If a piece of food suffers a direct hit by a lightning during a storm, it has elevated chance of being rendered unfit to consumption. Soups in metal pots when hit by a lightning might boil, explaining the bubbles.

comment What is ground beef?
Chopped is not the same, meat particles in minced/ground beef are much smaller than in chopped beef. Chopping can be performed with a chopping knife, and mincing cannot :)

comment Can vegetable enzymes kill yeast?
+1 for duplicate, and the problem is the same: yeast does not tolerate acidic environment very well. Maybe it is possible to add the acidic juices after the bread has risen?

comment Cure for burns from hot peppers / capsicum oil?
+1 for vegetable oil because vodka is 40% ethanol, very harsh for your skin. Capsaicin is soluble in most non-polar solvents, which includes both oils and alcohols.

Parmesan and Pecorino are made of different kinds of milk (cow and sheep respectively), so I posted a new question in case storage procedures for products from sheep milk differ from cow milk products.

comment Create hot “sauce” from capsaicin extract
@Marti thanks for the info. The numbers seem to be a bit high, but stil if you evaporate 60% technically you evaporate most of the alcohol :)
