So, when I wanted to make some non-lethal habanero bitters, after peeling the inside membrane, I washed the peppers off in vodka briefly (30 sec or so) before using them for the bitters. The vodka used in the washing was intensely hot and not too peppery-tasting, leading me to think that it washed off more heat than flavor. The bitters turned out awesome, but still have a kick.

What was the item Jeffrey had bought across the street and was going to cure? I heard it as “Peach Owls”.

I just finished “The Man Who Ate Everything” and had read through the posts on CI about the perfect fry before getting to Jeffrey’s chapter on the same topic.

While the CI crew got into the best way to cook fries Jeffrey spent a few pages waxing poetically about the best fat to cook them in… specifically horse fat. Considering that it’s been at least 15 years since he wrote that chapter, I’d love to know if he’s familiar with the research Dave, Nils, and crew have done and what he considers to be the attributes of a perfect fry.
