Grinder Storage and Transportation
I need some ideas and recommendations on ways to store and transport a #12 meat grinder.
I occasionally borrow this meat grinder from my in-laws. I disassemble and carry the throat, auger, knives, etc in a 5 gallon bucket and muscle the motor unit. Tricky to handle as it has no handle or easy way to pick up off of a flat surface.
I have read your posts about hauling your grinders to deer camp. I also assume that I am not the only one without a dedicated meat processing area.
Ideally, I would like to add handles for lifting and carrying and some sort of dust cover.
I would greatly appreciate any pics or advice. Thanks
RE: Cooking with cast iron
Jonathon We use chicken, beef, and ground beef. Chicken and beef were fresh. Ground beef was frozen less than 6 months. Same ground beef used over the last few months has been fine, so I doubt that could be it. We did use some frozen vegetables, but they were recently purchased as well.
Cooking with cast iron
I am looking for some knowledge and help.
Our family has hosted a soup cook every few years. The soup is a mock turtle soup…essentially vegetables, chicken, and beef. We cook in a 20 gallon cast iron kettle that we borrow. In the past I have noticed a faint cast iron flavor I the soup. This year the flavor is either much stronger, or I have a higher sensitivity. The soup has tomatoes paste and ketchup ingredients, so it is acidic.
Further research indicates that the kettle we use may need to be seasoned again. This is most likely the cause of the metallic flavor.
My question is does anyone have a recommendation on anything that can be done or added to decrease the metallic taste in the leftover soup?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
