Except people from Valencia eh Ouston?
The things you learn on this site eh.......I'll square them up for you next time I'm out there.....
"Oi, Fernando, get them f***ing snails out of my dinner, Ouston says it aint pwoppa"
You're correct of course Chuck. I imagine all of our supporters read Wiki and know to put snails into paella. Specifically in the 19th century, but then again I only watch the Cooking Channel not the Historical Cooking Channel.
You might wish to notice this part of it too:
On special occasions, 18th century Valencians used paelleras to cook rice in the open air of their orchards near lake Albufera. The rata de marjal (marsh rat) was one of the main ingredients of early paellas
, along with eel and garrafones (butter beans).The rat-eating habits of the people of Valencia's rice-growing region were immortalized by Vicente Blasco Ibáñez in his novel Cañas y barro, a realist account about life among the fishermen peasants of the Albufera marshes in Valencia.[
Brilliant. I think that I'll recommend that we put rats into the next batch we cook up.
God forbid I wish to make some of our fans not able to see "banter" when they see it.
You're right again Chuck. The things we DO learn on here. However, think I'll stick to the more conventional method meself, after all I am at a loss to think where I might find rats around suburban, Katy*, Texas. Maybe in the old rice mills down the street..........
*Katy is named for the Missouri-Kansas-Texas Railroad (commonly referred to as the "K-T Railroad", now a part of Union Pacific) that ran through Katy in the 19th century. Katy was once known as Cane Island. The name is derived from Cane Island Creek which runs just west of downtown. Cane Creek is a branch of Buffalo Bayou. The origins of the name Cane Island are believed to be from the fact that Katy was once a major sugar cane producer and rice producer.
Glad to be of help.
