    Please be mindful that you're supporting cruelty when you purchase this product.

      Who is down-voting this? ComfortablyNumb is not being self righteous or preachy just pointing out a reality that some may be unaware of.

      • +10 votes

        It's a well known fact that animals are slaughtered (death is cruel) for food so that's not the issue. ComfortablyNumb is simply coming off as a preachy vegan and that's what people don't like - preaching.

        • +12 votes

          The extent of the cruelty is not a well know fact, and I have heard many people say things like "it's not that bad in Australia". If you watched his link you would see that the slaughter part of the farming is by no means the most cruel aspect and the fact that you simply dismiss it as "death is cruel" shows that the public are not informed to the extent of the cruelty.

          I can see in no way how you could take what he wrote as coming off as a "preachy vegan". He does not tell you what to do or how to live, just politely points out a reality.

            @el_cheapo: I'm not attacking you, ComfortablyNumb or the content that's been shared, nor have I shared my actual opinion on the matter.

            I'm simply answering your question that the reason why these kind of comments are often downvoted is because the community perceive them as being preachy. Unfortunately there are some vegans (not all) who like to really force their views down other people's throats and attack them when they disagree. Much like other people in religion, politics and any other group.

            Besides this isn't restricted to posts about meat anyway. Take Nutella posts for example, people will comment about how palm oil is destroying the habitat of orangutans and that we shouldn't buy Nutella. Or how you're stupid to vote Liberal because they've done X and so forth.

            People should just remember that in these kind of situations there will always be someone who disagrees. I believe everyone is welcome to share their view and I respect that, but I also know that posting anything vegan in a meat deal would always get downvoted for what I said in the second paragraph. Much like going to an anti-trump rally with a make america great again hat ;)

              @Clear: Its more about exposing the industry practices that are deliberately hidden from the general population. Its not about views or beliefs (the paralell to religion doesn't hold up).

              If all consumers truly knew what suffering animals go through for us to have the products, the industry would not exist. The meat/egg/milk industries know this and thats why the majority of people are still kept unaware. But that is changing, you can see that from the responses in comments here.

              If you think you already know what happens, then I put it to you that unless you have seen a documentary like "Dominion", which is about Australian practices, then you don't have the full picture.

            •  

              @Clear: So, when the comment was made about supporting cruelty, you just made it about the death of the animal. People do know animals die.

              What was being referred to was the cruelty they suffer their whole life before they die and they manner in which they are killed. This is what the majority of people are unaware of.

                @realrift: Largely of propaganda value.
                If you think about any industrial meat producing process, then none of this would really be surprising.

                The same as visiting abottoirs.
                Not a pleasant experience, but it is a reality.
                And everything gets used, nothing is wasted, hence little chicks getting minced up.

                The only mass humane way to kill them efficiently would be using CO2.

                As much as I want less cruelty, I will not give up meat and I believe I have the right to enjoy eating meat without feeling guilty for something I have little control over.
                I do believe voting in an informed way, is one way to improve our country.

                  Its certainly not a necessity, its a luxury. Don't kid yourself. You have complete control over the process as you are actively supporting it every time you make a decision as to what you eat. You are paying for the "unpleasant experience" to continue.

                      @OzBragain: Dissmissive responses like this might make sense if vegetables were sentient beings capable of feeling pain and wishing to avoid suffering, but there is no evidence that they are.

                      Whereas, there is plenty of evidence to show animals feel pain and suffering and don't want to die, just like humans.

                      This is ofcourse completely ignoring the millions of tonnes of plants that are fed to animals before they are killed for humans to eat. Ignoring the cruelty to animals if you wish, it is highly inefficient and unsustainable.

      Based on some decade old knowledge, that does not look like Pepes farm I know of (NSW) so I assume it is Luv-A-Duck (Victoria).

      The only truth in that video I skimmed through is the extreme rate of growth where the ducks are fattened up (toddler duckies struggle to stand up again if they fall on their back). The density and bloody ducks issues are either staged or at some rogue farm.

      We are not allowed to hunt/gather to keep ourselves sustained. We are forced to buy consumer goods.
      Most of the things we need to survive are produced by corporations that are either cruel or damaging the planet or both.
      We can't stop them, nor are we responsible for these arseholes regardless of what garbage the media force feed us.
      Only the government has the power to stop these bastards and we have precious little power over the government

      While this won't stop me eating meat (as I'm aware every meat industry is horrendous), I do think that it is important to raise awareness about what's going on.

      We're so far removed from the food production process that we forget what happens to not only feed people, but feed people on the scale that our society does nowadays.

      Who knows, maybe one day a more humane method of farming or meat production can be attained. For now though, the least people could do is be aware where their food is coming from and appreciate the privilege.

    Duck fat roast potatoes!

    I love the royal blue potatoes you can get from Coles - for some reason, Woolies doesn't seem to stock them.

    I also boil my potatoes before I put them into the oven.

    •  

      Curious.. do you boil the spuds fully cooked or half? (before putting into the oven)

      • +8 votes

        They're usually quite cooked through so they're already fluffy.

        What I do is put the potatoes (cut into quarters for big ones and halves for smaller) in a pot of water and bring to boil. Add a bit of salt. Then I let it boil for about 15-20 mins. Once that's up, I'll strain it and put the potatoes back on the stove to take out the moisture. You'll need to constantly stir or shake the pot so it doesn't burn. Roughen them up a bit so the skin and flesh is no longer smooth. This will help with making the edges/outside crispy and retain the fluffiness inside when you roast them.

        Also, heat up the duck fat in a saucepan so you pour that shit all over the potatoes along with a buttload of rosemary just before you put them in the oven. Bake those bad boys for about 40 mins and you should be good. Turn them around the 25 min mark and make sure the oven is as hot as you can get it.

        Sprinkle a bit of garlic salt once done but not too much, cause you've added salt in the boiling process. They'll have a bit of flavour already. Enjoy!
