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!

Home Shalom's Hot Dog Soup - Crock

This soup is made with organic all beef hot dogs, that skinless or lamb cased to keep Biblical Kosher. You can use any appropriate sausage in it's place. It is nice with crusty bread or cornbread, but is hearty enough that it doesn't "need bread" to make a meal. My kids LOOOOVE this soup. This soup serves about about 12 it is easy to reduce if its too much, by lessing the broth and beans and potatoes.

1. Soak 1-2 lb dry white beans* over night and drain. (or use 6 cans)

2. Put the following ingredients in the crock pot:

1 pound hot dogs, cut into chunks
3-4 medium potatoes, chopped small
1/2 tsp pepper
3-4 carrots, sliced 1/2 inch
Soaked or canned beans
2T dr parsley (or 1/2C fresh added at the end of the cooking time)
salt and pepper to taste

3. In a skillet, saute 1-2 chopped celery, chopped, 1 chopped onion, 3T butter until translucent. Than add 2T flour and mix well and slowly pour in about 1/2C chicken broth to create a gravy like consistency. (The French call this melted butter and flour base, a roux - pronounced "roo". It is a wonderful method to start scratch soups, gravies and sauces of all kinds!) Pour this sauce over the ingredients in the crock pot.

4. Pour 8C + chicken broth over the everything in the crock. Cook on low 8-10 hours or high 6 hours or until beans are tender.
* You can sub pinto beans or make a mix. I just prefer the white in this recipe.
