There is a difference in flavor. That's because the water goes through again and again until it is done. Walmart has these at $39.95 but I bought mine at a consignment shop for $20.00. I also enjoy not having to use paper filters. This way you have no collapsed paper filters ever, and no full of water coffee basket. LOL

Mike the percolator makes me nostalgic. I havent seen one in years. I enjoy the sound and process, and it fills the room with aroma. Do you notice a difference in flavor?

I had a Mr. Coffee drip type machine and got convinved to go back to a perculator. Stainless steel and does a much better job in about the same time. Drip machines have the water go through once. A perculator sends the water thrugh again and again.

Make your own coffee maker from concrete, a glass funnel, and legos.  This is too cool.

Fall is on its way! I'm looking forward to more baking again.

Ordered some San Fancisco sourdough starter. I know I could start my own, but this seems like a reasonable way to start.

I have squash and pumpkins to roast and bake and cook.

Need tocome up with something new I haven't cooked before. Maybe it's finally time to learn tamales?

Time to make a batch of sauerkraut again.

Enjoyed reading the salmon comments. My canned salmon casserole turned out pretty good--a bit salty, however, as Michael said. I'll get 4 servings out of it.

Randall, I buy canned salmon myself, and make salmon patties. I grew up just west of you over the state line in Kankakee. When I grew up it was a predominately Catholic community. Friday's were usually one of 4 things. Tuna casserole with egg noodles and cream of mushroom soup (blechh!). Fish sticks with fried potatoes. Grilled cheese sandwiches and tomato soup. Or, salmon patties and creamed peas. Take your choice. Oh before I always like the salmon patty dinner. Still do. Brings back memories from childhood.

Farmed prawns or shrimp are grown in fresh water and fed some kind of pellets and as a result have a less appetizing consistency and are relatively flavorless compared to wild caught ones. In my experience no farmed fish has the same quality as wild caught, and I never buy it, even though it's usually cheaper.

It's been years since I've purchased a can of salmon, but I distinctly recall having to pick out bones before preparing it for an appetizer dish.  Perhaps there are different quality grades for canned salmon?  I just don't know.  

Another thing I don't know anything about is possible differences between wild-caught and farm-raised foods, salmon or otherwise.  Right now, my opinion is that I'm in favor of farm-raised foods produced in a scientifically responsible and healthy manner if it helps alleviate the strain on wild species.

How about those shelf-stable pouches of salmon, also supposedly wild-caught? I enjoy the convenience of not having to drain them, or remove skin and bones; it's ready to add a little mayonnaise, dill, capers, whatever for salmon salad.
