If you're worried about the lobsters feeling pain, I have a tip from the Galloping Gourmet: drown the lobster in a pan of wine before putting it in the water. Tastes good, too.

peace,

Indeed.  Though I did already know about a number of those.

Hmmm....hard to accept some of those.  No one will ever convince me, for example, that putting the pit in guacamole doesn't help it to stay green.  Not saying they aren't true....but....okay, I'm old.

You must scald milk before using it in certain recipes - No, but in many cases you need to gradually bring the temperature up to prevent curdling when adding it to other hot ingredients. Milk and Eggs especially. Usually to do this you add a small amount of the other hot ingredients to the eggs or the milk while stirring it well. Then add some more, etc etc until the temp is high enough not to cause thermal shock when adding it to the rest of the hot ingredients.

Just an FYI I picked up from watching too much Alton Brown.

Well, we're glad you're back. And I really love your signature line. Just in case I hadn't mentioned it before...
