Real Food Challenge Day 5

I have my sourdough working-using a recipe from Emeril. Like I mentioned before, I will post results once I have them. The plan is to combine sourdough and sprouted grains, anyway, as I love sourdough flavor in everything. Today I placed my order for grains and got a piece I was missing for my Vita Mix so I can sprout grains at home. The recipes looks pretty similar to a regular whole grain bread recipe, which is great. The eventual goal, to be honest, would be to grow a patch of grain, like wheat and rye, harvest and eat from it throughout the year. There will be more research (I love Carla Emery and her country living encyclopedia!) before execution, but I am excited to see what I can do. In the meantime, having a place like Paul's Grains, a local grower, available is great, too. Just in case ;)


  1. No :) Sprout grains in jar, dry in oven or dehydrator, GRIND grains in vitamix :)


I welcome hospitable, intelligent discussion. I do not welcome mean-spirited comments. Though they are "moderated" I post pretty much everything, with a very, very small exception-that being spam and those who aim to hurts others intentionally. I'd love hear what you have to say, otherwise!
