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!

Tamari Almonds

One of our favorite salty snacks is Tamari Almonds. I used to buy them by the case, when I had the Health Food Business. They always remind me of my brother - he'll happily empty a jar for me when he visits...but we live so far away, that doesn't happen nearly often enough. :-( So this recipe is for you Ryan! Much Love, Sis


6C of Whole Almonds (raw)
1/2 C Tamari (Soy Sauce), or Braggs Liquid Aminos*
1/2 tsp Sugar (of choice, I use maple), or honey
  • Put oven rack in the upper two-thirds of your oven and prehet it to 300 degrees
  • Spread almonds out on two baking sheets in a single layer
  • Toast for 15 minutes
  • Meanwhile - mix tamari and sugar in a large bowl
  • Add hot almonds into tamari and mix to coat evenly - every so often, letting marinate for 5 minutes.
  • Use a slotted spoon to put almonds back on the baking sheets in a single layer. (Discarding or saving tamari to use for dinner that night!)
  • Bake again for 25 minutes; switching trays and stirring the pans once half way through the process.
  • The outsides will turn dark brown and the insides will turn golden.
  • Let cool and store in an airtight container. (I love to use 1/2 gallon Mason Jars)

These make great snacks on game night, great toppings for salads, a nice filler on a buffet table or tasty homemade gifts.

* If this mix ends up being a little salty for you try using 1/3C Tamari plus 3T water. They won't be as salty. If your almonds are already salted, this might be something to consider.
