The color should not be a problem for you as long as red coloring in beef packaging doesn't bother you. That's right, that blue dye is blood. Crustaceans, like the prawn, crab, and lobster, and horseshoe crabs have hemocyanin in their blood to transport oxygen instead of hemoglobin, which we have. Hemocyanin has copper in it to give it its color rather than ...

Even though you turned the oven off when you left, there was still likely enough residual heat to continue cooking the chops. Rather than a half-cooked chop that sat out for 4 hours, you've got mostly or fully-cooked chops that sat in a warm environment for 2-3 hours. Whether they hit the recommended internal temperature (which is now actually 145F with a ...

Once your solution is alcoholic or acidic enough there is no risk of mold. However- this recipe does not include any yeast or acetobacters, it relies on getting the necessary microbes from the air and the ...

After the Big Green Egg is COMPLETELY cooled down, put a container of DampRid on the grate.

Last year we had a lot of mold ...

The relevant component of vinegar is acetic acid, which is a byproduct produced by certain bacteria when they consume ethanol, and ethanol is a byproduct formed when certain yeasts consume sugar. Looking the recipe you link, I'd assume that some of the sugars in the mixture ferment into ethanol, which is then consumed and broken down to acetic acid. After ...

I have heard it stated before, but here it is from various sources: Source 1 Source 2 (confirms the shake test) Source 3 In general, the air pocket in an egg gets bigger as it gets older due to the permeability of the shell. I think the shake test is a little hinky, unless it actually sounds like water sloshing. I would try the float test; fill a bowl ...

Oh dear. I wish I could answer this more anonymously. I am notorious among my friends and family for drinking old coffee left in the mug in the center console of the car, often for a week or more. Coffee is safe to drink , as far as I ma concerned, as long as there are no fuzzy things growing on it .Today is Wednesday. At present I am drinking a mug of ...
