Yogurt Herb bread
I'll be using yogurt I made in my crockpot from my yummy raw goat milk I get from a little farm near my house. Of course, mix your 3 Cups of whole wheat pastry flour, kamut or spelt flour with 2 C of yogurt for 12 to 24 hours.
Place flour mixture in food processor and process for several minutes to knead the dough. Add remaining ingredients and process until well blended:
- 1/2 cup filtered water
- 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
- 1 t sea salt
- 2 t baking soda
- 1/4 stick melted butter
- 1/3 c maple syrup *real maple syrup friends! Not pancake corn-syrup
- 1 t dried dill
- 1/2 t dried oregano
- 1/2 t dried thyme
- 1/2 t dried basil
- 1/2 t dried tarragon
Pour into a well-buttered and floured loaf pan (preferably stoneware). Bake at 350 degrees for at least 1 1/2 hours.
Running gal's Famous Pea soup *famous in my house anyway!*
Soak one pound of Organic green peas overnight then drain. I buy mine from Azure Standard.
In a crockpot in the morning, put 1 pound of green peas, 2 quarts of water, 2 smoked ham hocks, 1 chopped carrot, 1 chopped onion, and 1 chopped celery in the pot and turn on medium for the day. Should be ready by dinner. Sometimes, for the last 3 or 4 hours, I turn it to high to make sure those peas get cooked.
