Humm ... spa water ...

Well - there was the time when Lamar and me and 5 ladies were in a hot tub at the end of a party ... temp should have been sufficient to "pasteurize" any bugs ... but not sure I would want to drink the water ...

Michael in FtW: I guess this story makes up for having two threads on Spa Water!

I'll do this afterwards.

But, why did you name this water as 'Spa Water'?
I was looking on a spa recipe site when i found this recipe and it was called spa water there.

my friend David had a hot tub we all admired and used frequently. Pretty ugly scum on the surface of the water the next day, though.

I'm assuming spa water is like the water you could get at a fountain when I lived in Wiesbaden. In other words, mineral water. I really cannot imagine doing anything besides drinking it; I think that the benefits would for the most part be lost if you cooked with it. It also depends upon the spa (i.e., spring) you get it from. Many mineral waters are very sulfurous, and each has its own distinct quantities of minerals. Some are sparkling, some not. When we were in Europe last (about 10 years ago), we learned to ask "mit gas" if we wanted sparkling.
