  • SWEET MARY'S WOOD BUTTER MOLD - CHERRY

    Mold and press out a one-pound block of your own butter, or smaller blocks depending upon how far back you pull the press, with this hand-made butter mold! These molds are designed and manufactured by Homesteader's Supply here in the USA. Included is a free culture that turns your butter into a flavorful and healthy product full of beneficial lacto-bateria, so you get the same health benefits as yogurt. Also provided are instructions for using the butter press, and a receipe for making butter with the culture. Each butter press (made of hard Maple or hard Cherry wood) is finished by craftsmen, and then oiled with 100% Non-GMO organic Coconut Oil. Simply reapply oil when needed. The word "butter" is carved into the side of each mold. Made with precision, each follower fits into the mold extremely well so that little butter is left behind after pressing out your one-pound block of butter. Press room temperature butter over and over with the same mold without having to soak the mold or freeze the butter. From Homesteader's Supply: So, how did we get the design and name for our wonderful butter mold? Back in the early 1900s, my great Aunt Mary lived on a farm with her husband Henry and their many critters. Her favorite cow was her Jersey named Sweet Marabelle that produced the most cream of any of their 4 other dairy girls. Mary churned all that cream into the best butter around that area. But, with so much butter to trade and give away to family and friends, she had Henry make her a mold that would press out block after block "swift as the wind" as Aunt Mary used to say. That's when Henry nicknamed her Sweet Mary! Although Sweet Mary and her butter mold are gone, the memories remain!

  • THE HONEY CONNOISSEUR

    From honey experts C. Marina Marchese and Kim Flottum comes this comprehensive introduction to the origin, flavor, and culinary uses of more than 30 varietals of honey, from ubiquitous clover to tangy star thistle to rich, smoky buckwheat.

    Like wine, cheese, coffee and chocolate, honey has emerged as an artisanal obsession. Its popularity at farmers markets and specialty food stores has soared as retailers capitalize on the trend. The Honey Connoisseur teaches consumers everything they need to know about how to taste, select and use a diverse selection of honey.

    After a brief explanation of how bees produce honey, the authors introduce the concept of terroir, the notion that soil, weather and other natural phenomena can affect the taste of honey. As with wines, knowing the terroir of a honey varietal helps to inform an understanding of its flavor.

    The book goes on to give a thorough course in the origins of more than 30 different honeys as well as step-by-step instructions on how to taste honey, describe its flavor and determine what other flavors will pair best with it. Also included are simple recipes such as dressings, marinades, beverages and quick-and-easy desserts.

    Beautifully illustrated and designed, The Honey Connoisseur is the perfect book for foodies and locavores alike.
