Even meat eaters need extra B-12. I've been on an OTC formula for several years, along with a very low dose of iron, after the PMR diagnosis. They ran every blood test under the sun and while these deficiencies weren't the cause of the illness, they were recognized along the way.

Look out for B12 added to things such as soya/oat (etc.) "milks." Alternatively, don't be a vegan... Millions of acres of land on this planet can support animal husbandry but not arable farming, in highlands, on steep or rocky slopes or in areas with seasonal droughts or poor or unirrigated soils. Millions of children in developing countries can't afford fancy supplements to compensate for what they wouldn't get from a vegan diet, and without milk, for example, they would be in dire straits. Subsistence farmers in those countries can't afford expensive chemical fertilisers and rely on animal manure to keep their land in good heart and to feed their crops. Veganism must be a personal choice to be kept quiet about, free from evangelism. I know you weren't doing that. I'm just sayin'.

An interesting thought is that not a single human being has ever started life as a vegan.

On a more serious note, I heard that the only vitamin vegans struggle to obtain is B12, but I also noticed at my local supermarket that Violife add that to their vegan cheese slices, so I make a point of having one slice a day.

Still mostly pottages but also purchased the big 3 Christmas desserts on my last outing to the supermarket - cake, pudding, and mince pies...plus a bottle of sherry.

On TV, soups/stews are usually thickened with flour but for my pottages, rather, I like to add oats - the same oats that, for breakfast, I make porridge with, adding sugar and/or peanut butter, jam, sultanas, tofu...

(When visiting SE Asian countries, I enjoy rice porridge/congee for breakfast.)

After picking off all the meat I could, I crammed the goose wreckage into the Instant Pot along with the customary carrot, onion and celery. The result is about four and a half litres of dark stock with a wonderful aroma, and it's chilling in the fridge while I decide what should go into the first batch of goose soup.

Wild rice, I think, after the mirepoix, and chopped leg meat.

Any suggestions out there?

I can't think that you'd have got anyone better.

I'm one of those people who bought a large turkey before I knew that hardly anyone could come. It was a lovely turkey as it happens, moist and flavoursome, a free-range bronze job, and I cooked it well (never easy...). It's a challenge, but I've already got a hot turkey bap with stuffing and onions, a turkey and ham risotto and a sort of turkey cottage pie lined up. There may be sandwiches too...

The other day I bought 5 little $0.98 sandwiches in the freezer section of my local grocery that I was going to add to the "community fridge," a place where people in the neighborhood 4 miles north of me can go to find food when nothing else is available for purchase nearby - a "food desert." Then I realized that these sandwiches couldn't be added. The county health department insists that meat be shelf stable, not just cooked and frozen, because there are no guarantees on the fridge temperature. So I tried one of them tonight. The list of ingredients is intimidatingly long, I won't buy more, but I won't waste these. And to tonight's sandwich, a buffalo chicken breast meat patty and bun, I added mayonnaise, a few drops of my favorite hot sauce, and a couple of my homemade garlic dill spears. Not bad.

Next week I'll find some canned tuna and other shelf stable protein to add to the shelves next to the fridge at that location. I donate to the county food bank, but I also try to add food ingredients or quick to fix meals (soup cups that need just boiling water; cans that have pull-tab tops for homeless to be able to eat, etc.)

We have suddenly reached a critical state for millions on the US. While Trump fiddles millions starve. Literally. Benefits for several important food and unemployment programs ended today and tomorrow unless the bill is signed or congress acts quickly (if the bill is vetoed). If the bill isn't vetoed it will run out the clock and then it is too late for this congress to act. Trump is a cretin and I wish the COVID had done him in.

Well I prefer to wash any vegetables, including spuds, while they are still only minimally trimmed, as I have no desire to wash away nutrients and flavour, which is what you'd be doing if you washed them after all the chopping up. Less waterlogging my way, too.

I like the dark leafy tops. I used to clean leeks your way, Steve Shaw, but I find if I'm going to chop'm anyway, that they are a lot easier to clean if already chopped.

The goose liver, some white wine, and all the garlic that was inside my goose made a marvy spread.

When it comes to cleaning leeks, this is what I do. I don't want too much dark green top but I do want some of the fresher, brighter green stuff, so that's where I cut the leek. I then slice off the rooty bottom, only removing the minimum sliver required. Then there's the judgement of how many outer layers need to be discarded. One? Two? I have the same issue with shallots and onions... You can always chuck the outer, non-papery bits into the stock pot. To get any grit out of the top of the leek, I cut a deep cross down into it, then hold it, cut top up, under a stream of cold water, spreading out the cut segments. That does the trick.

Well the ham stock was ideal for making soup, not too salty, so all that soaking I did paid off. The ham is delicious too, so that's a double win. Before Christmas I bought a pack of big flat mushrooms, going cheap for 50p. I didn't want to waste them so about an hour ago I made them into soup, as follows:

In my cast iron casserole I fried some shallots and some chopped celery in olive oil. After about 15 minutes I crumbled up those mushrooms and threw them in. Once they'd reduced down a bit, I added about two pints of the ham stock and let it all simmer for five minutes. I carried the pot to the sink and whizzed it all to a rubbly broth with my stick blender. I put it back on the heat and added a pack of Merchant Gourmet pre-cooked Puy lentils (which are an excellent ingredient). After a few more minutes I decided to whizz the soup again. The texture was great for drinking out of a mug, thick and hearty but not too thick, and the seasoning just needed a quick tweak. It's delicious, and a big mug of that was all I needed for my lunch. There plenty for both of us tomorrow too. I've seen other mushroomy soup recipes that call for Worcestershire sauce (weird...) or cream, but I honestly thought that further embellishments were unnecessary. During the season of eating tons of rich stuff, something low-fat and nutritious like this is just what's called for, I reckon.

Chop it up and rinse the parts well, leeks can have a lot of grit. I put into a big bowl of water, swish, and remove from top of water, do not pour out. The grit will sink, the leeks float.
I recommend soup if you don't like the texture of some cooked veg. In broth, nothing is slimy.
But I would roast the chicken thighs...

Recently I bought a leek, and now I can't find the recipe that called for it.

What do I do with a leek? Cut it up and saute, like an onion? Or what?
It looks like a giant green onion, and cooked green onion turns slimey - I hate it.

I have eight chicken thighs to cook, so any suggestions for a chicken recipe that uses a leek would be appreciated.

Ah, well, Steve, your Christmas pud is a different class of article. That recipe I posted above is a Canadian confection of probably German origin, but also influenced by English and Scottish foodways — not to speak of what happens to a recipe that has passed through several generations (including the Great Depression and at least one world war) and lateral transfers from family to family.

As written, it consisted only of the list of ingredients and the instruction to steam it for three hours. I have made it at least a dozen times, with my own adjustments. The sauce recipe that came with it is a real Depression artifact — consisting of brown sugar, butter and boiling water thickened with cornstarch and jazzed up with vanilla, it’s familiar to many Canadians as a component of « pouding chômeur » (pogey pudding).

In the past I have made a four bird roast. I bone out a Capon (castrated male bird) take the breasts from two Ducks, 4 pheasants and 8 Quail.

This year I have decided to let the butcher do all the work. Not only is a bought one a whole lot cheaper I don't have to spend several hours buggering about. So the butchers 4 bird roast in Turkey Duck, Pheasant and Grouse.

I also bought a whole fillet of steak ............ the cost of that made my eyes water!! and have taken the tenderloin from the centre to roast.

Hmm. Mrs Steve makes the Christmas puds in September or October, and they don't live in the fridge either. We've even had year-old ones before now. No problemo!

I'm keeping it simple for Christmas Eve. I have a one-kilo lump of boned and rolled free-range unsmoked gammon. I've soaked it for 24 hours and will throw away the first boiling, in the hope of getting a stock that's not too salty for soup. It will go into my biggest pot, covered with water to which I'm adding a carrot, a stick of celery, an onion, parsley, thyme, a bay leaf and a few peppercorns. I can't understand people who ruin the ham (and the prospect of good stock) with horrid things such as coca-cola or cider. I reckon it will take about 90 minutes-ish. It will go nicely with some greens, mashed potato and my home-made parsley sauce, which I'll make while the greens are cooking and the ham is resting. There'll be plenty of cutting for the next few days of cold turkey (the bird, not the withdrawal from anything). Can't wait! Just off to get it going...

Today, I must -- absolutely must -- make the Christmas pudding, and the hard sauce. The butter has been on the kitchen bench since yesterday, so it should not be totally brick-like in texture.

Here's the pudding recipe. It comes from Lunenburg, Nova Scotia, courtesy of an old Army buddy, who got it from his ex-mother-in-law (a very military relationship). It's the only Christmas pud recipe I know that is not designed to feed the five thousand.

- 1 1/2 cups of flour
- 1 teaspoon of baking soda
- 1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons of "mixed spices" (I use allspice, nutmeg and a dash of cinnamon)
- 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt

- 1 cup of brown sugar
- 3/4 of a cup of chopped suet
- 1 cup of raisins
- 1 cup of currants
- 1 cup of grated carrot
- 1 cup of grated potato

Prepare a steamer -- I use a large water canner with a trivet in the bottom -- and grease a medium-large pudding basin. I use a large water canner with a trivet in the bottom, and a No 24 Mason Cash pudding basin, the size that's 19 cm (7 1/2 inches) in diameter at the top.

Blend the flour, baking soda, spices and salt in a large bowl. Add the rest of the ingredients in the order given and mix well. Work quickly, as the baking soda reaction begins on contact with the carrot and potato. Cover with foil or parchment and steam for 3 hours.

This pudding does not swell. The raw mixture is not a batter, but a sort of granular mess, and it solidifies and develops a cakey texture as it steams.

Let the pudding cool to room temperature and refrigerate it if you make it more than a day or so in advance. Reheat by steaming if you must, but I prefer the microwave. Turn it out into something fireproof, douse with warmed rum or brandy, and bring it to the table blazing. Serve with hard sauce (aka brandy butter), or hot lemon sauce.

Ok, my first goose, my first bûche. The goose was superb: scalded, dried, oiled, salted inside and out, cloves from 3 heads garlic inside plus dusting of smoked paprika, forgot to prick till after the first baking time, set on cabbage steaks. Bake 1.5 hours covered at 350F, baste and remove liquid, cover again bake 1 hour ditto, crank up to 425, roast 1/2 hour uncovered, remove all liquid and the garlic from the cavity, roast another 1/2 hour while making gravy with the garlic.

Oh yeah I forgot, roasted neck rest of insides, kept for soup. Fried the liver in butter separately and ran through food processor with the garlic before putting in gravy. Liquid for gravy was what was in the bottom of the separator from the goose and some white wine.

The skin was marvy, deep, deep brown, so crispety crunchety, amazing. The goose itself was yummy, juicy, wonderfully flavored. I have 1 wing, 1 thigh, and the main body left.

The bûche was toute une histoire, but not delicious. The cake itself was problematic from the start: the volume said 1 1/3c and the weight said 160g but the two were miles apart, requiring way more flour to make the weight [should I have weighed then sifted?]. However the frangelico cream was yum as was the ganache so hey. And I made marzipan mushrooms and snowed vanilla sugar on it and it was beautiful.

I have taken notes on the recipe I used. I will totally do it again. Meanwhile any advice for a better cake part?

This was fun!

True, Jos, but how to seal them? I'm not a home brewster, so I don't own a crown capper -- and, for cherry bounce, which is about 40 proof and has a strong flavour, I need re-sealable bottles. Furthermore, I doubt there's a single soft-drink company in southern Ontario that still uses glass bottles in sizes larger than 355 ml, which is the typical single serving in North America.

After a major rummage in the Glory Hole, I came up with three 750-ml swing-top bottles to supplement the three 500-ml beer bottles. They had been down there a while, and one of the beer bottles had been used for be-herbed vinegar, so I had to do some plain and fancy cleanage, but the six bottles turned out to be precisely enough. Note to file: buy a bottle brush.

But -- lesson learned. If I'm to continue making cordial, I must find a reliable source of bottles. I used to accumulate enough Grolsch (and similar) empties over a typical year, but this household's primary beer fancier is now tipping his pint in the afterlife.

Do you have any faceted 1/2 pint jelly jars? They won't pour much better but they'd look very pretty. You could screw on one of these when it comes time to pour.

Fish is in smoking. I hadn't cleaned the rack last time (my bad) and had to scour the shelves and drip pan first, but I gave the fish extra time to form that outer skin and it looks really good - I may make a note to try to wait 10-12 hours and not the usual 8 before starting smoking.
