comment Making stroopwafels with a pizelle iron
Hm, thank you! I am thinking it may be simpler to just use two wafels then as our iron makes incredible thin cookies. I'm thinking the only way I could split them is if I used our family's antique cast iron pizelle iron, but that requires constantly putting the iron in the oven OR over an open flame. Thank you so much for looking into it!

I'm not so much worried about holiday authenticity as I am about letting my wife remember our visit to one of our favorite places on earth for the holiday :)

comment Do I need special gloves for mozzarella stretching?
We usually use nitrile gloves because we have them on hand (they're basically hypoallergenic latex gloves). They don't provide any protection from heat though. I get your concerns though - it can be a hot for the hands. Usually I just suffer through it until it's done (it shouldn't be THAT hot and should cool quickly). You could always try layering them - get some work gloves from a car store and then latex or nitrile gloves a size or 2 larger than usual and put them over the work gloves. You'll lose some deftness but it should cut down on the heat.

comment Breaking down a turkey for storage - brine before or after freezing?
Thank you for the breakout! I ended up breaking down the birds and putting them right back into the freezer for later usage. I figure I can brine when I'm ready to use them and incur significantly less damage to the muscle tissue.

comment Any way to soften gummy candy?
Not quite what you asked, but if you don't mind changing them to a slightly more adult treat, you can put them in a bowl and add just enough vodka to cover them. Let them sit in the fridge for about 48 hours. The vodka will be absorbed, they will swell and be significantly softer. They'll also have a slight alcoholic kick that goes away over the next day or two as they cure.
