Stuff I mused over after enjoying the entirety of Weeds for the second time…
(Fair warning: major spoiler alerts if you haven’t seen the end of the show.)
Many of us own a Dutch oven, or think we do – what the heck is a French oven?
Let’s find out.
It was requested of me to do a Jamón Serrano versus prosciutto post, but in doing my research, I discovered there’s actually another subcategory of Jamón besides Serrano we’ll have to delve into.
In short, the difference between Jamón and prosciutto is really the difference between Spanish cured ham and Italian cured ham.
The first time I ever heard of a beefalo was the weekend I got engaged, in July 2012. We were at a bed and breakfast/farm in Vermont, and they happened to sell the unfamiliar meat.
We didn’t eat any that weekend, but I bought some frozen, took it home in a cooler, and later had it in a stew. To me, it tasted just like regular beef.
Buffalo meat began surging in popularity around 2010, 2011, and has seemed to wind down a bit; beefalo meat, on the other hand, I never hear about at all. Supposedly it was popular during the 1970s.
It’s strange there’s not more hype about it, because as you’ll see, it rocks.
