comment homemade mint extract
The term for boiled mint leaves is "mint tea" and it's goddamn delicious. I wouldn't store it past usual tea storage though.

comment How do you thicken a cold filling?
Cornstarch may help, and homemade marshmallows are commonly dusted with it, so it wouldn't be an odd addition.

comment How to thicken marinara sauce?
Water is the sauce killer. If you can somehow avoid putting it in in the first place, that'd be nice, but otherwise, a good long simmer is the best method.

comment How long will grease (from bacon or roast) keep in the fridge?
@sean: I'm sure it can go bad...I've just never seen it. Joy of Cooking states that bacon grease can be kept "indefinitely" which is somewhat surprisingly indefinite for such a widely circulated cookbook.

comment Are there alternatives to okra as a thickening agent?
Frozen okra is perfectly acceptable for a gumbo or stew. It's very unlikely anyone will be able to tell the difference, and yea, even in the south, fresh okra's not that great year round.
