@NRaf The heated salt absorbs the sticky oil which has not polymerised fully, and any other sticky impurities stuck to the surface.

In many parts of the world, Wiener Schnitzel is beef flank or sirlion pulled apart along the grain to make large thin steaks, it does not require pounding if done properly

comment Charles Darwin high altitude cooking of potatoes
Not having a pot lid would be a 2°C to 5°C drop at least, depending on pot shape and wind etc

@papin We certainly are, just that too many SA users don't have a sense of humour. How sad!

comment How are crisp flavours made?
@Eugene Petrov I have seen it in powder form! Not in the industry, so may have been mistaken? For a strong vinegar powder as in "salt and vinegar" crisps, a more popular choice is sodium acetate, which is the result of a basic baking soda and vinegar reaction, which you can make at home from the dried crystals of that reaction

@Eugene Petrov Commercial acetic acid is called Glacial acetic acid, it is shipped in water tight drums (25 Kg typically) as it is extremely hygroscopic. It is easier to spray onto crisps if kept in powder form. You only need a small amount (around 50 mg) to flavour a whole bag of crisps
