Episode 306: Black Eyed Peas, Soft Boiled Eggs, and Clean Pots

Black eyed peas

In Food News this week, we talk about an innovation in avocados.

In What’s for Dinner, it’s Marcus Samuelsson Black-Eyed Peas with Coconut Milk and Ethiopian Spices and it is delicious.

In How’d You Make that, Marisa has something she has to get off her chest about soft boiled eggs.

How do you clean your pots and pans?

And finally, in What We’re Loving, it’s parsnips! (Here’s that parsnip cake Joy mentioned.)

  1. Can we discuss the green cleaning option Marissa mentioned, and I’ve seen on the interwebs? I didn’t realize with the bristle brush system you don’t use soap, but it kind of makes sense since it wouldn’t hold the soap in the same way a sponge does. What do you use instead? Baking soda? I assume it needs *something* do cut grease. Help please

      1. I’ve never heard of bar soap for dishes, interesting! I absolutely love the japanese tawashi bristle brushes for cleaning cast iron. I think they’re made out of coconut fiber, and you can find them on amazon. I always buy one when I find myself at the Wok Shop in Chinatown SF. They’re cheap and wonderful!
        Loved your dis on “jammy” eggs. Call it what it is, amen!
        Thanks for your wonderful podcast. I’ve got my two sisters and my mom hooked – we live across the country and all enjoy cooking, and we often talk or text about things we’ve heard on your show! p.s. I also love how the show evolves with your separate cooking lives (pregnancy, babies, NA drinks, vegan, etc) It’s real, I often relate, and even when I don’t I enjoy the discussion and perspective. Onward and thanks for all you contribute to the world!

        1. I will look for those scrubbers! And I’m glad that you like how the show has evolved. All we can do is keep sharing our kitchen lives and hope that people relate!

  2. Just so you know, there’s a contingent of folks out there who are crocheting scrubbie sponges! A friend of mine does it, and I bought a few from her (2 for $6) – they are washable (I bought 4 and wash them once a week, so I have a months’ supply), and they are WAY stronger than the scrubbiest of sponges from the store!! I bet you could use them with your bar soap still and they’d be amazeballs. You can check out Etsy, or just have Joy reach out to me and I’ll hook you up with my friend.
