also, if you hollowed out the apple and then froze it, the structural integrity of the skin wouldn't hold up as well as let's say, an orange.
hmm. orange creamsicle martini. :drool:?

What if you melted the apple down and then shaped it into a mug then froze it.

We'll transfer 30% of power to shields, that should do it.
You risk a warp core breach and introduce significant danger to the manifolds by doing that.

:p :heart:
all i'm saying is that it's easier said than done. it's easy to use pineapples and coconuts for tropical drinks, because they have such hard rinds. apple skin is insanely flimsy.

Not if we realign the frontal array with tachyon pulses using multiphasic distortion.

But the Heisenberg compensators won't work with that kind of distortion! Make April23 use the transporter.

:shifty:

The phase disruption caused by her enormous mass displacement during the demolecularization of her body would disrupt the life support systems on the ship for at least 10 seconds. Everyone hold your breath.

found it, it takes a long time, which i spent drinking wine:

BUTTER - POACHED LOBSTER WITH CREAMY LOBSTER BROTH AND ORZO (TK) Yield: 4 to 6 servings

Total time: 1 hour, 20 minutes plus about 4 hours simmering and reducing time

This is one of Thomas Keller's most famous dishes, adapted from his "The French Laundry Cookbook." Although it looks complicated, it is really quite simple to prepare if the cooking is spread over two days.

Lobsters: 3 1 1/2 pound spiny lobsters * white distilled vinegar

1. Place the lobsters in a tight-fitting pot. Cover with cold water. Drain off the water and measure it. For every 8 quarts of water, add one-half cup of white distilled vinegar. 2. In a separate large pot, bring the vinegar water to a boil. Pour it over the lobsters. Cover the pot, turn off the heat and let steep 2 minutes (for lobsters up to 1 1/2 pounds). Remove the lobsters from the hot water and drain. Discard the water. 3. One at a time, using a towel or rubber gloves to hold the hot lobsters, grasp their tails and twist and pull to detach them. Reserve the bodies. Hold each tail flat and twist the tail fan to one side: pull off and discard. Use your fingers to gently push the meat through the tail end and pull the meat out through the large opening at the other end. Reserve the shell. Lay the tail meat on its back and cut lengthwise in half. Remove the vein running through the top of the meat. Place the meat on a paper towel-lined plate or platter, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate.

Lobster broth: 1/4 cup canola oil 3 spiny lobster body and tail shells, cut into 3" pieces 1 1/2 cups chopped tomatoes (about 3 small tomatoes) 1/2 cup chopped carrots 1 large bunch tarragon * water 2 cups heavy cream

1. Heat the oil in a large, deep-sided pot. Add the lobster shell pieces and sear over medium-high heat until they turn red, 1 to 2 minutes per side (if your pot is not big enough to hold all the shells, sear them in 2 batches). 2. Add the tomatoes, carrots and tarragon, cover the shells and vegetables with water, and bring to a boil. Skim off any impurities that rise to the top. Reduce the heat and simmer over low heat for 1 hour. Strain the stock through a large strainer, smashing the shells with a wooden spoon to extract all the liquid, and then strain again into a clean saucepan. 3. Return the strained stock to the stove and simmer until it is reduced to 1 cup. (This may take 1 1/2 to 2 hours, depending on the amount of water added initially.) Add the heavy cream, return to a simmer, and cook, skimming occasionally, until the broth is reduced to 1 1/4 cups, about 1 hour. Strain through a fine strainer into a container, discarding any solids remaining in the strainer. Cover and refrigerate the broth for several hours or up to 3 days.

Parmesan crisps: 1/4 cup finely grated * Parmigiano-Reggiano

1. Heat the oven to 325 degrees. Line a baking sheet with a silicon nonstick liner. Sprinkle about 2 teaspoons of the cheese on the liner. Use your fingers to spread the cheese into a 2-inch circle. Repeat with the remaining cheese to make 6 rounds. Bake until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Use a small spatula to transfer the rounds to paper towels. They will still be soft when they are removed but will stiffen as they cool. Store in an airtight container for up to 2 days.

Assembly: * reserved meat of 3 lobsters 1 1/4 cups lobster broth (1 recipe) 1/2 cup orzo 2 tablespoons mascarpone * salt 1 1/2 cups butter 1 tablespoon water 1 tablespoon minced chives 6 Parmesan crisps

1. If the lobster pieces have been refrigerated, bring them to room temperature. 2. Place the lobster broth in a saucepan and bring it to a simmer. 3. Cook the orzo in boiling, lightly salted water until just tender. Drain the cooked pasta in a strainer and rinse under cold water. Shake the strainer to remove excess water and add the orzo to the lobster broth. 4. Heat the orzo and lobster broth to a simmer. Add the mascarpone and season with salt to taste. Let simmer for a minute, then remove the pan from the heat and keep warm. 5. Melt the butter in a large saucepan and whisk in 1 tablespoon of water. Arrange the lobster pieces in the saucepan in one layer; the lobster should almost be covered. Heat gently on low heat to warm the lobster through, about 8 minutes. Do not let the butter take on any color. 6. Stir the chives into the orzo. Place about one-third cup of orzo in the center of a serving plate. Arrange a piece of lobster in the center of the orzo and top each serving with a Parmesan crisp.
