Welcome to Home Shalom!

Welcome to Home Shalom and Shalom Farm. We pray your visit here be blessed. We are learning to walk in the Ways (Torah) of our Father YHWH and follow Y'shua, His Messiah until He returns to "set things straight". We call it a "Messi-Life". Our walk is neither tidy nor perfect, but it is filled with passion, devotion and desire to serve our King. We are learning to be humble servants, and to be good stewards of the things that He has entrusted to us: His Word, our marriage, our children, our family, our community, our health, and our farm. Hitch your horse and stay a while--our door is always open!

Coconut Cooler

This drink was inspired by some friends of ours (the Jacobs) whom we had a LOVELY time spending last Shabbat with.

Coconut Cooler
1C raw (unsalted) cashews
1 young coconut
1 can of coconut milk
1 glurg of agave nectar to taste (i am guessing i used between 1/4-1/2c)
a splash of vanilla extract
a splash of coconut extract
Ice

In a high powered blender (I use a Vitamix), put your cashews and the meat and water from the young coconut; Blend until smooth. Add remaining ingredients with ice on top to fill. Blend up and serve immediately. It will have an "icy" or slushy texture. It is a lightly sweet creamy coconuty drink that is very refreshing. A great summertime treat. It can make 4-5 large glasses or 8-10 small ones.

You could also make yummy popsicles out of this; just use a little water instead of ice and pour into your popsicle molds* and freeze.

*dixie cups with a stick or tupperware molds work well

Another thing that came to mind that would be tasty (but I haven't tried yet) would be to throw in some fresh pineapple!! YUM!
