    Strange Sandwich

    Well, tabbouleh uses bulghur (cracked wheat) not couscous and has mint in it, but other than that, I suppose so.

    Strange Sandwich

    Well, the other kids at camp thought it odd when I did it. I think a lot of people are so used to pre-sweetened oatmeal mixes that they assume that ALL oatmeal must be mixed with sweet things. I kind of get the same look when I add savory things to plain yogurt. Speaking of which reminds me of...

    Strange Sandwich

    Well, I put onions (or more often, scallions) in my tuna melts. And the tuna itself is seasoned with sandwich sprinkle (basically a mix of salt, pepper and Italian seasoning). Same thing with my crabby melts (same as a tuna melt, but with crab instead of tuna) When I was a kid, I used to eat...

    Those Inadequate Hardiness Zones

    There are actually quite a few of them. There is this Asian citrus fruit called a papeda. Fruits that are created by crosses with it tend to pick up a LOT of cold resistance (Pure papeda has the most of all, it can take down to -15c but the fruit is inedible.) The Yuzu is one but others are the...

    Those Inadequate Hardiness Zones

    Or the reason I am leery of leaving my little Yuzu trees out for the winter, even though they are SUPPOSED to be good down to -5F. It would just need ONE bad week of super cold to undo my years of growing work. I also recently ordered (though have yet to receive) a pair of Himalayan Mountain...

    2019 Little Easy Bean Network - Come And Reawaken The Thrill Of Discovery

    I can almost GUARANTEE that is what happened, as the seed was in the Seed Zoo, and that is ALL Joe Simcox's work. At the time he had a LOT of Middle Caucasian material ("Caucasian" as in "from around the Caucuses") in the store. I think Hashuli came from the same batch. I also remember something...

    2019 Little Easy Bean Network - Come And Reawaken The Thrill Of Discovery

    I'm the person who originally gave HIM the seed for Armenian Black (he asked on the other forum I belong to if anyone had seed for BIG beans). The seed originally came from Richters. I split my pack at the time with another member on the other forum since I was only interested in the ones with...

    By the by ~ have you noticed the price of Vanilla

    I sorta got around it by buying my vanilla from stores that deal in remainders (Home Goods, mostly) where everything is on a steep discount. Though this plan does rely on being able to stock up when the stuff is available (so you need to be able to lay down significant amounts of money when the...

    Pee-can trees

    I did some more research, and it looks like Manchurian Walnut would do GREAT for either of us. It turns out it is SUPER cold resistant and can take zones from zone 8 all the way down to zone 2!

    2019 Corn Hunt Begins

    Doesn't look like I still have that one (It's probably locked up on Photobucket, where I can't get at it anymore. However there are other photos of speckled corn in some of the folders below (in particular the ones of individual kernels on plates or in containers. As well as the mini kernels...

    2019 Corn Hunt Begins

    What I really seeking falls into two main categories (there is of course the "sweet corn kernels on Indian corn but that is SO general I don't send others out on it.) One is corn with the stippled gene which results in kernels with speckles (like in my avatar photo) The other is any miniature...

    2019 Corn Hunt Begins

    FINALLY found an ear with a little speckling. Though very, very little (too little in fact to take a photo, nothing would show up). What makes this extra annoying is that the corn came from David Shantz farms, who used to be my BEST source for good speckling. If THEIR stuff is so plain, I have...

    What I Learned after Quitting Tea

    Supposedly, oolong teas are also supposed to be good for keeping your weight down.

    Do you ferment?

    Well that is you. I don't see that I have to want to drink the stuff to enjoy making it. The fact that it makes someone happy is enough for me, whether that someone is me or not. Though you do bring up a good point. I have bought off the shelf meads from time to time, and I have yet to find...

    Do you ferment?

    I said mead, that's SORT of the same thing I actually made some mulberry wine of a sort recently (I say of a sort because I used mulberry molasses, as opposed to fresh mulberry juice)

    Do you ferment?

    Plus, you can always use it as a stepping stone to make labne/quark (I think all have to do is drain it). Tried my hand at making umeboshi once, but it got moldy (I forgot the pressure stones to keep it under the brine) what I could taste however told me I don't like umeboshi so I won't be...

    Do you ferment?

    I make mead (according to those who drink it [I don't] very good mead.)
