    We use a lot of maple syrup. I get it from Target or Safeway as of now because it is about $15.50. It’s the best deal so far. We used to order it by the gallons when overseas. Even with shipping it was cheaper.

    Thanks for the deals you’ve shared. I think I might snag the coconut oil as well.

    Just feel like I need to share-we bought this brand of maple syrup and although its not bad, its not nearly as good as other brands we have tried. I won’t purchase it again.

    Good to know – can you tell me what you didn’t like about it? :)

    I have used NOW brand from the health food store but it was so expensive. A while back you sent out a healthy deal for Highland Sugar Works. I purchased it twice but when it ran out this last time they were out of it. So I went with Anderson because of the price. The first time we used it my hubby and I both commented that it wasn’t nearly as good as the other brand. I can’t really explain why…just didn’t have as good of a flavor. I have gotten used to it but I don’t put near as much on my pancakes (which is probably a good thing lol). Its not so bad that I would demand a refund or anything. Just not my favorite brand… I was surprised that there would be a difference. Next time I will order the Highland.

    Have you ever done a post on what you buy where. It can be difficult to track down all the best “real food” deals and just love to hear what others have already learned. Especially what you get from Azure as this is something I am signing up for but a little at a lost on what to start buying.

    Here’s a resource page for you: http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/whole-food-resources

    I buy many of my foods from several different sources, depending on the sales I find. That page will give you the run down. :)

    I am a little confused about Sucanat. Although I have never used it before, I thought I had seen you post a photo with Sucanat in it before and it appeared darker colored and more powdery than the brand in this post. Do you think I saw something different? Does Sucanat always look the same? Also, can you sub Sucanat for both white sugar and brown sugar in recipes? What about powdered sugar?

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    Ah, I bet that was “Muscovado Sugar” that you are remembering. I use sucanat most of all – in place of both white and brown sugar. For powdered sugar, I either use unbleached, organic powdered sugar that I get through Vitacost (http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/get-10-free-credit-to-spend-at-vitacost-earn-more-by-referring-your-friends) or I make it with sucanat (http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/make-your-own-powdered-sugar-with-sucanat).

    Hi Laura. I wanted to share a little news from last fall regarding Maple Syrup. In Quebec, Canada thieves broke into storage buildings and stole millions of dollars worth of the syrup. This winter they arrested five people regarding this theft. Any one interested in this could probably google the story.

    Wow, I’ll have to check that out!

    We get our maple syrup at Costco – they carry a lot of organic products for a good price.

    I wish I had a Costco close by. They seem to carry such great options!

    They do. It is not very close to us either – about 2 hours. We go about every two months or so – shopping, lunch , etc. – makes for a fun day.

    Thank you so much. I am just starting out on my whole foods journey and this type of info is very helpful as is you whole page of resources and well everything on here-thank you! I ordered the syrup and coconut oil and I had $10 gift card on Amazon so $6 for maple syrup is awesome I think. I was just at an Amish store and found some yeast and baking powder and eggs for a good price. Can’t figure out how to find a raw milk source though. I tried googling it here for WI,but came up with only one place pretty far from me. How does one locate such places-is it word of mouth only? I hope not because I really don’t know people who eat this way. Oh and what do you do for powdered sugar? I started cleaning out my pantry tonight. Am looking forward to this new journey the Lord is leading us on.

    Laura Reply:

    Wow, good job!! Sounds like you are doing great! :)

    Try looking up localharvest.com to see if it lists a raw milk resource near you. For powdered sugar, I either make my own (http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/make-your-own-powdered-sugar-with-sucanat) or buy unbleached organic through Vitacost (http://heavenlyhomemakers.com/make-your-own-powdered-sugar-with-sucanat).

    http://www.localharvest.org
    http://www.eatwild.org

    and this website: http://familycow.proboards.com/index.cgi

    It’s actually a message board for people that own cows basically but I
    use it all the time for cooking etc advice since
    I get my raw milk from a friend with a Jersey :)

    I bet if you ask on there they will be able to point you in the right direction.

    The other thing you can do is ask around Amish settlements I’ve heard they
    CAN be open to selling their raw milk. Make sure you get it from a farmer
    you trust though that doesn’t use a ton of grain and lets the cows out to
    graze!

    Another place to search for a source of raw milk is the WAPF real milk website:

    Question about coconut oil…is it a good swap for crisco? I use butter-flavored crisco sticks to make cookies. I know Crisco is bad on so many levels, but nothing makes chocolate chip cookies turn out as perfectly as crisco. So, can I swap coconut oil for crisco, and does it impart a coconut flavor?

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    Yes, you can. Although I have found that Tropical Tradition’s Palm Shortening is a perfect solution for subbing crisco. I love palm shortening! :)

    [Reply]

    Jane Reply:

    Thanks! I’ll give palm shortening a try. I’ve worked hard over the last year or so to use better ingredients in cooking. Crisco was the last for which I could not find a suitable replacement. I appreciate your help.

    [Reply]

    Jamie Reply:

    palm shortening rocks in homemade rolls for me so far.
    I never used shortening in CC cookies before (says the girl who is the
    first to cook in her family since her Great-GREAT gma…)

    So maybe not the most talked about part of the post.
    But I had to share… part of starting our Healthy Eating… was also doing more “Healthy Living”.
    So I just signed up for Fitness with Jen’s 12 week program.
    I’m nervous, excited, and READY…I think. :-). Thanks for sharing the great deals.

    Awesome, good job! You will NOT regret doing Jen’s program. I have benefited so much from her help!

    Does the Rapunzel Pure Organic Whole Cane Sugar go bad quickly and is it similar to the Wholesome Sweeteners Fair Trade Organic Sucanat you have under your whole food resources? I am afraid to get so many bags in fear that is goes bad quickly. Thanks!

    [Reply]

    Laura Reply:

    No, it doesn’t go bad quickly, and it is basically the same as the Wholesome Sweeteners I have listed. I have found that I prefer Rapunzel brand as it has a milder taste. :)
