    Go to a seedy supermarket frequented by Mexicans. You will find it in a package that looks like a truck stop candy pack, in between the Mexican candles, Jarritos, and the candy that comes in turck stop candy packs.

    I have a friend that pours left over wine into empty water bottles so there is no air space. He swears by it and I guess it makes sense when you think about the goal being to get air out of the storage bottle.

    At Whole Foods they usually have it in the spices that look like this:

    The good news is that you don't have to buy to much. The bad news is that you have to deal with the Whole Foods types.

    Some guy on the court forum swears by putting it into clean beer bottles and putting a crown cap on it. Makes sense since you can fill it high and the crown cqp is the beat seal.

    huh?
    I've decided to take a hybrid approach to this lamb leg- I'm going to give it a dry brine with an anchovy, salt, rosemary, garlic and pepper paste, camp that out in the fridge for a coupe days, then roast it covered and slow at 180, and follow that up with a quick broil for color and crispiness.

    Very easy.

    Basically you make the tart dough.
    Then make a pastry cream.......... or, for instance, if you were wanting to help foodguy out a bit, you could even use his lemon curd recipe....
    then you glaze the fruit with a light syrup
    then you put in pattisserie window and slap a 4 Euro sign on it

    Is there any soup that is not made exponentially better by either cooking with a parmesan rind or melting in a few thin strips of parm at the end?
