Maple Syrup Snow Candy

In our family, we have cold weather traditions. This makes the winter days not quite so long. Really blizzardy day? Seven Brides for Seven Brothers! First day below -30C? Maple syrup snow candy! Most recipes I’ve seen call for a cup of maple syrup but I find for 5 kids and two adults (my niece and nephew are usually here for it), half a cup means everyone gets a treat without it being excessive or too expensive. Maple syrup ain’t cheap yo!

Make Your Own Tallow Balm {Best all purpose salve and body butter EVER}

The fats in tallow are so close to the make-up of fats below the skin on our body, making Tallow Balm so nourishing and absorbable to our parched skin. In winter our hands get so chapped and dry we can’t live without it. In summer, the dirt from the garden dries out our feet and hands, often making cracks in our feet, ouch! I use Tallow Balm as a baby bum cream, for chapped cheeks, lip balm, cuts, you name it! My aunt gave up steroid cream for eczema after trying this and her hands have never been happier. I hope you enjoy our all purpose balm.

Tamari Roasted Almonds

Tamari Roasted Almonds are a major family favourite in our house. A batch of these little nuts doesn’t last long as the aroma seems to bring on locusts! If you don’t stock tamari sauce  in your pantry, you can always use soy sauce as a substitute. Either way is tasty and sure to satisfy your salty snack cravings!

Wild Mushroom Seasoning Salt

Whats a family with a plethora of dehydrated wild mushrooms supposed to do? We make Wild Mushroom Seasoning Salt, of course! We use Wild Mushroom Seasoning Salt in place of seasoning salt on the vast majority of our cooking. It’s my love language, my baby, my one true love for seasoning food.

Skillet Cornbread

Skillet Cornbread is my speciality. I’m not just boasting, when I mention I make it, I hear ‘mmmm’ ‘yuuum’ ‘jealooous!’ Whether you freshly mill cornmeal or buy organic from the store, it’s a good recipe to have up your sleeve for serving to gluten free or dairy intolerant friends & family.
