OK, so I stopped into this little store that I occasionally go to, and was wandering around, and noticed on the shelf, right next to the fish oil, a bottle labeled "Lye Water". Sure enough, in the bottom it looked like there was some not-quite dissolved lye. The label listed potash. So how do you use this stuff in cooking?? Yeah, I know about soap, but this was in the same kind of bottle as the fish oil.

yeah, it's used to make Lutefisk, and my friend's girlfriend who majored in food history (yes) said lye is used to process olives.
