As that photograph indicates, the liver is (almost always) very dark and smooth.

comment Is there a device that can be used to grate coconut and sweet potatoes electrically?
These seems more than a little bit overkill. Yes, stand mixers are great versatile tools if you can spare the expense and the counter space; this guy just wants to grate coconuts. It's like recommending a propane torch to light a few birthday candles.

It's not electrical, but what about a mandoline with a julienne blade? It's pretty easy to get "grated" consistency from that, unless you're going for the really fine pulp-like consistency. And most of the good ones have a top piece that you can use to hold the thing you're grating, so there's no danger to your hands.

comment Is it possible to make a wheat free/gluten free/dairy free apple pie?
Strange, in every supermarket here, you can find lard (Tenderflake) right next to the shortening. I've never thought of it as a rare or ethnic ingredient.

Haha @yossarian, always a good idea to keep it simple on the first try! I'd still suggest trying some of his suggestions if you run into trouble next time.

Interesting, @yossarian: Did you also follow Michael's suggestions on how to incorporate more air? That could be part of the problem too.

comment Can I make Crème Brûlée using a flambé?
@chris: I made crème caramels for the same event, but I didn't flambé them. There's really nothing to flambé; as you've noted, the sugar is already turned into soft caramel.
