Solid Champagne

Mrs Raybun canned some pears. One jar showed the pears covered with bubbles. Without bothering to add another item to the “Can I Eat This” thread. I ate one. It was like solid champagne. Imagine pear with the champagne fizz.I ate more to no ill effect. The following day they tasted like flat champagne. I should have eaten all of them. Can this be done deliberately? Is there a recipe? If so, what is it called?

What happens to a can of beer that gets hot/cold many times?

We found a can of hazy IPA and a Truly in my fiancé’s trunk. They have been there probably a year. We aren’t going to drink them, but what biological processes happened to them from extreme winter and summer temps?

Mediocre cherries - how would you cook them?

As a New Englander, I submit: Manhattan Clam Chowder.

Summer of Beans

I have a TON of dried beans (mostly white/navy beans, but some others too). We stocked up last fall so we could go to the store less often, and I cook a lot with beans in the winter -- soups, stews, etc. And then I was very ill and my husband took over cooking for basically the whole winter, and he does not even know how to soak beans. I'd like to make some summer bean dishes! But I don't know any. HOPE ME. [more inside]

Brownies that are flaky all the way through?

I used to get brownies at a long-bankrupt cafe that were my platonic brownie ideal. Not caky at all, very little crumb, but kind of separating into dense horizontal flakes. And not just the crust either, these were flaky all the way through. Does anyone have a recipe like that? [more inside]

Online specialty grocers that ship in the US

I've moved to a small(er) city and don't have as many in-person grocery options as I used to. I need to order some ingredients online. I'm specifically looking for Middle Eastern, West African, Japanese, Korean, and Southeast Asian grocery stuff, but enjoy browsing for cooking ideas/inspiration/snacks so if you have a favorite that doesn't fit those categories I'd still like to hear about it. I'd like to avoid behemoths like Amazon. I already know about H-Mart. [more inside]

Should I eat this? Deep fried edition.

I have a 1/2 gallon of veg oil in a deep cast iron pan on the side burner of my grill in which I cooked a piece of cod. Afterwards I left it out uncovered by accident for a day and found 2 deceased flies in it. Scoop out flies and fry or dispose of oil? (Already made my choice but interested in what others would do).
