ood morning – Doesn’t time fly when you are having fun? Fall is such a wonderful time of year. Well our time here at the Diamond S flies by way too fast and computer technology is not my long suit, so I apologize for getting info for the week to you all so late or not at all.
This week Amelia and I are having fun with another new Greek yogurt! While she stayed at the Dairy and milked yesterday and took care of everything I loaded up with Gene real early and went with him to for other ranch business, before getting to Riverton a big RASPBERRY sign caught my eye, and I talked him into going there instead of to a restaurant for breakfast! When we got to the turnoff, a cardboard sign attached to their nice Raspberry sign said “Sorry sold out – check at the end of the week” , hung for all to see. But we saw a couple at the farm so drove in and visited with them. They were from Newcastle picking up 25 flats, they’d just finished loading and were waiting to pay for them. They said, “The owners daughter will be here in about 20 minutes, might be worth waiting and talking to her.” So we waited and visited. Sure enough we were allowed to search for ripe berries, which we found plenty to add to this weeks Greek Yogurt. I hope you all enjoy the treat as much as we are! Limited supply order early if possible. 1/2 pints $4, pints $6 and pint & 1/2 $8.
About our yogurt and any of our products that require sweetener, we use only organic products, and natural sweeteners – honey from the bees on our ranch, and pure maple syrup. We only add small amounts, just to enhance the product we are making. Once you become accustomed to less sweetener, it’s amazing how delicious things become! If our sweetened products aren’t sweet enough for you feel free to add a little more of either, at home. If however you ever want to do a sugar detox, the cravings for very sweet anything subside within about 5 days. I’ve read refined sugar is as addicting as heroin. I really don’t know about drug addiction, but do know I completely quit all forms of sugar including natural sugars in anything from fruit to carrots, and it was hard the first 5 days but got so much easier. Now I’m able to eat small amounts but stick mainly to the natural sugars, in fruits, veggies and the two sweeteners mentioned above!
This week come try one of Amelia’s favorite recipes for Potted Cheese. We will have it at Crafts and Bee Healthy for all to sample with either crackers or sourdough bread. Of course we will use our products that the recipe calls for such as - butter, crème fraiche &Colby cheese plus herbs from Craft Farm. Recipes will be available tomorrow.
