Life and times Drying Ginger with Nadine

19 Mar

Nadine and I, decided to get started on drying this big box of ginger we procured for the Ginger-Garlic-Nori Blend, before spring start up gets too crazy around here. This ginger comes from an Organic Farm in Hawaii. In the past, I’ve had friends in Hawaii do it and send or bring it to us, but this year, we are on our own with it. So, this is what happened last night at our place! Then, this morning, we were amazed to see how quickly it had dehydrated. I haven’t weighed the wet to dry ratio yet….but i think its about 3 or 4 to one….
I am also practicing with these posts, so….forgive my non-bloggness!
Enjoy these pics.

Adventures on the Spice Trail

The Pepper Forrest Spice Company sure wants to be able to continue to send out packages to everyone in a timely, safe and efficient manner.  If you do too, please consider signing this petition!  Thank You!

Online petition – Don’t close the Forks of Salmon Post Office!.

Our rural Post Office is proposed to close in the coming months.  This will pose an extreme and costly inconvenience on the citizens and businesses of this area.  The closest Post Office where our packages would be delivered, is not only 40 miles away, it is over a very steep Mt. Pass.  This drive is 1/1/2 hours ONE WAY on a good day.  Forget it if its snowing.

The USPS is proposing a plan that the regular mail carrier would perform many of the current Post Masters duties.  They are proposing this without offering any training, or wage raise or time allowance…

The USPS is proposing a plan that the regular mail carrier would perform many of the current Post Masters duties.  They are proposing this without offering any training, or wage raise or time allowance to get the job done.  Their route is 100 miles a day, just imagine how long it will take them if they have to do business at each box?

We are seeding NOW this years crops of Paprika, Chipotle, Cayenne and other Chiles and Herbs used in our Special Blends and looking forward to a great year!  Let’s keep in touch!   Thank You!   Meui
