"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


Simple Butternut Soup Recipe

Chop the following into large chunks and put in crock-pot:

  • 1 Squash (butternut or acorn)
  • 4 small Turnips
  • 1 large Onion
  • Raw Milk 1- 1.5 cups (or wait and add in blender step)
and herbs to taste:
  • Coriander
  • Tarragon
  • Parsley
  • Ground Black Pepper
  • Sea Salt


Cover with water and cook for about 8 hours. (Try 1-2 hours on high, then turn down to low till just before supper time!)

Then remove the squash skin (which should be completely separated from the now mushy squash), pour into blender, add 1/4-3/4 cup cream and salt to taste; blend till texture is smooth and creamy. And that's it!

 Serve up with fresh hot bread and plenty of butter!
