Damage to Slow Cooker

I bought a new slow cooker a few weeks ago, and each time I've use it the coating on the inside of the pot has changed colour, as if heat is damaging it. Can anyone explain what's happening? I'm a bit worried I'm going to be poisoned by it, so I've stopped using it. Here's a photo. [more inside]

Bean safety

I canned some green beans about a month ago. Is it a problem if the beans are poking up above the liquid? When we initially canned them the beans were below the liquid and the beans were floating. Now they're not floating, and the liquid level has lowered. The lids are all secure.

So am I vegetarian now?

This sounds like a dumb question I know. Lately I've had more concerns about meat. Is this what it can feel like or how it started for you? I'm not sure how to sort my feelings. [more inside]

Self-contained foods

I like empanadas, hand pies, tamales, burritos, and other food that's encased in something starchy. I shouldn't eat (much) wheat. What else should I try making? [more inside]

Where can I find spumoni in Manhattan?

Preferably a mix of chocolate, mint, rum, pistachio, and anything else. Candied fruit optional. Not that crap sold by Dreyer's/Edy's! If necessary I'll take the subway. I would tell you how delicious this is, but I want it all for myself!

What was the price of a 7-Eleven SlurpeeĀ® in the early 1970's?

I vaguely remember there being two sizes of Slurpee when I was a child. Also, did it cost more for the plastic specialty cups?

Perfect lunch quest

I'm looking for delicious and interesting recipes that make 4-8 servings, freeze excellently, and incorporate inexpensive cuts of meat and non-starchy vegetables. Rather than finding a few favorites and rotating them, I get bored. I do like new twists on old classics. In the past I've had good luck with just about anything involving chicken thighs in some kind of flavorful sauce or braise, brisket, goat stew, chilis, etc. [more inside]

What are some great Clinton Hill / Fort Green restaurants?

Brooklyn food filter: I'm pretty close to Pratt in Clinton Hill, and looking for a place to do my birthday dinner with friends. I'd like it to be walkable, so let's say within a mile. I like pretty much everything - so type isn't a concern - but I'd like for it to be a sit-down restaurant. Preferably not too fancy. 15 to 30 dollars a plate would be the ideal range. I'm new to the neighborhood, so I'm open to all kinds of suggestions - even if I don't use them for this meal, it will be nice to know in the future.

Yet Another "Can I Eat This?"

I purchased an entire bushel of delicious freshly roasted Hatch chilis. And then left them overnight on the kitchen table. They're in the frig now ... I'd been planning to freeze them and make chili later. Sigh. How risky is this? I wouldn't serve them to anyone else now. Or do I need to kiss that $25 (and those delicious chilis) goodbye?

Does this Lutti candy contain hazelnuts?

I can't find any information about this candy, apparently called Noiset'Or. Here's a photo of the wrapper. My son, allergic to walnuts, pecans, and hazelnuts, is having a reaction and I would like to know if this is the culprit. It's the last thing he ate. Thanks for any help recognizing or finding info on this.

Cooks of MeFi: Can this recipe be right?

So I've been to the place that serves these amazing jackfruit sliders, and I'm excited that they shared the recipe and I can try them at home. But three tablespoons each of cumin and coriander for 16 ounces of jackfruit? That seems a little crazy to me. Can it be right? I have the ingredients ready to go and I can stay at home for the hours of cooking, so I'd really like to make them today, which means I can't contact them and ask.
