Hello, friends! @mtmwood online! And today I present article about disadvantages of an end grain cutting boards, and about tree species!
End grain cutting boards are not without disadvantages:
● Because of technological reasons these boards are thicker and, respectively, heavier;
● They require more thorough care
● As a rule, only one side is used as a working surface in the end grain cutting boards
When choosing an end grain cutting board, you need to pay attention to the wood from which the board is made. In each region boards are made of the most common and cheap materials. The most popular in Russia are boards made of birch, beech, oak, ash, hornbeam, walnut. .
In the USA, for example, the most common material for cutting boards is mountain (sugar) maple, walnut, American (black) cherry, mahogany. Need to say that the most common - does not mean the best. With reference to the conditions of our country, the production of boards from birch is determined mainly by economic reasons and by the widespread prevalence of this species of wood. At the same time, birch wood - not durable, strongly absorbs moisture, has a not very neat appearance. One of the worst choices for the end grain cutting board is beech wood, which has a very high hygroscopicity and has a very high shrinkage factor when humidity changes.
Friends, write in the comments from what kind of tree species would like get yourself a cutting board! I will read them. And see you in the new article!

Boil 5 cut up Roma tomatoes in 2-3 cups of water with 1/2 tablespoon of chicken bouillon, 1/2 a white onion, 5 cloves of garlic, 2 bay leafs, 2-3 springs of fresh oregano, salt and pepper, a little chili pepper flakes
Once boiling bring down to a very low simmer - let simmer for 20-30 minutes until everything is soft and mushy •

Been enjoying this Red Palm Oil so much recently! Mainly for sautéing but also tried it in a banana bread which turned a beautiful luminous gold/orange colour. It has similar health properties as coconut oil but with more nutrients, like A & E.
Still lots to learn about the health properties of this oil, but I wanted to share because I'm enjoying the flavour and colour so much 🤗 Well worth a try!
Oh and: Don't be confused between Red Palm Oil and Palm Oil (An extremely refined, toxic and earth damaging oil). The rich red colour is a sign it hasn't been refined 🤓
