Coriander facts:
The aroma and flavor compound S-Linalool, a naturally occurring chemical in scented plants, is also a major component of the oils found in coriander. More than 60% of perfumed cleaning agents and hygiene products contain linalool. In addition to that, pest professionals use it in the preparation of insecticides. Some mosquito repellent products also make use of linalool. This could be one reason why some people associate the soapy taste to coriander.

Coriander also has some aldehydes that are found in soaps, detergents, and lotions as well as the bug family of insects. Soap has a taste of sodium fluoride. These aldehydes, mainly (E)-2-alkenals and n-aldehydes, are responsible for the soapy taste in coriander.
It is true that only people with certain genes can perceive this.

Once again proof that I'm a perceptive person :smug:

It really isn't.

As for troll posts, have you not see your fellow countrymen on the Virus thread?
For a "newbie" you've found your feet rather fast and seem fairly familiar with the posters.

It was only you, Bimbo, Mick and YOYO looking to politically point score. It was a good thread but you got your wish and ruined it.

I wished you'd crawl back down whatever hole you came from. :thumbup:
ah, there was a fair few others, including Duff, but never let the facts get in the way, eh?

Anyone like the Indonesian Rendang ? Delicious. Love that kerisik that's put into it
I love all of the dishes discussed in the last couple of pages, with the exception of the dried pasta baked beans combo.

Re paracetamol, according to a bod on French radio, there is a bunch of young people in their twenties hospitalised with the virus in France and one thing they have in common is they all took anti-inflammatories (paracetamol was mentioned) and this was being considered as a possible aggravating factor.

I don't think that paracetamol is an NSAID ?
Aspirin - yes
Ibuprofen - yes
Difene/Diclofene - by far the best

French authorities have warned that widely used over-the-counter anti-inflammatory drugs may worsen the coronavirus.
The country’s health minister, Olivier Véran, who is a qualified doctor and neurologist, tweeted on Saturday: “The taking of anti-inflammatories [ibuprofen, cortisone … ] could be a factor in aggravating the infection. In case of fever, take paracetamol. If you are already taking anti-inflammatory drugs, ask your doctor’s advice.”

Talking of Coriander.



Coriander, sowed 2 types yesterday.
Along with parsley, chives and mixed leaves and more kale
Some 2nd early spuds gone in as well.

Pak choi will start next weekend.

Already have peppers/aubergines/toms started



Going all in on the veggie stuff, who knows what things will be like come summer/early autumn.

Who picks all the fresh fruit/veggies over the summer be it in Spain/N Africa or here in the UK if things do get much worse.?

Paracetamol isn’t an anti-inflammatory
There are loads of NSAID’s - difene is quite a strong one but harsh on the stomach, not used as much any more

paracetamol was probably mentioned but not in the way Juddy thought or maybe the presenter got it wrong

As has been for the last two weeks in New Zealand, the only sold out item is Hand Sanitiser. Everything else including loo roll is fine.

Makes sense especially considering your age. If you survive you could possibly have lots of choice for playing around.

It's all about lemon juice apparently.

There's a special acid in it that expands the arteries when the fever strikes.

Thank me later

It’ll pass. We had mayhem in the supermarkets on Thursday and Friday but it has settled down now. Try to use online delivery or click and collect.

It's easier to get the quantities you want if you are prepared to go early. Online rationing is pretty stark

Once the idiots have filled their houses with 18 months supply of toilet paper they will have no need to go back to the shops, and the rest of us can get back to shopping normally.

Had a hangover-curing fry up at a cafe across the road from the local supermarket this morning - the c%nts were queuing en-masse for opening time and then coming out with trolley-fulls of toilet roll, it was like Black Friday shopping or something. Morons!

We do a big shop once a month. Things like tinned tomatoes. We buy 10 cans of them once a month. Your restricted to 5 at Tesco online. Other things you put on your list and check back a few hours later and it's no longer on there because it's not available anymore. So when your shop eventually comes it's clearly going to be very disappointing at the moment. No substitutes allowed as they subbed 4 tea mugs for a tea towel before. 04:00 yesterday the superstore car park was full.

I took a Coriander and Parsley plant I had grown home from work there on Friday but there is flip all natur light in the house. Maybe 3 hours direct sunlight a day. Have they any hope of surviving and what can I do to help them on their way?

Example, today I went to shop at my local supermarket and of course the bog roll selves were empty. I asked one of the shelve stackers would there be more supplies, he said two more rounds were due in today and to come back at 1pm for bog roll supplies. Sure enough bog roll was restocked and I bought what I needed. Granted the shelves were almost empty again by the time I got there.

Edit: a positive outcome from the UK’s brexiting Europe means our supply chains networks have diversified more than ever (throughout Europe/World) and less from the UK) so food / goods stocks will be plentiful.
We have our own bog roll manufacturers, one of which, according to the below article, is now running 2 shifts a day, 7 days a week producing 50,000 rolls an hour.

That's a fúck load of bog roll.

Yeah I realise it’s scary but it will calm down - people here went mental on Thursday and Friday but got it out of their system, the shelves were restocked and the supermarkets are fairly empty today and yesterday

Where was that? I popped into Portswood Sainsbury's at lunchtime a couple of times this week and it was pleasant. Not too busy, nothing I wanted sold out, although the shelves were sparce.

My son says there is lots of chatter on social media that the Gardai are going to impose a full lockdown from tomorrow ... so can we leg it down to Tesco’s ?

I asked him what does he want to get ?

He has no idea, he has gone away to think about it ... :lol: :lol: :lol:
