    I am eating a cup of Jello right now and just looked down at it and set it down for now. Uhhh.....OK I think I am OK now. How about a fresh loaf of bread glazed with butterwort and N.Rajah juice that had a rat in it!!!

    I had Chinese food on New Year's Eve and the fortune cookie said I have a keen sense of humor...I don't know about that. How about some rice cooked in a N. rajah pitcher that used to have a rat in it? I think people have actually done that.
    Notice how no one else is joining in our little chat? I can see why.
    Anyway, Happy New Year!

    I think the pitcher gives the rice a tasty, unique flavor. I'd love to try that!
    But I think you can only drink the fluid of an unopened pitcher, because it's sterile and free of mushy rats(yuck NG!). It seems to have the same effect as aloe vera on small cuts and burns--yes I do use my N. x Coccinea for this purpose. The fluid is drank to treat arthritis I think? And poured onto the head? This is from memory.
