Why does milk taste like benzene sometimes?

What's the current state of science on microgreens?

I know the CDC doesn't think ANYONE should eat raw sprouts, least of all kids and the immunocompromised. I LOVE sprouts. But I have a kid so I don't buy them. I see lots more microgreens around these days. I feel like they're no sprout, but close enough, maybe? Are they safe? For adults? For kids? I know non-organic might be safer. I think I could probably have access to either organic or non-organic.

Simplest way to saffron

I’ve got some Spanish saffron from Trader Joe’s and I understand there are many delicious recipes I could make with it, but I am interested in taking it just for health benefits, in the simplest way possible. Could I just… eat a strand? If not, what’s the best way to consume it without cooking an elaborate dish?

What's up with the recent potato obsession?

Is it just here on MeFi or is the rest of the world also preoccupied with all things potato? Is it a secret potato cabal intent on dominating the rest of the edible vegetables? A contest I missed hearing about? I'm hoping it's something less mundane than national potato week. Responses of all degrees of creativity and truthiness welcome here.
