actually, that is symptomatic of the boutique vegetable culture. if you want standardized flavor, you're going to miss the highs as well as the lows.

Huh? Wouldn't the Gaviota count as a boutique fruit?
post #5343 of 7224
what i was trying to point out is that variety is an indicator but not a guarantor of quality. buying gaviota is not like buying zegna (or steed ...). there's a confluence of factors that go into fruit and vegetable quality -- variety, yes, but also climate, weather (they are different), season, location and the talent of the farmer. if it was up to me, i'd have people buy according to the farmer, as that's the surest indicator of quality ... i'd rather have a great farmer growing a mediocre variety than a mediocre farmer growing the most cherished heirloom. sorry for the rant.foo.gif

No need to apologize, I just didn't quite understand the part about standardized flavor. Agree with everything in your last post.


But I like to razz Matthew for that quote. biggrin.gif

i have like 2 pounds of fluke in my fridge. Any serving suggestions?
post #5346 of 7224
i might freeze it at least slightly before cooking. fluke is HIGHLY prone to worms.

noted.

And to prepare? I have enough that I can do a few different preparations.

All the seasoning experts: how should I season my carbon steel pan? I'd like it to smoke as few as possible. De Buyer's manual says 1cm oil and five minutes of heat. Enough? I know, has been discussed already, but it's really just one sentence. wink.gif

Filtered flaxseed oil. Wipe excess away with paper towel. Put in oven cold upside down. Bake on the highest setting possible for an hour. Leave to cool. Take out. Repeat process many times.

It'll smoke a little but less than if you use unfiltered

I figured you would prefer proper sentences rather than a runon sentence

No oven available, unfortunately. shog[1].gif
