, but I could see the texture wasn't even. All the shows I watch have this beautiful pliant dough that's completely uniform so I'm not sure where I'm fucking up.

Hey there, We're in the process of organizing a new edition of The Infinity Cup or /icup/ for short, a virtual soccer tournament pitching various boards and imageboards against each other, and we're trying to find out if any of the boards that previously joined us wanted to reserve a spot in the final tournament. Since your team was already present in previous iterations, we already have both your roster, your kits and logos, so the only thing we ask of you if you want to join is the following: 1) Making sure your team has the correct number of medals (1 Gold, 1 Silver and 2 Bronze), which you can see from the wiki page http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki//ck/; 2) Making a thread over at https://anon.cafe/ with your team's pledge, you just need to make a new thread telling us that your board wants in on the cup. Optionally) Assign player cards, roles and special strategies to your players, which can be referenced from the following wiki articles: http://infinitycup.shoutwiki.com/wiki/Player_Cards
