    Mashed Cauliflower: SWYPO?

    SWYPO is very personal. I had to think long and hard about mashed cauli. I came to the conclusion that for me, it is SWYPO. Basically a vehicle for lots of ghee and coconut milk. Cauli rice does not have the same effect.

    super easy clarified butter

    I make ghee all the time. It's so easy and has more flavor (to me) than clafified butter. I take a pound of butter and toss it into an oven proof pan. One hour and ten minutes into a 300 f degree oven later, the milk solids are nicely browned. That is what gives ghee it's lovely flavor. Then I strain it through a cheesecloth.

    Portable Post-WO Meal

    Pwo is like any food. I used to eat things like sardines or tuna. Now I take leftovers from the night before and enjoy every bit.

    Portable Post-WO Meal may resonate to someone else. Not everyone cares to be like you. As likeable as you are.
  5. Kabob..great question. Kombuchakamp suggests cleaning out the vessel 3-4 times a year if that.
  6. Oh KB..I have sooo many baby SCOBYs that I keep my CB going, but also have a batch brew going to fill in the cold weather gaps. I do have a heat strip so maybe my SCOBYs are reproducing faster.
  7. Omg Vian. Thank you. I neglectef a continuous brew batch so it is way too acidic for it vinegar. I am going to take the scobys out. Save one or two. Compost/flush the others and start fresh with sweet tea. I do not like that overly vinegar flavor.

    Paleo Plantain Beef Pie?

    Yes, I have a freezer full of ground beef that was on sale at WF last week. Cant wait to make this as soon as I find the ripe plantains. Or, I was thinking of subbing with Japanese sweet potatoes.

    Paleo Plantain Beef Pie?

    Dried fruit is fine as an ingredient. You just dont want to be dipping into and snacking.

    Cauliflower Soup

    Just to add to another CMTG awesome and so easy soup. Silky Ginger Zucchini soup. Probably would not work with water, but such an awesome soup. I make it every week as soon as my bone broth for the week is ready.
  11. Kabob..unfortunately, those nice tips dont have any affect on the gum left by the GT Mylar labels. I tried them before using Goo Gone. If someone doesn't want to use Goo Gone..just leave the labels on. They are pretty labels.
  12. Jent, you may want to burp them so the bottles dont explode. That way, you can decide how much fizz has built up and whether it's time to drink them or let them sit longer. I think hibiscus seems to really fizz up. I wasn't using enough goo gone at first either. It's a little shocking how much it takes.
  13. "I am glad Susan weighed in. I am far too lazy to do it " Maybe..but you have stellar fizz and I never do. Grrr...
  14. Wow! I'm impressed. Bottling mine tonight and plan to put tons of hibiscus in there! "Side note - has anyone found a magical way to get the goo under the labels off the GT bottles?! I've tried SOS pads, stainless steel pads and even Goo Gone. I've googled and looked at this thread and hadn't found anything, but I still have yet to make it through all 54 pages before this so maybe I missed it!" I can help you with that. Fill the bottles with hot water and cap them. Dont get the labels wet. Let sit for 5 minutes. Then peel off from the top of where the label comes together to form the seam. If the label starts to leave paper on the bottle, just get it started again with your fingernail. When the mylar label is off, use goo gone to remove the glue from the bottle. When your mojo is good, very little goo stays on the bottle.

    chicken bones?

    " Whenever I make chicken broth I always give the bones a whack to crack them but good so I get all the good stuff in them. I use a cleaver for this." I love this idea. I will bash my bones next time.
