I used to never cook much, but lately I've been trying to do more stuff with fresh ingredients and stuff. I like it, but there's one disadvantage. With certain ingredients, most noticeably onions and garlic, but also some other things, the smell really gets into your hands and I still have stinky hands days later even though I wash them with water and soap.
Is there any way to stop this, other than wearing gloves which I refuse?
May be a stupid question, but it's starting to annoy me.
Can we get a pie thread going? I'm addicted to it since I made my pecan and pumpkin thanksgiving standards. Now I want to make everyone's favorite pie and the most requested has been banana cream, with key lime in second and apple and cherry tied for third most requested.
Post favorite pies, recipes, links, videos, tips. Anything pie related is welcome here!
This is the pie I made last week, it was delicious! Homemade Saskatoon berry filling, and I've nailed pastry from scratch ^_^
Does upside down count? Made Tarte Tatin a few days ago, mine came out not quite as good looking as the pic but that's pretty much the only thing that can go wrong, it was damn tasty. Apples, butter, sugar and puff pastry is all you need. Just google for recipes, there's a bunch.
Had one last week, relatively successful.
Let's have another one. What have you guys pickled recently?
Just pickled some red and white pearl onions 30 minutes ago. Not looking to store them long term, maybe a week or so. They're just little snacks for when I want something salty and vinegary, or when I'm drinking, which there will be this weekend.

I'm thinking about doing a char siu glaze on my ham this year, but I'm having trouble coming up with good sides to serve with it. What do you guys think? I'm thinking something Chinese or Hawaiian maybe?
Anyway, what are you co/ck/s cooking this year for Christmas?
I've got English family coming for Christmas and they've made it clear they will be wanting Christmas pudding, which also must be vegan for their daughter.
Why the fuck do all christmas pudding recipes have so many ingredients? Does any one have a babby's first christmas pudding recipe with like 6 ingredients? Also I'm american so I've neve one this before. Is it even worth it?
Tell them to fuck off and bake an apple pie.
>vegan for their daughter.
Make a real christmas pudding, then make a smaller vegan one just for her.
I don't even know how you would do that, just fruit and alcohol in a bowl and bake it I guess
Do you like bread? I like bread.
>crust to too hard that it scrapes and cuts behind your teeth
>crust is too soft that it gets soggy after a few minutes making an unpalatable dough-mush
>white bread, ever
is it possible to make tendies from scratch, and if so, is it cheaper than frozen tendies

>tfw my ex gf took all my cups

Does anyone loves mexican bread?

what eat now /ck/?
monte cristo sanwich for start
So I got a small bottle olive oil straight from some backwater italian village and it's nasty as fuck. Bitter, heavy grass smell and flavor and now I'm puckering up as well. Is this normal?
Yeah, it's so unrefined that you're tasting the bitteryfuckness of the olives. That's why olives are brined. I recommend you watch the Avec Eric episode "oil & wine". It's very informative.
What you have is a first press pure olive oil - the kind usually described by the number of coughs it induces when tasted on its own. It's not a cooking oil, it is a flavoring oil. On its own it's very strong.
Thoughts on offal /ck/ ?
I apologize for the size of the picture, have this one instead
>cold bacon is a thing
How well do these things actually work? My oven is currently broken and my parents are coming over on Christmas. Is it worth the 40-50 bucks?
I did not find the one I got for my cabin the least bit satisfying. No ability to brown anything, and whatever I cooked in it came out tasting like whatever the thing is coated with - a weird chemical taste way worse than what you get with cheap nonstick cookware.
Can't recommend these things.
i was given a couple for thanksgiving this year. We cooked a turkey in one and the other turkey was done in the oven. The one in the oven was better, but they're not a bad substitute if you don't have an oven. I never had any issues like >>7184184
Also, my ex's mom used to use one all the time. It worked reasonably well for her.
