Is grapefruit really a pomelo-orange hybrid?

in Grapefruit
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/10/201029115836.htm I have my doubts that a sweet orange is a direct parent of grapefruit. Pomelos are not as bitter as grapefruit (they taste like tropical fruit punch, basically). Neither are oranges. Why would they combine into something more bitt...read more

https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2020/10/201029115836.htm Apparently, at least some commercial cypress mulch has been shown that it is not 100% cypress, if there is any cypress in it at all.

Dehydrating limes

in Lime
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
I'm dehydrating a few bags of small limes (cut into eight slices each; skins, seeds, and all), and some tomatoes, currently. I think they're key limes, but I could be wrong. I plan to see if I can powder them. I wanted to dehydrate the peels separately, but they're very difficult to separate fro...read more

Best if used by date: 4 Feb 2022 Barcode: 078742358857 We got some of this within the last few weeks, from Walmart in the store (I didn't actually go myself and get it). Anyway, it took about 7 minutes to cook, which is nice. It's one and a third cups of macaroni in the box, with a tradit...read more

So, I was thinking today, it's pretty easy to dehydrate and powder leaves. Some leaves have a lot of protein (amaranth leaves, for instance). Seeds can be pretty difficult to harvest, and fruits take longer to dehydrate. So, why not powder lots of leaves? I'm considering powdering our edible ...read more

Harvesting common amaranth seeds

in Common Amaranth
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I figured common amaranth would have seeds just like the cultivated grain amaranths, since the plants look so much the same—but no. We harvested some the other day, and the seeds were like tiny black specks. I wasn't expecting them to be so small, neither did I expect them to be black (there's n...read more

What kind of fruit has the most seeds? I don't currently know the answer, nor do I have seed counts, but in general, these fruits have a lot of seeds: • Tomatillos (usually; sometimes they don't) • Muskmelons (I've never met a muskmelon with few seeds. They are reliably seedy, in my exper...read more
