There once was a man from the stix,
Who liked to write limericks.
But he failed at the sport,
Because he wrote them too short.

comment Eating mangoes with skin intact
I can confirm, from personal experience, that one can break out in a rash consistent with poison oak after working with mango skin. This happened after I cut up an Alphonso (?Ataulfo?) mango, but never happened when I cut up Haden/Tommy Atkins mangos. I am pretty sensitive to Poison Oak, and I now leave the mango cutting to my wife.

And it was very well written. I may have to try the more time intensive version some day...

comment Is it worth roasting my own red peppers?
@Jefromi You are correct that water cooks out, and BECAUSE of that the roasted peppers are even more of a deal (if the price/pound were the same, after roasting the fresh you'd end up with less product).

comment What are some tips for making Baklava?
@rumtscho Most of the recipes I've seen do not use multiple layers of nuts, and that is a difference. That said, I doubt it makes enough of a difference (if any) to warrant the effort.

The variation was the addition of red bell pepper - and a not-insignificant amount.

comment Is pyrex safe to use on a gas burner?
Question, why would you want to use a glass dish on the stove? Glass is a horrible conductor and you'd be wasting much of the heat from the burner...
