Is Your Sugar Clean?
Nearly six years ago, I was in the kitchen looking of a bag of white sugar and read the words may contain “Charred Animal Bones.” I asked my husband about it and we began searching and discovered that white sugar is often filtered through the bones of animals – cows or pigs! So what does that mean? It means that pig bones which are UNCLEAN, are being used to in sugar! The Woman of Substance has written an article on this already, you must read it.
So what do you do now for sugar? Use Vegan Organic or Natural Cane Sugar. Yes it costs 2x more however you will have to learn to use less. Often in cookies I use 1/4 cup brown (which I make from Cane Sugar and Molasses) and 1/4 cup cane sugar. I go to Publix just to get a 3lb container of the cane sugar usually about $3.79! Kroger used to sell the same container for $1 more but now they only sell the 2lb bag for $3.79 (so I get one more pound for the same price, just by going to a different store I save money). I buy one container for each week and try to make it last as long as possible. Just recently I made 2 containers last 3 weeks!
As you can see it is Vegan and Kosher!
Mother and 8 Children Die in House Fire
This story is very sad and since I read of it last week I have thought of it daily Mother and 8 Children Die in House Fire. When the days are the hardest, I think about not having anyone of our family members around.
Big Clusters Maple Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Granola
I use quite a few recipes from Averie Cooks! She has some vegan, easy and delicious recipes! Today’s recipe is just what I was looking for. I often make granola but have grown tired of all the 10 or so other recipes and I wanted something that was different. Big Cluster Maple Cinnamon Chocolate Chip Granola is just that! I will be making it soon. Also, she has a link for iHerb.com in the post with a discount code! iHerb has lower prices on many of the supplements, vitamins and natural foods we buy so I will be checking them out when we need more!
Though I do not have the BOB readers, I do use the BOB Printables from This Reading Mama! I use many of her printables and our kids like them very much. If you become a subscriber you will receive ”subscriber only” free printables!
Vinegar – for the dishwasher?
In my last pass it along, I shared with you how recommended using vinegar instead of dishwasher detergent. I have been doing this for nearly two weeks and it does work. However you must scrub all the food off every dish, which is sometimes difficult when I have the kids helping or when I don’t run the dishwasher until late in the evening! So I am still going to have normal detergent on hand for those times, but using less detergent saves money.
How to Substitute Sugar for Honey
So by now you know that Honey is not what believers in YAHUAH should not be consuming, so if you are like me and prefer to use sugar you may be wondering how to substitute honey in your recipes. In the back of one of my Cooking Light Cookbooks, I have this wonderful list of substitutions that I use frequently. Here is what it says for honey:
1 c. Honey = 1 1/4 c, sugar + 1/2 c, water
Usually, I make the whole cup and then put it in a glass container and store it in the fridge and use it as I need to.
