The Art of Gluten-Free Sourdough Baking: Cinnamon Raisin Muffins – Gluten Free and Egg Free

Cinnamon Raisin Muffins

If you’ve been following Cultures for Health for a while, you know we empathize deeply with our customers when it comes to food allergies. Even more so, we relate well when they have multiple food allergies. It’s bad enough to be allergic to gluten, but to then also have an egg allergy? Gluten-free breads and baked goods just never rival their wheat counterparts. I got over that ideal that you could directly replace traditional sourdough long, long ago. Doomed, we feel doomed! When we can have bread or baked goods again?…

My First DIY Pear Cider

pear cider

Our new homebrewing section of wine, beer, and cider can be a bit overwhelming to a newbie! I am not familiar with brewing these, so I was hesitant at first to try them. I chose the pear cider pouch, and with a few basic homebrewing pieces of equipment I successfully made cider. It’s not a super long process either, about 3 to 4 weeks. I am currently waiting another week for it to become “smoother” although you can bet I tasted it when the directions said I could! You can find the equipment in individual pieces at your local brewing shop, or purchase a kit from us like the Deluxe or Standard Brewcraft USA Homebrewer’s Starter Kit. WARNING! Be sure to read through all the directions before getting started, as once you cut open the cider pouch you must begin the fermenting process….

Soap With Pippa

Soapmaking with Pippa

She’s crazy about this addicting and self-satisfying hobby, and she does house calls….

My Try at the DIY Hand Sanitizer Gel

Jerri's Hand Sanitizer

I am usually anti-hand sanitizer. I cringe at the sight of little bottles that hang on to your purse or belt loops. They are just not effective to actually CLEANSE the hands, although if your hands are fairly clean they will kill some germs if there is enough alcohol in it. And I just don’t trust commercial manufacturers… so if I make my own, maybe I’ll get hyped over hand sanitizer and carry it too….
