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 Why are baking measurements such nice round numbers?
@mrwienerdog- true but the relative salt content doesn't need to be that exact. For example- my recipe calls for 2 Tbs for 6 loaves. I could go 1 Tbs either way and the bread will be fine. You can't change the flour or water by 50%.

comment How does one find recipes given an ingredient rather than the recipe name?
This is my favorite. Menu planning and the user ratings and reviews are very helpful.

comment Leek ashes - why?
In your reference someone gives instructions to make it. It sounds like it would be interesting to try.

comment What can I use instead of corn syrup?
This works. I have made pecan pie using a syrup similar to this one (just the sugar and water) and it worked very well.
