I get paid for deeply embedded bit bashing, for wrangling SIP and MGCP conversations, and meeting hard real-time deadlines in design and code.

I post regularly to my blog, The Daily Build.

comment How can I mill / press sweet sorghum with household equipment?
Yes, I don't think there's a way around the "time consuming" aspect of it. Before processing through mesh/cheesecloth, I'd probably also give the juice time to settle so that you can pour off the liquid and hopefully leave behind some of the solids. I'd love to hear from someone (maybe you, Mark) who tries this to see how it works.

The other NE sugar "crops" I know are honey and maple. I'm interested to see what you find out here.

comment How much gluten will set off somebody's celiac disease?
As someone with food allergies (not celiac, though I've cooked for people with celiac), I'd suggest asking the guest what they need -- if this is at all possible. They can tell you what you should do to help keep them comfortable.

comment How briny should the water be when soaking broccoli to remove bugs?
@hobodave - It's not that gross... think about what they might be doing to grocery store broccoli to keep the bugs off.

comment Why do some recipes recommend Kosher salt?
As mentioned below, there is a difference health-wise. Kosher salt does not contain iodine.
