This tag is used for two different types of questions.
One type asks about how to prepare particular foods for cooking either by removing all dirt and debris, or by removing unwanted parts of the vegetable or animal. Please cross-tag these with the type of food.
The second type of question asks about the residue of cooking, eating, or storage on equipment. Again, please cross-tag with the type of equipment being discussed. For questions of this type, please check carefully to see if a similar question has already been answered. Duplicates will be closed.
