Homemade bouillon powder and paste

leave a comment »

Making your own bouillon mix strikes me as an excellent idea, and I like the 101 Cookbooks version. Note these variations:

  • Nori Bouillon Powder: … lightly toast a sheet of nori and pulse that into the bouillon powder.
  • Mushroom Bouillon Powder: … add 2 teaspoons of your favorite powder or 1/4 cup chopped dried culinary mushrooms before blending…
  • Spicy Bouillon Powder: … add a couple of dried chiles (or blend of dried chiles) to your bouillon mix.

The post has (at the bottom) the recipe for the basic mix and also includes a link to a recipe for bouillon paste.

Double Doppelgänger with an Edwin Jagger

leave a comment »

A double dose of Doppelgänger: yesterday and again today. That Plisson European Gray is a wonderful brush. It picked up quite a bit of soap during loading, so I had to add a fair amount of water as I worked up the lather. The Edwin Jagger head her is on an iKon handle, and it did a wonderful job. 

Although the bottle of Hydrating Gel is too nearly empty for the pump to work, there’s still some left, so I was able to pour out a few drops to combine with the aftershave.

The tea today is Murchie’s Library Blend: “This blend of Ceylon, Jasmine, Keemun and Gunpowder teas has a rich, full base with the sparkle of aromatic Jasmine.” I steeped it for 4 minutes; I think next time I will go for 3.
