      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

    You know what we all love...

    When you enchant people, you fill them with delight and yourself in return. Have Fun!!!

Easy Applesauce

Easy Applesauce

Easy Applesauce

I have a wealth of apples this year so this afternoon I along with one of the granddaughters made applesauce. A pretty simple recipe as we first peeled and cored about twenty good size apples. We then sliced them up and added a quart of apple cider to a cooking pot along with one cinnamon stick. We brought the mix to a boil and then tuned down the heat and let it simmer with the lid on for twenty minutes. I then drained off the liquid, removed the cinnamon stick and using a ladle I filled the blender about half full, added a little of the apple juice from the pot and puree the mix for a few seconds. I made about a quart which was quickly dived up between my two daughters. I just got a call that they want more! We prefer the unsweeten applesauce but you can certainly experiment by adding more cinnamon and sugar to you mix. And the wife says I can’t cook ! The remainder of the cider will be used for the next batch or we just might add a little rum and tuck in the back of the fridge for when it gets cold outside.

Really easy applesauce....

Don't peel or core apples.  Wash if you are picky.  Or if you sprayed them recently. 

Cut in chunks, like quarters. 

Cook until soft, run through a food mill (foley being the classic around here).

Discard peels and seeds. 

Voila, applesauce. sweeten to taste.

I have like 15 apple trees, and have made a lot of applesauce.  It is a good use for the apples that are misshapen or have a bad spot. 

Apples don't do as well now that I am retired and go north in the summer.  Not much of a crop this year, although I think that is due to the every other year thing, mostly.

I forgot to add that we have one of them corer/peelers that does an apple in about ten seconds. You guys didn't think I was peeling them maybe by hands did Ya ! 

Those work really well with nice round apples.  Now my apples on the other hand were typically not nice and round.

    • I think part of the problem was that rent was too high in riverdale. It should be better at that location. And it is right off the highway may be better for them. Time will only tell.

    • Hello, I am thinking about getting only one sonar/gps for my boat.  I am looking at a HB Helix 10” si mega on the console.  I will most likely be buying a Uterra ipilot, no link.  This is a new boat and I am looking to save some money. I will have a nice large rear casting deck and really only fished in the bow of other boats when fishing shallow weed lines. any thoughts or opinions would be appreciated.
    • Finished pork loin I fixed up, squished spuds, kraut and grilled asparagus.
