I know but have you ever had really good snow runoff water? Some friends of my family in Idaho had a large cattle ranch, and they had a pipe sticking out of a rock wall with water running from it. Water cam from deep inside the mountain.  Best water I have every had.

I grew up in upstate New York.   The road to my grandfathers house went through the mountains and some of them were cleared by dynamiting the rock to reduce the high points.  You could still see the lines that the drills made in the rock where they'd put the charges.  There was one point on the way there where there was a random pipe sticking out of the rock close to road level where water was always running out of the end into a rock basin.  We'd pull over from time to time and stop to get a drink.  The water was always cold but nothing special.  I still prefer RO water especially considering what's been removed from it.

Hi all

I char peppers under the broiler, if i don't have a fire.

  If I want the pepper crisp/fresh and skinned, i use an acetylene torch to burn the skin. Happens fast enough to not cook the pepper.

was gonna suggest you save it for "company" ...

 

 another crappy day in the desert SW... 80`. I should go out to the lake.. Not natural or very big. A pond by standards anywhere else. Some dandy LM bass in it. I have caught a couple 7lb+ while fishing for bluegill.

Being retired is nice. ... and I will be able to enjoy it when the wife retires from her 60hr/wk job ... next year.

Good morning :emotion-44: Eggs peeled just perfect yesterday AM. Guess I will go for some oatmeal.

Salt good for a lot of things, I guess. Like me some iodine for the ole thyroid...

Region and tradition come into the egg thing then, a takeaway for me...:emotion-21:

Go Duke...

Lol, yes it seems grandmothers knew their cooking. Grandpa was a regular oatmeal eater. Here lately, have been adding abit of maple or honey.

She cooked some backstrap venison when I was a kid staying with her when grandpa out hunting. The way she cooked it was unlike what I have had since.

Most of the old ways of cooking wild game are lost.  My mother prepared fried squirrel that was incredibly good.  Also, salt pork.  The salt pork was simple enough, but I don't think the salt pork you can get now is as good as what we had then as I tried it a few years back and it didn't taste at all like mom's.  Of course, it may be just that mom didn't cook it... (sniff).

Billybob, got me to thinking also...my grandmother used to get government surplus food.  One of the items was raw steel cut oatmeal.  Here again I keep it and cook it regularly, but it simply neither smells nor tastes like that grandma used to cook.

True, I remember when I was a kid there were very few big grocery stores, most people went to a local corner neighborhood store with a real butcher. If you wanted a chicken or a duck you walked outside with the butcher, there were wooden cages with live ducks and chickens and you would pick one out. :o:lol: He would bring it in a clean it for you, today there would probably be people outside protesting. This alone would make me buy an extra chicken. :emotion-21:

It's also great for seasoning cast iron pans. After cleaning put a light film of bacon grease and reheat to bake it on, works great and more nonstick than any other pan. Takes an extra couple of minutes but you save that when it's time to clean next time.

Have done that also, in between I somewhat do it by heating to dry after washing with no soap, then wiping with bacon fat. I have done all of this so much nothing sticks to the metal anymore. The more I use and season the better they get and are easier to clean. I cook everything I can with them they are so easy.

My brother in law gave me one of those metal mesh things to scrub cast iron, it rarely get's used they clean so easy.
