    ***Coconut flour is not an effective substitute for flour in a roux...

    ***You can't make bulletproof iced mocha... Coconut oil solidifies when its cold... Who knew :/

    ***If you make your bulletproof coffee with butter and coconut oil, dont blend it too long or the butter will turn into some strange gooey undrinkable mass.

    ***Blending a shake made with heavy whipping cream too long will turn the cream into whipped cream.. Also not that yummy...

    Coconut flour is also not very suitable for breading squid...at least not the way I did it. Gooey mess.

    Whole frozen sardines have very tough clear scales that need to be removed before making MHS with them...or they clog up the straw! Yuck!

    Unsalted sardines canned in spring water are NOT tasty.

    I love smoked oysters! And mussels, too. Finding them in a decent oil is tricky, though!

    so - should I try different brands? would there be much of a difference?

    I find them all pretty similar...although the last ones I bought at Costco don't seem as flavorful for some reason. They are nothing like fresh oysters, that's for sure!

    I seem to be throwing up fresh oysters so I guess I better suck up the canned ones

    This brand Crown Prince Natural Smoked Oysters in Pure Olive Oil is not bad. My hubby says it is edible [​IMG].

    I'm far from a connoisseur, but I do have a can of Aldi's smoked oysters in springwater with breakfast every day. Their mussels only come in crappy oil, but they also have sardine sprats in olive oil.

    I discover them all fairly identical...although the last ones I purchased at Costco don't seem as tasty for some purpose. They are nothing like clean oysters, that's for sure!

    I was wondering if smoked oysters are ok compared to fresh ones. I have never been able to stomach fresh ones, & I've always read to avoid canned foods...in saying that I am eating tinned sardines 3-4 times a day now and still wonder if I am doing the 'right' thing. Surely fresh is the best in all respects? Are their any negative effects from eating tinned stuff all the time, it has been years since I've eaten anything from a can/tin and I don't want to give myself any extra problems.
