I must confess, when I first saw this on the stove top, I was unsure what I was looking at. It had the appearance of a cell under the microscope, the small circle of the nucleus located at one end of the cell, with a thick cytoplasm localized at the opposite end. It’s always an interesting lesson to see how the chemical properties of simple liquids can, as they dry, adopt zones and shapes identical to those found in cells.
