Re: “Rick Eager proves that "fish farming" isn't a bad word

I know these comments were made a few years ago BUT, read them now with what we know and it's a little bit funny! All farms, whether you like it or not use pesticides! They are not going to let insects eat up there crops, period! Something I aways find amusing, you go into a restaurant and ask for iced tea, we are in the south right? They put a wedge of lemon on your glass, most people either squeeze it or just take it off and drop it into the glasss of tea, right? If you don't believe me, watch sometime! That's what happens. The lemon is probably the dirtiest most "infected" item in the restaurant with pesticides, grime, dirt, etc. I have been in the business for many many years and never have I seen a restaurant operator washing lemons before cutting them into wedges. I'm sure some do but not many! Are you really going to get in an up roar about soy? There are many many many other things alot worse and nothing is being done about them and there are simple solutions to fix those problems! Fish farming is something to help us with what is going on in our oceans. Farmer must make money to do it or they can't stay in business! Think about it!

Re: “A Brief History of the Boiled Peanut

I moved to the border of North Carolina (and SC) a year ago from Colorado, and had never heard of boiled peanuts..I saw them at the gas stations and roadside stands, and finally broke down to try them. I love hot and spicy, cajun food so that style appeals to me. Now I am an addict and have happily found them at all the local grocery store Canned, Cajun style, from the brand 'Peanut Patch'. My other favorite new Southern treats are Hannah's pickled eggs (pink and very vinegary) as well as pickled sausage,(both sold in all the grocery stores) but, the best southern snack in the world is pickled okra! (hot, from the brands Old South and Taste of Texas). You can get most anything on eBay, Wal-Mart, etc online with a search, FYI. I get a HUGE jar of Old South pickled okra from Wal-Mart online, free shipping,and find such delicacies as Cajun pickled quail eggs from Louisiana (homemade, sent in canning jars) on eBay. I'm sure you can get canned boiled peanuts online. FYI. Try Peanut Patch..simmered on your stove top in 5 min, and very inexpensive, it's as good as the real deal.
