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!

Plain Brown Rice - Crockpot

This has become my favorite way to cook rice! I get a big pot full of rice to use for dinner and later for leftovers, and I don't have to pay attention to my stove (which boils hot!). I mix in all kinds of seasoning and flavors, as the mood strikes...but I am going to share with you the staple way to make rice in your cooker.

5C Water or Broth
2C Brown Rice
2 tsp salt
1T butter or coconut oil

Grease the walls of the crock, out your rice and water in.
Cook on High for 2 and a quarter to 2 1/2 hours or Low for 5 hours

* Rice tip - No matter the amount of rice or the size of the pot or wether you are cooking it in a steamer, on the stove on in the crock remember this tip: pour your rice in the bottom and gently pour water/broth over top until it reaches 1" above the rice. You will never need to measure your rice or your water again. It comes out perfect every time!
