comment Cooking Potatoes
@rackandboneman Sorry. I wasn't being too clear. If there isn't enough liquid, or if the liquid is too thick for convection to happen, the food may not cook thoroughly/properly because the heat from the walls cannot be distributed.

comment Is cornstarch a less effective thickener when used with gelatin?
@Aaronut -- You have a very good point. When I said "boiling the heck out of them", I meant that they simmered (gently) for a REALLY LONG time (several hours, probably more than originally estimated). It wasn't a full rolling (violent) boil. At the end, I strained all the bits out and set it in the fridge overnight. The following day, I skimmed the fat off the top. I was left with a really solid (when cold) lump of turkey stock (or Turkey "Squeezin's" as we call them in my house).

@rfusca - I guess I forgot to mention that I'm gluten-free, so a roux won't cut it in my house

comment What cookbooks do you always come back to?
The Better Homes and Gardens New Cook Book is probably my favorite cookbook ever. I started reading it when I was ten, and it was my "cooking teacher". Once I got started cooking, I used it less and less, but it's still one of my reference books. I consult it from time to time for favorite recipes or ideas.
