Is there a way to preserve chocolate- as in for an art piece?

I make chocolate art pieces and I am looking for a way to mount one on a wall.  I put a couple of the pieces in an art show into plexiglass frames but they had to sit tabletop.  Maybe encased in resin, but I would need a cold resin so as not to melt the chocolate.  Below is a photo of some of my chocolate art I would like to preserve/encase and mount on the wall but I really don't know how! This photo looks wall-mounted but again, it was shot tabletop.

How to fix Food Saver - Vacuum Sealer? Answered

I have a Food Saver brand Vacuum Sealer, that all of a sudden stopped working properly. It has no On-Off switch. You simply plug it in, and then put the bag up to the vacuum area and then press down and hold the lid when its vacuuming the air out and then seals the bag closed. When it stopped working, a vacuum bag was placed (as we normally would) and then the lid was put down and pressed. The motor is still running, but normally it makes a louder noise as its vacuuming the air out, and this time it didn't work. (No vacuum). Since it wouldn't vacuum the air, it then wouldn't also seal the bag.  I checked the single air hole on the unit, and there isn't anything obstructing the flow of air, and the bag was put properly in the machine. I also tried using a new bag (just in case the other one was defective) but it made no difference. All the bags come off a large roll. You seal one end, fill it, and then vacuum the air and finally it seals. I've been using this machine for several years with no issues, and this isn't a new roll of bags. Any ideas on what to do to service it and hopefully get it working again?

What ingredient in this tea makes it taste sweet? Cinnamon? Cloves? Nutmeg? Answered

Bengal Spice tea made by Celestial Seasonings tastes sweet when brewed without a sweetener.  It's so sweet you could convince a taster that a fair amount of sweetener was already added to their cup.  The listed ingredients are:  cinnamon, roasted chicory, roasted carob, natural spice and vanilla flavors with other natural flavors, ginger, cardamom, black pepper, cloves and nutmeg.  The box lists 0 calories and 0 grams of carbohydrate indicating no sugar.  Further, since the second infusion also tastes sweet, I doubt they "neglected" to list an ingredient such as sugar or stevia, which would tend to fully dissolve in the first infusion.  What ingredient is making the tea taste sweet?  Why isn't that ingredient used to sweeten other drinks?

Anyone know how to make a hokkaido style milk/yogurt drink? Answered

Went on a trip to Hokkaido recently and there were a lot of drinkable yogurts available at nearly every 7i and Lawsons.  My favorite one is the one shown in this pic https://www.tripadvisor.com/LocationPhotoDirectLink-g321549-d2628179-i75834122-Milk_Kobo-Niseko_cho_Abuta_gun_Hokkaido.html I read in a manga that takes place in a Hokkaido high school that you can make yogurt, i'm hoping the same drinkable type of yogurt, by combining milk and store bought yogurt in a container and then storing that at 40 degrees celsius for a couple hours.  The name of the manga is Silver Spoon, or Gin no Saji if you're wondering. Has anyone tried this method?  I know the normal method of making yogurt i'm just hoping this method is the method that makes it into that drinkable consistency similar to those drinkable yogurt drinks in Hokkaido.

Is it right to grow oyster mushrooms on cotton-seed & use Formalin + water for pasteurization?

Hello Rocketsurgery! It's my first time growing oyster mushrooms. I am using "cotton-seed" as a growing medium since it's the material I can find in my area. And for pasteurization, I add "Formalin" into water and soak it for 2:30- 3:00 hrs. This is how the instructors in my area told me.  Do you think I'm doing  it the right way OR  Do you have any suggestion on how I  should grow it better???

Chlorella Cracking?

I have recently begun looking at algae as a dietary supplement and I would like to grow it on my own.  I am aware that spirulina doesn't require cell cracking; however I already have a high protein diet and I prefer chlorella.  Chlorella's cell wall is indigestable and this prevents our bodies from getting any more than 40% of the nutrients.  I would like to know if that figure sounds right.  The biggest problem I see with growing my own Chlorella is cracking it.  I wondered about pulverizing it in a blender or using the hot to cold method, but it seems all methods other than ultrasonic waves will destroy most of the nutrients.  Is it still better to use one of these methods to get the nutrients out, or would it be best to go uncracked.  Or is there a practical way to use the sound to do it.

Bacon problem (too dry)? Answered

I have had some trouble cooking bacon. When I bought thick sliced bacon, my roommate stored it in the freezer (I think this was the problem?). The next day I had to moved it down to the normal side, took like 3 days to become pliable. However, when I try to cook it, it become so dry but I don't know why. Here's what I did, I left the slices on the pan (without heat) for 10 mins, then I cooked on medium heat, flipped till they became golden brown, then I pick them up by chopstick and leave it in my dish. First the bacon still have a little grease on it, so it's glossy; but a few moment later, it turn bone dry, no grease, no gloss, no nothing. Can anyone tell what my error was? I'm still new to bacon so sorry. PS: I wasn't able to take any picture cause my roommate ate them all because he was too hungry....
