Sounds like a fun recipe! Might be worth having on a weekend breakfast menu. :grin: Is the omission of salt a dietary thing or just not necessary? And is the bind not compromise if there is no salt in mix? I also questioned the lack of salt as a binder. However upon having had some, I think that th...

The wife always makes her dressings & dips the day before to allow the various ingredients to release their particular flavours into the carrier.

My good wife got a similar recipe from her grandmother. Instead of celery seed, she uses diced celery. She will have to go with the seed next time to ascertain if there is an improvement in taste. Everyone who has partaken of it as she makes it, has raved about it. Our son, an accomplished home chef...

Re: new to Vancouver Island

Sorry if this is not the appropriate forum for this posting. I am relocating from Alberta to Vancouver Island and am wondering if there are any forum members on the island that I might occasionally meet with to improve my charcuterie skills etc. I am relocating to the Cowichan Valley. Thanks Ken A ...

Long absence from forum

I have had a long absence from the forum, as my wife & I have been spending all of our time with our 38 yr. old daughter in her battle with metasticised breast cancer. Between the cancer hospital & her place, we have been busy. Being that she is single, her mother & I are providing her care. She is ...

That is one fine looking piece of cutlery. You sure can't beat a hand made knife for quality and look. Like you say, they are works of art, and the maker is definitely an artisan!! My hunting partners laughed at me for paying what I did for my hunting knives, but their eyes soon opened. They were co...

I will be going out the the son & grandson on the weekend to several alfalfa fields that I have permission on. Looking for a big dry doe for hams, smoked backstraps, and sausage. We live on the edge of the boreal forest, so we have some good sized animals coming out of the bush to graze on the alfal...

I obtain my "Fermento" from Halford Hide in Edmonton, Ab. It works well for my purposes. They have a plethora of spices and information for anyone who may be new to the game. (I am not a schill for them!!!) I have used their products for some 25 years, and have had nothing but the best, in all of qu...

I also have a Cabelas mixer. However, I can attach it to my #22 grinder motor. Works like a dam, sit with a beer and watch!! Sure saves the arthritic hands. We have probably made at least 1000 lbs. of sausage with it since I have owned it. My son and his buddies always seem to show up here when ther...

Thanks Red!!! No, I did not go fishing. I had an orthopod appointment to find out what can be done with my osteo-arthritic ankles. I would sooner have been out on the ice.
