You might need to put that "whole mess of boiled p-nuts" in a lock down, armed guard mode bondsman. Just a heads up! You know that's the main staple for Southern Folks and I imagine every-body's going to be awfully hungry after their long trips.

"Boiled Peanuts Whip Other Peanuts"

"Study: Boiled Peanuts Are Richer in Antioxidants Than Raw or Roasted Peanuts
By Miranda Hitti
WebMD Medical NewsReviewed by Louise Chang, MDOct. 26, 2007 -- Boiled peanuts may be the cream of the crop, besting raw peanuts or roasted peanuts in terms of nutrition.

That news comes from food scientists in Alabama, who ought to know about boiled peanuts, which are a Southern snack.

The researchers -- who included graduate student Yvonne Chukwumah and Lloyd Walker, PhD, of Alabama A&M University -- bought peanuts at a grocery store.

Their shopping list included raw Virginia peanuts in the shell, raw peanut kernels, and commercially boiled peanuts.

The scientists boiled the raw peanuts for four hours while the peanuts were still in their shell. They also dry-roasted raw peanut kernels and roasted other raw peanut kernels in oil.

Next, the scientists made an extract from each batch of peanuts.

Lab tests on the peanut extracts show that boiled peanuts had higher levels of antioxidants than the raw and roasted peanuts.

Antioxidants, which come in many forms and are found in plants, may help prevent cancer, heart disease, and other chronic conditions, note the researchers.

The commercially boiled peanuts were a bit higher in a certain antioxidant than the boiled peanuts brewed by the scientists.

When peanuts are boiled in their shell, the peanut kernel absorbs antioxidants that are in the peanut shells and skins. That can't happen with shelled, skinned peanut kernels, the researchers note.

Their findings appear in the Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry."

Well if the boiled P-nuts have antioxidants that prevent heart disease -
the Fired Frog legs must be rich in oxidants that cause it.

Sounds like a BALANCED diet!

:lol:


Little known fact:
Hot sauce lowers cholesterol! I can't find the National Enquirer article that tells about it.... but it must be true - I had a test of over 300 cholesterol - and I did a year of eating blackened, spicy, and hot sauce on everything but Rasin Bran. A year later my cholesterol was 110.

The Health Benefits of Capsaicin

Capsaicin and substances that contain it are among the most studied of substances in medical, pharmaceutical, and nutrition research. Although many of the claims have not yet been substantiated by scientific research, some of these uses have been around for hundreds of years, and they seem to work for many, many people.

Capsaicin:

1. Improves digestion by stimulating stomach secretions

2. Lowers triglycerides

3. Has a laxative effect

4. Triggers the release of endorphins

5. Unclogs stuffy noses by irritating mucus membranes

6. May reduce high blood pressure

7. May protect against some forms of cancer.

8. Diabetics Take Note!

Capsaicin contains Vitamins A and C, and beta-carotene. It's low in fat, calories and cholesterol. If you thought your diabetic diet was supposed to be boring, try spicing up your cuisine with capsaicin-based products, like hot sauce or jalapeno peppers. And if that's not enough, capsaicin also appears to increase your metabolic rate so you can burn more calories. This is an important finding for dieters. If you sprinkle cayenne pepper flakes on your low-fat pizza or soup, toss some sliced jalapeno peppers into your salad, or chop some habanero peppers into your turkey chili, you may be able to lose weight faster! You'll also benefit from the other perks: lower triglycerides and great digestion.

Improve the odds that your family will reap the health benefits of capsaicin. Keep a bottle of hot sauce on your kitchen table or counter. Low fat tortilla chips and hot sauce make a satisfying appetizer or after-school snack.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Capsicum Cures

Capsaicin has been associated with many cures that include lowering blood pressure, reducing cholesterol and warding off strokes and heart attacks, speeding up metabolism, treating colds and fevers, preventing cancer and pain control. Capsaicin is a flavorless, odorless chemical concentrated in the veins of chiles and peppers.

The seeds grow next to the veins and absorb the chemical. Contrary to popular belief, the seeds are not the hottest part of a chile. Rather, the greatest heat is found in the capsaicin oil, which is found in the membranes and near the stems of chiles plants. Removing the seeds and especially the veins can reduce the heat by up to fifty percent. Otherwise, capsaicin is virtually indestructible and can withstand freezing, cooking and time.

Experts believe that capsaicin acts on and desensitizes nerve fibers that carry pain signals throughout the nervous system. Repeated and high doses of capsaicin prevent sensory nerves from replenishing their chemical stores and they basically run out of neurotransmitters (the chemical agents that transmit the message of pain to a nerve or muscle).

I am no expert on the AAOF grounds. But what I do know is that the open area to the east of the club will be used for over flow parking for trucks and boat trailers. There will be an off duty police officer there to control traffic. there will be extra port-o-lets brought in for bathroom facilities.

Maybe DavieGSO480 or Cherpa will chime in here. I believe that they had 50 Boy scouts camp out there not to long ago with no problems.

I know that they have held BBQ's there with over 1000 people in attendance. This is not their first rodeo.

It is difficult because we cannot take reservations like a campground. And we do not know how many are going to attend. But they have delt with large numbers of people many times before.

bondsman, you are correct. you can not get to the crash site by launching at the club. You have to trailer your boat a few miles and put in on the north side of the the HWY.

If you plan on camping, come early. I know that I do not have to remind anyone of this but remember we are guests here. lets keep the area clean, not take any more space than we need. Be polite. You know the Golden Rule. I'm sure this is going to be a great event. and a good time will be had by all.

I'm planning on bringing a couple 20 lb roasted hams with mojo and a big pot of swamp taters. That's enough pork for 30-40 people.

Can S.F.W mismanagment open the levy road?? If they did it looks like you could run right up to a few hundred feet of the sight. I do not remember who said to remember the ride but not the site. I agree. Someone recomended to me that tent campers find a pice of the levy out in the area. Then you would not have to deal with stupid people. You would be in a area that only airboaters could get to. Actually, airboaters and F.W.C. But they are usually cool aslong as you don'y have a extra piece of Frog-Tail on your boat.

SFW doesn't have to open the road. you can put in right there. just load up the boat with your gear run around to the levy. Pick a spot on the levy to set up camp and your good to go, if you want to get away from all the hustle & bustle.

Hey Yall

Looking forward to spending an evening/weeking with you fine airboating folks on the 29th. I had a great time at the ceremony and it was great to put a face to the names here.

I stopped by Buds house that night, his family was just leaving and he was in an incredible mood. I stayed about an hour, talked to bud about the day, he was tired but in a fantastic mood as was nancy.

This club is the best. You folks did more than raise money and build a boat, you rebuilt a man and gave him hope once again. We seem to have a brand new bullfrog bud on our hands and everyone here is to blame.

Can't say enough about what you have done for bud and nancy.

A couple of my neighborhood friends teen boy's just volunteered to get at least 3 "legal" Swamp Cabbage Hearts, if you are interested. But they are trying to hit me up for an Airboat/Gator Hunt/ day ride also..Do you want me to take their well intended offer or not :)?.

Well I think an event like this has to have swamp cabbage. Cherpa has offered to clean and cook a big pot of it if we can just get it to him. I say we put him to work and get it to him any way we can. I can't believe with all the members on this site, the only offer we have so far is from your neighbors friends teen boys.

Tell them thank you very much. I do not know exactly where they are, but I'm sure someone on here is close to them and can get them out for a ride.
