Food and drink

Yesterday, we started the first beer-kit. It was a lot of hassle, this being our first time, and we had a slight equipment malfunction as well. But now we have an air-tight plastic bucket with 15 liters of brown stuff in the bathroom. You can hear the water-lock bubble quite a bit, so something is changing the sugars into alcohol -- let's hope it's the yeast that was in the kit, and not some infection due to insufficient cleaning. We'll find out in two months time, I guess.

Also, we used the slow cooker to create creamy caramel sauce out of a can of condensed milk with sugar. Three hours is not quite long enough, but we're getting there.
Right now I'm stewing Stifado, a Greek dish. The drawback of using the slowcooker is that you're cooking early in the morning. I was peeling shallots and dicing beef before having breakfast...
There are lots of exciting recipes for the slowcooker to be found, though. I find it fits with my style of cooking as well. And I love stews!
