    Anyone use a sous vide? Is there a noticeable improvement to taste and texture of meat?

    My only exposure to that was on the Chef vs Science show on Netflix.

    I decided to try making steamed egg custard. Never made it before so I watched about a dozen youtube videos of all different recipes and ways of doing it. I thought it would be smooth looking like all the videos, but mine is puffy! It puffed up to almost double in volume, and it's lumpy! All the videos showed silky smooth custards.

    It smells good, though. I'll go taste it in a few minutes.

    Here's what I did. I picked the simplest recipe.

    1 c milk, warmed
    3 tsp sugar
    3 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla (I meant to use 1/2 tsp, but the bottle slipped. I hate too much vanilla so I hope that didn't ruin it.)

    Set a pot of water to boil with the steam basket in it. I have the folding type basket with the loop thing in the middle so I had to put it upside down to hold the bowl.

    Warmed the milk while whisking the eggs and sugar.
    Strained the eggs into the milk, added vanilla and cinnamon, and whisked.
    Poured into ceramic bowl and placed into steam pot, covered, and turned temp down to a bit lower than medium.

    Set timer for 10 mins. At 10 mins, only the outer edges were cooked, about 40% of the bowl. Set timer for 8 mins more. Still not done in the middle, about 80% done. Set timer for 8 mins more and that did the trick. So 26 minutes total.

    Tastes good in spite of too much vanilla, smells good, texture beneath the surface is nice and smooth, the puffiness went down as it cooled and it's ugly, but not bad.

    Lesson learned: next time cover the bowl with plastic or some kind of lid as there was a little pool of water from the condensation in the steam pot. Also, a pinch of salt next time.

    GOP and Trump supporters will not be able to say they didn't know. Vote in numbers too big to manipulate.
