Kitchen 101: Fruits, Vegetables & Herbs Kitchen 101: Fruits, Vegetables & Herbs I’d be remiss if I simply focused on imparting technical knowledge in the Kitchen 101 series here at Chasing Delicious. I’d be downright neglectful if I didn’t talk about ingredients, particularly the biggest misconception about produce today: that it is naturally available year-round. Though you may be able to find just about every type of fruit, vegetable, and herb in the grocery store every day of the year, a majority of this produce is not in season. Time spent in transit or storage is not the only inflated aspect of buying produce out of season. The biggest problem with buying out of season produce, and the focus of this article, is the lack of freshness and sacrifice in flavor and nutrients. My favorite part about abiding by an ingredient’s natural availability is what I like to call the Thanksgiving effect. That being said, there are many factors that effects a particular ingredients season. Take the time to read the sticker on the fruit.

How to Make Proper Barbecue Chicken | The Paupered Chef There's a lot of misconception when it comes to "barbecue." The problem is the word itself. It's used as a synonym for grilling, refers to the grill itself, or to the meat being grilled; it also has a sauce named after it; and sometimes it's just the word for the party itself held outdoors in somebody's backyard. American purists see things a little differently. Which brings us to barbecue chicken, a staple of the summer grill. The sad fact is that often times the answer is no.

Here are 10 things that you can keep around the house to make those dinners you whip up on the fly seem more like restaurant dishes.Sherry vinegar Sometime in the '80s, Americans discovered balsamic vinegar, the sweet and syrupy condiment that Italians had been enjoying for centuries. Pimentón Another Spanish import, pimentón is paprika – but not that tasteless, dusty stuff your mother sprinkled all over the chicken. Smoked sea salt Food geeks are in love with fancy salts: pink sea salt from Hawaiian beaches, hand-gathered grey salt from Brittany. Pancetta Cured pork makes everything better, and there may be no more useful form than pancetta, which is basically the Italian equivalent of bacon. Miso

Geneticist David Suzuki Says Humans “Are Part Of A Massive Experiment” We are doing our part to try and spread the word about GMOs, (genetically modified organisms) but we’re not the only ones. Multiple public figures, scientists and researchers have been speaking out about GMOs for a number of years. For example, not long ago a former Canadian Government Scientist at Agriculture Canada, Dr. Thierry Vrain (one of many) spoke out against GMOs. It doesn’t seem to be much of a debate anymore, it’s clear that GMOs can indeed be harmful to human health. This large movement against GMOs is not based on belief, multiple researchers and scientists all around the world have shown that GMOs can be harmful. Along with GMOs come the pesticides, which have been linked to cancer, parkinson’s, autism and alzheimer’s, to name a few. As you can see, alternative media outlets are not the only ones doing their research. Below is an article written by David Suzuki and Faisal Moola.

This Little Weed is One of the Most Useful Medicines on the Planet You’ve stepped on it, ignored it, and tried to eradicate it from your lawn. However, this innocuous little weed is one of the most useful medicines on the planet, just begging to be harvested. There are two major types of plantain in BC, Canada: Lance and Broadleaf. It grows especially well in poor, rocky soil (such as driveways) and is often seen alongside dandelion. Plantain has often been the go-to remedy for hikers plagued by mosquitoes. Plantain is renowned for its healing effect on the digestive system. Because plantain is a gentle expectorant and high in silica, an infusion can be helpful for lung problems, coughs, and colds. Plantain is almost a panacea for the human body, treating everything from all menstrual difficulties, all digestive issues, to nearly all skin complaints, and even arthritis.
