I always thought it must be my imagination that shaking ketchup helped.

Will have to remember that Spud.

Something I just read that I didn't know:  Ketchup is a non-Newtonian fluid.  It's viscosity is reduced when it is disturbed, which is why it's easier to pour ketchup out of a bottle after you shake it up.

I thought they turned red as they ripen........

Chris, I have no idea about cooking pears that turn red on their own. Never heard of it. However, if they are cooked in wine, or some other medium, then they would turn red and have an added flavor. I'm with Joan in that I don't believe food coloring will add anything to the tast

Chris, I have no idea about cooking pears that turn red. I highly doubt the color is from food coloring. I Googled, and found a nice article about pears.

Randy, when I make Swedish pancakes, I assemble all the ingredients the night before. The leavening is the eggs, so I don't have to worry about losing their lightness. 

I failed to include the citation and she is such a dear little one; here is a paragraph from this recipe page: 

African pancakes

"These tender pancakes are a cross between crepe and  American pancakes – a  little thicker than crepes but not as thick as American pancakes . They are comparable to South African or Swedish pancakes , I call them  African pancakes because to be honest , there is no  name for it , other than pancakes . This is the pancake I know   from   Cameroon , West Africa, where I grew up, with slight variations. I can’t seem to get anything like  this in restaurants or maybe it is just comfort food to me , one that has to be homemade."

I came home with a gift of cooking pears - more than 5 kilos! They told me the pears would turn red, but when I put them in the pan they stayed whitish. I think I don't understand everything about cooking pears... Should I use food colouring? But why? Is there any difference in the taste when they are red? Educate me!

My red raspberries have been producing for several weeks now, but they never get a chance to go will anything.  They get eaten immediately after being picked from the vine.  Of course, I don't have enough to ever get full from eating them fresh.

Wow, 70 minutes prep time for the African pancakes! I don't think so. But, they do sound and look delicious! My Fall crop of red raspberries are coming on bountifully. They go well with just about anything.
