Today I’m doing a review and a Giveaway of the Boss Pickler from Primal Kitchen. Rochelle sent me a Boss Pickler 1.5Ljar and a Crock Rock weight to review. I have already successfully fermented with it 3 times and just last week I made a Basic Kimchi. Now, it’s the first container I grab when making a new ferment, and I love its classic lines and ease of use and cleaning!
There is a short story behind our love of kimchi. Last year, our youngest son was awarded a 16-day trip to South Korea for working his way to the top national level in Civil Air Patrol, an auxiliary branch of the US Air Force. He went with a long-standing sinus infection, but he came back almost totally well and full of all the stories of eating and loving the different kimchees he was graciously served while there twice a day. The amount served with each meal was rather small (~2 TBSP), but now we can achieve the same wellness here at home by duplicating those regular small amounts of kimchi.
We (my son and I) just made another basic kimchi (ˈkim-chē), and it turned out smashing!
To those who struggle with infertility or must work outside of the home, I realize this is a sensitive topic. This is in no way meant to heap more guilt or pain upon you, friend. During these times, we must trust that the Lord has a plan and knows exactly what He’s doing. My heart goes out to you, dear one, and I’m specifically praying for you right now.
Did you know you could make a beautiful “Kool-Aid’ alternative with hibiscus flowers that tastes like ‘Kool-Aid’, too? With the downside of dyes and aspartame in Kool-Aid, many people are going to safer more natural drinks.
I just saw hibiscus flowers are on sale at the Bulk Herb Store for the last few days of July at a really good price, and thought I would share this Cool Recipe as we reach the height of summer. This is a really great price given that you can also dye cloth and yarn with red hibiscus flowers. Their sale ends July 31st.
What’s the very best way to preserve fresh herbs? It’s taken me a long while to find out! Growing herbs such as parsley, basil, chives, tarragon, cilantro, garlic, and dill in my garden since before we were married, but I’ve had to fail many times in order to learn how to preserve those marvelous flavors before the chills and bluster of winter could damage their tender leaves.
Freezing makes them un-recognizable with no texture; drying takes away much of their flavor, and putting them into ice cubes with water? What an unappetizing mess!
Hello there! I’m Jacqueline’s daughter. Mother and I have a wardrobe-extender to shout-out about today that may or may not be on your radar. We’ve been eyeing 2 of Deborah & Co.’s halftees (aka a cami or shell) and are thrilled with the opportunity to review both!
We had so much fun trying on different outfits with our new halftees and posing with Mother’s little Nikon Coolpix S6400 point-and-shoot camera.
Since aspartame first hit the U.S. market in the mid-70s, doctors contended that tumors were skyrocketing in the general population. There is also the mysterious rise in diseases such as fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue. Indeed, as an RN in the operating suites during the 70s/80s, it was certainly a topic of interest as we conversed amongst ourselves. While I was in the heart rooms, my best friend went into neurosurgery, and we discussed the rapid rise in the numbers of brain lesions. The experience made such an impact on me that as a new mother I shied away from foods containing this additive.
For 40 years, I have been a wife to my husband and a teacher of our children in the home. Now a new season has come, and with the blessing of my husband, I write this blog as an encouragement to myself and others. (Titus 2: 3-5) How important is this role of speaking into the lives of younger women! The habits of the home in one generation become the morals of society in the next. As William Ross Wallace said: “The hand that rocks the cradle, rules the world.”
