They are chased by Slide's boss, Cpt. Tanner, but since they threaten to shoot the policeman, Tanner simply follows them across East Texas, heading a long caravan of police cars soon joined by journalist and civilians. The couple manages to refuel the patrol car and grab food thanks to Tanner's unwillingness to have them shot from a distance. They spend one night hidden in the lot of a used car's seller, and are shot at by trigger-happy, former policemen. The manage to leave, gathering crowds of supporters whenever they drive through a town. As Tanner sees no way out, he agrees to set up a trap by hiding two snipers in the foster parents' house.

Cocotella 4

Translation: [ Google | Babelfish ]

Categories: [ Cooking/Ice Cream ]

Nouvelle variante de cocotella pour essayer de me débarasser des cristaux de glace. Celle-ci contient du lait en poudre et du sirop de glucose.


  • 90 g sucre
  • 37 g lait en poudre
  • 37 g sirop de glucose
  • 5 g glucose
  • 2 œufs (100 g)
  • 415 g lait de coco (400 mL)


Mélanger les ingrédients secs. Battre un peu les œufs dans une casserole, ajoute les ingrédients secs et fouetter. Ajouter le sirop de glucose et fouetter encore. Ajouter le lait de coco, mélanger. Faire chauffer en remuant continuellement jusqu'à atteindre 80 °C. Laisse refroidire et reposer 24h au réfrigérateur. Passer à la sorbetière.


On ne sent plus les critaux de glace, mission accomplie.

Les proportions sont calculées avec une estimation erronée de la masse du lait de coco (j'avais estimé 430 g au lieu de 415 g). La version corrigée contient 83 g de sucre, 50 g de lait en poudre et sirop de glucose et 3 g de glucose. Je suis étonné que l'optimiseur change autant les proportions (-9 % de sucre, +35 % lait en poudre et sirop de glucose) avec une différence de seulement 4 % dans la quantité de lait de coco. Il a peut-être trouvé un autre optimum local ?
