Shelly's Seafood in Homosassa. They were telling us many folks won't even think of eating catfish. I'm not sure of the reason, perhaps because catfish are bottom feeders in warm water. But gulf catfish is really good and not at all fishy as some may think. While Gary was at the fish market one crab climbed out of a bucket. Once one crab climbs out they all climb out. It was quite a feat for them to try and round up the crab without getting bit.
lemongrass, Cymbopogon citratus. I used to grow
lemongrass in my California gardens and loved it so I got a few stalks to cook with. A Mexican visitor to my gardens told me his mother would make lemongrass tea for him if he had an upset stomach. Lemongrass is rich in vitamin A and the essential oil is used in soaps, perfumes, and as an effective non toxic insect repellent. Lemongrass should not be used by pregnant or nursing women since it stimulates menstrual flow and effects on babies nursing from breast milk are unknown.
