Just a quick note this Saturday morning to share news of my favorite cheese press, the Ultimate Cheese Press from Homesteader Supply. It’s design is improved, it’s now being made from hardwood maple, and it’s being seasoned with organic coconut oil! The bit about seasoning is the best part. Jerri from Homesteader Supply heard my request to give us a press that’s got an oil we love to use — and she listened. [by Wardee Harmon]
Healthy gluten-free sourdough? Yes, it’s totally possible… and it’s delicious! Sharon Kane, the expert gluten-free baker behind Gluten-Free Sourdough Company, has launched a product line of gluten-free sourdough bread mixes and starters. She sent me a few mixes to try, and my family absolutely loves them. I made a video to show you how how easy and wonderful they are! [by Wardee Harmon]
I had a treat recently — Jerri and Nance from HomesteaderSupply.com sent me a cheesepress as a gift. Not just any press, but The Ultimate Cheese Press. I like this cheesepress so much, I made a video to show you how to use it. In the video, you’ll see it’s a breeze to make cheese, plus I share why I like it so much. Please do watch the video, and you’ll see how easy it is to make cheese. [by Wardee Harmon]
Today, I’m a guest on Beyond The Peel TV, hosted by Joshua and France of the Beyond The Peel blog. Joshua and I talk about my family, my classes, how easy it is to get started with traditional foods, and lots more. Joshua is a great host. No wonder he’s doing an internet TV show — he’s a natural! In this post, I also share the recipe for simple, no-pound sauerkraut which I mentioned in the show.
Welcome back to our Video Q&A series! Today’s question comes from Tami: “I’ve seen your sourdough starter videos and have my own starter sitting on the counter now (started 8 days ago). It doesn’t take 12 hours to double, more like 3 to 5. Should I still wait the full 12 hours before feeding it again, even though it “falls” by that point? And I know you said “several weeks” for it to be ready. It smells good and sour now, will two weeks be enough? Thank you, and thanks for all the free resources! I really appreciate them!” — Tami
