Not Thanksgiving, yet, but the National Day of the modern country of Turkey. The Ottoman Empire, defeated in World War I, ceased to exist today in 1923. In its place was a republic led by Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. In the next few years, the sultanate was abolished and the country became officially secular. Turkey is now quite modern, although still unambiguously Islamic. All the cuisines we think of as Middle Eastern originally came Turkey; Ottoman Empire's long influence installed the Turkish style of cooking from Greece through Israel and Egypt across to Morocco.
This is National Oatmeal Day. Oatmeal began to be eaten as a hot breakfast porridge in Scotland. Most of the ways we eat oatmeal in this country are similar to the Scottish recipes. The two kinds of oatmeal both come from the same grain. Steel-cut oatmeal--made by chopping the grains--is preferable, but takes longer to cook. Rolled oatmeal is made by steaming the grains, then squashing them between rollers. Some nourishment and flavor are lost in that process, but it's so much more convenient that it dominates the market.
Since oats are historically grown in cold areas, that's where you find most oatmeal. The competition from grits as the preferred hot cereal in the South adds to the relative rarity of oatmeal there. However, everybody makes and eats oatmeal muffins and cookies, especially since the discovery that they lower cholesterol.
The small rural crossroads called Oats is seventy miles northeast of Columbia, the capital of South Carolina. Oats is on Boggy Gully, a half-mile downstream from a dam that forms Harold's Millpond. The sluggish, swampy waterway leads through others like it to the Pee Dee River, which flows into the Atlantic Ocean. The town name is also spelled Oates, in honor of Bill Oates, who bought land here in 1824 and began a plantation. By the 1880s, the town had grown large enough to have a school. About 150 people live there now, and farming is still dominant. That's not enough to support a cafe in the town, but you can eat at Mr. B's (no connection with the one on New Orleans), two miles away in Hartsville.
farro, farro, n.--An early form of cultivated wheat grown in the Mediterranean since prehistoric times. It's also known as emmer or spelt, but some authorities claim that it's subtly different from both. It's cooked and eaten as whole grain, especially in Italy. A soup of farro is still popular there, thought of as very homely. In this country, farro is largely the province of health food stores and their customers, but in the past few years some chefs have begun cooking it to add variety to the grain side of their menus.
Turning Points In Cooking
Today in 1929 was Black Tuesday, the day Wall Street laid an egg (as Variety reported). The stock market lost about a fifth of its value in one day, an event often noted as the beginning of the Great Depression. Those hard times changed eating habits for a lot of people. Many of us know (or were descendants of) folks whose styles of cooking were very frugal. My own mother (and most people of her generation) were that way. One of the first books written by legendary food writer M.F. K. Fisher was on this subject: How To Cook A Wolf, referring to the proverbial wolf at the door. Those who filled the gaps left when the fearful backed away from work and life did well.
Deft Dining Rule #202
If a restaurant owner complains to you about how tough times are right now, he is trying to persuade you of the necessity of his lowering standards. Expect a less than perfect meal.
The Old Kitchen Sage Sez:
Before you add oats to cookies or muffins, put them into a skillet over medium heat, dry, and let them brown a little around the edges. Gives a nice toasty flavor.

Ahead of I.P.O., Twitter Alters Feed to Add Images
The social network, which has been built around 140-character snippets of text since its founding in 2006, has added photo and video previews to the feed of items that users see when they log onto the service from the Web or mobile applications. In the past, Twitter users had to click on a link to see a photo or video.
The change, which helps Twitter catch up to recent moves by rivals like Facebook to showcase photos and videos more prominently, could help increase the use of Twitter as the company prepares to sell stock to the public for the first time in an offering expected to occur next week.
The addition could also help the company sell more ads with visual elements.
Robert Peck, an Internet analyst with SunTrust Robinson Humphrey, said that the adjustment to Twitter’s look addressed a concern he had heard from potential buyers of Twitter’s stock. “It was all text, for the most part. There was no multimedia,” he said. “People thought Twitter was behind.”
Twitter has traditionally resisted tinkering with its message feed, which it calls the timeline, because it has wanted to keep its display of tweets as streamlined as possible.
The turn toward the visual is the biggest change to Twitter’s interface since it was overhauled in 2011, although the company has recently introduced other changes, including a blue line that groups related messages so that users can more easily follow a conversation.
With Tuesday’s change, tweets will still show up in chronological order, with the most recent first. But the tweets that contain photos uploaded to Twitter or six-second videos from Vine, a video-creation service owned by Twitter, will automatically preview those images.
“Starting today, timelines on Twitter will be more visual and more engaging: previews of Twitter photos and videos from Vine will be front and center in tweets,” Michael Sippey, Twitter’s vice president for product, wrote in a blog post on Tuesday. “To see more of the photo or play the video, just tap.”
If users embrace the change, Twitter could also add automatic previews of other types of links, like articles and web pages or images and videos from outside sites like Google’s YouTube.
That technology is already used to preview a variety of sites on Twitter’s Discover tab, a little-used feature of the service that is meant to help users find new content they might like based on the users they follow and topics in which they have expressed interest.
The company is also experimenting with ways to highlight other types of messages, like those about television shows, although no other changes have yet been released to all users.
Although a more visual feed does not directly affect advertisers on Twitter, it does improve the company’s position in the battle for mobile ad dollars.
Instagram, the photo-sharing service owned by Facebook, just began selling visual ads on its service from brands like Adidas and Lexus that are sprinkled into the flow of messages that users see.
Twitter’s principal form of advertising, known as a sponsored tweet, also appears in the stream of messages from users, and advertisers can post sponsored tweets with images in them.
Industry research shows that users are far more likely to click on an ad with a photo in it. Since Twitter is paid by the advertiser only when a user interacts with an ad, more responses to or sharing of image-based ads would most likely lead to an increase in revenue. Some on Wall Street have expressed worries about the company’s slowing growth ahead of its initial public offering of stock.
In the third quarter, Twitter had 232 million users who checked the service at least once a month, up just 6.4 percent from the previous quarter and an increase of 39 percent from the previous year. That is far less than the double-digit quarterly growth rates that Facebook posted when it was the same size as Twitter.
Clark Fredricksen, a vice president at the digital research firm eMarketer, said that Twitter’s decision to make its feed more visually attractive makes sense on multiple levels and helps it compete with the image and video-friendly services of competitors like Instagram, Snapchat and Facebook.
“This move may help Twitter more deeply engage users, which is vital for its long-term growth,” he said in an email. “At the very least it allows users to perform some of the same actions that helped Twitter’s competitors grow quickly.”

Too Much Cheddar and Jalapeno Muffins
I put too much dang cheese in my muffins… which was such an awesome accident.
There was an incident between a spoon and a jar of Nutella: accidentally-on-purpose. Should we talk about the pickle jar that I decimated for no good reason? No. It was an accident (on purpose).
I also bought a pair of wedge sneakers (ohhh heck YES I did)… and my elongated calves could not be happier. I suppose I should tell you now that the real-talk you might expect around these parts also includes talk of super trendy, totally ridiculous shoes.
These muffins are wonderfully satisfying to make. No stand mixer required. If you have a bowl and a big spoon, you’re halfway home. This is a dump and stir situation.
Flour, baking powder, and salt are combined with melted butter, milk, and egg. The rest is just cheese and jalapeno and I LOVE when that happens.
These muffins are somewhere between muffins and custard. We have an astronomical amount of cheese to thank.
Should we talk about the cheese to flour ratio? No. It’s perfect.
This is a moist muffin batter. It makes for a deliciously tender muffin.
It was my natural inclination to make these cheese bombs spicy. I added diced pickled jalapeno and topped each muffin with a pickled jalapeno button.
Served warm from the oven, these muffins are melty, tender, almost custard-like treats. Served at room temperature with a giant bowl of chili, these muffins are also spot on. You can’t really go wrong.
One note about using paper cupcake liners with these muffins… when warm, the muffins will stick to the paper. When the muffins are room temperature, the muffins will come out of the papers easily. To avoid this nonsense, just grease and flour a muffin tin instead of using cupcake liners.
One note about my awesome new wedge sneakers… I may look back on this post in a year from now and have regrets. About the shoes… not the muffins. I’m ok with that.
Jalapeno Cheddar Cheese Muffins
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
1/4 cup unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
3 cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
3 tablespoons diced pickled jalapeno
12 pickled jalapeno rounds for topping
sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper for topping.
*One note about using paper cupcake liners with these muffins! When warm, the muffins will stick to the paper. When muffins are room temperature, the papers will come out of the papers easily. To avoid this nonsense, just grease and flour a muffin tin instead of using cupcake liners.
Place a rack in the upper third of the oven and preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease and flour a 12 cup muffin tin and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Set aside.
In a small bowl, whisk together milk, egg, and melted butter.
Add the wet ingredients all at once to the dry ingredients. Stir to incorporate. Before the mixture is entirely mixed, add the grated cheese and diced jalapeno. Stir to incorporate making sure that the mixture is evenly moistened and the cheese is well distributed.
Divide batter between prepared muffin tins. Top each with a jalapeno round and sprinkle with sea salt and cracked pepper.
Bake muffins for 20 to 25 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Muffins are best served warm.

O Wise One and I are kindred spirits! I love peanut butter with apples. Peanut butter is an essential for me! I love all things nuts!
You're so far ahead of me, it isn't even funny. I want to be you when I grow up. LOL You and O Wise One have created something wonderful and amazing. And what a legacy of dedication, self sufficiency, and hard work you are leaving for you children and grandchildren. I've never seen two people who work more diligently to grow and preserve their own food. What you do is truly commendable. and that you share it all with us, through this blog, is such a blessing and inspiration. (Can you tell I'm a fan?) May God grant that you continue for many years to come.
Such sweet words from someone that I respect very much for your work on youtube!
My eyes popped out when I saw all those bell peppers. love those on lots of stuff, but also sliced and eaten as snacks. We will be growing bell peppers this next year!! I went to buy one orange bell pepper as I like it better in my homemade pumpkin soup. They were on SALE..ha. for $2.50 EACH. No way was I paying that much for one pepper.
Love your posts as always.
After loosing almost all our apples the past 2 years to insects and fungus, I VERY RELECTANTLY resorted to a light 2 stage spraying early on this year. The result was an amazing crop. Oh, the dilemma of tradeoffs! I am curious about your soapy water method.
My elderly mother in law who lived here all her life in her 90's told me to pour soapy water around the roots of my fruit trees. She said that root worms eat the roots if you don't and the trees will just die and fall over. I have done it religiously for years several times a growing season. Always at the end and several times early in the year. I just take a 5 gallon bucket and mix up about 2 cups non biodegradable dish soap, horticulture soap or even liquid soap and pour around the base of the trees. Remember that the roots go all the way to the end of the canopy and do not use DETERGENT! Make sure it is soap. you can spray it on the bark also.

Spanish-Style Saffron Rice with Black Beans
Even those of us who are avid cooks sometimes desire a meal without fuss, but one that is nourshing and satisfying all the same. This colorful and hearty dish is a vegetarian twist on paella. Although there's neither meat nor seafood, the common component of paella, it's very much inspired by traditional paellas with short grain rice, vegetables and beans seasoned with saffron — from which the dish gets its reddish and glowing color — and spices, all cooked in a single large skillet, from which paella, "frying pan" in Valencian, gets its name. A generous helping of black olives stirred in at the end adds a final twist of robust yet complimentary flavor.
Crumbled Paneer with Fresh Mint, Cilantro and Spiced Green Peas
Although I'm not a vegan, I do find as the years go by that I have been moving away from including dairy in many of my meals. But one dairy food that I can never see myself giving up is paneer cheese — also known as Indian cottage cheese, it's a soft but firm, creamy and succulent fresh cheese that doesn't melt when cooked, making it a wonderful addition to curries and other hot foods, or the main feature in its own dish.
Paneer cheese is the star ingredient of this vibrant but simple curry that you can put together in half an hour. The paneer is crumbled and simmered with tomatoes, fresh herbs, tender sweet green peas, and crushed seeds. Crushing the cumin and coriander seeds adds distinction to this dish, as the aromatic flavors of the seeds assert their presence with the bold flavors of fresh mint and cilantro. All the tastes mingle so nicely with the creamy paneer cheese in a dish that dances with flavor, fragrance and color.
Chickpeas in a Coconut Milk Karhi Sauce
A treasured dish for many years in my kitchen, I decided to mix things up a bit with a vegan version of this recipe for Tender Chickpeas in Golden Karhi Sauce. Karhi or Kadhi sauce is a creamy gravy with the primary base being chickpea flour to thicken the sauce. Traditionally made with yogurt and buttermilk which results in a slightly sour flavor, the sauce is usually thinner when such savories such as pakoras or kofta are featured, and commonly served with rice and/or Indian flatbreads on the side, such as roti or paratha. I've used chickpeas to fill out the dish in this case, and instead of yogurt and cream, I used coconut milk, and cut down on the amount of liquid used for a slightly thicker sauce. It is not quite as sour, but if you want a slightly more sour taste, then consider adding a scant teaspoon of amchoor power or a few teaspoons of lemon juice near the end of the cooking time. I think I might like this version even better than the original one, but either way, whether you wish to use yogurt or coconut milk, it's a dish that very well might become a staple one in your kitchen too.
Another advantage of this dish is the ease of preparation. With little chopping, it comes together in hardly anytime at all, especially if you skip using dried chickpeas, though with a little planning the night before, I recommend using dried beans, as they are more economical and better for you, as sadly so many canned varieties include salt or other preservatives, and I much prefer adding my own seasonings.

Perfect Deviled Eggs
May 18th, 2020 by Ed Bruske
We love deviled eggs, but there’s so much anxiety around the issue of the shells peeling cleanly from the hard-boiled eggs. It’s such a disappointment when they don’t, leaving big, unsightly gouges in the those perfectly formed whites. The reason for this–scientifically speaking–is because of membranes–called chalazea–that attach the egg to the inside of the shell called . This is supposed to keep the egg centered and safe while a chick is developing. Chick or no, the egg will cling to the shell when fresh. Only as the egg gets older do these membranes degrade and the clinging ease.
For this reason, common wisdom held that it was better to use old eggs for hard-boiling (poaching is just the opposite–use eggs as fresh as possible). But how are you supposed to know how old those eggs are in the carton you just purchased?
We’ve tried all kinds of methods for hard-boiled eggs to solve the peeling problem. For a while we were using a complicated process recommended by Julia Child that involved immersing the cooked eggs alternately in hot, then iced water. That did not always work.
But now we’ve discovered a way to hard-boil eggs that always peel perfectly. We don’t care how young or old our eggs are any more.
To hard-boil six to eight eggs, mix six cups water with 1/4 cup distilled vinegar and 1 Tablespoon salt. Bring to a boil. Gently place the eggs in the boiling water and cook at a slow boil uncovered for 14 minutes. Then drain the eggs and run them under cold water in the pot until they are cool to the touch. Peel. You’ll be amazed how easily the shells are removed.
Now you are ready to make whatever deviled eggs you prefer. My favorite has a Szechuan kick:
After slicing the eggs in half lengthwise, display the whites on a plate lined with fresh salad greens. Mash the yolks in a mixing bowl, then blend with 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise (or to taste), 1 Tablespoon garlic chili paste and a pinch of salt. In a skillet, toast 1 teaspoon Szechuan peppercorns, then grind to a fine powder in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder. Add this to the yolk mix.
Spoon or pipe the yolk mix into the whites and garnish with chopped chives.
