This is what sleep deprivation does to you. You walk away from a pot of steaming apples and this is what you come back to. (my ability to multi-task was always sub-par, now it is clearly non existent. I'm lucky I didn't burn the place down! (I do own a fire extinguisher now...just in case)) I kid you not this pot looks like it is coated with a non-stick surface. I've tried using a brillo pad and got no where.. in fact this picture is AFTER I brillo-ed the pot. If anyone has any suggestions on how to remove burned on ... apple drippings ?(sugar I suppose) I'm all ears. I used a brillo pad, I tried to boil water in there to soften it. I tried to dissolve it with vinegar... nothing even scratched the surface... I'm thinking I may just have to toss it.
You should have seen it when I first turned off the heat... like a cloud of charcoal.
