[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNjI5NDU5XzhBQjc3NzM5] Finding Natural Yeast Sources [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w-GmnAD4J7E[/youtube] Some time back, I posted a video from a Japanese website. A woman there was interested to create breads from natural yeast sources. She became well known for it, and was interviewed for a cooking program. Her method is precisely like the form found at the link below. http://www.tacticalintelligence.net/blog/how-to-make-homemade-yeast.htm In this link they use apples, in her version she used raisins. Raisins produced the most “fizzing action” so it was assumed that due to the higher fermentation that more yeast was present. That's a good link by the way, and kudos to the writers of that article. I know raisins work. Naturally this is the basis for making wine. Yeasts from certain regions in France are known to interact with the grapes grown there, and due to this difference plus the style of making the wine, you get a different tasting wine. I guess that there could be a discernible taste difference in a trained chef's tongue to detect the differences in say the yeast produced for bread in Missouri versus Georgia. Using raisins has been a tried and true method in Europe. I found a video from Austria that uses this method to make yeast bread too. Regardless as the tactical intelligence article discusses, any fruit or grain that has some sugar in it will interact with the wild yeasts in the air. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NYmY7PgENME[/youtube] That method is utilized by incarcerated people to make jailhouse wine called Pruno. They take whatever fruit/grain/vegetables they can find, say ketchup, or like the pioneers...corn stalks...and use that to get an additional harvest of ethanol. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GEevbIv0M0g[/youtube] Now Peace Corp volunteers take old knowledge from pioneer skills and combine that with modern techniques and teach those methods in 3rd world nations in order to improve their lives. They might help with wells, or sanitation or making some chemical from local ingredients to improve a mortar so they can build stronger wall. But they also might be in a country where it might be frowned upon to drink or purchase ethanol. So if they want to do that, they might have to make it themselves. A common way is to make raisin wine since they ferment consistently, and the ingredients are so simple to find anywhere. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rwmPMsiiKXk[/youtube] Three parts to it. You don't need to add the yeast. It will naturally be acquired from the air. http://www.grouprecipes.com/103620/homemade-raisin-wine.html The point is that as self-reliant people, we want to find natural sources to harvest from, and by doing so acquire yeast to use for baking, making wine, making vinegar, etc. Raisin and persimmon and maple wine were the most common fermented beverages among the pioneers. The Apaches made Tizwin from corn but it was very tame. Of course apple jack was made from pressed apples made into cider which shortly thereafter "turned" or fermented into apple jack. Letting it go longer will produce vinegar. Since all of that is useful, we end up with something we can use at each stage, and finally for pickling and extending the harvest. [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
