Pedro Jose Carias asked When making a Hispanic flan should I mix the ingredients in a blender or should I fold them?

I have heard that flan ingredients should not be over-mixed. I also hear a chef saying that instead of mixing them in a blender, they should be folded. So, I am not sure how it should be done.

And got the following answer:

Here are so me great recipes:

Flan

Flan is a traditional Mexican dessert & there are many versions. This one is prized for it’s simplicity. If you’ve never made flan before, now is the time to try it.

1 cup & 1/2 cup sugar
6 large eggs
1 14 ounce can sweetened condensed milk
2 13 ounce cans evaporated milk
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. You will need 6 ramekins or other specialty flan cook ware & a large baking pan to put them in.

Pour 1 cup sugar in warm pan over medium heat. Constantly stir sugar until is browns & becomes caramel. Quickly pour approximately 2-3 tablespoons of caramel in each ramekin, tilting it to swirl the caramel around the sides. Reheat caramel if it starts to harden.

In a mixer or with a whisk, blend the eggs together. Mix in the milks then slowly mix in the 1/2 cup of sugar, then the vanilla. Blend smooth after each ingredient is added.

Pour custard into caramel lined ramekins. Place ramekins in a large glass or ceramic baking dish & fill with about 1-2 inches of hot water. Bake for 45 minutes in the water bath & check with a knife just to the side of the center. If knife comes out clean, it’s ready.

Remove & let cool. Let each ramekin cool in refrigerator for 1 hour. Invert each ramekin onto a small plate, the caramel sauce will flow over the custard.

====================

Caramel-Glazed Flan

This is a reduced-fat version of this delicious Spanish origin dessert. I made it this way & my family did not notice the difference with the original fatty version. Good point!

3/4 cup white sugar
2 egg yolks
6 egg whites
1 3/4 cups water
1 (14 ounce) can low-fat sweetened condensed milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 pinch salt

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a heavy skillet over medium-low heat, cook & stir sugar until melted & light brown.

Carefully pour into a 9-inch round baking dish, tilting the dish to coat the bottom completely

In a medium bowl, beat egg yolks & egg whites. Stir in water, condensed milk, vanilla & salt until smooth. Pour into prepared dish. Line a roasting pan with a damp kitchen towel.

Place baking dish on towel, inside roasting pan, & place roasting pan on oven rack. Fill roasting pan with boiling water to reach halfway up the sides of the baking dish.

Bake in preheated oven 1 hour, until center is just set (still a bit jiggly). Remove dish to a wire rack to cool for one hour. Then refrigerate several hours or overnight.

To unmold, run a knife around the edge of the pan & invert onto a rimmed serving platter.

===================

Flan

1 ½ cups sugar
2 tablespoons water
½ lemon, juiced
2 cups heavy cream
1 cinnamon stick
1 vanilla bean, split & scraped
3 large eggs
2 large egg yolks
Pinch salt

To make the caramel: have ready a 2-quart round flan mold & a large roasting pan.

Combine 1 cup of the sugar & 2 tablespoons of water in a heavy-bottomed pot or pan.

Place over medium-high heat & cook until the sugar begins to melt. Swirl the pan over the heat until the syrup darkens to a medium amber color, about 10 minutes; don’t stir with a spoon. Remove from the heat & immediately add the lemon juice, swirl the pan again to combine, & then pour into the flan mold. Tilt the dish so that the caramel evenly coats the bottom & a bit up the sides, place in the roasting pan & set aside.

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, bring a kettle of water to a boil for the water bath & keep it hot.

Combine the cream, cinnamon, & vanilla in a small saucepan over medium-low flame.

Bring the cream to a brief simmer, stirring occasionally. Take care not to let the cream come to a full boil to prevent it from spilling over.

In a large bowl, cream together the whole eggs & yolks with the remaining 1/2 cup of sugar; add a pinch of salt. Whisk until the mixture is pale yellow & thick. Temper the egg mixture by gradually whisking in the hot cream mixture; don’t add it too quickly or the eggs will cook. Pass the mixture through a strainer into a large measuring cup to ensure that the flan will be perfectly smooth. Pour the custard into the caramel-coated mold.

To create the water bath: pour the hot (not boiling) water into the roasting pan to come halfway up the side of the mold; be careful not get water into the custard. Carefully transfer to the middle oven rack, & bake for 30 to 45 minutes, until the custard is barely set & just jiggles slightly. Let the flan cool in the water bath, then refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

When you are ready to serve, run a knife around the inside of the mold to loosen the flan. Place a dessert plate on top of the flan & invert to pop it out.

Nick asked How can i convince my parents to let me get a knife?

So i found a pretty cool 4 inch blade folding knife on amazon for like $10. The reviews are great.y parents hav said no in the past but i got them to say maybe just recently. They think that i might accedently hurt someone or myself and id be liable for accedents. Ill probably get them to say yes but i was just wondering if theyre are any tips tht will get them to say yes. Thx:)

And got the following answer:

You should write them a letter on why you really want it and the precautions you are going to take when you receive it. If they allow you to get it, you should allow them to give you a few at home chores to do. Its not bargaining them its showing them that you really want it. Dont let them down or the wont allow anymore weapons in their house.

Phat 445 asked How should I go about making a sheath knife?

I have decided that I want to make a sheath knife from raw materials as I think it would be fun and I would save alot of money while getting exactly what I want. What materials as far as steel and stuff should I use? I do have access to a grinding wheel. I want to start out with a long piece of steel and form alot of it into a blade but leaf a good sized flat piece as the handle which I will sandwich between two pieces of wood. The blade will hopefully look like this:

….————————-
…..\
…….\———————-

Though not quite as tall. Look up “tanto” blade if you want to see a picture. I would like for this knife to be able to be used lightly as a hatchet or to cut stuff like a normal knife so it will have to be really strong.

And got the following answer:

If you start with raw materials, you are going to need some iron ore, a really good furnace……
You are going to need a good piece of flat bar. Mild steel will be too soft to use as a hatchet, and will dull too fast as a knife. I suggest a mild stainless steel. Cut the rough shape with a band saw, and grind the rest. you are going to have to go slow, and keep a bucket of motor oil on hand to keep the steel cool. (a fire extinguisher is a good idea too). If the metal starts to turn pretty colors, you have been too aggressive, and gotten it too hot.
A real tanto blade would be made with a steel that is folded hundreds of times, (We call it Damascus Steel). That is ridiculously impractical for a guy with a grinding wheel. Get a machine shop to cut the rough shape if you do not have access to a metal cutting band saw. Cutting with a torch will spoil the temper, and grinding will take too long. Cutting on an iron worker, (a big hydraulic press), will deform the stock.

wiwiwiwiwi asked How do spring assisted folding knives work?

want to know how spring assisted knives work because i want one and i know they dont work the same as a switchblade and i mean how do i close it how i open it does it have safety locks etc

And got the following answer:

They are not switch blades because you apply force to a knob on the blade and open it 10% of the way then the coil spring takes over and helps the blade shoot out. I have a sog flash ii black tini tanto and it’s defiantly built to last, it’s legal to carry in texas because its under 3.5 inch and this one does have a side safety. It is a arc lock knife so there is a switch on the side that CLOSES the knife only. I like it better then linear lock because linear lock knives make you put your fingers inside the handle which unlocks the blade while your fingers are at risk of being cut lol, (*well im left handed). Check out Sog Assisted Opening knives. Auto knives are cool like I’ve been looking at a Sog tac Auto but Out the Front knives are more of switch blades in my opinion.

asked What is a good knife for self defense and practical applications?

I am looking for a good knife that would fulfill these roles but I am not sure on what to get. I live in Maryland, and I am looking for a knife that I can openly wear and use when I go on hunting trips and one that I can use to defend myself also. I am looking for a knife that is not serrated and preferably has a tanto blade. My price point is at the max $120. Any ideas?

And got the following answer:

NO!
DON’t GET AMERICANIZED TANTO POINTS!
I get it, they look cool. Technically, the point is stronger than other conventional blade types. But it’s a horrible cutter, and the tanto point gets in the way of slicing. And ask yourself, do you need to be stabbing into cinder blocks every day? If not, don’t go tanto.
So please, please, I beg of you, don’t get a tanto.
Here, I’m going to copy and paste my usual answer for you:
Spyderco Tenacious, Manix 2, Persistence, Resilience, Byrd line, Delica, Endura, Military (I especially recommend a spyderco- steel is good and the opening hole, although strange looking,functions great)
Kershaw Leek, Chive, Skyline, OD-2, Junk yard dog, damascus skyline
Kabar Dozier
Cold Steel Voyager, Spartan, Recon 1, Pocket Bushman
SOG flash, twitch
Ontario Rat 1
Benchmade 710, Griptillian, Mini Griptillian, Ritter Grip
Emerson Commander
Sanrenmu 710 (bargain priced chinese knife, good little thing for around $13. This is if you really don’t want to spend that much. Otherwise, ignore this.)

If he likes traditional style knives, look up Case knives. A stockman or whittler pattern is very useful, but these are in the range of 50-90 bucks. IMO, still worth it. (and they’re made in the US with great steel,too.)

If you’re going really cheap, look up rough rider folding knives. Will last quite a while, and the best knives I’ve seen come out of China. The difference between these and the American made ones are that the steel on the Americans’ hold an edge better, and will last longer.

Most of the knives I listed will seem a bit pricey. IMO, it’s worth it- I have to use my knife daily, and I all my suggestions are from experience (yes, I actually do spend that much on knives.)

PS: If you, by any chance, have a $300 budget, get him a Chris Reeve Sebenza. I know, you probably won’t drop that much money on a knife, but I’m just putting it out there that the Sebenza is classic perfection.
You’ve never mentioned if you wanted a folder or a fixed blade.
If you want a fixed blade,

Fixed blades: ESEE Izula. Small, compact, around 35 euros. Great bang for the buck, search the web for it. It’s crazy sharp, you can do custom paracord wrapped handles, look it up on google. The drawback is that its 1095 steel. While 1095 is very durable, keeps its edge for a long time, and can sharpen to a very fine edge, it is more prone to rust than any other steels. Don’t let this worry you, as long as you’re not using it near salt water environments, and remember to wipe the blade after use to make sure its dry.
KABAR BK2 and the BK9. Same steel, 1095. Keep it dry and keep it away from the ocean, it’ll be fine. The BK2 is an all-around camp knife, the BK9 is the chopper. Great blades, still doesn’t bust 80 euros.
Moras: Made in Sweden, dirt cheap. Around 8 Euros each. It’s no chinese crap, however, and don’t be fooled by their “innocent” look. They’re hard use knives, with good choice of designs and steels. Look on ebay, they have both carbon steels, and stainless. It’s always good to have an extra 1 or 2 on hand.
also take a peek at this site. I don’t know if they ship to Europe, though, so look on the net for other suppliers. : http://www.ragweedforge.com/SwedishKnife…
Ontario knives: Cannot go wrong. Look at the SP-10, it’s also carbon steel, but it’s got a protective black coating, and it’s 45 euros. If not, browse through their site. http://www.ontarioknife.com/catalog
You’re going to need a European distributor, though.
KABAR D2: Takes after the classic Marine’s knife, except in D2 steel. It’s semi stainless, so it rusts less easily. If you look up KABAR D2 Destruction test, you can see some guy hammering it through several pipes and cinder blocks before it breaks. I’m holding mine right now, it’s been through hell and back for the past 3 years. Pretty good. Expect around 100 euros.
Swamp Rat:. Research it yourself. They release a new knife every while and then, and the wait is wicked long. However, you can find some floating around ebay.
Busse: High quality stuff, you might not have enough money. As with swamp rat above, they are semi-custom producers and will have you waiting a long time. Try to snag one, though. I bought a Battle Mistress, my wife is PISSED.
Cold Steel: Alright, I’m a bit tired. I’ll leave you to do research yourself. Look for the SRK, the Recon Scout. Also see their line of San-mai steels. The SRK San mai 3 is good, but pricy. It’s got a good balance of rust resistance and edge retention. If you want a machete for clearing brush, look no further. Cold Steel ones are about 25 euros each and are the absolute best.The Recon Scout has my vote here. SK-5 steel has very good rust resistance. They use it in their lines.

Look at ESEE’s line again, http://www.eseeknives.com/index2.htm

MIKE asked How to convince my parents to let me get a folding knife?

I have a couple swiss army knifes and the tiny blade just doesn’t cut it. I want a larger serated folding knife but my parents won’t let me get one. what are some reasons for having a bigger knife. Or just how do I convince them.

And got the following answer:

Depending on how old you are, I would say to tell them that you’re a guy and that’s just the kind of things that you’re into. Because you’re a guy you just want cool weapons and tools etc. I am 15, my Dad was the only one who let me buy weapons and would buy me weapons at first. Now my mom doesn’t care as long as I keep them out of reach of my siblings. You could also try telling them that it could come in handy if you ever go camping and that all your friends have them and so on and so forth. Another thing you could do is offer to let your parents control when you have them out and are using them and such, offer to let them keep it in their closet or something. When I told my dad that it could come in handy when we go camping he offered to buy me a bowie knife. I instead chose to get a hiking knife so that I could carry it around. Just make sure that they understand you’ll be careful with them. It also would help quite a bit if you did something to show them how responsible you are.
