Raw Ice Cream

Ice cream is best when homemade, since you can use a great deal less sweetener and omit all the additives contained in commercially made ice cream. High quality homemade ice cream is made using raw organic cream, yolks from pastured eggs, and unrefined sugar. Get creative by adding your favorite berries or chocolate to the basic recipe.

Ingredients

  • 3 pastured egg yolks
  • ½ c Grade B maple syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 Tbsp. arrowroot
  • 3 cups raw organic heavy cream

Whisk together all ingredients and add them to your prepared ice cream maker. Turn on ice cream maker and the best ice cream of your life will be ready in about 20 minutes! Eat right away or freeze in shallow plastic container.

Makes 1 quart.

Mayonnaise

Posted March 9, 2016 in:

Making Homemade Mayonnaise is easier than you think! (Makes 1 ½ cups)

  • 1 whole egg, at room temperature
  • 1 egg yolk, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon-type mustard
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon whey, optional
  • ¾ – 1 cup extra virgin olive oil or expeller-expressed sunflower oil or a combination Generous pinch sea salt

Homemade mayonnaise imparts valuable enzymes, particularly lipase, to sandwiches, tuna salad, chicken salads and many other dishes and is very easy to make in a food processor. The addition of whey will help your mayonnaise last longer, adds enzymes and increases nutrient content. Use sunflower oil if you find that olive oil gives too strong a taste. Homemade mayonnaise will be slightly more liquid than store-bought versions.

In your food processor, place egg, egg yolk, mustard, salt and lemon juice and optional whey. Process until well blended, about 30 seconds. Using the attachment that allows you to add liquids drop by drop, add olive oil and/or sunflower oil with the motor running. Taste and check seasoning. You may want to add more salt and lemon juice. If you have added whey, let the mayonnaise sit at room temperature, well covered, for 7 hours before refrigerating. With whey added, mayonnaise will keep several months and will become firmer with time. Without whey, mayonnaise will keep for about 2 weeks.

Sara’s Simple Sauerkraut

Sara's Simple Sauerkraut

Sara's Simple Sauerkraut

Ingredients

  • 1 Large Organic Cabbage, cored and thinly sliced
  • 2 Organic Carrots, grated
  • 1 Organic Onion, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1 tsp. fresh oregano
  • ½ tsp. Cumin
  • ½ tsp. Chili flakes
  • 1 ½ Tbsp. sea salt

Directions

  1. Place cabbage in a bowl, add sea salt. Allow to sit for 5 to 6 hours. The salt will
    draw liquid out of the cabbage.
  2. Add remaining ingredients, massage & squeeze to make more liquid.
  3. Pack mixture into ½ gallon wide-mouth ball jars. A kraut pounder or wooden stick
    can help pack in all into jar tightly.
  4. Be sure to leave about 2 inches of space at the top of jar, as it will expand. Cover tightly with ball jar lid and ring. (Pressure will build in jar and will make a “pop” when opened for the first time.)
  5. Allow to sit for 5 to 7 days at room temperature.
  6. Open and enjoy as a condiment with each meal. Store either on counter or in refrigerator (fridge will slow down fermentation and increase life, but it isn’t necessary). Flavors will likely change over time, it’s a living thing!
