After eating some parve vegetables cooked in a dairy pot (‘dairy equipment’), I tasted quinoa straight from a parve pot with a parve spoon, without washing my mouth in between. Is that parve spoon now dairy? It’s not clear to me how many ‘steps’ you have to go to transfer taste.
No, the spoon is not dairy.
Vegetables cooked in a dairy pot remain parev, and although they shouldn’t be eaten with meat (depending on when the pot was last used), they are not dairy and cannot make anything else dairy.
Sorry for the delay in replying, which is due to a medical procedure that our halachic editor underwent.
