I'm not familiar with Carpano Antica vermouth - do you think this would work well with any sweet vermouth or is the Carpano Antica flavor pretty essential?
Tried this out with some friends tonight. Turned out great!
Out of curiosity, why don't you guys want an air popper? We had one at home when I was a kid and it always worked pretty well.
Thanks again for all the inspiration everyone! Last week we did Dutch Babies (or German Pancakes as I grew up calling them). It went really well! The kids (and moms) were amazed at how they puffed up in the oven.
This week we're going do homemade biscuits, and while they're in the oven we'll be making homemade butter by shaking cream in a jar. It should be a good time!
Wow! You guys are amazing! Thanks for all the great ideas, I'm sure a lot of these will work great.
Loving these ideas everyone!
PoorOldMama - I can't believe I didn't think of doing dutch babies! I have thought of doing soup, but we only have an hour for the class. Do you think we'd be able to get a soup ready to eat in that time?
AnnieNT - Making peanut butter sounds awesome! I think the kids would really love that. Do you remember how you guys did it in kindergarten? I'd like to have it as hands-on for the kids as possible.
Fudge. Definitely fudge.
Not sure if this is exactly what you had in mind, but your post reminded me of a burger Kenji made a while back: http://aht.seriouseats.com/archives/2010/02/the-burger-lab-presenting-the-flood-burger.html
Am I missing something? Only 2/4 of those are Oregon cheeses. Cascadia Creamery is in Washington and Central Coast Creamery is in California.
@plazmaorb - At the end of the article he mentions cooking in a dutch oven at 225 for the same time as the slow cooker.
I LOVE Fruit Loops. Growing up we never had sugary cereal in the house, so going to my grandparents' was always a treat. They'd have their pantry stocked with those variety packs of mini cereal boxes. My favorites were always Fruit Loops and Honey Smacks.
It's there! Thanks, Kenji!
Yeah, I don't see it either.
Made these over the weekend, and they turned out very nicely. Swapped the raisins for dried cranberries, and added some orange juice and zest to the glaze. Don't have a springform pan but a sheet pan worked just fine for me.
