Let us know what you think of the book. I thought it looked interesting and put it next on my list. We allow ourselves a few $ each that we use for impulse/wants spending and most of mine goes on books.
DH made his first batch of sauerkraut about 3.5 weeks ago and eats it every day. It is a bit salty/sour? for me still, but I have a little bit. Have also made the tomato sauce a couple of times and like that. It keeps well in the fridge too. What does the keffir taste like? I actually bought keffir grains a couple of weeks ago but haven't done anything with them yet.
My sister in NZ can get nitrate free bacon. Lucky thing. I've found a local (15km away) butcher that does free range pork from his own farm. He showed me the bag of preservative used in curing bacon and the nitrate content is less than 0.01%. I'm not sure how much is considered harmful but that amount does not sound like a lot.
Don't know if you have this recipe for cracker biscuits but it is very simple. Tried them out on our family visitors who thought they were good enough to take the recipe home.
1 cup almond flour
1 egg white
1 pinch salt
Mix all together, roll out between 2 sheets of baking paper, mark into shapes with a knife and cook at 160C for 15 minutes, removing the cooked ones then leaving the rest in for a bit longer. I added fresh chopped rosemary for a nice flavour.
Our trip to NZ will be a bit sad for part of it. Our DIL in Christchurch rang 2 days ago to say she has been diagnosed with motor neuron disease. There is no cure and there are only a very few people who survive past 5 years. She has been having tests for over 2 years now so is understandably very upset about the prognosis.
We are supposed to be getting a lot of rain and wild weather tonight and tomorrow morning so must go and check my new baby chickens before I go to bed.
