      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!!!

Making Hot Sauce

Recommended Posts

Who has done it? I went to a wedding last month, a guy made some homemade ghost pepper sauce, it sent me into a sweaty bung burning spiral. Even though it burned, it tasted amazing. There aren't too many hot sauces that I don't like, but there are a few that taste like dump to me. Tobasco is nasty, I can handle the heat, it's just the tangy fermented taste that gets me gagging. I love their green sauce though. 


I've got some ingredients laying around that will be melded into my own unique hot sauce, I like flavor as well as a good burn in my hot sauce. I'll let you know how this turns out once I figure out just what I'm going to do, in the mean time if anyone has any good recipes they'd like to share I'd love to hear them.

There are a few posts on making Home made hot sauce down the thread line in the Cooking area.


I just go pick up a ton of Jalapenos at Walmart or Cub and blend them in a blender with a cup of white vinegar. All my relatives loved it. I also have made a few XXX ones just for me using Habaneros,Thai peppers and Ghost peppers but they cost a lot more to buy. :)

Ok I had about a dozen and a half jalapenos, mixed red and green, and about a half dozen anaheim chilis left from the garden. I rough chopped those after I slid them under the broiler for a few minutes alongside 5 or 6 cloves of garlic. It went into a pot with a cup and a half of white vinegar, the juice from a couple of limes and a can of chipotle peppers and adobo sauce to add a little smokiness. That all simmered for a while before I stuck it all into a blender with about a cup of apple cider vinegar and let that blend for a while. I strained it through a wire strainer and it has been in the fridge for a few days. Wow it is so good, the spice level is approaching hot but the flavor is amazing.

Took your advise Jim and made some sauce kinda following your recipe, I smoked the peppers on the grill with wood chips instead of broiling. Turned out sweet, smokey and packing quite the punch.


What am I gonna put it in?

Mrs Duff says I have the perfect thing for it, and yes she did.......
