[nafex] Re: experimentation in NAFEX
Interesting entry Robert H.
My take is probably a bit radical for most Nafexers but I make those
fruits and nuts a priority that produce FOOD, that is high in
nutritional value, I have to admit though that apples have kind of
snuck up on me and bit me with their charm and so I obsess about a
couple hundred different varieties with different flavors and
characteristics, not all impractical as perhaps the diversity among
them is not just for the purpose of the best flavor, some survive the
cold better and some are more disease resistant and some are earlier
to bear, to mature and the like. Last on my list of priorities, are
what I call the flavoring fruits and berries, that is they don't
produce a lot of calories and some require added sugar, such as
currants and many gooseberries, blueberries and raspberries. Of
course these have been found to be high in antioxydants, (sp?), Vit.
C or elagic acid, but in a natural environment we could collect these
in the wild.

possible in order to relieve pressure on the best places on earth,
such as the Amazon, which is being plowed up to feed an overpopulated
