I've recently completed my MSc Computer Science from a UK institution, and have moved back to the US to begin work. I write in my spare time, enjoy cooking, and apparently am addicted to signing up for SE sites :).

@derobert Could the pizza stone he left in the oven have been to blame?

hmm, that's a good point. He brought it to 150 internal temp (was a beef roast), maybe our oven is running low.

He put it on the bed of potatoes and onions and poured some wine and vinegar over top, but it wasn't like, braised per se. In the oven, not a crockpot

@derobert It wasn't frozen. My husband did the cooking, he's relayed all this info to me, but I verified yet again and he said it's the right time and temp

comment Tartine + Sourdough Taste
So to clarify, you're looking for a yeasty, bread-like smell when it's mature?

Nobody's disputing that ethylene ripens bananas. The claim is that the tip of the stem is a significant enough source of ethylene that wrapping it tightly will prevent a banana from ripening.

Great, can you link to some of those studies? I keep finding the claim that it's been studied but I can't find proof.

comment Will MSG improve taste of a food for someone who dislikes the food itself or will it make it worse?
I've never heard any source for MSG doing anything besides bringing more umami to the party, though I'd be interested to find I'm wrong.
