comment Should Chorizo Be Peeled Before Cooking?
Judging from some of the other answers, there are several distinct things being called Chorizo here. The stuff I buy usually is loose, without casing. After it gets a little on the old side, the butcher puts what's left through his casing machine, and still calls it Chorizo. It's still mushy. Sounds like some Chorizo makers actually let the stuff in casing dry some as well. Ahh, I see Dave Griffith's got this as well.

comment How long can I store cooked lentils?
I use my vast collection of ice cube trays to freeze things such as lentils or pesto into easily baggable, easily portionable cubes. Want a little? thaw one cube. Want a lot? Thaw twenty cubes.

comment How do I cover up the white spots on my cast iron stove?
Have you tried firing up the stove? That should burn off any organic matter left by the peaches and olive oil, and iron is naturally blackish.

comment Is this moldy vinegar salvageable?
That is a ton of mold, at least. It shouldn't grow that well in vinegar. Looks like maybe the pH is wrong. Have you tryed pouring a bit of the liquid over baking soda? Does it even bubble?

comment Why did my meringue deflate and go soft?
Cream of tartar? It's a stabilizer. Didn't add the sugar too early or too quickly? That can lead to an unstable foam. Eggs too fresh? Day too humid?
