Easter is coming up, you can always make unleavened bread and sell it to the theists.  win-win.

Randall, glad your bread turned out, even if only getting a half rise. Oh dear, that means my yeast is old, I haven't baked yeast bread for a very long time. I'll have to test it.

When I came across a couple of old yeast packets, I decided to try my hand at making bread. I followed the recipe to a T, allowing the yeast to do its thing and the waiting for the bread to rise. It just sat there. I waited over 2 hours. In desparation I added baking powder and soda, kneading them into the loaves. It must have worked because they rose when I baked them in my convection oven! They only rose half way, but I was satisfied. I usually ignore "best used by..." dates, but  when the yeast package says "use before Sept 2012", believe it! (The bread tasted good.)

Randall, I tried Pepper-Jack cheese on my cornmeal mush and I agree.  It improved the taste considerably.

I like the cocktail sauce too. There are fake seafood "chunks" - which taste almost exactly like fake chicken "chunks" - that I like to dip in coctail sauce.

Randall, be careful with that burner - I have visions of carbon monoxide...... But you probably have it vented well already.

I do still like horseradish, but not in the amount of my close encounter of the first kind. Love in shrimp cocktail sauce, in a sauce I've had with corned beef, and with beef.  I've heard it goes well in a bloody mary, except I don't do vodka, so the latter comes under hearsay.

One thing I don't grow is horseradish. But I use it out of a jar. I do love Brussels sprouts which I grow. Bs haters usually have only eaten them out of a can! 

Lately, I've been cooking food over (or in) a bucket of hot coals taken from my basement wood burner. Using a grate, I've done salmon, sausage, and tortilla. Last night I tossed in a potato. Why didn't I think of this before? Such smoked flavor!

Joan, sometimes your experiences sound more like my family, than my experiences! You connect me to my hetitage. What a great story!

I love the NPR Mama Stamburg cranberry sauce with horseradish, and tArtar sauce, and mix with some mayo for fake chicken filets. Being veg I dont eat the real ones but with horseradish they could be made from cardboard and still be tasty.

I was trying to think of other painful foods I like. Hot Chinese mustard on eggrolls. Lots of things with hot peppers.

Pat I hope that didnt completely turn you off horseradish. It is a great treat.

I love spinach sauteed with a bit of chopped bacon with some horseradish added for zest.

Oh Pat! what an introduction to Horseradish!

When I was a kid, when it came horseradish harvest time, my aunts and uncles and cousins came over to our house. We dug them up, washed them off. Set put fans at the back of the garage, tables in the front, and started grinding horseradish. Everyone cried and cried and the fans didn't blow fast enough to keep the vapors from our eyes. 

I love horseradish harvests!
