Give Away: Lisa’s Counter Culture E-Book ~$37

Posted by on Sep 29, 2012 in Lacto-Fermentation, Nutrition, Traditional Foods | 13 comments

 This give away is closed.  Go here to see the winner and the bonus.  I have the great pleasure of giving away one copy of Lisa’s Counter Culture E-Book.   This book is a $37 value. Before I get to the give away I wanted to talk about the book.  I have had an opportunity to read over this book and I am so glad I did!  I love to read new cook books like novels and this one does not disappoint.  The value in this book is at least as much from the extra information that she includes as it is in the recipes it contains. Lisa takes the time to explain so much about each recipe that she shares.  Not just how to make it but what nutrients you can get from the food or how the stages of...

GAPS Pumpkin Spice Coffee Creamer (dairy free)

Posted by on Sep 26, 2012 in GAPS, Recipe | 20 comments

I remember those days of blithely consuming flavored creamers in my morning coffee and thinking that they were simply one of the best things in life. I used to keep my fridge stocked with one or two flavors at all times. Going to a coffee house and ordering a flavored latte was one of life’s simple pleasures. I just loved them so much.  Well then I learned about trans fats and sugar and developed a corn allergy so those are now out of my life forever.  *sad face* Or so I thought.   Yesterday I made up a dairy free recipe for pumpkin spice creamer that was pretty tasty!  Since we are on GAPS we aren’t supposed to have unfermented dairy and well yogurt just isn’t the same in your coffee.  So many dairy free creamer recipes use coconut...

Fermentation Friday, September 21

Posted by on Sep 21, 2012 in Lacto-Fermentation | 16 comments

Watermelon Juice, Salsa and Water Kefir all fermenting in Pickl-it Jars. When it comes to fermenting, people who are contemplating the Pickl-it jars keep asking me one questing.  “What do I need to buy to get started?”  I have been giving that some thought. It will of course depend on how many people you are planning to be making ferments for and how much each person will eat.  It also depends on what you are planning to ferment. Some fermented foods take a long time and need a dedicated Pickl-it jar that whole time. Other foods are ready quickly and can be eaten up quickly and free up the jar again for more food.  One third issue to keep in mind is that as a food is eaten it will need to be moved into a smaller jar once the jar...
