  • ThumbnailIt was the depression. We had a small farm with such good soil that we could grow anything planted. We had potatoes, corn, beets, turnips, broccoli, cauliflower, and lots of good things. We had an orchard with trees laden with apples, pears, plums, and cherries. We had a few cows that gave us milk to drink. […]

  • Love love love your “pantry.” Your pickles look yummy. I am having a problem finding good pickle recipes. Did you share your canning recipes for pickles (Kosher dill and dill butter) in Farm Bell? If you haven’t – would you? I’d like to make your pickles… Pleeeeeease… Farmer

  • Hi CindyP! I thought the yogurt actually make the bread moist but more crumbly. I wouldn’t hesitate to use it again – I almost always have yogurt but often run out of milk! Happy farming!

  • ThumbnailI love cornbread. In fact, everyone here loves cornbread. What’s not to love? Cornbread is so easy to make. I don’t even bother with those ‘just add water’ mixes. However, there is something you must have to make delicious cornbread–a cast iron skillet. You will just have to trust me here and take a leap of faith. […]

  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees. Combine corn meal, flour, sugar, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Combine milk, oil, and egg in a small bowl. Mix well. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture; stir until until blended. Pour into a preheated cast iron skillet. Place the cast iron skillet into […]
