comment Is Consumer Reports really correct about 6 parts water to 1 part rice?
OK, Sorry @talon8! I'm not new to Stack Exchange but am new to this site. (New as in, haven't been able to think of questions and don't know enough to answer any :-) If this is OT I will gladly delete. It's not specifically a health topic, but it is somewhat.

comment Is lemonade better when made with simple syrup?
+1 for "this is why Southern-style Sweet Tea is sweetened while the tea is still hot" -- as a Northerner having relocated to the SOuth, I can tell you that "Iced Tea" up North is very different from "Sweet Tea" down here!
