    Eat lots of pizza, Zach. I truly wish for you a life of much pizza. And bread and cereal. Lots. May you never want for corn, also.

    Peace, love, and granola,

    Thanks, Rich.

    Best use for citrus peels, though not very primal - infusing vodka. Mock limoncello is infused vodka with your choice of sweetener. You could even put some lemon juice in it to knock down the proof and give it some color.

    But for the life of me, I can't find a good mimic for Campari - tastes like grapefruit and sour oranges, but I can't get it right. Fun trying though.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

    Another use for orange peel. Put it in your Campari. Good stuff.

    I do eat the fuzzy jackets the kiwi are wearing... but only organic kiwi.

    I also eat the pith out of good oranges. Bitter peels, though, no.

    I also will eat the peel of squash, and of mangoes, we've had radish tops (best when small!), and garlic "scapes".

    I think somewhere along the line, we peeled fruits because it tastes better. While the zest of most citrus is deliciously concentrated and great in dishes and drinks, the white pith is bitter, though I guess you could develop a taste for it.

    And if skins on fruits are there for the protection of the fruit against predation, there's probably at least a chance that they're not great for us. I guess experimenting won't kill you - if you have a 20 lb BM afterward, you'll have your answer. And definitely report back because poop threads are some of the best. (Really.)
    About 10 years ago someone told me that the pith of orange was carcinogenic, and to this day I am still paranoid about eating it..!

    Ew Knifegill. Don't eat orange peels, banana peels or avocado pits. Ew. Those things are not food. Bitter yukky not food.

    Let the worms eat them. Put them in the compost. Then grow something delicious with the compost.

    Hey sb!

    I dunno... I am still intrigued. As far as I have ever heard, tomatoes were considered a poisonous plant for a long time by Europeans before someone challenged that idea - can you imagine Italy without the tomato now!? And the same for the potato, too, for example. Perhaps Knifegill is in the vanguard of something here.

    I have always wanted, personally, to know who first got the idea to eat some seafood sorts, especially the spiny urchin and the oyster. Think about it... (Though I do like oysters, even on the half-shell. Never tried sea urchin.)
