comment Does honey actually tenderize meat?
Professor Google reports "Fresh Pineapple Juice contains an enzyme bromelain, which is a natural meat tenderizer. It is used in many commercial meat tenderizers. This enzyme is destroyed in the canning process, so canned Pineapple Juice won't work."

Consider Easter eggs, hard boiled & hidden until found & eaten.

comment What is the optimal concentration of sugar for baker's yeast?
Sounds academic, as fast fermentation is in most cases undesirable. Sugar water only, would make for an expensive, tasteless alcohol. Starting volume of yeast, temperature, and circulation will have an effect, and access to air can yield you vinegar.

comment Steel honing rod vs ceramic honing rod
A word to the wise. Don't let anyone else use it. I had a friend destroy an excellent cutting tool. He was unaware of its value and/or its proper use.

comment What is a good method to clean stainless steel hot water pot?
If it's enamel, paint stripper should work (Strypeeze). If a layer of grease or oil oven cleaner should remove that layer. A "Scotch-Bright Paint & Varnish Remover" for an electric drill (maroon color) saves much labor.

A cloth held in a strainer removes many solids. A coffee filter even more.

comment Temperature of electric burners
Temperature rises until energy input equals energy loss (balance). So burner temperature will be lower when an object (a pan) conducts energy away.

comment Water Exploded in Microwave
It is more likely the container broke than the water flashed to steam, as the rotating base keeps enough agitation in the water. Tilt the unit and keep the door open to let it dry out. If the flashing inside deposited carbon in inaccessible areas, it may be easier to replace the unit than taking it apart to clean.

comment How to bake bread and desserts without an oven?
A method used on sailboats for baking bread without an oven, is to use a pressure cooker on a stove top. Google should have examples/instructions/recipes.

Pre measure the ingredients as seen on TV food shows. That speeds the processing time and reduces chances of error do to interruptions.

comment How to reproduce charcoal flavor in steaks and burgers from restaurants
I may be the condensed vapor from the burning of the grease dripping from the meat being cooked. Cooking with gas over Lava rocks could verify that.

comment Soda carbonation
The less space left (liquid to cap) the faster the carbonation brings the contents to pressure, and the yeast dies.
