too legit to quit
When I moved to the states from England, I had to relearn many cooking terms. As Rebecca says we don't call these pots, Dutch ovens. What the English call a grill is a broiler in America. An American grill is a barbecue. American chips are English crisps and English chips are American French fries.
EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT, EXCELLENT!!! Love it , love you!🥰
I associate a Dutch oven with having spikey points on the inside of the lid so that steam drops back onto what is cooking and keeps it moist. I don't know if that is factual or not. I used one for the first time a year or so back to make pulled pork for a large gathering that we hosted. They do seem to be trending recently. Good luck with your testing!
Such a great post!
I love our variations of terminology. In UK we call a Dutch oven a ‘casserole’, or ‘casserole dish’. We use them to make - among other things - casserole, which over here is just another word for stew!
Dutch ovens can produce magical desserts. I know them from camping where we would make dump cakes.
I love, love, love my Dutch Oven and am making a chunky potato soup in it as I write this comment! Here's a recipe very like what I'm making but my variation is that I add a smidge of ground mustard and some chopped parsley and garlic to this recipe. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/hearty-potato-soup/
This was so timely Amie! I don't have a dutch oven either but keeping going back and forth on the idea of purchasing one. Thank you for sharing yours and the recipe.
I use my Dutch oven mostly in the cooler months for soups and chilis. And occasionally to bake bread. Thanks for sharing the PDF of your mom’s newsletter - what an interesting read!
