Anyone tried these things? I had some morally questionable parents growing up and had to eat dry dog food a bunch of times and you can absolutely survive on it for a few days. You won't like it probably, but it'll keep you alive.

Taste incentives are different for cats and dogs, so it only makes sense the food is designed differently. Dogs, for instance, can barely taste salt content. Exclusive meat eaters don't need to hunt down things like salt (or sugar for that matter). If anything they're in danger of eating too much salt, and require more water to help flush excess. Dogs have a much higher sense of taste for water compared to humans for this purpose, and it grows more keen as their salt levels become higher.

Cats aren't too different in general (being meat eaters), but they lack a sense of taste for sweet completely (while dogs still have it to a degree). However, they are taste sensitive to fat content, meaning they still might hunt down fatty human sweets if given a chance. Cats are also overly sensitive to BITTER and SOUR as evolutionary deterrents against poisonous food.

As contrast, I've just read Dolphins have no sense of taste at all cause they swallow shit whole.

>what can i use this for?
Nothing really. McCormick spices are garbage.

Throw it out and get some real cinnamon. Ideally Saigon, if you can't get that then buy Ceylon. It should not be pre-ground. Grind it yourself before use.
some people add cinnamon to shepherd's pie, but I haven't tried it yet.
as some already posted, rice pudding, it's god tier.

Rye bread turned out great, a tiny bit gummy in texture, but that's not bad for our first attempt. Had it with a peanut curry.
>Your flour comment is correct in the regard that the dough is much more consistent (which is obviously helpful for the home baker but moreso for the industry). But the modern day wheat was bred with a high yield and plant stability in mind.
No, modern bread flour is much better because it's actually higher quality. It's not just the consistency. Modern artisan bread favorites like the baguette and ciabatta were all a product of higher quality flour in the 20th century; none of them would be possible much earlier.

>extremely retard
Are you saying the microwave will retard the dough? Or are you just a retard who can't spell retarded?
>And you gonna use citric acid?! Get the fuck out
Citric acid is definitely a natural product. Isolated in 1784 from lemon juice according to wikipedia.
>The whole function of modern aditives is correct mistakes that appears during high speed productions. Aditives dont make anything better, just less bad.
This really isn't true; bread improves objectively improve bread. You can make one excellant loaf with just extremely high quality flour, but adding the right emulsifier will improve the crumb texture and rise even more. w

It's the top textbook in the field. It's used at the SF Baking Institute, or whatever it's called. Basically, it's the baker's equivalent of the CIA's "The Professional Chef."
AB&P has an entire chapter (or like 10 pages) on dough conditioners from what I remember.
Good trick.
Microwave only heats water. It will kill some yeast, but overall, it's just a trick to kickstart a cold dough. I'm talking like 15 seconds, maybe 30s max. AB&P has a couple of pages on "DDT," desired dough temperature. Essentially, you take the entire set of ingredients and change the temperature of the water to achieve a DDT of 74-77F/23-26C or something like that. It's a simple calculation and supposedly every bakery keeps a log of the room temp, flour temp, and mixing time. The mixer adds X degrees to the dough, and so you adjust the water temp to get to DDT.
Flour temp should = room temp. Oven light is a good idea. If you have a bad DT, then a microwave can help. I have also turned the oven on briefly. The problem is that a slow prove leads to better flavor, so rushing things is bad. Mkay?

TL;DR your dough temp should hold in a closed oven (or proving drawer/cabinet) if you have DDT correct.
>AB&P has an entire chapter
Nice, I'll have to check it out.

I've put boiled water in the microwave and used it as a sealed container to proof dough in a humid environment (when it's too cold or dry to proof dough well). Never thought about starting refrigerated dough by microwaving it for a couple seconds, sounds like a nice trick.

So I drank 1 litre of vodka Sunday night.
The hangover was bad at work.
So I drank750ml vodka Monday night kinda as a hair of the dog which worked well until this morning at about 5am.
Felt almost as bad all day today.

Do you guys eat the fat on your steak? My parents will chew on the gristle for the whole meal. I'm disgusted by it, and always cut it off, and they say I'm being wasteful. Who is at fault here?
46 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
The ideal bite of steak is like 85% meat and 15% fat, so if there's a big hunk of fat I'll bite off pieces of it along with the meat to achieve that ratio
>the fat is the best part
>he actually likes chewing gummy meat
the marbled fat is what matters, you need some meat in there to get proper umami
If your parents are buying and cooking the steak for you then you should eat it how they do and not waste the fat even if you don't like it.
Wanna be picky? Buy and cook your own food, then you can waste whatever you want.
I suck off gay vegans. I'm straight though. I'm only into straight guys.
I cut it all off before cooking. Less flare ups on the grill, and I can render the fat out in a pan to use in other recipes.

What do you call a small, soft, round item of bread, and whereabouts are you from?
46 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
a roll is the generalised term, and also refers to the most basic of small breads
a bun is a roll that's been cooked with butter (and sometimes is sweet)
a bap is generally fairly flat, but still soft, and occasionally topped with a light dusting of flour
a cob is a crusty bun
a barm cake is a roll that's been leavened with barm instead of normal yeast
a (english) muffin is flat and usually has milk and shortening involved in the process
a stottie is a very dense and dough-like bread
(both the muffin and the stottie have been referred to as "oven bottom buns/muffins/bread")

then there's "batch" which is just any bunch of bread products that have been baked together and may need to be cut at certain points (think like slider buns when they're all joined together)

They can't use lard in common supermarket goods in the west, too many muslims and jews would make a fuss. The jews especially have a lot of power inside the companies.

That leaves tallow, but tallow and palm oil prices mostly track each other ... and with palm oil they can still sell to vegans/vegetarians.

I guess it is for those who eat a lot of meat - adds up. I don't eat meat all that often, so when I do cost isn't a consideration. I just buy whatever I want.
'Murikuns are psychologically manipulated into only buying a limited variety of foodstuffs produced by corporate global business's. Any deviation from the norm is prevented by higher prices on unapproved items, such as lamb.
As a reference, look at the menus of any major chain restaurant. Those will be the only approved selections. Any deviations will be hit with much higher prices, forcing the plebs back into the corporate approved menu. Only the elite 1% venture outside the norm, because of the higher prices.
>psychologically manipulated into only buying a limited variety of foodstuffs
>Any deviation from the norm is prevented by higher prices on unapproved items
Well, that sounds more physical than psychological as it implies the real producers of products (aka the 99%) aren't being paid wages high enough to withstand the artificially high prices of meats like lamb not approved by the megacorporate fascist oligarchy.
