Checking Out Lamson Sharp Boning/Fillet Knife

No Comments 31 Aug 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Butcher Knife

Your boning knife is usually a long thin knife 5″ to 7″ , with a pointed tip similar to a fillet knife, most are flexible which is good when you are cutting around the bones.  I have this knife and the Japanese version which is called a Honesuki and it looks like a miniature Chef’s knife but these are really great when going around large cuts and large bones the blade is not as flexible but you can use pressure with this.

I will focus on the American made Lamson Sharp Boning/Fillet knife that is forged from a single piece of high carbon stainless steel from Solingen, Germany that has been tempered for strength and hardness.  The full tang blade features an oil rubbed triple riveted Rosewood handle, perfectly balanced and a little more weight to make your cutting a little easier.  There are quite a few styles of boning knivesLamsonSharp-6-Inch-Forged-FilletBoning-Knife-0-300x62 offered today, check out the feel and flex of the blade as well as the weight when you are looking.

No Comments 25 Aug 5:00 am Author: Randy Category:Healthcraft Cookware

This is for Chef Charles Knight author of his latest cookbook “Healthy Meat and Potatoes”.  I have always loved to cook but Charles opened my eyes to how easy cooking can be and yet everything tasting absolutely delicious, it really is a matte of cookware.

When using a waterless cookware such as Healthcraft you use less heat, much less time because the cookware is so evenly heating and in the majority of cases no added water, especially with vegetables.  Ideally fill the pan to the top put the heat on medium low and at one point the pans lid will form a vacuum seal from the steam vapor coming off the vegetables, the vegetables are literally cooking in their own juices.  With waterless cookwareHealth-Craft-7-piece-Waterless-Cookware-Set-Made-in-USA-0-300x300 you are retaining your nutrients and flavors, especially flavors now your food tastes like it is supposed to, in fact you may want to drop the salt, pepper and butter.
