comment How do I clean up my utensils after cutting extremely hot chillis?
I've heard that Mao people rub hands with ash after chili prep... how about baking soda or clay powder? I would cut/taste a potato or some bread to test each method you try

comment what size foil squares to wrap chocolate truffles?
Thanks, that puts it in the ball park. Too much overlap looks sloppy so under 1/2" works. Looks like I'll be stocking up on 4" and a few 6" sqs
