jameswaters Mini caraway salt Rye rolls, baked fresh this morning for my Bio 103 students. Because, we made it to Friday! #goodshabbos 5d
  •   thoemms Jealous of your students right now! 5d
  •   jameswaters @thoemms I just wish there was a way to serve them warm. Maybe I can use a hotplate... 5d
  •   dlugolenski Or a hot steam box? Like they use to relax insect specimens? Are these related to lecture, or just for deliciousness? 5d
  •   jameswaters @dlugolenski I think King Arthur Flour makes a box for proofing dough that would work like a big steam box. These were just for fun. Unless you can tie them into a transcription/translation lecture somehow! 5d
  •   mandawaters Sterno? Torch? 5d
  •   dlugolenski There must be some way to tie transcription/translation to the generation of the specific enzymes (monoterpene synthase, etc) that produce the corvone, which gives caraway its odor and flavor ;) 5d
  •   cizauskas When I was a kid I thought caraway seeds were bugs and I would spend most of my lunch time picking them out of my sandwich bread before I could eat. 5d
  •   jameswaters @cizauskas as a kid I hated them too! But just a few years ago decided to give them a try and loved 'em! Good on bread and cheese too. Still kinda buggy looking though, I agree. 5d

jameswaters Lasius mating flight tonight in Rhode Island. One of my students saw it while we were hunting for Aphaenogaster colonies. Earlier in the day we noticed that the Aphaenogaster actually had winged females in their nest, seemed pretty late in the year for them to still be around. Then we saw all this commotion a little farther down the trail! And get this @clintpenick, right next to all this citronella insanity, a colony of Aphaenogaster was evacuating, transporting brood and fleeing the scene. Wonder what was going on there! 4w
