Homemade Apple Cider Vinegar

Published December 27, 2022 by tindertender

In about four weeks this will be apple cider vinegar.

I had a bunch of scraps from making pies and such over the last few days, so I stuck them in a jar and poured water and sugar on them.

My youngest came in the kitchen and said “ooh, mama it’s pretty.”

She’s right, it’s absolutely beautiful. Sure it is aesthetically pleasing. But this quart jar is more than just aesthetics.

It’s connection, it’s knowledge, it’s real food. The very things we strive toward. The things we yearn for. The things we all desperately need.

A true connection to our food, to our goods, to our purpose. To know where it came from, how it was made… the path it took from it’s true form to the food or good it becomes.

We all need that connection in order to gain a deep understanding to the world around us… a world that no matter how hard we try, we are very much a part of. We aren’t above it. We are it and the sooner we begin to embrace that fact again, the better.

Homemade ACV:

Add to a clean quart jar apple peels, cores and scraps about 3/4 full. Combine water and sugar at a ratio of 1 cup of water to 1 tablespoon of sugar. Stir the sugar to dissolve. Pour over the scraps until they’re completely covered, making sure there’s a bit of room at the top of the jar. Cover with a coffee filter and a rubber band for a couple of weeks. Smell it in two weeks it should smell like apple cider without the tang. Strain out the scraps and let it sit another 2-4 weeks, until it has that vinegar smell. If it doesn’t, just be patient and let it sit a bit longer. If you get a gelatinous blog, congrats, you e created “the mother” which you can use for future batches to help the reach vinegar status more quickly.

Gut Health

Herbs for detoxing the gut are a must, our gut is the foundation of everything, if our gut is imbalanced our immune system won’t function properly making it harder to rid ourselves of toxins.

Some recommendations:

astragalus root – boosts immunity and supports liver function; helps to flush out toxins from the body. take 1-3 grams of powdered root daily in water or tea.

cayenne pepper – reduces inflammation, flushes out toxins and increases blood flow. add it to soups or teas and take 1/2 teaspoon daily.

ginger – regulates digestion and can lower cholesterol levels; also aids in cancer prevention. use fresh ginger, grated into hot water and added to foods. take 1-2 grams daily.

turmeric – lowers LDL “bad” cholesterol (this is good) while boosting HDL “good” cholesterol. It has strong anti-inflammatory properties as well as antioxidant effects.

turmeric may decrease risk of certain cancers including colon and prostate cancer. take 1/4 cup turmeric powder daily in water or food.

dandelion – rich in vitamins A, C and B complex; diuretic that cleanses your body of toxins and excess fluid. drink dandelion tea several times a day by steeping 1 tsp dried leaves per cup of boiling water for 10 minutes.

fennel – stimulates digestive juices and appetite. Take 2 capsules twice daily.

garlic – supports liver function and fights infection. take 500 mg three times daily.

echinacea – boosts immune system and is known to naturally aid in digestion. take 4 capsules daily.

lavender – improves sleep and relieves anxiety. take 1 drop in capsule form before bedtime.

During the holidays we’re more frequent to consume excessive foods, indulging in all of our favorite treats -that combined with the seasonal changes can weigh the body down. it’s important to take optimal care of our health to keep us vitalized during the slow seasons.

Always consult your doctor or physician before incorporating herbs into your daily regimen, especially if you’re using pharmaceutical medicine or suffer from any autoimmune diseases.

Roundup in the Food Supply

Published December 12, 2022 by tindertender

Why is roundup being used in the food supply? Roundup has already paid out millions of dollars due to giving people who spray it cancer. Sure, they’ve set a limit on how much can be in it, but some folks, and kids, eat it nearly every day, especially in the winter.

There’s hot yo be a correlation to roundup being used on the foods grown and the number of cancer patients yearly.

Why is the government allowing cancer causing substances in the food supply? Probably because sick people are good business.

Be careful what you ingest.
The government regulatory agencies do not have humans best interest at heart.
They just want money, paid to them off trying to “cure” it.

Sending Blessings!!

Since I don’t really want to say “Happy Thanksgiving” to my indigenous friends and family, I’ll say instead,

My wish for you this day is happiness. I hope you are able to enjoy time with, and a meal with, those you love.

Today, my father is coming for a meal. We have a lot to discuss about our future. I am excited as our relationship is blossoming more than I had ever hoped it would.

I wish you love. I wish you abundance. I wish you joy. I wish you peace.

I love you.

Mix and put on floured bread board and knead until mixture is smooth. Put dough in a greased bowl, cover with towel and let it rise for 1 1/2 hours. Remove from bowl and put on bread board, knead in the 1/2 cornmeal. Make dough into 2 balls rolling each into 12 inch circles 1/2 inch thick. Cut into 2 inch squares and drop into hot cooking oil. (Works best with cast iron skillet.) Fry 5 to 6 pieces at a time for only a few moments. Drain on paper towel and sprinkle with white powdered sugar.

Navajo #2

1 Tbs. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup warm water or milk
2 quarts oil for deep frying
Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl and knead until smooth and soft, but not sticky. Depending on the altitude and humidity, you may need to adjust the liquid or the flour, so go slowly and balance accordingly. Be careful not to overwork the dough, or it will become tough and chewy. Brush a tablespoon of oil over the finished dough and allow it to rest 20 minutes to 2 hours in a bowl covered with a damp cloth. After the dough has rested, heat the oil in a broad, deep frying pan or kettle until it reaches a low boil (375º). Pull off egg-sized balls of dough and quickly roll, pull, and path them out into large, plate-sized rounds. They should be thin in the middle and about 1/4 inch thick at the edges. Carefully ease each piece of flattened dough into the hot, boiling oil, one at a time. Using a long-handled cooking fork or tongs, turn the dough one time. Allow about 2 minutes cooking time per side. When golden brown, lift from oil, shake gently to remove bulk of oil, and place on layered brown paper or paper towels to finish draining.
Serve hot with honey, jelly, fine powdered sugar, wojape, or various meat toppings.
The magic is in frying the bread quickly! The hotter the oil, the less time it takes to cook. The less time it takes to cook, the lighter the texture and lower the fat content.
