Comment on Chinese Braised Pork Trotters (红烧猪蹄) by Teresa H. https://omnivorescookbook.com/hardcore-chinese-braised-pork-feet/#comment-219866 Mon, 30 Oct 2023 14:43:01 +0000 http://104.236.198.25/?p=1298#comment-219866 5 stars
hi Maggie, thank you for this recipe! I have been looking for one to recreate a comfort food from my childhood. One comment about the intro to your recipe – it mentions that trotters are a source of collagen and “healthy fats”. The fats from pigs feet are still saturated fat, so I would not call it a healthy fat. But agree they are an amazing source of natural collagen and a tasty and healthy part of a well balanced diet!

Comment on Duck de Marietta (The Best Slow Roast Duck) by Maggie Zhu https://omnivorescookbook.com/slow-roast-duck/#comment-219852 Mon, 30 Oct 2023 01:44:35 +0000 http://omnivorescookbook.com/?p=9682#comment-219852 In reply to Lynn Kimball Fay.

I actually don’t think lack of air circulation would be a problem since the ducks will shrink a lot during the cooking (due to the fat that is rendered out). If you put them on a different rack, I would rotate the duck once or twice (I used a V-rack in my recipe so I didn’t rotate the duck at all). For the temp, I would try 275 F and you probably want to keep an eye on the time. Since this recipe uses super low temp, it doesn’t matter too much if the cooking time is a bit off.

Comment on Lion’s Head Pork Meatballs (狮子头) by Maggie Zhu https://omnivorescookbook.com/lions-head-pork-meatballs/#comment-219850 Mon, 30 Oct 2023 01:29:42 +0000 http://omnivorescookbook.com/?p=7017#comment-219850 In reply to Karen.

I think you can, but the jicama might get very soft due to the long cooking time, therefore results in a very different texture. The chestnut will stay crunchy, so more of a contrast texture for the tender meatballs.

Comment on Chinese Pumpkin Cake (南瓜饼) by Cassandra Petersen https://omnivorescookbook.com/recipes/chinese-pumpkin-cake/#comment-219848 Mon, 30 Oct 2023 00:28:13 +0000 http://104.236.198.25/?p=3723#comment-219848 5 stars
This recipe was so good! I love the crisp and biting into pumpkin flavor. My family is debating on what to classify these as, definitely dessert but they don’t agree with them being called cakes. Donuts is slightly close with the fried dough. My brother said they are patties. Nothing quite fits for putting western classifications on it, they just are unique!

Wouldn’t jicama work as a sub for water chestnuts?

This is my absolute favorite way to prepare fish.This recipe really nailed it for me, I was inspired to buy green peppercorns; Mala Maket is a great find, for introducing us. I confess, just used the black cod fillets that were lingering in my freezer.

Add the green onion with the ginger and garlic. Sorry for the confusion! I just updated the recipe to reflect it.
