I'd really liked to have been around about 40 minutes after that baby came out of the oven, there's nothing on earth better than fresh, warm apple pie. Of course ever since I quit ciggys six months back every time I eat a piece of pie I gain three pounds. Boy howdy Ross, the thought of that pie has me salivating like one of Pavlov's dogs! RAY

Boy howdy, you ain't kidding! I put on 20 pounds the first month I quit and managed to lose five pounds back since then. My doc said he was so happy I quit smoking that he wouldn't start crabbing at me about the added 15 pounds for a year, all my numbers checked out OK. Right after I quit my gums started bleeding, my sinuses were wrecked, I didn't sleep worth a damm, and I went from 185 to 207 lbs. Now everything is back to normal, as my doc said it would be, except I can't seem to get under 198lbs for more than a day or two. Eleven years ago on my 50th B-day I weighed in at 243lbs, a year later I was 185lbs, so I DO know what I have to do. I just hate doing it, never been much for self-sacrifice. Oh hell, I sure would like a piece of that pie anyway! RAY

As for weight control I eat anything that I want but just not very much of it. I quit smoking about 35 years ago. My weight went up , topped out at about 170 I am at about 156 now.

Your pie looks like it's smiling and dribbling.
Very tasty looking.

Sometimes I get very creative with sculpting a face on the pies.
ssorllih - Tue Nov 06, 2012 01:41

I use rendered poultry fat for the short paste.

I just have to share this one.




Dried Apple Pies



I loathe, abhor, detest, despise,
Abominate dried-apple pies.
I like good bread, I like good meat,
Or anything that's fit to eat;
But of all poor grub beneath the skies,
The poorest is dried apple pies.
Give me the toothache, or sore eyes,
But don't give me dried apple pies.
The farmer takes his gnarliest fruit,
'Tis wormy, bitter, and hard, to boot;
He leaves the hulls to make us cough,
And don't take half the peeling off.
Then on a dirty cord 'tis strung,
And in a garret window hung,
And there it serves as roost for flies,
Until it's made up into pies.
Tread on my corns, or tell me lies,
But don't pass me dried-apple pies.

Ray, you know that the pie is perfectly fine food but not after a meal. It is the meal.
ssorllih - Tue Nov 06, 2012 16:28

How many calories in a slice of pie?
Start with the list of ingredients.
one pound of flour-2000 calories
one cup of poultry fat- 1600 calories
2 quarts of apples-800 calories
one cup of sugar-750 calories
one tablespoon of butter -110 calories
total calories- 5260
cut for 8 slices=657 calories per slice

Breakfast of champions! Big slice of pie and a glass of cold milk, pure heaven. I haven't made a pie now since mid-July when the blackberries were ripe. They grow wild on the side of the country roads around here and all you have to do is park and start picking. My wife doesn't eat pie, tho between my father-in-law and I a pie has never lasted more than two days. I picked up four pineapples last week for 99≠ each and they are just about perfect right now, but I've never heard of a pineapple pie. They go on the dehydrator tomorrow, I WILL come up with a recipe for pineapple sausage sooner or later. I will! RAY

Hi Ray,
A mate of mine made Pineapple sausage all the time. It's easy as chips, he used fresh or canned pineapple, finely chopped, pork, scallions (spring onions) inluding the green tops and cheddar cheese ( not the matured style) and a standard plain pork sausage meal mix.
They certainly look good with the small pieces of green onion tops and cheese bits and taste great.
Good Luck.
Jan.

There's always a pineapple upsidedown CAKE! AWESOME with a big glass of milk also. Mmmmm Mmm :mrgreen:
ssorllih - Thu Nov 08, 2012 04:56

Any kind of upside down cake.! :grin:
ssorllih - Tue Dec 11, 2012 02:22

We need some bread to go with all of the sausage .

Post subject: bread
Is that some of your sour dough? Man it looks great!
ssorllih - Tue Dec 11, 2012 14:29

just common yeast bread.
Chuckwagon - Wed Dec 12, 2012 09:22

Yup, that's mighty 'perty stuff there, pilgrim! :roll:
Really Ross, the crumb and texture look marvelous. Shucks ol' pal, you are leading us to believe that you've done this before once or twice! :wink:

There are a few Chinese groceries in Tampa. There's one I like that has great produce, including the biggest carrots I've ever seen. Usually big veggies don't taste as good, but these are fantastic. The one pictured went into a beef stew. They also have huge bundles of inexpensive fresh dill, which I use when I make gravlax (aka lox). I think they're supplied from someone's garden.

The banana and garlic next to it give you an idea of the size. (Edit to add: I've cropped the picture, reduced it, and modified brightness and contrast. I haven't in any way altered relative sizes. The carrot really was that big: 2.5 inches across at the widest point.)

When vegetables make men feel inadequate:

Over the holidays, since I had some time off work, I've been working pretty hard at home. I brewed a batch of beer called GOMBA (Grumpy Old Man's Bitter Ale - named after me :mrgreen: pictured below). I brewed a batch of agave cactus mead. The beer will be ready in three months, the mead in a year.

Then there was 10 pounds of sausage: 5 pounds of chicken/apple in hog casings and 5 pounds of garlic beef sausages in lamb casing (which kept breaking on me... very frustrating).

On a whim, I bought one of those fake fireplaces which produce an image of flames. It was some work to install it in our fireplace, crawling into the soot to unscrew a bunch of screws, then ripping out metal with my bare hands (I'm too old for that!). Real fireplaces are of no real use here in Florida.

My wife has been baking like mad, because grandchildren (and their parents :smile: ) are coming to visit.

Here's GOMBA the beer. A day after this was taken, the foam was blowing off vigorously into the gallon reservoir on the side.

Life is good when you have the time and the means to cook.
