>>1009 Lemon is a fairly neutral acid. Lime has a strong lime taste, and vinegar has a strong vinegar taste, which influences the taste of the cheese. Both can be positives if you like that taste, of course.
Chef John has just posted a video on ricotta. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4q7EB7YWi1I I tried the recipe without the cream but using whole milk and it was really good. I didn't let the cheese drain very long so it retained a very creamy texture. Now I've gotta find some use for the whey other than drinking it.
>>649 Cheese with sweets is pretty disgusting. Imagine eating a fruit with a side of cheese.

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.

>>1119 Couscous is the easiest carbs I've ever come across: Just put 1 part couscous and 1 part boiling water into a pan, stir once, lid on, wait for 10 minutes, fluff with fork. Done. Polenta (and grits, which is just more nutritional polenta) is a bit harder because you actually need to keep it boiling, but you only need to stir it seldomly. Plus, more variety because you can stick some butter and cheese in the hot polenta and bake it too.

I used to put tuna or (anything canned, really) at the bottom of a bowl, cover with couscous and boiling water, and let sit until a nice layer of dense couscous formed to hide the surprise tuna below.

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.

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.

How many times will a yeast dough rise? I mixed it all up, let it sit there for 40 minutes, punched it down gently, then put it in the fridge. It exploded out of the plastic I put it in twice. I know a covered bowl is probably best, but it seems like it'll just keep rising.
>>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.

>>1064 It kinda takes me back to simpler times. She sounds like a mom whose only worries are making food for guests and making sure she still fits in her prom dress. Is this what nostalgia feels like?
>>1065 What's so infamous about it? Sure, the fact that it's all premade shit is pathetic, as is the entire concept of Kwanzaa, and it doesn't deserve a TV appearance or any payment, but it doesn't seem all that deserving of the reaction. I'm sure you can find countless equally bad recipes on any website that lets the public upload them. Maybe I'm just so used to seeing people post garbage recipes online that it no longer seems odd to see them proudly broadcast.

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

With the holidays approaching, now is the time to start preparing festive food. Post recipes of your holiday favourites for this time of year. Let us know your preferred cookie or what meat you like to serve on New Year's eve. On my side, I'm all about making sweets. I always make an array of cookies, with a preference for gingerbread. Ultra-boozy fruit cake gets passed along to the family too. This year I'm going make kletzenbrot, though I'm going to try random fruit rather than dried pears which I've never seen where I live. I thought about trying my hand at panettone (or pandoro), but I don't want to buy the specific mold for it and I have a bakery nearby which makes some in-house.

Grease and flour 9- in. cake pans. Combine flour, soda, powder, salt, and cinnamon- set aside. Cream brown sugar and shortening 2 to 3 min. Then beat in eggs and vanilla. On low speed beat in flour mixture alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour. Divide dough into 7 or 8 portions. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pan and cool completely on a wire rack. Stack with hot apple filling between layers. Sift confectioners sugar over top before serving.

>>924 >It starts dry and you need to allow it to set at least 24 hours to meld in a cool place. Longer is even better. From the little research I've done, I read that was the typical recommendation for most apple stack cake recipes. Also, I will recommend using apple cider or apple juice for the apple filling instead of water - it just gives you that much more appleness to the dish.

Pretty much what I've heard when it comes to matcha. I can see it making sense, but I guess I want to prove it to myself. But if you tell me you've noticed this, I can believe it. Thank you! >Washing is only necessary for tea that comes compressed or tightly rolled, cakes or such. I've been to a tea house which washes the leaves from specific types of tea (I believe their Chinese selection). They are loose, however. Doing some research, it seems that old tea can have excess amounts of fluorine, so maybe that is why?
