Every year at this time my kitchen and freezer overflow with rhubarb-laden goodies: classic rhubarb crisp, rhubarb cookies, rhubarb bread, rhubarb jam, rhubarb marshmallows… My favorite use for rhubarb isn’t a sweet dessert, though — it’s this scrumptious rhubarb salsa. [by Kresha Faber]
Learn to make your own homemade flavored cream cheese, and you’ll never buy another tub again. Sure, the grocery store flavors taste good — but these taste fabulous (and are more healthy). Plus, there’s no limit to what flavors you can try! In this video excerpt from the Cultured Dairy & Basic Cheese eCourse, I show you how to make Onion-Chives or Cinnamon-Walnut cream cheese.
In today’s free video and recipe, I show you a traditional Middle Eastern method of preserving yogurt cheese that requires no refrigeration. My grandmother and namesake, Tata Wardee, who has passed away, always had jars full of yogurt cheese balls available to add to our plates at breakfast, lunch and dinner!
Want to make your guacamole just that much better for you? Lacto-ferment it! This natural fermentation process allows beneficial organisms to proliferate, and causes an explosion of vitamins and enzymes. The benefits to you? Better digestion and support for your immune system. Check out the recipe below, also demonstrated above in this week’s free video.
The crunchiest, best tortilla chips ever, an herb dip with tangy flavor (not to mention a secret healthy ingredient) and tasty, chunky black bean spread. What do they all have in common? Why, they’re some of my favorite appetizers — and I’m pleased to share them in the appetizer course of the real food progressive dinner, Whole Foods for the Holidays!
As promised, here’s the jerky recipe I’m (loosely) following. I looked around for ground meat jerky recipes after I read that commercial jerky is often made with ground meat. We knew that jerky was pretty soft, and we thought it would work better for the people in my family that have teeth issues… sensitive teeth or braces. (I’m sorry, Dr. Price, but we learned about you too late.) [by Wardee Harmon]
I’d like to share how simple and fun lacto-fermentation of vegetables can be. I’ve only done a bit of it, but enough to see that lacto-fermented vegetables taste fabulous and are very easy to make. What I love the most about it is that I don’t have to heat anything (though some recipes call for a bit of cooking) and that measuring is not that precise. This is the kind of anti-cooking I like!
