Questions in this Episode

“Any advice on how to make a bell-pepper-free shakshuka?”

“We recently made blackberry jam. Removing the seeds was a nightmare! What is the easiest, least messiest, method of deseeding blackberries?”

“I have a whole hog butchered every year. I usually use the hocks in beans and the feet for rich stocks. The necks leave me flummoxed, as I can mostly only find recipes that involve sauerkraut. Any ideas on how to use these cuts that aren't the norm?”

“Do you have any tips on how to make the perfect macaroons?”
