Right after I posted I started looking again and found it where I thought I put it.
It was just a little farther back in the drawer.

We posted on top of each other and you were right.
The reason for the gum is to stop separation and so far it is doing great.
At around 1/8th teaspoon per cup this stuff with last a good long time.

All of the store bought sauces have xanthan gum in them and I wanted mine to look professional too.

I dont know what the deal is but the habanero sauce got 100 times hotter over night.
I didn't realize it until it was too late.
My lips and everything around and in my mouth is on fire big time, I want my mommy.

"My lips and everything around and in my mouth is on fire big time"

What do you find best for that? (Besides mommies?) My husband swears by lemonade. I favor yogurt, when available, or maybe sour or heavy cream.

BTW, when I can't find something, if I ask for help, it's sure to turn up. Just to humiliate me!

I forgot where you asked this question.
I dont use anything it will soon go away.
No hot pepper challenge should allow the use of any fluids at all.

Does anyone but me get the sheer stupidity of this statement?

"""Lardo is made from the thick layer of fat on the back of a pig (that is to say, fatback!), which is cured with a mixture of salt, herbs, and spices. It's Italian in origin and some of the best is said to come from northern Tuscany where lardo was a primary source of calories during lean times."""

Please reply.

I've never heard of lardo before, but I've cured a bunch of fatback with salt.

Ok I'll bite.
Lardo is the opposite of lean.

Even in lean times, the pig was always fed well. It often represented a family's entire meat supply for the coming year and they did whatever they had to to fatten it up as much as possible before slaughter time.

I witnessed the loss of my grandfather's pig when I spent a summer in Italy. It was sick and in pain. The entire village gathered to try and save it using everything they had, and every idea anyone could offer.

We all kept a vigil until the early morning hours hours when it finally died. The next morning a group of men came back to help my grandfather bury it. The loss of that one pig was deeply mourned by the entire town.

I dont know how to explain in well but I will try.
The term lean times describes or comes from the fact you dont have any fat to eat and nothing but lean meat.
So eating fat during lean times is a contradiction.

Sometime in the mid to late 20th century they started breeding livestock to be more lean.
Beforehand the animals were rolling in fat.
Not only was this fat coveted including me but it is where you get glycerin from to make nitro glycerin as in bombs fro WWII.
Does anybody remember the days when a good porterhouse had that glorious kidney fat on it at the bottom end.
The same fat on a pig that makes leaf lard.

I dont know last night it was 2 cups of white rice with hot pepper oil hot peppers and dark soy sauce on it.
Not the trashy salty stuff they sell but the real dark thick stuff product of China, cant read the writing.

For those that aren't following the Shop Smith restoration project in the Workbench: BYI section here is what I came up with by accident.
After completing the project I was fooling around with a piece of mesquite fire wood and came up with a new garlic smasher.
I had no idea what it was it just looked like a garlic smasher.
It works great for smashing and removing the peel from garlic and crushing things.
Before and after.
