comment Terrine shrunk during cooking
The terrine was half-immersed in water and I took it out of the oven at 72°C so it shouldn't have overcooked. I don't understand the emulsification concept for a meat/fat mixture. As far as I know emulsions are made up of liquids with a continuous phase (oil in mayonnaise for example), a dispersed phase (egg yolk) and usually a stabiliser (mustard). I'm very interested in how this applies to the terrine mixture.

No I'm cool with fat, just thought that it should remain mixed with the meat instead of on the sides. I'll try just over-filling the terrine and putting something on top to press the meat down next time.

Yeah I think that's what went wrong. I'll try that next time.

I doubt it's that. I haven't wash that particular container in a dishwasher for a very long time.

I'll try using lower power and see how that works. If that fails I'll just heat it on the stove. It will be another week until I can get my hands on some more raw milk but I will keep you updated, thanks :)

comment What does a healthy cast iron skillet look like?
@TFD The article you dismiss tries to back its arguments with some science. You, on the other hand, say it's incorrect and that a quick heat on the oven is enough. It would be nice if you were to elaborate if you want us to give your comment some weight.
