Just someone who likes to cook. I enjoy experimenting with canning and bread making, and trying all kinds of (vegetarian) cuisine. Currently into learning cheese making.

comment Does an avocado seed help guacamole stay green?
@Jefromi -- well, please check out the Serious Eats article I linked. Kenji found that citrus didn't noticeably deter browning on his guacamole. In fact, he found that in some cases, it actually seemed to speed up the browning. You could also just press plastic wrap along the top of your guac, and smooth out any bubbles, to achieve the "no air" environment, too. No submersing is necessary.

comment What's the proper way to muddle mint for a julep or mojito?
it's also key to leave half the lime in the drink. the lime peel's oils are key to the flavor. it takes up space, but it's worth it.
