Interesting - I have the 2nd edition, and it's definately a half cup of rapadura. I'll make a note of your modification in my book - even in the 2nd edition, not sure that I trust these recipes yet!

Has anyone had any luck with the other kvass recipe in NT, the one with hops and bread and all that? Supposedly it has all these wonderful nutritional benefits. I tried making it, and it was so disgusting looking that I threw it all out and never tried making it again. Any successes?

Just the other day I made the Basic Muffin recipe and added the raisins. I forgot to add the cinnamon. Anyway, even though I put 2/3 cup of raisins, it wasn't enough. Also, this muffin recipe was not too sweet with 1/4 maple syrup. Actually for me I would add alittle more maple suryp unless there is another sweeterner to use that is sweeter, rapadura maybe?

In response to the desserts in NT being so sweet, I agree.
This week, I got cream from my cow share, and since this is the time of year for best cream, last night I made the vanilla ice cream recipe. I left out the arrowroot, and instead of 1/2 cup maple syrup, I used just 2 Tbs. It came out GREAT, no need for more sweetness!

Hmm... shouldn't this thread move to "Traditional Foods"?

Subbing. I've had trouble with several of the NT recipes so tucked the book back on the shelf. Maybe I'll dig it out and dig through this thread to see if I can make sense of it.

I had to pipe in that I tried the carrot cake and cream cheese recipe, and it turned out fabulous - I know some haven't had luck with the cake recipes, but I followed it exactly and was happy with it.

I also wanted to add my $0.02 that I use the 1/2 c of maple syrup in the ice cream recipe and it isn't too sweet for us. Though we do leave out the arrowroot because the cream here is so thick.

While I enjoy reading Nourishing Traditions, I have not found one single recipe that could not be improved in some way. I've started using the book as a reference, and not as a cookbook. Sad. It could have used some major recipe experimenting and editing.
