Don't you have a Cub down there? They sell plain ground pork.
No meat markets?

Do the Hy-Vee guys actually cut meat? They should be able to grind
something for you (butt roast, imo)

No Cub Foods! Can you believe it? As for plain ground pork,
sometimes it's available, sometimes it's not. I STILL haven't gotten
around to trying my birthday meat grinder! Something to do with my
kitchen being a total disaster area. I should be able to grind some
pork up on my own once I get the battle zone cleared. And when I do,
I'll take pictures! <SMILE>

I'll bet they do! We like their meat area. They all take obvious
pride in their work. Ask them about their products and they stand a
bit taller when they answer you. It's good to see.

I'll check,

Make sure your pork chunks are partially frozen when you grind them. Do
some research here a coupla mid-Decembers back and you'll know why I so
advise.

If they're actually cutting meat back there, there's no reason they
shouldn't be able to grind for you. (Why does that sound vaguely
raunchy?) You might call ahead and ask what the rules are -- maybe
they'll only grind pork if they've been using their saws on pork or
something like that. No joke. And bring 'em a plate of Christmas
cookies,. Can't hurt. :-)

I don't remember what it was about the Cuban sandwich; I think it had to
do with the word "authentic". Calling anything "authentic" will start a
squabble (notice the recurring theme in your following list)

We almost forgot one: asking vaguely for "recipes from Europe."

Best regards,
Bob

Obligatory recipe from Europe: (I haven't tried it)

CIBREO CON CARCIOFI E PATATE (Sausage of Chicken Liver
and Other Parts with a Lemon-Cream Sauce with Potatoes and Artichokes)

4 artichokes
1 c olive oil
1 garlic clove
1 salt and pepper to taste
2 potatoes; peeled, washed, and very thinly sliced
2 oz butter
4 oz onion; chopped very fine
1 c chicken consume
1 pn hot pepper
2 egg yolks
1/2 lemon; juiced
1 sausage
4 oz duck testicles
5 oz cocks combs
4 oz chicken kidneys; cut into small cubes
6 oz chicken livers; cut into small pieces
1/2 ts rosemary; chopped
1/2 ts sage; chopped
2 duck neck skins or breast-skin from mallard duck

Instructions

For the artichokes, cut the leaves and just keep the bottom. Remove the
beard from inside with a spoon and place in water and lemon juice. Cut
the bottom into thin slices. In a skillet heat olive oil. Add garlic and
salt and pepper and saute for 5 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.

To prepare potatoes, in an oiled pan, place the sliced potatoes in a
circle to form a galette in a non stick pan. Brown on both sides until
nice and golden. Keep warm.

To Prepare the sausage, blanch the duck testicles in salted boiling
water for 2 minutes. Remove them and place on a towel to dry. Cut into
slices, 1/8-inch thick.

Meanwhile, cook the cocks comb in salted water until tender, about 2
hours them and dry thoroughly. Cut the cocks comb into thin strips and
place in a bowl. Add chicken kidneys, chicken livers, rosemary, sage and
mix together. Place mixture inside the duck neck skin to form a sausage.
With kitchen twine, sew the ends together so that the meat doesn't
escape during cooking.

In a skillet heat butter and onions. Cook until the onions are
translucent. Add the sausage and cook very gently for 10 minutes. During
the cooking, add the chicken consume and hot pepper. Remove sausage and
set aside. In a bowl mix together egg yolk and lemon juice and add to
the skillet. Mix in very quickly and make sure it doesn't boil again or
the sauce will curdle.

To Serve: Divide the artichokes and place on the bottom of 6 serving
dishes. Cover with the potato and place a slice of sausage on top of it.
Sprinkle with sauce.

Yield: 6 servings

Default Need Yankee Boiled Peanut Recipe

Raw peanuts - These are not what are traditionally sold in stores as raw
peanuts. The boiled kind are "green" right out of the ground and haven't
had any kind of processing. The taste is green (weird description, I know)
and have a consistency of maybe a small piece of celery the same size as the
bean if you tasted one of them before cooking - not hard and crunchy. Hard
to describe . . . I fill about 1/4 of a 3 quart pot with them.
As much salt as you want. I use about 1/4 cup salt.
Boil for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours. Test for doneness.

Next time you make them you'll know how to adjust salt and timing to
something that you like

I don't think that green peanuts are available around here. I think
this is strictly a Southern thing. <sigh> And the peanuts didn't get
soft enough to eat without dentures. I probably won't make them
again.

If I were to make them again, I'd use 1 pound of peanuts and 2
tablespoons of salt.

It is... ;->

But green peanuts are available just about anywhere, via the WWW and
mail order.

==========

<snort> Yeah, I know.

Sooooo... do you remember how much I used to bit** about not being able to
get exactly what I wanted at the grocery stores up there? Well, it seems
that it wasn't limited to just Armpit...same sh** here, too! Progress and a
need to make a profit sucks sometimes! <shrug>

I'm sure I could get what I need down here but am a bit on the lazy/cheap
side and don't want to have to plan out everything and either drive to Tampa
or Orlando....

Okay. Rant over. Whew. I feel better now.


I suppose in all fairness I should play up some of the neat things that can
be had around he

I had fresh lychees last year! WOW!!! Totally cool! A guy from work
brought them in. His mom had a tree in her yard.

Last year and earlier this month a family from church was bringing in bags
of fresh starfruit...

One of the neighbors is growing bananas and pineapples... along with several
varieties of citrus (grapefruit, keylimes and something else).

Oh, and did I mention that I have the ceiling fans going because it's nearly
80 F. outside? It sucks... I miss shoveling snow and changing seasons!
Sounds ridiculous but is true...

Crap - I started ranting again, huh?
