Microwave Monday: The BEST 'NIP EVER!

I've been cruisin' 'round the internet lookin' at bloggies featurin' 'NIP!

My mom does our 'nip in the microwave 'cuz dryin' it upside down from the ceiling takes too long (an' she gets tired of movin' it all over the place 'cuz Charmee keeps tryin' to "rescue" the dryin' 'nip).

Here's what she does ...

1. She harvests stalks of fresh 'nip leaves from our plants growin' outside in the backyard.

2. She carefully washes the 'nip in the sink while fending off Charmee's attacks an' Sparky Fuzzypants' head-butts.

3. Once washed an' dried off, Mom picks the leaves from the stalks an' places them in a single layer on a paper towel.

4. The paper towel is placed in the microwave an' nuked on "high" for 65 seconds.

5. The dried 'nip is removed from the microwave an' crumbled into 'nip flakes.

6. The dried 'nip flakes can then be spread on scratching posts, put into socks or toys for playin', or eaten!

YUMM-O!

Mmmmm! Gourmet 'nip!

Cheysuli said...

Growing your own must be the best! I think we have a small patch outside!

Samantha & Tigger said...

That is some great instructions on Nip! Thanks. I'm gonna get Mom to go to the flea market and buy us some partially grown that we can plant. Mom's not to good on growing from scratch.
Hi 5 paw,

heheh I'd probably try to "rescue" the drying nip too. Who can blame Charmee? Your ma is smart to come up with a good way to dry it! Wish we could grow it. Oliver and Fatty would probably eat it all before it could be harvested tho. Oh well. At least we have a good nip source.
Purrrrrs,

Millie said...

Oh, oh, oh! I'm gonna make Mom do that to some of MY 'nip, and then I will tell you all how it turns out!

Henry Helton said...

Thank you so much for the nip directions. I will make sure My Lady reads this and gets to growin' and dryin'.

Lux said...

Your mom must really love you all! That's awfully nice of her to do ...

DaisyMae Maus said...

Mom DOES love us furry much to take some of her free time to grow, process, an' nuke our 'nip for us. We go though lots an' lots of 'nip at our house. Anycat can teleport over to sample our gourmet 'nip!

this is suuuuuuuch a great idea. I have 2 plants and mommy can't keep those drying stalks safe without closing it behind a door and that is a pain....
how is your grandad? We've been sending him good vibes. We hope they worked.

PS we had company this weekend, and they all love my "Mini Me!" I had my picture taken a lot with it.

Jake and Bathsheba said...

Oh, I'd love to come visit with you DaisyMae. Mom gave up on growing nip years ago-before I was born. Somehow it would attract other cats from the neighborhood who would roll in it and destroy it. Maybe I could convince her to try again.

Smooches,
~Jake

Christine and FAZ said...

Wow, I didn't know your mum was a 'dealer'. FAZ

Eric and Flynn said...

Mmmmm that sounds reely yummy. We're going to haf to give mum a serious talking too. She needs to start growing nip NOW!!!
We're just on our way teleporting ofurr to try yours while we wait furr mum to grow ours.

Monty Q. Kat said...

I'm feelin' woozy already!

Tiger Lily said...

Hi DMM! Maybe I'd like nip if Mom grew and dried it from fresh. I'll have to get her to try it when she gets home from New Yuck.
