I knocked some cigarette ash into my coleslaw mixture - how bad can it be if I mix it in? Is ash ever used in any recipes?

That might be gross. Wood ash is used in nixtamal (processed corn) but only as a way to break down protein, then it's washed away. Tobacco ash + cigarette additives won't taste good in food. No judgement, but if you smoke while cooking, doesn't it make all your food taste like cigarettes?

Ash, although not cigarette ash, can be used in making cheese. Not coleslaw however.
