Re: Is Mold Always Obvious?

I've had little tiny flakes of mould show up in my miso. I just scoop them out, no biggie. I guess it depends on the type of mould and what it's on though? I'm not sure about infused oil.

Re: Sick all the time!

I would also suggest drinking taheebo (pau d'arco) tea. It will help support your immune system and is amazing for the respiratory system. Have a big pot on the stove continually brewing so you can just dip into it and drink it all day. Pay attention to everything in your surroundings. What is diffe...

Re: Ideas for making Nettle infusions taste better.

Lemon juice works, but I don't mind the taste.

Re: Mushrooms!

So, there was one mushroom I saw in my wanderings I was continually wondering about. It stuck in my head and I kept dismissing one possibility because I thought of it as a mushroom that grew in Asia. But low and behold, reishi does in fact grow here. I will never forget it and so the next time I see...

The last few months I've been learning about mushrooms, wanting to be able to forage for more f my food as time goes by, or for when I am on one of my walks -...

Re: My nettles lost their sting

It is a puzzle.

But then, it might not have to do with the variety nor the soil, but the fact that this one plant is getting so much attention? That in itself is a unique situation for a stinging nettle plant.

Perhaps someone will come along here and know the answer. I'm curious, myself.

Re: My nettles lost their sting

It could just be the variety you're dealing with.

Another idea is, are the leaves you touch, or brush by on, older leaves or are they new ones? Does nettle have a limited amount of stinging power?

Re: My nettles lost their sting

When a leaf is stroked one way there is little chance in getting stung. It's possible you just rubbed it the right way.

When I collect nettle, I don't use any gloves and on occasion I might get a sting or two on my wrist from reaching into the plant, but that's it.
