comment Making yogurt without heating milk?
This is very true. HTST pasteurization, which is the most common in regular milk, only heats to 160F. Not hot enough to denature albumin proteins. UHT, on the other hand, is heated to 275F. More than hot enough. UHT in fact makes fantastic yogurt.

comment Giant Cream Puff shells
Did you try using a lot more dough in each portion? It seems like a silly question but I don't see how they could turn out small if you used a mound of dough. Maybe not fluffy or crisp but not small.

comment Is there any good way to check for honey adulteration besides a lab test?
Is there some other reason to want to filter out the pollen? Otherwise couldn't a country just ban a honey if the markers were missing? There would be no reason for local produces to remove the markers.

comment Which meat tastes different by gender?
You do make a good point though. I don't have any experience with bulls. Do they also get musky? If so then it might be common to the order- which includes a great deal of our mammalian livestock and hunted meat.

comment Which meat tastes different by gender?
@jbcreix- I've never heard that. They are all under the order Artiodactyla. Cattle and goats are together in the family Bovidae. Thus, cattle are no closer to deer than goats are. Goats, while not closer to deer taxonomically, are much more similar in behavior than other ruminants as goats are also agile browsers and not heavy grazers.

comment Which meat tastes different by gender?
I disagree. My roosters and hens, when the same age, have very similar flavor. Historically roosters were different because they were much older with all the changes that come with age.

Looks like it matches the description except that it was in an Indian restaurant and this is Thai.

comment Baking granbarksost ( spruce bark cheese) (Brie) with little mould
Where did you read this? Normal brie is very moldy. It's a puff ball of mold that gets smashed when packed to form the rind. Is the mold you are seeing different than the mold that made the brie what it is?

comment Is it okay to use stainless steel in oven?
This answer seems a little too brief. Are you saying that 480F is hot enough to damage the stainless steel and that baking food in it would prevent this? (I presume moist food/steam keeping the temps down?)

comment Raised brown spots on garlic
@Escoce- That is an interesting idea. Is this just a theory or did you read it somewhere?
