comment First time dashi doesn't taste much
On that, I'd strongly disagree. If you add straight MSG to water, you will get almost no flavor benefit (even after adding salt), because aroma is the most important aspect of flavor perception. Without the glutamates and salt, you won't get a complete sense of flavor, but there are only a few distinct flavors the tongue is responsible for detecting, whereas the nose can detect thousands/millions of flavors. Kombu has a very complex aroma.

comment What ingredients can you have in Hot Sauce?
You probably would be well-served by consulting with a contract food manufacturer, which will have several food scientists on staff that can help provide accurate answers to food safety questions based on a proposed recipe. They can generally help you adjust your recipe to the desired degree of shelf-stability.

comment Making (or substitute for) ricotta cheese?
Loved sheeps milk ricotta cannoli when I had it though, so YMMV.

comment How can I improve the texture of my whole grain pancakes?
Are you using a powerful blender in the Vitamix/Blendtec tradition? If so, you could potentially grind the ingredients dry, though based on my experience grinding mochi rice it won't be as finely ground.

revised How long will Sake last in the fridge?
Corrected spelling of sake. (saki=previous in Japanese; sake=alcohol)
