An international group of horticulturalists has published an extensive study in the “Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences” looking at the effects of refrigeration on” flavor” compounds in tomatoes.
They say: “Chilling fruits at temperatures below 12 degrees Celsius hampers enzymes that help synthesize flavor-imparting volatile compounds, resulting in relatively fresh but insipid fruits.” Read on
Frying at home gets a bad rap. It’s easy to see why—the fear of sputtering hot oil or under-cooked food is enough to give even the most confident home cook pause. But with the right equipment, making a recipe like the easier fried chicken is a straightforward process that hinges on keeping both the oil at the right temperature and an eye on the clock.
The following fried chicken recipe works:
To season the meat and ensure it turned out juicy, we soaked chicken parts in a buttermilk brine (buttermilk heavily seasoned with salt). We also incorporated baking powder, an unconventional ingredient in fried chicken, into our dredging mixture (flour seasoned with garlic powder, paprika, and cayenne pepper). As the chicken fries, the baking powder releases carbon dioxide gas, leavening the crust and increasing its surface area, keeping it light and crisp. And while most dredging mixtures contain purely dry ingredients, we added a little buttermilk to our mixture because the small clumps of batter it forms turn ultra-crisp once fried.

A few words to share with our fellow singers, musicians and aspirants
Oh, say can you sing…
Q: How do you prepare to sing the anthem?
A: I go over the words constantly in my mind, because the last thing I want is to be an ESPN highlight of a guy who forgot the words to the anthem. The rhyming scheme of the anthem is so strange because [it] is not even every other line. It’s every other phrase. You can get really confused quickly. And you’ve got 30,000 people who all think they know the words, and they will all know the one you miss. Read on
