Sometimes this works ... and sometimes not :(
Take my cornish game hens that I deep fried last night ~
The recipe said EXACTLY 15 minutes in the fryer ... not a minute less, not a minute more.
B E A U T I F U L
It was crispy skinned,
the meat was so tender and juicy.
Delicious with a capital D.
In goes the second hen ...
I'm setting the table ...
mashing potatoes and making a gravy.
I'm watching the clock.
I think I'll grab my camera and maybe post about this tomorrow. Okay, keep an eye on the clock I have 10 more minutes of frying time. I'm outside on my deck using my turkey fryer to make these birds. I go into the house to finish up setting the table. I tell Dear Hubby, let's dig in and start eating. We'll share the first bird; because I don't intend on eating a whole cornish hen myself and he doesn't need it either. Dear Hubby asks why I'm cooking the second bird in the first place. I proceed to tell him that I plan on it for lunch tomorrow. We'll be out in the woods making firewood, and it'll be a quick meal for lunch time.
Dang... I look outside and the fryer seems to be smoking. I look at the clock ... Double Dang ... it's now been 17 minutes. Two whole minutes over the EXACTLY 15 minute time period. Oh what can 2 minutes extra really do?
It was not only burnt ... it was absolutely disgusting.
The burn flavor was all the way through the meat.
It really was inedible.
Yuck with a capital Y.
So what's for lunch today???
Until next time ...
So it goes in my neck of the woods.
