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!

Butterscotch Granola

We want to phase out packaged cereal, even though we have only but thelow sugar high grain varieties for the last 10 years, we are ready to take it the next level of homemade/scratch living. :-) Granola is an easy way to do that. So we like to experiament with different combinations of flavors, to keep things interesting. We mixed up a very tasty combination this morning. No measuring, just drizzel and dump (and mix and taste if needed) as you go.

Butterscotch Flavoring (I use Frontier.)
Vanilla Extract
Raw Honey (I used Alfalfa)
Pumpkin Seeds
Raw Sunflower Seeds
Flax Seeds
Shredded Coconut
Peanut Oil

I toasted on a low heat (175) , checking every so often it was in for a couple hours, I think.

Then I like to add dried fruit AFTER it is baked (or dehydrated). I find it stays nicer and tastes "fresher" that way. Baking the dried fruit results in it getting too hard or dry for my liking...it also can burn if you like to do your granola at a higher temp. for a shorter time.

I added a lot of dried apples (diced) and a few golden raisins.
