yeah it's a whole day's job cleaning up fresh greensLOL. I still say I don't know how the women did it back in day (gathering from gardens, cleaning, chopping, cooking, etc for each meal). I admire their fortitude.

I really dont know how they did it...I guess that since people had large families back then, there were always chillun of all ages to give tasks to so it was all a group effort.


Is that why people had more children back then? LOLLOL
my sister did say she wanted to have kids to get 'some help.' LOL. This was only 15 years ago though and she wasn't doing any farming LOLLOL

Diane, you hit the nail on the head. ALL OF THE NAILS! That is awful about the 'Cran Water' concept being pushed out for ''Cran Splash'. Every niche Celeb Chef or product out there starts off with a 'nice & friendly' non-person of color going into a partnership with a unsuspecting person of color and buying their recipes & formulas for next to nothing then getting rich off their back and pushing them out.

I was watching a show on the public channel over the weekend about some restaurant in North Carolina that is known for seasonal & locally grown comfort foods. They were talking about how people from all over USA order their canned tomatos. Of course they then show this very elderly black lady come out and they explain that she used to be the restaurant owner's family cook and that they learned the technique of selecting/scalding/canning the tomatoes from her and they had her to show her technique that had been passed down for generations. No one said ish about whether granny is on the payroll or got compensated for showing them step by step how to can the best tomatoes. They just had her propped up there on tv doing it to further exploit her and to make the food seem 'down home'.Ouch

My great grandmother had a vegetable garden - in Brooklyn - when I was growing up.  Snapping beans and shucking corn was the kids job.Ermm  And a host of other crap.  But there is nothing like veggies grown in someone's garden.  But my thumb is not just brown for decorative purposes.Disapprove

Do y'all rinse your rice before you cook? *not to hijack the thread in it's infancy*
 
Yes, but only for Carolina rice.  I was introduced to Jasmine rice so now I just pour, boil n steam.  Dam I'm hooked on this new rice. Wink

I don't rinse my rice but then again I cook with basmati rice.  I can understand why some folks would rinse their rice but I noticed certain species of rice don't "cook up" right if you pre-rinse it.  I say do whatever feels comfortable for you.  It ain't like we are hosting a BHM potluck anytime soon or are we?Stern Smile

I did it from 2012-some of 2013. Something is definitely up with the chicken.



I know that chicken is treated with ammonia to curb bacteria growth.

Greens is different. You don't want to end up eating bugs, a fresh coating of pesticide or the farmer's piss. You gotta be careful with those. As far as meat goes, all these things folks do is just there to make them feel better. Unless you eat raw meat or game, that is.

My Nigerian friend used to have underwears hanging in her bathroom. I always just thought she was having period accidents (maybe it was that too)




That was a absolute necessity to wash your undergarments the same day you wore it.  If you ever been to a seriously tropical area, leaving your undergarments to ferment in the humidity would create this abominable odor you will ever come across.  My folks are from Nigeria so this is like the norm for us.  Hell even my Puerto Rican friend fams does this. Wash those panties in the shower while they are taking a shower.  I don't judge folks if they don't practice this, as long as those panties gets washed we good.  I suspect that folks do this also to prevent folks from putting roots on them,

I don't wash or soak anything.

My apple is lucky if it gets a half a second splash under the faucet before I put it in my mouth.
