Easy to Make Organic Marmalade!

February 11, 2015

Do you love marmalade? I am not a person who eats jam, but about once a month I love good old peanut butter and marmalade on toast. I avoid it when I am eating out mainly because of the pesticides in the orange rind, but also the sugar. I’ve made this comfort food healthier by buying Ezekiel Bread (all sprouted) and organic peanut butter, and now I am buying organic oranges and dehydrating my own marmalade without the use of white sugar. You can purchase organic marmalades if you can find them, but they do contain sugar. This recipe I found on the internet uses agave, and I used Raw Blue Agave. I have a Excalibur dehydrator so that is what I used, although you could probably dry it in your oven overnight on low. It is very easy, and so good. I also like to serve marmalade on chiffon or angel food cake with whipped cream. Decadent!

Enlist the help of a friend to grate the orange rind while you make the juice and prepare the orange sections. What fun!

Organic Orange Marmalade


7 organic oranges, well scrubbed or whatever number is needed to make

1 cup grated orange rind or zest. A zester makes the product too small so use a grater.

1 cup organic orange juice

1 cup organic orange sections

1 cup Raw Blue Agave

Few saffron leaves

Makes 2 jars, 1 cup each.

1. Grate orange rind to make one cup.

2. Squeeze orange halves to make 1 cup of juice. This will take about ½ of the oranges.

3. Section the remaining oranges and remove the white layer of skin as best you can. Make 1 cup.

4. Combine all ingredients in a bowl.

5. Choose a stainless or glass pan, and line with parchment paper to cover the bottom and up the sides.

6. Place mixture on top of parchment paper.

7. Cover mixture with another layer of parchment paper so it lies flat on top of the mixture.

8. Dehydrate at 135 degrees for 16 to 17 hours.

9. Spoon thickened mixture into glass jars and refrigerate until cool, then cover with tight fitting lid.

Wow, this is so good you’ll be making cakes just to use the marmalade!

Yummy soup for a cold week!

January 7, 2015

Why not simmer up a big batch of this great vegetable borscht for your good health this week? Beets are great for helping to cleanse the liver; make them a regular addition to your diet. This soup is so good with a dollop of goat cream cheese or yogurt, a splash of organic whipping cream or sour cream. It freezes well.

Vegetable Borscht (from Eat Away Illness page 194 see )

5 cups shredded or diced beets

4 chopped onions

1 cup shredded or chopped carrots

2 cups shredded or chopped cabbage

2 cups diced potatoes

3 garlic cloves, diced

Small piece of sea vegetable such as wakame or kombu

3 tbsp. Seasoning – organic vegetable broth cubes, homemade seasoning or Bragg’s All Purpose Liquid Seasoning

Chopped parsley

Unrefined sea salt to taste

10 ounces tomato paste

1 tbsp. Dill weed

Optional: cooked chicken pieces or cooked white beans (legumes)

1. Place first seven ingredients in a large pot. Cover with filtered water or vegetable stock to 1” above veggies.

2. Bring to a boil, then simmer about 20 minutes.

3. Add seasoning, chopped parsley, salt, tomato paste and dill weed.

4. Stir well. Reheat and simmer for 15 minutes.

5. Add chicken pieces f desired for a heartier soup.

6. Serve with a dollop of cream or cheese (see above) if diet allows dairy.

This soup goes well with whole grain corn meal muffins.

Potato Crackers!

December 22, 2014

Are you often looking for ways to use up those leftover mashed potatoes from Christmas dinner? Well here’s the answer! These easy to make crackers are nutrient dense, have no additives or preservatives, and can be 100% organic should you so choose. I purchase organic spelt and make my own flour, but organic spelt flour is available at health food stores and at our Saskatoon Farmer’s Market. Choose buckwheat flour if you wish to make these gluten-free. I love these with a smear of goat cream cheese and my homemade raw salsa. Truly a meal in itself, as all of the macronutrients are there: complex carbohydrates, protein, and essential fats, and all of those healthy raw veggies!

Potato Crackers

Potato Crackers:

3/4 cup organic rolled oats
3/4 cup whole grain spelt flour
1/3 cup butter or ghee for dairy-free
approximately 1 1/2 cups plain mashed potatoes (I leave the skins on!)

1. Combine the oats and the flour in a bowl.
2. Cut in butter with a pastry blender or your fingers.
3. Add mashed potatoes and knead to form a stiff dough.
4. Roll out carefully on a floured surface and cut out thin rounds using cookie cutter of choice. I made mine about 3″ in diameter.
5. Bake on parchment paper or oiled cookie sheets at 350 F. for 20 minutes or until crisp and lightly browned.

I rolled this dough very thin and made 38 crackers, but experiment for desired thickness.

Merry Christmas!

Spiced Apple Cider! Easy Eggnog!

December 12, 2014

Well ’tis the season! How about a couple of healthy drinks to help celebrate the busy month of December?

Try this wonderful spiced drink for those cold evenings; share with friends.


4 cups organic apple juice concentrate

4 cups pure water or to taste

4 pieces organic orange zest, about 2 each

3 cinnamon sticks

6 allspice berries or anise stars

6 whole cloves

1 slice peeled ginger

1. Heat juice over medium heat.

2. Add remaining ingredients, reduce heat and simmer 20 30 minutes. Do not boil.

3. Strain and serve.

I use the organic apple juice concentrate sometimes available in gallon glass jugs at health food stores. You may increase the spices.

And how about a healthy eggnog? Remember if you are going to eat raw eggs, they MUST be organic. To read my article titled “Will the REAL Egg please stand up?” you may download book three of What Your Doctor Doesn’t Tell You About Foods” on my website for $7.99. A great Christmas gift, this 222 page book contains 18 articles originally published in Wholife, for example, Carbohydrates: The Real Story; The Mighty Chia Seed; Fermenting foods; the Great Milk Debate; What’s the Scoop on Chocolate, and more!


This year I plan to try using homemade coconut milk or a thicker version of coconut cream for a truly wonderful taste treat.

6 organic eggs

3 cups goat milk, or organic milk

8 tbsp. coconut sugar (a brown color, and will make the drink a darker color)

3 tsp. vanilla

1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp. ground cinnamon

1. Beat eggs in a large bowl with electric beater.

2. Add milk and combine.

3. Add coconut sugar and combine.

4. Continue beating until mixture thickens slightly.

5. Add vanilla and spices and combine.

6. Place in a covered glass jar and refrigerate for at least 3 hours until well chilled.

Note; You may add some Christmas Cheer if you desire.

Homemade Coconut Milk

Have a healthy happy week!
