DesertZephyr: I dunno the proportions of acid to oil for a vinegarette... how would YOU suggest assembly?


Cooking school says 3 part oil to 1 part acid, but geometry doesn't support such a high level of oil, math says you shouldn't be able to emulsify more than 2 parts oil with 1 part acid without your vinaigrette breaking.
 
I personally like to do a 1 to 1 ratio as its lower in calories, and still tastes great.  Just be sure to add your oil to your acid SLOWLY while whisking.  The smaller you can make the droplets of oil in your dressing, the more your tastebuds will taste them, even though you've got less oil than other recipes typically call for.  More info:  http://www.cookwithtom.com/?p=446

Don't know if all know this trick, I submitted this video and the Fark Nazis didn't pick it for the video page.

So I figure why not post in in a food thread!!?


easy way to separate the yolk from egg whites. Never, ever, seen it done this way.

soosh: tlchwi02: I've been thinking of doing a goose this year. all the old stories reference a christmas goose like its a thing and i've never had one. I've heard its similar to cooking a duck. anyone have any tips/tricks?

it's a lot like cooking a duck.  there will be tons of rendered fat.   you might want to look into some crispy duck techniques where the duck is steamed and then roasted.  I've done a goose before just straight roasted, stuffed with homemade sauerkraut.  It was great.


And if you cook a goose you must make goose fat potatoes.

BigBooper: No. The entire Turkey was $4.68. We got the thing for 39 cents a pound. And then got a bunch of stuff free with it. We had to argue with a store manager to use all the coupons together, but the store coupons said they could be used together, and the manufacturers coupon didn't have any restrictions on it. So he didn't argue long. He probably didn't want other shoppers hearing what we were doing.


Well, I'm an asshole.  Great find, and best of luck to you in the coming year.  Hope everything gets better for you.

kwame: BigBooper: My family is poor this year, so... Turkey we bought before thanksgiving for cheap $4.68 for a 12 pound bird.

If you can spend $40+ on a turkey for Christmas dinner, you're not poor.

Ideally, something I could set up in the oven to cook while we're opening presents. Ideas?
 
Throw some cut up onions, sweet potatoes, and apples in the bottom of a relatively large cooking vessel (like a 6-8 qt dutch oven).  Add some rosemary, salt, and just enough orange juice to cover the veggies 3/4ths of the way up.  Add a couple of tbs of butter.  If you're so inclined, throw 1/4 cup of maple syrup or brown sugar in with it.
 
Salt the outside f a 4 lb chicken on top, and place it on top of the veggies, out of the liquid.  Put in a 375-400 degree oven until the thighs register 165 on a meat thermometer - 1 1/4 - 1/1/2 hour.

I'm trying something new this year instead of some of the things I've done for past Christmas dinners (turkey, chicken, pot roast). This year I'm cooking a pork roast in the Crock Pot. Accompanied by homemade mashed potatoes, relish tray and homemade chocolate cake for dessert.

I usually make a prime rib, but this year I'll be in Tahoe, so I will order oysters rockefeller and prime rib with a lobster tail and see how much of it I can pack away.

Christmas is for roast anything, really.  Goose, beef rib roast, pork, chicken, duck, etc.  I think I'm going with this for this year:

kwame: I hate when people try to tell me that Christmas is for ham and Thanksgiving is for turkey.

 
Christmas is for lamb and duck.  Or, at least, it is in my house.
 
Also, foie gras.
