Well, Dan, you DID eat raw egg in the tiramis├╣, you could probably give it a try with honey :-) In Italy it's the typical grandmothers' "pick me up", when they worry about their grandchildren being undernourished. Raw egg, sugar and a splash of rhum or marsala.

Great guest article from CHG. Good linkage.

Love the pickles, too. I've had that on my list... since I'm already canning something else tomorrow, perhaps I'll do pickles as well.

And I would totally eat the raw egg and honey. Well, if I liked honey enough hehe. But the egg - I buy eggs every week from the farmers market and 90% of the time do something with eggs for Saturday lunch. And every week when I whisk those eggs in a bowl I stick the fork in my mouth after. I *love* raw egg yolk.

You're absolutely right Eleonora... I have no excuses now! ;)

Melissa, thanks. And yes, that CHG article puts a lot of things in perspective.
