Onions are fantastic to ferment.
As well as carrots, anyone of those would be good on your list.'
Maybe not lettuce or parsnips I have no idea about them.

It looks like I will be cooking for 6 again soon, or they will be cooking for 5. I cannot do the family of 6 again.

I did find a really good deal on NY strip steaks - it may have been mismarked. Four of them an inch thick for $14 dollars. That is four special meals for me and Jan, but ...

If they move back here, I will quit posting here because I will lose my sanity,

There are some personal things I wanted to write about cheap eating. I know these things are opinioned, but I still want to ask. I want shrimp to taste like shrimp and not a part of some recipe. Why use something that tastes so good and distract from it's flavor? I have never figured that out. Why make a steak taste like charcoal or wood smoke?

If I served you lobster, it's going to be lobster.

I have never seen pancakes topped with peppers! What an interesting, unique take worth! Sausage...yumm! unfortunately I don't have any of our homemade left and it hasn't yet failed that if I eat sausage from the store...heartburn and indigestion city! Another crisp day, here. I'm not very hungry. Had lunch out today and overloaded on sushi...it's my latest ethnic craving....starting to make good progress with making pot stickers at home....maybe sushi will be the next one on the list to learn to make at home....

The pepper sauce is fermenting so all is not lost. Yay! I think this weekend I will make another quart jar of kimchi.

Upcountrygirl, I don't ferment turnips (unless I add some or daikon radish cut into matchsticks in the cabbage kimchi) but I do have a nice little recipe for marinated turnip cubes that we like. If you're interested I'll post it.

Hope you get some of that rain that's supposed to come through this weekend from the Gulf. Our fall veggies will love it!

GoDawgs, I would be interested in the recipe, please.

Any rain we can get would be most welcome. Starting last wkend we've had more rain than the last 42 days combined. It also rained a couple of days ago. You can't tell it. It's been so dry! The ground is sooo thirsty! Any rain is welcome! I freely admit I've been praying for no one to get angry at a S.O. again and start more wildfires like we had in 2016..the upstate choked on smoke from the chimney rock fires multiple days in the fall. There was a wildfire at the Table Rock area and then that idgit started the wildfire that decimated Gatlinburg!

Sorry, I was venting last night and drinking - and only told 1/100th of the story. This isn't the place for that - although the cooking part does fit in. I apologize.

Worth, the pancakes with peppers makes so much sense. Hot and sweet with breading.

My mother used to make a chocolate syrup/gravy type thing back in the late 1960s and early 1970s. I asked her for the recipe back in the 1980s, but she said she forgot it. I haven't found a recipe online or in our cookbooks dating back to the 1950s. I know it had cocoa in it, but I was so young then - I don't remember as much as I need to.

But could you imagine pancakes or waffles made with Texas heat grown tabasco peppers and chocolate syrup/gravy?

Easy recipe! Posting it here and in the Recipe section:

Marinated Turnips

This recipe is for one pint jar of marinated turnips but you can make as many jars as you want.

4 medium turnips, peeled and cut into ¾” cubes (for 1 pint jar)

Pack cubed turnips into a pint jar. To each pint jar, mix up and add the following:

3 TBS white vinegar
3 TBS salad oil (canola or other)
1 clove garlic, crushed
¾ tsp seasoning salt
2 tsp salt

Cover tightly and refrigerate, shaking occasionally. These will keep a long time.

Very simple claypot rice with hot sausage. To-the-first-joint rule for the amount of water works wonderfully, the rice was very fluffy.

I may not be the first to mix hot and sweet like this but consider myself a pioneer in it.
It was back in the early 70's when I started doing it.
The hot pepper and jelly sandwich.
Every day after school before I went out to split wood for that nights fire.
Feed cows.
And get on the tractor to run the brush hog till dark.

One time a woman yelled at me in disgust because I put hot peppers or pepper products on just about everything I ate.
I mean she was mad.

The pancakes were made with White Wings flour tortilla mix with added baking powder and a pinch of sugar.o
My ratio is somewhere around a table spoon of the baking powder per 2 cups of the mix.
Cant say dead on for sure because I use my hand for measuring.
Then I mix it up and add enough water to make the mix stiff but flowable. like any pancake batter.

You get the same results you would from Bisquick for a fraction of the cost.

If you can ferment carrots, I'll bet you can do parsnips too.

Salt, my granny used to make chocolate gravy... I don't remember her measuring. I can tell you what she used...unsweetened cocoa powder, all purpose flour, sugar stirred together...then add milk.. pour into a cast iron skillet and cook until desired thickness... pour into a bowl add butter and vanilla extract...stir until butter is melted and mixed in...serve..yep with some cats head biscuits! lol!

Godawgs thanks for the recipe. We're getting a l'il rain! Hooray!
