Software engineer by trade but I came to Seasoned Advice independently of Stack Overflow.

I'm interested in bread, sous-vide, food preservation, dairy, and trying new food.

comment What does “buttermilk” mean in an American pancake recipe?
@Elendil, @Sinan- We have had the conversation a few times around here: cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/13257/… cooking.stackexchange.com/questions/1127/… In short- you can thicken milk with acid but you miss out on a lot of flavor. @Justkt swears by powdered buttermilk which you can order online.

I should add that, if it is thick and the sauermilch is more milky, the dickmilch might be more similar.

@rumtscho- I assure you, sir, that I had no such plan. Simple curiosity. The other three were recognizable cognates.

Please tell me what the translation for "dickmilch" is. Languages are funny things.

I finally went to an Asian grocery store and found shallots for about the same prices that you mentioned above. Looking forward to trying them out.

Perhaps but I haven't seen wheat starch sold separately from wheat flour and other types of starch wouldn't have the same texture when cooked.

Are you talking about for cooking or for storage? For me they aren't often the same containers.

Thanks for the ideas- I'll try the melons in the summer when they are in season.

comment How to reduce the sourness of homemade frozen yogurt?
This was perfect. I used my sous-vide controller to make my yogurt instead of the old yogurt maker and it turned out thicker and much less sour. I made blueberry frozen yogurt and it is fantastic.
