Homemade Toothpaste

I’ve been making my own toothpaste since May when I learned the recipe from the Compact group. Only hard-to-find ingredient is glycerin. Tim, who buys glycerin to stretch his pricey lube, thinks that it’s because glycerin is an ingredient of bombs. Well you can still get it at Whole Foods in the toothpaste section. Here’s the recipe:
6 teaspoons baking soda
1/3 teaspoon salt
4 teaspoons glycerin
15 drops peppermint or wintergreen extract

Mix together into a paste and store in a container you can get a toothbrush into. It’s very fresh tasting, though a little salty. I gave three friends samples and they all complained about the salty taste, but I like it because it makes my teeth feel like they’ve just been polished. My dental hygienist said she would prefer I use something with flouride in it, but that my teeth were so well cleaned she wouldn’t want to change anything.

Here’s an article on the benefits of these ingredients as a toothpaste.

Recipe is from this book.

3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 large onion, fingely chopped
1 tsp ginger-garlic paste
3 ripe red tomatoes, chopped
1 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp chili powder
1 large green bell pepper, diced
About 2 cups (10 oz) large cooked shrimp.

Heat the oil in a heavy wok or pan. Sweat the onion until soft.

Add the ginger-garlic paste and stir.

Add the tomatoes and spices, cook until tomates begin to get soft. Add a little water if needed to stop from sticking.

Add the pepper and the shrimp, season with salt and and about 2/3 cup hot water to make a thick sauce. Cook until done, adding more water if necessary.

Serve hot.

See it cooking here.

Changes I made:

I only used about a tbs spoon of olive oil. I also used a can of diced tomatoes (undrained) and so I didn’t add any water when adding the tomatoes. I also used uncooked shrimp. 2/3 cup of water was more then enough and I think would be too much if using cooked shrimp. Served it with spanish rice from from a can, which wasn’t that great.

The "tomato curry" is excellent by itself, I would use it for other things.
