Once it’s frozen, the texture is set so long as it doesn’t melt. Like ice cream, which is pretty ruined texturally if it melts partway and freezes again.

Klore: I’ve a flock of Sapphire Gem hens, so plenty of fresh extra-large brown eggs, but no immersion blender or circulator to make these egg bites. Past attempt at using a hand blender (mayo-fail!) makes me think I’m SOL with this recipe, and would a water bath work? Any ideas/suggestions? Thanks!

For reheating purposes, do you de-jar them and store them in the fridge, or can you leave them in the jar for storage, and reheat in the jar, with a loosened cap?

Palomas are the standard quick to make drink here in Mexico for having tequila that is not good enough to have it straight. If pure Squirt is too sweet, also one third of mineral water brings a nice touch and is not that sweet. The salt or tajin ring is a must indeed! Salud!

can confirm - these are better! Between the discount SV i have, and the jars i got on sale, plus the low low low cost of ingredients at a place like ALDI, this process has already paid for itself several times over.

The first time I tried this I used 8oz jars because I was too cheap to go buy even more mason jars. It worked, however the jars tipped on their sides and floated the entire cook time. I went out and bought the 4oz jars.

My best salad is from a recipe I got in a meal kit ages ago. Roasted or boiled potatoes & some hearty green veg like brussels or asparagus, an assertive green like escarole or arugula, flaked smoked trout. Apple cider or champagne vinaigrette with some whole grain mustard.

I’ve come up with my own sort of template. It works in almost every combination. It consists of: Greens base of choice, add sliced/chopped red onion, chopped or sliced dried or fresh fruit of choice (dried cranberries, dried apricots, apples, mandarin orange, pomegranate seeds, etc.), shredded or crumbled cheese

If you reject the colour pink on principle, you reject joy. You reject life itself.

If my grizzled, greasestained, middle aged father can drink a pretty pink beverage, so can any other dude,  damn it.
