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.

I'm hoping with you, Randall, but I don't trust the fish industry - smells fishy to me.

Comment by Michael Penn on August 27, 2015 at 7:27am

Go for the packaged one, Randall. It's likely flash frozen where the canned variety will have things in it that you do not want. The very act of canning anything increases sodium, but that may work to your advantage in home canning.

I bought a package and a can of salmon the other day-- 10 dollars worth at Aldi. I know it's supposed to be good for me, especially "wild-caught" (which is claimed on the package). However, I have mixed feelings about the depletion of ocean fish resources. I'm hoping and assuming salmon fishing is regulated to the extent that it isn't being overfished.

Thank you, Chris. 

My current batch of dehydrated tomatoes seem to be drying out properly.

I didn't know what Dutch drop was either.  I found out through Google.

Comment by Plinius on August 23, 2015 at 7:59am

´Drop` is the Dutch word for salty liquorice. It's very different from the sweet liquorice you find elsewhere, but you'd probably hate it. 

Comment by Randall Smith on August 23, 2015 at 7:20am

What's a "Dutch drop"? Seriously. I don't know.

On my third batch of dehydrating tomatoes, about half of them turned moldy within 24 hours of processing. That's a first. So I washed and bleached all the trays and will try again today. Weird.

Comment by Plinius on August 22, 2015 at 2:42am

Yes, that is real drop!
