comment What kind of foods react with aluminium pressure cookers?
If I understand your first paragraph right, you're suggesting that aluminium is a poor vessel for pressure-cooking because of higher cooking times. Is that right? Then why, coupled with your third point, is it such a common choice for pressure cookers? Is it just plain economics?

What medium of coconut do you use -- dried? Liquid from a can? It sounds like something worth making.

This is actually a really decent answer. "Nuke it to soften it, blend it in a blender, and mix with cream-cheese to make truffles. Roll in powdered sugar."

@Jefromi I think a synonym would be good, because it's non-obvious. I'll bring it up on meta.

@Jefromi I wasn't aware that badge exists. I don't usually delete my answers. I just tell people to DV if they disagree (since that's what DVing is for).

Maybe. Granulated is what I use too (finely chopped, from a bottle) and it burns fast. Doesn't generate much smoke though.
