    the first go-round would have worked if the curing prosses was done at low heat to evaporate the moisture as they dried. (this is what they do at the factory)

    As someone who likes Peeps, can confirm we know they're gross. There's a reason they're only in stores once a year. Me and my mom buy a lot, eat ourselves sick, and swear them off for a year.
    But I do enjoy eating them until I get sick. Go figure

    Gotta roast those at the camp fire. Like browning a marshmallow, but ends up melting the sugar in to a candy shell around melty marshmallow.

    I'm sitting here watching Clair with a messed up ear while dealing with exactly the same thing. Hopefully, the second trip to the doctor will net me with something to treat it. First time in, they thought it just needed cleaned out, but I knew there was more to it as I have had the same kind of infection before. I feel her pain..........well, regarding her ear as I am no cook or chef.

    You have to flick the piped peep to get a peak beak and cover it, so you don't get weeping peeps. It took me two minutes to write that sentence.

    I'm pretty sure the low wage workers who operate the peeps factory don't add any emotional love to the peeps. Physical love maybe...
