What do an off-grid documentary film project and heirloom gardening have in common? They're the strong interests of husband, father, and entrepreneur Jason Matyas.
In this episode of Know Your Food with Wardee, you'll meet Jason and we'll visit about his off-grid film project, his family business sharing heirloom seeds, his love of gardening, and much more.
Get to know Jason and his family through the links and information below, and of course through this podcast. Plus… the tip of the week!

Tip of the Week: Homemade Cream Cheese
Found a recipe calling for cream cheese but you don't have any? Drip yogurt or kefir (or clabber) through two layers of 90-count cheesecloth for an easy (albeit slightly more sour) soft cheese. It's delicious and easy!
In the podcast, I promised I would include the photo above. It shows the stick propped on top of the two cupboards on either side of the sink. On that, I loop paracord and from that I hang a bag of curds. You can also just let your bag sit in a colander suspended over a pot. Hanging is faster (and therefore your soft cheese less sour).
The cheesecloth is stained pink from the wash, I guess. (I didn't quite remember how — this is an old picture!)
