Cooking Tip ~ Deflame Raw Onions

Here's a neat little trick I just recently learned about raw onions. If you like adding raw diced onions to dishes like egg salad, guacamole, and tuna salad but don't relish the harshness of some onions, just deflame them!

Dice your onion however fine you wish and then let them sit in a warm water bath for approximately 3-5 minutes. Strain the water out with a fine mesh strainer, then add to your dish.

The water should not be any hotter than water from your tap (you don't want to cook the onions!)

Chicken Bumblefoot Treatment ~ A Safer, Easier, Non-Surgical Procedure

Chicken Being Treated for BumblefootWe have kept chickens for approximately 7 years and have been so fortunate in all that time to never have to deal with a serious health issue with them. Unfortunately recently one of our hens developed bumblefoot and she had two spots of it on the same foot. I was so dismayed because all of the articles I had read suggested a surgical option was the only treatment. So, I jumped on the internet once again to look for another option, because I was not going to cut into her foot. It just did not seem like the right course of treatment to me.

How Does Catnip Effect Your Cat

Since catnip is a relative of the marijuana plant (in a far-off manner) the effect can be loosely compared to the high of marijuana, however catnip is entirely safe to give to your cat. The purpose of giving your cat catnip is for the cat's entertainment and enjoyment of the natural high. Catnip is an herb belonging to the Labiatae family and contains nepetalactone, which is the active chemical in catnip responsible for your cat's funny behavior. It is closely related to an active ingredient in female cat urine, which is why we must keep our cat Lilly far away from catnip.
