Thanks, t0mato, I'll post pics when it's all packaged up ;) 

 

It's nice to catch up on things.  Like the Boss said, I never go into the glogs or flogs either.  Doesn't mean I'm not interested in what's happening with people though.

Good first experiment.  Couple of thoughts- would adding a heating pad to the affected area help and I would suggest wiping the oil off with paper towels and alcohol or even a strong grease-cutting dish soap (used straight, rub it around, then wipe off with paper towels) before the shower.  I've heard many folks say an automotive hand degreaser like Goop works also.  


In Topic: The does and donts of sauce making

Yesterday, 10:15 AM

I've never heard of sauce makers leaving the seeds in as proof they used the whole pepper, but I guess... 

I use whole superhots and a good quality BlendTec blender for a supersmooth sauce.  If a person doesn't have a blender capable of getting a really smooth consistency, the sauce can be run through a food mill to remove the seeds while keeping the rest of the cooked flesh and placenta.  I personally don't care for a bunch of seeds in a sauce, don't care for the texture.  They can impart some bitterness if there is a whole bunch.  The placenta can also.
