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.

comment Can I re-cook a ham that was left out overnight?
@brendan: Well, we do, but this isn't that kind of ham. Still, in this situation, the curing we do do, plus being cooked, plus the house being cool, I wouldn't have any problem eating it.

comment How long can you keep chocolate in the freezer?
@rfusca: Admittedly, if I had known they were that old, I'd probably have avoided them, but all I saw was a couple of big bags of berries...We'd been defrosting the thing for about a day, and they'd emerged from the glacier without me noticing, and I didn't want to put partly thawed berries in the other freezer, so, you know, pie. Then grandma staggers in and goes, "sniff sniff Smells like blackberry pie. Haven't had a blackberry pie since your granddad died. He picked all the berries." So I said, "So who picked these?" She looks at the label on the bag, "Your granddad." Me: "Oh."
