Food Quotes


"No therapy or drug known to modern medical science can rebuild tissue that has been damaged by disease or trauma. Food alone can accomplish this feat. It is for this reason that nutrition is an indispensable weapon against disease".
Dr. Bernard Jensen (1908-2001)

The Perfect Pie Crust


Ingredients:
3 3/4 cups all-purpose unbleached flour
1 tablespoon coconut palm sugar
1/2 to 1 tablespoon unprocessed sea salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 3/4 cups cold, unsalted butter
2/3 cup ice-cold water
2 tablespoons sour cream (not the low-fat stuff)
1 teaspoon raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar

Directions: In a very large bowl combine flour, sugar, salt, and baking powder. With a pastry blender cut in butter, leaving chunks the size of peas. Combine water, sour cream and vinegar. Add liquid all at once to the flour mixture. Quickly stir to distribute; do not over mix. The dough should be slightly crumbly. Let rest in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours of overnight. The finished dough should break, not stretch. Divide into three portions and shape into disks. Use at once or wrap and refrigerate up to 3 days or freeze up to one month. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator if frozen. Makes 3 single-crust pastries.
