Gotta say the stuff they carry is great and if there's interest I'll arrange some sort of a discount for KKF members.
    My interest is piqued!

    Honey is the same, they filter out the pollen to disguise country of origin because.


    Its almost all being smuggled in illegally from china, and cut with corn syrup. There is no other reason to filter out 100% of the pollen.

    Just ordered a large salad bowl, and a "Rustic" cutting board from them. Thanks for the reference. I will be buying some vinegar soon.

    I'd never heard of escolar--or its effects. Thank goodness for this forum. Did a search on it--when there's a blog on "the world's most dangerous fish" with a section titled "How not to Crap your Pants" you know it's something you might want to avoid...

    I thought most folks knew that the "white tuna" that you see on menus is escolar and that its oils have a laxative effect.
