Goat meat terminology

We sometimes use different terms for goat meat depending on the age of the animal. For example, cabrito is meat from young goats aged 4 – 8 weeks, while chevreau or chevon meat comes from 6 – 9 month old animals. The term kid, or the Italian capretto, is also used generically to mean any kind of baby goat meat. Finally, you may also come across references to mutton, adult goat meat.

Cuts of meat and recipes

It’s worth trying different way of cooking with goat meat to see what works for you and your family’s palette. The tenderness of your cut will dictate what type of cooking method you should use, but get creative and see what tasty results you can produce.

  • Shoulder meat, neck cuts and steaks are great when cubed in stews or curries, as is common in the West Indies. Bring out a delicious flavour by mixing in garlic, cinnamon and other spices.
  • Breast meat works well stuffed and roasted -experiment with nuts, dried fruit and herbs.
  • Ground meat can be used in Mexican-style meals such as tacos with chilli and coriander, in burgers, and as a spread on breads and crackers.
  • Belly meat can be turned into sizzling sausages, which

When our first tank of water in the motor home was expended, we refilled it from the RV resort where we had spent the night. Then we found we disliked the taste of the water even when used for coffee or tea! Before that moment, we had not realized there was a difference in the taste of water. We searched high and low for “good” tasting water before we refilled that RV tank and ended up buying bottled water to drink.

Thus, began our education about water and what a precious commodity it is. We are blessed to live in a country that has good water for the most part. There are questions about the use of Fluoride in public water supplies, aging utility pipes and how safe our water supplies are from terrorist attacks. But, we can take many steps to ensure that we have access to good, pure drinking and cooking water.

When we had finished our odyssey of America, we settled in a small town in Arizona. Would you believe that the water does not taste very good here? We love the area so just purchased a water filter for our new home.

Coconut Husk

Coconuts are mostly sold in grocery stores with a small part of their husk (coconut hair) still attached to it. This is done in order to preserve its freshness. Most of us remove the husk and discard it without a moment’s thought. However, this husk can be collected and used in a number of ways.

  • As peat moss – Instead of buying coco peat from the market, you can collect the coconut husk and use it along with compost and fertilizers as a potting soil. Adding it in layers in the soil can help the soil as it trap more water and avoids washing away essential nutrients.
  • As a cleansing tool for mince strainers – If you use a fine mesh strainer to wash mince, you will notice that the fat and small pieces of meat clog the pores of the mince strainer. Using the daily utensil scrubber to clean it would be unhygienic while using a separate scrubber each time you wash your mince would not be economical. In such cases, coconut husks can be a great cleansing aid. First, soak the strainer in hot water for about ten minutes. Then take

The regulations start right from the raising of the animals to ensure that procedures comply with the set regulations. For meat in Australia to be branded organic, livestock have to comply with the Australian Quarantine Inspections (AQIS) organic meat certifying agency. The certification programs and protocols are prepared, analyzed, accredited and audited each year to ensure that meat continuously complies with all set regulations. This is a requirement set by the national standard on organic meat production to ensure that standards aren’t compromised with the changing structure and policies of meat production.

In the production of this meat, compliance of even the soil as well as water management has to be in line with the National Standard for Organic:

  • Livestock must be left freely on the pasture
  • There has to be no intake of growth enhancers by the animals
  • Animal feeds must be fully free from synthetic pesticides.
  • The livestock inputs are not to be genetically modified to favor growth or high yield production.

All these are attributed to the fact that organic meat can only be produced if the process, right from the start incorporated only organic farming and environment friendly practices.

As more and more consumers base their purchasing decisions on reviews they read on various websites, that has, unfortunately, provided motivation to those who would try to sway people in an unethical fashion. Most avid readers know how that many merchants will post extremely glowing reviews of their own products while trashing the competition. They do so under the guise of “regular” customers. Sometimes, however, it can be extremely difficult for even savvy online veterans to be able to ascertain whether or not a review is to be trusted.

Five-star reviews of restaurants, for example, may be cleverly written by someone working on staff, or even the owner. The ones who are smart will write their “opinions” in a way that is virtually indistinguishable from legitimate reviews. The incentives for cheating remain high while the odds of being found out are very low.

However, owners of restaurants and many other kinds of businesses are getting much more sophisticated when it comes to weeding out illegitimate reviews. Some of them use advanced tools such as linguistic analysis to look for similar strings of words that appear in multiple reviews. Another example of a bogus review is when

Pasta recipes can be made from fresh noodles or dry noodles, depending on taste or time one has to prepare them. Even the pickiest eater can enjoy a nice plate of pasta.

Pair with Cheese or Sauces

Many pasta recipes involve some kind of sauce or cheese,because just plain pasta is not exciting enough and does not have much flavor. The most common sauce for pasta is a tomato sauce. It usually contains tomatoes, onions, oil, herbs, and garlic. Ground beef, veal, chicken, or vegetables can be added to this tomato-base sauce.

Another common sauce for pasta is a cream sauce. This sauce usually contains cream or milk, parmesan cheese, and garlic. Chicken or shrimp can be added to cream base sauces adding some protein as well as flavor. In Chinese recipes, soy sauce is added to the noodles for flavor along with vegetables or any kind of meat or seafood.
