We were in our local farm shop the other day, and bought some "Traditional Farmhouse Recipe" Lemon Curd.

Yesterday I noticed the list of ingredients included vegetable oil, E475, Annatto, Circumin and flavourings.

Now while I can accept a bit of poetic licence, and the "flavouring" might have just been a drop of vanilla essence, though I doubt it, I was brought up in the country and I don't recall any of the local farmers' wives having large supplies of vegetable oils, E475, Annatto and Circumin lying around their kitchens!

Perhaps the label should have stated 'Traditional Farmhouse Recipe 2007' ;o)

Bit like one of our local non-organic butchers. He always as a very good stock of various type of sausages, like Olde Recipe Cumberland,Lamb and Leek, Country Style Herbs, Masala etc. Looking at the labels, seems to baffle you with science with all the additives. But they still taste an smell nice, during the cooking and eating process.

(Just did a spell check, and Masala comes up as Nasal. I wonder why!.)

Just looked up the wives cookbook for lemon curd and it only has 4 ingredients.
Butter/sugar/lemon juice and eggs.

Can't be that simple can it?

*It is popular in Japan today to drink water immediately after waking up
every morning. Furthermore, scientific tests have proven a its value. We
publish below a description of use of water for our readers. For old and
serious diseases as well as modern illnesses the water treatment had been
found successful by a Japanese medical society as a 100% cure for the
following diseases: *

*Headache, body ache, heart system, arthritis, fast heart beat, epilepsy,
excess fatness, bronchitis asthma, TB, meningitis, kidney and urine
diseases, vomiting, gastritis, diarrhea, piles, diabetes, constipation, all
eye diseases, womb, cancer and menstrual disorders, ear nose and throat
diseases. *


*1. As you wake up in the morning before brushing teeth, drink 4 x 160ml
glasses of water *

*2. Brush and clean the mouth but do not eat or drink anything for 45 minute

*3. After 45 minutes you may eat and drink as normal. *

*4. After 15 minutes of breakfast, lunch and dinner do not eat or drink
anything for 2 hours *

*5. Those who are old or sick and are unable to drink 4 glasses of water at
the beginning may commence by taking little water and gradually increase it
to 4 glasses per day. *

*6. The above method of treatment will cure diseases of the sick and others
can enjoy a healthy life. *

*The following list gives the number of days of treatment required to
cure/control/reduce main diseases: *

*1. High Blood Pressure - 30 days *

*2. Gastric - 10 days *

*3. Diabetes - 30 days *

*4. Constipation - 10 days *

*5. Cancer - 180 days *

*6. TB - 90 days *

*7. Arthritis patients should follow the above treatment only for 3 days in
the 1st week, and from 2nd week onwards - daily. *

*This treatment method has no side effects, however at the commencement of
treatment you may have to urinate a few times. *

*It is better if we continue this and make this procedure as a routine work
in our life. *

*Drink Water and Stay healthy and Active. *

*This makes sense .. The Chinese and Japanese drink hot tea with their meals
..not cold water. Maybe it is time we adopt their drinking habit while
eating!!! Nothing to lose, everything to gain... *

*For those who like to drink cold water, this article is applicable to you.

*It is nice to have a cup of cold drink after a meal. However, the cold
water will solidify the oily stuff that you have just consumed. It will slow
down the digestion. *

*Once this "sludge" reacts with the acid, it will break down and be absorbed
by the intestine faster than the solid food. It will line the intestine.
Very soon, this will turn into fats and lead to cancer. It is best to drink
hot soup or warm water after a meal. *

Whats wrong with a bit of seed pulp from the 'lip-stick' tree and the indian spice known as turmeric mixed with a daffy of glycerol reacted with fatty acids from palm,coconut or castor oil? Its all natural and vegan!
