    You're referring to Jingle's post about persimmons, and freezing persimmon pulp, right?

    Otherwise, I think there would be fuzzy little brown and black bristles in the cookies (or white bristles if you live near Kay in Vancouver). But, then again I don't know what Earthwalker in Australia does with her "little blighters." ~~

    I sure hope she was not referring to the little Wolly Bear Catapillers i will not eat a cookie again without looking for little bristles!

    We used to see them in the fall in Michigan. One year when my youngest DS was little, he came to me with one on his arm and wanted me to take care of it. I told him it was ok because it was a caterpillar and it wouldn't hurt him. Well, I was so wrong because as soon as I told him that, it bit him. Needless to say that shook my DS faith in my judgment. I had never heard of such a thing happening. Now that my DH and I live in Florida, we never see the wooly creatures.

    I just Googled "Can caterpillars bite" and found out that it is actually a sting from from a a spine. I sure wish I had known that at the time. The faith your little ones have in you is precious. He is 45 years old now so I think all is forgiven. lol

    Also reporting in from WV. I saw my first wooly worm today. It was mostly black with a small brown ring in the middle. We really need a cold winter this year to kill off some of the bugs. And I love snow!
