Ask Ed: Grow Tip - The PotNog Experiment
It is the time of year again when people like to drink eggnog. Now, I always wondered, since the Christmas colors are red and green, why a thick fluid with a sort of pastel yellow hue was chosen as the beverage. I just don't think it's right. It should be green!
I have a method that will certainly brighten your holiday spirits, make you jolly, and color your drink to match your holiday cheer!-- well, I thought I did.
I began my experiments on making egg nog green using some leaf and trim that I had lying around.
First I ground it up in a coffee grinder until it was a very fine consistency.
I added a teaspoon of this to a cup of egg nog in a blender and let it rev.
To my disappointment, the egg nog barely changed color. Fail.
Next, we took a teaspoon of the ground pot and heated it in a microwave with butter to make pot butter.
We added this to the egg nog thinking that this would make it turn more green.
To our disappointment, it was subjectively either no greener or slightly greener, or just slightly greener than the original.
By this time, I had had four cups of the PotNog. And even though it might be off white or yellow-- not green --it certainly makes the holidays jollier! It is because of all of the cream in the eggnog, it is very effective and comes on very quickly.
