Looking for your picks for gluten-free bagels in New York City. Thanks!

I have coeliac disease and therefore on a strict gluten-free diet. I've also quit drinking alcohol and am currently happily trying out various alcohol substitutes (my current favourite being Seedlip) but am having trouble figuring out whether one that I want to try, Whissin, contains gluten.

My mission: make my Dad the best Florentines ever, for Christmas // I'm looking for: your best recipes, tips and techniques to make delicious, flavoursome Florentines // Dad loves: dark chocolate, the flavour of toasted almonds // Dad doesn't do: chunky nuts (his teeth are dodgy), hard or very chewy toffee (thin, crisp toffee is okay), dried apricots // Bonus question: how far ahead can I make Florentines, without compromising flavour or texture?

We boughta can of gulabjamun, never having had it before, so I don’t know what it should look like. Floating in the can were some yellowish bits. I am hoping they are solidified ghee but would someone please reassure me we’re not going to get botulism? Pictures.
Due to a Christmas Gifting Mishap that affected my extended family, I have 50 small fresh oysters in my fridge right now. What should I do with them? [more inside]
Seeking meal plan sites that will help with the whole "here's your recipes for the week plus a shopping list" thing - but with options that's more than just Northern Hemisphere White People Food. [more inside]
After following the sage Mefite advice from my AskMe a few months ago, I am moving in the coming weeks! Now, however, I am faced with the fact that there are many foodstuffs that won't be as easy to procure where I'm headed. So I'm looking for help crowdsourcing a shopping list. [more inside]
Due to an online shopping error, I am in possession of a couple dozen overripe bananas. I have a favorite banana bread recipe, but can only take so many loaves to work! I am thinking of a batch or two of muffins but I'd like some other banana-full recipes. I have seen this and this previously but am not looking for smoothie/frozen/fried/single-banana recipes. Any alternate suggestions for overripe bananas are welcome (e.g., can I polish my silver or use them to condition my dog's fur?) Thank you!
My girlfriend and I have just accidentally eaten some slightly undercooked beans. On a whim I looked it up and discovered that undercooked beans can make you violently ill. I have PTSD from being violently ill several years ago. Is there any chance that we won't be sick? [more inside]
At the grocery store today I saw two cartons of cream side-by-side. One was half & half cream and labelled 10% milk fat and the other was light cream and labelled 5% milk fat. The light cream also stated it had "33% less fat than our 10% cream". Shouldn't that be 50%? Picture of the cartons in question. [more inside]
I would like to make vegetable soups this year. Recommend any primarily-vegetable soup - I cook mostly vegetarian but sometimes cook with meat for holidays. [more inside]
After a friend introduced me to the Feast of 7 Fishes for Christmas Eve, i enjoyed restaurant versions of the dinner for several years. Last year I decided to cook one of my own. I was pleased enough with the results to try again this year and started wondering if there are any seafood desserts. Google searches mostly point to desserts deemed suitable for a fish dinner, or the dessert menus at seafood restaurants. Can anyone recommend an actual seafood dessert recipe?
What's a good filling to mak with the following ingredients? [more inside]
I'm making linzer cookies for an office cook swap (they are due a week from Friday). I've never made them before and was planning to use the Serious Eats recipe, but is there a different one I should be using instead? [more inside]
What is this seed-like object in my Indian pickle? Here are two pics of them, one pic with one of them cut open. To splurge, I go to a local Indian restaurant (Chaat House in Redmond, WA). There, no matter what I get, I get the achaar, which is a sour Indian pickle. I love it so. It usually contains some ingredients that I recognize, like mango and hot pepper. However, there's always this small, green, hard object, that I've ignored - until now. [more inside]
The Governor of Tennessee's Roast Apple Boar! That's a made up dish. But do you have a stellar recipe for an entree that includes apples? [more inside]

We eat a lot of honey at our house, particularly in tea. Larger containers cost less per ounce, but generally lack a handy pour spout that are found on smaller containers. With that, what are good honey pots or dispensers? Honey pots with little serving utensils/spoons look cute but sticky, while honey dispensers that pour from the bottom look nice but I'm concerned they'd leak a lot between the holder and mug of tea. MeFites, what is best?
