Pickled Radish Pods

Pickled Radish Pods | Radishes are a favorite crop in our homestead garden. They are easy to grow and we enjoy the many heirloom varieties available. Occasionally I plant more than we can eat or harvest to preserve for later, so I allow them to go to seed. The radishes produce beautiful little flowers and seed pods perfect for a garden snack! | GNOWFGLINS.com

The Big Flat Reuben: A Real Food Big Flat Sandwich

The Big Flat Real Food Reuben Sandwich | Who knew that making a big honkin' loaf-sized sandwich and flattening it under cement blocks, rocks, or gym weights could be so fun (or so delicious)?

How to Create a Scoby Hotel

How to Create a Scoby Hotel | Kombucha is a social beverage in more ways than one! Every batch produces new growth on your scoby, and this can be peeled off and shared with a friend, too.

I recently found myself in such a predicament -- completely overrun -- and then I discovered the scoby hotel. | GNOWFGLINS.com

Homemade Sourdough Cold Cereal

Homemade Sourdough Cold Cereal | It's been fun to tackle the cereal challenge over the years, discovering everyone's preferences and searching for the perfect crunchy texture. This may sound silly, but we like a cereal that doesn't immediately go soggy once submerged in milk. For a long time, I achieved all of this with my oven, but my husband blessed me with an Excalibur dehydrator this last Christmas, which has greatly improved the texture of our cereal! | GNOWFGLINS.com

Delicious! | GNOWFGLINS.com
