I had a few days off work for the Ingress event in Bristol, so it took longer. Next one will probably be similar (I have a few days off for my wife’s birthday) but it’ll be with the new camera, and the century episode!
I’m going to script another face to camera video for that. Same place, same channel 😉
Over 8 minutes this time around! I’m back in sync with my work schedule now so normal running times should follow for a while.
The running theme seems to be the Psychic School Of Motoring and Must Get In Front impatient b’stards that can’t stand to see a cycle ahead of them at traffic lights, even if it means cutting in at the last moment!
In this set of clips we have a good variety. Overtaking to turn left, impatient taxi drivers who can’t wait 3 seconds, a pointless bike lane, red light jumpers (car and bikes), some idiot handbrake turning in a car park, ignorant pedestrians acting like sheep, late decisions, drivers who think everyone else is psychic, some very loud quads, due courtesy from me, and an unbelievable, impromptu formation weave.
The main theme of this episode appears to be taxis. Some taxi drivers seem to have found their licences rather than passed any test.
It’s longer than average this time, with 26 clips. I normally wait until the midweek break at this point in my roster, but a week off has pushed things out of sequence. I’ll publish the next one before my long weekend to get back in step 😉
Even on maximum heat, I’m unable to get the temperature above 110°C. It needs to get to 116°C or it won’t set.
I started on a low heat to melt the butter and dissolve the sugar, upped the heat when the temperature stopped rising and it was great up to about 108°C, lovely and smooth, but then the heat rise slowed to a crawl, even though the cooker was as maximum, and a significant amount burned to the bottom of the pan as I kept the heat up for longer than I should in the vain hope of getting the required temperature.
The final result is very soft. Really, really sticky. Tastes great though!
Any tips on increasing the temperature while keeping a thermometer in the pan will be greatly appreciated. Preferably without burning a large amount to the pan in the process.
