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 CheesePress, which is currently on sale for 10% off. I like this cheesepress so much, I made a video about it. In the video, you’ll see how easy it is to use, 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.
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
My friend Jami loves nachos. She’s eaten them all her life, especially the take-out kind. As a stay-at-home mom eating real foods, she figured she had to find a way to keep eating them — at home and healthy. So she did. We made them together this week — and you get to see it on video. Plus, print instructions included in this post.
You probably remember that in February of 2010, we launched the first Fundamentals eCourse. I knew that it was good and foundational. And important. But when it was well underway, I also knew that I had much more to share and teach about fundamental traditional cooking skills. And now, it is time to revisit the fundamentals of traditional cooking — with Fundamentals II. Details and a video are inside this post.
