Updates to previous entries, Mar 4, 2013

I’m trying a new feature, inspired by kottke.org, where I announce updates to old posts.

Avocado vegetable soup servingAvocado as a smoothie/soup ingredient: You can reduce the introduction of air bubbles by blending everything except avocado first. Then add avocado and blend briefly (~5 sec). The avocado is so soft that it does not need to be blended for very long, and a shorter blend time will introduce less air. You can of course use the air bubble removal trick, but I often make cold avocado soups pretty thick, which makes it harder to get rid of the air bubbles.

Cilantro and LemonCilantro: Storage tip: keep cilantro bunch in a jar or cup with about an inch of water in it, similar to how you’d keep flowers in a vase. Put a produce plastic bag over it (loose is fine) and store it in the fridge. You can change the water occasionally and trim the bottoms of the stalks when you take it out. It will keep for a couple of weeks, compared to possibly less than a week if it’s just left loose in the fridge. It will slowly lose its aroma, but I’ve been impressed with how long it lasts.
