Thanks Randall. Roasting the pork neck bones as I type. It's a two and a half day process for each batch. And, a major pain in the lower alimentary canal. But, come this winter, when I'm making soups, stews, and chillis, it will be worth it to have something homemade, versus watered down crap off the shelf.

Chris, Cary and I love Sambal. Had a garden vegetable stir fry last night with Sambal and it was delicious. Just enough heat and flavor to accent my sauce.

I envy anybody that cans. Stay cool doing it.

With Labor Day weekend approaching here in the US, time to once again break out the pressure canner/cooker and stock up on homemade stock (chicken and pork [and admittedly a bad pun]) for the coming winter. If my calculations are correct, I should get 36 pints of each canned and put up before Monday.

Thanks, Chris. Sambal sounds spicy hot!

I still haven't made my own ginger-snap-cookies, but a few days ago I planted a ginger root in a very large container, so if it multiplies, that will be an incentive to make some, as well as trying it in other foods like you guys do.

I use garlic in just about everything, as well.  Garlic powder gets sprinkled onto grilled cheese sandwiches and also added to my mayonnaise mixture when I make tuna salad.

When recipes call for cloves of garlic, I usually double the quantity.  

However, I have to be careful with how much garlic I consume before work.  Second-hand garlic smell doesn't go over very well inside a pressurized aluminum tube filled with people in close quarters at 35,000 feet.  lol

I use garlic in just about everything (home grown). Plus, I either sprinkle ginger on food and/or take a ginger pill supplement. It's supposed to be a digestive aid, and I believe it. I really don't know what sambal is (google time).

It is! My husband wants to be healthy, but when it comes to eating vegetables he often balks. A spoonful of sambal or ginger/garlic helps a lot...
