I'm glad you like it. It was an attempt to knock off a sauce that a local (Southern Oregon, then) Chinese restaurant had (in used ketchup bottles) on every table. We tried for years to figure what was in it, and one day I remembered Mom's old potato salad dressing, and it got me thinking of the acid-egg thing. As far as the potato salad thing, Mom died when I was pretty young, and I'm not sure I could re-create her dressing.

As far as Cultus Bay Distillery goes, just Friday we got word that our license is approved, although we don't have the paper yet. You'd think (or I did) that after all these years of distilling, I could just do all of this stuff off the top of my head, but it turns out I have to solve new problems what seems like every step of the way.

I've got a sound book outline, and it's mostly about filling it in with trying to un-stupid myself, so it's definitely a work in progress.

Oh, that magic centrifugal wash filter? So far it's half a success; it de-gasses fresh carbonated wort very nicely, and it takes out some of the flocculated yeast, but it won't deal with that yeast cake in the bottom of the fermenter (yet, I tell myself). I guess I'm at about half-a-boob right now.

Here's a link to the chapter in a cookbook I never finished, that tells the story of the mustard sauce.

ZB, excellent write up on mustard and the pink sauce recipe. Your writing style is very enjoyable - even when the subject is something as mundane as mustard. You have me wanting to try your egg/acid sauce technique. I've only ever used dry mustard as an emulsifier when making vinegar/oil type dressings and marinades. The pink sauce is something I think I might like to try.

BTW, congratulations on getting your license approval. Does this mean you can finally run your CCVM?

Speaking of Southern style food - I found this funny video on Youtube. It has nothing to do with potato salad, but might lend some perspective.

Z-Bob,

Thank you for your reply! Now I am looking forward to your cookbook too! I agree whole heartedly with SC, your writing style is both clear and enjoyable. I have been a fan from my early days as a forum lurker. I treasure your first book. As I have stated many times here and on other forums, "Your book is a must have!" Old timer or newb, your library is not complete without Z-Bob's fine book!
I am going to have to try your Swiss steak recipe. It sound excellent! I am in the camp that does not enjoy liver in any form, but I am going to take you at your word and give nutmeg chicken liver with pink sauce a try.

Glad to hear your second book is in the works. Great news on the license! Having to think thru and solve new challenges as they arise is a great joy when it works. I still find the "Magic Centrifuge" fascinating, I appreciate the up date.

Good luck in all your projects!

Just Sayin'

Well, I won't twist your arm, and make you eat something you don't like, but if you're really on the fence add more fresh nutmeg to the flour, make sure the liver is crunchy, and make the pink sauce hot as hell. You may never even notice the liver. :D

Thanks. I plan on doing the first vodka mash tomorrow, which will be 2 strippersful, and another (2 strippersful) the day after. After 3 stripper runs, dependent on our actually having the paper license in hand, then we can run the vodka still, and you'll be the first (at least online) to hear.

Hey Hey Hey, potato salad is a salad for the meat potato kind of guy, most of us don't eat rabbit food, we eat 2nd hand vegetables. I protect the vegetarians meal by making a meal out of what eats all their food.

No not at all, potato salad is a good side dish for us guys that are not to fond of the fluffy green salads and salad dressings some eat.

I beg your pardon??!! When I eat a vegetable, I want absolutely positive assurance that I'm the first person to eat that particular vegetable! (although I've tasted beer that tasted like someone else had drunk it first)
