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!

Whole Wheat Soda Bread - Crockpot

This is a delightfully rustic bread that develops a hard crust as it cools. It is wonderfully easy and so satisfying with soup, salad or pasta!

2C Wheat or Spelt flour
3/4 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp salt
1 1/4C buttermilk
  • In a large bowl mix all the the dry ingrediants together.
  • Make a well in the center and add buttermilk in the well. Mix until just blended.
  • Grease a 2 qrt mixing bowl and transfer dough into it. (I use stainless, but if you have glass that will work, just put a cloth in the bottom of the crock to set it on.)
  • Cover bowl tightly with foil (secure with string or rubber band to keep the moisture out)
  • Place covered bowl in crock
  • Pour boiling water around the bowl 1" deep.
  • Put the lid on and cook on High for 2 1/2-3 hours

Makes a small round loaf (8 slices). The inside is a moist soft texture while the outside crust gets rim and hardens as it cools.
