Rhubarb-Walnut Muffins with Rhubarb Jam

What to do with rhubarb? Abundant and beautiful, many (including me) pass up using it year to year because we don’t know what to do with it. Here are two GAPS-friendly, honey-sweetened, nourishing recipes to help you use it up — a tart rhubarb jam and moist, rhubarb-walnut muffins.

Food Freedom Under Attack in Minnesota

alvin-farm

As I type this, food freedom supporters are gathering in Minnesota at the trial of farmer Alvin Schlangen, co-owner and manager of Freedom Farms Co-op. Watch the short video to hear his story. “Alvin Schlangen, a peaceful Minnesota farmer and founder of Freedom Farms Co-op, connects people with the foods of their choice from local producers. Over the past two years, the Minnesota Department of Agriculture has illegally raided Alvin’s van, warehouse, and farm. The state has now brought 21 charges against Alvin related to food distribution; all are misdemeanor counts. Four of the misdemeanors are in trial [this week]. If convicted, Alvin faces up to a year in jail and hefty fines… just for helping to connect consumers to the producers and foods of their choice.” –Raw Milk Food Freedom Riders
