Feed Us Back: Comments of the Week

Patty H. is lovingly concerned for those peeps in a jar:

Love it! Made me smile, but then, just as I clicked to leave the site, I thought “Oh no, I bet they can’t breath.” So, just wondering about maybe some holes in the lid.

We’ll make sure they’re safe. PS — an ES sneak preview — next week we’ll be featuring different ways to cook with peeps. Have any ideas? Send us your links.

– Hope everyone has made good use of our 100 ways to cook with sriracha post. Michael Birchenall of Foodservice Monthly checks in with a 101st recipe:

I had lunch recently at West End Bistro [in D.C.] and the only thing I liked was the Sangrita with Tequila at the start … I make this at home (he gave us a recipe that I adapted slightly). I did have to buy onion powder and Lawry’s seasoning salt as they weren’t in my spice cabinet til now

West End Bistro Sangrita (adjusted by MB)
4 oz. tomato juice (I use 5.5 oz can)
2 oz. orange juice (of course, all fresh squeezed)
1/2 oz. lime juice
1/2 oz. lemon juice
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp ground black pepper
1 tsp Lawry’s seasoning salt
1 TBSP brown sugar
1 TBSP sriracha
1 TBSP worcestershire (I use Henderson’s Relish that my son brings me from the UK)
mix (shake) in pint mason jar … refrigerate overnight, shake before using…serve in small glass with shot glass of tequila on side … sip of sangrita, sip of tequila to chase (I think a shot of each all at once would kill you)…my wife doesn’t like tequila … she drinks this as an aperitif

– Hell yes! And you ES-ers haven’t exhausted all the ways to cook with bananas yet either. Dan checks in with one more:

Carrot curry with bananas. The bananas sweeten the dish. http://www.haggisandherring.com/2011/04/carrot-curry.html

Yum! We’ll eat our bananas any way we can get them.

– Finally, dickn2000b has some criticism of our great vegetarian jerky-off:

To say that the title of this article was in bad taste would be as bad a pun as the title.

Thanks for your thoughts, dick. See you next week, ES-ers!

    but… if you put holes in the lid it completely negates the whole idea of preserving them…

    what i would like to see is a diagram of what meat is where on a peep, like this unicorn one: http://www.thinkgeek.com/caffeine/wacky-edibles/e5a7/images/7905/

    according to my mother “canned meat is delicious when you’re starving to death.”
