comment Boiled water left in a Teflon pot
@sarge_smith Nice post, but one question. "You can use the same water in the pot for multiple boilings. Each boiling will kill off anything..." This may be correct, but do you know for sure that there are no heat stable microorganisms or toxins that could be a potential hazard here? Might be best to play it safe and recommend fresh tap water for every boiling unless you are certain.

comment How can I stop my eggs from cooking when I make lemon/lime curd?
-1 At 60ºC the curd will never thicken. Yes, McGee says that coagulation starts around 60ºC/140ºF (63ºC/140ºF for egg white and 65ºC/150ºF for the yolk). But he also notes that egg mixed with as much liquid and sugar as you need for a curd, raises the coagulation temperature to between 79 and 83ºC (175-185ºF). See McGee, On Cooking p93 (EGG-LIQUID MIXTURES/Dilution Demands Delicacy)

comment How do I remove bitterness from zucchini?
@rwong Salt does not simply "mask the taste". It also reduces perceived bitterness. You can confirm this yourself with any number of simple experiments. Try adding a small pinch of salt to your coffee. Bitterness is reduced without any noticeable saltiness.
