How do I use carob?

Does anything significantly adjust it's digestive effects or taste - like cooking, browning, being mixed with oil, fermentation by yeast or by anything else?

Is it more tollerant of sourness than cocoa? Does it combine with other things that chocolate would just completely clash with, like goat milk?

Is it good for anything other than beer?

But they are, they're mutt-chocolate. Or specifically mongrel chocolate, not to be mixed up with dog-chocolate, the much more nonsensical use.

That doesn't mean they don't consume cocoa beans. Chocolate bar/cubing is essentially a way of processing cocoa for easy shipment, it's why a square of unsweetened baking chocolate is a decent form of ultra-portable food.

That's two factors combined. The posibility that carob being munched on by yeast improves something about it. And especially the possibility that cooking it, particularly in a mixture together with flour, butter, oil or possibly dairy adjusts it.

It doesn't even seem good for yogurty chocolate milk, as much as chocolate seems to take badly to being sour, carob still can manage to end up tasting worse.

Good things just aren't going to get concocted with it ... not with how much it causes constipation.

What is the optimal temperature at which to cook salmon?

I used to bake filets at 375-400 Fahrenheit (for some fucking reason), but I just tried it at 275 for 15 minutes and it's so much more tender and buttery. Can you cook it lower? What if I just cooked it at like 100 for an hour lol

Also, how do you like to season it? I like various herbs and citrus, and of course olive oil, garlic, salt, and black pepper

I just fucking love salmon.

It's a preference and depending on quality, you don't want to undercook it. I like just the center cool, but everything else cooked through. Salmon has such a different flavor raw vs cooked. I love it both ways, but I keep the raw stuff for the sushi pros.

>Also, how do you like to season it?
As for flavorings, roast or grill with a glaze of balsamic vinegar and maple syrup. You can do 1:1 or a little more maple. Throw it in the microwave for like 15-30 sec to thin it out and make it eaiser to stir and combine. Adjust it to your taste if you like it sweeter or more acidic. I season the flesh with just salt and pepper. I season the skin with salt, pepper and mustard powder and sear it before baking or grilling.

You can also do it wrapped, Italian style. Chop tomatoes and onions and toss with olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and thyme. Season a salmon filet, put it on a piece of foil. Top the salmon with the tomato mixture and seal it in the foil tightly. Bake @ 400F for about 25 min.

There's also garlic-dijon where you make a marinade out of spicy french mustard, chopped garlic, dill, salt, olive oil and lemon juice. Top with capers after you cook it.

Last is sauce vierge. I generally like this for white fish, but it'll work with salmon, too. Do a rough chop of some tomatoes and 2 garlic cloves. gather some herbs you like - basil, parsley, tarragon, thyme, parsley, cilantro, whatever you like, 1 cup of olive oil, lemon juice, salt, pepper and ground coriander. You can either poach everything in the oil for 30 min or just let it all sit together on the counter for a few hours. Top cooked salmon with this sauce.

Post your favorite hot sauces. Pic is 357, the hottest sauce I like to eat. It has a delicious flavor, but it's fleeting because the heat quickly overtakes the flavor and because you can't use more than a drop or two without making food too hot.

What's your go-to condiment? I basically only have olive oil (extra virgin) which I usually add last to avoid altering its organoleptic properties. I also prefer its raw taste rather than cooked.
I use that for literally everything, from salads to stir frying shit for pasta sauces and so on. Except when baking pastries or cooking eggs, of course, for which I use standard fresh butter from cow's milk. Though I don't remember the last time I baked something. I don't deep fry stuff, not anymore at least, but back when I did I was using sunflower seeds oil.

Yeah my cuisine is pretty boring I guess, yet simple and time saving... and maybe healthy. But I don't give much fucks about that as I'm an alcoholic drug addict piece of shit

I live in the multicultural part of town, so I have a bunch of Turkish stores, a Thai store and an African store practically next door, which is really great to up your condiment game.
a new one I've began using recently is pinakurat, it's a kind of hot fermented cocunut vinegar. Also use dark (cooking) rice wine, Dou ban jiang and fermented black beans often. And fish sauce! Especially fish sauce, use it in almost anything instead of salt.

From the Turkish store I use a lot of tahin, harissa and pomegranate molasse.

You don't press cold brew coffee. You get a bucket and fill it with coffee and water and let it sit for a day or two then drain through a filter into storage. The result is smooth coffee concentrate that you can store in the fridge for weeks.

The change in taste is clear and noticeable. The coffee has zero bite or acidity but the rest of the flavor. Often shops will serve it straight or over ice but most people at home go 50/50 coldbrew/water and nuke it for a good cup of coffee. I would bring a jug of it to work and just use hot water from the cooler and instantly have a smoothe cup of coffee at the perfect temperature.

The process is a PITA if you aren't using a kit like I finally am. If you try DIY you're going to run into problems with getting a good filter to keep the grounds out of the brew. There are different processes but the one you want is something like what the Toddy kits do: a big'ol bucket with a hole in the bottom that has a removable filter and a plug. None of that "steeping" bullshit; big bucket of coffee mud. Look up rules for how to add coffee and water together because you want even mud but you don't want to stir. Unplug and drain into a carafe after 1 or two days.

Fuck a slow cooker, a roasting pan with tinfoil after 4-6 hours over applewood or hickory. Oven at 260 until center is 210, rest for an hour covered

Full pork shoulder
half dr pepper quarter mtn dew quarter coke more than enough to cover
5 large carrots, 2 white onions and whole celery stalk rough chop skins thrown in
Black peppercorns whole, garlic, smoked paprika, TINY amount cumin NO salt
Salt will kill the pop's carbonation

pull apart well with 2 forks, remove large chunks of anything not meat but leave some fat and skin in

Mix with a generous amount of sweet bbq sauce mixed with a bit of extra salt

Quick one about tuna steaks; if I have frozen ones and fully defrost them, is it wise to try and pan-fry them 'medium-rare' or is this asking for bacterial devastation?

Also tuna steak thread because why not

if you defrost it safely you don't need to cook tuna at all. make some tartare. or just give the steak a quick sear, like blue rare. raw tuna is so nice, to me at least it feels like ruining the cut to cook it through.

what fredy said works too tho

this depends almost entirely on what state they were in before they were frozen, since it simply halts whichever bacteria was currently in action - to be resumed upon reaching above freezing

besides that though the texture would be quite spoilt. id recommend the taco idea...or making a tuna pasta bake with some penne, raw red onions roughly chopped, jullienne green bell peppers and spring onions, and plenty of cheese

and something tomatoey.

youd really be amazed. Give the tuna a quick sear beforehand, boil the pasta until al dente, cook down a tomato sauce from tinned tomatoes or whatever you have, combine it all with lots of grated cheddar over the top and bake at something like 180C for 20-30 min

torrents of flaky sea salt and ground pepper is a must

yeah imo there is no point in trying to achieve the red rare goodness with frozen tuna. you have to have fresh fish for that
