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")

comment Could coconut cream be used to create a non-dairy ganache for whipping?
I don't know how well it would whip, but this recipe has a good non-dairy ganache glaze made with soy creamer. I tried it and it tasted great (thekitchn.com/bittersweet-baking-finalist-6-42089)

comment What are some vegan thickeners for beverages?
Yes, the effect I'm looking for can be achieved without much fat, as in the Bolthouse Farms product which is quite low in fat (3.5g per 8oz, much lower that dairy cream). Also I looked at McDonald's shakes ingredients and they have a lot of guar gum as well as carrageenan of cellulose gum. In smoothies, bananas can give the effect, but they wouldn't work for this application because they have flavor. On the other hand peanut butter, which is fatty, contributes more oiliness than smooth thickness like a shake. However emulsifier and stabilizers may be used instead or in additon to thickeners.
