There sure are a lot of ground spices in Dave's cookbook.... The infographic & shopping list say powdered spices are the most risky. So... I'm supposed to be grinding clove, coriander, cumin etc myself?
Do you? What do you use, a coffee grinder?
Okay, thanks - and do you use a coffee bean grinder or...
Joanna, depends on your blender. Most have a dry spice grinder attachment.
Another tip: i use a separate little container to make the spice mix/baste for the recipe... don't tip them in while it's all cooking. Firstly, you get a better measurement and secondly, you don't get steam going into your spice containers (creating mould).
No sorcery, just science.
Wowie-wow! This is so cool... found it when looking into spice-attachments for blender. This video shows how to use a Mason Jar for that:
YIKES! Maybe that's not an awesome idea after all... Unless this guy is making stuff up? Look how "Charles P Dog" narrowly escaped death using a Ball Mason Jar on his blender:
Before I DIY anything, I always ask myself one question: How can this end badly? (sometimes this means I still go through with it... but there is probably beer and fire involved!)
I took out a bottom shelf of my wardrobe, so I could add another bar to hang a second row of clothes on over the weekend.
How could it end badly? I cut the bar to the wrong size or break a drill bit making guide holes. Either require another trip to the hardware store.
How could modifying glass jars to fit onto a blender end badly?
Holy shit. You've got glass that wasn't meant to be near high-speed metal coming close to high-speed metal. That's a trip to the emergency ward waiting to happen. All I can say for that is: LOL! I wish that guy YouTube'd what went wrong! There is nothing I love more than seeing stupid people get hurt doing stupid things. :-P
