    While white chocolate contains no cocoa solids, it is still made of an ingredient that was taken from cocoa beans, so saying that it isn’t “chocolate” is just semantics taken from food regulations.

    We don’t say a tomato is a vegetable because the government taxes it as such, we call it a fruit because that’s what it IS.

    I think this azeotrope argument is wrong. to my knowledge unless you start out with more than about 96% alkohol in the pot you shold expect the alkohol to be boiled off before all liquid is vaporized.

    Well, I’ll be… I always thought the red liquid in meat was blood. But now that I think about it, that would be awfully thin blood. Also interesting about cooking with alcohol. I didn’t know the size of the pot or pan mattered.

    Very interesting!

    Did anyone proof read this? Hard to understand many statements in this mishmosh. Poor grammar/spelling, punctuation, and repetitive phrases are not getting your points across as well as you think.
