Malted seeds are largely known from malt beer, whisky, and vinegar making. In this “malting” process, barley seeds are washed with water and sprouted before being fermented. The sprouted seed makes usable simple sugars for yeasts to convert into alcohol. Malted seed ferments come from the kitchens of ancient grain savers and gardeners already proficient at sprouting seedlings. Barley first grew wild near and was domesticated in Syria.
The chokecherry is named for its bitter fruit juice, which is astringent and seedy enough to be a choking hazard when drank fresh. These shrubs grow around the Peace River region, blooming white and ripening from red to dark purple. Full of tannins and antioxidants, these berries are a farmer’s medicinal and nutritional secret weapon. Chokecherry wood and bark is used in many traditional medicines and foods.
The first snowy day of winter reminds me to make a good plan for cooking. Cooking and eating is a great psychological motivator during a cold, house-bound season. Planing your winter cooking with a schedule can give you the time to dream up holiday meals, and winter’s first snowy evening is the perfect time to start dreaming and planning for your festivities this season.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
