Haybox cookers are next on GF Radio, what is a Haybox Cooker? Listen as eric describes how a haybox cooker is constructed and how it works. The history of these cookers is interesting, and we found several neat blogs while researching this thing.
We found a great self sufficiency blog, Growing Things and Making Things, that talks about the haybox cooker
Also on that blog was post about using only water to wash your hair, and Sarah tells us how to wash your hair using only baking soda. [ i can attest that Sarah's hair looks great ]
Yet another viewer has discovered our No Knead Bread video and No Knead Bread recipe adapted from Jim Lehman, and the viewer has some suggestions:
"Now, you ought to do a video on ALL the possibilities available for the Sullivan Bread. I do
a garlic/onion, onion, onion and Italian seasonings, garlic and Mediterranean seasonings,
sun-dried tomato and black olive, and pepperoni and cheese besides the standard recipe.
My wife wants me to try a roasted red pepper (chopped) with garlic, onion and Italian or
Greek seasonings. My son is after me to try a bacon/onion and sharp cheddar cheese one.
At first I had doubts if ANY of the "flavored" Sullivan breads would turn out, but they did and
BETTER than the expensive bakery Artisans. Of course almost all the add-ins are dried
or not refrigerated and added with the base ingredients and let rise over night. The cheese is
added just prior to the two hour "rise". "
We then move onto to Steven, of Tiny House Listings' photos and plan for brick pizza oven that uses no mortar or rails, you can see the photos here
Love to get recipes and photos from you all.
Who is Sara the producer?
Guess @GFMike doesn't need a trailer, since he doesn't have anything to pull it with (until now). Sounds like a nice ride.
But I've always thought a 4x8 trailer, particularly one you could stand on end up against the fence when you're not using it, was the best solution for most suburban families.
4x8 seems ideal, big enough to go get plywood or wallboard home, can carry a sofa or table home from a sale. I've moved beehives with mine and half a ton of mulch at one time. Little utility trailers are dirt cheap and cost almost nothing to insure or license.
ERIC J. Sara is Sarah, or maybe Sally. What more needs to be said? In another life, they called her Jiminey Crickett. She cracks the whip on Eric to turn out a product ;->
Yea, Yea. I'd be a touch iffy about the Haybox cooking. Now that Jim's finished his Food Safety Certificate course, I have him breathing down my neck about food safety too. You could bring the stew or soup up to a boil to kill any bacteria, but isn't that kind of against the point? And that can result in a "gamey" or off taste.
I use Baking Soda and Cider Vinegar on my hair too. Just tried the washing with water thing and I'm sure it could extend my time between shampooing with Baking Soda. Oily hair thingy. Sure you know all about that Eric. 🙂
Great Show Again Guys and Sarah!
Oh, PS on the not using shampoo on your hair. It takes a couple weeks for your body to stop over producing oils, so invest in a good hat.
