I often make butter, just put heavy cream in a jar and shake.
I love homemade butter, it is so much better than what you buy, and so easy to make. I had an antique mini butter churn that had belonged to my grandmother and it was accidentally thrown out along with an entire box full of antiques during a move.I often make butter, just put heavy cream in a jar and shake.
danago, I absolutely love your posts!!So so yum!
On a side note, although somewhat unrelated to food but perhaps of interest to people on this forum, I also visited the Archimedes exhibition in Rome today, at i Musei Capitolini. It wasn't a big exhibition, but featured a few pieces about his life in Siracusa, followed by an exhibition demonstrating some of his famous inventions and major scientific contributions, such as the lever, parabolic mirrors to burn ships with sunlight, the Archimedes Screw and some of his works in mathematics. It was a refreshing change from the usual visits to art museums, however there were too many school kids running around playing with the gadgets :grumpy:
For the purpose of making this post related to the thread: I had some great stracciatella ice cream after my visit to the museum.
Lunch today: "Pizza e mortadella" from Il Fornaio in Rome. It was seriously simple yet seriously good, which is why there was a line going out the door and the inside was absolute chaos with no sense of order at all. I went in expecting to buy a slice of pizza, but saw everybody ordering this, so I asked one of the locals what it was called. I must say, great last minute change of decision
Known as the “Italian Bologna”
I diced and fried two large potatoes. When it was nearly done, I added about a 1/8 cup of General Tso sauce and 1/8 cup of barbeque sauce. Pretty simple really.I recently found a great frozen General Tso's chicken, what is your recipe for the potatoes?
Doesn't look that tasty in the picture - looks too dry.
mortadella looks more like this, it has a lot of fat.
I love blood sausage. When i was little my mother used to buy blood sausage with tongue, so you had theis black sausage with this pink thing in the middle. The tongue was the best part.My mother used to buy some "bologna" looking stuff from the local butcher shop. It took me almost 3 minutes of googling to figure out what it was called: Leberkäse!
It has neither liver(leber), nor cheese(käse) as ingredients, but does include corned beef, pork, onions, and, wait for it... Bacon!
It's been at least 20 years since I've eaten it.
ps. Evo, that looks more like Blutwurst. One of only two foods on the planet I will never again go near.
pps. Do not google it. You will never unsee it. You have been warned.
ppps. I just threw up. See!
pppps. OMG. It looks like this is a popular dish around the world.
ppppps. per wiki: "Blood sausages are very difficult to find in American supermarkets"
pppppps. GOOD! And lets keep it that way!

Leberkäse sounds very yummy.
