One of my camping buddies recently gave me some homemade rabbit meat jerky, and suffice to say, I was pleasantly surprised. It doesn’t taste like beef- the flavor was less intense, but with just a tad bit of sweetness. It’s pretty similar to chicken, but richer.
In the culinary world, we love sharp knives. The sharper your knife is, the more control you have while you slice, dice, and chop. Having a finely honed blade can make a world of difference in terms of prep speed and can let you prepare some incredibly beautiful feats of knife work.
The BARF, or “bones and raw food” diet, has picked up a lot of traction in recent years. It sounds pretty disgusting (both due to the acronym and the meaning of the letters), but the participants don’t seem to care. Instead, they live happy, healthy lives while eating ground-up animal parts that you would normally discard.
I’ve got many great memories of idyllic summers spent basking in the sun with a cup of shaved ice in my hand. While future me would tell past me to wear more sunscreen, I’m eager to pass along these wonderful times to the next generation. These are my favorite shaved ice machines to use when those opportunities arise. Of course, they’re also great for enjoying shaved ice yourself, or even for making mixed drinks.
Whether you’ve got a full-sized home bar or you just have a setup in your kitchen that doubles as a bar, you might have noticed that things aren’t quite the same as they are in a professional bar. For starters, you’ve (probably) got a more limited supply of alcohol. You also don’t have beer on tap, you have to wash the dishes yourself, and you might not have timed pour nozzles on every single bottle of booze in your arsenal.
