Cinnamon Sourdough Bread

I’ve been looking for a way to use up these rye flakes I had bought from Azure. As I was perusing online, I found this recipe that I thought looked promising. I decided to try it out with a few tweaks of my own. One could use oat flakes or barley flakes here in place of the rye if desired. Knowing the nutritional benefits of the ancient grain of rye, I just really wanted to incorporate it into our diet somehow! Here’s the recipe I came up with:

Cinnamon Sourdough Bread

4 loaves

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups active sourdough starter (I left mine a little thinner this time for this recipe)
  • 4 cups raw dairy (or coconut milk)
  • 10 cups freshly milled spelt flour (or other organic flour of choice – the more gluten, the longer it should be allowed to ferment for maximum benefits)
  • 4 cups rye flakes
  • 2 Tb of real salt
  • 1 Tb baking soda
  • 2 Tb cinnamon
  • 4 Tb palm shortening or butter

Method:

  • Night before you’d like to bake it, mix together everything but the last 4 ingredients.
  • Knead in Bosch or mixer for 5 minutes.
  • Put mixture in fridge overnight (if using wheat, leave out on counter).
  • Next morning, knead in the last 4 ingredients until well combined.
  • Divide up into 4 pans, or dutch ovens.
  • Grease and dust pans (I use palm shortening and brown rice flour)
  • Allow to set for 2 hours until risen slightly.
  • Bake in a preheated oven at 415 for 15 minutes.
  • Turn oven down to 350 and bake another 35 minutes.
  • Take out an allow to cool 15-20 minutes before slicing.
  • Enjoy!

Blood Pressure Lowered – Naturally

Recently a client of mine who is healing from a major health hurdle. The client’s blood pressure had gone way up and of course was prescribed drugs to bring it down. Since he/she did not want to use the drugs as a first choice, I suggested taking 2 teaspoons a day of the Green Pastures cod liver oil/butter oil blend daily to balance out his/her fats. Within a day of taking the cod liver oil, the blood pressure had gone done considerably. We expect it to continue to normal as his/her body continues to get the right fats to balance out his/her system. The K2 from the butter oil and synergistic combination of the D vitamin from the cod liver create quite the unstoppable duo. Praise God for simple solutions!
