    bottles-jars Buying bottles locally?

    Looking to stock up on some bottles for a large batch of sauce I'll be making soon, but it seems shipping less than 100 is pretty expensive.  Does anyone know of a place in OC / LA to get bottles locally so I don't have to pay $20 plus in shipping?

    fermenting Fermenting peppers with Mead or Lambic???

    Never made a "fermented" sauce before, but was looking at some info here and seems like fermented peppers have more of a "pepper" taste since you don't use vinegar.  Well I got a few lbs and was hoping to try and ferment a couple of jars, but instead of using the traditional salt / sugar water...

    Aging Beef at home?

    I don't eat a lot of red meat (for health reasons) maybe once or twice a month, but when I do I want it to be the best possible indulgence since I know it's going to be a while before I get more. I attended an aged beer and food pairing this Sunday ( ) and had...

    Salt Therapy???

    I groupon a lot and just got a groupon for a 45 min salt therapy session. At first I thought wow cool I love the salt scrubs at the spas, but after reading further you just sit in a room with salt walls, floors, and ceiling. Apparently they keep the room a certain temp and humidify it so you...

    Oklahoma State University tries to patent a steak

    Seems like OSU is actually trying to patent a new cut called "The Vegas Steak". Seems likes it's cut from a common muscle, but you have to use certain knife cuts in order to use it as a steak and that's what they are trying to patent. Would be a big score for them if they can pull it off...

    smoking Smoked Lobster

    My bro owned a bar on a pier for many years and he had one of those "lobster tanks" that you put a buck in and try and grab a lobster. If you win you get the lobster cooked with sides of your choice. It was amazing to see how many drunk guys would try and win the lobster!! I would see guys...

    for-sale LIVE Ashitaba Plants for sale

    How many lb's per plant do you pick in a season?

    Trying to get an idea on how many pounds of fruit does everyone pick in a single season. I normally don't track my harvest by weight, but this year I wanted to see what my 2 overwintered TS (trinidad scorpion) in a sigle earth box would do. The plants started out slow with a bunch of grunts...
