Re: catnip

The baby socks are a great idea, Zem.  I was wondering what would be a good 
bag.  Once upon a time I would have sewed clever ones, but my old fingers 
work that well any more.

I spread  a light layer of leaves on a folded paper towel and give it 2 
minutes at high.
If it still feels a bit limp I give it another half minute.  I have tried 
larger bunches but
they don't come out so well.  This way the leaves just drop right off with a 
good tap,
but if I have several layers the leaves stick to the stems and are harder to 
One thing to watch out for I learned the hard way.  The paper towel underlay 
a bit larger than the turntable and it shifted a bit so that it hung up 
against the side
and didn't turn.  I didn't notice until it burst into flames.  No real harm 
done, but 
it could have been a problem if I had not been right there. So now I am sure 
to keep
the paper smaller than the turntable.

How long to you "cook" it in the  microwave.  I'm sure 
mine would love some.  I buy baby socks for  stuffing with dried catnip, and 
they work great.  I just throw them away  (or wash them in the washing 
when they get dirty.  I found a small  juice glass is just the right size for 
filling the socks.  I put one of the  socks inside the glass then fold the 
top back over the outside of the glass and  pour in some catnip.  I leave 
sock to tie a knot in the top
