This week has been pretty crazy here, some things have gotten pushed aside. So far...
I did it:
Kombucha mother success- now on my brewing (methods from Food Renegade)
I tried a fruit juice, and a fresh citrus blend (orange and lime) which was delicious. Next, onto my favorite "gingerade" flavor- just picked up some ginger juice and can't wait to set it up!
Sprouted Cookies - sorry for the delay on this- it took me a while to perfect the recipe but I have it worked out well to go with my variations now. Finally got my grain mill- makes it so easy!
"power bars"- these are delicious! from Lindsay at Passionate Homemaking, thanks to Katie at Kitchen Stewardship. I used peanut butter, prunes, and all sunflower seeds (I had no crispy nuts left!) and half butter, half coconut oil. I was worried, but they set up perfectly in the fridge. Big Boy actually said chocolate when he ate them- and I do think they have a certain rich chocolate-like flavor this way. Using the prunes also allowed me to reduce the sweetener by half- always a good thing!
Second try with sourdough- it's looking good and hopefully in a few days I'll have some bread to tell you all about!
Soaked Oatmeal Cookies- this recipe from Cheeseslave is great! I added in some homemade chocolate chips- yummy!
real pickles- I did brussel sprouts (DH loves 'em) and they turned out quite well. Also on my second round of sauerkraut this week.
I didn't do it (yet)
new candy recipes- a fudge, a toffee, and some chocolate barks.
