comment Can anyone tell me what kind of squash this is?
Looks like a marrow to me - essentially giant zuchini. They tend to not have as much flavour as a normal sized zuchini. I find stuffing them works quite well - e.g. a garlic lamb mince ball in the centre of the bulb end, roasted can be delicious

comment What's the proper way to dispose of used fats & oils?
This is a good idea. Keep a tin can next to the sink, pour any oils and fats into it. When its full, pop a load of nuts in, and put it in the garden. If its solid you should be able to pop it open.

Additionally sporting stores probably don't keep thier stuff as clean as a food prep place.

comment Which cuts of beef are suitable for slow cooking methods?
How slow do you mean? 45 mins is probably the shortest long cook, but 1 hour, 3 hours and 6 hours are all possible and effect the beef selection

comment What method of coffee preparation gives the most caffeine in the finished cup?
I do not believe its a duplicate question, that question focusses on maximising caffine by changing lots of things, bean, grind amongst others, while this question is trying to keep as much constant and observing its effect.

Perhaps the question should be what gives the highest caffeine concentration (mg/l)?

comment What method of coffee preparation gives the most caffeine in the finished cup?
The only method that is really time dependent is the french press (and possibly the aeropress depending on the exact technique used), everything else is a task that has a fixed end point, so maybe if the french press is eliminated it would make it easier?

comment What method of coffee preparation gives the most caffeine in the finished cup?
I suppose an assumption or simplification would be required. E.g. Time limit of 3 minutes brew time.
