    Draining, rinsing then adding water

    I saw the recipe below. Why does it say the tin of black beans should be drained and rinsed if we're going to add 6 tbsp of water. Would it not be better to just retain the water in the tin of beans? Black Bean Brownies with Chia Seeds Recipe Black Bean Brownies with Chia Seeds | Thrivo UK...

    Fruit Flavored Water That Doesn’t Taste Like Fruit

    I bought a six pack of each of these over the weekend. Don’t they look delicious? I was imagining an explosion of fruit flavor, just like the actual in season blueberries and watermelon. Instead, as usually happens, it was not quite that. The blueberry tasted like they might have floated some...

    Hard Boiled Eggs...Without Water

    I know that the eggs can't technically be hard boiled if they aren't cooked in water, but I just read this technique to cook eggs in the oven and achieve the same result: The No-Pot, No-Water Way to Make Hard-Boiled Eggs Really, this is something I would probably never do. It takes much longer...

    Living near water

    I've always lived near a river and/or the sea. It's pretty easy in the UK, this being a small island surrounded by the sea and with lots of rivers. Even when I've not lived by the coast (as I do now), I've been close to a river. Even when I lived in Eritrea, the Red Sea was about half a mile...

    Question: How Much Water?

    Question: Being lost in the desert or adrift at sea in a raft, you have food in the form of a sealed box containing vegetables, but your water was lost. Which vegetables would you want in that sealed box?

    Recipe Fruit Flavoured Water Kefir

    Kefir or kephir, is a fermented milk drink similar to a thin yogurt that is made from kefir grains. The drink originated in the Caucasus, Eastern Europe and Russia, where it is prepared by inoculating cow, goat, or sheep milk with kefir grains, but being allergic to all things dairy, I have...

    Water Kefir

    By chance I have just landed on some water kefir grains free of charge (they are a few days out of date). Has anyone ever made water kefir? I drink the bottled stuff all the time, but due to my dairy allergy obviously can't have the normal dairy based kefir so this was an opportunity not to...

    Birch Water

    What is she going on about? I know what you're thinking but whilst I was looking for something to drink, I came across Birch Water. I can't say that I was overly impressed. I used to tap our own beech trees in spring and got a much nicer drink. Had anyone else tried it?

    Saffron turns water green

    I've been cooking with saffron on and off for years. I just got some at Whole Foods and noticed that some of the threads become clear, devoid of any color. In addition, it turned the water green. Is this normal?

    Infused water

    Does anyone make their own infused water? I know a couple of members make their own sparkling waters, but does anyone use flavoured infusions? Flavoured water seems quite popular, but last week I spotted a bottle of rosemary infused water in a supermarket - for £2.50! A couple of weeks...

    Filtering water

    Hi all, Probably one of the most important things to consider, before we even get to discussing food, is the quality of water we consume - whether we drink it, cook with it, rinse food with it etc. I'm sure the water quality we have access to will vary based on where you all live. For me...

    How much water do you drink?

    Do you drink water every day? I have to confess I rarely drink it on its own. I drink it in tea or occasionally coffee but that is all. I recently read a interview with a celebrity who said she drank two litres of water per day. I think she thought it was 'healthy'. Is drinking water really...

    Infused water

    I have gotten on an infused water kick. I started with a cucumber infusion. Really nice. Refreshing and bright. I tried peaches but did not get much flavor. A strawberry/raspberry infusion was next. Yummy! Both tart and sweet. Cucumber/Ginger had all of brightness of the cucumber with...

    Tea-kettles and coffee makers and water

    @morning glory asked in another thread if electric tea kettles were common in the US. I can't speak for the entire US because we are such a varied country. First, I want to address the water issue. In some parts of the US, the water is almost undrinkable. Out here, we have water stores. We...

    Hardness or softness of water

    I've just come home from a weekend at my parents and the thought struck me how quickly I'd got used to their hard water. We have very soft water and one of the first things I did was wash up a water bottle and a flask, but I squirted far too much washing up liquid in and I had to rinse...

    Your Drinking Water

    I'm curious about your drinking water. Personally I have lived more than half my life on a private water supply which means that I am more than used to untreated water. Usually it has been through a sand trap to filter out larger debris but it remains untreated. When I lived in the Lake...
