Yeah some can be sweeter. Depends on how much sugar they add. But when you do a salty-sweet dessert, peanut butter is usually the salty part, not the sweet part.

quote:

It's the same with the peanut butter chile. The guy's recipe called for chocolate, which would add a bitter-sweet taste. He had no chocolate so he added peanut butter, an umami-salty taste. it's the opposite of bittersweet chocolate. He created the opposite flavor of what was intended by adding the chocolate. There is a reason the chile recipe calls for chocolate, just like there's a reason the cake recipe calls for sugar; it adds a certain layer of flavor that compliments the other flavors.

Here's my point, why does it bother you so much what he adds? If it goes against culinary science, and tastes like shit, so be it. I think most people can understand the difference in flavor between chocolate and peanut butter, and can deduce that one can't always be substituted for the other if they have any experience at all in cooking, yet we don't feel the need to call someone else stupid for having a different opinion, or trying something, even if it doesn't work.

quote:

So yes, picking the exact opposite flavor of what is called for in a recipe is stupid. You don't substitute one cup of salt for one cup of sugar.

Huh, learn something new everyday.

I once saw a guy from "Down da bayou" put coffee into his gumbo


I regularly put Community Dark Roast leftovers into my gumbo if there's any left in the pot. Gives it a little smokey flavor. Idk about peanut butter in a roux, but I reacted the same way when someone told me to dredge my speckled trout in yellow mustard and the first time someone offered me a bite of a peanut butter burger at Yo Mama's. Both of those worked out pretty good.

I didn't know there was another mysterious piggy. Who is it? Btw, I'm not very mysterious.

Oh, really. And who decides what ideas are stupid? You?

Not at all, I'm one of many in this thread pointing out the silliness of the OP. In fact, it's not even that he added peanut butter to his roux, it's that he has no idea why one might do this, and he can't tell us if it made his gumbo better.
quote:

If I enjoyed this kind of ridiculous posturing, I would stay in the OT.
Ironic, because posts like the OP are turning this board into the OT.

quote:

I am certainly not a chef nor an expert in haute cuisine, but I enjoy this board to learn from others who have more experience than I.
RIght, me too. What did you learn from the OP?

quote:

I'm not mocking someone for trying something new, that's how progress is made. I'm mocking someone for doing something for no apparent reason, with no apparent effect, and coming on here and "sharing" it, like it's somehow going to be useful to the rest of us. I like this board too, I post here far more than any other board. We can have different opinions and different tastes, that's great and that's healthy, but valid criticism helps to filter out the noise and help maintain this as a place to share good info about food and drinks. Can't you see I'm being an a-hole so you don't have to?

I don't know. I just remember at one point both of you were posting in the same thread and I had never seen either of you before then. I'll see if I can find it.

re: Alright folks.. here is the peanut butter roux gumbo (with PICS)


I'd much rather maintain my integrity as a person than about food, but that's me. People can listen to me or not. I joke a lot about my gumbo preferences, but I like learning and I like helping someone who is new to cooking, cooking a certain dish I might know about or restaurants or whatever, if I can. I enjoy cooking and restaurants and talking about both. It's a hobby.

I do not get a thrill from acting like I'm better than anyone else or shooting people down in a rude and ugly manner for their ideas. No one learns anything from someone who talks to him or her like he or she is an idiot. That, of course, doesn't maintain the credibility or integrity of anything. It makes the person doing the shooting look like a total jerk and it sends people away or results in continued lurking. In case anyone missed it, I'm pointing out the inherent stupidity (and hipocrisy) of what is ultimately a stupid way to deal with folks (and a ridiculous statement) who come to a food and drink forum, ask a question or make a comment and get shot to hell and back by a "pompass" person.

You have a question about why a person did something you find odd, ask it but mocking them off the bat doesn't get the answer. Anyone with 1/16th of a brain knows that.

Some of you hold yourselves in high esteem, but it's not how you hold yourselves that matters. It's how other folks see you that matters.

So, in summary, Arkla, I agree with you.

I skip posts from certain folks all the time who think they know it all. Whether they do or don't doesn't matter, they have no credibility or integrity with me.

Gris Gris, if you go around worrying how others see you you're in for a rough ride.

Secondly, lighten up. It's an Internet forum where some guy put peanut butter in roux. Some like it, some think its stupid, and nobody understands it. Big deal. Just skip posts that ask why he would do that or others that think it's silly and you'll get through your day just fine.

Oh the irony. Still waiting for your reasoning chef, or maybe your original post was just your attempt to be an attention whore.

You should make some chili and throw a couple of Reese's into it and report back.

The last thing my fat arse needs is more Reese's cups

This woman at work is always trying to bring me them to brown nose for some odd reason

And the DQ Reese's Blizzards...well that's the worst of my guilty pleasures
