Food, Glorious Food

With the coming winter months, wholesome warm foods are usually on the menu. If you are cooking on gas or electricity, try soaking your legumes or whole grains overnight in abundant water and bring to the boil the next morning.

Once boiled, wrap the pot in a blanket then place in a polystyrene box (not nice but in existence so good to re-use) or an Esky and leave to slow cook until lunchtime when you may want to finish cooking for that meal or leave until the evening meal when it may be perfectly cooked. You will cut your energy use in the process.

Slow cooking makes for a beautiful taste, lovely texture and more vibrant food. Broken grains especially, oxidise over time and hence food value degrades. Make your fermented foods (kimchee, sauerkraut etc) now to serve with these hot pots during the colder months. Delish!
