In Topic: Butter, oil or bacon juice?

Yesterday, 12:07 PM

I bought a quart sized canister for rendered bacon fat, and we only buy a raspberry-chipotle soaked bacon from the butcher, so we only have that brand of bacon fat for cooking....


...On that note, I can't keep the quart canister half full.... :twisted:


We have oil and butter, but tell me, you guys make roux with that?

Thank you ,
I do have Aji Mango that I can compare later.
Slightly thicker skin than on your pics , but very close.
The unripe pods are very light green colour.

Yeh, I noticed that light green. I doubt it's mango related, but the size and shape is mighty close!

Those lil' guys look a lot like the Aji Mangos I grew this last season. Very sweet, nice smooth hot to them.


The Aji Mangos are a shade oranger than that, though.

I think you still need to give it light or it will die.  I don't believe the OW'd pepper plants act like cacti and can go dormant and live in darkness.  They still need some kind of light.


Yah Ben, no worries there. The "dark" end of the office gets indirect light from both a northern and a southern source. She's doing quite well!

Never saw a baby praying mantis before, neat!



I think Chris Joyner was considering starting a mantis ranch last Spring...
