Growing up my younger brother had a food allergy to preservatives, so we were eating clean and organic way before it was ever something most people ever really thought about.
Everything was made from scratch. We had an acre of garden and a small orchard, and what we didn’t grow ourselves we got from local farmers. We raised beef cattle, sheep and rabbits.
The raw whole milk we got, my mom would skim the cream off the top and churn the butter in her KitchenAid. We made homemade bread, and canned all our fruits and vegetables.
Nothing better then a warm slice of fresh out of the oven bread, with fresh churned butter smeared on top…Mmmmmm.
I did not know it at the time, but this had a huge influence in my own homemade way’s.
Here are some of my recipes, enjoy!
