    I've gotten into wine-making, and some of it doesn't turn out as wine... all I need is an herbal fixer and I'm set.

    Piperadine found in black pepper can be used as an antifoggant. Early photographers extracted it with ether. I have the instructions somewhere in a very old photography magazine.

    WYSIWYG - At least that's my goal.

    I'd forgotten about that thread. Quite entertaining! I wished that the shallot experiments had gone further but they just sort of ended in the spin-off thread about them.

    i've a persian friend who cooks with dried persian shallots --- museer ..
    they are like heaven on earth !

    i imagined they will save photography too

    maybe the illusive darkroomexperimente will return with additional
    exotic and edible developers !

    ( i hope so too !! )

    I have a big garden and most years I grow onions, green onions, and garlic. I think next year it's time to try shallots . I'll check but mostly likely plant in the fall....
