  • Refrigerator Pickles

    Anybody out there make uncooked refrigerator pickles? I put in thin sliced cucumber, onion, garlic, salt, white vinegar, dill and pickling spice and they're always great, but looking for some alternatives.

  • coffee

    Hi Luna blu, When I went raw the first time back in 2014, I successfully kicked the coffee habit but went bac to it. I now have brewed coffee mixed 1/3 - 2/3 with water most days (no raw police yet). However... Dandy Blend is an awesome substitute (but notice the 230 degree roasting temp) Here's how they describe their product:

    How is Dandy Blend Made?
    Dandy Blend is made of only 5 ingredients — extracts of barley, rye, dandelion, chicory and beet roots.

    a. the ingredients are dried and roasted separately, each for their own prescribed time. Dandelion roots are roasted at around 230 degrees fahrenheit until they smell like a sweet coffee-hot chocolate mix.
    b. all five are combined in the proper proportions, and placed in a hot water-filled vat.
    c. they are allowed to steep for the prescribed period of time.
    d. the water, with the soluble portions of all the ingredients, is drained from the grounds
    e. The water portion is spray dried. The grounds, with all the water-insoluble substances, are discarded.
    f. the powder that remains after the water is driven off is Dandy Blend.

     

    It mixes easily with water and can be used for coffee flavor in smoothies, etc.

  • urinary tract infection

    Hi, I hope you're feeling better by the time you're reading this. It's my understanding that cranberry juice has a compound in it that keeps the bacteria from sticking to the sides of the urinary tract. Lakewood Organics sells an unsweetened cranberry juice, but even if you can't get that brand, look for the best available to you, even if you have to swallow some sugar (!) - it's such an effective, time-tested treatment.
