@ Mr. Nick that sounds very tasty! Thanks for the 411

Asian Vegetables in Non-Asian Dishes

@ Mr. Nick:
I'm confused; I thought beurre blanc is a white butter sauce - kombu and green tea are green.......so how did it taste?
Thanks

Tea taste test/brand preferences?

I drink ONLY iced tea; use either luzianne or (believe it or not) great value. surprisingly, luzianne is usually less expensive than great value.

Too Salty Ma Po Tofu

So I had this jar of Ma Po Tofu sauce that I used the other day, (I bought it before I learned how easy it is to make from scratch), added one pound ground pork, sautéed, and one pound cubed tofu as per the instructions. It is so salty as to be inedible, even just using a tiny bit with rice. I hate to throw it away, I'm looking for ideas to remove the saltiness, or reduce it by adding something.
Any ideas are welcome.
Thanks

gochujang sauce uses

Made a road trip to an Asian (apologize if this is not a correct term) grocery today, and scored lots of yummy things. One item is a HUGE jar of gochujang sauce. Since the jar says it's fermented, I was wondering if it can be used as a kimchi base? I make kimchi quite well if somewhat unorthodoxly and doesn't always get as funky as I'd like, so was just thinking this could be a basis for the initial seasoning? Also, any other uses/recipes would be welcome.Thanks!

Anchovy Help

So, I have this ongoing issue when I purchase anchovies packed in oil. When I remove them from the can and use them, I put them into a jar, refrigerate them, and they basically turn into mush.
Today I bought a jar of flat fillets, and I was wondering if they REALLY have to be refrigerated? The jar does not say "refrigerate after opening".
What say you: refrigerate or not?
Thanks

I want a Toaster Oven, But

The options are many and confusing. I thought I had one picked out, but it got some bad reviews. I think I want convection, don't care about non-stick or rotisserie. Large and capable enough for a chicken or pizza, around $100-125. Thanks!
