I find your perspective most unusual. Do you ever wonder if such positioning is actually logical though?


I just posted my thoughts on popcorn and why
it taste better popped in coconut oil.

I'm not the one stuck in time. (or an ideology)

I'm ready to read anything you have to say or link to post
on raw milk or high fructose corn syrup.

Please do.

I think for years your posts have shown otherwise.

But if it made your popcorn taste better, wouldn't you be a big proponent?

If you eat caramel corn (or divinity, or pralines, or brittle) then you eat corn syrup; like many other candies they're virtually always made with it, and traditionally have been since the 19th century. At those cooking temps it can otherwise get very difficult to prevent crystallization, which ruins the texture.

So then why do you think it would change my opinion on the taste of raw milk?

I think poi tastes awful, but maybe I just haven't read enough books about poi.

I posted a good book, in my opinion, on the subject of milk.

I thought you and others might like to take a look.

I'm just trying to understand you, my friend. I find you are actually quite consistent in your posts and viewpoints, and that's the consistency that I've observed. Am I wrong? What's a "modern" thing that you feel is good? What is an "old-timey" thing that you think we're all better off without?

To be fair, I made that part up.

But, interestingly the point has yet to be "refudiated"

Iron horse, that book didn't make any sense in response to how you quoted me.

What point do I need to address?

What did I miss?

Oh, I was just being lazy and threw in "olive oil" as an example of a modern food trend that I would presume you would find "distasteful" (no pun intended).

I'm sure you have no problem with olive oil.

RIP pink slime

McDonald's stops using 'pink slime' for burgers


NEW YORK (CNN) - McDonald's announced it will no longer use a food additive some call "pink slime" its burgers.

The filler is made from spare beef trimmings that are treated with ammonium hydroxide to kill any bacteria.

The material has come under fire in newspapers and in a major documentary, and celebrity chef Jamie Oliver campaigned hard against it on his TV show.

McDonald's says its decision was not based on any particular event.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says the use of ammoniated beef trimmings is safe.

Two other major fast food chains have also reportedly stopped using it.

I don't eat McDonald's burgers and am not quite sure what Jamie Oliver's, erm, beef with "pink slime" is, but if nothing else it'll make for a better-quality burger to eliminate fillers/extenders like that.



Change of topic here...what's the deal with the suddenly huge market for gluten-free stuff these days? I stopped by the grocery on my way home to pick up some rice flour for a Chinese dessert, and as I located the box I was noticing, Scheez, they've got a whole half-aisle of gluten-free pasta/crackers/bread/cookies/etc. here now. It can't be a 'low-carb' thing because none of this stuff's low in carbs, it's just made with starches other than wheat. And there can't be this many people with allergies or celiac disease! Why is this trendy?

More New Yorkers are going gluten-free, even if they're not celiac or allergic to wheat - NYPOST.com

I thought that you were a libertarian?

I'd think you'd support people having free choice to eat whatever they want. If gluten-free then so be it.

"olive oil" a dog-whistle and you're not fooling anyone.
