    You know what I found out last night? Apparently each jalapeño varies in terms of its heat: even jalapeños from the same vine can vary by a significant factor.

    I recently read that the same is true with the caffeine content of coffee, even cups from the same pot can vary dramatically.

    Well it looks like I'm going to be putting up my buddy for ten weeks starting in september. It sounds fine, but I live in a shotgun style studio, I.E., one big room. And we would be having opposite schedules, so I would be coming home from work when he was trying to sleep.

    He's aware of all this and is a pretty laid-back guy with not a lot of needs, so I think it should be fine.

    okay let me rephrase

    I want a cheese that is less spicy than jalapeno jack

    adding jalapenos to another cheese is not going to give me that effect

    the jack itself is not spicy

    thank you for the suggestions, but I think my point was lost

    also, people outside the southwest use it as a universal signifier for "mexican food" and make some nasty shit

    if you ever go to an On The Border or its ilk in the northeast, expect to get cumin bombed

    steam the broccoli lightly first, and then add it to the soup at the very end

    there are two ways:

    1. use frozen broccoli

    2. steam the broccoli in the microwave beforehand and add it to the soup very very late. Just add it in while it's simmering: warm enough to spread the flavor but not hot enough to cook the broccoli any more.

    Right, I'm saying that we can assess things based on commonality and/or consequences.

    In other words, despite comments made about me to the contrary, I'm not going to defend any and all uncommon sexual practices or social behavior. Some things are clearly bad.

    Usually, what we're saying by "normal" is "benign" or just "okay." It's okay to be gay, for instance. We've decided this (for the most part) as a society because we know now that being gay is benign.

    every person who doesn't like an acquired taste always seems to think everyone who likes it is faking it. it should be an official fallacy.

    I am not super-hardcore about spicy stuff. I like a good hot sauce with a lot of heat, but I like to be able to taste both the sauce and the food it's on.

    Really, the best stuff I've found is Secret Aardvark out of Portland. But Tabasco is a fucking joke. You can basically drink it straight from the bottle.

    Steam the broccoli, and make the cheddar part of the soup separate. Serve the cheddar part of the soup, then toss in the broccoli. I guess it's more broccoli with a load of cheese sauce, but it still tastes good.

I was laying on the couch in my boxers watching some TV when I discovered that instead, my roommate had gone to meet his family for lunch and that they would then be coming to hang out at our place for a while. By his family I mean like, a lot of people, it was a bit embarassing.

    Now days I just walk around the apartment in my boxers all the time and my roommates can just deal.

    from what I understand this draws out the bitter taste

    Broccoli and cheese soup does not sound appealing. But I don't really like my soup world and my cheese world to mix.

    Unless we's talking some french onion soup. But that's a whole 'nother animal.

    I would be interested in a capsaicin extraction, just for novelty's sake. Maybe chop and dry some habaneros, soak in ethanol or even something like IPA or DCM. I imagine you could evaporate the latter two solvents and re-dissolve your impure capsaicin goo in a more edible solvent. D-Limonene is chemically similar to xylene and is nontoxic, but it would likely impart a bitter flavor to the extract. Doubt it would be noticeable though, since this stuff would certainly be active by the drop.
