  1. It seems like it must have been noted on here already, but I just found this article about Mongo’s favorite pickle book
  2. You could try baked baking soda : https://www.thekitchn.com/expert-bagel-maker-confirms-you-dont-need-lye-to-make-a-good-bagel-maker-tour-203288 i used to dip pretzels in lye solution without any PPEs, but boiling in a lye bath sounds scarier!
  3. I used to make some really tasty savory oats in my fancy rice cooker. I’d set it up the night before, putting the pinhead oats and water in first and then laying a couple of green cabbage wedges, a couple of slices of pumpkin, some black pepper, and a bit of Tianjin preserved vegetable on top. I’d program the rice cooker to cook it on the congee setting, to be ready at 0530 or whenever I wanted my breakfast.

  5. I used to make it, like twenty years ago. I had a little mill, kind of like a mouli grater—it worked really well, but was a lot of trouble. Now that almond flour’s readily available everywhere I just buy it.
  6. My daddy bought it for me every month, but made me let him read it first. I got myself a bunch of the paperbacks from the used bookstore
  7. I do them in a regular pressure cooker for 8 or 9 minutes, depending on their size--I'd try 12 minutes in an Instant Pot.
  8. The blanching thing only works well with freestone and not cling peaches, I think (or maybe the other way around), plus they can't be too hard.
  9. I think they'd end up nicer if you peeled them, but you can just halve and core them and can them in syrup. Twenty minutes boiling water bath for pints, thirty minutes for quarts, no pressure canner necessary. For variety you could do some in a spiced red wine syrup.
  10. I always add things like rum or Cointreau--in similar quantities to your Galliano--at the end, right before I bottle my jam.
  11. I haven't used it, but my Batali pizza pan, which seems similar, works really well. And this Lodge one is cheap.
