comment Can you make popcorn in a pressure cooker?
I recall a MythBusters episode about popping corn (I think they were testing the final scene from Real Genius). They measured the explosive force of a kernel, and it's ability to expand. Turns out, popcorn won't pop if there's not available space. I'd expect higher external pressure to create the same problem. Ref: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/…

comment How do you add ingredients to fudge without stiring it?
I see. I was suspicious the vanilla should be added later, but using butter that way is interesting. Thank you for the insight!

comment Are there any scientific advantages to using a cork to stop a wine bottle?
@Aaronut The different perspectives I've seen from people about how wine should be stored, presented, served, etc. lend me to the conclusion there are at least as many viewpoints as there are wine drinkers. It's a massive discussion, which is impossible to distill into a few sparse paragraphs. I wanted to touch on enough of the other perspectives to help readers see some of the broader question. I do believe there is much more to food than the ingredients. I'm not particular to the "cork only" viewpoint, but I know lots of people who are.

@MissesBrown laugh I wasn't particularly comfortable tacking on my personal opinions, but after several paragraphs, some form of "conclusion" felt proper. But it's easily removed, especially as I don't think it added anything to my answer.

Removed needless personal opinions, removed references to another answer which has disappeared.

comment Is it okay to use aluminium foil instead of parchment paper while baking cookies?
I'll let others answer your direct questions; but different cookies have different "adherence" properties to their cooking surface, and you may experience more "bits of foil left on the bottom of the cookies" than you would with parchment paper. Depends on the cookies.
