A new FISH protocol with increased sensitivity for physical mapping with short probes in plants. (1/38)

Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) is a well-established technique used for the detection of specific DNA regions, that has been applied to interphase nuclei, pachytene and metaphase chromosomes as well as to extended DNA fibres. This technique allows the physical mapping of specific DNA sequences both on individual chromosomes and extended fibres. A new FISH protocol is described here that enhances the sensitivity of the method. Probes for small unique DNA sequences of less than 2 kb give high signal-to-noise ratio with this method, and can be visualized easily by means of conventional fluorescence microscopy.  (+info)

Two novel oligosaccharides formed by 1F-fructosyltransferase purified from roots of asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.). (2/38)

Two novel oligosaccharides, tetra-and penta-saccharides were synthesized by fructosyl transfer from 1-kestose to 4G-beta-D-galactopyranosylsucrose with a purified 1F-fructosyltransferase of asparagus roots and identified as 1F-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-4G-beta-D-galactopyranosylsucrose, O-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2-->1)-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-O-[beta-D-galactopyranosy l-(1-->4)]-alpha-D-glucopyranoside and 1F(1-beta-D-fructofuranosyl)2-4G-beta-D-galactopyranosylsucrose, [O-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-(2-->1)]2-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-O-[beta-D-galactopyran osyl-(1-->4)]-alpha-D-glucopyranoside, respectively. Both oligosaccharides were scarcely hydrolyzed by carbohydrase from rat small intestine. Human intestinal bacterial growth by 1F-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-4G-beta-D-galactopyranosylsucrose was compared with that by the tetrasaccharides, stachyose and nystose. Bifidobacteria utilized 1F-beta-D-fructofuranosyl-4G-beta-D-galactopyranosylsucrose to the same extent as stachyose or nystose. On the other hand, the unfavorable bacteria, Clostridium perfringens, Escherichia coli and Enterococcusfaecalis, that produce mutagenic substances did not use the synthetic oligosaccharide.  (+info)

Expression and function of cell wall-bound cationic peroxidase in asparagus somatic embryogenesis. (3/38)

Cultured asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L. cv Y6) cells induced to regenerate into whole plants through somatic embryogenesis secreted a 38-kD protein into cell walls. The full-length cDNA sequence of this protein (Asparagus officinalis peroxidase 1 [AoPOX1]) determined by reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction showed similarity with plant peroxidases. AoPOX1 transcripts were particularly abundant during early somatic embryogenesis. To evaluate the in vivo function of AoPOX1 protein, purified recombinant AoPOX1 protein was reacted with a series of phenolic substrates. The AoPOX1 protein was effective in the metabolism of feruloyl (o-methoxyphenol)-substituted substrates, including coniferyl alcohol. The reaction product of coniferyl alcohol was fractionated and subjected to gas chromatography-mass spectrometry analysis and (1)H-nuclear magnetic resonance analysis, indicating that the oxidation product of coniferyl alcohol in the presence of AoPOX1 was dehydrodiconiferyl alcohol. The concentration of dehydrodiconiferyl alcohol in the cultured medium of the somatic embryos was in the range of 10(-8) M. Functions of the AoPOX1 protein in the cell differentiation are discussed.  (+info)

Three differentially expressed basic peroxidases from wound-lignifying Asparagus officinalis. (4/38)

The activity of ionically bound peroxidases from an asparagus spear increased from 5-24 h post-harvest. Isoelectric focusing showed that the post-harvest increase of the total peroxidase activity was due to the increase of several distinct isoperoxidases. Concomitantly, a decrease in the activity of two anionic peroxidases was observed. Peroxidases with pI 5.9, 6.4 and 9.2 were detected only at 24 h post-harvest, whereas four peroxidases, with pI 8.7, 8.1, 7.4, and 6.7, detected throughout the time-course, increased in their activity. Histochemical staining demonstrated that lignin and peroxidase activity were located in the vascular bundles throughout the period of measurement. Lignin was detected in the cell walls of the protoxylem in the vascular bundles of the asparagus stem. A cDNA library of mRNA isolated from asparagus spears 24 h post-harvest was screened for peroxidases using homologous and heterologous probes. Three clones were isolated and the corresponding mature asparagus peroxidases displayed 70%, 76% and 81% amino acid sequence identity to each other. These new asparagus peroxidases are typical class III plant peroxidases in terms of conserved regions with a calculated pI >9.2, which is consistent with most basic peroxidases. One of the genes was shown to be a constitutively expressed single-copy gene, whereas the others showed an increased expression at post-harvest. The highest similarity in the amino acid sequence (71-77%) was found in peroxidases from roots of winter grown turnip TP7, to Arabidopsis AtP49, to an EST sequence from cotton fibres and to TMV-infected tobacco.  (+info)

Asparagus racemosus--an update. (5/38)

Asparagus racemosus (Shatavari) is recommended in Ayurvedic texts for prevention and treatment of gastric ulcers, dyspepsia and as a galactogogue. A. racemosus has also been used successfully by some Ayurvedic practitioners for nervous disorders, inflammation, liver diseases and certain infectious diseases. However, no scientific proof justifying aforementioned uses of root extract of A. racemosus is available so far. Recently few reports are available demonstrating beneficial effects of alcoholic and water extracts of the root of A. racemosus in some clinical conditions and experimentally induced diseases, e.g. galactogogue effect, antihepatotoxic and immunomodulatory activities. The present article includes the detailed exploration of pharmacological properties of the root extract of A. racemosus reported so far.  (+info)

Estimates of heritability in a blanched asparagus population. (6/38)

To estimate the heritability values of characters frequently used as selective criteria, 32 half-sib families obtained from selected plants of three populations of the asparagus variety Argenteuil were evaluated in a randomized complete block design. The following characters were measured: days to emergence of the first spear, number and diameter of spears, number of stalks, plant height and average weight. The values of realized heritability were estimated and were compared with those obtained by the parent-offspring regression method. Phenotypic correlation coefficients between the different variables were significant. The values of realized heritability for most of the variables were moderate to high (between 0.18 and 0.68), except for days to emergence; lower values were obtained by the regression method. As there was a high degree of heritability, additive genetic factors contributed significantly to the genetic variance, which would allow the selection of phenotypically superior plants for asparagus improvement projects.  (+info)

ISSR markers show differentiation among Italian populations of Asparagus acutifolius L. (7/38)

BACKGROUND: Asparagus acutifolius L. is a dioecious and native plant species, widely distributed in the Mediterranean Basin. It is known for its fine flavour and could represent an important resource for cultivation programs in desert areas. Few molecular studies have been performed on this species. In the present paper, the ISSR technique was employed to study genetic diversity in Italian A. acutifolius. RESULTS: Twenty-three primers produced a total of 228 polymorphic fragments used to evaluate genetic variation. FST (0.4561) and Theta B (0.4776) values indicate a wide genetic variation among the samples examined. The distance UPGMA tree grouped together the genotypes strictly according to their geographical origin, showing that each sample is genetically structured and can be considered a distinct population. AMOVA analysis further confirmed genetic structuring of the populations. Population-specific fragments were also detected. CONCLUSION: The results suggest that ISSR markers are useful in distinguishing the populations of A. acutifolius according to geographical origin, and confirm the importance of genetic studies for designing germplasm conservation strategies.  (+info)

Heritability and expected selection response for yield traits in blanched asparagus. (8/38)

Despite the continuous breeding that has been conducted with asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) since the beginning of the last century, there is little information on parameters for predicting direct and indirect selection response. Yield traits for blanched asparagus production were studied along a two-year period in a half-sib family population planted in Zavalla, Argentina. Half-sib family mean heritability values were low for total yield and marketable spear number (0.31 and 0.35), intermediate for marketable yield and total spear number (0.55 and 0.64), and relatively high for spear diameter and spear weight (0.75 and 0.74). An average increase in marketable yield of 15.9% is expected after each cycle of selection of the top 5% of the families. Total yield failed to express significant genetic correlations with any of the yield components; meanwhile marketable yield showed highly significant relations with market spear number (0.96) and spear weight (0.89). Indirect selection response over yield components (CRx) failed to be advantageous over direct selection (Rx), since the ratio CRx/Rx was always equal or below unity.  (+info)

Did you know that here in Chatham-Kent we are the number two producer of asparagus in all of Ontario? Thanks go to the Asparagus Farmers of Ontario (www.asparagus.on.ca) for the valuable information they provided for this article.. Asparagus is a spring vegetable and a member of the Lily family, which includes onions, garlic, leeks, turnips and gladioli. Asparagus shoots arise from underground crowns that are planted about eight inches deep. Under ideal weather conditions, an asparagus shoot, or spear, can grow 25 cm (10 inches) in a 24-hour period. If not harvested, the shoots grow into tall fern like plants with small red seeds. Once the shoot starts to leaf out the stems become woody and inedible. Asparagus is a long-lived crop that can be productive for 15 or more years if given proper care.. Asparagus is a perennial plant that is native to the ...
Asparagus are the growing shoots of a fern-like plant. Asparagus has a delicate flavor and diuretic properties.. One distinctive problem with asparagus is that a constituent chemical of the plant is metabolised and excreted in the urine, giving it a distinctive, mildly unpleasant odour. Apparently not everyone who eats asparagus produces the odor, but also not everyone is able to smell the odor once it is produced. [1] Many people prefer not to eat asparagus because of this effect, as it can put a damper on an otherwise romantic evening.... There are three different common varieties of asparagus sold in the markets which are actually the same plant grown under different conditions. Green asparagus is left exposed to the air so that it grows normally. White asparagus is piled high with straw as it grows so that the shoots remain pale. The flavour is identical, but some people believe that the white asparagus is more tender and flavourful. Finally, a purple asparagus is occasionally seen, ...

Asparagus is extremely nutritious and has many health benefits! Purple Passion has many similar characteristics to green asparagus but offers something new for the asparagus connoisseur. It is a unique asparagus variety especially suited to the asparagus enthusiast, whether home gardener or commercial grower. The spears produced have several qualities which make it quite different than common green asparagus. The deep-burgundy coloration produced in these spears is most striking. This variety has a 20% higher sugar content and is often eaten raw. Provides excellent purple color if added to salads raw, but turns green when cooked. Some upscale restaurants garnish salads with Purple Passion. When cooked, the sweetness gives this asparagus a mild, nutty flavor. The spears are generally larger and much more tender than its green counterpart. The vascular bundles have less lignin per spear which makes the spears less stringy. This also allows the cook to use the whole spear and not waste the ...
Asparagus is a familiar vegetable for many, with its distinct green stalks that end in a scaly bunch at the tip. Also known as sparrow grass, Asparagus officinalis is a perennial flowering plant that grows in smooth shoots from a short, woody root stock. It can reach a height of 59 inches, and is fleshy and about as thick as a finger. Asparagus is native to central and southern Europe, the Middle East, western Siberia, and northern Africa.. Used for food and folk wellness traditions since 3000 B.C.E., asparagus has quite the rich history. It was used as a sacred offering in ancient Egypt, and an asparagus recipe is featured in one of the oldest surviving cookbooks-Apicius-compiled in the late 3rd century A.D. In traditional wellness, the rhizome was boiled into a tea, and the roots and vegetable used for supporting healthy fluid balance, cleansing, and urinary health.**. ...
Knowledge of genetic diversity and population structure in breeding material could be of great importance for crop improvement. Inheritance of molecular markers has been proved to be a powerful tool for verifying or discovering the parentage of cultivars in several crops. The present study aimed to undertake an extended parentage analysis using a large sample of garden asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) cultivars based on single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers. In the past, asparagus cultivars began to be classified according to the countries and towns where they were grown. Among them, Violet Dutch is one of the oldest asparagus cultivars, considered to be the genetic stock from which several modern cultivars were derived. Starting from Violet Dutch, the breeding programs branched in two directions, yielding Argenteuil and Braunschweiger varieties in France and Germany, respectively. These lines became very important in all breeding programs, replacing older populations and landraces. ...
The yield of asparagus spears in the spring is directly related to the previous years fern growth. Asparagus can be harvested for a limited time (two weeks) the second year after planting crowns (three years from seed transplants). Overharvesting one year can weaken the plant and decrease yields the following year. Three years after planting the crowns, asparagus can be harvested for five to eight weeks. Each year during the first several years of production, marketable yields will increase if the planting is managed properly. Average yields for most commercial plantings in Missouri are 2,000 to 2,500 pounds per acre (46 to 57 pounds per 1,000 square feet).. Asparagus spears are best harvested by snapping them off by hand near ground level. Most growers prefer to snap the asparagus spears when they reach 7 to 9 inches in length in cool weather (less than 70 degrees F), or 5 to 7 inches in warmer weather (more than 70 degrees F), and the spear tip is tight. Snapping will break the spear cleanly ...
Salt to taste. For the Asparagus,. Take a pot of salted water and bring to a boil. Blanch the asparagus for 8 seconds and place them in a heat proof baking dish (pyrex). Then add the persimmon mushroom to the pan with the asparagus. Next place the rest of the ingredients in a pot (vinegar, oil, salt, capers, olives, ramp bottoms and garlic. Bring the pot up to a hard simmer (195 degrees) and then pour all the contents over the white asparagus so that it covers them completely. Take a piece of plastic wrap and cover leaving one edge open for steam to escape. Let it cool and marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Let the asparagus come back to room temperature if you let it go over night. For the Ramp top sauce,. Blanch ramp tops, and parsley for 15 seconds and then shock in a ice bath. Let it cool completely and then ring out excess water. Place in a blender with aioli and puree until smooth. If you need to add a little water to make a smooth consistency then do so. Season with salt and set ...
Rapid transportation, global trading and improvements in storage have eliminated seasonality from our table, making it possible to get almost any fruit or vegetable at any season. As an example of this, fresh white asparagus produced in Peru is in the stores this winter. Americans favor green asparagus, whereas white (blanched) asparagus seems more popular in Europe. Blanching dates back to at least the 16th century when asparagus forced in cellars became popular with the rich aristocracy. The word blanching is also used in food preservation when vegetables are immersed in boiling water to kill the tissue. But in the gardening sense, blanching is used to describe growing plants in the dark. Asparagus is a labor-intensive crop to produce and blanching requires more of it, so blanched spears cost about 15 percent more than the green form. Blanched plants have a slightly milder taste (some describe it as nuttier) than green asparagus. Chlorophyll forms only in the presence of light so blanched ...
The production area of white asparagus comprises 16 % of all vegetable crops in Germany. The economic important asparagus (Asparagus officinalis L.) is known for its high quality loss in postharvest. In order to protect convenience asparagus, i.e. fresh-cut peeled white asparagus from rapid deterioration in respect to phytopathological fungi, nutritive and sensory compounds the commercial use of film packaging might be an important tool. However, the film packaging materials used commercially do often not fulfil product physiological concerns. Therefore, the influence of different film packaging materials (four polypropylene-films, two biological degradable films and one coating) with different permeabilities for CO2 and O2 was investigated for unpeeled and peeled white asparagus during storage (2, 3, and 4 days) at temperatures of 2°C, 10°C, 20°C. Changes in the following quality attributes were studied: colour, texture, fresh weight, dry weight, structural carbohydrates (pectic substances, ...
Starting asparagus harvesting as early as possible is one thing, but it is quite another to reliably stop harvesting at the most opportune moment.. Asparagus are basically stems that are still under the soil, without any leaves above. This is why growing asparagus stems costs the plant such an enormous amount of energy. Plants have to store that energy in their roots during the previous year, which is why growers cannot just continue harvesting the stems. Cutting too long means that there will be insufficient energy left in the roots to obtain enough stems above the ground. These stems grow needles (the leaves) that the asparagus plant uses to create sugars, which are then stored in the roots to be used during the next season.. The traditional saying that asparagus should not be cut after 24 June, Saint Johns Day, no longer applies. Growers are able to start harvesting much earlier in the year than was previously the case. This is made possible, for example, by using the residual heat of an ...

Note - Make this dish ahead of time (keep the asparagus and dressing separate) and pop it in your hosts microwave just before serving. ...
Rich in iron, calcium, vitamin C and B vitamins, asparagus is one of the first crops to be harvested in the spring and if given the proper planting and care, an asparagus bed can be productive for 15 years or more.. The asparagus bed should be located in a sunny area. It can tolerate a little shade but the plants will not be as vigorous and full sun helps minimize the threat of disease.. The soil will need to have a pH of 6.5 to 7.5 and be well drained as soggy soil will cause root rot.. It is best to have the soil tested as asparagus will not grow well if the soil pH is less than 6.0 and the levels of potassium and phosphorus are also important to the vigor of asparagus.. Bare root asparagus crowns can be planted mid-April through late May after the soil has warmed up to about 50 degrees. Dig a furrow about 10 to 12 inches deep and wide enough to accommodate the spread of the root system. Apply to the bottom of the furrow about 1 pound of 0-46-0 (triple superphosphate) or 0-20-0 ...
Asparagus is s spring vegetable thats packed with nutrition. When you buy asparagus, either fresh from the farmers market or grocery store, its best to eat it right away.

Salt to taste. Pour the chicken stock in a low pan and add the asparagus. Poach the asparagus, uncovered, until they are tender, about 5 minutes. Allow to cool in the stock. Drain the asparagus but retain the stock.. Place the asparagus in a food processor with ½ cup of the stock. Add the garlic, lemon juice and salt to taste. Process to a smooth puree. (Add more lemon juice if you like.). Spoon the cream into a small freezer container and freeze for up to 8 months. To defrost, place in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, or place in a bowl of water on the counter. Do not leave at room temperature for more than four hours.. Note: Save that asparagus flavored stock. It will be great thrown into your chicken stockpot, or as a flavorful liquid in stews, or even as a boiling liquid for thin spaghetti.. Indeed, Ive been fooling around a lot with asparagus lately, as they are in and beautiful. Last week I pickled a batch (theres a good recipe in my new book, Well-Preserved, which comes out next ...
I remember first discovering roasted or broiled asparagus. After years of enjoying it steamed with a little butter, I bit the bullet and oven-roasted it instead. The world was never the same.. Lets stop here and talk about roasted asparagus for a moment. Its nutty, buttery in flavor all on its own, perfectly tender and slightly sweet. One wouldnt think a vegetable could be so complex in flavor when its simply tossed with a little olive oil and salt. However, I find it hard to make asparagus any other way now.. When I first started dating my future husband, I wanted to impress him with above-par (or so I thought) cooking skills. That first meal was some kind of grilled chicken, mashed potatoes and roasted asparagus. Im sure the chicken was burned and potatoes were undercooked creating an atrocity, but the asparagus was incredible.. My asparagus cooking skills may not have won my husbands heart, but it certainly didnt hurt. Neither did going out for a Blizzard after dinner, either.. Since ...

Asparagus. There is a piece circulating the web, with no name attached, and few references that Ive had next to me for a few months. I decided to start googling to find if any studies could back it up. Sure enough, asparagus fights cancer. So we posted the original article in our Alternative Cancer Therapies: Asparagus.. In our Coconut Recipes, weve had an Asparagus Soup recipe for some time now, so this December Ive added an Asparagus and Crab soup recipe.. Iodine. Here is where my memory disorder really stands tall. Ive been writing about Iodine for about four years now, from its history, to its benefits, and Ive even reviewed a number of different forms of it (Magnascent being my personal favorite). Weve told you how it has been used successfully in treating breast cancer, prostate cancer, and benign cysts. Did I ever post it in our Alternative Cancer Therapy section? Apparently not.. Weve now posted an article originally published by the wonderful people at Breast Cancer Choices. We ...

It is important to get one-year roots because you cannot begin to harvest your asparagus until it is three to four years old. You can harves
The latest food chemistry graphic looks at the chemistry of asparagus - specifically, why it causes the urine of some (but not all) people to smell. Over the past forty years several papers have been published on the subject, and several studies undertaken, to try and determine the chemical compounds responsible, and though there is still no definitive verdict as to the manner in which these compounds are formed, it has been suggested that they all form from asparagusic acid.. Asparagusic acid is, unsurprisingly considering the name, a chemical found exclusively in asparagus, and absent in other related vegetables. This has made it an obvious candidate for being the origin of the peculiar effect that asparagus has on urine. It has been suggested by recent studies that it could be metabolised in the body to produce the volatile compounds found in the urine after consuming the vegetable.. Gas chromatography-mass spectrometry was used to analyse the headspace of urine produced after consumption ...
Step 1. Boil the linguine pasta in salted water according to package directions until one minute prior to al dente. Drain and reserve ½ cup of pasta water. Set aside.. Step 2. For the sauce. While the pasta is cooking, in a separate bowl, whisk together the lemon zest, lemon juice, and olive oil together until well combined. Then add in the feta and black pepper, whisking well until the sauce combines to become creamy and mostly uniform in texture.** Set aside.. Step 3. For the asparagus. Using a large skillet at medium-high heat, add the olive oil and garlic, swirling the pan for 5 seconds (slightly toasting the garlic). Add in the asparagus, salt, and pepper, stirring frequently until the asparagus is tender-crisp, about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and place the asparagus in another bowl.. Step 4. Using the same skillet, reduce the heat to low, then add the pasta and sauce. Using tongs, toss to evenly coat the pasta with the sauce, letting the feta cheese completely melt. Spoon in a ...
Most of the vegetables I remember growing up were frozen. Some were canned, like carrots, peas, sauerkraut and, horror of all horrors, asparagus. I vowed never to allow one slimy stalk to cross my sealed, air-tight lips. Of course, time passes and there came a day when I became committed to good health and good nutrition. It was time to aspire towards the greener foods in life. I would eat asparagus. Not canned, not frozen, fresh! I distinctly remember the feeling of relief that came from my first bite of that firm, seductive stalk. A shocking revelation! A shocking difference! I immediately took another vow: I would never allow a canned vegetable to enter my kitchen pantry, save tomatoes and legumes. I have kept my vow and my long happy commitment to good health, green foods, and yes, to asparagus, remains stable. Asparagus is part of the Lily family. You probably recognize its long, tender shoots, some thin and some thick. Both are great, depending on personal preference. Few people realize ...
As a biochemist, I have made an extensive study of all aspects of cancer, and all of the proposed cures. As a result, I am convinced that asparagus fits in better with the latest theories about cancer. Asparagus contains a good supply of protein called histones, which are believed to be active in controlling cell growth. For that reason, I believe asparagus can be said to contain a substance that I call cell growth normalizer. That accounts for its action on cancer and inacting as a general body tonic. In any event, regardless of theory, asparagus used as we suggest, is a harmless substance ...
Asparagus is one of my favorite low carb veggies. Here are just a few health benefits of asparagus, plus 10 delicious asparagus recipes.
Asparagus, which is a Greek word meaning stalk or shoot, grows best in sandy, well-drained soils. Asparagus spears grow from a crown -- the root system of an asparagus plant that is grown from seed. The crown is planted about a foot deep in sandy soils.
Asparagus This delicious vegetable is expensive to buy but easy to grow. The shoots are cut below soil level when they are about 10cm (4in) long, but all cutting must cease soon after the middle of June to allow the plants to develop over the summer and build up the crowns for the following spring. Asparagus plants must not be […]. ...
One of the things that I like best about this time of year is all of the fresh locally grown asparagus! The farmers market has been full of it the last few weeks and I have been been picking some up at every opportunity. I have also been keeping an eye out for tasty sounding asparagus recipes. A while ago I came across a recipe for an asparagus, beef and shiitake mushroom stir-fry . I like stir-frys because they are simple and quick and I liked the sound of the the asparagus, beef and shiitake mushroom flavour combo. Since I have been into black bean sauce lately I decided to make the stir-fry with a black bean sauce. I like heat I also added some chili sauce. The stir fry came together quickly and tasted great! This was easily my favorite of the black bean stir-frys that I have made so far. The trick is to have everything end up cooked at the same time without overcooking anything, especially not the asparagus. You want the asparagus to be just cooked, al dente so to say ...
Records of human use of asparagus date back to the beginning of records, according to the University of Florida. Early Greek and Roman records detail growing instructions and medicinal uses. Greeks believed the plant could cure everything from toothaches to heart ailments. (California Asparagus Commission, 2005; Trowbridge, 2005; Rangarajan, 2005) The Roman emperors permanently employed people to collect asparagus from the wild and the upper class brought it with them as they conquered new lands (Boswell 1949; Austparagus, 2005). In the 1600s King Louis XIV of France ordered special greenhouses built for asparagus (Stradley, 2004 ...

A few years ago, I was introduced to a classic French salad from Lyon, aptly named Salade Lyonnaise; a perfect combination of bitter greens (typically frisée), a warm vinaigrette dressing, poached eggs, and some bacon. I knew that it would be a superb salad to showcase the asparagus I just picked up, and a great way to use up the last of the bacon I had hiding in the freezer. I am, after all, eating a more plant based diet, but from time to time, I still eat some meat, and I did not want this bacon to get freezer burnt and go to waste. I hate food waste, especially meat, since an animal gave its life to feed me.. I roasted the asparagus with olive oil and salt for about 5 minutes, because I wanted it to remain slightly crispy. I made the vinaigrette and the croutons in the same skillet where I cooked the bacon because I hate dishes and because bacon fat makes most everything taste wonderful. Then, I made poached eggs with the most perfect runny yolks.. Ive loved poached eggs since I was a ...
My fresh Salmon, Asparagus tartlets use my favourite fresh herb has to be dill and my vegetable garden is full of it and Im always looking for ways to use it (you can search for Marinated Courgette with Dill -another favourite recipe). Fresh herbs make such a fab difference to your cooking and I try to fresh herbs when they are in season. Dried herbs just dont taste like the real thing and Id much rather cook something different & seasonal. I know that you can get basil in a supermarket in December but it just isnt the same. All is not lost however if you cant do this, some fresh herbs freeze very well including dill (hoorah), parsley and coriander. Just chop them up and put in a plastic bag ( a zip lock bag is good as you are going to dip in and out of it). Pat it out so the herbs are just in a thin layer and freeze. After that, a quick scrunch means that they arent frozen in a block and easy to use as you want ...
The roots of Glycyrrhiza glabra, Withania somnifera, asparagus racemosus, and Chlorophytum borivilianum and seeds of Sesamum indicum are ayurvedic medicinal plants used in India to treat several ailments. Our previous studies indicated that these plants possess hypolipidemic and antioxidant potential. The present study was aimed at investigating the composite effects of these plants on hypercholesterolemic rats. Three different combinations (5?gm%, given for four weeks) used in this study effectively reduced plasma and hepatic lipid profiles and increased fecal excretion of cholesterol, neutral sterol, and bile acid along with increasing the hepatic HMG-CoA reductase activity and bile acid content in hypercholesterolemic rats. Further, all three combinations also improved the hepatic antioxidant status (catalase, SOD, and ascorbic acid levels) and plasma total antioxidant capacity with reduced hepatic lipid peroxidation. Overall, combination I had the maximum effect on hypercholesterolemic rats ...
Abstract: Previously isolated cDNA clones encoding glutamine synthetase (GS, EC genes from asparagus and broccoli were observed that the level of transcripts decreased in both plant species during storage. In order to identify factors regulating the postharvest deterioration of another important Asian vegetable bamboo (Phyllostachys edulis) shoot, the present study was conducted to isolate glutamine synthetase (pBA-GS) cDNA clone from a cDNA library prepared from harvested bamboo shoot using reverse transcriptase-polymerase chain reaction. The partial cDNA clone encodes an mRNA of 832 bp and the derived amino acid sequence is highly homologous to GS from rice, barely and maize. Northern blot analysis showed decrease level of pBA-GS mRNA until 9 d at 20°C, which coincided well with enzyme activity and ammonia accumulation. Results demonstrated that GS activity decrease during the postharvest storage of bamboo shoot which is a highly perishable vegetable like asparagus spears and ...

ABSTRACT: Ornamental goldfish Carassius auratus were treated with whole cell (WC), extracellular product (ECP), outer membrane protein (OMP) and biofilm (BF) vaccines developed from the virulent Aeromonas hydrophila (AHV1; GenBank HQ331525.1) with and without the immunoadjuvant Asparagus racemosus. On various days post-vaccination (dpv), the treated fish were challenged with virulent A. hydrophila. These fish were monitored for survival, growth, specific bacterial reduction, and biochemical, haematological and immunological parameters. C. auratus attained 100% mortality within 7 d in non-vaccinated groups, whereas the vaccines helped to significantly (p ≤ 0.001) increase survival after 25 and 50 dpv. The vaccines with immunoadjuvant (ECP2, OMP2 and BF2 treatments) helped to reduce the Aeromonas load after the challenge, and serum albumin, globulin and protein levels were significantly (p , 0.01) improved in the OMP2- and BF2-treated groups. Haemoglobin and red blood cell counts were also ...

Bay Farm Island is a district of the city of Alameda, California, though it is separated from the rest of the city on Alameda Island by an estuary of San Leandro Bay. Its ZIP code is 94502. The location was originally an island in San Francisco Bay, but due to land reclamation it has become a peninsula and is now connected to the mainland of Oakland and Oakland International Airport. Marshes and other areas of the island were also reclaimed by land fill.[1] Prior to 20th century development, Bay Farm Island was farmland with asparagus being the principal crop,[2] thus it was also formerly known as Asparagus Island. In addition, the area was the site of large oyster beds which regularly supplied restaurants in nearby San Francisco.[3] Today, Bay Farm is home to the 36-hole Chuck Corica Golf Complex, office and retail complexes, and several housing developments. There is a chain of lagoons as well as several community parks including Shoreline Park, which offers stunning views of the San Francisco ...

About a third of the fatal vehicle accidents involve speeding, according to accident attorney Spear, and about 25% involve alcohol.. Spear says he was very cautious teaching his son Michael how to drive and wouldnt allow him to drive in potentially dangerous situations when he was first learning. I was very nervous, very concerned, Spear says. An important thing parents can do is teach by example. As parents we really need to set the right tone and the right example so that the kids see when Mom and Dad are out to dinner they dont drink because they are driving. We are responsible and they will they see how we conduct ourselves. Believe it or not thats really the best teacher of all, Spear says.. The real takeaway here, the real key is that when you get behind the wheel of a car to really make sure you recognize that its a deadly instrument and its something that needs to be treated with respect and with care. At all times you should recognize that in a moment your whole life could ...

Ethanol extract of flowers of Phrygilanthus acutifolius (Ruiz & Pav.) Eichler (Loranthaceae) inhibited the growth of both Gram (+) bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus saprophyticus and Enterococcus faecalis) and Gram (-) bacteria (Serratia marcescens, Acinetobacter sp. and Pseudomonas aeruginosa). This extract was bactericidal against Staphylococcus aureus and bacteriostatic against Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Morphological evidence suggests that the extract causes the swelling of the bacterial body of Staphylococcus aureus, the disintegration of the cell surface and the cell death. Bactericidal activity was optimal at pH 7.5 and was not affected by different ionic strengths. The presence of Mg2+ in the culture medium of Phrygilanthus acutifolius diminished the sensitivity of Pseudomonas aeruginosa strain against the extract. Test results would tend to corroborate the folk belief that the flowers of this plant are efficacious against respiratory infections and would justify its further

Similarly, keep in mind that there are numerous plant varieties around that happen to deter pests, and which you should consider adding to your yard. Typically, these plants act as natures version of bug repellent because insects dont like the smells of the essential oils found within them, and tend to avoid them as a result.. If you want to deter annoying pests, strategically place certain plants around your garden and on your patio(s). For example, basil can repel house flies and mosquitoes; lavender can ward off moths, fleas, mosquitoes, and flies; rosemary can deter mosquitoes and numerous insects which are harmful to vegetable plants; chives can turn off aphids, Japanese beetles, and carrot flies; parsley can be a no-no for asparagus beetles; thyme can ward off whiteflies, corn earworms, cabbage maggots, tomato hornworms, and more; and dill can repel slugs, aphids, and snails.. Aside from herbs, there are numerous ornamental flowers worth planting too. For instance, nasturtiums can ...
When we moved to Texas a year ago, I had to leave all my houseplants behind. (I had years of history with those plants. A couple were gifts from people dear to me. It was very sad). So last August or September, I set out to find new ones. I was excited, thinking that because theres so much more sun in Texas, there would be significantly better houseplant options. Not so. Apparently, they dont really do houseplants down here. At least not in the Austin area and surrounds. (I miss Molbaks so bad, I can taste it). Pretty much, all you can find are asparagus ferns, philodendron (seriously? like you even NEED sun for those) and lucky bamboo. If you look, you can find some cool bromeliads. If looking turns into a year round habit, you can see a few other plants here and there, tucked in corners of shops on occasion. I finally found a prayer plant this month. Im ecstatic. So in the end, a year ago, I settled for a jade plant from IKEA that came with bugs and totally died, an incredibly groovy ...

Lettuce (Lactuca sativa) is an annual plant of the daisy family, Asteraceae. It is most often grown as a leaf vegetable, but sometimes for its stem and seeds. Lettuce is most often used for salads, although it is also seen in other kinds of food, such as soups, sandwiches and wraps; it can also be grilled. One variety, the woju, or asparagus lettuce (celtuce), is grown for its stems, which are eaten either raw or cooked. In addition to its main use as a leafy green, it has also gathered religious and medicinal significance over centuries of human consumption. Europe and North America originally dominated the market for lettuce, but by the late 20th century the consumption of lettuce had spread throughout the world. World production of lettuce and chicory for calendar year 2013 was 24.9 million tonnes, over half of which came from China. Lettuce was first cultivated by the ancient Egyptians who turned it from a weed whose seeds were used to produce oil, into a food plant grown for its succulent leaves

If you like Chinese stir-fries made with chicken breasts, you will love this recipe for stir-fried chicken with green beans and almonds. It also contains red bell pepper and water chestnuts. The sauce contains soy sauce, sesame seed oil and just a little sugar to bring out the natural sweetness of the green beans. You could substitute snow peas or asparagus for the green beans if you prefer.
Wakame grows along the low tide line of exposed ledges in areas with heavy surf, and is one of the more difficult seaweeds to harvest, as it requires working directly in the midst of incoming waves. Care is taken to harvest only the young first-year plants, allowing the older plants to remain and continue producing spores, ensuring continued regeneration of the population and future harvests.. Wakame can be sautéed alone or with other vegetables, cooked, chilled, and added to salads, or cut in its dry form and added to soups and stews. It pairs well with leeks, scallions, asparagus, kale, spinach, potatoes, carrots, garlic, ginger, tofu, tempeh, bean soups, and a wide variety of other veggies.. Unlike Japanese wakame, which is typically parboiled before being dried, our wakame is dried immediately after harvest to retain its full nutritional value, and requires a longer cooking time to become tender.. Wakame is an excellent source of calcium, potassium, iodine, trace minerals and vitamin ...

The gelatin is high in protein, which contains nitrogen, so it can also give the germinating seeds a small, extra boost of nutrients as well. For even coverage, sow tiny seeds in a looping pattern across a flat from left to right, then from top to bottom. DEPTH OF COVER The depth of seed covering is critical. Too deep and the seeds wont germinate or the seedlings will die before making it to the soil surface; too shallow and the seeds will dry out. Our rule of thumb is this: Dont cover seeds to more than twice their largest diameter.. The flowers are wind-pollinated. ISOLATION REQUIREMENT: Raising more than one variety of ...
The following vitamins are very well-known because of their antioxidant properties. They can cope with free radicals, a factor that can predispose to the appearance of retinal detachment. It is considered that our eyes need vitamin A, C and D five times more that the rest of our organs.. - Vitamin B for retinal detachment: With antioxidant and inmune-protective properties. It can be obtained from whole grains (wheat, oats, barley, etc.) Nuts (hazelnuts, almonds, walnuts) vegetables (cabbage, cauliflower, spinach, radishes, endive, lettuce...) etc. Among all the vitamins of group B, Riboflavin (Vitamin B 2) is the most needed one. A deficiency in this vitamin can produce little adaptation to light or red and swollen eyes. Animal sources of vitamin B2 are milk and dairy products (cheese, yogurt, custard, etc.), Especially low-fat dairy products. It is mainly in the liver and other organ meats, beef and veal, pork, lamb and fish. Rich plant sources of vitamin B2 are spinach, avocado, asparagus, ...
Family Features) Macaroni and cheese, the classic American comfort food staple beloved by kids and adults alike, just got easier to prepare. No, not packaged or frozen-from your own stovetop (no baking) in under 30 minutes.. Stovetop Mac & Cheese begins with Dreamfields pasta, a premium pasta made from durum wheat semolina - just like traditional pasta, but with a healthful twist. A one cup serving of Dreamfields not only tastes great, but also has only five grams of digestible carbohydrates and five grams of fiber - which is twice the amount in traditional pasta. The fiber comes from inulin, a 100 percent natural prebiotic fiber (which may help promote healthy digestion) found in common foods like asparagus, raisins and chicory root.. To prepare this one pot, four ingredient, stovetop mac and cheese, simply cook the pasta according to package directions, drain, then add the prepared light Alfredo sauce, shredded reduced-fat cheddar cheese and nonfat milk. Stir for a couple of minutes and youll ...
The exact native range is disputed; but its most likely native to much of Europe and southwestern Asia. It has been long cultivated in Europe, the leaves, roots and seeds used especially in European cuisine. The leaves can be used in salads, or to make soup or season broths, and the roots can be eaten as a vegetable or grated for use in salads. Its flavour and smell is somewhat similar to celery. The seeds can be used as a spice, similar to fennel seeds. In the UK, an alcoholic lovage cordial is traditionally mixed with brandy in the ratio of 2:1 as a winter drink. In Romania, the leaves are the preferred seasoning for the various local broths, much more so than parsley or dill. In the Netherlands it is the only non-salt ingredient of the traditional Asparagus dish. The roots, which contain a heavy, volatile oil, are used as a mild aquaretic. Lovage root contains furanocoumarins, which can lead to photosensitivity. In Romania it is also used dried and with seeds to conserve and to add flavour ...

Scapes are the slender shoots that emerge from hard-neck garlic varieties in late spring and early summer. Theyre usually removed to allow the garlic plant to focus its energy on the growing bulb. Garlic scapes have a lovely mild flavor and a wonderful texture similar to young asparagus or pole beans. They can be grilled, added to stir fries or salads and they make a fantastic pesto.
A can-do Midwestern attitude has helped a North of Montana homeowner in creating the perfect garden for herself and her family.. A stunning multi-colored blue and green vase has been repurposed into a fountain, which adds a peaceful feel to an already quiet nook in the backyard. The water element continues in the front yard, where an old hose container has been turned into a fountain.. Carrots, lettuce, sweet peas and nasturtium grow in large, raised planter boxes in the backyard. The boxes were originally built by her college-age son for a project when he was a teenager. At that time, food was given to a local charity; now the neighbors enjoy the bounty.. Other vegetation scattered throughout the property include clivia, boxwood, melaluca, ficus, asparagus ferns, white roses, Meyer lemon and Cara cara orange trees, Pittosporum tenuifolium (known as golf ball plants) and Texas privet.. A beautiful Japanese maple was planted by the previous owners. Other items incorporated in the yard that come ...
Macrobiotic is a word derived from Greek roots and means long life. A macrobiotic diet combines simplicity in eating and avoidance of toxins in food with Buddhist Zen principles. Because of its emphasis of nutrient-rich, whole foods the macrobiotic diet has been of interest in prevention of cancer. A macrobiotic diet is a low-fat, high-fiber diet with an emphasis on whole grains and vegetables. Followers of a macrobiotic diet avoid meat, animal fats such as butter and lard, dairy products, eggs, artificial sweeteners, and chemical additives. The diet is made up of whole grains (brown rice, millet, buckwheat, wheat, corn, rye), vegetables, beans (and bean products such as tofu), sea vegetables (nori, kombu, hiziki), and smaller amounts of fruit, seeds, nuts, and white fish. Preferably these foods are organic, locally grown, and whole or very minimally processed. Vegetables such as avocados, potatoes, tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, asparagus, and beets are discouraged. Cooking food in accordance ...

Pickler Andrew Dalby responded to one of my recent tweets about not cooking asparagus in lemon juice because it discolours it. He had found that his garlic cloves turned blue when he pickled them in spiced malt vinegar. The discolouration doesnt mean that the pickles are inedible.. Now plant material turning blue in acid (vinegar is weak acetic acid) is the basis of the litmus test and is more obvious with red cabbage, which shuttles between a deep red colour and a definite blue depending on the acidity. So, I assumed that was perhaps what was happening with the garlic, but couldnt think what would be colourless in unpickled garlic that might go blue-green in acid.. A quick Google turned up this page in which they report that the most common pigment, anthocyanins, are colourless in raw garlic, can be red at high pH, but are blue-green at low pH. So, that might be it.. But, scientists have also homed in on amino acids as possible villains for giving garlic the pickled blues. J Cho of the ...
Vitamin E is a good thing to have in your body because it can dissolve fat and can act a little like an antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize harmful molecules called free radicals in our bodies that accumulate from things like exposure to toxins and a bad diet. Free radicals are unstable molecules because theyre missing an electron, so they find poor unsuspecting molecules and steal one from them. In turn the robbed molecule becomes unstable and it tries to steal an electron too, and this creates a chain reaction. Antioxidants stop this chain reaction from happening by nicely lending an electron to the free radicals.. We get Vitamin E inside of ourselves by eating foods that have a lot of them. Things like eggs, milk, avocado, asparagus, nuts and seeds are examples of some foods that are rich in Vitamin E. These are fairly common foods, so its not so difficult to get Vitamin E in the U.S. However, if we dont get the Vitamin E we need it leads to Vitamin E deficiency, which can have a lot of ...
