Amish Pancake Recipe

Good Old Fashion Pancake Recipe

Stop purchasing those boxes of pancake mixes in the store.  Everything you need to make great pancakes is sitting in your pantry.

Play around with different flours.  Whole wheat is our favorite.  Don’t over look buckwheat, oat flour or go wild and experiment with different flours.

This pancake recipe is easy to throw together, yet so delicious.  The pancakes rise and are light and fluffy.

Ingredients

1 1/2 cups flour (your choice)
3 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/4 cups milk
1 egg

Add all the dry ingredients to your bowl and stir.  Add the milk and egg.  Stir until combined.

Heat your frying pan or griddle.  Pour 1/4 cup pancake mix for each pancake.  Brown on both sides.  Makes around 8 pancakes, depending on how big you make them.  ENJOY!

Tootsie Rolls

Tootsie Rolls

Homemade Tootsie Rolls are simple to make and talk about a special treat.  Plus know what goes into making them is always a plus around our home.  This recipe makes quite a few of these little goodies.  There are no fancy ingredients, I always have everything I need sitting in my pantry.

Ingredients

2 Tablespoons butter softened
1/2 cup cocoa powdered
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup powdered milk
1/2 cup corn syrup
3 cups powdered sugar

In a medium size bowl add all the ingredients.  Stir until you can’t stir anymore.

Now using your hands start turning and kneading everything in the bowl.  You can do this in the bowl or on your counter top.  The cocoa powder will start to come out and will turn everything a nice chocolate color.  Just keep kneading until everything is completely combined.

Tootsie Roll Dough

Divide the dough into 4 to 6 equal parts.  Using your hands roll the dough into a long rope.

Tootsie Roll Ropes

Cut the Tootsie Roll ropes into the size you would like.  Roll them in wax paper and twist the ends tight.  ENJOY!

Kiwi Dehydrated

 

Kiwi Dehydrated

Kiwis were on sale and well I can’t pass up a deal.  Plus I am always looking for ways to make healthy treats to have on hand for family, friends and guests.  Plus dehydrated fruit goes well into gift baskets.

Dried kiwi taste a bit tart.  If you would like a sweeter treat sprinkle with fine sugar as soon as they are done dehydrating.  Let them cool before packaging.

Gather up your supplies kiwi, knife, dehydrator or you may use your oven.

Wash kiwi.  Peel kiwi and slice into 1/4 inch slices.  If you have an egg slicer this works really well.  Just don’t slice them to thin, they will burn.

If you want to keep the bright green color of your kiwi make a simple ascorbic acid dip.  One cup water and 2 tablespoon ascorbic acid.  Stir to mix.  Dip your kiwi slices into the mixture.

Place kiwi slice onto your trays.  Don’t overcrowd or overlap slices.

Dry on 135 degrees.  Watch so they don’t burn.  We like our somewhat chewy not crunchy.  I like to check mine every 30 minutes.  They should be dry to the touch.

Store in airtight container or bag.  Don’t refrigerate.

You now have healthy snacks that you will feel good about giving your family.  ENJOY!

Farm Eggs Wash or Not

Fresh Farm Eggs Wash or Not

Heading out to the chicken coop to gather our farm fresh eggs is a daily experience and one that I enjoy.  Sometimes the eggs are somewhat dirty.  Very first thing you would think to do after bringing them into the house is to wash them.  After all the eggs you purchase from the local grocery story are all nice and clean.

Let me share some facts about eggs.  Eggs are covered in bacteria and germs.  As you can see from the photo these eggs are not clean.   I like to call it have some of the farm left on them.  Biggest risk with eggs is with salmonella bacteria.

Let’s talk about the eggshell.  Eggshells are made of tiny calcium carbonate crystals.  Every eggshell looks solid.  Actually each eggshell is covered with pores.  These pores allow the transfer of bacterial between the inner and out eggshell.

Hold on if your thinking your never going to eat another egg in your life.  Nature has developed its own defense against contamination.  Just before Henrietta lays her egg, her body deposits a protein like mucous coating on the outside of her egg.  The protective coating is called the bloom.  The pores of the egg are sealed, which stops the transfer of bacteria from outer shell to the inner shell and egg center.

The bloom will remain intact as long as the egg is NOT WASHED.  Just running the egg under water will remove this protective layer and the egg pores open.

The U.S. is one of the few countries that requires washing of commercial eggs.  Compared to european countries who legally restrict commercial eggs from be washed.

For example in Ireland only unwashed eggs receive Grade A or AA standards.  Ireland can’t commercially sell eggs that have been washed.

My farm fresh eggs are never washed.  The bloom is left on and for this reason the eggs don’t have to be refrigerated.

Please share your thoughts on using farm fresh eggs over store-bought eggs.  I look forward to hearing from all of you.
