Useful Kitchen Tips

I am copying this from the Jan/Feb 2011 Coutryside and small stock journal...thought it might be useful for some of you.
"1. Minor Cuts: Apply ground black pepper to stop bleeding. No, it won't sting.
2. Burns: Immediately apply ice wrapped in damp cloth until the pain stops. It may take hours, but there will be no scar.
3. Warts: Make a paste by mixing baking soda with spirits of camphor in a capped container. Apply paste to wart every night and cover with bandage. Remove bandage in the morning. This method also works on stubborn plantar warts on bottom of feet. Here, you may have to use bunion relief pads to relieve pressure. Also shave down top of wart with razor blade to reduce pressure. This works when all else fails, e.g. acid, burn, freeze, radiation, and X-rays. If paste container dries out, add a little bit of rubbing alcohol to paste.
4. Eating raw, cruciferous veggies (Bok Choy, broccoli, Brussel sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, kale, or radish), are bad fr your thyroid gland. Only eat these veggies if they are steamed or cooked.
5. Commercial potatoes are sprayed with a (poisonous) sprouting inhibitor. Peel potatoes before cooking then. Cooking with peels on forces poison into potato's flesh. Ditto for French Fries. Don't eat them unless you grow your own potatoes.
6. A cucumber's skin is mildly poisonous and its pointed seeds will irritate gastro-intestinal tract. Peel and seed before eating cucumbers.
7. All parts of deadly nightshade plants (except the edible fruit) are poisonous. This group includes egg plant, okra, bell pepper, potato and tomato.
8. The green parts of are poisonous. Cut off all green parts, no not eat them.
9. Vinegar will keep you from getting food poisoning. Start meal with a salad drenched in vinegar-based dressing or carry a small flask of vinegar with you to add to your drinking water. Sip from glass during meal. Vinegar is anti-bacterial, anti-fungal, and anti-viral.
10. Lavendar or hops smell will help you sleep better.
11. Treat "garlic breath" with whole milk (not skim milk)."

Interesting and hopefully useful for someone reading this.
