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