Make It Yourself: Homemade Cultured Butter

Written by Courtney, Contributing Writer After decades under scrutiny, butter has finally making its rightful comeback in the kitchen. Traditional cooks knew all along that butter was nourishing and healthy, but only recently has the modern housewife rediscovered this culinary staple. For decades, butter had a bad reputation, partially due to (un)scientific health claims and partly to that fact that it was lumped together with industrial butter sourced from feedlot cattle. Deep golden yellow butter made from the cream of grass-fed cows free of hormones […]

Guest Post by Kane Holbrook of Real Milk Cheese “ And he will give grass in your fields for your livestock, and you shall eat and be full.” -Deuteronomy 11:15 Cheese has been an important part of healthy cultures since the domestication of livestock. The scriptures refer to cheese more than a few times: Abraham fed his guests curds (Genesis 18:8). David’s father, Jesse, sent him to deliver bread to his brothers and cheese to the commander of the Israel army (1 Samuel 17:18). (This […]

Once upon a time, milk was not such a complex or controversial subject. Cows grazed on green grass. Healthy, well-fed, and free to roam, they produced a nutrient-dense, thick, white liquid which was relished either straight from the cow (raw) or turned into cultured dairy for short-term storage or delectable hard cheeses for long-term storage. It was neither heated to death at ultra-high temperatures, nor were its fat molecules shaken until they shattered into minuscule pieces. It was not demonized as a health hazard, declared to be […]

How to Find Local Sources of Meat

Written by Anne Elliot, Contributing Writer We moved to Minnesota almost 18 months ago, but in that time, I just never got around to finding some good meat for our family. I got lazy, going more often to my local grocery stores rather than taking the time to find a local source for beef, chicken, eggs, and other meat. But because of the recent course I’ve been taking from Wardah at GNOWFGLINS.com, and after reading chapter 11 of Stephanie’s new Real Food on a Real […]
