photo experiment: shooting macro photos of boiling water: digital photography re


recently i've become interested in photographing boiling water in a glass tea kettle. it may sound boring and uninteresting, but with the right lighting you can get some truly interesting images.it began when i was boiling my tea water one day in january this year, and i happened to have my camera with a macro lens and a speedlight mounted, laying nearby. i decided to try what would happen if i photographed the boiling water in the glass tea kettle and was very surprised by the results! it looked like melted metal, and the shapes were a lot more intricate and detailed than i would have expected.when experimenting with this, i have gotten the best results when using a macro lens with a long focal length. i used my trusty sigma 150mm f2.8 macro. you could probably get interesting photos with

how to hard boil eggs — and still be able to peel them — the easy way – the denv


everyone wants two things in a hard-boiled (sometimes called “hard-cooked”) egg: that it’s cooked through, yet no bitter green ring surrounds the yolk; and that it’s easy to peel.getting those two things down, however, is the devil in hard boiling eggs. overcooking is manageable, but the peeling is the pain. blame the latter on the membrane encasing the entirety of the raw egg that lies just below and against the shell. most hard-boiling methods merely adhere it to the shell and render a clean, slick peel difficult, if not impossible.i’ve tried everything to avoid that: using old eggs because the sticky membrane supposedly has shrunk away; cooking the eggs both on and off the heat; poking a hole in the fat end; dousing the eggs in an ice bath to shock the shell away from the cooked white;

the greatness — and the mystery — of eggs


cooking them can be trickier than it seems, but the experts (and vladimir nabokov) can help. plus: a recipe for a super-easy turkish dish that might just be your new breakfast favorite.vladimir nabokov’s recipe for soft-boiled eggs is a gem of a prose-poem. it encapsulates the funny little frustrations of cooking, the sense of humor one must maintain in the face of it (and in the face of life in general), and the mystery of the seemingly simple egg. “boil water in a saucepan (bubbles mean it is boiling!)” it begins. this is my favorite part:“if, however, an egg cracks in the water (now bubbling like mad) and starts to disgorge a cloud of white stuff like a medium in an old-fashioned seance, fish it out and throw it away. take another and be more careful.”boiling an egg is harder than it se

the trick to nicely cooked shrimp? steam them


this shrimp salad with spicy orange dressing is a tasty summer dish.summer’s here and the time is right for summer salads gussied up with light proteins. boiled shrimp is the perfect candidate, especially when it’s paired with orange, avocado and mint, as it is here.there is a problem, however; shrimp often becomes bland and chewy when it’s boiled. in fact, all proteins, not only shrimp, tend to turn tough when they’re subjected to the violence of boiling water. and if the boiling water isn’t well-salted, the protein in question will end up flavorless and tough.at first, i tried to avoid these pitfalls by gently simmering the shrimp. this resulted in a modest improvement. then — eureka! — i decided to take a cue from my favorite new way to make a hard-boiled egg, which is not to boil it at

experts plead for australians to stop boiling their undies in hotel kettles


lifehacks are appealing in that they offer simpler ways to handle every day problems, but one in particular is frustrating experts in australia who simple want a clean cup of tea.apparently, word went around that travelers could easily clean their underwear by boiling them in hotel kettles, but here’s the thing: no one wants to drink out of anything that’s gone near anything that’s been nestled against an unknown bum.as gizmodo australia explained:boiling kills most, but not all microorganisms.for example, some bacteria form spores that are highly resistant to anything other than 120 celsius and high pressure for extended periods of time. the clostidium botulinum spores ( which causes botulism) are a prime example of this sort of resistance to the environment, dr hendrickson says.“these do

lekue cooking mesh makes boiling veggies fun again / boing boing
