comment How do I concentrate the flavor in orange juice?
I’m vegetarian, so I can’t speak for meatballs specifically, but English-style marmalades can work beautifully as a component or accompaniment of savoury dishes.

comment How can vegans alleviate the effects of spicy food?
As a slight variation on nut milk: horchata is very good for this (at least the Spanish kind, horchata de chufas; I’m not sure about the Latin American variants, which are quite different in composition but I’m told fairly comparable in taste).

Peanut butter is certainly very effective.

comment How to make sparkling powder for candy?
Just to add a small note: this is the UK sense of sherbet; in the US, sherbet more commonly means a frozen dessert similar to sorbet.

comment Will swapping the red wine in my spaghetti bolognese with port wreck the dish?
Leaving it out will make a much bigger difference to the taste than substituting port would.

comment How do you peel chickpeas?
@Jay: it’s absolutely because of gravity! It is indeed because the skins are less dense than water — but similarly, the fact an apple falls is because it’s more dense than air. The falling/rising, in either case, comes from the combination of gravity and the density difference. Fun fact: because of this connection, an old name for density is “specific gravity”.

comment Are Twiglets an “extruded snack”?
@Aaronut: This question was my attempt to phrase it in a way that would admit a clear and definitive answer — but yes, I’d certainly be interested in the more general questions “What exactly does extruded snack mean?” and “How are Twiglets made?”

comment Are Twiglets an “extruded snack”?
@Martha F. et al: thankyou! Reading around further, Cheetos and Cheese Puffs seem to be well-known US examples.
