That's kind of what I was afraid of. I will post back results when I try out the blanching and slicing method above.

That's an interesting idea. I will try blanching->slicing->toasting.

comment Does the use of kosher salt vs. table salt lead to a higher overall sodium intake?
@Mr Shiny: this was very interesting: "Normally, only about 20% of the salt on a chip actually dissolves on the tongue before the chip is chewed and swallowed, and the remaining 80% is swallowed without contributing to the taste"

comment Proper cow bones to prepare holodets
The tendons are not necessary. If it was a leg bone it should have had enough collagen. I would make sure that you cooked it long enough and didn't use too much water for the amount of bone.

She did leave the marrow it. Because of the length of the bone it would have been very difficult to get the marrow out.

Do bone names really vary that much? The exact bone isn't so important- just that it contains enough collagen. Leg bones, hooves, and joints have a lot.

comment Roasting a turkey in a roaster oven
@Joe - This: amazon.com/Hamilton-Beach-32229-22-Quart-Stainless/dp/… A counter-top electric heater big enough to fit most things. It doesn't brown well but it holds temperature well. Usually they come with inserts to keep food warm when serving as well.

comment How to tell if it is real sourdough?
If you can't tell the difference does it really matter? The point is the enhanced flavor. If they are able to achieve a flavor that pleases you does it matter if they used a "traditional" technique?
