Williamsburg Skatepark

They are building a skatepark just outside McCarren Park.  
Matt and I decided to go check it out and see if we could hop the fence.
Turns out, we weren't the only ones trying to skate it.
Here is a little clip that Matt threw together.

Just don't go unless there are a few people.

Minimize your ticketing risks....

Charred Peppers Taste Better

Pretty much anytime I use a pepper, I like to charr them.
All you really do is leave it out on an open flame.
Keep it going till it's completely  black.
Once the pepper is black, throw it in a covered container.
After a few minutes, the skin will loosen from the steam created,
making it easy to peel the burnt skin off.
Just peel it all off by hand, or under water.
I prefer by hand, I think water will take some of the flavor.

The end result will taste much better. 
It will add a different depth to your food.

New Bed

I built my own bed.
It is way better than something from Ikea.
Jessi is apparently "smarter" than me when it comes to building.
Buy a saw, Do it yourself.

Pickled Garlic Scapes

The recent obsession here has been Pickling.  
Matt and I decided to pickle some garlic scapes one night.
I got the idea from one off my bosses.
She was telling me the process of how her mom makes them.
How come Korean people know so much about pickling?
Heating up the brine.
Shoyu, Rice Vinegar, Sugar, Salt, Peppercorns.
Little snakelike tasty garlic scapes.
Matt tried to not blow it and miss the jar.
They have been sitting in the fridge for 2 weeks.
They are just about perfect.

The New Brooklyn Avocado home

Sorry for the lapse in posts.
Jessi and I made the decision to get an apartment together.
We had quite a few let downs but we got lucky.
The apartment is shaping up nicely.
The meals have been almost never-ending.
This is the new home for BKAVO Recipes.
