Re: B2B - Back to Basics "Why are these pink?!" Tuesday

Ok, I finally made a deer corn heating bag. It's like a rice sock, but evidence I've researched and long forgotten suggested that deer corn is a better option. So I bought a giant bag of deer corn (because they don't sell small bags and it's only $6) at the start of deer season, whenever that was, and it's been sitting in my garage for months. I finally opened it today and made a quickie one, probably the equivalent of 4 cups in a freezer gallon ziploc, covered it with some sweatshirt scraps. Heated it in my 1200 watt microwave for two minutes and put it on my sore baby-carrying back. It was a lot hotter than I expected, and it stayed HOT for 25 minutes. It still had residual heat in it an hour later. I'm totally sold on this, it's a great idea. Going to try to bag up a bunch tomorrow or next day, make the covers later, before the bugs figure out I've got a giant bag of open food in the garage.
