THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Elaeagnaceae spp., Elaeagnus

Abundance: common
What: berries, seeds
How: raw, jam, jelly
Where: landscaping shrub
When: early spring
Nutritional Value: Vitamins A, Bs, C, E, lycopene, flavanoids, fatty acids, and protein

Standing in the front yard of many Texas house, elaeagnus bushes are a staple of suburban home landscaping. Their thick, evergreen foliage and tolerance of many growing conditions coupled with their low cost makes them attractive. In the fall their small but plentiful white/yellow flowers entice bees. In late winter/early spring the small, football-shaped berries are ready to eat. The top of elaeagnus leaves are green with gray spots while the bottom of the leaf is gray with copper-colored spots. Ripe berries are silvery with many tiny red dots. These berries are hidden towards the center of the bush rather than exposed and visible so you may not notice them unless you lift the branches to look.

The berries have a wonderful sweet/tart taste with a hint of astringency. Most people considering elaeagnus multiflora to have the best flavor. They are nutritional powerhouses loaded with a number of good compounds including a high concentration of lycopene. The seeds contain omega-3 fatty acids but they can be bitter in flavor and so unpalatable.

The flesh of the berries make a good jam, jelly, and fruit leather. There's no reason they couldn't be made into wine. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2006/02/elaeagnus.html on 6/22/2015]

In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Apios americana, Groundnut

Abundance: rare
What: tubers, flowers, vine tips, seedpods
How: tubers are boiled, roasted, not raw; flowers & young seedpods raw; vine tips raw or cooked
Where: moist areas
When: spring, summer, fall, winter
Nutritional Value: calories, protein
DANGERS: 1% OF THE POPULATION IS ALLERGIC TO GROUNDNUTS

Groundnuts aka hopniss are a wonderful, potato-like tubers found in moist soils all across North America, including along many Texas streams and ponds. They like river banks, where their vines will entwine anything that will support them. These vines have a rough, hairy feel to them and range in color from reddish at the base up to pale green at the newest tips. The leave are odd-pinnate which means it's a compound leaf with and five to seven (always an odd number) leaflets off the main petiole (leafstem).The purple-white flower clusters appear in late summer and continue to appear into the fall.

The edible, slow-growing tubers can be dug any time of the year as they take up to three years to reach their full size, approximately as big as a hen's egg. The individual tubers will have their highest concentration of starch in the fall, which makes them tastiest at that time. These tubers grow in chains along the roots, once you find one you can follow the root to collect many more. An single vine can produce a dozen or more tubers, most of which will be big enough to eat.

These tubers can be prepared just like potatoes which frying being my personal favorite. They are a bit more bland as well as being a little bit fibrous than regular potatoes, but salt or other seasoning helps with the flavor. Groundnut tubers are significantly higher (up to 17% by weight) in protein than potatoes, which makes them an excellent food source.

The rest of the plant is edible but the flowers, bean-like seedpods, and vine tips aren't nearly as desirable as the tubers.

Groundnuts are easy to grow in your garden or a self-watering Earth Bucket as long as you have patience and plenty of water. I have them growing in both a wet spot in my yard and an Earth Bucket as part of my permaculture food forest.

WHILE GROUND NUT TUBERS ARE AN AMAZING FOOD, APPROXIMATELY 1% OF THE POPULATION CAN DEVELOP ALLERGIES TO THEM. THIS ALLERGY CAN HIT THE FIRST TIME THEY EAT THE TUBERS OR ANY TIME THE SIT DOWN TO A MEAL OF THEM AFTER THAT FIRST TIME. THERE'S NO GOOD WAY OF TELLING IN ADVANCE IF A PERSON MIGHT BE ALLERGIC, BUT IF SOMEONE HAS AN EXTREME ALLERGY TO PEANUTS I WOULD HESITATE IN GIVING THEM ANY PART OF THE GROUNDNUT PLANT.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Arundo donax, Giant Reed

Abundance: plentiful
What: roots, leaves, young shoots
How: roots raw, cooked, ground into flour; leaves boiled; young shoots raw or cooked
Where: sunny wet ditches, moist areas
When: spring, summer
Nutritional Value: calories, minerals
Dangers: CONTAINS SMALL AMOUNT OF ALKALOID GRAMINE WHICH IS MORE TOXIC TO DOGS THAN TO HUMANS

Giant reeds look very similar to bamboo, especially towards the base. The reed is hollow like bamboo and structurally can be used in many of the same ways as bamboo though it does not have the full load-bearing strength of bamboo. Giant reeds are considered to be invasive plants and can quickly swallow any location where they get enough sun and moisture.

The roots (rhizomes) are the main edible portion of giant reeds. They contain some calories in the form of starch and even sugars, especially when still young and tender. As the roots age they become fibrous/woody. The young roots can be eaten raw, boiled, steamed, or baked. They can also be dried then ground into flour.

The leaves are edible though quite bitter. Their flavor can be mellowed by boiling. A change of water during boiling usually isn't necessary except with the most bitter of leaves.

The young shoots, when available, are used like bamboo shoots and/or asparagus. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2006/02/giant-reed.html on 6/22/2015]
In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Chenopodium album, Lamb's Quarter/Goosefoot/Pigweed

Abundance: common
What: young leaves, young stems, seeds
How: Young leaves/stems raw, stir-fried, steamed or boiled; seeds boiled like couscous or grind for flour
Where: yards, fields, disturbed areas, sunny
When: Early spring through early fall
Nutritional Value: high in vitamins A,C,K,B, minerals, and protein
DANGERS: CONTAINS SOME OXALIC ACID WHICH IS DESTROYED BY COOKING

This common weed can grows all summer long reaching a height of 5' or taller. The small leaves/stems at the growing tip of each branch are best for eating and can be harvested from spring until killed by winter frost. Seeds are harvested in late fall to early winter. It is a very nutritious plant, higher in protein, vitamins, and minerals than spinach. The mild flavor of the leaves makes them excellent for cutting the bitterness of other wild greens.

Lamb's quarter leaves can be frozen for later use. Blanch the leaves by dipping them in boiling water for one minute then quickly cool them off in ice water. Shake them dry, seal them in a freezer bag with all the air pressed out or use a vacuum sealer, then place them in the freezer. To use simply defrost and add them in to whatever you are cooking of a burst of summer nutrition!

This is a good companion crop to grow in your garden as many insects prefer to eat the leaves of lamb's quarters over the leaves of common vegetables. It sprouts very readily from seeds. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2007/05/lambsquartergoosefoot.html on 7/2/2015]
In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Duchesnea indica, Indian Strawberry

Abundance: uncommon
What: small red fruit, young leaves
How: fruit raw (tasteless/bland), leaves and flowers raw, cooked, or in a tea
Where: sunny or partially shaded fields
When: spring
Nutritional Value: minerals, low in vitamins

These bright red berries and yellow flowers appear in sunny to partially sunny areas returning to wilderness or infrequently mowed. Sadly, these fruit actually have a bland, inside taste. However, they are usually plentiful when in season and can supply a good dose of vitamins, flavanoids and antioxidants. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2008/08/indian-strawberry.html on 7/2/2015]

Post  Admin on Mon Jul 20, 2015 5:33 pm

THE RARE FRUIT TREES AND VEGETABLES:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Equisetaceae spp., Horsetails

Abundance: uncommon
What: young stems, roots
How: tea with young stems boiled in 3-4 changes of water or roots after roasting
Where: near water
When: young shoots in the spring, roots all year
Nutritional Value: minerals
Other uses: These plants contain a large amount of silica which makes them excellent for scrubbing dishes in the wild. They also contain some very astringent compounds which makes mashed-up horsetails an excellent clotting agent to help stop bleeding.
DANGERS: EQUISETACEAE SPECIES CONTAIN THIAMINASE, AN ENZYME WHICH REMOVES VITAMIN B FROM THE BODY. THIS ENZYME IS DESTROYED BY COOKING THE HORSETAILS.

These are found in large clumps in the sandy soil along Texas streams. The silicic acid found in horsetail tea is thought to strengthen the walls of blood vessels and the air sacs in lungs along with promoting regrowth of damaged joint tissue. Its astringent chemicals reduce bleeding especially in the mouth and act as a diuretic to flush out the body. Tea from the plant has a slight "black licorice" flavor. [sourc - retrieved fromhttp://www.foragingtexas.com/2007/07/horsetails.html on 7/1/2015]

In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Healing Wise ...
Lamb's Quarters -
Chenopodium album
by Susun Weed
Lamb's Quarters - Chenopodium album
by Susun Weed, c. 2009


I told the new apprentice we were having lamb's quarters for dinner.
"I won't have any. I'm a vegetarian," she replied.
With a smile, I corrected myself. "Some people call it fat hen."
"I don't eat chicken either," she responded with a frown.
"It's also called goosefoot," I countered, suppressing a grin.
"Not goose, not even the feet, do I eat," she said with force.
And I agreed, "Pigweed is a more common name for it."
"No matter what kind of animal it is, I am NOT going to eat it," she stated firmly, her eyes shining with fervor and unshed tears.
I confessed, now openly laughing. "It's a weed. A plant. A cooked green!"

Whatever you call it, Chenopodium album and its edible sisters -- there are dozens of useful species -- is a versatile weed that offers incredible amounts of nourishment to those who harvest it instead of cursing it. It is one of the most widely distributed plants in the world, tolerant of poor soils, high altitudes, and minimal rainfall. Global warming is just fine with lamb's quarters. In higher concentrations of carbon dioxide, it grows almost double in size. And that's good news for those who are in the know about its benefits.
The young, tender leaves of lamb's quarter are tasty in salads. The older leaves, stripped from their stalks and cooked in a small amount of water for thirty minutes or more, are a rich and tasty bone-building green. Left to mature, lamb's quarter plants produce copious amount of protein-rich seeds which are easy to harvest and use. The roots are used as medicine.
The goosefoot family (cheno is goose, pod isfoot) includes lamb's quarters, quinoa, spinach, red beets, sugar beets, and Swiss chard (silver beet). Indigenous peoples all over the world have made use of wild goosefoots and cultivated them, too.Chenopodium seed stores have been found in many European neolithic ruins. They were in the ritual meal feed to the Tollund Man 2000 years ago in Denmark.

In North America, Blackfoot Indians used the seeds as early as 1500CE. While both lamb's quarter greens and the seeds are firmly embedded in the cultures and meals of the Navajo, the Pueblo, all the tribes of Arizona, the Diggers of California, and the Iroquois. In South America several tamed-wild goosefoots have been created: Chenopodium quinoa and canahua for their nutritious seeds;huauzoutte for its delicious greens.
I am especially fond of lamb's quarter greens cooked. A half-cup serving (110 grams) contains over 300 mg of calcium. (Swiss chard has 88g, spinach 93g.) And 11,600 IU of vitamin A activity. (Swiss chard has 6500, spinach 8100.) Lamb's quarter greens are also an excellent source of B vitamins, especially riboflavin and folic acid. And they are more than four percent protein.
Lamb's quarter leaves enrich plants as well as people. Bio-dynamic farmers dry them and combine with equal parts dried dandelion, nettle, purslane, sage, and chamomile to make a special plant food for the autumn garden.
Depending on where you live, it may be too late to enjoy lamb's quarters greens right now. Lamb's quarters is an annual, so it doesn't last long once it has put out its tiny green flowers. But you can probably still harvest lamb's quarter seeds. I harvest protein- and mineral-rich lamb's quarter for seed in September and early October here in the Catskills. I cut the plants low to the ground and immediately put them -- heads down -- in paper bags.
When I have harvested all I want, I lay fresh paper or an old sheet on the floor, take the plants out of the paper bags, and hang them -- still heads down -- above. The seeds that fall out as the plants dry are easy to collect. I use my hands to release the seeds that don't fall out. I dehydrate the seeds in a very slow oven (110F), let them cool completely, then store them, chaff and all, in a tightly sealed glass jar.
I cook lamb's quarter seeds in with any grain that I make, such as brown rice, kasha, even quinoa. I stir lamb's quarter seeds (and nettle seeds and plantain seeds) into my morning oatmeal when I put it up to boil. I sprinkle lamb's quarter seeds to pancakes and muffins and cornbread. I add lamb's quarter seeds to soups, sauteing them with the onion at the beginning of the soup making. I throw lamb's quarter seeds into my tomato sauce, where they add so much flavor and protein that some people swear I've used meat in my sauce.
Lamb's quarter seeds are totally safe to eat, but there are two cautions to keep in mind when eating lamb's quarter leaves. All edible plants in this family -- including spinach and chard -- concentrate oxalic acid in the leaves. And oxalic acid can interfere with calcium utilization unless eating with a good source of calcium, such as cheese or yogurt, at the same meal. The roots of lamb's quarter search out and concentrate nitrogen (protein), plants growing in fields that have been heavily fertilized (with chemical fertilizers) can contain large amount of nitrites and nitrates. Fertilized plants have harmed livestock and, theoretically, could harm us.

Green blessings are all around you. And a gardener's best revenge is to eat the weeds, especially lamb's quarter..

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Hemerocallis fulva, Day Lily

Abundance: common
What: leaves, flowers, flower pods, tubers
How: young leaves-raw or cooked; flowers/pods raw or cooked; tubers-cooked
Where: sunny areas, often in flower beds but have escaped
When: summer
Nutritional Value: calories, minerals, vitamins B & C

DANGERS: THE ORIGINAL SPECIES (HEMEROCALLIS FULVA) OF DAY LILIES IS CONSIDERED EDIBLE BUT DUE TO EXTENSIVE EXPERIMENTAL BREEDING TOXIC FORMS OF DAY LILIES HAVE BEEN CREATED. IT IS SAFEST TO ONLY EAT DAY LILIES THAT YOU CAN CONFIRM ARE HEMEROCALLIS FULVA AT THE TIME OF PURCHASE (IT SHOULD SAY THE SPECIES NAME SOMEWHERE ON THE SALES TAG).

The flowers add a colorful splash to salads while the unopened flower buds are best battered then fried...but then everything is good battered then fried. Roast the tubers. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2008/08/day-lily.html on 6/22 /2015]
In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Ilex opaca, American Holly

Abundance: common
What: leaves
How: dried then made into tea
Where: shady woods
When: spring, summer, fall, winter
Nutritional Value: flavoring
DANGERS: DO NOT CONSUME BERRIES

The American holly can be found all over the woods of east Texas, and New Jersey. Growing in shade to heights up to fifty feet tall, this evergreen, pointy-leafed tree are the traditional source of Christmas wreaths.

THE BERRIES ARE SOMEWHAT TOXIC AND SHOULD NOT BE EATEN

but the dried leaves make a pleasant, slightly wintergreen-flavored tea. Let the leaves dry for at least six weeks before using for tea. waiting this long will allow the leaves' cell walls to break down some, making it easier for the flavors to seep out. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2012/05/american-holly.html on 7/1/2015]

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Ilex vomitoria, Yaupon Holly

Abundance: plentiful
What: tea from leaves
How: Dry leaves, add boiling water
Where: woods
When: all year
Nutritional Value: caffeine and antioxidants
DANGERS: AVOID THE BERRIES AS THEY WILL MAKE YOU VOMIT. DO NOT MISTAKE YAUPON HOLLY FOR THE TOXIC CHINESE PRIVET (LIGUSTRUM SINENSE).

Yaupon holly leaves are an excellent source of caffeine. There are a few different ways to prepare yaupon holly leaves for brewing tea. The easiest and most effective method for freeing the caffeine is to air-dry them by cutting of a branch, hanging it indoors in a warm, dry area (not in direct sunlight) and let the leaves dry naturally. Most of the leaves will fall off the branch as they dry so lay a towel or something under it to catch the leaves. This method can take two weeks or more depending on the temperature and humidity. Slow-drying it like this allows naturally-occurring enzymes inside the plant cells to begin breaking holes through the cell wall. These holes allow the caffeine to escape into your hot water when making tea.

Forced-drying the leaves in a dehydrator or an oven set at 200F is popular. It is fast, usually taking just a day and this quick drying but will not allow as much caffeine to be released compared to slow air-drying. Leaves done this way are somewhat similar to green tea in mouth-appeal. It doesn't taste like green tea, but it has several similar "under-flavors", if that makes any sense.

The most complex, richest flavors comes from roast-drying the leaves in an oven set at 400F. This requires some practice and experimentation. Lay the leaves on a cookie-sheet. There can be some overlap but each leaf needs some exposure to the air. Put the cookie-sheet in the oven and watch the leaves as they turn brown. The darker you let the leaves get the more roasted and complex flavors you will release. Warning: if they get too dark they have a scorched flavor.

Caffeine has recently been shown to help protect the brain from Alzheimer's disease, which is pretty dang awesome!!

Dried Yaupon holly leaves were smoked as part of assorted Native American rituals. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2008/08/yaupon-holly.html on 7/1/2015]

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Lamium amplexicaule and Lamium purpureum, Henbit

Abundance: common
What: leaves, stem, and flowers
How: raw, cooked, or tea
Where: sunny yards, urban areas
When: late fall, winter (in Houston), spring
Nutritional Value: vitamins, iron, antioxidants

Clumps of henbit begin showing up yards in mid-winter. Rarely standing over 10" tall, it's spindly form, odd-shaped leaves, and small, purple tubular flowers make it very noticeable against the brown, dead winter grass. Looking closely will reveal the oppositely-placed leaves and square, hollow stem of the mint family. It likes yards and other open, sunny areas where it can grow dense mats. The whole plant is edible either raw or cooked. It has a mild bitter/spinachy flavor. Tea made from dead nettle may induce sweating.

Use the leaves in salads but don't include the somewhat stringy stem. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2009/12/henbit.html on 7/1/2015]

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Arachis hypogaea - Cacahuate or Peanut

DANGER – SOME INDIVIDUALS ARE HIGHLY ALLERGIC TO PEANUTS – YOU SHOULD NOT EAT UNTIL YOU ARE SURE YOU ARE NOT ALLERGIC.

The peanut is native to South America. By the evidence of fossil remains, paleobotanists have determined that the peanut’s domestication must have taken place 8,000 years ago in Argentina or Bolivia or Peru, where the wildest strains of peanuts grow today. Most pre-Columbian cultures depicted peanuts in their art. When the bullying conquistadores of Spain invaded Mesoamerica they found the Aztecs growing peanuts, called in Nahuatl, the Aztec language, tlal-cacahuatl and that’s why the Spanish word for peanut is cacahuate and the French word is cacahuète. The peanut had a circuitous path to the American snack table. First, around 1800 C.E., Portuguese merchants took the plant from Brazil to Africa where it became very popular and widely grown in tropical climates. Later the peanut entered the then English colonies of North America as a favorite food of African slaves. Peanuts are a staple food in many tropical zones and are widely exported to temperate area of the world. The seeds have a delicious nutty flavor and can be eaten on their own either raw or roasted.

The seeds are commonly ground up and used as peanut butter in sandwiches etc. They can also be cooked in a variety of dishes and are also ground into a powder when they can be used with cereals to greatly improve the protein content of breads, cakes etc. The seed is very rich in protein and oil, it is also a good source of minerals and vitamins, especially the B complex. A nutritional analysis is available. A non-drying edible oil is obtained from the seed. This is one of the most commonly used edible oils is the world. It is similar in composition to olive oil and is often used in cooking, making margarines, salad oils etc. The oilseed cake is said to be a good source of arginine and glutamic acid, used in treating mental deficiencies. The roasted seed makes an excellent coffee substitute. Young pods may be consumed as a vegetable. Young leaves and tips are suitable as a cooked green vegetable. Javanese use the tips for lablab, and germinating seeds to make toge. Species in the genus Arachis have an interesting reproductive biology because the seed-containing pods mature underground instead of aerially as in most legumes. How does this happen?

The flowers don’t usually open, and are self-pollinated. After pollination, there is cell division below the young pod sending it down on a stalk and pushing it into the ground where it matures. Once mature, the two halves of the pod, each containing a seed, are pushed apart, so that the seeds grow separately in the soil. Burying the pod in this way is apparently an adaptation for promoting seed survival in dry periods. Seeds yield a non-drying, edible oil, used in cooking, margarines, salads, canning, for deep-frying, for shortening in pastry and bread, and for pharmaceuticals, soaps, cold creams, pomades and lubricants, emulsions for insect control, and fuel for diesel engines. The oil cake, a high-protein livestock feed, may be used for human consumption. Arachis hypogaea flowers are a typical peaflower in shape, 2 to 4 cm (0.8 to 1.6 in) (¾ to 1½ in) across, yellow with reddish veining. Hypogaea means “under the earth”, after pollination, the flower stalk elongates causing it to bend until the ovary touches the ground.

Continued stalk growth then pushes the ovary underground where the mature fruit develops into a legume pod, the peanut – a classical example of geocarpy. Pods are 3 to 7 cm (1.2 to 2.8 in) long, containing 1 to 4 seeds. Although flowering may commence in 30 days, 80–150 days or more are required for fruit maturation. In hand-harvest plants are pulled up and turned over on the ground or stacked or placed on racks to cure. Pods are picked and allowed to complete drying in depths of 5 cm or less on trays, or spread in the sun in the dry season tropics. In case of fully mechanized harvesting a single operation pulls up, inverts and windrows the plants where they remain a few days for preliminary drying. The pods are removed by combine machines and elevated into baskets attached to the combine or blown directly into trailing “drying wagons” which when full may be towed to a drying station where warm or ambient air is forced through the load of peanuts. In Argentina the combines pick and shell the pods in one operation so that the crop is marketed as dried seeds instead of dried pods.
The earliest archaeological records of peanuts show that prior to 2000 BC they were being cultivated in Peru, outside their wild range. By the time of the Spanish and Portuguese conquests of America, peanuts were being grown widely in the West Indies and South America but not in Central and North America. By the 1560’s, peanuts had been introduced to West Africa probably via slave ships. By the 1600’s they were being widely grown in this region. Peanuts became a particularly popular crop in Africa, Southeast Asia and China.
“Dr. George Washington Carver researched and developed more than 300 uses for peanuts in the early 1900s. Dr. Carver is considered The Father of the Peanut Industry because of his extensive research and selfless dedication to promoting peanut production and products.”

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Aruncus dioicus, Goat’s beard
Goatsbeard: Mysterious Vegetable Demystified [[NOTE – BEFORE EATING ANY ARUNCUS GENUS, BE SURE IT IS AN EDIBLE TYPE AND NOT A NONE EDIBLE TYPE]

Goatsbeard: Mysterious Vegetable Demystified
Share on facebookShare on twitterShare on emailShare on printMore Sharing Services0

Aruncus is a genus of clump forming herbaceous perennial plants in the family Rosaceae. Botanical opinion of the number of species differs, with from one to four species accepted. They are closely related to the genera Filipendula and Spiraea, and are native to mountainous damp woodland in temperate regions of the Northern Hemisphere. Creamy white plumes of flowers are produced above veined and toothed leaflets.

Aruncus dioicus (goatsbeard) occurs throughout the cooler parts of Europe, Asia and North America. In the broad sense, this is the only species in the genus, with the species below treated as synonyms or varieties of it by some botanists.
Medical uses of Goatsbeard
A poultice from the root is applied to bee stings. A tea made from the roots is used to allay bleeding after child birth, to reduce profuse urination and to treat stomach pains, diarrhea, gonorrhea, fevers and internal bleeding. Use the root tea externally to bathe swollen feet and rheumatic joints. A salve made from the root ashes can be rubbed onto sores.

Tragopogon, also known as salsify or goatsbeard, is a genus of flowering plants in the sunflower family Asteraceae that has over 140 species, including the vegetable known as salsify, as well as a number of common wild flowers, some of which are usually regarded as weeds.

Salsifies are forbs growing as biennial or perennial plants. They have a strong taproot and milky sap. They generally have few branches, and those there are tend to be upright. Their leaves are somewhat grass-like. Flower colour varies within the genus, with some yellow species, and some bronze or purple. Seeds are borne in a globe like that of a dandelion but larger, and are dispersed by the wind.

The salsifies are natives of Europe and Asia, but several species have been introduced into North America and Australia and have spread widely there. Some of the more common species of Tragopogon are known, in the regions where they are most common, by the common names goat's beard, goatsbeard, salsify, or common salsify.

The vegetable called salsify is usually the root of the purple salsify, Tragopogon
porrifolius; the root is described as having the taste of oysters (hence the alternative common name "oyster plant" for some species in this genus), but more insipid with a touch of sweetness. The young shoots of purple salsify can also be eaten, as well as young leaves.

Salsify is the edible root of the Purple Goat’s Beard plant which is native to Europe. It is a close relative of the yellow goat’s beard, which also has an edible root. Both plants are related to the dandelion and salsify is a popular vegetable.

In some places it is known as the Oyster plant or the Vegetable oyster plant. It is a member of the Asteraceae or daisy family of plants, and the purple flower looks a little like the globe artichoke. In fact, it can be substituted for artichoke hearts, or asparagus. It has a nutty flavour and the root contains inulin just like the Jerusalem artichoke, making it good for diabetics.

The roots grow in clumps and are beige-white. They are best left in the soil until you are ready to use them, but if you buy them you should use them that day, although you can keep them in a cool dark place and cover them with sand, as you might a chicory root.

The whole plant is edible and the petals are good in salads. The root can be grated and added to salads too and can be chewed like chewing gum. You can sprout the seeds to and add them to salads or sandwiches- they are good with eggs. The flowering shoots and the young shoots before the flowers appear can be cooked and eaten like asparagus. It is said that the roots have diuretic properties, so perhaps you shouldn’t eat too many of them.

It has been used in medicine to remove obstructions of the gall bladder and for jaundice, and is believed to be good for sufferers of arteriosclerosis and high blood pressure.

The 17th century herbalist, Nicholas Culpeper had this to say about Purple Goat’s Beard:-

“The virtues of this are the same as the other, only less pleasant, therefore more bitter, astringent, detersive and medicinal. This, however, may be eaten in great quantities, and so will be useful in chronic complaints. The roots are particularly specific in obstructions of the gall and the jaundice; the best way to use them is stewed like chardoons (cardoons).”

To cook them you first need to clean the roots under cold running water and peel them, putting the pieces of salsify in cold water with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice in it. You should cut them into short pieces and put them in boiling water and simmer them for about 30 minutes or until they are tender. Then drain the pieces of salsify and sauté them in a little butter.

You can also then put them in a béchamel sauce and top with cheese to brown in a moderate oven. In Greece they are sometimes served in avgolemno sauce (egg and lemon sauce) and are also served cold with carrots and peas in a vinaigrette dressing. It is low in calories but contains lots of dietary fibre, vitamins B2 riboflavin, and B6, folate and the minerals potassium, magnesium, iron and calcium.

By Becca Badgett, (Co-author of How to Grow an EMERGENCY Garden)

The goat’s beard plant (Aruncus dioicus) is a pretty plant with an unfortunate name. It is related to other common perennials we grow in the garden, such the spirea shruband meadowsweet. Its appearance is similar to the elegant astilbe. A member of the rose family, it is obvious how it came by the name of goat’s beard plant, but the name does not describe its beauty.
Goat’s beard plant was around during Roman days and earned the name of Aruncus goat’s beard. It was named by Pliny during that era. It is also native to Japan and North America. As with many native plants, it is easy to learn how to care for goat’s beard.
Goat’s Beard in the Garden
Aruncus goat’s beard provides tall, fluffy, creamy white blooms in late spring to early summer, brightening shady spots. Grow goat’s beard in the garden as a background plant, as a center feature in an island garden or even as a screen to block a view.

Goat’s beard is hardy in USDA plant hardiness zones 3-7. Grow goat’s beard in shade in the South and full sun in more northern areas. Goat’s beard in gardens is adaptable to only partial shade in some areas, but needs to be planted where it gets afternoon shade in hotter areas.
Remember to leave plenty of room when planting Aruncus goat’s beard. It can grow to 6 feet across. Height of goat’s beard plant is 3 to 6 feet.
Care for Aruncus
When learning how to care for goat’s beard, begin with planting in the right spot. Choose a location with the right sun exposure for your area.
Make sure the soil is well draining and retains moisture. For soil with too much clay orsand, add amendments before planting. Since care for Aruncus includes providing consistent moisture and rich soil, it is easier to plant Aruncus goat’s beard in the right soil from the beginning.
Goat’s beard in the garden can be used as part of an all-white garden design or as a complimentary background for colorful spring and summer blossoms. Care is simple when planted in the right place and blooms are long lasting. Give this friendly native a spot in your shady garden bed.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Capsicum annuum var. annuum, (Grossum Group) 'Keystone Giant'), Keystone Giant is a variety of Sweet pepper. 'Keystone Giant' is considered a hybrid cultivar.
Produces large, 4×4? blocky red fruit with very thick walls. Ideal use is for stuffing, although does have other fresh uses as well. Resistant to sun scald and mosaic virus. Reportedly adaptable to a range of climates.
Being a fairly low maintenance plant, Keystone Giant Sweet pepper is normally quite easy to grow provided a minimum level of care is given throughout the year. It will be helpful to note the correct soil, sun and water needs of this plant to ensure that this plant thrives.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Huazontle/Pigweed /Chenopodium Berlandieri

You’ve gotta respect Huazontle. Chenopodium Berlandieri leaves and stems are edible and absolutely delicious, with a flavor that can be compared to spinach or chard. Contains large amounts of calcium and Vitamin A and compare in nutritive value to approximately one cup of milk or one serving of spinach, also contains riboflavin, Vitamin C, and protein. Young foliage can be gathered and consumed raw. Goosefoot, huauzontle, quelite, and bledo are common names for a leafy plant that Indian tribes, indeed civilizations throughout the Americas relied upon for food. The common names refer to several annual species in the genus Chenopodium that produce thousands of seed-like fruits on a single flower stalk, as well as vitamin and mineral-packed leaves that were harvested for greens. There are dozens of species that grow in Europe and the Americas – about 29 in Texas. Huazontle belong to the family of Chenopodiums, which translates as ‘Goosefoot’ in allusion to the shape of the leaves, which some botanist has fancied to resemble the webbed feet of geese. This family of plants, though humble in appearance, includes such luminaries as Quinoa, the fabled grain of the Incas, Epazote, the Mexican bean spice and ‘Good King Henry’, a well-known potherb of the Old World.

Another species, Chenopodium berlandieri, is one of four plants that were actually domesticated in the Eastern Woodlands of North America prior to the introduction and wide utilization of corn (maize). The oldest examples of domesticated Chenopodium berlandieri predate 3500 B.P. The third domesticate, Chenopodium berlandieri subsp. nuttalliae (Huauzontle) was grown in Mexico, and is now grown commercially for its colorful (green and red) leafy foliage. Served in salads at restaurants, it now goes by the moniker, Red Aztec Spinach. The Aztec actually utilized different cultivars of this plant for the greens and the abundant fruits that were produced on tall flower stalks.

The wild type of Chenopodium berlandieri is the best studied of all the members of the genus. The foliage is rich in calcium and vitamin A, comparable to spinach. Nutritional studies are not available for wild-type seeds of Chenopodium, but studies of quinoa indicate it is comparable to wheat in energy and superior in protein because it contains more lysine and a well-balance suite of amino acids. It lacks gluten, a common allergen found in wheat. It is also higher in calcium, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, iron, copper, manganese, and zinc than any of the cereal grasses (rice, wheat, barley, oats, or corn/maize).

Aztecs prepared high protein dishes using the immature bright red seed heads and leaves. Although cultivation of the species died out in eastern North America, the plant continues to be grown as a domesticated crop in Mexico, though its cultivation has been declining. There are three varieties of the subspecies which are grown as a pseudocereal, as a leaf vegetable, and for its broccoli-like flowering shoots, respectively. Huazontle grow just about everywhere. They’re found throughout North America, Europe, and Asia. They grow in fields, forests, sidewalks. Huazontles are a great example of modern society’s ability to pick and choose forage weeds.

RECIPES:
Huazontles in Morita Sauce(appetizers)
Ingredients
1 pound huazontle bud clusters (the tops, with stems and leaves removed)
1 cup herb seasoning stuffing mix
½ cup Oaxaca cheese, shredded
2 tablespoon maize flour
3 well beaten eggs
1/2 tsp Thyme
Vegetable oil for deep frying
Blanch Huazontle florets in boiling water for 20 minutes, cool and gently press out excess water, between paper towels, being careful not to break up the bud clusters. Combine all ingredients and set aside. Then, beat egg whites until stiff; add maize flour until you create a luscious batter. Form into balls about 1 1/2 to 2 inches in diameter. Then drape the balls in the batter and shallow fry until crisp and golden. Fry 3 or 4 balls at a time, taking care not to crowd the pan too much. Cook until golden, about 4 to 6 minutes; drain on paper towels.

Smoky Red Morita Sauce
Ingredients
6 chiles morita, deveined
1 garlic clove, diced
2 jitomate saladet, diced
1/4 onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup chicken broth
Instructions
Rinse tomatoes and chiles and let dry. Take the moritas and cook them in a hot dry cast-iron skillet until they inflate and start to pop a little (about two minutes). Into the cast-iron skillet, pour water over the chiles and allow them to soften and become plumper, which will take about half an hour. Meanwhile, stir the whole tomatillos in another skillet until they blister and black spots appear. Immediately transfer them to a blender. Place the garlic, onion, chicken broth, moritas in the blender, and puree until smooth. It will be a deep red color with lots of seeds. Put the mix in a medium pot and let simmer for 10 minutes. Proceed with caution when eating this salsa -yes, it lights up your mouth upon entry, but you’ll soon see that after the initial spark it swiftly cools down to a slow simmer. Just make sure to keep a glass of water handy, because this sauce can get mucho caliente!
Gente bella, más fácil imposible!.

Huazontle Stuffed Patties
*Titita*
Ingredients
3 cups chopped Huazontle, previously cooked
½ cup jalapenos, seeded and ?nely diced
½ cup onion soup mix
1 tablespoon minced garlic
2/3 cup breadcrumbs (optional)
2 cups grated monterey jack cheese
1 tablespoon Amaranth flour
2 eggs, lightly beaten
2 tablespoon olive oil
Instruction
In a bowl mix together all ingredients except cheese. Shape the Huazontle into 8 equal 1/2-inch-thick patties. Make a slight indentation in the center of 4 of the patties to hold the cheese. Divide the monterey jack cheese into 4 equal portions, shape into disks, and set a disk in each of the 4 indentations. Top the cheese with the remaining patties and gently but firmly seal the edges to completely encase the cheese. Season the outside of the stuffed burgers lightly with salt and pepper. Grill the patties over direct medium-high heat for about 4-5 minutes per side or so, until they’re crispy-crusted all over. Don’t press on the patties while they’re cooking—you want to keep the cheese inside the burger, not on your grill. Do not repeatedly flip, flip, because they will fall apart. These patties are great with Jitomate Sauce or topped with dijon vinaigrette. Place the patties in the sauce. Do not stir but just let them sit on top of the sauce. Enjoy your Pigweed!

Salsa de Jitomate
Ingredients
3 cascabel chiles, fried lightly in oil, seeded and deveined
2 ancho chiles, fried lightly in oil, seeded and deveined
6 tomatillos, husks removed, roasted on a comal or griddle
2 tomatoes, roasted on a comal or griddle, seeds removed
1 small white onion, halved and roasted on a comal or griddle
2 large garlic cloves, roasted on a comal or griddle, then peeled
piloncillo or dark brown sugar to taste
salt to taste
Preparation
Place all ingredients in a mortar and grind to a semi-smooth consistency, or use a blender. Makes 2 cups. Heat the oil in a deep pot and add the blended ingredients. Bring to a boil and boil uncovered for 5 minutes. Taste for seasoning. If the tomatoes are acidic, add an additional tablespoon of sugar and continue cooking for 3 minutes.

Re: Almighty God’s (YHWH) Great Gift to Mankind, The Rare Fruit Trees and Herbs

Post  Admin on Sun Aug 30, 2015 8:12 pm


Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Dillenia indica (elephant apple, chulta/chalta or ouu) is a species of Dillenianative to southeastern Asia, from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka east to southwestern China (Yunnan) and Vietnam, and south through Thailand to Malaysiaand Indonesia.[1]

Botanical information
It is an evergreen large shrub or small to medium-sized tree growing to 15 m tall. Theleaves are 15–36 cm long, with a conspicuously corrugated surface with impressed veins. Its branches are used to make good firewood. The flowers are large, 15–20 cm diameter, with five white petals and numerous yellow stamens. Its characteristic round fruits are large, greenish yellow, have many seeds and are edible. The fruit is a 5–12 cm diameter aggregate of 15 carpels, each carpel containing five seeds embedded in an edible but fibrous pulp.[2][3]

Ecology
Dillenia indica produces a large hard fruit which is accessible only to the megaherbivores. An interesting study in the Buxa Tiger Reserve by ecologists Sekar & Sukumar has shown that Asian elephants appear to have a particular fondness for the fruits of D. indica, and hence an important seed dispenser for this tree.With the prospects of extinction of the elephants this tree has developed a back-up system, whereby its hard fruits that were only accessible to megaherbivores, slowly soften on the forest floor through the dry season to allow access to successively smaller animals such as macacques, rodents and squirrels. Seeds from both old and soft fruits are able to germinate well, enabling the persistence of this tree to be independent of the survival of its major megaherbivore disperser.[4]

Uses
The fruit pulp is bitter-sour and used in Indian cuisine in curries, jam (ouu khatta), and jellies.[2] It is often mixed with coconut and spices to make chutneys. It is extensively used in Dal and in fish preparations in Assam.

In India, it is not commercially cultivated, but is found wild in the Terai & Dooars region and Katha Reserve Forest (RF), Burihiding RF, Duarmara RF, Tarani RF, Dumduma RF, Nalni RF, Philobari RF, Takowani RF, Kakojan RF, Digboi RF, Bogapani RF and Upper Dihing RF. Because it is a main source of food for elephants, monkeys and deer, collection of fruit from the core areas of the forest are prohibited. Commercial sale of the fruit is also prohibited in an effort to help the food-chain system of the forest from dismantling totally.[5]

Studies have shown that Dillenia indica might be a potential source of antidiabetic agents[6]

The fruit of D. indica is rich in phenolics may provide a good source of antioxidant.[7]
Fruit extract of D.indica exhibits anti leukemic activity [8]
Bark of D.indica is a component of medicine for sores caused by mercury poisoning[9]

Vernacular names
This fruit is also known as the elephant apple, owtenga (?????) in Assamese, chalta (?????) in Bengali, ouu (??) in Oriya and Oolu in Chakma language, ???? ?? Paanca phal in Nepali, Avartaki in Sanskrit Bettadakanagal in Kannada, Uva in Tamil, Karambal in Gujarathi, Chalitha in Malayalam, Kalinga in Telugu, Hondpara in Sinhalese, Biwamodoki in Japanese, Dokshan in Chinese, Oot in Unani, Thibuta in Burmese, Simpoh in Malay

More of this tree and its uses:
Many tropical fruits that are grown in the landscape aren’t the prettiest trees as ornamentals and few have real showy flowers. The exception of that is the Dillenia; (Dillenia indica) native to tropical Asia.
The trees usually branch a few feet above the ground forming a medium spreading tree to a height of 30 feet or more. The leaves are quite large, up to 12 inches, with very prominent parallel veins and a toothed margin. The leaves are shiny dark green above and a lighter green beneath and the tree produces very attractive solitary white flowers sometimes measuring nine inches in diameter.

After it blooms a large greenish fruit forms which can measure 5 to 6 inches in diameter and at maturity can be eaten, although it is very acid and often requires cooking. The tree is useful in the landscape as a beautiful ornamental, both for it’s foliage and flowers even if you don’t eat the fruit.

The tree is readily propagated by seed, but does not flower for several years. There are no superior varieties available, but superior ones probably can be air layered or grafted on seedlings.
Trees grow over a wide range of soil conditions as long as it is well drained, but can develop severe micro nutrient problems in highly alkaline soils. Cold tolerance is fairly good and it can withstand light frosts without serious damage. Growth rates generally average from two to three feet a year and it also makes a great large container plant if you don’t want to put it in the outside landscaping.
There are few pest problems associated with Dillenia and it can be grown fairly close to salt water, but not directly on the ocean.

Re: Almighty God’s (YHWH) Great Gift to Mankind, The Rare Fruit Trees and Herbs

Post  Admin on Fri Sep 04, 2015 6:33 pm


Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Eugenia stipitata, Arazá or Araca Boi

A wonder from the Amazonas! Araza is an extremely rare New World fruit that is not widely known even in Amazonia Brazil where it is native. Eugenia stipitata includes two subspecies: stipitata, from the state of Acre in Brazil, and so/ via, which is more widely distributed from the basin of the Ucayali River in Peru. The latter seems to have been semi-domesticated in western Amazonia, although it may have originated in the southeastern portion of Amazonia. The arazá must have undergone a long process of selection by the Amerindian communities, as can be deduced from the large size of the fruit which, within the cultivated material, can be as large as 12 cm in diameter and 740 g in weight, compared with the wild populations which do not exceed 7 cm in diameter and 30 g in weight. The species is still in the full process of domestication. The two institutions which have worked most on this fruit are INIAP’s experimental station of San Roque in Iquitos, Peru, and INPA in Manaus, Brazil.

Today, the araza is cultivated on small properties throughout the basin of the Solimoes (Alto Amazonas), not as a commercial crop but as part of the complex mosaic of crops characteristic of the traditional agriculture of the region. It is relatively common on the town markets of Tefe, which is midway between Manaus and Iquitos. Arazá is used to make juices, soft drinks, ice-cream. preserves and desserts. The fruit is rarely eaten raw because of its acidity (pH 2.4 in the case of the juice). Unlike camucamu (Myrciaria dubia), more than 20 percent of whose fresh weight is represented by 2 percent of ascorbic acid. arazá’s potential is due to its intrinsic characteristics as a fruit: pleasant flavour, colour, texture and smell. The nutritional value of araza is very similar to that of oranges, with the exception of the vitamin C content which is more than double in araza.

The arazá is a shrub or small tree which grows up to 2.5 m. with a fair degree of branching from the base. The leaves are simple, opposite, elliptical to slightly oval and measure 6 to 18 x 3.5 to 9.5 cm. The apex is acuminate, the base rounded to subcordate and the primary and secondary nervations are fairly evident. The inflorescences are in axillary racemes, usually with two to five flowers which are 1 cm wide and pedicillate, have four rounded sepals and five white, oval petals. There are numerous stamens and an ovary with three or tour locules. The fruit is a subspherical berry, reaching 12 cm in diameter and weighing 750 g w hen ripe; the flesh is yellow and thin; the skin is shiny. velvety and yellow, with few seeds which are oblong and measure up to 2.5 cm. The subspecies stipitata has fewer stamens and an arboreal habit, whereas the subspecies sororia has a shrub habit and has more stamens.

*theislandfarm*
Instructions
Clean fruit and remove inner flesh and seeds. Cut into smallish chunks, about 1 inch long by 1/2 inch wide. Measure by weight or by volume. Place in pot. Araza is a very juicy fruit and doesn’t need water added. It does need sugar. Use 60% sugar by weight, for example 5 lbs of fruit and 3 lbs of sugar. Put on stove and heat, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Bring to a nice low boil. Araza, and many other fruits, will produce a foamy froth in the initial stage of the cooking process.
This froth will discolour the finished jam, always remove it with a spoon. It is excellent in cookies or for baking and one can make sorbet with it. Put the froth in a glass and when it cools a little some juice will settle to the bottom, pour this back into the jam. At some point, perhaps 15 minutes after you begin, the froth will stop and the texture of the jam will change. The boil will not be so asctive as the mixture begins to thicken. The characteristic plop plip sound of bubbling jam will be heard. The colour will begin to deepen too. Turn the heat down, and stir more frequently. After 7 minutes or so, begin to test the jam on a metal spoon. You are looking for a skin to form on the surface.
Keep testing. Soon – though this takes a little experience, you will see just the point of readiness: the jam is thicker and when you move the spoon or ladle slowly through it, the ladle will push the jam ahead of it out of the way rather than simply moving through the liquid. Or as you move the jam you will be able, for an instant, to see the bottom of the pot behind the ladle. If the jam on the ladle is forming even the slightest of skins, turn off the heat and wait for a minute or two: a skin should form on the surface of the pot. The jam is now ready and can be ladled into freshly boiled (for 10 minutes)jars. Fill to within a half inch of the top, carefully clean the rim and outside edge of the jar, screw on the freshly boiled jar lid and set aside.

Re: Almighty God’s (YHWH) Great Gift to Mankind, The Rare Fruit Trees and Herbs

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Genipapo /Genip/Genipa americana

The Hair Dye You Can Eat
Huito fruit grows across the Caribbean and all the way down to Peru. When ripe, it’s popular as a flavor for preserves and ice cream, but when it’s still green the geniposidic acid it contains makes a tenacious dye when it oxidizes, dyeing anything it touches a rich blue-black. It’s popular for both temporary tattoos and hair color, and it makes a gentle alternative to henna or indigo. So if you’re looking for lush black hair color without chemical dyes, pop by your specialty grocery and see if they have any Huito. If you can’t find the fruit but want to try the dye anyway, you can also buy huito extract (it’s sometimes also called jagua) in many health food stores.

The genipap is native to wet or moist areas of Cuba, Hispaniola, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, and from Guadeloupe to Trinidad; also from southern Mexico to Panama, and from Colombia and Venezuela to Peru, Bolivia and Argentina. Its usefulness to the Indians was reported by several European writers in Brazil in the 16th Century. It is widely cultivated in dooryards as an ornamental tree and for its fruits, but Patiño stated in 1967 that it was no longer as commonly grown in the Cauca Valley of Colombia as it had been in the past. The tree first fruited in the Philippines in 1913 and is occasionally planted there. Otherwise, it is virtually unknown in the Old World. Burkill wrote that it had been tried in the southern part of the Malay Peninsula several times but without success. It is reported in Brazil that there are varieties that bear all year. There is a shrubby form, jenipaporana, or jenipapo-bravo, no more than 10 to 13 ft (3-4 m) high, that grows in swamps along the edges of rivers and lakes in Brazil. The fruit is small and inedible.

Genipap is a small to medium-sized tropical tree. It is 8 to 20 m tall, but specimens of up to 30 meters are also found. The diameter of the trunk is 30 to 80 cm and it has thick, smooth bark. It has a dense crown and the lower branches grow more or less horizontal, with 10 to 35 cm leaves at the ends. In most of Amazon Basin the trees flower in May to September and give fruit between September and April. It takes up to one year for the fruits to mature. In most trees, bees pollinate the flowers. Its fruit is a large, rounded berry, which is 9 to 15 cm long, 7 to 9 cm wide, weighing between 200 and 400 g. It has a thin and leathery covering and a 1 to 2 cm thick layer of soft, yellow-brown pulp. The central cavity contains up to 300 seeds, enclosed in membranes. The fruit is edible only when overripe and soft to the touch, when the flavor (acid to subacid) resembles that of dried apples or quinces.

In Puerto Rico, the fruit is cut up and put in a pitcher of water with sugar added to make a summer drink like lemonade. Sometimes it is allowed to ferment slightly. A bottled concentrate is served with shaved ice by street vendors. In the Philippines, also, the fruit is used to make cool drinks, as well as jelly, sherbet and ice cream. The flesh is sometimes added as a substitute for commercial pectin to aid the jelling of low-pectin fruit juices. Rural Brazilians prepare sweet preserves, sirup, a soft drink, genipapada, wine, and a potent liqueur from the fruits. Analyses made in the Philippines many years ago show the following values for the edible portion (70%) of the fruit: protein, 0.51%; carbohydrates, 11.21%; sugar, 4.30%; ash, 0.20%; malic acid, 0.63%.

The fruit is eaten as a remedy for jaundice in El Salvador. Ingested in quantity, it is said to act as a vermifuge. The fruit juice is given as a diuretic. It is a common practice in Puerto Rico to cut up the fruits, steep them in water until there is a little fermentation, then add flavoring and drink the infusion as a cold remedy. The crushed green fruit and the bark decoction are applied on venereal sores and pharyngitis. The root decoction is a strong purgative. The seeds are crushed and added to water and taken as an emetic in Brazil. When cut, the bark exudes a whitish, sweetish gum which is diluted and used as an eyewash and is claimed to alleviate corneal opacities. The juice expressed from the leaves is commonly given as a febrifuge in Central America. The flower decoction is taken as a tonic and febrifuge.

Pepperidge Farm, which, for seven years, had used artificial colorants in its colored goldfish, switched to natural dyes in July 2010. The colored goldfish are now brightened with Huito juice concentrate, annatto extract, beet juice concentrate, paprika extract, paprika, turmeric extract, and watermelon juice concentrate, instead of blue 2, red 40, red 3 and blue 1. (There is a banner on the new bags with “Colors From Natural Ingredients” written.) [sourc - retrieved from https://zoom50.wordpress.com/ on 8/11/2015]

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Gunnera tinctoria, Nalca/Giant Rhubarb /

Gunnera tinctoria from central Chile, has leaves which are edible – just [PLEASE NOTE IT IS JUST EDIBLE, AND YOU MUST BE SURE OF THE SPECIES.}. This too is a remarkable plant. In 1834, Darwin described Gunnera tinctoria (then known as Gunnera scabra)as a plant with “... a very noble appearance”. Both species achieved Awards of Garden Merit: Gunnera manicata in 1993, and Gunnera tinctoria in 2006. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.st-andrews.ac.uk/~gdk/stabg_new/poms/2013/jun13pom.htm on 8/11/2015]

What is Gunnera Tinctoria?
If you’ve been to Chile you might have seen the gunnera tinctoria plant being sold by some people in town, selling them as a long stem plant. They call it hereNalca.
This is a Chilean rhubarb is native to the southern parts of Chile and its limits with Argentina. It’s known in most of the world as an ornamental plant that is also edible. It is a plant with large leaves that can grow up to 2 meters tall. The leaves can grow to be 2.5 meters wide. Its flowers grow in clusters on a cone shaped stem that points upward and can grow to be 1 meter tall. It flowers during spring through summer and the fruit is orange.
The eatable part of the gunnera tinctoria is the stem of the plant. This is what you see selling in the streets, without the leaves. When you buy a nalca you will see the seller peel the first layer of the plant and pass it to you with a bit of salt.

You’ll see that the middle part is white and the outer layers are pink. He will tell you to put some salt one it and bite away. The taste is a sour taste, kind of like when you eat lemon with salt, only that it’s crunchy. So if you’re the kind of person that like’s sour things then you would probably like this.

If it tastes bitter then the plant hasn’t ripened enough to eat yet. It’s a very different taste for those who like sour things so don’t put it off if it’s a bit bitter, you just got a piece that isn’t ripe, but if you try a ripe piece you’ll see that taste is worth it. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.chile-attractions.com/gunnera-tinctoria.html on 8/11/2015]
Everything about this amazing Chilean native is BIG! A super-sized perennial of prehistoric-looking, gargantuan magnitude, Gunnera tinctoria projects a bold, dignified persona.
Palmately lobed leaves with toothed and frilled margins unfurl to 5 ft. across atop thick edible stalks that emerge from underground rhizomes, rich in tannins. Launching a large cob-shaped inflorescence inhabited by tiny rusty red flowers, the enormous domed mound adds sheer mass and a coarse stiff texture to the landscape.
Although the Chilean Rhubarb sulks in high summer humidity, it is undemanding and quick to establish in moist areas, given A LOT of room and winter protection for the crowns.
Blooms September–October.
Size: 8' high x 8' wide; hardy to zone 7. [note – this nursery will have them available in November 2015 - Gunnera tinctoria, at Digging Dog} [sourc - retrieved from http://www.diggingdog.com/pages2/plantpages.php/P-1317 on 8/11/2015]
Gunnera is a truly ancient plant, having evolved some 150 million years ago, around the time of the dinosaurs. Named after Norwegian botanist Johan Ernst Gunnerus (who, by the way, described the basking shark and gave it its scientific name, Squalus maximus), Gunnera possesses glands that contain a cyanobacterium, Nostoc, which fixes nitrogen for the plant, meaning that Gunnera can live in what most plants would consider poor conditions. In fact, Gunnera is the only flowering plant in the world that has a symbiotic relationship with a cyanobacterium (all other nitrogen-fixing plant relationships are with the eukaryotic so-called “true” bacteria rather than prokaryotic cyanobacteria), making the plant of intense interest to molecular botanists. Gunnera is also of interest to indigenous peoples of the Chilean and Peruvian Andes; they eat the tender young stalks and leaves of the plant, called ‘nalcas’ in Spanish.

Native to southern Chile, Gunnera tinctoria was first brought to Ireland in 1939 as an ornamental plant. Its popularity as a garden plant grew quickly, and the plant did well since it was growing in a climate similar to its southern hemisphere home. However, despite the similarities of climatic conditions, it was growing in a community of completely different plants without its natural competitors and predators. It began to spread, and now Gunnera tinctoria is found on western Ireland’s coastal cliffs, waterways, roadsides, wet meadows and derelict gardens and fields. Propagating both by seed and by vegetative means, in early spring its leaves begin to grow and in just weeks can reach over 2 meters in height, shading all plants growing below its 2 meter wide leaves. Gunnera tinctoria is now a major threat to plant biodiversity in some areas of Ireland, because smaller plants cannot grow in the shadow created by the giant leaves. To fight the spread of this plant, Ireland is now applying herbicides to get rid of it. Bad news indeed.

Law (2003) states that, “G. tinctoria is a large, clump-forming, herbaceous plant that grows up to 2m in height. It has stout horizontal rhizomes, and massive umbrella-sized leaves on sturdy petioles. The leaves and their stems are covered in rubbery prickles. Tiny green flowers occur in early summer on conical spikes.” The Taranaki Regional Council (2003) state that, “G. tinctoria is a perennial with an exotic tropical appearance with spiny stems some 1.5 to 2m tall. The flower stems resemble elongated broccoli and number up to five per plant, standing up to 1m tall and rising from the base of the leaves (each seed head may contain in excess of 80,000 seeds). In severe winter conditions the plant dies down for the winter and grows new leaves in spring.”
Plants for a Future (2000) reports that young leaf stalks can be peeled and cooked as a vegetable or eaten raw. They are “Acidic and refreshing”. G. tinctoria also has medicinal uses as an astringent. This species can also be used as to make a black dye is obtained from the root, and has been used as a roof covering Plants for a Future, 2000). Williams et al. (2005) reports that, “In Southern Chile (at latitudes of 36º-42ºS) G. tinctoria is a delicacy associated with Mapuche Indian customs. The young petioles are commonly sold by street vendors and eaten raw, along with salt and chilli to enhance the flavour (E. Villouta pers. comm. 2004).”
In nature, all Gunnera plants form a symbiosis with a nitrogen-fixing cyanobacteria, thought to be exclusively Nostoc punctiforme. The bacteria enter the plant via glands found at the base of each leaf stalk and initiate an intracellular symbiosis which is thought to provide the plant with fixed nitrogen in return for fixed carbon for the bacterium. This intracellular interaction is unique in flowering plants and may provide insights to allow the creation of novel symbioses between crop plants and cyanobacteria, allowing growth in areas lacking fixed nitrogen in the soil.

Uses[
The stalks of G. tinctoria (nalcas), from Southern Chile and Argentina, are edible. Their principal use is fresh consumption, but also they are prepared in salads, liquor or marmalade. Leaves of this species are used in covering curanto (a traditional Chilean food). [sourc - retrieved from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gunnera on 8/11/2015]

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Lamium amplexicaule and Lamium purpureum, Henbit

Abundance: common
What: leaves, stem, and flowers
How: raw, cooked, or tea
Where: sunny yards, urban areas
When: late fall, winter (in Houston), spring
Nutritional Value: vitamins, iron, antioxidants

Clumps of henbit begin showing up yards in mid-winter. Rarely standing over 10" tall, it's spindly form, odd-shaped leaves, and small, purple tubular flowers make it very noticeable against the brown, dead winter grass. Looking closely will reveal the oppositely-placed leaves and square, hollow stem of the mint family. It likes yards and other open, sunny areas where it can grow dense mats. The whole plant is edible either raw or cooked. It has a mild bitter/spinachy flavor. Tea made from dead nettle may induce sweating.

Use the leaves in salads but don't include the somewhat stringy stem. [sourc - retrieved from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2009/12/henbit.html on 7/1/2015]

In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

NATURAL CURES FOR SOME TYPES OF CANCERS – THE GRAVIOLA AND THE PAW-PAW TREE.

[1] THE GRAVIOLA TREE, A Wonderful Gift to Mankind by Almighty God (YHWH).

Genesis 1:29-30 And God said, Behold, I have given you every herb yielding seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, in which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; to you it shall be for food: 30 and to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the heavens, and to everything that creepeth upon the earth, wherein there is life, [I have given] every green herb for food: and it was so. (American Standard Version)

There exist a wonderful tree deep in the rain forest of Brazil, the Graviola, of the family = Annonaceae, Genus = Annona, Species = Muricata, and common name of Soursop whose leaves, seeds, and fruit are very beneficial for mankind and constitute a great gift to mankind from our heavenly Father, Almighty God (YHWH).

Its fruit are a delight to eat being like white custard with a few black seeds, and its leaves can be used for making a tea that is very beneficial for mankind. How so? Both the fruit and its juice and the tea made from its leaves have strong anti-cancer properties. Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it may be possible to:

1. CONQUER SOME CANCERS WITH THIS SAFE AND EFFECTIVE ALL-NATURAL THERAPY WHICH DOES NOT CAUSE EXTREME NAUSEA, WEIGHT LOSS AND HAIR LOSS.
2. PROTECT YOUR IMMUNE SYSTEM AND AVOID SOME DEADLY INFECTIONS.
3. BOOST YOUR ENERGY AND IMPROVE YOUR OUTLOOK ON LIFE.
4. IN MANY CASES, IT EFFECTIVELY TARGETS AND KILLS MALIGNANT CELLS IN 12 TYPES OF CANCER - INCLUDING COLON, BREAST, PROSTATE, LUND, AND PANCREATIC CANCER.

THE FACT IS THAT THE TREE COMPOUNDS IN THIS TREE PROVED TO BE UP TO 10,000 TIMES STRONGER IN KILLINC SOME CANCER CELLS THAN A ADRIMYCIN, A COMMONLY USED CHEMOTHERAPEUTIC DRUG! WHAT'S MORE, UNLIKE CHEMOTHERAPY, THE COMPOUND EXTRACTED FROM THE GRAVIOLA TREE SELECTIVELY HUNTS DOWN AND KILLS ONLY CANCER CELLS.

THE AMAZING ANTI-CANCER PROPERTIES OF THE GRAVIOLA TREE HAVE BEEN EXTENSIVELY RESEARCHED, BUT THE MAJOR DRUG COMPANIES ARE NOT INTERESTED SINCE THEY CAN NOT MAKE ANY REAL MONEY ON IT AS IT IS NOT PATENTABLE.

Various parts of the Graviola tree, including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and seeds have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians is South America for the treatment of heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis.

NOTE: If growing Graviola or any other annona tree, Plac rotten fruit, tomatoes, apples, etc. under the tree several weeks prior to flowering as this may increase the population of the Nitidulid Beetls (Coloaptera Nitiduckse), the pollinator for all annona trees. Also, if deficient in iron, use iron sulfate and NOT iron oxide.

Web Resources include:

1. Clinical References and Abstracts on Graviola and Medline.
2. Clinical Research on Annonaceous acetogenins (A class of cytotoxic chemicals in Graviola)
3. Ethnobotany Data (common names, uses, countries) from the Ethnobotany Database.
4. Phytochemical information from the Phytochemical Database.
5. Pictures, Data and Cultivation Information from Purdue University.
6. Photograph from the University of Hawaii
7. Data (Common names, uses, distribution) from the USDA/ARS NPGS's GRIN taxonomic database).
8. Data (uses, distribution, wetland) from the USDA's plants database.)

Other uses and parts used, "Annona muricata L. Annonaceae. Fruit edible fresh. Leaf dcocation used for catarrh in Piura; crushed seed to kill parasites (FEO). Bar, roots and leaves are used in teas for diabetes; also used as a sedative and antispasmodic (RVM). "Creoles" use the decoction of the leaves and bark as a sedative, yet heart tonic. Elsewhere used for chills, colds, diarrhea, dysentery, dyspepsia, nervousness, palpitations, pediculosis, ringworm, sores and internal ulcers (DAW). I have found the juice very effective against mouth sores.
[reference - http://www.rain-tree.com/plants.htm]

The tree itself is a small evergreen tree of about 5 to 6 meters with large dark green and glossy leaves which likes warm tropical climates and a sufficient supply of water. All parts of the tree are used in natural medicine in the tropics including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds. Different properties are attributed to different parts of the tree. Generally the fruit and the fruit juice is used for parasites, to cool fever, to increase mother's milk after childbirth, and as an astringent for diarrhea and dysentery. The crushed seeds are used as a vermifuge and anthelmintic against internal and external parasites and worms. The leaves, bark, and roots are used or made in a tea for hypotensive and various other disorders.

Many bioactive compounds and phytochemicals have been found in the Graviola and scientist have been studying it since the 1940s. In fact, researchers re-verified Graviola's leaf hypotensive properties in rats in 1991. Studies have shown that the leaf, bark, root, stem, and seeds extracts of the Graviola are antibacterial in vitro against numerous pathogens and that the bark has antifungal properties. Graviola seeds demonstrated active antiparasit properties in a 1991 study, and a leaf extract showed to be active against malariaa, a parasite disease, in two other studies in 1990 and 1993.

In a 1976 plant screening program by the National Cancer Institute, the leaves and stem of this tree showed active cytotoxicity against many cancer cells and researchers are continuing to investigate. Much of the research on this tree focuses on a novel set of phytochemicals called 'annonaceous acetogenins.' The potent antitumor, pesticidal and/or insect antifeedant properties of these 'annonaceous acetognins' have been reported and patented. Research on various Annona species of plants has yielded many extremely potent acetogenins. Many of them have cytotoxicity with ED50 values as low as 10-9 ug/ml. Active compounds have been submitted to the NIH anti-AIDS screen by Purdue University, but the results have not been disclosed.

The Skaggs Scientific Report 1997-1998, states, 'Annonaceous acetogenins, have remarkable cytotoxic, antihumor, antimalerial, immunosuppressive, and antifeedant activities. [reference - http://www.rain-tree.com/plants.htm]

McLaughlin and associates described 14 Annona compounds that seem to be potent ATP blockers. "This study tells us how to maximize this activity, so we have a pretty good idea what compounds we'd like to try in animals with multi-drug resistant (MDR) tumore," said, McLaughlin.[reference - J. L. McLaughlin, F.Q. Alali, W. Kaaken, and G.W. Bennet, "Use of Annonaceous Acetogenins against Pesticide Resistance, disclosed to Purdeu Research Foundation, October 15, 1997, P-97059.00]
[source - Herbal Secrets of the Rainforest, By Leslie Taylor, ND, ISBN: 0-7570-0144-0 - note, I highly recommend this book to all.]

Now, Isn't it wonderful that Almighty God (YHWH) created these wonderful tree as the Graviola for mankind?

APPENDIX ON THE GRAVIOLA TREE:

[1] The Tree
What we do know is that indigenous peoples from the Amazon jungle call it the miracle tree. Regular readers may remember our report on Neem, dubbed 'the local pharmacy' in India.
Local populations have used the tree for thousands of years to treat everything from arthritis to liver problems
The Graviola tree grows five to six metres in height, and is native to South America particularly around the Amazon basin. It is also found in places such as Polynesia. The common names are Graviola, Soursop or (Brazilian) Paw Paw.
Local populations have used the bark, leaves, roots, fruit, seeds and flowers for thousands of years to treat everything from arthritis to liver problems.
For example, the fruit and seeds are used for intestinal health and the elimination of parasites. Women eat paw paw to increase lactation; teas made from root and bark help as a sedative or nerve tonic and can maintain healthy glucose levels. In Polynesia teas elevate mood and reduce depression. Almost certainly, like Noni and Aloe Vera, a high polysaccharide content is responsible for many of its effects.
The Research
The FDA has approved Graviola for use only to support immune function.
However, there are at least 11 papers we could find on clinical references to the above properties e.g. Sedative? (Bourne RR. West Indian Med J 1979 28:2); or, Immune boosting? (Wu FE various J Nat Prod 1995 June).
But, by far the largest number of studies comes from Purdue University in America where, to date, $5 million of public funds has been spent on studies.
The Cancer 'Cure'?
Several of the active ingredients kill malignant cells of 12 different types of cancer
Research has indicated, albeit 'in vitro', that several of the active ingredients (Annonaceous acetogenins) kill malignant cells of 12 different types of cancer including breast, ovarian, colon, prostate, liver, lung, pancreatic and lymphoma.
Originally listed by the National Cancer Institute in the USA in 1976, it was not until 1995 that work gained any momentum.
The NCI now supports the Purdue research. Recently this has confirmed that extracts from Graviola leaves killed cancer cells 'among six human-cell lines' and were especially effective against prostate and pancreatic cancers. Another study showed their effect against lung cancer.
The most recent study by the Catholic University in South Korea has shown that the active ingredients have 'selective cytoxicity' comparable with Adriamycin, a drug historically used for breast and colon cancer. A further study published in the Journal of Natural Products claimed Graviola was 10,000 times more effective; a third study from South Korea showed that, unlike Adriamycin, there was no negative activity on healthy cells; whilst a fourth study from Purdue (1997) stated that many cancer cells which survive classic chemotherapy by developing resistance to chemicals, were attacked none-the-less by the Graviola agents.
Dr Jerry McLaughlin, Purdue's lead researcher says that many cancer cells, over time, develop a P-glycoprotein pump to expel the chemotherapy agent before it can work. However Annona chemicals bypass this and kill the cancer cell. Dr McLaughlin has a number of videos published on the web (yes, you have to pay for them) about his findings.
All in all Purdue researchers have found dramatic activity against worms, some viruses, fungi and many cancer cell lines. A human study with 100 people is complete and to be published shortly.[SOURCE - http://www.canceractive.com/page.php?n=850]

APPENDIX TWO ON THE GRAVIOLA TREE:

How many people died in vain while this billion-dollar
drug maker concealed the secret of the miraculous Graviola tree?
If there ever was a single example that makes it dramatically clear why the existence of Health Sciences Institute is so vital to Americans like you, it's the incredible story behind the Graviola tree.
The truth is stunningly simple: Deep within the Amazon Rainforest grows a tree that could literally revolutionize what you, your doctor, and the rest of the world thinks about cancer treatment and chances of survival. The future has never looked more promising.
Research shows that with extracts from this miraculous tree it now may be possible to...
* Attack cancer safely and effectively with an all-natural therapy that does not cause extreme nausea, weight loss and hair loss
* Protect your immune system and avoid deadly infections
* Feel stronger and healthier throughout the course of the treatment
* Boost your energy and improve your outlook on life
The source of this information is just as stunning: It comes from one of America's largest drug manufacturers, the fruit of over 20 laboratory tests conducted since the 1970's! What those tests revealed was nothing short of mind numbing... Extracts from the tree were shown to:
* Effectively target and kill malignant cells in 12 types of cancer, including colon, breast, prostate, lung and pancreatic cancer.
* The tree compounds proved to be up to 10,000 times stronger in slowing the growth of cancer cells than Adriamycin, a commonly used chemotherapeutic drug!
* What's more, unlike chemotherapy, the compound extracted from the Graviola tree selectively hunts down and kills only cancer cells. It does not harm healthy cells!
The amazing anti-cancer properties of the Graviola tree have been extensively researched--so why haven't you heard anything about it? If Graviola extract is as half as promising as it appears to be--why doesn't every single oncologist at every major hospital insist on using it on all his or her patients?
The spine-chilling answer illustrates just how easily our health--and for many, our very lives (!)--are controlled by money and power.
Graviola--the plant that worked too well
One of America's biggest billion-dollar drug makers began a search for a cancer cure and their research centered on Graviola, a legendary healing tree from the Amazon Rainforest.
Various parts of the Graviola tree--including the bark, leaves, roots, fruit and fruit-seeds--have been used for centuries by medicine men and native Indians in South America to treat heart disease, asthma, liver problems and arthritis. Going on very little documented scientific evidence, the company poured money and resources into testing the tree's anti-cancerous properties--and were shocked by the results. Graviola proved itself to be a cancer-killing dynamo.
But that's where the Graviola story nearly ended.
The company had one huge problem with the Graviola tree--it's completely natural, and so, under federal law, not patentable. There's no way to make serious profits from it.
It turns out the drug company invested nearly seven years trying to synthesize two of the Graviola tree's most powerful anti-cancer ingredients. If they could isolate and produce man-made clones of what makes the Graviola so potent, they'd be able to patent it and make their money back. Alas, they hit a brick wall. The original simply could not be replicated. There was no way the company could protect its profits--or even make back the millions it poured into research.
As the dream of huge profits evaporated, their testing on Graviola came to a screeching halt. Even worse, the company shelved the entire project and chose not to publish the findings of its research!
Luckily, however, there was one scientist from the Graviola research team whose conscience wouldn't let him see such atrocity committed. Risking his career, he contacted a company that's dedicated to harvesting medical plants from the Amazon Rainforest and blew the whistle.
Miracle unleashed
When researchers at the Health Sciences Institute were alerted to the news of Graviola, they began tracking the research done on the cancer-killing tree. Evidence of the astounding effectiveness of Graviola--and its shocking cover-up--came in fast and furious...
...The National Cancer Institute performed the first scientific research in 1976. The results showed that Graviola's "leaves and stems were found effective in attacking and destroying malignant cells." Inexplicably, the results were published in an internal report and never released to the public...
...Since 1976, Graviola has proven to be an immensely potent cancer killer in 20 independent laboratory tests--yet no double-blind clinical trials, the typical benchmark mainstream doctors and journals use to judge a treatment's value--were ever initiated...
...A study published in the Journal of Natural Products, following a recent study conducted at Catholic University of South Korea stated that one chemical in Graviola was found to selectively kill colon cancer cells at "10,000 times the potency of (the commonly used chemotherapy drug) Adriamycin..."
...The most significant part of the Catholic University of South Korea report is that Graviola was shown to selectively target the cancer cells leaving healthy cells untouched. Unlike chemotherapy, which indiscriminately targets all actively reproducing cells (such as stomach and hair cells), causing the often devastating side effects of nausea and hair loss in cancer patients.
...A study at Purdue University recently found that leaves from the Graviola tree killed cancer cells among six human cell lines and were especially effective against prostate, pancreatic and lung cancers...[SOURCE - http://www.isecureonline.com/Reports/HSI/WHSIHC21/ ]

[2] THE PAW PAW TREE:

A CLOSE RELATIVE OF THIS TREE, THE PAW PAW, HAS THE SAME ANTI CANCER PROPERTIES AS FOLLOWS:

Q:
How is paw paw used for cancer treatment?
A:
QUICK ANSWER
Paw paw extract contains acetogenins, which prevent cells from making adenosine triphosphate, or ATP, and causing programmed cell death, or apoptosis, of cancer cells, according to the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Taken orally as a capsule, paw paw is a cancer protocol for newly diagnosed cancer patients, states CancerTutor.com.

FULL ANSWER
All cells in the human body require glucose and oxygen to produce ATP, or the energy the cells need to survive, notes Dr. Jerry McLaughlin for PawPawResearch.com. Cancer cells require more energy than normal cells, so when paw paw blocks production of ATP, the cancer cells essentially starve and die, while the normal cells in the body are relatively unharmed. Paw paw also kills multiple-drug resistant cells that often form in patients undergoing chemotherapy.
Due to the fact the cells are being starved to death and not poisoned, like in chemotherapy, treatment takes longer, explains CancerTutor.com. It is not a recommended protocol for fast-growing cancer patients, as it is only effective for newly diagnosed or slow-growing cancer patients.
In vitro laboratory studies show paw paw plant extract kills cancer cells, including those resistant to chemotherapy drugs such as Adriamycin, reports the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Laboratory studies also show paw paw extract negatively affects cancer cells more so than normal cells. However, experiments in mice were inconclusive, and there is very little scientific evidence to support paw paw as an effective treatment of cancer in humans. [SOURC - RETRIEVED FROM http://get.smarter.com/qa/health/paw-paw-used-cancer-treatment-706a9e81133428a7?ad=semD&an=msn_s&am=broad&o=32839 ON 9/12/2015]


Extracts are available from Sunshine Co., under Paw-Paw extract Cel Reg.

Paw Paw Cell-Reg Powerful remedy for cancer, viral and fungal infections, head lice and more... Almost half of the U.S. men and women will eventually be diagnosed with a malignant, cancerous growth. Yet, in spite of decades of research, cancer continues to take the lives of about one out of four Americans. Cancers are the result of damage (mutations) to DNA in the nucleus of our cells. In cancer, cells become so severely damaged that they lose their normal control systems for growth, cell division and death. These mutant cells replicate rapidly, consuming resources needed by other body systems, and producing excess waste for the body to deal with. Cancers will attract new blood vessels to themselves to feed their runaway appetites for nutrients needed for their out-of-control growth. Cancers can even clone themselves and, traveling through the blood stream and lymphatic system, metastasize throughout the body. What if you could take something that would selectively deprive cancer cells of the energy they need to feed their rapid growth and reproduction, without harming healthy cells? What if, as positive side-effects, this same substance could enhance the effectiveness of standard chemotherapy? As an added bonus, what if it could also help your body deal with parasitic organisms such as intestinal worms, viral infection, yeast infections and even head lice? Years of research have confirmed that substances which can accomplish these tasks can be found in the leaves, unripe fruits and twigs of the humble paw paw tree, a deciduous, fruit-bearing tree that grows in the U.S. from Missouri and Arkansas to the Atlantic coast. The spring twigs, unripe fruits and mature seeds were used by certain native Americans as a treatment for cancer, but this knowledge was never made widely known. Fortunately, a pharmacognosist working at Purdue University, Dr. Jerry McLaughlin, rediscovered the anticancer properties of paw paw. During his career Dr. McLaughlin screened over 10,000 plants for anticancer activity. The most potent anticancer plant he found was the American paw paw tree. His research suggests that paw paw extract: • Slows and stops the production of cell energy in cells by blocking the production of ATP. • Prevents the growth of new blood vessels in or near tumors. • Depletes DNA and RNA building blocks that are needed for cell division. • Kills those cells that are resistant to chemotherapy drugs. • Prevents cells from activating ATP-fueled metabolic pumps that reject chemotherapy drugs. • Is up to 300 times more potent than Taxol, without inducing weight loss. However, before you rush out and start chewing on paw paw trees, understand that amounts of the compounds which achieve these results, annonaceous acetogenins, can vary from plant to plant and month to month by a factor of 1,000. So, the best way to guarantee that you're getting the right amount of these compounds is to use the standardized extract, Paw Paw Cell-Reg. Because cancer cells use energy at 13 to 17 times the rate of healthy cells, these acetogenins are particularly lethal to cancer cells. Just like humans, the cells in our body have a time to live and a time to die. Cells can die because they are killed by injurious agents, but they can also die because they are induced to commit “suicide”—a process called apoptosis. There are built in mechanisms inside each cell that cause apoptosis when conditions are right. This process takes place naturally when certain cells are either no longer needed by the body or when they become a threat to the body. By inhibiting production of ATP inside the mitochondria of the cells, the annonaceous acetogenins from the paw paw tree trigger apoptosis in cancer cells. In other words, these compounds (found in Paw Paw Cell-Reg) “convince” cancer cells to self destruct. Paw Paw Cell-Reg has a very low toxicity to healthy cells and is well tolerated by most people. Taking too much Paw Paw Cell-Reg causes nausea and vomiting. This is built-in protection. Paw Paw Cell-Reg is not taken for cancer prevention. It should be taken by people who have actually been diagnosed with cancer. Furthermore, it does not work on tall types of cancer. It appears to work best on tumors. Although Paw Paw Cell-Reg can cause fatigue when taken by healthy people, people with cancer typically report having more energy when using Paw Paw Cell- Reg as the tumor cells no longer saps the body of glucose. When taken for cancer, Paw Paw Cell-Reg should be used as part of a comprehensive program, which should be put together with the help of qualified professionals. Using Paw Paw Cell-Reg for Cancer The suggested use of Paw Paw Cell-Reg is 4 capsules per day until after remission. Some people can tolerate 2-3 times that dose, but one should be cautious not to use too much. Best results have been obtained when Paw Paw Cell-Reg is used with Immune Stimulator and High Potency Protease (taken between meals). Women with breast cancer may want to add Breast Assured. Men with prostate cancer may want to add Men’s Formula. When doing the Paw Paw program, it is best to avoid products that are intended to increase the production of cellular energy. In particular Cellular Energy, Coenzyme Q10, IGF-1 and 7-Keto should be avoided. Some people report a rapid, measurable response to the program, while others have a slower response. Some tumors may not respond, so progress should be monitored by appropriate medical methods. Paw Paw can be used in conjunction with chemotherapy and may make chemotherapy more effective, especially in the case of tumors that have become resistant to chemotherapy. For Educational Purposes Only Distributed by: Seek appropriate professional assistance for all serious health problems. Handout prepared by Tree of Light Publishing P.O. Box 911239, St. George, UT 84791 (www.treelite.com) ©2007 May be reproduced provided it is not altered in any way. Do not use paw paw if you are or may become pregnant. Other Uses for Paw Paw Cell-Reg Paw Paw Cell-Reg may also be helpful for fighting certain types of infections. Because viruses require ATP to replicate, it may slow the progress of viral infections. Some people have found it helpful for shingles, warts and herpes. It may also be helpful for yeast infections and parasites. Typically, it is taken in lower doses for these conditions, from one to three capsules per day. Paw Paw Cell-Reg has been very effective when used topically for fungal infections, warts and herpes sores. It can be made into a salve or an ointment for this purpose (directions follow). Another use for Paw Paw Cell-Reg is to kill head lice. It is a natural insecticide and can be incorporated into a shampoo to eliminate the lice. Directions for making a lice-killing shampoo follow. This shampoo can also be used on animals to kill fleas. Paw Paw Cell-Reg can also be made into a solution and used as a natural insecticide for plants. Making a Paw Paw Salve or Lotion For a quick and easy salve, simply open 5-10 capsules of Paw Paw Cell-Reg and mix the contents into about one tablespoon of lotion or ointment (for example, Golden Salve, Black Ointment or Pau D’Arco Lotion). This simple preparation will be gritty, but effective. Apply topically as needed. If you wish to make a non-gritty salve, combine 10 capsules of Paw Paw Cell-Reg with one ounce (2 tablespoons) of isopropyl alcohol. Mix together well in a small glass container, then cover and let the mixture stand until the particles have settled to the bottom. Pour off the liquid into a saucer or dish. (Save the liquid.) Now, add two more tablespoons of alcohol to the remaining solids in the glass container. As before, cover and let stand until the particles have settled. Again, carefully pour the liquid into the saucer or dish. Discard the particles. Let the saucer or dish sit out, uncovered, until all the alcohol evaporates. You will be left with a green-brown residue, which can be mixed with one teaspoon of salve or ointment, or three teaspoons of lotion. This can then be applied topically. Store the salve or lotion in a sterile, covered containers. Making Paw Paw Shampoo To make an insecticidal shampoo for head lice or fleas, open 10 capsules of Paw Paw Cell-Reg and mix into about 2 tablespoons of shampoo. Then, add seven drops of thyme essential oil and four drops of tea tree oil. This shampoo will be gritty, but effective. To make a non-gritty shampoo you will have to dissolve the Paw Paw Cell-Reg in alcohol as described in Making a Paw Paw Salve or Lotion above. To do this, combine the contents of 10 capsules of Paw Paw Cell-Reg with one ounce (2 tablespoons) of pure grain alcohol, EverClear or isopropyl alcohol. Mix together well in a small glass container. Cover and let stand until particles have settled. Carefully pour off the liquid onto a saucer or dish. (Save the liquid.) Add 2 more tablespoons of alcohol to the remaining material in the glass container and mix well. Again, cover and let stand until the particles have settled, then carefully pour off the liquid onto the saucer or dish with the liquid from the previous extraction. Let the saucer stand until all of the alcohol has evaporated. When the alcohol has evaporated, mix six teaspoons (2 Tablespoons) of Herbal Shampoo (or another natural shampoo) into the residue on the saucer until well combined and uniform in color. Then, add 7 drops of Thyme Essential Oil and 4 drops of Tea Tree Oil to the shampoo mixture. You can make a larger batch of shampoo. However, it will take longer for evaporation of the alcohol to occur. To use the shampoo for removal of head lice follow the directions below exactly. 1. Lather two tablespoons (30 ml) of shampoo into dry hair and scalp. Long or thick hair will require one additional tablespoon of shampoo and will need to remain on head an additional 15 minutes. 2. Place shower cap/hair net on head to contain shampoo and to protect the eyes. 3. Leave shampoo lather on hair for 60 minutes. 4. Rinse shampoo thoroughly from hair and scalp. 5. Dry and comb hair thoroughly with lice comb to remove nits/lice. 6. Repeat steps 1-6 in 8 days and again in 16 days to insure thorough and complete removal. Use regular shampoo in the meantime. Use the same steps to make a flea removing shampoo for animals. If you mix the alcohol extract of Paw Paw Cell-Reg into two tablespoons of Sunshine Concentrate, you can dilute this with two quarts of water to make an insecticidal spray for plants.

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY – [Tuesday]

This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, 2 Timothy 3:1 – 3 (Authorized King James Bible; AV)

We are now living in “the last days” when most people do not have compassion. Many are cruel, love violence, and have no love for their neighbor. For example, in October 2012, Hurricane Sandy badly damaged an area of New York City. Many people did not have electricity, heat, or the things they needed. Sadly, looters stole from those who were already suffering, and witness the senseless ‘road rage’ incidents that occur ever more frequently. So all should ask themselves how they can show love and compassion to their neighbors.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Lantana spp., Lantana
.
Abundance: plentiful
What: ripe berries (dark blue colored)
How: raw or cooked
Where: sunny yards, borders, fields
When: summer, fall
Nutritional Value: low
DANGERS: LEAVES AND UNRIPE FRUIT ARE VERY POISONOUS AND EATING THEM CAN LEAD TO DEATH.

Cooked lantana berries are considered starvation food in that they aren't eaten unless there's nothing else to eat. ALL OTHER PARTS OF THE PLANT ARE DEADLY! BOIL OR TOAST THE BERRIES BEFORE EATING THEM. [SOURC - RETRIEVED FROM HTTP://WWW.FORAGINGTEXAS.COM/2006/12/LANTANA.HTML ON 7/2/2015]
In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.

Hi Everyone:

Here is a Commentary on Bountiful Trees and Vegetables God (YHWH) has provided for mankind, specifically the Laurus nobilis & Persea borbonia var. borbonia, Bay Laurel

Scientific name: Laurus nobilis & Persea borbonia var. borbonia
Abundance: plentiful
What: nuts, leaves
How: roast nuts, used leaf as seasoning
Where: woods, borders
When: leaves all year, nuts in the fall
Nutritional Value: Calcium, iron, other minerals, vitamins A, C, B6, folate.
Other uses: nuts contain a mild stimulant
Dangers: Looks similar to the very poisonous cherry laurel. The leaves of cherry laurel smell like cherry/cyanide and have toothed edges while bay laurel leaves have smooth edges and smell like Italian seasoning.

Texas has multiple types of bay trees. Around Houston the most common are sweet bay (Laurus nobilis), redbay (Persea borbonia) and laurel cherry (Prunus caroliniana). All three grow in the same environment, preferably as understory trees in moist, shaded areas. Very slow growing, most you’ll find will be small trees around 20’ tall. However, mature trees can rival oaks in size and appearance. Crushed sweet bay and redbay leaves have a wonderful bay aroma while laurel cherry smells like bitter almonds or artificial cherry scent. That bitter almond smell is poisonous cyanide and the so the leaves of the laurel cherry should not be used as a seasoning or consumed in any other manner.

Besides scent, the toxic laurel cherry trees can be distinguished from safe sweet bay and redbay by the edges of their leaves. The sweet bay and redbay leaf edges will be smooth while the dangerous laurel cherry leaves will have teeth, ranging in number from two very small ones near the base to many all along the leaf edge.

The leaves of the sweet bay and redbay are available all year long and are added to sauces and other foods where one would traditionally use bay leaves. They do have a very potent flavor, so you usually don't need to add more than 3-4. They can be used fresh or dried. Add the leaves while cooking but remove them before serving as no bay leaves should actually be eaten. Supposedly these stiff, hard leaves can penetrate an intestine.

In the fall the dark nuts are toasted and then nibbled on as a strongly-flavored snack. Remove the soft flesh from the bay nut then roll the nuts around in a very hot pan until they start to split open. Remove the outer brittle husk then return the inner meat back to the pan for a final toasting. No oil or grease is needed. These toasted nuts can also be ground and used as a seasoning.
Labels: Blue Fruit, Borders, Fall, Landscaping, Nuts, Plentiful,Seasoning, Spring, Summer, Tree, Winter, Woods,[source - retrived from http://www.foragingtexas.com/2008/08/bay-laurel_20.html html on 3/23/2015]

In Genesis 1:11-13, "And God said, Let the earth put forth grass, herbs yielding seed, and fruit-trees bearing fruit after their kind, wherein is the seed thereof, upon the earth: and it was so. 12 And the earth brought forth grass, herbs yielding seed after their kind, and trees bearing fruit, wherein is the seed thereof, after their kind: and God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, a third day.
