comment How to freeze cabbage?
@Rob I've found it works better with the fleshier varieties, such as a pointed cabbages. Savoy cabbage I tend to blanch, and make up as bubble & squeak, which can be kept in the fridge for a few days or frozen for a bit longer.

comment What's the difference between bacon and gammon?
For me, ham is cooked, cured pork, which can be cooked on the bone (most supermarket delis tend to stock some on the bone for hand-carved ham)

comment The difference between green, red and yellow bell peppers
@ceejayoz You'd better correct Wikipedia as well: en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_pepper "Cultivars of the plant produce fruits in different colors, including red, yellow and orange. The fruit is also frequently consumed in its unripe form, when the fruit is still green"

comment How do you clean a pizza stone?
My pizza stones explicitly say to never use water on them, as it can cause them to shatter in the oven. The other safety option is to put them in a cold oven, and let them come to temperature so any trapped moisture escapes gradually.
