Eating more onions at once feels healthy

in Common Onion
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I discovered the other day when I ate a whole large onion (I fried it, and then put it on my quesadillas, and fried them) that I felt really good, like eating that much onion was super healthy or something. It was a red onion, if that makes any difference. I've eaten fairly large amounts of o...read more

Roasting garlic in flames

in Garlic
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
Did you know you can roast garlic directly in the flames of a hot fire? (Such behavior causes marshmallows to burst into flames, or would likely turn hotdogs to charcoal.) I didn't read how to do this online; I wanted to burn the skins off instead of peeling them. Here's how you do it: 1. ...read more

My Christmas cactus moves

in Christmas Cactus
by Radishrain • | | 2 comments
Every once in a while (days to weeks or so), one of my Christmas cactuses moves. When it does, it seems to do it all at once. It starts out flopped on the north side of its pot. Then, it spreads out across the pot nicely, with part of the plant north, part in the center, and part south. Then, it...read more

Dill powder (and dip/spread recipe)

in Dill
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
I got some organic dill seeds a while ago. I decided I wanted them in powder form to make them easier to use at a moments' notice for a wider variety of purposes. So, I blended them up, and now they look kind of like peat moss, but workable. The freshly blended up seeds smelled like menthol, ...read more

Favorite grocery store onion-type

in Common Onion
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, lately, I've been obsessed with white onions. They're my new favorite. I wish I knew what breed they were, though (color only tells you so much about the qualities). I'm guessing they came from Winco, if that helps; they're a large kind. I used to think red onions were my favorite, but I'...read more

https://ift.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1111/1541-4337.12756 The above article is about African nightshades in sub-Saharan Africa, and it's fascinating.

I plan to edit this post as the fruits accumulate. Normal fruit count / bad uneaten ripe fruits / edible BER fruits (tossed BER fruits, squished unripe fruits and such aren't counted). The normal fruit count includes fruits with bad parts where the rest is intended to be used, but not BER fruits...read more

Does black pepper really stop a wound from bleeding?

in Piper
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, I saw a video that portrayed someone putting black pepper on a medium wound to stop it from bleeding. I cut myself, today (on a pineapple can while washing it); it was bleeding a surprising amount for not being a major cut. So, I decided to try the black pepper. I sprinkled it on. It didn...read more

Here's a list of tomatoes I feel comfortable direct-seeding, either due to an abundance of seeds or other factors: Black Cherry Picnic_2 BSX Insurance_1 Cold Black Brandy Stick (not because the seed stock is particularly abundant, but because I'll know it's Stick, rather than a volunteer...read more

Scoring potatoes with a knife instead of poking them with a fork

in Potato
by Radishrain • | | 0 comments
So, a few months ago, or so, I got the idea that it would be easier, prior to baking, just to score my potatoes with a knife than to poke them with a fork. Knifes are easier to wash, and it takes less effort to score than to poke. So, I did it, and the potatoes cooked a lot more nicely, too. ...read more

Baked potatoes and chicken sandwiches

I haven't experimented terribly with creating chicken sandwiches. So, I decided it's about time to start. I live with a relative who likes plain, unseasoned, unadorned baked chicken. No seasonings. No sauces. Just the natural flavor. I like to flavor and/or sauce things. Anyway, I decided ...read more

How to carbonate orange juice at home

So, I figured this out a few weeks or so ago: Take about a quart of Great Value orange juice (I used the calcium fortified kind, but I imagine the regular kind is at least as good). Add about a half a teaspoon of baking soda (give or take some; experiment to see if less works). Stir for about...read more
