I have a few questions from readers that I haven't replied to yet, so here goes:
Nori and other Seaweed
I buy the toasted nori sheets used for sushi. I have bought some (Eden brand, I think) that weren't toasted, but toasted is better as you don't have to toast them yourself to get something you can bite through. I haven't quite mastered the art of getting it to stick once it's rolled up, I use water to seal it pretty ok, but think that's part of the job of the rice in sushi, and I don't do rice with my rolls.
The crunchy little chopped and dried wakame is pretty good too. I can handle snacking on it when I want something salty & crunchy. It's been ages since I tried dulse, but at the time I thought was a little too chewy. Seaweed is a bit of an acquired taste, so maybe I'd love it now.
I used white vinegar for my son's athlete's food. I just rubbed it onto his feet. It worked well, and also seemed to dry out the skin a bit, which helps when fighting a fungus. I also used it as a rinse for laundry, as I was a bit itchy at the time too. Now I'm using it as a scalp rinse after shampooing as well...it helps get everything cleaner and rinses out detergent and shampoo better than water alone.
Thanks! to all for your nice and thought-inspiring comments! And I will get to how to make ghee as soon as I get some more organic butter (and get the glass bowls put away out of the baby's reach). For now, here's a link to instructions.
