examples, plz...

So you mean a plastic bag under the ring and band parts? Doesn't this prevent the jar from actually sealing properly?

sorry i wasn't more clear.  i think a canning jar with a good lid will give you as tight a seal as ur going to get.  you could put a poly bag over the canning jar lid and screw the ring down for insurance but the poly bag itself isn't going to stop the odor.

i'm in the filippines and i use poly bags for recycled jars, canisters, lidded cups, etc. that don't have lids with good seals/gaskets.  for instance, i have a salt jar with a plain lid (no seal) and i lay the side of a thin poly bag over the opening before i put the lid on so there are actually two thicknesses of bag.  it keeps the salt from caking.  also works for herbs/seasonings.

i have a 1liter poly jar with a plain lid that i use to get young coconut juice (buko juice) from a street vender. i put a poly bag under the lid and it keeps the juice from leaking out as long as i keep the container upright (on a motorcycle).  sometimes, i'll float a tomato or something similar in the jar; it helps to keep the juice from sloshing up the sides of the container.  i learned that trick by transporting water in open top barrels with a piece of wood floating on the water but now i'm getting off topic...

Ball/Kerr mason jars should be able to do this right?

Ball/Kerr mason jars should work with proper lids.  to make a good seal, i sometimes put a lite duty poly/produce bag over the jar opening before putting on the lid.  it also works for lids that don't have a seal.

I really never thought you would be into that Derek.. I am extremely disappointed.

Health / Re: Congested nose (lower turbinates)/ Rhinitis/ Sinusitis

I did research for "Rhinitis" or "Sinusitis", which are the diagnosis of the doctors I went to see. But I'm not sure what it really is as the medication they prescribed never cured anything.

by diagnosis ("Rhinitis" or "Sinusitis"), the passageways in your nose are plugged or reduced in size.

how about nebulizing hydrogen peroxide and lugol's iodine. focus on breathing thru the nose when nebulizing. 

or... clean the nose with a Neti Pot or Sutra Neti.

after trying the above, cut way back on all mucous producing food for a spell which might worsen the condition for a while while elimination takes place.

plz report back...

did you do an internet search for 'congested nose?'  i'm curious what your situation is; is it mucous? small passage ways?   physical damage?

as far as raw foods; how much cooked starchy foods are you eating?

how big are the pieces of meat?  8 kg sounds like a lot to mange but i suggest getting it out of the plastic asap and give it a try.  u could also freeze some to keep it from going off and deal with it later.

i've only air dried thin (1/4'') slices of beef on racks in the bottom of my fridge; i think some would  call jerky.  takes about 3 weeks to get it thoroughly dry but i start snacking on in a 4 or 5 days; tasty stuff...

you'll get some broth ideas if you search the group for bone broth and farrier rasp.  if a person wasn't concerned about temperatures, i suggest using a pressure cooker. 

also, i did an online search for pressure cooker beef bone broth and saw suggestions for handling bones.

good luck

One of the main reason seems to be this that there is no BOOK available on raw paleo diet. And no Doctor/Guru is working with people on this diet directly.

well..... u could eat it (joke).

assuming you're asking about fresh beef heart sitting on the counter;  i eat several beef hearts a month and i've never noticed a (get rid of) smell.  i air dried some in the fridge for ~3 months and the smell got a bit more meaty but not all all offensive. 

i get freshly slaughtered beef stuff from the local abattoir and the fat sometimes has a strong smell, which i don't find pleasant, but the fat is a mix of some (fat) items other than the firm white fat from the muscles; i'll check them for off smells next time i order.

to learn more about temperatures, do an internet search for ageing beef.

i don't have a dedicated fridge to hang meat like some other members (envy, envy) but i slice beef muscle and heart and air dry it on racks in the bottom drawer of the fridge (36f); makes for tasty snacks!!!  doesn't last long tho bcuz i can't not eat it.

freezer burn:
i've stored various foods in the freezer for more than a year and not had freezer burn issues.  i double bag items in poly produce bags and insert that in a 'freezer' zip lock bag, making sure to squeeze out all the air i can before i close the zip lock..

General Discussion / Re: Mincing meat SAFELY
« on: July 23, 2020, 06:58:32 pm »
Well, it makes sense that the metallic parts through which the meat goes through will contaminate it with tiny amounts of metals. Aajonus also said that metallic mincers will contaminate it.

Regarding knife, it is metals, and it is difficult to process lamb breast, which are extremely high in fat.

i do some mincing on an inexpensive home machine.
- are you asking about commercial or home mincing machines?
- what kind of contamination are you referring to, metal leaching from the mincing machine, metal particles or ???

chilling fat and muscle to near freezing will make mincing easier but the fat still builds up inside the machine.

Distilled is more like rain water so,to me,it seems more "natural".

the drinking quality of rain water has a lot to do with what's happening upwind from you.  i caught rainwater in a rainy area of panamá in the rainy season (~20ft annualy) and learned a lot.  i'm in the filipines now, the land of 3 stone fires, and i've found it pretty hard to get drinking quality rain water but again... it depends on what's upwind of you.

- it takes a few daily strong rains to get rid of the smoke flavor.
- you could do a sediment test.
- you could also filter the rain water.

Do you add anything to distilled water?

there appears to be pros and cons to drinking distilled water but, fwiw, the RBTI folks drink distilled water with lemon juice.

Why does human hair seem to grow forever? Head, beard.

i'm caucasian, european decent, with male pattern baldness living in the filipines.  i haven't shaved or cut my head hair in more than 50 years.  the end of my ponytail is 10'' from my scalp.  i never let my beard grow than 2 or 3'' from my chin becuz it gets in the way.

i occasionally see a filipino (male) with a beard and or long head hair, even dreadlocks, but that's not the custom here so it's hard to know how long their head hairs will grow.

it's not uncommon to see a filipina (female) with waist length hair and i occasionally see a filipina with knee length hair

i'm relatively new to RPD so hopefully some of the more experienced members will chime in tho everything you need to know is in the archives.  consider starting in the Omnivorous Raw Paleo Diet section: 

for starters, i'd suggest dumping the grains and trying cooked starchy veggies (squash, sweet potato, etc) and then slowly reduce the starches and increase the animal foods cooked or preferably raw.

eat the raw foods 1st in the day, cooked scratches later.

increase your animal fat intake; how much depends on the individual.  this 47year young woman is running on a two fat to one protein ratio.  watch some of her vids around one year back.

many on the group found they needed to eat more fat. i'm currently trying a mince of:
2k   beef round
2k    fat   
550g    liver
2pcs   kidney
2pcs    heart
1pcs    brain

hang in there...  you're fortunate you've discovered RPD at 23, you'll do great!

i thaw frozen meat by putting the pkg on a plate on the top shelf of the fridge, leaving it there long enough to make it easy to remove the bag, then i leave it on the top shelf until thawed to regain some of the energy it took to freeze it (it helps to cool the fridge).

as for storing it, i treat it as one would if aging meat, just leave it in the fridge uncovered.

« on: February 18, 2020, 06:48:30 pm »
All very fascinating. I eat a very diverse diet, not just animal-derived foods, so have never seen any symptoms of iron overload (or deficiency).

by the looks of our teeth, i reckon that humans are designed to eat a variety of foods RAW.

nice to have some more of the group pioneers posting; i often wonder what happened to all the members that were so active around 2009/2013.

General Discussion / Re: Convert Freezer to Meat Locker Like Derek
« on: January 30, 2020, 09:57:38 am »
here's another raw meat storing option for members that don't have room for a Derek style freezer.
i air dried a beef heart about 3 months ago and put the dried meat in a loosely closed poly bag, the kind that's used for veggies in the stores. i put the bag in the bottom drawer of my fridge and forgot about it until reading this thread today; the meat is in the same state of dryness as it was when i put it in the fridge; still a little flexible. i can't bite through it but i cut a piece off and it softens up quickly in the mouth, chews nicely and tastes about the same as before i stored it. (good stuff!!!)

the fresh raw heart was sliced into strips approx 5/10 mm thick x 20mm wide and air dried on wire racks outside in the sun. the racks were covered with a layer of sheer fabric to keep the flies off and the racks were placed on a table, the legs of which, were placed in plant trays of water to keep the ants away.  i brought the racks into the house at nite. the dried heart was stored in the fridge when it was still a little flexible.  the drying process only took a few 27?c/80?f sunny days.

the meat strips will stick to the racks for the 1st few days so i turn them over daily to keep them from ''permanently'' sticking to the racks.  it also helps to put the racks on cookie trays to catch the drips.

i've also air dried beef muscle, heart and liver, on kitchen racks, in the bottom drawer of the fridge; takes about a week.  the fridge is a frost free type and the bottom drawer is about 5?c/40?f

for anyone new to drying food, i've found that foods dry from the outside in, so before i store a newly dried food, i put the food in a closed container/bag overnite and check it the next day.  this gives the moisture content a chance to average out.  thicker/wetter foods, like fruits, might need to be checked for dryness several times before storing.

hey norawnofun...
tnx for sharing, hope u find the solution to your ills soon.   

what country and or latitude are you currently at?

For starters sorry if these type of questions are repeated, but I gotta ask.

for starters; tell the forum where you're coming from and where you're at now diet wise. also, if you have any health issues.

searching the website for ''new to raw'' will bring up some reading.
