    Interesting tip for cooking with chocolate

    Was watching a UK cookery programme recently (Heston Blumenthal for anyone who's interested in looking him up) and Heston gave a really good tip for cooking with dark chocolate, which does actually work! Rather than adding sugar to sweeten, add a pinch of salt. Makes it rather more Primal when cooking with the darker chocolates ...

Sounds worth trying, but I don't like the idea of that cornflour ...

    I add butter and sea salt when melting chocolate. Good stuff!

    also I always try to melt in a double boiler. I've gotten better results that way.
