>>12714167 link to old thread

the good eggs have are very clear, but the brick has absorbed the salt which crystalized inside.

While the good eggs have texture of a cut away of a gelatin based candy like sugar coated jujubes, thebrick is more like a sour gummy worm consistency, and is about as transparent as an orange.
I think what I need to do now, is switch from salt, to sugar.

there is a major problem with doing that though, I won't be able to bake the moisture out of sugar.
however I already have a number of types, including oddballs, on hand, though I'm not sure I'll have enough containers.

as you can see the salt that was brown and horribly contaminated looking like old road salt, is now white
the taste is perfect, it's free of any impurities
no slight taste of iodine additives, no taste of anti-fungal or anti-clumping agents

this is by far the best tasting salt i've ever had, and all it cost me was 4 canadian dollars
there may still be contaminants left over in the brine so the quality will probably change as it climbs

sugar is a complicated thing melting point wise, but yeah as long as it's kept very low its possible, but if I make a single mistake I'll have a very sticky mess.
if I use the glass dish for example, it'll hold and build up heat regardless of the ambient temperature being the ovens minimum of 95c, and would likely bring it past

I have no way currently make use of solidified sugars, which is dumb of me because at one point I bought blocks of solid sugar.

>> No.12734064

The proportion of water that's in solid form as compared with vapor form changes with temperature. As the water in the sugar heats up, more of it goes to the vapor form. If this vapor can escape (i.e. gets blown away by a fan or something) then more water can evaporate until there is almost none left. This is a very commonly used method in many fields to determine moisture content, or just to remove moisture and purify a sample. https://www.carbolite-gero.com/applications/heating-applications/loss-on-drying-ignition/

boiling points can be changed a in a few different way, the most obvious cooking example is salting your water to get a rolling boil with lower heat.
but the one that most people forget about aside from chemists, and science nerds is pressure.
so as heat causes the trapped air to rise, that air must be replaced or it forms partial vacuum, which means on the surface of the sugar and underneath it, you have lowered the boiling point.
sugar and salt however are both very soluble, which is a problem as well as a blessing.
Salt isn't magic, the reason water boils quicker when salted, is it is not only able to retain more heat now that the salt is floating around in it, but because the water with it's salt, has a higher relative pressure than the atmosphere around it.

t. atmospheric simulation dev
also water can evaporate well below it's boiling point silly.

I don't even know if spoiler tags work on this board but I doubt it.

so the other big problem i'd be facing is, the melting point of sugar travels, expecially as it reacts with the air, as you might remember from the other thread I was explaining about how heat speeds up reactions.
the faster sugar is heated the lower it's melting point.
It can range from 120~ to 170~ which might seem pretty safe and easy, but, anything that absorbs and conducts heat, like the pan, can easily bring that ambient heat to higher than it is supposed to be via direct contact.
this also includes that which has a higher density than the sugar around it, such as, the wet sugar. It would likely result in large hard lumps or even pooling of a very sticky mess

Anon, there's dried salty egg yolks in moon cakes. I don't know how they are made.

>> No.12734316

The first time I did this I used a mixture of salt and sugar as the recipe called for. The second time I used straight salt so I could dry it out and re use the salt after. Didn't make a bit of difference in the end product except that the salt-sugar mixture wasn't good for much afterwards and had to be discarded.

>> No.12734324

a similar way
sometimes they ferment the entire egg and dig around the whites to get the yolk

nearly all the water has evaporated, aside from whats left under the paper.
the crystals are quite large, and I'll be taking the best of the stuff and putting it into it's own little shaker

still planning on doing some sugar stuff, but i'm also looking at using other hydroscopic ingredients.
one of which I'm trying to think of a good way to do it, honey. Honey has a 17% moisture content, but is hydroscopic as well as anti-septic.

while I was making my vanitato soup i set up the honey
I only used a head of honey incase anything goes wrong with this stuff, and I'll also be trying regular honey as well with just an increased amount of time.

I had the honey spread of evenly but it tries to pull the water in honey towards itself resulting in these circles

i was just more pissed that it broke off inside the soup and i had to find it
I don't Think I ate any bamboo but who fucking knows.
don't know what happened the spoon was fine before

the eggshell salt was actually too strong for it, I couldnt scrape into it , I wasn't able to blast into it with heat like I was able to with the bisque fired salt, so if I do it i'll need another bisque salt slab.

i'm not sure how possible it would be without some pretty legit setup though, my lasers pretty dangerous but it's a high power low grade laser
I need to get replacement mirrors and lenses for this thing, when I was cleaning and polishing it I noticed some pretty serious issues with the mirrors, they're all warping and fogging up.
you see when a reflection occurs, not all of the energy is reflected, and to make matters worse, the lens would reflect some of the laser itself back towards the mirrors a second time, doubling up on heat energy absorbed by the mirrors leading to the clouding.

people grate them on salads and stuff but i've found it's texture is similar to gelatin based candies so im planning to try some variants using sugar instead, thenthey'll be edible as a treat.
right now even tasting them is like trying to eat butter on it's own, it just dont make sense.

also some of mine are really fucking salty since they cracked and mixed in with salt so I'll also be doing a batch recreating those circumstances on purpose

im probably older than you

>> No.12737833

alright so the honey has thickened up considerably, it was fairly liquid honey in the first place mind you

I think over the course of today it should be able to get to the consistency I want

remember: the fan can only access the surface, so honey thickened this way needs to be disturbed now and then.

it's possible that these bottles i bought for 1 dollar were uncapped instead of capped (by the bees)
as I got them from a thrift food store.

would have bee-n like 6 dollars for the bottle otherwise, so i'm really just simulating what bees do with their wings.

>> No.12738380

Salting water for pasta has nothing to do with the boiling point in the first place. You need to salt the water because that's the only reasonable point to add salt to the pasta. More than a teaspoon when you're making the dough, and it'll end up crumbly. If you don't add it when you're boiling it, you end up with a mild sweetness left to your pasta that just doesn't serve well with most sauces.

But this thread isn't about the reasonable use of salt in cooking. We've gone far beyond what could even be considered the practical use of salt.

im not letting a flame anywhere close to sugar, it's one of the most efficient fuels possible. you can mix that shit with with a bit of potassium nitrate to make fireworks
but you did give me a good idea, I could probably keep the oven low, and then run it effectively lower by just having the door open

I don't see anything going wrong with that, provided you respect the oven's clearance of space

>> No.12739051

I recommend crystallising it first, DO NOT put a powdery substance in your oven. Specially not sugar.
Though the ventilation should prevent a dust explosion.
Big crystals will still dry up.
Do you not have a proper chemistry set? Use a crystallising dish, for God's sake.
Your wok should be fine and the same as one provided you use the Bunsen burner like an expert.

>> No.12739194

im 100% certain that using this sort of ventilation would actually make things worse for a dust explosion, since it otherwise would not be in the air.
sugar is crystallized and cut, too heavy to float in the air
but if I was doing it with icing sugar or self ground sugar, you'd be right though.

but either way i'm trying to avoid the oven for sugar itself, white sugar has a maximum moisture content of 0.04%.
I don't want it to melt into a sticky blob is all, that would be annoying. Also caramelizing would not be desirable, we're not making bitter toffee

Same reason I'm fan drying honey actually, though and it's got a moisture content of like 20%

ah, yeah, it's possible to do it that way but i've already mentioned I lack a grinde of any sort
and while heating is faster, it simply speeds up the evaporation.
it's also worth mentioning that I could also go the other direction and attempt to cool it in order to crystalize it
currently, its sitting at 29c ambient room temperature, between 5c and 17c are where you get honey crystals, which is a bit of a difficult temperature to keep in this environment

though my goal isn't really to make powdered honey or anything, it's simply to lower the moisture content to the point it will be able to absorb enough moisture from an egg to preserve it

I've also been worrying about a semi-obvious problem

the density of honey vs the density of yolk, means that if I don't figure it out, I'm going to need a very full container of honey, with a lid to hold it all under

but i'm also curious what will happen if I am unable to solve that potential issue, as theoretically the yolk would become denser as it's water content is absorbed into the localizing honey, making the honey more viscous.
so, theoretically, I'd be expecting it to either rip in half with a big pool on the top that thins out and eventually shatters, assuming it doesnt mix itself into the honey somehow
or become some odd tower of gummy worm consistency yolk

>> No.12740929

was doing a bit of a taste test and I think that salt and honey actually would go really well together
what I did was I took one of the larger crystals and stirred some of the smaller pools with it to see how much that would reduce the moisture content by, seemed to be a pretty extreme amount but as expected it did change the taste a bit, but didn't make it overly salty, just removed that slight bitterness honey has

tried with a piece of the crumbled salt egg too, was good until i got to the 90% salt center

I've also got this weird chinese corn syrup and honey blend which was a dollar with a greasy label, i just bought it to see how fucking bad it was and jesus christ it doesn't taste a damn thing like honey, or corn syrup, its just fucking bad

Why do so many anons on /ck/ pretend they know anything about science when they clearly don’t to someone who actually has a brain?
Adding ANY solute to water causes the freezing point to get lower and the boiling point to get higher, yes these are the opposite of each other and that’s because of vapor pressure. Adding salt to water does not lower the boiling point or make it “heat up faster”. Pasta is not supposed to be cook at a lower temperature than boiling water at 1 atmosphere. It’s meant to be cooked at a temperature higher than regular boiling water, which is exactly why salt is added. You can’t achieve hotter than boiling water without adding a solvent, e.g. salt, sugar, or pretty much any other polar substance.

Stop being niggers and fucking educate yourselves before you go spewing fake science and literal brain-numbing mush to a bunch of a brainlets who probably believe you because you have the fucking gall to use big words.

it's still fucking raining, pretty hard too, the lights are dimming at random

cant give much updates on most of them, but the honey one since its clear and
>continuously on top of the honey
does seem to be drying it to some extent.
you can see the remnants of the egg white has made almost like an icing
hard to see in the photos but the top layer is drying out, but exposed, so after taking this photo I drizzled some more honey on top which will mostly just run off but if I can get so me to just stay on top for honeys anti-bacterial properties it should be enough to keep it from spoiling though
i'll have to repeat this each day most likely, and it stands to reason that it will take longer in the honey with it's significantly higher moisture content compared to the sugars and salts.

are there any things you guys would like to see me cook over the next few days as we wait for the results?

>> No.12751437

If you filled a small glass with honey and the yolk, then put a plate on top and flip it upside down, it'd keep the yolk better submerged.

im not sure if you're right or wrong but I know it'd make a mess

depending on how well this performs I might try something a bit more controlled

my bigger worry with using something like a shotglass is that it would only allow the bottom to dehydrate, with the wetter honey sitting on top of the thicker honey. As it sits now I can kinda at least add thicker dryer honey to the top.

a permeable membrane would be the best bet but could be difficult with yolks, especially without special materials like dry aging bags
whole eggs have their own membranes though
if I later move to shelled eggs I'd certainly try and do a honey one, lowering a whole egg would be a simple matter in comparison
I think salted in shell could be very interesting if it works, but i'd also expect the weight of the salt to destroy the egg and I have absolutely no idea the amount of days it would take to do, as you'd have to rely on the egg itself transferring the liquid as it dries out.
I would think the white around the inside edge of the shell would solidify like a barely boiled egg and the yolk wouldn't get a chance to solidify at all through the white.
I'll have to do whole unshelled eggs before then, and might do partially shelled to make a comparison

>> No.12752720

Be sure there actually is enough acid in there. Look up what acid is in the tomatoes and then see how many molecules of that acid reacts with a molecule of calcium carbonate (the structural component in eggshells). From there, calculate how many moles of the acid you need to react with the number of moles of calcium carbonate in the shell, then try to get the concentration of the acid in the tomato juice so you can find the amount of juice necessary to dissolve the shell. Or you could skip all of that and add a more concentrated acid to the tomato juice since I doubt (but with no evidence, so it's just a hunch) that there's really enough acid in there to do the job.

I should mention, I left the 4 corners with slightly thicker tines

so this isn't really something super important if you're experienced, but I find it still does help a lot

mark with the back of your knife the center, and the ending of the tines and then 2 thirdsish towards towards the tines from the middle
you now know the right thickness to keep your filling as you throw it all over this slut.
this is actually meant to help rookies with their placements but I find it also helps with wetter fillings like apples or this pomato concoction

we're going to do some form of a braid.

for the first tines on the corners I pulled them all the way to the base as you can see, while with the other ones I'm only moving them to the top and meeting them as triangles

for the ends, this helps lift them up a bit and stay more closed, but doing it otherplaces will lead to less fluffiness as you are straining the dough more.

It would cook the dough before the water evaporated fully so you'd end up with it not rising. I think, I am probably wrong.

>> No.12768041

sadly it wasnt
the grainy vomit looking eggs tasted great but the potato skins I think were starting to oxidize too much or something, i'd done it before with fresh potatoes skin on.

laser heats only the direct surface so it might swell a little bit but nothing substantially interesting
even on low it wouldnt really cook, the laser is extremely limited as far as culinary use really goes.
those super thin tiny eggs that were cooked on only one side are a good example.

it's not really suited for heating a container or anything either, as most materials it would heat will, reflect.
rusted cast iron would be about the only thing but would require a lot more than 1 laser to initially heat

start with cold water, preferably filtered and sat in the fridge.
unfiltered and sat in the fridge is good too, as when you pour you'll be taking the higher up water rather than the deeper stuff where contaminants tend to settle

the quality of your water is easily the biggest factor

now something a lot of people don't do, and is actually i'd say, the second biggest factory in making good coffee, thats right, more important than the coffee itself

using that good water, wash your filter, you simply pour water to it and let it leave through into the sink
you can do a better job of this with hot water, which is beneficial for the paper ones, but the bamboo ones are fairly neutral comparatively.

doing this will also wet the filter allowing me to easily roll it

your choice of coffee is going to affect your flavour profile more than the quality of the coffee, but it's still important

you don't need to settle for just dumping it in, you can mix them and the way you mix them will affect how they taste.

on some brands they have a guide to the flavour profile, some brands use 4 or 5 bars listing its various qualities and flavour notes, others use a single bar for 'intensity'
comparing between brands its of limited use, but for the same brand its a bit more reliable.
you might notice 4 of the coffee bags are made by 'lavazza'

generally a dark roast will be more bitter and more 'intense' by some scales like this one, but this is is the same rating as their dark roast.
completely different taste, as they're completely different beans, arabica vs classico
classico is generally a blend of arabico and robusta
I find arabica has great flavour as long as it's not dark roasted, turkish aside, as they usually use a higher quality arabica for turkish that holds up well to the roast, or they're just more careful i'm not sure.
the gold bagged arabica on the far right is a 5/10 intensity rating, it's smooth and fantastic, while the white bags a different brand and lists itself as a 7, i'd say the two are very similar

a good coffee is a real treat and even improperly stored coffee can last a very long time

if you have a selection, it helps you from getting bored of your coffee, as what you consider 'a treat' will change the more you drink certain things, sometimes you want something a little bitter, sometimes a little mellower, sometimes your stomach just won't take the abuse of using more acidic stuff that tastes the same as the expensive stuff

also you might notice something I don't keep, I don't like those gimmicky coffees like 'hazelnut coffee' and stuff they're just bad, you can add flavourings after or gradually just they're gross when they've been treated with extracts that all just pour right into your coffee in barely controlled amounts.

oh yeah I went on a tangent, I'll shake the grounds about in the wet filter, they'll stick to the sides and most will sit on the bottom.

doing this does two things, 1, it helps prevent unflavoured run off which does nothing but water your coffee down, and allows you add a flavour you would otherwise have to blend in with the rest of your mix.
sometimes i'll do this with hot chocolate powder for pour overs
you can experiment with this a lot, just don't try salt

one thing that I know nobody here does, is warming your cup.
a warm cup will make a surprisingly large difference, as a cold cup will suck away most of the heat.
you can warm up both the inside and outside with hot tap water but i'd recommend to make sure you get rid of all water on the inside with a paper towel as hot water usually tastes terrible from the tap, and if it was not already running, can actually be quite bad for you (I can get into that a bit later if you like)

the spout isnt quite center on the filter in this machine but thats fine it was 5 dollars.
but if you manipulate your spout just a little bit after the initial pour, it'll stir the water around a bit more evenly utilizing the beans rather than extracting from a specific channel in the grounds.

She used to swear by that nasty flavoured coffee and I told her it was just an excuse to dress up cheap coffee and sell it to gullible people at a higher cost. Some time back she went and picked up a "hazelnut roast" on a whim and she said it was completely undrinkable. Amazing what getting used to quality can do to your sense of taste.

She still uses meme creamers sometimes, though. Especially when she wants that sweet, sweet hazelnut.

oh, you can re-use the salt quite easily
most of last thread had nothing to do with the eggs, just the re-processing of my insanely cheap sifto salt into a high grade salt

the eggs have a lot of different uses supposedly but I found they just aren't that good on their own to justify it
one of the main ones people use it for seems to be as a dairy free replacement for parmesan cheese, which is silly in my opinion, as the amount used would never trigger a reaction for someone, and can't claim to be vegan either, so maybe it's legitimate for hindu folk? I dont know.
I haven't tried it on ice cream yet but thats another use, it still emulsifies and sorta melts

they're very easy to make but finding uses is sort of--- actually im eating pasta right now hold on.
okay fuck it's amazing, I just took one of my paring knives and shaved about half of one of the good ones all over it, really does kick it up.
it's similar to fresh parm this way

either way though my disappointment with it turned me into trying multiple types of sugars, which will hopefully make some sort of an egg based gelatin candy.
but now that i've realized it's terrible on it's own but great as an accent flavour I'll have to revisit my idea of making a 'bar' that I spent a large amount of last through doing.
