comment What oil to use when cooking steak, and what difference does it make?
The steak cooks faster and the outside overcooks less, i.e. you get a juicer steak because of less moisture loss and more even cooked steak. Modernist Cuisine recommends the same thing.

comment Can you make whipped cream with half and half?
Adding Lecithin will help stabilize the foam/cream. At least you can do a foam using only milk and Lecithin, so half and half and a small amount of Lecithin <1% should work also. The cream will probably be more foamy/airy and less creamy.

I have seen some recipes that state that they do not scale, especially when using volume, but wondered why.

Define non-uniformly, if you mean linearly by weight I guess most scale 'uniformly', except things that is applied to the surface e.g. marinades, breading and so on.

comment Can you pickle avocados?
Aaronut, I do not think PH would matter that much, Dates is 6.5 - 8.5, much higher than Avocado 6.3 - 6.6 according to engineeringtoolbox.com/food-ph-d_403.html and can be pickled. Not a fruit (obviously :-)) but herring is Ph 6.1 and fat 16% so from a content point of view very close to Avocados values and is commonly pickled in Scandinavian countries. So neither fat or Ph seams to be an issue. (Sorry I do not have reputation enough to comment above where this comment should be).

Ali, maybe that is just this recipe, I have never tried to eat fridge pickles after 1 day, maybe it is OK, just better after a few weeks?
