CAM, they tasted great; friends were shocked that I turned the stove on and used a pan for cooking (this wasn't usually allowed for us 7 year olds).

edit:
This is in response to a question posed in the thread entitled
cottage pie -ejm

At about age 7 I began to experiment with food on the stove. My first success was placing boiled spuds (sliced) in a hot pan with catsup. I had never heard of the word "caramelization" at that point, but, that's what happened to the spuds. I went on to show this trick to several (shocked) friends.


How did they taste? Was that what shocked your friends?

What a radical! I am guessing that this was rather a clandestine activity for you, too? Did your parents find out?

Perhaps I should explain more clearly. My parents had no objections to my cooking at an early age. My mother encouraged me by making me my own cook's hat and apron. The schock only came when I cooked at friends' kitchens. They were worried to death that their moms would "find out". All went fairly well for me EXCEPT for the near-death-experience of opening a pressure cooker at full pressure!
