Practical Household Uses Of Salt


Category: Diy
Description: This title offers home cures, recipes, everyday hints and tips. It is a celebration of one of nature's most powerful ingredients and how to use it for health and in cooking. It includes a brief history of salt, its industrial uses and importance in customs, religions and rituals. It is a guide to the medicinal benefits of this essential mineral, such as taking salt baths, gargling salt and swimming in salt water. How to cook with salt while maintaining a well-balanced diet, with recipes for meat and fish, salt crusts, sauces, seasonings and bread, and preserving fruit and vegetables. We cannot do without salt - every living creature needs the essential sodium in salt. Historically, salt has been the cause of wars, uprising and revolutions. It has been used as money, and has been a powerful force in the economic rise and fall of civilizations. This book explores the history and uses of salt, proving that it is much more than just a white granular substance you sprinkle from a salt cellar on to your food. In Roman times, it was so highly valued that soldiers were paid in salt - which is where we get the word 'salary' from. Salt also has many important industrial uses, such as producing plastics, bleaching cotton and linen, disinfecting water, manufacturing glass, curing leather and making paper. Last but not least, salt is invaluable in cooking - when used in moderation - and the book contains a range of recipes for smoked and cured meat, cheeses, breads, preserved fruit and vegetables, and tasty sauces and seasonings. There is a guide to the salt content of processed foods, and an explanation of the problems that can be caused by eating too much salt.

My Little Epiphanies

Description: Aisha Chaudhary was born with S. C. I. D (severe combined immune deficiency) and underwent a bone marrow transplant when she was 6 months old. She lives in New Delhi, where she was born. 2014 was a brutal year for Aisha as her disease progressed and her lungs started giving up on her. The last few months of the year felt like a roller coaster ride, one that seemed to be mostly going down. Spending almost all her time lying in bed, Aisha wrote down her thoughts to get some relief, to get them out of her head. Aisha's life is not anything like the average life of an urban teenager, but she has experienced a lifetime of emotions; life and death, fear and anger, love and hate, the depths of utter sorrow and the happiest one can be. In My Little Epiphanies she takes a hard look at her own feelings and what it was that gave her a sense of hope and control. This book gave her life purpose and meaning, something to hold on to. Sometimes Aisha's little epiphanies have morphed into doodles that capture what was going on in her mind as her destiny played itself out. Through the book she wants the world to understand her unusual life and she hopes that it will inspire others, going through similar hardships, to find peace.

Description: The inside story of London's housing crisis, by the award-winning author of Ground Control London is facing the worst housing crisis in modern times, with knock-on effects for the rest of the UK. Despite the desperate shortage of housing, tens, perhaps hundreds of thousands of affordable homes are being pulled down, replaced by luxury apartments aimed at foreign investors. In this ideological war, housing is no longer considered a public good. Instead, only market solutions are considered - and these respond to the needs of global capital, rather than the needs of ordinary people. In politically uncertain times, the housing crisis has become a key driver creating and fuelling the inequalities of a divided nation. Anna Minton cuts through the complexities, jargon and spin to give a clear-sighted account of how we got into this mess and how we can get out of it.
