comment Food Processor Feeder Tube Hole - What Is It Called and How Does It Work?
rather than 3D printing, you can use a paper cup with a little hole in the bottom, and put it in/over the feeder tube. adjust size as necessary to get the right stream. dispose of properly.

comment How can you recognize cold milk that has gone bad or is about to?
you can't make 68% alcohol (136 proof) without starting with something stronger, or distilling/scrubbing it. you can start with 151 Everclear (75.5% ethanol), and dilute it 9:1 for 68%.

comment How to make the marshmallow swirl for Chocolate Marshmallow Ice cream from scratch?
Made this tonite with 3 packets at 13 minutes on high. came out very well. Put into a pastry bag with a wide tip and mixed with the ice cream that came out of the machine into a glass container, and it's now in the freezer. the rest went into a baking pan, just like Alton's video.

The results are in: I cooked the chicken in the same bath as the 72-hour ribs, and they were delicious. The ribs sat for another day, and they too were great.
