In Praise of Baking Soda
I was making some Soybean Stuff and the tomatoes were juicy and I wanted to reduce the liquid some. I went into my room for a moment, got a phone call, and by the time I got off the phone (it wasn't a long call, but it was a few minutes), the bottom was entirely carbonized.
Three boilings with water and baking soda, two baking soda paste scrubs with a soft brush and elbow grease, and one overnight soak later, all the burnt stuff is off my pot. Yeehaw!
Baking soda: No kitchen should be without it.
