Although I've heard that hot water leeches a variety of metals/minerals that aren't good for human consumption, after a quick search I could only track down one authority that talks about lead.

From the Minnesota Department of Health Website:

Use cold tap water and heat it on the stove if you need hot water for food preparation. Hot tap water absorbs more lead from pipes and pipe solder. Let tap water run for at least two minutes if the water has been standing in the pipes for 6 hours or more. This flushes out the water that might have absorbed lead from the pipes or the solder that joins the pipes together.

Here is the link:

Lead in water is a problem mostly in older homes that use lead solder but even in newer homes hot water can put excess copper into drinking water.

They will plump up - why don't you roll them out in different batches "playing" with the thickness - that way you'll know for sure and it's not like they will be bad or anything!!!! LOL

My one grandmother is swedish and dutch, the other is slovak, grandfather was german and belgian, other one was prussian so I am familar with a variety of etnic foods but dont know alot about any...did I say that right? :roll: Anyways, just to mix it up, I married an Italian.
Do you have a recipe for sterum? I would love to try some new. :D
