Wine enthusiast nomads... How do you store your opened bottles of red and white? (in your belly is not the appropriate answer here)
hidden for non-members2mo
I've honestly never seen anyone insert a plastic bag, then cork, to reduce the oxygen in the bottle and I'm thinking that's an excellent way for us to keep, without a pump
hidden for non-members2mo
Do they sell silicone balloons? ๐Ÿค”
hidden for non-members2mo
... the answer is no. Should I make one specific for wine?
hidden for non-members2mo
OK, so plastic bags from grocery stores are HDPE, which has a moderate gas permeability, but lower than other common plastics, and is super thin. I'm going to experiment and try to see if there's an easy way to have that fill the air volume of a bottle, and if it effects taste. First experiment was not so hot, it's difficult to fill, but corks fine
hidden for non-members2mo
icyifxwevlbw dicldn puvodqtjcllzig />
For science? ๐Ÿ˜„
hidden for non-members2mo
I discovered a plastic pen is far superior than take out chinese chopsticks, but I think quality smooth corner chopsticks are going to be the winners here to push the bag in
hidden for non-members2mo
FYI, HDPE also takes little or no damage from ethanol, so no worries of it breaking down that way
hidden for non-members2mo
I'm starting to think the biggest struggle with this "One Trick Wine Gas Exchange Companies Don't Want You To Know" thing is, not poking a hole in the bag while stuffing it in the bottle
hidden for non-members2mo
jsqheheycwrbak you keep it in a fridge?
hidden for non-members2mo
(but then there's an extra step of slowly warming up the wine in a bowl of water)
hidden for non-members2mo
mkzmzwgstyyivm you could pour the wine into a smaller container
hidden for non-members2mo
and then cover that
hidden for non-members2mo
less oxygen left over
hidden for non-members2mo
Smaller container seems like a better choice than shoving s bag in a hole. There is one wine preservation kit that is basically a plastic disc that floats on top of the wine. It fits perfectly in the decanter, allows you to still pour, but covers all exposed wine to avoid it turning. Bit realistically, without a way to vacuum seal it you just get 1-2 days after opening. It's one reason I generally buy splits or boxes.
hidden for non-members2mo
sxqiwk yyzhpwpyxrtfyz haha nonono. You can make kimchi in 3-5 days

nwkmuxdvjjgxim You can also use a blender on the wine to increase the taste (because it gets mixed with air, not something you would use for good wine, but for cheap one works great)
hidden for non-members2mo
The same idea as putting it in decanter, you allow it to mix with air to increase the taste of it. But if you have cheap wine or don't have time to wait can use an immersion blender (or something similar) to make that process faster. Tested and approved from when I used to drink wine.

New fav lazy evening meal - curried tempeh salad

Yum. I honestly can't recall the last time I had tempeh

I find tempeh so much easier to cook quickly than tofu

For tofu u have to drain, press, then either bake or pan fry

Or steam

crtxoollhhjpfq I also prefer tempeh to tofu in my salads. Tofu can be good for marinating, but it cooks terribly - usually getting all crumbly - and doesn't develop a nice crunchy exterior. I like pan frying with some sriracha :heart_eyes:. Weirdly - Vietnam seems to be the only place in SEA so far where tempeh is hard to find unlike somewhere like Indonesia and Malaysia where it is cheap as dirt and everywhere.
hidden for non-members1mo
IMO tempeh is the best meat alternative. Good protein, satiety and denseness. More places need to do tempeh burgers

ljbvfxpyn unripe jackfruit cooked in a certain way is possibly one of the best meat alternatives i've encountered.. texture-wise. basically i had this in the Philippines, called Langka Ensalada.. www.panlasangpinoyrecipes.com/langka-ensalada-recipe/
hidden for non-members1mo
At one point I was renting a house in the Philippines and there was a jack fruit tree in the backyard.. I let the neighbour take some, in return I got some amazing langka ensalada.. that particular version *definitely* tasted like meat, I was convinced I had found the perfect meat alternative.. but later it occurred to me she might've cooked it in something animal-based to get the flavor
hidden for non-members1mo
lmewvbbqv yea jackfruit is really catching on. I haven't had much of it other than a pulled pork burger in Canggu. I also had a really good tempeh burger in Canggu
