Spices & Spice Recipies Natural Raw Diet For Dogs Many of the commercial dog food companies would have us believe that they actually use human grade meat in the production of their food, when in fact the sources of this "meat" are not even fit for animal consumption.In some areas of North America this list can also include euthanized companion animals from clinics and shelters, roadkill, zoo animals, livestock which die from disease or disability.The "meat" is purchased from a rendering plant which also receives material from slaughterhouses such as hair, feathers, hooves and any part of the mammal which is condemned for human consumtion. This list includes tumorous growths, contaminated blood and any carcass containing high levels of drugs or pesticides.This material is then cooked. Grease rises to the top and is removed.

Dog Food FAQs: Protein Does a high protein percentage (as shown on the package) mean that a pet food is automatically better than others with lower percentages? No, a higher percentage of protein doesn't mean that a pet food is automatically better than others with a lower percentage. Similarly, a lower protein percentage isn't automatically bad, provided that the protein included in the food comes from a good source (such as real chicken or real lamb meat). Don't rely solely on the percentage of crude protein shown in the guaranteed analysis on the package. While it is tempting to assume that a high percentage of protein means that a food contains a lot of beneficial protein (and is therefore better than comparable foods), this is not always the case. Why do dogs need protein? Dogs actually require 22 amino acids (the building blocks that make up proteins). Can I tell which proteins are better than others? How much protein does my dog need? Can I feed my dog too much protein?

A Recipe for Homemade, Homegrown Cayenne Pepper Hot Sauce I found this recipe about 6 months ago and I was instantly intrigued. I have a cayenne plant that is producing heavily and I recently became interested in pickling. While researching pickling I found this recipe but was apprehensive to try because I know so little about fermenting and the process. I started on July 21. Before I get back to that batch…., on July 28 I started a 2nd batch and, lets just say, Batch #2…7/28/13 – 8/1/13…RIP. Back to my first batch and what I learned. The lactic acid creates the sour taste and preserves the food and the carbon dioxide, as it rises, pushes out any oxygen trying to penetrate the liquid. In summary, and this is my humble opinion, but I think the trick may be to fill the jar to the top with water so there is no air gap, and then “vent” the jar starting when the fermentation starts, about 3-5 days in. I hope this helps somebody out there.

thyme : Encyclopedia : Food Network Pronunciation: [TIME] Categories: Thyme There are several varieties of this mint-family member, a perennial herb native to southern Europe and the Mediterranean.
