Re: "organic" vegetables?


Ah, Ms Kitty, you should venture out and try. Nothing better than a home-grown tomato or a really crisp jalapeno. They are to the taste buds what the sweetest Pandora vine is to the nose. Unless you smoke, of course.

Just put water in the sink or a big pan, add salt, and swish the vegetables
around in it. Salt water causes the creepy-crawlies to curl up and drop
off. Just tap water doesn't dislodge them. It's really not a big deal - you
wash vegetables before you eat them anyway, don't you?

So how does one rinse with salt water...and why isn't tap water adequate?
