Thank you all for trying to
figure out "biave kasachten." I suspect  
Kitty's deduction is right or close
to it. I heard from Baker Creek  
today and they said, in effect, they didn't
know either but they were  
trying to find out. I told them to please let me
know as soon as soon  
whether I should dry it and smoke it or ferment it and
drink it. May  
never hear from them again, but that's where we are in our
current  
pursuit of knowledge.
