Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating.

Finding out you have a food allergy can be devastating. I think my first thought was, "What does that mean?" You ask your doctor and he says just avoid that food. It's just a skin test. They aren't entirely accurate.

I am going to attempt to give you ideas and recipes on how to avoid corn. It can be quite the challenge.

Sorry that my blog is evolving into a little bit of everything in life.

Drying Celery

I grew celery for the first time. I dehydrated it. Chop off white bottoms. Cut into 6 inch pieces. Blanch 1 minute. Chop into 1/4 inch pieces. Dry between 115 - 135. I dried the leaves not blanched. I read a suggestion to just freeze the leaves, but they were really big, so I dried them.

Finding corn free food - Tree Squirrel

My first tree squirrel first shot to the head! I guarantee it's corn free!

Beef Sausage

I just added this to my recipe page along with Kristy's recipe of livingitupcornfree
Ground Beef
In my coffee spice only grinder I powdered dry Sage, Fennel Seed, Rosemary, Oregano. Add Salt, Powdered or minced Onion, minced Garlic, 1/4 cup water. Mix together and refrigerate over night.
I use McCormick Fennel seed, Real Salt. Home Grown: Powdered green onion, garlic, sage, rosemary, and oregano. These spices are pretty easy to grow.

No Longer a Consumer of Ready to Eat Food!

Just wondering what it would be like to post a screen shot of my Facebook post.

Fruit Leather and Apple Chips

I've been making apple chips and apple sauce. I have 9 trays for my Nesco Professional Dehydrator. I can dry about 7 apples at a time. It takes around 12 hours to dry apples about 1/4 inch thick. I use the medium blade on my mandolin. I have left over applesauce from last year. I found that I can make fruit leather with it. I only have 2 fruit leather trays. I start drying the apples after a couple hours the apples have shrunk enough that I can rearrange the trays to gain 2 empty trays. I put the fruit leather insert on them and 1 pint of apples sauce fits per tray. I let it dry over night and then have wonderful fruit leather and didn't waste any food!
