JAM and CHEESE

Yesterday was such a beautiful day. I was picking black currant with my 3 girls,
Hildur
(28) Julia (14) Athena (8 - step daughter).
After wards we went home and made some really delicious
JAM
I will give you the recipe here - so easy and healthy yummmmmmmmmy

Black currant JAM
2 pint black currant

3/4 cups agave nectar
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 Tbsp shredded lime peel
put everything in a food processor and blend for about 30 -60 sec.
this jam keeps for 10-14 days in the fridge, and for many weeks in the freezer

And then to the CHEESE
I was soooooooo addicted to cheese when I changed my diet - OMG - I thought my live was over and out - and I would be bored until my days end.......
Today I know that the live is just beginning when you change your diet -
soooooooooooooo many good things to learn we are so blessed guys :)

I will show you my favorite cheese - so simple and just brilliant. You can use it as a "cheese" sauce on pasta, lasagna, salad or........ You can dehydrate it and then you get a beautiful "parmesan look a like" thing. So many ways to make magic with this simple recipe.

"parmesan look a like"
1 cup cashews, soaked for 2-4 hours
1 cup pine nuts, soaked for 2-4 hours
2 cups rejuvelac
(or 1 1/2 cup water + 1/2 cup lime/lemon juice)
3 Tbsp nutritional yeast
1/2 Tsp himalaya salt
put everything in a blender and blend until smooth. 2 cups of mixture on a teflax shead on a dehydrator tray and even it out with a spatula. dehydrate for 6 hrs on each side or until it is dry.


love you all
