Scoring potatoes with a knife instead of poking them with a fork

in Potato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, a few months ago, or so, I got the idea that it would be easier, prior to baking, just to score my potatoes with a knife than to poke them with a fork. Knifes are easier to wash, and it takes less effort to score than to poke. So, I did it, and the potatoes cooked a lot more nicely, too. ...read more

Baked potatoes and chicken sandwiches

in Potato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I haven't experimented terribly with creating chicken sandwiches. So, I decided it's about time to start. I live with a relative who likes plain, unseasoned, unadorned baked chicken. No seasonings. No sauces. Just the natural flavor. I like to flavor and/or sauce things. Anyway, I decided ...read more

Dehydrating hot peppers in 2020—ouch!

in Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 3 comments
So, before I last went to sleep, I commenced dehydrating all our hot peppers, except the ones on the plants that I somehow missed during harvest. There always seem to be a few stragglers. I'm no stranger to cutting up hot peppers (including superhots) with unprotected hands (although I don't ...read more

Okay, in 2021, I'm focusing on sweet peppers, including several orange sweet peppers. No hot peppers, this year. They're all Capsicum annuum sweet peppers.

Capsaicin and collagen!

in Pepper
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
So, apparently, capsaicin inhibits collagen fiber formation, but it improves the fibers at the same time. This could be very interesting information for those with Ehlers-Danlos syndrome (some people who have some symptoms but lack others might benefit from capsaicin, and some people should prob...read more

So, I dehydrated these tomatoes last night (and today): And we got this result: I had them on 167 for about 5 hours, and 145 the rest of the time. Different temperatures would assuredly get different flavors. Most of them seem to taste like tomato soup with a zing and a little swee...read more

How wonderberries go with other foods

in Wonderberry
by Radishrain • | | 1 comment
Wonderberries go excellently with ham. They add a nice zesty flavor. If I eat a few right before I bite into some ham, it also enhances the flavor of that ham. Wonderberries go well with tomatoes. Combined with tomatoes, they're great cooked in frittatas, and on pizza; they're less remarkable...read more
