  • Would using milk powder better than fresh milk when poaching? Jack

    I read this question - What is the effect of poaching fish in milk? and was surprise that one can poach fish using milk.

    However, I was wondering if the milk will be spoil if it is continuous being cooked? And also would it be better if milk powder is used instead of just fresh milk?

  • Poaching is a gentle process - the milk isn't boiling so there is no risk of it burning or the like. It will of course not spoil in the sense of it going off, that's a totally different process.

    Fresh milk is better because, well, it's fresh. Powdered milk would probably work, but if you have fresh, use that.

  • I recently came across a recipe for fish poached in milk. I've never heard of this technique, and am skeptical of its effect (vs. water), so it sounds wasteful to cook fish in 4 cups of milk only to discard the milk afterwards. After a quick Google search, I found that it's done in some cuisines. So I'm wondering what, if any, effect does poaching fish in milk have?

  • Assuming a big city on the Easter Seaboard in the U.S. with a fresh fish market, what would you say are the best bets for sushi-grade freshness when it comes to types of fish? What I have done before is buy a tuna steak and smell it before and also make sure it doesn't have the rainbowy sheen on the surface -- never got sick. Do you know of other types of fish that are typically fresh enough at fish markets that you could use to make sushi?

  • Currently, I am using condensed milk together with whole grain cereal. So, I was wondering if it is possible to use other type of milk - such as low-fat milk powder and cook it together with whole grain cereal?

  • they turn cocoa dust into instant chocolate milk powder? I've already figured out that ordinary baking cocoa is the weakly de-oiled one.

  • I have a recipe for a normal Victoria sponge. I also have a huge box of Swiss hot chocolate powder. (The kind you sprinkle onto hot milk to make drinking chocolate.) Is drinking chocolate a good way to add chocolate flavour to a cake? Or is that likely to not work? How would I go about using it? Can I just add it, or do I need to adjust the other ingredients? How much should I use?

  • I froth my milk using the steam wand on my espresso machine. With a national-brand organic whole milk, I am able to get a perfect micro foam nearly 100% of the time. However, when I instead use a local, grass-fed, organic whole milk (whose flavor I prefer to the national brand), I am only able to produce a perfect micro foam about 20% of the time.

  • I am planning on making some chili powder this weekend using ancho, pasilla, and guajillo peppers. This is a follow-up to the question about storage-lifetime that is to do with the powder itself. The other concern I have is to do with what is flexible in a chili powder, and what tweaks I can/should make; I've never made a spice blend before, and would appreciate some specific tips. I am weighing the different variables of how to prepare the chili powder itself (i.e. I was a bit disappointed to see more than one "recipe" with one step: "blend"). How does preparation work for powders? If I

  • Since it will be cold for some time, I was thinking of using my detached, unheated shed to pickle some veggies. But another thought I was having was to actually cure/can some herrings or sardines (or another kind of blue fish) in a jar with water and salt. Is it possible to do that similar to how veggies are pickled? I was thinking that the brine I would put the fish in would act as a preservative and the fish would be edible after some time of curing? Is this doable or is it just a bats**t crazy idea?
