Art Every Day #26 – Mustard & Cereal

Thank you all for the encouragement. I’m feeling great again. The vitamins really did the trick. I’m also watching that I get enough rest, excercise, and nourishing foods.

Today my creativity was excercised in the kitchen. I made some delicious hot mustard.

The recipe from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook is my favorite. It calls for 4 oz. of dry mustard. To spice things up a bit, I use hot dry mustard for half of this. The end product will make our eyes light up and our nose hairs curl. Quite delicious! This recipe is a lacto-fermented product with the lacto-ingredient being whey. After sitting on the counter for 3 days, it will be ready for the fridge or our mouths.

Another delicious creation from the kitchen is a 5 grain cereal, also a recipe from the Nourishing Traditions cookbook.

The cereal is coarsely ground wheat, rice, millet, split peas, and oats. The recipe makes 10 cups of cereal. After soaking overnight and cooking, one cup of this mix will serve 4 people for breakfast. After adding a bit of butter and milk, the cost for this ORGANIC breakfast is less than 20 cents per person. Organic cereal does not equal expensive unless the cereal eaten is precooked and comes in a large cardboard box. This is truly art!

    Nourishing traditions is one of those books on my wish list. Maybe I’ll see if my library has it….Blessings to you. Love, Tami
