Peanuts are Explosive?
Hip Foodie Mom shows us how to make apples into roses, but did you know that apples are actually a part of the ROSE family? It's true.
Apple Blossom is also the state flower of Michigan.
It takes the energy from 50 apple leaves to produce 1 apple.
They're the second most "valuable" fruit grown in the United States-oranges are the first. And the science of apple-growing is called pomology.
It's also a food fact that honey is the ONLY food that doesn't spoil. It's been proven by archaeologists who have actually tasted the honey that was kept in tombs of pharaohs thousands of years ago. It's got the eternal shelf life.
In fact, even though pharaohs are portrayed as slim and statuesque, they were often very overweight due to their consumption of beer, wine, bread and honey.
They also used honey as an ointment to treat skin and eye diseases and to cover wounds. It was nature's bandage because nothing could grow on it. They kept it in jars, and if we don't store honey in jars to this day it sucks in moisture, which makes it get
diluted and ferment.
do Peanuts and Dynamite have in common? Well, dynamite is actually made from peanuts. You see, nitroglycerine is the main ingredient in dynamite, right? Well, glycerol is one of the main ingredients in mitroglycerine. Peanut oil is used in making glycerol,
and peanut oil is extracted from peanuts. Some people love eating peanuts and think they're the bomb, and realistically they are!
Be careful how many whole nutmegs you eat because they can cause wild hallucinations, nausea, vomiting and even death if 1-3 are ground and ingested. Nutmegs contain myristicin, which is a narcotic, and taken in large does can and will be fatal. So, go easy
when you grate nutmeg on top of eggnog during the holidays or you'll get more than just a little buzz.
And, finally, smelling bananas can help you lose weight.
aroma is supposed to trigger signals in the brain's satiety, sending messages to your brain that you're full.
I think I'd rather just have the Elvis Special-fried peanut butter and banana sandwich.
