How long can aturkey be keot frozen before cooking


Hi rollande laframboise

I have kept turkeys frozen for 4 years, and cooked them and they were as good as fresh turkey,as long as the turkey is properly vacuumed packed 3 to 4 yrs is not an unreasonable time to keep the turkey...if not properly vacuum packed, cook within 3 months or it may get "freezer burned"...dried out and tastes "funny" (not good).
Please take time to rate me

Lost directions for using my Sisan Steamer. I have the water measure but don't know how much salt to add. Can you help?


The measuring cup holds 1/4 cup. Fill with tap water and pour one full measure into the hole exposed by removal of handle. Then measure table salt into small hollow on handle. Next, pour two (2) full measures of salt into a second measuring cup full of water, and pour into Sisan. Never use more salt than will fill the measuring hollow in handle. Remember that should the steam cease, unplug and refill with two measures of tap water, but no more salt.

Maintenance:
Add one (1) teaspoon white vinegar to two measures of tap water, put it in the Sisan Steamer and let it run a few minutes. Then pour this out of the Steamer and rinse well to scale the inside.

All of a sudden my electric percolator coffee tastes very metallic. i have been using this pot for 20+ years!


Try running white vinegar through it for a cycle to clean it then run plain water. If that doesn't fix it, and nothing else has changed, try buying a gallon of water at the store and making coffee with that. Something may have changed with your water supply. Water quality is one of the most important aspects of coffee making. If none of this helps, have someone else taste it. If you've started a medication recently it could be altering your taste as well. Good luck.

Weird taste and smell in water from cooler


The best way to clean it is to run pipe cleaners through the tubes followed by a baking soda solution. If you have an empty cooler bottle put a gallon of hot water into it and three tablespoons of baking soda. Install it and run all of the water through the cooler and also through the hot side. This will make it clean and sweet smelling once again.

Kenmore water softener tank flooded; no soft water


Well, there was no good solution. I capitulated and called in a professional Sears repair guy. He was as baffled as I about what was wrong. We just started throwing parts at it until the problem subsided. We finally decided there must have been a tiny vacuum leak somewhere, probably in some rubber part.

How do I stop my hot dogs from looking bag coming from my steamer


not really discolor, does it looks like came out of water?
if so, that is because the steamer works. Steamer is cooking the food via water vapor and heat. For the dogs to looks like dog, you need to "dry out" the skin. pan fry, BBQ, grill, or any other metod you can to dry out the skin, then it should start to look like a dog.

Water softener doesn't work properly


Check for iron content of the water in your area. Excessive iron will clog the zeolite beads in your softener and reduce its life. You can try increasing the backwash and rinse cycles to see if it helps. You can also get an iron pre-filter for a softener. I am assuming you have either a private well or a municipal well.

GE SmartWater Softener GNSF35ZO1


I am not familiar with your specific model of softener, but generally speaking, adding water to the brine tank is the last step of the regeneration process. This way the water can soak the salt until the next regeneration is called. Then, as you have determined, the valve does reverse direction and draws the brine solution through the resin.
There are other steps involved in regeneration, like back-washing and packing the resin, but you are mostly correct.

Hope this helps,
Kermit

Water hardness


Magnesium Anode rodes will make water smell like rotten eggs. If you can for your heater get a aluminum anode rode and replace the one you have.
