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 Can I can vegetables using sous-vide?
@yossarian- I agree with you. It seems for high acid jam you could boil for a little while to set the pectin (possibly separate from the fruit), seal in a vacuum pouch and pasteurize. Is it possible to test this approach for safety without a lab or electron microscope?

comment How long does uncooked meat last when kept in the freezer?
It's not a matter of safety but of quality. As long as the meat never thaws it will stay safe forever. If it is exposed to air then it will become dehydrated or develop off flavors over time.

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.

comment Why shallots over onions?
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.

comment Baking bread with spelt flour, without using a bread pan
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.
