  1. Yes actually, I believe many of the food shelf life sites list it's storage in YEARS.
  2. Lots of times over the years - very good product.
  3. Quote: Ever try to get a sick, wild cat picked up by ANY officials? The humane dept-animal control says they are considered a wild animal. The DNR-conservation officers say they are domesticated. The local chief of police says "Do you have a gun?" Double GEESH! BOY this that the truth - which is why DH and I became the local feline rescue team for our county. I have indeed had to terminate a cat's life, but not over a) self defense or protecting its own property. We currently have 11 rescue cats on our farm, none of whom are eligible for adoption - health problems, behavior problems, attitude problems or we just fell plumb in love. The owner of this cat has the right to chose to let it live inside. I know people who have malicious and vandalous children who have done this much or worse!
  4. Dunno where else to put this but this is an absolutely TRUE and equally RIDICULOUS issue going on in Connecticut. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lewis_(cat) If you agree with me here's the link for the petition to save this poor cat's life! Help! June 20th is right around the corner. http://www.petitiononline.com/Lewis/petition.html
  5. is a MUST buy! Great articles on a nice variety for those who don't subscribe.
  6. Is the leak THROUGH the panels or around the panels? There are some excellent silicone based product for sealing around solar panels and sky lights. Lemme knwo and I'll post more detail.
  7. Best tummy tonic of all the mints.
  8. No Cavey, you probably ought to have posted it in a forum people actually read, rather than down here.
  9. I just scored a whole stack of food grade 5 gallon buckets with lids from our local hamburger joint. Bleach is taking the pickle smell out quite nicely.
  10. Welllll..... if we had hills in Kansas I'd have gotten 100%
  11. Lois is dead on with the lives as listed. Also, most essential oils only have about a 6 month shelf life.
  12. Hey Sparky! If I missed you up in the Sunporch - WELCOME to MrsS.
  13. I'm not sure horseradish can take on the texture of "cooked" to be honest. It is a bit softer this way than if you just put it in salt and vinegar then keep it in the frig, but certainly not "cooked". I tried it one year as a sauce - literally pureed the horseradish. It was good for encrusting steaks and stuff, but not nearly as nice for the little ZAP you might like in deviled eggs and things.
  14. Mamacats Canned Horseradish 1 Quart freshly grated horseradish 2 cup white vinegar 1 tsp pickling salt 1/2 tsp ascorbic acid Wash horseradish roots thoroughly (I use a scrub brush) and peel off most of the outer skin. Cut into chunks and whirl it up in your food processor or put through your meat grinder. You can shred it by hand but it takes a long long time! Combine ingredients and fill sterile jars, leave about 1/4 inch headspace. Process in a boiling-water canner for 10 minutes. Store in a cool place.
  15. I use the leaf for tea (like drinkable) and the powdered for capsules (like supplements). I like the leaf/tea better.
  16. Knowing what it's like to really need AND want a particular job I will be with you in prayer at 1 pm Central.
  17. I have had really good luck with herbalcom.com Their current price on green tea is $4.65 for leaf, $4.50 for powder.
  18. lemme get home and I'll pop the recipe in.
  19. http://www.fidius.org/quiz/pirate/ MY pirate name is: Captain Ethel Rackham Even though there's no legal rank on a pirate ship, everyone recognizes you're the one in charge. You have the good fortune of having a good name, since Rackham (pronounced RACKem, not rack-ham) is one of the coolest sounding surnames for a pirate. Arr!
  20. sorry to jump in late here! I cut my blooms. My reasoning is based in my herb training - any energy that is put into blossoming will detract from the rest of the plant. I don't know about plant gender, but I'd assume not. You cannot grow it true from seed, that I do know. Westie, you can root cellar horseradish quite well and grate fresh year round if you don't want to can it. Last year we had an "over crop" (what a horrible problem to have, eh ) and I actually got overtaken for about an hour - had to get about 50 feet from any of it what with the tears streaming down my face! We put up 2 gallons tho.
  21. Boss, may your generousity be returned to you in multiples. Great award. Congrats to the winner and kudos to such a terrific donor!
