comment How to decide how much to dilute extremely hot chillis
@Ecnerwal I have 2 of these peppers. I will be deseeding (and keeping the seeds for growing later). I have it under good authority that they are indeed very hot.

comment Can I boil water to temperature lower than 100 Celsius / 212 Fahrenheit to make a tea?
Perhaps experiment with how to cool the boiling water down faster? Eg. if you poor it slowly in a thin stream (increasing surface area and thus cooling it down faster). Or prep some pre boiled water and store that in a bottle.

comment How to use and store galangal?
@Jolenealaska To me galangal tastes nothing like ginger. It's also more pungent. I think the aroma really adds to the final product. I think the best way to show yourself is to take a recipe that originally calls for galangal - thai red curry paste, tom yum, sayur asam, sayur lodeh - and substitute with ginger. It may taste OK, but you'll immediately find that something is not quite right.

comment How to use and store galangal?
I grew up in SE Asia and I have never known galangal to ever be a substitute for ginger or visa versa. I've tried it on occasion and found it to be a bad idea.

comment choosing a red food color for red velvet cake
If you are going the colouring route, have you tried powdered food colours? They keep their colour better than liquid colours.

comment How to protect honey jar from ants?
In my grandmothers old house, she used to have a cupboard on legs where all the attracting foods went into. It was placed a few centimetres away fem the wall and all four legs were placed in little metals bowls with water in them. Never saw an ant in there.

comment Where to find a large individual brownie pan?
@bbeckford I too like brownies that are all edges. As jolenealaska pointed out you can get one online, and I suspect your local kitchen wares store sells a similar pan. However if you have a muffin pan, try your recipe in that first. Mine taste good, but the edges did not turn out how I hoped.

@rumtscho Asian grocer? I know in various parts of SE Asia, we can get Ajinomoto brand MSG in large jars or packets.

comment Avoid ice crystals in frappuccino
Xanthan Gum is sometimes used as a gluten substitute for things like bread. If your supermarket has a health food isle with gluten free foods, you may find it there.
