Hi Chef James,
I made a pot of chili and it started to burn.  I dumped all of the chili into a fresh pot without the burnt part.  Is there anything, spice or whatever, that I can add to get rid of the slight burnt taste/smell?, rather that starting over?
Thanks,  Jeff

Hi Jeff,
here is no way to get rid of the burned taste. Throw it away and start over.

Next time if you notice food starting to burn -  Do Not Stir -  Remove the pot immediately from the stove and put the bottom of the pan into a sink full of cold water to stop the cooking. 

Using a ladle or cup, remove the top 3/4 of it from the pot and place in a new pan.  Do not pour it, as this will mix some of the burnt part as you pour.         Chef James
