This one's a little strange, and I didn't know quite where to post it.... My roommate and I have a big container of generic/off-brand soy oil that we are both convinced was made with GM/Bt soy and we were wondering about a good way to get rid of it in the least wasteful and safest manner possible.
The only thing I could think of off the top of my head (other than throwing it into the curbside trash) was to cut it with kerosene and use it for tiki torches in the summer. I figured that this would be too smoky, though. (I'm also reasonably sure Seattle has an ordinance against tiki torches).
I've just read _Genetic Roulette_ by Jeffrey M. Smith and I am erring on the side of paranoia about GM/Bt foods (no more Doritos for me, no sir!).
We only have a small amount--about a half gallon, and we'll probably use it to start BBQ fires in the summer. But I was curious about what other folks would come up with. I like the biodiesel idea, and if I had a drumfull of the stuff, I'd definitely post it for that purpose here or on Craigslist.
Like I said above, I'd been reading about GMOs recently, and I'm hesitant to even look in the cabinet where it's stored, lest the very sight of it turns my liver into a scale model of Carlsbad caverns.
More bad news on GMOs: Monsanto is now producing GM sugar beet seed. 2008 was the first year in widespread production. Most commercial crops like GM corn and GM soy (etc) are in the 75%+ range of all that crop produced in the U.S.
So, if GM bothers you (like it does most smart people), you might want to buy sugar (white or brown) that is cane sugar, not beet sugar. The ingredient info should tell you the source.
