Tasty Things

Sorry to not post a lot, but it has been an interesting week. As noted on Monday, lots going on and trying to get ready for the medical consult next week. Also trying to start recovering from having to replace everything in the freezer.

I think I mentioned that I am doing an experiment with homemade pastrami. Originally, it was a means of preserving meat in an era before refrigeration became common. After brining the meat for about five days, made the final cure/rub yesterday and coated it. It’s sitting in the refrigerator until tomorrow when I plan to smoke it at 250 for about six hours, though I may have to do part in the oven (depending on circumstances/weather). If it turns out decent, will share the full recipe and such.

Got a bunch of biscuits made this morning, though getting the right amount took making three batches of the recipe I have. Have marked it to double at least, and maybe triple, next time.

Also, a batch of sourdough buttermilk pancakes. Gotten them and the biscuits individually frozen, and a few other things done today as well. More soon.

Getting hit by lightning is not fun! If you would like to help me in my recovery efforts, which include moving once we have medical issues cleared up, feel free to hit the fundraiser at A New Life on GiveSendGo, use the options in the Tip Jar in the upper right, or drop me a line to discuss other methods. It is thanks to your gifts and prayers that I am still going. Thank you.
