    Whatever.
    I'd rather sip a nice whisk(e)y, OK?
    Or some good cheese!

    there was a story on NPR(? I rarely listen) about a vegan butcher shop. It sounded really interesting. One of the owners tries new recipes on their father, who is a dedicated meat eater and they only go forward if he likes it. I am a dedicated meat eater, but I could go for a good veggie burger now and then. Maybe I should find a recipe, my wife has banned hamburgers ::sad face::

    There's vegan, and then there's Slutty Vegan. Anybody been there?

    PS Tonight's new food experience was sunchoke, a.k.a. Jerusalem Artichoke, which is not an artichoke. Imagine fingerling potatoes that look like ginger or turmeric. I'm a fan.

    I like vegan ribs.
    Hard to find.
    The juice is worth the squeeze.

    This morning I learn that these are also called "fartichokes". Holy oligosaccharides, Batman!

    Thanks for the excellent explanation. I don't know how you resisted the opportunity to write "flatulence". Such a great word.

    Quote Originally Posted by Octave View Post
    The plateau for oligosaccharide removal via soaking arrives at about 9 hours (i.e. after that there is no real benefit to continuing, though also no harm). This is considering a slightly alkaline water (i.e. a touch above pH 7). If you're not sure of the pH of your water, assume it is neutral and add a small amount of baking soda to bring the pH up. 1/4-1/3 tsp per gallon of water does the trick. About a gallon of water per kilo of beans is the general ratio to avoid saturating the water with oligosaccharides. Also, heat increases the transfer of oligosaccharides so you can actually boil the alkaline water and pour it over the beans, then leave for about half the time (4,5hr) with similar effect. That's not to say that an hour in neutral water won't do anything, but if you're looking to really get rid of the oligosaccharides the formula from studies on the matter is 9hr, pH 7,5-8.
    I will apply this technique to the sunchokes next time, or clear my calendar.
