    What's an obscene number of deviled eggs to eat in one earth day?

    ...A dozen? A dozen and a half?

    Like that's 6 and 9 since a "Deviled egg" is just one half of the white and yolk, right?

    Most canned cranberry sauces are just cranberries, hfcs / sugar, and water. There's plenty of pectin in the berries so no supplementary gelling agents need to be added. The acidity of the berries makes additional preservatives unnecessary. This isn't just the fancy ones, it's pretty much all of them. Oceanspray, store brand, etc. Cranberries aren't very expensive and they have a strong characterizing flavor that doesn't dilute easily. You just target a level of sweetness people will enjoy and you're done.

    In short, there's nothing canned cranberry sauce makers really can do wrong without actually increasing cost to fuck it up on purpose. Idk, like chu I think it can be fun to spice it how you like or watch the berries split and release their juices into the pot as it cooks, but there's simply not a compelling difference between what you'd make at home and what comes in a can to justify feeling any particular way about it.

    if you use canned cranberry sauce and it's the depulped, clear jelly one, it has to be served molded into the shape of a can

    I dont make the rules you just have to

    if you've made your own at home, please reserve a can for the purposes of molding it before serving

    the goal wouldn't be to necessarily change your behaviors- just to impart knowledge. i hate urban legends and superstitious rumors around food. some people say 'never do this, it'll make it runny/tough/dry' and they've never tested that. it's just inherited knowledge which they take as gospel. or they'll do this extra step- always brown this, make sure you give these ingredients 10 minutes to get to know each other in the pot, whatever. and probably the broadest, most high level bromide is- 'of course, if you have the time/energy/money, homemade is always better. but it's acceptable to...'

    and i just think that's trivially false. there are a huge number of foods where it genuinely is not better to do it homemade. but even if i convinced you of that, it wouldn't necessarily change the way you cook. i just like the idea of the knowledge being out there, competing with all the wive's tales.

    Honestly I feel like America's Test Kitchen is about halfway there with their deconstructions of exactly how and why certain steps are needed, and where you can cut corners.

    Making soda syrups at home is a fool's errand for example. The precision involved and the amount of science that has gone into emulsifying oil based flavors into a water based syrup is just something you'll never realistically accomplish in your home kitchen. It's not going to happen. Plus the ingredients involved have to be fresh and the process works overwhelmingly better at commercial scale.

    That said the fact that coke refuses to sell syrup to homes, and instead insists on bottling their product with water into wasteful, single-use containers is just like, some high bullshit. One of the poster children for how capitalism has utterly failed to capture external costs of manufacturing and we're going to destroy our entire planet because of it.
