comment What makes a good vessel for storing sourdough starter?
"Metal" is not accurate. You probably don't want to use copper or aluminum, but you can store it in stainless steel without a problem. You can store things with even more acid than sourdough in stainless steel as well.

comment How can I stop fish from sticking to a stainless steel pan?
This isn't a direct answer so I'm making it a comment. If you are trying to avoid non-stick coatings, you should really consider getting a cast iron skillet. Their natural non-stick properties are very good (much better than stainless), they heat evenly and retain heat well, and are oven safe. Stainless is lighter and can be easier to clean (on account of being lighter) , but I use cast iron a lot more than stainless. Just don't use soap when cleaning.

comment How can I grind coffee without a coffee grinder?
+1 for having a friend do it or borrowing a grinder. If you really don't want to spend $20 on a cheap coffee grinder (which can also be used for spices!), none of these other methods are worth the effort.

@rumtscho There is no singular "American style" - New York/Brooklyn, Chicago, deep dish and New Haven are all examples of American styles. Here's an index where many different American styles are listed slice.seriouseats.com/archives/2008/01/…

comment How to clean mushrooms?
That's not strictly true. He says they absorb water, but not a lot of water. About .2 oz of water for 4 oz of mushrooms. And they don't absorb more water the longer they're soaked/washed.youtube.com/watch?v=AW9npAc2Sgw youtube.com/watch?v=6p7UcCAw39c

Wouldn't ground fresh ginger work well also? I find that it's got more kick than the powdered stuff.

comment Is it safe to reuse loose tea leaves the next day? What precautions need to be taken for storing tea for reuse?
@Marplesoft It turns out that discarding the first cup of tea is not an effective way to remove the caffeine, though this is a commonly repeated myth. It's been found that a 4min steep removes 60% of the caffeine, but that it takes 10-15min to remove 90-100% of the caffeine. source - chadao.blogspot.com/2008/02/… - another source - www2.hcmuaf.edu.vn/data/lhquang/file/Tea1/…

comment Is it possible to make soymilk without a “beany” taste?
I agree that the beany flavor may be what the soy milk machines were designed to produce, as this is what is typical in Asian soy milks. However, the question asker is asking how to make something not beany, which should be possible given that the commercial soy milk makers do it.
