It's a pretty basic friendly lady Sinosphere peasant soup so yeah. Remember that nothing in the soup 'goes bad' if you overcook it so don't worry too much on timing as long as you don't leave it in there for like an hour. If you want tips on the meatballs I can give you some too.

Ha, I don't remember exactly, it was some years ago now. I took it apart and looked at the mechanism, I think it had a gear for adjusting with a peg that stopped it from going too small, so I must have broke or bypassed the peg… that or there was some shimming. I also took off the adjustment knob once I got it to a grind size I liked.

I don't usually tamp with the aeropress, I find I kick up the grounds with pouring in water anyway… maybe this is my problem with it.

A few days in and I've already learned so much.
Lesson 1: It really, really wants fresh beans. At first I was using the now 3 week old beans I had left while waiting for the new ones, and they just didn't quite cut it. When the new beans arrived it was a world of difference.

Lesson 2: Never give up! It took a few days to really get an actual espresso shot, rather than watery strong coffee. Learning all the new variables was overwhelming but I got there in the end. Everything being so manual is such a cool process when you figure it out, it sure takes a while longer but it's so fun!

But oh boy when it all comes together it's amazing. Here's this mornings cappuccino (latte art is still a WIP), tastes great, although I'm finding myself having just double espressos most of the time cause they're so good.

Only tamp with aeropress if you’re trying to make an espresso like Coffee. I like a cup of inverted method coffee using a lighter roast a lot, and never really tried to make “espresso” with it, but recently I’ve found you tamp it, you can make the aeropress make something kinda like espresso. Without tamping it’s impossible.

The sun has finally come out! It was a nice rain the past few days.

I made some pepper sauce today sushigirls. I used bhot jolokia and trinidad scorpion. I've washed my hands about 6 times. Yet, 4 hours later, hen I touch my genitals, my eyes, or my nose, I still get a nice, soothing, burn that lasts over 5-10 minutes. ^^

Well their music wasn't bad but I wouldn't call myself a fan.

Jokes aside I love spicy stuff so yes, without a doubt.

I really like spice but I'm not familiar with western spices. I mostly eat Chinese food. I tried a hot sauce made with the ingredients of pepper spray and it wasn't as hot as I thought it'd be. I feel like I reached the top of the mountain and it's quite lonely.

 No.631

I love it, when food makes me sweat and cry while eating and still fuels my desire to devour more. >>606 The chinese cuisine is well designed for that purpose. When I went to china, I had not a single regular dish, that wasn't a feast to nourish from. It also goes surprisingly well with the humidity and heat down there.

A nougat core coatet in marzipan and chocolate is called Baumstamm in Germany. These candy bars are usually sold during Christmas time. That means you can obtain them from September until March or all year around at some places.

Drops of chocolate mixed with crisp bread crumps are also really addictive.

But it's made of cocoa butter, although the content is low compared to darker chocolate.

Good job sushi! I really think that for people out on there own, picking up a couple of spices can improve quality of life imensely. Especially of your on a budget. Eating the exact same thing every day is fine if it's your favorite, but if it's just the cheapest thing You could put together it gets boring really quick. Here are some of my favorites:

-Salt (though ramen really doesn't need any more sodium, it's good for other stuff)
-black pepper
-crushed red pepper or chili flakes/powder
-onion powder
-garlic powder
-basil
-cinnamon and nutmeg (not so sure about on ramen, though I've never tried)

Spice is a really great way to get a lot of flavor out of a bland dish. And eating boring food is really bad for your sanity, especially frequently.

Guess that explains why the spice trade was such a huge thing which built empires historically. I never really understood why something so useless was so valuable but I suppose it makes sense.

Just got some MSG, what should I put on it? Also, is it really that dangerous?

 No.452

File: 1527213759652.jpg (58.37 KB, 658x617, DZtyZwHVMAAGqXx.jpg)

It's just glorified salt. Use a pinch of it in savory dishes like stir fry to make them more savory. It's not good for those with high blood pressure (hypertension), but neither is normal salt. People that think MSG is toxic forget the basis of toxicology itself is that _anything_ at the right dose to the right person is poison. Young kids can get an allergic reaction from it (hives; swelling lips), but that can be fixed with crushed diphenhydramine in a carbonated beverage. The CO2 causes quicker absorption of the antihistamine in the stomach alleviating symptoms faster.

[protip] Carbonation can get you drunker faster harder stronger with this same technique. Use such advice with caution, 007.[/protip]

>what should I put it on?
Hearty food benefits the most from it. I add MSG to fried rice, noodle soup and vegetable based hot meals, basically anything of asian cuisine.

>is it that bad?

Every pure chemical is able to damage the body, take sodium chloride or sodium bicarbonate for comparison. However I once asked a chemist about that and he told me it is slightly more toxic than purified water.

MSG is in some natural sources too, like meat or seaweed, hence their savoriness.

I still suck at chopsticks, but it was a bit easier this time. I think my main issue is I was having a rice dish so everything (bar the larger pieces of chicken) was pretty small and hard to pick up. I'll keep working on it though, and maybe invest in some non-lacquered sticks so they don't slip and slide everywhere.

 No.410

speaking of chopsticks, any clue where to find good ones?

I think raw fish is disgusting. You should try cucumber, avocado, tofu or egg. Also don't get it from the supermarket, get it fresh from a sushi restaurant. The prepackaged stuff from supermarkets has been sitting around for ages and that's now how it's supposed to be eaten.

 No.433

I personally find raw fish absolutely delicious, but the vegetarian varieties of sushi are also great. Loving the crunchyness of cucumber mixed with the rice.

Don't sweat it with the hashi. You'll get there. Meanwhile you can also eat with your hands, which is what I do sometimes. If you bought take away and are sitting at home by yourself, you can do that.

There is some weird stuff floating in this packet of "flavoring oil", which came with a pack of kimchi flavored instant noodles. I didn't open the oil packet, but the objects feel hard under my fingers and with some effort I can snap the longer bits. Anyone has any idea what it could be? I found some YT reviews of these exact noodles, and it seems like the "crispy bits" are in there intentionally, not by accident. I didn't add the oil into the noodles either way.

Hello, /int/eresting people! You dont know me, but i need help. The fact is that I created my sushi rollym's imageboard. I need friends. Forgive me for the unexpected invasion. Now my board very small. The Internet is the only thing that makes me happy in this life. Life in my country is sad. Very sad. Angry people, dirty streets, high price and taxes - it's in the nature of things
. I just need friendship to make life better. I ask the admin not to delete it. If you agree to friendship, we can get links our sites in header/frameset/banners. I'll put the name under the spoiler so as not to disturb others. Sorry for my anglish. Maybe f-friends?
