Site/community/mod philosophy: I fight for the users. (and also the site.)

Eating philosophy: yum, everything tastes so good. I'm originally from Texas, so I do love my Mexican food and barbecue, but I love just about everything else too.

Cooking philosophy: enjoy yourself! Don't measure unless you need precision, don't rush if you've got time, taste everything, and make enough for leftovers.

comment Is it safe to leave a broth simmering overnight on an electric stove?
Cool. Perhaps you could edit your answer to quote from and link to that, so people get the authoritative information just from your answer?

This would be a lot more convincing if it weren't third-hand. The way it's written, it could easily just mean she being overcautious to avoid accidentally doing something her husband might think was unsafe.

Have you tried it without rinsing, to see if that's even better?

comment What is the impact of repeated cooling and reheating of maple syrup?
@LaurieHansen I think this answer makes it pretty clear it needs to be heated to be sure it's safe; you may just have gotten a bit lucky.

comment Fat sinking to bottom of stock
Should be pretty easy to tell if it's actually fat! Scoop some out and see, then maybe you can give more details to help people answer?

comment What's the correct way to garnish with greens?
If you do need a bunch of little pieces, make sure it's dry, so it doesn't clump up - maybe that's part of the OP's "hedge trimmings" problem?

Are you trying to make it safe at room temperature?

comment Definition of a “half glass?”
You'd get better answers if you included more of the recipe, so people could get a better idea which of these suggestions is right. (The first comment suggests 50-88mL, the second suggests 30mL, and the third suggests 118mL, a pretty huge range.)

comment Are can openers like the original Swing-A-Way sold under a different name now?
I think we can safely assume that when the OP says "I don't know if X is true" they're asking if it's true; I've edited and won't vote to close. (Of course if that's not what you meant, let us know.)

comment Should I refrigerate hot sauce?
@GdD If you can find a duplicate to propose, awesome, but otherwise, I'd say if it's worth an answer-in-a-comment it's worth an answer.
