Software engineer by trade but I came to Seasoned Advice independently of Stack Overflow.

I'm interested in bread, sous-vide, food preservation, dairy, and trying new food.

comment How can you make gelatin at home?
The question is specifically about how to make gelatin for desserts. Presumably the author knows to boil bones. The question is how to purify it for sweet applications. This answer doesn't seem to answer the question at all.

comment Is wood a good alternative to charcoal for bbq fuel?
That sounds very tasty. I'm going to have to try throwing some lavender on the coals next time! I'm not sure I'd call 15 minutes "slow cooked" though.

comment Use the same cast iron skillet or buy a new one for desserts?
Scrub the pan with salt, rub it with oil, and let it heat on the burner until the oil is "dry". No fishy flavor can survive that treatment. The oils all break down and polymerize.
