Alcohol-free & Gluten Free?

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.

Can I eat it: Canned gulabjamun

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.

Help me make the ultimate international grocery list

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]

Favorite over-ripe banana recipes?

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!

Undercooked beans: this is basically my nightmare

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]

Someone doesn't understand how milk fat percentages work, but who?

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]

Can we have fish for dessert?

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?

Pickle Bites Man, Film at 11.

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]

We love honey, but aren't too fond of the sticky mess

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?
