submitted by PFC staffer, Jamie Hardy
recipe from Nature's Organic Grist

Perhaps you've heard of the Ancient Grain 'Freekah Greenwheat', but you are not sure what to do with it? Try this super healthy, delicious salad by itself or serve on leafy greens!

2 cups cracked freekeh
5 cups water
1 cup sliced almonds
2/3 cup chopped dried apricots
½ cup chopped chives

For the dressing: ¼ cup good quality apple cider vinegar
1 Tbsp grade B maple syrup
1 Tbsp powdered ginger
½ cup grape seed oil
salt to taste

Combine freekeh and 5 cups of water in a pot; bring to a boil and cook 1 minute. Reduce heat to low and cover. Simmer for 25-30 minutes or until desired tenderness is reached.

Allow freekeh to cool completely; then add other ingredients and gently stir in dressing to coat. Let sit for 10-15 minutes to absorb flavors before serving. Serve with greens! It is also delicious with raisins or cranberries!


Mulled Apple Cider

submitted by PFC Staffer, Abbie Miller from the LovetoKnowHow Herbs website.

Mulled cider is one of my favorite ways to warm up on a cold fall day and you can easily mix your own mulling spices using herbs found in our bulk spice selection.

6 cinnamon sticks
1 small whole nutmeg
1/2 cup whole cloves
1/2 cup whole allspice
Grated peel of one whole orange

Chip the cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice with a hammer. Place with other ingredients in a storage container. To use, place two tablespoons of mixture in a small muslin bag and add to four cups of beverage. Simmer and enjoy!
