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!

Sugar and Spice Almonds

As much as we love raw almonds all by themselves, we also like to dress them up sometimes! This recipe can be used with any nut of choice or even mixed nuts. It assumes the nuts are salted, so if they are not - you might throw a few dashes on your nuts after you have tossed them in spices it goes nicely wiht the sweetness of the sugar.

6C Nuts of of choice
2 egg whites
2T Orange Juice (or a half an orange squeezed)
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp dr. ginger
1 tsp ground all spice
1- 1 1/2 C Maple Sugar (or Rapedura or Sucanat or sugar of choice)

  • Whisk together OJ and egg whites until foamy (soft peaks)

  • Gently mix in sugar and spices

  • Add nuts and mix to coat

  • Spread on a large ungreased cookie sheet (in a single layer - it might take two sheets)

  • Bake at 275F, stiring every 15 minutes for a total of 45-50 minutes, until crisp and lighlty browned.

  • This recipe fills a half gallon jar to the brim with a few "
    "taster snacks" for the cook (and her kids!) on the side. :-)

    These make wonderful make ahead treats on a snacky Shabbat lunch table! They are also nice to have a small pretty bowl setting on a night stand in a guest room with a cold bottle water for a (overnight) guest who has just arrived to "settle in" to their room and freshen up. :-)

    If you like this recipe you might like my Tamari Almonds too.
