Bottle Caps


TVWBB Olympian
There's a hole in the wall place we stop at while coming back from my friend's favorite mining spot.... I was on the road today & thought about stopping there for some bottle caps (fried Jalapenos) but then I was only 1.5 hours from home.

I'm not sure that Barb D has posted her beer batter recipe but I'm about to..

Mixed up the batter, chopped up 6 Jalapenos:

I made some homemade blue cheese dressing - I forgot the buttermilk but I'll take care of that tomorrow.

I hung my TV above the fireplace last week - still not straightened out but........

I find that the trick with beer batter is first to use beer (I used Uinta's Cutthroat Pale Ale for my best although very limited results) and then I find that if I drink 1 beer per 3 minute batch things really turn out well.... put it in for 3 minutes, drink half a beer, flip the battered goodies, drink the 2nd half... dunno what it is but it just seems to work.

My kind of treat!

Same thing happens to me. It works out cuz I'm having fun and stop sweating the little things.

Must have missed that recipe. Those things look addictive!
They're good :) - the onion rings reheat well from frozen.... I put 2 baggies of these in the freezer I'm sure will be great tomorrow or sometime soon.

Here's Barb's Beer batter recipe - I tried it with water once (fail), and with a pale ale 2-3 times. I've never had luck with battering before this:

And the blue cheese (the ranch is I hate to say just as good - both the blue & ranch are worth trying): ...I've made a few variations of each.

Great recipe. It reminds me of a bourbon BBQ sauce recipe: taste the bourbon to be sure it's fit to cook with, later in the recipe taste it again to be sure it didn't go bad, etc, etc. LOL

Clint, those look great will have to give a try. I've also put the recipe in side dish recipes for everyone.

Those look great. Never thought of slicing the jalapenos like that to fry.

I try to follow that same beer recipe whenever I light up a grill ;)
