Chamomile, Wildflower & Whole Wheat Bread
Every so often I will be putting up an ALL natural recipe that ties in to the concept of this blog. “Self Sufficiency” I also am a baker who learn from my grandmother how to make Breads, Cheeses, Pastas, and Deserts, and from my Great Grandfather I lasso learns about The Bees and Grafting Fruit Trees, Wild Honeys and Farming.on a small farm 10 acres. BUt for today WE will make a Chamomile
This bead is loaded with natural ingredients and flavor. and is good for the upcoming fall season. Chamomile is good for the Common Cold and with the f;aver of fresh ground wheat and honey is very relaxing and complements the upcoming cooler weather FALL.
Also remember keeping the immune system up to par is vital this time of year so keeping a healthy diet it important and the more we become less dependent on the store and government and rely on each other for raw goods we all will be OK! bartering is also important so that we can obtain the raw goods needed to survive.
Begin to build a friendship(s) with those who you can and would also like to begin a barter community (KEEP IT SYMPLE AT FIRST) and do not forget GOD.
That’s right ask with humility and good intentions for his help. AND WHATCH What happens.
A few beginning ideas I am working on
Herbal and natural Breads with and without Cheese and or vegetables
Corn Breads that need no eggs. ( in case you can get eggs) Corn bread made with Yellow corn is a great source of nutrients for the Brain and entire Body. I like to add Tomatoes and onions and fresh Thyme and herbs but that is another day.
Herbal stuffed vegetables
Chicken and Meats:if I can get my hand on a fresh Chicken I will come up with a few Chicken dishes my grandmother taught me
Fresh Herbal Soups: Hearty Soups But easy and inexpensive to make. and buy hand if ever needed.
If there is a recipes you would like to se let me know I will work on it and test it.
P.S. Attention Cheese makers Save that Whey it is awesome for bread making!!!
