  1. Likely you pressure canned it, High pressure increases the temperature. That is why I like using high pressure to sanitize jars before I use for canning.
  2. I have finalized cheddar cheese Ciabatta recipe. Earlier in week I did pilot test run and for actual batch change I made was also to add some extra shredded cheddar cheese on top. Ciabatta method used was Poolish method, and I used 25 % cheddar cheese half was cubed and half shredded. This recipe is now family favourite.
  3. I thought I would share how far my skills have come along. Here are some photos from Baguette De Tradition recipe that I finalized weights for that take into account scale tolerances and potential lost dough during process. I will be guest on zoom session for Barb’s Kitchen Centre teaching how to make this style of Baguettes in October. I am really looking forward to be being guest for teaching how to do this style of Baguette.
  4. My retort pouches arrived today. Very impressed how quickly they arrived. Although I paid for on Tuesday, payment processed Wednesday and then shipment arrived Friday afternoon.
  5. Small briner doesn’t fit, just a little too tall. This time I sealed small jar of Atahara, and large jar of pickled beets that both have been previously opened. Worked very well
  6. I also love the JVR Vac100. JVR inc are a very responsive company. I also tried sealing a jar that had been opened. It worked very well with resealing bread and butter pickle pint jar. Make sure you wipe the rim before placing lid on. My small Briner looks like will fit inside the 3 gallon accessory. Next time I use the small briner I will put it under vacuum using the 3 gallon accessory. I also used the the Vac100 to vacuum seal a Costco cheese bun. I used 10 second to vacuum time other settings remained the same and bun was vacuum sealed without crushing it. I love using the Vac100 to seal frozen 1 cup portions of stone ground oats, and I. 1 tsp and 2 tsp portions or frozen lemon juice. Also sealed chicken thighs etc, I am impressed with how well it works.
  7. I just tested my setting #3 programmed for use with the retort bar with retort pouches. I tested setting JVR Inc recommend for Retort pouch. Looking forward to being able to make my own MRE’s for camping and Backcountry hiking. After sealing the pouches with stew, chilli etc will be pressure canned.
  8. For medium crust 373 g for thin crust 258 g. I calculate using 3.3015 per g square inch for medium crust and 2.285 g per square inch for thin crust. I calculate area of circle for size I desire and then multiply by factor for thin or medium crust depending on what I am making. I using make a small bit extra to ensure all pizza balls will have similar weight,
  9. I use half moon cast grate. I can do 3 smash burgers.
  10. Made some Baguettes De Tradition this week recipe from straight dough section the book ‘Bread’ A Baker’s book of Techniques and Recipes, 2 nd edition. You can see my shaping has improved but there is still more room for improvement.
  11. New York-Style Sourdough Pizza Cubano, recipe from Kingarthurbaking website, I scaled down recipe down to 700g to make 2 thin crust pizzas as my initial test run. I made a modification to recipe instead of using 2.5% medium rye flour and 2.5% whole wheat flour, I used 5% whole rye flour. To support local businesses I got the pork shoulder and rub from Charlie’s Place in Sherwood park. I spilt the shoulder into 3 pieces. 1 piece I coated with avacodo mayonnaise, after rubbing with Salej Spice Sweet Heat seasoning I then chopped some rosemary and put some whole rosemary with chopped rosemary onto shoulder and vacuum sealed all 3 pieces with my chamber vacuum sealer and placed in refrigerator to marinate for a few hours. The other two pieces which were vacuum sealed were placed in my freezer for use later this year. I smoked the marinated seasoned shoulder for 1 hour then finished shoulder and ham in my Kuhn Rikon Pressure cooker because I needed to have pizzas ready for Dinner. Shredded the shoulder and chopped up some of the ham. Spicy & sweet mustard sauce used as sauce for the two pizzas. I used my dough docker to prevent middle of pizza from expanding. The pizzas were baked on my Kamado on pizza stone at 500 F. The crust was nice and crispy. This pizza tasted very good. My wife prefers the softer style crusts.
  12. Welcome aboard, sorry about loss of BGE, the plus side is you will have a Kamado once your Big Joe II arrives.
  13. Looks delicious. I would never have thought of doing chips with rotisserie
