Another Random Search

Edit: I got schooled. “Sweating” is a cooking technique and according to Wikipedia, is the gentle heating of coarsely cut vegetables in a little oil or butter, with frequent stirring and turning to insure that any emitted liquid will evaporate. Sweating usually results in tender, sometimes translucent, pieces. Sweating is often a preliminary to further cooking in liquid; onions, in particular, are often sweated before including in a stew. This differs from sautéing in that sweating is done over a much lower heat, sometimes with salt added to help draw moisture away, and making sure that little or no browning takes place. I owe an apology to the person who searched that.

Another random search hit Siuyeh tonight. What is this? Can someone fill me in? Sounds delicious.

  2. Food trivia alert! I think “sweating” actually is a cooking technique. To wit:

    “Sweating in cooking is the gentle heating of coarsely cut vegetables in a little oil or butter, with frequent stirring and turning to insure that any emitted liquid will evaporate. Sweating usually results in tender, sometimes translucent, pieces.”

    i think you should do a post with an ACTUAL “sweating eggplant experiment.” it may sound gross, but it might end up being delicious.

  3. Damn. I got schooled. I shall rectify this … one day :)

  4. Because I had blogged about a certain burger in town, for a while I started getting hits from people typing in search strings like “gang bang”… I’m sure those people were really disappointed when they saw my blog…
