    Wow!  Never knew that!  Learn something everyday, even at my age!  Thanks, Joe!

     

    We both did....I  hadn't known about motorcyclist's kidney belts.

     

    I'd bet that motorcyclists got the idea from equestrians.

    1 teaspoon  Morton Coarse Kosher Salt 

    2 buns (I prefer brioche hamburger buns)

     

    Notes:

    About the salt. Remember, kosher salt is half the concentration of table salt so if you use table salt, use half as much. 

     

     

     

    That sounds pretty good.  I may have to try it next time I buy ground beef.

     

    BUT, 

    BEWARE!  All kosher salts are not the same.  Morton measures more like table salt than Diamond Crystal.  That part I highlighted holds true for Diamond Krystal, not Morton.

    • 1 cup of Morton’s Kosher Salt = 241 grams = 1 3/4 cup minus 1 teaspoon of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt
    • 1 cup of Diamond Crystal Kosher Salt = 137 grams = 1/2 cup plus 2 teaspoons of Morton’s Kosher Salt


    Table salt:
     

      Quote
    1 cup or 16 tablespoons 288 grams 10.16 oz


    So the Morton is very slightly less salty per volume than table salt.  Diamond Crystal is dramatically less salty per volume than table salt.  It also dissolves much faster than Mortons or table salt.

    Cowboy version of a motorcyclist's kidney belt?  Possible I suppose, but I've never encountered such a thing in any literature.

     

    From what I've read those fancy belts Hussars and others such as  Royal Horse Artillery wear were/are for support while riding.

  5. Grumble!

    Just saw a commercial on the television, a Memorial Day blurb.  "Today we honor our veterans!"

    How hard is it for these advertising people to keep it straight?
    Memorial Day is for those who Gave The Last Full Measure,
    Armed Forces Day is for those currently in uniform
    Veterans Day (Armistice Day) is for honoring those who served but are still with us.

     

    Grumble!

    And then hold hearings to find out why prices are so high.   But never once consider that it's the taxes, fees, and regulations on the industry that make gasoline here consistently a buck or more a gallon higher than anywhere else in our republic. 

  7. Little Lumps of Appley Goodness
     

    Easy Apple Fritters

    Recipe:

     

    1 medium size apple

    1 egg

    1 cup flour (125 gr)*

    1/3 cup sugar (65 gr)

    1/4 tsp cinnamon

    1/4 tsp baking powder

    Lemon zest

    A bit more sugar and cinnamon for the coating

     

    STEPS:

    - Grate and apple and squeeze a bit of the juice.

    - Combine the grated apple with an egg, flour, baking powder, sugar, lemon zest, a little lemon juice, and cinnamon.

    - Drop teaspoons of the mixture into hot oil, frying until golden brown.

    - Coat them in sugar with a bit of cinnamon and enjoy!

     

    Notes:

    * you may need to adjust the flour amount based on the juiciness of the apple you use.

     

    Use a #100 disher.  I used a #60 and didn’t flatten them enough.  Or my oil was a little too hot and some were raw in the middle.

     

    I used the leftover sugar/cinnamon in my coffee. Later I might fry up some flour tortillas and sprinkle them with some of it.

    One day she was running late and I saw her scooping out of the factory container and putting it in a fancy Tupperware container. 

     

    The stuff I remember came in blocks, just like their other block cheeses.   It wasn't as soft as the cheese balls or stuff in the tubs, but wasn't as firm as their cheddars.  Had little flecks of the pimento throughout.  

    Sometimes I'll add olives.  Or use only olives and leave out the pimento.  Love a pimento and olive loaf sandwidge (sic).  Made my own olive loaf a few times.  Mmmm.....olive and caper loaf!  

    I've not used this: http://lpoli.50webs.com/index_files/Olive Loaf.pdf  but similar.  Also added olives to potted chicken, potted pork, and potted ham.

    So you’re the one keeping that stuff alive as a viable option for alienating dinner guests and traumatizing small children…like me…a few years back…50+ years back…:lol:

     

    A dirty job,  but someone has to do it!

     

    Lucerne used to make a  commercial version that was pretty good.   I learned to make it in the '70s.  For some reason when I make it for potlucks people gobble it like it will be outlawed at midnight.

  10. Except about 30% were built with counter-clockwise.   Some,  including in the Tower of London complex have both  in the same  building.   

     

    The wall to the right of the guy coming down will inhibit his swing. 

     

    The guy coming up can go Roman,  have his sword along side of his shield, and thrust up at the guy coming down.   Or chop overhand at his feet.

    My knowledge of fava beans is solely that there is an allergy -not me.

     

    I've found a few receipts for using fresh fava beans to make falafel.   Also several for Middle Eastern salads.
