#1594034 Cast Iron Camp Oven Cooking

Posted by SavinaRed on 18 November 2018 - 06:38 PM

Cant believe how expensive cast iron has become, unreal :(

You can find good CA at garage sales, estate sales,2nd hand stores and craigslist. I found lots of great quality dutch ovens / skillets from these old vintage companies. Birmingham Stove & Range, Favorite Stove & Range, Griswold , Lodge, Martin Stove & Range, Sidney Hollow Ware, Vollrath, Wagner and Wapak Hollow Ware. I've paid anywhere from $10 up to $100 for these dutch ovens. Nothing made today for a $100 can even compare to any of the above you can find for under $100. Most of my dozen DO's were between 15- 50 dollars.

I have the freshroast SR500 but I find it roasts to fast for me so I bought the Nesco coffee roaster which takes 15 minutes to city roast instead of 5-6 minutes on the SR500. The Nesco also has an agitator besides the heat to mix the beans so they do not scorch at the beginning of the roast unlike the sr500. The coffee is tasting much better as it takes more time to develop. If I'm not 100 % satisfied with this roaster over the next 2 months I'm biting the bullet and buying the Behmor 1600 Plus.

I got into Japanese Maples last fall and now have 12 of them  :)


So succulent collecting has taken a back seat this year. I've actually been thinning them out and giving allot away to my daughters so they can start a succulent garden or containers.

Hey Savina,


   I know this post is a year old now, but where did you order your Desert Rose from? Was it a quality plant and do you have any current pics of it?

I forgot where I ordered it from I will research and see if 

i can find out. I know it was somewhere back on the east coast.

I will try and post a pick. 

#1566088 Pasta sauce recipe?

Posted by SavinaRed on 07 July 2018 - 09:52 AM

screw the unsalted butter go with the salt as salt always enhances the flavor of food. 


I make a killer pesto almost every weekend during basil harvest :) started last month and will go into October/ Nov. I have 10 plants. 


And guess what I always add 1/2 to 1 cube of salted butter to the sauce. Huge difference in taste and texture. And now that I use my Blendtec the sauce never separates like it use to with the olive oil in my ninja. The texture is much more consistent and smooth with the Blendtec and the sauce stays together really well.

I didn't take any measurments, just eye-balled everything like Bobby Flay would do..

Same here I just went for it lol and used what I had at home without going to the store for anything. I used 5 different types of tomatoes in the sauce. I also used these herbs from my garden- basil, oregano, lemon thyme and rosemary. Garlic was from a jar and a walla walla onion. I also threw in a fresno pepper that was turning red and sliced it up really thin for a little kick.
