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.

comment Fixing Sticky Seasoning on Cast-Iron Pan
If you don't already use one, I highly recommend using a turner instead of a spatula. Using a rounded-edge spatula causes uneven pitting and wear on the skillet. These straight-edged turners smooth it out and will help preventing stick spots. For example: amzn.com/B002CJNBTE

comment Can I use this dutch oven on a grill or camp fire?
+1 on this not being for campfire cooking. There are ovens designed specifically for this (namely not enameled) purpose. They last forever and might be a good investment here: lodgemfg.com/Logic-camp-dutch-ovens.asp

That looks like bacon but it won't taste much like it.

comment How can I make coffee with a minimum of equipment and maintenance?
This is a good answer. The Chemex coffeemaker is considered to be the best way to make drip coffee by many connoisseurs, and it's essentially the same thing, though they make high quality filters for it. chemexcoffeemaker.com

comment What are some vegan thickeners for beverages?
Thanks for the advice. I eat chia often mixed into drinks, but they don't completely dissolve into a smooth consistency. I'm looking for something smoother. I'm experimenting with guar gum now.

comment Do flax seeds lose any of their nutritional benefits if cooked?
Yes, I make that myself. I often drink it with lime, agave and chia after working out. It works for the Tarahumara!

revised Do flax seeds lose any of their nutritional benefits if cooked?
the question should be a bit more general ("cooked" vs "in muffins") and a bit more specific ("nutritional benefits" instead of "properties")
