Re: Whatcha Reading?

I'm reading Wild Ones by Jon Mooallem. It's a look at what "wildlife" and "nature" mean in the age of ecosystem distortion/failure because of human dominance and increasingly urban lifestyles. He is treating this subject by looking at three animals - the polar bear, a threatened ...

Re: Artisan Vegan Cheese

I used one of my glass sprouting mason jars for the initial step of germinating the seeds (I used wheat berries) because I have a little strainer on the top that makes it easy to change out the water, and then I used regular plastic quart-size to-go containers to let it finish fermenting. I figured ...

Re: Whatcha Reading?

Wild is definitely a fairy tale. I'll check out A Walk in the Woods. Bryson is great :) I don't know if this is fairy tale-like, but I just saw that this book won a National Outdoor Book Award for the Outdoor Literature category: "I Promise Not to Suffer" authored by Gail Storey. At the b...

Re: Artisan Vegan Cheese

I'm so glad it worked out!

I made the amazake with sweet brown rice, so it was definitely more fiber-full than the traditional amazake, which is usually made with white rice. I had mine cold, but now I'll go ahead and try it hot.

Re: Artisan Vegan Cheese

I guess it turned out okay enough. I made some of the basic cashew cheese out of it, and lo and behold, Mr Q really liked it on crackers. It's hard to tell whether he likes the crackers or the cheese more, though. I took one container of rejuvelac that had been refrigerated for a few days and left i...

Re: Artisan Vegan Cheese

I think these variations are weird and/or amazing. Champagne? Wine? Popular Rejuvelac Variations Champagne rejuvelac is prepared by using millet grains. The grains are sprouted for a day or two and then lightly bruised. These bruised grains are then soaked with one tablespoon of raisins. The mixture...

Re: Artisan Vegan Cheese

Welp. I am currently at step one of making...rejuvelac. Wish me luck.

I had some Kite Hill vegan cultured cheese a while back and really liked it, so I would like to see what I can do on my own. Kite Hill is good, but a little on the spendy side. We shall see.

Re: Whatcha Reading?

Do you think Wild fell into the Eat Pray Love category as I described below? Because though I am intensely interested in the Pacific Crest Trail and thru-hiking in general, I stayed away from Wild because it seemed too fairy-tale-ish. I enjoyed A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson, which was about hik...

Re: Whatcha Reading?

I liked Eat Pray Love at first - but then it became a fairy tale for adults and not a real story. I did not believe any of the events that happened in Bali or how she found her soul-mate. I think there was a highly embellished kernel of truth underlying the book, but the rest was designed to draw th...
