Sorry I am a bit late on this thread. I have just gotten my supply of raw milk back so am appreciating all the ideas for cream. My kids just like to drink it so it is rare that I get an opportunity to make anything. They were very miffed to have to spend the winter with pasteurised milk & butter! This year I am going to stockpile butter in the freezer so we don't run out.

I have a question. Anyone here know how to make gelatin from stock bones ? I made the kids some orange jelly which they really enjoyed. All I did was chopped up a whole heap of fresh oranges & added some gelatin to set it. I have never seen organic gelatin but I can get organic stock bones.

Looks like a couple of our baby chickens are roos so we will be having roast chicken some time soon. Well in a couple of months probably. Not sure if I am looking forward to it or not.

I am going back to NT way of eating next week... needing to prep everything from scratch this week and do the best that I can with what I have in the pantry. I miss feeling good all the time, I miss knowing that my food is made out of food, and I miss heachache-free days.

Glad to see so many familiar faces.

I have a batch of bone broth in the crockpot right now. I've started doing it in there and getting really good results.

Well, I made butter from Sam's (that's the new cow, she's a Guernsey) cream this week. It was so yellow and good! I'm making yogurt right now with her milk. I can't wait to try it tomorrow. I made pudding earlier in the week; it went very quickly, as the children loved it!

We're getting a 1/4 of grass-fed beef in about 10 days. I am looking forward to trying that too.

I'm going to try some of those cream ideas soon. I just have to get the cream from the farm next time.

What are your favorite non-soup ways to cook butternut squash? Can I use that in place of pumpkins in something like muffins?

I've had success using it anywhere you would use pumpkin or any other winter squash. I really like it in bread with walnuts.

My Fav non soup squash idea is to take the baked squash and mix with bitter greens, hemp oil and hemp hearts and serve over steak. Yum.

We were really busy around here lately, we had an ancestor party last night in honor of the Halloween/Samhain holiday. Basically you have a potluck where you bring a dish of your ancestors, and memorabilia of your dearly departed which you put on an altar, and go around the table telling stories about your dead relatives. We started doing this last year and had a great time.
