Re: Turnips Cooking....

In my opinion, the easiest and tastiest way to cook turnips is to:
(1) Peel
(2) Quarter or half
(3) Boil in salted water until fork tender
(4) Season with butter, salt & pepper
(5) Serve

Turnips Cooking....

Since I was not feeling very chipper late last summer ,my turnips were planted too late last fall to mature. My down-the-road neighbor knew this and he brought me 2-5 gal. buckets of fresh-pulled turnips late this afternoon. And, since turnips (once out of the ground) need to be dealt with as rapidl...

Re: Ice Storage

Sometimes, I make my own ice by vacuum packaging tap water and freezing the plastic bag(s). This way, I do not have to worry about the water soaking meats, breads, vegetables, etc.

The bag can be refrozen or the contents can be used as potable water.

Re: Ice Storage

I use my FoodSaver to vacuum pack my ice. The vacuum seal prevents the ice from evaporating while the ice is stored in the freezer.

When I use the vacuum packaged ice in my cooler; after it melts, I have a sealed bag of potable water.

I own a EU2000i and I am of the opinion that you and the community would be better served with a single EU2000i than two EU1000i's. My reasons for suggesting a single EU2000i are: 1. A single EU2000i would cost you much less than two EU1000i's 2. A single EU2000i will be quieter than two EU1000i's 2...

Re: Drilling holes for rebar

I think that I read somewhere on this form a month or so ago that if you pre-drill a rebar hole and then pour in a bit of clean/clear water that you can firmly set the rebar in the hole.

Has anyone had any experience using this technique?
