As to the roux color, that is where I fail. I can't get beyond blonde, even after hours of careful heat control and constant stirring. I will give it a try with my new cast iron pan.
Trying adding some Worcestershire sauce to the roux while it's cooking.

Mark, that will add flavor and color, but it won't cook the flour.* To get a dark roux with a rich flavor,*you have to get the flour cooked.

Like I said, add the sauce while you're cooking the roux.* All that's necessary is to remove the flour taste, which doesn't take long.* The roux is well beyond "cooking" after it has turned dark*brown without the Worcestershire.* Once the roux is cooked, it is added to make the gravy, stew, whatever.

That would work if it is Lea & Perrins of course.

I wouldn't consider using any other.* But don't think I've ever seen any other brand.* Does L&P have a copyright on* Worcestershire Sauce?

I s'pose people of Asian persuasion would tend to*use soy sauce.* If I was doing an Asian dish, I'd probably use it, but for a European dish I'd use L&P.

Add four to six ounces of good bourbon, canadian whiskey, or fine single malt scotch, and a couple ounces of L & P Worcestershire Sauce, and your favorite steak seasoning. Zip it up and let it slosh in your ice chest for 8-12 hours. The result is fabulous. Bon Appetite.

There are*others out there posing as Worcestershire sauce.* If you want to donate to John Kerry's 5 million dollar yacht you can buy*one of them.* *L & P is the only one a true Cajun will use.

Maybe we should start a thread on WANNABEE SAUCES!

French's used to make Worchesterchire sauce... but I haven't used or looked for anything other than L&P for decades.

Winter Cruising

Jay,
You are so right on. Winter cruising in the PNW is always a*special experience. A couple of weeks ago I warmed*up Northstar (Willard 40), slipped the lines, and motored solo out*onto Guemes Channel heading for Friday Harbor.*With Small Craft Warnings*on the radio, it was slow going as I crossed Rosario Strait against heavy beam seas. But once we passed through Thacher Pass and entered the San Juan Islands, all was calm and beautiful with dramatic views of snow covered mountains to the west. The skies were clear and*the afternoon sun warmed*the saloon so much that I had to turn off the Kabola furnace --*outside it was a*chilly 36 degrees!*

Three hours after leaving Anacortes later I entered Friday Harbor and ideled up to*the guest dock where*helping hands took my lines.*Despite the*cold days, it was a fun weekend, spent reading, listening to CBC radio, and swapping*lies (and rum and coke?) with the guys on the trawler next to me. The cruise back to Anacortes*was uneventful, with calm seas, dodging Washington State*ferries, and again, friendly hands waiting*to help with the lines. Winter jaunts can be a delight here in the PNW.

Great picture Bob. We have been through Malibu in the summer. My wife asked were those your"s or your wife's footprints on the front deck in the snow?

God, DeFevers are tough!

RE: Winter Cruising

Thanks everyone for the kind words.* We liked the hint of blue in the sky too, more so when it turned into more blue.* And those are my footy-prints in the fresh snow.* It was absolutely dead calm*so I cast off*alone while SWMBO was cleaning up the galley.
