If you're going to "jest" you should be funnier. And if your only point in posting what you did was to "stir the pot" then you're a troll and have no business posting here.Looks like I stirred the pot well.
TBH Mr someday, I dont really think of It as cheating. My comment was in jest . I have used soda bicarb in the past with meats because it was the only way to do what needed to be done at the time.
I never said it was required? The OP is having trouble with the texture of their hummus. I offered a solution that I know will work. I don't know what your problem is.I have prepared hummus of exceptional quality enough of times to know it not required- always in a PC. The OP has a pressure cooker and he can turn his chickpeas into baby food in less time it that takes to boil the stuff - probably without even bothering to pre soak. Given that, Is there ANY point at all in adding soda??
Soda will help lessen the effects of gas after eating beans. So, there's another point on why you could/should add it.
Will a pressure cooker do that? Is there ANY point in using a pressure cooker at all if I can get the same result with baking soda AND lessen the gaseous impact? (<---see how stupid your argument looks?)
What about cooking a Bourguignon in a pressure cooker? Would that be cheating? Why or why not? Explain to me.
Again, your point is really dumb.If im going to add it into the PC, I might as well to the Bourguignon
The OP specifically asked about hummus and chickpeas. I don't know why you keep bringing up Bourguignon...if the OP asked for advice on why their meat was tough in a Bourguignon I'd have different advice.
Adding things to beans to change the pH is an old technique. Boston baked beans have molasses in them to lower the pH, so you can simmer beans in an oven all day and they still don't go mushy. Is adding molasses to make beans "tougher" cheating too?
I might add some sodium chloride to the beans, maybe even some di-hydrogen monoxide...is that cheating?
Yeah, I don't know why you quoted the same post of mine in multiple posts of your own. That statement you quoted (again, twice separately) wasn't directed at you, and I only made it once. "The first time" was the only time.Heard you the first time.
I always thought there was more than one way to skin a cat
If you need help formatting posts or understanding quoting or anything I'm sure there are some tutorials on youtube, or even this site, that could help you with that.
Time to go back under your bridge.
