I was wondering, a lot of recipes that call for dates do not specify if they are dried or not. Should I presume they are not even when a step is to soak the dates? I have some kind of Dried Korean Dates in my and I am not sure if these will work... (more)
I understand that too much sugar is bad and that dried fruit/berries contain high concentrations of sugar. I also understand that dried fruit/berries are easy to overconsume. However, I'd love to have a carb filled snack that doesn't spoil within... (more)

I had a sweet attack and decided to be bad and ate a few sliced of dried mango. I had just landed in a new city and immediately hunted for a grocery store. I guess my craving got the better of me because I didn't check to see if the fruit was... (more)
If you have a problem with sulfur you may be able to take some molybdenum to help with this. There is a genetic polymorphism in the methylation cycle called CBS which may be at fault. Not pleasant! I don't know my CBS status (yet) but I react to... (more)
