I would do it. I enjoy a good adventure with good people, even if they are strangers. But yeah a night game wouldn't work. And let me know so I can book a room at the Marriott.

Had a bunch of extra strawberries yesterday so decided to work on the cobbler recipe and see if I could improve it by cutting the sugar a bit.   Ended up with something that tasted like warm biscuits floating in strawberry jam.   Tasty enough but not really what you want in a cobbler.

Posting because we've discussed popcorn machines a few times on here.   Was browsing one of the online auctions I follow and saw this machine on there.   Couldn't remember if it was one of the recommended models or not.   Looked online and the reviews look pretty solid for it - normally seems to be a $550.00 or so machine.   In this particular auction and knowing how things sell there I'll be somewhat surprised if it tops $100 and shocked if it tops $200.    Would be an hour drive or so from Hall & Van Dyke.  The upside is that I could let you know where there are some solid Amish bakers/gardeners in the area to pick up some other goodies.

Gold Medal #2085

Popcorn Machine


Commercial Popcorn machine, tested works, 16" X 18" X 30"(location c3)

OK...I occasionally buy stuff there. I've known the owners since they were kids and my niece lives about 10 miles from there so she picks things up for me.

That popcorn machine is a Gold medal popper which really are tops. That particular model is sold at Sam's Club and currently goes for $469 new (just over $500 with tax and shipping) it is more of their value line. It is a 6oz machine, which is a good size for a home. It quite dirty but should clean up nicely. If it something breaks, replacement parts are pretty easy to get.

I am don't follow auctions like LooseGoose, but I would be surprised if it went for less than $100 and not surprised to see it top $200 (not including buyers premium or sales tax).

Auctions are quirkier than the people here - ;-) I've seen stuff at that one go really stupidly cheap because it's not a very big auction - 900 items every 2-3 weeks. Comparatively speaking the one in Bay City I linked a few weeks back with the signs in it sells 3500-4000 items every week.

Good to see a solid review though, it would make a good one for WBH then.

Have had this popper for 12 years and it is still going strong. We rent them out constantly and it needs very little maintenance. A broken door is about the only thing we get because a customer doesn't load it properly.

For Pantry and anyone else in the area...Sapporo Sushi at Big Beaver and John R is freaking excellent. Please check them out and keep them in business. They may source from Noble, I'm not sure, but their stuff is awesome. I've probably been a dozen times already and they have never disappointed.

One of the few things I miss from the city that you just can't get here.

Sushi is disgusting

_________________
SHOCKULAR:
Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

I don't often revisit subjects in this thread but I have to mention the blueberry cobbler. When it was fresh on Saturday it was warm, juicy and tasty. I had some leftover that I decided to have tonight. Quite the transformation. After sitting for 48+ hours the cake part had soaked up all the juice and now have a jelly like consistency. And as a bonus it's really, really good. I think I may make any others a couple days ahead to let this happen. Some crappy pics but you can see the jelly like bottom.....







Weird how much of a difference a flash can make....

Was having lunch today and thought of our discussion the other day on legacy recipes.   This is a pretty simple side that my Grandma had on the table all summer long at the farm.  Just peel and slice a couple medium cukes, add some onions then cover them with about an 80/20 Vinegar & water mix.  A snappy, palate cleansing treat.

Are we cousins? My iron river grandma had that and baked two loaves of bread every other or third day. Man we are a shit load of bread.

My mom made that but didn't add the onions, which seems like a great idea.

Mom baked bread pretty often.  Was great right out of the oven.  She use to buy Vidalia onions.  Butter on the bread and a thick slice of Vidalia in the middle.  Awesome sandwiches.

Mom baked bread pretty often. Was great right out of the oven. She use to buy Vidalia onions. Butter on the bread and a thick slick of Vidalia in the middle. Awesome sandwiches.

Probably the best smell ever created.

Yeah.

My memories are a bit conflicted. Mom sometimes made saffron bread. It was very good back then.

In years since have come to dislike saffron in anything. It's too over-powering.
