comment How to cook chicken franks?
All sausages aren't cooked in the factory. If the OP is really talking about franks (hot dogs), they are, but sausage can come raw.

comment Thinning Tomato paste
+1 for the tomato puree. If you can't find a puree that meets your dietary needs, what about making your own from fresh tomatoes (since they are in season) and then freezing extra for use all year round?

comment Is it safe to reuse loose tea leaves the next day? What precautions need to be taken for storing tea for reuse?
I actually found a source that says you should store them in a MOIST medium in the refrigerator to inhibit the growth of pathogens. apartmenttherapy.com/reusing-tea-bags-the-good-the-128466

comment Does vanilla really bring out the flavour of other foods?
By "enhancing the overall flavor profile of the dish" I mean that it just adds more flavor and depth of flavor. By "actually bringing out the flavors" I mean that salt helps you taste other flavors.
