No, I didn't claim one. I'm a wimp like that sometimes. It would have made a better story though.
In other news, apparently water chestnut flour is available at Asian grocers and is mostly used for thickening or as a crispy coating. No leads as yet on banana flour. Google searches mostly turn up instructions for making it and the fact that it is highly nutritious. I suppose I could always go ask the Hare Krishnas.
