comment When should I press garlic and when should I chop it?
Slight niggle on flavour. If you chop garlic, you will cut through cells, releasing more flavour. If you crush, you will leave more cells intact, resulting in a milder flavour.

comment What kind of homemade sandwich bread or wrap lasts longest?
I checked two UK supermarket loaves. A big brand white sliced contained "Antioxidant: Vitamin C". A multigrain sliced bread contained "Preservative: Calcium Propionate", which is a mould inhibitor. Both will contain a lot of salt, which will act as a preservative. For the OP's purposes, I'm thinking less about the healthiness of the additives, than of their availability for home cooking.

comment What is the liquid ingredient in a korma?
Oil is a liquid. And (in real peanut butter) it's peanut oil from the nuts themselves. It's true that in the US a lot of peanut butter has the peanut oil swapped out for palm oil.

comment How do I make meringue using a whipped cream charger?
It's not just that it takes more air. It's that the beating process denatures the egg proteins, creating the structure necessary to hold in all that air.
