  1. So someone on line mentioned about dutch ovens on sale at CTC for great prices. It wasn't in the flyer but when I went online they have some great deals on Paderno cookware. Sure enough their 6.5 qt dutch oven regular price $339 is on sale for $99 and the 5 qt. is on as well for $80. Needless to say I phoned up my local store and had them hold one for me. https://www.canadiantire.ca/en/pdp/paderno-dutch-oven-red-6-5-qt-1423479p.html#srp On a side note, that store in CP is as of 6pm now going to be closed for anything but online ordering so you may want to check your store. Cheers
  2. Max usb current is .5A for USb2.0 giving a max 2.5W output. USB3 rises to 900mA max so 4.5W Cheers
  3. Actual recommendations are 2 tbs per quart. I used to use lemon juice but didn't care for the taste in my tomato sauce so I switched to citric acid. I/2 tsp per quart and zero flavour change.
  4. This bread is unlike any fresh bread you'll ever have, it's very dense and heavy. It doesn't have to be canned at all, any loaf pan, soup can or juice can can be used, for me it was more about trying something very different. The process is the same regardless, it's steamed in a water bath. Cheers
  5. I'm only talking about the Boston Brown bread here, it's actually intended to be steamed. All I know is what I made turned out great and it's a very unique flavour. I guess if someone was concerned it would be easy to freeze, whether in the jar still or removed and wrapped. I wouldn't be interested in trying other breads. Cheers
  6. Here's another option for home made bread. Ever heard of Boston Brown Bread? Traditionally it was made in coffee cans and it's steamed in a pot with water in it. Google it. So years back I found an alternative method of making it in 500ml straight sided canning jars. It turned out great and it keeps for a long time in the sealed jars. It's a very dense and heavy bread, a little goes a long way. Now according to the government of course they don't recommend canning breads etc but screw them, this is only bread and I've never even ever heard of an issue from canning this. I know I've opened jars that were still totally sealed after many months and it was still great. Don't over fill the jars or it will seep out as it expands. This is the recipe I use, I didn't add the vanilla and raisins as I don't want it too sweet. Make sure the jars are straight sided and as usual with canning don't over tighten the lids. http://canninggranny.blogspot.com/2012/01/canning-boston-brown-bread.html Cheers
  7. From what I heard Fishing Charter operators are now shut down too. Makes sense I guess as you get folks confined in a small area. So what next,. recreational fishing?
  8. Doug what kind of pot do you use? Does it have to be cast iron or ceramic coated? All I have is a 6 qt large heavy stainless pot that I use for soups and stews. Cheers
  9. I've always used a vpn for the last few years and would never be without one anymore. For $60 a year I can protect all my data on up to 5 devices, it's money well spent. All your data is encrypted and encapsulated so it's not visible to anyone. Plus you can change sources around the world to stream and access sites that you wouldn't otherwise be able to. Plus my provider keeps zero records so even if the authorities subpoenaed them they have zero data to offer. Cheers
  10. When you're on the site just right lick on the address bar, click copy and then paste on your post. https://niccomstore.com/ Cheers
  11. I always considered anything over 720P to be HD. Are you perhaps referring to UHD?
  12. This is the one I make, certainly not overly complicated at all. Can't find any in stores anyway. Already had all the ingredients on hand including an old bottle of glycerine that has been around for ages. The Better (Spray) Recipe Isopropyl alcohol 99% Glycerol or glycerin Hydrogen peroxide Distilled water Spray bottle Mix 12 fluid ounces of alcohol with 2 teaspoons of glycerol. Mix in 1 tablespoon of hydrogen peroxide, then 3 fluid ounces of distilled or boiled (then cooled) water. (If you're working with a lower-concentration solution of rubbing alcohol, use far less water; remember, at least ¾ of your final mixture has to be alcohol.) Load the solution into spray bottles Cheers
  13. I use no script and uBlock. Never see any ads at all ever. Blocking 4 with Noscript and 10 with uBlock atm. Stripe.com is one of them, no idea why it's on this site as it's used for online payment processing for business. Cheers
  14. I can't seem to find that. Do you have a link? Tks
  15. Now that looks good Spiel. A lot of folks don't realize how nice a stock you can get from the shrimp shells. I assume you simmered them after. After that the local pets sure do like those spent shells. Cheers
