It is prune and plum season in Oregon — one of my favorite times of year! In today’s video, I show you how easy it is to freeze plums/prunes for use in the winter. In the off-season, I use frozen plums to make plum sauce or we toss the plums in smoothies. The great thing about using frozen fruit for smoothies is it acts like ice, too!

Our nights are refreshingly cool, yet the garden is still producing. This is perfect weather for warming harvest soups. At least I think so! Make use of your crockpot to cook beef until tender, then combine with flavorful and colorful summer vegetables. I have been serving grain-free almond bread on the side.
Before coming up with this recipe, I tried a recipe I found online that was so dry we all got hiccups! Then I noticed the recipe called for no fat whatsoever. I modified the recipe, and here is the final result — a nutty and moist bread that I can be served like cornbread. [by Wardee Harmon]

Do you know why soy is pretty much universally used in chicken feed? It is an inexpensive source of protein and it helps chickens grow faster. But it isn’t very good for us. Perhaps you, like many others, are looking for soy-free chicken food. If you have a family milk cow or friends with abundant milk, I’ve got an idea for you. This week’s free video explains it to you, or you can read the short transcript included in this post. [by Wardee Harmon]
