I made a discovery today that I want to share regarding the stained crackle
thread. I made a batch of beet borscht this week (Old family recipe). I
refrigerated it in a deep casserole dish, glazed thickly with a shino that
appears white when clean. I finished the borscht today, and lo and behold,
the crackle is stained pink! I guess I could clean it with bleach, but I
rather like it. Imagine the possibilities as the berry season approaches!

intoxicating scents.
