Well pretty much Charles you answered your own question when it comes to frying when you fry chicken how do you know when it's done? Or your french fries?

If I want unmodified recipes, they are available by the millions on the Internet.  The trend is now, on this list, to a greater and greater extent, to post recipes copied from the Internet that people have not tried, with no modification for blind people.  To me, this tendency makes “Cooking in the Dark” less and less special.  It is becoming just another cooking list.  What attracts me to the “cooking in the Dark” podcast that Dale has done for a long time is that the focus remains on how BLIND people accomplish the tasks involved in successful meal preparation.  I am considering leaving a list that is becoming less and less meaningful to blind people.
