    So I’m guessing the peach cobbler recipe is in the preserving ebook? :)

    Yes, sorry I didn’t write all of that out in the post. I was trying to keep the menu plan brief, but I know that made it a little vague. ;)

    I’ve been soaking my grains for a while now and I have to say I LOVE IT! I was a little doubtful at first about how this would work, but it is so easy and I am fuller after I eat a breakfast made with soaked grains.

    There is one question I’ve been dying to ask about soaked grains. Is there a limit to how long I can soak them? Once I got started, I accidentally left a pot of oatmeal on the stove for most of the day, well over 24 hours total. I decided to leave it and cook it up again the next morning. It tasted fine and we had no adverse affects, but I wondered about food safety. That and the old nursery rhyme about “pease porridge in the pot 9 days old!” kept going through my head. If the pot contains just grain, a bit of flour & water, how long will it take to go bad? I’m curious!

    I don’t think there’s an official “too long to soak” period necessarily. I do know that sometimes I’ve let something soak for two days (because I forgot about it!) and it got moldy (that was in the summertime). If it doesn’t get nasty (and trust me, you’ll be able to tell!), then I think it’s fine to eat.

    Thanks for your quick reply! You and Matt keep up the great work! You have a real ministry here.

    Thanks for linking to your cream cheese salsa dip! I have a 6 month old on the WAPF raw milk formula, and I’m producing TONS of homemade cream cheese (from dripping the whey out of homemade yogurt), because I need the whey to make the formula.

    I’ve been seasoning it with garlic powder, onion powder, basil and sea salt to eat on crackers. We love it, but it’s nice to have a second way to use it up. I made your dip last night and it was a hit!
