The Tale of Carl, a Sourdough Starter


Hey, everyone! Please meet Joy, who blogs at A Well-Armed Laura Ingalls Wilder. For this week’s Sourdough eCourse lesson, Katie, Erin, and I each answered 10 questions about how sourdough fits into our lives. Then we asked the eCourse members to share their answers, too. Many have, much to my delight! Joy’s answers were particularly entertaining. I know you’ll enjoy them as much as we all did on the eCourse forums. Thanks, Joy!

Iced Teeccino


Iced teeccinos… something we’ve been having alot lately. I can’t figure out if the cold teeccino is the perfect vehicle for the raw milk or the other way around. We love them both, and they’re really great together. Teeccino is a coffee alternative made from roasted grains, roots, nuts and seeds. My favorite flavors are hazelnut and chocolate mint. There are two ways to make an iced teeccino — the foamy way (pictured) and the not-so-foamy way. Take your pick; they’re both delicious.

Apple Cider Vinegar and Garlic for Goats


Apple cider vinegar (raw) and garlic: good for goats, too! Apple cider vinegar is a source of vitamins, minerals and enzymes, in particular phosphorus (for goats). It helps strengthen the immune system, improves digestion, and balances internal pH. When added to water, it helps keep the water fresh. Garlic, we all know, has amazing anti-fungal and anti-biotic properties. Want to share those benefits with your animals? Here’s how you can, with every drink.
