Homemade Healing Shea Cream

Homemade Healing Shea Cream | Musings of a Modern Hippie

I was given the opportunity to try this shea butter in exchange for my honest feedback.

True unrefined, organic, raw, shea butter is often hard to find, as many manufacturers either contaminate it with other oils and dyes, or it's not in fact, shea butter at all, but a similar, less expensive product called Kpangnan Butter (pronounced "painya").

Real Shea butter is an off- white or ivory-colored fat extracted from the nut of the African shea tree (Vitellaria paradoxa).

Crunchy Fermented Sweet Pickles

Crunchy Fermented Sweet Pickles

You may have seen my recipe for Crunchy Fermented Dill Pickles. This is my sweet pickle version! Like the dills, I wanted to make lacto-fermented pickles, as opposed to vinegar-based pickles this year because lacto-fermentation makes for super healing foods. These pickles are crunchy and sweet, with just the right combination of zesty, sweet, and saltiness.

Crunchy Fermented Dill Pickle Recipe

Crunchy Fermented Dill Pickles

This summer has been unusually wet and cool here in NY. And while it means worrying about flooding basements and unripe tomatoes, it also means tons and tons of cucumbers. And lets face it, not having to water the garden at all has been a nice relief. Tons of cucumbers means tons of pickles because there's only so much cucumber salad a family of 3 can eat! I wanted to make lacto-fermented pickles, as opposed to vinegar-based pickles this year because lacto-fermentation makes for super healing foods. These pickles are crunchy and tart, with just the right combination of dill, garlic, and saltiness. They just might be my new favorite snack.
