I’ve been thinking a lot lately about the importance of being able to cook (well!) with the staples we store. I found this and thought you might enjoy it, too:
Looks like an interesting product. This video shows how to humanely dispatch a rabbit for human consumption.
From one of the testimonials on their site:
“I had a litter ready for slaughter this morning and finally got to try out the Wringer: THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! The way my husband taught me to cull rabbits was to hit them over the back of the head with a hammer and then chop off their heads with a hatchet. I’d like to think I’m a strong woman but with all the missed hits and general pain and suffering I knew I was inflicting on my rabbits, I used to cry like a little baby when it came time to slaughter. But now I can do it all by myself and know that they truly feel no pain. One second they’re alive, next second they’re dead. And the processing station makes it so much easier to clean and dress the rabbits. It’s much more maneuverable than hooks in the hocks.
Thank you so much for inventing two wonderful products; you really are a god-send for me and my rabbits.

What if the agricultural revolution has already happened and we didn’t realize it? Essentially, that’s the idea in this report from the Guardianabout a group of poverty-stricken Indian rice and potato farmers who harvested confirmed world-record yields of rice and potatoes. Best of all: They did it completely sans-GMOs or even chemicals of any kind.
[Sumant] Kumar, a shy young farmer in Nalanda district of India’s poorest state Bihar, had — using only farmyard manure and without any herbicides — grown an astonishing 22.4 tonnes of rice on one hectare [~2.5 acres] of land. This was a world record and with rice the staple food of more than half the world’s population of seven billion, big news.
It beat not just the 19.4 tonnes achieved by the “father of rice”, the Chinese agricultural scientist Yuan Longping, but the World Bank-funded scientists at the International Rice Research Institute in the Philippines, and anything achieved by the biggest European and American seed and GM companies. And it was not just Sumant Kumar. Krishna, Nitish, Sanjay and Bijay, his friends and rivals in Darveshpura, all recorded over 17 tonnes, and many others in the villages around claimed to have more than doubled their usual yields.
