I just received a crock pot and have been using it in my garage for beef tallow. However, the temp in my garage can reach lows of around 28 degrees F in the winter. I'm wondering if, on the low setting, my crock pot should be able to quickly... (more)

Here is my different take on the subject. If the odor of something cooking turns you off, why do you want to eat it? One of the other answers recommends wrapping in a towel, not something you should do with an electrical appliance. Also keep in... (more)

Don't use a digital thermometer (oral or inner-ear). They are convenient BUT unreliable. Get one of these babies or something similar: Killer Thermometer

Test using a digital thermometer. Bacteria grows best between 40°F and 140°F ... AVOID this temp range. I'm guessing... The crock pot's Low setting should cook 150°-160F. A High setting should cook 195-200°F.

Look at pasturization protocols... 145F for 30 minutes. (VAT) 161F for 15-20 seconds. (HTST) 275F for 1 second. (UHT) Toss it in right before serving to get it warmed up, you'll have minimized die-off.

There was a similar question a few months ago, I cannot find it now. It seems like going low carb can reduce the viscosity of your blood. So your extremities will get colder while your core may feel warmer. Is this what you are feeling?

So I would assume that most of us here are well adapted to/can handle cold temperatures(from the amount of fat we eat) but how many of you have found that you can handle hotter temperatures better now since you've gone paleo?

I've never put nuts in the refrigeration. How do you store them - in plastic jars, glass jars, or ziplock bags? What shelf/drawer in the fridge do you put them - with veggies? How cold do you keep them? Thanks.
