NEWS FROM THE KITCHEN
NEW SHIPPING MODULE!
We have decided to make the month of August a theme
month for why HOMEMADE MATTERS. Many people ask us
why they should make their own bread, or juice their own juice
or even just make their own meals. Our current lifestyles allow
us just to go to the Supermarket and purchase alreadymade baked goods or packaged juices or even complete meals
either frozen or preserved in some way that you just heat it
and eat it. No wonder there are thousands of companies that
produce this type of food that make millions of dollars on the
convenience of it all. But is it healthy for us to continue to consume this type of food, day in and day out without suffering
We are pleased to announce that we have upgraded our
online shipping module so that it will accurate figure out
the shipping to your particular postal or zip code. This has
been a constant headache over the years when we could
only give a rough estimate how much it would be for us to
ship to your area but now for example, if you add things to
a larger package like a Bosch Universal Plus it will not add
any extra shipping if we can fit it into a box. Hooray!!!
With fast food restaurants on every corner and preserved
meals easily available in the freezer, obesity and chronic disease rates are higher than ever. Fast foods and processed
meals are generally sorely lacking in fresh fruits and vegetables, fiber and whole grains that contain vital nutrients essential to healthy living. Eating clean eliminates any extra additives that can be dangerous to your health. Also, making homemade gives you control because you know what your foods
contains and where it’s been. We have posted some great information about the many additives in our processed foods on
our blog on our website.
WHOLESALE FOOD AND GRAIN ORDER
Well it is that time of year again for our Whole Sale Order
to be distributed. We have attached the new price list of
the items we can get this year, however if there is something we have missed that you would like to order, please
contact us. This is the best time to get the grains especially
since they will be the cheapest price we can offer you this
year. You are welcome to print off as many lists as you
want and pass them out to any family or
friends. Sometimes you may want to split a box of nuts or
raisins etc. with someone and this is a good way to do it.
MORNING GLORY MUFFINS
From Those Wonderful Comfort Foods Cookbook from Cooking with Chef
Brad - MAKES 4 DOZEN
This recipe makes a large batch which would be great for the freezer or large family get-togethers like family reunions.
2 cups raisins, plumped with hot water
8 cups spelt flour, freshly ground or the equivalent white flour substitute flour (1 part Brown Rice flour, 1 part Barley flour, 1 part
2 cup quinoa, cooked
2 cups maple syrup or 4 cups sugar
2 Tbsp. baking soda
2 Tbsp. cinnamon
2 tsp. salt
8 carrots, grated
4 cups grated apples
2 cups almonds, sliced
2 cups coconut
2 Tbsp. vanilla extract
2 2/3 cup oil
Mix all dry ingredients together first. In the Bosch Mixer bowl
with the whips, whip the 12 eggs until frothy and then add the remaining wet ingredients including the carrots and apples. Change
to the cookie paddles and mix wet ingredients for 10 sec. Stop machine and add the dry ingredients including the nuts and coconut all
at once and jog the machine until flour is mixed in (you don’t want
to over mix muffins as muffins are better when lightly mixed). Bake
in greased muffins cups at 350 degree F. for 25 min. until done.
