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!

Great Northern Beans - Crock

This is a yummy way to cook white beans. Beans are such a wonderful staple to keep in your pantry and eat regularly! They are inexpensive, tasty and high in nutrition food value! I love to serve this with cornbread, sourdough or tortilla chips. We always double this recipe. To make a crock full.

1lb Great Northern Beans (white kidneys, or navy beans)
1 onion, chopped
2-3 carrots, sliced into small chunks
2 ribs of celery, chopped
8 cloves of garlic, crushed
2T bullion (I use Better than Bullion)*
1 dr bay leaf
2T oil
1 butter
salt and pepper to taste (at the end)

  • Soak bean overnight, drain and rinse. (If you crock is not in use, do it right in your crock. No sense making another dish dirty!)
  • Put beans back in the crock and add remaining ingredients. Pour enough water to cover and sit 1 inch over the beans.
  • Cook on Low 8-10 hours (may need to add a little more water, peek at it)

*If the beans are too wet, take out a cup of means and puree or mash them and add them back into the pot to thicken (or stick an immersion blender in for a quick second).

Serves 6-7

* You used to have to get this boullion a the health food stores, but I was tickled to see it on my local Walmart shelf!
