Instant Pot warning

Recommended Posts

my mother still doesn't have a food processor. but that's because she lives in india and has access to cheap household help. she has someone who comes in and preps all the vegetables and someone else who does most of the cooking under her light supervision.

The point is that that may change - with time and age. Does that work? I'm old, and sometimes I don't want to hang over the stove all fucking day, though I often do, much to the chagrin of my back.  Same with making pesto/aioli in a mortar and pestle - I actually bought at $35 mini-Cuisinart, and it's awesome. Don't get me wrong - I love my mortar and pestle, and actually used it yesterday to make the dressing for a faux puntarelle salad I made.

On the stove top! And because it's the holiday season, I want to share this great trick I use...




None of those old fangled pot holders for me, nor as I learned to use in cooking school, a (dry) side towel. 3 corks, baby.


I think for some toast tonight, however, I may build a fire and toast our bread over the open flames.
