Ketchup Recipe

Not only is this lactofermented ketchup rich in food enzymes and probiotics, its flavor is deeply robust with the rich-sweetness of concentrated tomato. Adding traditional allspice and cloves bring a level of depth that is often missing from the cloying sweet varieties of ketchup you find in the grocery store.

Lip Balm Recipe

Lips were feeling parched here in the Land of Enchantment so made a bunch of homemade lip balm. It is SO moisturizing! I put it on at night before going to bed. Here is the recipe if you want to make your own (great project to do with your kids!)

4 ounces almond oil (I used calendula flower oil for extra moisturizing/healing effects; you can substitute oils)
4 ounces shea butter (I also love mango butter)
1 teaspoon vitamin E oil
2 ounces beeswax
40-50 drops natural flavoring or essential oil (optional)

Use a double boiler and melt oil and shea butter together on low heat. Add beeswax and melt. Put some in a container and set in refrigerator for about 5 minutes to ensure that it is right consistency. If you need a little more beeswax, add it and check again. 2 ounces of beeswax to 8 ounces of oils is generally a pretty good amount. Now add your shaved beeswax and any natural flavoring if you want it (vanilla extract, peppermint essential oil, etc). Put in your containers, let set for 30-40 minutes. Put on caps and you are good to go!

Note: can purchase lip tube containers, shea butter, etc. from Mountain Rose Herbs.

Gluten in Tazo Tea

Tea- Some tea bags contain additives (usually labelled as “natural flavors”) that contain a small trace of gluten. The Tazo brand popularly sold at most starbucks locations has this additive and therefore is not gluten-free. The following flavors definitely contain gluten: Green Ginger, Tazo Honeybush, Lemon Ginger and Tea Lemonade. This probably won’t affect most people unless you have celiac disease and are vulnerable to small traces of gluten.
