thank you susan for the chia seed reminder.  I have some chia seeds in the pantry that are going to develop a pudding recipe.  I had a sample of Chia seed pudding at Whole Foods.  The lady soaked chia in almond milk with some agave.  Wow!  I'll use dates for sweetener, I try not to use added sweeteners.

Persimmon trick.  Persimmons are tricky at best.  Not perfectly ripe, they have this "cotton mouth" effect, and can be very bitter.  My wife, who is from the Ukraine showed this to me.  She brought 20 very hard persimmons home one day and I complained about how we were going to eat all these hard, sour persimmons.  She put them in the freezer and told me to wait and see.  After they were frozen for two days, she removed 4 and let them defrost.  They were soft, not bitter at all with a hint of sweetness, and delicious.  What ever level of sweetness the persimmons go in the freezer; they will come out a little sweeter with no "cotton mouth".  Now I never eat a sour persimmon.  They are great in smoothies.

When replacing salt with dulce do you use the same amount?

What are good substitutes for kale? I live in tropical Panama, and kale is not found here as it is too warm a climate.... HELP! (and thanks!)

How do you know when an avocado has gone bad?  I know when it is really bad, but when it starts to get streaks or is a little brown inside, is it bad?  Thanks

Hi Kesha - we highly recommend both Natural Zing and The Raw Food World. You can always find links for both sites on the right side of every page here at RFR!
