I've thought about dabbling in cheese making. I've done the quick cheese recipes before (results kind of like ricotta). Basically a pot of warm milk mixed with a touch of lemon juice creates the curds. Then drain it. Season it with salt to taste. I haven't been able to find any rennet near me though, so I've been kind of hesitant to take the next step and make proper cheese.
I thought it would be interesting to discuss what you consider to be necessary for a well stocked home kitchen. Things like materials, places to save money versus spend more, etc are important points to make. For this thread, let's discuss cookware choices. Here is what I consider important: 1 large stockpot, Al or stainless, 12 or 16 quart 1 small stockpot, Al or stainless 8 quart 1 cast iron dutch oven, 4 quart 1 cast iron skillet, 12 inch 1 stainless saute...
No one preserves food at all, not even for gourmet reasons? I've been asking my parents. . . apparently they have a very old sauerkraut crock that my great grandparents brought with them when they came to the US. Seems kind of wasteful to not use it.
I found a very nice copper sauce pot once. I debated buying it for a while, but I had never heard of the name, so I decided I would look it up first. When I went back to buy it, they had sold it already. Every now and then I find seconds of nice cookware there as well.
Some extended family of mine owned a restaurant. Some other extended family worked in the restaurant. All kinds of BS went on. No one was happy. The business folded. In summary, choose your family wisely before you are born.

I ALWAYS prefer to use my credit card, because they are far more likely to protect me. Something goes wrong? "Here's your new card overnighted to you sir, we've removed the fraudulent charges, sorry for the problems". Paypal just seems too shady of an operation for me to use them. In fact, I avoid ebay and paypal like the plague.

Well, don't be so quick to judge. . . During b-school, I built what I would consider to be a pretty elegant little model. I was then reprimanded by my professor for presenting the model as my own. . . in essence he accused me of plagiarizing, despite the fact that he...
Sorry to hear about that. Condolences.
