comment Relating the Color of meat to doneness
I think this is too broad a question.... What type of meat, what cooking method, external color or internal color, what type and/or how long was it aged....?

comment Why don't oyster crackers contain oysters?
As with many things, the origin of the term "oyster cracker" is unclear, but it may be that they were originally served with oyster stew or clam chowder or merely that they look like an oyster in its shell.

comment Why potatoes need to be boiled in order to make alcohol?
@logophobe My understanding is that rum can be made from either molasses, sugar, or sugar cane juice but, technically, has to be aged in oak barrels to classify as rum. There are also significant differences in the distillation processes used for rum and vodka.

comment Why potatoes need to be boiled in order to make alcohol?
Correct. Since molasses, as well as sugar and malt syrup, are already simple sugars they can be used without needing the enzymatic Mashing-in step. You would just add together the molasses, yeast, and water and allow the yeast to do its job producing alcohol.

comment Why potatoes need to be boiled in order to make alcohol?
Molasses can be used as a sugar source instead of potatoes, corn, or malted grains; but it should not be used as a replacement for malted grains used during the Mashing-in process. The process used to make molasses uses heat well above that which destroys the enzymes necessary to break down the potato starches during Mashing-in.
