Thanks Mike. Understood . . . Keeping what’s there as required and then adding these in as optional extras would only make it harder for newcomers like me. I’m guessing when it comes to preserving millions of calories, then everything I’ve mention could count.

I have a question about the Food Prep badge bits. I understand that plastic is not allowed to touch the food. What about food processors and blenders though? What else would a food processor be made of? I don't think the plastic leaches out of a food processor like it does with plastic bags, but I could be wrong. There are lots of things I could submit that I make with my food processor regularly: homemade basil pesto, homemade ketchup, etc. Can you please confirm that food processors or blenders made of plastic are not allowed?
I remember a thread about plastic alternatives to kitchen appliances, but I can't find it now. Anyone know which one I'm talking about?
Other options could be a metal immersion blender, a metal manual food processor, glass blender, or mortar and pestle.
