That's awesome I want to try this. Seared in alcohol that would be a treat.
I really appreciate the safety tips. That's a great method to add unique flavor to a dish.
Lizzy - you are full of surprises! Stay clear of the flames. I would rather watch you prepare the meal and add this special flavor.
I agree about the rum cake. How interesting that it takes 2 1/2 hours to cook out all the alcohol. I really appreciate your thorough answer!
All rum cakes are not created equal. Some are actually basted in rum after they have been baked. Similarly, my own fruitcake recipe is only for those over 21 years old! It gets basted for a month! No dry fruitcake here! ;-)
I also agree about the Rum cake. A girlfriend of mine for my 22nd birthday made me one. She put far to much rum in it. It was really soggy and I didn't care to eat much of it. I had certainly felt its effects.
DzyMsLizzy, I also love fruit cake and rum cake soaked in liquor. There's nothing worse than dry cake! : )
Very interesting that the alcohol doesn't cook out completely. Thanks!
Thank you for that link. You're right. Even cooking for 2.5 hours leaves 5% alcohol. I have some friends who avoid alcohol completely, so this is a good statistic to know. I really appreciate it!
The serving size portion may make a difference, too. For a child who eats very little (some say like a bird) the amount of alcohol would likely be negligible.
Thank you for your very thorough answer. We've missed seeing you around!
That makes sense. Fondue isn't heated enough to evaporate the alcohol. Thank you.
Great answer! i hadn't considered the nitrate issue and you're right, a lot of people are sensitive to it. I think the advice of a pediatrician would definitely put my mind at ease. Thank you!
The pastor's on his own. He isn't getting my bourbon sweet potatoes.
