Coffee

PETA is only interested in $$$ and publicity. They kill animals, and arent the animal saviors they would like us all to think they are.

Their tactics are criminal and unethical, dont think we should have pets, feel stray animals should be euthanized instead of adopted, and have targeted our children with "comic books" in the past.

P.E.T.A ? Doesn’t that stand for .....

People. Eating. Tasty. Animals.

One of my spawn rejects tomatoes for the same reason.
Extended-time salting to improve the taste of raw cut tomatoes is common these days. Either salt in a colander and let it sit and drain for 20 minutes or brine in a salt water solution. You can also add a tiny amount of sugar too. Recipes on the net. Texture is different between the two methods. So, it depends on what people hate about the texture. Season afterwards. Salting and draining removes water so the flavor is intensified. Lots of variables so you have to decide what works for you.

Aspartame. It's made in a lab. Nothing food about it what so ever.

Castoreum. It comes from a beavers anal glands and is a vanilla substitute. Also not food.

I'm sure that's what they mean by artificial: not actual food.

Everything can be traced back to the earth, that's not really a sustainable definition for not being artificial. If this was the case, wood could be considered a food ingredient.

I think you misunderstand - I'm not saying your wrong. I'm saying a sales person might say you're wrong! I've eaten a beaver (yeh yeah, I know the jokes!) restaurant in Lithuania had beaver stew, delicious. Thats food! Apartame, fine. All I was trying to highlight, is if a sales pitch tells me theres nothing fake, I want to know their definition of "fake" before I believe it!

I have to disagree about the salt portions of this thread. If used correctly, you should never taste salt in a dish (unless you like your fries doing the backstroke in it). I use salt as a flavour enhancer and you can't taste it in any dish I make. I actually don't like the taste or texture of salt. I also agree with @MrInsanePolack on no to gourds. Don't like them in any fashion. It's taste and texture, and yes I've tried them all many ways, still don't like 'em.

PETA are the fine folks who decided that minks being farmed for their hides was evil and let the entire population of a farm loose in the UK. In their infinite wisdom and total shortsightedness they failed to realize that minks have zero natural predators in the UK and therefore instantly became an apex predator. There was a noticeable drop in bird and small mammal population as a result of their actions, taking some bird species to the almost endangered point. But hey, no minks were harmed and no coats got made so, score?
BTW, minks are nasty, mean little creatures and should be made into all varieties of clothing imo.

Unfortunately, if accustomed to a low sodium diet, then you can taste the salt in almost everything (meaning it's oversalted, just so you don't think I'm disagreeing with you).
The same goes for sugar ..............if I remember correctly. ;)

Back to the civit monkeys...If someone realized that coffee tastes better going through the digestion tract of a civit monkey first....I have to ask myself....did they get it right on the first try? Meaning how many other animals did they try this on and fail...before they got to the civit monkey. And after they got to the civit monkey, did they stop there or keep trying?
 
I know so many hunters here in CO that I just acquire surplus without having to sit in a tree for hours on end.
Mmmmmmm, elk tastes good, Moose tastes good, Reindeer is delicious, and Bison makes a killer meatloaf.

All good stuff! Love it all , elk especially but mostly on the east coast where I hunt most of the red meat I consume is whitetail deer. Poultry is grouse, pheasant and quail, but mostly wild turkey ( the bourbon too ?)and grouse . Gonna see if I can elk hunt in Colorado next year as my sister lives there. We’re overloaded with whitetail on the east coast. Any extra goes to friends and family and a good amount donated to food pantries to feed the needy and or homeless. It’s a good program in NY and many states, .... hunters for the hungry.

Same here. I dont hunt because I dont need to. This means I see deer in my yard all the time. It really pisses the doberman off. She wants to get her a deer so bad. It's funny because if she is in the house barking at the deer, they ignore her. They can hear her but know she is in the house. So they will walk right up to the damn window and eat grass and weeds right in front of her.
