I just ate the best-tasting shitaki mushroom of any I've ever tasted.
I'm growing them from a kit. Absolutely fantastic.
Below you see jars of fermenting veggies. Some kimchi and some assorted veggies. I use different herbs for different flavors. A little bit with each meal keeps the good bacteria in the gut.
This is a jar of Irish Moss gel. It was fresh Irish Moss that has been thoroughly washed and then blended with water into the gel below. It acts as a thickening agent with various recipes. My favorite is using it in raw cacao pudding.
This is a shelf in my fridge freezer. The little jars contain frozen cat food. I follow Dr. Lisa Pierson's cat food recipe. I have a Tasin 108 electric grinder that pulverizes whole chicken and rabbits, bones et al. I add a lot of supplements and here is the raw cat food. I took a pathetic-looking scroungy cat from the shelter and started feeding her a raw diet with added supplements. At first she wouldn't come within 20 feet of humans. Now she's gorgeous, silky fur and friendly with everyone. Blame it on the food.
Below is a 4 gallon crock that is half filled with sauerkraut. There's a plate on top of the kraut and a rock on top of the plate to put pressure on the kraut. Kraut is also wonderful for the digestion. If you've never eaten home-made sauerkraut, you ain't eaten kraut at all. I grew up on it.
And last is a tonic in the making. It's been fermenting 6 weeks and I could strain it now (you just use the liquid) but I haven't had the time. It can ferment longer and I think I'll let it go a couple more months. This tonic will cure most everything. NO KIDDING. This summer I had a lung congestion and I was hacking around for a month. My daughter had made this tonic and forgot about it. She remembered it when she saw how miserable I was and brought me some. I took a little of it twice a day for 3 days and like magic, my lungs felt normal again. No more coughing. There's a video of a man making it on YouTube. It's called the Master Tonic if you are interested in making your own.
These are a few of my health secrets. I also just came off of a 2 week water fast. That, my Bloggy Friends, is 14 days without food. I've done periodic water fasts all of my adult life. I laugh when younger people gasp and tell me that fasting isn't good for me. I tell them I'll listen to them when they are 83. Adios Bloggy friends. My love and good health to you.
